    We heard yesterday that Edinson Volquez is drawing interest from multiple teams, but don’t take that to mean that the Padres are sellers. CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman reports that the Padres will attempt to upgrade their starting rotation leading up to the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline. While the club currently sits at 38-38 on…

    As first relayed by beat writer Mark D. Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune, an MRI taken Wednesday on Jake Peavy‘s sore left rib cage revealed a non-displaced fracture and the veteran right-hander is going to be sidelined for at least the next 4-6 weeks.

    Jake Peavy failed to make it out of the third inning against the Mariners last night, getting knocked around for six runs before leaving with a rib injury that puts his status in question.

    Yes, he was facing the worst team in the major leagues. But it was still an impressive outing. Jake Peavy pitched all nine innings Saturday in Chicago’s 2-1 victory over the Marlins, fanning five batters and allowing only six hits in his second consecutive 117-pitch start. It was his 14th career complete game, and he…

    May 20, 2013, 6:22 AM EDT

    Freddy Galvis

    Phillies 3, Reds 2: Aroldis Chapman is usually automatic. But he surrendered back-to-back bombs to the murderers row that is Erik Kratz and Freddy Galvis as the Philly walked off Cincinnati. Heck, the inning started with Chapman walking Delmon Young on four straight pitches, so you know he wasn’t on it yesterday. And Cliff Lee…

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

    May 15, 2013, 6:26 AM EDT

    Andrew McCutchen, Jean Segura

    Pirates 4, Brewers 3: Andrew McCutchen with a walkoff bomb in the 12th. John Axford surrendered the lead in the eighth. He’s got a nifty 9.20 ERA now. Dodgers 2, Nationals 0: Clayton Kershaw stuck out 11 in eight and two-thirds shutout innings. He tossed 132 pitches: the most in his career and the most…

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

    May 9, 2013, 6:56 AM EDT

    Angel Hernandez, Bob Melvin

    Indians 4, Athletics 3: Angel Hernandez said there was not enough evidence with which to overturn the original call of double on Adam Rosales‘ would-be game-tying home run.  Of course, the replay clearly shows that it was a home run, with the ball hitting off the railing above the wall.  This is pretty simple: If…

  8. Jake Peavy cleared to start Wednesday after back injury

    May 6, 2013, 2:14 PM EDT

    Jake Peavy

    Jake Peavy was scratched from starts Thursday and today because of back spasms, but he’ll avoid the disabled list and start Wednesday against the Mets. Peavy threw a bullpen session this morning to test his back and Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports that he’s “good to go.” Peavy told Van Schouwen that…

    As first reported by beat writer Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times, White Sox right-hander Jake Peavy has been ruled out for his scheduled Monday start against the Royals due to lingering stiffness in his lower back. Chris Sale will either be bumped ahead one day to make the start or the White Sox…

    John Danks AP

    John Danks took a big step in his recovery from August shoulder surgery, throwing seven innings at Double-A yesterday. Danks allowed two runs on five hits and one walk, striking out one. He needed just 86 pitches to record 21 outs and Dan Hayes of CSNChicago.com reports that Danks was working at 87-90 miles per…

  11. Jake Peavy scratched from tonight’s start with back spasms

    May 2, 2013, 3:15 PM EDT

    Jake Peavy

    Hector Santiago was supposed to start in place of the injured Gavin Floyd tomorrow, but instead he’ll be needed tonight after the White Sox scratched Jake Peavy from his scheduled start with back spasms. Peavy was off to a very strong start with a 3.38 ERA and 39/6 K/BB ratio in 32 innings, building on…

  12. Padres ready to re-start contract talks with Chase Headley

    May 2, 2013, 10:15 AM EDT

    Chase Headley AP

    After failing to agree to a long-term contract extension with the Padres this offseason Chase Headley explained that the two sides “weren’t on the same page” and added that “this close to free agency, it has to be a good deal for us.” Two months later Corey Brock of MLB.com reports that “Padres executive chairman…

  13. Barry Zito is a reborn Christian, “really excited” about owning and shooting guns

    Apr 22, 2013, 11:03 AM EDT

    Barry Zito

    Barry Zito got tagged with some sort of hippie/playboy/zen master stereotype when he came up with the A’s. Since then most of that has been obscured by talk of his contract, his pitching struggles and then his nice little comeback the past season or so. But his interview in the May “GQ” reveals a much different Barry…

    Toronto made a huge splash this offseason, but general manager Alex Anthopoulos has hinted that he was close to pulling off another big move that fell through. According to Shi Davidi of SportsNet that move would have been trading for White Sox right-hander Jake Peavy. Peavy had a $22 million team option that the White…

    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…

    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…

  17. The Steak is Served. Was it worth it?

    Back in January, Scott Boras said this to ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick regarding his then un-signed free agent clients, Michael Bourn and Kyle Lohse: “People call me all the time and say, ‘Man, your players aren’t signed yet. Well, it doesn’t really matter what time dinner is when you’re the steak.” Now steak is served, and…

    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.

  19. White Sox tab Chris Sale as Opening Day starter

    Mar 16, 2013, 9:05 PM EDT

    Chris Sale

    Via ESPN’s Bruce Levine, as the title suggests: Robin Ventura names Chris Sale opening day starter. Jake Peavy was the other candidate for the honor, but wholeheartedly endorsed sale. Peavy said, “Chris is the best pitcher on the team. Your best guy goes opening day.” Sale, who turns 24 years old in two weeks, finished the…

  20. Jake Peavy: pressure got to the White Sox last year

    Jan 30, 2013, 11:02 AM EDT

    Chuck Garfien of CSNChicago.com spoke with Jake Peavy, who said something you rarely hear ballplayers say: pressure got to the White Sox last year: “I think you saw that when things got on the line and we were the team to beat there, being in first place down the stretch and that pressure, you feel…

    We’ll be updating this one throughout the offseason. Players are listed based on their ranking in the Top 111 Free Agents.

  22. The Mets have increased their offer to R.A. Dickey

    Dec 1, 2012, 1:01 PM EDT

    R.A. Dickey Reuters

    After agreeing to an eight-year, $138 million extension with third baseman David Wright earlier this week, the Mets have turned their attention to 2012 Cy Young Award winner R.A. Dickey. Talks have progressed slowly until now, but ESPN’s Buster Olney reports that the Mets have increased their offer. No word on the specifics of the…

  23. The Mets would want a “monster package” for R.A. Dickey

    Nov 19, 2012, 10:00 AM EDT

    r.a. dickey getty

    That’s the word from Andy Martino: One high-ranking major league executive who spoke recently with Mets officials came away thinking that the team “would want a monster package for (R.A.) Dickey, and if they don’t get it, probably would not trade him.” How you know you collected baseball cards back in he day: you hear…

  24. The Mets have offered R.A. Dickey a two-year extension

    Nov 17, 2012, 12:39 PM EDT

    R.A. Dickey AP

    UPDATE: Martino adds that it’s become clear in negotiations that Dickey will sign for a deal comparable to, but likely less than, Jake Peavy‘s recent two-year, $29 million extension with the White Sox. Sure, there are worries about Dickey’s age and he throws harder than the average knuckleballer, but his asking price doesn’t sound unreasonable…

    Gavin Floyd Getty

    After picking up Gavin Floyd‘s option and signing Jake Peavy to a two-year contract the White Sox have more rotation depth than most teams and new general manager Rick Hahn is hinting that he might shop a starting pitcher for help in other areas. “I suspect given this market for pitchers that is out there…
