    Sep 1, 2012, 11:30 AM EDT

    Alex Rodriguez AP

    Alex Rodriguez began a minor league rehab assignment last night with High-A Tampa and went 0-for-3 with a walk and two strikeouts as the designated hitter. It was his first game action since suffering a fracture in his left hand when he was by a pitch by Mariners’ ace Felix Hernandez on July 24. Rodriguez…

    UPDATE: Dickey and Cueto have some company. Gio Gonzalez just tossed a five-hit shutout of his own vs. the Cardinals for his 17th win. 9:50 PM: R.A. Dickey tossed a five-hit shutout tonight as part of a 3-0 victory over the Marlins, putting him into a tie with fellow National League Cy Young candidate Johnny…

  3. Felix Hernandez, Jason Vargas get claimed on trade waivers

    Aug 31, 2012, 2:56 PM EDT

    Felix Hernandez

    While Joe Mauer‘s soiree on the waiver wire made big headlines, the fact that Felix Hernandez was out there too was unknown until Friday, when FOXSports.com’s Jon Morosi reported that both Hernandez and Jason Vargas have been claimed on waivers. Kevin Millwood cleared waivers and is thus eligible to be traded. However, he’d have to…

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

    Aug 29, 2012, 6:07 AM EDT

    Stephen Strasburg

    Major League Baseball celebrated Otherwise Good Teams Get Shut Out Night last night. It was quite festive. Marlins 9, Nationals 0: Look, maybe this will start a conversation no one thinks we’d ever have about an ace pitcher on a first place team, but maybe the Nationals should consider shutting Stephen Strasburg down (5 IP,…

  5. Yu Darvish fans 10 Rays in Rangers’ 1-0 victory

    Aug 29, 2012, 1:14 AM EDT

    yu darvish reuters

    Yu Darvish turned in his best start since April on Tuesday, blanking the Rays for seven innings and striking out 10 as the Rangers won 1-0. It was Darvish’s third straight quality start, but also the first time since July 21 that he’s ended a start without allowing at least three runs. Darvish went without…

    Aug 28, 2012, 6:05 AM EDT

    Tampa Bay Rays v Texas Rangers

    Rangers 6, Rays 5: Adrian Beltre was last week’s player of the week after hitting for the cycle one night and hitting three bombs on another. He’s off to a good start for that award again, going 3 for 3 with a homer a double and four RBI. David Price had one of his worst…

  7. Felix Hernandez beats Twins for fifth shutout of season

    Aug 27, 2012, 11:45 PM EDT

    Felix Hernandez

    Felix Hernandez pitched a five-hitter Monday against the Twins to become the first American League pitcher since David Wells in 1998 to notch five shutouts in a season. It was his ninth career shutout. Hernandez has won nine straight decisions to put himself right in the thick of the AL Cy Young race. The shutout…

  8. Franklin Gutierrez returns to Mariners after missing two months with concussion

    Aug 27, 2012, 2:20 PM EDT

    Boston Red Sox v Seattle Mariners

    Seattle has activated Franklin Gutierez from the disabled list after the center fielder missed the past two months with a concussion, demoting Casper Wells to Triple-A to make room on the roster. Gutierrez hit .333 with two homers in seven games on a minor-league rehab assignment and most importantly reported no post-concussion symptoms. Before the…

  9. Hawk Harrelson goes after another ump but doesn’t get in trouble for it

    Aug 27, 2012, 1:30 PM EDT

    hawk harrelson

    In late May, White Sox announcer Hawk Harrelson was called on the carpet by Sox owner Jerry Reinsdorf and by Bud Selig himself after Harrelson exploded on the air at umpire Mark Wegner, calling one of his calls “absolutely brutal,” “unbelievable” and accusing Wegner of not knowing anything about the game of baseball. Getting called on…

  10. Watch the Mariners lose a game on an outfield collision

    Aug 25, 2012, 12:08 AM EDT

    Eric Thames, Michael Saunders

    It looked like Mariners right fielder Eric Thames managed to grab Paul Konerko‘s fly to deep right-center with one out in the ninth inning tonight. Alas, that all changed when center fielder Michael Saunders plowed into him, giving the White Sox a 9-8 win. Here’s the video. The game was tied at 8 before Dewayne…

  11. Check out the Rays and Angels on tonight’s “Caught Looking”

    Aug 23, 2012, 6:35 PM EDT

    Tonight’s Caught Looking, airing at 9 p.m. ET on NBC Sports Network, goes behind the scenes at last weekend’s Rays-Angels series, a four-game showdown that featured the Rays bouncing back in a big way on the heels of Felix Hernandez‘s perfect game that took place just a day before. Here’s a preview:

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

    Aug 23, 2012, 5:30 AM EDT

    Baltimore Orioles v Texas Rangers

    Rangers 12, Orioles 3: Five years ago last night Texas laid 30 runs on the Orioles. Not so bad last night, but still pretty ugly. Adrian Beltre smacked three dingers and drove in five. Sadly, Tommy Hunter was only allowed to give up a solo homer, two-run homer and a grand slam, falling just short…

