Yordano Ventura is back, but did he ever really go anywhere?

Saddled with the impossibly high expectations created by last fall’s postseason performance, Yordano Ventura was set up for failure in 2015. The Kansas City Royals let James Shields walk, christened the 24-year-old Ventura the ace of their staff, and handed him the ball on Opening Day. With the ink still drying on his five-year, $23 million extension, Ventura delivered six innings...

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The San Diego Padres had one of those nights where just about nothing went right -- except perhaps for Jedd Gyorko, who hit two home runs.

New York Yankees trade rumors: August waivers edition

The trade deadline has passed and despite the numerous moves that were made across the MLB, the New York Yankees made the calculated decision to stand pat (their only move being a trade to acquire 2B/OF Dustin Ackley, who is now on the DL with a back injury).

The Wind Up: Waivers Bonanza

Why should the non-waiver trade deadline have all the fun? Earlier this week, three fairly notable names had cleared waivers, all of whom are at different points in their careers: Jose Reyes, second baseman Chase Utley, and James Shields. Reyes, 32, was still fairly valuable last season—3.5 WAR according to Fangraphs—with 30 stolen bases and a .287/.328/.398 slash line, but...
