    Rick Porcello had to battle just to keep his rotation spot this spring, but he’s currently showing some signs of a breakthrough. Porcello allowed three hits and no walks over seven scoreless innings last night in a 3-0 victory over the Twins. While he still holds a mediocre 4.37 ERA for the year, he has…

    When we have talked about the Marlins this season, it usually hasn’t been about anything good. And understandably so. But after he surprisingly made the Opening Day roster, 20-year-old Jose Fernandez has been a pretty consistent bright spot. Fernandez struck out a career-high 10 batters while allowing three runs — two earned — in seven…

  3. Mariners have Dustin Ackley playing left field at Triple-A

    Jun 13, 2013, 10:47 AM EDT

    Dustin Ackley, Justin Smoak

    Dustin Ackley has hit .429 with a 1.143 OPS in 11 games at Triple-A since being demoted back to the minors by the Mariners last month, but whenever he returns to the majors it might not be as a second baseman. Seattle seems committed to giving rookie Nick Franklin a lengthy opportunity to establish himself…

    San Francisco Giants v Pittsburgh Pirates

    The losing team scored two runs in eight of last night’s fifteen games. I have no idea if that’s uncommon or not, but I noticed it and I’m going to pretend it’s a sign or portent or something. Anyway: Pirates 8, Giants 2: Welcome to the big leagues Gerrit Cole. The 2011 number one pick…

  5. So, someone is going to have to be the AL Rookie of the Year, right?

    Jun 11, 2013, 6:11 PM EDT

    Jose Iglesias

    The AL fired off all its rounds with a 2012 rookie class that featured Mike Trout, Yu Darvish, Yoenis Cespedes, Jarrod Parker, Hisashi Iwakuma, Matt Moore, Tommy Milone and many others. This year, the strong rookie class is in the other league, with Shelby Miller, Hyun-Jin Ryu and Julio Teheran leading the way and Yasiel…

    Ed Hickox, weather

    White Sox 10, Blue Jays 6: “The fog comes on little cat feet. It sits looking over harbor and city on silent haunches and then moves on.” Carl Sandburg said that about fog. “It was worse than when it rains. With the lights, it made it really really bright. It was weird.” Adam Dunn said that about fog. Which may…

    St. Louis Cardinals v Cincinnati Reds

    Cardinals 11, Reds 4: I’ll take “Improbable scores for an extra-inning game for $200, Alex.” It was already 7-4 in the top of the 10th when Matt Holliday came to the plate but he hit a grand slam off Curtis Partch to truly ice the game. J.J. Hoover was charged with six of the seven…

  8. Michael Pineda goes four-plus innings in first rehab start

    It will be at least two more weeks before Michael Pineda finally joins the Yankees’ starting rotation, but the 24-year-old Dominican righty is already showing legitimate signs of readiness. Pineda allowed just one (unearned) run over 4 2/3 innings on Sunday afternoon in his minor league rehab debut with High-A Tampa. Facing the Tigers’ High-A…

  9. Michael Pineda scheduled for first rehab start tomorrow

    New York Yankees starter Pineda pitches against the Philadelphia Phillies during a spring training baseball game in Clearwater

    Yankees starter Michael Pineda will begin his rehab, making his first start tomorrow afternoon with the Single-A Tampa Yankees per MLB.com’s Bryan Hoch on Twitter. He was originally scheduled to start today, but was pushed back to tomorrow due to a rainout. Pineda, who hasn’t pitched in the Majors since September 2011, suffered a torn…

  10. Yasiel Puig becomes second player since 1900 with four homers in first five MLB games

    Yasiel Puig Getty

    Dodgers rookie sensation Yasiel Puig was at it again last night, as he ripped a game-tying solo home run to left field in the sixth inning against the Braves. In doing so, he made a little bit of history. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Puig is just the second player since 1900 to hit…

    Jeremy Bonderman Getty

    After sitting out the 2011 season and undergoing Tommy John surgery in 2012, Jeremy Bonderman was completely off the radar coming into this season. However, after being called up to join the Mariners’ rotation late last month, Bonderman is finally back in the win column. Bonderman held the Yankees to one run on three hits…

