Mets designate former All-Star Matt Harvey for assignment

The New York Mets designated Matt Harvey for assignment Saturday, marking an abrupt and stunning end to the tenure of a pitcher who was considered one of baseball's budding stars and the future face of the organization upon his arrival in 2012.

Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said Friday the team made the decision after Harvey refused a demotion to the minor leagues to work out his problems. The Mets recently moved Harvey to the bullpen, but he struggled with the transition and allowed five runs in an 11-0 loss to the Atlanta Braves on Thursday at Citi Field.

Cardinals' Yadier Molina, injured on foul tip to groin, returns home after surgery

The St. Louis Cardinals say catcher Yadier Molina has undergone surgery and is expected to miss a month after being hit in the groin by a foul tip.

The Cardinals placed Molina on the 10-day disabled list Sunday. They said the eight-time All-Star is projected to miss at least four weeks with what the team called a "pelvic injury with traumatic hematoma."

Real or not? No-hitter the latest feat in James Paxton's rise

In his previous start, Seattle Mariners lefty James Paxton had a chance at history. He struck out 16 batters through seven innings, giving him a chance to tie or even break the single-game record of 20. Instead, with his pitch count at 105, he was finished for the night and then watched his bullpen blow a 2-0 lead.

On Tuesday in Toronto, he made history, with a little help from his friends behind him, especially third baseman Kyle Seager. Paxton tossed the sixth no-hitter in Mariners franchise history, blanking the Blue Jays on 99 pitches and striking out seven in a 5-0 victory.

Dodgers are going to have to start utilizing some of those talented young arms they never want to trade away.

21 year Caleb Ferguson who has been un-hittable in Oklahoma at least will start against the Pirates tonight. Walker Buehler, 23, already solidly in the rotation.

Agree!

Serious question.....do you think we've pretty much seen the last of Kershaw?

Kershaw is 30 and never had a major surgery. He's not done. He may be done as a Dodger though after this year.

Caleb had the yips tonight.

The Pittsburgh Pirates have squandered their hot start to the 2018 season and are sputtering. However, a few quick fixes could right the ship.

For the Pittsburgh Pirates to get back on track before the season slips away, the club might want to think outside the box a bit, adopting these quick fixes to regain their spark.

Tommy John surgery is becoming as common as the tonsillectomy.

I used to think this bit was just funny. Now..?

Cabrera suffers season-ending injury, Tigers lose to Twins

The Detroit Tigers lost much more than a game on Tuesday night.

Miguel Cabrera ruptured his left biceps tendon in the third inning of a 6-4 loss to the Minnesota Twins and will have season-ending surgery later this week.

"This is obviously a very sad day for Miggy and for the entire ballclub," manager Ron Gardenhire said. "It is obviously a huge blow to the team, both on and off the field, but we will have to find a way to overcome it."

I was at the game, and it was not pretty. Just about the last thing this team needed this season.

Giants closer Strickland mad at a bad performance and being pulled out of the game takes on a wall in the clubhouse, wall wins, broken hand, out 6-8 weeks.

https://www.sfgate.com/giants/article/G ... 008665.php

Just my opinion, but I don't think cases like this should be a full pay, preferably zero, but 50% would be reasonable.

Blue Jays closer Roberto Osuna suspended 75 games

Toronto Blue Jays closer Roberto Osuna was suspended without pay for 75 games on Friday for violating Major League Baseball's domestic violence policy, the league announced.

Osuna, 23, has agreed not to appeal the suspension, which is retroactive to May 8 and extends through Aug. 4. He will wind up missing 89 days, which would cost him about $2.54 million of his $5.3 million salary.

Osuna was arrested by Toronto police and charged with assaulting a woman on May 8 and then placed on administrative leave. The league has been investigating the charges since.

Party-crashing Phillies aren't going anywhere

There was a DJ in the Washington Nationals pregame clubhouse.

Not clubhouse DJ Gio Gonzalez, but like, a real DJ. With a turntable and speakers and lights and everything. Because that's how Davey Martinez rolls.

"I just wanted to bring one in," said Washington's manager before his team's series opener against the division rival Philadelphia Phillies. "It is Friday."

Tim Tebow improving, but call-up to majors would be a stretch

There has been some buzz around Tim Tebow of late. After a slow start, he went 2-for-4 on Thursday, raising his average for Double-A Binghamton to .318 in June and .261/.335/.398 with five home runs on the season.

Dodgers' Chase Utley, citing family, says he'll retire at end of 2018

Chase Utley will retire from baseball at the end of this season, capping a 16-year career that included a World Series championship with Philadelphia Phillies and an elder-statesman role with the Dodgers.

The six-time All-Star said he's leaving to spend more time with his wife and two young sons.
