    Derek Jeter

    Here’s a look at the production all 30 teams are getting from their top two hitters to date, ranked by OPS. Yankees – 1.074 Cardinals – .931 Rangers – .851 Mets – .835 Rays – .823 Red Sox – .823 Astros – .789 Braves – .768 Nationals – .751 Giants – .745 Cubs – .738…

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

    Apr 23, 2012, 5:45 AM EDT

    Texas Rangers v Detroit Tigers

    Rangers 3, Tigers 2: If only there was some form of technology that could rectify bad calls. Some magical device that could allow officials to see what really happened on a baseball field when the umpires miss it. A bit of sorcery that could put right what was wrong and prevent a game from being…

  3. Settling the Score: Saturday’s results

    Apr 8, 2012, 8:34 AM EDT

    Colorado Rockies pitcher Moyer, 49, makes a pitch against Houston Astros' Schafer in the first inning of their MLB National League game in Houston

    Jamie Moyer‘s 2012 debut was less than stellar. Making his first start since the 2010 season, the 49-year-old left-hander surrendered five hits and four runs (three earned) in five innings Saturday evening against a light-hitting Astros lineup. Moyer’s control was fine — he walked just one and fanned two — but his slow-moving deliveries looked…

  4. Jordan Schafer leaves Astros camp to see hand specialist

    Mar 27, 2012, 1:20 PM EDT

    Jordan Schafer

    Jordan Schafer, who injured his left hand making a catch in the outfield on March 18 and hasn’t played since, has left Astros camp to be examined by a hand specialist in Atlanta. Schafer has a long history of left hand injuries that have stalled his career in past seasons and Brian McTaggart of MLB.com…

    Mar 4, 2012, 6:49 PM EDT

    Stephen Strasburg

    Stephen Strasburg held the Astros scoreless into the third, only to give up two runs in 2 2/3 innings in his spring debut. Strasburg struck out three and walked none. He allowed a solo homer to Chris Snyder and a double to Jordan Schafer in the third. Schafer came around to score off Tom Gorzelanny…

  6. 2012 OPS projections: top 10 center fielders

    Feb 12, 2012, 9:00 PM EDT

    Matt Kemp

    It’s an AL East-heavy top 10 in the center field projections: .903 – Matt Kemp (Dodgers) – 597 AB – .986 in 2011 .847 – Curtis Granderson (Yankees) – 574 AB – .916 in 2011 .845 – Jacoby Ellsbury (Red Sox) – 612 AB – .928 in 2011 .845 – Andrew McCutchen (Pirates) – 560…

  7. Running down the rosters: Houston Astros

    Feb 9, 2012, 12:30 AM EDT

    Wandy Rodriguez

    The 2012 Astros are pretty sure bets to lose 100 games, with the big question being whether they’ll top last year’s mark of 106 losses. That achievement will be tied to their ability to move the contracts of Wandy Rodriguez, Brett Myers and Carlos Lee. Ideally, they’d be able to sell off at least the…

  8. MLB’s worst position situations: 2012 edition

    Feb 2, 2012, 2:58 PM EDT

    Jason Bourgeois, Jordan Schafer, Brian Bogusevic

    After declaring the Houston Astros in position of the game’s worst rotation earlier today, I thought it’d be fun to look at the rest of the worst. So here are MLB’s most gruesome position situations heading into the 2012 season: Catcher: Dodgers – A.J. Ellis, Matt Treanor, Tim Federowicz The Dodgers let the slugging-heavy Rod Barajas…

  9. Braves and Michael Bourn avoid arbitration for $6.845 million

    Jan 17, 2012, 12:37 PM EDT

    Michael Bourn

    The Braves and center fielder Michael Bourn avoided arbitration today, agreeing on a $6.845 million deal for 2012. That’s a raise from the $4.4 million he made in 2011. He’ll be a free agent after the season. Bourn was acquired from Houston last summer in exchange for Jordan Schafer and some minor leaguers. Expected to…

  10. Jordan Schafer was just ahead of his time, man

    Dec 30, 2011, 1:00 PM EDT

    Jordan Schafer

    Lots of hand wringing when Astros’ center fielder Jordan Schafer was arrested with marijuana a couple of months ago. However, Courtland Milloy’s column in the Washington Post — passing along the results of a study published in the American Journal of Sports Medicine — may show that it wasn’t all bad, man: “Athletes under the…

  11. Jordan Schafer enters a diversion program

    Nov 28, 2011, 11:32 AM EDT

    Jordan Schafer

    Astros outfielder Jordan Schafer was arrested  in Florida back in October for possession of marijuana and paraphernalia.  At a Cheesecake Factory. Just, I don’t know either, but that’s what he did.  Looks like he’s going to fly clear of serious consequences, however, as Zach Levine of the Houston Chronicle reports that he has opted for Florida’s pretrial intervention program. If…
