    The Yankees are, in my view anyway, unlikely to make the playoffs. Yet they refuse, Rasputin-like, to die.

    When the Diamondbacks traded top prospect Trevor Bauer to the Indians two offseasons ago in large part due to perceived attitude problems Arizona catcher Miguel Montero had some very harsh words.

    Before yesterday Trevor Bauer had been a mess in the majors, walking 29 batters in 33 career innings, but the former No. 3 overall pick tossed six impressive innings against the Padres to show that he might be back on track.

    I saw Captain America last night. It was way better than the first few innings of the Tigers-Dodgers game.

  7. Aaron Hill out 4-6 weeks with broken hand, Diamondbacks call up Didi Gregorius

    Apr 16, 2013, 3:49 PM EDT

    aaron hill getty

    Aaron Hill got hit on the left hand by a pitch on April 9, but X-rays came back negative and he made a pair of pinch-hitting appearances on April 13 and April 14. He even delivered an RBI double in one of them. But apparently he was doing that with a broken hand, which finally…

  8. HBT Weekend Wrap

    Wrap

    There’s a lot that goes on during the weekend of a baseball season. And a lot of you, for reasons that must make some sort of sense, but like, whatever, choose to only read HBT during the week while you’re at work. I guess that’s OK. I’m sure your family is nice. But you really…

  9. Indians option Trevor Bauer back to Triple-A Columbus

    Apr 7, 2013, 2:17 PM EDT

    trevor bauer getty

    As expected, the Indians have optioned right-hander Trevor Bauer back to Triple-A Columbus following his spot start on Saturday night vs. the Rays. Carlos Carrasco has been reinstated from suspension and will join the Indians’ rotation early this week. Bauer allowed three earned runs on two hits and seven walks Saturday in five innings at…

  10. Indians place Scott Kazmir on DL, call up Trevor Bauer

    Apr 4, 2013, 5:24 PM EDT

    Trevor Bauer

    Scott Kazmir‘s comeback is on hold because of an abdominal strain that has him headed to the disabled list and the Indians announced that top prospect Trevor Bauer will be called up from Triple-A to take his place in the rotation Saturday. Bauer was the No. 3 overall pick in the 2011 draft, almost immediately…

  13. Indians send top prospect Trevor Bauer to Triple-A

    Mar 21, 2013, 12:48 PM EDT

    Trevor Bauer

    No big surprise, but the Indians have sent top prospect Trevor Bauer to Triple-A after he was in the mix for the final rotation spot. Cleveland previously reassigned Daisuke Matsuzaka to minor-league camp, taking him out of the rotation mix, but fellow reclamation projection Scott Kazmir remains in the running along with Carlos Carrasco. Bauer…

  14. Pirates send former No. 1 pick Gerrit Cole to Triple-A

    Bob Nutting, Gerrit Cole

    Pittsburgh has reassigned Gerrit Cole to Triple-A after the former No. 1 overall pick threw 10 spring training innings. Michael Sanserino of the Pittsburgh Post Gazette writes that Cole “believes he is ready to pitch in the major leagues and was upset by the reassignment,” but realistically he was always likely to begin this season…

  16. Diamondbacks “looking to trade” John McDonald

    Mar 12, 2013, 3:15 PM EDT

    John McDonald, David Ortiz

    This offseason HardballTalk had several posts wondering why, exactly, the Diamondbacks seemed to be collecting light-hitting utility infielders. It turns out maybe they didn’t know why either. Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com reports that Arizona is now “looking to trade” John McDonald because he’s behind Willie Bloomquist and Cliff Pennington on the depth chart. And that’s…

  17. Blue Jays claim Lars Anderson off waivers from White Sox

    Lars Anderson

    Lars Anderson is now with his fourth organization in the past six months, as the Blue Jays claimed the former top prospect off waivers from the White Sox. Previously he was traded from the Red Sox to the Indians in July, got sent to the Diamondbacks in the three-team Shin-Soo Choo/Trevor Bauer deal, and then…

  18. Trevor Bauer: “I’m terrible at rapping”

    Feb 15, 2013, 10:15 AM EDT

    Trevor Bauer, Miguel Montero

    After making headlines yesterday over a new rap song he released online Indians right-hander Trevor Bauer met with manager Terry Francona and general manager Chris Antonetti, who presumably just said something like “stop doing stuff like this, please.” Publicly, though, Francona called it “a non-story.” Bauer later talked to reporters about the situation and made…

  19. Trevor Bauer has a new rap song about Twitter haters

    Feb 14, 2013, 11:19 AM EDT

    Trevor Bauer, Miguel Montero

    UPDATE: Bauer explained that the song is a response to criticism he’s received on Twitter, which … well, it’s not nearly as interesting as the other possibility and actually kind of sad. ========== Earlier this week Miguel Montero criticized Trevor Bauer by saying, among other things, “he never wanted to listen” when they were a…

  20. Trevor Bauer sidesteps Miguel Montero’s comments, praises the Constitution

    Feb 12, 2013, 4:30 PM EDT

    Trevor Bauer Getty

    We began this morning by talking about Miguel Montero talking about the young Trevor Bauer and his failure, at least in Montero’s eyes, to listen and to take instruction.  Someone on Twitter asked Bauer about that. His response: @baueroutage Trevor, what’d you think about your former catcher Miguel Montero’s comments on you being “difficult” to…

  21. Damaged goods? Didi Gregorius has a strained ulnar collateral ligament

    Feb 12, 2013, 2:31 PM EDT

    Cincinnati Reds v Chicago Cubs

    The Diamondbacks traded Trevor Bauer to the Indians and received shortstop Didi Gregorius back from the Reds in the three-team deal. But Didi is malfunctioning: Didi Gregorius, considered Arizona’s shortstop of the future, has a right elbow injury that has prevented him from throwing or batting for the past month. Diamondbacks general manager Kevin Towers revealed…

  22. Miguel Montero on Trevor Bauer: “He never wanted to listen”

    Feb 12, 2013, 6:48 AM EDT

    Trevor Bauer

    It was understood that the Diamondbacks trade of pitching prospect Trevor Bauer had more to do with the team’s opinion of his attitude than its opinion of his talent. Yes, he struggled during his callup last year, but he just turned 22 and struck out 11.5 batters per nine innings in two minor league seasons.…

    From Jon Heyman of CBS Sports comes word that the Indians have agreed to a minor league contract with right-handed starter Daisuke Matsuzaka. The deal carries an invitation to spring training, where the 32-year-old will be given a crack at a starting rotation spot. If he’s on the major league roster the entire season, he…

    Feb 1, 2013, 6:40 PM EDT

    Lars Anderson

    The Diamondbacks acquired first baseman Lars Anderson from the Indians in December as part of the three-team Trevor Bauer trade, but his stint with the club didn’t last long. After being designated for assignment last week following the Justin Upton deal, Anderson has been claimed off waivers by the White Sox. Once a top prospect…

    Trevor Bauer

    A brief respite from A-Rod things to revel in something basebally.  Like Trevor Bauer taking to YouTube to answer a fan’s question about how he grips his pitches: Baseball. It still exists. And it’s wonderful.
