  12. Masahiro Tanaka had a heck of a game against the Marlins on Friday

    Mar 28, 2014, 10:10 PM EST

    Masahiro Tanaka

    Yankees GM Brian Cashman signed Japanese starter Masahiro Tanaka to a seven-year, $155 million contract in January, then spent some time deflating expectations for the right-hander. His spring performance, including his final outing Friday afternoon against the Marlins, may have reinflated those expectations. Hiroki Kuroda started and tossed three scoreless innings before Tanaka entered the…

    Philadelphia Phillies v Washington Nationals

    For the third straight season the Nationals have turned to Stephen Strasburg as their Opening Day starter, choosing him over Gio Gonzalez and Jordan Zimmermann. “He’s earned it,” rookie manager Matt Williams told Mark Zuckerman of CSNWashington.com, noting that he also gave serious consideration to Zimmermann. Last season Strasburg threw 183 innings with a 3.00…

    St. Louis Cardinals v Washington Nationals - Game Four

    Nationals starter Jordan Zimmermann signed a two-year, $24 million deal to avoid arbitration back in January. The right-hander, who has finished each of the past three seasons with an ERA of 3.25 or better, had been discussing a long-term deal with the organization, but the two sides were ultimately too far apart and agreed on…

    The offseason, when on goes trolling players’ Instagram accounts to see what they’re doing with their free time. Gio Gonzalez is the leader in the Cool Story, Bro clubhouse with this: Yep. A big ol’ sailfish that took him 47 minutes to reel in. No one tell Paul Daugherty. He’d probably want to tell Gonzalez…

    Like most pitchers, Nationals left-hander Gio Gonzalez has been throwing regular offseason bullpen sessions to stay sharp. Unlike most pitchers, Gonzalez has enlisted one of the best catchers in baseball history, Jorge Posada, to be behind the plate for those sessions. Gonzalez and Posada meet up at the University of Miami baseball field on Tuesdays…

    The Yankees made headlines when it was announced that they had signed Japanese pitcher Masahiro Tanaka to a seven-year deal worth $155 million.

    Per MLB.com, the Dodgers locked up Clayton Kershaw for seven years at $215 million earlier today.

He finished the year with a 3.50 ERA in 192.2 innings, ranking as a solid #3 option in the Athletics’ rotation behind Gio Gonzalez and Trevor Cahill.

  20. Nationals acquire Doug Fister from Tigers

    UPDATE: It’s done. The Nationals just announced that prospect left-hander Robbie Ray will also be sent to Detroit. So it’s Fister for Ray, Krol, and Lombardozzi. Interesting. Ray has really improved his stock as a prospect over the past year, but it’s surprising that the Nationals were able to acquire Fister without giving up a…

    For the second year in a row, the Cardinals will turn to Adam Wainwright in a decisive NLDS Game 5. Last year, they escaped with a win, but it was with no help from their ace. Wainwright was tagged for six runs in 2 1/3 innings by the Nationals in Game 5 of the NLDS…

    Arizona Diamondbacks v Los Angeles Dodgers

    Dodgers 8, Diamondbacks 1: Three bombs for Juan Uribe and four driven in. What a season for the guy who, in his first two years in Dodger blue, looked lost and, frankly, over. This year he’s hitting .279/.334/.476, is playing excellent defense at third and who has been, by all accounts, a great guy in…
