MIAMI (AP) — Martin Prado looked to be at full strength in
his first game in three weeks.Prado hit a bases-clearing double in his return
from his latest injury Santiago
Casilla Jersey
, Wei-Yin Chen pitched eight strong innings and the
Miami Marlins beat the Toronto Blue Jays 6-3 on Saturday night.“It was huge
personally and for the team,” Prado said. “I think every time you get to
contribute to win a game at this level is a good feeling.”Prado, who had been on
the disabled list for the third time this season, doubled off the wall in
left-center field in the fifth inning to give the Marlins a 6-1 lead. He didn’t
assume the long flyball would clear the fence.“You never know with this field,”
Prado said. “There’s days where the ball just carries more than other days. I
was just glad I hit it in the air because I didn’t want to hit a ground ball for
a double play.”Chen (6-9) allowed one run on three hits. He struck out seven
without walking a batter.“When he’s locating, he’s got enough weapons to get
people out and he’s a guy who can really pitch,” Marlins manager Don Mattingly
said. “It’s nice to see the guy we thought we had when he’s healthy.”J.T.
Realmuto hit his 18th home run and Brian Anderson knocked in two for the
Marlins, who snapped a four-game skid.Toronto’s Justin Smoak hit a two-run
homer Clayton
Richard Jersey
, his 23rd of the season, in the ninth. It was
Smoak’s fourth consecutive game with a home run.Anderson’s sacrifice fly and
Realmuto’s homer gave Miami an early 2-0 lead.Randal Grichuk got the Blue Jays
on the board with a sacrifice fly in the fourth.Anderson drew a bases-loaded
walk for a 3-1 lead right before Prado’s double.“Our starting pitching has been
getting hit around pretty good the last week to 10 days, putting us behind the
eight ball,” Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said. “It’s hard to come back each
night.”Marco Estrada (7-11) allowed eight hits and six runs in 4 1/3
innings.“I’m trying to give these guys innings and obviously I’m not doing my
job right now,” Estrada said. “But I’m going to keep working hard and get this
thing right. Hopefully for the next one I’ll feel a lot better and pitch better
for these guys.”The Marlins also welcomed back center fielder Lewis Brinson from
the disabled list. Brinson went 1 for 4 after missing the last 48 games with a
hip injury.“It’s just good to get guys back out there,” Mattingly said.STRAIGHT
EIGHTSDan Straily and Chen pitched eight innings in consecutive games, becoming
the first Marlins to do so since May 6-7, 2014 ,
when Henderson Alvarez tossed a shutout and Tom Koehler went eight innings in
games against the New York Mets.TRAINER’S ROOMBlue Jays: RHP Marcus Stroman
(blister) is looking to return from the disabled list and start Monday’s game
against Tampa Bay. “Stro threw a side today and he felt really good,” Gibbons
said. … IF Yangervis Solarte (oblique) is progressing toward a return. “Solarte
is doing everything,” Gibbons said. “He’s been swinging it, running, doing all
of that stuff, he’s coming along pretty quick.”Marlins: RHP Pablo Lopez
(shoulder) was placed on the 10-day disabled list and is out for the rest of the
season finishing his rookie year with a 2-4 record and 4.14 ERA in 10 starts. …
RHPs Elieser Hernandez (blister) and Jarlin Garcia (shin) will begin their rehab
assignments on Sunday with Triple-A New Orleans.UP NEXTBlue Jays: RHP Sean
Reid-Foley (0-2, 8.68 ERA) will start Sunday’s series finale.Marlins: RHP Jeff
Brigham will make his major league debut. New York Yankees reliever Aroldis
Chapman has been placed on the disabled list after having to leave Tuesday's
game against the Miami Marlins after just six pitches because of left knee
tendinitis.The team announced the move Wednesday, recalling right-handerChance
Adams from Triple-A in a corresponding roster move.Chapman has been battling
knee problems throughout the 2018 campaign. He pulled out of last month's
All-Star Game because of the injury."Same spot as he felt before Hunter
Renfroe Jersey
, so we just got him out of there," Yankees manager
Aaron Boone said Tuesday, via's Coley Harvey. "We'll get all the
testing and stuff done [on Wednesday]."Despite having a lingering injury
throughout the year, it's been another dominant year for the flame-throwing
southpaw. He has converted 31saves in 33chances while posting a 2.11 ERA and a
1.04WHIP in 50appearances, striking out 84 in 47innings.His 16.1
strikeouts-per-nine rate is the second-highest of his career.Not only that, but
he brings postseason experience to the table. He has a 2.54 ERA and a 1.165 WHIP
in 24 career postseason appearances, spanning three different teams. He also
helped the Chicago Cubs end their 108-year title drought in 2016.There is no
doubt losing Chapman for any amount of time would be a blow to the Yankees
bullpen. However, New York is in better position than most would be to overcome
the loss of an All-Star closer. Deadline acquisitionZach Britton finished fourth
in the 2016 American League Cy Young award voting as a closer for the Baltimore
Orioles Freddy
Galvis Jersey
, and David Robertson and Dellin Betances give Boone
no shortage of proven relievers to turn to to help close out victories.Even with
a stacked bullpen, though, New York's championship aspirations would take a
serious hit if Chapman is hampered or unavailable for October. That's why being
cautious and trying to get him healthy now isimperative.
