    Aug 21, 2009, 3:22 PM EST

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

    Aug 20, 2009, 4:07 PM EST

    - 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…

  6. Ohioans rejoice: LaPorta, Stubbs get callups

    Aug 19, 2009, 6:12 PM EST

    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…

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

    Aug 19, 2009, 5:28 PM EST

    - 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…

  9. What we're watching: Beckett aims for 15th victory

    Aug 18, 2009, 4:51 PM EST

    - Josh Beckett can become the first major leaguer to 15 wins this year by beating Toronto and Ricky Romero tonight. He’s gone at least seven innings in six straight starts, allowing nine runs in the process. His ERA, which stood at 7.22 at the end of April, is now 3.10, the sixth-best mark in…

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

    Aug 18, 2009, 4:21 PM EST

    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.…

  12. Tigers get their bat, add Huff from Orioles

    Aug 17, 2009, 5:33 PM EST

    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 EST

    - 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…

    Aug 14, 2009, 6:05 PM EST

    - The pitching matchup of the night pits Clayton Kershaw against Dan Haren as the Dodgers take on the Diamondbacks in Arizona.

    Aug 14, 2009, 5:44 PM EST

    9 1/2 years after spending $96 million to buy the Royals, David Glass has decided to check out first-hand just what is wrong with his team. Reports The Associated Press: Glass said Friday that he plans to clear his schedule to attend more games and see why the Kansas City Royals are having one of…

  19. Nuts! Mariners' Beltre shelved due to testicle injury

    Aug 13, 2009, 7:53 PM EST

    The Mariners revealed Thursday that Adrian Beltre could be lost for the rest of the season with a damaged testicle, the result of a bad-hop grounder during Wednesday’s game. Beltre, who does not wear a cup, suffered tearing of the testicle and apparently some internal bleeding. Surgery would cost him a month and perhaps end…

  21. What we're watching: Pedro's Philly debut

    Aug 12, 2009, 5:10 PM EST

    - Hopefully, Tuesday’s incident took care of the bad blood between the Tigers and Red Sox, but with noted hothead Josh Beckett on the mound tonight, another flareup is a possibility. Kevin Youkilis, who charged the mound after being hit in a second straight game last night, chose not to appeal his five-game suspension, so…

  23. Golden Baseball League stats

    Aug 11, 2009, 5:54 PM EST

    Aaron’s mention of Scott Spiezio signing to play in the Golden Baseball League got me curious, so here’s a look at the stats of the notable and semi-notable players participating in the league this year. Walter Young – .329/.394/.482, 3 HR, 8 RBI, 15/5 K/BB, 0 SB in 85 AB Hulking first baseman got a…

    Aug 11, 2009, 4:54 PM EST

    - Junichi Tazawa will make his first major league start in front of a home crowd at Fenway as the Red Sox play the Tigers tonight.
