The defending World Series champions are heading back to the scene of the crime. After defeating the Mets in five games in the Fall Classic last year, the Royals make their first trip back to Citi Field.
It’s not often a baseball team flies halfway across the country to play a road game sandwiched between two home games. In fact, the Orioles haven’t had a one-game road trip with home games immediately before and after since June 25, 1967, according to STATS, LLC. But a rainout in Texas in April has forced […]
For the second time in less than three weeks, Orioles manager Buck Showalter told right-hander Mike Wright he was being sent down to Triple-A. That discussion has left Showalter and the O’s with another decision to make for Wednesday’s start against San Diego when Wright’s turn comes around.
Mariners starter Taijuan Walker threw five scoreless innings against the Red Sox in Sunday’s 2-1 loss, an impressive feat against the top-scoring team in the American League.
Father’s Day can mean different things to different people. The general idea though is to honor or remember a father or father figure who had an immeasurable impact on our lives. To Chicago Cubs superstar Anthony Rizzo, that in part means honoring one of his own. As in, one of his very own teammates, David […]
Second chances don’t come often in life. You rarely get the opportunity to redo something you screwed up or missed out on. On Sunday, one Boston Red Sox fan was in the right place at the right time not just once, but twice, and he got to correct a pretty embarrassing mistake. The Red Sox […]
The Arizona Diamondbacks had an explosive offseason. They signed pitcher Zack Greinke to a six-year contract worth more than $200 million. They traded shortstop Dansby Swanson, their first overall pick in the 2015 draft, to the Atlanta Braves for pitcher Shelby Miller. They traded for second baseman Jean Segura. They made big moves, and expected […]

Jered Weaver has had a rough go of it in 2016. His strikeout numbers have fallen, his velocity has dipped considerably – his fastball now averages 83.3 mph – while the 18 home runs he’s allowed lead all of baseball. But on Sunday, save for the velocity, Weaver looked like his old three-time All-Star self […]
Paul Clemens aims to leave a lasting impression in his 2016 debut for the Marlins as he takes on a revamped Jorge De La Rosa and the Rockies to close out a four-game series on Monday at Marlins Park.
The Rockies placed right-hander Tyler Chatwood on the 15-day disabled list with a mid-back strain and recalled righty reliever Scott Oberg from Triple-A Albuquerque on Sunday.
Rockies righty Miguel Castro is the same guy — same light-pole physique, same lengthy arms and same fingers — that produced electric results early in the season. But since missing a month with shoulder inflammation, he’s the same pitcher only some of the time.
