    Jul 23, 2011, 8:23 AM EDT

    Brendan Ryan, Dustin Ackley, Justin Smoak

    Let’s dwell on the negative for a second, shall we? The Mariners’ losing streak reached 13 games last night with a 7-4 loss to the Red Sox. Felix Hernandez gave up two runs over the first six innings, but the Red Sox put up a five-spot in the seventh to put the game out of…

  2. Nyjer Morgan may or may not have flipped off Giants fans Friday

    Jul 23, 2011, 2:07 AM EDT

    Nyjer Morgan

    Tired of getting the business from the Giants fans in center field on Friday night, Nyjer Morgan definitely made some sort of gesture following his catch in the seventh inning.  And that gesture, for all of the world, looked like he was flipping the fans the bird. The pictures, though, suggest otherwise.  He certainly had…

  3. Rays promote Desmond Jennings from Triple-A Durham

    Jul 22, 2011, 11:11 PM EDT

    Desmond Jennings

    12:00 a.m. EDT update: Upton is staying put for now.  The Rays announced after the game that Jennings was being called up, but that he’d be taking shortstop Reid Brignac‘s spot.  Brignac, whose demotion was long overdue, hit just .193/.234/.219 in 187 at-bats and was losing playing time at shortstop to Sean Rodriguez and Elliot Johnson. …

    Adrian Beltre

    Adrian Beltre suffered a strained left hamstring running the bases in the fifth inning of Friday’s game against the Blue Jays and will undergo an MRI on Saturday.

    Jul 22, 2011, 9:45 PM EDT

    Arizona Diamondbacks v Oakland Athletics

    With Carlos Gomez‘s status in doubt for the rest of the season following a broken collarbone, the Brewers are actively seeking a replacement for their outfield. Danny Knobler of CBSSports.com reports that the Brewers already had a scout watching the Athletics and that Coco Crisp is a possibility. Nyjer Morgan, a left-handed hitter, has taken…

  6. Whatever happened to Trevor Cahill?

    Jul 22, 2011, 9:20 PM EDT

    Trevor Cahill

    After three straight solid starts in a row, Trevor Cahill was just torched for a career-high 10 runs in two-plus innings by the Yankees on Friday night.  He gave up five runs in a second inning that only ended because Derek Jeter was thrown out at third after tagging up on a sac fly and then five…

    Jul 22, 2011, 8:30 PM EDT

    Jason Giambi

    With the Rockies falling out of contention, Jason Giambi could be on the move.  The 40-year-old slugger told the Denver Post on Friday that he has talked with Rockies GM Dan O’Dowd about a trade back to the American League. Giambi has been outstanding in limited action this season, hitting .266/.364/.638 with 10 homers and 23…

    Jul 22, 2011, 8:01 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Brewers v Atlanta Braves

    UPDATE: Guess he’s just fine. Uggla just hit a pinch-hit two-run homer off Reds’ right-hander Nick Masset to put the Braves ahead 6-4 in the top of the ninth. 8:01 PM: Dan Uggla is out of the Braves’ lineup for the second straight day after straining his left calf during Wednesday’s loss to the Rockies. The…

  10. Jay Bruce out of Friday’s lineup with dizziness

    Jul 22, 2011, 7:28 PM EDT

    Cincinnati Reds v St. Louis Cardinals

    The Reds are missing more than Scott Rolen tonight. According to Hal McCoy of the Dayton Daily News, Jay Bruce was scratched from tonight’s lineup against the Braves due to dizziness. However, the young outfielder said his symptoms have nothing to do with the mid-90s temperatures outside. “Because I haven’t been outside today. I just…

    Jul 22, 2011, 7:06 PM EDT

    Jeff Conine

    Mr. Marlin isn’t down with the team’s present superstar.

    Jul 22, 2011, 6:52 PM EDT

    Chris Iannetta

    Cleveland and Pittsburgh are among a number of teams to have asked Colorado about catcher Chris Iannetta, according to FOXSports.com’s Jon Paul Morosi. Iannetta’s name has come up in rumors numerous times over the last couple of years, largely because so many are convinced that the Rockies don’t value his contributions properly.  They’ve been guilty of…

  13. Troublesome shoulder puts Scott Rolen back on the DL

    Jul 22, 2011, 6:34 PM EDT

    Scott Rolen

    Incredibly enough, Scott Rolen started at third base for the NL All-Star team earlier this month.  That may go down as his one good memory from 2011. Rolen was placed back on the disabled list Friday because of more pain in the left shoulder that’s troubled him for years.  Rolen had played in just one…

  14. Carlos Gonzalez goes on DL after re-injuring wrist

    Jul 22, 2011, 6:24 PM EDT

    Carlos Gonzalez

    As speculated Thursday, Carlos Gonzalez has been forced onto the disabled list after aggravating his right wrist during a swing against the Braves.

  15. Mike Trout likely to stick when Peter Bourjos is activated

    Jul 22, 2011, 6:15 PM EDT

    Mike Trout

    At least for a little while longer. Peter Bourjos got through his workout fine Friday and will come off the DL on Saturday after missing 15 days with a strained right hamstring, the Orange County Register reports.  Angels manager Mike Scioscia already said he’ll start in center field tomorrow. Still, the plan is for Mike…

  18. After two years off and numerous setbacks, Brandon Webb needs another shoulder surgery

    Jul 22, 2011, 5:17 PM EDT

    Giants Fan Attacked

    Some details are emerging in connection with the arrests in the Bryan Stow case. Specifically, an anonymous law enforcement official is saying that the two men who were arrested yesterday made incriminating statements that implicated them in the attack. There was not, however, any forensic evidence against the men, so this could all be based on…

  20. Luke Scott comes off DL, will play through torn shoulder again

    Jul 22, 2011, 4:48 PM EDT

    Baltimore Orioles v Atlanta Braves

    Hitting two homers in a Double-A game yesterday apparently convinced the Orioles that Luke Scott was done resting and rehabbing his shoulder injury, because he’s off the disabled list and back in the lineup for tonight’s game. Scott performed horribly while trying to play through a partially torn labrum, hitting .187 in a 35-game stretch…
