Prince Fielder

  1. Robinson Cano picks his AL Home Run Derby team

    Jul 2, 2012, 6:28 PM EDT

    Jose Bautista

    There was no talking Josh Hamilton into taking part in the Home Run Derby, so Robinson Cano went with some pretty good fallbacks Monday: Jose Bautista, Prince Fielder and Mark Trumbo. Bautista leads the AL with 26 homers at the moment, one more than Hamilton. Cano and Trumbo both have 20 apiece, while Fielder lags…

    mlb all-star patch

    Major League Baseball is announcing the All-Star rosters for each league this afternoon during an hour-long special on TBS. We’ll update this post as the names come in: The 2012 MLB All-Star Game is next Tuesday, July 10, at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri.

  3. The final AL All-Star balloting update before the teams are set

    Jun 25, 2012, 2:49 PM EDT

    All Star Game Logo

    There’s still time to vote, but if it ended now, the AL All-Star team would look like so. The only change to a starter over last week’s results: Robinson Cano taking over first place at second base from Ian Kinsler. Downballot, we see A-Rod passing Evan Longoria for third place at third base, a flip-flop…

  4. AL All-Star balloting update: Jose Bautista joins the leaders

    Jun 18, 2012, 6:18 PM EDT

    Jose Bautista

    The latest American League ballot totals are in and the red-hot Jose Bautista has moved into third place in the outfielder voting, with Nelson Cruz dropping out of the lineup to fifth place. Bautista had the AL’s highest vote total last year, but his slow start guarantees he won’t duplicate that feat this year. Instead, it looks…

    Kansas City's Mendoza delivers a pitch against Milwaukee in their MLB baseball game in Kansas City

    Royals 2, Brewers 1: Luis Mendoza took a no-hitter into the seventh, but it was still close as prodigal Royal Zack Greinke was pretty sharp too, striking out eight and allowing one run over seven innings. Billy Butler‘s RBI single in the eighth was the difference. White Sox 6, Cardinals 1: Paul Konerko is batting…

  6. AL All-Star voting updates

    Jun 11, 2012, 4:00 PM EDT

    All Star Game Logo

    The league just announced the latest in the All-Star Game voting for the American League. Here’s where it stands. The only particularly close race right now is for the third outfield slot, which is a three-way deal between Nelson Cruz, Jose Bautista and Adam Jones. Catcher Mike Napoli: 1,640,160 Joe Mauer: 912,997 First Base Prince…

  7. Aroldis Chapman is suddenly human

    Jun 11, 2012, 8:45 AM EDT

    Detroit Tigers v Cincinnati Reds

    Kudos to Dusty Baker for using his best relief pitcher in the eighth inning. But, sadly, it did not work last night as the previously invincible Aroldis Chapman proved, um, vinceable, giving up a lead and paving the way for the Tigers 7-6 victory in Cincinnati last night. The first two hitters reached against Logan…

  8. The Texas Rangers are dominating early All-Star balloting

    Jun 5, 2012, 1:00 PM EDT

    All Star Game Logo

    The first vote-tallies have been released from the All-Star Game. Gentlemen, start your outrage! Texas Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton and Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp are Major League Baseball’s top overall vote-getters in the first balloting figures for the 83rd All-Star Game … Hamilton, a four-time A.L. All-Star, has received 2,587,991 votes as he attempts to make his fifth consecutive…

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

    May 23, 2012, 5:59 AM EDT

    San Diego Padres v St. Louis Cardinals

    Cardinals 4, Padres 0: Tough break for San Diego to have Adam Wainwright figure it out and throw a four-hit shutout while they were in town, but I really do need them to go on a bad skid right now. I’m taking my kids to their first major league game when we go to San…

  10. Matt Kemp day-to-day after MRI confirms hamstring strain

    May 14, 2012, 9:00 PM EDT

    Matt Kemp Getty

    Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports that Matt Kemp is day-to-day after an MRI confirmed the diagnosis of a left hamstring strain. He aggravated the injury during yesterday’s game against the Rockies. Kemp has already insisted that he will not need a stint on the disabled list, but he figures to miss the next couple of…

  11. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    May 7, 2012, 5:44 AM EDT

    Chris Davis

    Orioles 9, Red Sox 6: Just your standard seventeen inning affair in which a first baseman is the winning pitcher, after throwing two shutout innings and and outfielder is the losing pitcher after giving up a three-run homer . Chris Davis shut out the Red Sox for the 16th and 17th innings, striking out two.…

  12. Derrek Lee “definitely” on Brewers’ radar

    May 6, 2012, 11:31 AM EDT

    derrek lee getty

    FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal reported in March that free agent Derrek Lee was open to continuing his career if presented with the right opportunity. Well, that opportunity might finally be here. According to Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe, the Brewers are “definitely” interested in signing Lee to take over as their primary first baseman.…

  13. Mat Gamel diagnosed with torn ACL, season may be over

    May 2, 2012, 5:17 PM EDT

    mat gamel brewers

    UPDATE: General manager Doug Melvin announced that Gamel has a torn ACL, which likely means season-ending surgery. Very tough break for a player who waited to get his shot. ========== Mat Gamel left yesterday’s game after injuring his right knee chasing a foul ball and now Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports that the Brewers first…

