The Angels just got dealt a potentially-major blow. Garrett Richards — who has suddenly developed into an ace this season at age 26 — was taken off on a stretcher Wednesday evening at Boston’s Fenway Park after suffering what looked to be a very serious right knee injury in the bottom of the second inning of his start against the host Red Sox.

A bases-loaded walk helped the Tigers win a game. A walkoff plunking gave the Cardinals the win. And the crew in Chicago couldn’t get a tarp on the field. Can anyone around here play this game anymore?

Suddenly the American League West is all tied up. Albert Pujols and Howie Kendrick both went yard and Matt Shoemaker pitched well over 5 2/3 innings as the Angels topped the Rangers 5-4 on Saturday night in Arlington, Texas. The A’s, meanwhile, got a third straight poor start from Sonny Gray and lost 4-3 to the Braves at Atlanta’s Turner Field.

Looking to add more bullpen help after the Jason Grilli-for-Ernesto Frieri swap worked out so horribly, the Pirates have acquired right-hander John Axford from the Indians.

Yoenis Cespedes went yard in a big spot to notch his first home run as a member of the Red Sox.

A brutal development here for the Angels. According to Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register, left-handed starter Tyler Skaggs needs Tommy John reconstructive surgery to repair a ligament tear in his throwing elbow.

Albert Pujols mercifully put an end to Saturday night’s Red Sox vs. Angels marathon with this opposite-field walkoff home run off Boston right-hander Brandon Workman …

Garrett Richards is working on something special against the Red Sox in his Saturday night start at home.
Aug 8, 2014, 5:49 PM EST
Frieri posted a 7.34 ERA in 48 appearances, which is shockingly bad for a 28-year-old who came into this season with a career 2.76 ERA and 315 strikeouts in 231 innings.

Wilson had a 3.34 ERA on June 19. Since then he’s allowed 32 runs in 24 innings with a 21/14 K/BB ratio and .394 opponents’ batting average.

Joe Kelly gave his old mates fits. Well, maybe he gave them fits before too. Maybe they weren’t his mates. Maybe there were long-simmering disputes between him and the Cardinals about politics and religion and things. We can’t know!

Welcome to the Tigers, David Price. Welcome to the big leagues Javier Baez.

This afternoon the Yankees declined to pull back Matt Thornton when he was claimed on waivers by the Nationals, giving away the 37-year-old left-hander. And now to replace him in the bullpen they’ve called up 34-year-old left-hander Rich Hill from Triple-A.

He can be so good and so bad in so short a period of time.
Aug 5, 2014, 6:38 AM EST
Don’t look now, but the Angels are only a game back of the A’s in the AL West. And, thus, a game away from having the best record in baseball.
Aug 4, 2014, 6:15 PM EST
Mike Morin has posted a 2.36 ERA and 40/10 K/BB ratio over 42 innings during his rookie season.
