Tue May 2115:22Dodgers' Urías reinstated from administrative leaveClayton KershawSPDodgersFree Agent
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Julio Urías was reinstated Tuesday from administrative leave by Major League Baseball.Urías was placed on leave while MLB officials looked into his May 13 arrest for investigation of misdemeanor domestic battery. Police said Urías was taken into custody in the parking lot of a Los Angeles shopping mall but didn't release details.The leave lasted seven days as originally announced. In previous MLB investigations, management and the players' association agreed to extend leaves while probes continued.MLB and the union agreed to a domestic violence policy in 2015, giving the commissioner the right to investigate and impose discipline.Urías, a 22-year-oldn left-hander from Culiacan, Mexico, began the season in the starting rotation but moved to the bullpen once Clayton Kershaw came off the injured list.To make room on the roster for Urías, outfielder Kyle Garlick was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Tuesday.___More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports

NEW YORK (AP) — The traditional rivalry between the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox will take a radical twist when they meet in London next month: They will play on artificial turf for the first time in more than 2,200 games over a century.Major League Baseball has access to Olympic Stadium for 21 days before the games on June 29 and 30, the sport's first regular-season contests in Europe, and just five days after to clear out.

NEW YORK (AP) — So much for burying the hatchet.New York Mets third baseman Todd Frazier and Washington outfielder Adam Eaton had a heated exchange between innings that was caught by a television camera Monday night at Citi Field.The two players jawed at each other from a distance, prompting several Nationals to take a few steps out of the dugout before Frazier and Eaton were guided in opposite directions. Eaton took his position in right field, and Frazier was led back to the Mets bench on the first base side.The two were teammates with the Chicago White Sox in 2016 but apparently have an acrimonious history."He's chirping all the way across the infield. I don't know. He must really like me because he wants to get my attention it seems like every time we come here to town. He really cares what I think about him, I guess. I don't know what the deal is," Eaton said following New York's 5-3 victory over the Nationals. "He's always yelling across the infield at me. He's made a habit of ... [More]

NEW YORK (AP) — Turns out Yoenis Céspedes took the fall, not Mickey Callaway.On a hectic afternoon at Citi Field, the slumping New York Mets announced Monday they are sticking with their embattled manager "for the foreseeable future" — and Céspedes broke his right ankle in an accident on his ranch.The oft-injured slugger has been sidelined most of the past two seasons and was home recovering from surgery on both heels. New York had hoped he could return sometime after the All-Star break, but this latest setback certainly puts Céspedes' entire season, and perhaps his career, in jeopardy.General manager Brodie Van Wagenen said the team was informed Saturday night that Céspedes sustained multiple ankle fractures on his ranch in Port St. Lucie, Florida, where the club's spring training complex is located."He had a violent fall in which he stepped in a hole and put his leg and foot in a difficult position," said Van Wagenen, who was Céspedes' agent before becoming GM of the Mets la...

A look at what's happening around the majors Tuesday:LOOKING FOR SIXYankees right-hander Domingo Germán (8-1, 2.50 ERA) seeks to win his sixth consecutive start on Tuesday night against the last-place Orioles.The major league leader in victories, Germán has a chance to join Tommy John (1979), Herb Pennock (1926) and Jack Chesbro (1904) as the only Yankees to notch nine wins by the end of May.It's pretty heady stuff for a 26-year-old who entered the season with a 2-7 career record.Baltimore will counter with rookie Davis Hess (1-5, 5.58), who has gone seven straight starts without a victory, including two losses to New York during that span.STREAKINGHouston ace Justin Verlander (7-1, 2.38 ERA) will look for his fourth straight win and the seventh in eight starts when he faces the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday in the second game of a four-game series. Verlander has dominated in his last two outings against Texas and Detroit, allowing one run and three hits while striking out 17 in 14 in... [More]

Stanton homered as he started a minor league injury rehabilitation assignment and Judge threw on the field before New York's game at Baltimore.Playing against Detroit Tigers minor leaguers and in front of Yankees owner Hal Steinbrenner, Gregorius singled twice and cleanly fielded three grounders but had an error for an errant throw to first base.Gregorius is coming back from surgery to a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow.

CHICAGO (AP) — Cubs closer Brandon Morrow has started throwing again after experiencing a setback in his recovery from offseason elbow surgery.President of baseball operations Theo Epstein says Morrow threw from 45 to 60 feet Monday in Arizona.The Cubs shut down Morrow's rehab last month after he didn't recover well from a bullpen session.

ATLANTA (AP) — The Braves have added veteran help for their patchwork bullpen by acquiring right-hander Anthony Swarzak from Seattle for left-hander Jesse Biddle and right-hander Arodys Vizcaino.As part of Monday's trade, Seattle is sending Atlanta $1,788,172 to cover about one-third of the $5,677,419 remaining in Swarzak's $8 million salary this year.Vizcaino opened the season as Atlanta's closer, then had season-ending surgery on his right shoulder on April 17. His replacement, A.J. Minter, struggled and was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on May 10.The 27-year-old Biddle was designated for assignment by the Braves on Wednesday after walking 10 batters in 11 2/3 innings. He had a 5.40 ERA as he failed to repeat his success from 2018, when he was 6-1 with a 3.11 ERA. He will report to the Mariners.Luke Jackson has six saves in nine chances as the Braves' latest closer.The 33-year-old Swarzak has a 5.27 ERA and three saves in six chances this season for the Mariners. He had an 8.64 ERA in his last nine appearances. Swarzak was successful in four of five saves chances and had a 6.15 ERA with the Mets in 2018.Swarzak was acquired by Seattle on Dec. 8 along with outfielder Jay Bruce, right fielder Gerson Bautista and a pair of minor leaguers for second baseman Robinson Canó and All-Star closer Edwin Diaz.___For more AP baseball coverage: https://apnews.com/apf-Baseball and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports

Take away George Springer and Jose Altuve, and maybe the Houston Astros start to look a little more beatable.Maybe.The Boston Red Sox finally snapped Houston's 10-game winning streak Sunday with a 4-3 victory after Springer left the game with lower back stiffness. The Astros were already playing without Altuve, on the injured list with a strained left hamstring, but that injury did little to slow Houston. Even after Sunday's loss, the Astros have the best record and best run differential in the major leagues. They lead the AL West by 8 ½ games.Altuve hasn't played since May 10, so Houston's recent torrid stretch took place largely without him. That's a scary thought for the rest of the American League. In their first four games without their star second baseman, the Astros scored 45 runs against the Rangers and Tigers."Our guys are seeing the ball really well and making it tough on them," Houston manager AJ Hinch said while the Astros were in Detroit. "Driving the pitch counts through... [More]
