    Jose Lobaton

    The rumored trade between Tampa Bay and Washington is a reality, as Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports that the Rays have traded catcher Jose Lobaton and two unnamed minor leaguers to the Nationals for pitching prospect Nate Karns.

  7. Rays could trade Jose Lobaton

    Feb 2, 2014, 8:45 PM EDT

    Jose Lobaton

    With Jose Molina and Ryan Hanigan behind the dish, Jose Lobaton is now expendable and the Rays could explore trading him, writes Mark Topkin for the Tampa Bay Times. Topkin adds that, given the vagaries of the game of baseball, they’ll likely bring Lobaton to spring training in case either of their catchers suffers an…

    Carlos Beltran

    We’re almost into 2014, which means we’re only about a month and a half away from pitchers and catchers reporting to spring training — the official start of baseball. Most of the big name free agents are off the board and thus most teams have already finished shopping or have done most of the heavy…

    It’s the catcher market that has moved the most quickly in free agency this winter, with Brian McCann becoming the first elite free agent to come to terms, agreeing to a five-year, $85 million deal with the Yankees on Saturday.

    Sep 23, 2013, 10:17 PM EDT

    Billy Hamilton

    Reds manager Dusty Baker declined to start Billy Hamilton again Monday after his three-hit day Sunday, instead reserving him for pinch-running duties. When he did go to him in the eighth, it produced a memorable sequence. Hamilton pinch-ran for Ryan Hanigan with two outs and none on in a tie game in the bottom of…

    Pittsburgh Pirates v St. Louis Cardinals

    Cardinals 9, Pirates 2: And the sweep. Four losses in a row overall for Pittsburgh which is back in wild card territory, looking up at the Cards, still stuck on 81 wins.  Michael Wacha pitched seven shutout innings, allowing only two hits, and drove in two runs to boot.

    Yankees 9, Red Sox 6: All of the fireworks. All of the intrigue. All of the A-Rod. But this game really came down to the bullpens. The Yankees’ was fresh and effective, the Red Sox’ wasn’t. Our more thorough write-up can be read here. For now the Red Sox probably need to think less about…

    The third-place Reds will have to rely on Devin Mesoraco as their primary catcher over the next two weeks, as Ryan Hanigan was placed on the disabled list today due to a sprained left wrist.

    Apr 8, 2013, 7:40 PM EDT

    Mitchell Boggs

    The joke was on Shin-Soo Choo for most of Monday’s Reds-Cardinals game, as the newly converted center fielder dropped a pair of Yadier Molina flyballs to give St. Louis three of its four runs. Then came the top of the ninth inning. With Cardinals closer Mitchell Boggs in a 4-4 game, the Reds exploded —…

  22. Reds sign Miguel Olivo to minor league contract

    Feb 1, 2013, 1:50 PM EDT

    Miguel Olivo

    Cincinnati was seemingly set at catcher with Ryan Hanigan and Devin Mesoraco, but Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com reports that the Reds are close to signing Miguel Olivo. Olivo has long been overrated by people who focus on his strong arm and 20-homer power rather than his historically awful on-base percentages and passed ball totals, so…
