Mon Sep 1603:37LEADING OFF: Cubs' Rizzo to get MRI, Suárez slugs awayPete AlonsoFree Agent
Ryan BraunLFBrewersFree Agent
A look at what's happening around the majors today:BIG TESTThe Cubs are sending star slugger Anthony Rizzo for an MRI after he sprained his right ankle Sunday, hoping the first baseman can still help with their postseason push. Rizzo was injured fielding a bunt at first base in the third inning during a 16-6 win over Pittsburgh. He had to be helped off the field and could not put pressure on the leg. X-rays taken at Wrigley Field showed no fractures, but Chicago will get a clearer prognosis from the MRI. Chicago's postseason pursuit has already been hindered by an injury to shortstop Javier Báez, who is out for the rest of the regular season with a hairline fracture of his left thumb.SEEING REDEugenio Suárez takes aim at the major league home run lead as the Reds open a series at Wrigley Field. Suárez connected twice Sunday and has 47 for the season, tying him with Mets slugger Pete Alonso for best in the majors. The 28-year-old Suárez has eight homers this month. The last Cincinna...

The Baltimore Orioles might lose 110 games and still not end up with the No. 1 pick in the draft.That race, so to speak, is pretty unforgiving this year.The Orioles (49-100) are in the middle of a four-game series at Detroit (44-104) that matches the teams with the two worst records in baseball. Baltimore won two of the first three, so that leaves the Orioles unlikely to finish behind the Tigers. As far as those two teams have sunk, they figure to have company in the triple-digit-losses club. Miami (52-97) and Kansas City (55-95) are on pace to reach 100 defeats, and Toronto (59-91) could end up there, too.After an age of relative parity, the gap between baseball's top and its bottom has widened.The standings looked a lot different earlier this decade. From 2010 through 2014, only one team reached 100 victories, and from 2014 through 2017, only one team reached 100 losses. (Trivia question: Name the teams.)Now, however, baseball has rebuilding teams aplenty — and juggernauts at the t... [More]

CHICAGO (AP) — Chicago Cubs slugger Anthony Rizzo left Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Pirates in the third inning with a sprained right ankle.X-rays taken at Wrigley Field showed no broken bones. An MRI is scheduled for Monday to determine the severity of the injury.The first baseman suffered the injury while fielding a bunt.With a runner on second and none out, Pirates pitcher Trevor Williams bunted to the third-base side of the mound. Rizzo charged aggressively and rolled the ankle a couple of steps before fielding the ball. He threw wide to first base and then dropped to the ground in obvious pain.Rizzo had to be helped off the field and could put no pressure on his right leg.The injury could be a significant blow to the playoff-contending Cubs, who have already lost shortstop Javier Báez for the season with a fractured left thumb.The 30-year-old Rizzo is hitting .289 with 26 homers and 93 RBIs in 140 games this season.___More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports

WASHINGTON (AP) — Atlanta's Charlie Culberson sustained multiple facial fractures when he was hit by a 91 mph pitch from Washington's Fernando Rodney.Culberson was released from a hospital Saturday and was scheduled for additional examinations on Sunday in Atlanta."The guys that did see him said he looked better than they thought he would this morning," Braves manager Brian Snitker said. "He sounded good, for what he'd been through. It's all very encouraging."Culberson was struck on the right side of his face as he squared to bunt Saturday. Culberson had a towel pressed to his face as he was helped to his feet and taken off the field on the back of a cart.Rodney, who was throwing his first pitch of the game, apologized to the Braves on Sunday."I only saw that I hit him in the face, it was a scary moment for me, the player, for them," Rodney said. "I don't want to hit nobody, no matter where."Washington manager Dave Martinez said he called Snitker on Sunday morning to extend his apologies and express concern for Culberson.___More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports

CLEVELAND (AP) — While they wait for their current closer, the Indians brought up their likely next one.James Karinchak was added to the roster on Friday as Cleveland opened a critical three-game series with the AL Central-leading Minnesota Twins, who lead the Indians by 3½ games.The 23-year-old Karinchak has zoomed through the club's minor-league system, recently pitching in the postseason for Triple-A Columbus.Indians manager Terry Francona said the decision to add Karinchak is not connected to All-Star closer Brad Hand being sidelined for at least the next few days with what the team has called a tired arm.Hand will not pitch against the Twins, and the left-hander said he won't throw again until Sunday at the earliest. He's been struggling for more than a month, with four of his five blown saves coming since July 12 along with a 5.68 ERA in the second half.The Indians sent him home from California on Thursday for an MRI that was clear.Hand said he's never dealt with anything simi...
