CLEVELAND (AP) — The hard cast is off Corey Kluber's broken right arm, providing a dose of positive news for the struggling Indians.Kluber, who may be months away from pitching in a game for Cleveland, said Thursday that he felt relief in having the cast protecting his broken arm removed after a few weeks."I can do a little bit more," said Kluber. "So that's good."The two-time Cy Young winner underwent imaging texts, which showed that his ulna is mending properly."He got what we were expecting," manager Terry Francona said before the opener of a four-game series with Tampa Bay. Francona said the team's medical staff told him Kluber had "expected healing. So, he gets that cast off and he can start doing range of motion. And in two weeks he will be re-examined."The right-hander broke his arm when he was struck flush by a line drive hit by Miami's Brian Anderson on May 1. At the time, the Indians said surgery wasn't needed, and it appears Kluber will be able to avoid an operation.Still,... [More]

NEW YORK (AP) — Dave Martinez's theatrical exit brought life to Washington's bats Thursday, sparking a late rally against the New York Mets.Nothing seems to be able to solve the club's bullpen woes, though, and that has the Nationals' second-year manager working from a wobbly seat.Martinez was ejected in the eighth inning of a 6-4 loss to the New York Mets, making quite a scene at the onset of a three-run, eighth-inning comeback by the Nats that was undone by yet another blown save.Plate umpire Bruce Dreckman rang up Washington's Howie Kendrick for a strikeout as he tried to check his swing, then tossed the veteran player. Martinez charged from the dugout, spiked his hat and kicked dirt on home plate during an extended, heated argument."I just didn't think he swung," Martinez said. "We just got into it. All I did was tell him to ask for help. That's why the first base umpire is there. He didn't like it."Washington trailed 3-1 at the time and had already lost four in a row. Immediatel... [More]

BALTIMORE (AP) — CC Sabathia's ailing right knee landed him on the 10-day injured list Thursday, although the New York Yankees don't expect the star lefty to be sidelined for long.Sabathia has right knee inflammation, a problem he's been dealing with for a long time."This is something we know we're going to face at different times throughout the year with CC," manager Aaron Boone said, "so hopefully it's just something that we can knock out quickly and hopefully just miss a turn."Sabathia pitched five innings against the Baltimore Orioles on Wednesday night and complained about knee soreness after allowing five runs and six hits."It's just hard to land," he said. "It's like a shooting pain goes through every time that I land. So it makes it hard to finish my pitches."The 38-year-old Sabathia said he started feeling knee pain "a few starts ago" but was hopeful a cortisone shot and a few days rest would keep him off the IL."I'll probably take some time just to get the medicine in there...

Callaway said he addressed the issue, and Canó' did not start Monday against the Nationals.Callaway cited Canó's hustle when he doubled to right-center as a pinch hitter on Monday night and slid into second."I guess he had his fastest time from home to second (in three years), so I'm sure he was aware that he needs to get going a little bit," Callaway said.Canó is batti...
