Nats Journal: Henderson Alvarez replaces Jordan Zimmermann, leaves Nationals with no active all-stars

While we’re still awaiting word on the results from Jordan Zimmermann’s MRI exam, Major League Baseball announced news sure to bristle the Nationals and their fans. Cardinals Manager Mike Matheny named Marlins right-hander Henderson Alvarez as Zimmermann’s replacement for the All-Star Game. Alvarez, at 6-4 with a 2.63 ERA in 19 starts, is a worthy selection.

Nate Freiman called up, in A’s lineup; Reddick likely to DL

From Chronicle Staff Writer Susan Slusser at Marlins Park Nate Freiman is here and in today’s lineup, while outfielder Josh Reddick isn’t listed on the lineup card. Reddick came out of last night’s game after injuring his right knee again and he is having an MRI today, so it’s safe to assume he is going on the DL. He already missed three weeks on the DL with the same injury and it sounds as if it’s worse; should there be any structural damage, this might be a surgical issue. Freiman was scratched from last night’s River Cats game, so it was clear he’d been targeted, but I’m a...

Furcal, 36, was a risky signing considering he has not played a game since August of 2012. But when president of baseball ops Michael Hill and GM Dan Jennings went about retooling this team, everything included some degree of risk [More]
