AROUND THE HORN
Angels: DH Albert Pujols went on the 10-day disabled list Friday with left knee inflammation. The move came one night after he hit two home runs to tie Ken Griffey Jr. for sixth place on the career list with 630. With a total of three hits on the night, Pujols reached 3,055 for his career, tying him with Rickey Henderson for 25th all time.
Yankees: Closer Aroldis Chapman won’t pitch in the All-Star Game in order to rest his sore left knee. Chapman, who has made the All-Star team five times, is 2-0 with a 1.38 ERA and 25 saves in 40 appearances. He has struck out 67 in 39 innings and held opponents to a .129 average.
Astros: RHP Charlie Morton was added to the American League All-Star team, giving the Astros a major-league-leading six players in Tuesday’s game. Morton, who is 11-2 with a 2.96 ERA and 146 strikeouts in 19 starts, joins fellow RHPs Justin Verlander and Gerrit Cole, 2B Jose Altuve, OF George Springer and 3B Alex Bregman on the squad, which will be managed by Astros manager A.J. Hinch.
Dodgers: 2B Chase Utley announced his retirement before the Dodgers’ game against the Angels, saying “I’m ready to be a full-time dad” to his two young sons. The 39-year-old Utley, a six-time All-Star, is bringing his 16-year career to a close at the end of this season even though he is signed through 2019.
Brewers: OF Eric Thames left the Brewers’ game against the Pirates with right hamstring tightness. He suffered the injury while playing a ball hit into the right-field corner in the top of the second inning.
Mariners: LHP James Paxton went on the 10-day DL, a day after he left a start in the first inning with stiffness in his lower back. Paxton threw only 17 pitches against the Angels on Thursday, allowing three runs on three hits, including two home runs, before he was removed.
Orioles: RHP Darren O’Day underwent season-ending surgery on his left hamstring Thursday.
