ANAHEIM, Calif. — Angels reliever Archie Bradley broke a bone in his elbow while climbing over the dugout railing during Los Angeles’ massive brawl with the Seattle Mariners on Sunday.

Bradley will be out for at least one month, Angels athletic trainer Mike Frostad said Tuesday. Bradley won’t start a throwing program for four weeks while his elbow heals.

Bradley’s injury is the second to result from the lengthy fracas at Angel Stadium: Mariners catcher Luis Torrens went on the 10-day injured list Monday with a sore left shoulder.

Bradley slipped and fell off the railing when the brouhaha broke out in the second inning immediately after Angels opener Andrew Wantz hit Seattle’s Jesse Winker with a pitch. Bradley didn’t pitch Sunday or in Los Angeles’ win over the White Sox on Monday night.

Wantz also threw a pitch behind Julio Rodriguez in the first inning Sunday, one night after Seattle’s Erik Swanson threw a pitch near the head of Mike Trout in the ninth inning. Six players and both managers were ejected after the fight, and 12 suspensions were handed out Monday to players, coaches and team personnel.

The heavily bearded Bradley is in his first season with the Angels, who signed him last March to bolster their perpetually poor bullpen. He is 0-1 with a 4.82 ERA and two saves in 21 appearances for Los Angeles, but he spent time on the injured list earlier this season with an abdominal strain.


Angels interim manager Phil Nevin began serving his 10-game suspension Monday. He declined Tuesday to give his opinion about MLB’s handling of the brawl and the subsequent suspensions.

But Nevin found a silver lining: He will be eligible to return for the third game of Los Angeles’ four-game series at Baltimore next weekend. Nevin’s son, Tyler, plays for the Orioles, and Nevin will be able to enjoy two games as a fan.

RAYS: Center fielder Kevin Kiermaier expects to return from a left hip injury Friday night at Toronto, a welcome development for the injury-plagued Rays.

The Rays, who are tied for the second-most players on the injured list with 14, started Tuesday fourth in the AL East with a 40-32 record.

Kiermaier went 0 for 2 with a walk and played six innings of defense Tuesday in a rehab game with the rookie-level FCL Rays.

Right-hander Drew Rasmussen, out since June 12 with a left hamstring strain, could rejoin the rotation this weekend.


Another starter, Luis Patino, sidelined by a left oblique strain, has made three starts for Triple-A Durham and will make at least one more minor league appearance.

Reliever Pete Fairbanks, who hasn’t pitched this year, is set to start a rehab assignment Thursday with the FCL Rays.

Slugger Brandon Lowe has resumed taking batting practice. He has been on the IL since May 16 with a lower back injury.

Starting pitcher Tyler Glasnow, who had Tommy John surgery last August, threw off a bullpen mound.

ATHLETICS: Outfielder Stephen Piscotty was activated from the 10-day injured list after recovering from a strained left calf.

Infielder Jonah Bride was put on the 10-day IL, retroactive to Monday, a day after he strained his right shoulder in a collision with Chad Pinder.


Piscotty was batting .225 with a home run and three RBI in 14 games when he was placed on the IL May 8 retroactive to May 7.

GUARDIANS: Catcher Austin Hedges was placed on the 7-day injured list with a concussion, forcing the team to acquire veteran Sandy Leon in a trade with Cincinnati.

The Guardians made the deal – and several other roster moves – before a day-night doubleheader against the AL Central leading Minnesota Twins.

Hedges took a foul tip off his protective mask last weekend and was showing concussion-like symptoms Monday despite passing all neurological tests. He didn’t play in the series opener.

Catcher Bryan Lavastida wasn’t an option because he’s dealing with a hamstring injury at Triple-A Columbus, so the Guardians sent cash to the Reds and brought back Leon, who played in 25 games with Cleveland in 2020.

The Guardians also recalled reliever Anthony Castro and rookie left-hander Konnor Pilkington from Triple-A Columbus.


PHILLIES: Bryce Harper will have surgery Wednesday to repair his broken left thumb and the team hopes the 2021 NL MVP can play again this season.

Manager Rob Thomson did not offer a timetable for Harper’s return.

Harper’s thumb was broken when he was hit by a 97 mph pitch from San Diego Padres left-hander Blake Snell on Saturday night.

The 29-year-old Harper is hitting .318 with 15 home runs, 48 RBI and a .985 OPS, and has helped the Phillies recently surge back into playoff contention.

ASTROS: The Houston Astros have placed five-time All-Star Michael Brantley on the injured list with right shoulder discomfort.

