MLB trade rumors: Rival evaluators think Braves will pursue Mike Moustakas, per report

MLB trade rumors: Rival evaluators think Braves will pursue Mike Moustakas, per report

Moustakas is off to a strong start and the Royals seem likely to sell this summer. As we near the trade deadline it seems likely the Braves will look at all options to improve third base. In his weekly column, Nick Cafardo wrote that rival evaluators believe the Braves will pursue Mike Moustakas of the Royals. 3. Mike Moustakas, 3B, Royals — There’s a growing feeling among talent evaluators that Moustakas could become a Braves target. The Braves are currently using Jose Bautista at third. His defense has been fine, but he’s still not hitting like the Bautista of old. GM Alex...

Twins 3, Brewers 1: Odorizzi fans 10, Morrison delivers

Twins 3, Brewers 1: Odorizzi fans 10, Morrison delivers

Jake Odorizzi gave the Twins a good chance to win, and Logan Morrison came through in the clutch. Today the Twins, looking to avoid a sweep, turned to Jake Odorizzi to give them a chance to win, and that’s exactly what he did. The Twins had a tough time scoring against Junior Guerra, but finally broke through in the 5th inning. Byron Buxton singled, then advanced to 3rd on a stolen base and throwing error while Brian Dozier struck out. LHP Dan Jennings was brought in to face Max Kepler, who singled up the middle to score the first run of the game. Kepler entering this game was hitting...

Cubs 10, Reds 0: That’s the Jose Quintana we’ve been looking for

Cubs 10, Reds 0: That’s the Jose Quintana we’ve been looking for

The lefthander was dominant, and so was the offense. When the Cubs traded for Jose Quintana last summer, at the cost of (among others) top prospect Eloy Jimenez, it was said to be a good deal for the Cubs because they were getting a very good pitcher under team control for more than three years at a reasonable cost. What Q was known for as a member of the White Sox was quiet consistency. Yet he showed that only in flashes as a member of the Cubs, mostly in games against the Brewers, oddly. Saturday night, we saw what the Cubs saw in him when they dealt for him, as Q threw seven innings,...

Cleveland Indians: When will we see Melky Cabrera?

The Cleveland Indians signed free agent outfielder Melky Cabrera to a minor league contract on April 24. It’s been almost a month since the Cleveland Indians brought Cabrera into the organization.

Late walks bite Brewers in 3-1 loss to Twins

Milwaukee fails to complete the sweep. Box Score It was #JuniorGuerraDay today as the Brewers attempted to complete a sweep of the Minnesota leg of this year’s Border Battle, but our hero battled his command a bit for the second straight start. He was able to limit the damage for the most part, but a high pitch count didn’t allow him to work very deeply into the game. Both teams were held scoreless through the first four innings, and the Twins got on the board first in the fifth. Guerra started the frame and Byron Buxton led off with a single. Brian Dozier struck out to follow, but...

Thoughts on a 3-0 Rangers loss

ChiSox 3, Rangers 0 Chicago White Sox 3, Rangers 0 I’m not sure there’s much to say after a game like this. Mike Minor was fine -- better than the line indicated, really. He went 5 innings, gave up 6 hits, struck out 9 batters, didn’t walk anyone. All three runs came against him, one of them on a Wellington Castillo home run, the other two runs coming when Leury Garcia dunked a bloop in front of Shin-Soo Choo in right field after he had allowed a pair of singles. The first single, which led off the inning, was a ball that Rougned Odor couldn’t quite reach, but that some second...
