Buster Posey sits (elbow soreness), Chris Heston ready for Sunday A day after getting drilled just above his left elbow by pitcher Michael Wacha, Buster Posey is out of Saturday’s lineup. Posey expects to be in Sunday’s lineup, and Bochy said it should be a one-day absence. Rookie Chris Heston is feeling better after taking a break and figures to be re-energized for his start Sunday. Heston didn’t pitch for Triple-A Sacramento but joined the team during its stay in Omaha and Des Moines and spoke with River Cats pitching coach Dwight Bernard, player personnel chief Dick Tidrow and...

Miguel Cabrera now qualifies for AL batting race, is favorite to win fourth batting title

Miguel Cabrera now qualifies for AL batting race, is favorite to win fourth batting title

A player has to average 3.1 plate appearances per game played by his team to qualify for the batting title. Cabrera now has 400 plate appearances in 129 games played by his team for an average of 3.1008 plate appearances. Miguel Cabrera went 0 for 4 with two strikeouts Saturday. Still, that performance helped him take the American League batting lead. The four plate appearances Cabrera had Saturday gave him enough to qualify among the league leaders for the first time since he was on the disabled list with a Grade 3 calf strain. Cabrera is batting .361 (121...

Astros will not place Jason Castro on disabled list

MINNEAPOLIS – A month ago, Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow would probably not have hesitated to place catcher Jason Castro on the disabled list with the right quad strain he suffered Friday against the Twins. The calendar will help keep Castro off the DL as the team waits to add a catcher when rosters expand […]

Red Sox 3, Mets 1: Joe Kelly beats Jacob deGrom (actually)

What is going on with the Red Sox? Joe Kelly gets the win, Jacob deGrom gets the loss. Just another day in an increasingly confusing Red Sox season. For reference. Also the Owens vs. Harvey win, but Harvey actually won the pitching matchup, just not the game. But I digress! The Red Sox locked up a series win Saturday afternoon with a 3-1 victory over the Mets, and once again...it was thanks to Joe Kelly being surprisingly successful on the mound. It was not always the most convincing start from Kelly. The fifth pitch he threw was driven to right for a double, but two strikeouts in the...

Blue Jays 15, Tigers 1: :(

The Tigers played a sloppy, poorly pitched game and Edwin Encarnacion had himself a day. The world requires witnesses and today I was witness to Detroit's grim baseball affair. While many people travelled, spent time with loved ones, watched other sports, shopped, exercised, drank beer, went fishing, took a boat ride and took part in any of the endless activities we have created to erase boredom and fill our lives with meaning, I bore witness to the Tigers playing baseball. Though it was difficult, I did not avert my eyes; I fixed my gaze on the abyss. The following is what I saw: It was...
