  2. Just a reminder regarding suspensions

    Aug 20, 2012, 3:35 PM EDT

    Michael Pineda

    Back in April, when Delmon Young received a seven game suspension for drunkenly walking around New York and yelling things at people, I was willing — perhaps naively — to believe that some of the suspension was for his public intoxication and that it meant that MLB was finally getting serious about alcohol-related incidents. Unless…

    Talk about a lost season. First the career-threatening shoulder injury now this: Injured Yankees pitcher Michael Pineda was busted for DUI in Tampa, Fla., on a busy road early this morning after a cop spotted his speeding, “weaving” Nissan SUV driving without its headlights on, cops said … The Domnican Republic native’s blood-alcohol level was found…

    Yankees Spring Training

    Pedro Feliciano hasn’t pitched for the Yankees since signing a two-year, $8 million deal in January of 2011, spending nearly two entire seasons on the disabled list with a shoulder injury that required surgery. However, he’s finally seeing some game action in the minors and manager Joe Girardi indicated yesterday that the Yankees are planning…

    Aug 20, 2012, 5:40 AM EDT

    Pirates Cardinals Baseball

    Pirates 6, Cardinals 3: For the second straight year the Pirates play a nineteen inning game. This time, unlike the game against the Braves in which they were royally screwed, the Pirates won. Thank you Pedro Alvarez and Andrew McCutchen who drove in runs in the 19th, Alvarez with a homer. They had to burn…

    Aug 19, 2012, 10:58 PM EDT

    Ichiro Suzuki

    Hiroki Kuroda pitched eight innings of one-run ball and Ichiro Suzuki homered twice as the Yankees topped the Red Sox 4-1 on Sunday night.

  7. Mike Trout might be having the best year in Angels history

    Aug 19, 2012, 3:05 PM EDT

    mike trout ap

    Angels phenom Mike Trout has a good shot at capturing both MVP and Rookie of the Year honors in the American League. He’d be the first do it since Ichiro Suzuki in 2001, and Ichiro was 27 years old at the time. Trout just turned 21. Now for something even more mind-boggling. From the great Sam Miller of…

    Adam Dunn took Royals reliever Tim Collins deep in the eighth inning Saturday for his 400th career home run. He also reclaimed the major league lead with his 35th homer of the year after Josh Hamilton caught him at 34 Wednesday. Dunn became just the eighth player to hit 400 homers in his first 12…

    UPDATE: According to Jack Curry of YES Network, today’s bullpen session went off without a hitch. Sabathia is scheduled to throw another one Tuesday, but he was “emphatic” in saying he’ll return next Friday. 11:45 AM: CC Sabathia landed on the disabled list last week due to left elbow soreness, but he’s aiming to return…

  10. Yankees hit five homers, top Red Sox 6-4

    Aug 17, 2012, 11:58 PM EDT

    Nick Swisher

    The Bronx Bombers, already with 22 more longballs than any other team in the league entering Friday’s action, pounded out five homers Friday night in defeating the Red Sox 6-4. Nisk Swisher went deep twice on the night, and Curtis Granderson and Russell Martin went back-to-back in the second inning. Derek Jeter lined a solo…

  12. Robinson Cano returns, Mark Teixeira sits with sore wrist

    Aug 17, 2012, 6:26 PM EDT

    The Yankees have Robinson Cano back from a sore neck Friday in the opener of a three-game series against the Red Sox, but Mark Teixeira is absent from the lineup due to an inflamed wrist, the LoHud Yankees Blog reports. Teixeira initially injured the wrist on July 29 and missed a couple of games. “It’s…

  13. Why, exactly, is Tommy John’s opinion on Stephen Strasburg relevant?

    Aug 17, 2012, 10:05 AM EDT

    Stephen Strasburg

    Everyone has an opinion on the looming Stephen Strasburg shutdown.  And since the shutdown is driven in part by two-year-old Tommy John surgery, why not ask Tommy John? Colin Cowherd did: “From the time I came back until I quit in 1989, I never missed a start in 13 years. Now, we were archaic back…

  14. Batting practice is a big waste of time

    Aug 17, 2012, 8:51 AM EDT

    Byron Buxton

    Or so says most major leaguers. The New York Times has a great story about that: But despite its almost sacred place in the game, there is one little secret about batting practice: many players think it is a colossal waste of time, a mind-numbing, flaw-producing, strategically empty exercise. Eric Chavez of the Yankees is a…

