    Reynolds_Greg

    Greg Reynolds, who was once the No. 2 overall pick in the 2006 draft by the Rockies, has agreed to a minor-league deal with the Reds. At this point Reynolds is little more than minor-league filler despite still being just 27 years old. Reynolds has a 7.47 ERA in 94 career innings as a big…

  2. Joe Mauer, David Wright commit to Team USA for WBC

    Dec 3, 2012, 5:22 PM EDT

    Joe Mauer

    We’ll hear plenty about players opting out of the World Baseball Classic over the next couple of months. How about a couple of guys that are in: Minnesota’s Joe Mauer and the Mets’ David Wright. The Mauer commitment makes it less of a big deal now if Buster Posey decides not to play for Team…

    Lost in the news of Evan Longoria‘s six-year, $100 million extension is that the Rays third baseman underwent surgery last week to “clean up” his left hamstring after missing more than half of the season with a partial tear. “With the time we had there’s no doubt that I’d be able to recover and be…

    The Rays announced earlier today that they have locked up third baseman Evan Longoria through at least 2022 with a six-year, $100 million extension.

  6. Evan Longoria signs six-year, $100 million extension with Rays

    Nov 26, 2012, 10:01 AM EDT

    Evan Longoria

    Evan Longoria was already under the Rays’ control through 2016 thanks to a long-term contract he signed literally one week after his big-league debut in 2008, but today the two sides agreed to a six-year, $100 million extension that runs through 2022. By combining the remainder of his previous contract and the $100 million extension…

  7. An early guess at Team USA’s WBC lineup

    Oct 17, 2012, 6:31 PM EDT

    trout getty

    If Derek Jeter‘s broken ankle didn’t take him out of the mix for the World Baseball Classic the moment it happened, today’s news that he needs surgery definitely makes the issue moot. But as unfortunate as Jeter’s injury is for the Yankees, it’s not necessarily a bad thing for Team USA in next spring’s World…

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

    Oct 4, 2012, 5:30 AM EDT

    Texas Rangers v Oakland Athletics

    Athletics 12, Rangers 5: Oakland shocks the world. No one on the planet had them pegged as a playoff team and, as recently as a week ago, no one figured they had a chance in hell at the division crown. Well, that’s what you get for pegging and figuring. As for the Rangers … just,…

    Oct 3, 2012, 9:53 PM EDT

  10. Rays top White Sox for eighth straight victory

    Sep 27, 2012, 11:36 PM EDT

    Luke Scott

    A week ago it appeared the Rays may be reduced to the role of spoiler when they faced the White Sox and Orioles in their final seven games of the season. Now, they’re right back in it after winning their eighth straight game on Thursday night against the Pale Hose. Evan Longoria homered in the…

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

    Sep 24, 2012, 5:30 AM EDT

    Chicago White Sox v Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

    Angels 4, White Sox 1: Did you know that if you win the AL Central that you contract a horrible disease? If you answered yes, you must be either the Tigers or the White Sox. That’s five straight losses for Chicago. Jered Weaver wins his 19th, allowing one run over six and a third. Kendrys…

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

    Sep 18, 2012, 6:07 AM EDT

    Detroit Tigers v Chicago White Sox

    White Sox 5, Tigers 4: For want of some leather, the empire was lost. Or something like that.  The Tigers now find themselves three back of the White Sox with no more head-to-head games. This is pretty dire for the Tigers. Braves 7, Marlins 5: Dan Uggla continues to kill his old team. He hit…

  13. Yankees, Orioles eek out one-run wins to preserve AL East tie

    Sep 12, 2012, 11:12 PM EDT

    Nate McLouth

    The Orioles got a walkoff win over the Rays in the bottom of the ninth Wednesday, and the Yankees held on against the Red Sox to keep pace in the AL East. Baltimore won 3-2 on a Nate McLouth “single” off the right field wall that scored Manny Machado with one out in the ninth,…

  14. B.J. Upton hits three homers in Rays’ shutout of Rangers

    Sep 9, 2012, 4:21 PM EDT

    B.J. Upton

    It’s not too often a two-hit shutout gets overshadowed, but B.J. Upton did his best to secure the spotlight on Sunday, hitting three homers in the Rays’ 6-0 win over the Rangers. James Shields went the distance for the Rays, notching his second shutout of the season. He has eight in his career, six of…

