Indians put Naquin on DL...Astros’ Springer has bruised elbow...Bills sign Edmunds
CLEVELAND (AP) — The Cleveland Indians have placed outfielder Tyler Naquin on the 10-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring. Naquin pulled up running into second base last night after his two-run double in the fourth inning against Kansas City. He was replaced in the top of the fifth and an MRI revealed the strain.
HOUSTON (AP) — The Astros will see how outfielder George Springer is feeling, a day after he was hit by a pitch from Texas lefty Cole Hamels. Springer remained on the ground for nearly two minutes as Houston’s medical staff attended to him. He left the game with a bruised left elbow. Springer set a franchise record for hits in a nine-inning game on Monday night in Oakland, going 6 for 6.
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — The Buffalo Bills have signed first-round draft pick Tremaine Edmunds of Virginia Tech to a four-year deal. Buffalo traded up to the 16th selection to get the linebacker, who had 109 tackles and 5.5 sacks in 2017. That leaves the Bills with two of eight draft picks unsigned: Wyoming quarterback Josh Allen and Stanford defensive tackle Harrison Phillips.
BARCELONA, Spain (AP) — Lewis Hamilton has won the pole position for tomorrow’s Spanish Grand Prix. He set a track record during qualifying today with a time of 1 minute, 16.173 seconds. Valtteri Bottas will start second after finishing less than a tenth of a second behind his Mercedes teammate. Sebastian Vettel was third with Ferrari, ahead of teammate Kimi Raikkonen (KEE’-mee RAY’-koh-nehn).
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The final warmup session for this afternoon’s IndyCar Grand Prix was stopped twice because of smoke from an engine — and geese. The first red flag waved when smoke started billowing from the back of Marco Andretti’s No. 98 car. A few minutes after practice resumed, the action was stopped when geese appeared in the 12th turn. Scott Dixon posted the fastest lap of the session, with pole winner Will Power second.
