It was a hard job the Mets asked of Zack Wheeler last season. At 23-years old, he was not expected to follow in the footsteps of Matt Harvey. They would never ask that of him. The Mets were asking Wheeler to be a good, young pitcher maturing under the gun in the major leagues.

"I said, 'Uh oh. Either I'm going to get beat, or I'm getting traded somewhere,'" Masterson said.
While numerous observers were dismissive about an ESPN Boston report about the Red Sox's interest in Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp and the possibility that he could be part of a Jon Lester deal, the Sox have been scouting Kemp for at least the past month, according to an industry source. The $107 million remaining on Kemp's contract would make a deal difficult to execute, and with the Dodgers playing well, GM Ned Colletti might have little interest in breaking up his outfield combination, although a healthy Kemp could well pop up on the Sox's radar again in the offseason.

It’s not Bartolo Colon, at least not in a deal for Kemp. I know the Dodgers like Jon Niese, but he has no playoff experience and this current shoulder situation is a bit of mystery. So, I don’t see a match. Noah Syndergaard, Rafeal Montero, Jacob deGrom, Travis d’Arnaud, they’ll all really nice players, they’re terrific […]
The Marlins’ quest to upgrade their starting rotation figures to lead all the way up until Thursday’s 4 p.m. trade deadline. But just because they want to be buyers, it doesn’t mean they plan to spend foolishly, president of Baseball Operations Mike Hill said Wednesday.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Boston's Andrew Miller and Philadelphia's Antonio Bastardo lead the list of left-handed relievers who could be on the move in advance of Thursday's 3 p.m. non-waiver trade deadline, but Brian Duensing figures to draw interest as well.
If there was anything encouraging about the Nationals’ offense in Tuesday’s scoreless loss, it was the continued improvement of Bryce Harper at the plate. For much of the past week, Harper has struggled to find himself in the batter’s box. When he returned from the all-star break, Harper featured a new stance — “stack and jack,” as it […]
HOUSTON – The closer the A’s have gotten to the trade deadline, the more their rotation depth has seemed to be in question. Their top three starters – Scott Kazmir, Sonny Gray and Jeff Samardzija — are as good as any threesome in the American League. No. 4 man Jesse Chavez, while consistent most of the first half in his first season as a starter, is coming off his worst outing. Then there’s Jason Hammel. The A’s lost to the Astros 8-1 on Wednesday, and Hammel’s fingerprints were all over it. While the A’s are a proven come-from-behind team, Hammel gave them virtually no chance...
Arizona Diamondbacks infielder Eric Chavez announced his retirement Wednesday, ending his 17-year major league career at the age of 36.
In a trade market without an abundance of teams in all-out sell mode, the Diamondbacks are somewhat unique. After their 3-0 loss to the Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday night, they fell to 15 games under .500 and remain sequestered from the playoff race.
Result: The Mets defeated the Philadelphia Phillies, 11-2, on Wednesday afternoon at Citi Field. Need to Know: Zack Wheeler worked deep into counts, throwing 112 pitches in 6 2/3 innings but only allowing two runs in his sixth win of the season. Wheeler got the run support he needed when Daniel Murphy hit a three-run home run in the fifth inning […]
Tanner Roark won his fourth consecutive start and the Washington Nationals averted a series sweep by snapping the Miami Marlins six-game winning streak with a 4-3 victory Wednesday.
ST. PETERSBURG — If Wednesday was indeed David Price's farewell performance with the Rays, it didn't go very well.
Well, THAT sucked. I watched most of the game and wish I hadn’t. It was unbearably long. The two teams threw 350 pitches between them, and the 9-inning game lasted three hours and 46 minutes without a rain delay. And with Big Handsome against the 34-year old version of Josh Beckett, nothing about this game […]
