Mastering the art of resiliency, Baltimore Orioles left-hander Johan Santana will continue his road back to big leagues on Thursday, as the 35-year old is scheduled to throw a bullpen session at the team's minor league complex in Sarasota, Florida.
According to Alex Pavlovic of the San Jose Mercury News, Dodgers
Brian Wilson has been activated from the 15-day disabled list. In a
corresponding move, Los Angeles will send left handed specialist Paco Rodriguez
The game between the Baltimore Orioles and the Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday
was postponed due to inclement weather. Normally a postponement isn't
at top of a team's want list. In the case of the Orioles where the flu
has been sweeping through their clubhouse, an extra day off isn't a bad
thing particularly when star outfielder Adam Jones and reliever Evan Meek were send home due to illness.
New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony underwent an MRI on Tuesday to determine the severity of the injury in his right shoulder. According to Al Iannazzone on Twitter, Anthony has a small tear in his right labrum, but will not require surgery. He will be re-evaluated next month.
The Seattle Mariners are getting closer and closer to having their #2 starter back in the rotation. Hisashi Iwakuma threw 55 pitches in a Tuesday bullpen session, and he will pitch a simulated game at the end of the week. The confusion, though, is about which day that game will occur. Two Mariners beat writers, Greg Johns of MLB.com and Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle, tweeted about Iwakuma's progress but have noted different dates for the simulation.
After sitting out both weekend games with the Boston Red Sox and having an off day Monday, New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter would very likely have played again Tuesday night against the Chicago Cubs had the rain not forced a postponement. MLB.com's Yankees beat writer Bryan Hoch announced Sunday via Twitter that manager Joe Girardi felt "really good" about playing his captain Tuesday night.
An MRI revealed the 24-year-old tore the peroneus longs tendon in his right foot in a loss to the Los Angeles Clippers last week.
Mike Trudell, beat reporter for Lakers.com reported the surgery, and that the timetable for Bazemore's return depends on the outcome of his surgery.
Bazemore averaged just two points in 4.4 minutes in 61 games with the Warriors last season, and only 2.3 points in 6.1 minutes in the 44 games he played with the Warriors this season. With the Lakers, however, he averaged 13.6 points and 3.4 rebounds in 28.7 minutes.
