TAMPA, Fla. — The Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday unveiled an elaborate plan for a new domed stadium that would take them across Tampa Bay to the Ybor City section of Tampa at a cost of nearly $900 million.

The 30,842-seat stadium would be the smallest in Major League Baseball and would be covered by a fully enclosed and translucent roof, not a retractable dome.

Stuart Sternberg, principal owner of the Rays since 2005, called the plan “a dramatic break from the past” and explained the blueprint as the franchise’s latest attempt to make a long-term commitment to the region.

No plans were revealed about stadium financing. The Rays made the presentation partly to solicit corporate support.

Sternberg has said he expects to play at Tropicana Field for at least four or five more years.

INDIANS: The Indians will be without two of their most experienced playoff performers for an extended period.

Right fielder Lonnie Chisenhall will miss 8 to 10 weeks with a strained left calf muscle, and right-hander Josh Tomlin was placed on the disabled list with a strained right hamstring.

WHITE SOX: Chicago placed outfielder Avisail Garcia on the 10-day disabled list with a Grade 1 right hamstring strain.

NATIONALS: Washington placed All-Star closer Sean Doolittle on the 10-day disabled list with left toe inflammation, optioned right-handed pitcher Jefry Rodriguez to Triple-A Syracuse and recalled right-handed pitchers Wander Suero and Austin Voth from Syracuse on Tuesday.

Doolittle, 31, hasn’t pitched since July 6. The following day, he tripped over a pitching mound and first experienced discomfort in his left toe.

The left-hander has a 1.45 ERA and has converted 22 of 23 save opportunities this season. He will not pitch in the 2018 MLB All-Star Game, which is being held at Nationals Park on July 17.

Kelvin Herrera will close games while Doolittle is out. He had 14 saves with the Kansas City Royals before he was traded to Washington on June 19.

ALL-STAR GAME: Retired Houston Astros first-base coach Rich Dauer will be among the coaches for the American League at next week’s All-Star Game.

Dauer was a part of Houston’s World Series championship last season, but was rushed to a hospital immediately after the team’s victory parade – surviving a difficult surgery on a blood clot in his brain.

Dauer, 65, will join Tampa Bay Rays Manager Kevin Cash on AL Manager AJ Hinch’s staff.

Also, first-year Nationals manager Dave Martinez will be among the coaches for the National League. He was invited to join this year’s All-Star staff by NL and Los Angeles Dodgers Manager Dave Roberts, who also selected Rockies Manager Bud Black.

ATHLETICS: Second baseman Jed Lowrie was added to the AL All-Star team to replace injured Yankees second baseman Gleyber Torres.
The first All-Star selection of his 11-year big-league career, Lowrie is in the midst of his best season. He’s already matched his career-high single-season home run total, batting .288 with 16 home runs, 25 doubles, and 62 RBI.
