    JUST A MINUTERecently suspended players Jose Urena and Yasiel Puig are both appealing their punishments and should remain in action this weekend. Urena http://www.piratesfanproshop.com/authentic-adam-frazier-jersey , the Marlins right-hander who plunked breakout Braves rookie Ronald Acuna Jr. with the first pitch of a game Wednesday, was suspended six games by Major League Baseball but was in uniform Friday and could pitch this weekend while the appeal process is completed. Puig also figures to play this weekend for the Dodgers in Seattle as he appeals his two-game ban for fighting and inciting a benches-clearing scrap against San Francisco.CY PAST VS. CY POTENTIALMets ace Jacob deGrom tries to enhance his NL Cy Young credentials when he starts vs. Jake Arrieta and the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park. DeGrom leads the majors with a 1.81 ERA — he’s evened his record at 7-7 after New York recently gave him some long-overdue run support. Arrieta (9-7, 3.33) won the 2015 NL Cy Young Award with the Cubs.BARTOLO’S BALLThe Texas Rangers will honor Bartolo Colon with an on-field tribute before they host the Angels. Earlier this month, the 45-year-old Colon topped Dennis Martinez for the most wins by a pitcher from Latin America.Colon added another victory this week and is 247-186 in the majors. Martinez, who finished in 1998, was 245-193. Martinez will be at Globe Life Park for the ceremony, which will include the Rangers and their players making presentations to Colon.INJURED AND IMPATIENTTrevor Bauer isn’t going to let a stress fracture in his right leg get in the way of throwing a baseball. Cleveland’s right-hander will be out four to six weeks with the injury, but that’s not stopping him from keeping his arm in shape. Bauer played catch from his knees while wearing a walking boot with an athletic trainer Friday, and he hopes to return faster than the timetable given by manager Terry Francona. The right-hander admitted he didn’t take the news very well when he learned he’ll be out for an extended period of time.“I was furious,” he said. “I’ve pretty much felt the same way since.”ON THE JOB TRAININGReds Gold Glove catcher Tucker Barnhart is getting a different look at the diamond. He made his first career start at first base on Friday night after Cincinnati put star Joey Votto on the 10-day disabled list with a bruised lower right leg. Barnhart had seen limited time at Votto’s spot earlier this season.EVALUATING ERICThe Brewers are hoping for quick recovery for slugger Eric Thames after he injured his left knee colliding with center fielder Lorenzo Cain chasing a flyball Friday. St. Louis’ Matt Carpenter drove a ball into the right-field gap in the first that Thames caught before running into Cain. Both players fell to the ground and remained still for a few seconds before getting up on their own. A Brewers trainer checked with Thames and Cain before the game resumed, and Thames was lifted in the bottom of the third with knee soreness. He is hitting .229 with 16 homers and 37 RBIs in 68 games.LONG, LOSING ROADAngels lefty Andrew Heaney has gone nearly three years since winning a start on the road. His streak of 16 consecutive winless road starts has already tied Rudy May (1965-69) for the longest such streak in team history. Heaney’s last road win was Sept. 2 Chad Kuhl Jersey , 2015 at Oakland. His scheduled start Saturday night at Texas, where he is 0-2 with a 10.57 ERA in two career starts, comes a year to the date after his return to the Angels from Tommy John surgery on July 2, 2016. WASHINGTON (AP) — Andrew Stevenson was still driving toward Nationals Park when Tuesday night’s game against the Phillies began. Thanks to a lengthy rain delay, he got there in plenty of time to help Washington get the win.Stevenson and Wilmer Difo hit back-to-back home runs in a five-run sixth inning and Washington rallied past the Phillies 10-4 on Tuesday night, hours after the Nationals traded Daniel Murphy and Matt Adams.Stevenson, who was recalled from Triple-A Syracuse earlier in the day, tied the game with his first career homer, a two-run pinch-hit shot to center.“He got in during the rain delay,” manager Dave Martinez said. “Came to my office and I told him, ‘Hey, congratulations. Happy to have to you. Get your uniform on and get loose. You might be in this ballgame.’”The 24-year-old Stevenson http://www.piratesfanproshop.com/authentic-ivan-nova-jersey , who spent time with the Nationals earlier this season and last, left Syracuse by car at around 3 p.m. after getting the word from manager Randy Knorr that he needed to get to Washington and no flight was available.“(Knorr said) ‘I know you’re gonna be late, but they might need you the second half of the game,’” Stevenson said. “Ended up making it so it turned out pretty good.”Difo — starting at second base after Murphy was dealt to the Chicago Cubs — followed Stevenson’s homer with a go-ahead shot to right off Victor Arano (1-2).Ryan Zimmerman hit his 11th homer of the season and doubled for Washington and Matt Wieters drove in three runs with a pair of singles.Jimmy Cordero (1-0) pitched one inning for the win.“I would say that the Nationals have been a dangerous since opening day and they will be a dangerous team until the last game of the season,” Phillies manager Gabe Kapler said. “That lineup is really good from top to bottom and they demonstrated that tonight.”Philadelphia’s Roman Quinn hit his first career home run in a game that was delayed 1:42 by rain in the third inning. Quinn struck out with the bases loaded and two outs in the eighth against Wander Suero.After gambling on the team as constituted by standing pat at the July trade deadline, general manager Mike Rizzo and ownership essentially threw in the towel Tuesday.For Murphy, the Nationals got Class A infielder Andruw Monasterio and a player to be named or cash. First baseman Adams was sent to St. Louis for $50,000.Washington dropped two of three to the visiting Miami Marlins during the weekend following a 2-5 road trip.With the Phillies trailing 1-0 in the sixth Tuesday night, Quinn led off with a home run. After Cesar Hernandez reached on an error, three singles and a groundout made it 4-1.Washington starter Tanner Roark, who was lifted after the rain delay, pitched three scoreless innings and added an RBI double. He leads MLB pitchers with eight RBIs.Vince Velasquez threw two innings before and after the delay for Philadelphia http://www.piratesfanproshop.com/authentic-jameson-taillon-jersey , allowing one run.NEXT MEN UPTo fill the spots created by the departures of Murphy and Adams, the Nationals recalled Stephenson and infielder Adrian Sanchez from Syracuse.TRAINER’S ROOMPhillies: C Wilson Ramos, recently returned from the disabled list, was rested after playing Saturday and Sunday. “We have a bit of a slippery, rainy day today and when it comes to Ramos we are really concerned with how we are going to manage his health through the end of the season and into October,” Kapler said.Nationals: LHP Tommy Milone was placed on the 10-day DL (retroactive to Aug. 20) with left-shoulder soreness and RHP Kelvin Herrera (right rotator cuff impingement) was reinstated from the 10-day DL.UP NEXTNationals RHP Stephen Strasburg (6-7, 3.90) returns from the DL (cervical nerve impingement) to make his first 2018 start against the Phillies. He’s 10-2 with a 2.22 ERA in 21 career starts against Philadelphia. The Phillies will recall RHP Zach Eflin (9-4, 3.70) from Triple-A Lehigh Valley to make the start.
