First Wily Mo Pena.Now Vladimir Guerrero? Guerrero, a nine-time All-Star, might work out for the Diamondbacks at their complex in the Dominican Republic with 10 or 15 young Latin American prospects in the next few days, D-backs general manager Kevin Towers said during a television interview with FOX Sports Arizona on Sunday. I think we might even have Vlad Guerrero come out and work out for us. It will be interesting to see how they stack up against Vlad, Towers said. Guerrero, the 2004 AL MVP with the Los Angeles Angels, is a free agent after hitting 13 home runs with 63 RBIs in 145 games at Baltimore last year. Guerrero has been used almost exclusively as a DH the last three seasons after beginning his career as a right fielder. He did not play in the field with Baltimore last year. He has 449 homers in a 16-year major league career.

MLB Real Talk: Sport Some Hammel-Toe

Photo Credit: Keith Allison Jason Hammel will be facing the Yankees in the Bronx in about an hour. Whenever a pitcher goes against the Yankees (especially in their home park), fantasy owners tend to be shook. Me?

Series Spotlight: Orioles at Yankees (April 30-May 2)

But here we are on the final day of April, and the Orioles are in first place in the AL East with a 14-8 record.

Orioles lose up in the Bronx against the Yankees...

The Orioles have a tough road ahead in May as we all know. Their first stop was in the Bronx not too far away from the George Washington Bridge to face the New York Yankees.
