Right-hander Edwin Jackson announces retirement after pitching for MLB-record 14 different teams

Longtime big league right-hander Edwin Jackson announced his retirement Friday, which also happened to be his 39th birthday and the 19th anniversary of his MLB debut. Jackson pitched for a record 14 different Major League teams in a career that spanned parts of 17 seasons….

A 107-game winner with a career 4.78 ERA and over 1,500 strikeouts, Jackson was an All-Star with the Tigers in 2009 and he won a World Series ring with the Cardinals in 2011. He also threw a 149-pitch, eight-walk no-hitter against the Rays on June 25, 2010 while with the Diamondbacks. No pitcher has thrown as many pitches in a game since.

Jackson pitched for at least two teams in every division except the AL West. During his career he suited up for the Dodgers ...

How Guardians pitching coach Carl Willis mastered the ‘art of the mound visit’

Candlesticks always make a nice gift.

Willis said he tends to remember mound visits that do not work out more than the ones that result in success. He recalled a visit he paid to Danys Baez years ago when the right-hander was facing Reds slugger Russell Branyan.

“I sat back down and the next pitch was a double off the wall that just barely missed being a home run,” Willis said. “It ended up driving in the winning runs. You wear those things a little bit.”

There are times when Willis says he’s cracked a joke just to lighten the mood, because things can get incredibly intense out there.

“It comes down to execution and it also comes down to that building trust and understanding ahead of time,” Willis said. “Nothing in this ...

Dragons veteran Kosuke Fukudome to retire after season

Kosuke Fukudome, a former big leaguer and the oldest active NPB player at 45, will retire at the end of the season, the Central League’s Chunichi Dragons said Thursday.

The left-handed hitter spent five years in the majors from 2008 with the Chicago Cubs, Cleveland Indians and Chicago White Sox, logging a total of 498 hits and 42 home runs in 596 games.

The outfielder joined the Dragons in 1999 as their top draft pick out of the corporate leagues and won the CL batting title twice as well as the league’s MVP award in 2006 before joining the Cubs as a free agent.

He returned to Japan in 2013 with the CL’s Hanshin Tigers before re-signing with Chunichi ahead of the 2021 season.

With less than a month left to go in the NPB season, ...

‘It’s special, man’: Oakland native Stewart has jersey retired by A’s

As a native of Oakland who grew up in the shadows of the Oakland Coliseum, Dave Stewart vividly recalls the excitement he felt when the A’s moved out west from Kansas City in 1968.

Stewart immediately became a regular at the Coliseum, with the seats down the right-field line his preferred spot so he and his cousins could get a glimpse of Reggie Jackson. With the Swingin’ A’s dynasty that captured three straight World Series titles from 1972-74 forming over the next few years, Stewart developed an affinity for the likes of Bert Campaneris, Catfish Hunter and Rollie Fingers.

Former MLB pitcher-turned-Port Authority cop Anthony Varvaro killed on way to Manhattan’s 9/11 service

A former Major League Baseball pitcher who left the mound to become a Port Authority cop was killed in a wrong-way crash Sunday — while headed to work at Manhattan’s 9/11 service, cops and sources said.

Tragic Officer Anthony Varvaro, 37 — a Staten Island native who pitched mainly for the Atlanta Braves during his six-year MLB career — joined the Port Authority Police Department in 2016, starting out at the World Trade Center Command, according to American Police Beat magazine.

The married father of four eventually became an instructor at the department’s police academy, the mag said in February — and a Port Authority source told The Post on Sunday that Varvaro was headed to work at the commemoration of the 21st anniversary ...

Why San Francisco Giants have gone from 107 wins to sub-.500

Keown: This is what happens when a team built on depth no longer has it. Gabe Kapler is mixing-and-matching and playing the percentages just as he did last year, but the system-wide lack of production—up and down the lineup, in the bullpen—turned last season’s alchemy into this season’s futility.

Olney: In 2021, future Hall of Famer Buster Posey had one of the best seasons of his career—and then retired; at 34, Brandon Crawford had his best offensive showing ever; a 33-year-old Brandon Belt bashed 29 homers and posted an OPS just under 1.000. And all three were very strong defensively. If you didn’t expect a significant regression, well, you weren’t paying attention, and the Giants have taken a big step back, especially on defense.

Twenty years after his World Series moment, Scott Spiezio puts his life back together [$]

Sub required.

