When OF Wil Myers was voted the 2013 American League Rookie of the Year following a strong second half of the season — helping send the Rays into the playoffs and the Royals home early for the 28th straight year— it looked then like the Rays had "won" the blockbuster December 2012 trade. But it looks different now.

DETROIT — The Rajai Davis saga will extend into Sunday’s Game 3 of the American League Division Series, with the center fielder, whose speed has been greatly hampered by a week-old pelvic injury, believing he’ll play. “I am going to play,” he said emphatically at Saturday’s workout at Comerica Park. “I hope.” If there was a game on Saturday, he’s not so sure, though. “I’m glad there’s not, so I don’t even have to make that decision,” he admitted. The injury has clearly robbed Davis of his one defining tool, his speed. He wouldn’t hazard a guess at the percentage....

The just-announced Division Series roster is not much different from the wild-card roster. Starters Ryan Vogelsong and Tim Hudson were added, while first baseman Adam Duvall and catcher Guillermo Guiroz were subtracted. Relievers George Kontos and Juan Gutierrez have to watch as cheerleaders once again, as does Michael Morse, who seemed upbeat about his chances of making the roster, but must not have convinced the staff during batting practice Thursday that he was ready. He has been hampered since Aug. 31 with an oblique injury. Thus, the Giants will have an all-right-handed bench, at least...

In the 2012 playoffs, the Washington Nationals cast Stephen Strasburg as an observer. In an effort to protect his arm in the final stages of recovery from September 2010 Tommy John surgery, the Nationals limited him to 1591 / 3 innings that season and sidelined him in September as the command and life of his pitches waned. They ignored his pleas to pitch in the postseason. During workouts, Strasburg stood in left field and played light toss. Read full article >>
The Texas Rangers received right-handed reliever Alfredo Figaro on a waiver claim from the Milwaukee Brewers on Thursday. Right-handed pitcher Wilmer Font was designated for assignment to make room for Figaro. The Rangers have 10 days to trade, release or outright Font to the minor leagues.
