In midst of another near-perfect April, Justin Wilson trying to sustain hot start

In two Aprils with the Tigers since being acquired from the New York Yankees in a trade, Wilson has pitched 16 1/3 scoreless innings, allowing only seven hits and striking out 22. ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Twelve games into the season, Justin Wilson is pitching the reliever's equivalent of a no-hitter. In 6 1/3 innings over seven outings, he's yet to allow a run or a hit.  The ebbs and flows of a long season will eventually ensure that his 0.00 ERA has crooked numbers, but Wilson's hot start has come at an important time. Bruce Rondon, who ended 2016 and began...

No big deal, Clint Frazier just wanted Mickey Mantle's number

Frazier reportedly asked the Yankees if they ever un-retire numbers. Maybe Clint Frazier should have offered the New York Yankees a trade. In exchange for cutting his hair -- which clearly was a "distraction" in camp this spring (sarcasm intended) -- he'd get to pick whatever jersey number he wanted. It seems Frazier would have picked Mickey Mantle's No. 7, a request he reportedly put in, according to team broadcaster Suzyn Waldman. Waldman told WFAN that Frazier asked the Yankees "if they ever un-retire numbers." Bold move, young man. New York acquired...
