    Do the Diamondbacks have any players other teams will want at the trade deadline?

  2. Oliver Perez’s uniform a point of contention in Friday’s game against the Phillies

    Apr 26, 2014, 10:20 AM EDT

    Oliver Perez, Mike Harkey

    First, the umpires nab Michael Pineda for pine tar. Then they get Oliver Perez for having slits in the sleeves of his undershirt. What’s next?! Where do you draw the line?!

    Does winning on Opening Day mean anything? I dunno, ask Oakland and Seattle.

  4. Diamondbacks close to signing Oliver Perez

    Mar 7, 2014, 4:17 PM EDT

    Seattle Mariners v New York Yankees

    Oliver Perez is one of the best unsigned free agents and Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com says that’s about to change, reporting that the left-handed reliever is close to a multi-year deal with the Diamondbacks. Arizona had already invested an awful lot of resources into the bullpen even before bringing in Perez, who went from being…

  5. 2014 Free Agent Tracker

    Dec 25, 2013, 12:26 AM EDT

    MLB: Yankees-Brian McCann Press Conference

    Here’s the rundown of where this winter’s top 150 free agents are landing, continuously updated throughout the offseason. Re-signings are posted in red, while players signing with new teams are in blue. Stars denote players who received qualifying offers and thus will cost their new team a draft pick if they sign elsewhere. (Non-tenders have…

  6. Report: Multiple teams eyeing Jonathan Sanchez

    Dec 15, 2013, 9:20 PM EDT

    Jonathan Sanchez

    According MLB Daily Dish’s Chris Cotillo, Jonathan Sanchez has narrowed his potential list of employers to three teams after seven or eight indicated interest. Cotillo’s source indicates there are multiple offers on the table. Sanchez started the 2013 season with the Pirates, but was released in May after posting an 11.85 ERA in 13.2 innings…

  7. Nationals interested in reliever Eric O’Flaherty

    Dec 5, 2013, 7:30 PM EDT

    O'Flaherty_Eric

    The Nationals are on the lookout for a left-handed reliever and Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post reports that former Braves reliever Eric O’Flaherty is their latest target. O’Flaherty required Tommy John surgery on his left elbow this May and is expected to miss at least the first month of the 2014 season, but that…

  8. Nationals “have significant interest” in Oliver Perez

    Nov 15, 2013, 2:24 PM EDT

    Seattle Mariners v New York Yankees

    At this point the Nationals have been linked to basically every free agent reliever who throws the ball left-handed and the latest is Oliver Perez, with Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post reporting that they “have significant interest.” Perez was awful in 2009 and 2010, and then out of the majors completely in 2011, but…

  9. HardballTalk’s Top 150 Free Agents for 2014

    Nov 1, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Robinson Cano

    This year’s annual free agents column has expanded to a top 150, though I’m writing up just the top 55 (it was going to be 50, but I couldn’t help myself). The rest are presented in a list. Not included are players whose contract options are sure to be exercised. Players are ranked based not…

  10. Despite swarm of bees, Felix Hernandez sets record with 10 strikeouts in four innings

    Sep 22, 2013, 6:45 PM EDT

    Felix Hernandez

    This afternoon’s series finale between the Mariners and Angels was delayed for 23 minutes in the third inning due to a swarm of bees in the outfield. That didn’t stop Mariners starter Felix Hernandez from putting on a show in his first start since suffering a strained oblique. Hernandez punched out 10 Angel batters in…

  11. Tom Wilhelmsen out as Mariners closer

    Aug 2, 2013, 7:45 PM EDT

    Tom Wilhelmsen

    Last night’s soul-crushing loss to the Red Sox resulted in a demotion for Mariners closer Tom Wilhelmsen. The 29-year-old right-hander entered with a 7-2 lead, seemingly an easy finish to an easy game. He faced four hitters, allowing a walk, a single, a double, and another walk before being lifted. As other Mariner relievers —…

  12. Great Moments in knowing your right from your left: Mariners’ skipper signals for the wrong reliever

    Aug 2, 2013, 9:06 AM EDT

    Tampa Bay Rays v Boston Red Sox

    Missed this from the Red Sox-Mariners game last night.  It seems that during that epic ninth inning meltdown, Mariners acting manager Robby Thompson messed up when he was making a pitching change.  He wanted to bring in right-handed reliever Yoervis Medina to take over for Tom Wilhelmsen, but he accidentally signaled with his left arm. That…

  13. And That Happened: Thursday’s scores and highlights

    Aug 2, 2013, 6:18 AM EDT

    Jonathan Papelbon

    Giants 2, Phillies 1: A few days ago Jonathan Papelbon watched his team lose another game and said “I definitely didn’t come here for this.” Well, they didn’t show up at the ballpark yesterday expecting Papelbon to give up four singles and blow the lead. Again. Cole Hamels‘ eight shutout innings were for naught and…

