  10. Giancarlo Stanton credits the Home Run Derby for rediscovering his swing

    Jul 20, 2014, 6:55 PM EDT

    Giancarlo Stanton

    Hitters rarely credit the Home Run Derby when they perform well in the second half. Usually, they only blame it if they struggle. Giancarlo Stanton says the Derby helped him get locked in after slumping going into the All-Star break.

    Jul 19, 2014, 6:05 PM EDT

    Robinson Cano

    Last night’s Home Run Derby included just one left-handed hitter (Justin Morneau) among the eight contestants and tonight’s All-Star game will feature only two left-handed hitters (Chase Utley, Robinson Cano) among the 18 starters.

  16. All-Star game lineups, with Jeter and McCutchen leading off

    Yankees designated hitter Carlos Beltran has been scratched from tonight’s lineup against the Indians after a ball he hit during batting practice bounced up and struck him near the eye.

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

    Jul 9, 2014, 2:44 PM EDT

    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?”
