Mets hiring David Stearns as president of baseball operations

The New York Mets are hiring David Stearns as their president of baseball operations, sources told ESPN on Tuesday, tabbing the architect of multiple division titles in Milwaukee to help deliver the first World Series championship to Queens in nearly four decades. Stearns, 38, has long been rumored to take over the Mets after stepping down as Brewers president after the 2022 season and will officially start his five-year deal in early October, after the regular season ends, sources told ESPN. A New York native who grew up a Mets fan, Stearns was denied permission by the Brewers to talk about the Mets’ top baseball operations […]

Lucas Giolito among host of Angels placed on waivers

The Los Angeles Angels placed nearly a quarter of their roster on waivers Tuesday, including starter Lucas Giolito, relievers Matt Moore, Reynaldo Lopez and Dominic Leone, and outfielders Hunter Renfroe and Randal Grichuk, prompting a flurry of intrigue leading up to Thursday when the teams that win the claims will be revealed, sources told ESPN. The use of waivers, in which the Angels essentially will give away the players for a $50,000 waiver fee and salary relief, stunned the baseball industry. Between now and the expiration of the waiver period Thursday, teams can place claims on players, who, in the meantime, are permitted to play. The team with the worst […]

Paredes and Díaz homer as Rays stop seven-game skid with 10-4 win over Braves

Isaac Paredes and Yandy Díaz homered as the Tampa Bay Rays snapped a season-high, seven-game skid with a 10-4 victory over the Atlanta Braves on Sunday in a matchup of teams with the best records in baseball. Zach Eflin (10-4) gave up two runs and four hits over five innings in a 77-pitch outing as Tampa Bay avoided the three-game series sweep. The 29-year-old righty is 9-1 in 10 starts at home. “It’s a day we kind of needed a win,” Eflin said. “Get right back on track. Take that momentum into the break.” Travis d’Arnaud homered for the MLB-best Braves, who are 20-3 since June 14 […]

Martinez’s 3-run shot lifts Dodgers over Padres 4-2, win 4th in row

Just off the injured list, J.D. Martinez made his presence felt with a big blast. He hit a go-ahead three-run homer in the first inning, Julio Urías tossed seven strong innings and the Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the San Diego Padres 4-2 on Saturday for their fourth consecutive victory. The NL West leaders earned their fifth consecutive series win and have won 17 of their last 20 at Dodger Stadium. Their 14-6 home record is tops in the division. The Dodgers stretched their lead to six games over the third-place Padres. “We got a chance to go for the jugular tomorrow and that’s our intent,” Dodgers manager Dave […]

Astros’ Jose Altuve resumes baseball activities, return not set

Jose Altuve restarted some baseball activities this week, but there still isn’t a timetable for when Houston’s star second baseman will return to the team. Altuve fractured his right thumb in the World Baseball Classic and had surgery to repair the injury March 22. After his surgery, Astros general manager Dana Brown stated he would be out at least eight weeks. It has been six weeks so far, and while Altuve was cleared to return to baseball activities this week — including throwing, running and fielding — he hasn’t been cleared to swing. “I think right now it’s hard to tell,” […]

Canada manager Ernie Witt stated Freeman, who was not in the lineup Wednesday against Mexico, is out of the WBC “for now.” “He’s out of this tournament for now,” Witt told reporters, according to the Los Angeles Times. “The Dodgers decided that. He’s over in camp right now getting looked at by the doctors and training staff.” Looking […]

Bryce Harper (elbow) to report to Phillies camp Wednesday

Philadelphia Phillies slugger Bryce Harper says he will report to spring training Wednesday as he continues recovering from elbow surgery and then determine when he can return full time. The two-time National League MVP was injured in April and last played right field April 16 in Miami.

His teammates have been adjusting to new pitch clock rules, part of Major League Baseball’s efforts to speed up the game. Looking for the […]

Marlins acquire All-Star Luis Arraez in trade with Twins

The Marlins and Twins executed a long-rumored trade Friday, with American League batting champion Luis Arraez heading to Miami for right-hander Pablo Lopez and a pair of prospects, it was announced. The deal, variations of which the teams have discussed for months, brings a much needed bat to the Marlins, adding to their winter signing of Jean Segura, who’s expected to play third base. The cost was significant, though. In addition to Lopez, a talented starter who slots in toward the top of Minnesota’s rotation, the Marlins will send shortstop Jose Salas and outfielder Byron Chourio, two well-regarded teenagers, to the Twins. “We’ve talked about it quite often, wanting to add offense […]

Cubs, first baseman Mancini agree on 2-year deal

Free agent first baseman Trey Mancini is in agreement with the Chicago Cubs on a two-year deal which includes an opt out clause after the first season, sources told ESPN on Saturday night. Mancini, 30, spent his entire career with the Baltimore Orioles before being traded last summer to the Houston Astros, where he played a part-time role in their run to the World Series title.

He hit 18 home runs split between the two teams and made a key defensive play at first for the Astros during the World Series. Looking for the […]
