    Indians center fielder Michael Bourn will begin the season on the disabled list with a hamstring injury suffered on March 16, the team announced. Bourn was a big disappointment in the first season of his four-year, $48 million deal, hitting just .263 with a .676 OPS and career-low 23 steals, and then in October he…

    Jan 24, 2013, 9:18 AM EDT

    Arizona Diamondbacks v Milwaukee Brewers - Game 5

    How does one say “Beast Mode” in Japanese? Free-agent outfielder Nyjer Morgan has signed with the Yokohama DeNA BayStars of Japan’s Central League. The team says the 32-year-old Morgan will join the BayStars on a one-year-deal worth $1.6 million. Probably better than he could do in the U.S., where he was likely to be limited to a minor…

    The Brewers and outfielder Carlos Gomez have avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year contract, according to Brewers senior director of media relations Mike Vassallo. Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports that he’ll get $4.3 million, which is more than double the $1,962,000 he earned last year. Gomez was arbitration-eligible for the fourth and final time…

    Melky Cabrera‘s agents, Seth and Sam Levinson of ACES, have been cleared of any wrongdoing in the attempted coverup of Melky Cabrera’s positive test for testosterone following an investigation by the MLB players’ association. In other words, the union has apparently agreed with the notion that former ACES consultant Juan Nunez acted alone in the…

  8. Brewers outright Nyjer Morgan to Triple-A

    Nov 1, 2012, 7:31 PM EDT

    Nyjer Morgan AP

    Just in case there was any doubt that Nyjer Morgan‘s tenure in Milwaukee was coming to an end, the Brewers announced today that they have outrighted the outspoken outfielder to Triple-A Nashville. The moves clears him from the 40-man roster and sets the stage for him to become a free agent. After playing a key…

  9. Tony La Russa holds a grudge against Keith Law

    Sep 17, 2012, 9:13 AM EDT

    Gatorade All-Star Workout Day

    More fun from Tony La Russa’s book.  Not only does he still hold a grudge against Nyjer Morgan, but he holds one against ESPN’s Keith Law. Although, for reasons explained below, it’s a pretty misguided grudge: Per Tony La Russa, he spent his final moments as a Card choked with rage over a Keith Law…

  10. Tony La Russa calls out Nyjer Morgan in his upcoming book

    Sep 16, 2012, 11:27 AM EDT

    Nyjer Morgan

    I’m kind of torn here: I find both Tony La Russa and Nyjer Morgan kind of insufferable, so when one calls out the other — as La Russa does to Morgan in his upcoming book — I’m not sure what to do! “When you play a team 18 times during the regular season, there’s bound…

  11. Player Poll: A-Rod is the phoniest player in the game

    Aug 22, 2012, 3:30 PM EDT

    Alex Rodriguez

    Sports Illustrated continues to trickle out the results of player polling they did. We’ve had the most overrated, the most underrated, the meanest, the most eccentric and the most popular. Now, the phoniest: like you needed to tell me it was gonna be A-Rod? Rodriguez finished first with 26% of the vote, followed by Nick Swisher…

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

    Jun 28, 2012, 5:40 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Dodgers v San Francisco Giants

    Giants 3, Dodgers 0: The season nadir for the Dodgers who got swept by their arch rivals in three straight shutouts and lost their lead in the division. And, to add insult to injury, Andre Ethier got hurt. Wait, that’s adding injury to insult I suppose. Ah, you know what I mean. Oh, and Timmay…

  13. Nyjer Morgan tussles with Reds fan in front row

    Jun 27, 2012, 6:23 PM EDT

    Nyjer Morgan

    Actually, this was more the providence of alter ego “Tony Plush.” Nyjer Morgan attempted to reach into the stands down the right-field line to grab a flyball in Wednesday’s game, got tangled up with a Reds fan and then sort of shoved him off with his glove afterwards. MLB.com has the video. If it ended…

  14. Zack Greinke vs. Chris Sale lives up to hype

    Jun 22, 2012, 11:35 PM EDT

    Zack Greinke

    There was a tremendous pitcher’s duel in Chicago tonight, as the Brewers edged the White Sox 1-0 in 10 innings. With the Brewers scoring in the top of the 10th, Zack Greinke was able to get the win. He allowed three hits in nine innings of work. Closer John Axford, who has been very shaky,…

