TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — New York Yankees first baseman Greg Bird is scheduled to play Saturday, three days after getting hit on the right elbow by a pitch from Houston's Wade Miley."I'm just glad it's good," Bird said Friday.Bird and Luke Voit will likely share time at first base and designated hitter to start the regular season. The pair has been competing for the first base job but both are expected to make the 25-man roster because of injuries to others.Bird hit 11 homers and drove in 31 runs in 46 games in late 2015. He missed all of 2016 following right shoulder surgery, was limited to 48 games in 2017 because of ankle and knee issues and slumped to a .199 average with 11 homers and 38 RBIs in 82 games last year, when he started the season on the disabled list following right ankle surgery.The 26-year-old has had a strong spring training, hitting .333 (13 for 39) with three homers and eight RBIs in 17 games."Ready to get going," Bird said.TRAINER'S ROOMAce Luis Severino (right should...

GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) — Star shortstop Francisco Lindor and double-play partner Jason Kipnis have been ruled out for opening day by the Cleveland Indians.The team said Friday night that neither player will be ready for Thursday's opener at Minnesota. Lindor will start the year on the 10-day injured list. He has been recovering from a right calf strain that's limited him during spring training. He has yet to appear in a Cactus League game but has participated in intrasquad minor league games. Potentially frigid weather in Minneapolis is an extra concern for Cleveland.Kipnis had an MRI on Thursday which confirmed a mild right calf strain. He won't do any baseball activities for 7 to 10 days before being re-evaluated.Eric Stamets is likely to replace Lindor at short, and either Jose Ramirez or Max Moroff will likely slot in at second.Outfielder Bradley Zimmer will also open the season on the 10-day IL. Zimmer had surgery on his right shoulder last July and is still recovering.___More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Mike Trout wrapped up an eventful spring in Arizona on Friday with his third home run, and first since signing his record new deal.Trout received a 12-year, $426.5 million contract Wednesday, and in two games since, he's 2-for-7, hitting an RBI single Thursday and the three-run homer Friday as the Los Angeles Angels hosted the Chicago White Sox. In 14 games in Arizona, he batted .293.The two-time Most Valuable Player joked that he and teammate Kole Calhoun wanted to make sure they hit at least one homer in spring training."I think the biggest thing is just getting one," Trout said. "That's the goal for me and Kole. We say we just need one. We don't want to use them all up in spring."Justin Upton walked to open the Angels' first and Calhoun singled to set up Trout's homer, a laser that landed on the left field berm at Tempe Diablo Stadium. Trout connected on a 2-1 pitch from White Sox opening day starter Carlos Rodon."I hit that ball pretty good," Trout said. "I wa... [More]

PHOENIX (AP) — The Milwaukee Brewers vaunted bullpen is entering the season without a couple of its most imposing pieces.Corey Knebel is out indefinitely with a partial tear of the ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow, the type of injury that sometimes ends in Tommy John surgery. He's expected to join Jeremy Jeffress, down with a sore right shoulder, on the injured list to open the season.Knebel had 16 saves and a 3.58 ERA with Milwaukee last season, plus a 1.29 ERA in six postseason appearances. He plans to see multiple doctors before deciding if he needs surgery."It's going to take a week for him to compile some opinions from other doctors and then sit down and make a decision on what he feels is the best way to get this thing right," manager Craig Counsell said Friday.Knebel missed about six weeks early last season with a hamstring injury. He was an All-Star in 2017 with 39 saves and a 1.78 ERA in 78 innings.Jeffress, another important cog in the bullpen a year ago, hasn't... [More]

The pair have been competing for the first base job but both are expected to make the 25-man roster because of injuries to others.Bird hit 11 homers and drove in 31 runs in 46 games in late 2015. He missed all of 2016 following right shoulder surgery, was limited to 48 games in 2017 because of ankle and knee issues and slumped to a .199 average with 11 homers and 38 RBIs in 82 games last year, when he started the season on the disabled list following right ankle surgery.The 26-year old has had a strong spring training, hitting .333 (13 for 39) with three homers and eight RBIs in 17 games."Ready to get going," Bird said.TRAINER'S ROOMAce Luis Severino (right should...
