  1. Jesus Montero’s future in doubt with 50-game ban

    Aug 5, 2013, 2:27 PM EDT

    Jesus Montero

    Two years ago, one could have looked at the group of the 14 suspensed Biogenesis players — Alex Rodriguez, Ryan Braun, Nelson Cruz, Jhonny Peralta, Everth Cabrera, Jesus Montero, Francisco Cervelli, Antonio Bastardo, Jordany Valdespin, Sergio Escalona, Fernando Martinez, Cesar Puello, Fautino De Los Santos and Jordan Norberto —  and concluded that, besides Braun, Montero…

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

    Aug 5, 2013, 5:00 AM EDT

    Comerica Park

    I went to Detroit over the weekend where I took in Saturday and Sunday’s Tigers-White Sox games. Such a wonderful time. Cool temperatures, no humidity, good company, good pitching, good food, good beer. It’s really all you could want. As I watched these games and hung around a city that, no matter what else you…

  3. Stephen Pryor is done for the season

    Aug 4, 2013, 3:43 PM EDT

    stephen pryor getty

    Geoff Baker of the Seattle Times brings the news: Stephen Pryor has been on the disabled list since suffering a lat muscle injury while pitching for the Mariners back in April. But today, he’s been shut down for the remainder of the year with a new and completely different injury to his triceps. Pryor suffered that triceps…

  4. Chris Davis joined the 40-homer club in style

    Aug 2, 2013, 11:25 PM EDT

    Chris Davis

    It was never a matter of if, but when Orioles first baseman Chris Davis would join the 40-homer club. The slugger went into the All-Star break with 37, but came back a bit slow, going homerless in his first ten games after the break. But he homered Tuesday, he homered yesterday, and now he has…

  5. 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 —…

  6. 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…

  7. 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…

  8. 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…

  9. Play of the Day: Michael Saunders nailed himself a runner

    Aug 1, 2013, 9:14 AM EDT

    Video camera

    The Mariners lost, partially because Jonny Gomes had his own nice play in the outfield last night, turning an unassisted double play.  But this throw from Michael Saunders to end the 14th inning is pretty to watch. I’ve replayed it 10 times already.  There’s nothing like a perfect throw:

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

    Aug 1, 2013, 7:05 AM EDT

    Chicago White Sox v Cleveland Indians

    Indians 6, White Sox 5: Living with a Tigers fan is kinda hard sometimes. Like, when you have the Indians-White Sox game on the TV, she wants the Indians to lose, the White Sox blow a two-run lead in the ninth and then Carlos Santana hits a walkoff homer in extras. It’s even more complicated…

  11. 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…

  12. Pirates, Orioles likely to pass on Justin Morneau

    Jul 31, 2013, 1:51 PM EDT

    Justin Morneau

    It sure sounds like Justin Morneau is more likely to be dealt in August than before Wednesday’s deadline. According to John Perotto of the Beaver County Times, the Pirates have “next-to-zero” interest in Morneau as they weigh an upgrade at first base or in right field. Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun is among those…

  13. 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…

  14. Michael Morse is “very available”

    Jul 30, 2013, 6:31 PM EDT

    morse getty

    Michael Morse just returned from a badly-strained right quadriceps muscle and he’s batting just .251 with a .313 on-base percentage in 56 games played this season. But he has good power and a market could develop for him at some point between now and Wednesday’s 4 p.m. ET trade deadline. According to Joel Sherman of…

  15. Mariners designate Jason Bay for assignment

    Jul 29, 2013, 2:14 PM EDT

    Jason Bay

    In preparation for Michael Morse‘s expected return from the disabled list tomorrow the Mariners designated Jason Bay for assignment. Bay signed a one-year, $1 million deal with the Mariners after being released by the Mets and showed good power with 11 homers in 206 at-bats, but he also hit just .204 with a .691 OPS…

