OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — The Seattle Mariners have placed ace James Paxton on the disabled list with a forearm bruise, one day after the left-hander was struck by a line drive.Paxton was facing the third batter in the first inning Tuesday night when Jed Lowrie lined a ball back up the middle, hitting the pitcher hard. Paxton walked toward second base in obvious pain as a team trainer and manager Scott Servais rushed onto the field.Paxton was replaced by Felix Hernandez.After the game, Paxton told reporters he felt tightness in his arm and could not grip a baseball. X-rays were negative.Paxton is 10-5, including a no-hitter against Toronto, and a 3.68 ERA. Hernandez, who allowed two runs over 5 2/3 innings, is likely to take Paxton's turn in the rotation.Right-hander Christian Bergman was recalled from Triple-A Tacoma to fill Paxton's roster spot.___More AP baseball: https://apnews.com/tag/MLBbaseball and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports

No team has gotten more innings from its starting pitchers this season than the Cleveland Indians. No team has gotten fewer than the Tampa Bay Rays.Yet the Indians and Rays have ended up in a similar spot. Cleveland's team ERA is 3.84. Tampa Bay's is 3.82.The Rays have been unorthodox in their approach , eschewing a normal starting rotation in favor of a system in which one of their usual relievers might take the mound at the beginning of a game. Right now, Tampa Bay's depth chart on MLB.com only lists three pitchers in the rotation — yet the Rays are 60-58 and have a chance for their first winning season since 2013.Tampa Bay has tried using an "opener" at the start of games. One of the team's relievers might start the game and pitch an inning or two. Then another pitcher — who might normally have been the starter — comes in and perhaps pitches through the middle innings. If his outing begins in the third, for example, he may benefit from not having to face the top hitters as oft... [More]

NEW YORK (AP) — The Texas Rangers have activated outfielder Delino DeShields from the seven-day concussion disabled list before their series finale against the New York Yankees.DeShields was batting ninth Sunday and playing center field.In a corresponding move, Texas optioned outfielder/infielder Drew Robinson to Triple-A Round Rock.DeShields was placed on the disabled list on Aug. 4 with concussion symptoms.

DeShields played in seven of the Rangers' 14 games after the All-Star break before being scratched from the lineup with headaches on Aug. 3.DeShields was batting .208 with 2 home runs and 21 RBIs in 81 games.___More AP baseball: https://apnews.com/tag/MLBbaseball and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports

NEW YORK (AP) — Ronald Guzman became the first rookie to hit three home runs in a game against the Yankees, powering the Texas Rangers past New York 12-7 on Friday night.Eight days after Boston's Steve Pearce connected three times off the Yankees, Guzman duplicated the feat in ending New York's four-game winning streak.Guzman grounded out his first time up, then hit solo home runs in three straight at-bats. The 23-year-old first baseman batted again in the eighth with a chance to tie the big league record for homers in a game — no rookie has ever hit four — but struck out swinging against Chad Green.Guzman's two homers off Masahiro Tanaka (9-3) and one off A.J. Cole made him the first Texas player to hit three home runs in a game since Adrian Beltre in 2012.Overall, Guzman has 12 home runs this season, six against the Yankees.Beltre also joined in the fun with his seventh homer of the season, tying recent Hall of Fame inductee Chipper Jones for the 33rd spot on baseball's career ...

CHICAGO (AP) — Jason Heyward broke up a no-hitter with a tying two-run single in the sixth inning, Anthony Rizzo drew a bases-loaded walk in the seventh and the Chicago Cubs beat the Washington Nationals 3-2 on Friday.In the first meeting between the teams since Chicago beat Washington in the NL Division Series, the Cubs won even though they didn't get a hit against Nationals starter Jeremy Hellickson.Rizzo walked three times. Manager Joe Maddon got ejected, but the Cubs pulled out the victory.Hellickson was sailing along, retiring 17 in a row after issuing a leadoff walk to Rizzo in the first. But things took a wild turn with two out in the sixth.He walked Rizzo on 13 pitches and both Javier Baez and Ben Zobrist on four to load the bases. Heyward took two balls from Sammy Solis (1-2) before lining the tying single past second baseman Daniel Murphy.Chicago took a 3-2 lead in the seventh after Maddon got tossed for arguing an interference call against Willson Contreras on the bases.Ky...

