    Bobby Abreu

    Jim Salisbury of CSNPhilly.com reports that the Phillies informed Bobby Abreu he will not be on the Opening Day roster, ending his comeback attempt with the team he played for from 1998-2006. Abreu hit .263 with 10 walks for a nifty .429 on-base percentage in 16 games this spring, showing that his eye at the…

    Bobby Abreu

    Just the latest injury news from Philly: Bobby Abreu has a sore left (non-throwing) shoulder and will not take BP. Has played 9 innings of RF in last 11 days. Decision due Wed. — Matt Gelb (@magelb) March 24, 2014   A few weeks ago this would have seemed academic. But with other injuries, Abreu…

    New York Mets v Philadelphia Phillies

    Jim Salisbury of CSNPhilly.com reports the latest bad news from Clearwater. This about Darin Ruf: Ruf suffered a strained left oblique while taking batting practice before the Phillies’ split-squad game in Kissimmee on Thursday afternoon.

    ESPN’s Buster Olney tweeted earlier that Ichiro Suzuki appears to be the odd man out in the Yankees’ outfield and adds that the Phillies could use outfield help. The Yankees, of course, will have recent free agent additions Jacoby Ellsbury and Carlos Beltran in center and right, respectively, and Brett Gardner in left. Alfonso Soriano…

  7. Marlon Byrd on the Phillies: “we’re not an old team”

    Jan 26, 2014, 9:50 AM EDT

    marlon byrd getty

    With the signing of Marlon Byrd and Bobby Abreu — and because they’re counting on Jimmy Rollins, Ryan Howard and Chase Utley to be the motors of the offense once again — the “Phillies are old” jokes have been all over the place this winter.  My favorite two so far are (1) the one about…

    Tony Lastoria of IndiansBaseballInsider.com wrote Monday that the Indians “are very interested in signing” free agent Bobby Abreu, but FOX Sports’ Jon Morosi heard Tuesday that no offer had yet been made and now comes this followup report from Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer: Heard Tribe not all that interested in Bobby Abreu.…

  10. The Indians are interested in . . . Bobby Abreu?

    Jan 7, 2014, 6:06 AM EDT

    abreu getty

    In a world where people keep giving Jeff Francoeur paychecks I don’t suppose anything should surprise us. But this is still surprising: Indians are very interested in signing OF Bobby Abreu. They have been monitoring him in winter ball and talking about deal with him. — Tony Lastoria (@TonyIBI) January 7, 2014   Abreu has…

  11. Could Larry Bowa be on his way back to Philly?

    Sep 19, 2013, 2:30 PM EDT

    larry bowa

    Former Phillies infielder and manager Larry Bowa was at Citizens Bank Park for a visit yesterday. CSNPhilly’s Jim Salisbury notes that there is a chance he could be back on a more permanent basis: Bowa was a star player, a World Series-winning player, a coach and manager with the club. After all these years, he…

  12. Charlie Manuel questions whether Phillies can make run

    Jun 23, 2013, 11:20 PM EDT

    Charlie Manuel

    After wrapping up one of the most frustrating homestands in recent memory with an 8-0 drubbing at the hands of the New York Mets, Charlie Manuel said he questions his team’s ability to put it together for a second-half surge. Via CSN Philly’s John Gonzalez: But what if the team further decomposes during the road…

  13. Bobby Abreu wants to play in 2014

    Apr 16, 2013, 2:30 PM EDT

    Bobby Abreu

    Bobby Abreu spent all winter looking for a team but couldn’t find one. He’s not retiring, though. As Jerry Crasnick notes in his feature, Abreu wants to come back in 2014.  He plans on spending this season attending to business interests but will play winter ball in Venezuela and try to latch on to a…

  14. Alfonso Soriano as a Granderson replacement seems far-fetched

    Feb 24, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

    Curtis Granderson

    The silver lining about a 10-week injury to Curtis Granderson: Opening Day is still more than a month away. Losing Granderson’s power is far from an ideal way for the Yankees to start the spring, but it’s hardly a season-wrecker either. And while there might be some concern over whether Granderson will regain his power…

  15. Curtis Granderson has broken right forearm, out 10 weeks

    Feb 24, 2013, 3:17 PM EDT

    curtis granderson getty

    Brutal news this afternoon out of Yankees camp. According to Jack Curry of the YES Network, outfielder Curtis Granderson has been diagnosed with a fractured right forearm and will need 10 weeks of rest and rehab. Which means he probably won’t be ready for action until late April or early May. Granderson suffered the injury…