  14. Why are we surprised by Ryan Braun’s fast start again?

    May 1, 2012, 12:03 PM EDT

    Ryan Braun

    Ryan Braun hit three homers last night and, after a tumultuous offseason that had many people worrying about his prospects for 2012, he’s right back to MVP form, hitting .294/.347/.647 with seven homers and sporting an OPS+ of 167, which is exactly what he finished with last season. But there is still some surprise about…

  15. Ryan Braun hits three homers then settles for a triple

    May 1, 2012, 1:21 AM EDT

    Ryan Braun

    Ryan Braun hit three homers and then tripled at Petco Park in leading the Brewers to an 8-3 win over the Padres on Monday. Braun struggled this spring while dealing with a possible 50-game steroids suspension that was later overturned, but he’s been locked in since Opening Day. He’s now tied for second in the…

  16. Prince Fielder stole a base last night and it was glorious

    Apr 19, 2012, 1:30 PM EDT

    Prince Fielder

    Prince Fielder has stolen a few bases before. Almost all players have. Sometimes they just give one to you and the official scorer doesn’t call it defensive indifference. But last night in Kansas City Fielder took a lead, took off and beat the throw from Humberto Quintero and it was pretty darn cool to see.…

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

    Apr 19, 2012, 5:45 AM EDT

    Minnesota Twins v New York Yankees

    Twins 6, Yankees 5: Justin Morneau hit two homers. That’s four homers in six games, which hopefully means that Morneau is back to his mashing ways. Jason Marquis, who missed most of spring training when his daughter was seriously injured in a bicycle accident, made his first ever start in Yankee Stadium and got the…

  18. Ryan Braun out of the lineup with chest/ribcage tightness

    Apr 11, 2012, 1:47 PM EDT

    braun ap

    Ryan Braun is out of the Brewers’ lineup for this afternoon’s game because of what the team is calling chest and ribcage tightness, but manager Ron Roenicke told Adam McCalvy of MLB.com that they believed it’s a minor injury. Braun has played at least 150 games in each of his four full seasons in the…

  19. Players with more homers than the Phillies

    Apr 9, 2012, 6:07 PM EDT

    Hunter Pence fans

    Jay Bruce Miguel Cabrera Yoenis Cespedes Corey Hart Omar Infante Alex Avila Carlos Beltran Lucas Duda Prince Fielder Aaron Hill Eric Hosmer Adam LaRoche Matt Kemp Nick Markakis Carlos Pena Pablo Sandoval Carlos Santana Josh Willingham Yeah, I’m trolling a bit. But this has been an ugly offensive display. Not only do the 1-3 Phillies…

  20. Panic comes early to Red Sox Nation

    Apr 9, 2012, 8:56 AM EDT

    Alfredo Aceves, David Ortiz

    Actually, it may not be panic in Red Sox Nation, but it’s starting in the press already, so you have to figure that it’s either a reflection of or a precursor to some amount of overreaction in the fan base. Rob Bradford: three games in, already asking if the Sox should blow up the rotation…

  21. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Apr 9, 2012, 5:50 AM EDT

    Boston Red Sox v Detroit Tigers

    There were only 14 games yesterday. On a Sunday. Because the A’s and Mariners didn’t play thanks to the Japan Series. Look, I don’t care if you want to start the season in Japan, but there should be a federal law against anything less than a full slate of games on a Sunday.  Anyway: Tigers…

  22. Tigers roar back in ninth, 11th to beat Red Sox 13-12

    Apr 8, 2012, 6:03 PM EDT

    Miguel Cabrera

    Alex Avila got barely a sliver of a 2-2 curveball that would have ended the game. On the next pitch, he got a whole lot more of another curve, hitting a walkoff homer to give the Tigers a 13-12 victory over the Red Sox and a three-game sweep in Detroit. Meanwhile, the Red Sox’s worst-case…

  23. Josh Beckett pulled after serving up five home runs to Tigers

    Apr 7, 2012, 6:16 PM EDT

    Josh Beckett Getty

    Perhaps Josh Beckett‘s thumb is a bit more of an issue than originally believed. Beckett was just pulled from his start against the Tigers after tying a career-high by serving up five home runs. This included two homers each by Miguel Cabrera and Prince Fielder, the new 3-4 combo in Detroit’s lineup. Alex Avila hit…

  24. Tigers’ odd defensive alignment includes Ryan Raburn at designated hitter

    Apr 5, 2012, 11:51 AM EDT

    ryan-raburn-tigers

    As expected the Tigers’ defensive alignment for Opening Day is a weird one. Miguel Cabrera, Prince Fielder, and Delmon Young are all in the lineup and yet the designated hitter is … Ryan Raburn, who’d be a better third baseman than Cabrera, a better first baseman than Fielder, and a better left fielder than Young.…

  25. The top storylines of the 2012 season

    Apr 4, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    Rays' Evan Longoria runs to home plate as his teammates crowd around after his 12th inning home run to defeat the Yankees during their American League MLB baseball game in St. Petersburg, Florida

    We have used the word “storylines” around here a whole lot lately. Sorry about that. Until the games start later, it’s all about the narrative.  We can get back to our more natural state — reacting to cool stuff that happens rather than speculating about what will — not long after the Cardinals and Marlins…
