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.

For any Clayton Kershaw fans......be sure and catch this weeks 6 page spread in Sports Illustrated.

Enjoy.
I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

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.
