Sat Apr 2103:49LEADING OFF: White Sox check Farquhar, Ohtani's blister
A look at what's happening around the majors today:___CHECK HIMThe White Sox will see how Danny Farquhar is feeling, a day after he passed out in the dugout during a home game against Houston. The 31-year-old Farquhar recorded the last two outs of the sixth when he fell ill. He was treated by team medical personnel and on-site EMTs. The White Sox said he regained consciousness before he was taken to a hospital by ambulance for further testing.WE'LL SEEAngels manager Mike Scioscia isn't sure if the seams on big league baseballs are what caused the blister on Shohei Ohtani's right middle finger that forced the Japanese two-way sensation out after just two innings Tuesday night against Boston in his third major league pitching start."He worked very hard getting used our baseball starting last winter," Scioscia said. "Blisters ... come and go with pitchers occasionally at some point. Exactly when they crop up with some guys is a mystery. There are probably a lot of things that came into pl... [More]
Fri Apr 2021:59LEADING OFF: Darvish, Keuchel, Colon all go for 1st win
A look at what's happening around the majors Saturday:___STILL WAITINGThe Chicago Cubs are hoping Yu Darvish can begin to show his All-Star form sometime soon. Signed to a $126 million, six-year deal as a free agent, he is 0-1 with a 6.00 ERA in three starts. Darvish got rankled after a balk call in his last outing against Atlanta. He'll try to get on track when he pitches for the first time at Coors Field vs. Charlie Blackmon and the Rockies.ANY TAKERSPitcher A.J. Cole is available after being designated for assignment by Washington. Once a prized pitcher, he began the season in the Nationals' rotation. But the 26-year-old righty had trouble, was sent to the bullpen and now is headed to the waiver wire. Cole was 1-1 with a 13.06 ERA, giving up six home runs in only 10 1/3 innings during two starts and two relief appearances. The 6-foot-5 Cole pitched in parts of four seasons for Washington. He gave up a grand slam to Yoenis Cespedes of the Mets in his last outing.BART'S BACKBartolo Co... [More]
