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.

MILWAUKEE (AP) — Encouraged by his progress, the Milwaukee Brewers have activated pitcher Jimmy Nelson off the injured list and put him at Triple-A San Antonio.The Brewers made the move Friday.The 29-year-old righty hasn't pitched in the big leagues since September 2017.

CLEVELAND (AP) — The hard cast is off Corey Kluber's broken right arm, providing a dose of positive news for the struggling Indians.Kluber, who may be months away from pitching in a game for Cleveland, said Thursday that he felt relief in having the cast protecting his broken arm removed after a few weeks."I can do a little bit more," said Kluber. "So that's good."The two-time Cy Young winner underwent imaging texts, which showed that his ulna is mending properly."He got what we were expecting," manager Terry Francona said before the opener of a four-game series with Tampa Bay. Francona said the team's medical staff told him Kluber had "expected healing. So, he gets that cast off and he can start doing range of motion. And in two weeks he will be re-examined."The right-hander broke his arm when he was struck flush by a line drive hit by Miami's Brian Anderson on May 1. At the time, the Indians said surgery wasn't needed, and it appears Kluber will be able to avoid an operation.Still,... [More]

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]

Immediately after Martinez got ejected, the Nationals rallied for three runs.After starting the season with postseason aspirations, the Nats entered the game 19-30, a record better than only the Miami Marlins, Baltimore Orioles and Kansas City Royals.___More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports

NEW YORK (AP) — The Mets have added infielders Robinson Canó and Jeff McNeil to the 10-day injured list.Manager Mickey Callaway announced the moves Thursday morning before the finale of a four-game series against the Washington Nationals.Canó strained his left quad running out a grounder in the third inning of a 6-1 win Wednesday night. He had an MRI during the game, which showed a low-grade strain.McNeil has a tight left hamstring, which he thinks occurred while trying to steal second base in the ninth inning of a 6-5 win Tuesday. New York hasn't sent him for any image testing, and Callaway and McNeil described the IL move as precautionary.Luis Guillorme and Ryan O'Rourke were recalled from Triple-A Syracuse.___More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports

Callaway said he addressed the issue, and Canó' did not start Monday against the Nationals.Callaway cited Canó's hustle when he doubled to right-center as a pinch hitter on Monday night and slid into second."I guess he had his fastest time from home to second (in three years), so I'm sure he was aware that he needs to get going a little bit," Callaway said.Canó is batti...

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Very little has slowed the Minnesota Twins of late. A rare Southern California rain shower did the trick Wednesday night.The Twins had their series finale against the Los Angeles Angels postponed because of weather and unplayable field conditions. It has been rescheduled for Thursday.It is only the third postponement at Angel Stadium since 1995 and the 12th since the stadium opened in 1966. The last postponement occurred on July 19, 2015, against Boston.Minnesota is 31-16 and has a seven-game lead over Cleveland in the AL Central, which is the earliest it has been up that much in the division. The previous earliest was June 24, 2002, when they were seven games ahead of the Chicago White Sox.The Twins — who haven't won a division title since 2010 — have taken five of six on this road trip and are trying to get a sweep in Anaheim for the first time since 1996.Manager Rocco Baldelli wasn't thrilled with the decision to postpone the game, but he also said he re...

BALTIMORE (AP) — The Orioles bolstered their outfield defense by acquiring Keon Broxton from the New York Mets on Wednesday for $500,000 in 2019-20 international signing bonus pool allotment.Broxton was designated for assignment last week by the Mets after batting .143 in 34 games with no homers and two RBIs. The Orioles, however, like the idea of having his glove in center field after experimenting with rookie Stevie Wilkerson over the past month."He has speed, excellent center field ability, he's got some raw power," general manager Mike Elias said of Broxton on Wednesday. "We're trying some different things in center field and we wanted to give him a look and hopefully give him a little bit more extended time than he's had."In five years with Milwaukee, Pittsburgh and the Mets, the 29-year-old Broxton has a .216 average with 33 homers and 81 RBIs.
