    David Hernandez

    A second opinion confirmed the initial diagnosis on David Hernandez’s elbow injury, so the Diamondbacks reliever will undergo season-ending Tommy John surgery.

  2. White Sox pick Matt Lindstrom as closer

    Matt Lindstrom

    Throughout spring training the widely held assumption was that the White Sox would use Nate Jones as their closer after trading Addison Reed to the Diamondbacks, but manager Robin Ventura avoided making any sort of official announcement and now we know why: Matt Lindstrom is going to be Chicago’s closer.

  3. David Hernandez likely needs Tommy John surgery

    David Hernandez

    The latest pitcher headed for Tommy John elbow surgery is Diamondbacks reliever David Hernandez, who was diagnosed with a torn ulnar collateral ligament. Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com reports that Hernandez will seek a second opinion, but surgery is likely and would cost him the entire season and perhaps some of 2015 as well. Hernandez posted…

    Mar 23, 2014, 2:26 AM EDT

    Australia Baseball Dodgers Diamondbacks

    Diamondbacks starter Trevor Cahill couldn’t overcome his control issues and the Dodgers took advantage in the second and final game played at the Sydney Cricket Grounds in Australia, winning 7-5. They fly back home having swept the D-Backs in the two-game overseas set. The Dodgers rallied for a two-out run in the first inning when…

  5. Diamondbacks name Addison Reed closer

    Mar 20, 2014, 10:15 AM EDT

    Chicago White Sox v Detroit Tigers

    Making official what was expected from the moment they acquired him from the White Sox this offseason, the Diamondbacks announced that Addison Reed will begin the season in the closer role. J.J. Putz also has previous closing experience and David Hernandez certainly has the raw stuff to pitch the ninth inning, but Reed saved 40…

    White Sox right-hander Nate Jones said at the end of February that he was completely over the glute strain that he suffered shortly after arriving at spring camp and he proved that on Saturday, delivering a scoreless inning in his 2014 Cactus League debut. Jones allowed a hit and issued a walk, but he also recorded…

  8. Diamondbacks close to signing Oliver Perez

    Mar 7, 2014, 4:17 PM EDT

    Seattle Mariners v New York Yankees

    Oliver Perez is one of the best unsigned free agents and Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com says that’s about to change, reporting that the left-handed reliever is close to a multi-year deal with the Diamondbacks. Arizona had already invested an awful lot of resources into the bullpen even before bringing in Perez, who went from being…

  10. Nate Jones says glute strain is “completely gone”

    Feb 26, 2014, 8:55 PM EDT

    Nate Jones entered camp as the favorite to take over as the White Sox closer. A mid-February glute strain threatened to complicate matters, but the right-hander now appears to be back on track. Dan Hayes of CSNChicago.com reports that Jones threw his third bullpen session of the spring on Wednesday and experienced no lingering discomfort…

    Via beat writer Dan Hayes at CSNChicago.com: GLENDALE, Ariz. — Nate Jones has been prescribed butt rest over bed rest. Per the training staff, the White Sox reliever has been restricted from any baseball activity for three or four days as he rests a gluteal strain that has bothered him for more than a week. Jones…

  12. White Sox sign Mitchell Boggs

    Feb 7, 2014, 12:45 PM EDT

    Mitchell Boggs

    Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com reports that the White Sox have signed Mitchell Boggs to a one-year, $1.1 million deal. Boggs was a mess last season for the Cardinals, posting a 11.05 ERA in 18 appearances before a demotion to Triple-A. He was traded to the Rockies in July and walked as many batters as he…

  13. Diamondbacks may look to trade J.J. Putz

    Jan 5, 2014, 10:51 AM EDT

    j.j. putz getty

    From Ken Rosenthal’s latest FOX Sports notebook: Don’t be surprised if the Diamondbacks trade right-hander J.J. Putz following their addition of former White Sox closer Addison Reed. Putz is signed for $7 million in 2014, and the D-backs most likely would be required to accept a comparable salary in return. Rosenthal suggests that Yankees outfielder…

