  1. Mariners recall Tom Wilhelmsen despite 10.50 ERA in AAA

    Tom Wilhelmsen was demoted to Triple-A Tacoma on August 6 and registered a 10.50 ERA over 12 2/3 innings there, but the Mariners have decided to recall him anyway because Tacoma’s season is just about over and major league rosters have expanded to 40. “Hopefully he can flip that switch again,” manager Eric Wedge told…

  2. Taijuan Walker impresses over five innings in MLB debut

    Aug 30, 2013, 11:00 PM EDT

    Taijuan Walker

    Baseball America rated pitcher Taijuan Walker the #18 overall prospect going into the season, putting a lot of expectations on the 21-year-old entering his fourth year of professional baseball. He pitched well enough with Double-A Jackson, though, to warrant a mid-season promotion to Triple-A Tacoma. There, he averaged better than a strikeout per inning and…

  3. Orioles sign Yankees castoff Dan Johnson

    Aug 30, 2013, 2:50 PM EDT

    Tampa Bay Rays' Dan Johnson hits a ninth inning home run with New York Yankees catcher Austin Romine at right during their American League MLB baseball game in St. Petersburg

    Shortly after adding a right-handed bat in Michael Morse the Orioles have added a left-handed bat in Dan Johnson, signing the veteran first baseman to a minor-league deal after he opted out of a deal with the Yankees. Johnson has spent all season playing at Triple-A for the Yankees, hitting .253 with 21 homers and…

  4. Orioles add righty power, get Michael Morse from Mariners

    Aug 30, 2013, 1:46 PM EDT

    Michael Morse

    Baltimore wasn’t able to come to an agreement with Minnesota for Josh Willingham, but the Orioles have added a right-handed power hitter in acquiring Michael Morse from Seattle for Triple-A outfielder Xavier Avery. Morse, unlike Willingham, is an impending free agent, so the Mariners were perfectly willing to let him go following a very disappointing…

  5. Tom Seaver thinks pitchers today should be like him and his Hall of Fame friends

    Aug 30, 2013, 8:23 AM EDT

    Tom Seaver

    This is in keeping with my observation from the other day that, when talking about the pitchers of yesteryear and their heavy work loads, people almost always talk about the exceptional and other-worldly talented, not the ones who never made it because their arms blew out. Here’s Tom Seaver talking to Bill Madden of the…

  6. Orioles claim Michael Morse off revocable waivers

    Aug 29, 2013, 12:16 PM EDT

    morse getty

    Last night we learned that the Orioles were awarded the claim on Twins left fielder Josh Willingham, giving them until Friday to work out a potential deal, and now they’ve claimed another right-handed bat. Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com reports that the Orioles were awarded the claim on Mariners left fielder Michael Morse, who’s similar to…

  7. Mariners won’t be trading Kendrys Morales

    Aug 29, 2013, 11:19 AM EDT

    Kendrys Morales

    Kendrys Morales was placed on revocable waivers by the Mariners and got claimed, but Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com reports that Seattle pulled him back and will be keeping the switch-hitter for the remainder of the season. Who knows what type of offer they got for Morales, but if the Mariners turned down any kind of…

  8. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    Aug 28, 2013, 7:09 AM EDT

    1995 World Series

    Braves 2, Indians 0: Tom Glavine with eight shutout innings and David Justice with a big homer. Wait, sorry. Having flashbacks. The real amazing thing here is that if you would have told me before the season that the Braves would have a game in late August where Elliot Johnson got a start and tripled…

  9. Kill the win? Nah, let’s just reduce its importance

    Aug 27, 2013, 9:45 AM EDT

    Max Scherzer

    So I’m reading the latest Jon Heyman column and I’m finding myself agreeing with him more than I am with people coming at the issue he’s discussing from a sabermetric point of view. And I wasn’t even hit on the head this morning or anything. The topic: the Kill The Win campaign Brian Kenny has…

  10. Mariners designate Aaron Harang for assignment

    Aug 26, 2013, 6:40 PM EDT

    Aaron Harang

    The Mariners now have an opening for Taijuan Walker in their rotation if they want to take it. Aaron Harang, who have up seven runs in 5 2/3 innings Sunday in a loss to the Angels, was designated for assignment Monday. It was the fourth time in his last eight starts that he had given…

