  1. Rough day for three potential free agents

    Aug 25, 2009, 6:14 PM EDT

    Along with the big Johan Santana and Billy Wagner news today, there were three lesser items that figure to negatively impact a few of this winter’s potential free agents. – Wanting to make room for Chris Davis, the Rangers placed Andruw Jones on the disabled list with a strained left hamstring. Jones’ OPS stood at…

    Aug 25, 2009, 4:41 PM EDT

    This is part of a series of articles examining what every team’s roster would look like if given only the players it originally signed. I’m compiling the rosters, ranking them and presenting them in a countdown from Nos. 30 to 1. No. 30 – Cincinnati No. 29 – Kansas City No. 28 – San Diego…

  3. What we're watching: Streaking Rockies face Dodgers

    Aug 25, 2009, 4:21 PM EDT

    - Adam Wainwright can become the first National League to reach 15 wins, but to get there, he’ll have to outpitch Astros left-hander Wandy Rodriguez, who is 12-7 with a 2.89 ERA that ranks seventh in the NL.  Wainwright is fifth at 2.61.  Oddly enough, Rodriguez is 3-7 against the Cardinals in his career, even…

  5. Johan joins the Mets' MASH unit due to sore elbow

    Aug 24, 2009, 4:51 PM EDT

    It simply had to happen. The Mets had already lost Carlos Beltran, David Wright, Jose Reyes, Carlos Delgado and plenty of others. Now perhaps the most valuable player of all has gone down: Johan Santana has been scratched from his start Tuesday because of a sore elbow. According to manager Jerry Manuel after today’s loss,…

    Aug 24, 2009, 4:17 PM EDT

    - Jeff Niemann could further his Rookie of the Year case by outdueling Roy Halladay as the Rays and Jays play tonight.  Niemann has already done it once this season by limiting Toronto to one run over 7 1/3 innings in a 4-1 victory on June 29.  Halladay is coming off his shortest start of…

  12. What we're watching: Kawakami vs. Santana

    Aug 20, 2009, 4:07 PM EDT

    - Josh Johnson versus Wandy Rodriguez looks like the pitching matchup of the night. The two rank seventh and 11th in the NL in ERA, respectively. Johnson has gone 5-0 in his last six starts to move to 12-2 for the season, but his ERA has actually risen slightly during the span. Rodriguez was on…

  13. Ohioans rejoice: LaPorta, Stubbs get callups

    Aug 19, 2009, 6:12 PM EDT

    One move was overdue.  The other was more about the thrill of finally getting Willy Taveras out of the Cincinnati lineup.  On Wednesday, the Indians added 2007 first-round pick Matt LaPorta to their roster, while the Reds called up 2006 first-rounder Drew Stubbs.   Bypassed when Ryan Garko, Ben Francisco, Victor Martinez all were shipped…

  14. What we're watching: Wainwright vs. Kershaw

    Aug 19, 2009, 5:28 PM EDT

    - Roy Halladay will face a patient Boston lineup having pitched 50 innings over his past six starts. Included in that run is a complete-game victory over the Red Sox in which he gave up just one run. Halladay is just 13-12 with a 4.33 ERA lifetime against the Red Sox, but he has handled…

  17. Royals hit new low; demote Gordon to Triple-A

    Aug 18, 2009, 4:21 PM EDT

    In what looks like one of the most shameful service-time manipulations in baseball history, the Royals demoted Alex Gordon to Triple-A on Tuesday to make room for Kyle Farnsworth on the roster. Ready or not, Gordon, with just one season as pro under his belt, was rushed from Double-A to the majors to begin 2007.…

  19. Tigers get their bat, add Huff from Orioles

    Aug 17, 2009, 5:33 PM EDT

    It was quite a surprise that the Tigers didn’t add any offense at all before the deadline, but they had the strategy right: acquire pitching then, because quality arms are less likely to slide during the waiver process, and pick up some offensive help in August. On Monday, they got Aubrey Huff from the Orioles,…

    Aug 17, 2009, 4:11 PM EDT

    - Francisco Liriano will attempt to build on a strong effort against the Royals when he faces the AL wild card-leading Rangers in Texas.  It will be his second start in Arlington in a month, as he allowed three runs — two earned — in six innings in a no-decision on July 19.  The Rangers…
