Scherzer says finger healed, should pitch in opening week (The Associated Press)

Wed, 22 Mar 2017 20:25:42 PDT

Saying his finger feels normal, Washington Nationals ace Max Scherzer proclaimed himself healed following his first exhibition start this year, a 6-1 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals on Wednesday. ''It's behind me now,'' Scherzer said. A stress fracture in the knuckle of the ring finger on his pitching hand slowed Scherzer and caused him to grip his fastball with the middle three fingers instead of the usual index and middle fingers.



Rays ensure relatively low salaries in free-agent years (The Associated Press)

Tampa Bay has a $13 million option for 2023 with a $2.5 million buyout.



MLB season preview: Mets pitchers are healthy and expectations are sky high (Big League Stew)

Wed, 22 Mar 2017 11:45:59 PDT

OK, maybe that’s not exactly it, but that sure is the gist of the season for the 2017 New York Mets, who lost in the wild-card game last season after their 2015 World Series run. The Mets went through so many pitching injuries last season that it’s a wonder they made the postseason. If they’d advanced any further, it would’ve been Noah Syndergaard and Bartolo Colon leading their rotation.

MLB season preview: The Rangers are within reach of that elusive World Series win (Big League Stew)

Tue, 21 Mar 2017 15:50:23 PDT

The Texas Rangers enter 2017 with one goal and it’s the same goal they’ve had for years, the same goal that’s been lingering since that disappointing 2010 World Series loss to the Giants. The Rangers want to win it all. There are all the makings of a World Series team here, but there’s also a big hump that they haven’t been able to get over.

MLB season preview: The Blue Jays have the talent needed to challenge for the throne (Big League Stew)

Mon, 20 Mar 2017 15:58:50 PDT

An offseason that looked like it might drain some of the power of the mighty Toronto Blue Jays lineup ended being … not as bad as it could have been. Will Jose Bautista, at 36, prove wrong all the teams that didn’t want to pry him away in free agency? Will Kendrys Morales do enough to replace Edwin Encarnacion, who went to the Cleveland Indians in free agency?

Mon, 20 Mar 2017 12:03:14 PDT

''I couldn't be more thankful and grateful,'' said Kiermaier, who turns 27 next month.

The Seattle Mariners undoubtedly had the busiest offseason in baseball. The Mariners haven’t made the playoffs since 2001 but recently they’ve been close.

MLB season preview: Potent lineup makes Rockies look like contenders (Big League Stew)

Thu, 16 Mar 2017 13:12:58 PDT

Stop us if you’ve heard this before: The Colorado Rockies are going to mash, but their success will come down to their pitching. The 2017 Rockies have built a lineup that’s sure to capitalize on that — from well-known stars such as Nolan Arenado and Carlos Gonzalez, breakout stars Charlie Blackmon and Trevor Story, youngster David Dahl and newcomer Ian Desmond. The latter two have been sidelined by spring injuries, which already has tempered the expectations about the exciting Rockies lineup to some degree.

Wed, 15 Mar 2017 13:44:36 PDT

Wed, 15 Mar 2017 11:35:15 PDT

Just 3+ months after trading for Derek Norris and penciling him in as their starting catcher, the Washington Nationals released him on Wednesday. Norris became expendable in February, when the Nationals signed four-time All-Star catcher Matt Wieters. By releasing Norris ahead of a deadline later this week, the Nationals owe him $688,525 in termination pay, instead of his full $4.2 million salary for 2017.

Mon, 13 Mar 2017 00:02:43 PDT
