  1. Philip Humber placed on DL after posting 7.47 ERA since perfect game

    Jun 22, 2012, 4:16 PM EST

    Philip Humber

    Phillip Humber has been a mess since throwing his perfect game on April 21, making 10 starts with a 7.47 ERA, and the White Sox have placed him on the disabled list with a strained elbow. Brian Bruney was called up from Triple-A to take Humber’s place on the roster after posting a 1.85 ERA…

  2. Joel Peralta drops appeal, starts serving suspension tonight

    Jun 22, 2012, 3:55 PM EST

    Chris Cuccione

    Joel Peralta appealed his eight-game suspension long enough to be available out of the Rays’ bullpen last night, but after taking the loss against the Nationals he’s decided to drop the appeal and begin serving his suspension tonight. Perhaps the Rays just didn’t want to give the Nationals the satisfaction of Peralta beginning his suspension…

  3. White Sox designate Kosuke Fukudome for assignment

    Jun 22, 2012, 3:45 PM EST

    White Sox pinch hitter Fukudome hits into an out in the ninth inning against the Boston Red Sox during their MLB baseball game in Chicago

    Kosuke Fukudome seemed like a solid low-risk pickup for the White Sox considering it took only a $1 million commitment compared to the $48 million he earned while being a disappointment on the other side of Chicago, but the outfielder played sparingly and has been designated for assignment. The move comes instead of activating Fukudome…

    Curt Schilling

    Doing a radio interview on WEEI’s Dennis & Callanhan show Friday, Curt Schilling detailed how things went bad with his company 38 Studios. Having personally invested more than $50 million in the company, Schilling, who recently took a leave of absence from ESPN, told his family last month that “The money I saved and earned playing…

  5. Orioles might be close to calling up 49-year-old Jamie Moyer

    Jun 22, 2012, 3:10 PM EST

    Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun noticed that Triple-A Norfolk’s upcoming probable starters list doesn’t include Jamie Moyer, who’s made three starts there since being released by the Rockies and signing a minor-league deal with the Orioles. It might mean nothing, but Connolly speculates that the Orioles could be on the verge of calling Moyer…

  6. Woman hit by ball sues Little Leaguer for $500,000

    Little League logo

    Two years and more than $150,000 in medical costs later, a New Jersey woman is suing a Little Leaguer who threw a ball and struck her in the face. Elizabeth Lloyd was sitting at a picnic table near a fenced-in bullpen when she was hit with the ball. Catcher Matthew Migliaccio, 11 years old at the…

  7. Australians are the best and Bob is, in fact, your uncle

    Jun 22, 2012, 2:34 PM EST

    Twins Indians Baseball

    Twins rookie Liam Hendriks had another rough start yesterday, allowing six runs in five innings against the Pirates to fall to 0-6 with a 6.84 ERA in 10 career starts. Hendriks is the Twins’ reigning minor league pitcher of the year, which makes his struggles all the more discouraging, but the right-hander from Australia at…

  8. Darryl Kile died 10 years ago today

    Jun 22, 2012, 2:10 PM EST

    Darryl Kile

    Cardinals ace Darryl Kile passed away 10 years ago today on June 22, 2002. Fresh off seasons of 20 and 16 wins, Kile was still pretty much in his baseball prime at 33 when he died of a heart attack brought on by coronary disease. His body was found in his hotel room after he…

  9. Hideki Matsui is hitting .158 for the Rays

    Jun 22, 2012, 1:40 PM EST

    Hideki Matsui Reuters

    Tampa Bay called up Hideki Matsui last month despite his hitting just .170 in 13 games at Triple-A, which seemed odd at the time and was clearly an example of the Rays simply hoping that the 38-year-old veteran could summon whatever gas he had left in the tank once he was back in the big…

  10. Salvador Perez returns from spring training knee surgery

    Jun 22, 2012, 1:13 PM EST

    Salvador Perez

    At least it’s not all bad news on the Royals injury front today. They lost starter Felipe Paulino to what will likely be season-ending Tommy John surgery, but the Royals also activated catcher Salvador Perez from the disabled list three months after he underwent knee surgery in spring training. Perez was initially given a 12-14…

  11. Livan Hernandez set to sign with Brewers, pitch in relief

    Jun 22, 2012, 12:59 PM EST

    Livan Hernandez

    Apparently, Ken Rosenthal, Buster Olney and all of the rest just got scooped by Bill Hall.

