  1. Yasiel Puig named NL Player of the Week, then moved into cleanup spot

    Jun 10, 2013, 6:06 PM EDT

    Yasiel Puig

    Yasiel Puig was much more of a cleanup hitter than a leadoff man in his first week of the majors, and now he’s one officially, as the Dodgers have inserted him behind Adrian Gonzalez in Monday’s lineup. The lineup was announced not long after Puig was named NL Player of the Week for smashing four…

  2. Brewers’ Jean Segura is first in four years to collect six hits

    May 29, 2013, 1:07 AM EDT

    Jean Segura

    Jean Segura tied a Brewers record Tuesday by going 6-for-7 in a 14-inning loss to the Twins.  All of Segura’s hits were singles. The last was a liner to right that would have been caught by a better defender than Ryan Doumit, but it was still hit pretty sharply. It made him the first player…

    Rays 10, Marlins 6: Two three-run homers for Kelly Johnson. He also singled, doubled and stole a base. He has 24 RBI in 21 games in May. Six straight losses for the Marlins despite what was, for them anyway, an offensive outburst. Tigers 6, Pirates 5: While it was his second win in a row…

    Adrian Gonzalez

    It was Adrian Gonzalez‘s birthday yesterday. Wasn’t necessarily a happy one: Adrian Gonzalez pulled from game at the start of the fifth inning. — Dylan Hernandez (@dylanohernandez) May 9, 2013 The issue: aggravated the neck strain he’s been dealing with. He’s now day-to-day. And if he and his teammates don’t get healthy and productive soon,…

    dee gordon getty

    As a response to Hanley Ramirez‘s unfortunate hamstring injury suffered last night, the Dodgers have recalled Dee Gordon from Triple-A Albuquerque. As Craig noted, the Dodgers are a mess right now with a seemingly neverending rash of injuries. Adrian Gonzalez sat out last night with a neck injury, and Mark Ellis hasn’t played in a…

    May 3, 2013, 9:25 PM EDT

    Adrian Gonzalez

    Adrian Gonzalez is not in tonight’s lineup for their match-up against the Giants tonight due to neck pain. Neck pain caused by an umpire, according to Ken Gurnick.

    Screen Shot 2013-05-02 at 8.12.24 AM

    Adrian Gonzalez hit a homer in the first inning of last night’s Dodgers-Rockies game. He had what should have been a homer in the third inning too, but Dexter Fowler decided one was enough: The game was long and blah and most of the crowd left before it was over, but that is one nice…

    Country Breakfast

    Royals 9, Phillies 8: Country. Breakfast. Billy Butler drives in seven via a grand slam and a three-run double. The loss is an especially disheartening one for Philly, as they were staked to a 4-0 lead early with their ace on the hill. Cole Hamels was rocked, though, and now stands at 0-2 with a 10.97 ERA…

    Canada v Mexico - World Baseball Classic - First Round Group D

    Canada defeated Mexico 10-3 in today’s World Baseball Classic Pool D match-up, but that wasn’t the most talked-about result from the game — it was the fracas that started in the ninth inning. With his team up six runs, Canada’s Chris Robinson led off the top-half of the inning with a bunt, which infuriated Mexico,…
