  1. Ranking the bullpens: 2014 edition

    Feb 7, 2014, 9:00 AM EDT

    Detroit Tigers v Atlanta Braves

    We tried this with the rotations the other day. Once again, I’ll be dipping into my 2014 projections here to rank the bullpens. To come up with the following bullpen ERAs, I simply combined each team’s seven highest-IP relievers, according to my projections. AL Royals – 2.93 Red Sox – 3.14 Athletics – 3.16 Rangers…

  2. Mark Mulder wants to attempt a comeback

    Dec 10, 2013, 8:37 PM EDT

    mark mulder getty

    Mark Mulder hasn’t pitched in a major league game since 2008 and chronic left shoulder issues robbed him of his ability to effectively retire batters by early 2006, but the veteran southpaw has been working on mechanical changes to his delivery between rounds of golf and he wants to sign with a team this winter…

    Jul 31, 2013, 2:09 PM EDT

    Ian Kennedy

    2:09 p.m. EDT: The Padres are getting Kennedy in return for Thatcher, right-hander Matt Stiles and their post-second round competitive balance pick in the 2014 draft, according to MLB.com’s Corey Brock. 1:52 p.m. EDT update: The Arizona Republic’s Nick Piecoro reports that San Diego and Arizona are close to an agreement. The Diamondbacks would get…

  4. Kyle Lohse will not wait until after the draft to sign

    Mar 21, 2013, 11:03 AM EDT

    lohse getty

    There is a sense out there that the reason why Kyle Lohse hasn’t found a job yet is because of the draft pick compensation hanging around his neck. In keeping with that, there are some who speculate that Lohse may wait until after the June draft to sign, thereby eliminating that compensation and giving him…

  5. Ten Things I learned from my trip to Spring Training

    Mar 11, 2013, 4:30 PM EDT

    Sunrise Cactus

    Today is my first day back at work in the fortified compound and I’m just now starting to feel back in the swing of things. It’s a good time, then, to look back at my ten days in the desert and talk about some of the things that stuck out, for better, for worse, for…

    Brian Wilson Getty

    Here’s the official list of Friday’s non-tenders: American League Angels: none Athletics: OF Jermaine Mitchell Mitchell had already been designated for assignment. He had a breakthrough 2011 in Triple-A, hitting .302/.401/.453, but he regressed to .252/.345/.386 for Sacramento last season.

  7. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    Aug 22, 2012, 6:13 AM EDT

    Nationals' Strasburg pitches in the rain during the second inning of their MLB game against Braves in Washington

    Nationals 4, Braves 1: I have been arguing against a Stephen Strasburg shutdown for a while now, but allow me to say that if those dudes are really gonna do that, I wish they would have done it before last night. Strasburg struck out ten in six innings, allowing a single run and winning his…

  8. Desmond Jennings begins rehab assignment for knee injury

    Jun 1, 2012, 1:20 PM EDT

    Desmond Jennings Reuters

    Out since May 11 with a sprained left knee, Desmond Jennings began a minor-league rehab assignment yesterday at Single-A by going 1-for-3 with a double. He also tested his knee by playing left field and is expected to move his rehab stint to Triple-A, with Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reporting that Jennings…

  9. Brandon Inge joins A’s, will start tonight at third base

    Apr 30, 2012, 2:44 PM EDT

    Brandon Inge

    UPDATE: As expected, Inge finalized his deal and will be the A’s starting third baseman tonight. Luke Hughes was designated for assignment to make room on the roster after his reign as Oakland’s starting third baseman lasted a week. ========== Brandon Inge‘s deal with the A’s isn’t quite official yet, but Susan Slusser of the…

  11. Running down the rosters: Chicago Cubs

    Feb 14, 2012, 6:13 PM EDT

    Starlin Castro, Darwin Barney, Marlon Byrd

    Forget about 2012 and probably 2013 as well; the Cubs are thinking long-term after luring Theo Epstein from Boston as their new showrunner. This year’s club won’t necessarily be one of the worst in baseball — the pitching depth could help it avoid that fate — but there’s also little in the way of upside…

  12. Braves re-sign Peter Moylan to minor-league contract

    Jan 17, 2012, 9:00 PM EDT

    moylan face getty

    The Braves non-tendered right-hander Peter Moylan last month, but David O’Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that the two sides have agreed to a minor league contract which includes an invitation to spring training. Moylan would make a $1 million prorated salary for time spent in the majors and could earn more with performance-based incentives.…

  14. UPDATE: Marlins trade Cameron Maybin to Padres for two relievers

    Nov 13, 2010, 4:12 PM EDT

    maybin

    UPDATE: Well, the Marlins may have the bullpen help they were looking for. According to Krasovic, the Marlins will acquire right-handers Ryan Webb and Edward Mujica from the Padres in exchange for Maybin. Webb, who turns 25 in February, posted a 2.90 ERA and 44/19 K/BB ratio over 59 innings with the Padres this past…

  16. Joe Torre, Bud Black conspire to ruin John Lindsey's major league debut

    Sep 9, 2010, 8:47 AM EDT

    Recall from Tuesday that John Lindsey was finally called up by the Dodgers after 15 years in the minor leagues. Last night he was poised to make his big league debut against the Padres, but the fates — and a little over-managing — ruined it. Lindsey didn’t start, but he was sent to pinch hit…

  17. Yunel Escobar-Alex Gonzalez swap a definite win for Toronto

    Jul 14, 2010, 7:05 PM EDT

    Yunel Escobar for Alex Gonzalez certainly isn’t a deal anyone saw coming a year or two ago. Sure, the Braves had always had something of a love-hate relationship with their Cuban shortstop, but they had no shortage of opportunities to move him for promising players. To trade him now for an older, less-rangy shortstop having…

  18. Projecting the 2010 NL All-Star team

    Jun 22, 2010, 6:00 PM EDT

    With voting close at several positions, there aren’t as many sure bets for the NL All-Star team as the AL squad. That’ll make things a bit more challenging today. Still, I’m going to give projecting the 21 hitters and 13 pitchers a try. Catcher Locks: none Possibilities: Yadier Molina, Brian McCann, Miguel Olivo, Rod Barajas,…

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

    May 5, 2010, 5:42 AM EDT

    Twins 4, Tigers 3: Nick Blackburn gave up 11 hits in a complete game. This had me thinking about the concept of “scattering” hits last night. I mean, I wanted to say that Blackburn scattered 11 hits over nine innings, but 11 seemed like too many. I was thinking that scattering applies to eight hits…

  21. "Shin-Soo Choo has a chance to be the best Pacific Rim player ever"

    Apr 30, 2010, 9:17 AM EDT

    Those are bold words given that Ichiro Suzuki still walks the Earth and gets 200 hits a year, but when you realize that it’s Choo’s agent Scott Boras saying it, all becomes clear. That aside, Tim Brown’s profile on Choo in which that quote appears is a great read about the baseball’s least-known superstar.  For…
