Brewers exercise 2016 option on Lind

The question of "Who's on first?" for the Milwaukee Brewers has been at least partially answered. On Tuesday, the Brewers picked up the $8 million option on first baseman Adam Lind's contract. Lind batted .277 with a .360 on-base percentage and .460 slugging percentage in his first season with Milwaukee. Lind, who was acquired from Toronto on Nov. 1, 2014 for pitcher Marco Estrada...

Milwaukee Brewers: Davies, Jimenez roughed up in loss to Pirates

Milwaukee Brewers starter Zach Davies lasted less than four innings and allowed six earned runs, and the Brewers fell 10-2 to the Pittsburgh Pirates on Saturday night. Davies struggled with his command throughout his outing on Saturday, giving up five walks. Things all fell apart for the young right-hander in the third inning, when the Pirates capitalized on his struggles by bringing...

Milwaukee Brewers and Houston Astros benefitting from big trade

It’s safe to say that between the Milwaukee Brewers and the Houston Astros, the latter had the better Friday night. Starting pitcher Mike Fiers, who was sent to Houston with centerfielder Carlos Gomez at the Trade Deadline, threw his first no-hitter and made his name much more popular in Texas and all of baseball. While that easily overshadows the 10-3 win that the Brewers picked...

Phillies lose Cesar Jimenez to the Milwaukee Brewers on waivers

View image | gettyimages.com Left-handed reliever Cesar Jimenez really helped the Phillies on Thursday night. After the latest clunker from starter Jerome Williams, the bullpen was once again responsible for picking up too many innings in a single ballgame once again. Jimenez gave the Phillies two and one-third innings of...

Friday Quickies

The rebuild and youth movement is almost in full effect.  Would like to see Jerome Williams released and give another minor leaguer a chance - Alec Asher, Jesse Biddle or Severino Gonzalez (again).  It's not that they're deserving of it due to minor league success, but we know Jerome ain't the answer. Jerad Eickhoff makes his MLB debut tonight.  He was part of the package deal...

While dealing with elbow issues over the past two seasons the former Dodgers start has made just two starts.

Some Phillies Business

Jordan Dank, the outfielder formerly of the White Sox and brother of lefty stater John Danks, has been claimed.  Not sure why, but then again, I'm not sure about most of Amaro's roster decisions. Danks is 28 years old and over parts of the last 3 seasons in Chicago he's hit .227.629 in 180 games.  His defense grades out subpar, and obviously his stick does too.  Seems like a wasted...

Phils Re-Sign Sizemore, Jimenez

The Phillies announced on Thursday that they have re-signed outfielder Grady Sizemore and relief pitcher Cesar Jimenez, both to one year contracts. The Sizemore experiment was fun, but he clearly doesn’t have much left in the tank, at least from what he showed us last season. Jimenez ended up having a pretty good 2014 season, with a 1.69 ERA in 16 appearances.
