  3. Red Sox place Shane Victorino on disabled list, recall Jackie Bradley Jr.

    Mar 31, 2014, 11:19 AM EDT

    Shane Victorino

    Jackie Bradley Jr. is on the Red Sox’s Opening Day roster after all, but it took an injury for Shane Victorino to make it happen. Bradley lost the center field job to Grady Sizemore and was sent to Triple-A after hitting just .158 during spring training, but he’s been recalled from the minors because Victorino…

    Orioles manager Buck Showalter announced this afternoon that Chris Tillman will start Opening Day against the Red Sox on March 31. This will be the first Opening Day assignment of Tillman’s career. Showalter called it a “reward” for the 25-year-old right-hander, who has quickly gone from disappointment to rotation staple. Tillman went 16-7 with a…

    Well, this is fantastic. The Orioles will be a must-watch in their Grapefruit League game against the Yankees this afternoon, as Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun notes that Nelson Cruz will make the start in center field. Oh, but that’s not all. He’ll be flanked by Delmon Young in right field and Steve Pearce…

    The Yankees made headlines when it was announced that they had signed Japanese pitcher Masahiro Tanaka to a seven-year deal worth $155 million. They were in need of rotation help and satisfied that need in a big way by signing the best free agent pitcher on the market. That the Yankees signed him came as…

    Jan 4, 2014, 8:58 AM EDT

    orioles logo

    The Orioles are still unsettled at closer and could use another bat for the designated hitter spot, but Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports hears that adding another starting pitcher is the club’s “primary focus” at this time. As we have heard throughout the winter, veteran right-hander A.J. Burnett is at the top of their list.…

    Dec 22, 2013, 9:25 PM EDT

    Toronto Blue Jays v Baltimore Orioles

    Orioles pitching prospect Dylan Bundy has begun to throw from 45 feet as he continues to make strides on his way back from Tommy John surgery. The right-hander, who was the #2 overall prospect as ranked by Baseball America entering the 2013 season, went under the knife in late June and isn’t expected to be…

  12. Report: Phillies dangling All-Star Domonic Brown

    Dec 9, 2013, 1:28 PM EDT

    Domonic Brown

    The Phillies’ Domonic Brown had a breakthrough season at age 25, finishing tied for fourth in the NL with 27 homers and appearing in the All-Star Game. That would seem to make him a centerpiece player, right? Sources: Phillies actively shopping OF Domonic Brown. Looking for controllable starting pitching in return. Idea is to sell…

    Buck Showalter

    The Baltimore Orioles are, in most ways, a better baseball team than they were last year. – Last year, they scored 712 runs. This year, they are on pace to score 760. – Last year, they gave up 705 runs. This year, they are on pace to give up a similar 712. – Last year,…

  14. And That Happened: Monday’s scores and highlights

    Sep 10, 2013, 6:58 AM EDT

    Arizona Diamondbacks v Los Angeles Dodgers

    Dodgers 8, Diamondbacks 1: Three bombs for Juan Uribe and four driven in. What a season for the guy who, in his first two years in Dodger blue, looked lost and, frankly, over. This year he’s hitting .279/.334/.476, is playing excellent defense at third and who has been, by all accounts, a great guy in…

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

    Aug 30, 2013, 6:46 AM EDT

    Oakland Athletics v Detroit Tigers

    Tigers 7, Athletics 6: Torii Hunter walks off the Tigers who came back from a 6-1 deficit. A 6-3 deficit in the ninth. All while losing Miguel Cabrera mid-game. Now, starting pitching, please stop requiring Tigers bats to bail you out all the time. Orioles 3, Red Sox 2: Baltimore avoids the sweep and pulls…

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

    Jul 22, 2013, 5:12 AM EDT

    Philadelphia Phillies v New York Mets

    Mets 5, Phillies 0: It’s getting close to the time for us to break out all of that “we are all witnesses” kind of hyperbole for Matt Harvey. Not that it’s really hyperbole. He’s simply toying with hitters at this point, throwing ungodly stuff in just about every count. Seven innings, three hits, ten strikeouts,…

  18. Jim Leyland asserts the supremacy of the pitcher win at the All-Star press conference

    Jul 15, 2013, 2:15 PM EDT

    Apple Citi Field

    I just got back from the All-Star Game press conference in which Jim Leyland and Bruce Bochy announced their starting pitchers and lineups.  As Aaron noted, we get Scherzer vs. Harvey and a couple of lineups with which you could quibble, I suppose, if you wanted to, but what’s the point, really? Go outside and…

  19. All-Star roster fun: McCann, Melancon, Romo, Balfour, Holland, Tillman added

    Jul 14, 2013, 7:15 PM EDT

    Brian McCann AP

    The weekend preceding the All-Star Game festivities is always fun because the list of actual All-Stars expands by about ten players as injured players step down and would-be snubs finally get their call. Today, American League Sunday starters Bartolo Colon of the Athletics, Hisashi Iwakuma of the Mariners, and Justin Verlander of the Tigers were…

  20. Justin Verlander’s great outing marred by quad injury

    Jul 14, 2013, 6:05 PM EDT

    Texas Rangers v Detroit Tigers

    Justin Verlander brought a no-hit bid against the Rangers into the seventh inning, getting two quick outs on fly balls before Mitch Moreland doubled to center. He retired Elvis Andrus on a pop-up to end the inning, and as it would turn out, his afternoon. Verlander left with tightness in his right quadriceps, though the…

  21. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    Jun 5, 2013, 7:03 AM EDT

    Miami Marlins v Philadelphia Phillies

    Phillies 7, Marlins 3: John Mayberry had a walkoff grand slam. Probably good that the Phillies won this one. After a brutally bad call by Bob Davidson in the bottom of the eighth on a Ben Revere takeout slide, the crowd didn’t stop letting the umps hear it. Apparently none of the tens of thousands…

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

    May 30, 2013, 7:11 AM EDT

    Chicago White Sox v Chicago Cubs

    Players who hit multiple home runs in a game are the new inefficiency. Teams should definitely stock up on those guys while they’re undervalued. Cubs 9, White Sox 3: Backup catcher Dioner Navarro smacked three homers — a solo, a two-run and a three-run jack — to pace the Cubbies. A Cubbies team who happen…

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

    May 3, 2013, 6:42 AM EDT

    St. Louis Cardinals v Milwaukee Brewers

    Cardinals 6, Brewers 5: Jake Westbrook with career win 100. And get this: dude allowed only one run in six innings and his ERA increased. Which, yes, will happen when you come in at 0.98. It’s now an unsightly 1.10. He talked after the game how 100 was a goal for him. And while, no,…

  24. And That Happened: Monday’s scores and highlights

    Apr 23, 2013, 6:46 AM EDT

    Oakland Athletics v Boston Red Sox

    Red Sox 9, Athletics 6: Just yesterday Mike Napoli was named player of the week for last week. He’s making a bid for a repeat now, hitting a grand slam and driving in five runs here. Overall he has 25 RBI in 19 games. Orioles 2, Blue Jays 1: Chris Tillman had a one hitter…

  25. Orioles sign Freddy Garcia to minor league deal

    Mar 29, 2013, 7:35 PM EDT

    Padres-Angels Spring Baseball

    The Orioles are hoping to get a little of that 2011 magic back with Freddy Garcia, as they have signed him to a Minor League deal according to Scott Miller. Garcia posted an 8.71 ERA in 20.2 innings spanning six starts for the Padres in spring training before they cut him four days ago. He…
