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...

Astros invitee Peter Moylan says ‘I’m not done yet’

Peter Moylan is 35 years old. Before this year, the Astros righthander and Australia native had never fully experienced winter. He didn’t cherish it. A one-time pharmaceutical sales rep, Moylan spent 2006-12 with the Braves, and he still has a home in Atlanta. He began the offseason in Australia for 10 weeks before heading back to Georgia, where he said he saw the temperature...

Three Relievers The Houston Astros Should Consider Signing

Yes, I know. The Houston Astros have already improved their bullpen a tremendous amount from last season. Trust me, I absolutely love it, but I don’t want them to be finished quite yet. When the Astros entered the offseason, they knew that fixing the bullpen was high on their priorities list. Going out and signing Matt Albers, Jesse Crain, and Chad Qualls will do wonders for the...

Alexander Guerrero to the Dodgers now official, Peter Moylan DFA

The Dodgers made the signing of Cuban SS/2B Alexander Guerrero official just moments ago, and to clear room on the 40-man roster, pitcher Peter Moylan was designated. Guerrero was said to have agreed to a 4-year/$28 million contract just yesterday, but it was reasonable to remain skeptical given his history of rumored agreements. All the information on Guerrero can be found here...

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.

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...

Braves and Former Braves in the 2013 World Baseball Classic

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...
