TORONTO (AP) — Blue Jays prospect Cavan Biggio, the son of Hall of Famer Craig Biggio, was brought up by Toronto on Friday and made his major league debut against San Diego.Biggio was in the lineup, batting eighth and playing second base, the position where his father won four Gold Glove awards playing for Houston. The elder Biggio was in Toronto to attend his son's debut.The younger Biggio went 0 for 3 and struck out twice as the Blue Jays lost 6-3 to the Padres.Toronto last month gave a debut to the son of a Hall of Famer, and third baseman Vladimir Guerrero Jr. has become a regular starter. Among the Blue Jays top minor league prospects is Bo Bichette, whose father Dante played in the majors.A fifth-round pick in the 2016 amateur draft, Cavan Biggio hit .307 with six homers and 26 RBIs in 42 games at Triple-A.Biggio was one of four players to join the Blue Jays on Friday. Toronto recalled infielder/outfielder Lourdes Gurriel Jr., and left-hander Thomas Pannone from Triple-A, and added lefty Zac Rosscup, who was claimed on waivers from Seattle on Thursday.Biggio's contract was selected from Buffalo of the International League, and outfielder Billy McKinney and infielder Richard Ureña were optioned to Triple-A. Left-handed knuckleballer Ryan Feirabend was designated for assignment and right-hander Elvis Luciano was placed on the bereavement list.___More AP baseball: https://apnews.com/tag/MLBbaseball and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports

NEW YORK (AP) — Looking to replenish their depth, the banged-up New York Mets agreed to minor league contracts Friday with veteran outfielder Matt Kemp and pitcher Ervin Santana.Each move is pending a successful physical, and both players are expected to report to the club's spring training complex in Port St. Lucie, Florida.The 34-year-old Kemp, who made his third All-Star team last season with the Los Angeles Dodgers, was released May 4 by Cincinnati. He batted .200 with a home run and five RBIs for the Reds and had been sidelined since April 23 with a broken left rib."Obviously, still pretty high ceiling," Mets manager Mickey Callaway said following a 9-8 loss to Detroit. "He's been playing well the last couple years. He had a good year very recently. So we're going to send him down to Florida, very similar to Santana, and get him in playing shape and see what we've got.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo says second-year manager Dave Martinez's job is safe for now despite Washington's sluggish start to the season.The Nationals have lost five straight and entered Friday at 19-31, better than only the Miami Marlins, Kansas City Royals and Baltimore Orioles.Rizzo says there is blame to go around. Asked specifically about his confidence in Martinez, he says "we're not making any decisions with a third of the season gone.""We've got a lot of season left. Davey's not happy with what's going on. Nobody's happy with what's going on — the fanbase, the ownership, and myself," he added.The team has dealt with injures to star hitters Anthony Rendon, Trea Turner, Juan Soto and Ryan Zimmerman, but the biggest culprit has been the poor bullpen.Washington has the highest bullpen ERA in the majors at 7.02 and leads the NL with 10 blown saves."Lot of people in this group right here that predicted us to win 90, 92 games and win the division and the World Series," Rizzo said in explaining why he's willing to stand pat. "That was our expectation coming into this, and a third into the season I'm certainly not going to pull the pin on that and blow it up."___More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports

NEW YORK (AP) — Dave Martinez's theatrical exit brought life to Washington's bats Thursday, sparking a late rally against the New York Mets.Nothing seems to be able to solve the club's bullpen woes, though, and that has the Nationals' second-year manager working from a wobbly seat.Martinez was ejected in the eighth inning of a 6-4 loss to the New York Mets, making quite a scene at the onset of a three-run, eighth-inning comeback by the Nats that was undone by yet another blown save.Plate umpire Bruce Dreckman rang up Washington's Howie Kendrick for a strikeout as he tried to check his swing, then tossed the veteran player. Martinez charged from the dugout, spiked his hat and kicked dirt on home plate during an extended, heated argument."I just didn't think he swung," Martinez said. "We just got into it. All I did was tell him to ask for help. That's why the first base umpire is there. He didn't like it."Washington trailed 3-1 at the time and had already lost four in a row. Immediatel... [More]
