Angels Release Raul Ibanez

Angels Release Raul Ibanez

Denis Poroy/Getty Images(ANAHEIM, Calif.) — After 19 seasons in Major League Baseball, it may finally be the end of the line for Raul Ibanez as the Los Angeles Angels have released the veteran outfielder.
At age 42, Ibanez was the second-oldest active player in Major League Baseball behind Cleveland Indians designated hitter Jason Giambi.
This season, Ibanez was hitting just .157 with three home runs, and 21 RBIs.
“I am disappointed in the way that I performed for this great organization,” Ibanez said in a statement released by the team on Saturday night. “Jerry [Dipoto] and Mike [Scioscia] were totally straightforward and professional with me today and I will always appreciate and respect them for that.”
If this is the end for Ibanez, he will finish with a career batting average of .273 with 303 home runs, 1,202 RBIs, and 2,019 hits.
He played for the Seattle Mariners, Kansas City Royals, Philadelphia Phillies, New York Yankees, and the Angels.

Marlins Shortstop Rafael Furcal Lands on the DL

Marlins Shortstop Rafael Furcal Lands on the DL

Brian D. Kersey/Getty Images(MIAMI) — Injuries continue to plague veteran shortstop Rafael Furcal as he will be placed on the disabled list with a hamstring injury.
The 36-year-old Furcal was placed on the 15-day disabled list earlier on Sunday after re-injuring his left hamstring on Saturday.
Hamstring and groin injuries have limited Furcal this season to all of just nine games in 2014. He also missed all of the 2013 season with an elbow injury.
This is just the latest setback for the former All-Star. Furcal was hitting just .171 this season for the Marlins and it is unknown when or if he will be able to return to the lineup.
Despite his durability issues, the Marlins signed Furcal to a one-year deal worth $3 million during the offseason.
Derek Dietrich was recalled from Triple-A New Orleans to replace Furcal’s spot on the roster. He’s hit .241 for the team in 42 games this season.

Alex Torres Becomes First to Wear Protective Cap

Alex Torres Becomes First to Wear Protective Cap

Justin Edmonds/Getty Images(SAN DIEGO) — When Alex Torres entered Saturday night’s matchup against Los Angeles in the eighth inning, he became the first pitcher in Major League history to wear a league-approved protective cap. 
The cap features padded inserts around the hat, enlarging the size of the hat. The San Diego Padres reliever commented after the game that the difference “isn’t much” and that it doesn’t feel as it looks. The league signed off on the caps on January 17 after testing multiple prototypes.
Major League Baseball first began looking into more protective headgear after Brandon McCarthy suffered life-threatening brain injuries after being struck in the ear by a line drive while pitching for Oakland in 2012. McCarthy has recovered and is now pitching for Arizona.
Torres has become an advocate for protection for pitchers after watching Alex Cobb suffer a concussion due to a line drive to the head when the two were teammates in Tampa Bay. Since then, Cobb has fought to put padded inserts into the caps of young baseball and softball players.

Blue Jays Rally From 8-0 Deficit, Beat Reds 14-9

Blue Jays Rally From 8-0 Deficit, Beat Reds 14-9

Jamie Sabau/Getty Images(CINCINNATI, Ohio) — The Toronto Blue Jays trailed 8-0 after two innings on Friday night but Edwin Encarnacion led the charge as they rallied to beat Cincinnati 14-9 over the Reds. It was the second largest comeback in franchise history for Toronto (42-33) who snapped a three game losing streak.
Cincinnati (35-37) scored eight runs in the bottom of the second inning to take the large lead. Devin Morasco started things off with a two-run home run before Jay Bruce added a two-run shot of his own for the final scoring play of the frame. Eleven total batters came to the plate for the Reds who chased starter Liam Hendricks after an inning and two-thirds.
The Blue Jays began the comeback in the top of the third with Encarnacion’s first three-run shot of the night off Mat Latos. After Cincinnati added another run in the fifth, Toronto added two runs in the sixth and three in the seventh to trail 9-8 heading into the eighth. Dioner Navarro’s double in the eighth to score Encarnacion, sending the game into the ninth tied at 9-9.
Aroldis Chapman then came on for the Reds to attempt and keep it a tied game. However, Erik Kratz and Melkey Cabrera had RBI hits, putting Toronto ahead 11-9 before Encarnacion launched his second three-run blast of the night off Sam LeCure. In total, Encarnacion had a career high six RBI’s while the two teams combined to hit six homers.
It was the first time the Reds have given up an eight-run lead and lost since May 20, 2010 in a loss at Atlanta. Meanwhile, it was the second largest comeback for the Blue Jays behind a 10-run comeback against Boston in 1989.

