    May 21, 2012, 12:48 PM EDT

    Dylan Bundy

    Dylan Bundy’s scoreless-innings streak was snapped earlier this month when he allowed an unearned run, but the 19-year-old Orioles phenom still hasn’t coughed up an earned run as a pro. Bundy extended that streak yesterday at low Single-A, tossing five shutout innings while allowing just one hit and zero walks. Overall this season the No.…

    Brewers camo cap

    The past couple of years MLB has put their players in white caps with red white and blue logos on them for Memorial Day, Fourth of July and September 11th. This year they’re doing something different: normally-colored caps, but the logo has a camouflage logo in it. You can see them here. I’m not sure…

    Daisuke Matsuzaka‘s minor-league rehab assignment and return from Tommy John elbow surgery has been put on hold because of what the Red Sox are calling pain in his trapezius muscle.

    There are a lot of ways for careers to end, but if Jesse Litsch‘s career ends this way, it will be simply awful. Back in March, Litsch was shut down due to some shoulder soreness. During his down time, he was given an anti-inflammatory injection in the area of the pain. That got infected, however, and…

  5. Vernon Wells likely DL bound with thumb injury

    May 21, 2012, 11:19 AM EDT

    Vernon Wells

    As if losing a 13-inning game against the Padres on an error-induced walk-off run scored by a pitcher who pinch-hit wasn’t bad enough, the Angels also lost Vernon Wells and Ryan Langerhans to injuries. Wells injured his thumb stealing second base and Alden Gonzalez of reports that he was wearing a cast after the…

    There are about six things awesome about this story, but suffice it to say that the fact that Dmitri Young had a kickass baseball card collection is the awesomest. Now it’s gone, he got $2.5 million for it, and he’s using a portion of that for charity. Not so awesome: a reminder that Robert Fick…

    Cincinnati Reds v Oakland Athletics

    Manny Ramirez‘s comeback is on hold, as the 39-year-old designated hitter was held out of yesterday’s minor-league rehab game with a wrist injury.

  8. A comprehensive guide to on-field profanity

    May 21, 2012, 10:30 AM EDT


    Sam Miller of Baseball Prospectus has put together a guide to on-field F-bombs. Something of a taxonomy, actually, categorizing the different ways in which said bombs are thrown. Example: If you stand in the umpire’s face and yell “F***. S***” you’ll get ejected. If you walk away and say it just loud enough to be…

    Dodgers second baseman Mark Ellis had to undergo an emergency fasciotomy Saturday to relieve pressure in his left leg after suffering an injury while turning one at the bag on Friday night.

    More violence in the Dodger Stadium parking lot. This wasn’t a fandom-motivated thing like Bryan Stow, but still, dude: A man was dragged out of his car and beaten outside Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles on Sunday night after apparently causing a minor collision, KABC-TV reported. The victim suffered non-life-threatening head and facial injuries in…

    Ryan Howard

    There were two interesting articles in yesterday’s Philadelphia Inquirer: Bob Brookover reported how he was removed from Bright House Field in Clearwater last week while trying to cover Ryan Howard‘s rehab; and Frank Fitzpatrick questioned the Phillies’ giving Howard a cortisone shot in September and quotes medical experts who suggest that the shot could have contributed to…

    Before we get to Bryce Harper’s quote, something Cole Hamels said to Bob Nightengale of USA Today regarding the Nationals and Harper is wroth some scrutiny: “Yeah, I accidentally stirred the pot,” Hamels told USA TODAY Sports. “It was unintentional. But that’s just the way it happens sometimes.” OK, now it’s unintentional? So … you…

  14. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    May 21, 2012, 5:30 AM EDT

    Max Scherzer

    If I missed something important in one of these it’s because I was less plugged-in than usual yesterday. My daughter Mookie had her dance recital. Both ballet and jazz, which required me to sit through two (2)  separate shows. I kid you not: four hours of sitting in an auditorium to watch eight minutes of…

    May 20, 2012, 7:59 PM EDT

    Jonathan Lucroy

    Jonathan Lucroy had never hit cleanup before being penciled in there against the Twins and Jason Marquis on Sunday. The Brewers might want to leave him there for a while.
