    Jurickson Profar

    Jurickson Profar, who showed off his power with a home run in Sunday’s Futures Game, is sliding from shortstop to third base for the first time as a pro for Double-A Frisco tonight. It’s a bit curious; not only do the Rangers already have a top-flight third baseman in Adrian Beltre, but they also have…

    Josh Hamilton

    Josh Hamilton was far and away the AL’s best player for two months, but he’s definitely come back to the pack after hitting just .223 with four homers in June. He struck out 35 times last month, nearly matching his total of 39 times from April and May combined. That said, he still leads the…

    There’s still time to vote, but if it ended now, the AL All-Star team would look like so.

    Jose Bautista

    The latest American League ballot totals are in and the red-hot Jose Bautista has moved into third place in the outfielder voting, with Nelson Cruz dropping out of the lineup to fifth place. Bautista had the AL’s highest vote total last year, but his slow start guarantees he won’t duplicate that feat this year. Instead, it looks…

    Getty Yu Darvish

    The results were better in Yu Darvish‘s second major league start this afternoon against the Twins, but he was still pretty shaky. Darvish allowed two runs (one earned) over 5 2/3 innings before being pulled after 102 pitches. Not too bad, right? Well, he also allowed 14 baserunners (nine hits, four walks and a hit…

    Carlos Guillen, who signed a minor-league contract with the Mariners on February 1, announced his retirement today. Guillen had a remarkable career, transitioning from light-hitting shortstop to an impact bat who played all over the diamond, but injuries limited him to just 81, 68, and 28 mostly ineffective games during the past three seasons.
