    R.A.

    Blue Jays

    Bill Madden of the Daily News reports that the Blue Jays, off to an awful start, held a players-only, closed-door meeting yesterday DeRosa would later call a players-only meeting to reiterate a lot of what beleaguered Blue Jay manager John Gibbons said to the media the day before … “There’s just a bad vibe creeping in…

  3. R.A. Dickey says the Yankees were stalling yesterday

    Apr 29, 2013, 9:34 AM EDT

    Toronto Blue Jays starting pitcher R.A. Dickey looks towards the New York Yankees dugout after Yankees Lyle Overbay hit a go ahead two-run home run during the seventh inning of their MLB American League baseball game at Yankee Stadium in New York

    Yesterday R.A. Dickey gave up a homer to Lyle Overbay in the seventh inning. The next batter, Eduardo Nunez, came up to bat, but before he did he called time, had the trainer come out and help him get something out of his eye.  At least that’s what appeared to happen. Dickey says it was…

  4. Anibal Sanchez had himself a ballgame

    Apr 26, 2013, 9:48 PM EDT

    Atlanta Braves v Detroit Tigers

    With all due respect to Nationals starter Jordan Zimmermann, the author of a one-hit shutout against the Cincinnati Reds, Anibal Sanchez was tonight’s best pitcher. The right-hander, who signed a five-year, $80 million contract with the Tigers back in December, shut out the Braves with a franchise record 17 strikeouts over eight innings. The Braves…

  5. Yankees’ Ivan Nova, Francisco Cervelli exit with injuries

    Apr 26, 2013, 8:08 PM EDT

    Ivan Nova

    At this rate, the Yankees might run out of players. Two more players are headed to the infirmary as pitcher Ivan Nova and catcher Francisco Cervelli both exited tonight’s game against the Blue Jays with injuries. Cervelli hurt his hand on a foul ball from Jays batter Rajai Davis in the first inning, per ESPN’s…

    Apr 26, 2013, 9:34 AM EDT

    Josh Johnson

    Guys, you’re not gonna believe this, but Josh Johnson is hurt: More bad news for #bluejays. Aaron Laffey will start tonight in place of Josh Johnson, who has right triceps tightness. — Jerry Crasnick (@jcrasnick) April 26, 2013   Nothing new for Johnson, of course. When he’s healthy he can be dominant, but since becoming…

    Apr 25, 2013, 6:54 AM EDT

    New York Mets' Valdespin celebrates after hitting grand-slam walk-off home run off Los Angeles Dodgers' Wall in MLB game in New York

    Mets 7, Dodgers 3: Jordany Valdespin with a walkoff grand slam. See, good things happen when he doesn’t try to bunt. Reds 1, Cubs 0: Mat Latos tossed seven shutout innings and Broxton and Chapman finished it off. Tough luck for Jeff Samardzija who struck out eight in six innings, but he’s gonna have to get used…

  8. Orioles lose extra-inning game for the first time in a year

    Apr 24, 2013, 5:21 PM EDT

    Toronto Blue Jays v Baltimore Orioles

    Baltimore had won 17 straight extra-inning games dating back to April 11, 2012, but that streak came to an end this afternoon against Toronto. Orioles closer Jim Johnson, who’d been such a huge part of all their late- and extra-inning success, walked Maicer Izturis with the bases loaded to force in the go-ahead run in…

    Apr 23, 2013, 6:46 AM EDT

    Oakland Athletics v Boston Red Sox

    Red Sox 9, Athletics 6: Just yesterday Mike Napoli was named player of the week for last week. He’s making a bid for a repeat now, hitting a grand slam and driving in five runs here. Overall he has 25 RBI in 19 games. Orioles 2, Blue Jays 1: Chris Tillman had a one hitter…

  11. Travis Hafner stole a base and tried to bunt for a hit

    Apr 22, 2013, 11:19 AM EDT

    Travis Hafner

    Not only is Travis Hafner hitting .319 with a 1.120 OPS for the Yankees, he’s turned back to the clock to when he was a bunting, base-stealing machine. Well, actually he’s never been either of those things. Until yesterday, that is. Hafner stole second base without a throw, which was his first steal since 2010…

