Tue, 28 Feb 2017 12:50:40 PST

The Cubs are expected to dominate the regular season once again. In what has become the least surprising development since the Washington Nationals signed another Scott Boras client, the Chicago Cubs are once again expected to dominate the regular season. The Cubs are projected to win a league-high 95 1/2 games in 2017, according to Bovada.

Sun, 26 Feb 2017 16:48:25 PST

Texas Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton is facing another trip under the knife on his left knee as he attempts a comeback from last season's reconstructive surgery. The former American League MVP is experiencing discomfort in the knee and may require arthroscopic surgery as soon as Monday, according to the Rangers.

Sun, 26 Feb 2017 16:26:42 PST

MESA, Ariz. (AP) -- Danny Salazar breezed through his first outing for the Cleveland Indians. No extra adrenaline from facing the Chicago Cubs. No interest in revisiting the World Series.



Ian Happ soaking in big league camp with Chicago Cubs (The Associated Press)

Sun, 26 Feb 2017 15:17:07 PST

Everyone is a potential teacher for Ian Happ, from Ben Zobrist to Javier Baez to manager Joe Maddon and the coaching staff. There is no room for Happ on the Chicago Cubs at the moment, not with All-Stars all over the infield and established major leaguers in the outfield. Happ and slugging outfielder Eloy Jimenez are considered the biggest jewels of Chicago's successful minor league system, which developed several key contributors for last year's title-winning team.



Indians 2B Kipnis sidelined by rotator cuff injury (The Associated Press)

Sun, 26 Feb 2017 12:52:38 PST

Cleveland Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis has a rotator cuff strain and will stop throwing for a couple days. Kipnis got a cortisone shot on Saturday, and manager Terry Francona didn't sound very worried about the situation. ''If it was during the season we wouldn't do anything,'' Francona said before Sunday's spring game against the Chicago Cubs in Mesa.

Sat, 25 Feb 2017 18:14:06 PST

Welcome to spring training, Bryce Harper. Harper hit a long solo homer and a single, helping the Washington Nationals to an 8-6 victory over the New York Mets on Saturday at Port St. Lucie, Fla. Andrew Stevenson and Matt Skole also connected for Washington, and Gio Gonzalez struck out one in a scoreless first inning.

Sat, 25 Feb 2017 16:59:39 PST

Mike Montgomery and Brett Anderson are competing for the fifth slot in the Chicago Cubs' rotation. Competition for the opening began in earnest Saturday when Montgomery worked a scoreless inning against Oakland in the home half of Chicago's split-squad games in its first spring training action.



Ryan Merritt starts Indians spring training opener (The Associated Press)

Sat, 25 Feb 2017 16:15:24 PST

Having made one major league start, Ryan Merritt was summoned from the instructional league in Arizona last October and pitched 4 1/3 scoreless innings against Toronto to help Cleveland close out the AL Championship Series. Four days after his 25th birthday, the left-hander was back on the mound and started the Indians' spring training opener, an 8-2 victory over the Cincinnati Reds. After retiring the side in order in the first, he allowed Eugenio Suarez's solo homer.



Indians Brantley takes full swings in latest comeback (The Associated Press)

Fri, 24 Feb 2017 10:30:57 PST

CleveIand Indians outfielder Michael Brantley participated regular batting practice for the first time in training camp this year, a significant step in his latest comeback from a shoulder injury. Brantley took 120 swings in an outdoor batting cage Friday as several Cleveland coaches and medical director Lonnie Soloff watched intently. Brantley had been limited to soft-toss workouts, but he was able to take full cuts against normal pitches.



'Let the games begin' at MLB's Spring Training (Reuters)

Fri, 24 Feb 2017 09:35:59 PST

Cries of "Play Ball" warmed the hearts of Major League Baseball fans on Friday as big league teams squared off for the first time in 2017 on Spring Training diamonds in Arizona and Florida. Game action is starting a week earlier than usual to make room for this year's edition of the 16-team World Baseball Classic, a welcomed early thaw for those eager to shake the winter doldrums with a return of the Summer Game. The Boston Red Sox, who added hard-throwing lefty Chris Sale this offseason to a sterling starting rotation, host the New York Mets in a meeting of championship contenders in one of Florida's four Grapefruit League contests.

FANTASY PLAYS: Sleeper picks for 2017 fantasy baseball (The Associated Press)

Fri, 24 Feb 2017 09:04:42 PST

Having a list of sleepers to queue up on draft day is not only an integral part of the draft prep process, it's a big part of what makes draft day fun. Davis' stock is down after losing 41 points in batting average and 103 points in slugging percentage in 2016. Soler has even bigger issues with making contact than Santana, but strikeouts were not a serious problem for him in his minor league career.



Two Indians players reflect on that fateful 10th inning from Game 7 (Big League Stew)

Fri, 24 Feb 2017 08:39:00 PST

For Cleveland Indians fans, losing Game 7 of the 2016 World Series in an extra-innings, rain delayed game against the Cubs was an example of ultimate baseball heartbreak. But two players on the Indians don’t look at it that way. Catcher Yan Gomes and 10th inning reliever Bryan Shaw spoke to Fox Sports’ Ken Rosenthal about that fateful 10th inning, where just inches could have changed the story significantly.



