Middlebrooks probably OK

A previously broken wrist and a lack of depth at third base had people panicking when Will Middlebrooks had to leave in the first inning of Wednesday night's spring game between the Red Sox and Orioles. However, the injury may not be all that seriou

Bourn's wait and lame ducks

Michael Bourn didn't want to wait, Ron Gardenhire isn't a lame duck, and the Royals still have prospects. That's right, it's AL Central rumors and news time.

Banged up: Castro, Middlebrooks, Wheeler

It's less than a week into spring training and the injuries are already mounting. Surprised? You shouldn't be. This is baseball, injuries happen.

Dbacks, Booty, and a splinter

The Arizona Diamondback are looking to keep up with the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco Giants in the west. First, they'll have to make it through rumors that don't matter, strange controversies, and spring injuries.

Middlebrooks injures wrist (again)

The Boston Red Sox may have suffered a big blow at third base. Will Middlebrooks had to leave Boston's spring game today with an apparent wrist injury. Yep, the same wrist wrist he broke last season.

Sox sign an Aussie

The Boston Red Sox signed one of Australia's World Baseball Classic pitchers today. The team and Ryan Rowland-Smith came to terms on a deal today.

Mascots, they're real

Did you know there are Twitter accounts for team mascots? Well now you do!

MLBDD Editorials Week 8

Original content from some of the best writers the internet has to offer - MLB Daily Dish Editorials wrap-up.

Granderson out until May

In a bad break (terrible pun intended), the New York Yankees have lost a prominent piece of their outfield. Curtis Granderson suffered a broken forearm Sunday.

Late Lunch 2/24

It was another busy weekend in the world of baseball news. With spring training games underway and teams trying to fill out their rosters, the rumors didn't quit. And neither did the injuries.

Tigers not trading

For now, the Detroit Tigers are perfectly content with filling any holes internally. Of course, this can change at the drop of a hat. All it will take is the right offer to come along.

Eastern Healing

As spring training continues to get under way, the contenders and non-contenders in the American League East are preparing for what will surely be a grueling, competitive season.

Zack Wheeler could be ready

The New York Mets hope they have something special in Zack Wheeler, but they don't want to rush him to the bigs. Most people think Wheeler will start in Triple-A, but that's not a guarantee.

Jays, Phillies still dealing

In a minor move today, the Philadelphia Phillies traded a Major League tested pitcher to the Toronto Blue Jays for a Single-A infielder.

Ian Stewart's spot not guaranteed

Injuries can cost a player their job. Not just because of the missed playing time due to recovery, but because other players can step in an steal a job away. The latter may end up being the case for the Cubs' Ian Stewart.

Dodgers shopping Capuano

Stocked full of starting pitchers, the Los Angeles Dodgers are gauging what they can get in return for one of their veterans. The team is reported shopping Chris Capuano.

Will work for baseball

One of the few members of the 600 home run club, Jim Thome surprisingly can't find work. However, he's not ready to call it quits yet.

Mets not biting on K-Rod

The New York Mets have had a rough go of things since 2006. However, as the team emerges from financial ruin and works toward rebuilding, they will have some solid pieces in place. And they have other options available.

And then there was baseball

Ladies and gentlemen, there was baseball today. Rejoice in the beauty that is our game. Spring training is officially upon us, and we've got the first day's round up.

Verlander wants $200M

Justin Verlander has made it clear he wants to finish his career in Detroit. For that to happen, the Tigers are going to have to open their wallets as Verlander wants to be the highest-paid pitcher ever.

Rockies to trade Hernandez?

With the depth they have at catcher, it would make sense for the Colorado Rockies to explore a trade. One candidate for such a trade would be Ramon Hernandez.

Volquez wants an extension

The San Diego Padres have not been very active this offseason. They may, however, be active during the season as they evaluate their current roster. This includes Edinson Volquez who is looking for an extension.

Headley and other trade candidates

Now that everyone has signed their arbitration eligible players, it's time to look at what these contracts mean. Could a one-year deal mean a player is on his way out via trade, ready for an extension, or likely to hit free agency eventually?

Royals sign 12

The Kansas City Royals, not long removed from coming to terms with seven players, have announced one-year contracts for 12 other players tonight.

Ryan Braun's debt to fans

Scott Miller of CBS Sports is having a hard time believing Ryan Braun's story. Do players like him owe more than a canned statement to fans?

Bargain Bourn and High-Mileage Hernandez

It was a busy week leading up to the official report date for position players. There were signings, extensions, scandals and more.

Door still open for Mets, Valverde

The New York Mets were previously linked to Jose Valverde this offseason, but then they signed Brandon Lyon. Even with closer Frank Francisco not ready for Opening Day, the club has some additional depth with Bobby Parnell. Yet, they still may have

Rays sign Jack Cust

The Tampa Bay Rays were not quite done adding players as made evident by their move today. They signed Jack Cust to a minor league deal earlier this morning.

Padres, Richard avoid arbitration

The San Diego Padres may end up being the only team with a player to go to arbitration. The team and Clayton Richard are not close to a deal and will likely allow an arbitrator decide Richard's 2013 contract.

Biogenesis PED update

As the investigation into the now defunct anti-aging clinic in Miami continues, we will surely learn more. Right now, though, players are having to deal with the scrutiny of being in the spotlight for something other than their on-field skills.
