    Aug 6, 2010, 12:25 PM EDT

    The Astros have promoted prospect right-hander Jordan Lyles to Triple-A Round Rock, according to Zachary Levine of the Houston Chronicle. Lyles, a former supplementary first-round pick in 2008, has a 3.36 ERA over parts of three seasons in the minors, including a 3.12 ERA and 115/35 K/BB over 21 outings with Double-A Corpus Christi this…

  2. Buy a Chevy, have dinner with Pete Rose

    Aug 6, 2010, 11:55 AM EDT

    I’m not sure I’m a big fan of either ends of that bargain, but feel free to judge for yourself from the video.

  3. Steroids do not help hitters hit home runs

    Aug 6, 2010, 11:33 AM EDT

    Everything you think you know about performance enhancing drugs in baseball is wrong.

  4. HBT Daily: spite streaks, rooting for the Mets and . . . Buck Naked

    Aug 6, 2010, 11:09 AM EDT

    I’m not sure what’s worse: my random Buck Naked reference or the fact that I pull out a “M-E-T-S Mets! Mets! Mets!” cheer. Thank God it’s Friday.

  5. Would Jon Daniels jump ship to the Mets?

    Aug 6, 2010, 10:45 AM EDT

    As Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com reminded us last month, Rangers general manager Jon Daniels has the ability to opt out of his contract after the season in the event of new ownership. Now that Chuck Greenberg and Nolan Ryan have landed the team, Richard Durrett of ESPNDallas.com asked Daniels if he has any intention to…

  6. Jose Guillen has some potential suitors in the Yankees, Giants

    Aug 6, 2010, 10:22 AM EDT

    Jose Guillen is one of the many, many guys who wouldn’t be nearly as maligned as he is if it weren’t for his contract.  I mean, no, he’s no great shakes, but if he was doing one year deals for reasonable money every winter no one would be saying bad things about him. Well, not…

  7. The Royals may consider dealing Zack Greinke this winter

    Aug 6, 2010, 9:58 AM EDT

    Buster Olney says that the Royals were telling teams before the trade deadline that they’d listen to offers for the frustrated Zack Greinke. Obviously any offer for him would have to have been out-of-this-world, but their ears were on.  Olney thinks that their ears may be even more on come this winter. If the Royals’…

  8. The Cardinals are eyeing Andy LaRoche

    Aug 6, 2010, 9:33 AM EDT

    Cardinals’ third baseman David Freese is out for the rest of the season due to an ankle injury, so St. Louis would like some infield help. A possible target: Andy LaRoche. That according to Rob Biertempfer of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. I know LaRoche’s stock has fallen quite a bit since his days as a prospect,…

  9. The Orioles to honor Jim Gentile before tonight's game

    Aug 6, 2010, 9:13 AM EDT

    As we mentioned last week, the stat police have figured out that Roger Maris was credited with one too many RBIs in 1961, thus putting him back into a tie with the Orioles’ Jim Gentile for the league lead with 141. In a nice gesture, the Orioles will honor Gentile — who is still alive…

  10. Behold: the outfield catch of the decade

    Aug 6, 2010, 8:50 AM EDT

    The best video you’ll see today: If you look closely you can see the wires holding up the centerfielder for the Hiroshima Carp.

  12. And That Happened: Thursday's Scores and Highlights

    Aug 6, 2010, 5:47 AM EDT

    Bad umps and a bad ballpark makes for a pretty crappy Thursday for baseball teams in Florida.

  13. Nats' Zimmermann again impressive in rehab outing

    Aug 5, 2010, 10:05 PM EDT

    Jordan Zimmermann continues to carve up minor league hitters. When might he join Stephen Strasburg in the Nationals’ suddenly-talented and suddenly-youthful starting rotation?

  14. Kyle Lohse purchases ping-pong table for AA clubhouse

    Aug 5, 2010, 8:48 PM EDT

    It’s common for rehabbing major leaguers to spoil the fellas in the minor league clubhouses that they visit.  Whether it’s a meal, a new recliner or a flat-screen television, the big leaguers throw down some cash and the underpaid farm hands live in luxury for a moment.  Kyle Lohse underwent surgery on his right forearm…

  15. Torre: Russell Martin unlikely to return this season

    Aug 5, 2010, 7:54 PM EDT

    According to Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times, Dodgers manager Joe Torre said Thursday that catcher Russell Martin is unlikely to return from the disabled list this season…

  16. Loss of Youkilis adds another bump to a rough road

    Aug 5, 2010, 7:00 PM EDT

    The Red Sox might not be doomed yet, but the team with the eighth-best record in baseball just became an even bigger long shot to play in the postseason after losing Kevin Youkilis to a season-ending thumb injury. In the midst of a third straight wildly productive season, Youkilis was hitting .307/.411/.564 up until hurting…

  17. Carloses Santana, Carrasco to have surgery tomorrow; out for the year

    Aug 5, 2010, 6:20 PM EDT

    UPDATE: This is what happens when you get your news from Twitter. A correction to the record has been made: it’s Carlos Santana alone getting knee surgery. Carrasco is safe and sound here in Columbus, where the women are strong, the men are good looking, and all the children are above average. Not a good…

  18. Braves' Medlen has a partial tear in his UCL, Tommy John surgery likely

    Aug 5, 2010, 5:59 PM EDT

    Yet Derek Lowe continues to go through life in perfect health. Sorry, that was bitter. I don’t wish harm to come to Lowe. I just really wish it didn’t come to Kris Medlen. He’s young and promising and — most importantly — will likely help anchor the Braves’ rotation in the future when Derek Lowe…

  19. Mark Cuban speaks about the Rangers auction

    Aug 5, 2010, 5:36 PM EDT

    Mark Cuban — as is his wont — took to his blog today to give a very long and very detailed explanation of his involvement in the Texas Rangers auction.  There’s a lot of play-by-play of how he got sucked into the whole crazy business. And it’s all very interesting, so you should definitely read…

  20. Quote of the Days: Rays' Joe Maddon wants a 'real' field

    Aug 5, 2010, 5:15 PM EDT

    There was no disco dancing for Joe Maddon after Jason Kubel did his little turn on the catwalk Thursday.
