Looking for healthy players, Angels sign Wade LeBlanc

The Los Angeles Angels were devastated by injuries in 2013.  That may or may not be the reason they failed, yet again, to compete in the division.  However, there’s no doubt the team wants to avoid similar pitfalls.  There will be injuries, but if they focus on players who are not injury-prone, Los Angeles may have better luck.  That seems to be what they were doing when they...

Marlins' LeBlanc takes on the Braves at home

By sweeping a series from the NL East leaders, the Atlanta Braves have managed to stay in the conversation for the division crown. A far more realistic way to make the playoffs is securing the NL's first wild card, and a series with the last-place Miami Marlins should help with that endeavor, especially with Tim Hudson set to pitch. Hudson looks to win his fifth straight start...
