Jose UrenaSPMarlinsFree Agent
MIAMI (AP) — Marlins right-hander Jose Urena dropped his appeal of a six-game suspension for intentionally hitting Atlanta rookie Ronald Acuna Jr. with a pitch.Urena began serving the suspension Tuesday. The Marlins, fearful the Braves might retaliate, had already decided Urena wouldn't pitch against them during a four-game series later this week."It seems like there's no reason to open that back up," manager Don Mattingly said. "We don't need that."Urena is expected to return at Boston on Aug. 28.He hit Acuna on the left arm with his first pitch, triggering a melee in the Marlins' 5-2 loss in Atlanta last Wednesday. Acuna went into the game having homered in five straight games, including four homers in the three games against Miami — three of them leading off.Acuna left the game injured but was back in the lineup the next day.Urena was ejected. His next start came Sunday, when he pitched a two-hitter for his first career complete game to beat Washington 12-1.___More AP baseball: https://apnews.com/tag/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports

Tue Aug 2118:51Yankees slugger Stanton says he'll enjoy Miami homecomingGiancarlo StantonDH/LF/RFYankeesFree Agent
MIAMI (AP) — Giancarlo Stanton sat in the visitors' dugout before batting practice, which gave him a different angle of Marlins Park's kitschy, colossal home sculpture."I still don't like it," he said with a laugh. "But it won't be going off if I hit one."Stanton activated the moveable sculpture more than any other player before leaving the Marlins, which made Tuesday a homecoming for the New York Yankees slugger in a two-game series in Miami.He was in a genial mood facing a media scrum of three dozen. Speaking of himself in the plural, he said it was weird but good to be back, and said he harbored no hard feelings about the way his time with the Marlins ended after eight seasons."We know what the situation is over there now, and how it was," he said. "We understand."The situation is that former Yankees shortstop and new Marlins CEO Derek Jeter rebooted the woebegone Miami franchise, trading away several big contracts for prospects with the goal of becoming competitive in a few years...

MIAMI (AP) — New York Yankees shortstop Didi Gregorius went on the 10-day disabled list Tuesday, and the injury-plagued playoff contenders are hoping his bruised left heel mends quickly.The roster move, which was announced before a game at Miami, was retroactive to Monday. Gregorius was hurt in a collision Sunday at first base against Toronto."Didi is so important to what we do," manager Aaron Boone said. "He's such an important player to us in the middle of our lineup, in the middle of the field. We'll certainly miss him. But we feel we have the people capable to step up for him while he's down, which is hopefully a short amount of time."Gregorius was feeling better Tuesday, and the swelling had gone down, Boone said. The shortstop is scheduled to see a doctor again Wednesday, which will give the Yankees a better sense of a timetable for his return, Boone said.Infielder Luke Voit was recalled from Triple-A Scranton-Wilkes-Barre. Rookie infielder Gleyber Torres started at shortstop Tuesday.The Yankees already had sluggers Aaron Judge and Gary Sanchez on the disabled list."We've certainly been tested with some of the people we've lost," Boone said. "I also think we've responded pretty well."Gregorius is batting .270 with 22 home runs and 74 RBIs, and has 48 extra-base hits this season.___More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/tag/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports

Stanton, coming off a 59-homer MVP season, wanted no part of a rebuilding project and approved a trade to the Yanks.Now he's likely to make the playoffs for the first time, while the Marlins are headed for a ninth consecutive losing season.Stanton says he wishes the Marlins well and hope they can turn things around in "a couple of years."___More AP baseball: https://apnews.com/tag/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports___Follow Steven Wine on Twitter: http://twitter.com/Steve_Wine.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Essentially throwing in the towel on a disappointing season, the Washington Nationals traded second baseman Daniel Murphy to the Chicago Cubs and first baseman Matt Adams to the St. Louis Cardinals on Tuesday.Despite a roster that boasts such stars as Max Scherzer and Bryce Harper, Washington went into a three-game series at home against Philadelphia with a losing record of 62-63, 7½ games behind the NL East-leading Atlanta Braves.General manager Mike Rizzo and ownership gambled at the July trade deadline, standing pat and expressing faith in the roster as constituted. The Nationals trounced the New York Mets 25-4 that night, but are 9-10 since, including a 2-5 road trip through Chicago and St. Louis that featured a 4-3 loss at Wrigley Field on a two-out, walk-off grand slam."We felt that coming off that road trip and into this most recent homestand was a time that was a litmus test for us ... and we felt that the timing was right to make the vital decisions that w...

DETROIT (AP) — The Chicago Cubs have bolstered their struggling lineup by acquiring second baseman Daniel Murphy in a trade with the Washington Nationals.The Cubs also announced Tuesday that right-hander Yu Darvish will miss the rest of the season after pitching just one inning in a rehab start for Class A South Bend on Sunday.The deal for Murphy comes at an opportune time for NL Central-leading Chicago, which scored just one in each of its previous four games. Third baseman Kris Bryant is on the disabled list with an inflamed left shoulder, and shortstop Addison Russell was scratched from their series opener at Detroit due to right shoulder inflammation.The Cubs brought in Murphy for Class A infielder Andruw Monasterio and a player to be named or cash. The 33-year-old Murphy is batting .340 (35 for 103) since the All-Star break. He has a .413 career batting average at Wrigley Field, according to STATS.___For more AP baseball coverage: https://apnews.com/tag/MLBbaseball

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Khris Davis hit a long home run after letting a young fan from the Make-A-Wish Foundation sign his jersey, Ramon Laureano hit the first two homers of his career, and the Oakland Athletics beat the Texas Rangers 9-0 on Monday night.Davis' shot for his 37th homer of the year was estimated at 438 feet and clanked off a window in the suite-level in left-center field. He did it wearing a uniform signed by 10-year-old Anthony Slocumb. The Oakland sixth-grader attended the game with a group from the Make-A-Wish Foundation, and Davis asked him to sign his jersey before the game.Laureano connected in the second and again in the sixth with a three-run shot that chased Bartolo Colon (7-11), the 45-year-old Rangers starter scratched a day earlier against the Angels because of back stiffness.Stephen Piscotty homered in the seventh and Marcus Semien added an RBI double to back Mike Fiers (9-6) as Oakland matched Houston atop the AL West.INDIANS 5, RED SOX 4BOSTON (AP) — Gr...

LOS ANGELES (AP) — All-Star closer Kenley Jansen has been activated off the disabled list for the Los Angeles Dodgers earlier than expected after being cleared by a cardiologist.Manager Dave Roberts says Jansen is available for Monday night's series opener against St. Louis.Jansen hasn't pitched since Aug. 7 and was on the 10-day DL after being hospitalized for an irregular heartbeat on Aug. 9 when the team was in Denver to play the Rockies.Jansen was initially expected to miss about a month. He was previously treated for an irregular heartbeat in 2011 and 2012. He has said it's likely he'll need offseason surgery to deal with the issue."It's a huge lift," Roberts said. "He's the best in the game, so it changes the way they're (Cardinals) going to manage."Jansen is 0-3 with 32 saves and a 2.15 ERA in 51 games. The Dodgers' bullpen has a 5.17 ERA since Jansen went out.___More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/tag/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports
