Even Mr. Hyde couldn't stop the Marlins from losing again.

On Sunday the Florida Marlins named Brandon Hyde as their interim manager.  He took the place of Edwin Rodriguez who resigned.  Unfortunately, the Marlins losing streak continued as they lost to the Tampa Bay Rays 2-1 to extend their losing streak to 10 games.  They are now 1-18 in June.  Tampa SP James Shields threw his 2nd straight CG, and his major league leading 5th this season.  He allowed a run on 4 hits with 0 walks & 10 Ks.  Adding to the story on Sunday night the Marlins named Jack McKeon the new manager.  He was the skipper the last time the Marlins won the World Series.  He may have also been the skipper the last time the Cubs won a World Series.  Him or Charlie Manuel I guess.

If you’re too lazy to read all the news you can skip to the end of the article and watch Brian Collins’ summary video.

Simply known as THE DIVE..unfortunately MLB forbids videos of their highlights on Youtube or something, this video is something else.

Yankees SS Derek Jeter was placed on the 15 day DL with a strained calf. He currently stands at 2,994 career hits, needing 6 to hit 3,000. The Yankees won the first game he spent on the shelf 12-4 over the Rangers. They handed Texas SP Alexi Ogando his first loss of the season, he’s now 7-1. He only lasted 1 2/3 innings and gave up 6 runs on 6 hits. Yankee OF Curtis Granderson went 2-4 with his 21st homer tying Joey Bats for the Major League lead.

INJURY NEWS

A’s SP Brett Anderson actually received GOOD news from his visit to world renown Dr. James Andrews.  No Tommy John surgery is needed, just 6 weeks of rehab.

Yankees C Russell Martin missed another game with back stiffness.

Twins 1B Justin Morneau remained out with his wrist problem.

Braves rookie 1B Freddie Freeman missed Tuesday night’s game with an oblique strain.

Not sure if he suffered the injury on this play or not

Giants 3B Pablo Sandoval is off to a great start this season, after having a rough 2nd year in the bigs. Unfortunately he’s out at least 4-6 weeks after suffering a fractured hamate bone. That’s the same injury that’s kept Phillies prospect Dominic Brown sidelined all season.

In more positive injury news, Rays 3B Evan Longoria is hoping to return to the lineup on Tuesday.

Brewers SP Zack Grienke is targeting May 4th for his return.

Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez and Indians OF Grady Sizemore both received Saturday off as a rest day.

Indians DH Travis Hafner sat out on Saturday again with an ankle injury.  That’s the 3rd straight game Pronk has missed.

Cardinals skipper Tony La Russa has relegated RP Ryan Franklin to long relief for the near future, leaving him as useless for fantasy purposes as rehab is for Lindsay Lohan.

Red Sox 3B Kevin Youkilis left Saturday’s game after injuring the same hip you read about on FB2K on Thursday night.

Pirates OF Jose Tabata left the game in the first inning with hamstring tightness.  I’m sure running away from his crazy wife/gf doesn’t help.

No one looks forward to going up against Doc Halladay

Phillies SP Roy Hallday came within an out of another CG on Sunday. He went 8 2/3 innings giving up 5 hits, 1 run, 1 walk and a career high 14 strikeouts in their 4 game sweep of the Padres. Closer Jose Contreras was placed on the disabled list, so it looks like Ryan Madson is the closer in Philly for now. So even though Charlie Manuel was teammates with Babe Ruth, that doesn’t mean you can trust the guy.
