Wed Mar 2705:17Indians' Jose Ramirez expected in opening day lineup
Jose Ramirez is expected to be in the Cleveland Indians' opening day lineup Thursday, four days after fouling a pitch off the area below his left knee.Manager Terry Francona said Tuesday that Ramirez should be ready to go for the opener at Minnesota. The All-Star third baseman worked out Monday and Tuesday in Arizona, testing his bruised left knee while Cleveland finished its exhibition schedule with games against the Rangers in Texas. Ramirez will join the team for a workout Wednesday in Minnesota.Ramirez left the field on a cart Sunday in an alarming scene for the Indians, who will already be without star shortstop Francisco Lindor and second baseman Jason Kipnis. Both players are working back from right calf strains.Ramirez had 39 home runs and 105 RBIs last season, finishing third in AL MVP voting for the second straight year.Cleveland lost to Texas 5-4 on Tuesday in its final spring training game. Mike Clevinger allowed four runs (two earned) in three innings. He walked two, struc... [More]
Tue Mar 2606:17Orioles' Cobb to miss opener, goes on injured list
With opening day just around the corner, the list of notable players who are going to be absent keeps growing.World Series MVP Steve Pearce will start the season on the injured list for the Boston Red Sox, and Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder Steven Souza Jr. went down with a knee injury Monday night when he slipped on home plate.Earlier in the day, Baltimore put scheduled opening-day starter Alex Cobb on the 10-day injured list with a strained right groin.Pearce exited an exhibition game last weekend due to discomfort in his left calf. The right-handed batter normally platoons with lefty-hitting Mitch Moreland at first base, but the Red Sox will begin defense of their championship Thursday in Seattle without Pearce."We have to do it that way," manager Alex Cora said. "It makes sense for us, it makes sense for him. He should be back sooner rather than later but he won't be ready for Seattle, so why take a chance?"Sam Travis will likely make the team and take Pearce's spot on the opening... [More]
Sat Mar 900:10Molina plays for 1st time this spring, Ohtani plays catch
JUPITER, Fla. (AP) — Leaving the clubhouse after his first exhibition game this year, St. Louis catcher Yadier Molina got a fist bump from third baseman Matt Carpenter."It's good to have you back," said Carpenter, one All-Star to another.Molina went 1 for 2 as a designated hitter Friday, the 36-year-old's first game since left knee surgery in mid-December. Molina is likely to be behind the plate on Saturday, catching Adam Wainwright against Houston — about a week ahead of the original projection for him to catch."I can't really tell you how happy I am just to be back with Waino," Molina said.A nine-time All-Star and nine-time Gold Glove, Molina singled through the left side off Washington newcomer Patrick Corbin and scored in a three-run Cardinals' first."Just proves yet again he's a special guy," St. Louis manager Mike Shildt said. "Comes in, first at-bat, gets down 0-2 and battles, battles, battles. It's impressive to see a guy that takes a pro at-bat like that — that can work ... [More]
Tue Feb 2610:39Dodgers meet with Harper, Roberts says it was good session
GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Bryce Harper met with the Los Angeles Dodgers over the weekend, a sign the market for the star free agent might be picking up as spring training enters its second full week.Dodgers manager Dave Roberts confirmed the Sunday night meeting, saying it was "good.""Just trying to get to know each other," Roberts said Monday. "In the spirit of us, as the Dodgers, vetting a certain process makes sense, and for those guys to do their due diligence as well."Roberts declined to comment about possible terms for a contract with Harper, saying "I personally have to focus on the 61 guys that are here."Harper has been connected to the Philadelphia Phillies and the San Francisco Giants during a second consecutive slow free-agent market for the sport. Manny Machado, the other top free agent this winter, signed a $300 million, 10-year deal with the San Diego Padres on Thursday.The 26-year-old Harper was the 2015 NL MVP and made six All-Star teams in seven big league seasons with ...

Mon Feb 1815:32Toles has personal matter, doesn't report to Dodgers
GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Andrew Toles was not at spring training camp for Monday's voluntary full squad reporting day because of an unspecified personal matter.Manager Dave Roberts said there is no timeline for Toles' arrival. The mandatory reporting date is Saturday."We'll get Andrew here when things work out; he works through some personal things," Roberts said Monday. "He has our full support, certainly."Roberts said Toles' absence was surprising."Obviously, things are sometimes unpredictable and family, personal issues obviously have to come before baseball," Roberts said.Toles has a challenge to make the major league roster, even after outfielders Yasiel Puig and Matt Kemp were traded to Cincinnati. Outfielders include A.J. Pollock, Cody Bellinger, Joc Pederson and Alex Verdugo are on the roster, and Chris Taylor and Kike Hernandez could compete for time,The left-handed hitting Toles spent most of last year at Triple-A Oklahoma City, where he batted .306 with seven home runs and 39 RBIs in 71 games. He was the Dodgers' starting left fielder in the second half of 2016 and until May 9 the following year, when he tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his knee.Pederson is aware of speculation he could be traded."I guess it's nice to know that there are some other teams out there that would want you," he said.____More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports
