    Masset was DFA’d by the Marlins three days ago.

  2. Hyun-Jin Ryu is likely to have season-ending shoulder surgery

    For a season that, for him, never began.

  3. Masahiro Tanaka to go on a rehab assignment

    Masahiro Tanaka

    The Yankees’ Opening Day starter could be back with the big club by the end of the month.

  4. Video: The Armando Benetiz-Tino Martinez brawl happened 17 years ago today

    Notable in that, at the time suspensions were announced, someone in authority actually said, in effect, “Hey, don’t throw at guys! You could hurt someone!”

  5. Yoan Moncada made his minor league debut

    May 19, 2015, 9:00 AM EDT

    Yoan Moncada

    He went 0-for-3 with a walk, two runs scored, a nice defensive play and, unfortunately, an error which allowed a run to score.

  6. And That Happened: Monday’s scores and highlights

    Not a full schedule yesterday but all but one game was decided by one run. And Josh Donaldson probably needs to have his mouth washed out with Lifebuoy.

  7. Jose Bautista just hit a monster home run

    May 18, 2015, 4:31 PM EDT

    Jose Bautista

    Third deck shot and it got out in a hurry.

  8. Jeff Loria’s got nothin’ on Ted Turner. The craziest owner in living memory.

    May 18, 2015, 3:59 PM EDT

    Ted Turner manager

    Except naming himself manager wasn’t the craziest thing he ever did.

  9. Obama neglects to follow the Cubs on Twitter. Why?

    May 18, 2015, 1:30 PM EDT

    Obama First Pitch

    Maybe it’s because he’s a White Sox fan so screw the Cubs. Maybe it’s politics.

  10. Dan Jennings’ hire as the Marlins manager came as “an epiphany”

    May 18, 2015, 11:35 AM EDT

    That, allegedly, Jeff Loria had nothing to do with.

  11. Local ratings show baseball’s power locally

    Baseball isn’t dying, you guys.

  12. Montreal’s Mayor to meet with Rob Manfred

    May 18, 2015, 9:20 AM EDT

    Olympic Stadium

    Lots of people would like to see baseball return to Montreal. Meetings like this may not make it happen alone, but they’re a start.

  13. Bryce Harper’s ridiculously good season continues

    May 18, 2015, 8:58 AM EDT

    Bryce Harper

    He now has as many homers and more RBI than he had in all of 2014.

  14. GM Dan Jennings to be named the Marlins new manager. And it’s a terrible idea.

    May 18, 2015, 7:38 AM EDT

    Jeffrey Loria, Dan Jennings

    Naming your GM — who hasn’t coached baseball since running a high school team in the mid-1980s — is unconventional. Not considering minority candidates is violative of the Selig Rule. But then again, these are the Marlins, and they do what they want.

  15. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    May 18, 2015, 6:01 AM EDT

    Shelby Miller

    I know, Shelby. I can’t believe the “Mad Men” finale either.

  16. Lack of interest in youth baseball among blacks has a lot to do with money

    When you actually ask young players why they steered away from baseball, they mention scholarships before bat flips.

  17. “Baseball’s inherent nature is that it is essentially boundless”

    May 15, 2015, 9:31 AM EDT

    Jack Dempsey -- Associated Press

    Some more on the richness of meaningless baseball.

  18. Carlos Gonzalez’ ninth inning homer stuns the Dodgers

    May 15, 2015, 8:25 AM EDT

    Carlos Gonzalez

    The Dodgers are a good team but their bullpen let one go last night.
