  1. Andy Pettitte unlikely to return before mid-September

    Aug 19, 2010, 12:49 PM EDT

    Andy Pettitte suffered a setback in his recovery from a strained groin while throwing a bullpen session Tuesday and an MRI exam taken afterward showed that the injury hasn’t healed as quickly as hoped. Wallace Matthews of ESPNNewYork.com reports that he “will not be ready to return to the mound until the first week of…

  2. Vin Scully meets the mullet

    Aug 19, 2010, 12:30 PM EDT

    A mullet is business in the front, party in the rear. Vin Scully, on the other hand, is all business.

  3. Brad Hawpe looking for job with contender following release

    Aug 19, 2010, 12:18 PM EDT

    Brad Hawpe was informed before yesterday’s game that it would be his last with the Rockies and the veteran outfielder delivered a pinch-hit single in a 3-2 win before being released just hours later. Hawpe cleared waivers earlier this week, but the Rockies were apparently unable to find a trade partner and decided to simply…

  4. HBT Daily: Derrek Lee, the Reds and my favorite Earl Weaver quote

    Aug 19, 2010, 11:59 AM EDT

    Like I said yesterday: I ain’t thrilled with the Derrek Lee trade. But he sure beats trotting the corpse of Troy Glaus out there each day

  5. Lance Berkman placed on disabled list with ankle injury

    Aug 19, 2010, 11:49 AM EDT

    This morning Lance Berkman told reporters that he felt good enough to play through the ankle injury that knocked him out of Sunday’s game and has kept him out of the lineup since, but the Yankees have decided to place him on the disabled list anyway. Joe Girardi said Berkman’s injury “hadn’t progressed quite as…

  6. Does Tim Lincecum miss Bengie Molina?

    Aug 19, 2010, 11:28 AM EDT

    Hurt? Out of synch? Pining for the fjords? Maybe he just misses his old catcher.

  7. Finishing "a triple short of the cycle" is really not a big deal

    Aug 19, 2010, 11:17 AM EDT

    Joe Mauer remained red hot last night, going 4-for-5 with a homer and a double as the Twins extended their AL Central lead to five games, and afterward various reports about the game noted how the reigning MVP finished “a triple short of the cycle.” That phrase appears constantly in game stories throughout every season…

  8. Jayson Werth won't do well in New York

    Aug 19, 2010, 10:59 AM EDT

    Can someone as sensitive about his privacy as Jayson Werth seems to be survive in the Big Apple?

  9. Carlos Gonzalez hung onto the ball and escaped with merely a bruised knee after full-speed wall collision

    Aug 19, 2010, 10:46 AM EDT

    Last night the Rockies beat the Dodgers in extra innings thanks in large part to Carlos Gonzalez’s exceptional catch in the sixth frame. With a runner on first base Casey Blake sent a Jason Hammel pitch deep into the gap in right-center field, but Gonzalez sprinted after it and made the grab inches from the…

  10. Despite monster debut, J.P. Arencibia sent back to minors

    Aug 19, 2010, 10:15 AM EDT

    J.P. Arencibia had one of the best debuts in baseball history on August 7, going 4-for-5 with two homers after being called up from Triple-A to replace the injured John Buck. Arencibia is one of the best catching prospects in baseball and the 24-year-old former first-round pick is definitely Toronto’s catcher of the future, but…

  11. David Wright got all barfy; left game

    Aug 19, 2010, 9:59 AM EDT

    It takes a lot to get David Wright out of the linuep, so it’s pretty safe to say that whatever it was that caused him to check out of last night’s game in Houston was serious: “Something came on about the fourth or fifth inning,” Wright said. “I felt real nauseous and just throwing up…

  12. Union files a K-Rod grievance

    Aug 19, 2010, 9:27 AM EDT

    It was promised and expected and last night it happened: the Players’ Association filed a grievance against the Mets over him being placed on the disqualified list and for deeming his contract non-guaranteed. You’ve heard me go on and on about this so I won’t bore you with that again. But how telling is it…

  13. The Marlins give Wes Helms a one-year extension

    Aug 19, 2010, 9:12 AM EDT

    There goes all of that crazy Wes Helms speculation I was looking forward to at this year’s Winter Meetings: The Florida Marlins have signed third baseman Wes Helms to a $1 million, one-year contract extension through the 2011 season. The Marlins generally don’t sign players to extensions during the season, but have been talking to…

  14. Larry Bowa gambled and lost

    Aug 19, 2010, 8:53 AM EDT

    I missed this when I was doing the recaps, but the ending of the Dodgers-Rockies game was pretty nifty. Well, if you were a Rockies fan or if you like to rag on third base coaches and stuff. Bottom of the 10th, two down, Dodgers down by a run. Reed Johnson was on first base…

  15. Quote of the Day: Ozzie Guillen on Jim Thome

    Aug 19, 2010, 8:25 AM EDT

    Ozzie Guillen didn’t want a DH this season. His DH from last season killed the Sox on Tuesday night. Let’s see how Ozzie responds to questions about that!

  16. And That Happened: Wednesday's Scores and Highlights

  17. It's high fashion: Introducing the 'BRayser'

    Aug 19, 2010, 2:01 AM EDT

    Everything is going right for the Tampa Bay Rays lately. They just completed an impressive sweep of the Texas Rangers, signed their top draft picks and are stocking up on some alleged pitching talent. So why the need for a wardrobe gimmick? Because it’s pretty dang sweet, that’s why. It’s called the “BRayser” — which…

  18. Report: Rockies will release Brad Hawpe late Wednesday

    Aug 18, 2010, 10:04 PM EDT

    Troy Renck of the Denver Post has been all over the Brad Hawpe news front since he was placed on waivers last week.  And now Renck has a breaking report.  The Post columnist and beat writer heard from sources Wednesday that Hawpe is going to be released after tonight’s game against the Dodgers and made…

  19. The Aroldis Chapman Era begins on Sept. 1

    Aug 18, 2010, 9:42 PM EDT

    John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports that the Reds will call up top pitching prospect Aroldis Chapman from Triple-A Louisville on September 1.  Why not sooner?  Well, here’s what manager Dusty Baker told Fay and the Enquirer on Wednesday: “Who do you take off (the roster)?” Baker said. “It would be somebody else who…

    John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer is reporting that the Reds have offered manager Dusty Baker a contract extension in the wake of a 68-51 start to the 2010 season. We’re thinking he will accept.
