Greg HollandRPRockiesFree Agent
ST. LOUIS (AP) — As the St. Louis Cardinals took stock of their situation a day after the firing of manager Mike Matheny, some players said they bear some responsibility for Matheny's sudden dismissal.Matheny was fired Saturday night after an 8-2 loss to the last-place Cincinnati Reds. The Cardinals entered Sunday's game one game over .500 and 7½ games behind the NL Central-leading Chicago Cubs and are in danger of missing the playoffs for a third straight season for the first time since 1999."We all feel bad for Mike and ultimately it comes down on us," veteran infielder Jedd Gyorko said Sunday. "We're the guys that go out there and play and perform. I feel like we haven't done that good enough."Bench coach Mike Shildt will serve as interim manager, starting with Sunday's final game before the All-Star break."As a player, for me, it's like, 'What could I have done better to keep this from happening?'" reliever Greg Holland said. "I don't know if it's necessarily fair. It's just the... [More]

Austin MeadowsCFPiratesFree Agent
PITTSBURGH (AP) — The Pittsburgh Pirates demoted outfielder Austin Meadows to Triple-A Indianapolis on Sunday and recalled right-handed reliever Tanner Anderson.The 23-year-old Meadows was the team's first-round pick in the 2013 draft. He hit .298 in 48 games with Pittsburgh, but he has lost playing time to Corey Dickerson and Gregory Polanco. In July, Meadows hit .233 as his playing opportunities declined."I'm really excited about what he did, especially that first week," Pirates general manager Neal Huntington said. "The last month hasn't been as productive, and it's tough to ask a young player to not play. It's in his best interests and our best interests to let him grow and develop."Huntington rebuffed the suggestion that Meadows' demotion was related to the possibility that he could qualify for salary arbitration early by gaining Super Two status. The general manager called such projetions "inexact."The 25-year-old Anderson had a 2.17 ERA in 27 games with Indianapolis and will provide bullpen depth after Saturday's doubleheader against the Brewers.

PITTSBURGH (AP) — The Milwaukee Brewers placed infielder Jonathan Villar on the 10-day disabled list Sunday with a right thumb strain.Villar injured his thumb sliding into third base in Milwaukee's 6-3 loss in the second game of a doubleheader against the Pirates on Saturday.He will have an MRI later Sunday. There is not a timeframe for his return. Villar hit .261 with six home runs and 22 RBIs over 87 games.The Brewers recalled outfielder Brett Phillips from Triple-A Colorado Springs. He has a .257 average, four homers and 12 RBIs in 46 major league games.Villar is the 10th Brewers player on the disabled list, with five of them suffering injuries in the final 10 days before the All-Star break."That's a lot. We're fortunate that we have a lot of depth," assistant general manager Matt Arnold said. "We're looking at hopefully getting a lot of those guys back here shortly after the break."Milwaukee is 2-7 in that stretch, including five straight losses, and ceded first place in the NL Central to the Chicago Cubs.___More AP baseball: https://apnews.com/tag/MLBbaseball

ST.

Hitting coach John Mabry and assistant hitting coach Bill Mueller were also fired.The Cardinals haven't missed three straight postseasons since 1997-99."These decisions are never easy, but we felt that a change in leadership was necessary as the team prepares to enter into the second half of the season," Cardinals President of Baseball Operations John Mozeliak said.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Dodgers have sent prized pitching prospect Walker Buehler back to the minors.The 23-year-old right-hander was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Saturday, hours after allowing two runs on a pair of solo homers and six hits in a no-decision against the Angels. He struck out five and walked one in five innings of his 10th start.Manager Dave Roberts said Buehler would likely throw a simulated game next week in Oklahoma City.Buehler is 4-2 with a 3.45 ERA with the Dodgers this season. He's limited the opposition to a .228 average while striking out 59 and walking 13 in 11 games.The Dodgers are closely monitoring Buehler's workload, although they have not announced a limit for him.He tossed just five innings in 2016 after Tommy John surgery. Last year, he pitched 98 innings. He's worked 73 1-3 innings so far this season.Buehler has racked up travel miles this season, having been optioned to Oklahoma City twice previously and to Class-A Rancho Cucamonga. He's also been on the disabled list with a microfracture to his rib.The Dodgers activated left-hander Zac Rosscup, who was claimed off waivers from the Colorado Rockies earlier in the week.___More AP baseball: https://apnews.com/tag/MLBbaseball

CLEVELAND (AP) — New York Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez will begin a rehab stint on Sunday at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre as he recovers from a groin strain.Sanchez has been sidelined since June 25, but has steadily improved in recent days and is ready to return to the field.Yankees manager Aaron Boone said Saturday that as long as Sanchez continues to progress, the plan is for him to start behind the plate in the club's first game after the All-Star break — July 20 against the New York Mets.Sanchez is batting .190 with 14 homers and 41 RBIs in 63 games.While Sanchez has been out, Austin Romine has handled the bulk of New York's catching duties.Boone said the Yankees miss Sanchez most because he's a "dynamic hitter" who gives New York's lineup more length.Sanchez hit 33 homers and drove in 90 runs last season, his first full campaign in the majors.___More AP baseball: https://apnews.com/tag/MLBbaseball
