The Boston Herald says that the Red Sox, looking to get some “buy-low” starting pitching, have called Freddy Garcia’s agent.
I would presume that the Yankees have at least some degree of interest in bringing Garcia back given that he was pretty darn useful last year. Which makes one wonder if you can really “buy-low” on a commodity that both the Red Sox and the Yankees both seem to want.
Neither the Pirates nor the Tigers could manage any offense during Thursday afternoon’s game at PNC Park. That is, until outfielder Corey Dickerson launched a walk-off solo home run off of Alex Wilson with one out in the bottom of the ninth inning.
Dickerson, 28, has been solid for the Pirates for the first month of the season. He’s batting .314/.348/.500 with a pair of home runs, 13 RBI, and 13 runs scored in 92 plate appearances. The Pirates acquired him from the Rays in late February in exchange for journeyman pitcher Daniel Hudson and Single-A infielder Tristan Gray.
