Rumor Roundup: Veteran Help Wanted

Daniel Rathman

The Orioles are after Carlos Beltran, and the Twins want to sign a starter.

Carlos Beltran on Orioles’ Radar
We knew the Red Sox and Yankees were among the teams vying for the services of one of the best active postseason hitters. Now it appears we can add a third American League East team to the mix.

So many pitchers go bad that it sometimes feels like every pitcher contract is a toxic asset. But, particularly for pitchers at a certain talent level, the better metaphor might be a house: there are years when it’s worth a lot, and years when it’s not worth much, but the only day that really matters is the day you sell.

Matt Garza returns, former future-closer Eduardo Sanchez gets claimed, and the Rangers call up a pitcher who, you'll eventually figure out while reading box scores, is not Randy Wolf.

Overthinking It: The No-Hitters That Almost Weren't

7

Ben Lindbergh

Philip Humber's perfect game ended with a controversial call, but close plays to preserve no-hitters are the norm, not the exception.

Since the start of the 2009 season, 12 nine-inning no-hitters have been pitched. Over the same span, 24 nine-inning one-hitters have been pitched. The former will be remembered. The latter will not, except by Anibal Sanchez, who threw three of them. (Don’t feel too bad for Anibal Sanchez, since he already had a no-hitter. Anibal Sanchez: pretty good at pitching.)

The difference between a no-hitter and a one-hitter is—wait for it—one hit. But it’s too simple to say that, really. A hit can be a long home run or a hard line drive that lands somewhere on the field. It can also be an infield dribbler, a well-placed pop-up, or a routine fly that would have been caught by literally anyone but Raul Ibanez. This is a hit:

On teaching patience, a nice old lady and a hilarious inning to a near-gem.

CHICAGO—One-four-four-five-four-one. No, that's not a Tommy Tutone update, it's the game-by-game run totals for the Cubs in their first six outings of the season. They broke out with eight runs off Milwaukee ace Zack Greinke on Thursday, but questions still abound about Chicago's offense.

BP Unfiltered: Grading Garza

2

R.J. Anderson

Matt Garza has suffered from a high BABIP this season, but has it been his own doing, or a combination of bad luck and bad defense?

Matt Garza has the fifth-most strikeouts in baseball through three starts, with 25. Only Cliff Lee has more among pitchers with three or fewer starts. Armed with that information alone, it would seem that Garza’s introduction to the Windy City has gone smoothly. Reality is cruel, though: Garza has suffered two defeats, an earned run average of 6.27, and only one quality start despite averaging six-plus innings per outing.
