OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — After three years of missing the playoffs and dealing away fan favorites like Yoenis Cespedes, Josh Donaldson and Sonny Gray, the Oakland Athletics are trying to steer themselves in the opposite direction.They certainly took a significant step Saturday by acquiring New York Mets reliever Jeurys Familia to bolster a bullpen that includes All-Star closer Blake Treinen."You always want to be in this position where you're potentially adding," A's manager Bob Melvin said. "We've had three years where it's been just the opposite. Three weeks ago, maybe this isn't a conversation. But the way the team's played in the last month put us in a position to be able to do something like this."New York gets two minor leaguers for its closer, Triple-A right-hander Bobby Wahl and Class A third baseman Will Toffey, and $1 million in international signing bonus pool allotment.

MILWAUKEE (AP) — Milwaukee Brewers reliever Josh Hader has received a warm ovation from fans in his first appearance on the mound since his years-old racist and homophobic tweets surfaced during the All-Star Game.The left-hander jogged in from the bullpen after the Brewers scored three runs in the bottom of the sixth to take a 4-2 lead over the Los Angeles Dodgers. He took a few warmup tosses before being introduced by the public address announcer.Most of the more than 36,000 fans attending in attendance were applauding after he was introduced, with many fans standing at Miller Park.Hader struck out pinch-hitter Logan Forsythe for the first out in the seventh. He allowed a two-out double to Matt Kemp before getting out of the inning when cleanup hitter Max Muncy lined out to first.___More AP baseball: https://apnews.com/tag/MLBbaseball

PHOENIX (AP) — Colorado Rockies second baseman DJ LeMahieu was placed on the 10-day disabled list Saturday because off a strained left oblique.LeMahieu left Friday's game against the Arizona Diamondbacks in the fourth inning with the injury. It's his third stint on the DL this season after he injured his left thumb in May, after having never been on the disabled list before this season."He's sore today," Rockies manager Bud Black said. "Any strain, whether it's a hamstring strain or an oblique, any sort of muscle pull, there's different severities and different degrees. Just from his, how the trainers were moving him, this doesn't seem to be at the high end of that. We're encouraged by that, even though it's going to be a few weeks."The two-time All-Star is hitting .278 with 84 hits, eight home runs and 34 runs batted in in 72 games this season. The Rockies called up infielder Garrett Hampson from Triple-A Albuquerque and designated infielder Daniel Castro for assignment before Saturday's game.Hampson was in the starting lineup for Colorado at second base against Arizona.

MILWAUKEE (AP) — The Milwaukee Brewers have activated Ryan Braun from the 10-day disabled list after the outfielder was sidelined by a strained back.Braun returns to a team that has lost seven straight and fallen three games behind of the first-place Cubs in the NL Central. He was hitting cleanup Saturday against the Dodgers and left-handed ace Clayton Kershaw.Braun is hitting just .235 with 10 homers and 35 RBIs. Manager Craig Counsell says he expects Braun to improve after the outfielder had some bad luck at the plate in the season's first half.The banged-up Brewers are slowly getting healthier, with starting catcher Manny Pina returning from DL on Friday from a left biceps strain. Outfielder-first baseman Eric Thames (right hamstring) and starter Junior Guerra (right forearm) are among other key players on the disabled list.Catcher Jacob Nottingham was optioned to Triple-A Colorado Springs to make room for Braun.___More AP baseball: https://apnews.com/tag/MLBbaseball

CHICAGO (AP) — The St. Louis Cardinals placed right-hander Carlos Martinez on the 10-day disabled list before Saturday's doubleheader against the Chicago Cubs.Martinez, who has dropped his last two starts, has a right oblique strain. The move is retroactive to Friday, a day after Martinez struggled through five innings in a 9-6 loss to the Cubs."It's possible in a different situation we would have held off on the DL and seen how he reacted," general manager Michael Girsch said. "But given the doubleheader and just the innings we're going to need, we decided to go ahead and make a move. We hope it's only one start."St. Louis also activated right-hander Miles Mikolas from the paternity list and recalled reliever John Brebbia from Triple-A Memphis. Right-hander Luke Weaver was brought up from Memphis to serve as the 26th man for the day-night doubleheader at Wrigley Field.The Cardinals created a roster spot when they optioned reliever Matt Bowman to Triple-A Memphis following their 18-5 win on Friday.Weaver is to start Game 1 of the doubleheader.