Brantley left Houston’s 6-3 loss to the New York Yankees on Sunday in the eighth inning. He was 0 for 3 with two strikeouts before being replaced by pinch-hitter J.J. Matijevic.


The 35-year-old outfielder is hitting .288 with five homers and a .785 OPS in 64 games this season.

Outfielder Chas McCormick was recalled from Triple-A Sugar Land two days after being demoted. Right-hander Enoli Paredes was also called up, and right-hander Brandon Bielak was optioned to Triple-A after Sunday’s defeat.

The Los Angeles Angels claimed outfielder Dillon Thomas off waivers after Houston designated him for assignment Friday.

BRAVES: Closer Kenley Jansen was put on the 15-day injured list because of an irregular heartbeat, the latest heart-related issue in the veteran right-hander’s career.

The move was made retroactive to Monday when Jansen felt discomfort, Manager Brian Snitker said.

In November 2018, Jansen underwent a cardiac ablation, a procedure to restore normal heart rhythm. He was first diagnosed with irregular heartbeat issues in 2011 and had an ablation the next year.


METS: Max Scherzer had his minor league rehab start with Double-A Binghamton pushed back a day to Wednesday, but New York Manager Buck Showalter says there has been no setback in his recovery from a strained oblique.

Scherzer will be pitching on seven days of rest after his first rehab start with the Rumble Ponies on June 21. Over the weekend, New York dashed speculation that the three-time Cy Young Award winner would be ready to return for Sunday’s game in Miami.


INDIANS-TWINS SPLIT: Jorge Polanco drove in three runs in his first game back from the injured list and rookie Josh Winder pitched six stellar innings as visiting Minnesota got a day-night doubleheader split with a 6-0 win over Cleveland.

Amed Rosario’s clutch two-run single in the eighth inning rallied Cleveland to a 3-2 win in the opener, snapping the Guardians’ five-game losing streak.

NATIONALS 3, PIRATES 1: Patrick Corbin matched a career high with 12 strikeouts, Yadiel Hernandez delivered a go-ahead two-run double, and Washington rallied in the eighth inning for the second straight game, beating visiting Pittsburgh.


Corbin (4-10) allowed one run in eight innings for Washington, which has won three in a row and 6 of 8.

Pittsburgh has lost five in a row by a combined seven runs.

YANKEES 2, ATHLETICS 1: JP Sears stretched his big league scoreless streak to 12 2/3 innings and won his second spot start, pitching major league-leading New York over the worst-in-majors Oakland at New York for its 15th win in 19 games.

Wearing No. 92, the highest jersey number in Yankees history for a starting pitcher, Sears (3-0) limited the A’s to three hits in 5 2/3 innings, struck out one and walked one.

Josh Donaldson backed him with an RBI double in the first off trade candidate Frankie Montas (3-8), and Marwin Gonzalez homered in the second.

After two catcher’s interference calls against Sean Murphy on Monday, Murphy reached on an interference call on Jose Trevino with two outs in the ninth on a grounder to second that caused the public-address system to play the game-ending “New York, New York.”


Pinch-hitter Stephen Vogt singled to put runners at the corners and Elvis Andrus hit an RBI single off Clay Holmes that cut the lead to one. Holmes retired Tony Kemp on a groundout to strand two runners and get his 13th save in 14 chances.

New York improved to 55-20 and a season-high 35 games over .500, off to the majors’ best 75-game start since the 2001 Seattle Mariners.

BRAVES 5, PHILLIES 3: Matt Olson homered twice and Travis d’Arnaud also went deep to lift visiting Atlanta over Philadelphia.

The Braves improved to 20-5 this month and are a win away from tying the club record for victories in June with two games remaining.

CARDINALS 5, MARLINS 3: Dylan Carlson drove in a pair of runs and the St. Louis bullpen combined for four scoreless innings as the Cardinals came back to beat visiting Miami.

Carlson went 2 for 4 and has hit in five straight games. Teammate Tommy Edman scored a pair of runs and stole his 19th base of the season.

BREWERS 5, RAYS 3: Brandon Woodruff struck out 10 over five innings in his return from the injured list, Andrew McCutchen and Luis Urías homered during a four-run sixth, and visiting Milwaukee beat Tampa Bay.

ASTROS 9, METS 1: Kyle Tucker had a three-run homer and a stolen base, Yordan Alvarez hit his 23rd home run and Framber Valdez pitched a gem to lift visiting Houston over New York.

Alvarez reached base five times, Yuli Gurriel also homered and Alex Bregman had three hits as Houston beat the Mets for the third time in a week. The AL West leaders swept a two-game series at home to begin a stretch of nine straight games against the Mets and Yankees. Houston is 5-2 in that string.
