    When a partially torn shoulder labrum finally sent Luke Scott to the disabled list last week there was speculation that he might end up opting for season-ending surgery, but Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun reports that he “seems to be progressing” and “surgery does not seem necessary at this point.” Scott struggled mightily while…

    Luke Scott has had a sore shoulder for a while. He hurt it in spring training, actually, and it has come to bother him a lot more in recent weeks.  The Orioles sent him for an MRI, and the results are back:  he has a partial tear of his labrum. The thinking at this point is that…

    May 4, 2011, 12:00 PM EST

    Scott_Luke

    That sound you hear is Luke Scott‘s agent and most of the Orioles’ front office simultaneously slapping their hands to their foreheads in exasperation as they read Sam Mellinger’s column in today’s Kansas City Star. You know, the one in which Luke Scott continues to be a birther despite the release of Obama’s birth certificate:…

    Luke Scott deer

    Luke Scott caused a stir back in December when, during an interview with Dave Brown of Yahoo!’s Big League Stew, his belief that President Obama wasn’t born in America came out into the open.  This piqued the interest of Amy K. Nelson of ESPN, who spent some time with Orioles’ outfielder Luke Scott this spring. Her…

    The Orioles are going to be without one of their main sluggers for the next couple of days. Or maybe longer.

    Feb 10, 2011, 5:17 PM EST

    Luke Scott deer

    Luke Scott filed an arbitration request for $6.85 million while the Orioles countered at $5.7 million, and this afternoon the two sides avoided a hearing by agreeing to a one-year, $6.4 million deal. That figure is $125,000 above the midpoint and Scott gets a $2.35 million raise after hitting .284 with 27 homers and a…

  10. The Orioles issue a statement about Luke Scott being a wacko birther

    Dec 8, 2010, 4:31 PM EST

    Obama Birth Certificate

    The Baltimore Orioles issued a statement this afternoon in response to the multimedia freakout that has gone down in the wake of Luke Scott saying that President Obama wasn’t born in the United States: “Luke Scott’s comments do not reflect the opinion of the Baltimore Orioles organization. The fact is that Barack Obama is our…

  11. Luke Scott: “Obama does not represent America … he was not born here”

    Dec 8, 2010, 9:26 AM EST

    Luke Scott deer

    Yesterday Orioles’ DH Luke Scott came into the media room here at the Winter Meetings. No real reason, it seemed. He was with Buck Showalter when Showalter was doing his manager availability, and was kind of standing around. I snapped this picture of him because I thought it was pretty sweet that he was walking…

    Aug 18, 2010, 1:46 PM EST

    Jon Paul Morosi of FOXSports.com reported yesterday that the Orioles won’t be trading Luke Scott after pulling him back off waivers, and now Dan Connolly and Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun report that the same is true for Ty Wigginton.

  13. Orioles pull back Luke Scott after he's claimed on waivers

    Aug 16, 2010, 4:19 PM EST

    Luke Scott is quietly having a huge season in Baltimore, hitting .293/.357/.577 with 22 homers and 24 doubles in 92 games to rank eighth among AL hitters with a .934 OPS. He’d obviously make a nice stretch-run pickup for contenders in need of a big bat and the Orioles placed him on waivers to set…

  14. The downside of hustle: Luke Scott injured on home run trot

    Jul 1, 2010, 11:43 AM EST

    Luke Scott may be headed to the disabled list after injuring his hamstring last night during his home run trot. Scott took Cedrick Bowers deep to left-center field in the seventh inning, but ran hard out of the box before knowing it was gone and pulled up lame after rounding first base. MLB.com has the…

  15. Luke Scott doesn't like MLB's gun ban

    Feb 27, 2010, 9:33 AM EST

    Luke Scott tells Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun that just because he abides by MLB’s policy doesn’t mean he has to like it: “I don’t think that everyone else should be pay for the mistakes of a few,” said Scott, one of baseball’s most vocal gun rights proponents. “There is a good reason behind…

  16. The Royals remain deluded in their hopes for Luke Hochevar

    Sep 11, 2012, 12:50 AM EST

    Luke Hochevar

    Luke Hochevar has made $3.1 million while going 7-13 with a 5.36 ERA in 28 starts this season. One would think that increasing salary combined with his worst performance since 2009 would finally result in his departure at season’s end. However, GM Dayton Moore said the Royals have no intention of non-tendering Hochevar this winter.…

  18. The Rays will use a DH rotation

    Nov 18, 2013, 12:30 PM EST

    Rays logo

    Edgar Martinez’s and David Ortiz‘s Hall of Fame cases often get bogged down in “they’re only part-time players” and “anyone can just DH” arglebargle. But when you look around you realize that there are fewer and fewer guys who can make the full-time DH thing work. Indeed, there are 15 teams who use a DH…

    This year’s annual free agents column has expanded to a top 150, though I’m writing up just the top 55 (it was going to be 50, but I couldn’t help myself). The rest are presented in a list. Not included are players whose contract options are sure to be exercised. Players are ranked based not…

  20. So, what’s the market for Billy Butler anyway?

    Oct 22, 2013, 7:10 PM EST

    Josh Phegley, Jerry Meals, Billy Butler

    This kind of doubles as a “what’s the market for Kendrys Morales?” post, too. Anyway, the Royals have let it be known that Billy Butler is available, according to ESPN’s Buster Olney. Had they done this a year ago, they would have been in line for a nice return. Now? Probably not so much. Butler…

    Rays logo

    Lana Berry made a great, albeit depressing observation during the Rays-Angels game last night: holy s***. Rays played Josh Lueke, Delmon Young, Luke Scott, and Yunel Escobar in the same game. they are really just…going for it, huh? And by “going for it” she means the good citizen award. Lueke, as most know by now,…

  23. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Jul 22, 2013, 5:12 AM EST

    Philadelphia Phillies v New York Mets

    Mets 5, Phillies 0: It’s getting close to the time for us to break out all of that “we are all witnesses” kind of hyperbole for Matt Harvey. Not that it’s really hyperbole. He’s simply toying with hitters at this point, throwing ungodly stuff in just about every count. Seven innings, three hits, ten strikeouts,…

  24. Rays keep rolling behind red-hot Chris Archer

    The Rays are by far the hottest team in baseball. With young right-hander Chris Archer yielding only one run over seven innings and both Evan Longoria and Luke Scott providing home runs, Tampa Bay won its sixth straight game on Sunday afternoon in a sweep of the Blue Jays at Toronto’s Rogers Centre. Archer has…

    Seattle Mariners v Houston Astros

    Astros outfielder Brandon Barnes doubled in the bottom of the eighth for his fourth hit in as many at-bats to complete the cycle. He homered in the second, tripled in the fourth, singled in the sixth, leaving himself a double short with one at-bat to go. The eighth-inning double also set up a rally as…
