    LEADING OFF: Royals all set to watch eclipse on day off

    A look at what's happening all around the majors today: TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE PARK The Kansas City Royals are off, and several of them already have big plans for their day away from Kauffman Stadium — they're going to watch the eclipse. Manager Ned Yost says he has the special glasses to see it, along with the app for his iPad to track the phenomenon. Pitcher Jason Hammel is going to watch from his backyard in the suburb of Overland Park, Kansas, where he says "there's something like 99.2 percent totality. That's good enough for me. I can deal with missing the 0.8 percent." Reliever Peter Moylan has a friend from back home in Australia flying to the United States and they're going to watch it

    Blue Jays officially release J.P. Howell

    Quietly, the Blue Jays officially released J.P. Howell last night, our very own Minor Leaguer reports. Howell was designated for assignment on August 16th. Howell, in a tumultuous few months with Toronto, pitched in only 16 games and 11.0 innings. He posted a 7.36 ERA (6.32 FIP) and 0.86 strikeout-to-walk ratio while struggling with multiple injuries. Howell missed two months with an undisclosed shoulder injury and was activated off of the disabled list on July 31st. He was signed to a one-year deal worth $3 million in the offseason.

    Twins' Bartolo Colon becomes the 18th pitcher in history to beat all 30 MLB teams

    On Sunday, Twins right-hander Bartolo Colon didn't exactly dominate the Diamondbacks -- four earned in six innings -- but he pitched well enough to pick up the win. Speaking of which ...  Yep, Colon has now defeated every team in the league, and he's just the 18th pitcher ever to achieve that feat. It's certainly taken him a while, as the now-44-year-old Colon notched his first big-league win way back yonder on June 7, 1997 (against the Red Sox). The Diamondbacks didn't even play their first MLB until 1998. Colon's win over Arizona on Sunday was the 238th of his career. Here's how those break down:  Texas Rangers: 21 Seattle Mariners: 20 Kansas City Royals: 15 Baltimore Orioles: 13 Los Angeles
