Nate Schierholtz

  1. The Cubs are drawing interest for Nate Schierholtz

    Nate Schierholtz

    Buster Olney says: The Cubs are getting solid interest on Nate Schierholtz, one of the few good hitters on the market. More than likely he gets traded. — Buster Olney (@Buster_ESPN) July 30, 2013   Schierholtz has been one of the least talked about bats at the deadline, but his bat has been a good…

    The defending World Series champs are toast. Madison Bumgarner threw eight scoreless innings, allowing only four hits and striking out seven, but the Giants managed no runs and fell to the Cubs 1-0 on Saturday night at San Francisco’s AT&T Park. Nate Schierholtz, the former Giants outfielder, played the hero for Chicago with his game-winning…

  3. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    Jul 25, 2013, 7:00 AM EDT

    Tampa Bay Rays' Price pitches against Boston Red Sox  during MLB American League Baseball game in Boston

    Rays 5, Red Sox 1: David Price tossed a one-run, five hit complete game, with a solo homer by Mike Napoli the only real blemish. He needed a mere 97 pitches. That’s what happens when you throw 72 strikes. The Sox and Rays are once again tied in the loss column. Dodgers 8, Blue Jays…

  4. Pirates “studying deals” for Alex Rios, Nate Schierholtz

    Jul 14, 2013, 1:41 PM EDT

    Phil Rogers of the Chicago Tribune has the scoop: Looking to upgrade in right field, the Pirates are studying deals for Nate Schierholtz and Alex Rios. It is possible that they’ll make a move sooner rather than later, as they are tied for the NL Central lead while last in OPS at the position (slash line…

  5. Play of the Day: the Mets go back to Little League

    Jun 16, 2013, 11:15 PM EDT

    Chicago Cubs v. New York Mets

    Though they came back in grand fashion against Cubs reliever Carlos Marmol, the Mets had staked the Cubs to a 3-0 lead in the fifth after a litany of errors reminiscent of a Little League game. With runners on first and second and two outs in the top of the fifth against Mets starter Jeremy…

  6. Theo Epstein is unhappy with the Cubs’ OBP

    May 26, 2013, 7:50 PM EDT

    Chicago Cubs President of Baseball Operations Theo Epstein speaks at a news conference at Wrigley Field in Chicago

    Cubs President of Baseball Operations Theo Epstein has a number of reasons to be unhappy with his 19-30 club, but the one that really sticks out to him is the club’s lagging on-base percentage, which was under .300 prior to this afternoon’s game against the Reds. At .299, their mark was ahead of only the…

  7. Breathe easy, everyone: Melky Cabrera is going to get his World Series ring

    May 13, 2013, 2:30 PM EDT

    The Giants’ 2012 World Series win didn’t feature any contributions from Melky Cabrera, but their 2012 regular season sure did. And it’s not going unrecognized: Cabrera will receive his championship ring when the Giants visit the Blue Jays, Cabrera’s new team, on Tuesday. Manager Bruce Bochy performed a similar act last month with Chicago Cubs’…

  8. Cubs survive another Carlos Marmol scare, beat Pirates 3-2

    Apr 4, 2013, 3:35 PM EDT

    Carlos Marmol

    After Carlos Marmol‘s shaky showing got him pulled from a save chance on Opening Day, the Cubs reiterated that he was still their closer. Marmol, though, wasted no time in putting that to the test. Handed another 3-0 lead on Wednesday — thanks to a Nate Schierholtz homer providing two insurance runs in the top…

Up next: The Chicago Cubs. The Big Question: Is Theo Epstein pushing the Cubs any closer to contention? He most definitely is,…

  10. Report: Cubs “on the fringes” for free agent outfielder Michael Bourn

    Feb 11, 2013, 8:09 PM EDT

    bourn getty

    UPDATE: So much for that. Carrie Muskat, who covers the Cubs for MLB.com, writes that Bourn to the Cubs is “not happening.” Could this be a case of Bourn’s agent, Scott Boras, making a last-ditch effort to create a market for his client? 8:06 PM: There’s been plenty of chatter over the past couple of…

  11. The Yankees are still interested in Scott Hairston

    Dec 28, 2012, 11:03 AM EDT

    Scott Hairston

    In past years I would not make much of an effort to post about the Yankees’ possible interest in role players, but in a world where their failure to land guys like Jeff Keppinger and Nate Schierholtz actually upsets people, this is relevant: The Yankees starting outfield is Brett Gardner, Curtis Granderson and Ichiro Suzuki ……

    We’ll be updating this one throughout the offseason. Players are listed based on their ranking in the Top 111 Free Agents.

