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).

DENVER (AP) — Right-hander Jose Urena has been placed on the 10-day disabled list with right shoulder impingement, the latest setback in a disappointing season for the Miami Marlins' opening day starter.Urena is 2-9 with a 4.40 ERA. He had a shutout through five innings in his most recent start Wednesday at San Francisco and then gave up five runs in the sixth and took the loss.He complained afterward that he felt something wrong with his arm.The Marlins began a weekend series Friday in Denver, and the roster move was retroactive to Thursday. Miami also reinstated right-handed reliever Nick Wittgren from 10-day DL.___More AP baseball: https://apnews.com/tag/MLBbaseball

CHICAGO (AP) — The Oakland Athletics have activated outfielder Matt Joyce from the 10-day disabled list and optioned outfielder Jake Smolinski to Triple-A Nashville.Sidelined since June 2 because of a strained lower back, Joyce was not in the lineup for the first game of Friday's doubleheader against the Chicago White Sox. But manager Bob Melvin was planning to have him play in the nightcap.An All-Star with Tampa Bay in 2011, Joyce was batting just .196 through his first 55 games. He hit .243 with 25 homers and 68 RBIs last season, his first with Oakland.Smolinski was batting .128 in 19 games. The Athletics were planning to call up lefty reliever Daniel Coulombe for the second game as the 26th man.___More AP baseball: https://apnews.com/tag/MLBbaseball

CHICAGO (AP) — White Sox right fielder Avisail Garcia was activated from the 10-day disabled list Friday after missing two months because of a strained right hamstring.Garcia was in the lineup for Game 1 of Chicago's doubleheader against the Oakland Athletics — his first appearance since April 23. He was off to a slow start with a .233 average and four RBIs in 18 games after hitting .330 and driving in 80 runs last year while making his first All-Star team.Garcia also hurt his right knee taking a swing while he was on the DL, prior to going on a rehab assignment. But now that he is healthy, he hopes to get on a roll."My knee is good," he said. "My hamstring is good. I have no pain in my body right now. I feel great, great and focused and trying to compete every single day."Manager Rick Renteria said he had no hesitation starting Avisail Garcia and returning utility player Leury Garcia in the opener of the doubleheader despite the soggy conditions. He said neither player would start Game 2, though they would be available off the bench.Renteria also said there would be no limitations on them after Friday. Leury Garcia was starting in left field in his first appearance since May 23.The White Sox also optioned infielder Jose Rondon to Triple-A Charlotte, and designated outfielder Trayce Thompson for assignment on Friday.___More AP baseball: https://apnews.com/tag/MLBbaseball

BALTIMORE (AP) — As they stagger toward the midpoint of their miserable 2018 baseball season, the Orioles own the worst record in the majors and are on pace to lose 100 games for only the third time since their move to Baltimore in 1954.Worst of all, they never saw it coming.After giving free agent Alex Cobb a four-year, $57 million contract and signing veteran right-hander Andrew Cashner, the Orioles figured they had a solid starting rotation to go with a power-laden lineup — a formula designed to produce the team's fourth postseason berth in seven years under manager Buck Showalter."We had really high hopes, as most teams do, especially in spring training," slugger Mark Trumbo said. "Our offense was really firing, and we had both Cashner and Cobb coming into the fold to go with a similar group of guys from the last couple years."Nothing has gone according to plan. Entering Friday night's game in Atlanta, the Orioles were 21-52 (10-29 on the road) and a whopping 29 ½ games behind... [More]

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Mike Trout will be the Los Angeles Angels' designated hitter for his 1,000th career game Thursday night because of a sprained right index finger.The Angels don't expect to use Trout in the outfield during this four-game set against Toronto, but manager Mike Scioscia says the injury is not serious. Scioscia says it will not hinder Trout's ability to grip or swing the bat.Trout is batting .448 with five home runs and 12 RBIs in June. During an eight-game hitting streak, Trout is 16 for 23 (.696).Tyler Skaggs was scratched from his scheduled start Thursday because of tightness in his right hamstring. Left-hander John Lamb (0-0, 3.60 ERA) will take his place.With 13 players already on the disabled list, including nine pitchers, Scioscia said the team wanted to be cautious with Skaggs. Scioscia says there was a chance Skaggs could start Sunday, "but he has to pitch, obviously, with no restrictions."___More AP baseball: https://apnews.com/tag/MLBbaseball

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."

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Shelby Miller is scheduled to return to the Arizona Diamondbacks' rotation Monday, 14 months after the right-hander underwent Tommy John elbow ligament replacement surgery.Miller will face the Marlins in Miami. He rejoined the NL West-leading Diamondbacks before their game Thursday night against the Pirates after making four rehab starts in the minor leagues."I'm pretty excited but I'm assuming the first (start) back won't be perfect," Miller said. "There are going to be times where I'm going to have to bear down and get through some stuff. I've talked to people (who have had the surgery) and they say command is the last thing to come back."The 27-year-old Miller pitched a combined 19 1/3 innings in his rehab starts, two with Double-A Jackson and two with Single-A Visalia. He allowed 10 runs and 20 hits while striking out 28 and walking six.A 15-game winner in 2013 with the St. Louis Cardinals and an All-Star in 2015 with the Atlanta Braves, Miller was injured in hi...
