  1. UPDATE: Jayson Werth suffers broken left wrist

    May 6, 2012, 11:30 PM EST

    Jayson Werth

    11:30 p.m. EDT update: It was announced after the game Sunday that Werth had suffered a broken left wrist. He’ll see a specialist on Monday as the Nats go about determining whether he has any ligament damage. If it’s a simple break, then 6-8 weeks is probably the best-case scenario. If there’s more damage, then…

    Bryce Harper put the Nationals on the board with his legs Sunday night against the Phillies. After getting hit by a Cole Hamels pitch in the first, he advanced to third on a Jayson Werth single and then stole home as Hamels made a pickoff throw to first. Harper pretty easily made it into home…

  3. Clay Buchholz has the Red Sox in a bind

    May 6, 2012, 8:50 PM EST

    Clay Buchholz, Bobby Valentine

    Clay Buchholz is throwing in the low-90s consistently. His curveball looked plenty good today. He’s been inconsistent with his changeup, but that hardly explains the 9.09 ERA. Buchholz gave up five more runs in 3 2/3 innings Sunday in a no-decision in what ended up being a 17-inning loss to the Orioles. He’s allowed at…

    May 6, 2012, 7:46 PM EST

    Chris Davis

    It wasn’t pretty, but in many ways, Chris Davis had the most remarkable day on a baseball field that I can ever remember. Starting at DH for the Orioles, Davis fanned in his first five at-bats, hit into a double play in his sixth and grounded out in his seventh before moving to the mound…

  6. Matt Moore isn’t looking like Rookie of the Year material

    May 6, 2012, 6:18 PM EST

    Matt Moore

    Matt Moore was expected to excel right away for the Rays. He would have been the overwhelming favorite for Rookie of the Year honors if not for Yu Darvish‘s presence on the Rangers, and many thought he had a good shot at the award anyway. Some thought he might quickly overtake CC Sabathia, David Price and Jon…

    Albert Pujols, Jeff Mathis

    In his third at-bat Sunday and 111th at-bat of the season, Albert Pujols finally broke his career-long homer drought, connecting on a two-run shot off Blue Jays rookie Drew Hutchinson that gave the Angels a 4-2 lead in the fifth. Pujols’ average had been down to .191 before the blast. It’s the first time this…

    May 6, 2012, 4:07 PM EST

    Yu Darvish

    The Rangers hadn’t lost with Yu Darvish on the mound this season, but the Indians dropped them 4-2 on Sunday, with Darvish taking his first defeat. Darvish struggled with his command early, but he pitched out of jams after giving up a single and a walk to start the first and a walk to start…

    Despite piles of evidence to the contrary, Dodgers center fielder Matt Kemp is apparently human. According to MLB.com’s Ken Gurnick, the 27-year-old has been scratched from Sunday’s series finale against the Cubs because of a tight left hamstring. There are rainy conditions at and around Chicago’s Wrigley Field, and the Dodgers don’t want to risk…

  14. Grumpy old men: Chipper Jones takes on Jamie Moyer

    May 6, 2012, 1:22 PM EST

    Chipper Jones

    Chipper Jones was none too happy with Jamie Moyer during Saturday’s game, not after the 49-year-old left-hander accused of him of relaying signs from second base. The incident took place in the fifth inning, when Moyer stepped off the rubber and said a few words to Chipper at second base. MLB.com has the quotes: “That…

    Veteran right-hander Aaron Cook was able to stay in the game Saturday after suffering a nasty cut on his left knee while trying to tag out the Orioles’ Chris Davis at home plate during his Red Sox debut.

    The Twins have just nine total hits in their last four games, which is among the worst stretches of offensive futility in Major League Baseball history. So they’re going to make some changes. According to Dustin Morse, the Twins’ director of baseball communications, manager Ron Gardenhire announced Sunday morning that Brian Dozier will be the…

    But it wasn’t $250 million man Albert Pujols. With Albert getting his first day off of the season on Saturday night, last year’s starting first baseman Mark Trumbo drew the nod and launched his fourth home run of 2012 as the Angels snapped a two-game losing streak by besting the Blue Jays 6-2.
