    Chicago White Sox v Texas Rangers

    In their quest to find a second baseman, the Braves have signed Tyler Greene to a Minor League deal and assigned him to Triple-A Gwinnett, the team announced via Twitter. Greene, who turned 30 years old today, was released by the White Sox on Tuesday. We learned last night that GM Frank Wren had been…

    Gordon Beckham is back from the disabled list after missing nearly two months with a broken hamate bone in his left hand. Beckham spent eight games rehabbing at Triple-A, going 12-for-36 (.333) with two doubles, and to make room for his return the White Sox designated Tyler Greene for assignment. Jeff Keppinger has been the…

  3. Angel Hernandez blows game-winner, Hawk Harrelson displeased

    Alex Rios

    It wasn’t a very good night for first-base umpires Friday. Angel Hernandez cost the White Sox a win over the Marlins in the 10th, though they did come back and prevail in the 11th anyway. MLB.com has the video and, more importantly, also has the audio as Hawk Harrelson reacts to the call. Alex Rios was…

    Gordon Beckham

    Gordon Beckham exited Tuesday’s game after tweaking his left wrist on a swing and the White Sox just announced that he has a fractured hamate bone. Dan Hayes of CSNChicago.com reports that Beckham will need surgery and is expected to miss 6-8 weeks, which could knock him out until July. Beckham has mostly struggled since…

    Released by the Astros last week, Tyler Greene has agreed to a minor-league deal with the White Sox. Greene was a first-round pick in 2005, but he’s hit just .224 with a .647 OPS in 266 games through age 29. He does have a little pop and good speed, so he could carve out a…

  6. Astros release Tyler Greene

    Mar 26, 2013, 1:20 PM EDT

    At the beginning of spring training Tyler Greene seemingly had a good chance to be the Astros’ starting shortstop, but today Houston released the former first-round pick. Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow originally drafted Greene when he was with the Cardinals and figured he was worth taking a flier on, picking him up on the…

  7. Astros cut Tyler Greene, will start Ronny Cedeno at short

    Mar 24, 2013, 9:36 AM EDT

    tyler greene getty

    According to Brian T. Smith of the Houston Chronicle, the Astros have informed shortstop Tyler Greene that he will not make the 25-man roster. He is out of options, so they’re looking to trade him. If they can’t pull that off, he will probably be released. Ronny Cedeno, who was signed to a deal Saturday after…

  8. Astros agree to deal with Ronny Cedeno

    Mar 23, 2013, 9:05 PM EDT

    Ronny Cedeno

    Released by the St. Louis Cardinals earlier in the week, infielder Ronny Cedeno already has a new home, reports MLB.com’s Brian McTaggart: Cedeno, 30, will provide some middle infield depth for the Astros, who have yet to see either Tyler Greene or Marwin Gonzalez seize the starting shortstop job. Cedeno has played mostly shortstop in…

  10. Tony DeFrancesco gets his first win as Astros manager

    Aug 25, 2012, 10:31 AM EDT

    Tony DeFrancesco AP

    He had to wait a while, but Tony DeFrancesco finally has his first win as a major league manager, as the Astros topped the Mets 3-1 last night at Citi Field. DeFrancesco managed 17 years in the minors before taking over for Brad Mills last Sunday and was 0-4 as interim manager going into last…

  11. Astros acquire infielder Tyler Greene from Cardinals

    Aug 9, 2012, 1:18 PM EDT

    tyler greene getty

    Before becoming Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow spent years running the Cardinals’ farm system and today he acquired one of his former first-round picks, Tyler Greene, from St. Louis. Greene was the 30th overall pick in the 2005 draft out of Georgia Tech, but is now 28 years old and hasn’t hit in the majors…

  12. What will the Cardinals do with Allen Craig when Lance Berkman returns?

    Jul 3, 2012, 12:16 PM EDT

    Allen Craig

    It seems crazy to think about considering how wrecked by injuries the Cardinals have been all season, but they could be on the verge of having too many quality hitters to fit into the lineup. Lance Berkman is nearing a return from knee surgery and looks likely to come off the disabled list shortly after…

  13. The end of last night’s Royals/Cardinals game was pretty wild

    AP Tyler Greene Humberto Quintero

    The end of last night’s game between the Royals and Cardinals was truly bizarre. Jonathan Broxton entered the bottom of the ninth with a 3-2 lead and retired the first two batters he faced before giving up a two-out single to Tyler Greene. With Rafael Furcal at the plate as a pinch-hitter, Greene took off…

