  1. Todd Helton to retire after 17 seasons with Rockies

    Sep 15, 2013, 12:43 AM EDT

    Todd Helton

    Most figured the end was coming for Todd Helton. The 40-year-old first baseman confirmed it to the Denver Post’s Troy Renck on Saturday, announcing his retirement at season’s end. Helton said he felt going into 2013 that this would be his last year, though he has had second thoughts from time to time. “During the…

  2. Roy Halladay scratched with flu-like symptoms

    Sep 10, 2013, 6:11 PM EDT

    Roy Halladay

    Roy Halladay, coming off the best of his three starts since returning from shoulder surgery, was scratched from his scheduled Wednesday outing with flu-like symptoms. Tyler Cloyd will pitch in his place against the Padres. Halladay allowed one run in six innings last time out against the Nationals, giving him a 4.24 ERA in three…

  3. This clinches it: Ned Yost has no idea what he’s doing

    Sep 9, 2013, 10:11 PM EDT

    Ned Yost

    Setting the scene: Indians up 4-3 on the Royals in the top of the ninth. Cleveland closer Chris Perez gives up a single to Salvador Perez and a walk to Mike Moustakas to begin the inning, setting things up very nicely. Very nicely indeed, for Ned Yost to trample all over what was left of…

  4. Miguel Cabrera ejected in first, Jim Leyland follows

    Sep 9, 2013, 8:29 PM EDT

    Detroit Tigers Miguel Cabrera looks at the scoreboard in the ninth inning of the Kansas City Royals' win in their MLB game in Kansas City

    For the second time in the last six weeks, Miguel Cabrera got tossed mid at-bat Monday, this time getting ejected by Brian Gorman in the first inning for arguing that he was hit by a pitch. MLB.com has the video, though it’s not yet embeddable. Cabrera took a Chris Sale slider off his back knee,…

  5. Buck Showalter, Joe Girardi have to be restrained after first inning

    Sep 9, 2013, 7:41 PM EDT

    Orioles manager Buck Showalter is held back by umpires while challenging Yankees manager Girardi following an unknown incident in the first inning of their MLB American League baseball game in Baltimore

    Things got feisty Monday night, Buck Showalter and Joe Girardi both wanted a piece of one another after the first inning of Yankees-Orioles game in Baltimore. It appears that the incident started when Girardi started yelling out of the dugout towards Orioles third-base coach Bobby Dickerson, either to perhaps accuse him of sign-stealing or to…

  6. Hunter Pence could be first outfielder since 2007 to start every game

    Sep 9, 2013, 7:05 PM EDT

    Hunter Pence

    No outfielder since Jeff Francoeur in 2007 has started every game in a season, yet Hunter Pence is on pace to do that this season for the Giants, CSN Bay Area’s Andrew Baggarly reports. If he does so, he’ll be the first Giant to start every game in a season since shortstop Alvin Dark in…

  7. Bryce Harper out two games after hip MRI

    Sep 9, 2013, 6:27 PM EDT

    Bryce Harper

    While the news was good Monday, Bryce Harper will have to sit out at least two more games following an MRI on his left hip, CSN Washington’s Mark Zuckerman reports. No structural damage was found in the hip, but the doc did think it best he take a couple of games off to try to…

  8. Red Sox wrecking crew does it again, beats Yanks 13-9

    Sep 7, 2013, 5:07 PM EDT

    Boston Red Sox Jonny Gomes runs after he hit three-run home run off New York Yankees David Huff  in MLB game in New York

    The Yankees have scored 25 runs the last three days, with no victories to show for it. That’s because the Red Sox bashed their way to another win Saturday, hitting four homers in a 13-9 game. They’ve scored 34 runs so far in the series and 54 in their last four games. The 34 runs…

  9. Tokyo gets Olympics; decision on baseball to come next

    Sep 7, 2013, 4:46 PM EDT

    Computer-generated file handout image shows Tokyo Stadium, one of the proposed Olympic stadiums for the 2020 Summer Olympic games in Tokyo

    Those wanting baseball and softball back in the Olympics got the news they were looking for Saturday: Tokyo was named the host city for the 2020 games, beating out Istanbul in a runoff after Madrid was eliminated earlier in the afternoon. The decision on whether to add baseball and softball, squash or wrestling to the…

  10. Derek Jeter exits with soreness near ankle

    Sep 7, 2013, 4:36 PM EDT

    Derek Jeter

    When Derek Jeter was pulled for a pinch-runner in the sixth inning Saturday, the hope was the Yankees were just preserving him in a 12-6 game. However, FOXSports.com’s Ken Rosenthal reported three innings later that Jeter was taken out due to soreness around the ankle he broke in the postseason last year. Jeter singled in…

  11. Anyone want to take a flier on James McDonald?

    Sep 7, 2013, 3:37 PM EDT

    James McDonald

    Right-hander James McDonald had a great case for being an All-Star in the summer of 2012. Not a whole lot has gone right since, though, and the Pirates designated him for assignment Saturday, according to the Tribune-Review’s Rob Biertempfel, removing him from the 40-man roster. McDonald had been on the shelf since early May due…

  12. Yusmeiro Petit so far from and so close to perfection

    Sep 7, 2013, 1:09 AM EDT

    Yusmeiro Petit, Eric Chavez

    Yusmeiro Petit was one pitch away from what might have been the most unlikely perfect game of all-time. Inches really. The 2-2 pitch to Eric Chavez easily could have been called a strike in a typical situation, even without the help overzealous umpires sometimes give in no-hitter situations. Then Hunter Pence came up just short…

