    Back in 2009 a young pitcher from the Dominican Republic named Juan Collado signed with the Diamondbacks for $17,000 and even played in Arizona’s minor-league system, but it turned out his name was actually Juan Carlos Paniagua. MLB suspended him for one year and the deal with the Diamondbacks was voided, but then once he…

    Sep 2, 2011, 10:47 AM EDT

    J.D. Drew

    J.D. Drew sprained his finger while on a minor-league rehab assignment for his shoulder injury, so his return from the disabled list has been pushed back for at least a week.

    Yesterday’s speculation that Hanley Ramirez might need shoulder surgery remains just that, but Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports that the Marlins shortstop will be examined by a doctor after an MRI exam revealed “left shoulder instability.” Ramirez initially sprained his shoulder on August 2 and his recent rehab attempts have been derailed by the shoulder…

    Sep 1, 2011, 4:16 PM EDT

    Jake Peavy

    Jake Peavy bounced back from a six-run first inning yesterday to throw four scoreless frames, but his ERA ballooned to 5.17 and afterward he talked about feeling “run down” about 13 months removed from shoulder surgery. Peavy, who has a 4.61 ERA in 232 innings since the White Sox acquired him from the Padres in…

Blake had been playing regularly since returning from his third disabled list stint of the season on July 30, hitting .274 with four doubles in 19 games, but called the pinched nerve in his neck…

  9. Picture of the Day: Ryan Braun’s wipeout crime scene

    Sep 1, 2011, 2:14 PM EDT

    As you’d expect, Ryan Braun‘s teammates are having a lot of fun goofing on his wipeout rounding third base on a would-be inside-the-park homer yesterday. Jordan Schelling of MLB.com snapped a picture of their attempt to reenact the scene of the crime:

  10. Twins top prospect Kyle Gibson needs Tommy John surgery

    Sep 1, 2011, 1:47 PM EDT

    2011 XM All-Star Futures Game

    Kyle Gibson was supposed to be in Minnesota’s rotation by now, but instead the Twins’ top prospect and 2009 first-round pick won’t see the majors before 2013. Last month Gibson was shut down at Triple-A following a brutal six-week stretch and the Twins diagnosed with him a partially torn elbow ligament. They advised him to…

  11. Phillies on pace for most shutouts since Braves in 1992

    Sep 1, 2011, 1:20 PM EDT

    New York Mets v Philadelphia Phillies

    Last night Cliff Lee threw 8.2 scoreless innings and Ryan Madson came in to get the final out as the Phillies shut out the Reds.

    Sep 1, 2011, 12:48 PM EDT

    Seattle Mariners v Texas Rangers

    Texas acquired Koji Uehara from Baltimore last month as more than just a two-month rental and last night his option for 2012 vested with his 55th appearance of the season.

    Sep 1, 2011, 12:16 PM EDT

    kalish pose

    Ryan Kalish started 44 of the Red Sox’s final 58 games last season and fared decently for a 22-year-old rookie, but instead of trying to stick in the big leagues this year his season has been ruined by injuries. Kalish tore the labrum in his right shoulder while making a diving catch at Triple-A in…

  14. Mark Teixeira calls pace of Yankees-Red Sox games “brutal”

    Sep 1, 2011, 11:51 AM EDT

    Mark Teixeira

    At least one player agrees with the fans and media members annoyed by the length and pace of Yankees-Red Sox games. After playing in another marathon matchup last night–which was made even longer by Josh Beckett‘s involvement–Mark Teixeira told Tyler Kepner of the New York Times that “it’s brutal” and “I can’t stand playing a…

  15. Indians place Shin-Soo Choo on DL with oblique injury

    Sep 1, 2011, 11:19 AM EDT

    Cleveland Indians v San Francisco Giants

    For the most part it’s no longer necessary for teams to place injured players on the disabled list now that rosters have expanded for 25 to 40, as they’re free to call up extra players anyway. However, the Indians have put Shin-Soo Choo on the shelf with an oblique strain because a DL move allows…

  16. Dodgers decide not to trade 37-year-old impending free agent Jamey Carroll

    Sep 1, 2011, 10:47 AM EDT

    Carroll_Jamey

    Jamey Carroll is a 37-year-old impending free agent who won’t qualify for draft pick compensation and the Dodgers are 65-70, so it seemed like a no-brainer for them to trade him prior to last night’s deadline. And they tried, according to Steve Dilbeck of the Los Angeles Times, but ultimately failed to come to an…

  17. Man down! Ryan Braun wipes out going for inside-the-parker

    Sep 1, 2011, 10:15 AM EDT

    Ryan Braun

    Ryan Braun crushed a ball into left-center field last night and Cardinals center fielder Allen Craig made an unsuccessful diving attempt on it, at which point Braun was off to the races.

  19. While on the disabled list A.J. Pierzynski may have lost his job to Tyler Flowers

    Aug 31, 2011, 4:50 PM EDT

    Chicago White Sox v Minnesota Twins

    A.J. Pierzynski had started 28 of 32 games behind the plate for the White Sox when he fractured his wrist on August 12, but it sounds like he’ll be a part-time player once he returns from the disabled list. Tyler Flowers has impressed while filling in for Pierzynski and manager Ozzie Guillen told Doug Padilla…

    Jose Canseco manages the independent league Yuma Scorpions and one of his players is former big leaguer and speedy center fielder Joey Gathright.

    Gonzalez_Mike

    Not satisfied with adding Mike Adams and Koji Uehara to the bullpen at the July 31 trade deadline the Rangers have pulled off another deal for a veteran reliever, acquiring Michael Gonzalez from the Orioles for a player to be named later. Gonzalez had a brutal April, but the 33-year-old left-hander recovered to throw 41…

  22. Where does Miguel Tejada rank in the history of shortstops?

    Aug 31, 2011, 2:48 PM EDT

    miguel tejada a's

    Miguel Tejada may still latch on with another team after being designated for assignment by the Giants today, but the former MVP looks finished as a quality regular and is definitely finished as a decent shortstop option. Rather than focus on the terrible hitter and range-less fielder that Tejada has become in the twilight of…

  23. Mark Buehrle enjoys the “drama” surrounding Ozzie Guillen

    Aug 31, 2011, 2:20 PM EDT

    Tyler Flowers, Ozzie Guillen, Mark Buehrle

    Ozzie Guillen’s relationship with general manager Ken Williams is reportedly worse than ever and he’s already talking about leaving Chicago if a contract extension isn’t offered, but at least one White Sox player is just fine with Guillen’s consistent headline-making ways. During an interview with ESPN-1100 in Chicago today Mark Buehrle explained that Guillen “is…

  25. Knee injury keeps Victor Martinez from catching

    Aug 31, 2011, 12:48 PM EDT

    Texas Rangers v Detroit Tigers

    When the Tigers signed Victor Martinez to a four-year, $50 million contract this offseason the assumption was that he’d split time between designated hitter and catcher, at least in the first couple seasons of the deal. Alex Avila‘s emergence means the Tigers haven’t really needed Martinez at catcher much and now a sprained left knee…
