NY Yank. 28.6.17
Yankees place Castro on 10-day DL
The New York Yankees placed Starlin Castro on the 10-day disabled list on Tuesday with a strained right hamstring. The move comes a day after Castro hurt his leg while trying to beat a ground ball that ended the third inning of a 6-5 win against the Chicago White Sox. The second baseman is batting .313 with 12 home runs and 45 RBI in 73 games.
LA Dodg. 27.6.17
Dodgers put McCarthy on DL
The Los Angeles Dodgers placed right-hander Brandon McCarthy on the 10-day disabled list Monday due to right knee tendinitis. The move occurred a day after McCarthy lasted three innings and threw three wild pitches in the second inning of the Dodgers' 12-6 win over the Colorado Rockies. McCarthy is 6-3 with a 3.25 ERA in 13 starts this season after being limited to nine starts last season.
NY Yank. 26.6.17
Hicks out with rib injury
New York Yankees outfielder Aaron Hicks will go on the disabled list after injuring his ribcage on the right side during a check swing in the first inning Sunday. Hicks was removed from a 7-6 loss to the Texas Rangers before the fifth inning. He was told his recovery would take three to four weeks. Hicks was 1 for 2 in the game, lifting his average this season to .290 with a .398 on-base percentage.
Athletics place Pinder on 10-day DL
The Oakland Athletics placed infielder Chad Pinder on the 10-day disabled list Saturday with a left hamstring strain. Pinder was removed from Friday night's game against the Chicago White Sox in the sixth inning because of the injury. Pinder, 25, has started 39 games for the A's this season at five different positions. He hit safely in six of his last eight games, going 9-for-31 (.290) with three doubles, a home run, and seven RBIs during that stretch.
McCullers to return for Astros against Mariners
With the lead in the American League West more than a dozen games, the Houston Astros had the luxury of being cautious. So when right-hander Lance McCullers Jr., the league's pitcher of the month for May, felt discomfort in his lower back a couple of weeks ago, the Astros didn't hesitate to put him on the 10-day disabled list. "If I had to miss time, for something totally unrelated to my arm, it might as well be right now," said McCullers, who is scheduled to be activated from the disabled list Saturday to start against the Seattle Mariners. "I feel good and ready to get back out there."
Springer suffers hand injury
Houston Astros outfielder George Springer suffered a left hand contusion after being struck by a 92-mph fastball from Jesse Hahn leading off Thursday against the Oakland Athletics. The Astros described the injury as a contusion and labeled Springer's status as day to day. X-rays were negative. Springer is tied for second in the American league with 21 home runs.
Segura activated from DL
Seattle Mariners shortstop Jean Segura, who has been sidelined since June 2 with a high ankle sprain, was activated prior to Wednesday's game against the Detroit Tigers. Segura is hitting .341, which ranks second in the American League, to go along with four homers and 20 RBIs. This was Segura's second stint on the disabled list this season after being sidelined April 11-24 with a strained hamstring.
LA Angels 21.6.17
Angels put Norris on disabled list
Angels closer Bud Norris has been placed on the 10-day disabled list because of right knee inflammation. The 32-year-old right-hander has been dealing with the injury on and off for about a month. The move was retroactive to Monday, and Angels manager Mike Scioscia anticipates Norris will be activated on June 29, the first day he is eligible.
Red Sox place Sandoval on 10-day DL
Due to an inner ear-infection in his left ear, the Red Sox placed third basemen Pablo Sandoval on the 10-day disabled list Tuesday. As a result of the new Collective Bargaining Agreement agreed upon this past offseason, the 15-day disabled list was amended to the 10-day disabled list in the hopes that organizations would be more cautious with minor injuries to their players. It is likely that injuries similar to that of Sandoval's, under the former provision, would not have resulted in a disabled list designation. The former World Series MVP has battled weight problems throughout his career and is hitting just .212 on the year and has already missed 31 games with a sprained right knee.
Blue Jays put Smith on DL
The Toronto Blue Jays placed reliever Joe Smith on the 10-day disabled list with right shoulder inflammation Monday and recalled fellow right-hander Leonel Campos from Triple-A Buffalo. Smith has posted a 3-0 mark and 3.41 ERA with 47 strikeouts against just eight walks in 31 2/3 innings this season. The 33-year-old is in his first season with Toronto after signing as a free agent in February.

League format : Baseball : MLB 2017
During the regular season, games are played mainly against teams within each league through an unbalanced schedule, which heavily favors divisional play. Ten teams advance to postseason, the three division champions from each league, together with two wildcard teams, who will play each other, and the winner of this game advancing to the Division Series.
Three division winners and the wild-card team meet in a best-of-five playoff round to determine the final two teams from each league, who then play in the League Championship Series. The champions of each league meet in the World Series to declare an overall Major League Baseball winner. The World Series and League Championship Series are best-of-seven playoff rounds. The league that wins the All-Star Game is given the home field advantage in the World Series.
