In Paul DeJong’s first Major League at-bat on May 28, he hit a home run. Sixty-four games and 244 at-bats later, DeJong has added 16 more homers to his Cardinals’ resume and now leads the team, including what proved to be a game-deciding solo shot in the seventh inning of Saturday’s 6-5 win over the […]
.@Giancarlo818 blasts never get old. pic.twitter.com/03nJCIre9l — MLB (@MLB) August 12, 2017 Is Giancarlo Stanton even human? The Miami Marlins behemoth became the first player in 2017 to hit 40 home runs with a monster shot off Colorado Rockies right-hander Jon Gray on Friday. In doing so, he becomes only the second player in franchise […]
It only took Nolan Arenado until the third inning Friday to reach the century mark yet again. The Colorado Rockies third baseman entered the game with 98 RBIs on the season and then smacked a two-run home run off Miami Marlins starter Jose Urena to tally 100 RBIs for a third-straight season. 1⃣0⃣0⃣ RBIs Production […]
Beltre accomplished the feat on Sunday against the Orioles
Not since the year Willie Mays made “The Catch” has Major League Baseball seen this kind of dominance from two teams halfway through a season. The Los Angeles Dodgers and Houston Astros have both been on record paces to start 2017, and Houston's 5-0 win over the Philadelphia Phillies on Tuesday night ensured the two […]
David Phelps arrived at Safeco Field on Friday, ready to get to work. It’s unclear in what role the Mariners will use their new reliever, but he’s ready for anything and that suits his new team perfectly.
Don’t expect the Astros to stand pat at the Trade Deadline like they did last year. Despite a remarkable 60-29 record in the first half of the season and a huge lead in the American League West, the Astros could use a couple of more arms for the playoffs.
The Pirates ended the first half with a bang, putting together a 10-run first inning in Sunday’s 14-3 win over the Cubs at Wrigley Field. They went out on a high note, too, winning five of their last six games. Where do the Pirates stand as they pause for the All-Star break?
A year ago, the Angels entered the All-Star break with a 37-52 mark, felled in large part by a starting rotation that was decimated by injuries. A similar script unfolded this season, but with an added kick, as the Angels saw three starters and their superstar, Mike Trout, land on the disabled list for extended […]
The Cubs have agreed to a $1 million deal with shortstop Luis Verdugo of La Paz, Baja California, according to industry sources. Verdugo, is ranked No. 30 on MLBPipeline.com’s Top 30 International Prospects list. Chicago is also the favorite to sign right-handed pitcher Florencio Serrano, also of Mexico, for a deal near $1 million. The […]
Maybe it’s time to acknowledge the obvious: The Rays are playing pretty good baseball. Let the numbers speak for themselves.
The Blue Jays’ road to .500 will continue for at least a couple of more days. Toronto dropped to 0-8 when trying to reach the .500 mark and the club has been outscored, 62-20, in those games. The latest one took place Tuesday night in a 6-1 loss to the Rangers.
