    Ian Kinsler hasn’t played since suffering a high-ankle sprain on March 11 and MLB.com’s T.R. Sullivan reports that the All-Star second baseman will begin the season on the disabled list.

    Mar 31, 2010, 1:44 PM EDT

    Once upon a time Jeremy Sowers was considered a big part of the Indians’ long-term plans, as the former sixth overall pick in the 2004 draft breezed through the minors and went 7-4 with a 3.67 ERA in 14 starts as a 23-year-old rookie in 2006. Unfortunately he’s been a mess ever since, posting ERAs…

    Mar 31, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    We had been expecting this following his damn nigh brilliant outing against the Yankees last Friday night, but Charlie Manuel made it official last night: Jamie Moyer has beat out Kyle Kendrick for the Phillies’ pfifth starter job.

  13. Are the Royals interested in Jarrod Washburn?

    Mar 31, 2010, 10:00 AM EDT

    Last week Jon Heyman tweeted that the Mariners were interested in bringing Jarrod Washburn back. Yesterday he reported that the Royals were joining the bidding and had a “strong interest” in him. I can’t decide which force of nature is more powerful: Heyman’s shilling for Scott Boras clients like Washburn or the Royals signing of…

    The McCourts’ ownership saga was set to go to trial this spring, but was recently kicked. Yesterday the judge set the shindig to being on August 30th.

    Mar 31, 2010, 8:29 AM EDT

    Mark Sheldon of MLB.com says its almost certain that Aroldis Chapman is going to start the season in the minor leagues as his recent back spasms simply didn’t permit him to get in enough work in order to force his way into the competition for the fifth starter’s spot, which will be won by either…

    Mar 30, 2010, 10:28 PM EDT

Reimold…
