Hawkins enters his 20th season in the majors where he once again is penciled in to play an important bullpen role. Signed by the Colorado Rockies over the winter to a one-year, $2.5 million contract, he has since been...

Rockies’ Rex Brothers Balks Twice During One At-Bat, Michael Young Sees Five Strikes (Video)

The balk rule is one of baseball’s laws that’s rarely enforced and often misunderstood. Even some major league umpires have admitted to not fully understanding its vague language about “deceiving” the runner.

Rex Brothers – Kantor’s Fantasy Corner

If you’ve been sleeping on the waiver wire, Colorado Rockies closer, Rafael Betancourt, left an extra innings game on Tuesday with an apparent groin issue. He will get an MRI with results that will determine if he can avoid a DL stint. Rex Brothers, although left handed, will get the saves in his absence.

Good Month For Rex Brothers (Singular)

June has been a good one for Rex Brothers.I was hoping for a very different Rex Brothers. Sadly, the Colorado reliever is just one player. When the 2009 MLB Rule 4 draft buzz about Rex Brothers was occurring, my first thought was there were Rex Brothers like the Upton brothers but twins.