  13. Cubs sign Nate Schierholtz to one-year, $2.25M contract

    Dec 5, 2012, 9:43 PM EDT

    schierholtz getty

    From ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick comes word that the Cubs agreed to a one-year contract on Wednesday night with free agent outfielder Nate Schierholtz. Financial terms of the deal haven’t been disclosed. Schierholtz attracted a pretty strong market after being non-tendered in late November by the Phillies, at one point drawing interest from nine different teams —…

  14. Nate Schierholtz “getting a lot of play” from AL East teams

    Dec 5, 2012, 6:20 PM EDT

    schierhotlz getty

    Pretty steamy headline up there, is it not? ESPN’s Buster Olney reported earlier today that the Yankees were the “early frontrunner” for free agent outfielder Nate Schierholtz. But they may have some competition within their own division. According to Jerry Crasnick of ESPN, the 28-year-old has been “getting a lot of play” from American League…

  15. The Yankees are the front runners for Nate Schierholtz

    Dec 5, 2012, 12:30 PM EDT

    nate schierholtz getty

    There was a time when no one would think much of the Yankees talking to a non-tendered guy like Nate Schierholtz as particularly newsworthy, but in the brave new world in which the Yankees actually have a budget and are trying to do things economically, this is news: The Yankees are the early frontrunner in Nate…

  16. Nate Schierholtz drawing interest from nine teams

    Dec 2, 2012, 5:20 PM EDT

    nate schierholtz getty

    From ESPN’s Buster Olney comes word that nine teams called the representatives for outfielder Nate Schierholtz in the first 12 or so hours after he was non-tendered on Friday evening by the Phillies. The Yankees, who are in the hunt for a right fielder, are one of the teams that expressed quick interest. Schierholtz batted…

  17. Breaking down Friday’s non-tenders: Wilson, Reynolds and more

    Brian Wilson Getty

    Here’s the official list of Friday’s non-tenders: American League Angels: none Athletics: OF Jermaine Mitchell Mitchell had already been designated for assignment. He had a breakthrough 2011 in Triple-A, hitting .302/.401/.453, but he regressed to .252/.345/.386 for Sacramento last season. Astros: none Blue Jays: C Bobby Wilson Wilson is minor league contract material. The 29-year-old…

  18. Giants probably not a playoff team without Melky Cabrera

    Aug 15, 2012, 3:14 PM EDT

    Melky Cabrera

    With Melky Cabrera done for at least the rest of the regular season after testing positive for enhanced testosterone levels, the Giants may well fall short of the playoffs this year. Though perhaps that’s for the best, given that the cheater is a big reason they’re tied for the NL West lead at the moment. Cabrera…

  19. Nate Schierholtz broke his toe

    Aug 13, 2012, 12:31 PM EDT

    Nate Schierholtz

    The Phillies have placed Nate Schierholtz on the DL with a fractured toe. There’s no timetable for his return, but it’s not like there’s any urgency in Philly at the moment. Schierholtz has seven hits in 32 at-bats with a homer, a double and two RBIs since coming over from the Giants.  Hector Luna has been…

  20. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    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…

  21. Winners and losers at the trade deadline

    Jul 31, 2012, 4:49 PM EDT

    Rangers celebrate

    One person’s thoughts on who made out best and worst at the trade deadline. Winners Texas Rangers: GM Jon Daniels wasn’t interested in parting with third baseman Mike Olt, much less shortstop Jurickson Profar, in order to counter the Angels’ Zack Greinke pickup, but he was able to keep his best prospects and land Ryan…

    Jul 31, 2012, 4:35 PM EDT

    Lets make a deal

    The 2012 non-waiver trade deadline has come and gone. Here’s your summary of who went where and for whom: 7/31/12: The Indians Acquire 1B Lars Anderson from the Red Sox for RHP Steven Wright. Quick Take: Anderson is a once-promising slugger who has seemingly run out of gas on his third time through Triple-A. Wright…

  23. Phillies rebuild not off to a smashing start

    Jul 31, 2012, 2:30 PM EDT

    Ruben Amaro, Charlie Manuel

    Phillies GM Ruben Amaro was burnt the first time he ever had to sell, giving Cliff Lee away to the Mariners for three modest prospects, none of whom have made any sort of contribution so far, after the 2009 season. Take two isn’t looking like a big success either, as he doesn’t appear to have…

  24. Hunter Pence traded to the Giants

    Jul 31, 2012, 12:29 PM EDT

    Hunter Pence

    UPDATE: Andrew Baggarly of CSNBayArea.com reports that the deal is done and about to be announced. 1:32 PM: Heyman reports that Nate Schierholtz is in the deal too. That at least gives the Phillies and outfielder. Heyman likewise says that a pitcher could be going to Philly, making this a 3-for-1 deal. UPDATE:  The pitcher…

  25. Nate Schierholtz may or may not have demanded a trade

    Jul 31, 2012, 9:12 AM EDT

    San Francisco Giants v Los Angeles Dodgers

    Conflicting reports about Giants outfielder Nate Schierholtz. Jon Heyman reported that he formally requested a trade. He tells Andrew Baggarly, however, that’s not so: “I haven’t said one thing about anything other than baseball in two weeks,” said Schierholtz, who told the San Francisco Chronicle earlier this month that he would be open to a change of…
