Seattle Mariners LHP James Paxton to have season-ending elbow surgery

James Paxton’s first season back with the Seattle Mariners has come to an unexpected end, as the left-hander will undergo season-ending surgery, manager Scott Servais stated last Tuesday. Servais said Paxton will have surgery on his left elbow, but did not say Tommy John. Paxton, 32, went on the 10-day injured list Wednesday with a forearm strain in his pitching arm after leaving his first start of the season in the second inning after 24 pitches. Paxton was 41-26 with a 3.42 ERA for the Mariners from 2013 to 2018, striking out 617 and walking 168 in 582⅓ innings. He was traded […]

Ryu sharp as Blue Jays top Yankees

Hyun Jin Ryu cruised into the seventh inning, Marcus Semien and Rowdy Tellez homered, and the Toronto Blue Jays defeated the New York Yankees 7-3 on Tuesday night. Ryu (1-1) permitted only an unearned run over 6 2/3 innings, striking out seven and limiting the Yankees to four hits and a walk. The Blue Jays ace retired 12 in a row after DJ LeMahieu had a leadoff infield single in the first. “Vintage Ryu,” Toronto manager Charlie Montoyo said. “When he takes the mound, we know we have a good chance to win. Ryu threw 68 of 95 pitches for strikes. “The way it plays during the game, I see which […]

Bullpen shines as Padres blank Rangers for 3-game sweep

Trent Grisham and Manny Machado homered, Craig Stammen led a parade of six effective San Diego relievers after starter Adrian Morejon left early with an injury, and the Padres beat the Texas Rangers 2-0 on Sunday for a three-game sweep. Grisham pulled a 1-0 fastball into the right-field stands off Mike Foltynewicz (0-2), who had retired the first nine batters. Machado hammered a 2-2 changeup off Ian Kennedy deep down the left-field line leading off the ninth. “The way we pitched and played defense, we battled at the plate, got the big one from Grish, and then it’s so nice to get that extra add-on,” Padres manager Jayce Tingler said. “Just a great […]

Lynn pitches 1st shutout of season, White Sox top Royals 6-0

There wasn’t much doubt Lance Lynn would go back out to finish this one. Manager Tony La Russa turned to him and asked how he was feeling. “He looked at me and said, ‘Are you good?’” Lynn said. “I said, ‘I’m gonna finish it. Does that sound good?’ He goes, ‘Sounds good.’ And that was pretty much it.” Lynn pitched a five-hitter for the first complete game and shutout in the major leagues this season, and the Chicago White Sox beat the Kansas City Royals 6-0 on a rainy Thursday. Yermín Mercedes kept up his scorching start with a 485-foot homer. Yoán Moncada went deep, and the White […]

San Diego Padres star Fernando Tatis Jr. suffers partial shoulder dislocation on hard swing, will undergo MRI

Padres star shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. suffered another injury to his troublesome left shoulder on a hard swing Monday and left San Diego’s loss to the San Francisco Giants. The Padres declared that Tatis exited because of a shoulder subluxation, which is a partial dislocation of the joint, and will undergo an MRI on Tuesday. Padres manager Jayce Tingler told reporters that Tatis has experienced minor dislocations in the past but said that Monday’s incident was the most pain he’s ever seen Tatis in. Tingler also acknowledged that the nagging shoulder issue may have been bothering Tatis “more than we realized.” Tatis crumpled […]

New York Mets and All-Star shortstop Francisco Lindor agree to 10-year, $341 million deal

The New York Mets and shortstop Francisco Lindor have agreed to a 10-year, $341 million deal, a source told ESPN’s Jeff Passan on Wednesday. Lindor’s deal will be the third largest based on total value in major league history, trailing only the deals for the Los Angeles Angels’ Mike Trout ($426.5 million) and the Los Angeles Dodgers’ Mookie Betts ($365 million). The Mets were widely expected to sign Lindor to a long-term extension after getting the four-time All-Star in a blockbuster trade with the Cleveland Indians this offseason. The negotiations became a major storyline during spring training, with new Mets owner Steve Cohen writing on Twitter last week, “What do think Lindor will accept? I’m […]

Texas Rangers moving on from Rougned Odor; Jose Leclerc to have Tommy John surgery

Rougned Odor, the Texas Rangers’ starting second baseman over the past seven seasons, has been told he won’t be on the Opening Day roster after switching to third base this spring, the team stated Monday. The Rangers also announced Monday that former closer Jose Leclerc will undergo Tommy John surgery. President of baseball operations Jon Daniels stated the Rangers don’t have an every-day role for Odor.

New York Yankees put Corey Kluber second behind Gerrit Cole in rotation

Corey Kluber will follow ace Gerrit Cole in the New York Yankees’ rotation, and Jameson Taillon will be skipped the first time through as the team builds him up slowly in his return following Tommy John surgery. Cole will start Thursday’s opener against Toronto at Yankee Stadium and Kluber, returning from two injury-filled seasons, will start Saturday against the Blue Jays. “When he’s at his best, he’s kind of masterful and precise,” Yankees manager Aaron Boone said. “We’ve seen all that flash this spring.” A 34-year-old righty, Kluber signed an $11 million, one-year contract with the Yankees, his third team in three years, The two-time Cy […]

Texas Rangers’ Jose Leclerc to miss extended time with elbow issue

The Texas Rangers have another potential long-term elbow issue with a late-inning reliever they hoped to count on in a rebuilding campaign. One-time closer Jose Leclerc has returned to Texas because of right elbow soreness, a setback that comes about two weeks after fellow right-hander Jonathan Hernandez was detected with a sprained elbow ligament. The Rangers have already indicated they plan to start the season with Hernandez on the 60-day injured list. General manager Chris Young stated Monday the club won’t know how long Leclerc will be out until after he is examined by team physician Dr. Keith Meister. The 22-year-old reported the soreness after a […]
