    Apr 24, 2012, 5:17 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Brewers v Arizona Diamondbacks

    Last week Chris Narveson was diagnosed with a torn rotator cuff and today the Brewers left-hander announced that he’ll undergo season-ending surgery after a second opinion confirmed the initial findings. Milwaukee has the rotation depth to withstand the loss of Narveson, but he’s been a solid fourth or fifth starter for the past two-plus seasons…

    UPDATE: He’s back on. Yawn. *********** 3:15 PM: Jose Canseco’s various ramblings on Twitter ceased being interesting to me months ago, because at some point that type of thing just gets weird and sad and … well, basically like seeing the same car accident on the side of the road you travel to work every…

  4. Non-displaced rib fracture sends Jason Bay to disabled list

    Apr 24, 2012, 1:50 PM EDT

    Jason Bay

    Jason Bay left the second game of yesterday’s doubleheader after injuring his ribs attempting a diving catch and today the Mets put him on the disabled list with a non-displaced fracture. No timetable yet for his return, but at the very least a non-displaced fracture is better than a displaced fracture and Adam Rubin of…

    Apr 24, 2012, 12:46 PM EDT

    Stephen Drew

    Stephen Drew‘s surgically repaired ankle felt good enough over the weekend that he was able to go through what Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic described as “a hard workout at Chase Field that included extensive time on the basepaths.” Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson revealed that Drew felt “a little sore” after the weekend workout,…

    Toronto placed closer Sergio Santos on the disabled list with a sore shoulder Saturday and he sought a second opinion from Dr. Lewis Yocum in California, with an MRI exam yesterday showing no structural damage. That’s the good news. The bad news, according to Vinnie Duber of MLB.com, is that Santos will be completely shut…

  11. Hideki Matsui expected to sign with Rays

    Apr 23, 2012, 5:31 PM EDT

    Hideki Matsui

    Hideki Matsui went unsigned this offseason and was rarely even linked to any teams, but now Jack Curry of YES Network reports that 38-year-old “is expected to soon sign a minor-league deal” with the Rays. It’s an odd fit, as Tampa Bay has gotten very good production from Luke Scott as their primary designated hitter…

    Apr 23, 2012, 4:49 PM EDT

    beltre ap

    Adrian Beltre missed more than a month with hamstring problems last season, so there was plenty of worrying in Texas when he exited Saturday’s game with a left hamstring injury. However, according to T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com an MRI exam showed only a mild strain and Beltre is officially listed as day-to-day. He’s not in…

  14. Cardinals get good news on Jon Jay’s shoulder injury

  15. Freddy Sanchez targeting May 11 return to Giants

    Apr 23, 2012, 3:15 PM EDT

    freddy sanchez batting getty

    Freddy Sanchez has had so many false starts and setbacks with his surgically repaired shoulder that recovery timetables seem sort of silly at this point, but the Giants have a new one anyway. Sanchez’s minor-league rehab assignment begins today and manager Bruce Bochy told Andrew Baggarly of CSNBayArea.com that the Giants have mapped out an…

  16. Mike Aviles denies “very ugly scene” with Bobby Valentine

    Bobby Valentine, Mike Aviles, Jacoby Ellsbury

    Bill Madden of the New York Daily News wrote a column about Bobby Valentine in which he reports that the Red Sox manager “got all over shortstop Mike Aviles in what sources described as ‘a very ugly scene’ during infield drills.” That was during spring training and Madden claims that the incident led to a…

  17. Bryce Harper hit his first Triple-A homer

    Apr 23, 2012, 12:46 PM EDT

    Bryce Harper

    Bryce Harper had a big Triple-A debut, going 2-for-4 with a stolen base, but then the 19-year-old top prospect went into a prolonged slump that left him hitting around .200 with a .600 OPS. That also included zero homers in 16 total games, but Harper finally went deep yesterday for the first time at Triple-A,…

  18. So far so good with Jim Thome playing first base

    Apr 23, 2012, 11:51 AM EDT

    Jim Thome

    Jim Thome has started at first base for the Phillies in three of the first 16 games, which doesn’t seem like much until you consider that he last played even an inning at the position in mid-2007. He committed a throwing error yesterday, but health-wise the 41-year-old has held up pretty well after missing tons…

  19. Josh Hamilton is no longer a vampire

    Apr 23, 2012, 11:19 AM EDT

    Josh Hamilton

    For most of his career Josh Hamilton‘s production has declined significantly during day games and for the past several seasons the former MVP tried various remedies to correct his problems hitting in the sun light. Coming into this season Hamilton’s lifetime OPS was 200 points lower during the day, including a .228 batting average and…

    New York Mets Photo Day

    Frank Francisco has allowed runs in each of his last four appearances and was yanked from Sunday’s save opportunity with two outs remaining in the ninth inning, but manager Terry Collins is sticking with the struggling right-hander in the closer role. “I just told him yesterday was one of those days, that he’s still the…

    Jarrod Parker AP

    Jarrod Parker failed to claim a spot in the A’s rotation when he struggled to throw strikes during spring training, but it didn’t take long for the former No. 9 overall pick to enter the team’s plans. Parker, who was acquired from the Diamondbacks in the Trevor Cahill trade this offseason, will be called up…

    Apr 20, 2012, 4:45 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Brewers v Arizona Diamondbacks

    Chris Narveson struggled in his last start Sunday, allowing five runs in four innings against the Braves, and today the Brewers placed the left-hander on the disabled list with a torn rotator cuff. There are different levels of severity and it’s possible he could pitch again this season, but if surgery is required he’s likely…

  23. Rays activate B.J. Upton from the disabled list

    Apr 20, 2012, 4:16 PM EDT

    B.J. Upton

    As expected the Rays have activated B.J. Upton from the disabled list and the center fielder will make his season debut tonight after sitting out the first 13 games with a back injury. Upton, who suffered the injury in a March 14 collision with Desmond Jennings, went just 3-for-21 (.143) during a seven game minor-league…