Cubs closer Wade Davis reunited with manager Joe Maddon (The Associated Press)

Fri, 24 Feb 2017 06:51:12 PST

Wade Davis was a promising starting pitcher when he made his major league debut for Joe Maddon and the Tampa Bay Rays almost eight years ago. Then he was a reliever, and then a starter again and then a reliever. Now he gets the ball from Maddon once again - only this time as the closer for the Chicago Cubs.



Feeling the (g)love: Indians shortstop Lindor in high demand (The Associated Press)

Thu, 23 Feb 2017 15:20:47 PST

Just this week, Francisco Lindor has given a hitting lesson on national television, modeled for commercial shoots and magazine cover, even worn a uniform outfitted with electrical sensors as the subject of a sports science experiment. No player has been more in demand at Cleveland's camp. Only 23, Lindor has become a star among stars, the smiling face and young soul of the AL champion Indians.



World Baseball Classic 2017: Boycott hurts Chinese Taipei's chances (Big League Stew)

Thu, 23 Feb 2017 09:39:48 PST

From now until the World Baseball Classic begins on March 6, we’ll be helping you get to know each team involved in baseball’s global tournament. Today’s team: Chinese Taipei. The team from Chinese Taipei had high expectations when it competed in 2013’s World Baseball Classic, and it even made a decent showing with an upset in the first round. The Chinese Taipei team is dealing with a fairly significant boycott, which essentially boils down to which governing body should be (or wants to be) making the decisions about the team the country is fielding for the WBC.



Column: Baseball should get serious about speeding up games (The Associated Press)

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 15:18:40 PST

There are all sorts of ways to give baseball a much-needed boost of speed. ''All of it is stupid,'' Atlanta Braves second baseman Brandon Phillips said Wednesday. Over the last 35 years, the length of a regular-season game has increased by nearly a half-hour - much of that extra time consumed by batters stepping out of the box between every pitch for the always-thrilling helmet tug, enough meetings on the mound to bring about world peace, and so many pitching changes one can only assume managers are investing in companies that make bullpen door hinges.



Cubs' Russell tears up thinking about 2016 accomplishments (The Associated Press)

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 14:54:28 PST

Addison Russell was laying on his mom's bed in the house he bought the family in Pensacola, Florida, with his signing bonus. ''That's when all the memories from this past year, from spring training to the middle of the season, then the World Series run,'' the Chicago Cubs shortstop recalled. The 23-year-old Russell, acquired in the July 2014 trade that sent Jeff Samardzija to Oakland, made his Cubs debut in April 2015.



MLB players' union agrees to pitchless intentional walks (The Associated Press)

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 12:31:17 PST

There won't be any wild pitches on intentional walks this season. The players' association has agreed to Major League Baseball's proposal to have intentional walks without pitches this year. While the union has resisted many of MLB's proposed innovations, such as raising the bottom of the strike zone, installing pitch clocks and limiting trips to the mound, players are willing to accept the intentional walk change.



Eyes on prize: Indians nervous about Miller pitching in WBC (The Associated Press)

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 11:13:24 PST

Here's a change or, ahem, a change-up: Andrew Miller has the Indians feeling nervous. The nastier-than-nasty left-hander, who makes his living fooling hitters and whose ability to pitch extended innings in October carried Cleveland to within one victory of a World Series title last season, will leave spring training next month to play for Team USA in the World Baseball Classic. ''We fully support him and we're proud of him,'' manager Terry Francona said.



Gutierrez back with Dodgers, his first major league team (The Associated Press)

Tue, 21 Feb 2017 17:09:17 PST

Franklin Gutierrez got another chance from the team that gave him his first one in professional baseball. Gutierrez turned 34 Tuesday, a day after finalizing a $2.6 million, one-year contract with the Los Angeles Dodgers. Los Angeles signed the Venezuelan outfielder as an amateur in 2000.



Indians' Brantley hopes 'bad days' behind him after injury (The Associated Press)

Tue, 21 Feb 2017 15:02:04 PST

Michael Brantley has clashed with self-doubt and depression while pushing his body. Brantley's comeback from right shoulder surgery has been grueling for the Indians' best all-around player, far tougher than he or the team imagined. ''He's had to fight that thought that this injury can win,'' said Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis, among Brantley's closest friends.



Super subs are now key players on pitching-dominated rosters (The Associated Press)

Tue, 21 Feb 2017 08:59:11 PST

The Atlanta Braves have two of them, in fact. Peterson can play second base, shortstop, third base and all three outfield positions. Chase d'Arnaud does him one better, having added first base to his repertoire this spring.



White Sox seek solutions for outfield vacancies (The Associated Press)

Mon, 20 Feb 2017 16:15:27 PST

With two spots in their outfield vacated, the Chicago White Sox are hoping a familiar face can fill one, and that someone emerges from a crowded Camelback Ranch camp to fill the other. Center field is up for grabs, while right field is Avisail Garcia's, if he can hold onto it. ''We still want to get Avi in right to get him comfortable again and we know Melky (Cabrera), how he plays left,'' manager Rick Renteria said Monday.



Powerful presence: Encarnacion gives Indians booming bat (The Associated Press)

Mon, 20 Feb 2017 15:03:56 PST

As fans lining the chain-linked fence next to Cleveland's main practice field jockeyed for better position to snatch an autograph or selfie with the team's newest star, Edwin Encarnacion showed no emotion. With his glove balanced on his head, Encarnacion signed baseballs, bats, cards and whatever else was thrust in front of him. ''Hey,'' he told Encarnacion.
