WASHINGTON (AP) The Washington Nationals have traded second baseman Daniel Murphy to the Chicago Cubs and first baseman Matt Adams to the St. Louis Cardinals, essentially throwing in the towel on a disappointing season.

The third-place Nationals announced the moves Tuesday before beginning a three-game series against the Philadelphia Phillies.

Despite a roster that boasts such stars as Max Scherzer and Bryce Harper, Washington began the day with a losing record of 62-63, 7+ games behind the NL East-leading Atlanta Braves.


Astros' Altuve set to return in Seattle

SEATTLE -- The Houston Astros on Monday night concluded what was their longest stretch without All-Star second baseman Jose Altuve since he made his debut as a 21-year-old on July 20, 2011.

Altuve will be reinstated from the 10-day disabled list Tuesday and will rejoin the starting lineup following a 21-game hiatus caused by right knee discomfort when Houston visits the Seattle Mariners.


Yankees' Gregorius on DL with sore heel

MIAMI (AP) New York Yankees shortstop Didi Gregorius has been placed on the 10-day disabled list with a bruised left heel.

The move, which came before the Yankees' game Tuesday at Miami, was retroactive to Monday. Gregorius was hurt in a collision Sunday at first base during a 10-2 romp over Toronto.


Yankees' Stanton makes return to Miami

MIAMI -- When the New York Yankees visit the Miami Marlins on Tuesday for the start of a two-game series, much of the attention will be on the return of right fielder/DH Giancarlo Stanton.

A four-time All-Star, Stanton starred for the Marlins last year, leading the league in homers (59), RBIs (132) and slugging percentage (.631). He was named the National League MVP after his incredible 2017 season and yet the Marlins dumped his huge contract this past winter, trading him to the Yankees for second baseman Starlin Castro and two prospects.


Jansen returns, takes loss to Cardinals

LOS ANGELES (AP) Since the calendar turned to August, the St. Louis Cardinals have been on a tear.

They kept it up against Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen, who allowed ninth-inning homers to Jedd Gyorko and Matt Carpenter in his return from the disabled list in a 5-3 loss to the Cardinals on Monday night.


White Sox manager Renteria hospitalized

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Lucas Giolito and the Chicago White Sox were thinking about Rick Renteria all night long.

They banded together to get their hospitalized manager one of his favorite presents: another win.


Rookie Wilson helps Braves down Bucs 1-0

PITTSBURGH (AP) Bryse Wilson was pitching for his high school team in Hillsborough, North Carolina, barely two years ago. Now, he's 1-0 in the major leagues.

Wilson worked five solid innings, becoming the third 20-year-old pitcher to start in his big league debut for Atlanta this season in the Braves' 1-0 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Monday night.


Davis' HR highlights A's rout of Rangers

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) On a night they both homered - and Ramon Laureano for the first two times in his career - the rookie learned far more about teammate Khris Davis than just his ability to clear fences.

Davis' heart shined through as far as that 438-foot home run he hit sandwiched between Laureano's two longballs.


Shaw, Yelich power Brewers past Reds

MILWAUKEE (AP) Travis Shaw and Christian Yelich homered to help the Milwaukee Brewers overcome an early deficit, and Chase Anderson kept the ball in the ballpark when it mattered.

Anderson settled in after giving up two early solo homers and the Brewers rallied for a 5-2 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Monday night.
