MINNEAPOLIS — Days after a fan at Fenway Park directed racial slurs at Baltimore Orioles outfielder Adam Jones, MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred said he is determined to “provide our players with an environment where they feel comfortable in every major league stadium that they play.”

Manfred spoke Friday before the Minnesota Twins hosted the Boston Red Sox, who were at the center of the controversy this week after Jones, who is black, heard the taunts. Another fan was removed and banned for life from Fenway Park the next day for making a racist remark, and other black players throughout the big leagues said it is a common occurrence to be subjected to such behavior by fans.

Manfred said MLB is surveying all 30 teams to see how they handle such situations “as a prelude to giving consideration to some more industrywide guidelines in this area.”

“We want to make sure that we know exactly what the clubs are doing before we start recommending changes,” Manfred said. “We’re in the process of gathering information right now.”

Manfred did not comment on specific changes or guidelines being considered, but said more would be forthcoming after officials get the information from the teams.

YANKEES: Catcher Gary Sanchez was activated from the 10-day disabled list and was in the lineup against the Cubs.

Sanchez had been sidelined since April 8 because of a strained right biceps.

BLUE JAYS: Manager John Gibbons says Marcus Stroman will make his next scheduled start Monday night against Cleveland.

Stroman left after three innings Wednesday against the Yankees because of tightness in his right armpit.

DODGERS: First baseman Adrian Gonzalez went on the disabled list for the first time in his 14-year career because of right elbow soreness. Gonzalez had played 1,774 games without a DL trip, most among active players.
