Tigers' J.D. Martinez out 3-4 weeks with foot sprain, Brad Ausmus says

Lisfranc ligament sprain will have Martinez in a cast for 7-10 days, after which point the foot can be tested again to see how long hell be out.

Area Fan Ashamed of How Relieved She Is That Ryan Vogelsong Was Released

“I am grateful for the barest minimum of good decision-making, like a goddamn sucker,” she added. Angela Baer admitted that, when she heard the news, she was legitimately excited. And almost immediately, she felt shame. “They did what any self-respecting franchise would do. And I was elated! Then I was mad at myself for being elated. God, this team.” The news in question was the Twins granting Ryan Vogelsong his release. The veteran pitcher wanted to start. Minnesota’s front office wanted him in the bullpen. Unable to bridge this gap, they parted ways. “I know, I just know, in...

Thus, the Indians wanted to wait and see where he stood at the end of March before outright naming him the Opening Day starter.Following his last Cactus League start, the Indians and...
