Sunday Short Hops - 06/10

Tigers Edition:

The Tigers are becoming regular Sunday night programming for ESPN. Shortly after adding their June 24 game with the Braves, the network announced that it will also carry Detroit's July 1 game vs. the Twins. More Miller and Morgan for all! (via Danny Knobler)

D-Town Baseball takes a look at Mike Rabelo, who now looks to be Detroit's back-up catcher for quite some time, and his season performance thus far.

Our friend Samela asks a question that had to be bugging a lot of you during yesterday's game: What was up with all the seagulls?

Today's Free Press catches up with an old friend returning to town: Damion Easley.

In the Boston Globe, Nick Cafardo passes along the rumors that the Tigers might be looking to deal Mike Maroth.

This evening's Triple-A Toledo game is worth keeping a close on. The starting pitcher for your Mud Hens? Kenny Rogers. He'll be making his first rehab start against the Norfolk Tides. And to be kind, the Orioles' Triple-A affiliate is not good.

And once Rogers rejoins the Tigers, he'll join the largest group of 40-year-olds to ever pitch in Major League Baseball.

Also in that Murray Chass notes column, he continues to thumb his nose at Yankees fans who say their team is better off without Gary Sheffield.

National Edition:

If you're the dude who has the pitching rubber with 56 signatures by pitchers who have thrown a perfect game or no-hitter, Al Leiter wants to talk to you.

Yahoo!'s Jeff Passan takes a look at Scott Boras and the market he's created for his newly professional clients.

Jason Beck notes a particularly baffling loss by the Minnesota Twins (and Johan Santana) yesterday.

Again from the Boston Globe, Nick Cafardo talks to Kenny Williams about trying to fix the damaged White Sox roster.

And if Williams is looking to deal Jermaine Dye, the Dodgers and Padres are interested.
