  2. Bits: Future ace Michael Wacha shines

    Eric Karabell

  4. Bits: Heyward out; Cubs' Castro slumping

    Eric Karabell

    It's really a shame that Atlanta Braves outfielder Jason Heyward had his jaw broken by a Jonathon Niese pitch Wednesday afternoon, because Heyward was playing well, and now his regular season is likely over. Oh, you won't find his name among the top ...

  6. Morse undervalued; other injured sluggers

    Eric Karabell

  11. SB projections: My updated top 10

    Eric Karabell

    Nobody should be terribly surprised that San Diego Padres shortstop Everth Cabrera is running wild, because this is what he did last season. Cabrera led the National League -- and all middle infielders -- in stolen bases last season, and all of baseb...

  13. Bits: Kelly Johnson, Blue Jays hitters

    Eric Karabell

    Two Tampa Bay Rays hitters are featured among the top 10 hitters on ESPN's most added list, but only one of them is intriguing. That's second baseman/outfielder Kelly Johnson, who has fit in well in the team's No. 2 lineup slot while playing mainly l...

  14. Michael Young holding his own, but ...

    Eric Karabell

    You have to give Philadelphia Phillies third baseman Michael Young credit for a few things: 1) He is among the league leaders in batting average and hits; and 2) While he's no Gold Glover at third base, he's certainly not killing the team t...

  16. Fowler, Rockies off to solid start on road

    Eric Karabell