TORONTO (AP) — Blue Jays infielder Brandon Drury is going back on the disabled list, this time for a broken left hand that occurred before he was traded from the New York Yankees to Toronto.The Blue Jays put Drury on the 10-day DL on Tuesday. Infielder Richard Urena was called up from Triple-A Buffalo.Drury was injured when he was hit by a pitch a few days before he was traded to Toronto on July 26. X-rays at the time were negative, and the injury was diagnosed as a bone bruise. After his hand didn't improve, Drury underwent a CT scan Sunday, which revealed the fracture. He will wear a cast for two weeks before being re-evaluated.Drury was acquired along with outfielder Billy McKinney for left-hander J.A. Happ. Drury is batting .154 with no homers and three RBIs in eight games with the Blue Jays.Traded from Arizona to the Yankees in February, Drury began the season as New York's starting third baseman. He soon went on the disabled list because of migraines and blurry vision, and had spent much of his time in the minors before getting dealt to Toronto.

Mike Fiers may end up with another chance to pitch in the postseason.The Oakland Athletics acquired the right-hander from the Detroit Tigers on Monday for two players to be named or cash. The 33-year-old Fiers is 7-6 with a 3.48 ERA this season.Fiers was with the World Series champion Astros last year, but he was not included on any of Houston's postseason rosters. He did make one relief appearance for the Astros in the 2015 Division Series.The rebuilding Tigers picked Fiers up before the season on a $6 million, one-year contract , and he pitched well enough that he became a candidate to be traded to a contender.Detroit traded outfielder Leonys Martin to Cleveland, and general manager Al Avila said last week that Oakland and Milwaukee had shown interest in Fiers.

CHICAGO (AP) — New York Yankees left-hander J.A. Happ is on track to start Thursday against Texas after being sidelined by hand, foot and mouth disease.Manager Aaron Boone says Happ is no longer contagious. Assuming everything goes well over the next couple of days, Boone says Happ will be in line to start against the Rangers in the opener of an 11-game homestand.Happ came over in a July 26 trade with Toronto for infielder Brandon Drury and minor league outfielder Billy McKinney. He pitched six crisp innings in a win against Kansas City in his New York debut, but the illness took him out of a critical four-game series in Boston and the Yankees were swept by the major league-leading Red Sox.Happ, who turns 36 in October, is 11-6 with a 4.05 ERA in 21 starts this year.___More AP baseball: https://apnews.com/tag/MLBbaseball and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Shawn Kelley was acquired by the Oakland Athletics for international slot money on Sunday from the Nationals, who no longer wanted the reliever after he slammed his glove to the ground and glared into Washington's dugout during a game.The Nationals also sent cash to the A's in the swap.He was designated for assignment by Washington on Wednesday, a day after his mound outburst while pitching in the ninth inning of a 25-4 victory over the New York Mets.Kelley entered the game with Washington ahead 25-1. He was working quickly, and the plate umpire warned him to slow down. After the warning, Kelley gave up a two-run homer, prompting his tantrum.Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo explained the decision to cut ties with Kelley this way: "You're either in or you're in the way. I thought he was in the way. That's something you don't come back from."Rizzo called it "a disrespectful act" and "selfish."Kelley, a 34-year-old righty, was 1-0 with a 3.34 ERA in 35 games for Washington this season.He signed as a free agent with the Nationals in December 2015 and appeared in 135 games with the team.To clear a spot on the 40-man roster, Oakland recalled outfielder Jake Smolinski from Triple-A Nashville and placed him on the 60-day disabled list with a blood clot in his left calf.___More AP baseball: https://apnews.com/tag/MLBbaseball

CLEVELAND (AP) — Mike Trout's right wrist is still sore and the Los Angeles Angels won't risk him making it any worse.The superstar outfielder was not in the starting lineup for the third straight game on Saturday as the Angeles continued their three-game series against the Cleveland Indians.Trout injured his wrist on Wednesday while sliding into second base at Tampa Bay. The 26-year-old had been optimistic that he would be able to return Saturday, but he's still having some issues."Mike is moving in the right direction but he's not able to swing right now so he's day-to-day," manager Mike Scioscia said. "We'll chart the progress today and tomorrow and see where we are."While Trout seems close to returning, the Angels placed left-hander Tyler Skaggs on the 10-day disabled list with a left adductor strain. He was scheduled to start Sunday's series finale.X-rays and an MRI revealed only inflammation in Trout's wrist, but the Angels are taking an extra-cautious approach with the seven-t... [More]
