LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Los Angeles Dodgers say they're studying how to improve the protective netting after a young girl was hit in the head by a liner from slugger Cody Bellinger.The fan was hit Sunday and taken to a hospital for precautionary tests. On Monday, the team said in a statement that it began looking last offseason into how the netting at Dodger Stadium could be reconfigured.The team said it will put the recommended changes into effect and extend the netting. The Dodgers provided no timeline or details on possible changes.The girl was sitting four rows from the field along the first-base line, just beyond the netting that extends to the end of the visiting dugout. The Dodgers didn't identify the girl, who was alert and answering questions after the incident in the first inning.The team had no update on her Monday.A woman died last August after being struck in the head by a foul ball at Dodger Stadium.Beginning last season, all 30 MLB teams extended their protective nettin...

Jesse ChavezRP/SPAngelsFree Agent
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Chris Woodward loves that the expectations are higher for the Texas Rangers.They are certainly higher than they were when the first-time manager took over a team coming off consecutive losing seasons."Whether that lasts and we sustain that, it's totally on us," Woodward said. "Do we have a team that we feel like can win every game? We do, and they truly believe that."After 21 games in 20 days, the Rangers got to their first day off in three weeks Monday. The are 42-36 and have lost only one of their last 12 series since a five-game losing streak that dropped them five games under .500 in mid-May.While three games shy of the midpoint of Woodward's first season, and still a bit early to talk about playoffs, the Rangers were only a half-game behind the American League's second wildcard."There's no question there's a lot of room for growth in every player in that locker room, but the overall belief is that we're going to win a game every time we step on the field,...

Cody Bellinger1B/LFDodgersFree Agent
The Los Angeles Dodgers needed a one-game playoff to win the NL West last year.That appears to have been an aberration.After six straight victories, the Dodgers now lead the division by 13 games, and that's a little more in line with their norm of late. Los Angeles has won the last six NL West titles, and twice the final margin was in double digits. Now the Dodgers own the best record in baseball and are in the middle of another midseason surge.The Dodgers are 15-6 this June, after going 17-9 in that month last year and 21-7 in 2017. Their last three games have been particularly pulsating, each of them won on a walk-off home run by a rookie. Will Smith, Matt Beaty and Alex Verdugo delivered those dramatic swings against Colorado, the team that took the division race with Los Angeles down to the 163rd game last season.The Dodgers seem eager to make sure it doesn't come to that in 2019. Their 3.16 team ERA is the best in the major leagues, and they lead the National League in on-base per... [More]

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A woman at Dodger Stadium was taken to a hospital Sunday for precautionary tests after being struck in the head by a foul ball from Los Angeles star Cody Bellinger during the first inning of a game against the Colorado Rockies.The young woman was sitting four rows from the field along the first base line, just beyond protective netting that extends to the end of the visiting dugout. She was hit by a sharp line drive by Bellinger, who checked on her between innings. She at first stayed in her seat and was given an ice pack, but she left about 15 minutes later for further attention.A first-aid person who treated the woman says she was taken to the hospital for precautionary tests but that she was alert and answering questions. The name of the woman was not released."It was weird. I saw it literally hit her face," Bellinger said. "I'm sure it was tough for everyone. I went over the next half inning to make sure. She said she was all right and gave me a thumb's up."Man... [More]

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Atlanta Braves have sent 2018 All-Star pitcher Mike Foltynewicz to the minor leagues following another ineffective start.Foltynewicz (2-5, 6.37 ERA) was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on Sunday after giving up eight runs in four innings to Washington less than 24 hours earlier.After the Braves rallied for a 13-9 win on Saturday night, Foltynewicz said, "It's just frustrating. I have a 7.00 ERA on a first-place team."By late Sunday morning, he was no longer part of the NL East-leading Braves' roster.Atlanta pitching coach Rick Kranitz said of the right-hander: "He's an All-Star, and he has great stuff.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Washington Nationals finally ran out of patience waiting for Trevor Rosenthal to throw strikes following his return from Tommy John surgery.Rosenthal was released by the Nationals on Sunday, less than 24 hours after the 29-year-old reliever walked all three batters he faced in a 13-9 loss to Atlanta.After undergoing elbow ligament replacement surgery in 2017, Rosenthal sat out last season before signing as a free agent with Washington in November. The Nationals were hopeful he would pitch as he did in 2014 and 2015 with St. Louis, when he totaled 93 saves.Instead, Rosenthal went 0-1 with an unsightly 22.74 ERA. He issued 15 walks and allowed 16 earned runs in 6 1/3 innings."He's got great stuff," Nationals manager Dave Martinez said.

CLEVELAND (AP) — Bobby Bradley has brought his big bat to the majors.The Indians recalled Bradley on Sunday from Triple-A Columbus, where he was leading the International League in home runs and causing Cleveland fans to question why he wasn't in a lineup needing power.The Indians, who are chasing AL Central-leading Minnesota, have been contemplating the move with Bradley for some time. He's in the lineup Sunday batting seventh and playing first as the Indians go for a three-game sweep over the Detroit Tigers.Bradley said he was so excited about his promotion to the majors that he put his car on cruise control during the two-hour drive from Columbus to Cleveland on Saturday."I couldn't keep my foot off the gas," Bradley said.

He is batting .314 with five homers and 14 RBIs in 42 games.Maybin got hurt in the third inning of Friday's 4-1 win over the Astros. Manager Aaron Boone said he has a Grade 2 strain and will be out for a while.Cortes is 2-0 with a 4.09 ERA in seven appearances for New York this year.___More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports
