  8. Could Nelson Cruz end up in Detroit?

    AJ Mass

  9. Bits: Melky back on the DL; Darvish K's 14

    Eric Karabell

    Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Rajai Davis runs really fast, and he likes to show it pretty much every chance he gets. Davis isn't a terrific baseball player overall, but the guy can flat-out steal bases. Even with his intermittent playing time, nobody...

  11. Potential fantasy impact of Biogenesis

    Eric Karabell

  13. Crime still pays in MLB

    Buster Olney

    Melky Cabrera was suspended for the use of performance-enhancing drugs in 2012 and lost about a third of his salary, or about $1.8 million of the $6 million that he made. Then, when he went into free agency, he signed a two-year, $16 million deal wit...
