Baseball-Major League Baseball roundup

April 24 (The Sports Xchange) - Major League Baseball suspended New York Yankees pitcher Michael Pineda 10 games on Thursday "for possessing a foreign substance on his person" in Wednesday night's game against the Boston Red Sox. "I made a mistake," Pineda said Thursday before the series finale at Fenway Park. Pineda was ejected in the second inning of the 5-1 loss to the Red Sox after Boston manager John Farrell complained about a smear of something on the right side of Pineda's neck. - - Outfielder Mark Trumbo was placed on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to Tuesday, with a stress fracture in his left foot and the Arizona Diamondbacks recalled outfielder Roger Kieschnick from Triple-A Reno. Trumbo, 28, was out of the Diamondbacks' lineup Wednesday. He is tied for the National League lead with seven home runs and with 19 RBIs, was second in that category entering Thursday's games. - - Cincinnati Reds closer Aroldis Chapman faced live hitters in batting practice Wednesday and could return to the team in the next two weeks. Cleared to throw to hitters after missing more than one month with facial fractures, Chapman was described as being in midseason form by the Reds. - - Two pitchers, left-hander Zac Rosscup and right-hander Neil Ramirez, were recalled from Triple-A Iowa by the Chicago Cubs before the series finale with the Diamondbacks. Outfielder Justin Ruggiano was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a left hamstring strain and right-handed pitcher Blake Parker was optioned to Triple-A. - - Chicago White Sox second baseman Gordon Beckham was activated from the disabled list. Beckham (strained oblique) was placed on the 15-day disabled list before the season began. He was injured during spring training and served a rehab stint at Double-A Birmingham.
