The Cubs and Tigers are "down the road" on a trade that would send Matt Garza to Detroit for a package of prospects, CSNChicago.com's David Kaplan is reporting.
Former Tigers and Twins starter Jack Morris was a very good pitcher, but not one worthy of induction into the Hall of Fame. One argument that's been used in his favor -- "pitching to the score" -- is completely bunk.
Tim Raines garnered 12 percent more votes in 2012's Hall of Fame voting results, and it's looking more and more likely that the former Sox outfielder will be inducted at some point.
Former White Sox infielder Mark Teahen was designated for assignment by Toronto on Monday to make room for reliever Darren Oliver on the team's 40-man roster.
Tim Raines doesn't project as a Hall of Famer -- at least not yet -- while Mark Buehrle won't be able to live in Miami-Dade County and Yoenis Cespedes is set to hit free agency soon.
The Hall of Fame's class of 2012 will be announced Monday. Will the most deserving candidate -- former White Sox outfielder Tim Raines -- finally make it in?
The White Sox have already been linked to Yoenis Cespedes and more details have come out regarding the Cuban outfielder's status.
Earlier this week, Baseball America looked at the players the White Sox received from Toronto in the Jason Frasor deal, noting both have at least a little bit of upside.
In 128 plate appearances in the Dominican Winter League, Alejandro De Aza hit .198.313.306, although that's not something about which to be concerned.
