The banged-up New York Yankees put pitcher Ivan Nova and catcher Francisco Cervelli on the 15-day disabled list Saturday, the latest setbacks in an injury-riddled season.
Yankees catcher Francisco Cervellli broke his right hand on Ivan Nova's fifth pitch the game against Toronto on Friday night, and two innings later New York's starter walked off the mound with pain in his right elbow.
Josh Hamilton hit his 32nd homer and drove in three runs, Yu Darvish struck out eight and the Texas Rangers beat the Detroit Tigers 8-3 Sunday.
Justin Verlander threw his second career no-hitter and the second in the big leagues this week, leading the Detroit Tigers to a 9-0 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays on Saturday.
The Toronto Blue Jays have placed outfielder Rajai Davis on the 15-day disabled list after aggravating an ankle injury on Sunday in Anaheim.
Jered Weaver kept mowing 'em down, even as he grew wearier with each pitch.
Capsules of American League teams, listed in order of finish last year:
Speedy outfielder Rajai Davis has been acquired by the Toronto Blue Jays from the Oakland Athletics for a pair of minor leaguers in the second trade of the general managers' meetings.
David DeJesus has been on the Oakland Athletics' radar for a while now. They like his near-perfect defense, baserunning and consistent bat.
"We try not to put pressure on him," Toronto's Rajai Davis said. "We're trying to be supportive and do whatever we can to win every game, when he pitches or when anybody pitches."