  15. Norichika Aoki proves to be a big find for the Brewers

    Jun 7, 2012, 6:08 PM EDT

    Norichika Aoki

    Norichika Aoki‘s third big-league homer — coming six innings after his second — was a walkoff blast in the bottom of the 10th inning Thursday, giving the Brewers a 4-3 victory over the Cubs. Aoki ended up with his second straight three-hit game today, making this something of a coming out party against the Cubs.…

  16. Nyjer Morgan is finally on the board

    After getting shut out over the first two months of the season, Brewers’ outfielder Nyjer Morgan is finally on the board. Morgan clubbed a solo homer off Pirates’ right-hander Kevin Correia in the bottom of the first inning tonight, giving him his first RBI of the season. It took Morgan an astounding 138 plate appearances…

  17. Looking at MLB’s least productive positions to date

    May 7, 2012, 6:56 PM EDT

    Xavier Nady

    Nationals left fielders, “led” by Xavier Nady, have amassed an MLB-low .406 OPS in 101 at-bats to date, hitting just .119 with no homers and six RBI. Here’s the list of the worst OPSs by team and position so far, along with the player most responsible for the poor showing. LF Nationals – .406 (.119/.237/.168)…

  18. Ryan Braun returns to Brewers lineup, but Carlos Gomez likely headed for DL

    May 5, 2012, 2:44 PM EDT

    Ryan Braun is back in the Brewers’ lineup after leaving Thursday’s game and sitting out last night with a sore Achilles’ tendon, but Carlos Gomez remains sidelined by a hamstring injury. No official move has been made yet, but Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports that Gomez is almost surely bound for the disabled list tonight…

  19. Nyjer Morgan in a “catmance”

    Mar 27, 2012, 3:45 PM EDT

    Nyjer Morgan

    I have a cat. I have always had cats. I always will. I don’t care what you think about that. Cats rule. If you like this blog, know that about 65% of the posts I do are written with a cat either on my lap or laying on the desk between me and the keyboard.…

  20. Corey Hart out 3-4 weeks following knee surgery

    Mar 6, 2012, 9:31 PM EDT

    corey hart getty

    Corey Hart is expected to miss 3-4 weeks after undergoing successful surgery this morning to repair torn cartilage in his right knee, reports Adam McCalvy of MLB.com. This is the same timetable that was originally estimated by the Brewers over the weekend. Hart hasn’t ruled out the possibility of being ready for Opening Day, but…

  21. Ryan Braun’s return puts Brewers on good footing in NL Central

    Feb 23, 2012, 6:07 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Brewers Ryan Braun slaps hands with teammate Rickie Weeks after hitting a two-run home run against the St. Louis Cardinals in the first inning of Game 1 of the MLB National League Championship Series baseball playoff game in Milwaukee

    In doing the Brewers’ edition of running down the rosters earlier this month, I presented two lineups: one with Ryan Braun and one without him for the 50 games he appeared likely to miss pending the appeal of his PED suspension. Needless to say, the one with the exonerated 2011 NL MVP looked a whole…

  22. Nyjer Morgan plays hockey, is a black guy

    Feb 16, 2012, 8:57 AM EDT

    Arizona Diamondbacks v Milwaukee Brewers - Game 5

    Whenever we post something about Nyjer Morgan and hockey — he was a big time hockey player before he chose to go with baseball — someone comments — completely innocently and benignly — that it is unusual to see a black hockey player. Which, OK. They’re just going with demographic norms here, so it’s defensible.…

  23. Running down the rosters: Milwaukee Brewers

    Feb 12, 2012, 7:00 PM EDT

    rickie weeks ap

    With Prince Fielder‘s departure assured, the last thing the 2011 NL Central champion Brewers needed was to lose Ryan Braun for a third of the season. It’s likely to happen, though, even if his appeal is still pending. The rotation should be strong enough to keep the Brewers in the race while Braun is out,…

  24. Nyjer Morgan returns to hockey roots, appears to have a blast

    Feb 2, 2012, 12:13 AM EDT

    morgan-nhl-120201.standard[1]

    Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Nyjer Morgan took to the ice to play a little hockey on Wednesday, practicing with the San Jose Sharks for about 30 minutes.

    Arizona Diamondbacks v Milwaukee Brewers - Game 5

    We’ve seen Nyjer Morgan cross-check major league catchers in the past, but he’ll have a chance to go back to his roots tomorrow. According to Adam McCalvy of MLB.com, the outspoken outfielder will suit up to practice with his hometown San Jose Sharks. “I’m really excited to get on the ice with the team,” said Morgan.…
