Astros relief pitcher Peter Moylan has UCL tear in right elbow

The Houston Astros looked to improve in nearly every area this spring following a dismal 51-11 record last season.  The competition is particularly fierce in the pitching staff, where the Astros have 25 pitchers on the 40-man roster, along with 9 non-roster invitees. Among the non-roster invitees is Peter Moylan, who has had some Major League success from 2006 through 2010.  But...

U.S. Olympic Twitter Account Appears to Get Hacked, Tweets Love for Nickelback (Photo)

Let’s be honest, there’s just a large cross section of the human population (read: people with taste) who do not like Nickelback. During the NHL lockout, then-Kings forward Dustin Penner tweeted in the wake of Jason Collins‘ announcement that he was gay. Penner joked that he was fine with having a gay teammate, but he’d prefer not to play with a Nickelback fan. Back in 2011...

The Braves have been quick to let us know which current Braves are playing for Team USA (Go Kimmie and Meds!) and about how Andrelton is playing on Team Great Smiles (...I mean, Netherlands). But what about everyone else (Marteen)? And what about former Braves or minor-league Braves? We care about those guys too! Here's a breakdown. One asterisk indicates a minor-leaguer, two...

Braves pitcher Peter Moylan delivers jab at Marlins over Health Bell trade