  13. After his father comes up a little short, Johnny Monell Jr. reaches the majors

    Sep 6, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

    Johnny Monell

    We’re not going to tell the story here: head on over to CSNBayArea.com for Andrew Baggarly’s feature on Johnny Monell Jr., who was just called up by the Giants, and Johnny Monell Sr., who played professional baseball for 17 years without ever reaching the majors. If you need more incentive, there’s a Hector Villanueva segment.…

  14. What are the Yankees going to do about Derek Jeter?

    Sep 6, 2013, 2:25 PM EDT

    Derek Jeter, Mike Napoli

    It was easy to watch Thursday night’s Red Sox-Yankees tilt and come to the conclusion that Derek Jeter is done. Hobbling around on one leg at shortstop, he nearly got himself seriously injured again, courtesy of a cheap takeout slide from Mike Napoli. Any other major league shortstop would have been there and gone already…

  15. Ryan Braun calls Brewers season-ticket holders to apologize

    Sep 6, 2013, 2:22 AM EDT

    braun getty

    Sure, it’s PR through and through, but it’s also kind of neat. Ryan Braun, currently serving a 65-game suspension from MLB for his performance-enhancing drug usage, is calling Brewers season-ticket holders to apologize for his transgressions. CBS 58 in Milwaukee reached out to one of the ticket holders, Pat Guenther, and got some quotes from…

  16. Mark Trumbo declines to rip the statheads

    Sep 6, 2013, 1:44 AM EDT

    Mark Trumbo

    Mark Trumbo went to the All-Star Game last year and is about to notch a second straight 30-homer, 90-RBI season, so he could easily fall back on the old “I get paid to produce runs” line. It’s nice to see that he doesn’t. “The casual fan would probably be pretty pumped up when they see…

  17. Red Sox best Mariano Rivera, beat Yankees in 10 innings

    Sep 6, 2013, 12:02 AM EDT

    Boston Red Sox Jacoby Ellsbury scores at home plate as New York Yankees Austin Romine cannot hold the throw in their MLB game in New York

    Call it “Deja Drew.” After the Red Sox let a five-run lead slip away, things were going all according to plan for the Yankees on Thursday. David Robertson pitched a perfect eighth up 8-7, and Mariano Rivera retired the first two batters he faced in the ninth. That’s when things unraveled. Mike Napoli, who was…

  18. Reds make it three out of four, defeat Cardinals 6-2

    Sep 5, 2013, 10:30 PM EDT

    Todd Frazier

    If they hadn’t gotten so bunt happy on Wednesday, the Reds might have made it a clean sweep. As is, they should be pretty pleased to have taken three out of four from the visiting Cardinals with their 6-2 win on Thursday. Todd Frazier hit two of the Reds’ four homers in support of Tony…

  19. Adam Jones reaches 30 homers, 100 RBI… and 20 walks!

    Sep 5, 2013, 8:25 PM EDT

    Adam Jones

    Orioles All-Star center fielder Adam Jones hit a solo homer in the first inning Thursday against the White Sox, giving him 30 homers and 100 RBI on the season. Three innings later, he reached another little milestone: he walked for the 20th time in 567 at-bats. Barring a stunning turn of events, Jones is about…

  20. Joe Mauer not progressing from concussion as hoped

    Sep 5, 2013, 7:27 PM EDT

    Joe Mauer

    Joe Mauer admitted Thursday that he’s still experiencing concussion symptoms during workouts, leaving him without a timetable for a return to the Twins lineup. Mauer ramped up his workouts in recent days, taking batting practice and lifting weights, but that’s when the symptoms returned, he told the Star-Tribune’s LaVelle E. Neal III. Given that the…

  21. Billy Butler goes 5-for-5, gets removed for pinch-runner

    Sep 5, 2013, 6:46 PM EDT

    Billy Butler

    When Billy Butler led off the bottom of the ninth with a single Thursday in a tie game against the Mariners, it gave him his third career five-hit game. It was also the end of his day; the Royals pulled him in favor of Pedro Ciriaco. The switch didn’t work out — Ciriaco was left…

  22. Felix Hernandez’s next start delayed by back issues

    Sep 5, 2013, 6:02 PM EDT

    Felix Hernandez

    Felix Hernandez won’t pitch again until next Wednesday after leaving Monday’s game with what was called a lower back cramp, MLB.com reports. “He feels good and wants to start on Sunday, but we’re going to be cautious with him,” manager Eric Wedge said. “We want him to get some flat ground work, get another bullpen…

  23. Red Sox hit eight homers, destroy Tigers 20-4

    Sep 4, 2013, 10:45 PM EDT

    David Ortiz

    The Red Sox overshadowed David Ortiz‘s 2,000th career hit Wednesday, tying their franchise record with eight homers in a 20-4 drubbing of the Tigers. Ortiz was a big part of the barrage, hitting two of the homers. His 2,000th hit, sandwiched in between the homers, was a double. Ortiz became the 275th player, at least…

  24. Pablo Sandoval hits three homers against Padres

    Sep 4, 2013, 10:18 PM EDT

    Pablo Sandoval

    Pablo Sandoval won’t be having any three-homer games in the World Series this October, but he did accomplish the feat for the first time in the regular season Wednesday as the Giants crushed the Padres 13-5. Sandoval had a modest 10 homers this season before taking three relievers deep tonight. He had a two-run shot…

  25. Mariano Rivera notches ninth 40-save season

    Sep 3, 2013, 10:46 PM EDT

    Mariano Rivera

    It just got a little more difficult to manufacture a save record not held by Mariano Rivera. The 43-year-old picked up his 40th save Tuesday against the White Sox, reaching that plateau for the ninth time in his illustrious career. That ties Trevor Hoffman for the most of all-time. No one else has more than…
