    Detroit Tigers v Oakland Athletics

    Tigers 10, Athletics 1: Austin Jackson was 4 for 6 with three RBI. Prince Fielder is now hitting .429/.527/.833. Once this team gets its bullpen figured out, man, watch out. Diamondbacks 1, Dodgers 0: When Nick Swisher hit a walkoff homer single in a 1-0 game the other day I thought to myself, “man, you don’t…

    As first reported by MLB.com’s Carrie Muskat, the Cubs have claimed right-handed reliever Kameron Loe off waivers from the Mariners. Backup catcher Steve Clevenger was put on the 60-day disabled list with an oblique strain to clear a roster spot.

    Apr 13, 2013, 1:29 AM EST

    Hisashi Iwakuma

    Pitching on his 32nd birthday, Hisashi Iwakuma outdueled Yu Darvish in a battle of Japanese starters Friday as the Mariners beat the Rangers 3-1. Darvish opened the bottom of the first by hitting Jason Bay with one out and then giving up three singles, putting the Rangers in the early 3-0 hole. He was stellar…

  4. Some pitching feats in tonight’s action

    Apr 12, 2013, 10:40 PM EST

    A.J. Burnett

    A.J. Burnett turned in his third consecutive solid effort, holding the Reds to three runs over six innings tonight, striking out eight. Since 2000, there are only ten occurrences of a pitcher tossing at least five innings and striking out eight or more in at least his first three starts of the season. Randy Johnson…

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

    Apr 12, 2013, 6:00 AM EST

    Los Angeles Dodgers v San Diego Padres

    Had tickets to the Columbus Clippers-Indianapolis Indians game. Daisuke Matsuzaka was scheduled to start. Then it rained and they canceled the game. I have mixed feelings about it all because, on the one hand, baseball. On the other hand I dodged the Matsuzaka bullet. Oh well. Dodgers 3, Padres 2: FISTICUFFSMANSHIP!  Zack Greinke hit Carlos…

  6. Michael Morse could miss a week with fractured pinkie

    Apr 12, 2013, 3:29 AM EST

    Michael Morse

    The Mariners could be without one of the AL’s hottest hitters for a week after Michael Morse suffered a non-displaced fracture of his right pinkie finger during Thursday’s game against the Rangers. Morse, who is batting .293 with six homers, was hit on the hand by a Tanner Scheppers pitch in the eighth inning, but…

    The Mariners announced this evening that outfielder Michael Saunders has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a right shoulder sprain.

    Michael Saunders crashed almost head-on into the outfield wall on Wednesday night at Safeco Field while running down a Jose Altuve warning-track fly. He laid on the ground for several minutes before eventually walking off the field with his right arm hanging limply at his side. It looked like a right shoulder injury — one…

    Designated for assignment by the Mariners last week, outfielder Casper Wells has been claimed off waivers by the Blue Jays. Seattle chose to keep Jason Bay over Wells, who’s hit .246 with 25 homers and a .752 OPS in 656 plate appearances as a big leaguer. He has very good power and can play all…

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

    Apr 10, 2013, 6:53 AM EST

    Robinson Cano, Yan Gomes

    Yankees 14, Indians 1: “Man, where are the Yankees going to get any offense with all of their big hitters on the DL?” no one is asking today like they asked so much last week. I guess nowadays everybody wanna talk like they got somethin to say, but nothin’ comes out when they move their…

  11. Second game in reconfigured Safeco features eight homers

    Apr 10, 2013, 1:48 AM EST

    Michael Morse

    Yeah, but new walls or not, it’s hard to slow down offensive juggernauts like the Astros and Mariners possess. In the second game in Safeco since the walls were brought in, those two teams combined for eight homers in a 16-9 Houston victory. Here’s the list: Houston Chris Carter x2 Jose Altuve J.D. Martinez Marwin…

  12. Astros light up Mariners rookie Brandon Maurer

    Apr 9, 2013, 10:45 PM EST

    Brandon Maurer

    Finally getting to take out some frustration, the Astros racked up six runs and seven hits in the first Tuesday against Mariners starter Brandon Maurer, sending him to the showers after 36 pitches. It was a second straight rough outing for Maurer, who climbed over several pitchers this spring to win a spot in the…

  13. Justin Upton, Paul Maholm an unbeatable combination for Braves

    Apr 8, 2013, 11:54 PM EST

    Paul Maholm

    Justin Upton went 4-for-4 and homered yet again while Paul Maholm pitched one-hit ball for seven innings in the Braves’ 2-0 defeat of the Marlins on Monday. Upton leads the majors six homers, one more than Seattle’s Mike Morse, and he also chipped in with his second double tonight. He scored both runs for the…

