Pablo Sandoval's nerve irritation could be the result of bone spurs in his elbow. He underwent an MRI that ruled out any major structural damage says Andrew Baggarly of CSN Bay Area, but the San Francisco Giants will be cautious with him. The team is still optimistic about Sandoval's chances at being ready for Opening Day.
Sandoval was recently diagnosed with ulnar...

During Tuesday's Angels-Brewers game, home plate umpire Seth Buckminster got hit in the hand with a pitch from Brewers pitcher Wily Peralta. The injury was apparently severe enough to force Buckminster to leave the game, and since there are typically only three umpires at Spring Training games, that turned into quite the issue. Third base umpire Tim McClelland then took up...
MILWAUKEE -- While the bone-chilling cold wind made it hard to believe Opening Day is less than two weeks away, the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday unveiled a few changes to Miller Park when fans come through the gates April 1.
On the club level, the SKYY Lounge formerly known as the Home Plate Lounge - has been upgraded. Located on the concourse of the club level behind home plate...
Buster Posey‘s second half last year was absolutely ridiculous: 71 G, .385 BA, 43 R, 14 HR, and 60 RBI. Putting up numbers like that in the second half will generate lot of hype going into the following year. When that same player has won Rookie of the Year, Comeback Player of the Year, an [...]

Brandon Crawford had three hits and an RBI, leading a San Francisco Giants split squad to a 6-4 victory over the San Diego Padres on Wednesday.
The Padres hoped starter Andrew Cashner would get into the fourth inning with less that 40 pitches, but he didn't make it through the third - he threw 31 pitches in the first. But Cashner only gave up one run on three hits. He struck...
The Milwaukee Brewers acquired third baseman Stephen Parker from the Oakland Athletics in exchange for right-handed pitcher Darren Byrd on Wednesday.
Over four seasons in the minors, the 25-year-old Parker has batted .277 with 43 home runs and 262 RBIs in 448 games. His best season was 2010, when he batted .296 with 21 homers and 98 RBIs in 139 games at Class-A Stockton.
Matt Cain wasn't so worried about the runs. It was a lack of command that bothered him.
The Giants' opening day starter gave up four runs and seven hits, one a two-run homer to Willin Rosario, and the Colorado Rockies went on to beat San Francisco 10-4 Thursday night.
''My stuff was fine, but I made some bad mistakes, location-wise,'' Cain said despite not...
We've posted some pretty interesting moments from 2013 MLB spring training so far but this moment from last Tuesday's Los Angeles Angels/Milwaukee Brewers game might take the cake.
In the first inning, home plate umpire Seth Buckminster was injured after a pitch thrown by Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Willie Peralta deflected off Angels slugger Albert Pujols and then hit...
In a game where balls and strikes were briefly called from behind the pitcher's mound after an umpire was injured, Albert Pujols made his spring debut at first base for the Los Angeles Angels in a 6-1 loss Tuesday to the Milwaukee Brewers.
Pujols played the field for the first time since offseason surgery on his right knee. The slugger went 0 for 2.

Spring training turned into Little League for half an inning on Tuesday.
After home plate umpire Seth Buckminster broke his hand on and errant pitch by Wily Peralta, the Angels-Brewers game was left without a home plate umpire. Anthony Johnson scurried to the back to change into home plate gear, and veteran umpires Tim McClelland and Jim Joyce decided to keep the game moving. That...
