  1. 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…

    Johan Santana is feeling fine one day removed from throwing a career-high 134 pitches in last night’s historic no-hitter against the Cardinals, but he’s expected to get some extra rest before his next start. No official announcement from the team yet, but Bob Klapisch of the Bergen Record reports that the Mets will add rehabbing…

  3. Stephen Drew ready to go nine innings

    Jun 1, 2012, 1:03 AM EDT

    Stephen Drew

    Stephen Drew is getting closer to returning to the Arizona lineup. He’ll play nine innings in extended spring games both Friday and Saturday as he further steps up his rehab. Drew has been on the DL all season after suffering a broken ankle sliding into home plate last July 20. The Diamondbacks, though, have gotten…

  4. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    May 31, 2012, 5:45 AM EDT

    Seattle Mariners v Texas Rangers

    Mariners 21, Rangers 8: Look, we can point to Justin Smoak driving in a half dozen runs, Jesus Montero nearly hitting for the cycle or any number of other things as being the cause of this bloodbath. But the fact is, Derek Holland shaved his mustache the other day, and there is likely a causal…

    May 30, 2012, 7:25 PM EDT

    From Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic comes word that the Diamondbacks have placed Jason Kubel on the paternity leave list and called up 24-year-old outfielder A.J. Pollock to take his place. Kubel should be back within three days. The 30-year-old is off to a nice start this season, batting .297/.385/.461 with four home runs…

  6. A’s rookie Ryan Cook’s 23-inning scoreless streak snapped

    May 29, 2012, 10:47 AM EDT

    Oakland Athletics v Minnesota Twins

    Coming into yesterday’s game A’s rookie Ryan Cook hadn’t allowed a run in 23 innings this season, but his scoreless streak ended when the Twins got to the 25-year-old right-hander for two runs in an eighth-inning comeback that snapped the streak and handed him a loss. And naturally the runs scored on a bloop double…

  7. Chris Sale strikes out 15 in win over Rays

    May 28, 2012, 5:58 PM EDT

    Chris Sale

    Making his first ever start in Florida, Lakeland native Chris Sale struck out 15 batters while limiting the Rays to one run and three hits in 7 1/3 innings in the White Sox’s 2-1 victory Monday. An Adam Dunn homer, his 16th of the year, was responsible for both White Sox runs. Sale, a first-round…

    aramis ramirez ap

    From Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel comes word that Brewers third baseman Aramis Ramirez is out of the lineup Sunday for a second straight game due to a left elbow contusion.

    Diamondbacks catcher Miguel Montero hasn’t appeared in a game in five days because of a left groin strain. And that’s not ready to change. According to Jack Magruder of FOX Sports Southwest, manager Kirk Gibson told reporters that Montero won’t start a game until Monday, at the earliest, due to ongoing groin discomfort. Konrad Schmidt started…

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

    May 24, 2012, 8:28 AM EDT

    Kansas City Royals v New York Yankees

    Yankees 8, Royals 3: Alex Rodriguez would like the New York sporting press to write more career obituaries for him. It seems to suit him nicely (2 for 4, 2 HR, 3 RBI). Reds 2, Braves 1: Todd Frazier hit a walkoff homer. It came off  Cristhian Martinez because, as everyone knows, Fredi Gonzalez would be drummed…

  12. Brewers pick up Cody Ransom on waivers from Arizona

    May 23, 2012, 6:23 PM EDT

    cody ransom getty

    It didn’t figure that Cody Ransom would have to go hunting for work after being designated for assignment and waived by the Diamondbacks; the Brewers claimed him off waivers today. Fellow infielder Edwin Maysonet was sent down to open up a spot on Milwaukee’s roster. Ransom, a 36-year-old journeyman, was a nice surprise for Arizona,…

    daniel hudson reuters

    Great news this evening out of the desert. Jack Magruder of FOX Sports Arizona reports that Diamondbacks right-hander Daniel Hudson has been cleared to return to the major leagues and will start Sunday’s series finale against the Brewers. Hudson has been sidelined since April 19 — just over a month — because of an impingement…

  14. Despite .922 OPS, Arizona’s Cody Ransom gets the boot

    May 21, 2012, 7:08 PM EDT

    Cody Ransom

    In a surprising move, the Diamondbacks designated infielder Cody Ransom for assignment on Monday and replaced him with youngster Josh Bell. Ransom, 36, is pretty much the ultimate journeyman infielder, but he did a great job at the plate in his time for Arizona, hitting .269/.345/.577 with four homers and 13 RBI in 52 at-bats.…

