    Kansas City's Mendoza delivers a pitch against Milwaukee in their MLB baseball game in Kansas City

    Kansas City has released veteran right-hander Luis Mendoza so that he can sign with a team in Japan. Mendoza threw 260 innings for the Royals during the past two seasons, making 40 starts and a dozen relief appearances, but at age 30 he has a 5.39 career ERA and similarly ugly secondary numbers. He’s expected…

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

    St. Louis Cardinals v Cincinnati Reds

    Cardinals 11, Reds 4: I’ll take “Improbable scores for an extra-inning game for $200, Alex.” It was already 7-4 in the top of the 10th when Matt Holliday came to the plate but he hit a grand slam off Curtis Partch to truly ice the game. J.J. Hoover was charged with six of the seven…

    Braves Diamondbacks Baseball

    Braves 10, Diamondbacks 1: Justin Upton went 4 for 5 with a homer and 2 RBI. Chris Johnson went 3 for 4 with a homer and 3 RBI. Martin Prado had a couple of hits and I suppose he was gritty. Gonna say that the first visit to Arizona for the Braves post-trade falls to…

  4. Royals choose Luis Mendoza over Bruce Chen for final rotation spot

    Kansas City's Mendoza delivers a pitch against Milwaukee in their MLB baseball game in Kansas City

    Kansas City has decided on Luis Mendoza as the fifth starter, which means Bruce Chen is headed to the bullpen after leading the Royals in starts, wins, and innings last season. Of course, Chen wasn’t actually much good with a 5.07 ERA. Luke Hochevar was previously shifted to the bullpen by the Royals, so by…

  5. Royals name James Shields as Opening Day starter

    Royals Shields and Davis Baseball

    Making official what was expected, manager Ned Yost announced that James Shields will get the Opening Day start for the Royals. Kansas City gave up a ton to get Shields (and Wade Davis) from Tampa Bay this offseason, parting with a four-player package that included stud outfield prospect Wil Myers, and a huge part of…

  6. Team Mexico, Brewers ace Yovani Gallardo out with groin strain

    Mar 2, 2013, 1:07 PM EDT

    Yovani Gallardo

    Yovani Gallardo was supposed to make a spring start for the Brewers on Sunday and then pitch for Mexico against the United States in the World Baseball Classic. The Brewers, though, have scratched him due to a groin tightness, putting his status for the WBC in doubt. Gallardo’s injury is considered minor. Brewers manager Ron…

  7. Royals misjudge their talent, Wil pay the price

    Dec 9, 2012, 11:58 PM EDT

    Dayton Moore, David Glass

    Royals GM Dayton Moore has told us for years to “trust the process.” For better or worse, he put forth his endgame on Sunday night, sacrificing top prospects Wil Myers and Jake Odorizzi, not to mention third baseman Patrick Leonard and left-hander Mike Montgomery, in order to bring in James Shields and Wade Davis from…

    Rangers 11, Angels 10: Holy schnikes! The Angels jumped out to a 6-0 lead and the fans were booing Yu Darvish and the local nine. Then the comeback. Make that the comebacks. Four runs in the fifth and then single runs in the eighth and ninth to force extras. Then, down by three in the…

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

    Jun 13, 2012, 6:02 AM EDT

    Kansas City's Mendoza delivers a pitch against Milwaukee in their MLB baseball game in Kansas City

    Royals 2, Brewers 1: Luis Mendoza took a no-hitter into the seventh, but it was still close as prodigal Royal Zack Greinke was pretty sharp too, striking out eight and allowing one run over seven innings. Billy Butler‘s RBI single in the eighth was the difference. White Sox 6, Cardinals 1: Paul Konerko is batting…

  10. Royals put Felipe Paulino on disabled list with elbow injury

    Mar 29, 2012, 1:20 PM EDT

    Felipe Paulino

    Felipe Paulino looked like a candidate for a mini-breakout this season after throwing 125 innings with a 4.11 ERA and 119 strikeouts following a trade to the Royals last year, but instead the 28-year-old right-hander was placed on the disabled list with elbow soreness. Manager Ned Yost indicated to Dick Kaegel of MLB.com that the…
