Ubaldo Jimenez pitched two perfect innings in his debut with the Baltimore Orioles in their 15-4 win over the Philadelphia Phillies on Friday.
A.J. Burnett started against his former Pittsburgh teammates, giving up one run in two innings Sunday as the Pirates beat the Philadelphia Phillies 4-1.
Although the Pittsburgh Pirates were not major players in the free-agent and trade markets this winter, owner Bob Nutting is optimistic the team can build on last year's success.
A.J. Burnett and the Philadelphia Phillies have completed a contract that guarantees the pitcher $15 million for 2014 and $22.5 million over two seasons.
The Pittsburgh Pirates are not the only team that's proud of its pitching.
A team-by-team look at the National League Central entering spring training, including key players each club acquired and lost, and dates of the first workout for pitchers and catchers, and the full squad:
Shortly after news broke that Cole Hamels will not be ready for Opening Day, the Phillies reached agreement on a one-year, $16 million deal with free agent A.J. Burnett.
On the day Cole Hamels announced he won't be ready for the season opener, the Philadelphia Phillies helped their ailing starting rotation.
The Phillies are interested in veteran starter A.J. Burnett, and according to Todd Zolecki of MLB.com, are "very much still in the running" for his services.
Could the Nationals sign A.J. Burnett? A new report draws the connection.
The Baltimore Orioles still have some work to do before the start of spring training, and the first order of business appears to be adding a proven starting pitcher.
After a stunning run to the playoffs in 2013, Pittsburgh hopes to make it back to October behind a talented, young corps of rising stars.
The Yankees talked frugality, then reverted to their high-spending ways.
In addition to the deal with the 25-year-old right-hander, the Yankees must pay a $20 million fee to his Japanese team, the Rakuten Golden Eagles.
As the 2013 Winter Meetings move through their second day, it seems like a good time to revisit the rankings HardballTalk put out in early November.
"You've got to progress, find the positives and work from there. Our record doesn't reflect on our attitude and our thinking," Burnett said.
"I felt like I put myself in good positions. I put myself in decent positions to put guys away," Burnett said.
