Mariners Place Starting Pitcher Hisashi Iwakuma on the DL

Mariners Place Starting Pitcher Hisashi Iwakuma on the DLMike McGinnis/Getty Images(SEATTLE) --The 2015 regular season has gotten off to a disastrous season for Seattle Mariners starting pitcher Hisashi Iwakuma. After two poor starts, the team has placed Iwakuma on the 15-day disabled list with a right lat strain. "[We] felt it best to back him off and put him on the DL to give him time to make sure this thing, it's a long season we don't want this thing to be an aggravated issue as we go through the next 5½ months," Mariners general manager Jack Zduriencik said. "We'll know a little more tonight. At this point we're hoping it's nothing more than shoulder fatigue and something very small." The team wanted Iwakuma to throw a bullpen session on Friday and determine where he was from a health standpoint. Not only did his shoulder not feel any better, he felt stiffness in his back and the team decided to shut him down. In three starts this season, Iwakuma is 0-1 with a 6.61 ERA.

Jonathan Papelbon Would Like to Be Traded If Phillies Continue to Lose

Jonathan Papelbon Would Like to Be Traded If Phillies Continue to LoseLen Redkoles/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The Philadelphia Phillies have stumbled out of hte gate to begin the 2015 season, and if they don't pick it up, closer Jonathan Papelbon would like to be traded. Papelbon is still an elite closer, but with the Phillies just 6-11, his skills largely go wasted because the team can't get to him enough. In an interview with CSNPhilly.com's Jim Salisbury, Papelbon was asked he'd be disappointed if he wasn't traded. “Yeah, I will be,” Papelbon said. “If we continue to lose. “If we can rebuild this situation and make it right, and we can get some wins underneath our belt and Ryne Sandberg can get us going, that’s a whole different story. To me, that’s a better part of the story because now I’ve been a part of this remodeling. I’ve been a part of getting this bullpen correct. I’ve been a part of something that’s becoming a winning tradition and going back to the way it was before I got here. To me, there’s no better reward than that.” Papelbon is a four-time All-Star, and has yet to give up and earned run this season. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio.

Royals’ Herrera Suspended Five Games, Ventura Fined

Royals’ Herrera Suspended Five Games, Ventura FinedMike McGinnis/Getty Images(KANSAS CITY, Mo.) -- Royals pitcher Kelvin Herrera was suspended five games and fined for targeting Athletics third baseman Brett Lawrie. Fellow Royals pitcher Yordano Ventura was also fined for the same after a weekend filled of fireworks in Kansas City between both clubs. "Nobody likes going through what we went through this weekend, nobody," Royals manager Ned Yost said. "Nobody likes it, but it happens." Ventura was ejected after hitting Lawrie during Saturday's game. Herrera was ejected after throwing behind Lawrie on Sunday and then pointed at his head as he walked towards the dugout. Both actions came after Lawrie's hard slide into Royals shortstop Alcides Escobar during Friday night's game. Still, Herrera defended his actions. "I don't mean to hurt anybody," he said. "Just trying to throw inside, but a bad grip on that fastball. It started raining pretty good. And they just tossed me out." Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.

Scooter Gennett’s Injury Was Caused by Shower AccidentMike McGinnis/Getty Images(MILWAUKEE) -- Milwaukee Brewers second baseman Scooter Gennett recently suffered a hand injury that could land him on the disabled list. As it turns out, the injury was the result of a shower accident. After the team's game on Sunday, Gennett sliced one of his knuckles on a metal rack. "I went to grab some body wash like I would normally grab body wash," Gennett said. "It was definitely a freakish thing. It started bleeding everywhere. I didn't feel any type of pain. I have my strength but something like that reopening and getting worse isn't what we want." It is uknown just how long Gennett will be out of action for the last-place Brewers. "He doesn't understand how in the world you can possibly get hurt in the bathroom," said Brewers manager Ron Roenicke. Gennett is hoping to return to the field on Wednesday, but no decisions have been made yet. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.

It had to be me. It's about par for the course right now." "I can't do anything about it. I have to wait for it to heal up," Lucroy added. "Freak thing. You guys saw it. I don't know what else to say about it other than I have to overcome it, deal with it." The 28-year-old Lucroy was off to a rough start this season, batting .156 with two RBIs.

