A look at what’s happening around the majors today:
Manny Machado was off the lineup a day after spraining his left ankle, but Padres acting manager Ryan Flaherty is optimistic the all-star third baseman doesn’t need to go on the injury list.
“It has some purple and blue in it, but overall it moves and feels pretty good,” Flaherty said Monday.
Machado, who has an MVP season, was injured Sunday in Colorado while trying to hit a grounder. His studs slipped over the top of first base and he fell to the ground.
Machado hits .328 with 12 homers and 46 RBIs. He has largely borne the Padres’ offense in the absence of All-Star shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr., who remains out while he rehabilitates his surgically repaired left wrist.
1998 RETURN OF THE YANKEES – IN NAME ONLY
Two 23-year-old shortstops named after stars of the 1990s New York Yankees championship teams made their way to the major leagues this week.
Boston remembered Triple-A Worcester’s Jeter Downs and his first name comes from Yankees Hall of Famer shortstop Derek Jeter. Downs hit .180 with a homer and 11 RBIs at triple-A this year.
Pittsburgh remembered Indianapolis’ Oneil Cruz — he’s named for Yankees right fielder Paul O’Neill. Cruz made his big league debut the last weekend of last season when he beat Cincinnati on a home run 3 for 9 in two games. He’s hitting .232 with nine home runs, 35 RBIs and 11 steals at Triple-A this season.
Downs and Cruz were both born in 1998, the year the Yankees swept San Diego for the first of their three straight titles.
With Walker Buehler likely out until at least September with a flexor strain and also recovering from surgery to remove bone spurs from his elbow, Tony Gonsolin has been promoting the Los Angeles Dodgers like an ace.
Gonsolin could take the lead in the Major League ERA if he starts in Cincinnati.
The 28-year-old right-hander is 8-0 with a 1.42 ERA in 12 starts covering 63 1/3 innings. It will be the Dodgers’ 66th game, meaning he needs 2 2/3 innings to qualify for the ERA lead.
Gonsolin has allowed a run in his last three starts and given up six hits in 18 1/3 innings with 16 strikeouts and four walks.
Cincinnati’s Tyler Mahler is 0-1 despite a 3.08 ERA in six starts since winning in Pittsburgh on May 13.
In his last start before the Yankees host this weekend’s Nasty Nestor T-Shirt Night, Nestor Cortes starts in Tampa Bay.
The 27-year-old lefty is 6-2 with a 1.94 ERA in 12 starts, hitting 75 and going 17 in 69 2/3 innings while keeping opponents at a .190 average.
He’s 2-0 up against the Rays this season, allowed an eight-inning run at the Trop on May 26, and gave up a 5 1/3-inning run at Yankee Stadium last week.
