MILWAUKEE -- The Milwaukee Brewers have placed right-hander Marco Estrada on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring. Despite his struggles in Triple-A this season, Tyler Thornburg has been recalled and will start Saturday in place of Estrada. Estrada strained his left hamstring in the fifth inning of Monday's 10-2 loss to Oakland and had to leave the game after giving up a double to Athletics shortstop Jed Lowrie.

The decision to promote Thornburg is a telling sign as to where Milwaukee's starting pitching situation is sitting, as Brewers starting pitchers have the worst ERA in the big leagues at 5.58. Pitching the b...

Be careful what you wish for, MLB

As much fun as Major League Baseball was last night, the games, the action and the excitement were overshadowed by ESPN's Outside the Lines scoop on the deal Major League Baseball has reached with the former owner of Biogenesis of America, Tony Bosch, to rat on his former customers.
