The City of Montreal honoured former Expos catcher Gary Carter on May 21, renaming a street in honour of the Hall of Famer who died of brain cancer in February 2012 at age 57.
Faillon St. W., located near Uniprix stadium, which used to be known as Jarry Park when the Expos played there, will now
The Giants made a pair of roster moves to address two ailing members of their pitching staff.
As expected, they placed Ryan Vogelsong on the disabled list as the right-hander prepared for surgery to repair a fractured pinky finger on his pitching hand. The club also placed right-hander Santiago C
White Sox lefthander John Danks is scheduled to make his comeback Friday with a start in Chicago against the Marlins, sources say.
Danks' season debut comes 10 months after shoulder surgery. He's made four starts while rehabbing in the minors, one at Double-A Birmingham and three at Triple-A Char
The disarray in the Nationals’ bullpen reached a bizarre and self-inflicted new height Monday night. After the Nationals’ 8-0 loss to the Giants, Manager Davey Johnson revealed that set-up man Ryan Mattheus had broken his right hand Sunday when he punched his locker after a dreadful performance,
Clayton Kershaw completely shut down the Milwaukee Brewers for the second time this season Monday night.
That was predictable.
Yovani Gallardo threw a whole lot of pitches for six innings.
Again, totally expected.
Essentially, so was the 3-1 victory by the Los Angeles Dodgers to begin a
All along, the assumption was that the anticipation of free agency after this season would inspire Jacoby Ellsbury to once again reach MVP-caliber heights for the Red Sox.
But take it from two of Ellsbury’s teammates: It isn’t so simple.
A year ago, Shane Victorino and Mike Napoli were in
It’s probably foolish, if not absurd, to draw comparisons to Detroit Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera.
Cabrera, after all, is the greatest player in the game of baseball.
The last time we’ve seen greatness like this is from one of the greatest three players to ever step on a baseball fi
Carlos Ruiz suffered a Grade 2 hamstring strain on Sunday. He will be placed on the DL on Tuesday, to make room on the roster for Tyler Cloyd. Cloyd has to be activated to make his second start of the season.
Ruiz is expected to be out for 3-4 weeks, a big blow to an offense that relied heavily o
The Texas Rangers activated catcher A.J. Pierzynski from the 15-day disabled list following Monday's loss to the Oakland Athletics.
Pierzynski declared himself ready to go for Tuesday's game against Oakland after the second contest of his rehab stint with Double-A Frisco.
Playing last night in Bill Murray’s hometown, Shane Victorino starred in his own version of “Groundhog Day.”
Victorino left the Red Sox’ 6-4 loss to the White Sox in the sixth inning after experiencing tightness in his left hamstring. It marked the fifth time this season that Victorino ex
It was intended as a joke.
“Outfield? What outfield?” Mets general manager Sandy Alderson quipped at the GM meetings in November, referring to the unproven outfielders on the team’s roster.
However, Alderson’s joke morphed into reality — the Mets’ outfield has been a revolving door
The more desperate the Mets get for Ike Davis to break out of his funk, the deeper he sinks. And last night — after grounding out to leave the bases loaded in the first, striking out twice after that, and costing the Mets a run with an obstruction call — the question isn’t how much lower he ca
Is Steve Cishek out of the closer’s job?
With Miami leading 2-1 in the eighth inning tonight, manager Mike Redmond had Chad Qualls warming up to pitch the ninth inning.
After the game, Redmond was asked: Who’s your closer?
“We’re going to use everybody,” he replied.
What started as Ryan Vogelsong's best night of the year turned into his worst.
The Giants' right-hander was in the midst of his best start of 2013 when he was struck in the right hand by a pitch while swinging the bat, and he came off the field grimacing. Vogelsong knew right away his hand was frac
R.A. Dickey has said the stat he cares most about is quality starts — the recognition given to a starter who pitches at least six innings while allowing no more than three runs.
He says he’s not aiming for another sparkling Cy Young season — he just wants to give the Blue Jays a chance to win
For a moment, let’s forget about how Don Mattingly’s players feel about him and ponder how he feels about them.
When the Dodgers left San Francisco early this month, having been swept in a bitter, hard fought series, Mattingly told reporters he felt better about his team walking out than he
After a day to let it sink in, Braves reliever Eric O’Flaherty seemed a little more resigned to the fact that he’s likely headed for season-ending surgery on his pitching elbow.
An MRI revealed a tear in his ulnar collateral ligament and he has an appointment to see noted orthopedic surgeon D
John Danks made his fourth minor-league rehab start over the weekend and Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports that the White Sox left-hander could come off the disabled list to make his season debut Friday.
It’s worth noting, however, that Danks hasn’t actually pitched all that well in the minors.
As his teammates packed up their gear and got ready to head to the airport for the eight-game trip that begins in Miami on Monday night, Carlos Ruiz limped across the clubhouse in his workout gear.
Instead of heading to Miami on Monday, Ruiz will stay in Philadelphia to have an MRI on his hamstri
You can be sure that a pair of hanging off-speed pitches from Brandon Morrow had more to do with Robinson Cano’s power show on Saturday than Hal Steinbrenner’s rare presence at the Stadium.
And, for that matter, you can be fairly sure as well, based on the way the Yankee owner speaks of his s
Jurickson Profar wasn’t recalled from Triple A Round Rock on Sunday to rescue the Texas Rangers, and the early indications are that he will be in the big leagues only until June 1.
But he will be in the starting lineup Monday night against Oakland in place of second baseman Ian Kinsler, who was
Second on the list of Best Things to Happen to the Texas Rangers on Sunday Night was word from the visiting clubhouse that Miguel Cabrera’s bags were packed for a charter flight to Cleveland.
The reigning American League MVP tormented Rangers pitching, hitting three home runs, and dugout decisi
The Indians' mastery of modern-day Cy Youngs continued Sunday afternoon, Seattle Mariners right-hander Felix Hernandez becoming the latest victim.
The Cleveland Lumber Company roughed up Hernandez for six runs (five earned) on eight hits in five innings of a 6-0 victory at sun-soaked Pro
For the 15th time this season, the Marlins were limited to five hits or fewer in Sunday’s series finale against the Diamondbacks. Unlike most of the previous 14 occasions, they made one of the hits count.
Marcell Ozuna’s one-out, two-run double off the left-field wall in the sixth brought hom
Troy Tulowitzki never envisioned this. He grew up playing baseball the hard way. He went from a grass-stained northern California Little League kid to a Long Beach State "dirtbag." The only time he remembers treating an injury was icing his arm after pitching.
For the boy who idolized Cal Ripken
