  Dusty Baker explains his ballsy decision with Zack Greinke in Game 4 The Astros beat the Rays 4-3 in Game 4 of the ALCS on Wednesday to extend the series. A big turning point came when Astros manager Dusty Baker made a bold call to let Zack Greinke pitch his way out of a sixth inning jam. © Robert Hanashiro-USA TODAY Sports Houston was leading 4-2 in the top of the sixth. Greinke got the first batter to ground out, and then Manuel Margot reached on a weak infield single. Austin Meadows followed with a line drive single, putting runners on first and second with one out. Randy Arozarena, who had a 2-run home run in the fourth, was coming up next.

Mariners right -hander Mike Morin has cleared waivers and been outrighted to Triple-A Tacoma, the club’s PR department has announced. Morin had been designated for assignment by Seattle on Thursday. Morin ’s been an above-average reliever throughout the course of his career in terms of

Morin ’s acquisition was the second move this week by the front office to add pitching at no cost. The Phillies signed veteran lefthander Drew Smyly on Friday and will start him Sunday. He is an abnormal reliever for the Phillies. And that could be OK because of an abnormal pitch .

The Marlins have reinstated pitchers Pat Venditte, Mike Morin and Josh A. Smith from the 60-day injured list and outrighted the trio to Triple-A, leaving the club with a 40-man roster, per Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald. All three are expected to elect free agency, according to McPherson.

Because of a team-wide coronavirus outbreak early in the season, the Marlins had to scramble to assemble a bullpen, which helps explain why their relievers posted the majors’ fifth-worst ERA (5.50). Venditte and Morin were not part of the problem, however, albeit over a small number of innings.

Trevor Bauer changes stance on signing only one-year deals

  Trevor Bauer changes stance on signing only one-year deals Trevor Bauer has taken an unorthodox approach to his impending free agency, but it appears his latest move is a bit more traditional. © David Kohl-USA TODAY Sports Trevor Bauer apparently is willing to sign a multiyear deal. Bauer has said in the past that he only wants to sign one-year deals for the rest of his career. He believed this approach would ensure him flexibility and leverage as well as the opportunity to pitch for a contender.With Bauer about to hit free agency, however, he seems to be changing his stance.

The club claimed right -hander Mike Morin off waivers from the Brewers on Tuesday. Right -hander Justin Shafer and lefty Josh D. Smith were claimed off waivers from the Reds on Monday. The extra relievers join the organization as all of the Marlins ' games through Sunday have been postponed.

The ambidextrous Venditte gave the Marlins 4 1/3 frames of one-run ball (unearned), allowed one hit, didn’t walk a batter and struck out 10. Morin was similarly effective, as he threw four scoreless innings with one hit and one walk, though he only posted two strikeouts.

On the other hand, Smith (not to be confused with Josh D. Smith, who was also a Marlins reliever in 2020) had immense difficulty keeping runs off the board. The right-hander recorded an ugly 6.84 ERA (with a more encouraging 4.67 FIP) and 6.15 K/9 against 3.76 BB/9 across 26 1/3 innings.

Astros place closer Roberto Osuna on waivers .
It’s a dramatic fall for the 2017 All-Star selection and 2019 AL saves leader. The Astros acquired him at the MLB trade deadline in 2018, landing him at a discount after he served a 75-game suspension for allegedly assaulting a woman in Canada.During his first full season with the Astros, Osuna recorded 38 saves with a 0.87 WHIP, 2.63 ERA and 73 strikeouts across 65 innings. When the postseason rolled around, he was a disaster.It’s still likely that Osuna will eventually undergo Tommy John surgery given the low success rate of pitchers taking the rehab route for UCL injuries.
