7/22/2014 | Price may stick with eight-man bullpen
The Reds have been operating with 13 pitchers, eight of them relievers, and playing a man short on the bench for nearly two weeks.

Rangers reliever Joakim Soria's contract contains a partial no-trade clause that lists a number of teams to which he can't be traded by Texas.

7/22/2014 | Padres-Yankees trade benefits both sides
Good trades benefit both teams. A trade should not be judged on a "winner" or "loser" basis. If a trade benefits the clubs involved, it's a good deal. That's my impression of the transaction that sent veteran third baseman Chase Headley from the Padres to the Yankees for prospect Rafael De Paula and infielder Yangervis Solarte.

7/22/2014 | Yanks buy low on Headley, but will bat recover?
Once the face of the Padres, Chase Headley was sent to the Yankees for much smaller return than he once could have landed for the Friars. And while the Yankees hope his offensive levels return to its prior form, his glove will play at New York's hot corner.
