Twins right-hander Phil Hughes has thrived with a change of scenery this season and he could finish the year with a place in MLB history.

Tampa Bay has called up switch-hitting infielder Nick Franklin, whom the Rays acquired from the Mariners on July 31 in the three-team trade revolving around David Price.

Drew Smyly has been ace-like for the Rays since they acquired him from the Tigers in the three-team David Price trade, boasting a 1.70 ERA and 0.755 WHIP in 47 2/3 frames. But this is Smyly’s first year as a full-time starter and he had already logged 105 1/3 innings for Detroit at the time of the July 31 swap, so Tampa Bay will shut him down early.

A third of all of yesterday’s games were shutouts. Three dudes had two-homer games. Happy 2014.

Four Phillies combine for the no-no. I’m actually surprised we haven’t seen more of these in recent years.

The Brewers tried but ultimately failed to acquire David Price from the Rays in July because they refused to part with pitcher Jimmy Nelson.

Yet another protested game in a week full of protests. This one isn’t going anywhere, though.

MLB.com strung together video of all nine hits, which is weirdly mesmerizing to watch.

Every fifth day I wake up in the morning and see another impressive Clayton Kershaw pitching line.

The Tigers entered play Wednesday night trailing the Royals by 1 1/2 games in the American League Central standings and were hoping to get another strong start from trade deadline acquisition David Price, who tossed eight innings of one-run ball last week in Tampa Bay. Price did not come through.

From FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal comes word that the Athletics have claimed Rays shortstop Yunel Escobar off revocable waivers. The two teams have until 1 p.m. ET on Tuesday to work out a trade.

Many around the game were underwhelmed when the Rays acquired Drew Smyly, Nick Franklin, and Willy Adames in the three-team David Price deal last month. It will probably take years before we can make a fair assessment, but the early returns are positive for Tampa Bay.
Aug 22, 2014, 6:33 AM EDT
Another Washington walkoff. Another dominant Clayton Kershaw start. And some unusual stuff happened too.
Aug 21, 2014, 6:14 PM EDT
But not the best among major league starters this season.

One unearned run was all he allowed against his old mates. Tough way to lose.
Aug 18, 2014, 9:09 PM EDT
Doug Fister was a perfectly useful pitcher for Detroit, but he didn’t show up on the radar gun. Now, Fister is leading the National not the playoffs while the Tigers are fighting to stay alive.

The Mariners have won five straight games while the Tigers have dropped seven out of their last 10.

Twelve days ago the Tigers had the best rotation in baseball. Today they’re starting a dude named “Buck Farmer.”
Aug 12, 2014, 6:49 AM EDT
The Kansas City Royals are in first place. In mid-August. This is nor a drill.
Aug 9, 2014, 4:26 PM EDT
Casey Janssen blew a save for the Blue Jays last night. Today it was Joe Nathan’s turn.
Aug 8, 2014, 12:03 PM EDT
For what it says about the Cubs, not what it says about the Phillies or Cole Hamels.
Aug 6, 2014, 8:38 AM EDT
The future arrived for the Chicago Cubs last night. At least a very important part of it. And Javier Baez delivered when it mattered most.
Aug 6, 2014, 7:59 AM EDT
He was excellent on Tuesday night. And he showed why the Tigers will be better for having him every other night.
Aug 6, 2014, 7:07 AM EDT
Welcome to the Tigers, David Price. Welcome to the big leagues Javier Baez.