  12. Felipe Paulino likely to undergo Tommy John surgery

    Jun 22, 2012, 12:38 PM EST

    Felipe Paulino

    Felipe Paulino is currently on the disabled list with a groin injury, but suddenly that’s the least of the hard-throwing Royals right-hander’s problems. Bob Dutton of the Kansas City Star reports that Paulino has been diagnosed with a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his elbow and is “likely” to undergo season-ending Tommy John surgery. While…

  13. Grady Sizemore still hasn’t started running yet

    Jun 22, 2012, 12:12 PM EST

    Grady Sizemore

    Grady Sizemore initially hoped to be back in the Indians’ lineup by now following knee and back surgeries, but instead the center fielder’s rehab was sidetracked several times and now he’s yet to resume running. Three weeks ago Sizemore vented some of his understandable frustration with yet another slower-than-expected recovery from a major injury, saying:…

  14. Mariners first-round pick Mike Zunino named Baseball America college player of the year

    Jun 22, 2012, 11:39 AM EST

    Mike Zunino

    Mike Zunino was selected by the Mariners with the third overall pick in the draft two weeks ago and today Baseball America named the University of Florida catcher their college player of the year. Zunino hit .322 with a 1.069 OPS for the Gators, ranking fourth in the country with 19 homers, 10th with 67…

  15. Cardinals activate Jon Jay, Matt Carpenter from disabled list

    Jun 22, 2012, 11:11 AM EST

    Slowly but surely the Cardinals are starting to get healthy. Or at least healthier. St. Louis has activated Jon Jay and Matt Carpenter from the disabled list, sending down Matt Adams and Adron Chambers to make room on the roster. Jay has been out since injuring his shoulder on May 14, but went 3-for-8 with…

  16. Nationals get last laugh as Joel Peralta takes loss while appealing suspension

    Jun 22, 2012, 10:37 AM EST

    Joel Peralta

    Yesterday afternoon MLB handed down an eight-game suspension to Joel Peralta for having pine tar on his glove, but the Rays reliever appealed and was available to pitch last night against the Nationals and the manager who ratted him out to umpires, Davey Johnson. And sure enough manager Joe Maddon brought Peralta into the sixth…

  17. Mets closer Frank Francisco on the Yankees: “I can’t wait to face those chickens”

    Jun 22, 2012, 10:10 AM EST

    New York Mets Photo Day

    I’m not sure what could possibly compel a struggling second-rate closer with a 5.14 ERA to talk trash publicly against the Yankees, but Mets right-hander Frank Francisco took the media bait and did just that. With this weekend’s Subway Series starting at Citi Field tonight, Francisco was asked for his thoughts about facing the Yankees…

  18. Casey Affleck to direct a movie about Josh Hamilton’s life

    Jun 22, 2012, 9:46 AM EST

    josh hamilton getty

    Mike Fleming of Deadline reports that a movie about Josh Hamilton‘s life story is being shopped around Hollywood, with Casey Affleck already attached as writer and director. Hamilton’s story certainly contains more than enough drama to be a compelling movie, but a biopic of a still-living 31-year-old seems kind of premature, especially considering his recent…

  20. Indians give up on Beau Mills, send him to Cincinnati

    Jun 22, 2012, 1:50 AM EST

    Beau Mills - Bowman

    First baseman Beau Mills, the 13th overall selection in the 2007 draft, was traded from the Indians to the Reds for cash considerations Thursday night, ending his disappointing stint in the Cleveland system. Mills, the son of then Red Sox coach and now Astros manager Brad Mills, was viewed as a potential 25- or 30-homer…
