Rangers ace Darvish back on disabled list

ARLINGTON, Texas — Yu Darvish was placed on the 15-day disabled list with shoulder discomfort after making only three starts for the Rangers in his return from major elbow surgery.

Darvish had an MRI exam Monday in Texas and was examined by Rangers team physician Dr. Keith Meister.

The MRI exam showed no structural issues, but the right-hander from Japan is still bothered by discomfort in his pitching shoulder. The team said he will receive treatment until he is ready to throw again.

Darvish last pitched Wednesday, when he came out after five innings against Houston. He said after the game that tightness in his neck caused tightness in his shoulder.

That start against the Astros was Darvish's third since returning from Tommy John surgery. Darvish said he has "heard it's common for players that have had Tommy John surgery to have issues like this."

Bautista back: Blue Jays OF Jose Bautista was back at designated hitter against Philadelphia after missing three games with a sore right thigh. Bautista left in the sixth inning against Baltimore on Thursday.

Collins returns tonight: Mets manager Terry Collins, who missed Sunday's game after feeling ill that morning in Milwaukee, will return tonight. Collins was seen by a doctor Sunday at Froedtert Hospital in Milwaukee, and the team said all tests came back negative. Collins, who turned 67 last month, is the oldest manager in the majors.

Throwing incident: Police said a man accused of throwing a beer bottle near Phillies 1B Ryan Howard during a game was cited for disorderly conduct. Police spokesperson Tanya Little said Sidney Smith, 21, of Wilmington, Del., turned himself in Friday over the June 4 incident.

Giants: INF Ruben Tejada signed a minor-league deal, San Francisco radio station KNBR-AM reported.

Tigers: DH Victor Martinez was out of the lineup because of irritation in his right knee.

Yankees: 1B Ike Davis finalized a one-year contract. He gets paid at the rate of a $1.5 million salary while in the majors and at the rate of a $120,000 salary in the minors.

  1. Blake Snell steps up, but Rays lose to Orioles anyway (w/video)

    ST. PETERSBURG — Blake Snell stepped up when he had to Monday and delivered an impressive career-high seven-plus innings for the Rays. That it wasn't enough in what ended up a 5-0 loss to the Orioles that was their season-high fifth straight is symptomatic of the mess they are in right now.

    LHP Blake Snell stepped up when the Rays needed him to — and perhaps when he had to to keep his job — working a season-high seven plus innings. And it wasn't only that he got deep into the game, but how he did so, using his fastball to pound the strike zone.
