    New York Yankees' Gardner follows through on walk off solo home run to defeat Detroit Tigers during the ninth inning of their MLB American League baseball game in New York

    Yankees 5, Tigers 4: If I told you that Mariano Rivera blew two saves in a three game series you’d probably assume the Yankees had a bad series. Except in this case they won both of the games Mo blew. Baseball is weird. Miguel Cabrera homered off of him again on Sunday — he’s only…

    Asdrubal Cabrera

    Asdrubal Cabrera aggravated his lingering quadriceps injury yesterday and the Indians have placed the shortstop on the disabled list. Mike Aviles will take over as Cleveland’s primary shortstop and 24-year-old Juan Diaz was called up from Triple-A to provide some infield depth, but he was hitting just .211 with a .591 OPS in 52 games…

    May 13, 2013, 12:16 PM EDT

    Lonnie Chisenhall

    “Lonnie Chisenhall seizes third base job with hot spring.” That was the headline in the Cleveland Plain Dealer after Lonnie Chisenhall hit .412 in spring training and manager Terry Francona picked him as the Indians’ starting third baseman. But like so many players who had a “hot spring” this year he struggled when the games…

    Pirates 9, Cardinals 0: Two homers for Russell Martin and a strong start from Jeff Locke. The Pirates — the Pittsburgh Pirates — are in first place in the National League Central. This goes with the Royals being in first place in the AL Central. I predicted each of these teams would be better this…

    Asdrubal Cabrera

    Tonight seems like a bad night to play baseball, as there have been a rash of injuries.

    Nov 9, 2012, 10:47 AM EDT

    iglesias wide

    Boston traded away Mike Aviles in the deal for manager John Farrell and the free agent shortstop class is an extremely weak one, so not surprisingly it looks like the Red Sox are planning to have 22-year-old rookie Jose Iglesias as their starting shortstop in 2013. Nothing is set in stone, of course, but general…