  14. Red Sox score six in ninth to beat Mariners 8-7

    Aug 2, 2013, 12:50 AM EDT

    Jonny Gomes

    The Red Sox sent 10 men to the plate in a six-run ninth to overcome a terrific effort from Felix Hernandez and defeat the Mariners 8-7 on Thursday, completing a three-game sweep at Fenway Park. According to the win expectancy data at Fangraphs, the Red Sox entered the ninth with exactly a one percent chance…

  15. Winners and losers at the trade deadline

    Jul 31, 2013, 5:50 PM EDT

    Jake Peavy

    Given how disappointing this afternoon’s trade deadline proved to be, it’s only fair that the annual winners and losers column is a little lopsided. Let’s get right to it: Winners Red Sox: I didn’t like the idea of Boston giving up top prospects for Jake Peavy because I just didn’t see him being a big…

  16. Orioles “actively pursuing” Mike Morse and Oliver Perez

    Jul 31, 2013, 1:03 PM EDT

    morse getty

    The O’s could use a DH/corner bat and the Mariners have one. So this would make sense: Orioles are actively pursuing both Mike Morse and Oliver Perez of the #Mariners today, accdg to a source. Would like a combo deal. — Dan Connolly (@danconnollysun) July 31, 2013   As for Perez, the Orioles’ greatest strength…

  17. Oliver Perez has been reborn as a reliever

    Jun 15, 2013, 7:55 PM EDT

    Seattle Mariners v Oakland Athletics

    When the Mets acquired left-hander Oliver Perez in a trade with the Pirates at the 2006 trade deadline, they thought they were getting a top-of-the-rotation pitcher. Five tumultuous seasons later, Perez’s tenure as a Met was meekly ended during spring training prior to the 2011 season having compiled a 4.71 ERA over 520 innings in…

  18. Second game in reconfigured Safeco features eight homers

    Apr 10, 2013, 1:48 AM EDT

    Michael Morse

    Yeah, but new walls or not, it’s hard to slow down offensive juggernauts like the Astros and Mariners possess. In the second game in Safeco since the walls were brought in, those two teams combined for eight homers in a 16-9 Houston victory. Here’s the list: Houston Chris Carter x2 Jose Altuve J.D. Martinez Marwin…

    Zack Greinke, Ned Colletti, Magic Johnson

    We’ll be updating this one throughout the offseason. Players are listed based on their ranking in the Top 111 Free Agents. At the bottom is a listing of free agents who signed before the ranking came out, and we’ll be adding signings of players who didn’t make the top 111 as they come in. (Update:…

  20. Jason Bay’s contract with the Mariners is not fully guaranteed

    Dec 6, 2012, 9:45 PM EDT

    Jason Bay

    Some were surprised to see that Jason Bay was getting a $1 million deal from the Mariners after he accepted a buyout from the Mets about a month ago, but it turns out that his contract isn’t fully guaranteed. Geoff Baker of the Seattle Times reports that if Bay doesn’t make the team out of…

  21. Mariners re-sign Oliver Perez to one-year contract

    Nov 3, 2012, 10:26 PM EDT

    oliver perez getty

    From MLB.com’s Greg Johns comes word that the Mariners have re-signed left-hander Oliver Perez to a one-year major league deal for the 2013 season. Financial terms of the agreement aren’t yet available. Perez reinvented himself as reliever this past season on a non-guaranteed minor league deal with the M’s, posting a 2.12 ERA across 29 2/3…

  22. Randy Levine and Scott Boras disagree about the Rafael Soriano negotiations

    Oct 31, 2012, 3:30 PM EDT

    Randy Levine

    Jon Heyman is a braver man than I am. He’s digging into what has to be a fairly miserable conversation: a dispute between Yankees President Randy Levine and Super Agent Scott Boras about money. Don’t you wish you were on the line for that kind of thing between those kinds of guys? The upshot: Levine…

  23. Mets could have new deals with David Wright and R.A. Dickey by the World Series

    Oct 6, 2012, 12:07 PM EDT

    83rd MLB All-Star Game

    Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said before Wednesday’s season finale against the Marlins that his highest priority this offseason is to work out new deals with David Wright and R.A. Dickey. He’s determined to stay true to his word. According to Mike Puma of the New York Post, a baseball source said that it’s “conceivable”…

    UPDATE: The he-said, he-said is over. Yocum has reversed himself. Call off the dogs. 5: 54 PM: As of now we have a he-said, he-said when it comes to Dr. Lewis Yocum and the Washington Nationals.

    Ben Sheets

    It’s getting to be that time of year, so here is the first of two stabs at a Top 111 free agents list. The other will come shortly after the World Series concludes. Players are ranked based on how I believe teams perceive them, not how I view them myself. Essentially, I rank the players…
