Through 55 plate appearances, most of which occurring while he has been one of those more terrible players in the league, Wells has hit .480/.509/.780 against Buehrle. That's some success.
Of course, Buehrle pitched fairly well in his last appearance, holding the Red Sox to 1 run and 5 hits over 7 innings. He gave up 7 runs to the Rays over 6 innings in the start before that, ultimately putting forth 5 good innings. We're certainly not going to forget about the bad one, of course, but silver lining, I suppose, if we ever feel like getting rid of this contract.
John Lott examines Casey Janssen's approach to pitching. Of course, I already did that, without talking to the guy.
Dustin McGowan will continue his rehab assignment in AAA Buffalo, writes BNS of Sportsnet. McGowan will be used as a reliever, and may very well see some time in the bigs soon.
The Astros are expected to explore an extension for a personal favorite of mine, Jose Altuve. I mention this only because of how much I'd love for AA to try and acquire him from the Astros, if they're willing. I don't expect the Astros to contend for another couple of years, so they might get the use of one good year out of Altuve, so trading him might be a fruitful endeavor, especially since he's still got three years of control left. There's an awful lot of value in a 23 year old 2B with a career .294/.336/.397 batting line, especially when you consider how weak the middle infield market has been over the last few years.