  16. Bobby Abreu, Freddy Garcia would love to play for the Marlins

    Jan 21, 2013, 11:03 AM EDT

    Bobby Abreu

    Back in the late 90s and early 2000s, Billy Beane identified slow, defensively-challenged sluggers to take advantage of an inefficiency in the player market. I’m assuming this news means that aging, almost-shot veterans view the Miami Marlins as the new inefficiency in the employer market: The Marlins are hearing from agents from several older veteran free agents…

  17. Bobby Abreu worked out for the Red Sox

    Dec 31, 2012, 4:54 PM EDT

    Bobby Abreu

    Bobby Abreu worked out for the Red Sox in Venezuela recently, according to Alex Speier of WEEI.com. Speier also notes that they had Abreu do some reps at first base, where the 38-year-old has never played even an inning in 17 big-league seasons. Mike Napoli‘s three-year, $39 million deal with the Red Sox remains unsigned,…

  18. Ryan Klesko was better than you remember

    Dec 19, 2012, 10:11 PM EDT

    Ryan Klesko outdoorsman

    The New York Post’s Ken Davidoff ran down every player on the Hall of Fame ballot in his column today, but this is all he had to say about Ryan Klesko: A name we remember from the ‘90s Braves run, but not for anything in particular he did. He was a solid outfielder. No. That’s…

  19. Dodgers lose, clinch postseason spot for Cardinals

    Oct 3, 2012, 1:51 AM EDT

    Mark Ellis, Pablo Sandoval

    The Dodgers’ season is over, and one can only hope manager Don Mattingly learned a couple of lessons tonight. The Giants won 4-3 in L.A. on Tuesday night to end the Dodgers’ playoff hopes and clinch the second wild card for the Cardinals. St. Louis could have clinched with a win earlier in the evening,…

    Sep 30, 2012, 4:27 PM EDT

    At the tender age of 21, Mike Trout became the youngest member of the 30 HR/30 SB club when he hit his 30th home run Sunday off the Rangers’ Yu Darvish. Trout’s 30-30 season is the 60th in major league history. 37 different players had combined on the previous 59. The youngest to do it…

  21. Behold: The slowest home run trot you’ll see this year

    Sep 29, 2012, 10:45 AM EDT

    Bobby Abreu Getty

    Bobby Abreu hit a long home run last night against the Rockies and he took his sweet time to get around the bases. 31.56 seconds, in fact. According to Larry Granillo of Baseball Prospectus, it was the longest non-injury home run trot since he began logging them for Tater Trot Tracker in 2010. David Ortiz…

  22. Bobby Abreu accepts Dodgers’ assignment to Triple-A

    Aug 9, 2012, 5:17 PM EDT

    Bobby Abreu

    Bobby Abreu is staying in the Dodgers organization after being designated for assignment last week, as Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com reports that the veteran outfielder cleared waivers and has accepted an assignment to Triple-A. Abreu was let go when the Dodgers acquired Shane Victorino from the Phillies to play left field and according to Crasnick…

  23. Angels haven’t talked contract extension with Zack Greinke

    Aug 2, 2012, 9:33 AM EDT

    Zack Greinke

    Milwaukee general manager Doug Melvin indicated that Zack Greinke wanted to test the open market as a free agent no matter what, which obviously played a big part in the Brewers trading him. However, now that he’s with the Angels there are already questions about whether Greinke might bypass free agency for a big-money deal.…

  24. Dodgers cut Bobby Abreu to make room for Shane Victorino

    Aug 1, 2012, 1:50 PM EDT

    Bobby Abreu

    Shane Victorino‘s arrival meant someone had to get the boot from the Dodgers’ roster today and they chose 38-year-old Bobby Abreu, designating him for assignment. Abreu signed with the Dodgers after being released by the Angels in late April and got off to a strong start while seeing regular action in left field, but he’s…

  25. Phillies send Shane Victorino to Dodgers for pair of pitchers

    Jul 31, 2012, 12:10 PM EDT

    Philadelphia Phillies v St. Louis Cardinals

    For the past week rumors have been swirling about the Phillies offering up Shane Victorino for bullpen help. They were reportedly turned down by the Reds for Logan Ondrusek, but today they found a taker and sent Victorino to the Dodgers for reliever Josh Lindblom, pitching prospect Ethan Martin, and a player to be named…
