Boone slotted Judge to bat second and play right field, but only because the late start gave him and the front office a few extra hours to evaluate Judge."I just voiced my opinion — a lot," Judge said with a grin. "And they kind of got tired of me telling them I would be playing, so they finally said, 'Let's just put him in there and see what happens.'"Judge went 0 for 4, including a pop fly to the warning track in the right field ...

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Colorado slugger Trevor Story has inflammation in his right elbow, but there's no structural damage and the Rockies are hopeful he can return to the lineup in a few days.The All-Star shortstop tweaked his elbow on a throw in the first inning of an 8-2 loss to the Dodgers on Monday night and aggravated it on a swing in the fourth.Rockies manager Bud Black says tests on Tuesday produced "good results." He says Story has soreness around his joint, but his ligament appears to be in good shape.Black says Story experiences some stress when he swings and throws, but if the inflammation goes down he should be playing again in a few days.Colorado began Tuesday a half-game behind the NL West-leading Dodgers.Story this year became the first shortstop in major league history with at least 40 doubles, 30 home runs and 25 steals in a season.___More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/tag/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports

CLEVELAND (AP) — White Sox All-Star slugger Jose Abreu remains hospitalized with an infection in his right thigh.Abreu was admitted on Tuesday to a hospital in Cleveland and had the infection "cleaned up," manager Rick Renteria said before the White Sox opened a three-game series with the Indians.Abreu will miss this series and the team will provide an update on him Friday in Chicago, the manager said. The White Sox open a three-game series with the Cubs on Friday.The 31-year-old first baseman was picked for his second All-Star team this year. He needs three home runs to become the ninth player in major league history to hit at least 25 homers in each of his first five seasons.Abreu is batting .265 with 22 homers and 78 RBIs in 128 games. He spent three weeks on the disabled list (Aug. 22-Sept. 9) after undergoing surgery to repair a testicular torsion. He was activated on Sept. 10 and is hitless in his last 20 at-bats."Jose is fine, he's doing well," Renteria said. "It's been a tough year for him with various things, but he's dealing with it the best he can."The Cuban-born Abreu has been durable, playing in at least 145 games in each of his previous four seasons. He's also hit at least 25 homers and driven in 100 runs since signing with the White Sox in 2014.___More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/tag/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports

NEW YORK (AP) — Left-hander Justus Sheffield was put on the roster by the New York Yankees and could make his major league debut this week.The 22-year-old Sheffield was 6-4 with a 2.56 ERA in 15 starts and five relief appearances for Triple-A Scranton Wilkes/Barre this year after going 1-2 with a 2.25 ERA in five starts for Double-A Trenton. New York moved him to the bullpen in late August as preparation for a possible callup as a reliever."I know that early on it was kind of rocky just because getting the routine down was a little hard," Sheffield said of the bullpen move. "But I'm feeling comfortable."Sheffield was selected by Cleveland with the 31st overall pick in the 2014 amateur draft and was acquired by the Yankees in the July 2016 trade that sent left-hander Andrew Miller to the Indians."He's someone that potentially gives us a little bit of length," manager Aaron Boone said. "He's not built up like he was a starter for most of the season, but he's still a guy that we feel like could give us a couple of innings if we needed it."Outfielder Clint Frazier, also obtained by New York in that trade, was transferred to the 60-day disabled list to open a spot for Sheffield, whose contract was selected to the 40-man roster. Frazier has been bothered by a concussion since spring training.New York also recalled right-hander Domingo German from Scranton before Tuesday's series opener against Boston.___More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/tag/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports

CLEVELAND (AP) — Trevor Bauer threw to hitters for the first time since breaking his right leg last month and hopes to be back on the mound for Cleveland in time for the postseason.The right-hander pitched three simulated innings of about 17-to-19 pitches per inning and jokingly told manager Terry Francona he was available against the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday night."I'm glad he feels that way," Francona said. "I don't think that's going to happen, but it's nice to hear him say that."Bauer is 12-6 with a 2.22 ERA in 25 starts. He has been sidelined since he was struck on the lower leg by a line drive off the bat of Chicago's Jose Abreu on Aug. 11.He pitched to Indians reserves Eric Haase, Adam Rosales and Brandon Barnes."The biggest takeaway is that I was able to completely focus on competing instead of being worried about or noticing if there's any discomfort," Bauer said. "I didn't really think about it at all, and that's the most important thing."Bauer hopes to pitch in a game before the regular season ends Sept. 30. Francona said a meeting will be held with Bauer and the team's medical staff."The quicker we can get him in a game without risk the better," Francona said.Indians president of baseball operations Chris Antonetti says the team has discussed using Bauer as a reliever in the postseason.___More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/tag/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports

Milwaukee stayed 2½ games behind the first-place Chicago Cubs in the NL Central and maintained a three-game lead in the wild-card race.Yelich singled in the first inning, doubled in the second, launched a two-run homer in the fifth and completed the cycle with a two-run triple in the sixth. With the Brewers nursing a large lead, he was lifted for a pinch-hitter in the eighth.Yelich's huge second half has turned him into a top contender for the NL MVP award. He also hit for the cycle when he went 6 for 6 in a 13-12 comeback victory on Aug. 29 at Cincinnati, making him the fifth player... [More]
