Amed RosarioSSMetsFree Agent
ATLANTA (AP) — Colorado snapped Ronald Acuna Jr.'s home run streak and Atlanta's five-game winning streak, rallying for three unearned runs in the ninth inning to beat the Braves 5-3 on Thursday night.David Dahl homered in the third and capped the winning rally with a two-out, two-run single off Brad Brach (1-3). The Rockies took advantage of an error by shortstop Danby Swanson leading off the ninth to win for the fifth time in six games.One night after being plunked in the left arm by Miami's Jose Urena, Acuna was back in the lineup looking to extend his homer streak to six games. Wearing a red protective guard, the 20-year-old slugger received a standing ovation his first time up and lined the second pitch — one more than he saw the previous game — into center field for a single, extending his hitting streak to nine games.That was the highlight of his night. Acuna finished 1 for 4, lining out to right in the eighth in his last chance to become the first player in Braves franchi... [More]

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Texas Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre is still out of the lineup because of his troublesome left hamstring, but still on the active roster and hoping to avoid a third trip to the disabled list this season."That's the question right now. We want to wait a couple days," the 39-year-old Beltre said Thursday.Beltre aggravated the hamstring Monday night when scoring from second base on a bloop single to left-center field. The active career hits leader didn't play Tuesday night before the Rangers had a day off."Medically, it's a grade 2 (strain). But physically, I don't feel that bad," Beltre said before the opener of a four-game series against the Los Angeles Angels."It's not something that's going to take you six weeks to get back. Hopefully, in the next couple days, it'll show some improvement. If it's going to 10 days (on the DL), just 10 days."The Rangers activated right fielder Nomar Mazara from the 10-day disabled list. He hadn't played since the All-Star... [More]

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Chicago Cubs right-hander Yu Darvish will begin a rehab assignment Sunday with a minor league team to be determined.Signed to a $126-million, six-year contract as a free agent in February, Darvish last pitched for the Cubs on May 20 and is 1-3 with a 4.95 ERA in eight starts. He has been sidelined with right triceps tendinitis and an impingement in his right shoulder.Darvish made a rehab start June 25 with Class A South Bend but then felt pain in his arm afterward."I talked to Yu today and he was very optimistic," Cubs manager Joe Maddon said Thursday night before the Cubs played the Pittsburgh Pirates.Maddon would not speculate how many starts Darvish will need to be ready to come off the disabled list."I would say three would the maximum," Maddon said. "I would think by three starts that he would be dialed in."___More AP baseball: https://apnews.com/tag/MLBbaseball and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports

NEW YORK (AP) — Los Angeles outfielder Yasiel Puig has been suspended for two games and fined an undisclosed fine for fighting and inciting a bench-clearing incident against San Francisco.Major League Baseball announced the sanctions Thursday, two days after the Cuban player took a swing at Giants catch Nick Hundley in the seventh inning of the Dodgers' 2-1 home loss. Hundley also was fined.Barring an appeal, Puig is scheduled to begin the suspension Friday at Seattle.The fracas started when Puig swatted his bat in frustration after fouling off a pitch from Tony Watson, and Hundley said something to the slugger while still in his crouch. Puig turned around and walked toward Hundley, the catcher stood up, and they argued face to face before Puig shoved Hundley twice.That brought players out of the benches and bullpens. Puig and Hundley were momentarily separated, but Puig ducked around teammates, coaches and manager Dave Roberts before reaching back to hit Hundley. He smacked Hundley with an open hand across the front of his catcher's mask. Dodgers coach George Lombard was trying to push Hundley away when Puig took his swing. Lombard and Hundley briefly ended up on the grass. After the players were separated for good, the umpires ejected Puig and Hundley.Puig also got into a skirmish with Giants pitcher Madison Bumgarner in 2014.___More AP baseball: https://apnews.com/tag/MLBbaseball and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports

CHICAGO (AP) — The Milwaukee Brewers are casting doubt on Jimmy Nelson's chances of returning this season.Nelson had shoulder surgery last September after he got hurt diving back to first after rounding the base on a single. It was a tough conclusion to a breakout year for the right-hander, who went 12-6 with a 3.49 ERA in 29 starts.The 29-year-old Nelson has been working out, but he is running out of time."Jimmy pitching for us this year is unlikely," manager Craig Counsell said before Wednesday's 8-4 loss to the Chicago Cubs. "And that's not due to a setback of any nature. That's just due to the pace of his rehab right now.

OAKLAND, Calif.
