Robinson Cano of the Mariners is coming back from baseball limbo

Whatever feelings of shock, disappointment and even discontent that might have existed within the ballclub back when Cano tested positive for a diuretic commonly used as a masking agent for performance-enhancing drugs, they have been assuaged.

Blue Jays trade SS/3B Gio Urshela to New York Yankees

Urshela now moves to the Yankees organization in hopes of cracking a big league roster once again.

Thursday bantering

I’m fast approaching indifference Yesterday the Jays lost 8-3 to the A’s, and were swept by Oakland across an entire season series for the first time in franchise history. Toronto went 0-7 vs. the A’s this season and were outscored 51-18. And we now stand at 48-59. And even the Rays are above us. Oh and we don’t have a starter for today’s series opener vs Mariners... (anybody got Kraemer’s number??) Questions and problems I thought there would be a big clear out at the trade deadline, but it seemed only piecemeal. The Jays might prove active in the August trade market, and...

july (and the trade deadline) draws to a close Well, that was one of the more exciting trade deadlines in the last several years. The M’s were quite active the past few days, acquiring a trio of relievers in Sam Tuivailala, Zach Duke, and Adam Warren, and bolstered their outfield with one Cameron Maybin. Tuivailala and Duke are in uniform and available for tonight’s game, while Warren and Maybin will arrive tomorrow.

Bryson Brigman interview: Meet Marlins new infield prospect

Our sister site Lookout Landing recently spoke with Brigman about his breakout season. Already out of postseason contention, the Marlins flipped outfielder Cameron Maybin to the Mariners prior to Tuesday’s non-waiver trade deadline. The return package headed to Miami was light considering that Maybin is just a rental. Aside from $250,000 in international bonus pool money, the club acquired Bryson Brigman. His inclusion in a midseason trade is not all that surprising. In June, Bob Dutton wrote for Baseball America that the combination of his performance and lack of opportunity behind an...

The Mariners new look bullpen

The Mariners added three new relievers to their bullpen, giving them a ton of depth to work from down the stretch. We knew Jerry Dipoto wasn’t going to sit out this trade deadline. Not with the Astros looking weaker than they have in a couple of seasons and the Athletics suddenly a couple of games behind the Mariners. The only questions were which positions he was going address and how many moves he’d make to get there. His first move seemed fairly innocuous, adding RHP Sam Tuivailala from the Cardinals on Friday. But yesterday afternoon, Dipoto swung two trades in quick succession,...

We’re under 4 hours people With the non-waiver July 31 Trade Deadline approaching tomorrow at 1 PM PT, it had been suspiciously quiet on the trade front after GM Jerry Dipoto gave this quote a couple weeks back: “We’re certainly looking - we’ve made a lot of phone calls, we’re working them - we’re not closing the door on adding position players...we want to get better.” A minor acquisition in RHP Sam Tuivailala added a ROOGY to the bullpen, but things seemed to be moving slowly. Then, yesterday, Dipoto went into overdrive. Thus far, here’s where the “deadline” moves...

With 90 minutes remaining until the 2018 MLB Trade Deadline, Jerry Dipoto struck his fourth ~deadline deal, and his first to bring in a position player by acquiring OF Cameron Maybin from the Miami Marlins in exchange for a yet-to-be announced prospect and international bonus pool money.

The Yankees cleared out the bullpen this week. Let’s look back at some of Shreve and Warren’s best moments in pinstripes. This has been an interesting trade deadline for the Yankees. The team’s greatest weakness was starting pitching, and while Brian Cashman did add a few arms, he also somewhat dismantled the bullpen. On Saturday night, the Yankees shipped Chasen Shreve and Giovanny Gallegos to the Cardinals. He also flipped Adam Warren to the Mariners yesterday. Shreve seemed to be on the brink of being designated for assignment for most of this season, so it was nice to see him...

To make room on the 40-man roster, the team has transferred Yoenis Cespedes to the 60-Day disabled list.