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

    Aug 22, 2013, 6:55 AM EDT

    Tampa Bay Rays v Baltimore Orioles

    Orioles 4, Rays 2: Chris Davis homers again. Number 46 on the year. He’s four short of the all-time Orioles record. He tied Rafael Palmiero for the most home homers in Orioles history with 25. Tommy Hunter got the save, as it does appear that Buck Showalter is gonna go with the hot hand now.…

    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…

  13. Miguel Cabrera slugs 40th home run, Tigers top Royals

    Aug 18, 2013, 5:21 PM EDT

    miguel cabrera getty

    Max Scherzer surrendered just two runs over eight strong innings and Miguel Cabrera launched a two-run homer as the Tigers defeated the Royals 6-3 on Sunday afternoon at Detroit’s Comerica Park. The performance netted Scherzer his 18th win — he is now 18-1 — and the home run was Cabrera’s 40th. Scherzer fanned four Kansas City…

  14. Rosenthal: Dan Haren, Erik Bedard, Brendan Ryan and Matt Lindstrom have cleared waivers

    Aug 14, 2013, 11:31 PM EDT

    dan haren getty

    Loads of baseball players are passed through waivers every August and we only wind up with a handful of acutal waiver trades, but here’s the word anyway from FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal: Cleared waivers, can be traded to any team: #Nationals’ Haren, #Astros’ Bedard, #WhiteSox’s Lindstrom, #Cubs’ Guerrier, #Mariners’ Ryan. 1/2 — Ken Rosenthal (@Ken_Rosenthal)…

  15. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    Aug 14, 2013, 6:52 AM EDT

    Baltimore Orioles v Arizona Diamondbacks

    Diamondbacks 4, Orioles 3: Paul Goldschmidt homered to tie it in the ninth, homered to win it in the 11th. It’s perhaps too late for this, but memo to Buck Showalter: maybe don’t pitch to Paul Goldschmidt. Two walkoff wins in a row for the Dbacks. Their ninth walkoff win of the year. Yankees 14,…

  16. Mariners release Jason Bay

    Aug 6, 2013, 3:15 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim v Seattle Mariners

    Jason Bay went unclaimed on waivers after being designated for assignment last week and the Mariners released him. Bay didn’t play well overall for Seattle, hitting .204 with 62 strikeouts in 206 at-bats, but he also homered 11 times and may still be able to help some teams as a platoon player against left-handed pitching.…

  17. Demoted Mariners closer Tom Wilhelmsen is starting at Triple-A

    Aug 6, 2013, 1:48 PM EDT

    Tom Wilhelmsen

    Last night the Mariners demoted closer Tom Wilhelmsen to the minors and today he’s starting a game at Triple-A. Nothing official has been announced regarding a role change, but Geoff Baker of the Seattle Times writes that the Mariners “will start building Wilhelmsen’s arm up” and see how he looks. Not only was the demotion…

  18. The Mariners demote Tom Wilhelmsen to Triple-A

    Aug 6, 2013, 9:14 AM EDT

    Tom Wilhemsen

    From closer to minor leaguer: the Mariners Tom Wilhelmsen to Triple-A Tacoma last night. Wilhelmsen had a meltdown against the Red Sox last Thursday, helping Boston plate six runs in the ninth inning. That was that for him with the M’s, it seems, as he had not made it into a game since. On the year…

  19. Yankees bat Alex Rodriguez fourth in 2013 debut

    Aug 5, 2013, 5:32 PM EDT

    Alex Rodriguez

    Is this the Yankees’ way of telling Alex Rodriguez to put up or shut up? They have their 38-year-old former MVP batting cleanup Monday against the White Sox in his 2013 debut. It’s A-Rod’s first start for the Yankees since Game 2 of last year’s ALCS against the Tigers. Playing on a bad hip that…

  20. 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…

  21. 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…

  22. 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…

  23. 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…

  24. 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 —…

  25. 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…
