  1. Clayton Kershaw, Scott Van Slyke lead Dodgers past Diamondbacks in opener

    Mar 22, 2014, 7:50 AM EDT

    Clayton Kershaw

    Clayton Kershaw tossed 6 2/3 innings of one-run ball and Scott Van Slyke doubled and homered as the Dodgers topped the Diamondbacks 3-1 in Saturday’s opener in Australia. The game, delayed slightly at the onset by some early evening rain, opened with Wade Miley striking out Yasiel Puig on three pitches. The Dodgers struck first…

  2. 2014 Free Agent Tracker

    Dec 25, 2013, 12:26 AM EDT

    MLB: Yankees-Brian McCann Press Conference

    Here’s the rundown of where this winter’s top 150 free agents are landing, continuously updated throughout the offseason. Re-signings are posted in red, while players signing with new teams are in blue. Stars denote players who received qualifying offers and thus will cost their new team a draft pick if they sign elsewhere. (Non-tenders have…

  3. Diamondbacks re-sign Eric Chavez

    Dec 18, 2013, 3:21 PM EDT

    Arizona Diamondbacks v Colorado Rockies

    After shopping around as a free agent Eric Chavez has decided to return to Arizona, with Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com reporting that he’s agreed to re-sign with the Diamondbacks. Chavez has stayed healthy and productive in part-time roles for the Diamondbacks and Yankees during the past two seasons, hitting a combined .281 with 25 homers…

  4. Yankees looking at Mark Reynolds, Michael Young

    Dec 16, 2013, 7:55 PM EDT

    Michael Young Getty

    Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com reports that the Yankees are contemplating Mark Reynolds, Michael Young and Brian Roberts as they seek to add to their infield.  Reynolds would be a re-signing after finishing last season with the Bombers. He hit .236/.300/.455 with six homers in 36 games with the Yankees and .220/.306/.393 with 21 homers in…

  5. Diamondbacks making a push to re-sign Eric Chavez

    Dec 16, 2013, 11:15 AM EDT

    Eric Chavez

    Eric Chavez has been linked to a half-dozen teams, but Jesse Sanchez of MLB.com reports that re-signing the veteran corner infielder “has become a priority” for the Diamondbacks. Chavez is in an interesting spot because his recent performance in part-time roles has certainly been good enough to justify a full-time role, but given his inability to…

  6. Darwin Barney could be an option for the Yankees

    Dec 14, 2013, 10:01 AM EDT

    Darwin Barney Getty

    Many viewed Omar Infante as the most likely replacement for Robinson Cano, but that possibility is off the board now that he has reportedly agreed to a four-year, $30 million deal with the Royals. Bruce Levine of 670 The Score in Chicago now wonders whether the Yankees will revisit the idea of trading for Cubs…

  7. Where will the Red Sox spend this winter?

    Nov 1, 2013, 1:07 PM EDT

    Masahiro Tanaka

    With Jacoby Ellsbury, Mike Napoli, Stephen Drew and Jarrod Saltalamacchia all filing for free agency, the world champion Red Sox would seem to have a whole lot of flexibility this winter. Even without signing any replacements, they have a perfectly legitimate 25-man roster ready to go: SS: Xander Bogaerts: $500,000 RF: Shane Victorino: $13 million…

  8. HardballTalk’s Top 150 Free Agents for 2014

    Nov 1, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Robinson Cano

    This year’s annual free agents column has expanded to a top 150, though I’m writing up just the top 55 (it was going to be 50, but I couldn’t help myself). The rest are presented in a list. Not included are players whose contract options are sure to be exercised. Players are ranked based not…

  9. Yusmeiro Petit so far from and so close to perfection

    Sep 7, 2013, 1:09 AM EDT

    Yusmeiro Petit, Eric Chavez

    Yusmeiro Petit was one pitch away from what might have been the most unlikely perfect game of all-time. Inches really. The 2-2 pitch to Eric Chavez easily could have been called a strike in a typical situation, even without the help overzealous umpires sometimes give in no-hitter situations. Then Hunter Pence came up just short…

  10. Update: Yusmeiro Petit loses perfect game with two outs in the ninth against the Diamondbacks

    Sep 7, 2013, 12:01 AM EDT

    Yusmeiro Petit

    Giants starter Yusmeiro Petit has retired 21 Diamondbacks in a row and will bring a perfect game into the eighth inning at AT&T Park. He has thrown 16 of 21 first pitches for strikes and has thrown 64 pitches in total. Petit has pitched well since being inserted into the Giants’ rotation on August 27,…

  11. Diamondbacks welcome Miguel Montero and Eric Chavez back from disabled list

    Aug 26, 2013, 7:10 PM EDT

    diamondbacks logo small

    The Diamondbacks will open play tonight 9.5 games behind the Dodgers in the NL West and seven back for a Wild Card spot, but while it will take a remarkable run to secure a playoff spot, they are getting reinforcements back for the stretch run. Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports that catcher Miguel Montero and…

  12. Cody Ross lands on DL with dislocated hip, likely done for season

    Aug 12, 2013, 7:18 PM EDT

    Cody Ross Getty

    The Diamondbacks placed outfielder Cody Ross on the 15-day disabled list today, one day after he dislocated his right hip while running to first base and had to be carted off the field. The injury immediately looked quite serious and Diamondbacks general manager Kevin Towers confirmed on MLB Network Radio on Sirius XM today that…

