  1. When will Cain pitch again?

    AJ Mass

    Earlier this week, as reported in the San Francisco Chronicle, the San Francisco Giants "confirmed that pitcher Matt Cain (would be) headed to Florida to meet with Dr. James Andrews to get a second opinion on his elbow problem." A visit to Dr. Andrew...

  2. Will Phillies fire GM?

    AJ Mass

    There was a lot of trade deadline action on Thursday, but one team that was noticeably absent from the festivities was the Philadelphia Phillies. Despite being in the National League East cellar and having veteran talent that could have been dealt aw...

  3. Which A's SP gets the boot?

    AJ Mass

    On Monday, Jesse Chavez was tagged for three home runs by the Houston Astros in a 7-3 loss. After the game, the Oakland Athletics pitcher said, "It won't happen again." He may be right, but not for the reasons he meant at the time. When the A's tr...

  4. Zobrist on way out of Tampa Bay?

    AJ Mass

    One of the big deadline deals from Thursday was the three-way swap that sent David Price to the Detroit Tigers. In return, the Tampa Bay Rays received "left-hander Drew Smyly and minor league infielder Willy Adames from the Tigers." But they also...

  5. Royals going forward without Hosmer

    AJ Mass

    The Kansas City Royals got some bad news on Thursday, as they learned Eric Hosmer may miss up to six weeks or more with a stress fracture in his right hand. The injury, according to the Kansas City Star, is the result of the first baseman having been...

  6. Takeaways from Cliff Lee's 2014 season

    Eric Karabell

    Philadelphia Phillies left-hander Cliff Lee didn't figure to be among the traded on Thursday before the non-waiver deadline, as he had pitched only twice since missing significant time with a left flexor pronator strain, and hadn't pitched so well. W...

  7. The many August trade candidates

    Buster Olney

    A week ago, a rival executive forecast an elbow injury for Cliff Lee, citing different developing factors the way a meteorologist reads weather conditions. Lee has basically had a career free of arm injuries, the rival exec noted, and has thrown a to...

  8. Astros clean up in Jarred Cosart trade

    Keith Law

    The six-player trade between the Astros and Marlins was the most interesting one of the day because, unlike most of the other deals at this exciting deadline, it included actual prospects -- minor leaguers and very young big leaguers going in both di...

  9. Yankees prove productive at the deadline

    Keith Law

    The Yankees were busy on Thursday, and managed to add a pair of small upgrades without doing any damage to their farm system. I argued all spring that the Yanks should sign Stephen Drew to play one year at third base, then slide him to shortstop a...

  10. What's next for the Boston Red Sox?

    Jim Bowden

    The Boston Red Sox didn't trade Jon Lester and John Lackey on Thursday with a "rebuild" in mind. Given its core of veteran talent, this is not a team that needs to rebuild. Instead, Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington's objective in trading Les...

  11. Red Sox ace Andrew Miller trade

    Keith Law

    It's a small deal relative to the others we saw on Thursday, but the Red Sox acquiring lefty Eduardo Rodriguez from the Orioles for two months of left-handed reliever Andrew Miller was the best value move of the day -- a great return for Boston, and ...

  12. A shockingly low return for David Price

    Keith Law

    I'm floored that this is all the Rays got for David Price -- as are some of the execs I've talked to so far -- and I can't imagine that the return this winter would have been any worse. The three-way trade that sends Price to Detroit, Nick Franklin, ...

  13. Fantasy impact of David Price deal

    Eric Karabell

    The Tampa Bay Rays are apparently not going to try to make the postseason in 2014, as Thursday's trade deadline saw them move lefty David Price. Price was part of a three-team deal that landed him with the Detroit Tigers, and that really shouldn't al...

  14. Don't overspend to target Taveras

    Eric Karabell

    The trade of John Lackey for Allen Craig and Joe Kelly is, on the surface, really good news for St. Louis Cardinals rookie outfielder Oscar Taveras, because it opens up right field for him on a full-time basis. But what if Taveras just isn't ready to...

  15. Boston's return for Lackey merely OK

    Keith Law

    With Michael Wacha potentially out for the season, the Cardinals needed a better starter than Justin Masterson to shore up their rotation. John Lackey fits the bill, especially because they didn't have to dip into their farm system to acquire him. To...

  16. Top RP likely to be moved

    The San Diego Padres haven't yet decided if they're going to be dealing away reliever Joaquin Benoit before the trade deadline, but if they do choose to go that route, both the Los Angeles Dodgers and New York Yankees would likely be interested. A...