  16. Michael Morse expected to rejoin Mariners tomorrow

    Jul 29, 2013, 1:18 PM EDT

    Michael Morse

    No official announcement has been made yet, but it looks like Michael Morse will come off the disabled list and return to the Mariners’ lineup Tuesday. Todd Dybas of the Everett Herald reports that Morse said his goodbyes at Triple-A yesterday, signaling that his rehab for a strained quadriceps is over after more than a…

    Screen Shot 2013-07-29 at 6.11.41 AM

    Braves 5, Cardinals 2: That was somewhat unexpected. A less-than-dominant Braves team sweeps the best team in the National League. The key was Kris Medlen allowing two runs on eight hits. The key all series was good starting pitching from the Braves. So of course the big talking point everyone has is how Jason Heyward…

  18. Mariners sign catcher Humberto Quintero

    Jul 26, 2013, 8:40 PM EDT

    quintero getty

    Geoff Baker of the Seattle Times reports that the Mariners have signed veteran catcher Humberto Quintero to provide depth behind the plate in the wake of Mike Zunino‘s hamate bone surgery. Quintero was designated for assignment by the Phillies on Wednesday and opted to become a free agent after passing through waivers unclaimed. The 33-year-old…

  19. Mike Zunino out six weeks with fractured hamate bone

    Jul 26, 2013, 5:55 PM EDT

    Mike Zunino

    Mike Zunino exited last night’s game after taking a foul ball off his left hand and the Mariners catcher has been diagnosed with a fractured hamate bone. Ryan Divish of the Tacoma News Tribune reports that Zunino is expected to miss six weeks, meaning the rookie is no sure thing to play again this season.…

  20. Michael Morse almost ready to rejoin the Mariners

    Jul 26, 2013, 10:15 AM EDT

    Michael Morse

    Michael Morse has been out since May with a strained quadriceps, but the Mariners outfielder is rehabbing in the minors and just about ready to come off the disabled list. Interim manager Robby Thompson described Morse as “champing at the bit” to return and Greg Johns of MLB.com reports that Morse could be back in…

  21. Lance Berkman’s knee problems have him thinking about retirement

    Jul 25, 2013, 9:40 PM EDT

    Lance Berkman

    Lance Berkman is currently on the disabled list with left hip inflammation, but his surgically-repaired right knee is the bigger issue right now. In fact, he tells Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News that he has considered shutting it down for the rest of the season or even retiring if he doesn’t make progress…

  22. Hunter Pence, Alex Rios and Kendrys Morales among Rangers’ trade deadline targets

    Jul 25, 2013, 12:38 AM EDT

    rangers logo

    Via Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram: The Rangers, facing the possibility that right-fielder Nelson Cruz could be suspended and without much production from their other outfielders, have set their sights on Chicago White Sox outfielder Alex Rios, San Francisco right fielder Hunter Pence and Seattle designated hitter Kendrys Morales to fill a need…

  23. Ike Davis plans to bunt more often

    Jul 24, 2013, 1:39 AM EDT

    Ike Davis, Marvin Hudson

    Mets first baseman Ike Davis attempted to bunt for a base hit in the bottom of the second inning with one out and the bases empty and his team down 1-0. He was facing an infield shift, so his thought was to drop a bunt down the third base line for an easy infield single,…

  24. And That Happened: Monday’s scores and highlights

    Jul 23, 2013, 6:56 AM EDT

    Tampa Bay Rays v Boston Red Sox

    Rays 3, Red Sox 0: Matt Moore throws his first career shutout and it came in the first game of what, so far this year, is the Rays biggest series. Two hits allowed, one walk four strikeouts as the Rays cut a game off the Sox’ division lead, now sitting a half game back. Reds…

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

    Jul 22, 2013, 5:12 AM EDT

    Philadelphia Phillies v New York Mets

    Mets 5, Phillies 0: It’s getting close to the time for us to break out all of that “we are all witnesses” kind of hyperbole for Matt Harvey. Not that it’s really hyperbole. He’s simply toying with hitters at this point, throwing ungodly stuff in just about every count. Seven innings, three hits, ten strikeouts,…
