Twins pitcher Michael Pineda proceeds with caution but says he is 'ready to pitch'

Michael Pineda, who hasn't faced major league hitters since July 5, 2017, thanks to a ruptured elbow ligament that required Tommy John surgery, is on track to return this spring.

Troy Tulowitzki's veteran presence already being felt at Yankees Spring Training

Troy Tulowitzki's health this spring will always be a question. But, for now, it's as if the ghost of Derek Jeter is back at shortstop for the Yankees.

Meet the NRIs: Position Players

Prospects, old friends, a franchise icon, and more After a look through the dozen non-roster pitchers in Mariners camp, today we shift focus to the fifteen position players outside of the 40-man roster that received an invite. This group should be much more familiar, featuring several names that came over via trade this offseason, recent draftees, and of course Ichiro!. While it’s unlikely that any of these guys not named Ichiro will make the big club out of spring training, there’s plenty here to keep an eye on, and it should be a fun first look into the future. Catchers: Joe...

Twins-day links: Time to worry about pitching already?

Injuries, inexperience, and evolution leave the Twins with a boom-or-bust pitching staff Despite the fact we keep saying that Michael Pineda is far from a sure thing, the team apparently doesn’t believe that he is a “wild card.” It would be huge if he could find the form he had with the Yankees before his injury. That kind of pitcher could make a huge difference for the Twins season. Meanwhile, Tom Froemming is worried about another component of the pitching staff — the bullpen. He believes the Twins have to do something about the bullpen, mainly because the absolute lack of...

40 in 40: Félix Hernández

Sometimes you win in baseball, but sometimes it hurts instead. September 20th, 2017. The Mariners are 4 games out of the second wild card spot. The holder of that spot, the Minnesota Twins, have lost 5 of their last 6 games, practically begging another team to claim their postseason game. The Mariners have lost 5 in a row. Still, the tantalizing possibility of baseball in October darts through the September air. Felix Hernandez is making his second start since returning from his second stint on the disabled list for bursitis. The Mariners still have a tiny chance in hell of eking their way...

Mariners Moose Tracks, 2/20/19: Manny Machado, Manny Machado, and, oh yeah, Manny Machado

We’ve got just what you need to get your Wednesday started. Hello everybody! We’ve finally got a major signing on our hands, which hopefully means more will follow. Let’s get to it. In Mariners news... Ichiro means business this year. Why does it feel like Ichiro is about to take our lunch money? pic.twitter.com/BiYD2FpA7g— Cut4 (@Cut4) February 19, 2019 Another pitcher speaks out against the opener, but this one might be a problem.

HumpLinks: Mach-Ado About Cashing (In)

Manny makes the moola while Bryce & Boras still beg for bucks. Shoe #1 just dropped. The Internet went bonkers as Manny Machado was landed by the San Diego Padres. That ranks right up there with the Angels landing Shohei Ohtani, or the Angels landing Albert Pujols. Or the Angels landing Vlad Guerrero. I see it as a do-over for the Eric Hosmer swing and miss last winter. Machado has his faults, but failing to be a top-level MLB talent isn’t one of them. It’s still baseball. It’s still a game of fail. So there will still be moments where haters will throw some ignorant mockery. It’s...
