  1. Winners and losers at the trade deadline

    Jul 31, 2012, 4:49 PM EST

    Rangers celebrate

    One person’s thoughts on who made out best and worst at the trade deadline. Winners Texas Rangers: GM Jon Daniels wasn’t interested in parting with third baseman Mike Olt, much less shortstop Jurickson Profar, in order to counter the Angels’ Zack Greinke pickup, but he was able to keep his best prospects and land Ryan…

    Lets make a deal

    The 2012 non-waiver trade deadline has come and gone. Here’s your summary of who went where and for whom: 7/31/12: The Indians Acquire 1B Lars Anderson from the Red Sox for RHP Steven Wright. Quick Take: Anderson is a once-promising slugger who has seemingly run out of gas on his third time through Triple-A. Wright…

    Shaun Marcum Getty

    Shaun Marcum has been out since mid-June with an elbow injury and suffered a setback last week, causing the Brewers to transfer him from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day DL. Milwaukee made the move to open up a spot on the 40-man roster for reliever Fautino De Los Santos, who was acquired from Oakland…

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

    Philadelphia Phillies v Atlanta Braves

    Braves 6, Phillies 2: Pretty good day for me yesterday. I took Mookie and Carlo to an amusement park and the Braves swept the Phillies. All I needed as a nice steak or something to cap the day and it would have been perfection.  Only the Astros, Rockies and Cubs have a bigger division deficit than the…

  5. Zack Greinke gets no help in losing Angels debut

    Jul 29, 2012, 7:02 PM EST

    Zack Greinke

    Without the injured Mike Trout at the top of the lineup, the Angels got nothing going offensively Sunday  and took a 2-0 loss to the Rays in Zack Greinke‘s debut. Greinke, who was acquired from the Brewers on Friday, was strong in striking out eight over seven innings, but Jeremy Hellickson was better, blanking the…

    Angels catcher Chris Iannetta hasn’t appeared in a major league game since fracturing his right wrist on May 8. But that will change on Sunday afternoon. According to MLB.com’s Alden Gonzalez, Iannetta has been activated from the disabled list and will start behind the plate in the Angels’ series-finale with the Rays. It’ll also be…

  7. Vernon Wells activated from disabled list

    Vernon Wells Reuters

    It went largely unnoticed in the excitement of the Zack Greinke deal, but the Angels activated Vernon Wells from the disabled list prior to last night’s game against the Rays. Wells had been out since May 21 after fracturing his right thumb while stealing a base. He went 8-for-26 (.308) with two home runs, a…

  8. Shaun Marcum’s return doesn’t sound imminent

    Jul 27, 2012, 9:30 PM EST

    Shaun Marcum Getty

    The Brewers just unloaded Zack Greinke for prospects, but they won’t have the chance to do the same with Shaun Marcum. Marcum is still trying to make it back from a right elbow injury which has kept him on the shelf since mid-June. He made it through a bullpen session earlier this week with no…

  9. For better or worse, Angels get their man

    Jul 27, 2012, 8:00 PM EST

    Zack Greinke, Sam Holbrook

    Already playing plenty well without him, the Angels will now be called World Series favorites after acquiring Zack Greinke from the Brewers on Friday night. In truth, though, they may not be any better than they were yesterday. In Greinke, the Angels are getting a pitcher with No. 1 starter stuff. He was the AL’s…

  10. Angels acquire Zack Greinke from the Brewers

    Jul 27, 2012, 7:42 PM EST

    Milwaukee Brewers v San Francisco Giants

    UPDATE: Morosi confirms that it’s Greinke for Segura, Hellweg and Pena. By the way, Segura, Hellweg and Pena were ranked as Angels’ second, fourth and ninth best prospects by Baseball America coming into the season. 7:38 PM Nothing official yet, but Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register writes that prospect right-handers Ariel Pena and…

  11. Trade rumors ain’t what they used to be

    Jul 27, 2012, 5:06 PM EST

    Rumors Timex Social Club

    Maybe it’s the Olympics. Maybe it’s something else. I have no idea, but it seems like we are way less awash in crazy, tenuous speculation, mystery teams, tire-kicking and this or that scoop writer “hearing this” or that.  To the extent there have been trade rumors, they’ve been pretty straight forward things like “a lot…

  12. Davey Johnson thinks Brewers will trade Zack Greinke before Sunday matchup with Nationals

    Jul 27, 2012, 1:16 PM EST

    greinke getty

    Zack Greinke is scheduled to make his final pre-trade deadline start Sunday versus Washington, but Nationals manager Davey Johnson doesn’t expect to actually face him. Johnson told Adam McCalvy of MLB.com that he’d “be real surprised” if Greinke is still on the Brewers by then, speculating that “if the ball club’s intent on making a…

  13. Angels, Orioles in mix for Francisco Liriano

    Jul 26, 2012, 6:15 PM EST

    Francisco Liriano

    A source told FOXSports.com’s Jon Morosi that the Angels and Orioles are continuing to pursue Twins left-hander Francisco Liriano in advance of next week’s trade deadline. Liriano appears about as likely to be dealt as any pitcher in the league right now. Since his inconsistency won’t stop him from receiving significant bids in free agency,…

