Less than a month after acquiring 37-year-old shortstop Alex Gonzalez from the Baltimore Orioles for Steve Lombardozzi, the Tigers released him on Sunday. After a walk-off hit on Opening Day, Gonzalez slumped to a .167 average with...

Just when Milwaukee's road trip couldn't seem to get any longer, shortstop Alex Gonzalez slid into second base, turning his knee awkwardly Saturday in San Francisco. He rolled over, writhing in pain at the base and the Brewers promptly put Gonzalez on the 15-day DL.