  15. Felix Hernandez: MLB’s best young pitcher in 20 years

    Aug 15, 2012, 8:49 PM EDT

    Felix Hernandez

    That’s pretty defensible, right. Felix Hernandez debuted at 19, and while he wasn’t great right away — in fact, he was pretty disappointing his first three years — he’s provided a ton of value to the Mariners in going 96-72 with a 3.17 ERA in 230 career starts to date. Baseball-reference WAR rates him as…

  16. Stiff neck keeps Robinson Cano from Yankees lineup

    Aug 15, 2012, 5:55 PM EDT

    Robinson Cano

    It’s not often that Robinson Cano takes a seat, but the All-Star is out of the Yankees lineup on Wednesday due to a stiff neck. Cano has played in all 116 games for the Yankees this year, starting 110 of them at second base. He played in at least 159 games in each of the…

    Aug 15, 2012, 2:07 PM EDT

    Miguel Cabrera

    Miguel Cabrera got to 100 RBI last night. On Wednesday, he reached 30 homers by taking Minnesota’s Cole De Vries deep in his first at-bat. In so doing, he became the first player in Tigers history to reach to hit 30 homers in five straight seasons. Surprisingly enough, just 18 different Tigers have had 30-homer…

  18. Chad Curtis has another charge filed against him

    Aug 15, 2012, 11:02 AM EDT

    Chad Curtis

    In June we learned that Chad Curtis will stand trial in Michigan on five counts of criminal sexual conduct.  Let’s make it an even six: In June, the 43-year-old was ordered to stand trial on charges he inappropriately touched two students at a school where he was a volunteer strength trainer. Barry County prosecutors this week said a…

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

    Yankees Kuroda pitches to Rangers in MLB game in New York

    It was shutout Tuesday, apparently. Let’s tally the goose eggs: Yankees 3, Rangers 0: Hiroki Kuroda with the two-hit shutout. He was masterful, but man, there were a lot of ill-advised Texas swings in the parts of this one I watched. Either Kuroda had them more fooled than someone on the foolingest day of his life…

  20. Miguel Cabrera is first this year to reach 100 RBI

    Aug 15, 2012, 12:20 AM EDT

    Miguel Cabrera

    Tied with Josh Hamilton for the major league lead at 99 before tonight’s action, Miguel Cabrera struck first Tuesday, knocking in two runs in the Tigers’ 8-4 defeat of the Twins. Hamilton was held without an RBI as the Rangers were shutout by the Yankees. Still just 29 years old, Cabrera now has nine 100-RBI…

  21. Hiroki Kuroda tosses two-hit shutout against Rangers

    Aug 14, 2012, 9:58 PM EDT

    Hiroki Kuroda Getty

    The Yankees need a healthy CC Sabathia if they hope to make a legitimate run at the World Series, but Hiroki Kuroda continues to prove that he’s no slouch, either. Kuroda limited the Rangers to just two hits in a complete game 3-0 win tonight at Yankee Stadium. It was his fourth career shutout and…

  22. Derek Lowe notches four-inning save in Yankees debut

    Aug 13, 2012, 10:21 PM EDT

    Derek Lowe

    Making his Yankees debut and his first relief appearance since 2007, Derek Lowe notched his first save in 11 years by throwing four scoreless innings in the Bombers’ 8-2 win over the Rangers on Monday. It was Lowe’s 86th career save. The first 85 all came with the Red Sox from 1998-2001. He moved into…

  23. Mariano Rivera plays long toss. No, he still isn’t coming back this year.

    Aug 13, 2012, 9:31 PM EDT

    Mariano Rivera Reuters

    Every time Mariano Rivera says or does something even moderately encouraging, the Yankees are quick to come out and say that he isn’t coming back this season. Today was no different. According to Steven Miller of MLB.com, Rivera threw in the outfield at Yankee Stadium prior to tonight’s game against the Rangers. Yankees pitching coach…

  24. Even the Yankees appreciated Johnny Pesky

    Aug 13, 2012, 7:07 PM EDT

    Johnny Pesky, Nomar Garciaparra

    The Yankees will hold a moment of silence to honor Red Sox Hall of Famer Johnny Pesky prior to tonight’s game against the Rangers, and Derek Jeter had a great line in remembering  the former shortstop and coach Monday. The Globe’s Peter Abraham has the quote: “He was always so nice to me throughout the…
