The Denver Post - - SPORTS -

Ath­let­ics out­fielder Matt Joyce re­ceived a two-game sus­pen­sion without pay for di­rect­ing an anti-gay slur to­ward a fan in Ana­heim, Calif. Ma­jor League Base­ball an­nounced the sus­pen­sion Satur­day, say­ing Joyce will take part in a pub­lic out­reach ini­tia­tive with PFLAG, a fam­ily and ally or­ga­ni­za­tion sup­port­ing the LGBTQ com­mu­nity. … The Mariners put Felix Her­nan­dez on the 10-day dis­abled list, retroac­tive to Wed­nes­day, with bi­ceps ten­dini­tis. … The Ori­oles sent right-han­der Chris Till­man to the bullpen, where they hope he can re­gain the form that en­abled him to an­chor the ro­ta­tion since 2013. Till­man be­gan the sea­son on the dis­abled list with a shoul­der in­jury, won his first game May 7, then went win­less in his next 14 starts. He is 1-7 with an 8.10 ERA. … The Roy­als are likely to place al­ls­tar catcher Sal­vador Perez on the dis­abled list be­fore a dou­ble­header Sun­day against the Mariners. … The Pi­rates claimed vet­eran util­ity in­fielder Sean Ro­driguez off waivers from At­lanta and sent the Braves mi­nor-league in­fielder Con­nor Joe in re­turn. — The As­so­ci­ated Press
