NEW YORK (AP) Rather than activate Alex Rodriguez from the disabled list, the New York Yankees sent him to Double-A Trenton for an injury rehabilitation assignment.

Sidelined since straining his right hamstring on May 3, Rodriguez was scheduled to play for the Thunder against New Hampshire on Tuesday night. The Yankees are leaning toward activating him for a trip that starts Friday at Tampa Bay but could change that if he feels good.

"We were thinking a couple of days and see where he's at," manager Joe Girardi said. "It's more for knocking off the rust. I think we feel pretty good about his hamstring, but in saying that, it will give us a good idea of where it's really at because it's hard to simulate game activities."


BoSox reliever Smith to have Tommy John

BOSTON (AP) Red Sox reliever Carson Smith had season-ending Tommy John surgery on his right elbow on Tuesday, four days after an MRI revealed a tear in his ulnar collateral ligament.

President of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski said before Boston's game against the Colorado Rockies that Smith will need 11 to 14 months to recover. The procedure was performed by Dr. David Altchek in New York.


Vogelsong has multiple facial fractures

Tigers' Kinsler ill, out of lineup

DETROIT (AP) Ian Kinsler has been scratched from the Detroit lineup for Tuesday night's game against Philadelphia because of flu-like symptoms.

Kershaw's Ks run ends in 2-hit shutout

LOS ANGELES (AP) Clayton Kershaw bailed out the Los Angeles Dodgers' exhausted bullpen with his third shutout of the season, and he was quick about it, too.

The left-hander allowed two hits and struck out seven on 102 pitches in a 1-0 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Monday night. Kershaw retired his final 17 batters after issuing just his fifth walk of the season to Joey Votto leading off the fourth inning.

Rangers' Hamilton to miss season

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) Josh Hamilton will have another surgery on his left knee and not play a game this season for the Texas Rangers.

The 2010 AL MVP and five-time All-Star slugger has already had surgery twice on his left knee the last nine months, along with cortisone shots and even a stem cell and platelet-rich plasma injection during spring training. He played in one game for Double-A Frisco on April 30 before being recalled from his rehab assignment.


Mets lose Duda then batter Nationals 7-1

WASHINGTON (AP) Bartolo Colon's back was bothering him enough that he told New York Mets manager Terry Collins he wouldn't be able to hit another memorable home run. The heart of the lineup took care of that.

David Wright, Yoenis Cespedes and Neil Walker connected on the day slugger Lucas Duda went on the disabled list, leading the Mets past the Washington Nationals 7-1 Monday night.