    New York Yankees' Derek Jeter reacts during the ninth inning of their MLB American League baseball game against the Tampa Bay Rays in St. Petersburg

    As it turned out, the Orioles didn’t need to wait until the weekend series against the Yankees for their chance to top the AL East standings. Baltimore smoked Toronto 12-0 and the Yankees lost to the Rays 5-2 on Tuesday, setting up a tie for first place in the AL East. The Rays closed to…

  16. Evan Longoria leaves the Yankees-Rays game for “precautionary reasons”

    Sep 3, 2012, 4:24 PM EDT

    Evan Longoria

    UPDATE: This is strange. Marc Topkin reports that Longoria left the game “for precautionary reasons,” given that the Rays were playing a day game after a travel day. Which, OK, but the game was tied 3-3 and the Rays are fighting for their playoff lives. Are the Nationals making decisions about his playing time now…

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

    Aug 30, 2012, 5:45 AM EDT

    Bryce Harper

    Nationals 8, Marlins 4: Bryce Harper hit two homers, bro. Jacob Turner: not really ready for the major leagues yet, bro. Mets 3, Phillies 2: Matt Harvey continues to impress (6.1 IP, 6 H, 2 ER, 6K). The Phillies pitcher is listed in the box score is named “Tyler Cloyd.” I’m calling b.s.  That’s a…

  18. Evan Longoria starts at third for first time since April 30

    Aug 21, 2012, 6:01 PM EDT

    Evan Longoria

    Evan Longoria had been limited to DH duties since returning from his hamstring tear two weeks ago, but he’s back at third base tonight for the first time since getting hurt on April 30. “I’m excited to say the least. A little bit nervous,” he told Roger Mooney of the Tampa Tribune. Longoria has started…

  19. King Felix pitches perfect game against the Rays

    Aug 15, 2012, 5:09 PM EDT

    Felix Hernandez

    6:02 p.m EDT update: Hernandez is perfect, getting a called third strike on Sean Rodriguez to end the ninth. It’s the first perfect game in Mariners history, and the Rays became the first team ever to be on the losing end of three perfect games. Hernandez ended up striking out five of the final six…

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

    Aug 13, 2012, 5:30 AM EDT

    Rajai Davis

    Blue Jays 10, Yankees 7: Holy frijole, did you see Rajai Davis’ catch, robbing Casey McGehee of a home run in the seventh? The guy is like 5”9″ and the wall is like ten feet and he went Spud Webb on that bad boy. Or Spiderman. Or something. Just wow. Otherwise, the Jays beat the tar out…

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

    Aug 10, 2012, 5:40 AM EDT

    New York Mets starting pitcher Dickey throws a knuckleball as he pitches to the Miami Marlins during the ninth inning of their MLB National League game in New York

    Mets 6, Marlins 1: R.A. Dickey continues his dominant year. He struck out ten and didn’t walk any while tossing a complete game. And we may see more of him soon. Royals 8, Orioles 2: Manny Machado made his major league debut. Two for four with a triple. Not bad! No one else did anything,…

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

    Aug 8, 2012, 6:14 AM EDT

    Rockford Files

    Tigers 6, Yankees 5: Miguel Cabrera homered for the third straight game. The dude is good. The Tigers have won six straight and, with the White Sox loss, pull to within a half game. Speaking of the Tigers, I found out last night that one of the people I hung out with at Comerica Park…

  23. Evan Longoria starting at DH, batting cleanup for Rays

    Aug 7, 2012, 4:16 PM EDT

    longoria ap

    As expected Evan Longoria is off the disabled list and back in the Rays’ lineup tonight for the first time since April 30. Longoria, who missed 85 games with a hamstring injury, is batting cleanup but for now at least the Rays are keeping him off the field defensively by using him at designated hitter.…

    Jul 31, 2012, 10:17 PM EDT

    longoria ap

    The Rays were hoping to get Evan Longoria back on Friday night. But that’s highly unlikely to happen. From beat writer Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times comes word that Longo felt renewed soreness in his left hamstring after playing consecutive rehab games on Sunday and Monday at Triple-A Durham and will be shut…
