Toronto Blue Jays Recall Anthony Gose, Option Mickey Storey

Outfielder Anthony Gose has been recalled from Triple-A Buffalo by the Toronto Blue Jays. Armed with a mix of solid speed and power, he is still pretty wet behind the ear and still will need some seasoning to become the type of major league hitter that is expected of him. To make room for the young hitter, Toronto has decided to option right-handed reliever Mickey Storey to the same...

Head injuries in football are well documented, but what about baseball?

His blurred vision would eventually improve, but Score’s budding career was effectively derailed. Catchers have masks. Batters are helmets. What about pitchers...

The Reliever Without a Fastball

A couple of minor transactions have floated by mostly un-noticed on the wires recently, and probably for good reason. Mickey Storey was claimed by the Yankees from the Astros, and Cory Burns was traded to the Rangers from the Padres for a player to be named someday.
