Orioles' Chris Davis expresses regret over suspension


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/20/2014) Orioles first baseman Chris Davis expressed regret for the 25-game suspension he received for using Adderall without a therapeutic-use exemption, according to MASNsports.com.

"I haven't really talked a lot about it," Davis said during an interview with WRBS-FM, a contemporary Christian music station. "I didn't want to take the focus off what the team was doing, but eventually I knew that I was going to have to address it and I wanted to. I think the fans deserve an explanation. I think they want to know what happened.

"Basically, in a moment of weakness I made a decision that cost me greatly. And it just goes to show that no matter how successful you've been in the past, no matter how much stuff you have, no matter how strong you are in your faith, the devil is going to continue to come after you.

"Looking back on it, it was probably the best thing that could have happened at the time, but it was definitely one of the hardest things that I've ever had to go through.

"I'm at a point right now where I don't wish to ever go through that again, but I appreciate the process and where it has brought me spiritually."

Report: Rockies lean toward keeping Tulowitzki, Gonzalez


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/14/2014) The Rockies are leaning toward standing pat rather than trading stud shortstop Troy Tulowitzki and outfielder Carlos Gonzalez, according to ESPN, which is speculating that despite injuries and contract obligations, both are too talented to be swapped without receiving equal value.

The timing for such a deal could indeed be wrong considering that both lost about half of the 2014 season to injuries.

The 25-year-old Stanton is coming off an incredible season in which he hit .288/.395/.555, with 37 home runs, over 539 at-bats. If he doesn't agree to an extension, Stanton would become a free-agent in 2017.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Wright hit just eight home runs in 134 games last season. He has just 46 home runs and a .452 slugging percentage in 399 games at Citi Field since 2009.

Report: Rockies trading Troy Tulowitzki to Mets is 'not happening'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/11/2014) While there are reports the Mets are talking to the Rockies about a potential trade for shortstop Troy Tulowitzki, sources briefed on the matter told ESPN that a trade is "not happening." Although, the Mets are planning to make a trade in order to upgrade at shortstop.

The Diamondbacks, Mariners, White Sox and Cubs are viewed as four possible trade partners for the Mets. A deal for Tulowitzki is not on the Mets' radar because of the $100 million-plus still owed, as well as the crop of elite prospects the Mets would likely have to deal to Colorado to land Tulowitzki, according to the report.


Report: Mets talking to Rockies about Troy Tulowitzki


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/10/2014) The Mets have talked to the Rockies about a trade involving shortstop Troy Tulowitzki, sources told Yahoo Sports. However, the fear is the Mets can't afford acquiring Tulowitzki, but the two sides are still talking.

CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman confirms the two sides aren't engaged in significant talks at this juncture.

The Mets announced Monday they signed Tulowitzki's former Rockies teammate, Michael Cuddyer. The Mets gave up a 2015 first-round pick to sign Cuddyer, who turned down a one-year qualifying offer from the Rockies.

The oft-injured Tulowitzki played just 91 games in 2014 for the Rockies, but hit .340 with a .630 slugging percentage and 1.035 OPS. He has a career .299/.373/.517/.891 slash line. Although, his career splits at hitter-friendly Coors Field (.323/.565/.962) are much better than his road numbers (.274/.469/.818).