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

    Apr 5, 2013, 6:55 AM EST

    Aroldis Chapman and Dusty Baker

    Reds 5, Angels 4: Albert Pujols and Josh Hamilton finally upped their averages north of .000 — each went 1 for 4 and drove in a couple — but not enough to matter. Aroldis Chapman came in to pitch the ninth against the top of the order. Mike Trout singled but then he got Aybar…

  15. Duck! Ervin Santana picked up right where he left off

    Apr 3, 2013, 4:46 PM EST

    Adam Dunn

    Ervin Santana served up an AL-high 39 homers in 178 innings last season on the way to posting a 5.16 ERA that convinced the Angels to dump him on the Royals. Santana made his Royals debut today and allowed three homers in six innings, as Adam Dunn, Dayan Viciedo, and Tyler Flowers all took him…

    Texas Rangers pitcher Darvish reacts after a hit by Houston Astros' Gonzalez goes through his legs in their MLB American League baseball game in Houston

    Rangers 7, Astros 0: Part of me feels like if the Rangers didn’t score all those runs in the eighth and ninth innings that Darvish would have been fresher and finished this thing off. Part of me feels like if he wasn’t facing the Astros that it would have been over in the sixth. But…

    Los Angeles Dodgers Kershaw watches solo home run in eighth inning against San Francisco Giants during MLB National League baseball game in Los Angeles

    Dodgers 4, Giants, 0: I watched part of this game with my kids after they got home from school. When they were showing the lineups, they showed Clayton Kershaw‘s career .146 average and my son asked me why it was so low compared to the other players’. I explained to him that pitchers can’t really…

    John Jaso

    Wanting to reward the guy who caught his perfect game against the Rays last year, Mariners starter Felix Hernandez sent A’s catcher John Jaso a Rolex before the two squared off Monday. Hernandez had “Perfect Game ” and “8/15/12″ inscribed on the watch, which was delivered via a clubhouse employee about 90 minutes before first…

    Aaron Hicks

    Bringing back something I used to do each year for fun, here’s a look at the American League Rookie of the Year possibilities, with odds posted for several of the favorites. I’ll follow suit with the National League tomorrow. Please note: Rangers outfielder Leonys Martin is ineligible for Rookie of the Year honors. He spent…

  21. Mariners choose Jason Bay over Casper Wells

    Mar 31, 2013, 6:00 PM EST

    Jason Bay

    The Mariners designated Casper Wells for assignment, which means Jason Bay has made the club, according to Larry Stone on Twitter. Bay finished the spring with a .938 OPS while Wells was less impressive at .646. Stone also notes that if Wells clears waivers, he cannot elect free agency because of his lack of service…

  22. Extensions are the new on-base percentage

    Mar 29, 2013, 7:05 PM EST

    Dave Dombrowski, Justin Verlander

    Years after Michael Lewis wrote Moneyball and teams started taking a smarter approach to building baseball teams, writers would often proclaim something as “the new on-base percentage”. Billy Beane’s Oakland Athletics rose to prominence in one small part due to their ability to find cheap players with good on-base skills. A quick Google search of the…

  23. Justin Verlander and Tigers agree to $180 million contract

    verlander gatorade

    Justin Verlander was eligible for free agency after the 2014 season, but the former MVP and the Tigers have agreed to a five-year contract extension that will keep him in Detroit through at least 2019. Verlander was already under contract for $20 million this season and $20 million next season as part of a deal…

  24. RIP Gus Triandos

    Mar 29, 2013, 11:12 AM EST

    Triandos

    Gus Triandos was famously slow ballplayer. There’s a difference between been a regular old slow ballplayer and a famously slow one. The first might go somewhat unnoticed, especially if he tries hard enough. Raul Ibanez is very slow, he will be the first one to tell you that. But he always runs it out and…

  25. Mariners send Erasmo Ramirez and Jeremy Bonderman to minors

    Mar 27, 2013, 3:18 PM EST

    Erasmo Ramirez

    Erasmo Ramirez threw 59 innings with a 3.28 ERA and 48/12 K/BB ratio for the Mariners as a 22-year-old rookie last season, but that wasn’t enough to get him a spot in the Opening Day rotation. Seattle optioned Ramirez to Triple-A and also reassigned reclamation project Jeremy Bonderman to minor-league camp, which means the Mariners…