  13. Max Scherzer is trying to crash the aces-only party for MLB strikeout leaders

    Aug 22, 2012, 5:20 PM EDT

    Max Scherzer Getty

    Usually the MLB strikeout leader is a big-name, Cy Young-caliber pitcher. In fact, every single MLB strikeout leader during the past 20 years fits that description: Randy Johnson (nine times) Johan Santana (two times) Justin Verlander (two times) Curt Schilling (two times) Jered Weaver Tim Lincecum Jake Peavy Kerry Wood John Smoltz You get the…

    Nationals' Strasburg pitches in the rain during the second inning of their MLB game against Braves in Washington

    Nationals 4, Braves 1: I have been arguing against a Stephen Strasburg shutdown for a while now, but allow me to say that if those dudes are really gonna do that, I wish they would have done it before last night. Strasburg struck out ten in six innings, allowing a single run and winning his…

  15. No no-no, but Felix Hernandez beats Indians for 12th win

    Aug 22, 2012, 12:35 AM EDT

    Felix Hernandez

    Felix Hernandez didn’t make any sort of run at Johnny Vander Meer’s unbreakable record of back-to-back no-hitters Tuesday — he gave up a single to Jason Kipnis, the very first batter he faced — but he did limit the Indians to one run in 7 2/3 innings in a 4-1 victory. Meanwhile, the other Hernandez…

  16. Felix Hernandez: “I’m not going anywhere … I promise”

    Aug 21, 2012, 5:00 PM EDT

    Felix Hernandez

    Everyone wants to put Felix Hernandez in pinstripes, but Felix Hernandez was on KJR in Seattle this morning and he said that M’s fans shouldn’t worry a thing about it. When asked about his next contract, Hernandez said: “… you guys [will] be happy, “I’m not going nowhere  … I promise.” That part comes around…

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

    Aug 21, 2012, 6:07 AM EDT

    Jayson Werth, Danny Espinosa, Kurt Suzuki,

    Nationals 5, Braves 4: I suppose you can yell at Dan Uggla for messing up the play with the infield in and a runner on third in the 13th inning which allowed the winning run to score. But perhaps it’s also worth noting that the Braves played perhaps their most important game to date, in…

  18. Rays finish four-game sweep in Anaheim

    Aug 19, 2012, 6:56 PM EDT

    Matt Moore

    The Rays couldn’t manage so much as a hit or a walk Wednesday in Felix Hernandez‘s perfect game, but look at what they did to the Angels’ starters in four games since: Dan Haren: 3 2/3 IP, 7 H, 5 ER Jered Weaver: 3 IP, 8 H, 9 ER C.J. Wilson: 4 2/3 IP, 6…

    Aug 17, 2012, 8:02 PM EDT

    Dan Haren

    It’s not hard to see why the Angels aren’t winning. Here’s how their rotation has fared since the All-Star break: Jered Weaver: 5-1, 2.83 ERA Dan Haren: 2-2, 5.04 ERA Ervin Santana: 2-1, 5.06 ERA Zack Greinke: 1-1, 5.54 ERA (since being acquired) C.J. Wilson: 0-4, 5.61 ERA Besides Kevin Jepsen, all of the relievers…

  20. Robinson Cano returns, Mark Teixeira sits with sore wrist

    Aug 17, 2012, 6:26 PM EDT

    Mark Teixeira

    The Yankees have Robinson Cano back from a sore neck Friday in the opener of a three-game series against the Red Sox, but Mark Teixeira is absent from the lineup due to an inflamed wrist, the LoHud Yankees Blog reports. Teixeira initially injured the wrist on July 29 and missed a couple of games. “It’s…

  21. A Felix Hernandez trade would help Mariners, not hurt them

    Aug 16, 2012, 6:14 PM EDT

    Felix Hernandez

    So, yeah, the response to Wednesday’s “Seattle should probably trade Felix Hernandez” column wasn’t entirely positive. I understand it was a case of raining on the parade, and I’m sorry about that. Still, it was an angle of the story that needed to be covered. Now that I’ve had a day to think more on…

  22. The most predictable New York Daily News story ever

    Aug 16, 2012, 3:23 PM EDT

    Felix Hernandez

    I swear on a stack of Bibles that yesterday, while I was hanging around the NBC Sports Network studio watching Felix Hernandez polish off his perfect game, I said aloud that a New York paper was guaranteed to run the classic “the Yankees need to acquire King Felix” story today. I said that I’d bet…

    Seattle Mariners v New York Yankees

    The Double-A Jackson Generals — who play their home games in Jackson, Tennessee — were over 2,300 miles away from the mound at Seattle’s Safeco Field when Mariners ace Felix Hernandez finished off his perfect game against the Rays on Wednesday afternoon. But they celebrated like they were there: As Zach Sanders of FanGraphs correctly…

  25. Felix Hernandez: MLB’s best young pitcher in 20 years

    Aug 15, 2012, 8:49 PM EDT

    Felix Hernandez

    That’s pretty defensible, right. Felix Hernandez debuted at 19, and while he wasn’t great right away — in fact, he was pretty disappointing his first three years — he’s provided a ton of value to the Mariners in going 96-72 with a 3.17 ERA in 230 career starts to date. Baseball-reference WAR rates him as…
