Justin Wilson Throws Second No Hitter of the 2012 Season

For the second time this year, Justin Wilson has been part of a no-hitter for Indianapolis. Earlier this season, the left-hander was part of a three man no-hitter, joined by Jose Diaz and Doug Slaten. This time around he pitched eight no-hit innings. That was all he needed, as the game was called due to rain with Indianapolis leading 3-0 at the time. Wilson gave up just one walk...

Waiver Wire: Daniel Moskos claimed by White Sox; Doug Slaten and Chris Leroux pass through

#WhiteSox have claimed LHP Daniel Moskos off waivers from the Pittsburgh Pirates and optioned him to Class AAA Charlotte. — Chicago White Sox (@whitesox) July 6, 2012 Daniel Moskos almost made it all the way through waivers, after the club designated him for assignment last week when Eric Fryer was promoted, but got scooped up by the White Sox. By my calculations, it means all...

The #Pirates have claimed INF/OF Oscar Tejeda off waivers from Boston and have assigned him to Double-A Altoona; LHP Doug Slaten DFA. — Pittsburgh Pirates (@Pirates) June 27, 2012   It’s pretty amazing that the Pirates have cut ties with two left-handed reliever in two days, but I guess that just shows how much they thought of them.

More roster moves: Slaten, Moskos DFA, Oscar Tejada claimed

The Pirates' roster shuffling continues. Before last night's game, the club designated Danny Moskos for assignment to make room for Eric Fryer on the 40-man roster (remember that Chris Leroux is likely coming off of the 60-man DL in the near future; Moskos likely would've been the guy removed for Leroux, so the Pirates are just using this short window to get insurance...

Bucs sign Doug Slaten

Yippee! Doug Slaten! Slaten is a 31 year-old lefty reliever. He was decent in limited action with the Nats over the last two years, but missed some time with an elbow injury.  He should add a little bit of lefty depth in the bullpen – the Bucs don’t have much of it right now behind Tony Watson, Daniel Moskos, and possibly J0-Jo Reyes.  It’s a minor league deal with an invite...

Video of Nats minor leaguer dressed as Santa, proposing to his cheerleader girlfriend.

While the Washington Nationals Hot Stove continues to burn white-hot (when Doug Slaten news is big news, you know you're in trouble) we'd be remiss if we didn't say *something* about Nats minor leaguer Ben Graham dressing up as Santa and proposing to his girlfriend (a Tenessee Titans cheerleader) this past Sunday. Bryce Harper approves, so we do to: (via DC Sports...