  14. D-Backs reps willing to fly to Japan to meet with Masahiro Tanaka

    Nick Piecoro of AZ Central is reporting that Diamondbacks officials are willing to fly to Japan to court Masahiro Tanaka. Nothing has been scheduled yet but the interest is there. The Diamondbacks have had an active off-season, getting involved in two separate three-team trades. In the more recent of the two, they picked up Mark…

  15. Not so fast: Jose Valverde hasn’t signed with the Diamondbacks

    Dec 17, 2013, 10:05 AM EDT

    Jose Valverde

    UPDATE: Heyman now says Valverde has not signed and remains a free agent, adding “I miss-interpreted a text” that led him to believe it was a done deal. ========== Man, talk about getting the band back together. Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com reports that one day after trading for White Sox closer Addison Reed the Diamondbacks…

  16. White Sox decide closers exist to be cashed in

    Dec 16, 2013, 6:01 PM EDT

    Rick Hahn

    It’s a world gone topsy-turvy, I tell you. Billy Beane’s Athletics are going to spend about $10 million on closer Jim Johnson next year, even though their bullpen would seem to be plenty good without him. Meanwhile, the White Sox are playing at Oakland’s old game, trading their closers as soon as they can manufacture…

  17. Diamondbacks trade for White Sox closer Addison Reed

    Dec 16, 2013, 2:04 PM EDT

    Chicago White Sox v Detroit Tigers

    Nothing like a big, out-of-nowhere trade on an otherwise slow news day: Arizona has acquired closer Addison Reed from the White Sox in exchange for third base prospect Matt Davidson. Reed saved 40 games this year at age 24, throwing 71 innings with a 3.79 ERA and 72/23 K/BB ratio while holding opponents to a…

    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…

    Oct 31, 2013, 11:51 AM EDT

    Matt Lindstrom

    Matt Lindstrom will be back with the White Sox next season, as Chicago exercised its $4 million option on the reliever for 2014. Last offseason Lindstrom signed a one-year, $2.8 million deal with the 2014 team option or $500,000 buyout and then he threw 61 innings with a 3.12 ERA. His 46/23 K/BB ratio was…

  20. Jason Giambi walks off for Indians after Chris Perez blows lead

    Sep 24, 2013, 10:25 PM EDT

    Jason Giambi

    There’s a little magic left in Jason Giambi‘s bat after all. The 42-year-old former MVP, who entered with a .177 average in 181 at-bats this season, hit a walkoff homer off Addison Reed in the bottom of the ninth, giving the Indians a 5-4 win over the White Sox on Tuesday. It was the Indians’…

  21. Trailing by six runs in ninth, Tigers score six, win in 12

    Sep 21, 2013, 11:30 PM EDT

    Andy Dirks

    Trailing 6-0 in the bottom of the ninth, the Tigers rallied for six runs against the White Sox bullpen to send the game into extra innings. They pushed across a bases-loaded run for the walk-off win in the 12th inning, reducing their magic number over the Indians in the AL Central to two. Tigers starter…

    Addison Reed Asdrubal Cabrera Getty

    46 runs, 59 hits, and 20 pitchers used. Those are just some of the numbers from yesterday’s doubleheader between the Indians and White Sox at U.S. Cellular Field. The Indians ended up taking both games. They won a 19-10 slugfest in the opener, which featured outfielder Casper Wells tossing a hitless ninth inning for the…

  24. The White Sox will trade anyone but Sale… and Konerko?

    Jun 27, 2013, 6:50 PM EDT

    Adam Dunn, Paul Konerko

    That’s the word from CBSSports.com’s Jon Heyman. The White Sox are open to parting with younger regulars like Alex Rios, Alexei Ramirez, Dayan Viciedo and Gordon Beckham and they’d certainly be willing to move Adam Dunn and John Danks. But ace Chris Sale is unavailable, as is 10-and-5 guy Paul Konerko. Heyman doesn’t indicate whether…

    New York Yankees' Suzuki runs and watches the ball after he hit a walk-off home run to beat the Texas Rangers in their MLB American League game in New York

    Yankees 4, Rangers 3: Walkoff homer for Ichiro? Well shut my mouth. Wait, what? Well jeez, Brian, it’s just an expression. You don’t have to agree so emphatically and profanely. Angels 14, Tigers 8: Well that fifth inning got out of a hand in a hurry. Rick Porcello was beaten around for seven runs on…
