Trade to Orioles completes Kelly Johnson's AL East tour

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- The trade that sent corner infielder Kelly Johnson from Boston to Baltimore on Saturday night, prompted by the Orioles' search for a third baseman to replace the injured Manny Machado, gave Johnson a rare distinction. By going to the Orioles, Johnson now has belonged to all five teams in the American League East: After stints with the Braves and Diamondbacks, he was traded to the Blue Jays in late August 2011, signed as a free agent with the Rays after the 2012 season, signed as a free agent with the Yankees last winter, was traded to the Red Sox at the July 31...

Daniel Murphy #28 2BNew York Mets 2014 STATS GM126 HR9 RBI53 R73 OBP.343 AVG.301 NEW YORK -- Daniel Murphy's right calf, which forced him to depart Sunday's game at Dodger Stadium in the ninth inning, remained "tighter than usual" on Tuesday. So Murphy joined David Wright (neck) on the bench for Tuesday's series opener against the Atlanta Braves. Murphy expected to be examined by a doctor pregame, and suggested he would have a better idea of the severity of the injury afterward.

Rapid Reaction: Braves 3, Dodgers 2

ATLANTA – The Dodgers lost a game, but they’re hoping they didn’t lose one of their best starting pitchers for an extended period. Hyun-Jin Ryu left Wednesday night’s 3-2 loss to the Atlanta Braves in the sixth inning with a strained right gluteus muscle. The extent of the injury was not immediately known, but the Dodgers have been heavily reliant on Ryu, Clayton Kershaw and Zack Greinke as they climbed to their perch in the NL West.

Monday (Watching the Twins) edition: Wha' Happened?

A lot of you know that we rooted hard-core for the Braves starting in the early-to-mid-1980s. Ted Turner and the “Superstation” grabbed us big-time up in North Dakota, seeing as it was about one of 12 channels we got on cable, and being a baseball fan the notion of 100-plus games being on TV every year was too good to be true. When we latched onto the Braves, they were decent — they won the division in 1982, probably would have again in 1983 if not for an injury to Bob Horner, and hovered around .500 in 1984. We didn’t really get into our major love, though, until 1985. We were 8...
