Rumor: The Rays are interested in Joe Jimenez

It would be very hard for the Tigers to get proper value in a Jimenez trade. With the Detroit Tigers surely selling at this year’s trade deadline, opposing teams have started to show strong interest in the Tigers’ three biggest trade chips. Matthew Boyd and Shane Greene have drawn looks from multiple clubs so far, but Nicholas Castellanos’ market has been all but silent. No, the Tigers’ third trade chip is Joe Jimenez, it seems. Jimenez has already drawn interest from the New York Mets, and is also an attractive trade target for the Tampa Bay Rays, according to Mark Topkin of the...

NYY vs. TB: James Paxton vs. Charlie Morton

The Yankees wrap up the first half of the season with an afternoon game in Tampa. Take it in, folks. It’s officially the last game before the slowest week in sports.

Brandon Nimmo shut down for 30 days

The news casts doubt on Nimmo’s timeline to return According to multiple reports, Brandon Nimmo, in California to obtain a second opinion on his ailing neck from renowned spinal surgeon Dr. David Watkins, has been advised to avoid all baseball activities for at least the next 30 days. This news surely comes as a huge disappointment to Nimmo, first and foremost, and to anyone interested in the Mets’ fortunes. This setback puts a punctuation mark on what’s been an injury-plagued season for Nimmo. His neck issues trace back to at least April 16th, when he was removed from a game against...

The Cubs rotation will be getting a refresh, and we might see Adbert Alzolay in it

Kyle Hendricks’ injury is forcing the Cubs to make changes. Kyle Hendricks went on the 10-day injured list after Friday’s game with shoulder issues. Word is that no one thinks this is too serious, and Kyle should be back not long after the 10-day period expires. (Sure, I know we’ve heard this before. In this case it seems like it’s probably the truth.) According to this Tribune article, top pitching prospect Adbert Alzolay will be the likely replacement for Hendricks: The Cubs haven’t finalized their rotation for the Mets series, but all signs indicate Kyle Hendricks’...

Mets place Noah Syndergaard on injured list with hamstring injury

The 26-year-old left Saturday night’s game because of the hamstring issue. In what should be considered record-setting speed by the Mets’ standards, the team has placed right-handed pitcher Noah Syndergaard on the injured list this morning after he left last night’s game with a hamstring injury. He’s getting an MRI this morning. The move also makes room for Robinson Canó, who is coming off the injured list himself today, on the Mets’ active roster. Syndergaard hasn’t been his most dominant self so far this season, but the injury opens a major hole in the Mets’ rotation,...

Jason Vargas leaves Mets’ Sunday afternoon game early

Vargas fouled a ball off his foot and left the game. On the same day that they placed Noah Syndergaard on the injured list with a hamstring injury, the Mets lost Jason Vargas early in their series finale today when he fouled a ball off his foot. Whether or not he suffered a significant injury is unknown at this time. Vargas threw four innings and gave up three runs, two of which were earned, before he left the game in the bottom of the fourth.
