Na­tion­als place Strasburg on DL

Richmond Times-Dispatch Weekend - - BASEBALL -

WASHINGTON — Washington pitcher Stephen Strasburg will go on the dis­abled list with right shoul­der in­flam­ma­tion, man­ager Dave Martinez said af­ter the Na­tion­als’ 7-5 vic­tory over San Fran­cisco on Satur­day.

Martinez said there was no timetable on Strasburg’s re­turn. The right-han­der left his start Fri­day against San Fran­cisco af­ter two in­nings and un­der­went an MRI Satur­day morn­ing.

“I thought just the in­flam­ma­tion was a good thing and noth­ing else was wrong struc­turally,” Martinez said. “So as soon as we can get that to calm down a lit­tle bit and get him throw­ing a lit­tle bit, we’ll be fine.”

The three-time All-Star is 6-6 with a 3.46 ERA in 13 starts this year. It is Strasburg’s sixth stint on the dis­abled list in the past four sea­sons.

Tanaka out with two ham­string strains

NEW YORK — Masahiro Tanaka was put on the 10-day dis­abled list by the New York Yankees, a day af­ter the pitcher strained both ham­strings run­ning the bases dur­ing the Sub­way Se­ries opener against the Mets.

The Yankees made the move be­fore Satur­day night’s game at Citi Field and re­called in­fielder Ron­ald Tor­reyes from Scran­ton/Wilkes-Barre of the Triple-A In­ter­na­tional League.

Tanaka was scor­ing his first ma­jor league run on Aaron Judge‘s sac­ri­fice fly dur­ing the sixth in­ning when he felt stiff­ness in both ham­strings. Tanaka was pulled af­ter that, and the Yankees went on to win 4-1.

A 29-year-old righthander in his fifth big league sea­son, Tanaka is 7-2 with a 4.58 ERA in 13 starts.


Pi­rates: Pitts­burgh sec­ond base­man and lead­off hit­ter Josh Har­ri­son

missed a game against the Chicago Cubs be­cause of a per­sonal mat­ter, ac­cord­ing to man­ager Clint Hur­dle.

A two-time All-Star, Har­ri­son is bat­ting .290 with two homers and 13 RBIs in 30 games. He missed five weeks be­cause of a bro­ken left pinkie be­fore re­turn­ing last month.

Rock­ies: Colorado cleanup hit­ter Car­los Gon­za­lez ex­pe­ri­enced back spasms Satur­day and was scratched from the Rock­ies’ game against the Ari­zona Di­a­mond­backs. Noel Cuevas re­placed him in right field and Trevor Story moved up a slot to re­place Gon­za­lez in the lineup.

Dodgers: Walker Buehler has bruised ribs, but scans and X-rays showed no fur­ther dam­age af­ter the rookie righthander was lifted from a start with pain in his side.

Buehler said Satur­day he is un­cer­tain how much time he’ll miss or if he’ll need to go on the dis­abled list. He was hit by Trevor Story’s line drive in a game against Colorado on May 21 and made three starts af­ter that, but the rib in­jury caused him to exit a game Fri­day night against At­lanta in the sixth in­ning.