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

    Apr 22, 2013, 6:22 AM EDT

    Detroit Tigers v Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

    Angels 4, Tigers 3: Watched most of this one as I painted a couple of rooms in my house. Two highlights of the game for me were (1) overhearing my girlfriend use some really bad language the second or third time the Tigers left the bases loaded; and (2) Tigers color commentator Rod Allen, when describing…

  13. Jose Bautista is back in the lineup (again)

    Apr 19, 2013, 7:05 PM EDT

    Toronto Blue Jays' Bautista hits a two-run home run against the Kansas City Royals in the sixth inning of their MLB American League baseball game in Kansas City, Missouri

    It’s been a tough start to the 2013 season for Blue Jays slugger Jose Bautista. He missed a few games in the first week with an ankle sprain, and missed the entirety of his team’s recently-completed four-game series against the White Sox due to back spasms. Much to the delight of Jays fans, Bautista is…

  14. Travis d’Arnaud expected to miss eight weeks

    Apr 19, 2013, 4:10 PM EDT

    Travis d'Arnaud

    The good news for Mets prospect Travis d’Arnaud is that he won’t need surgery to repair a non-displaced fracture in his left foot. The bad news is that manager Terry Collins told Adam Rubin of ESPN New York that the Triple-A catcher is expected to miss eight weeks. d’Arnaud was off to a solid start…

    Apr 19, 2013, 6:48 AM EDT

  17. Marlins place Adeiny Hechavarria on DL with elbow injury

    Apr 18, 2013, 1:50 PM EDT

    Adeiny Hechavarria, Jayson Werth

    Miami has placed starting shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria on the disabled list with a bruised right elbow suffered Wednesday during pregame warmups. Like most of the Marlins he was off to a bad start, hitting just .184 in 14 games, but Hechavarria is around for his defense at shortstop and the Marlins’ unappealing fill-in options include…

  18. Mets prospect Travis d’Arnaud out with fractured foot

    Apr 18, 2013, 1:20 PM EDT

    Travis d'Arnaud

    It’s a moot point with John Buck doing his best Babe Ruth impression, but any thoughts of the Mets calling up catching prospect Travis d’Arnaud are on hold because of a foot injury. Marc Carig of New York Newsday reports that d’Arnaud suffered a non-displaced fracture thanks to taking a foul ball off his left foot…

    peavy getty wide

    Toronto made a huge splash this offseason, but general manager Alex Anthopoulos has hinted that he was close to pulling off another big move that fell through. According to Shi Davidi of SportsNet that move would have been trading for White Sox right-hander Jake Peavy. Peavy had a $22 million team option that the White…

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

    Apr 16, 2013, 6:03 AM EDT

    Dustin Pedroia, Joel Peralta, Jose Lobaton

    Red Sox 3, Rays 2: Mike Napoli‘s RBI double in the ninth sent everyone home happy. The happiness would last less than an hour after game time, sadly. The Red Sox are now in Cleveland, which all things considered is probably a good thing. Padres 6, Dodgers 3: No one threw at anyone, so that’s…

    Apr 15, 2013, 8:20 AM EDT

    Wrap

    God, wasn’t that family thing/working/cleaning/ thing a pain in the butt this weekend? Kept you from paying attention to baseball? Yeah, me too. Thankfully, then, here is everything you missed that mattered: Jose Reyes is gonna be gone a while. Josh Hamilton continued to distinguish himself. As the hour gets late in the bar, everyone…

  24. Still too early to worry about faltering aces

    Apr 13, 2013, 6:05 PM EDT

    Toronto Blue Jays' starting pitcher Dickey throws against the Boston Red Sox during the first inning of their MLB American League baseball game in Toronto

    The ERA leaderboard, organized greatest to least, is a bit of a shocker. At the top you’ll find both of the defending Cy Young award winners (David Price and R.A. Dickey), as well as Cole Hamels, Matt Cain, and Stephen Strasburg, among others. You’ll hear this a lot but it bears repeating: it’s still very…

    Jose Reyes Reuters

According to Scott MacArthur of TSN Radio 1050, Blue Jays general manager Alex Anthopoulos told reporters in Kansas City this afternoon that Reyes is expected to miss three months.
