    Max Scherzer

    Tigers starter Max Scherzer, at long last, has joined the 20-win club. In his fifth attempt at the feat, the right-hander held the White Sox to three runs on six hits and a walk in six innings of work. Scherzer only struck out three, but it was besides the point as the Tigers supplied him…

    Prince Fielder Getty

    In the top of the fifth inning this afternoon against the Mariners, Prince Fielder attempted to chase down a foul ball off the bat of catcher Mike Zunino. While he was unable to catch the ball, he didn’t walk away completely empty-handed. The best part about that is that the fan appeared to be completely…

  4. X-rays negative on Jose Iglesias’ hand

    Sep 19, 2013, 6:03 PM EDT

    Jose Iglesias Getty

    The Tigers were given quite the scare this afternoon when Jose Iglesias was hit in the left hand by a pitch from Mariners reliever Tom Wilhelmsen in the bottom of the sixth inning, but it sounds like he’s going to be fine. According to Bobby Nightengale and Jason Beck of MLB.com, X-rays came back negative…

    Felix Hernandez

    Felix Hernandez hasn’t started since September 2 because of an oblique injury, but Greg Johns of MLB.com reports that the Mariners right-hander is scheduled to pitch Sunday against the Angels. Hernandez threw a problem-free bullpen session today to convince the Mariners he’s healthy enough to start. He struggled leading up to the injury shut down,…

    Chris Davis

    Orioles 5, Red Sox 3: Chris Davis with a two-run single in the 12th to win the game. Wei-Yin Chen gave up 11 hits but someone only three runs in five and two-thirds.

    Sep 17, 2013, 6:23 AM EDT

    Texas Rangers v Tampa Bay Rays

    Rays 6, Rangers 2: A homer and three RBI for Wil Myers as the Rays send the Rangers spiraling ever further into despair. Because the Indians lost too the Rangers didn’t fall out of the wild card slot, but they did fall out of the top spot, meaning that they’re now closer to falling out…

  8. Felix Hernandez now aiming for weekend return from oblique injury

    Sep 16, 2013, 8:29 PM EDT

    Seattle Mariners v Toronto Blue Jays

    We heard over the weekend that Felix Hernandez could return from his oblique injury as soon as Wednesday against the Tigers, but it turns out he’ll have to wait a little bit longer.

    Sep 13, 2013, 8:10 PM EDT

    Robinson Cano

    Facing an infield shift with the bases empty and two outs in the first inning, Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano bunted down the third base line against Red Sox starter John Lackey. With third baseman Will Middlebrooks playing too far off the line, the ball trickled towards the stands to the left of the line. Shortstop…

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

    Sep 13, 2013, 7:23 AM EDT

    Cleveland Indians v Chicago White Sox

    Indians 14, White Sox 3: Ryan Raburn went 3 for 3 with a homer and five RBI. The Tribe put up a seven spot in the fifth inning in which the first nine batters who came to the plate reached. They keep pace with the Rays, who also won, and remain one and a half games…

  12. Derek Jeter is VHS

    Sep 12, 2013, 11:03 AM EDT

    jeter rehab getty

    Grant Brisbee pretty ably sums up the future of Derek Jeter at shortstop for the New York Yankees. Specifically, that he has none. That even if he exercises his player option for next year and comes back it’s likely to be as the Yankees DH/utility guy because he’ll be 40 and shortstops just don’t play…

  13. Yankees acquire shortstop Brendan Ryan from Mariners

    Sep 10, 2013, 11:32 PM EDT

    brendan ryan getty

    As first reported by MLB.com’s Brian McTaggart, the Yankees have acquired shortstop Brendan Ryan from the Mariners for a player to be named later. If you needed any further indication that Derek Jeter‘s left ankle soreness is a concern, this would be it. Ryan is one of the best defensive shortstops in baseball, but he…

  14. Felix Hernandez to miss at least one start with oblique injury

    Sep 10, 2013, 11:51 AM EDT

    Felix Hernandez

    Last week Felix Hernandez had his start delayed due to what the Mariners were calling a lower back cramp, but it turns out it was actually an oblique injury and now he’ll miss the rescheduled start too. Hernandez was supposed to pitch Wednesday against the Astros, but Brandon Maurer will take his place after a…

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

    Sep 10, 2013, 6:58 AM EDT

    Arizona Diamondbacks v Los Angeles Dodgers

    Dodgers 8, Diamondbacks 1: Three bombs for Juan Uribe and four driven in. What a season for the guy who, in his first two years in Dodger blue, looked lost and, frankly, over. This year he’s hitting .279/.334/.476, is playing excellent defense at third and who has been, by all accounts, a great guy in…

  16. The Mariners will shut down Taijuan Walker after Monday’s start

    Sep 6, 2013, 11:55 PM EDT

    Taijuan Walker

    Mariners rookie starter Taijuan Walker will make his final start of the 2013 season against the Astros on Monday, reports MLB.com’s Greg Johns. Brandon Maurer will take his spot in the rotation.

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

    Sep 6, 2013, 6:30 AM EDT

    Chicago White Sox v Baltimore Orioles

    Orioles 3, White Sox 1: The Orioles win and, frankly, I’m going to credit playing at home. Yep, nothing like a home game. Makes all the difference. And if you think for a minute I’m irrationally beating this into the ground, go take a gander at the NFL Industrial Complex’s collective and concerted moaning and…

  18. Felix Hernandez’s next start delayed by back issues

    Sep 5, 2013, 6:02 PM EDT

    Felix Hernandez

    Felix Hernandez won’t pitch again until next Wednesday after leaving Monday’s game with what was called a lower back cramp, MLB.com reports. “He feels good and wants to start on Sunday, but we’re going to be cautious with him,” manager Eric Wedge said. “We want him to get some flat ground work, get another bullpen…

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

    Sep 3, 2013, 6:25 AM EDT

    Minnesota Twins v Houston Astros

    Twins 10, Astros 6: Rookie and independent league veteran Chris Colabello homered twice including a grand slam to break a 6-6 tie in the ninth. Entering Sunday he was on an 0 for 23 skid and now here he is having the best day of his life. Probably the best day he’ll ever have at a ballpark.…

  20. The Mets sign Aaron Harang

    Sep 2, 2013, 9:48 AM EDT

    Aaron Harang

    The Mariners designated starter Aaron Harang for assignment last week. This week he’s latched on with the Mets, albeit on a minor league deal. Weird year for Harang. Overall he compiled a 5-11 record with a 5.76 ERA. Not great, but mixed in there were two shutouts and five starts in which he allowed just one run.…

  21. Brett Oberholtzer becomes first Astro to throw a complete game in 2013

    Sep 1, 2013, 6:45 PM EDT

    Seattle Mariners v Houston Astros

  22. Mariners recall Tom Wilhelmsen despite 10.50 ERA in AAA

    Sep 1, 2013, 1:48 PM EDT

    wilhelmsen getty

    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…

  23. 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…

  24. 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…

  25. 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…