  14. Brewers GM admits Zack Greinke will definitely be traded

    Jul 26, 2012, 1:50 PM EST

    greinke getty

    Brewers general manager Doug Melvin has dropped some very strong hints that he’ll be trading Zack Greinke before Tuesday’s deadline, but now he’s left zero doubt. Bob Nightengale of USA Today spoke to Melvin today and reports that he “will definitely be traded.” Melvin said previously that the Brewers would deal Greinke if they couldn’t…

  15. Zack Greinke: “I don’t really look forward to being traded”

    Jul 25, 2012, 10:47 AM EST

    Zack Greinke AP

    Milwaukee skipping Zack Greinke‘s turn in the rotation last week so he could “recharge his batteries” worked out pretty well, as Greinke returned last night with seven innings of one-run ball in what may be his final Brewers start. Afterward he declined to discuss the specifics of any contract extension talks, although he did apologize…

    Holy moley, an awful lot of big news happened overnight. Ramirez a Dodger? Cole Hamels almost remaining with Philly? There were even some games! Athletics 7, Blue Jays 2: The A’s are streaking. That’s six in a row. Derek Norris hit a two-run homer and Yoenis Cespedes drove in three with a single. The A’s success at…

  18. Zack Greinke confirms that the Brewers have made him an offer

    Jul 20, 2012, 7:30 PM EST

    Zack Greinke Getty

    Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com reported earlier today that the Brewers offered Zack Greinke a five-year, $100-plus million contract extension sometime within the past few weeks. Greinke didn’t deny it when asked by Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel before tonight’s game. “I can say Heyman is pretty accurate with what he’s saying, but nothing else,”…

  19. The Brewers offered Zack Greinke $100 million+, but he’s not signing

    Jul 20, 2012, 2:00 PM EST

    Zack Greinke

    Two days ago we heard a Jon Paul Morosi report that the Brewers and Zack Greinke have had no dialogue about a contract extension. Jon Heyman says that isn’t so: The Brewers offered star righthanded pitcher Zack Greinke a $100-million-plus, five-year deal sometime within the past few weeks, but there’s nothing yet to indicate he will sign quickly and…

  20. Brewers haven’t talked long-term deal with Zack Greinke

    Jul 18, 2012, 10:28 PM EST

    greinke getty

    FOX Sports’ Jon Paul Morosi provides the scoop: It doesn’t appear there has been much dialogue between the Brewers and representatives for Zack Greinke since spring training. As of Wednesday afternoon, there was no evidence that the team had made the 28-year-old a formal offer. And there isn’t much time left before the deadline for…

  21. Report: Angels make Peter Bourjos, Kendrys Morales available

    Jul 18, 2012, 6:20 PM EST

    Peter Bourjos

    According to Danny Knobler of CBSSports.com, the Angels are willing to part with Peter Bourjos in order to upgrade their bullpen and could consider dealing Kendrys Morales as well. Bourjos, perhaps baseball’s premier defensive center fielder, has been made expendable in Anaheim by the emergence of Mike Trout and Mark Trumbo. Still, there are a…

  22. Zack Greinke to rejoin Brewers rotation Tuesday vs. Phillies after “recharging his batteries”

    Jul 18, 2012, 4:16 PM EST

    Zack Greinke

    Earlier this week when the Brewers scratched Zack Greinke from his scheduled start today they insisted it was “recharging his batteries” and not because of a specific injury. Sure enough Jon Morosi of FOXSports.com reports that Greinke will avoid the disabled list and return to the rotation Tuesday against the Phillies. That would have been…

  23. The White Sox are reportedly interested in Zack Greinke

    Jul 16, 2012, 4:00 PM EST

    Zack Greinke

    Jon Heyman says that according to “sources” — god, I love mid-to-late July! — the White Sox are interested in Zack Greinke. No word on how serious it is or what they’d offer, but Greinke would certainly help them out.  The Sox’ rotation looks good at first blush with Chris Sale, Jack Peavy and Jose…

    Jul 16, 2012, 12:32 PM EST

    Zack Greinke AP

    UPDATE: Ken Rosenthal spoke with Doug Melvin, Brewers GM. Melvin says that nothing is physically wrong with Greinke and that the Brewers are just pushing him back and “recharging his batteries.” So, OK then. 12:32 PM: Mike Vassallo reports that Zack Greinke will not make his Wednesday start.

  25. The Yankees are unlikely to get Hamels; are cool on Zack Greinke, Matt Garza and Ryan Dempster

    Jul 16, 2012, 11:04 AM EST

    Zack Greinke

    The Yankees’ recent strong stretch combined with the continued stumbling of the Orioles, Sox and Rays has given them a bit of a cushion. That said, they’d still probably want to add a starter if they can. Bur from the sounds of it, they aren’t terribly eager to go big game hunting at the deadlines.…
