Jason VargasSPMetsFree Agent
ATLANTA (AP) — New York Mets manager Mickey Callaway says the team hasn't made a decision on what to do with struggling pitcher Matt Harvey.Harvey was tagged Thursday night for six runs in six innings of a 12-4 loss to the Atlanta Braves. After the game, the former ace took a firm stand against a possible move to the bullpen.Asked Friday about Harvey's future, Callaway said, "I think he made that pretty clear yesterday, that he wants to be a starter, and I don't blame him. I think everyone wants to start. What we are trying to do as a team is do what's best for the team and for the players."Harvey is 0-2 with a 6.00 ERA in four starts this year."I'm a starting pitcher," Harvey said after Thursday's game. "I've always been a starting pitcher. That's my mindset."Callaway said he'd like for a player to support a new role. He said that agreement is not necessary for a change to be made."Ideally you get buy-in," the first-year manager said. "But sometimes decisions are decisions and peopl... [More]

CLEVELAND (AP) — Former Indians slugger Mike Napoli will have season-ending knee surgery after getting hurt in the minors.Napoli tore his right anterior cruciate ligament this week while playing for Triple-A Columbus.

Napoli set career highs with 34 homers and 101 RBIs for Cleveland and was invaluable as a clubhouse leader for manager Terry Francona.Francona believes Napoli still has a future in baseball, in spite of the injury."You don't wish that on anybody," Francona said before the Indians faced the Orioles in Baltimore. "I do think he's smart enough to know that once he gets through this disappointment, he's going to impact somebody, somewhere. Hope it's here."As good a player as he was, he might impact the game more in his second career. I'm... [More]

SEATTLE (AP) — The Mariners turned a triple play against the Houston Astros more likely to be seen in a Little League game than the major leagues.Seattle recorded the three outs on one play in the fourth inning in Thursday's 9-2 loss to the Astros."That was an ugly play and not something we want to see happen," Houston manager A.J. Hinch said.With runners at first and second and no outs, Evan Gattis hit a check-swing ground ball to third base. Kyle Seager stepped on third and threw to second base to force Carlos Correa.Gattis finished running to first but turned to jog back to the dugout. Seager noticed what was happening, and Robinson Cano threw to Daniel Vogelbach, who applied the tag.Gattis said it wasn't because he forgot how many outs there were."I was really mad at the pitch I swung at and was really mad about grounding into a double play. I don't really know why I started running to the dugout," Gattis said. "At the time I wanted to laugh on the inside because of how stupid it was but it was a 0-0 game. ... I think I got so mad I couldn't think straight."It was the 12th triple play turned by Seattle and first since 2015. The Astros last had a triple play turned against them in 2016 versus the Chicago White Sox. Before the 2016, Houston had not hit into a triple play since 1989.___More AP baseball: https://apnews.com/tag/MLBbaseball

MILWAUKEE (AP) — After facing Giancarlo Stanton for the first time, the Miami Marlins got to take on Christian Yelich.Stanton was dealt to the New York Yankees during the Marlins' offseason teardown, and Yelich was sent to the Milwaukee Brewers. Dee Gordon and Marcell Ozuna also were jettisoned as part of the payroll purge under new CEO Derek Jeter."He's a great kid," Marlins manager Don Mattingly said ahead of Thursday's series opener against the Brewers. "I loved having him. He can really hit. He'll be a handful to get out."Milwaukee sent top prospect, Lewis Brinson and three other minor leaguers to the Marlins in January for Yelich, a Gold Glove winner in 2014.Yelich started 10 for 27, then hurt an oblique and went on the disabled list. He returned Wednesday and went 1 for 2."It was definitely frustrating but those things happen," Yelich said. "We've got guys who were able to step in and we were able to win some games. It's good to be back. I'm looking forward to being out there."Yelich and center fielder Lorenzo Cain, who signed a free agent, were together in the batting order for the first time since April 4.___More AP baseball: https://apnews.com/tag/MLBbaseball
