Happy Jackie Robinson Day!

Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

Bad news for the Tigers, as Justin Verlander's simulated game was cut short.

Some of the efforts to thank Jackie Robinson are just plain tacky.

Despite a line drive to the face, Carlos Carrasco will not miss a start, only being pushed back one day.

The Rockies have named Adam Ottavino their new closer. Where will the next closer controversy strike? My bets are on Seattle.

This morning, Chris Mitchell put an article on Fangraphs telling us to curb our enthusiasm about Mark Canha.

The A's won't be seeing Alex Rios this weekend, as he has been placed on the disabled list with a broken hand.

Tonight's minor league action includes Barry Zito on the hill for Nashville and the Ports playing a doubleheader in Lancaster, as last night's game was postponed due to wind.

On this day a year ago, the A's won a 10-9 thriller in 11 innings at Angel Stadium.

Tonight's starting lineup includes Eric Sogard, as Ben Zobrist gets the night off.
