  1. Dodgers considering bowing out of Zack Greinke sweepstakes

    Dec 6, 2012, 6:27 PM EDT

    Zack Greinke

    When the Winter Meetings began, many considered the deep-pocketed Dodgers the heavy favorites to land free agent right-hander Zack Greinke. But now that teams, players and agents have departed Nashville, his future isn’t so clear. According to FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal, Greinke talks have reached a “critical stage” and the Dodgers are now considering bowing…

  2. Zack Greinke, highest paid pitcher in baseball history?

    As the Dodgers and Rangers reportedly battle over Zack Greinke the latest from CBSSports.com’s Jon Heyman is that there’s a “strong belief by people close to situation” that Greinke “can beat” the $161 million CC Sabathia got from the Yankees. In other words, Greinke could be the highest-paid pitcher in baseball history. Here are the…

  3. Dodgers, Rangers setting up to be top bidders for Zack Greinke

    Dec 3, 2012, 3:23 PM EDT

    Zack Greinke

    The New York Post’s Joel Sherman hears that the Rangers are “right there” with the Dodgers in the bidding for Zack Greinke, with the Nationals possibly still in the mix and the Angels nearly out of it. Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com doesn’t see anyone hanging with the Dodgers, though: But it seems pretty clear who…

  4. It’s official: Andy Pettitte is back

    Andy Pettitte Getty

    Ken Davidoff of the New York Post reports that the Yankees and Andy Pettitte have agreed to a one-year, $12 million contract. This is no surprise, as Pettitte had all but yelled from the rooftops that he was going to pitch in 2013 and it’s hard to see him changing teams at this juncture. Pettitte…

  5. Andy Pettitte and the Yankees close to a deal

    Andy Pettitte is almost back: Sources: Andy Pettitte is close to formally announcing he’s coming back, and he’s close to finishing a new deal with the Yankees. — Buster Olney (@Buster_ESPN) November 27, 2012 Multiple sources are saying the deal will be announced in the next couple of days. Not that most folks expected him…

  6. Matt LaPorta goes unclaimed on waivers, sent to Triple-A

    Nov 21, 2012, 10:15 AM EDT

    Matt LaPorta

    Here’s how far Matt LaPorta‘s stock has fallen since he was the centerpiece of the package Cleveland received for CC Sabathia in mid-2008: Yesterday the Indians dropped LaPorta from the 40-man roster and he went unclaimed by the other 29 teams on waivers. That means LaPorta–now 28 years old and the owner a career .694…

  7. And now the Yankees wait for Andy Pettitte

    Nov 21, 2012, 6:53 AM EDT

    With Hiroki Kuroda in the fold, the Yankees rotation looks like this: CC Sabathia, Kuroda, Phil Hughes, Ivan Nova and David Phelps.  That’ll play, but they really want one more guy. And that guy is presumably mulling it over with his turkey and gravy: The Andy Pettitte waiting game continues. Pettitte is spending Thanksgiving week with his family…

  8. The Indians have a pitcher named C.C. Lee? Really?

    Nov 20, 2012, 1:30 PM EDT

    Vertigo

    Beyond the top prospects and the general flow of things I don’t pay much attention to the minor leagues, so I was kind of surprised to see this name pop up on a tweet about the Indians: Teams must make 40-man roster moves today to protect Rule 5 eligible players from being drafted. One player I expect…

  9. The Dodgers — or the Angels — may be the favorites to land Hiroki Kuroda

    Nov 16, 2012, 5:02 PM EDT

    Hiroki Kuroda Getty

    Hiroki Kuroda is likely to sign a one-year deal. Maybe back with the Yankees. Possibly up in Boston.  But Mark Saxon of ESPN Los Angeles says that the smart money may be on L.A. Why?  Family: Previously, teams have been under the impression that Kuroda would either re-sign with the New York Yankees or return…

  10. Picture of the Day: CC Sabathia doing his part following Hurricane Sandy

    Nov 10, 2012, 4:01 PM EDT

    Sabathia

    Courtesy of the Yankees’ team Twitter account, here’s a picture of CC Sabathia helping repaint and revamp the Hoboken Girls and Boys Club, which was flooded as a result of Hurricane Sandy. By the way, it looks like his surgically-repaired left elbow is doing just fine. Steven Miller of MLB.com notes that Sabathia’s PitCCh In Foundation…

  11. Hurricane Sandy restrictions impacted CC Sabathia’s elbow rehab

    We continue our morning of “let’s find some sort of baseball connection to stuff that is way, way more important than baseball because, man, there isn’t a lot of baseball news yet today.” Next up: those restrictions last week requiring people driving into Manhattan to have at least three people in their cars in order…

