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

    B.J. Upton

    After a hot streak to begin the month of August, Braves outfielder B.J. Upton had fallen into another slump again, hitting just .100 in his last 44 plate appearances entering tonight’s game against the Marlins.

    Jacob Turner has been a well-known name in the baseball world for so long that it’s almost difficult to believe he is only 22 years old. And yet here we are.

    Carlos Beltran made an early exit from today’s Grapefruit League game against the Marlins after he was hit on the right foot by a pitch from right-hander Jacob Turner in the first inning.

    Rob Brantly

    While right-hander Jacob Turner, the biggest piece the Marlins received from the Tigers in last month’s Anibal Sanchez-Omar Infante deal, continues to toil in the minors, the Marlins announced Sunday that they’re going to give his batterymate, Rob Brantly, an opportunity starting Tuesday.

Quick Take: Anderson is a once-promising slugger who has seemingly run out of gas on his third time through Triple-A. Wright…

  10. Really now, what should the Marlins have done?

    Jul 25, 2012, 12:21 PM EDT

    The Monstrosity

    Look, I’d be just as happy to kick Jeffrey Loria to the curb as the rest of you. I’m not going to slam him for all of the sliminess involving the Marlins ballpark deal because in those maneuverings, he’s basically just doing everything Bud Selig wants his owners to do. But, yeah, as far as MLB…

    This is sharp, but it’s oh, so true: Monday’s trade — right-hander Anibal Sanchez and infielder Omar Infante to the Tigers for right-hander Jacob Turner, catcher Rob Brantly and left-hander Brian Flynn, along with an exchange of competitive-balance picks — was not the start of a fire sale. It actually was worse — an admission by the Marlins that they didn’t know what…

    Jacob Turner, the Tigers top pitching prospect entered spring training with a chance to become the fifth starter.  A bout with shoulder tendinitis derailed that, however.  Over the weekend Jim Leyland said that he still had a “slight chance” to win the fifth starter’s job, but that’s all over now, as the Tigers have optioned…

    You know what a really vague injury is? “Dead arm.”  That’s what Tigers’ prospect Jacob Turner was said to have yesterday.  The next vaguest diagnosis is tendinitis. That’s what he’s said to have today. In his shoulder, and as such he is being shut down for a week. Thing about such maladies, however, is that…

    Danny Knobler of CBSSports.com–who was a longtime beat writer in Detroit–reports that the Tigers “were very interested” in Roy Oswalt, but “he didn’t want to go to Detroit.” There’s been plenty of speculation that the Red Sox dumped Marco Scutaro and his $6 million salary on the Rockies in order to clear the payroll space…