  12. 2013 MLB Draft: Picks 11-20 – Mets look to first base, Padres go Renfroe

    Jun 6, 2013, 8:36 PM EDT

    Hunter Renfroe

    Mets picked high school first baseman Dominic Smith 11th overall. Domonic Brown has been this year’s breakthrough player, so why not Dominic Smith. It can’t be taken as a great vote of confidence for either Ike Davis or Lucas Duda that the Mets took a first baseman here, but many, many things can happen before…

  13. Hisashi Iwakuma moves ahead of Clayton Kershaw for best ERA among starters since last year

    Jun 6, 2013, 10:47 AM EDT

    Hisashi Iwakuma

    Last year Hisashi Iwakuma spent the beginning of his rookie season mopping up for the Mariners, but the veteran right-hander from Japan thrived when given a chance to join the starting rotation and has quietly been one of the best pitchers in baseball since. Lost in the craziness of yesterday’s 16-inning White Sox-Mariners marathon is…

    Rockies 12, Reds 4: The Colorado Wrecking Crew: Carlos Gonzalez hit three home runs and drove in six. Troy Tulowitzki hit two of his own. Pedro Villarreal had no idea what hit him. White Sox 7, Mariners 5: You figure if you score five runs in the top of an extra inning that you’re gonna…

    This game started at 12:40 p.m. local time at Seattle’s Safeco Field. A full five hours and 42 minutes later, it finally reached a conclusion. The score was tied 0-0 until the top of the 14th inning, when the White Sox rallied for five runs against Mariners relievers Hector Noesi and Danny Farquhar. Seattle marched…

    Miami Marlins v Philadelphia Phillies

    Phillies 7, Marlins 3: John Mayberry had a walkoff grand slam. Probably good that the Phillies won this one. After a brutally bad call by Bob Davidson in the bottom of the eighth on a Ben Revere takeout slide, the crowd didn’t stop letting the umps hear it. Apparently none of the tens of thousands…

    Performance-enhancing drugs loomed large entering the baseball season, amid reports that dozens of players — many of them high-profile stars — could be suspended because of their reported involvement with a clinic that supplied PEDs. That story just got bigger. From ESPN.com investigative reporters T.J. Quinn, Pedro Gomez and Mike Fish: Major League Baseball will…

  20. Franklin Gutierrez isn’t healthy, so Mariners petition MLB for more rehab

    Jun 4, 2013, 10:47 AM EDT

    Texas Rangers v Seattle Mariners

    Minor-league rehab assignments are limited to 20 days, in part so that teams can’t simply stash veteran players in the minors indefinitely. In some cases, however, an injury lingers longer than 20 days and things become tricky. That’s happening with Mariners outfielder Franklin Gutierrez, whose hamstring injury remains an issue after 20 days in the…

    Jesus Montero batted just .208 with three home runs and a .590 OPS prior to being demoted to Triple-A Tacoma last month, but his season has taken another disappointing turn. Greg Johns of MLB.com reports that Montero was diagnosed with a torn meniscus in his left knee and will undergo surgery next week. He’s expected…

    Groundhog Day

    Pirates 1, Tigers 0: Jim Leyland was in the Virgin Islands once. He met a girl. they ate lobster, drank piña coladas. At sunset, they made love like sea otters. That was a pretty good day. Why couldn’t he get that day over, and over, and over? Or, well, at least two out of three days. It’d…

    Geoff Baker allowed Eric Wedge to expand on his controversial comments from the other day in which he appeared to accuse sabermetrics of ruining Dustin Ackley, leading to his demotion.

    Chicago White Sox v Chicago Cubs

    Players who hit multiple home runs in a game are the new inefficiency. Teams should definitely stock up on those guys while they’re undervalued. Cubs 9, White Sox 3: Backup catcher Dioner Navarro smacked three homers — a solo, a two-run and a three-run jack — to pace the Cubbies. A Cubbies team who happen…
