Atlanta Braves news and links: Atlanta adds Adams

Matt Adams made his Braves debut on Sunday as he begins what could be a very important time in his career. BRAVES NEWS Atlanta rallies late but can’t sweep Washington Needless to say, the fact that the Braves were even in position to sweep the Nationals after losing Freddie Freeman is a testament to the fact that this team is not going to just roll over and die. That was especially true on Sunday when — despite being completely shut down by Stephen Strasburg — the Braves still managed to put together a late rally down 3-0. They cut the lead down to one run in the eighth inning, but...

K-Rod working way back into late-inning mix following another scoreless outing

Francisco Rodriguez hasnt allowed a hit or a run in four of his past five appearances. DETROIT - Detroit Tigers reliever Francisco Rodriguez is gaining back some of manager Brad Ausmus' trust. Rodriguez pitched a one-two-three eighth inning in a 5-2 loss to the Texas Rangers on Sunday.

Twins 8, Royals 4: Even more dingers

The Twins offense jumped on Ian Kennedy in the first, and never looked back The Royals started this game in almost the exact same way as the game earlier today: a Salvador Perez two run homer. This time, though, the Twins offense was up to the task. The Twins walked twice in the first inning. Those walks haunted as Robbie Grossman and Max Kepler followed each of them with a HR, giving the Twins a 4-2 lead. In the 2nd, a walk followed by a Brian Dozier double scored another run. 5-2, Twins. Adalberto Mejia did a nice job of limiting the damage after the first inning. The Royals got one...

Mets Player Performance Meter: Position players, May 15-21

As a whole, it hit just .202/.286/.389 with a 77 wRC+ that ranked 25th in the game over that span, but it still managed to score 4.33 runs per game, which isn’t too shabby. And let’s take a look—a new look that should make some of you very happy—at how these hitters did individually. Jay Bruce helped carry the Mets’ offense in April, and his overall numbers still look pretty good, but he’s...
