The United States routed Puerto Rico 8-0 to win its first World Baseball Classic in four tries on Wednesday night behind six hitless innings from Marcus Stroman.

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.

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.

Tue, 21 Mar 2017 08:51:55 PDT

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?

Fri, 17 Mar 2017 18:02:36 PDT

Despite being told yearly that spring training statistics are overrated, fantasy baseball owners still buy into them and will over or underrate players as a result. With the 2017 Fantasy Baseball season fast approaching, here are some player performances that actually mean something.

Josh Donaldson had good reason for not running out spring home run (Big League Stew)

Fri, 17 Mar 2017 17:04:09 PDT

Josh Donaldson’s decision to not run out a home run during a minor league spring training game was not actually his decision. Josh Donaldson wasn’t about to let anyone get the wrong idea about his confusing actions during a minor league spring training game on Friday. What looked to some like a disrespectful decision on Donaldson’s part, was actually the Toronto Blue Jays star following instructions in regards to protecting a calf injury.



Max Scherzer probably will miss Nationals' opener (The Associated Press)

Thu, 16 Mar 2017 19:13:21 PDT

NL Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer probably will miss the Washington Nationals' opener against Miami on April 3 because of a stress fracture in his right ring finger. The stress fracture had caused Scherzer to change the grip on his fastball, placing three fingers on top of the ball instead of two, but he went back to his old grip Thursday during his first game action this year, a three-inning stint in a minor league exhibition against New York Mets' Triple-A players. ''That's the really good news today,'' said Scherzer, who struck out five.
