MLB Injury News:
The Texas Rangers are scouting New York Yankees right-handed
reliever Joba Chamberlain, according to George A. King III of The New York
The Rangers sent Don Welke, a special assistant to general manager
Jon Daniels, to a Yankees’ spring training contest Monday specifically to watch
Chamberlain throw. King notes that the Rangers get the sense that the Yankees
may have bullpen depth to spare, which could make Chamberlain available.
Chamberlain has had one rough outing this spring, but he’s
been otherwise solid over his five appearances. He was limited to 20 2/3
innings last season due to injury, but he’s shown the ability in the past to be
a solid reliever. Over six seasons in the majors, the right-hander owns a
career ERA of 3.73 with a strikeout-to-walk ratio of 2.62.
Chamberlain recently ruffled the feathers of Yankee
leadership when he said he can be a starter or closer in the majors. The
27-year-old is set to hit the free agent market following the season, and King
believes New York could be willing to trade him considering they have David
Aardsma and Shawn Kelley in camp as potential middle relievers.

Yesterday, crowds cheered when smoke appeared over the Seattle Space Needle - (it's legal there) - signaling that free-swinging Tigers outfielder Brennan Boesch had entered the MLB free agent market.

Jeter broke his...
We learned yesterday that the Miami New Times will not be handing its Biogenesis files over to Major League Baseball after all. I am guessing this means that MLB won't have enough evidence to prove that Alex Rodriguez and others purchased PEDs. If that is the case, look for A-Rod to finally break the silence he has imposed on us all since this story broke.So what will he say...
Since the announcement that New York Yankees closer Mariano Rivera will be walking away from baseball at the end of the 2013 season many (analyst, writers, etc) have been speculating where the long-time closer fits within the greatest players of all-time list. I could debate you all day regarding my opinion on where Rivera fits on that list, but it's evident that some Red Sox...
