  3. Joey Votto thinks Billy Hamilton could be an MVP candidate if he learns to draw walks

    Mar 21, 2014, 10:45 PM EDT

    Billy Hamilton

    Billy Hamilton is already dealing with pressure, as he is taking over as the Reds’ center fielder and lead-off man at the age of 23. Many expect him to become the fourth player since the turn of the millennium to steal 70-plus bases, joining Jacoby Ellsbury (2009), Jose Reyes (2007), and Scott Podsednik (2004). He…

    Feb 27, 2014, 2:52 PM EDT

    Arizona Diamondbacks v Colorado Rockies

    The Diamondbacks currently have youngsters Didi Gregorius and Chris Owings fighting it out for their shortstop job, but they’ve weighed settling the battle with a trade, the Arizona Republic’s Nick Piecoro reports. The preference would be to acquire a catcher who could potentially back up Miguel Montero in the near future and eventually supplant him…

    Taylor Teagarden

    Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports that the Mets have added some catching depth by signing Taylor Teagarden to a minor-league contract with an invitation to spring training. Teagarden was once considered a pretty solid catching prospect, but now he’s 30 years with a lengthy injury history and just 163 total games in the…

    Dec 1, 2013, 6:05 PM EDT

    Minnesota Twins v Chicago White Sox - Game One

    The non-tender deadline is tomorrow and there is a chance that the White Sox could non-tender catcher Tyler Flowers. Flowers himself believes there’s slightly better than a 50-50 chance he stays in Chicago, per MLB.com’s Scott Merkin: “I put it at 51-49 in favor of staying because of the contractual conversation we’ve had before,” Flowers…

    Billy Hamilton

    Reds manager Dusty Baker declined to start Billy Hamilton again Monday after his three-hit day Sunday, instead reserving him for pinch-running duties. When he did go to him in the eighth, it produced a memorable sequence. Hamilton pinch-ran for Ryan Hanigan with two outs and none on in a tie game in the bottom of…

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

    Sep 16, 2013, 5:00 AM EDT

    Zero Effect

    Mets 1, Marlins 0: There were 12 pitchers in this game. Eleven of them didn’t allow any runs, including both starters, Dillon Gee and Tom Koehler. Travis d’Arnaud singled off Zach Phillips in the 12th for the game’s only run. All of those zeroes made me think of one of my favorite movies of all time. Quite…

    New York Mets John Buck high-fives teammate Ike Davis in game against Twins in Minneapolis

    When the Marlins included John Buck in their blockbuster deal with the Blue Jays in December, they were mostly happy to get rid of his salary. He was later considered a throw-in as part of the deal that brought top prospects Travis d’Arnaud and Noah Syndergaard to the Mets for R.A. Dickey. However, the 32-year-old…

    Jedd Gyorko

    The AL had an historic Rookie of the Year class last year, but this year, the NL appears to have the stronger group of the two leagues. The one issue: a lot of these talents are likely to have to wait until June or July for their opportunities, if they come this year at all.…

  13. Domonic Brown may finally get his chance

    Mar 8, 2013, 8:15 PM EDT

    Domonic Brown

    Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro, amid all of his wheeling and dealing over the years, had one hard and fast rule: hands off Domonic Brown. Amaro traded for Cliff Lee, Roy Halladay, Roy Oswalt, and Hunter Pence, completely depleting his team’s farm system but for one player. Brown was rated the #4 overall prospect by…

  15. Travis d’Arnaud could make the Mets out of spring training

    Jan 18, 2013, 9:20 AM EDT

    Jeff Mathis; Travis d'Arnaud

    The Mets aren’t likely to compete in 2013 and, as such, keeping Travis d’Arnaud‘s service time clock from starting would probably be a wise thing for the Mets to do. And they probably will, but Sandy Alderson isn’t saying that’s a mortal lock: “I just don’t want to rule anything out,” Alderson said. “But at the…

    The Mets jumped at the chance to trade R.A. Dickey to the Blue Jays earlier this week in exchange for catchers Travis d’Arnaud and John Buck, prospect right-hander Noah Syndergaard and prospect outfielder Wuilmer Becerra. While it’s a tall order, they now need to find a way to replace the 2012 NL Cy Young Award…
