Posted on June 4, 2019, by Bryan Zarpentine Much like Dallas Keuchel, closer Craig Kimbrel is no longer attached to draft pick compensation after the start of the MLB Draft on Monday. That means teams no longer have to sacrifice a pick for signing him, opening the door for him to finally sign with a […]

Posted on June 3, 2019, by Bryan Zarpentine The end may be near but it’s not quite here for veteran Carlos Gonzalez. On Monday, the Chicago Cubs summoned Gonzalez back to the big leagues. The move comes just two days after the Cubbies signed CarGo to a minor league deal. The 33-year-old Gonzalez will now […]

Posted on June 3, 2019, by Bryan Zarpentine The MLB Draft begins Monday night, and that means free agents who declined qualifying offers are no longer tied to draft-pick compensation. That means the action is likely to pick up on free agents Dallas Keuchel and Craig Kimbrel, as the team that signs them will no […]

Posted on June 2, 2019, by Bryan Zarpentine Over a year and a half since his last start, Jimmy Nelson is finally ready to return to the Milwaukee Brewers. After missing all of 2018 following shoulder surgery, Nelson will be activated on Wednesday and make his season debut against the Miami Marlins. It will be […]

Posted on June 2, 2019, by Bryan Zarpentine When you’re the Seattle Mariners, it’s always trading season, even in early June.

The Phillies have acquired power-hitting outfielder Jay Bruce in exchange for third base prospect Jake Scheiner. As part […]

Posted on May 31, 2019, by Bryan Zarpentine It’s been a rollercoaster of a 2019 season for Colorado Rockies ace Kyle Freeland. That rollercoaster has now thrown him off the tracks altogether with the lefty landing back in the minors. On Friday, the Rockies optioned Freeland back to triple-A where he will try to make […]

Posted on May 31, 2019, by Bryan Zarpentine It appears as if a rough month of May for the St. Louis Cardinals will end in a rather fitting way. On Friday, the Cardinals placed veteran catcher Yadier Molina on the 10-day Injured List because of a tendon strain in his right thumb. After struggling throughout […]

Posted on May 29, 2019, by Bryan Zarpentine Something the Houston Astros hoped would be a small issue has turned into something a little more serious. The Astros placed shortstop Carlos Correa on the 10-day Injured List on Wednesday after learning he has a fractured rib. Correa becomes the third key position player Houston has […]

Posted on May 27, 2019, by Bryan Zarpentine It’s possible that Boston Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia has already played his last game. That was the message he delivered at a Monday press conference in which he expressed uncertainty about his future. The press conference was held on the day the Red Sox officially […]

Posted on May 27, 2019, by Bryan Zarpentine As the Colorado Rockies struggle to assert themselves as contenders in the National League, they’ll be ending May without the services of Charlie Blackmon. The Rockies added the veteran outfielder to the 10-day Injured List on Monday due to a calf strain. Blackmon has already missed three […]

Posted on May 25, 2019, by Bryan Zarpentine The Houston Astros are about to endure life without center fielder George Springer. On Saturday, the Astros added Springer to the 10-day Injured List after he left Friday’s game with a hamstring injury. Prior to Wednesday, the Astros had already been without Springer for several days due […]

Posted on May 23, 2019, by Bryan Zarpentine Despite recently taking over first place in the AL East, the New York Yankees only seem to see the number of players on their Injured List grow and grow. On Thursday, starter CC Sabathia joined that ever-growing list. The 38-year-old is once again dealing with knee pain […]
