MLB Notes: Red Sox 3B Pablo Sandoval Out for Season

CHICAGO - Pablo Sandoval will miss the rest of the season.

The Boston Red Sox third baseman had surgery to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder on Tuesday. The Red Sox called the surgery a success but said he will miss the rest of the season.

They said he is expected to make a full recovery in time for the 2017 season.

Sandoval is in his second season of a $95 million, five-year contract. In his first season with Boston, he posted career-lows with a .245 average, 10 homers and 47 RBIs. He reported to spring training visibly overweight, then lost his starting job to Travis Shaw.

Phillies Win Torturous Series Against Orioles to Stay Alive in NL East Race

Orioles: J.J. Hardy to the DL
BALTIMORE - Shortstop J.J. Hardy has been placed on the 15-day disabled list by the Baltimore Orioles because of a hairline fracture in his left foot.

Hardy is expected to miss four-to-six weeks. He was in the Orioles clubhouse on Tuesday on crutches and will wear a boot for two to three weeks.

The 33-year-old Hardy says he has no idea when he might return.

The injury occurred Sunday, when Hardy fouled a ball off his foot in the fourth inning against the Chicago White Sox. He said it was the first time he ever experienced a broken bone.

Baltimore recalled infielder Ryan Flaherty from Triple-A Norfolk. Flaherty was in the starting lineup at shortstop for Tuesday night's game against the New York Yankees.

Red Sox: Carson Smith activated
CHICAGO - The Boston Red Sox have activated right-handed reliever Carson Smith off the 15-day disabled list.

Smith was available for Tuesday night's game against the Chicago White Sox, giving Boston another bullpen option in the seventh and eighth innings.

Smith strained a flexor muscle in his right forearm in a spring training game. He retired all five batters in two rehab relief appearances for Double-A Portland last week.

The Red Sox optioned infielder Marco Hernandez to Triple-A Pawtucket on Sunday night in anticipation of the move.

The 26-year-old Smith was acquired from Seattle in the Wade Miley trade in December after posting a 2.31 ERA in 70 appearances as a rookie with the Mariners last season.

Tigers: C Bobby Wilson traded to Rangers
CLEVELAND - Catcher Bobby Wilson has been traded from the Detroit Tigers back to the Texas Rangers for minor league pitcher Chad Bell.

Wilson batted .154 (2 for 13) with two RBIs in five games with the Tigers. He was acquired from the Rangers for catcher Bryan Holaday on March 29.

Bell was 1-0 with a 1.50 ERA in five games for Triple-A Round Rock this season

In another move Tuesday, Detroit activated catcher James McCann, who had been on the 15-day disabled list since April 12 because of a sprained right ankle.

McCann, who is hitting .133 (2 for 15) with two RBIs in four games, returned to the starting lineup Tuesday night against Cleveland.
