Tigers trade rumors: Detroit trying to shop Mike Pelfrey

The Tigers are willing to eat Pelfrey’s salary in order to move him in a trade.

Red Sox Sue App Maker For Non-Payment On Contract

Red Sox Sue App Maker For Non-Payment On Contract

According to the Boston Business Journal, the Red Sox have sued app-maker Giga for not paying agreed-upon amounts in an advertising contract with the team. The Sox are alleging that the app company has not paid required amounts in the early stages of a three-year deal (including placement of ads on The Green Monster). For the 2016 season, Giga was supposed to have paid the Red Sox $2.4 million—with the team claiming they only got $150,000. So, understandably, they are looking for the full amount of the terminated contract ($7.5 million)—plus a 1.5 percent per month late fee. Giga is the...

Oakland decided against using No. 5 starter Raul Alcantara on Tuesday against the Angels, a division rival, so instead, the A’s will get a look at their No. 2 draft pick from last June against a lineup made up of almost entirely big leaguers. Shore, 22, was the 2016 SEC Player of the Year while at Florida; he went 0-2 with a 2.57 ERA at short-season Class-A Vermont last summer, with 21 strikeouts in 21 innings. Holmes, who turned 21 last week, was a first-round pick in 2014 and some scouts said after the A’s made the trade that he might be the best piece in the deal - which is saying...
