Farmers Only: Whole Lotta Losing Going On

The Reds minor leagures managed only 1 win in 6 games. They're just like the big league club! Louisville Bats 5, Toledo Mud Hens 7 Robert Stephenson got the start in this one and, well, it didn't go well. I searched up and down (I checked Twitter for like, 5 minutes) and found nothing concerning injury, but the Reds top pitching prospect lasted only 3 innings in this one, giving up 8 hits, 6 earned on 2 walks and 4 strike outs. Miguel "Stars" Celestino went 1.2 IP in relief with 2 hits, a walk and a strike out. Layne Somsen "In The Water" followed with 1.1 innings of 1 hit, 2 walks and 2...

Indians activate SP Gavin Floyd and IF Chris Johnson, call up RP Shawn Armstrong

As active rosters expanded from 25 players to 40 on Tuesday, the Indians activated starting pitcher Gavin Floyd and infielder Chris Johnson from the disabled list and promoted relief pitcher Shawn Armstrong from Triple-A Columbus.

Indians manager Terry Francona said Floyd will come out of the...

Nats Journal: Nationals-Cardinals discussion thread: Game 131

Joe Ross takes the mound in St. Louis, the first time he has faced the Cardinals. The right-hander is likely nearing the end of his season with an innings limit looming. But recently, Manager Matt Williams suggested that Ross could go deeper into the season, perhaps through the end because he isn’t coming off an injury. But, it appears Ross is closely monitored on a start by start basis. Ross (5-5, 3.24 ERA) has a 1.91 ERA at home but a 4.97 ERA on the road. He will be opposed by left-handed starter Marco Gonzales (4-2, 4.15 ERA). The lineups are here. As always, discuss the game...

Pregame notes: Teixeira put on crutches after most recent tests

Just like before, further tests on Mark Teixeira’s sore right shin revealed no fracture. Today’s tests did, however, show a more significant bone bruise that previously revealed.
