A look at what's happening around the majors today:WOOD WORKA day after hitting three homers and two doubles in just six innings, Cardinals slugger Matt Carpenter tries to torment the Cubs over a doubleheader. Carpenter drove in seven before getting pulled early in St. Louis' 18-5 thrashing at Wrigley Field on Friday. He tied the major league record for extra-base hits in a game, and became the first player to do it in just six innings. He'll look to inflict more damage against starters Tyler Chatwood (3-5, 5.04) and Mike Montgomery (3-3, 3.91).METS MOVES COMING?The Mets could have a busy Saturday beyond their scheduled Subway Series game against the Yankees. Closer Jeurys Familia was held out of a tight game Friday night, and manager Mickey Callaway said it was because New York was nearing a trade to send Familia to a contender. Meanwhile, Yoenis Cespedes is contemplating season-ending surgery on his balky heels, and he said recovery from the operation would take 8-to-10 months. He's ... [More]

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — All-Star closer Brad Hand kept hearing his name in trade talk last year, when the lefty ended up staying with the San Diego Padres and got a new contract during the offseason.This time, Hand has switched teams and could have a bit of a different role than the one he had in the National League."Going into this year, I didn't really think it was going to happen after last year," Hand said Friday in the Cleveland Indians' clubhouse. "So I was obviously a little bit surprised. But my name was out there and talked about. ... (The Padres) got a deal worth taking."Hand and rookie right-handed sidearmer Adam Cimber joined the AL Central-leading Indians in time for the first game after the All-Star break, and both pitched Friday night against the Texas Rangers. Cleveland traded switch-hitting catching prospect Francisco Mejia to the Padres on Thursday to get the two relievers.Joey Gallo hit his 23rd homer, a towering, two-run drive to right-center in the seventh that g...

MILWAUKEE (AP) — It's a whole new beginning for Manny Machado after months of uncertainty. Perfect time for a new number, too.One with an LA story and a Baltimore past.Machado joined the Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday after coming over in a blockbuster trade with the Orioles during the All-Star break, putting one of baseball's premier players on one of the game's marquee teams. Batting in the second slot, ahead of young slugger Max Muncy and old friend Matt Kemp, he had two hits and walked twice in Los Angeles' 6-4 victory at Milwaukee.Muncy thought he might hear from Machado about his No. 13 after the deal, and he joked about possibly just having a new jersey when he arrived at Miller Park. But the 26-year-old Machado decided to try No. 8 with the Dodgers — Kobe Bryant's first number with the Los Angeles Lakers, and the same number Hall of Fame shortstop Cal Ripken Jr. wore with the Orioles.A nod to his past and his future."I wanted to change it up," said Machado, who grounded a si...

WASHINGTON (AP) — Stephen Strasburg was batted around by the Atlanta Braves, then engaged in a heated spat with Nationals ace Max Scherzer in the dugout during Washington's 8-5 loss Friday night.It was unclear what prompted the exchange between the star pitchers in their first game after the All-Star break.The dispute occurred after Strasburg (6-7), activated from the 10-day disabled list earlier in the day and throwing on his 30th birthday, gave up six runs and eight hits in 4 2/3 innings. He walked into the dugout, got a pat on the back from Scherzer and sat down on the bench. They began barking at each other, then both quickly went off-camera by leaving the dugout.The Braves lost All-Star second baseman Ozzie Albies in the third inning, and the team said he was lifted as a precaution because of right hamstring tightness. He had an RBI double and stole a base in a two-run first inning.Anibal Sanchez (5-2) allowed three runs over six innings for the Braves, who started the second ha... [More]

ANAHEIM, Calif.

Gonzalez leaped and got a glove on the Los Angeles Angels slugger's drive, but it trickled into the outfield.The Angel Stadium scorer awarded a hit to Upton, who was just the second baserunner allowed by Keuchel in the first game back from the All-Star break for the defending World Series champions.The heavily bearded Keuchel has never allowed fewer than three hits in a complete game during his career, but he got within seven of becoming the first left-hander to throw a no-hit complete game for the Astros, who have 11 no-hitters in franchise history.Keuchel retired the Angels' first nine batters, and then the next nine after walking leadoff hitter David Fletcher in the fourth.Houston led 3-0 after seven innings.___More AP baseball: www.apnews.com/tags/MLBbaseball

MILWAUKEE (AP) — One by one, the Milwaukee Brewers filed into an auditorium at Miller Park as reliever Josh Hader offered his latest apology for years-old tweets that surfaced during the All-Star Game.Those racist, homophobic social-media messages were thoughtless mistakes he made as a teenager, Hader said. He sought to reassure fellow Brewers that the vile words didn't represent the man he has become, one who has learned — in part because of baseball — to reject the language of bigotry.His teammates had his back on Friday.Fellow All-Stars Jesus Aguilar of Venezuela and Lorenzo Cain, who is African-American, were among those who stood directly behind Hader during a news conference about 90 minutes before the Brewers returned from the break by hosting the Los Angeles Dodgers."It's amazing.

