  1. Andres Torres could return from appendectomy this weekend

    Sep 20, 2010, 11:16 AM EDT

    Andres Torres had an emergency appendectomy on September 17 and was given an initial recovery timetable of 2-3 weeks, potentially knocking him out of the Giants’ lineup for the remainder of the regular season. However, he’s apparently made good progress since then and manager Bruce Bochy said yesterday that Torres could be back in the…

  2. Joe Mauer likely to miss several games after tweaking knee

    Sep 20, 2010, 10:48 AM EDT

    Joe Mauer exited yesterday’s game in the sixth inning after tweaking his left knee while swinging and is expected to be sidelined for several days. Mauer missed most of his rookie season in 2004 with an injury to the same knee that required surgery, but has for the most part avoided any further problems there.…

  3. Andy Pettitte throws six good innings in first start since July

    Sep 20, 2010, 10:15 AM EDT

    Andy Pettitte returned from the disabled list yesterday after missing two months with a groin injury and held the Orioles to one run in six innings, allowing just three hits and one walk while striking out two. Pettitte’s health is crucial for the Yankees, whose rotation has has plenty of question marks behind CC Sabathia.…

  4. Hanley Ramirez out of the lineup with lingering elbow pain

    Sep 17, 2010, 5:19 PM EDT

    Following an off day yesterday Hanley Ramirez wanted to be in the Marlins’ lineup tonight despite a sore left elbow, but manager Edwin Rodriguez opted to rest him: His elbow was sore on Wednesday, so on Wednesday he said he’d try to play and I didn’t like what I saw. He came in today and…

  5. At age 70, is Joe Torre done managing after stepping away from the Dodgers?

    Sep 17, 2010, 4:17 PM EDT

    Joe Torre announced that he’ll step down as Dodgers manager after the season, with Don Mattingly replacing him, but will the 70-year-old future Hall of Famer look to manage elsewhere? Based on the early speculation, few people seem to think that’s likely. Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com writes that Torre is “unlikely to manage in 2011,”…

  6. Gordon Beckham may be shut down with hand injury

    Sep 17, 2010, 3:45 PM EDT

    Gordon Beckham was out of the White Sox’s lineup yesterday and Ozzie Guillen indicated that he may opt to shut him down for the season rather than let him try to continue playing through a hand injury: Obviously he wants to play, but I’ve seen this kid swing the bat for a year and a…

  7. Ozzie Guillen is still funny even if the White Sox are out of it

    Sep 17, 2010, 2:48 PM EDT

    His team rolled over for the Twins to end any semblance of a race in the AL Central, but that didn’t stop Ozzie Guillen from uttering his latest highly amusing soundbite. Guillen praised the Twins for playing so well despite losing stars like Justin Morneau and Joe Nathan, and then specifically mentioned rookie Danny Valencia…

  8. Jack Clark says the Cardinals "are quitters" and "have poopy in their pants"

    Sep 17, 2010, 1:45 PM EDT

    Jack Clark, who played three seasons for the Cardinals in the 1980s and was the MVP of the World Series squad in 1987, appeared on a St. Louis radio station yesterday and accused the current team of being “quitters” who “have poopy in their pants.” Seriously. Here are some quotes from the four-time All-Star first…

  9. Marisa Miller threw out the first pitch at AT&T Park

    Sep 17, 2010, 1:15 PM EDT

    Her command and velocity weren’t quite as good as the last time she threw out a first pitch at Wrigley Field, but Marisa Miller still looked great on the mound at AT&T Park. MLB.com has the video. For scouting purposes only, of course.

  10. D.J. Carrasco says Pirates "don't take it seriously enough that they're losing all the time"

    Sep 17, 2010, 12:48 PM EDT

    Sent from Pittsburgh to Arizona in a five-player deal at the trading deadline, D.J. Carrasco said yesterday that the Pirates didn’t take losing “seriously enough” while he was on the team: You would think there’s a lot of negative energy from losing all the time, but in my opinion, when I was there, the guys…

  11. Luis Castillo doesn't expect to be back with the Mets next year

    Sep 17, 2010, 11:47 AM EDT

    Luis Castillo has one year and $6 million left on his contract, but told Mike Puma of the New York Post that he doesn’t expect to be back with the Mets next season after losing his starting job at second base to 20-year-old rookie Ruben Tejada. I feel this offseason they can work out something.…

