Cleveland Indians outfielder Marlon Byrd: From unable to walk to a 15-year MLB career, just as he always imagined

"[Amputation] was the thought," Byrd said. "It was a career-ending injury. They were doing the surgery for me to walk again and that was it. The surgery they did had gotten people back to walking, but not playing a sport again."

On the Mend - A Texas Rangers preview

A look ahead at our opponents for the weekend portion of our homestand. Once again, let's talk about what I wrote last year about the Texas Rangers. For those who aren't feeling click-happy today, the Rangers were 16-23 on May 19 last season, a solid nine-and-a-half games back of the Houston Astros in the AL West. As if that situation wasn't dire enough, the Rangers had a whole host of injury problems, including nearly a full rotation's worth of pitchers on the disabled list and top prospect Jurickson Profar out for the season. Of course, we all know at this point that the Rangers made an...

Surveying the early returns from the White Sox' offseason

All of the past winter's wheeling and dealing doesn't yet measure up to the impact of the Jeff Samardzija trade, which still hurts Despite some sputtering and buffering on the offensive side, the White Sox are still off to their best start in years. Despite a lot of wheeling and dealing from Rick Hahn, the individual contributions of the new guys aren't really playing much of a part.

Three weeks are but a drop in the...

Angels 3, White Sox 2: Comeback bid dies on warning track

Austin Jackson comes up a few feet short of a walk-off homer as Sox split series Jered Weaver's fastball spent most of the day in the low '80s, but it was still enough to continue flummoxing White Sox hitters. Diminished stuff and all, Weaver limited the Sox to a Melky Cabrera solo homer over seven innings. Only until the ninth did the Sox sustain a threat, which started with a Todd Frazier solo homer, but ended when Austin Jackson's bid for a game-winning homer fell into Craig Gentry's glove on the warning track. The Sox entered the inning trailing 3-1, and Street was one pitch away from...