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

    May 21, 2012, 5:30 AM EDT

    Max Scherzer

    If I missed something important in one of these it’s because I was less plugged-in than usual yesterday. My daughter Mookie had her dance recital. Both ballet and jazz, which required me to sit through two (2)  separate shows. I kid you not: four hours of sitting in an auditorium to watch eight minutes of…

  16. Diamondbacks activate Chris Young from disabled list

    May 18, 2012, 3:49 PM EDT

    chris young getty

    Chris Young is back from the disabled list after the Diamondbacks center fielder missed the past 28 games with a partially torn shoulder ligament. To make room for his return Arizona optioned rookie A.J. Pollock back to Triple-A after he hit just .229 with one homer and a .611 OPS in 20 games filling in…

  17. And That Happened: Thursday’s scores and highlights

    May 18, 2012, 5:58 AM EDT

    Miami Marlins v Atlanta Braves

    Braves 7, Marlins 0: Brandon Beachy: the best pitcher you haven’t heard of. He shuts out the Marlins on five hits and ups his record to 5-1 with a 1.33 ERA. Giants 7, Cardinals 5: Bad Cardinal defense and a little more offense than usual gave the Giants some runs on a day when Matt…

  18. Chris Young doubles twice on rehab assignment, nears return to Diamondbacks

    May 16, 2012, 10:15 AM EDT

    chris young getty

    Diamondbacks center fielder Chris Young is close to coming off the disabled list after doubling twice in a minor-league rehab game yesterday at Single-A. It was Young’s second rehab outing and he’s expected to play one more game for Visalia before moving his assignment to Triple-A. From there a return to the Diamondbacks could happen…

  19. Chad Billingsley needs to have a good sinker tonight

    May 15, 2012, 7:03 PM EDT

    Chad Billingsley

    That’s because Andre Ethier is making his first career start in center field for the Dodgers against the Diamondbacks and southpaw Wade Miley. Manager Don Mattingly indicated last night that Ethier would make a limited number of starts in center with Matt Kemp out. Tony Gwynn Jr. will play there against righties, but shifting Ethier…

  20. An eye for an eye and the whole world goes blind

    May 15, 2012, 9:12 AM EDT

    BBN Diamondbacks Dodgers Baseball

    I think Yogi Berra said that. No time to check. Anyway, we had guys throwing at each other last night in Los Angeles. No one hit anyone, however. And nothing was really settled either, because someone apparently lost count of who hit who when and apparently some slights and vendettas never die. Clayton Kershaw threw…

  21. Mark Reynolds injures oblique during pregame BP, lands on the 15-day disabled list

    May 12, 2012, 6:48 PM EDT

    reynolds reuters

    Orioles third baseman (and part-time first baseman and designated hitter) Mark Reynolds is having a nightmarish 2012. And it just got a little worse. According to Britt Ghiroli of MLB.com, the struggling 28-year-old suffered an oblique injury while making a throw during batting practice Saturday and has been placed on the 15-day disabled list for…

  22. Another day, another lineup spot for Bryce Harper

    May 10, 2012, 4:16 PM EDT

    Washington Nationals v Los Angeles Dodgers

    Bryce Harper is on the move in the Nationals’ batting order again. Harper debuted as a No. 7 hitter, moved to the No. 3 spot after four games, shifted to the No. 2 spot for the past two games following Ryan Zimmerman‘s return, and is now batting No. 5 tonight. That makes four different lineup…

  23. Daniel Hudson’s shoulder “felt good” after bullpen session

    May 9, 2012, 3:49 PM EDT

    Daniel Hudson

    Daniel Hudson took the mound yesterday for the first time since being placed on the disabled list with a shoulder injury, throwing a 30-pitch bullpen session. Hudson, who’s been on the DL since April 21, told Tyler Emerick of MLB.com that he “felt good” and “wanted to keep going.” He’ll likely need to complete a…

  24. Diamondbacks unsure on Vladimir Guerrero after tryout

    May 2, 2012, 8:06 PM EDT

    vladimir guerrero getty

    The Diamondbacks held a workout for free agent Vladimir Guerrero on Monday in the Dominican. It’s Tuesday night and they haven’t announced a deal, so the safe guess is Arizona isn’t interested. And while GM Kevin Towers didn’t completely rule the whole thing out Wednesday in a conversation with the Arizona Republic‘s Nick Piecoro, he did…

    Justin Upton was watching baseball on Sunday night, took to Twitter and unloaded some on ESPN’s broadcast: Amazing that my brother has made two good baseball plays tonight and the #ESPN so called analysts have bashed him for both of them. —Justin Upton (@JUS10UP10) April 30, 2012 I’m laughing to myself that nobody else notices…
