PITTSBURGH (AP) — Josh Harrison has been activated from the disabled list by the Pittsburgh Pirates after missing five weeks with a broken left pinkie, a week less than originally forecast.Harrison started Sunday against San Diego, his first appearance since he was hit by a pitch from Miami's Jose Urena on April 15. The two-time All-Star broke the same bone last September when he was hit by Cincinnati's Tyler Mahle.Right-hander Nick Kingham was optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis to open a roster spot.Pittsburgh went 15-15 while Harrison was out. He was hitting .263 with a .328 on-base percentage as the Pirates primary leadoff hitter, and Adam Frazier and Sean Rodriguez split time in his absence."Adam and Sean have done everything that they could do, but we've missed some production at the top of the lineup," general manager Neal Huntington said,The 26-year-old Kingham is 2-1 with a 3.44 ERA in three starts. The rookie got opportunities due to Joe Musgrove's shoulder injury. Musgrove is expected to make his season debut Friday against St. Louis.___More AP baseball: https://apnews.com/tag/MLBbaseball

ATLANTA (AP) — The Atlanta Braves have released Jose Bautista a month after picking up the veteran slugger and will make Johan Camargo their starting third baseman.General manager Alex Anthopolous said the team made the decision Saturday before Camargo drove in two runs in an 8-1 win over Miami. Camargo, a switch-hitter, will play every day.The 37-year-old Bautista hit .143 with two homers and five RBIs in 12 games with the Braves after having his contract purchased from Triple-A Gwinnett. The six-time All-Star struck out 12 times in 35 at-bats."We agreed, for him, if there wasn't going to be at-bats here and there wasn't going to be playing time here, that it was not right for him," Anthopolous said Sunday.Bautista played outfield during most of his 14-year career, but the Braves signed him to a minor league contract last month, hoping the former Toronto star could add depth to the National League's top-scoring offense and shore up third base.Camargo, a 24-year-old from Panama, was ...

WASHINGTON (AP) — Rich Hill went back on the Los Angeles Dodgers' disabled list, a day after a blister burst on his left middle finger, and ace Clayton Kershaw threw a bullpen session for the first time since getting hurt.Hill lasted just two pitches when he started the second game of a doubleheader against Washington on Saturday."Four weeks is fair to get back on a major league mound," manager Dave Roberts said Sunday.The 38-year-old left-hander also was on the DL because of the blister from April 15 through May 7.Kershaw has been on the DL since May 6 with left biceps tendinitis. He threw about 30 pitches Sunday."It was really encouraging," Roberts said. "Real good intensity."Kershaw used his entire mix of pitches. He will throw another bullpen session before the Dodgers decide the next step in his rehabilitation.Los Angeles recalled ambidextrous reliever Pat Venditte from Oklahoma City to take Hill's roster spot and optioned right-hander Yimi Garcia to the Triple-A farm team. He had been brought up as the 26th man for the doubleheader.___More AP baseball: https://apnews.com/tag/MLBbaseball

A look at what's happening around the majors today:OHTANI TIMEAngels two-way star Shohei Ohtani pitches at home against Tampa Bay. He's 3-1 with a 3.58 ERA in six starts, and struck out 11 Twins in his last outing. The 23-year-old rookie is hitting .321 with six home runs and 17 RBIs in 84 at-bats.STARTING A NEW TREND?Veteran reliever Sergio Romo, who made his first big league start Saturday night, will start for the second straight day for Tampa Bay. It's an unusual move by manager Kevin Cash, who liked the idea of the righty Romo going against the Angels' right-handed hitters at the top of the lineup this weekend. The bold experiment paid off big-time when Romo struck out Zack Cozart, Mike Trout and Justin Upton on 18 pitches to begin the bottom of the first at Anaheim.That was the only inning Romo pitched after 588 relief appearances in a row. Cash says Romo will throw one or two innings in his return as a starter.NOT AGAINThe Dodgers will see how Rich Hill is feeling, a day after t... [More]

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Tampa Bay Rays reliever Sergio Romo played 11 seasons before making his first major league start.Not even 24 hours later, Romo will make his second.Romo will start for the second consecutive day in the finale of a four-game series against the Los Angeles Angels on Sunday, Rays manager Kevin Cash said following a 5-3 win on Saturday night."I'm sure it will be talked about, but hopefully it works," Cash said.Romo struck out all three batters he faced in the first inning, using 18 pitches to fan Zack Cozart, Mike Trout and Justin Upton.Cash said Romo would have continued pitching if not for Daniel Robertson's grand slam in the second inning. Instead, Cash decided to take advantage of the 4-0 lead and immediately turn to rookie left-hander Ryan Yarbrough, who gave up one run in 6 1/3 innings.Cash's plan going into the game was to minimize the number of times Yarbrough would have to face the heart of an Angels' lineup heavy on right-handed batters."Try not to read t...

