Stephen Strasburg set to begin rehab assignment for Washington Nationals

The Washington Nationals‘ pitching staff has been a major part of their struggles over the past few years. Injuries and ineffectiveness have sent the 2019 World Series champions to the NL East basement. That has been the case again this season as the Nationals’ 4.93 ERA ranks 13th in the National League. Help may be […] Stephen Strasburg set to begin rehab assignment for Washington Nationals - Call to the Pen - Call to the Pen - A Major League Baseball Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Idealizing a Pablo López Blockbuster

Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports The reigning NL Pitcher of the Month could be a hot commodity come the trade deadline. “The Miami Marlins boast one of the best young rotations in the sport.” It is inarguable and exciting, but ultimately pointless should the team not supplement that with a core of talented position players and competent relievers. Early indications are that the Marlins have not done enough to contend in 2022. In the first in a string of “put up or shut up” years for the Fish, they’re playing sub-.500 baseball. The National League East division...

Why the Cardinals promoted Matthew Liberatore and what it means

Why the St. Louis Cardinals promoted left-hander Matthew Liberatore and what it means for the team moving forward. After Steven Matz walked off the mound at PNC Park with trainers on Sunday, two thoughts immediately popped into my head: 1) how significant is the left shoulder injury? and 2) how will the Cardinals replace him […] Why the Cardinals promoted Matthew Liberatore and what it means - Redbird Rants - Redbird Rants - St Louis Cardinals news, rumors and free agency updates from the insider fans and analysts at Redbird Rants

Assessing the Royals after 40 games

Assessing the Royals after 40 games

Photo by Colin Braley/MLB Photos via It is not pretty. Dayton Moore has often said that the first real judgment of a team comes after 40 games, and after a quarter of this season, the Royals are guilty of playing bad baseball. Here are a few quick notes on the badness: They are tied with the Tigers for the third-worst record in baseball, ahead of only the Reds and Nationals. They have won three series all year. They have been shutout five times already. They have tied with the Pirates for allowing the most first inning runs in baseball with 37. The Royals have been...

Jose Barrero is playing shortstop, again

Cincinnati Enquirer-USA TODAY NE Will he get that shot with the Reds, finally? Jose Barrero is a shortstop. He cut his teeth as a shortstop prior to signing with the Cincinnati Reds out of Cuba for a hefty seven-figure signing bonus. He excelled as a shortstop as he rose through the ranks of the minor leagues, his elite combination of glovework and burgeoning bat earning him praise as the highest ranked prospect in the entire franchise by Baseball America. He even spent the entirety of his last three games in the big leagues at shortstop, doing so in the final series of...

Chad Green’s greatest Yankee moments

Photo by Jim McIsaac/ For the last seven years, it’s been very easy being [Chad] Green. Yesterday afternoon, the Yankees announced that Chad Green will be undergoing Tommy John surgery, confirming what everyone had feared after the right-hander was removed from Thursday night’s game with right forearm tightness. Not only is this a major blow to the Yankees bullpen, as Green was starting to look pretty sharp, it’s also a sad moment for the franchise and the player. Green has been an integral part of this Yankees window, and between his impending free agency and the...

And now...the Braves: Phillies vs. Braves series preview

Matt Olson has not been the upgrade the Braves expected | Photo by Todd Kirkland/ How will the Phillies respond? Your guess is as good as mine Jean Segura and Roman Quinn (with a big assist from Max Muncy) might have saved the Phillies’ season on Sunday. The comeback victory against the Dodgers avoided a disheartening sweep and gave the Phillies some momentum heading into their first matchup of the season against the Atlanta Braves. Did I say momentum? Just kidding! As has been well established, momentum is largely unheard of in baseball, and especially for the...
