Taking part in batting practice is simply a part of an NL pitcher's routine. In the case of Marlins right-hander Jacob Turner, it will cost him a game.
As soon as he got a close look at Gio Gonzalez in spring training, new Washington Nationals catcher Jose Lobaton knew he was going to encourage the left-hander to throw more changeups.
With a mad (and hilarious) dash around the bases, Gio Gonzalez provided the highlight moment of the Nationals' 5-1 win in New York.
No quiet acquittal can undo the damage from the left-hander's name being dragged through the scandal's sludge of human-growth hormone and pink cream and injections by self-proclaimed doctor Anthony Bosch.
Facing prized New York Mets prospect Zack Wheeler, the Nationals pounded the Mets with 13 hits — 10 of which went for extra-bases — as every starting position player in the lineup had at least one hit and drove in at least one run.
Ross Detwiler turned in a superb four-inning relief outing Saturday night to help Team USA beat Italy in the first round of the World Baseball Classic. "It's a dream come true to play for your country," he said.
Caution over rules for the World Baseball Classic limited Gio Gonzalez to 42 pitches Thursday afternoon in his final Washington Nationals start before joining Team USA.
Haren, 32, says he isn't coming in with the intent of being anyone's mentor. But that figures to happen anyway, even if he never says a word. With as much experience as the others combined, he can likely help the Nats as much off the mound as he can on it.
With 40 percent of their starting rotation now committed to Team USA, the Nationals' attention to the tournament has become much more personal.
Gonzalez has twice been brought up unprompted by manager Davey Johnson as one of the pitchers who has impressed most early. That's good news for the Nationals, who will lose him to Team USA after his third start of the spring.
Gio Gonzalez arrived at spring training with the Washington Nationals on Tuesday and maintained he has not used performance-enhancing drugs.
Washington Nationals pitcher Gio Gonzalez says he has cooperated with a Major League Baseball investigation surrounding a Miami clinic where his name was reported to have shown up in records for performance-enhancing drugs.
Major League Baseball said it is "extremely disappointed" about new allegations of performance-enhancing drug use against Alex Rodriguez and other players contained in a newspaper report.
Drug scandals have become even more prevalent in recent years and it is enough to make a cynic wonder about any significant athletic feat: clean or not clean?
A detailed account from the Miami New Times listed Gonzalez among several star baseball players and other athletes linked to a Miami clinic called Biogenesis run by Anthony Bosch. The report, which was based on records obtained from the clinic as well as interviews with customers and former employees, was headlined by the inclusion of New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez.
