Alex White

  1. John Ely needs Tommy John surgery

    Apr 15, 2013, 10:47 AM EDT

    Houston Astros v Pittsburgh Pirates

    Just a week after losing right-hander Alex White to Tommy John elbow surgery the Astros lost another potential starter, right-hander John Ely, to the same surgery. Ely, who was acquired from the Dodgers in a trade back in December, began the season at Triple-A after failing to win a rotation spot during spring training. He…

  2. Alex White needs Tommy John surgery

    Alex White

    As feared earlier this week, Astros right-hander Alex White needs Tommy John elbow surgery and will miss the entire season. White was set to be the Astros’ fourth starter before complaining of elbow soreness late in spring training, so this is a very tough break for a pitcher whose stock had already dipped quite a…

  3. Alex White likely needs Tommy John surgery

    Alex White

    Alex White was set to be the Astros’ fourth starter, but he injured his elbow late in spring training and now the 24-year-old former first-round pick may be headed for surgery. Brian T. Smith of the Houston Chronicle reports that nothing official has been decided yet, but White is “starting to accept the idea of…

  4. Jordan Lyles is probably losing his rotation spot

    Mar 8, 2013, 2:41 PM EDT

    Jordan Lyles

    Jordan Lyles threw a complete-game shutout against the Brewers in his final outing last season to finish 5-12 with a 5.09 ERA. Now, that doesn’t sound very impressive, but he was just 21 years old and that he was an Astro explains the win-loss record. He entered camp this year penciled in as Houston’s No.…

  5. Rockies not interested in moving Michael Cuddyer

    Coming off a franchise-worst 64-98 record, things aren’t looking all that promising for the Rockies in 2013, even with a healthy Troy Tulowitzki. One would think they would be open to moving certain pieces that could net them some pitching or prospects, but Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports hears that they are content to…

  6. Rockies acquire reliever Wilton Lopez from Astros

    Dec 4, 2012, 11:14 PM EDT

    Wilton Lopez

    As the Denver Post’s Troy Renck first reported, the Rockies have acquired reliever Wilton Lopez from the Astros for right-handers Alex White and Alex Gillingham. Lopez was nearly traded to the Phillies for right-hander Tyler Cloyd and catcher Sebastian Valle last week, but the deal fell apart, reportedly because the Phillies’ physical brought up red flags.…

  7. Ubaldo Jimenez’s season is over

    Sep 26, 2012, 6:46 PM EDT

    Ubaldo Jimenez

    Mercifully so. Ubaldo Jimenez, loser of his last six decisions and 17 games overall, won’t pitch again this season because of a sprained ankle. Jimenez finishes up 9-17 with a 5.55 ERA and a 143/95 K/BB ratio in 176 2/3 innings. He’s 13-21 with a 5.43 ERA in 242 innings since the Indians traded arguably…

  8. And That Happened: Monday’s scores and highlights

    Sep 11, 2012, 6:22 AM EDT

    A.J. Pierzynski, Alex Rios

    White Sox 6, Tigers 1: The offense continues to snooze. And the Tigers are getting so little respect that some clever wags out there are calling them the “Kittens.” That’s just sad, dude. Alex Rios and Gordon Beckham did most of the damage for the Sox. Phillies 3, Marlins 1: Fifth straight for Philly, as…

  9. Still experimenting, Rockies add Double-A starter to rotation

    Jun 27, 2012, 12:00 AM EDT

    Edwar Cabrera - Bowman

    As chaotic as things are with the Rockies pitching staff right now, is this really the time to be adding a top prospect from Double-A? GM Dan O’Dowd obviously thinks so. The club called up Edwar Cabrera today and announced that he’d make his major league debut in starting Wednesday’s game. He’ll be taking the…

  10. Rockies go radical: Four-man rotation, 75-pitch limit

    Jun 19, 2012, 6:01 PM EDT

    Jim Tracy

    If there was ever a team that should be trying something different, it’s the 2012 Rockies with their 25-40 record and their 6.28 starter’s ERA. Still, this doesn’t seem like a great idea. Manager Jim Tracy revealed this afternoon that he plans to go with a four-man rotation and limit all of his starters to…

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

    Jun 4, 2012, 5:40 AM EDT

    New York Yankees v Detroit Tigers

    Yankees 5, Tigers 1: If I were to tell you that one of this game’s starting pitchers — Justin Verlander or Phil Hughes — was going to toss a complete game, I’m guessing none of you would have guessed it would be Hughes.  But that he did, allowing one run on four hits. Verlander loses…

  12. Former top Rockies prospects find the road back

    Apr 17, 2012, 11:00 PM EDT

    Tyler Matzek

    In 2010, Baseball America rated Rockies left-handers Tyler Matzek and Christian Friedrich the 23rd and 33rd best prospects in the game, respectively. They were eighth and 12th among pitchers. However, the stock of both had plummeted in the two years since, even though neither suffered a major injury. Neither came close to sniffing the top…

  13. Springtime Storylines: Will the Cleveland Indians build on last season or take a step backward?

    Cleveland Indians' catcher Carlos Santana waits for his turn at bat during their MLB spring training baseball game against the Arizona Diamondbacks in Scottsdale

    Between now and Opening Day, HardballTalk will take a look at each of baseball’s 30 teams, asking the key questions, the not-so-key questions, and generally breaking down their chances for the 2012 season. Up next: Cleveland Indians. The Big Question: Will the Cleveland Indians build on last season or take a step backward? Cleveland got…

  14. Jamie Moyer helps his comeback cause with two strong innings

    Mar 7, 2012, 9:32 PM EDT

    Colorado Rockies Jamie Moyer

    Jamie Moyer helped himself nicely in his attempt to make the Colorado Rockies rotation out of spring training on Wednesday, breezing through two scoreless innings. Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports that his fastball topped out at 82 mph and that he kept the Giants hitters off-balance, allowing just one hit and throwing only…

  15. Alex White may be charged with “extreme DUI”

    Mar 6, 2012, 9:18 AM EDT

    alex white ap

    When Rockies starter Alex White was arrested for DUI over the weekend, he told officers that he only had “two drinks.”  Everyone who gets pulled over for DUI says that, of course, but White’s lie, it appears, was particularly egregious: A breath test administered after White was pulled over Saturday night measured his blood-alcohol content…

  16. Rockies’ Alex White arrested for DUI in Arizona

    Mar 4, 2012, 3:05 PM EDT

    alex white ap

    Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports that Rockies starter Alex White was arrested Saturday night near the team’s spring training complex in Arizona for driving under the influence of alcohol. White claims that he only had two drinks before the arrest, but he failed both a field sobriety test and a breathalyzer. He was…
