    David Price, Evan Longoria

    Dirk Hayhurst’s latest piece for Sports on Earth doesn’t name any names, but it hardly needs to. In it, he indicates that the March 2011 incident in which a house shared by Rays players Evan Longoria, David Price and Reid Brignac was robbed also featured a “pillow-case-sized” bag of weed.

    Puig Out

    I took the kids to the Dodgers-Reds game and they saw Yasiel Puig flop about three feet from the second base bag on a caught stealing. Still: beats working.

    Philadelphia Phillies v Houston Astros

    After releasing Ronny Cedeno on Tuesday, CSN Philly’s Jim Salisbury reports that the Phillies have re-signed the infielder to a minor league deal and assigned him to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

    Phillies infielder Freddy Galvis had an abscess removed from his left knee on Wednesday. After the procedure, doctors found a staph infection, but that wasn’t the worst news. CSN Philly’s Jim Salisbury reports that Galvis has come down with Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, more commonly known as MRSA. Simply put, Galvis has an antibiotic-resistant infection. Galvis will…

    Sure, the big news about Alex Rodriguez joining Twitter this week is that he almost immediately managed to piss off Yankees general manager Brian Cashman, but as a Twitter addict I’m more interested in who A-Rod has chosen to follow. So far he’s followed 41 accounts, including lots of Yankees-related stuff like the Yankees’ official…

    The Yankees have acquired utilityman Brent Lillibridge from the Cubs for cash considerations or a player to be named later, per the Cubs’ official Twitter. In 24 plate appearances, the 29-year-old Lillibridge was hitting — brace yourself — .042/.042/.042. In Iowa with the Cubs’ Triple-A affiliate, where he spent most of his time, Lillibridge hit…

    Tampa Bay Rays v New York Yankees

    Last week the Rays cleared two 40-man roster spots by designating infielders Reid Brignac and Elliot Johnson for assignment. They traded Johnson to the Royals as the player to be named later from the big James Shields swap and now they’ve traded Brignac to the Rockies for a PTBNL or cash considerations. It makes sense…

Brignac ranked among Baseball America‘s top 100 prospects in 2007, 2008, 2009, and 2010, but has hit just .227 with a…

    According to beat writer Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times, there was “some chatter last week” around the Rays organization that a trade could be in the works involving utility infielder Reid Brignac.

    Apr 4, 2012, 11:51 AM EDT

    B.J. Upton, Evan Longoria, Ben Zobrist, Reid Brignac, Sean Rodriguez

    Reid Brignac‘s foot injury opened the door for Sean Rodriguez to overtake him on the Rays’ shortstop depth chart and sure enough manager Joe Maddon announced that Rodriguez will open the season as the primary starter. Brignac (.742 OPS) and Rodriguez (.743 OPS) had nearly identical production this spring, but Brignac was limited to just…

    Dustin McGowan

    Earlier this week the Blue Jays gave Dustin McGowan a two-year contract extension worth at least $4 million in guaranteed money despite the oft-injured right-hander throwing a grand total of 21 (terrible) innings since 2009. In a fitting follow-up to that surprising move McGowan is now expected to begin the season on the disabled list…

    Jan 27, 2012, 6:20 PM EDT

    Jeff Keppinger

    Counting on Carlos Pena, Matt Joyce and Luke Scott to fill key roles this year, the Rays had set themselves up to have huge problems against lefties in the bottom half of the order. That was alleviated somewhat today with the signing of Jeff Keppinger. Of course, Keppinger doesn’t play the same position as any…
