Josh Johnson Adjusts Repertoire With Blue Jays - RealGM Wiretap
Josh Johnson wasn't happy with his performance in 2012 and has adjusted his repertoire entering his first year with the Blue Jays.
He experienced a drop in velocity last year Cheap Jerseys , which prompted a change in the way he approached hitters.
"I learned how to pitch," he said. "Sometimes I could get by with just throwing, blowing it by guys. Now I locate a lot better or slow him down to get the ball by him and miss bats."
Johnson threw a curveball when he was drafted by Miami in 2004, but the pitch was scrapped within a couple of years. He has reintroduced the pitch.
Rockies Wont Revive Interest In Ervin Santana - RealGM Wiretap
The Colorado Rockies are not interested in Ervin Santana, according to a club official.
CBS Sports reported that Colorado was "the latest team to check in" on Santana.
The Rockies are awaiting MRI results on the right-shoulder of Jhoulys Chacin, which sparked rumors.
30 Team MLB Scoop May 15th Edition - RealGM Wiretap The National League The Kevin Towers Jesse Sanchez of MLB: "Second-year first baseman Paul Goldschmidt returned to the starting lineup Sunday after a day off and remains a work in progress at the plate. Goldschmidt, who entered the game hitting .237 with two home runs and 15 RBIs, has been fine-tuning his mechanics with hitting drills on a tee this week. He said his confidence is not one of the problems." The Frank Wren David O'Brien of Atlanta Journal-Constitution: "The good news is that no player has been more durable this season than Michael Bourn Wholesale Jerseys Cheap , no NL leadoff hitter has had more of an overall impact on his team, and arguably no center fielder has played better defense." The Jed Hoyer Gordon Wittenmyer of Chicago Sun-Times: "Pretty impressive how the Cubs' new front office and field staff took a long first look at Jeff Samardzija and turned him into one of the best starting pitchers in the National League." The Walt Jocketty Meggie Zahneis of MLB: "The 25,000 fans who walked away from Saturday's Nationals vs. Reds matchup did so with a one-of-a-kind souvenir tucked under their arms. It's a Joey Votto bobblehead commemorating the first baseman's 2011 Gold Glove Award. Those same fans may wonder where their collectible came from." The Dan O'Dowd Patrick Saunders of Denver Post: "Considering left-hander Jorge De La Rosa is being counted on to stabilize the Rockies' reeling rotation, news that he was removed after just one inning during a rehab start Saturday night at Double-A Tulsa sounded ominous." The Michael Hill John C. Rodriguez of South Florida Sun-Sentinel: "Had he needed to sprint out of the box, unsure whether cavernous Marlins Park would hold it, Giancarlo Stanton still would have relished the walk-off grand slam. That wasn't the case though." The Jeff Luhnow Zachary Levine of Houston Chronicle: "The Astros were irked about a couple of check-swing calls that didn't go their way in the late innings of Sunday's 3-2 loss to the Pirates. Brett Myers didn't get a third-strike swing call he wanted on ball four to Jose Tabata leading off the ninth, and Tabata would score the tying run for Myers' first blown save of the season." The Ned Colletti Eric Stephen of True Blue L.A.: "The Dodgers look to continue their home success Monday night as they open a quick two-game series against the Arizona Diamondbacks. The Dodgers have swept four of their six opponents at home this year, which has led to a 15-3 record at Dodger Stadium." The Doug Melvin Todd Rosiak of Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel: "It was a crazy weekend to say the least for Milwaukee Brewers closer John Axford. To recap: Axford saw his streak of 49 consecutive games saved snapped in the Brewers' 13-inning win over the Chicago Cubs on Friday night; learned his wife Wholesale NFL Jerseys , Nicole, was going into premature labor shortly thereafter; and then left the media a note on the chair in his locker explaining the situation, a move that became a story in itself on the Internet." The Sandy Alderson Chris McShane of Amazin Mets: "As you may have heard, the Mets' bullpen did not have a good weekend. Frank Francisco, the highest paid pitcher of the bunch, has not only failed to live up to expectations but has been downright awful. As a group, the Mets' bullpen's 5.01 ERA is the third-worst rate in the National League after blowing late leads in two of three games against the rival Miami Marlins." The Ruben Amaro Jr. Kieran Carobine of Phillies Nation: "Cole Hamels finished off the week with his fifth win in a row and leads the Phillies staff with those five wins. Hamels is the third guy in a rotation behind Roy Halladay and Cliff Lee, but its the lefty thats been confusing hitters all season." The Neal Huntington Al Yellon of SB Nation: "I'm about as traditional a baseball fan as there can be. I like old-fashioned stirrups on uniforms Wholesale Jerseys , don't care for weird-colored alternate jerseys, and love the history and tradition of the classic ballparks, Fenway Park and Wrigley Field. In a perfect world, I'd love to still see 81 day games every year at Wrigley (yes, I know in real life that's not feasible), and pitchers not yanked automatically after 100 pitches. And until recently, having grown up a National League fan, I was pretty dead-set against the designated hitter coming to the NL." The John Mozeliak Viva El Birdos: "Earlier today Cheap Jerseys Wholesale , the St. Louis Cardinals announced that they had unconditionally released veteran left-handed reliever J.C. Romero. Taking Romero's spot in the bullpen will be right-hander Eduardo Sanchez, who has apparently showed enough improvement with his mechanics and control in in the eyes of the front office to merit the promotion. The release of Romero and promotion of Sanchez means only one southpaw remains in the Cardinals bullpen. With only a single lefty remaining in the bullpen, who will fact
