ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Mike Scioscia says he would like to keep managing next year.The longtime skipper of the Los Angeles Angels has been widely expected to step down after the regular season concludes this week. His comments to KLAA-AM radio Monday night suggested he is open to returning for a 20th season in the Angels' dugout, or perhaps a managing job elsewhere in baseball.When asked directly if he wanted to keep managing, Scioscia said: "I'd like to.""We'll continue to evaluate things this week," Scioscia added. "I'll speak with (Angels owner) Arte (Moreno) and speak with (general manager) Billy (Eppler), and kind of come to a decision. But I think that if you love something, you want to continue to keep doing it. If you can, great. And if it doesn't happen, so be it. But I love the dugout."Scioscia, who will turn 60 in November, is the longest-tenured manager in the majors by seven seasons, and he earned his 1,600th career victory earlier this year.

SEATTLE (AP) — Mariners teammates stood and applauded and "God Bless America" played on speakers when Felix Hernandez entered Seattle's clubhouse after becoming a U.S. citizen.A native of Venezuela, the 32-year-old pitcher passed his citizenship interview Monday and was among 74 people from 36 countries who became naturalized U.S. citizens during a ceremony in downtown Seattle."This country has given me everything," Hernandez said. "It's a dream come true. It means a lot. We've been here a long time. I wanted to do it."Strife in Venezuela is among the reasons Hernandez desired U.S. citizenship. He wants to bring his parents to the U.S. more easily."The situation in Venezuela is real bad now," Hernandez said. "It's tough. There are people who can't get any food. It's crazy."His wife, Sandra, became a U.S. citizen a month ago, but Hernandez didn't pass his test that day. Hernandez said she gave him a hard time about it."I didn't study," he said.

It's a big step to go forward."He is hitting .268 with a career-high 27 homers and 86 RBIs. The 28-year-old had a cortisone shot and will be examined by team doctors Wednesday."He felt significantly better with some of the range of motion things he's able to do," Yankees manager Aaron Boone said. "I would also temper it. The true indicator will come Wednesday when he's re-evaluated and we see how he does."Slick-fielding but weak-hitting Adeiny Hechavarria started at second in Monday's series opener. Rookie Gleyber Torres slide over from second and be replaced there by Neil Walker.Also, Boone said he is not close to deciding on his started for the wild-card game from among J.A Happ, Masahiro Tanaka and Luis Severino.Severino starts Tuesday followed by Tanaka and CC Sabathia.

DENVER (AP) — Colorado Rockies All-Star Trevor Story returned to the starting lineup after missing a week with inflammation in his right elbow.The slugging shortstop batted fifth in the order Monday night as the playoff-chasing Rockies open a four-game series against the Philadelphia Phillies. Story tweaked his elbow on a throw in the first inning Sept. 17 in Los Angeles and aggravated it on a swing in the fourth.Although his elbow "feels good," he said he will alter his throwing style by staying over the top to relieve some of the pressure. The elbow doesn't bother him when he swings, he said.Story is hitting .288 with 33 homers and 102 RBIs.The Rockies began Monday trailing the NL West-leading Dodgers by 1½ games.___More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/tag/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports
