Working the eighth inning in a 5-3 loss to the Houston Astros on Tuesday
night, his second inning of the game, Barnette felt something different in his
shoulder on his first pitch to Marwin Gonzalez. Barnette (2-0) threw two more
pitches before exiting the game.
Texas recalled right-hander Chris Martin from Triple-A Round Rock. Martin was
optioned to the minors on Tuesday, but was able to come back before 10 days by
replacing a player on the DL.
Martin (1-2) worked the 10th inning against the Astros, and fell down after
one of his pitches. The Rangers said after the game that he had a left groin
issue that would be re-evaluated.
A look at what’s happening around the majors today:
The Mets march on in their difficult season a day after learning general
manager Sandy Alderson had effectively stepped down because his cancer has

Alderson will take a leave of absence, but he said Tuesday that he was
essentially ending his tenure both for his health and because he doesn’t think
he’s been successful enough to continue. Assistant general manager John Ricco
and special assistants J.P. Ricciardi and Omar Minaya will run the club’s
baseball operations in Alderson’s absence. Minaya preceded Alderson as Mets
general manager, and Ricciardi was GM of the Toronto Blue Jays from 2001-09.
CAIN NOT ABLE
Lorenzo Cain is missing the chance to face his former teammates this week due
to a left groin strain. The Brewers center fielder was placed on the disabled
list Tuesday, just as Milwaukee opened a series against Kansas City. Cain left
the Royals last offseason for an $80 million, five-year deal with the
Brewers http://www.jetsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-thomas-rawls-je rsey ,
and he’s batting .291 with eight homers, 48 RBIs, 16 stolen bases and an .832
OPS for the NL Central leaders.
Madison Bumgarner is one strikeout shy of 1,500 for his career going into a
start against Colorado. The Giants ace will appear in his 239th game, making him
the fourth-fastest left-hander to reach
1 Los Angeles Rams Jerseys
Womens ,500 Ks in the live-ball era, according to stats. This will be
Bumgarner’s fifth start this season, and he’s 1-2 with a 3.20 ERA.
Indians rookie Shane Bieber is off to a strong start and gets his first
interleague test in a game against St. Louis. The right-hander is 2-0 with a
2.45 ERA through three starts, including seven scoreless innings against Detroit
last time out. Bieber has 22 strikeouts and three walks in 18 1/3 innings after
walking just 18 batters in 274 career minor league innings. The Cardinals will
counter with another promising young righty, Jack Flaherty
(3-2 Los Angeles Chargers Jerseys
Womens , 2.50).
Dallas Keuchel (4-8, 3.90) has been the weakest link in Houston’s rotation –
which says more about the Astros than Keuchel – but he’s been sharp of late.
Over his past two starts, he’s thrown 12 innings without allowing an earned run,
and now he’ll face a Toronto team that struck out 13 times against Charlie
Morton in a 7-0 loss Tuesday to Houston.
