(AP) — Home plate umpire Jerry Layne has left the Los Angeles Angels' game against Boston after a foul ball from Mike Trout hit him on the right arm.Layne went to the locker room in the bottom of the first inning Thursday night.Trout's foul off the second pitch from Eduardo Rodriguez went straight back and smacked Layne on his right elbow or biceps.

Fri Apr 1300:09Ohtani eager for more as Angels balance work for 2-way star
Shohei Ohtani eagerly bounces into the cage when it's his turn during batting practice — and then puts on an impressive show knocking balls high and deep into the outfield seats.Whether hitting or pitching for the Los Angeles Angels, the rookie two-way sensation is raring to go and already wants to play more."He always says he's ready," manager Mike Scioscia said. "But right now we're definitely going to protect him as much as we can."While the 23-year-old from Japan has definitely lived up to the hype in the first two weeks of the season, the AL West-leading Angels have a tricky balancing act in managing the workload for Ohtani, who appeared in nine of their first 14 games.The right-handed pitcher with a fastball averaging about 99 mph, along with a nasty splitter and a biting slider, was 2-0 with a 2.08 ERA and 18 strikeouts over 13 innings while allowing only four hits in his two starts on the mound, both against Oakland. After retiring the final eight batters in his first start, ... [More]

Thu Apr 1201:23Rangers' Andrus breaks elbow after getting hit vs Angels
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Texas Rangers shortstop Elvis Andrus broke his right elbow Wednesday night when he was hit by a pitch in the ninth inning of the team's fourth straight loss.Andrus, the 29-year-old in his 10th season as the Rangers starting shortstop, is likely headed to the disabled list for the first time in his career.Dr. Keith Meister, the team's physician, did initial X-rays and an examination at the stadium, and the team said after the 7-2 loss to the Los Angeles Angels that those tests indicated the probability of a fracture.Andrus' elbow was put in a splint and he will be examined further Thursday, the team's first off day this season, to determine the severity of the injury and the course of recovery."Listen, you don't replace guys like this. It's such a huge part of the lineup and on the field defensively," Banister said, also mentioning Andrus' leadership.Andrus was hit by a fastball from hard-throwing reliever Keynan Middleton.

Sat Mar 3103:06Polanco's homer lifts Pirates past Tigers in kooky opener
DETROIT (AP) — Gregory Polanco hit a three-run homer in the 13th inning to lift the Pittsburgh Pirates to a 13-10 victory over Detroit on Friday — about an hour after the Tigers spilled onto the field to celebrate what they thought was a game-winning hit of their own.Nicholas Castellanos was initially called safe at home in the bottom of the 10th for the Tigers, but a replay review took the run away and the teams played on. Polanco's drive to right-center on a 3-0 pitch from Alex Wilson (0-1) finally gave the Pirates a comfortable lead — or as comfortable as could be on a wacky day in which both teams scored four runs in the ninth.Detroit put two men on base in the 13th, but Steven Brault (1-0) was able to hold on and finish his third scoreless inning of relief.By the time the 5-hour, 27-minute game was over, there were only three umpires and one manager left.
