Friday night at Comerica Park, Anibal Sanchez came within two batters of finding elite fame in baseball's all-time a
Curtis Granderson suffered another unfortunate strike from fate. This one came to his left hand.
He was hit by a pitch in the fifth inning and left the game to undergo X-Rays. The results showed that the Yankees' outfielder had fractured the knuckle on his left pinky finger.
It is the second t
The Red Sox placed third baseman Will Middlebrooks and outfielder Shane Victorino on the 15-day disabled list, the team announced Friday.

Twins third baseman Trevor Plouffe remained with the team and was scheduled to undergo a full-impact test before Thursday's game at Comerica Park.
Plouffe, placed Wednesday on the seven-day concussion disabled list, was admittedly groggy after taking a Dan Uggla knee to the back of the head on a
Epy Guerrero, a pioneer of Dominican baseball and the most influential scout in Blue Jays history, died Thursday morning in the Dominican Republic at the age of 71.

Toronto Blue Jays left-hander J.A. Happ said a package containing a knee brace didn't arrive Thursday as hoped, so Friday will be the earliest he'll try throwing outdoors since he suffered injuries in a graphic May 7 episode.

All signs are pointing toward Jered Weaver's returning to the rotation next week, but the team won't make a final decision until the right-hander throws in the bullpen this weekend.
"It's very encouraging," Manager Mike Scioscia said. "We're going to see how he comes out of his bullpen, and if ev
This is what the Angels were expecting from themselves all along — a robust offense, steady pitching and a sense of confidence every time they take the field.
They didn’t get much of it in April, but now, in the season’s eighth week, the Angels are beginning to see what they can do when all
If you ever wondered what it was like to see Hack Wilson drive in those record 191 runs for the 1930 Cubs, Miguel Cabrera is providing a reenactment.
Cabrera drove in the Tigers’ first three runs Thursday night with a two-run home run and a single. That gives him 13 RBIs in the past four games
Travis Snider's run-scoring triple in the second inning Thursday was clutch, but it was the finishing touch the right fielder put on the head-first slide into third base that made it even more memorable.
Snider was still face down when he lifted his arms toward the Pirates' dugout and flashed th
The Baltimore Orioles unveiled what promises to be a future star in right-hander Kevin Gausman on Thursday night.
The Blue Jays countered with something better -- the home run power of Edwin Encarnacion and J.P. Arencibia.
The muscle of Encarnacion and Arencibia prevailed this night as, thanks
It was a play ripped out of the post-breakup handbook.
After a bitter ending with the Red Sox two years ago, Terry Francona was eventually able to find something new and at present something hotter.
That something was the Cleveland Indians.

The Phillies have placed Chase Utley on the 15-day DL with a "very mild" Grade 1 oblique strain, the Phillies announced. There is no corresponding intercostal or ribcage injury. The team expects him to return in two to four weeks.

The Mets have clearly reached the countdown stage to Zack Wheeler's major league debut.
A high-ranking team official told The Post on Thursday that barring a setback, the club's top pitching prospect is expected to make 2-3 more starts for Triple-A Las Vegas and then join the Mets. If Wheeler remai
At last, Logan Morrison is feeling like his game is on solid footing. It's been a long, laborious process for the 25-year-old Marlins first baseman, who is battling back from a surgically-repaired right knee.
But after opening the season on the 60-day disabled list and undergoing weeks of recuper
The Twins gave Vance Worley 10 starts to find his groove. On Wednesday, they finally ran out of patience.
The Twins optioned their Opening Day starter to Triple-A Rochester after he was shelled for eight runs on 10 hits in an 8-3 loss to the Atlanta Braves. Three of the hits were homers, includin
Reality didn't set in for Orioles pitching prospect Kevin Gausman that he was heading to the major leagues until the moment he boarded his connection flight to Baltimore on Wednesday morning.
"Then, I just kinda was thinking, you know, 'Wow, I'm really here. It's crazy,'" Gausman said. "I wish I
On the heels of a six-game losing streak and a 2-7 road trip, the Seattle Mariners will make an expected and needed roster move sometime today.
Catcher Jesus Montero will be sent to Triple A Tacoma, while catcher Jesus Sucre will be selected from the Rainiers. Double A back-up catcher Brandon Ban
Rafael Betancourt walked down the clubhouse hallway without a limp, the most obvious sign that he wasn't going on the disabled list.
His right groin required only an anti-inflammatory injection, and after two days of rest he should return to his closer role for Colorado at San Francisco.
Red Sox GM Ben Cherington, in an appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show, said that the Red Sox have talked at various points with outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury about the possibility of something other than a one-year deal.

When Marlins manager Mike Redmond finished his injury update before batting practice Tuesday, he smiled.
“We’re starting to move some dirt,” Redmond said. “That feels good.”
Yes, the Marlins are getting healthier — and thereby moving some dirt.
On Wednesday, slugger Giancarlo S
Chase Utley took his first swing in batting practice Tuesday and it did not feel right. He took a second hack, then another, and one more. That is when he went to Charlie Manuel and told the manager his right side hurt.
"It definitely scared me a little bit," Utley said Wednesday.
