Tigers winning in their throwbacks

In case you were wondering, this is not a Detroit uniform redesign. The Indians and Tigers are honoring the Negro Leagues by wearing throwbacks today, and Victor Martinez's 2-run single has Detroit up 2-0 in the 3rd. Follow live


Sport Science: Jose Iglesias' throw to 1B

Tigers teammate David Price wanted Sport Science to break down Iglesias' insane throw to first -- so we did. Turns out, Iglesias' margin for error was only 3 degrees, about the width of a quarter.

Royals, White Sox punished for fight

ESPN's Tim Kurkjian on the suspensions handed out today: "Major League Baseball has made it clear that if you're going to get involved in some sort of fight like this that, you are going to pay for it.


Kurkjian: Puig's hamstring a concern

"For him to come out of the game last night, that was not a good sign. Hamstring's are really tricky ... and with the way that Puig runs the bases and plays the outfield, he's using his legs as much as about any player in the Major Leagues."


Dodgers evaluating Puig's injury

Yasiel Puig aggravated his hamstring injury on Friday, and the team hopes he can avoid a DL stint. Said manager Don Mattingly: "I don't know a whole lot right now and I don't know that it's too serious. We'll find out tomorrow."


Trevor Bauer scratched from start

The Indians SP won't pitch today vs. the Tigers due to illness. T.J. House will start in place of Bauer, who was off to a nice start to the season (2-0, 0.95 ERA).

Chicago White Sox @whitesox

Unless appealed, all suspensions are scheduled to be effective on Sunday, when the Clubs are to continue their series in Chicago.

Does Josh Hamilton have anything left?

ESPN's Tim Kurkjian on the Rangers being close to acquiring Hamilton: "The question is: Is he anywhere close to the great player that he was in 2010, when he had an OPS over a thousand? ... There's a real question whether he's a good player anymore."

MLB's golden age of third basemen

There's a new trend in baseball and it involves a more versatile third baseman. Up-and-coming stars with a more varied skill set, like Chicago's Kris Bryant, have made the position deeper and more exciting. Breaking the mold (Insider)

No reschedule date for Saturday's ppd White Sox-Royals game. Royals return July 17-19 and Sept 29-Oct 1.

Trading Hamilton could be mistake

"If Hamilton actually rebounds and goes back to being an effective player for the Rangers ... then the Angels will have doubled-down on their mistake, in failing to find a way to live with him and help him become a good player again." Buster Olney's column (Insider)

Rizzo chasing HBP record

Anthony Rizzo has been hit by a pitch 6 times this season, putting him within one of Shin-Soo Choo's April MLB record. “I don’t like getting hit,” Rizzo said recently. “But you get on base. If I get hit again, I get hit.”