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

    Jul 24, 2013, 7:07 AM EDT

    Cleveland Indians v Seattle Mariners

    Mariners 4, Indians 3: The M’s just keep on winning. That’s eight in a row, with this one ending interestingly. The Indians had runners on the corners with no one out in the ninth. Then Drew Stubbs got caught in a rundown he probably shouldn’t have gotten caught in between third and home, ending the…

  14. Roy Oswalt pulled in 2nd inning due to strained left hamstring

    Jul 7, 2013, 6:05 PM EDT

    Roy Oswalt

    Rockies starter Roy Oswalt had to leave in the second inning of this afternoon’s game against the Diamondbacks after straining his left hamstring covering home plate after throwing a wild pitch. Eric Chavez scored on the play, giving the Diamondbacks their first run of the game. Edgmer Escalona relieved Oswalt but gave up three runs…

  15. D-Backs activate Eric Chavez, DFA Eric Hinske

    Jun 28, 2013, 11:15 PM EDT

    Arizona Diamondbacks v Colorado Rockies

    The Diamondbacks have activated third baseman Eric Chavez from the disabled list. In a corresponding roster move, they have designated Eric Hinske for assignment. Chavez, 35, had been sidelined with a strained right oblique since the end of May. The injury interrupted a fantastic first two months. Facing right-handed pitching almost exclusively, Chavez hit .325/.368/.588. In…

  16. Diamondbacks put Eric Chavez on the disabled list, activate Willie Bloomquist

    May 31, 2013, 11:19 AM EDT

    Eric Chavez

    Eric Chavez walked off the field in the middle of an at-bat yesterday, so not surprisingly the Diamondbacks have placed the third baseman on the disabled list with a strained oblique. To take his spot on the roster Arizona activated Willie Bloomquist, who’s been on the DL since the end of spring training with an…

  17. Eric Chavez leaves game with apparent injury

    May 30, 2013, 3:00 PM EDT

    Eric Chavez

    Bad news for the snakes: third baseman Eric Chavez left today’s game with an injury: Well this isn’t good. Eric Chavez just took a swing and walked back to the dugout in pain. Cliff Pennington in the game to replace him. — Nick Piecoro (@nickpiecoro) May 30, 2013   Chavez has been fantastic this year,…

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

    May 16, 2013, 6:31 AM EDT

    Seattle Mariners v New York Yankees

    Mariners 12, Yankees 2: This one was over almost before it started, with Phil Hughes getting knocked around for seven runs in the first inning, which he did not escape. Raul Ibanez hit two homers and drove in six off his old team. Which, I imagine, will cause some columnist who has been lauding Brian…

  19. Yankees School of Witchcraft and Wizardry

    May 14, 2013, 9:28 AM EDT

    tumblr_m94ifiK88g1ro8ysbo1_1280

    Every now and again — well, let’s face it, pretty much every day now — I get another email telling me that Vernon Wells — Vernon Bleepin’ Wells — just got another two hits with another homer with another three RBIs and so on. The emails are from Michael Schur, Parks and Recreation executive producer,…

    Between now and Opening Day, HardballTalk will take a look at each of baseball’s 30 teams, asking the key questions, the not-so-key questions, and generally breaking down their chances for the 2013 season. Up next: The New York Yankees. The Big Question: Is the Jeter Dynasty over? People used to predict the end of the…

  21. Cardinals’ lack of action could be their undoing

    Feb 21, 2013, 11:59 PM EDT

    Mike Matheny, Chris Carpenter

    It’s hard to blame the Cardinals for staying the course. Even with free agents Kyle Lohse and Lance Berkman set to depart, St. Louis ended 2012 with a roster that already looked like a winner entering 2013: Rotation: Adam Wainwright, Chris Carpenter, Jaime Garcia, Lance Lynn, Jake Westbrook, Shelby Miller, Joe Kelly, Trevor Rosenthal Bullpen:…

  22. Twenty teams have called about Freddy Sanchez? OK.

    Jan 8, 2013, 11:03 AM EDT

    freddy sanchez batting getty

    Freddy Sanchez hasn’t played a game in the majors since June 10, 2011. The reason: shoulder and back surgeries, each of which can, independently, drain a big leaguer of any value he once had. But teams are willing, apparently, to at least give him a chance: Interest in free-agent second baseman Freddy Sanchez has picked up since the…

  23. 2013 Free Agency Tracker

    Dec 23, 2012, 9:36 PM EDT

    Zack Greinke, Ned Colletti, Magic Johnson

    We’ll be updating this one throughout the offseason. Players are listed based on their ranking in the Top 111 Free Agents. At the bottom is a listing of free agents who signed before the ranking came out, and we’ll be adding signings of players who didn’t make the top 111 as they come in. (Update:…

  24. How the Diamondbacks went from Trevor Bauer to Didi Gregorius

    Dec 11, 2012, 10:06 PM EDT

    Trevor Bauer

    The Diamondbacks and GM Kevin Towers knew all about Trevor Bauer‘s odd delivery and unusual throwing program when they made him the third overall pick in the 2011 draft. If they had questions about him then, they overlooked them in order to get one of the top talents on the board. Now, a year and…

  25. Mariners, Phillies weigh Raul Ibanez return

    Dec 5, 2012, 4:40 PM EDT

    Raul Ibanez

    Having already seen Russell Martin and Eric Chavez sign elsewhere, the Yankees could next lose Raul Ibanez to a more interested suitor. FOXSports.com’s Ken Rosenthal reports that the Mariners, Phillies and Rangers are interested in the 40-year-old. According to the New York Post’s Joel Sherman, Ibanez would prefer to remain with the Yankees, but he’s…
