Glasnow limits Rangers to 2 infield singles in Rays’ 3-0 win
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Tyler Glasnow finally has a win to go with the label of the pitcher Tampa Bay got in the trade for former ace Chris Archer.

Choi hits 2-run HR with 2 outs in 9th, Rays beat Indians 6-5
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — With time running short and so much ground to make up, the Tampa Bay Rays will probably miss the postseason. But they certainly look like a playoff team right now.
Ji-Man Choi hit a two-run homer off Brad Hand with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning, and the Rays beat the Cleveland Indians 6-5 on Monday night to set a team record with their 12th straight victory at home.
Snell gets 18th win, Rays hit 4 homers, beat Orioles 14-2
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — The Tampa Bay Rays have found an ace.
Blake Snell tied for the major league victory lead with his 18th, Nick Ciuffo and Kevin Kiermaier hit early three-run homers and the Rays beat the Baltimore Orioles 14-2 on Friday night.
"He's performed like one," Rays manager Kevin Cash said. "Blake was really good, again."
Snell (18-5) matched Cleveland's Corey Kluber for the major league lead, after allowing two runs, five hits and striking out nine over 5 1/3 innings.
MILWAUKEE (AP) — The Milwaukee Brewers recalled veteran infielder Brad Miller from Triple-A Colorado Springs on Saturday and optioned struggling outfielder Domingo Santana there in an exchange of former 30-homer players.
Miller, acquired from Tampa Bay on June 10 for first baseman-outfielder Ji-Man Choi, was in the Brewers' starting lineup at second base and batting sixth Saturday against St. Louis.
MILWAUKEE (AP) — The Milwaukee Brewers have acquired infielder Brad Miller from Tampa Bay for first baseman/outfielder Ji-Man Choi and will receive more than $2.2 million from the Rays as part of the trade.
The NL Central-leading Brewers made the deal Sunday and assigned Miller to Triple-A Colorado Springs. He was cut by Tampa Bay on Thursday.
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The hero for the Milwaukee Brewers on Saturday is on his way to the minors a day later.
The Brewers optioned Ji-Man Choi to Triple-A Colorado Springs on Sunday, a day after he hit a go-ahead, pinch-hit grand slam in the Brewers' 12-3 win over the Philadelphia Phillies.
The move was made to open a roster spot for right-hander Brandon Woodruff, who started Sunday against the Phillies.
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Ji-Man Choi casually jogged to first. The jubilation in the Brewers' dugout indicated otherwise.
Choi and came through with a go-ahead grand slam when he pinch hit in the sixth inning, and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Philadelphia Phillies 12-3 on Saturday.
"I thought it was a fly ball," Choi said through a translator. "I'm just really happy I was able to get this hit."
CHICAGO (AP) — The Milwaukee Brewers have placed starting pitcher Zach Davies on the 10-day disabled list with right rotator cuff inflammation and recalled first baseman-outfielder Ji-Man Choi from Triple-A Colorado Springs.
The Brewers announced the moves before their interleague game Friday night against the Chicago White Sox. Davies was placed on the DL retroactive to May 30, when the right-hander allowed five runs and eight hits over five innings in a 6-1 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals.
Aguilar homers twice as Brewers beat Twins 8-3
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — With Ryan Braun and Eric Thames on the disabled list, the Milwaukee Brewers are missing plenty of power in the middle of their lineup.
Jesus Aguilar is proving to be quite the fill-in slugger.
Aguilar homered twice and Ji-Man Choi hit a solo home run in his return to the majors as Milwaukee beat the Minnesota Twins 8-3 on Friday night.
SEATTLE (AP) — Rob Refsnyder was traded from the New York Yankees to the Toronto Blue Jays on Sunday for first baseman Ryan McBroom.
Designated for assignment on Wednesday, the 26-year-old Refsnyder appeared in 94 games over three seasons with the Yankees, hitting .241 with two home runs and 17 RBIs. He played first base, second base, left field and right field.
McBroom, 25, hit .243 with 19 doubles, 12 homers and 54 RBIs this year at Double-A New Hampshire. He was assigned to Double-A Trenton.
NEW YORK (AP) — Ji-Man Choi turned on a fastball from Marco Estrada, sent it deep toward the right-field seats and tossed his bat with a look of satisfaction.
The South Korean infielder had become the second player in a week to homer in his New York Yankees debut.
Indians’ rally sends Angels to 10th straight loss, 5-4
CLEVELAND (AP) — Abraham Almonte singled home the go-ahead run in the sixth inning and the Cleveland Indians sent the Los Angeles Angels to their 10th straight loss, 5-4 Sunday.
The AL Central-leading Indians trailed 4-1, but scored twice in both the fifth and sixth to complete a four-game sweep.
The Angels went 0-9 on their road trip and are mired in their worst skid since an 11-game losing streak in 1999.
Final: A’s edge Angels in 10 innings despite Ji-Man Choi’s two home runs
ANAHEIM - The earliest return on the Angels' trade deadline dealing didn't look like a bargain in his debut.
But Ricky Nolasco's first start for his new team was a footnote by the end of the Angels' 10-inning, 8-6 loss to the Oakland A's on Thursday and he might earn a similar distinction in the final analysis of the trade.
The only Monday trade acquisition to join the Angels' major-league club allowed five runs in six innings.
Angels scrap both parts of left field platoon -- Daniel Nava, Craig Gentry -- on the same day
ANAHEIM - The best laid plans of mice and men sometimes get DFA'd.
Daniel Nava and Craig Gentry - the players general manager Billy Eppler hoped could provide some left field production for a discount - failed miserably, finally resulting in both players being designated for assignment on Saturday.
Now, the Angels will go with a left field combination that includes only one natural outfielder, Shane Robinson. The other candidates are converted infielders: Jefry...
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Hanley Ramirez fielded the grounder to first and saw Mike Trout steamrolling toward home. Ramirez rushed his throw just enough to send it sailing — and to hand a victory to the Los Angeles Angels.
Ramirez's throwing error to the plate on Daniel Nava's bases-loaded grounder allowed two runs to score, and the Angels walked off with a stunning 2-1 win over the Boston Red Sox on Thursday night.
BALTIMORE - When the Angels had Ji-Man Choi up earlier this season, they felt he lacked opportunity, not ability.
This time, he's going to have plenty of opportunity.
C.J. Cron's broken hand has left a void in the middle of the Angels lineup, with ample playing time up for grabs for anyone who can produce.
Choi, who was in the lineup at first base on Saturday, and Jefry Marte are both going to get a shot. Both can also play left field, which has been a soft...
