    Jul 18, 2010, 11:53 AM EDT

    Cardinals starter Adam Wainwright nearly won the National League Cy Young Award last season and he has put his name atop the list of candidates again this year. Through 20 starts, the 28-year-old right-hander is 14-5 with a 2.02 ERA, a…

  2. In case you were wondering, Matt Kemp won't be dealt

    Jul 18, 2010, 10:45 AM EDT

    It should come as no surprise that the Dodgers have not even considered trading center fielder Matt Kemp. Because they shouldn’t trade him.

  3. Volquez looks stellar in debut, Reds in good shape?

    Jul 18, 2010, 9:51 AM EDT

    The Reds, as a franchise, have enjoyed quite a breakout season.  Usually an afterthought by mid-June, they currently hold a half-game lead in the National League Central over the heavily favored Cardinals.  To boot, they’re even selling out games at Great American Ballpark in July. Drew Stubbs has developed into a multi-talented threat at the…

  4. Zambrano joining up with Triple-A Iowa this week

    Jul 18, 2010, 9:14 AM EDT

    Cubs pitcher Carlos Zambrano completed a three-week anger management program on Thursday and was sent to the club’s spring training complex in Mesa, Florida to begin working his way back to the big leagues. That process took a big leap forward this morning, as it was announced by the Des Moines Register that Big Z…

  5. Nationals not happy with offers for Adam Dunn

    Jul 17, 2010, 10:10 PM EDT

    The Nationals and first baseman Adam Dunn have had a bit of a falling out over negotiations toward a contract extension and now it looks as though Washington GM Mike Rizzo is trying to deal the big slugger.  The problem?  Other teams aren’t willing to give up much. Bill Ladson, who covers all things Nationals…

    Jul 17, 2010, 8:05 PM EDT

    Brewers starter Yovani Gallardo suffered a minor strain in his left oblique during a July 4 start against the Cardinals and hit the 15-day disabled list one day later.  It’s been less than two weeks, and we already have a return date for the Milwaukee ace. According to the Associated Press, Gallardo will be activated…

  8. UPDATE: The Red Sox are over the luxury tax threshold

    Jul 17, 2010, 6:02 PM EDT

    UPDATE: Buster Olney of ESPN.com hears that despite today’s news about exceeding the luxury tax threshold, the Red Sox are still working under the same parameters they always have. In other words, if the team has a chance to acquire a player that can help them get to the playoffs, they will do it. Olney…

  9. Carlos Marmol implodes in loss to Phillies

    Jul 17, 2010, 5:18 PM EDT

    Sometimes it just isn’t your day, but Saturday’s 4-1 loss to the Phillies is the latest sign that this just isn’t the Cubs’ year. Carlos Marmol, who struck out the side in impressive fashion on Friday, entered Saturday’s game protecting a one-run lead. After getting Greg Dobbs to fly out to begin the ninth inning,…

  10. Did the Indians scratch David Huff because of a tweet?

    Jul 17, 2010, 3:53 PM EDT

    UPDATE: David Huff’s agent Jim McDowell informed Anthony Castrovince of MLB.com that his client will not be starting on Sunday. And, apparently, the tweet is to blame. “If word got out about Huff possibly throwing a spot start on Sunday, it was not David’s doing. He did not post anything on Twitter about any of…

  11. Jose Reyes might be back Monday. Maybe.

    Jul 17, 2010, 3:45 PM EDT

    One thing we’ve learned about Jerry Manuel during his tenure as Mets’ skipper? Don’t trust him in regards to timelines. So take what he told Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com with a grain of salt. “He was a lot better today,” Manuel said about Reyes after Friday’s 1-0 loss to the Giants. “He took batting practice…

    Jul 17, 2010, 2:51 PM EDT

    Manny Ramirez and Russell Martin were forced to leave Friday’s game against the Cardinals due to injury, according to Ken Gurnick of MLB.com.

  13. Yogi Berra to miss Old-Timer's Day after minor fall at home

    Jul 17, 2010, 1:01 PM EDT

    Unfortunate news to pass along, as Hall of Famer and franchise icon Yogi Berra will miss this afternoon’s Old-Timer’s day at Yankee Stadium as the result of injuries sustained during a minor fall at his home in Montclair, N.J. on Friday evening, reports Wallace Matthews of ESPNNewYork.com. According to Dave Kaplan, director of the Yogi…

    Jul 17, 2010, 12:39 PM EDT

    The Phillies have activated Placido Polanco from the 15-day disabled list, according to Martin Frank of the Wilmington News Journal.

  15. Troy Tulowitzki could go out on rehab assignment next week

    Jul 17, 2010, 12:02 PM EDT

    It looks like the Rockies will be getting their star shortstop back very soon. Troy Tulowitzki, who has been on the disabled list since June 18 with a fractured right wrist, fielded ground balls and took some light batting practice before yesterday’s game against the Reds. Rockies manager Jim Tracy told Jim Armstrong of the…

  16. Strasburg overcomes rough first inning to blank Marlins over six

    Jul 17, 2010, 11:31 AM EDT

    I’m starting to wonder when a Stephen Strasburg start will no longer be a must-see event. We’re not quite there yet. Strasburg improved to 4-2 by tossing six shutout innings in a 4-0 win over the Marlins on Friday night. We’ve seen the young phenom struggle in the first inning a few times already and…

  17. Blister sends Kerry Wood to the disabled list

    Jul 17, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    Anthony Castrovince of MLB.com reports that the Indians have placed Kerry Wood on the disabled list with a blister on his right index finger. Wood was placed on the DL retroactive to July 12, so he’ll be eligible to return before the end of the month. Still, this won’t help his already minimal trade value.…

    Jul 17, 2010, 10:44 AM EDT

    An American League source tells Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com that the Mets are trying to trade Oliver Perez. In fact, they even approached the Royals about swapping Perez for Gil Meche. Meche hasn’t pitched since May 25 due to right shoulder bursitis while Perez hasn’t appeared in a game since May 31 due to patella…

  19. Nick Swisher's walkoff single wins it for the Boss

    Jul 17, 2010, 9:48 AM EDT

    You couldn’t have scripted it any better. There was our hero, Derek Jeter, with a chance to give the Yankees a walkoff win on the very same night that the team honored George Steinbrenner and Bob Sheppard. It would only be fitting, right? Apparently Dan Wheeler is more of an improv man, because he proceeded…

  20. Bengie Molina hits for cycle, creates rip in time-space continuum

    Jul 17, 2010, 8:56 AM EDT

    We have witnessed many unlikely events already this season — Stephen Strasburg striking out 14 in his major league debut, four no-hitters, two perfect games, one almost perfect game, the first-place San Diego Padres and the National League actually winning an All-Star Game — but I can say without hesitation that Bengie Molina’s cycle against…
