  1. Tigers activate Brandon Inge from the disabled list

    Aug 4, 2010, 4:29 PM EDT

    Yesterday, our own Aaron Gleeman told you that Brandon Inge was “ahead of schedule” in his rehab from a broken left hand and was cleared to begin a minor league rehab assignment with Low-A West Michigan. Well, apparently one game was all the Tigers needed to see, because Inge was activated from the 15-day disabled…

  2. Wilson Ramos is off to a pretty nice start with Triple-A Syracuse

    Aug 4, 2010, 3:45 PM EDT

    Just a short while ago, Mark Zuckerman of Nats Insider and CSNWashington.com brought us up to speed on what Wilson Ramos has been up to since being acquired from the Twins for closer Matt Capps last Thursday: Since his acquisition from Twins, Nats C Wilson Ramos is 6-for-15, HR, 4 RBI, 3B, 4 R at…

  3. Will A-Rod break Barry Bonds' record?

    Aug 4, 2010, 3:14 PM EDT

    A-Rod has 600 homers. Does he have 163 more left in the tank?

  4. HBT Daily: Howard, Youkilis and the scourge that is A-Rod

    Aug 4, 2010, 2:50 PM EDT

    Our daily take on the news of the day. Today: big injuries to big first basemen and a tempest in a teapot in the Bronx. In other words: nothing new.

  5. Poll: What does A-Rod's 600th home run mean to you?

    Aug 4, 2010, 2:20 PM EDT

    I really want to tap into your feeeeeelings on this one, man. Don’t hold back . . .

  6. Rockies expected to move Aaron Cook to the bullpen

    Aug 4, 2010, 2:02 PM EDT

    Aaron Cook has the distinction of being the Rockies’ all-time leader in wins, but none of that matters as the team’s playoff chances continue to fade by the minute. A team source tells Troy Renck of the Denver Post that the Rockies are likely to move Cook to the bullpen, clearing a spot for Jhoulys…

  7. Our long national nightmare is over: A-Rod just hit #600

    Aug 4, 2010, 1:26 PM EDT

    Alex Rodriguez just hit a home run off Shaun Marcum in the first inning of the Blue Jays-Yankees game. Our long national, er, make that our short, strange local nightmare is over. Now Kevin Kernan is going to have to trash his “A-Rod’s failure to hit his 600th home run is prolonging the recession” column…

  8. Carlos Zambrano is returning to the rotation

    Aug 4, 2010, 1:20 PM EDT

    Paul Sullivan reports that the Cubs are putting Carlos Zambrano back into the rotation. He’ll get the start against the Giants on Monday. This makes perfect sense. If the Cubs think they can trade Zambrano — maybe a crazy thought, but one they’ve been having — the only possible hope they have to do so…

  9. Joe Saunders has something to prove

    Aug 4, 2010, 1:01 PM EDT

    Joe Saunders already told reporters last week that he feels he is “just as good” as Dan Haren and through two starts with his new team, it’s pretty clear he is on a mission to prove just that. After holding the Phillies to two runs over seven innings in his D-Backs’ debut last Thursday, Saunders…

  10. Chris Coghlan may be back sooner than expected

    Aug 4, 2010, 12:45 PM EDT

    Marlins’ outfielder/3B Chris Coghlan may soon begin taking ground balls and taking batting practice, which is a sign that he will be putting off knee surgery until after the season. Assuming a medical exam he was scheduled to have last night turned up nothing crazy, Coghlan could soon be sent out for a rehab assignment…

  11. Jacoby Ellsbury is coming back tonight

    Aug 4, 2010, 12:20 PM EDT

    At long last, Jacoby Ellsbury is expected to be activated from the disabled list for tonight’s game against the Indians. Ellsbury went 3-for-5 with a run scored and an RBI as the designated hitter in his final rehab game with Triple-A Pawtucket on Tuesday. In three rehab games with the PawSox, the speedy center fielder…

  12. For the 1,567th time: baseball does not need a salary cap

    Aug 4, 2010, 11:59 AM EDT

    And even if it does, the Yankees trading for Austin Kearns is no evidence of it.

  13. Rick Dempsey thinks he should have gotten the O's managerial job

    Aug 4, 2010, 11:13 AM EDT

    Rick Dempsey believes he was stepped over. Which may have been the way Angelos wanted it, but it ain’t the way he wanted it! He’s smaht! Not like everybody says! “I’m very, very disappointed, to tell you the truth. I don’t begrudge Buck getting the opportunity. He is going to be a hell of a…

  14. Manny's rehab hits a bit of a snag

    Aug 4, 2010, 10:52 AM EDT

    Dodgers manager Joe Torre acknowledged Tuesday that Manny Ramirez suffered a setback during his rehab from a right calf strain and will need at least another week before going out on a minor league rehab assignment, according to Evan Drellich of MLB.com. The team made the assessment after Dodgers trainer Stan Conte visited Ramirez at…

  15. Erik Bedard to undergo third shoulder surgery

    Aug 4, 2010, 10:20 AM EDT

    It sure sounded like this situation was headed this way, but now we have confirmation. The Mariners announced Tuesday that Erik Bedard will undergo shoulder surgery Friday, according to Jim Street of MLB.com. The surgery will be performed by Mariners team physician Edward Khalfayan and Dr. Lewis Yocum, according to the team. Yocum performed the…

  16. Don Wakamatsu is given a vote of confidence. How dreaded was it?

    Aug 4, 2010, 9:50 AM EDT

    Personally, this one sounds pretty dreaded to me.

  17. The Red Sox and Indians throw at, jaw at one-another

    Aug 4, 2010, 8:49 AM EDT

    It’s probably a good thing that no one truly fights in baseball anymore, but I’d be lying if I said that there wasn’t something, I dunno, deflating about seeing everyone run out onto the field to simply . . . grumble at one-another.  That’s what the Indians and Red Sox did last night. Here’s some…

  18. No, the Yankees did not lose because of A-Rod's failure to hit his 600th home run

    Aug 4, 2010, 8:19 AM EDT

    Let the record reflect that Blue Jays’ starter Rickey Romero was rough stuff last night. After going a mere two and two-thirds innings while giving up eight runs when he faced the Yankees a month ago, Romero came back last night and silenced the Bombers’ bats. He struggled through the first inning but rebounded nicely…

  19. And That Happened: Tuesday's Scores and Highlights

    Aug 4, 2010, 6:18 AM EDT

    The worst part about Jeff Francoeur hitting the game-winning homer? The Atlanta papers will now start agitating for the Braves to somehow bring him back to the Braves.
