Devine was the Braves’ first-round pick in 2005, was traded to the A’s for Mark Kotsay in 2008, and has a 2.75 ERA with 9.1 strikeouts per nine innings for…

    Apr 9, 2012, 1:49 PM EDT

    Minute Maid Park

    Fan morale being extremely low in Houston coming off a 56-106 season is certainly understandable, but usually even terrible teams can sell a decent number of tickets for the first couple weeks of the season. Unfortunately for the Astros that isn’t the case, as yesterday’s attendance was the lowest in the 12-year history of Minute…

    Giancarlo Stanton was a last-minute scratch from the Marlins’ lineup this afternoon with what the team is calling left knee pain. It turns out getting dressed up to look like Bruno Mars can be hazardous to your health, apparently. For now the Marlins are saying that Stanton is day-to-day, but it’s worth noting that he…

    Joe Frisaro of MLB.com snapped a picture of what Marlins teammates Giancarlo Stanton, Josh Johnson, Ricky Nolasco, and Randy Choate wore on Easter Sunday after spending the weekend playing in Cincinnati.

    Twins Indians Baseball

    Liam Hendriks was supposed to sub for the injured Scott Baker as the No. 3 starter in the Twins’ rotation, but he was scratched from his scheduled Sunday start and hospitalized with food poisoning. Anthony Swarzak did a nice job filling in for the guy who was supposed to be filling in, but Hendriks’ availability…

    lannan ap

    John Lannan wants the Nationals to trade him and they’d be glad to if someone would take his $5 million salary off their hands, but instead he’s stuck in the minors and didn’t help his cause much yesterday in his first Triple-A start. Lannan lasted just two innings against the Yankees’ affiliate, giving up five…

  15. Rays expect to be without Kyle Farnsworth for 4-6 weeks

    farnsworth ap

    So much for Kyle Farnsworth‘s elbow injury being a minor one. Yesterday the Rays placed Farnsworth on the disabled list and today manager Joe Maddon told Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times that he expects to be without the closer for 4-6 weeks. No word yet on the fill-in closer, but most of the…

  16. Astros shortstop Jed Lowrie begins season on disabled list

    Apr 6, 2012, 1:18 PM EDT

    Brad Mills, Jed Lowrie

    “Oft-injured” was used to describe Jed Lowrie for most of his Red Sox career and now his Astros career will be delayed by, you guessed it, an injury. Lowrie hurt his thumb diving back into second base on March 28, getting upset at Marlins infielder Omar Infante for blocking the bag, and Houston has placed…

    Apr 6, 2012, 12:46 PM EDT

    Philadelphia Phillies v Atlanta Braves

    Jose Contreras took a big step in his recovery from elbow surgery yesterday when he appeared in a minor-league game, but his Single-A outing lasted only 11 pitches and was full of control problems.

    Apr 6, 2012, 11:51 AM EDT

    kinsler bats getty

    Amid reports that he was close to a long-term contract extension Ian Kinsler called negotiations with the Rangers a “confusing process” and now it sounds like talks have stalled to the point that a deal may not get done. In fact, Calvin Watkins of ESPN Dallas reports that “it appears doubtful the Rangers will reach…

  19. Robin Ventura still hasn’t named the White Sox’s closer

    Apr 6, 2012, 11:19 AM EDT

    A.J. Pierzynski, Matt Thornton

    Now that the Royals have officially picked Jonathan Broxton as Joakim Soria‘s replacement nearly every team has named their closer, but one holdout is the guy with the least managing experience in the bunch (which is to say no managing experience). Robin Ventura played coy with the media yesterday, refusing to disclose his closer while…

    Apr 6, 2012, 10:47 AM EDT

    Apr 6, 2012, 10:15 AM EDT

    Bryce Harper

    Bryce Harper made his Triple-A debut yesterday–more than six months shy of his 20th birthday–and went 2-for-4 with a double and a stolen base. Dave Sheinin of the Washington Post notes that Harper’s arrival at Triple-A generated nowhere near the hype of Stephen Strasburg reaching the minors’ highest level in 2010, as Syracuse’s ballpark “was…

    UPDATE: As expected, the Rays have placed Farnsworth on the disabled list for what they hope will be a brief stint. ========== Kyle Farnsworth got some relatively good news on his injured elbow, as an MRI exam showed only a strain for the Rays closer.
