    Josh Johnson‘s recovery from a strained triceps has been delayed several times by setbacks, but the right-hander is off the disabled list and back in the Blue Jays’ rotation. Johnson has been on the DL since April 21 and got knocked around in his final rehab start, allowing six runs in 4.2 innings at Triple-A…

    Phillies 7, Brewers 5: Dom Brown homered and tripled and drove in four while Cliff Lee struck out 11 in seven and two-thirds. Philly is only one game behind the Nats right now, you guys. Why? Because … Braves 6, Nationals 3: … the Nats dropped two of three to Atlanta, with B.J. Upton of…

    It’s one step forward, one step back for the Blue Jays. While Josh Johnson is expected to return on Tuesday, the Blue Jays just announced that Brandon Morrow has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a right forearm strain. Morrow left Tuesday’s start against the Braves after two innings with the injury. The…

    Sorry. That headline may have been a bit dramatic. But see, I turn 40 in July. And while I’m generally cool with that — and while I am, in all honestly, in The Best Shape of My Life — it has dawned on me pretty clearly that we are almost to the point where there…

  5. It has come to this for the Blue Jays: Ramon Ortiz is starting tonight

    Ramon Ortiz

    Toronto’s rotation is so wrecked by injuries that the Blue Jays have called up 40-year-old Ramon Ortiz to start tonight against the Red Sox. Seriously, here’s proof from the Blue Jays’ official website and everything: Obviously being 40 years old doesn’t preclude someone from still being a good pitcher, but being 40 years old and…

  7. Yankees sign Ramon Ortiz to minor league deal

    The Yankees never made an attempt to lure Pedro Martinez to the Bronx, but now they can show off the original “Little Pedro.” In need of a little extra pitching depth with David Phelps having made the team, the Yankees signed Ramon Ortiz to a minor league deal, according to CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman. He’ll…

  8. Running down the rosters: San Francisco Giants

    Tim Lincecum, Buster Posey

    Coming off a disappointing 86-76 finish in 2011, the Giants’ big moves this winter were a pair of underwhelming trades: Jonathan Sanchez for Melky Cabrera and Andres Torres plus Ramon Ramirez for Angel Pagan. To say the least, they didn’t make the kind of splash their fans were hoping for (but have come not to…

  9. Giants sign Ramon Ortiz to minor-league contract

    Feb 15, 2012, 3:48 PM EDT

    Colorado Rockies v Los Angeles Dodgers

    Ramon Ortiz has an amazing ability to stick around despite not being an effective pitcher since 2004 and the Giants just announced that they’ve signed the 39-year-old to a minor-league contract that includes an invitation to spring training. Washed up old guys are sort of general manager Brian Sabean’s thing and Ortiz was at least…
