HOUSTON (AP) — The Houston Astros have optioned reliever Ken Giles to Triple-A Fresno, a night after he appeared to curse at manager A.J. Hinch when he lifted him from the game.Despite Tuesday night's incident, the Astros insisted that the move was about baseball and not the right-hander's behavior."We need to get his pitching right," Hinch said on Wednesday. "He's had an up-and-down season. He's had signs that things are good. He's had some bad games. He's had some meltdowns. But we need to get him right. He's not right and we've got to get him right mentally and physically to make sure he's a good contributor to a 'pen."The Astros were up by four to start the ninth inning against Oakland on Tuesday night when Giles took over and gave up three straight singles, which cut the lead to 4-1.Hinch came to the mound to take out Giles and the television broadcast caught him appearing to curse at Hinch right after he walked by him on his way off the field.

CLEVELAND (AP) — Indians reliever Andrew Miller threw off the mound Wednesday at Progressive Field, a major stride in his recovery from knee inflammation."Really well," manager Terry Francona said describing Miller's workout, which was closely observed by pitching coach Carl Willis. "I think every time he throws, he takes a step in the right direction."Miller has been on the disabled list since May 26, and the left-hander's absence has had a detrimental effect on Cleveland's bullpen, which entered Wednesday's series finale against Cincinnati with the AL's highest ERA.On Tuesday, Indians closer Cody Allen and Dan Otero couldn't protect a 4-0 lead as the Reds rallied for a 7-4 win.Miller has been throwing off a bullpen mound, but the Indians moved his workout onto the ballpark's main mound so the team could better use monitoring equipment to track his mechanics, velocity and location.Francona said the next step for Miller before he returns to the Indians — and that won't be until aft...

CLEVELAND (AP) — Indians manager Terry Francona spent the night tossing, turning and trying to forget.There are tough losses during the course of a season. And then there are troubling ones — like what happened Tuesday night."I thought about it at 1 o'clock. I thought about it at 2 o'clock. I thought about it at 3 o'clock. I thought about it at 4 o'clock," Francona said Wednesday, still coping with the Indians' shocking — and embarrassing — 7-4 loss to Cincinnati. "Between 6 and 8 I actually slept."He wasn't the only one with insomnia.Francona and several of his coaches had trouble moving past a communication breakdown that helped the Reds score seven runs in the ninth inning. As the Reds were rallying, Francona wanted to bring in left-hander Oliver Perez to face slugger Joey Votto with two outs, the bases loaded and the Indians clinging to a 4-3 lead. But pitching coach Carl Willis thought he heard Francona tell him to summon right-hander Dan Otero.Votto promptly hit a three-r... [More]
Wed Jul 1117:57FANTASY PLAYS: Parks affect values for daily pitchers on KsLorenzo CainCFBrewersFree Agent
Gerrit ColeSPAstrosFree Agent
It's common in fantasy baseball to factor parks in when helping value players. Lorenzo Cain saw a boost in value in season-long leagues because moving from Kansas City to Milwaukee was expected to boost his offensive numbers. Daily park shifts can similarly help us to deduce value in each game.At this point in the evolution of daily fantasy baseball, using offensive park factors is fairly common practice, and the edge is reduced in knowing parks in Colorado, Texas, and Cincinnati are offensive boons while parks in San Francisco and Pittsburgh favor the pitcher.But one area of park factors that is seldom discussed is their effect on strikeouts. A close look at the data shows that certain parks inflate strikeout totals while other parks suppress strikeout totals due to some combination of several factors: amount of foul territory, elevation, batter's eye, and potentially other small, unknown but impactful factors.A good example of this is Houston ace Gerrit Cole. Cole moved from PNC Park... [More]

NEW YORK (AP) — The Philadelphia Phillies have activated right-hander Vince Velasquez from the 10-day disabled list.Velasquez had been sidelined by a bruised right forearm. He is slated to start Wednesday night against the New York Mets.The 26-year-old Velasquez was hit just below the elbow by a line drive off the bat of Washington's Adam Eaton on June 30. He retrieved the ball and threw left-handed to first for the out, and then fell to the ground in pain.Velasquez was placed on the disabled list on July 1 and missed just one start. He has made four trips to the DL in his three seasons with Philadelphia.Enyel De Los Santos was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Tuesday night after throwing 6 1/3 effective innings to earn a win over the Mets in his major league debut. The 22-year old prospect is eligible to play for the World Team in Sunday's All-Star Futures Game.___More AP baseball: https://apnews.com/tag/MLBbaseball