White Sox to Call Up Top Pitching Prospect Carlos Rodon

White Sox to Call Up Top Pitching Prospect Carlos RodonPhotos.come/Thinkstock(CHICAGO) -- Reinforcements are coming for the Chicago White Sox. The team plans to call up top pitching prospect Carlos Rodon to the Majors on Monday. Rodon was the third overall pick in the 2014 draft by the White Sox. The 22-year-old Rodon had a successful yet brief minor league stint. He appeared in 11 games, making eight starts through the White Sox minor league system. "There will still be butterflies when the debut comes, whatever day that is," Rodon said at the end of spring training. "But it makes it a little easier I guess because I've faced big-league hitters before. But it counts a little more when that happens." He wound up going 1-0 with a 3.15 ERA. Rodon also performed well in the spring, going 2-0 with a 3.06 ERA, five walks and 21 strikeouts in 172/3 innings. Despite the White Sox high hopes for the talented left-hander, the team will begin his Major League career with him pitching out of the bullpen at first to help ease his transition to facing Major League hitters.

Orioles Second Baseman Jonathan Schoop Out Indefinitely with Knee InjuryBaltimore Orioles/MLB(NEW YORK) -- After establishing himself as an everyday player, Baltimore Orioles second baseman Jonathan Schoop will be out indefinitely after suffering a right PCL injury (a Grade 1 tear) and an MCL sprain. Schoop suffered the injury after he was taken out on a slide by Boston Red Sox third baseman Pablo Sandoval over the weekend. “Yeah, it was on first base,” Schoop told the Baltimore Sun. “When I stood up, I felt it a little bit. But I was able to finish the game. On the last play, I was running a little bit and I felt my legs burning. When I came in it was swollen. …It was swollen a little bit, but I thought ice and treatment would make it better. “It's really disappointing you want to be there for the team, for myself,” Schoop added. “So far, I was having really good at-bats. It's really disappointing, but there's nothing I can do.” In his second full season with the Orioles, Schoop was batting .259 with three home runs and seven RBIs.

Josh Hamilton Files for Divorce from Wife

Josh Hamilton Files for Divorce from WifeRonald Martinez/Getty Images(DALLAS) -- Angels slugger Josh Hamilton is in the process of getting divorced from his wife, Katie, according to court documents filed in North Texas. The divorce petition was filed in February in Tarrant County, where Hamilton played five seasons with the Texas Rangers. The petition doesn't detail the couple's problems, but it cites conflict between them as a reason for the divorce. Hamilton has a long history of substance abuse problems and earlier this year he self-reported a relapse. Hamilton outlined 34 requests in the petition. Among the requests: prohibiting his wife from using a Maserati and 1972 Chevrolet Blazer in his possession; prohibiting her from "hiding" the children from him; prohibiting her from making disparaging remarks against him or his family. Angels manager Mike Scioscia met with Hamilton last week for the first time in months, and he said he isn't sure when the star will return to the team. Hamilton is not being disciplined by Major League Baseball for his relapse. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.

Giancarlo Stanton Calls Out the Struggling Marlins

Giancarlo Stanton Calls Out the Struggling MarlinsJonathan Daniel/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- A popular postseason pick, the Miami Marlins have not looked like a team capable of playing in October early on. Outfielder Giancarlo Stanton made it known that he's frustrated with how the team has played this season. Through 11 games, the Marlins are 3-8, tied for worst in the National League East. "We're not really giving ourselves a chance, it feels like," Stanton said after the team's loss to the New York Mets on Friday night. "We've got a positive vibe, but [something] is just not there. "The fire is not there, it seems like. You always want to have it. But when you're out there and it's game time, it's just nothing there." During the offseason, Stanton agreed on a record-setting $325 million contract. The Marlins also brought in players like Dee Gordon, Mat Latos, Martin Prado, and Michael Morse.

A-Rod Inches Closer to Willie Mays

A-Rod Inches Closer to Willie MaysMike Stobe/Getty Images(ST. PETERSBURG) -- Don't look now, but Alex Rodriguez is arguably the hottest hitter on the New York Yankees. A-Rod homered twice in the Yankees 5-4 win over the Tampa Bay Rays on Friday night. It was career home run number 657 and 658. He's just two home runs away from tying Willie Mays for fourth on the all-time list. "I try not to think about that," Rodriguez said. "I’m just really focusing on trying to help the team win.” Through 10 games this season, Rodriguez leads the Yankees in batting average, home runs, and RBIs. Rodriguez was suspended the entire 2014 season for his role in the Biogenesis scandal. "More than anything, I’m just feeling very grateful to be back playing baseball," he said. "I’m very grateful to (owners) Hank and Hal [Steinbrenner] for giving me the opportunity to put the uniform on again. It’s something I don't take for granted and it’s much appreciated. It just feels good to be playing baseball. I’m having fun out there." Rodriguez is under contract for three more seasons. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.
