JOAQUIN BENOIT RUMORS

Benoit out to show he has plenty left at 36

Padres manager Bud Black was quick to point out reliever Joaquin Benoit has the most service time of anyone on the San Diego roster. While it was meant as a compliment, Benoit is out to prove he is nowhere near the end of his career. Carrying some bitterness from an offseason where his options were limited as a free agent, the 36-year-old Benoit is settling in to his new role as...

Who is the Next Joaquin Benoit?

Joaquin Benoit got a two-year, $15.5 mmillion deal to pitch for the Padres this week. The signing didn’t make many waves — after all, Benoit has been a very good reliever the last three years. But three years ago, Benoit’s three-year deal seemed like a head-scratcher. Are there any multi-year reliever signings going on right now that we might look back on as favorably as Benoit’s...

Yankees interested in Joaquin Benoit

getty images The New York Yankees reportedly have been considering Joaquin Benoit. Benoit, 36, could be used as either competition for David Robertson in the closers role or simply as a setup man.

Benoit quietly saves the day

Chicago -- Joaquin Benoit is a pro's pro and the Tigers would not be 21 games over .500 without him. Benoit very quietly goes about his business, does whatever the team asks him to do and doesn't seem to falter. On Wednesday, with the Tigers nursing a 6-4 lead over the Chicago White Sox at U.S. Cellular Field, manager Jim Leyland turned once again to Benoit. The difference...

SHAKE YOUR GROOVE THING

Joaquin Benoit boogies down in the bullpen

via MLB.com With a 6-0 Tigers lead in the bottom of the eighth Wednesday, Tigers closer Joaquin Benoit figured he wouldn’t be needed.  So he did what any normal white guy would do when Young MC’s “Bust a Move” comes on the radio. The only problem – you aren’t white, Joaquin.  We’re going to need more. Benoit was actually called upon to finish the game in a non-save...

Detroit Tigers trade rumors: all about relief

As July 1 approaches, the MLB trade rumor mill will begin churning out nuggets of speculation on a daily basis, and the Detroit Tigers won’t be immune to the chatter. This year, unlike a season ago, the Tigers’ offense appears to be set in stone. I don’t expect any Jeff Baker type of disasters this time around. Likewise, the starting pitching needs the help of no one. It will...
