  1. Nelson Cruz likely to accept suspension, leaves Biogenesis-tainted agents

    Aug 5, 2013, 11:50 AM EST

    Nelson Cruz

    The word Wednesday was that Nelson Cruz might appeal the anticipated 50-game ban handed coming down in the Biogenesis scandal, but Jon Heyman reports that Cruz has decided to serve his time now in anticipation of becoming a free agent this winter. It was also disclosed that Cruz is leaving the ACES agency, which represented…

    Chicago White Sox v Cleveland Indians

    Indians 6, White Sox 5: Living with a Tigers fan is kinda hard sometimes. Like, when you have the Indians-White Sox game on the TV, she wants the Indians to lose, the White Sox blow a two-run lead in the ninth and then Carlos Santana hits a walkoff homer in extras. It’s even more complicated…

  3. Ryan Braun’s suspension may be the easiest of them all: looking at the next Biogenesis targets

    Ryan Braun‘s suspension was first and, as the alleged public enemy number one — or two — of Major League Baseball, may eventually be seen as the most significant.  But at the moment it sort of seems like small potatoes, all things considered. Why? Because the Brewers season was already effectively over and it will…

  4. So, if MLB suspends Braun and A-Rod, what’s next?

    Home plate umpire Additon calls time as Tampa Yankees' Rodriguez grimaces after he was hit by a pitch during a Single A baseball game with the Brevard County Manatees in Melbourne

    T.J. Quinn and Mike Fish reported Tuesday that MLB is prepared to suspend Ryan Braun, Alex Rodriguez and “as many as 20 players” in connection with the Biogenesis scandal “sometime after next week’s All-Star break.” Outside the Lines got this from several sources, some likely from within the commissioner’s office. MLB hasn’t been shy about…

    San Diego Padres v Miami Marlins

    Marlins 6, Padres 2: An improbable walkoff grand slam from Jeff Mathis caps an improbable winning month from the Miami Marlins. 15-10 in June for the worst team in baseball. Not bad. Oh, and Mathis’ homer was the 3,000th in team history. Pirates 2, Brewers 1: A 14th inning walkoff win for the hottest and…

    New York Yankees' Suzuki runs and watches the ball after he hit a walk-off home run to beat the Texas Rangers in their MLB American League game in New York

    Yankees 4, Rangers 3: Walkoff homer for Ichiro? Well shut my mouth. Wait, what? Well jeez, Brian, it’s just an expression. You don’t have to agree so emphatically and profanely. Angels 14, Tigers 8: Well that fifth inning got out of a hand in a hurry. Rick Porcello was beaten around for seven runs on…

    Nationals right-hander Stephen Strasburg was lifted from his start last Friday against the Braves because of a Grade 1 lat strain. But the hope is that he won’t even miss a full turn in the Nats’ starting rotation. According to CSN Washington’s Mark Zuckerman, Strasburg is scheduled to throw a bullpen session on Wednesday and…

    Jhonny Peralta, Jim Leyland, Tony Randazzo

    Let’s run down the list of players connected to Tony Bosch’s Biogenesis clinic as MLB is reportedly preparing to issue 50- or 100-game suspensions. Listed below are players whose names are found in the Biogenesis documents. Other major leaguers may well be involved, as some of Bosch’s clients were listed in code. Since Bosch is…

    Performance-enhancing drugs loomed large entering the baseball season, amid reports that dozens of players — many of them high-profile stars — could be suspended because of their reported involvement with a clinic that supplied PEDs. That story just got bigger. From ESPN.com investigative reporters T.J. Quinn, Pedro Gomez and Mike Fish: Major League Baseball will…

    Miami Marlins v Los Angeles Dodgers

    The Dodgers suck, but they’ve been aces on fan relations lately. First that Matt Kemp video last week, now Hyun-Jin Ryu warms up with a young fan: Man, the kid has a pretty good arm. Wonder if he could take Beckett’s slot in the rotation … UPDATE: Gio Gonzalez did it too: This trend will…

    Colorado Rockies v St. Louis Cardinals

    Last year, of course, we were lucky enough to get two of the most precocious young players in baseball history — Mike Trout put up a historic season at age 20, Bryce Harper put up a superb one at age 19. It was the greatest young duo to hit baseball since 1928 — when Jimmie…

