4/30/2013 | Today's MLB starting lineups: April 30
Every lineup, every day, as they are made public by the clubs.
4/30/2013 | Defensive game makes a catcher an All-Star
In the All-Star balloting, naturally enough, offensive production takes center stage. But catcher is a defense-first position. The best part of a great defensive catcher's game may defy precise statistical measurement, but that doesn't reduce his impact on the game.
4/30/2013 | Astros flush with cash for Draft

4/30/2013 | Allotment for international signings vital to clubs

4/30/2013 | Streak-snapping win helps soothe frustrated Bochy

4/30/2013 | Slumping early has a pressure all its own
Finding an explanation for early-season struggles a difficult endeavor. Small sample sizes and arbitrary cutoff points on the calendar work to obscure any definitive conclusions.

4/30/2013 | All-Star catchers make a difference with bats
You don't win it all in late October, or contend, without a quality defender -- several quality defenders in most cases -- behind home plate. That applies for 162 games and whatever it takes to decide the World Series. But for one day in mid July, your priority is a man who can drive a ball out of the yard or off a wall serving as your catcher.
4/30/2013 | Mariners roll past O's behind double Saunders act
It was a Saunders kind of night at Safeco Field on Monday as the Mariners opened a three-game set against the Orioles with a 6-2 victory.

4/29/2013 | Hudson, Eaton make progress in rehab work
Right-hander Daniel Hudson (Tommy John surgery) threw two innings of live batting practice and outfielder Adam Eaton (elbow) threw at a distance of 90 feet Monday as the D-backs are cautiously optimistic that each player is on track for a timely return.

4/29/2013 | Mantle's '60 contract to be auctioned for Sandy relief
Mickey Mantle's 1960 contract for $60,000, the original contract painstakingly preserved by Mantle's wife, Merlyn, goes on auction Wednesday as part of an effort by Steiner Sports to raise funds to help victims of Hurricane Sandy. The auction concludes June 2.
