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

    Aug 22, 2013, 6:55 AM EST

    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…

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

    Aug 18, 2013, 5:21 PM EST

    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…

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

    Aug 14, 2013, 11:31 PM EST

    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)…

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

    Aug 14, 2013, 6:52 AM EST

    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,…

  6. Mariners release Jason Bay

    Aug 6, 2013, 3:15 PM EST

    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.…

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

    Aug 6, 2013, 1:48 PM EST

    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…

  8. The Mariners demote Tom Wilhelmsen to Triple-A

    Aug 6, 2013, 9:14 AM EST

    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…

  9. Yankees bat Alex Rodriguez fourth in 2013 debut

    Aug 5, 2013, 5:32 PM EST

    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…

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

    Aug 5, 2013, 2:27 PM EST

    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…

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

    Aug 5, 2013, 5:00 AM EST

    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…

  12. Stephen Pryor is done for the season

    Aug 4, 2013, 3:43 PM EST

    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…

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

    Aug 2, 2013, 11:25 PM EST

    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…

  14. Tom Wilhelmsen out as Mariners closer

    Aug 2, 2013, 7:45 PM EST

    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 —…

  15. Great Moments in knowing your right from your left: Mariners’ skipper signals for the wrong reliever

    Aug 2, 2013, 9:06 AM EST

    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…

  16. And That Happened: Thursday’s scores and highlights

    Aug 2, 2013, 6:18 AM EST

    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…

  17. Red Sox score six in ninth to beat Mariners 8-7

    Aug 2, 2013, 12:50 AM EST

    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…

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

    Aug 1, 2013, 9:14 AM EST

    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:

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

    Aug 1, 2013, 7:05 AM EST

    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…

  20. Winners and losers at the trade deadline

    Jul 31, 2013, 5:50 PM EST

    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…

  21. Pirates, Orioles likely to pass on Justin Morneau

    Jul 31, 2013, 1:51 PM EST

    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…

  22. Orioles “actively pursuing” Mike Morse and Oliver Perez

    Jul 31, 2013, 1:03 PM EST

    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…

  23. Michael Morse is “very available”

    Jul 30, 2013, 6:31 PM EST

    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…

  24. Mariners designate Jason Bay for assignment

    Jul 29, 2013, 2:14 PM EST

    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…

  25. Michael Morse expected to rejoin Mariners tomorrow

    Jul 29, 2013, 1:18 PM EST

    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…