    It was easy to sense a tiny bit of panic in the air after the Nationals dropped four in a row this week to fall under .500 for the first time since 2011. However, the past two games can put any of that silliness to bed. After Gio Gonzalez limited the Reds to a solo…

  13. And That Happened: Thursday’s scores and hightlights

    Apr 26, 2013, 6:04 AM EST

    Kansas City Royals v Detroit Tigers

    Royals 8, Tigers 3: You can try to make Phil Coke a multi-inning reliever all you want, but he’s still going to be a lefty specialist. And when he comes in and has trouble even getting the lefties out, you can’t stick with him. He’s not the one who gave up the grand slam to…

  14. The Nationals are under .500 for the first time since 2011

    Cardinals' Molina hits a two-run RBI single off Nationals' Strasburg in the first inning of their MLB National League baseball game in Washington

    The Cardinals completed a three-game sweep in D.C. by winning 4-2 on Wednesday, dropping the Nationals to 10-11 on the young season. It’s the first time the popular NL pennant pick has been below .500 since finishing the 2011 season with an 80-81 record. Last year, the Nats were over .500 after every game but…

    Detroit Tigers v Oakland Athletics

    Tigers 10, Athletics 1: Austin Jackson was 4 for 6 with three RBI. Prince Fielder is now hitting .429/.527/.833. Once this team gets its bullpen figured out, man, watch out. Diamondbacks 1, Dodgers 0: When Nick Swisher hit a walkoff homer single in a 1-0 game the other day I thought to myself, “man, you don’t…

    Washington Nationals Kurt Suzuki waits on the ball as Atlanta Braves Jason Heyward slides in safe in the third inning at their MLB game in Atlanta

    We’re only nine games into the season, but this weekend we have what you might consider to be the first big series of the season: Braves vs. Nationals at Nats Park. Atlanta is 8-1, their best start since winning 13 of 14 to begin the 1994 season. It’s hard to get a true gauge on them…

  17. Report: MLB, player buying up Biogenesis documents

    Apr 12, 2013, 1:17 AM EST

    Bud Selig defiant

    The New York Times is reporting that MLB, rebuffed in its attempts to get Biogenesis documents from the Miami New Times, is now paying an ex-Biogenesis employee for documents relating to the case. Which is interesting enough. Making it even more fascinating: according to the report, the league has taken this step after learning that…

    Washington Nationals Photo Day

    Bob Carpenter asked Gio Gonzalez about how he pitched in the cold weather yesterday. This is what Gio Gonzalez said: “It was tough to get a grip. I felt like I was making love to my hand. Just one of those things where I was constantly trying to find some grip, somehow, some way. The…

    Philadelphia Phillies v Atlanta Braves

    Today was supposed to be the first day that I posted ATH later than I used to. Really: I was going to restore life balance with this one. I watched the Braves game last night but rather than stay up another hour and a half or two hours getting most of the recaps done, I…

  20. Duck! Ervin Santana picked up right where he left off

    Apr 3, 2013, 4:46 PM EST

    Adam Dunn

    Ervin Santana served up an AL-high 39 homers in 178 innings last season on the way to posting a 5.16 ERA that convinced the Angels to dump him on the Royals. Santana made his Royals debut today and allowed three homers in six innings, as Adam Dunn, Dayan Viciedo, and Tyler Flowers all took him…

  21. Davey Johnson gave his catcher a carrot

    Mar 29, 2013, 8:45 PM EST

    Wilson Ramos

    Metaphorically. The Nationals’ manager was explaining why he gave the Opening Day start behind the dish to Wilson Ramos and not Kurt Suzuki. Via Adam Kilgore: Johnson made the decision – “a tough call,” he said – for two reasons. He had already decided to alternate Ramos and Suzuki every other game, and so on…

    Mar 16, 2013, 10:30 AM EST

    AP090818049067

    It was announced yesterday that Tigers minor league right-hander Cesar Carrillo was suspended 100 games for violating the minor league drug prevention and treatment program. No specific drug was mentioned in the announcement, but it was later confirmed that the suspension was the result of his connection to the Miami-based Biogenesis clinic. But there’s a…

    Stephen Strasburg, Gio Gonzalez

    Gio Gonzalez led the NL with 21 wins last season and finished third in the Cy Young voting, but manager Davey Johnson announced that the Nationals will go with Stephen Strasburg as their Opening Day starter. Strasburg got the Opening Day assignment last season as well and tossed seven innings of one-run ball against the…
