AROUND THE HORN

Baltimore Sun - - BASEBALL -

Astros: SS Car­los Cor­rea was sent home from Cleve­land back to Hous­ton be­cause of in­flam­ma­tion in his left shoul­der. Man­ager A.J. Hinch said he was op­ti­mistic the reign­ing AL Rookie of Year would be able to play this week­end when the Astros host the Cubs. Hinch said the team wanted Cor­rea to un­dergo ad­di­tional med­i­cal tests. Cor­rea ex­pe­ri­enced sore­ness in his shoul­der dur­ing Tues­day night’s game in Cleve­land and told Hinch he was un­com­fort­able upon wak­ing Wed­nes­day. He struck out in his three at-bats be­fore sin­gling in the eighth in­ning Tues­day. Cor­rea is bat­ting .274 with 19 home runs, 90 RBIs and 12 stolen bases in 134 games.

Na­tion­als: Hours after he was ac­ti­vated from the dis­abled list, RHP Stephen Stras­burg left in the third in­ning against the Braves. Stras­burg had been side­lined with right el­bow sore­ness. He gave up one run and two hits in 21⁄ in­nings with four strike­outs and no walks, throw­ing 42 pitches. Be­fore go­ing on the dis­abled list, Stras­burg had al­lowed 19 runs over three starts. ... The team re­in­stated IF Stephen Drew from the 15-day DL. Drew missed 40 games be­cause of ver­tigo-like symp­toms.

Yan­kees: Bryan Mitchell earned his first ma­jor-league win, com­bin­ing with Luis Sev­erino and Tyler Clip­pard to shut down the Blue Jays, and the Yan­kees kept up their sur­pris­ing surge with a 2-0 vic­tory to com­plete a three-game sweep. Star­lin Cas­tro home­red for the Yan­kees, who have won four straight and 10 of 14 to close within 21⁄ games of the Ori­oles for the sec­ond AL wild card.

Ath­let­ics: Jharel Cot­ton made a mem­o­rable ma­jor-league de­but in a 4-1 vic­tory over the An­gels. The 24-year-old right-han­der was sharp with four pitches, giv­ing up one run on two hits in 61⁄ in­nings. Cot­ton, who be­came the fourth pitcher in big-league his­tory born in the Vir­gin Is­lands, came to the A’s from the Dodgers at the trade dead­line in the deal that sent Josh Red­dick to Los An­ge­les.
