Jacob StallingsFree Agent
PITTSBURGH (AP) — The Pittsburgh Pirates have put veteran catcher Francisco Cervelli on the seven-day concussion disabled list.The Pirates made the move Friday night just before the start of their game with the Arizona Diamondbacks. Rookie catcher Jacob Stallings was recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis.Cervelli left the June 9 game against the Cubs at Chicago in the fourth inning after being struck on the helmet and left of his jaw by a foul tip off the bat of Jason Heyward. Cervelli passed the concussion protocol and played in six more games, but began feeling symptoms Thursday night late in the Pirates' 9-3 loss to the Diamondbacks.An 11-year veteran, Cervelli has already hit a career-high nine home runs this season, with 36 RBIs in 55 games while batting .247. His previous high for homers was seven in 2015, his first season with Pittsburgh after spending seven years with the New York Yankees.Stallings played in five games with the Pirates earlier this month and went 5 for 14 (.357).
Fri Jun 2218:59Servais: Who was that mustachioed man?Ichiro SuzukiRF/LFYankeesFree Agent
BOSTON (AP) — Seattle manager Scott Servais kept up the ruse on Friday night, denying that he saw Ichiro Suzuki in disguise in the Mariners dugout at Yankee Stadium.And he mostly kept a straight face as he said it.In a performance almost as transparent as the fake mustache and hoodie the former outfielder wore when he crashed the team's bench, Servais said before Friday night's game against the Red Sox, "I've got to keep a closer eye on my dugout.""Mustaches? I don't know anybody that's got a mustache," Servais told chuckling reporters at Fenway Park a day after Suzuki was caught by an Associated Press photographer where he wasn't supposed to be. "I don't know who that is, but will definitely keep an eye out today."Suzuki, who is now in the Mariners front office, stretched with the team on Friday night and took batting practice before the series opener against the Red Sox. According to Major League Baseball rules, he isn't allowed to be in the dugout during games.The 44-year-old outf... [More]

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Brett Gardner is back in the New York Yankees' lineup after missing five games because of soreness in his right knee.The left fielder was the leadoff hitter for Friday night's game at Tampa Bay."He's been anxious to get back the last couple of days," Yankees manager Aaron Boone said. "Kind of our igniter, our heartbeat to a degree."The Yankees also got good news regarding right-hander Masahiro Tanaka, who went on the 10-day disabled list June 9 with a strain in both his right and left hamstrings.Tanaka did long toss and threw at 60 feet on level ground Friday, and is set for his first bullpen session Sunday. If things go well, Tanaka would have another mound session Tuesday at the Yankees' spring training complex in Tampa and take part in a simulated game later in the week."Another step along the way," Boone said. "He's progressing well."Gardner entered Friday hitting .258 with five homers, 21 RBIs and 42 runs scored in 59 games.Giancarlo Stanton started i... [More]

PLAYERS TO PICK UPDOMINGO GERMAN, SP, New York Yankees (41 percent owned in Yahoo) - It's looking like the Yankees have found something in German. The surface stats (4.77 ERA) don't pop out, but his underlying numbers show he's performing better than the stats. He's generating a lot of swing-and-misses, and he has a great offense backing him up.FREDDY PERALTA, SP, Milwaukee Brewers (25 percent) - Peralta got the call earlier this week, and he looks to remain in the Milwaukee rotation for the foreseeable future as the group lacks talent. He relies on his fastball a lot, so he's going to have to start mixing in some secondary pitches to continue his success. He should be considered a SP5.SHELBY MILLER, SP, Arizona Diamondbacks (6 percent) - Miller is coming off Tommy John surgery right into a two-start week. He's a risky play next week, but he's worth the stash to see if he can put it together in the pitcher-friendly environment as a backend starter.KEVIN KIERMAIER, OF, Tampa Bay Rays (2... [More]

"What he's doing is special," Philadelphia manager Gabe Kapler said. "It's elite." Herrera is batting .419 (13 for 31) with two doubles, five homers and eight RBIs in the last seven games. Seven of his 12 homers have given the Phillies a lead. "He's a different breed," pitcher Jake Arrieta said.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — San Francisco Giants closer Hunter Strickland apologized to his team, fans, and said he'd consider anger management counseling three days after injuring his hand punching a door in frustration after a blown save against Miami.Strickland is expected to be out six to eight weeks after breaking the pinkie on his pitching hand Monday. Sam Dyson and Tony Watson will be called upon for closing duties.Strickland has had several outbursts on a national stage.The 29-year-old right hander jawed with Kansas City Royals catcher Salvador Perez during Game 2 of the World Series.Last season he threw at Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper three years after he homered off Strickland in the 2014 NLDS."I think that obviously my anger in these moments have gotten the best of me and caused stupid decisions, so I don't think I should be this angry person," Strickland said. "I think focused is the better word. We do have to be focused and locked in, focused on getting those outs."Strickland said he planned to address teammates later in the day."I'm responsible," Strickland said. "I'm not here to blame anybody on anything and I think that's the way it should be."Strickland had surgery Tuesday, in which two pins were put in his injured finger. He'll have more X-rays two weeks, when he hopes to have the pins taken out."That's out of my control," Strickland said. "I'll just do what I can, work hard and let the doctors decide the rest."

NEW YORK (AP) — Miami pitcher Dan Straily has been suspended for five games for intentionally throwing a pitch at San Francisco's Buster Posey while warnings were in place for both teams.Major League Baseball also suspended Marlins manager Don Mattingly for one game Thursday and fined Straily and Mattingly undisclosed amounts.On Tuesday night in the Marlins' 6-3 loss in San Francisco, Straily and Mattingly were automatically ejected in the second inning after Straily hit Posey on the left arm with a pitch. Both sides had been warned by plate umpire Andy Fletcher the previous inning after Giants rookie starter Dereck Rodriguez beaned Lewis Brinson as tempers flared for the second straight game. Posey had homered in the first inning.

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Major League Baseball will come to Omaha for a day next year as part of an initiative to take the product to new places, commissioner Rob Manfred said Thursday.As part of the buildup for the 2019 College World Series, the Detroit Tigers will play a regular-season game against the Kansas City Royals at TD Ameritrade Park on June 13. The CWS starts two days later."The College World Series in and of itself is a great event with a great tradition," Manfred said at a news conference. "We hope by playing here we bring even more attention to this game and help strengthen our relationship with the NCAA and college baseball as a whole."Manfred said there's no commitment to play a regular-season game in Omaha beyond next year, but that possibility exists.MLB has played regular-season games in Cuba, Mexico, Puerto Rico and also at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, and in Williamsport, Pennsylvania in conjunction with the Little League World Series."Each of these events has helped f...

NEW YORK (AP) — Now that he's no longer an active player, maybe Ichiro Suzuki wants to start swinging for the fences.How about at next month's Home Run Derby during All-Star festivities in Washington?What began as light-hearted banter among Seattle Mariners coaches grew into something that caused a stir in the clubhouse before Wednesday night's game against the New York Yankees."He's got power and he's been launching balls into the seats," Mariners manager Scott Servais said. "A couple of coaches said the other day, 'You know, no one wants to do this Home Run Derby. Why don't we just send Ichiro? He'd be awesome.'"The idea gained momentum when Servais mentioned it on a radio show Wednesday, and suddenly a new Twitter hashtag was born — #IchiForDC.Not officially retired but unlikely to appear in another major league game, the Japanese-born Suzuki shifted to a new role with Seattle as special assistant to the chairman in early May after batting .205 in 15 games this season.
