    Cliff Lee is on track to return to the Phillies’ starting rotation on July 21. The veteran left-hander has been out since the middle of May because of a muscle strain in his pitching elbow but could be an attractive name at this year’s trade deadline.

    Corey Kluber

    It’s Corey Kluber’s world. We’re all just living in it. We had no idea we were, though, because most of us don’t pay a heck of a lot of attention to Corey Kluber. Like, how are we supposed to know it’s his world anyway? What are we, psychic? Put up a sign.

    The Indians, A’s and Jays are surging. The Yankees, Rays and Braves are reeling. The Padres won a game despite getting only one hit. As Earl Weaver once said: Baseball: we do this every day, lady.

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

    May 21, 2014, 6:54 AM EDT

    Adam Wainwright

    On HBT Daily yesterday I said Johnny Cueto would give up more than two runs in a game before Masahiro Tanaka got his first loss. Both happened yesterday, but I’m pretty sure the Nats got their third run off Cueto before the Yankees-Cubs game ended, so I’m gonna claim victory.

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

    Apr 7, 2014, 6:02 AM EDT

    Kemp Ramirez

    Matt Kemp and Hanley Ramirez each went yard twice. And I contemplate the return of the game-winning RBI stat.

  22. The Pirates have made velocity an organizational focus

    Mar 30, 2014, 8:15 PM EDT

    Gerrit Cole

    Travis Sawchik of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review wrote an intriguing column about the rise in fastball velocity across Major League Baseball. In 2008, the average fastball in the Majors registered at 90.9 MPH; in 2013, it was 92 MPH. A change of 1.1 MPH over a six-year period may seem small, but when hundreds of thousands of fastballs…
