  1. Starlin Castro pulled after his mental error allows a run to score

    Aug 17, 2013, 6:45 PM EDT

    Starlin Castro

    Cubs manager Dale Sveum decided to remove shortstop Starlin Castro from the game after he forgot the number of outs in the top of the fifth inning. With the bases loaded and one out, Matt Carpenter hit a lazy fly ball to shallow left field where Castro ran it down. As he casually slowed down,…

    St. Louis Cardinals v Cincinnati Reds

    Cardinals 11, Reds 4: I’ll take “Improbable scores for an extra-inning game for $200, Alex.” It was already 7-4 in the top of the 10th when Matt Holliday came to the plate but he hit a grand slam off Curtis Partch to truly ice the game. J.J. Hoover was charged with six of the seven…

    Pittsburgh Pirates v Chicago Cubs

    Darwin Barney is back from the disabled list after missing the first two weeks with a lacerated knee, starting at second base and batting seventh for the Cubs tonight against the Rangers. Barney suffered the injury during the final spring training game, so the Cubs turned to Alberto Gonzalez and Brent Lillibridge in a time-share…

  6. Chase Headley takes batting practice, nears rehab stint

    Apr 11, 2013, 10:15 AM EDT

    Chase Headley

    Chase Headley‘s fractured thumb feels good enough that he was able to take batting practice yesterday from both sides of the plate and Corey Brock of MLB.com reports that the Padres third baseman could be cleared for a minor-league rehab assignment as soon as this weekend. Headley was initially given a 4-6 week recovery timetable…

    Jedd Gyorko

    Don’t get too comfortable, kid. On Twitter, Corey Brock says manager Bud Black will be using the rookie at both second and third base depending on the handedness of the opposing pitcher: at second base with a lefty on the hill, and at third base against a right-hander. Cody Ransom will start at third base…

Forsythe has previously played through the foot injury, but he’ll be shut down completely and wear a walking boot for three weeks. San Diego’s infield is…

  10. The Yankees’ non-Youkilis options for third base were … interesting

    Dec 17, 2012, 7:10 AM EDT

    Cody Ransom

    I like the Kevin Youkilis signing by the Yankees. I’m not sure he has a return to form in him — it’s not the years, it’s the mileage, as the man once said — but if he does bounce back he’s gonna be nice to have around even if A-Rod does recover. And let’s face…

  11. Three arguments break out in Brewers-Nationals game

    Jul 29, 2012, 6:35 PM EDT

    Cody Ransom

    One play in the sixth inning of Sunday’s Brewers-Nationals game spawned three arguments with the umpiring crew. The Brewers were up 3-2 and had the bases loaded with one out when Milwaukee’s Norichika Aoki put down a squeeze that was handed by Washington’s Gio Gonzalez. Gonzalez conceded the run and made the throw to first,…

    Aramis Ramirez went through pregame drills today in the hopes of returning to the Brewers’ lineup, but instead he’ll sit out a fifth consecutive game with a strained quadriceps muscle. Cody Ransom is starting at third base in Ramirez’s absence and manager Ron Roenicke has juggled the batting order to get Corey Hart into the…

    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.

    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,…

  15. 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.…

    Rangers pitcher Yu Darvish gestures to fans during their MLB American League baseball game in Toronto

    Rangers 4, Blue Jays 1: I think it’s safe to say that, after a couple of rocky starts to begin the year, Yu Darvish is starting to get comfortable. He struck out nine Blue Jays while giving up a single run in seven innings. The homer was by the incredibly hot Edwin Encarnacion, who has…