It was April 4, 2018. And Spiezio had spent the last 13 years in a self-destructive spiral. Of all the inexplicable decisions he had made in that time, this was perhaps the most mind-boggling. He was ignoring indisputable signs of an at-risk liver.

Over the course of his decade-plus addiction, Spiezio was told numerous times that his liver enzymes were dangerously elevated. He often responded by staying clean just long enough to quell the danger, if not eliminate it. He didn’t take the threat seriously this time, either.

Spiezio saw a doctor who confirmed the suspected diagnosis. It was a disease that, if left untreated, could become extremely serious. He refused to be admitted. In fact, he continued drinking the next ...

Baseball’s new pre-arbitration bonus program includes money based on new version of WAR, according to memo

A memo distributed to teams Thursday outlined the plan to enrich standout players in the early parts of their careers who still make around the major league minimum, which this season is $700,000. The memo, obtained by ESPN, also included the totals for the new version of WAR created by Major League Baseball and the MLB Players Association to reward players.

The $50 million pool, agreed to in the new collective bargaining agreement and funded by the league, starts by distributing money to players who place high in awards voting. Those who are not yet in arbitration, in which players typically with three to six years of service negotiate their salaries, receive $2.5 million for winning the MVP or Cy Young awards; $1.75 million for second ...

Major League Baseball competition committee to vote on rules changes Friday with eye on quickening pace of play, sources say

The Major League Baseball competition committee is set to vote on Friday on rule changes that would begin in 2023 which include a first ever pitch clock, the elimination of the shift, bigger bases and a limit to how many times a pitcher can disengage from the rubber, according to sources familiar with the situation.

The goal is to increase action on the field, quicken the pace and reduce the amount of time it takes to play a major league game. The rules changes are expected to pass and include the following:

• A 15 second pitch clock with the bases empty and a 20 second clock with runners on.

• Two disengagements from the rubber - which includes pick-off attempts—per plate appearance.

• A requirement by hitters to be in the ...

St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright, catcher Yadier Molina tie MLB record for batterymates

St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright and catcher Yadier Molina made their 324th career start Thursday, tying the major league mark set by Detroit’s Mickey Lolich and Bill Freehan from 1963-1975.

Wainwright and Molina got a standing ovation from the crowd as they made their way in from the bullpen moments before first pitch against the Washington Nationals.

Wainwright and Molina are scheduled to set the record against the Milwaukee Brewers on Sept. 14.

The duo made their first start together on April 6, 2007, at Houston. Wainwright notched his first of 212 wins as a starter with Molina as his catcher, which is a major league record for batterymates.

At an Aug. 31 hearing, lawyers continued to argue the cases of Willy Fañas and Keiderson Pavon, who alleged in court filings that they agreed to deals with the Angels—Fañas for $1.8 million when he was 14 years old and Pavon for $425,000 as a 15-year-old—but that they were not honored following a change in the organization’s front office.

Cards show ‘zero panic,’ score 5 in 9th for walk-off win

The story of the night from Wednesday, of course, was the Cardinals grinding out one grueling ninth-inning at-bat after another to build momentum, until it came to a crescendo with Tommy Edman’s two-run walk-off double for an improbable 6-5 victory over the Nationals at Busch Stadium.

The bigger picture, however, is what this stirring win could do for St. Louis come postseason time next month.

Not long after Edman’s double eluded left fielder Alex Call’s glove and allowed Tyler O’Neill and rookie Ben DeLuzio to come around and score, superstar third baseman Nolan Arenado—one of the heroes of the madcap five-run rally—admitted the Cardinals have shifted their focus in recent days.

Rangers call up 3B prospect Josh Jung for remainder of the 2022 season

The Rangers on Friday will purchase the contract of 2019 first-round selection Josh Jung from Triple-A Round Rock, a person with knowledge of the club’s thinking said Wednesday. The 24-year-old third baseman joins them for the remainder of the season after shoulder surgery nearly wiped out his entire 2022 season. Presumably, this is not just a casual look. The Rangers expect him to be in the majors for good.

Jung was slashing .273/.321/.525/.841 with six homers in 23 games and 99 plate appearances for Round Rock. Ironically, Jung had been in a bit of a slump since September started. He was 1 for 4 on Wednesday against Oklahoma City, but has gone just 4 for 25 with no homers or walks in his last six games. He had 14 strikeouts.

