    As first reported by Joel Sherman of the New York Post, the Cubs have avoided salary arbitration with outfielder Justin Ruggiano by reaching a one-year, $2 million contract for 2014.

    Justin Ruggiano

    Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports that the Marlins have traded outfielder Justin Ruggiano to the Cubs for outfielder Brian Bogusevic. Ruggiano was pushed into extended action for the Marlins this year and struggled, hitting just .222 with a .694 OPS in 128 games, but if limited to a part-time role he’s capable of…

    The Pirates pulled another trick out of the bag tonight, hitting back-to-back-to-back home runs to erase a 3-0 deficit against Cubs starter Jake Arrieta.

    Astros manager Brad Mills told Brian McTaggart of MLB.com that outfielder Jordan Schafer is out until Wednesday because of a strained leg muscle.

    Boston Red Sox v Detroit Tigers

    There were only 14 games yesterday. On a Sunday. Because the A’s and Mariners didn’t play thanks to the Japan Series. Look, I don’t care if you want to start the season in Japan, but there should be a federal law against anything less than a full slate of games on a Sunday.  Anyway: Tigers…

  7. Running down the rosters: Houston Astros

    Feb 9, 2012, 12:30 AM EDT

    Wandy Rodriguez

    The 2012 Astros are pretty sure bets to lose 100 games, with the big question being whether they’ll top last year’s mark of 106 losses. That achievement will be tied to their ability to move the contracts of Wandy Rodriguez, Brett Myers and Carlos Lee. Ideally, they’d be able to sell off at least the…
