Does that sound good?’ He goes, ‘Sounds good.’ And that was pretty much it.” Lynn pitched a five-hitter for the first complete game and shutout in the major leagues this season, and the Chicago White Sox beat the Kansas City Royals 6-0 on a rainy Thursday.

Buster Posey to remain San Francisco Giants’ primary catcher this season

Buster Posey will stay as the San Francisco Giants’ “primary catcher” in 2021 and will get “the lion’s share of the reps” behind the plate despite the presence of top prospect Joey Bart, second-year manager Gabe Kapler said during his session with the media Tuesday. Posey, a six-time All-Star who is owed $21.4 million in what could be the final year of his contract, sat out 2020 amid concerns about the coronavirus pandemic after he and his wife adopted twin girls who were born prematurely.

Boston Red Sox bring back Alex Cora as manager

The Boston Red Sox have brought back manager Alex Cora less than one year after they let him go following MLB’s investigation into the Astros’ sign-stealing scheme, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reported. Cora, 45, led the Red Sox to the 2018 World Series championship in his first year at the helm and was with Boston for the 2019 season. In January 2020, the sides parted ways following the league’s investigation into the Houston Astros’ sign-stealing scheme. At the time of his firing, the league was also investigating sign-stealing allegations against the Red Sox that ultimately were deemed far more minor. Looking for the […]

Indians manager Terry Francona dealing with blood clotting issue

The Cleveland Indians may be without manager Terry Francona even longer than anticipated.

The Indians had ruled him out for at least this three-game […]
