    The latest development in a wild day for the Nationals, Amanda Comak of the Washington Times reports that Brad Lidge will be placed on the 15-day disabled list with an abdominal wall strain. No word yet on the severity of the injury, but Comak compares it to a sports hernia, which certainly doesn’t sound good.…

  3. Angels strip Jordan Walden of closing duties, give job to Scott Downs

    Apr 27, 2012, 5:24 PM EDT

    Jordan Walden

    One blown save was all it took for Jordan Walden to lose the Angels’ closer job. After saving 32 games as a rookie last season Walden didn’t get his first save opportunity until April 20 this year. He converted it, but then coughed up two runs yesterday to blow his second save chance. And today…

    Washington Nationals Photo Day

    Ryan Zimmerman needing a stint on the disabled list certainly isn’t a surprise considering the third baseman’s shoulder injury hasn’t shown any improvement, but the Nationals’ choice to replace him on the roster is a shocker. General manager Mike Rizzo announced that Bryce Harper will be called up from Triple-A tomorrow to make his MLB…

  5. Picture of the Day: Chris Parmelee “looks like he got punched by Mike Tyson”

    The good news is that Twins rookie Chris Parmelee has yet to experience any concussion-related symptoms after being drilled in the helmet Wednesday and seems likely to avoid the disabled list. The bad news, as Twins media communications staffer explains, is that Parmelee now “looks like he got punched by Mike Tyson”:

    Rafael Perez Getty

    Rafael Perez showed significantly diminished velocity in his last outing, with his fastball topping out in the mid-80s, and not surprisingly it turns out he was injured. Cleveland has placed Perez on the disabled list with a strained lat muscle in his shoulder, recalling Nick Hagadone from Triple-A to replace him on the roster. Perez…

    Jesse Crain hasn’t pitched since April 20 because of an oblique injury and after leaving him on the active roster for a week the White Sox placed the reliever on the disabled list today.

  9. Jose Reyes is taking the night off, but Hanley Ramirez will stay at third base

    Apr 27, 2012, 1:43 PM EDT

    Jose Reyes, Hanley Ramirez

    Prior to the season Ozzie Guillen said that Hanley Ramirez wouldn’t be asked to shift from third base to shortstop if Jose Reyes was out of the lineup for a short period of time and sure enough the manager is following through with that today. Reyes is taking the night off against the Diamondbacks in…

    Andres Torres

    Barring another setback with his calf injury Andres Torres is slated to return from the disabled list and rejoin the Mets lineup Monday. Before that happens his minor-league rehab assignment will move from Single-A to Triple-A, with Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reporting that he’ll play for Buffalo tonight and tomorrow.

    Apr 27, 2012, 12:35 PM EDT

    Houston Astros v Washington Nationals

    Kyle Weiland was going to have his next turn in the rotation skipped anyway, but instead the Astros have placed him on the disabled list with right shoulder bursitis. Weiland, who was acquired from the Red Sox in the Mark Melancon-for-Jed Lowrie swap in mid-December, went 0-3 with a 6.62 ERA in three starts while…

    Micah Owings

    Micah Owings went six days between appearances in an effort to heal his sore forearm, pitched 1.2 innings Wednesday, and has now been placed on the disabled list.

    Ryan Zimmerman‘s shoulder injury showed no improvement after a round of batting practice yesterday, so the Nationals third baseman will be examined by a specialist in Los Angeles. Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post reports that Zimmerman is expected to get a cortisone shot, which typically knocks players out of action for at least 2-3…

  15. In addition to assault Delmon Young is being charged with a hate crime for “anti-Semitic remarks”

    Delmon Young

    Not only was “a highly intoxicated” Delmon Young arrested and charged with assault last night in New York, the Detroit Free Press reports that he’s also being charged with an “aggravated harassment hate crime” for what detective Joseph Cavitolo called “anti-Semitic remarks” during the assault. Police told the Free Press that it’s unclear if the…

  16. Nick Johnson’s career OBP dips below .400

    Apr 27, 2012, 10:30 AM EDT

    Baltimore Orioles infielder Johnson reaches for a grounder during workouts at the team's spring training complex in Sarasota

    I’ll admit, the biggest reason I’m writing this post is because I think it’s kind of neat to be talking about Nick Johnson playing baseball games. He’s done so little of that over the years due to injury and all of that. Kind of a shame given how much promise he once had. But alas,…

    According to the New York Post a “highly intoxicated” Delmon Young was arrested and charged with assault late last night/early this morning while in New York to play the Yankees.

    Bobby Valentine Reuters

    We mentioned before the season that Bobby Valentine agreed to do a weekly radio show Michael Kay in New York.  Unusual for a Red Sox manager? Sure. But kinda harmless, yes? Maybe not says Richard Sandomir of the New York Times. He finds it quite odd, especially in light of the Red Sox’ slow start:…

    Detroit Tigers  Photo Day

    It’s not been a great week for the Tigers. It just got worse. The Tigers landed in New York last night for this weekend’s series against the Yankees and one of them — Delmon Young — had a bit too much to drink last night and got all shovey outside of a Midtown hotel: Detroit…

  20. Wait, Brian Cashman has to tell us how he’s going to fix the Yankees pitching problems?

    Apr 27, 2012, 9:12 AM EDT

    Tampa Bay Rays v New York Yankees

    This, from Bob Raissman’s latest column at the Daily News about the Michael Pineda fallout, is quite a remarkable passage: It is up to Cashman to fix this problem. No, he’s not responsible for Pineda’s injury, but he is responsible for preventing what could easily become a pitching disaster. It’s also up to Cashman to…
