    Chicago’s pitching staff is getting a big boost today, as the Cubs activated both Ryan Dempster and Kerry Wood from the disabled list while sending Randy Wells and Scott Maine back to Triple-A. Dempster has been out since April 18 with a quadriceps injury, while Wood has been sidelined by a shoulder injury since April…

  2. Pablo Sandoval leaves game with injured hand

    May 3, 2012, 10:00 AM EDT

    Pablo Sandoval

    UPDATE: The worst fears are realized: broken hamate bone. He’s likely to miss several weeks. 10:00 AM: This could be bad news for the Giants: a team that already struggles to score runs could be without their biggest offensive threat for a while. Pablo Sandoval left in the sixth inning of Wednesday’s game after injuring…

  3. Quote of the Day: Jered Weaver on the disruption of his no-hitter routine

    May 3, 2012, 9:40 AM EDT

    weaver-120502.standard[1]

    When someone is throwing a no-hitter, every little thing matters. Routine. Habit. Superstition. A guy throwing a no-no is not going to move from the spot on the bench he’s been sitting in all game long because that might mess with his flow. But Jered Weaver bolted from his spot on the bench between the…

  4. Heath Bell continues to struggle

    Last night was a good night to stink because so much other stuff was happening. This is especially true if your team won.  And it’s especially true if the stat that says you stink — blown save — was given to another guy.  But don’t think you got away with this, Heath Bell, we were…

  5. Eric Chavez leaves game with whiplash, possible concussion

    May 3, 2012, 8:52 AM EDT

    Eric Chavez, Joe Girardi

    Eric Chavez has a pretty rich injury history, but this one is a lot different than a bum shoulder or knee or something.  He left last night’s Yankees-Orioles game in the middle of an at bat due to what is being called whiplash and concussion symptoms. He likely sustained the injury in the top of the…

  6. The Daily News, Yahoo! not letting the facts get in the way of sensationalism

    May 3, 2012, 8:31 AM EDT

    Andy Pettitte

    I predicted this yesterday, but I awake this morning to find two outlets — the New York Daily News and Yahoo! — each going with completely inaccurate takes on the Andy Pettitte testimony today.  First the Daily News: Then Yahoo! He neither backpedaled on nor backed off his prior testimony.  He was entirely consistent.  The Daily News…

  7. And That Happened: Wednesday’s Scores and Highlights

    Chipper Jones

    Three walkoff homers and a no-hitter? Holy moley, that was a great night of baseball guys.

  8. Will Jered Weaver’s no-hitter help Angels turn things around?

    May 3, 2012, 2:35 AM EDT

    Jered Weaver couldn’t hold back the tears in the aftermath of his first career no-hitter on Wednesday night against the Minnesota Twins. After an emotional celebration with his Angels teammates, he hugged his parents and his wife before taking the microphone to address the crowd. “My mom, my dad, my wife, I mean this is…

  9. Fun facts from the Braves’ 15-13 win over the Phillies

    May 3, 2012, 1:33 AM EDT

    Philadelphia Phillies v Atlanta Braves

    To put it mildly, the Braves and Phillies played a wild one on Wednesday, with Atlanta winning 15-13 on Chipper Jones‘ walkoff homer in the 11th. It was the highest-scoring extra-inning game since 2006. Here are a few things one doesn’t see everyday: – Roy Halladay gave up eight runs, the most he had allowed…

  10. Twins offense finds a new low in Jered Weaver’s no-hitter

    May 3, 2012, 1:07 AM EDT

    The Twins' previous low - Joe Mauer, wax Troy Polamalu

    Jerome Williams hadn’t pitched a complete game since 2003 before shutting out the Twins on Tuesday. That was humiliating. What followed Wednesday was even more distressing. Jered Weaver pitched his first no-hitter as the Angels routed the Twins 9-0. It gave the struggling Halos a three-game sweep at home and dropped the Twins to an…

  11. Jered Weaver stymies Twins for first career no-hitter

    May 3, 2012, 12:27 AM EDT

    We’ve got a big no-no alert tonight out in Anaheim. Angels starter Jered Weaver is just three outs away from completing a no-hitter against the Twins. He’s fanned eight batters and walked just one in a dominant showing against a punchless Minnesota lineup, and is sitting on 111 pitches as the game moves to the…

    damon ap

    From Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer comes word that new Indians left fielder Johnny Damon made a premature exit from Wednesday’s game against the White Sox due to what is being described as “general cramping.” Damon officially joined the Indians on Tuesday and was making his Cleveland debut tonight. The 38-year-old finished 0-for-3 with a…

  13. Jeff Suppan goes five scoreless in spot start with Padres

    May 2, 2012, 10:23 PM EDT

    jeff suppan getty

    Veteran right-hander Jeff Suppan bounced around between a few different minor league systems in 2011 and had surrendered nine runs (on 17 hits) in 6 2/3 innings through his first two starts this season at Triple-A Tuscon. So it was a shock when the Padres announced Tuesday that they were calling him up for a…

  14. Rockies demote righty Jhoulys Chacin and his 7.30 ERA

    May 2, 2012, 9:38 PM EDT

    chacin getty

    Jhoulys Chacin posted a 3.48 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 7.8 K/9 in 333-plus innings between 2010-2011, becoming one of the only reliable members of an ever-fluctuating Colorado starting rotation. But the good times have suddenly come to a screeching halt for the 24-year-old Rockies right-hander. Chacin allowed 11 hits and seven earned runs in 4 2/3 innings…

  16. Diamondbacks unsure on Vladimir Guerrero after tryout

    May 2, 2012, 8:06 PM EDT

    vladimir guerrero getty

    The Diamondbacks held a workout for free agent Vladimir Guerrero on Monday in the Dominican. It’s Tuesday night and they haven’t announced a deal, so the safe guess is Arizona isn’t interested. And while GM Kevin Towers didn’t completely rule the whole thing out Wednesday in a conversation with the Arizona Republic‘s Nick Piecoro, he did…

  17. Ryan Zimmerman not expected to return before Tuesday

    May 2, 2012, 7:22 PM EDT

    zim getty

    Nationals third baseman Ryan Zimmerman (sore right shoulder) told reporters on Tuesday that he is aiming to return from the 15-day disabled list in time for Sunday night’s game against the division rival Phillies. But it’s just not going to happen. According to beat writer Mark Zuckerman of CSN Washington’s Nats Insider, manager Davey Johnson…

  18. Clayton Kershaw gives up three homers for first time

    May 2, 2012, 6:41 PM EDT

    Clayton Kershaw

    It was bombs away off Clayton Kershaw on Wednesday, as the Rockies hit three homers off the Cy Young Award winner on their way to an 8-5 win. The red-hot Carlos Gonzalez hit the first and last of those homers, with Wilin Rosario supplying a shot in the middle. Kershaw had allowed just the two…

  19. Jim Tracy gives Matt Kemp the Barry Bonds treatment

    May 2, 2012, 6:38 PM EDT

    Jim Tracy

    And it backfired. Matt Kemp, the NL player of the month for April, hadn’t been intentionally walked all season before Colorado manager Jim Tracy gave him two free passes today. It was the second of those that was truly surprising, though: Kemp was put on as the tying run with a man on first and…

  20. Chris Johnson powers Astros with two homers, six RBI

    May 2, 2012, 6:02 PM EDT

    Chris Johnson

    Chris Johnson entered Wednesday without a homer in 86 at-bats, but he took Chris Schwinden deep in each of his first two plate appearances today to lead the Astros to an 8-1 win over the Mets. Johnson drove in five runs with the two homers and later added a sixth RBI on a single on…
