Good morning baseball fans!
Seattle suspended Steve Clevenger on Friday afternoon as a result of his Twitter posts:
Moreover, the Mariners’ discipline here is hardly a brave stand given that suspending Clevenger does nothing to hurt the M’s chances of winning an American League Wild Card. It’s convenient and it removes a distraction without costing them anything.
Starling Marte left Pittsburgh’s Thursday night contest with back tightness, the club announced.
Even though Alex Bregman ran Thursday, he is still expected to miss the remainder of the season with the Astros.
This is pretty good news for the Rangers:
Jeremy Jeffress has been officially reinstated. He will not dress out tonight. He will work on throwing program over next week.— Evan Grant (@Evan_P_Grant) September 23, 2016
The Pirates are attempting to re-sign Ivan Nova:
Ivan Nova's agent Greg Genske: "The (Pirates have) extended multiple offers and while there is mutual interest ... no agreement is imminent”— Travis Sawchik (@Sawchik_Trib) September 23, 2016
Minnesota has one less name to choose from:
#Mets assistant GM John Ricco is no longer in the mix for #Twins president of baseball operations job, source says.— Jerry Crasnick (@jcrasnick) September 22, 2016
Wang is out in Kansas City:
#Royals request unconditional release waivers on Chien-Ming Wang. Just procedural. He was DFAd on Sept. 17— Jeffrey Flanagan (@FlannyMLB) September 22, 2016
No Tanaka is pretty bad news for the Yankees:
Tanaka won't start Monday. Slight strain in flexor mass, but not near ligament. Won't throw for five days.— Mark Feinsand (@FeinsandNYDN) September 22, 2016
Matz’s season with the Mets seems to be over:
Alderson told me with Matz "surgery not indicated," but "give fact so few games left" unlikely start this year #Mets— Joel Sherman (@Joelsherman1) September 22, 2016
