Pitcher Derrick Turnbow, who played in the 2006 All-Star Game, has been invited to the Texas Rangers camp after battling shoulder problems. Turnbow signed a minor-league deal with the Rangers that includes an invitation to spring training.

He was sent down after his ERA ballooned to 15.63, which didn't...

(Sports Network) - Ben Sheets attempts to follow up CC Sabathia's brilliant performance from Wednesday, while his Milwaukee Brewers try and complete their first-ever four-game sweep of the St. Louis Cardinals tonight at Busch Stadium. Sabathia (4-0) carried a no-hitter into the sixth inning and hurled a three- hit shutout in Milwaukee's 3-0 win last night. The 2007 American League Cy Young Award winner, who struck out seven with two walks, has been everything...

By Tracy Ringolsby The Rockies wanted to crash the party. They were not capable. Left-hander CC Sabathia was ordinary in his hyped-up Milwaukee debut Tuesday night. That was good enough to help deliver the Brewers a 7-3 victory to the delight of a sellout crowd of 42,533 at Miller Park. Sabathia's addition is being compared with the August 1982 acquisition of Don Sutton that eventually helped lift the Brewers into the World Series, which was the last time the Brewers played a...

Milwaukee, WI (Sports Network) - CC Sabathia threw six effective innings to earn the victory in his Brewers debut, and Ryan Braun helped him with a three- run homer to lead Milwaukee over the Colorado Rockies, 7-3, at Miller Park. "He pitched very well," said Milwaukee manager Ned Yost. "Something like this adds more to the game than we are accustomed to in the middle of the season." Sabathia (1-0), who was acquired from the Indians for minor league prospects on Monday, yielded...

By Tom Haudricourt, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Jul. 9--As CC Sabathia walked off the mound after the top of the sixth inning Tuesday night, his emotions finally won the battle he had been waging all night. The Milwaukee Brewers' prized acquisition emitted a primal scream. "That was just letting out everything from the last couple of days," said Sabathia, whose debut was one of the biggest sporting events this city has seen in many a year. "It was just a release." And no one deserved...
