CLEVELAND (AP) — Francisco Lindor missed all the little moments. The big ones, too."Every pitch. Every out. Every celebration after every win," the Cleveland Indians' All-Star shortstop said. "It was everything equally."Sidelined for the season's first 18 games, Lindor was activated from the injured list Saturday before a doubleheader against the Atlanta Braves. Lindor had been out since spraining his left ankle while running the bases near the end of spring training as he was rehabbing a right calf sprain.For the 25-year-old, the time away from his teammates and a season's subtle moments was difficult."Missing the flights.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — The Boston Red Sox placed right-hander Nathan Eovaldi on the 10-day injured list on Saturday because of an elbow injury.The team, which made the move retroactive to Thursday, said Eovaldi has two "loose bodies" in his right elbow. He has had two Tommy John operations and also had surgery last year to remove loose bodies in the elbow."It's just frustrating when you're coming off a good outing and you're taking the right steps forward, and you have to have this and you just can't throw," said Eovaldi, who informed the Red Sox on Thursday night that he could not straighten his right arm.He had pitched six innings against the New York Yankees on Wednesday night.Eovaldi and Dave Dombrowski, Red Sox president of baseball operations, said the injury appears to be similar to the one that sidelined the pitcher for the first two months of 2018.It has yet to be determined whether more surgery is the best option."Don't know until the doctor takes a look at it," Dombro...

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Toronto Blue Jays starter Matt Shoemaker had to be helped off the field after injuring his left knee during a rundown in the third inning Saturday against the Oakland Athletics.Shoemaker gave up a two-out single to Matt Chapman, then bounced a pitch to Stephen Piscotty. As Chapman strayed off the bag, Toronto catcher Luke Maile threw to first baseman Rowdy Tellez. Tellez ran after Chapman and threw to second baseman Eric Sogard, who threw back to Shoemaker.The 32-year-old pitcher chased down Chapman to apply the tag and spun around to avoid contact. As he twirled, Shoemaker appeared to injure his knee. He hopped around before falling to the ground as a team trainer rushed out. Shoemaker was down for several moments before being helped to his feet and off the field. The team later said his knee was being evaluated.Shoemaker is off to a 3-0 start with a 1.75 ERA after missing five months of 2018 with a right forearm strain.Sam Gaviglio warmed up to replace Shoemaker.___More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports

NEW YORK (AP) — Chicago White Sox shortstop Tim Anderson didn't go into detail Friday about what he said during a bench-clearing fracas with Kansas City earlier in the week after a report that he directed a racial slur at Royals pitcher Brad Keller.Anderson was suspended one game for his actions Wednesday. Tempers flared after Keller hit Anderson, who had celebrated an earlier home run, with a fastball. Keller was penalized five games by Major League Baseball and is appealing.ESPN, citing unidentified sources , said Anderson, who is black, called Keller, who is white, the N-word during the fray.Anderson, the AL's top hitter this season, declined to discuss what was said on the field. He sat out Friday night's game at Detroit.A person familiar with the penalty told The Associated Press that Anderson's suspension was the result of his language, which was included in the umpires' postgame report. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because that detail was not made public."We're ... [More]
