Dodgers 1, Indians 0: All alone in first place

Dan Haren outdueled Cleveland’s best starter in Corey Kluber in a 1-0 victory on Monday night. More importantly, the victory put the Dodgers in first place all by themselves for the first time since late April. Haren allowed just one hit — an infield single to Michael Bourn, a play that was originally ruled “out” by the first base umpire. After a manager’s review, the...

Dodgers @ Royals June 25, 2014: So Clint Robinson Is Here For Some Reason

Well, sure, okay. A few hours ago, I wondered who might get sent down when the Dodgers activated Juan Uribe tomorrow, and I figured that Carlos Triunfel or Jamie Romak were the two most likely options. I didn’t figure that a move to cut one of them would happen today, on the final day of the road trip… and I certainly didn’t expect that Clint Robinson, of all people, would...

Bucs make minor trade, DFA Garrett Jones

The Pirates made some moves on Monday – not big ones, but still somewhat notable. They acquired outfielder Jaff Decker and reliever Miles Mikolas from the Padres, sending them prospect Clint Robinson in exchange. Decker and Mikolas were both added to the 40-man roster, so to make room, the Bucs designated Kyle McPherson and Garrett Jones for assignment. The three guys in the trade...

First Pitch: The Ripple Effect of Small Major League Moves

A lot of the time when the Pirates make minor moves at the Major League level, they’re dismissed as not being a big deal. The club traded for John McDonald, rather than adding Jordy Mercer or Ivan De Jesus Jr. to the active roster. Looking at that move individually, it’s not a horrible thing. They added a strong defensive shortstop, and have more depth. But when you start to...

The Depth At Triple-A Forces Some Position Changes and Returns in Altoona

The cuts from major league camp left the Pittsburgh Pirates with a lot of options at the Triple-A level. Those options ended up holding a few players back in Altoona for the 2013 season. Early in minor league camp, the Pirates were playing Matt Curry, Adalberto Santos, and Andrew Lambo with the Triple-A squad. After the late cuts, all three were pushed back to Altoona. That created...

News and notes

Some quick Bucs notes from the past week: World Baseball Classic: Jason Grilli did not make an appearance in the second round, as Team Italy foolishly failed to use him while blowing two late leads to get knocked out of the tournament. The Italians tried waiting until the ninth to use their closer, but lost the lead before the ninth against both the Dominican Republic and Puerto...

I'm a little behind the eight-ball on this one, but the Pirates made a flurry of roster moves this afternoon that are worth at least talking a little bit about even if I end up being the last person on the internet to weigh in on them. First up, they traded Luis Rico and Luis Santos to the Royals for Vin Mazzaro and Clint Robinson, then designated Matt Hague and Yamaico Navarro...
