    Kevin Slowey has been diagnosed with a strained flexor tendon in his forearm and the Marlins right-hander is likely out for the rest of the season. Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports that he’ll be completely shut down from throwing for 4-6 weeks, which leaves very little time for Slowey to get healthy and rebuild his…

    At the end of March, the Diamondbacks unceremoniously signed first baseman Paul Goldschmidt to a five-year, $32 million contract extension. Just seven weeks later, that contract is looking like a steal. The 25-year-old entered tonight’s game with ten home runs and a 1.013 OPS, marks that not only put him near the top among first…

  7. Ruben Amaro: Phillies offense “not good enough”

    May 6, 2013, 9:20 PM EDT

    Pittsburgh Pirates v Philadelphia Phillies

    Water is also wet. The Phillies are tied with the Nationals for the third-worst runs per game average in the National League at 3.53. They’re fourth-worst in batting average (.237) and third-worst in on-base percentage (.296) and slugging percentage (.374). Phillies outfielders have the worst combined OPS in the league at .608, well below the…

  8. The MLBPA elects its player reps

    When I had a real job my boss used to call me the “shop steward.” But that was because (a) I was lazy; and (b) he hated unions and thought that laziness was the primary trait of unions. It was a great office. In reality, union representatives do things, all while still having to focus…

  9. Kevin Slowey is drawing some interest

    Nov 17, 2012, 9:50 AM EDT

    Kevin Slowey AP

    Kevin Slowey didn’t pitch at all in the majors this season, but that hasn’t stopped teams from expressing interest. At least if what Jon Paul Morosi of FOXSports.com was told can be believed. Slowey climbed Mount Kilimanjaro with R.A. Dickey last offseason, but he didn’t enjoy nearly the same success in 2012. The Indians picked…

    From beat writer Nick Camino of Cleveland’s WTAM 1100 comes word that the Indians have handed the final spot in their season-opening starting rotation to right-hander Jeanmar Gomez. Gomez won the job by registering a 1.37 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 14/8 K/BB ratio this spring in 19 2/3 Cactus League innings. His competition, Kevin Slowey,…

  11. Running down the rosters: Cleveland Indians

    Feb 18, 2012, 5:04 PM EDT

    Carlos Santana, Chris Perez

    Even after giving up their top two pitching prospects for Ubaldo Jimenez, the Indians couldn’t maintain their hot start last year and lost their last four games to finish under .500 at 80-82. The offseason saw them shopping from the scrap heap, which isn’t unusual, but even as they were forced to pick from largely…

  12. Indians place Fausto Carmona on restricted list

    Fausto Carmona, Roberto Hernandez Heredia

    Fausto Carmona‘s legal situation may drag on well into spring training, but in the meantime the Indians have placed the right-hander on the restricted list after he was arrested in the Dominican Republic for falsifying his identity. Carmona, who was revealed to be Roberto Hernandez Heredia and three years older than his listed age of…

  13. Indians expect Fausto Carmona to miss spring training

    Jan 24, 2012, 1:18 PM EDT

    Fausto Carmona, Roberto Hernandez Heredia

    Odds are that Fausto Carmona, like Leo Nunez before him, won’t do any significant jail time for his arrest on false identity charges, but the pitcher now known as Roberto Hernandez Heredia may have trouble securing a visa and the Indians believe he’ll miss spring training. Manager Manny Acta spoke to the Associated Press, which…

  14. Fausto Carmona was outed following a hush money dispute with the real Fausto Carmona

    Fausto Carmona, Roberto Hernandez Heredia

    Fausto Carmona, whose real name is reportedly Roberto Hernandez Heredia, was arrested in the Dominican Republic on Thursday for allegedly falsifying his identity. We’re slowly learning more details about how he was exposed. ESPN’s Pedro Gomez reported on “Outside the Lines” yesterday that Carmona was outed several weeks ago on a popular radio show in Santo…

  15. Indians acquire Kevin Slowey from Rockies for Zach Putnam

    Jan 20, 2012, 4:16 PM EDT

    Kevin Slowey

    Last month the Rockies acquired Kevin Slowey from the Twins and penciled him into their rotation, but after picking up more pitching in the Seth Smith trade with the A’s they decided Slowey was no longer needed. Jon Paul Morosi of FOXSports.com reports that the Rockies have traded Slowey to the Indians for pitching prospect…

  16. R.A. Dickey is back from Mount Kilimanjaro

    Jan 20, 2012, 11:01 AM EDT

    RA Dickey

    R.A. Dickey returned to the United States on Tuesday after successfully reaching the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro last week. Dickey’s former teammate and current Rockies right-hander Kevin Slowey and Mets bullpen catcher Dave Raccaniello also participated in the climb, which was part of an effort to raise money and awareness for the Bombay Teen Challenge, an organization dedicated…

  17. R.A. Dickey has reached the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro

    Jan 14, 2012, 2:45 PM EDT

    Kilimanjaro

    As we mentioned last week, R.A. Dickey (and Kevin Slowey, but no one seems to want to mention him) has been chronicling his ascent of Mount Kilimanjaro for the New York Times.  He has just put up another installment. This one is important. He has reached the peak. Doing so wasn’t easy. As the climb…

  18. Twins sign Jason Marquis to one-year, $3 million contract

    Dec 22, 2011, 3:04 PM EDT

    Jason Marquis

    Minnesota has filled the final spot in its rotation with Jason Marquis, signing the veteran right-hander to a one-year deal worth $3 million. By replacing Michael Cuddyer and Jason Kubel with Josh Willingham and Ryan Doumit the Twins saved a ton of money for 2012 and beyond, but they also sliced their payroll from $115…

  19. Rockies acquire Kevin Slowey from Twins for Daniel Turpen

    Dec 8, 2011, 1:45 PM EDT

    Kevin Slowey

    UPDATE: Now that the Rule 5 draft is over the player to be named later has been revealed as Double-A right-hander Daniel Turpen, a side-arming reliever who’s a marginal prospect at best. ========== Kevin Slowey, who fell out of favor in Minnesota after being demoted from the rotation to the bullpen in spring training, has…

  20. Twins scribes want Kevin Slowey’s guts on a stick

    Dec 6, 2011, 3:28 PM EDT

    Kevin Slowey

    For an outsider like me, it’s hard to see just what it is about Kevin Slowey that causes all of the bulging neck veins at the Minneapolis Star-Tribune. But it seems like the entire Twins press box is rejoicing his departure in this morning’s trade with the Rockies. Here’s Jim Souhan’s take: Slowey, we hardly…

  21. Rockies and Reds discuss Huston Street-for-Edinson Volquez deal

    The Rockies might have less of a sense of urgency to get a deal done after acquiring Kevin Slowey from the Twins, but Troy Renck of the Denver Post reported this morning that they have had discussions about a possible deal that would send Huston Street to the Reds for Edinson Volquez. Street has a…
