CLEVELAND — Indians right-hander Danny Salazar will miss the remainder of the season after undergoing shoulder surgery.

The team said Salazar had an arthroscopic debridement and bursectomy. He will not be able to throw for at least three months while he recovers and there is no definitive timetable on when he’ll pitch again.

Salazar has been on the disabled list since the start of the season after arriving at spring training with a sore shoulder. He had numerous procedures before the decision was made to have the operation.

The 28-year-old Salazar went 5-6 with a 4.28 ERA in 19 starts for Cleveland last season. His loss deprives the AL Central leaders of some depth in case they suffer any more injuries.

Salazar made the All-Star team in 2016, when he went 11-6 with a 3.87 ERA in 25 starts.

TWINS: Minnesota reinstated shortstop Jorge Polanco, following his 80-game suspension for testing positive for a performance-enhancing drug.

The Twins also recalled right-hander Zack Littell from Triple-A Rochester among several moves before their game Monday at Milwaukee. Left-hander Adalberto Mejia was sent to Rochester after making one start. Utility infielder Ehire Adrianza went to the disabled list with a hamstring injury.

To make room for Polanco on the 40-man roster, outfielder Ryan LaMarre was designated for release or assignment. Outfielder Byron Buxton was returned from his rehab assignment and sent to Rochester. Buxton has played in only 28 games for the Twins this season, due to injuries and hitting struggles.

Polanco had a breakout 2017 season, batting .316 with 10 homers and 42 RBI over his last 55 games.

ATHLETICS: Catcher Bruce Maxwell has been sentenced to two years of probation on a disorderly conduct charge.

His sentencing came nearly three months after he pleaded guilty to the charge in a gun-related incident.

Police say Maxwell had pointed a handgun at a woman who delivered food to his home in Scottsdale, Arizona, in October.

Police said in court documents that Maxwell lowered the gun once the woman explained why she was there. She then gave him the food and left.

CARDINALS: As if a scratch from the “Rally Cat” wasn’t enough, now a St. Louis Cardinals groundskeeper has a bonk on the head from an errant ceremonial pitch.

Lucas Hackmann first gained notoriety last season when he captured a cat that scurried onto the field at Busch Stadium, only to have the frightened feline sink its nails into his hand. Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina homered on the next pitch, and the cat was dubbed the “Rally Cat.”

On Sunday, Hackman was helping with stenciling of text behind home plate while a man tossed a ceremonial “first pitch” before the Braves played the Cardinals. The throw sailed high and outside, beyond the reach of the catcher. It smacked Hackmann on the head.

Fortunately, it was a soft toss. Hackmann was fine.

GIANTS: Power-hitting shortstop Marco Luciano from the Dominican Republic is among 11 international prospects to sign with San Francisco.

Cuban center fielder Jairo Pomares and right fielder Luis Matos of Venezuela also were part of the Giants’ international class for this year.
