Orioles' Davis highlights Home Run Derby field
NEW YORK — Baltimore Orioles slugger Chris Davis, who leads the majors with 33 homers, will be one of eight participants in the Home Run Derby next Monday night during All-Star festivities at Citi Field.
Davis was chosen by American League captain Robinson Cano of the New York Yankees. They will be joined on the AL squad by Detroit Tigers bopper Prince Fielder, who won the event last year and in 2009, and a player yet to be announced.
New York Mets star David Wright, the National League captain, selected 20-year-old Washington phenom Bryce Harper along with Colorado outfielders Carlos Gonzalez and Michael Cuddyer.
Major League Baseball announced the field Monday.
MOOSIC, Pa. — New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter went 0-for-2 with a walk and a run scored in five innings for Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Monday night in his third game back from an ankle injury.
Jeter tested the left ankle several times while playing the field for just the second time and was part of four defensive plays.
He fielded two grounders, caught one pick-off attempt at second base and tagged out a runner on a close fielder's choice call in which he took a throw from the catcher and had to drop to his knees to apply the tag.
PHOENIX — The Los Angeles Dodgers placed center fielder Matt Kemp on the 15-day disabled list Monday with joint inflammation in his troublesome left shoulder.
Manager Don Mattingly said Kemp tried to take early batting practice before Monday night's game at Arizona but experienced more soreness and, with the All-Star break coming up, it didn't make sense to play short-handed while Kemp heals.
The move is retroactive to Saturday. Kemp was injured while swinging the bat against San Francisco on Friday night and hasn't played since. He received a cortisone shot Friday night but it hasn't helped much.
Arizona State lands former Penn State guard Marshall
TEMPE, Ariz. — Former Penn State guard Jermaine Marshall is planning to transfer to Arizona State.
Marshall, the Nittany Lions' second-leading scorer last season, announced in May that he was forgoing his final year of eligibility to pursue a professional career overseas.
The 6-foot-4 guard is now headed to Arizona State instead, as long as he fulfills requirements to graduate this summer.
Marshall averaged 15.3 points, 4.6 rebounds and 2.4 assists as a junior at Penn State. If he does graduate and become eligible, Marshall would likely be a starter for the Sun Devils alongside Jahii Carson in what could become one of the nation's best backcourts.
Jets coach Ryan runs with bulls twice in Pamplona
NEW YORK — Rex Ryan spent part of his summer vacation running from angry bulls.
The New York Jets coach joined thousands of thrill-seekers on Sunday and Monday in the annual running of the bulls at the San Fermin festival in Pamplona, Spain.
The team confirmed Monday that Ryan was uninjured while participating both days in the run, which is the highlight of a nine-day street festival and is televised nationally. Ryan was there on two mostly uneventful days as there were no gorings, while six people were treated for injuries.
