Welcome to the Triple Play. In this week’s edition, we look at a new contender for NL Rookie of the Year, a leading contender for Stiff of the Year and more, including the latest bit of gritty idiocy from the Arizona Diamondbacks. Let’s dive in:
Jacob deGrom, New York Mets
In what may be the only time a Mets player makes an appearance on the Who’s Hot...
Former outfielder Jason Lane is back in Major League Baseball — but this time as a pitcher.
After making two relief appearances for the San Diego Padres in June, Lane got his first major-league start Monday afternoon against the Atlanta Braves. Lane, who was called up to fill-in for the injured Ian Kennedy earlier in the day, became the ninth oldest pitcher in MLB history to make...
If the name Jason Lane rings a bell, that’s because it probably should. The former Houston Astros outfielder will make his first MLB start as a pitcher for the San Diego Padres on Monday. Lane will take the bump against the Miami Marlins more than 10 years removed from hitting a solo home run against the Atlanta Braves in the 2004 NL Division Series.
After getting off to a...
Silver linings being increasingly difficult to come by amid shutouts, strikeouts and more shutouts in a Padres season getting away, we come today with one plaintive question.
Where have you gone, Jason Lane?
Oh, baby, do we ever turn our lonely eyes to you. Wooo-wooo-wooo.
"Wasn't that great?" Padres manager Bud Black said after Lane's debut on the mound last week...
Jason Lane wills stay in the San Diego Padres organization accepting an assignment to Triple-A El Paso.

In two appearances spanning 4 1/3 innings Lane struck out four batters while allowing just one hit. The former...
I was disappointed to see San Diego Padres LHP Jason Lane designated for assignment. The converted OF threw 4 1/3 scoreless innings over 2 outings, giving up just 1 hit in the process. The move was expected, as the Padres were just using Lane to help out with a depleted bullpen. Lane’s career has been […]
Three out of four Padres' affiliates lose as fielding woes continues to plague Fort Wayne. The good news is El Paso's Jason Lane, who at 37 is attempting to resurrect his career on the mound after being a major-league outfielder.
One significant year in Independent baseball and Jason Lane is back in the big leagues. During the Baseball Winter Meetings, the Minnesota Twins signed Jason Lane to a minor league deal.
I profiled Lane in August and at the time was named pitcher of the month for the Sugar Land Skeeters of the Atlantic League.
Lane’s signing was detailed on the Skeeters’ website and he...
Now to do some jumping around major league spring training camps with some of the diamonds in the rough. Names you don’t know now, but might soon will.
Jason Lane, Arizona—“My arm is somewhat fresh, and I’ve taken care of it,” said the first baseman-outfielder, trying to return to the majors as a pitcher with the Diamondbacks. “I don’t have the wear...
