No discipline for Dodgers in laser incident

NEW YORK — The Dodgers won't face any discipline from Major League Baseball over a laser flap at Citi Field last weekend, it was reported Thursday.

MLB didn't find a violation during the Dodgers' weekend series against the Mets.

The Mets wanted MLB to look into how the Dodgers were using a laser range-finder to set defensive positioning in the outfield before a game, and whether they were marking the field for shifts.

MLB has told teams that using electronic devices is okay before games, but not during play. MLB also has informed clubs that they can't leave anything on the field.

"I have no other comment on it," Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. "We'll abide by whatever the Major League Baseball rules specify."

ASTROS: C Jason Castro was out with a fever. Manager A.J. Hinch had hoped he could play after Evan Gattis caught 11 innings Wednesday.

BRAVES: INF Gordon Beckham went on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring. INF Brandon Snyder was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett, and struck out as a pinch hitter in his first big-league appearance since 2013 with the Red Sox.

D'BACKS: LF David Peralta (right wrist inflammation) was to play an extended spring training game on Thursday then likely join Triple-A Reno to begin a rehabilitation assignment Saturday.

GIANTS: OF Hunter Pence went on the 15-day disabled list because of a right hamstring injury, and OF Mac Williamson was recalled from Triple-A Sacramento. Pence, tied for the team home run lead with seven, missed six starts with another right hamstring injury, returned Saturday then pulled up when running to first base in Wednesday night's game.

RED SOX: OF Jackie Bradley Jr.'s wife, Erin, gave birth to a girl Thursday, and he was named AL player of the month. "He's had a big day, and he's not even here," manager John Farrell said. Bradley is expected back today.

Royals: 3B Mike Moustakas had season-ending surgery on his right knee. He tore his anterior cruciate ligament in a May 22 collision.
