SCIOSCIA’S FUTUR
A look at what’s happening around the majors Sunday:ELos Angeles Angels manager Mike Scioscia might address a report that he plans to step down at the end of the season. Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports that the 59-year-old is expected to leave.The 59-year-old Scioscia has managed the Angels since 2000 and is the longest-tenured manager in the majors. The Angels are 55-57 as their series wraps up in Cleveland.GETTING HOT IN WASHINGTONNationals star Bryce Harper might be hobbled for a bit after getting hit by a curveball in the right knee Saturday night. Harper struggled initially to put weight on the leg George Foster Jersey , but eventually made his way to first base. A half-inning later, he was replaced in right field by Adam Eaton. Washington reliever Ryan Madson hit Reds star Joey Votto with a pitch later, and an infuriated Votto yelled at Madson throughout the rest of the inning. That tension might spill over when the teams conclude their four-game series.OSUNA RETURNSReliever Robert Osuna joins the Astros, ending his 75-game suspension for violating Major League Baseball’s domestic violence policy. The World Series champs acquired the 2017 All-Star from Toronto on July 31 for Ken Giles in a swap of closers. The 23-year-old Osuna had a 2.93 ERA in 15 games for the Blue Jays this season when he was penalized.Osuna is expected to talk to the team before the game at Dodger Stadium. The right-hander has been working out with Double-A Corpus Christi.RUNAWAY RED SOXDavid Price and the Red Sox try for a surprising sweep of the Yankees when they wrap a four-game series at Fenway Park. With Aaron Judge and Gary Sanchez on the disabled list, New York’s bats have been bottled up by Boston’s pitchers http://www.redsfanproshop.com/authentic-tom-seaver-jersey , with Rick Porcello and Nathan Eovaldi throwing gems the past two games.Price (11-6, 3.97) hopes to follow suit and make up for a miserable outing the last time he faced the Yankees, when he allowed a career-worst five homers in an 11-1 loss July 1. Masahiro Tanaka (9-2, 3.84) starts the night game for the Yankees, who have lost a season-high four in a row.Boston is 8 1/2 games ahead of New York for the AL East. The teams play six more times in September.A HISTORY OF SUCCESSWith the Braves in a tight race atop the NL East http://www.indiansfanproshop.com/authentic-b.j.-upton-jersey , right-hander Julio Teheran (8-7) tries to stifle the Mets again when he starts the finale of a four-game series at Citi Field. Teheran is 9-6 with a 2.33 ERA in his career against New York and has permitted just two runs on 11 hits in 21 innings (0.86 ERA) vs. the Mets this season. Rookie righty Corey Oswalt (1-2) pitches for New York in place of injured Steven Matz. Oswalt beat San Diego in his last major league start July 25 for his first career win. SEATTLE (AP) — The Seattle Mariners acquired outfielder Domingo Santana from the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday in exchange for outfielder Ben Gamel and minor-league pitcher Noah Zavalos.The swap of young outfielders adds a right-handed power bat to the Mariners’ lineup and provides the Brewers with a versatile corner outfielder.The 26-year-old Santana is two years removed from hitting 30 home runs and having 85 RBIs, but he struggled to find a consistent spot in the Brewers’ outfield last season after the additions of Lorenzo Cain and NL MVP Christian Yelich. Santana appeared in just 85 games and hit .265 with five homers and 20 RBIs. He played even less in the field, appearing in only 55 games defensively a year after starting 138 games in right field for the Brewers.“Santana was one of the most productive outfielders in baseball in 2017,” Seattle general manager Jerry Dipoto said in a statement. “He did not have the same opportunities last year, but his age and power bat from the right side make him a very good fit for our club moving forward.”The 26-year-old Gamel appeared in 101 games last season for the Mariners and hit .272 http://www.indiansfanproshop.com/authentic-omar-vizquel-jersey , but started just 69 games. He was a regular defensive replacement and can play both left and right field. Two seasons ago, Gamel started 127 games and hit .275 with 11 home runs and 59 RBIs.“During his young career, Ben has proven that he can hit at the major league level. His left-handed bat and outfield versatility also provide solid fits for our roster,” Milwaukee general manager David Stearns said.Stearns said adding Zavalos was a boost after the Brewers had targeted the right-hander in the 2018 amateur draft. Zavalos was selected in the 18th round by Seattle and was 5-2 with a 3.09 ERA in 19 appearances at a pair of Single-A stops in his first season.
