CHICAGO (AP) — Christian Walker is out of the starting lineup for the Arizona Diamondbacks' series finale against the Chicago Cubs because of a hip pointer.Walker got hurt on a play at the plate during Saturday's 6-0 victory. The first baseman finished with a career-high four hits.Wilmer Flores got the start at first on Sunday. Walker says he is available off the bench and should be ready to go for Monday night's series opener at Pittsburgh.The Diamondbacks also recalled right-hander Jimmie Sherfy from the Triple-A Reno.

NEW YORK (AP) — Aaron Judge won't be back with the New York Yankees anytime soon, a further blow to an injury-decimated team with a mediocre record 3½ weeks into the season.New York's biggest offensive threat and the heart of its clubhouse went on the injured list for the third time in four seasons Sunday, a day after straining the oblique muscle on the left side of his abdomen while hitting a sixth-inning single against Kansas City."Pretty significant strain in there," manager Aaron Boone said. "These next couple of weeks will kind of be a lot of just the healing process, so I think once we get through these first couple of weeks then we'll have a better timeline."Judge broke his right wrist when hit by a pitch by the Royals' Jakob Junis last July 26 and did not return until Sept. 14. The Yankees were 65-36 when Judge went on the DL, went 25-20 while he was out, then won 10 of their final 16 games en route to a second-place finish in the AL East.He became the Yankees' major league-...

NEW YORK (AP) — Aaron Judge has a "pretty significant strain" of his left oblique, according to Yankees manager Aaron Boone, and it will be several weeks before New York can even estimate when the slugger will return.Boone said Sunday that Judge will need to rest and allow the injury to heal. Judge was hurt Saturday while swinging at a pitch against Kansas City.He became the Yankees' 13th player on the disabled list and the 14th overall this season, joining Giancarlo Stanton, Aaron Hicks, Gary Sánchez, Didi Gregorius, Miguel Andújar and Greg Bird. Those six and Judge accounted for 175 of the team's record 267 homers last year and 515 of the 821 RBIs.Judge sustained a season-ending right oblique strain while fouling off a pitch against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Sept. 13, 2016.Infielder Thairo Estrada, the only remaining healthy position player on the 40-man roster, was recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Estrada, recovered from a February 2018 gunshot wound sustained in Venezuela, would make his major league debut.Sánchez, out since April 10 with a strained left calf, is scheduled to play a rehabilitation game Monday with Class A Charleston and could be activated before Wednesday's game at the Los Angeles Angels.___More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — The Boston Red Sox placed right-hander Nathan Eovaldi on the 10-day injured list on Saturday because of an elbow injury.The team, which made the move retroactive to Thursday, said Eovaldi has two "loose bodies" in his right elbow. He has had two Tommy John operations and also had surgery last year to remove loose bodies in the elbow."It's just frustrating when you're coming off a good outing and you're taking the right steps forward, and you have to have this and you just can't throw," said Eovaldi, who informed the Red Sox on Thursday night that he could not straighten his right arm.He had pitched six innings against the New York Yankees on Wednesday night.Eovaldi and Dave Dombrowski, Red Sox president of baseball operations, said the injury appears to be similar to the one that sidelined the pitcher for the first two months of 2018.It has yet to be determined whether more surgery is the best option."Don't know until the doctor takes a look at it," Dombro...

He was patient for months, stayed focused on clearing the fences instead of cashing checks, all while showing Oakland's front office it needed to get a new deal done to keep the majors' reigning home run leader around for the foreseeable future."I don't seek attention, I guess, I'm not an attention seeker," Davis said.His 10 home runs entering Friday's game against Toronto was tied for most in baseball.The 31-year-old designate...
