es will see how shortstop Didi Gregorius is feeling http://www.indiansfanproshop.com/authentic-b.j.-upton-jersey , a day after he bruised his left heel in a collision while beating out an infield hit. Gregorius was hurt when he tumbled over Toronto first baseman Kendrys Morales.Gregorius is batting .270 with 22 home runs and 74 RBIs, and has 48 extra-base hits this season.“It’s something that we’ll monitor over the next 24 hours, could potentially be a DL thing,” manager Aaron Boone said.CHECK HIMCubs pitcher Yu Darvish had another setback in his injury-interrupted year, increasing speculation he might be done for the season. Darvish lasted just one inning in his rehab start with Class A South Bend on Sunday.Darvish has been sidelined by triceps and elbow injuries, and shook his right arm as he left the field. The 32-year-old is 1-3 with a 4.95 ERA for Chicago and has made just eight starts since signing a $126 million, six-year contract.VICTORY LANEIndians ace Corey Kluber and Boston right-hander Rick Porcello start when Cleveland visits Fenway Park to begin a four-game matchup between AL division leaders. If either Kluber (15-6, 2.68 ERA) or Porcello (15-5, 4.04) get the victory Jason Kipnis Jersey , they would tie Washington’s Max Scherzer and the Yankees’ Luis Severino for the major league wins lead.REMEMBER ME?Yankees slugger Giancarlo Stanton plays at Marlins Park for the first time since Miami traded the 2017 NL MVP in December. Stanton played his first eight seasons with the Marlins, and led the majors with 59 home runs last year. Stanton has hit 32 this year for New York, giving him a career total of 299.“It’s going to be weird for sure walking in, going to the visitors’ side,” Stanton said. “But I am looking forward to it. It’s a big part of my life, my time down there. It will be a cool experience.”FIT FOR A KINGFelix Hernandez returns to Seattle’s rotation, a week after the only relief appearance of his career. The longtime Mariners ace (8-11, 5.62 ERA) was recently bumped to the bullpen after a series of shaky starts. He threw 5 2/3 innings of relief last Tuesday after James Paxton was forced to leave when he was hit in the pitching arm by a line drive. Hernandez will start in Paxton’s place when the M’s host Gerrit Cole (11-5, 2.71) and the Astros. CHICAGO (AP) — A little rain cut short Michael Kopech’s anticipated big league debut Tuesday night. Couldn’t damper his spirits http://www.indiansfanproshop.com/authentic-b.j.-upton-jersey , though.Eddie Rosario led the Minnesota Twins to a 5-2 victory, but not before Kopech pitched two scoreless innings in a rain-shortened start and gave Chicago a glimpse of a potentially promising future.“It was a dream come true,” Kopech said. “It was everything I thought about since I was a little kid. I was pumped.”The game was tied at 2 before Minnesota pushed across three runs in the ninth. Jake Cave was thrown out when he tried to score from second on Mitch Garver’s pinch-hit single, but Dylan Covey (4-11) issued an intentional walk to Joe Mauer before Rosario greeted Jace Fry with a tiebreaking RBI single into center field.Jorge Polanco tacked on a two-run single as Minnesota won for the sixth time in eight games. Trevor May (2-0) pitched a scoreless inning for the victory, and Taylor Rogers got three outs for his second save.The 22-year-old Kopech, one of baseball’s top pitching prospects, struck out four of the 10 batters he faced before a 52-minute rain delay. Luis Avilan came in for the White Sox when the game resumed.“I’m a little bummed out,” Kopech said. “I wanted to go a little deeper in the game. I didn’t realize my pitch count (52) was as high as it was.”Kopech figures to have plenty of chances in the future.“It wasn’t a tough decision. You worry more about the individual and the length of his career,” said bench coach Joe McEwing Larry Doby Jersey , who filled in for manager Rick Renteria the second straight night. “It was nothing but positives for Michael Kopech tonight.”Leaning heavily on his blazing fastball, Kopech allowed three hits, hit a batter and walked none. The right-hander was acquired in the December 2016 trade that sent ace left-hander Chris Sale to the Boston Red Sox, and the White Sox are counting on him to be a prominent figure in their rebuilding project.Nicky Delmonico and Yoan Moncada homered for Chicago.Minnesota grabbed a 2-1 lead in the fourth. Logan Forsythe and Jake Cave singled off Avilan with one out. After Robbie Grossman’s RBI single against Jeanmar Gomez, Cave scored during a rundown on which Grossman was tagged out on a steal attempt.Moncada tied it at 2 with a solo drive off Gabriel Moya in the seventh.Twins right-hander Jose Berrios allowed one run and four hits in five innings. He is winless in his last three starts.“There was a lot of energy here,” Twins manager Paul Molitor said. “The Sox fans are very well aware of (Kopech) and the future. I thought he handled it pretty well.”MORE TESTS FOR RENTERIARenteria will return to Chicago on Wednesday and undergo further testing, according to the team. The 56-year-old Renteria experienced lightheadedness and was hospitalized before Monday night’s 8-5 victory over the Twins in Minnesota.“He sounds good,” said McEwing, who spoke with Renteria before Tuesday’s game. “He’s a very tough individual.”AUSTIN IS SORRYTwins first baseman Tyler Austin apologized for his father’s recent “embarrassing” tweets criticizing New York Yankees first baseman Greg Bird. The Yankees opted to keep Bird instead of Austin Bob Feller Jersey , who was traded for pitcher Lance Lynn on July 30.TRAINER’S ROOMTwins: RHP Ervin Santana (sore right middle finger) will undergo an MRI on Wednesday, but Molitor said “it’s becoming less likely he’s going to play the rest of the season.” The organization has a $1 million buyout option on his $14 million contract for next season.White Sox: INF Jose Abreu underwent outpatient surgery on his lower abdomen after complaining of discomfort upon his arrival to the ballpark. He could resume baseball-related activities in two weeks. … OF Leury Garcia will be sidelined for three to six weeks after an MRI showed a Grade 2 strain of his left hamstring. OF Ryan LaMarre was recalled from Charlotte and RHP Tyler Danish was sent to the Triple-A club.UP NEXTTwins: RHP Kyle Gibson (7-9, 3.51 ERA) will take a career 6-3 record and 2.77 ERA against the White Sox into Wednesday’s game.White Sox: LHP Carlos Rodon has been on a roll of late – 3-0 record, 1.41 ERA and .148 opponent batting average over his last six starts.
