Pregame notes and lineups: Mariners at A's -- Seven players added to the roster, Jesus Montero placed on suspended list

Greetings from scenic and lovely  O.Co Coliseum. (Italics is thew new sarcasm font.) It's September 1 meaning rosters have expanded and anyone on the 40-man roster can be called up to participate in the last month. First bit of news .... Jesus Montero has been placed on the suspended list and won't play baseball the rest of the season. This isn't a big surprise since general manager Jack Zduriencik said as much the other day. But by being on the suspended list, Montero isn't getting paid for the last month. It also creates a spot on the 40-man roster for the Mariners, which is needed for...

Cleveland Indians recall Zach McAllister, place Josh Tomlin on paternity list

The Indians placed Tomlin on the paternity list on Sunday and recalled pitcher Zach McAllister, who will give the club an extra arm in its taxed bullpen. Additional reinforcements are coming on Monday, when teams can expand their active rosters to as many as 40 players.

With Hyun-Jin Ryu back, Dodgers look to Big Three for stretch run

SAN DIEGO -- The Los Angeles Dodgers have discovered a few things about Hyun-Jin Ryu over the past two seasons since they signed him to a record $36 million contract for a Korean player. The most important lesson has been that less is more. They fought him for a while on whether to throw bullpen sessions between starts but gave that one up early in 2013. The less they ask of him, the more Ryu seems to provide, with an almost effortless air. For the second time this season, Ryu came off the disabled list after skipping the usual minor league rehab assignment and pitched reliably, going seven...

Mariners Series Preview: Q&A with Patrick Dubuque of Lookout Landing

With the A's and Mariners squaring off for three games, I asked Patrick Dubuque of Lookout Landing a few questions about his favorite team. Here's what he had to say! It's a new month for the Oakland Athletics, and I don't want to talk about the one we just finished. All that matters is that it didn't go well and the team is now five games out of first place after spending most of the season as the best team in baseball. It's time for some comeback magic. These are the expected pitching matchups for the series: Mon: Jason Hammel vs. Chris YoungTue: Sonny Gray vs. James PaxtonWed: Jon...

Jeter's last swings vs. Red Sox in Bronx

The long goodbye is now in probably its final month. That means there are aspects of Derek Jeter's career that really are now final. It is one thing when Jeter plays his final games in Chicago or Los Angeles or even Toronto. It is another when it is against the Red Sox. So, this week, Jeter will play his final three games at home against the Red Sox. He will finish his regular season in Boston on Sept. 26-28. But, who knows, by that time the Yankees may be eliminated from the playoffs and Jeter may decide that his final game should be at Yankee Stadium on Sept.
