    The Yankees are, in my view anyway, unlikely to make the playoffs. Yet they refuse, Rasputin-like, to die.

    Miguel Cabrera aggravated a lingering right ankle injury Wednesday night on a slide into home plate. He has appeared in — and recorded at least one hit in — every game since, but the issue won’t go away.

  4. Alex Gordon intends to exercise his player option for 2016

    Aug 23, 2014, 11:05 PM EDT

    Alex Gordon

    Alex Gordon could become a free agent after the 2015 season, but the Royals’ outfielder plans to exercise his $12.5 million player option for 2016 instead.

  5. Drew Smyly has been really good since joining the Rays

    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.

  6. Position player pitching alert: The Tigers turned to Andrew Romine in a blowout

    The Tigers turned to infielder Andrew Romine to pitch in a blowout last night.

    Aug 22, 2014, 10:10 PM EDT

    Felix Hernandez

    Felix Hernandez has struck out 200-plus batters in each of the last six seasons, something no other starting pitcher will have done when the season is over.

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

    Another Washington walkoff. Another dominant Clayton Kershaw start. And some unusual stuff happened too.

  9. Phil Hughes rolls to 14th win, sports third best K/BB ratio ever

    Aug 21, 2014, 6:14 PM EDT

    Phil Hughes

    But not the best among major league starters this season.

  10. David Price threw a one-hitter against the Rays. And lost.

    Aug 21, 2014, 4:00 PM EDT

    Screen Shot 2014-08-21 at 3.56.49 PM

    One unearned run was all he allowed against his old mates. Tough way to lose.

  11. Miguel Cabrera aggravated an ankle injury last night

    Aug 21, 2014, 11:32 AM EDT

    He’ll rub some dirt on it and play through, but the Tigers really don’t need this.

  12. Justin Verlander has avoided the disabled list and expects to start Saturday

    Aug 21, 2014, 10:15 AM EDT

    Division Series - Detroit Tigers v Oakland Athletics - Game Two

    Dating back to mid-May he has a 5.85 ERA in 17 starts, including an ERA higher than 4.50 in May, June, July, and August.

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

    Aug 21, 2014, 7:11 AM EDT

    Anthony Rendon

    No one can stop the Nats. Who, as one young lad on their team says, are playing “absolutely epic” baseball right now.

  14. Heyman: Jon Lester unlikely to sign with the Sox this offseason

    Aug 20, 2014, 3:30 PM EDT

    Jon Lester

    He’s going to have his pick of landing spots, and Boston is just one of a zillion teams who would like him.

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

    Aug 20, 2014, 6:54 AM EDT

    Bases loaded walk

    A bases-loaded walk helped the Tigers win a game. A walkoff plunking gave the Cardinals the win. And the crew in Chicago couldn’t get a tarp on the field. Can anyone around here play this game anymore?

  16. Felix Hernandez says he’s good to go after hip bruise

    Aug 18, 2014, 10:02 PM EDT

    1a08b8d7500b87ad124a11b5a62c15bc

    Felix Hernandez suffered a hip bruise against the Tigers on Saturday, but the Mariners’ ace says he’s “good” to go for his next start.

  17. Numbers game: Tigers fall victim to baseball’s speed obsession

    Aug 18, 2014, 9:09 PM EDT

    140818-Doug-Fister

    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.

  18. Mariners move past Tigers into second AL Wild Card spot

    Aug 16, 2014, 1:08 PM EDT

    Robinson Cano AP

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

    Aug 16, 2014, 10:48 AM EDT

    Chris Taylor Getty

    Oh, and we also get a bonus collision between Victor Martinez and Logan Morrison at first base. Fortunately nobody got hurt here, so this video is just a lot of fun to watch.

  20. Rays’ surge continues, grab a bit of history in the process

    Aug 15, 2014, 10:55 PM EDT

    Joel Peralta, Curt Casali

    The Rays accomplished something only three other teams have done in baseball history with Friday’s shutout win against the Yankees.

  21. Tigers give away mislabeled Miguel Cabrera bobbleheads to fans

    Aug 15, 2014, 9:35 PM EDT

    Miguel Cabrera

    The Miguel Cabrera bobbleheads given away to fans on Friday night contained a rather large error.

    wrigley300

    Joe Posnanski ranks all 30 MLB ballparks. Spoiler alert: Wrigley Field is No. 1.

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

    Aug 15, 2014, 7:05 AM EDT

    Max Scherzer

    Striking out 14 guys and/or scoring seven runs: strongly correlated with winning games.

    “I have two kids and I need to be a better example for them.”

    “I’m going to get other opinions. Whether I need to go visit them or not, I don’t know. The more minds you put together to look at something, the better.”
