Baltimore Sun - - BASEBALL -

Phillies: Pete Mack­anin is out as Phillies man­ager af­ter 21⁄ sea­sons. The team said he will man­age the fi­nal games this sea­son and be re­placed for 2018. Mack­anin, who has a 172-237 record since tak­ing over for Hall of Fame 2B Ryne Sand­berg in June 2015, will be­come a spe­cial as­sis­tant to gen­eral man­ager Matt Klen­tak.

Yan­kees: RHP Masahiro Tanaka struck out 15 over seven in­nings, his high­est to­tal since com­ing to the ma­jor leagues, and the play­off-bound Yan­kees beat the Blue Jays 4-0. Pitch­ing on six days’ rest, Tanaka al­lowed three hits and re­tired his first 14 bat­ters. ... The Yan­kees re­stored RHP Adam War­ren to the ac­tive ros­ter. War­ren, who was re­cov­er­ing from a lower-back spasm, hasn’t pitched for the Yan­kees since Sept. 1.

Twins: All-Star 3B Miguel Sano was ac­ti­vated for the fi­nal reg­u­lar-sea­son series against the Tigers. Sano, who’s el­i­gi­ble to be on the play­off ros­ter, missed 38 games with a stress frac­ture af­ter foul­ing a ball off his left shin.

Na­tion­als: OF Bryce Harper won’t play a full game this week­end as he con­tin­ues to re­cover from a hy­per­ex­tended left knee that he sus­tained Aug. 12. Harper was in the lineup Fri­day night against the Pi­rates, and Baker said the 2015 Na­tional League MVP would play six or seven in­nings be­fore tak­ing an- other day off Satur­day.

Cubs: RHP Jake Ar­ri­eta will miss his fi­nal reg­u­lar-sea­son start for the Cubs. The 2015 NL Cy Young Award win­ner strained his right ham­string Sept. 4 and didn’t pitch again un­til Sept. 21. He lasted three in­nings Tues­day against the Car­di­nals — his sec­ond-short­est out­ing this sea­son.

Astros: OF Car­los Bel­tran has al­ready raised nearly $1.3 mil­lion to help with hur­ri­cane re­lief in his na­tive Puerto Rico. Bel­tran and his fam­ily do­nated $1 mil­lion to ini­ti­ate the fund, and with as­sis­tance from Astros owner Jim Crane, Bel­tran helped se­cure two planes that will carry 300,000 pounds’ worth of sup­plies to the is­land.