Angels Sticking with Slumping Raul Ibanez

Angels Sticking with Slumping Raul Ibanez

Denis Poroy/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Los Angeles Angels’ outfielder Raul Ibanez can’t seem to snap out of his season-long funk, but the Angels don’t plan on sending him to the bench.
Ibanez is in his 19th season in Major League Baseball, and at 42 years old, is the second-oldest player in baseball.
In 57 games this season, Ibanez is batting just .157 with three home runs and 21 RBIs.
With the team calling up prospect C.J. Cron, some are wondering why he doesn’t take Ibanez’s place as the team’s designated hitter. Manager Mike Scioscia is sticking with the veteran.
“There’s no doubt he’s making some strides in the batter’s box, and you’re seeing better swings,” Scioscia told the Los Angeles Times. “The bottom line is production. Nobody understands that better than Raul. He knows he needs to have better at-bats. Nobody is working harder than Raul, and we’re confident he’s going to contribute for us.”
Despite the lack of production for Ibanez, the Angels are fourth in Major League Baseball in runs scored.

Braves Pitcher Gavin Floyd Suffers Fractured Elbow

Braves Pitcher Gavin Floyd Suffers Fractured Elbow

Major League Baseball(NEW YORK) — The Atlanta Braves are dealing with yet another pitching injury as starter Gavin Floyd will be placed on the disabled list after breaking a bone is his throwing elbow on Thursday night.
Floyd broke the olecranon — the bony tip of the ulna that sticks out behind the elbow — in the seventh inning on his first pitch to outfielder Jayson Werth.
This is a rare injury for a player, so the team isn’t exactly sure when he’ll be able to get back on the mound, but he’s expected to make a full recovery.
The team had signed Floyd because of injuries to the team’s starting rotation heading into the season. The Braves have already lost starers Kris Medlen and Brandon Beachy for the season as both required Tommy John Surgery.
Floyd was off to a great start with the Braves. In 9 starts, he went 2-2 with a 2.65 ERA. The 31-year-old is in his 11th Major League Season, and has a career 72-72 record.

Swisher Slams Cleveland Past Angels in Extras

Swisher Slams Cleveland Past Angels in Extras

Joe Robbins/Getty Images(CLEVELAND, Ohio) — Albert Pujols hit a go-ahead, two-run single in the top of the tenth that put Los Angeles ahead 3-1. Nick Swisher answered with a walk-off grand slam in the bottom half of the inning to give Cleveland a 5-3 victory on Thursday afternoon.
“When I first hit it, I said, all right, that’s a double,” said Swisher. “The next thing you know, it went out. I flipped my bat. I was going crazy.”
The two-out hit was Swisher’s only one of the day, striking out each time in his previous three at-bats. It was also the second time that the Indians (37-36) came from behind in the game. With a runner on third in the second, Cleveland starter Justin Masterson delivered a wild pitch that allowed Howie Kendrick to score and give the Angels (38-33) a 1-0 advantage. 
Cleveland answered back in the third on a groundout from Michael Bourn in the third, the last run scored in the first nine innings. Both Masterson and Los Angeles starter, C.J. Wilson went seven innings before turning things over to the bullpen.
Pujols’ two-RBI hit came off reliever Scott Atchison with two outs, seemingly giving the Angels the victory. However, Bourn walked to lead off before Jason Kipnis doubled two batters later. After Carlos Santana walked to load the bases, Ernesto Frieri came on to try and finish off the game. Frieri induced a fly out from Daniel Murphy for the second out before Swisher’s slam gave the Indians a 5-3 win.

Yankees Sweep First Place Blue Jays

Mike Stobe/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — David Phelps turned in a quality start while Carlos Beltran drove in two runs as the Yankees swept Toronto in a three-game set on Thursday. It was the 16th consecutive win for New York (38-33) over the Blue Jays (41-33) at Yankee Stadium.
Phelps (3-4) picked up the win, tossing seven innings and allowing just two runs. The righty struck out seven in his outing but did give up a two-run homer to Melkey Cabrera in the third that tied the game at 2-2. New York quickly took the lead back when Beltran hit a sacrifice fly to left, scoring Ellsbury, before he added another RBI in the fifth with a ground rule double.
After Derek Jeter drove in a run with a ground out in the sixth, Yangervis Solarte worked a pinch-hit walk in the seventh that made it a 6-2 lead. Sean Kelley gave up a two-run blast in the top of the eighth to Edwin Encarnacion that closed the gap to two. Matt Thornton then allowed a base hit in the ninth before Adam Warren entered the game and picked up his second save of the year.
Drew Hutchinson (5-5) lasted just four and one-third innings, giving up four runs on six hits. The sweep tied New York with the Blue Jays in the loss column and moved them just a game and a half out of first in the American League East.

A’s Have Best Record in MLB After Rolling Past Rangers

A’s Have Best Record in MLB After Rolling Past Rangers

Brian D. Kersey/Getty Images(OAKLAND, Calif.) — For the first time since May 22, Sonny Gray allowed fewer than three runs, helping the Oakland Athletics top the Texas Rangers 4-2 Wednesday and grab the best record in baseball. Gray pitched seven innings allowing six hits, two runs, two walks while striking out seven.
“I don’t think there really is a difference other than I was able to make pitches,” Gray said. “That’s probably it. People sometimes forget that baseball is a pretty hard game and there’s going to be some rough patches that you’re going to go through.

Oakland (44-28) started its scoring in the third inning when John Jaso doubled to center off Rangers starter Nick Tepesch allowing Craig Gentry to score. Jaso crossed home plate just a few batters later when Josh Donaldson slapped a single to center.