  12. White Sox planning to have Chris Sale in the rotation next year

    Sep 17, 2010, 11:19 AM EDT

    Now that the White Sox’s playoff hopes have vanished they can begin looking forward to next season and general manager Ken Williams said yesterday that Chris Sale will get an opportunity to claim a rotation spot out of spring training. Sale breezed through the minors after being drafted 13th overall in June, moving to the…

  13. Red hot Twins go into Chicago and sweep the White Sox out of the playoff picture

    Sep 17, 2010, 10:47 AM EDT

    Needing to sweep the Twins to have a legitimate shot at the playoffs the White Sox instead lost all three games in Chicago, ending the AL Central race. With a nine-game lead in the division and a “magic number” of eight games the Twins could conceivably fail to win any of their final 16 games…

    Sep 17, 2010, 10:15 AM EDT

    Erick Aybar was scratched from last night’s lineup with a “left leg strain,” but told Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register that the Angels’ training staff fears he may have a sports hernia. Aybar initially suffered the injury last week and has remained in the lineup since, but aggravated the injury while attempting to…

  15. Poll: Who should the Dodgers trade this offseason?

    Sep 16, 2010, 5:15 PM EDT

    After reading Jon Weisman’s article breaking down the Dodgers’ payroll situation it seems pretty clear that trading Matt Kemp and/or Jonathan Broxton will be a priority in Los Angeles this offseason. Setting aside what you think the Dodgers will do, my question is what they should do … Who should the cash-strapped Dodgers trade this…

  16. Dodgers have tons of holes to fill and little money to fill them

    Sep 16, 2010, 4:16 PM EDT

    Jon Weisman of Dodger Thoughts put together an interesting piece breaking down the Dodgers’ projected payroll for next season, concluding that they will have spent about $90 million “before they make a single offseason move.” Obviously the Dodgers have plenty of holes to fill and because of the ugly ownership situation it’s unclear if they’ll…

  17. Must-click link: David Brown interviews the great Vin Scully

    Sep 16, 2010, 3:15 PM EDT

    When one of my favorite interviewers, David Brown of Yahoo! Sports, chats with the greatest announcer of all time, Dodgers legend Vin Scully, that is pretty much the definition of a must-click link: Answer Man: Vin Scully talks candy, Dodgers and Bewitched Even better, if you want to actually hear their chat and listen to…

  18. Justin Upton out of the lineup with more shoulder problems

    Sep 16, 2010, 2:19 PM EDT

  19. Dusty Baker: "Some people didn't like the s*** I was doing from the time we started"

    Sep 16, 2010, 1:46 PM EDT

    Dusty Baker has the Reds in first place and headed to the playoffs for the first time since 1995, but the veteran manager seems fed up with fans and media members questioning his decisions. Francisco Cordero has struggled of late, blowing a pair of saves while allowing six runs in his last four outings, and…

  20. Torii Hunter lost $5,000 on Hideki Matsui's triple last night

    Sep 16, 2010, 1:16 PM EDT

    Hideki Matsui hit a triple last night for the first time since April of last season and Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register writes that it may have cost Torii Hunter a whole bunch of money. According to Plunkett the two players “had a friendly wager” on whether Matsui and his arthritic knees could…

    Sep 16, 2010, 12:45 PM EDT

Mejia had a similar injury while pitching in the minors earlier this season and obviously the…

  23. Homer Bailey left last night's start with "dizziness" and "a big headache"

    Sep 16, 2010, 11:18 AM EDT

    Homer Bailey showed significantly decreased velocity and struggled through three terrible innings last night before leaving his start against Arizona with dizziness. It wasn’t even mentioned until the seventh paragraph of John Fay’s game story in the Cincinnati Enquirer, but Bailey’s comments afterward sure make it seem like it’s a bigger deal: I felt a…

    Sep 16, 2010, 10:49 AM EDT

    Joe Girardi confirmed last night that Andy Pettitte will come off the disabled list and rejoin the Yankees’ rotation Sunday against the Orioles.

    Sep 16, 2010, 10:16 AM EDT

    Darren Oliver tossed a scoreless inning last night in his 59th appearance of the season, which is the number needed for the Rangers’ 2011 team option on the 39-year-old reliever to vest at $3.25 million.