Garrett RichardsSPAngelsDoubleHeader
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Shohei Ohtani is throwing baseballs again, and the Los Angeles Angels hope he'll eventually feel good enough to return to the mound this season.The Angels' two-way rookie sensation played catch from about 60 feet for the second straight day Friday, with a dozen clicking cameras documenting his every move in the Angel Stadium outfield.Ohtani was cleared by doctors Thursday to begin a throwing progression after he took six weeks off to rest the sprained ligament in his pitching elbow. He had a stem cell platelet-rich plasma injection one day after his most recent pitching appearance on June 6, and the sprain shows signs of healing.The Angels are eager to find out how well the treatment worked, and they're still hopeful that Ohtani can avoid Tommy John surgery. But they won't rush their prized newcomer back onto the mound — particularly while he's still contributing to the club's increasingly daunting playoff push as a designated hitter."It's very tough to fores...

WASHINGTON (AP) — Ozzie Albies has been pulled from the Atlanta Braves' game against the Washington Nationals because of right hamstring tightness.The Braves say the All-Star second baseman was lifted Friday as a precaution. Albies may have been injured running the bases during the first inning, when he hit an RBI double, stole third base and then dashed home on a groundout. Albies remained in the game until being hit for in the third inning.Albies, 21, returned from the All-Star break leading the NL in at-bats (405), runs (74), extra-base hits (52) and total bases (209). He is tied for the league lead in doubles (29) with teammate and fellow All-Star Nick Markakis. Albies is batting .283 with 20 home runs and 55 RBIs.The Braves entered Friday a half-game behind the NL-East leading Philadelphia Phillies.___More AP baseball: https://apnews.com/tag/MLBbaseball

SEATTLE (AP) — Seattle Mariners general manager Jerry Dipoto said Friday that Robinson Cano will be used at a few positions when he returns from his suspension next month, including first base.Where Cano ends up defensively is one of the big questions once he's eligible to return on Aug. 14 from his 80-game suspension for violating baseball's joint drug agreement. He's been a second baseman for the entirety of his major league career, but it may not be his primary position when he comes back.Following the suspension, Seattle moved Dee Gordon from center field back to his natural position at second base."We're looking at Dee as our second baseman. There may be a time especially mid-August to the end of the season where he slides out to center field for a day, but primarily he's going to play second base," Dipoto said. "We sat down and talked with Robbie and Robbie said, 'Whatever I need to do to help this team get to the postseason.' He was great about it."Cano recently relocated to t... [More]

"All this trade talk, it was going to come up either way, so it was our way of kind of getting ahead of it."DeGrom is 5-4 with a big league-best 1.68 ERA for the last-place Mets, who entered the second half with the fewest wins in the National League."I want to win here," deGrom said. "Wanting to be part of the future. I hope the feeling is mutual."He has a $7.4 million salary this year is eligible for salary arbitration for two more winters, then can become a free agent after the 2020 season."We've talked with Brodie a little bit," Mets assistant general manager John Ricco said. "We certainly respect Jacob's position clearly, but we also have an obligation to do what's best for the organization, whether that's trading him, extending him or letting the contract play out."Ricco said the Mets are willing to cover salaries of veterans in trades in exchange for minor league prospects.Closer Jeurys Familia and infielder Asdrubal Cabrera, both eligible for free agency, appear likely to be dealt.___More AP baseball: https://apnews.com/tag/MLBbaseball

Chris TillmanSPOriolesTeam Lorin
TORONTO (AP) — The Baltimore Orioles have designated former All-Star Chris Tillman for assignment, offering the veteran right-hander a chance to remain in the organization and pitch at Triple-A.Tillman, who started the 2016 AL Wild Card game for Baltimore, is 1-5 with a 10.46 ERA in seven starts and hasn't pitched since May 10 because of a back injury. He has not indicated whether he will accept Baltimore's offer or choose free agency.The Orioles cut Tillman at the conclusion of his 30-day minor league rehab assignment, opening a 40-man roster spot that allowed Baltimore to select infielder Renato Nunez from Triple-A. Nunez was in the lineup at third base for Friday's game at Toronto, Baltimore's first since trading Manny Machado to the Los Angeles Dodgers.Tillman was an All-Star in 2013 and started on opening day for Baltimore the next three seasons. Over that four-year span, he was 56-30 with a 3.91 ERA in 128 starts. Tillman began 2017 on the disabled list because of a shoulder injury and struggled in his return, going 1-7 with a 7.84 ERA in 24 games (19 starts). He signed a one-year contract to return to the Orioles in February, and ended an 11-month drought between wins by pitching seven shutout innings against Detroit on April 27. He didn't make it past the second inning in his next two starts.

SAN DIEGO (AP) — With an eye on October and beyond, the AL Central-leading Cleveland Indians scooped up All-Star closer Brad Hand and fellow reliever Adam Cimber from the rebuilding San Diego Padres in exchange for switch-hitting catching prospect Francisco Mejia.The Indians need Hand, a lefty, and Cimber, a rookie right-handed sidearmer, to shore up a bullpen that has been without left-hander Andrew Miller since late May and has a 5.28 ERA, second-worst in the majors. The trade was announced Thursday, well ahead of the non-waiver trade deadline."Not just for this year, that's kind of obvious, but having two controllable relievers, I just think it makes our organization healthier," manager Terry Francona said Thursday night before a workout in Arlington, Texas, where the Indians start after the All-Star break. "We've got eight years' worth of relief. That's pretty exciting."Hand and Cimber were both expected to join the Indians before Friday night's game against the Rangers.Cleveland... [More]
