The 38-year-old ex-outfielder, a member of the Texas Rangers Hall of Fame whose MLB career was derailed by substance-abuse issues, was arrested in October.

Over a 22-year career spent entirely with Detroit, Kaline accumulated 3,007 hits and 399 home runs, and he made the all-star team 18 times.

The Baltimore native made 18 all-star teams and won 10 Gold Glove awards during a 22-year career with the Tigers.


Mike Rizzo celebrated Nats’ home opener by putting the World Series trophy in his window

Under normal circumstances, the trophy would have been on display at Washington's home opener Thursday at Nationals Park.

On a day when hope should spring eternal, Nats’ home opener arrived as a reminder of a void

From a bartender near Nats Park, to the team's radio voice, to its manager, and to the fans, an idyllic day meant for a banner-raising and perfect for baseball instead brought an eerie quiet at the ballpark.

Outside Nationals Park, I saw what you would expect. It still felt deflating.

Home openers are usually for new beginnings. We could have used one.

Among the veteran players who stand to benefit from the union fund are pitcher David Hernandez and infielder Emilio Bonifácio, who were nonroster invitees with the Nationals this spring.

In very blunt comments, the retired player said his World Series-winning team "had to get punished" before its illegal sign-stealing scheme got "even more out of control."

Top orthopedic surgeon James Andrews is not issuing the procedure with medical resources scarce. Meanwhile, pitchers and their teams defend recent decisions to undergo the elbow surgery.

The usually contentious rivals made the best out of a potential worst case.

There is clutch, and then there is Mariano Rivera.

There remains no indication of when the 2020 season, for both the major and minor leagues, can begin.

MLB and the MLBPA came to an agreement on issues raised by the coronavirus pandemic.

Fanatics has halted production of jerseys at its Pennsylvania factory and pivoted to helping combat the spread of the coronavirus.

Here’s a look back at some of the best performances ever on Opening Day, defined here as a team’s first game of the season.

Yankees Manager Aaron Boone said the truncated twin bill, common in the minor leagues and in college baseball, could be part of trying "some things that you wouldn’t otherwise try."

The baseball season encapsulates our capacity for enthusiasm, love, creativity and our currently-trampled innocent joy. Have faith we'll be able to enjoy it again in the not too distant future.

Thursday was to have been about hope springing eternal, and players lined up down the foul lines for pregame introductions. But the return of baseball has been delayed amid the coronavirus outbreak.

New York said Syndergaard, who was looking to bounce back from an uneven 2019 and was expected to help anchor the rotation, experienced discomfort in his elbow before spring training was suspended.

MLB has said league officials “remain committed to playing as many games as possible when the season begins,” but it is still unclear when baseball will return.

Monitors in dugouts are relatively new, but Orioles legend says cheating certainly isn’t.

The hits keep on coming for the 2018 World Series champs, who won't have their best — and highest-paid — pitcher until 2021.

The lessons of the everyday game can buoy spirits among today's bleak circumstances.
