    Against all odds, the Orioles are poised to clinch their first AL East title in seventeen years.

  2. Kirk Gibson is (still) sticking with Addison Reed as the Diamondbacks’ closer

    Jul 9, 2014, 2:44 PM EST

    Addison Reed Diamondbacks

    At this point I like to imagine that Diamondbacks beat reporter Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic has the same routine so ingrained into his life that even on off days he wakes up, cooks a nice, sensible breakfast, and asks no one in particular “is Addison Reed still the closer?”

  3. What if Jose Abreu had chosen the Red Sox over the White Sox?

    Jose Abreu has enjoyed his first look at Fenway Park, the historic venue that very nearly was his home.

    The trade deadline is rapidly approaching and Rick Hahn already has his poker face on.

  5. Diamondbacks sticking with Addison Reed as their closer despite all the homers

    Jun 9, 2014, 10:15 AM EST

    Addison Reed Diamondbacks

    Arizona invested a ton of money and resources into building a strong, deep bullpen this season and yet Addison Reed has a 4.13 ERA with an astounding eight home runs allowed in 28 innings as the closer.

  6. Settling the Score: Friday’s results

    They needed extra innings to do it, but the Diamondbacks snapped a six-game losing streak last night and finally got a win against the Dodgers.

  7. David Hernandez needs Tommy John surgery

    Mar 31, 2014, 5:33 PM EST

    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.

  8. White Sox pick Matt Lindstrom as closer

    Mar 31, 2014, 2:44 PM EST

    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.

  9. David Hernandez likely needs Tommy John surgery

    Mar 28, 2014, 11:45 AM EST

    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…

  10. Dodgers’ bullpen nearly coughed up the lead in 7-5 victory over the D-Backs

    Mar 23, 2014, 2:26 AM EST

    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…

  11. Diamondbacks name Addison Reed closer

    Mar 20, 2014, 10:15 AM EST

    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…

    nate jones getty

    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…

  14. Diamondbacks close to signing Oliver Perez

    Mar 7, 2014, 4:17 PM EST

    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…

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

    Feb 26, 2014, 8:55 PM EST

    nate jones getty

    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…

  18. White Sox sign Mitchell Boggs

    Feb 7, 2014, 12:45 PM EST

    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…

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

    Jan 5, 2014, 10:51 AM EST

    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…

  20. 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…

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

    Dec 17, 2013, 10:05 AM EST

    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…

  22. White Sox decide closers exist to be cashed in

    Dec 16, 2013, 6:01 PM EST

    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…

  23. Diamondbacks trade for White Sox closer Addison Reed

    Dec 16, 2013, 2:04 PM EST

    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…
