D'backs' hot-hitting OF fractures hand

PHOENIX — Diamondbacks OF A.J. Pollock will have surgery on his fractured right hand in the next few days, and manager Kirk Gibson estimated Sunday that he'll miss about 5-8 weeks.

Arizona placed Pollock on the 15-day disabled list and purchased the contract of OF David Peralta from Double-A Mobile. Peralta started in leftfield Sunday for his major-league debut.

Pollock was hit in the hand by Reds RHP Johnny Cueto in the eighth inning of Saturday's 5-0 loss. He has been one of the team's best players and is tied for second in the National League with four triples, seventh in slugging percentage (.554), tied for seventh in doubles (16) and tied for eighth in extra-base hits (26).

O'S DODGE BULLET: Orioles OF Nelson Cruz is day to day after being hit on his left hand by a pitch. X-rays were negative.

CHISOX SLUGGER TO RETURN: White Sox rookie 1B Jose Abreu, out for two weeks with tendinitis in his left ankle, is expected to be activated from the disabled list tonight.

ANGELS: CF Mike Trout missed a second straight game with back stiffness.

GIANTS: 1B Michael Morse was scratched from the lineup after fouling a ball off his left foot during batting practice.

YANKEES: RF Carlos Beltran, on the disabled list with a bone spur in his right elbow, got through another round of onfield batting practice without feeling pain and headed to Tampa for extended spring training games.

  1. Rowdies settle for draw at home


    ST. PETERSBURG — The good news for the Rowdies is that they still haven't lost a game at Al Lang Stadium since late April. The bad news is they had to settle for a 1-1 tie against Ottawa on Saturday night in front of 6,710 sweaty fans.

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG —The six runs seemed like a ton, just the second time the Rays had scored that many in a game during their numbing two-plus-weeks stretch of offensive impotency, and amazingly, the first time at the Trop in nearly two months.

    Lucas Duda connects for a two-run home run in the sixth, getting the Rays within 7-5. A Logan Morrison home run in the ninth made it 7-6, but Tampa Bay couldn’t complete the comeback.

  4. Marc Topkin's takeaways from Saturday's Rays-Mariners game

    The Heater

    SS Adeiny Hechavarria doesn't always look like he's going hard, but he showed impressive reactions Saturday in reversing field to catch a ball that clanked off the catwalk then firing to second to double up Guillermo Heredia on an attempt to tag up.

  5. Bucs journal: Simeon Rice gives master class on sacks to defensive ends


    TAMPA — As the Bucs seek their first 10-sack season from a player since Simeon Rice in 2005, who better to help that cause than Rice himself?
