NOTES

The Washington Post Sunday - - BASEBALL -

PER­SON­NEL DEPT.

An­gels: CF Mike Trout was scratched from the lineup and is day-to-day with tight­ness in his left ham­string. Cubs: Des­ig­nated OF Matt Szczur for as­sign­ment to make room for LHP Rob Zas­tryzny. Mets: SS As­drubal Cabr­era in­jured his left thumb while try­ing to make a div­ing, back­hand stop. The Mets said X-rays were neg­a­tive and Cabr­era will have an MRI exam Sunday. Ori­oles: LH re­liever Zach Brit­ton is on the dis­abled list with a left fore­arm strain — the same in­jury that re­cently side­lined him for two weeks. Pi­rates: RHP Jame­son Tail­lon was placed on the 10-day DL with groin dis­com­fort.

JUDGE STAYS LAW­SUIT

A fed­eral judge in San Fran­cisco has stayed pro­ceed­ings in a law­suit by mi­nor league base­ball play­ers al­leg­ing they are paid less than min­i­mum wage, a move that al­lows lawyers for Ma­jor League Base­ball and its teams to ar­gue be­fore U.S. Court of Ap­peals for the 9th Cir­cuit.

The play­ers sued in Fe­bru­ary 2014, claim­ing most earned less than $7,500 an­nu­ally.
