The AL East went 4-1 today as every team in the division won except for the Red Sox. News and notes out of the division..
- Yankees GM Brian Cashman has taken responsibility for the club's rotation woes, but Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com doesn't agree with that assessment. Cashman, he writes, can't be blamed for Michael Pineda's torn labrum or for going with Freddy Garcia, who was consistently effective last year, over Bartolo Colon, who faded in the second half of the season.
- Blue Jays GM Alex Anthopoulos refuted reports that he is actively searching for a starter and a big bat, saying that he has had "zero dialogue" with other GMs, tweets Shi Davidi of Sportsnet. The GM added that the trade market around the league is quite stagnant and he doesn't expect it to really pick up until after the draft, according to Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com (via Twitter).
- Yankees pitcher Freddy Garcia has struggled early on this season while Bartolo Colon has pitched quite well for the A's. Colon told reporters on Friday that even though he is happy in Oakland, he would have liked to remain with the Bombers, writes Ken Davidoff of Newsday.
- The newly-acquired Marlon Byrd has been a pleasant surprise for the Red Sox defensively, writes Brian MacPherson of The Providence Journal.
