I imagine that we will see...

Phillies' Hellickson frustrates the Marlins

MIAMI - If the Marlins were unconvinced of Jeremy Hellickson's capabilities, the veteran's last 14 innings against them should suffice. Every other team - and there are numerous - in search of an inexpensive, mid-rotation starter will note that Hellickson is pitching his best as the trade deadline nears.

Straily Dan reels in D'Backs, Reds win 6-2

The Reds' right-hander continues to impress as the Reds defeat the Diamondbacks on Friday night.

Michael Arace commentary | Win part of Homer Bailey's road back to Reds

We can argue whether Columbus’ baseball fans now tilt toward Cleveland to a greater degree than they do Cincinnati. In any case, they shared Huntington Park on Wednesday, a glorious day, sun-splashed and not too hot. A crowd of 10,822 was on hand as the Indians’ triple-A affiliate hosted its Reds counterpart in a businessman’s special.adcelannotate = {"mobilepaywallcategory" : "MOBILE_PREM-SPORTS","nativepaywallcategory" : "NATIVE_PREM-SPORTS"};
