New York Mets pitcher Steven Matz has been scratched from his next start because of tenderness in his left elbow, putting his status for opening day in doubt. ''There's a little irritation, and he's got to work that out,'' Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said Sunday. While Matz hasn't been sent for an MRI, Alderson said the ailment is troubling because the 25-year-old has often been slowed during his two seasons with the Mets.

On Saturday, the 6-year-old son of Indians general manager Mike Chernof, was invited into the team's broadcast booth during the ninth inning of an exhibition game against the Chicago White Sox.

The 30-year-old Jackson signed a minor league deal with the Indians in January.

Sun, 26 Mar 2017 16:19:43 PDT

His exhilarating World Baseball Classic experience over, Edwin Diaz got back to work Sunday in preparation to start the 2017 season as the Seattle Mariners' closer. After his two innings of clutch relief in the 11-inning semifinal win over the Netherlands, a fired-up Diaz leaped off the mound in celebration. It's the way he wants to continue to pitch this season, feeding off emotion and displaying it, as is customary among ballplayers from Latin America.

Sun, 26 Mar 2017 18:05:11 PDT

Jharel Cotton took a lesson from his previous spring start - it does him no good to sit around during long innings. Cotton struck out seven and allowed a run over 5 2/3 innings, helping the Oakland Athletics beat the Milwaukee Brewers 11-1 on Sunday. In his last start, Cotton allowed five runs in 3 2/3 innings against Seattle, all after Oakland's six-run third inning.
