The Saturday Shuffle

*Ben Revere out, more pitching "prospects" in. I like Revere and wish him well in Toronto. Alberto Tirado and Jimmy Cordero are the two minor league pitchers that came to Philly in the trade, both of them relievers.  Tirado was a Top 100 prospect prior to 2014, but suffered through a poor season.  He's 20 years old and was in Single-A+. Over 4 seasons he has a 3.36 ERA/1.40 WHIP...

Twins' Hughes especially stingy during solid bounceback campaign

MINNEAPOLIS -- Phil Hughes was legitimately annoyed when he walked Chicago's Jordan Danks last Saturday. Few pitchers hate walking batters the way Hughes does, and he knew the walk had some implications on a little-known statistic -- one he could set a new single-season mark for by year's end. As Hughes prepares to start Friday's game against Cleveland, he does so with a strikeout...
