Major League Notebook: Aceves involved in a spat after a split

The Associated Press

(Continued from page 1)

METS: Justin Turner, the leading candidate to replace injured David Wright at third base, left New York's game against the Miami Marlins after spraining his right ankle.

The Mets said Turner was taken to a hospital for precautionary X-rays.

Turner made a nice play on a hard-hit grounder by Justin Ruggiano, and his left leg buckled and his right foot turned awkwardly when he tried to throw to first. Turner was limping badly and was replaced by Brandon Hicks.

Wright has a left intercostal muscle strain and is expected to rest for up to four days before he is reevaluated.

RANGERS: Right-hander Kyle McClellan could miss the first month of the season because of a strained lat muscle.

The Rangers scratched McClellan from his start Sunday against Seattle with the injury. Texas said in a release Saturday that McClellan should need three to four weeks of recovery before beginning a throwing program.

McClellan, who had spent his entire professional career in the St. Louis Cardinals organization, signed a minor league contract with the Rangers on Jan. 15 and was a non-roster invitee to spring training. After winning 12 games for the Cardinals in 2011, he was limited to 16 relief appearances and 182/3 innings last year because of shoulder and elbow injuries and did not pitch after May 17.

BLUE JAYS: Toronto claimed right-hander Guillermo Moscoso off waivers from Kansas City. The 29-year-old Venezuelan appeared in 23 games last season for the Colorado Rockies. He pitched in three games this spring for the Royals, and was 0-1 9.00 ERA in five innings.
