This is very bad news for the Cardinals.
St. Louis Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright is believed to have suffered a season-ending Achilles injury during Saturday’s win over the Milwaukee Brewers, FOX Sports Insider Ken Rosenthal reported Sunday morning.
Wainwright was injured while batting in the top of the fifth inning and had to be helped off the field. The team said afterward that Wainwright would have an MRI and be further examined when the Cardinals return home. They wrap up a six-game road ...
I don’t know how you beat the Tigers now…
Tigers righty Joe Nathan has torn the ulnar collateral ligament as well as a tendon in his right elbow, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports on Twitter...
Nathan, 40, opened the year as Detroit’s closer despite a challenging 2014 season in which he posted a 4.81 ERA. He struck out just 8.4 batters per nine while walking 4.5 per nine, both of which were the worst marks of his career since he moved to the pen.
That was obviously not the output that the ...
Right-hander Carlos Carrasco was hit in the face in the first inning by a line drive off the bat of Melky Cabrera and had to be taken off the field on a motorized stretcher.
Carrasco suffered a bruised jaw, but X-rays at Lutheran Medical Center showed no signs of a concussion or head injury. It is not known how many starts Carrasco will miss.
Scary moment in last night’s Indians game. It looks like Carrasco is going to be OK - if so, he’s a very lucky man.
Derek Holland never looked right on the mound for the Texas Rangers in their home opener. Now he won’t be back there for at least six weeks—and maybe more.
Outfielders Shin-Soo Choo (back spasms) and Ryan Rua (sprained right ankle) also made early exits because of injuries. Choo was feeling better afterward, but Rua had a protective boot on his foot and could be headed to the disabled list.
WSJ: You’ve discussed how important technology is to reach young fans. When will a 15-year-old in New York be able to watch a Yankees game on his phone?
Manfred: The best way to answer that question is to say the better part of my workday today was consumed by the topic of in-market streaming. It is particularly complicated in the context of a media market that is changing so quickly, but I do believe we will get a solution on in-market streaming in the relatively near future.

We talkin’ bout practice????
The schedule isn’t going to shrink back to the 25-game range of the mid-80s because all the municipalities that agreed to build the mega two-team complexes now in vogue demand 30 spring dates out of their stadiums to pay the bills.
Fine. Make the front end of spring training all about top prospects. Reverse the reporting dates now in existence. Have a manageable number of minor leaguers - lord knows they could all use the instruction from and interaction with ...
Washington is the favorite for the pennant? Nat so fast.
Washington center fielder Denard Span had surgery Monday to repair a right core muscle injury and will miss the Nationals’ opener next month.
Manager Matt Williams said the projected time for Span’s return is uncertain and added “you’re looking at four-to-six weeks before he can start doing baseball activity again.”
Span had surgery to repair a sports hernia injury in December and reported discomfort at the start of spring training, ...
Having No. 3 starter Drew Smyly sidelined indefinitely, with his availability to start the season in question due to shoulder tendinitis, is bad enough news for the Rays.
“I think it’s fair to say there is a concern,” manager Kevin Cash said Sunday.
Worse is that the depth after their top four starters was already one of the biggest questions, and potential flaws, of several on their roster anyway.
Pence was diagnosed with a non-displaced ulnar fracture and was being fitted with a cast; he is expected to be sidelined for 6-8 weeks, meaning the earliest he could return is mid-April.
Pence was struck by a pitch from Cubs minor league right-hander Corey Black. He usually sprints to first base after he’s hit by a pitch but stayed down for several seconds before he began walking toward the base.
The Blue Jays announced early Thursday morning that left-fielder Michael Saunders suffered a torn meniscus in his left knee in a freak accident at the Mattick Training Centre on Wednesday.
Saunders, a native of Victoria B.C., stepped on an exposed sprinkler head in the outfield during batting practice and heard a pop.
Bad luck for Saunders and the Jays. Not much left in free agency - maybe Andy Dirks would make sense?
Fielder, speaking before the club’s annual pep-rally awards banquet at the Dallas Omni, said all is well heading into Year 2. The rehabilitation work has gone well, and he expects to be a full participant when spring training opens.
“I could play a pick-up game right now,” Fielder said. “I’m 100 percent. … Whatever it was before, it’s back.
“I feel healthy. That’s the difference. I’m feeling really good and ready to go.”
Round is a shape…
Chicago Eagle, January 2, 1915:
Thirty-five deaths and 918 injuries were caused by baseball during 1914, according to figures made public by a sport writer who kept a tabulation of the season’s records.
Of the players who died from injuries 20 were hit by pitched balls, five were struck by bats, four were in collisions, four overexerted themselves, one was hurt sliding into a base, and one was killed in a fight.
Injuries to amateur players are classified as follows: Broken limbs, 314; ...
As Wade points out, overall risk has increased greatly in recent years, because with the amount of money and years involved, contracts have become virtually uninsurable; endless exclusions and high premiums make them cost-prohibitive when added to the cost of the actual contract.
This is the sort of deal I thought Brett Anderson would get. Seems like a great low-risk, high-upside signing for the Padres.
Edit: Title fixed. Jim.
