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.

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?

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.

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.

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.

(Reuters) - Nelson Cruz smashed a three-run home run in the bottom of the eighth inning to lift Dominican Republic to a 7-5 victory over the United States in the World Baseball Classic (WBC) in Miami on Saturday. Cruz sent the pro-Dominican crowd of more than 37,000 at Marlins Park into a frenzy when he sent a line drive off left-hander Andrew Miller rocketing into the bleachers to give the Dominicans their first lead of the game. Center fielder Starling Marte added a solo homer later in the inning to pad the margin as the reigning champions fought back from a 5-0 deficit in the sixth inning.