Sun May 2001:16Dodgers' Rich Hill has no solution for recurring blisterRich HillSPDodgersFree Agent
WASHINGTON (AP) — Blisters on the middle finger of his pitching hand are nothing new for veteran Dodgers left-hander Rich Hill, but the latest one is worse than usual and he doesn't know how to solve the problem.Hill threw just two pitches against the Washington Nationals on Saturday night before he was pulled with a recurrence of the blister problem that has already put him on the disabled list twice this season."It's frustrating as anything for me. To go out there and put the bullpen and team in this position," Hill said after the Dodgers used seven relievers to piece together a 5-4 win over the Washington Nationals and sweep a doubleheader. "Unfortunately, I don't have answers at this time for the blister issue."Hill said he felt something "break open" on his second-to-last warmup pitch, and his fingernail was broken and bloody when he left the game."Just continued to pitch," he said. "I know at some point I'd have to come out."Blisters have plagued the 38-year-old Hill for the pa... [More]

WASHINGTON (AP) — Matt Kemp had a pinch-hit, two-run double in the ninth inning, and the Los Angeles Dodgers survived a sterling performance by Max Scherzer to beat the Washington Nationals 5-4 on Saturday night and sweep a day-night doubleheader.Scherzer struck out 13 in seven innings, and Washington led 4-3 entering the ninth. But closer Sean Doolittle (1-2) allowed singles to Austin Barnes and Logan Forsythe, and Kemp then hit a line drive to the wall in left field to score them both.Erik Goeddel (3-0) worked a scoreless eighth in his Dodgers debut after being acquired off waivers on Friday from Seattle Mariners. Kenley Jansen worked the ninth for his eighth save, and his second on the day.The Dodgers used eight pitchers.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Nationals have placed veteran Howie Kendrick on the 10-day disabled list with a right Achilles tendon injury.Washington made the announcement Saturday night, about three hours after Kendrick was hurt in the opener of a doubleheader against the Los Angeles Dodgers.Kendrick took an awkward step while retreating to catch a deep flyball to left field in the eighth inning of Washington's 4-1 loss. He winced as he threw the ball and then went to the ground, where a trainer examined his lower right leg. He did not put any weight on the leg and was taken off the field in a cart."It's a huge loss," teammate Bryce Harper said. "Not something you want to see, especially when we need him.

Sat May 1918:46D-Backs will wait until Monday for Souza DL decisionSteven Souza Jr.RFDiamondbacksFree Agent
NEW YORK (AP) — The Arizona Diamondbacks will wait until Monday before deciding whether outfielder Steven Souza Jr. will go back on the disabled list.Souza reinjured his right pectoral muscle on a throw from right field Friday night. He originally hurt the muscle during spring training and didn't start his big league season until May 3.An MRI on Saturday determined he sustained a strain and had inflammation. The images will be sent to Arizona's medical staff to determine whether it occurred in the same spot."Obviously a little more sore than I'd like," he said.Souza thinks he can avoid returning to the DL and said the injury is "nothing like it was obviously back in March."In his first season with Arizona, the 29-year-old is hitting .167 (7 for 42) with one RBI."When I decided to come off the DL, I said I was to play. And so when I say I'm ready to play, I'm not going to use this pec as a crutch for anything," he said.Souza won't play the outfield for the remainder of the series at the New York Mets but hoped to be available as a pinch-hitter.Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo initially described the injury as inflammation; after being told Souza called it a strain, Lovullo confirmed the diagnosis. Lovullo said Souza slipped chasing a ball down the line earlier in the week, starting to cause the tightness."I assured the front office that if we have to, we could play one man down for the next two days," Lovullo said.___More AP baseball: https://apnews.com/tag/MLBbaseball

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Twins lost a key member of their batting order Saturday as first baseman Joe Mauer was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a cervical strain and concussion-like symptoms.The former American League MVP was pulled from Friday's game in the fifth inning with what the team called "neck stiffness" stemming from a dive for a foul ball on May 11.Twins manager Paul Molitor revealed Saturday that Mauer was also experiencing balance issues and sensitivity to light the night prior, which contributed to his removal."We ran through the protocol last night," said Molitor, "and there was no definitive answer there as far as what exactly is ongoing, but given his history ... it looks to me like it's gonna be at least a few days."Mauer suffered a concussion in 2013 that gave him lingering symptoms as he hit below .280 for three seasons in a row.The 35-year-old batted .305 last season and was hitting .283 this year with a .404 on-base percentage.

NEW YORK (AP) — Rookie Tomas Nido has replaced Jose Lobaton as the New York Mets' backup to newly acquired catcher Devin Mesoraco, primarily so he can observe the eight-year veteran.Starter Travis d'Arnaud's season ended after four games because of a torn elbow ligament and backup Kevin Plawecki isn't expected back for at least another week after breaking his left hand on April 11.Nido was brought up when Plawecki got hurt and hit .135 with one RBI in 17 games and 37 at-bats. He was sent back to the minors after the Mets obtained Mesoraco from Cincinnati on April 8 for former ace Matt Harvey."This is a good opportunity for the next week-to-10 days before Plawecki comes back for him to learn a substantial amount that he's not going to learn in the next eight-to-10 days in Triple-A," Mets manager Mickey Callaway said Saturday.Nido, 24, hit .257 with six RBIs in six games at Triple-A Las Vegas of the Pacific Coast League and five at Double-A Binghamton of the Eastern League.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Twins have placed first baseman Joe Mauer on the 10-day disabled list with a cervical strain and concussion-like symptoms.His symptoms began May 11 after he dove for a foul ball against the Los Angeles Angels and worsened during Friday's game.The former American League MVP dealt with long-lasting concussion symptoms after suffering a 2013 concussion, so the Twins opted to be caution with one of their top hitters.Outfielder Jake Cave was called up from Triple-A Rochester to take Mauer's place on the roster in advance of Minnesota's matchup with the Milwaukee Brewers. He was listed seventh in Saturday night's batting order and will play center field.
