NEW YORK (AP) — The struggling New York Mets made a couple of roster changes Friday, cutting Hansel Robles and demoting fellow reliever Paul Sewald to the minor leagues.Right-hander Drew Smith and outfielder Kevin Kaczmarski were called up from Triple-A Las Vegas before the opener of a three-game series against the Los Angeles Dodgers.Robles was designated for assignment, removing him from the 40-man roster.

He allowed seven home runs and walked 10 in 19 2/3 innings."Hansel's been with us quite a while. We've seen him pitch well. We've seen him pitch less well.

NEW YORK (AP) — Toronto Blue Jays closer Roberto Osuna has agreed to a suspension through Aug. 4 under baseball's domestic violence policy, discipline that will cause him to miss about half of the season.Osuna has not pitched since May 6, two days before he was put on administrative leave when he was charged with one count of assault in Toronto.Major League Baseball said Friday the suspension is retroactive to May 8 and covers 75 games. Osuna will wind up missing 89 days, which would cost him about $2.54 million of his $5.3 million salary."I don't have much of a reaction other than you take what MLB does and trust that and live with that and let it go through its course," Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said before Friday night's road game against the Los Angeles Angels.

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).

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]

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]