  12. CC Sabathia has surgery to remove bone spur from elbow

    Oct 25, 2012, 5:17 PM EDT

    CC Sabathia

    CC Sabathia underwent arthroscopic surgery to remove a bone spur from his elbow, which qualifies as good–or at least not bad–news amid worries that the Yankees ace might have a more serious injury. Barring a setback he’ll have plenty of time to get healthy for spring training and pitchers regularly have no issues returning from…

  13. CC Sabathia says he’s “a little” concerned about his left elbow

    Oct 20, 2012, 4:15 PM EDT

    CC Sabathia Getty

    While CC Sabathia refuses to blame his left elbow for his poor performance in Game 4 of the ALCS against the Tigers on Thursday, he told George A. King of the New York Post today that he’s a little concerned about his upcoming visit to Dr. James Andrews. “A little bit,” the Yankees ace said…

  14. Matt LaPorta undergoes hip surgery to repair torn labrum

    Oct 19, 2012, 12:30 PM EDT

    Matt LaPorta

    Matt LaPorta was already facing an uncertain future in Cleveland after repeatedly struggling in various stints with the Indians and now he’ll have to come back from hip surgery. Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports that LaPorta underwent surgery yesterday to repair a torn labrum in his left hip and “will need three to four months…

  15. Brian Cashman on CC Sabathia: “We’re going to look at that elbow, no doubt about it”

    Oct 19, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

    CC Sabathia

    CC Sabathia insisted after last night’s ugly outing that the elbow problems he dealt with earlier in the season weren’t an issue, but general manager Brian Cashman noted that the Yankees will ask him to get checked out anyway. “Let’s put it this way, we’re going to look at that elbow, no doubt about it,”…

    It takes more than a couple of goats for a team to get swept in a seven-game series. Let’s run down the five people most responsible for the Yankee meltdown. Derek Jeter‘s ankle not being a person, we’ll leave it out of this. 5. Eric Chavez – Alex Rodriguez struggled mightily, yet Chavez was worse.…

  17. Tigers finish off sweep of Yankees to advance to World Series

    Oct 18, 2012, 7:36 PM EDT

    Tigers Reuters

    We know one team who will still be alive next Wednesday. Finishing off a thoroughly dominating performance, the Tigers topped the Yankees 8-1 at Comerica Park today to sweep the ALCS in four games and advance to the World Series. CC Sabathia is a pretty good pitcher to have on your side facing elimination, but…

  18. UPDATE: Tigers up 6-0 in the bottom of the fourth — Sabathia knocked out of the game

    Oct 18, 2012, 5:48 PM EDT

    CC Sabathia

    UPDATE: Make it 6-0. Delmon Young singled and Johnny Peralta homered. Then Andy Dirks doubled and Joe Girardi came and got Sabathia.  There are still many innings to play here, but, it looks the Tigers are World Series bound. 5:41 PM: Make it 4-0: Miguel Cabrera just hit a two-run shot in the bottom of…

  20. If the Yankees weren’t doomed before, they are now

    Oct 17, 2012, 11:56 PM EDT

    CC Sabathia

    No, the Yankees probably weren’t beating the Tigers four times in five days either. Still, Wednesday’s rainout made the assignment that much tougher. – Because they’re playing four games in four days, the Yankees have lost the ability to pitch Game 4 starter CC Sabathia on three days’ rest in Game 7. At best, he’ll…

    From Bryan Hoch of MLB.com comes word that Game 4 of the ALCS has been postponed due to rainy conditions in and around Comerica Park. It will be made up at 4:07 p.m. ET on Thursday. CC Sabathia and Max Scherzer didn’t even bother warming up, so they’ll both be fresh for the makeup. The rest of…

    Sorry, but I can’t get enough of members of the Yankees commentariat trying to outdo one another to draw the broadest, most dramatic conclusions from the results of three games.  It’s great fun.

    Jack Morris

    Jack Morris was asked about the exploits of aces Justin Verlander and CC Sabathia. And he used the opportunity to take a swipe at the Nationals: “I think everybody in the Washington Nationals’ front office should pay attention that guys should go deep into games … when I see CC complete a game two days…

    St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Lohse delivers a pitch to a Washington Nationals batter during the first inning of their MLB National League baseball game in St. Louis

    Sad jams:  this could be the last time we have multiple baseball games on one day this year. What’s on tap: Giants vs. Cardinals, 4PM Eastern: Fox:  The series is tied 1-1, but in some ways it feels like the Cardinals are behind. Probably because their starting pitching is in need of some stability. Indeed,…