  14. Johan Santana throws first no-hitter in Mets’ history

    Johan Santana Reuters

    UPDATE: He did it! Johan Santana has done it. He has thrown the first no-hitter in Mets’ history. Unbelievable. 9:31 PM: Santana has now held the Cardinals hitless through eight innings. He got Tyler Greene to pop up to Kirk Nieuwenhuis for the first out and struck out Shane Robinson looking before issuing a two-out…

    Mark Ellis Getty

    More good news for Mark Ellis. Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times reports that Ellis was released from the hospital today, six days after he underwent an emergency fasciotomy which may have saved his left leg. Ellis injured the leg when he was taken out on a slide at second base by Cardinals’ infielder…

    May 22, 2012, 6:10 AM EDT

    Giancarlo Stanton

    Marlins 7, Rockies 4: Jamie Moyer pitched in his 50th different major league park. But he may have given up his longest most hellacious homer ever. Giancarlo Stanton hit a grand slam that went 438 feet in basically a straight line and broke the friggin’ scoreboard. Roy Hobbs stuff, there. Gave the Marlins the lead and,…

  17. Mark Ellis out at least six weeks after emergency fasciotomy

    ellis getty

    Mark Ellis had to undergo an emergency fasciotomy Saturday to relieve pressure in his left leg after being upended by the Cardinals’ Tyler Greene while attempting to turn a double play on Friday night. He made it through the procedure fine but will be sidelined “at least six weeks” according to beat man Dylan Hernandez…

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

    Chris Davis

    Orioles 9, Red Sox 6: Just your standard seventeen inning affair in which a first baseman is the winning pitcher, after throwing two shutout innings and and outfielder is the losing pitcher after giving up a three-run homer . Chris Davis shut out the Red Sox for the 16th and 17th innings, striking out two.…

    Minnesota Twins v New York Yankees

    Twins 6, Yankees 5: Justin Morneau hit two homers. That’s four homers in six games, which hopefully means that Morneau is back to his mashing ways. Jason Marquis, who missed most of spring training when his daughter was seriously injured in a bicycle accident, made his first ever start in Yankee Stadium and got the…

  20. Adam Wainwright throws first batting practice session of the spring

    Adam Wainwright AP

    Adam Wainwright required Tommy John surgery after feeling discomfort in his right elbow while throwing batting practice almost exactly one year ago. Earlier today, Wainwright was right back at it, throwing batting practice to teammates at Cardinals’ camp in Jupiter, Florida. While Wainwright hasn’t felt any soreness or tightness in his surgically-repaired elbow thus far,…

  21. Running down the rosters: St. Louis Cardinals

    Feb 13, 2012, 6:00 PM EDT

    2011 World Series Game 7 - Texas Rangers v St Louis Cardinals

    The World Series champion Cardinals will go it without Albert Pujols, but the additions of Adam Wainwright (back from Tommy John surgery) and Carlos Beltran should sufficiently make up for that. On paper this year’s team looks just as good as the one that won it all. Of course, last year’s winners wouldn’t have sniffed the postseason…

  22. Cardinals sign infielder Alex Cora to minor-league contract

    Feb 6, 2012, 1:20 PM EDT

    Alex Cora

    Alex Cora‘s deal with the Cardinals is official, with Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post Dispatch reporting that the veteran utility infielder agreed to a minor-league contract with an invitation to spring training.

    Big news this Super Bowl Sunday. OK, not quite. According to Jesse Sanchez of MLB.com, the Cardinals are nearing agreement on a minor league deal with 36-year-old free agent infielder Alex Cora. It’s not clear whether the pact will include an invitation to spring training, but Cora would be doutbful to crack St. Louis’ Opening…

  24. Tyler Greene could start at second base for the Cardinals

    Jan 14, 2012, 10:09 PM EDT

    tyler greene getty

    Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak told reporters back in November that Daniel Descalso had a leg up on starting second base duties. But the 25-year-old is far from locked into that role. According to B.J. Rains of Fox Sports Midwest, Mozeliak said Saturday at the Cardinals’ Winter Warm-Up that Tyler Greene “will get every chance”…

    Dec 6, 2011, 8:23 PM EDT

    Albert Pujols, Matt Holliday

    Because that certainly seems to be the way things are going down at the moment. The Cardinals were supposed to be set at first base and in right field if Pujols departed, as Lance Berkman would move a first base position that fits him a whole lot better anyway and Allen Craig would take over…
