Yankees place Giancarlo Stanton on IL with hamstring strain

Giancarlo Stanton has returned to the injured list — and the Yankees don’t know when the injury-plagued slugger might be ready to return to the lineup. Stanton, who was placed on the 10-day injured list on Sunday with a left hamstring strain suffered in Saturday night’s game in Tampa, will receive an MRI on Monday in New York to determine the gravity of the injury. After being limited to 18 matches last season, the former MVP — who also suffered a calf strain during spring training and was sidelined in last year’s ALCS —will make his third trip to the injured […]

Atlanta Braves ace Mike Soroka done for season with torn Achilles

Atlanta Braves ace Mike Soroka is out for the season after tearing his right Achilles tendon Monday night versus the New York Mets. Soroka was hurt in the third inning after delivering a pitch to J.D. Davis, who grounded the ball toward first baseman Freddie Freeman. Soroka broke toward first to cover the bag, only to go down on his first step off the mound. The right-hander knew right away it was a devastating injury, one that ensures he won’t be back on the mound until 2021. “It’s a freak thing that happened,” manager Brian Snitker said, delivering the grim news after the Braves lost […]

Dodgers’ Joe Kelly suspended 8 games by MLB for incident with Astros

Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Joe Kelly was suspended for eight games by Major League Baseball on Wednesday, a day after throwing a fastball near the head of Houston’s Alex Bregman and mockingly taunting Astros star Carlos Correa. Benches cleared after Kelly’s movements during the sixth inning of Los Angeles’ 5-2 victory at Minute Maid Park. The game marked the first time the teams had met since it was revealed Houston stole signs en route to a 2017 World Series title that came at the Dodgers’ expense. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts was suspended one game and Astros manager Dusty Baker was fined an unrevealed amount. Baker said he was […]

Orioles put Dwight Smith Jr. on IL; John Means Iffy for Opening Day start

The Baltimore Orioles placed outfielder Dwight Smith Jr. on the 10-day injured list Monday, and manager Brandon Hyde isn’t sure if left-hander John Means will be able to start the opener at Boston on Friday night. Smith recently returned to the team after testing positive for COVID-19 and still needs time to get into baseball shape. Hyde said the Orioles have the option of activating Smith “at any time” and that he could still be on the opening day roster. But at this point, Smith is still trying to work his way back. “He just hasn’t participated in a full-squad workout,” Hyde said. Means developed a […]

Yoan Moncada rejoins White Sox from 10 day injury list

Yoán Moncada is back with the White Sox, and that’s good news when it comes to his ability to be a part of the Opening Day roster. Moncada was located on the 10-day injured list last Friday, and with no reason or timetable for his return provided by the White Sox, there were legitimate questions as to whether he’d be ready for Opening Day on July 24. But back in major league camp with a week before the season begins, Moncada could have enough ramp-up time to be ready for the season-opener versus the Minnesota Twins. Whether a week will be […]

Rays ace Blake Snell says he refuses to play for reduced MLB salary

Tampa Bay Rays star Blake Snell alleged he would not be playing this season for a reduced salary, particularly because the risk of getting coronavirus “is not worth it.” Snell protested Major League Baseball’s 50-50 revenue split with players for a season shortened by coronavirus in a video posted on social media on Wednesday. “You all have to understand, man, that I’m leaving – that I’m going to drop a salary, that’s not the case, because the risk goes through the roof,” said Snell when answering questions on his Twitch channel. “It’s a shorter season, less pay. “No, I must […]