The Rangers (35-37) tied the game in the fifth when Shin-Soo Choo hit a two-run single, but the A’s answered back in the bottom of the inning scoring twice to take the lead for good.

Sean Doolittle pitched a perfect ninth to earn his ninth save of the season.

Kershaw No-Hits Rockies

Kershaw No-Hits Rockies

Victor Decolongon/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) — Clayton Kershaw can add another feather to his cap: the 26-year-old Los Angeles Dodgers left-hander no-hit the Colorado Rockies Wednesday night, as the Dodgers blanked the Rockies 8-0.
Kershaw, who already is a two-time Cy Young Award winner, struck out a career-high 15 while walking none. He becomes the first pitcher ever to strikeout that many batters without allowing a walk.
The Dodgers’ ace almost had the perfect game. In the seventh inning shortstop Hanley Ramirez fielded a Corey Dickerson grounder and threw wide to first baseman Adrian Gonzalez, allowing Dickerson to get on base. The play was ruled a throwing error and was the only blemish in Kershaw’s 107 pitch masterpiece.
While Dickerson was the only man to get on base, he also ended the game when he struck out swinging sending the crowd at Dodger Stadium wild.
“To get to do it in front of this crowd with how excited they were, and how into it they were is pretty special,” Kershaw said.
The no-hitter is the second of the season for the Dodgers. Josh Beckett threw one in Philadelphia on May 25. It’s the first time since 1956 two Dodgers pitchers threw a no-hitter in the same season.
“I am so amazed,” Kershaw said. “Beckett told me he was going to teach me how to do that, so I have Josh to thank.”
Kershaw’s no-hitter is the 22nd in Dodgers history.

Ron Vesely/MLB Photos via Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) — Dodgers shortstop Hanley Ramirez left Tuesday night’s 4-2 win over the Rockies with a bruised right finger.
X-rays on the finger came back negative and Ramirez is listed as day-to-day.
“We’re playing better, and you don’t want to see one of your middle guys get hurt,” Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said. “He was swinging well, and you don’t want to see anything happen to anybody. We’re getting close to getting back to full strength.”
“Juan [Uribe] should be back soon, and you don’t want to see it go back the other way,” he added.
Ramirez is batting .260 with 11 homers and 42 RBIs this season.

Rangers Sign 1B Carlos Pena to Minor League Contract

Thinkstock(ARLINGTON, Texas) — The Texas Rangers signed first baseman Carlos Pena to a minor league contract and assigned him to Triple-A Round Rock, the team announced on Tuesday.
The 36-year-old Pena split last season between the Houston Astros and the Kansas City Royals, where he batted .207 with eight home runs and 25 RBIs. During his 13 year big league career, Pena has hit 25 or more homers in a season six times, including a career high 46 with the Tampa Bay Rays in 2007.
Pena returns to the club that originally selected him with the 10th overall pick in the 1998 MLB draft. Since that time, he has played for the Rangers (2001), Oakland Athletics (2002), Detroit Tigers (2002-05), Boston Red Sox (2006), Rays (2007-10, 2012), Chicago Cubs (2011), Astros (2013) and Royals (2013).

Bronson Arroyo Placed on DL for First Time

Bronson Arroyo Placed on DL for First Time

Stephen Dunn/Getty Images(PHOENIX) —  The Arizona Diamondbacks placed starting pitcher Bronson Arroyo on the disabled list for the first time in his career on Monday.  
The 37-year-old starting pitcher was sent to the 15-day DL with right elbow tendonitis, ending Arroyo’s 369 consecutive-starts streak. 
The only player with a longer active starts streak is the Toronto Blue Jays’ Mark Buehrle (443).
“It’s really unfortunate when it’s a guy who has an unblemished record when it comes to posting up each and every time,” Diamondbacks general manager Kevin Towers said. “But it would have been hard to run him back out there again, going to war as he says, against AK-47s with his little .22. He still found a way to win, which was amazing.” 
Arroyo has pitched in 15 major league seasons. During that time, Arroyo pitched 2,364 2/3 innings, compiling a 145-131 record with a 4.53 ERA, 1.29 WHIP, 642 walks and 1,526 strikeouts. 
Outfielder Roger Kieschnick was recalled from Triple-A Reno to take Arroyo’s roster spot.

Matt Wieters to Have Season-Ending Tommy John Surgery

Matt Wieters to Have Season-Ending Tommy John Surgery

Robbie Rogers/MLB Photos via Getty Images(ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.) — Baltimore Orioles catcher Matt Wieters will have season-ending Tommy John surgery on Tuesday, the team confirmed on Monday.
Wieters had a .308 batting average, five homers and 18 RBIs in 26 games.
“We were hoping to get real lucky today, but I think we all knew where it was headed,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said on Monday. “It really wasn’t making a whole lot of progress.”
Wieters has not played since May 10 and will have the injured ligament replaced by a tendon from the right wrist. 
Caleb Joseph and Nick Hundley are the two other catchers Baltimore has on their roster.
“I feel real confident with the two guys that we have here, and the depth we have below,” Showalter said.