Judge’s run to 60 might be harder than anyone else’s

Judge isn’t playing pre-integrated competition like Ruth did. He’s not playing in an expansion year like Maris, McGwire and Sosa were. Plus, the offensive environment today hardly resembles the high-flying—and controversial, to put it mildly—turn-of-the-21st-century times that saw home run records regularly shattered.

The baseball world has changed considerably since 2001, or 1961, or 1927. Almost all of it has changed in a way to make hitting more difficult, for any number of reasons, most revolving around velocity, pitch movement, and the endless streams of high-octane arms who don’t worry about pacing themselves to go deep into games. This, above all else, is why the strikeout rate keeps going up; the next time a batter from a ...

Doug Gottlieb Says Freddie Freeman, Casey Close Conduct He Alleged ‘Did Not Occur’

Close filed a lawsuit against Gottlieb in July alleging libel, per ESPN’s Jeff Passan.

Freeman cut ties with Close and Excel Sports Management in June because he was “angry with how his free-agent negotiations played out,” per ESPN’s Buster Olney.

Gottlieb then tweeted that Close intentionally withheld information from his client: “Casey Close never told Freddie Freeman about the Braves final offer, that is why Freeman fired him. He found out in Atlanta this weekend. It isn’t that rare to have happen in MLB, but it happened - Close knew Freddie would have taken the ATL deal.”

Gottlieb said Wednesday this “did not occur” and that “the sources I relied on were incorrect,” and he has deleted the tweet.

Baltimore Orioles, Toronto Blue Jays get heated as benches clear in 7th inning

Benches cleared during the seventh inning of Baltimore’s game against Toronto on Tuesday night after Orioles reliever Bryan Baker appeared to make a hand signal toward the Blue Jays’ dugout.

Baker struck out Matt Chapman to end the top of the seventh, then appeared to make a “chirping” signal with his hand. Players from both benches were quickly on the field, and the bullpens joined them, although order was quickly restored.

The Orioles went on to win 9-6 to pull within 3½ games of Toronto for the last American League wild card.

Blue Jays interim manager John Schneider said Baker has made similar gestures to the Jays in the past.

Former Royals pitcher Mark Littell dies at the age of 69

He only gave up two home runs that 1976 season. The first came on July 10th to Pedro Garcia, a light-hitting second baseman for the Detroit Tigers. The second home run was one of the more infamous home runs in Royals history, the Chris Chambliss 9th inning ALCS walk-off.

I’d asked Mark once about that home run and he said, “I felt good coming out of the pen, but the fans started throwing crap on the field and by the time they got it all cleared off, I’d gotten a little chilly. I threw him (Chambliss) a high fastball and he went up and got it!” Video shows the pitch was high, probably a ball, but no matter. It sent the Yankees to the World Series. Littell, who never met a stranger, harbored no ill feelings about the home run. He ...

Zac Gallen tied the major league record with his sixth consecutive scoreless start on Sunday, leading the Arizona Diamondbacks to a 5-1 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers.

Twenty-two-year-old Munetaka Murakami’s season home run total entered some rarified air Friday when he became the youngest Japan-born player to hit 50 and the first since Hideki Matsui did it in 2002.

Albert Pujols approaches 700 home runs: Do any other active sluggers have realistic chance at similar run?

After Pujols, the active leaders in home runs are Miguel Cabrera (506 HR, age 39), Nelson Cruz (459 HR, age 41), Giancarlo Stanton (371 HR, age 32) and Joey Votto (342 HR, age 38). Only Stanton has more than a season’s worth left in his career and he can hit them in bunches, but his health track record won’t allow it. Simply getting to 500 is much more realistic. Aaron Judge is potentially looking at single-season homer history in 2022, but the Yankees star is 30 and sits at 209 career homers.

MLB is overdue for a female umpire. One may be on the way.

The first thing to know about Jen Pawol — and listen closely because this is important — is that she would rather no one know much about her at all. Professional umpires are professionally inconspicuous, and women in baseball always have known the key to a life in baseball is the ability to blend.

The second thing to know about Jen Pawol — and this is important, too — is that she someday may become the first woman to umpire a Major League Baseball game. Pawol, 45, would never say that herself. From her perspective, she and the other members of her three-person Class AA umpiring crew are all in the same position, two steps from the majors, on the cusp of living their thankless dreams.

Cruz’s story is one of incredible perseverance. Looking at the websites that track stats paint a portrait of a guy who never lost faith in himself.
