Pittsburgh Pirates

Terry Francona will miss at least three games to have surgery for gastrointestinal issues

Cleveland Indians manager Terry Francona will miss his team’s three-game series with the Pirates, which began Tuesday night, to deal with gastrointestinal issues.

Rangers manager Chris Woodward served a one-game suspension Tuesday against the Padres a day after Texas reliever Ian Gibaut threw behind San Diego hitter Manny Machado following a grand slam.

Before Tuesday’s game, Tingler said he won’t put on restraints on the 21-year-old who began the day leading the majors with 11 home runs and 28 RBIs.

The back-and-forth finish came after the teams were scoreless going into extra innings, highlighted by splendid performances from starters Zack Greinke and Antonio Senzatela .

Rojas didn’t know if Peterson would undergo an MRI … Tampa Bay Rays two-way rookie Brendan McKay will have season-ending surgery on his left throwing shoulder Wednesday.

He was cleared to resume activities July 31 and reported to the club’s alternate site, but then experienced stiffness in his pitching shoulder and was shut down last week.
