DETROIT (AP) — can do at the plate.So they are very much looking forward to playing alongside him for a change.The Cubs bolstered their struggling lineup by acquiring Murphy in a trade with the Washington Nationals on Tuesday.The 33-year-old Murphy has a .413 career batting average at Wrigley Field Alcides Escobar Jersey , according to STATS. He was the NL Championship Series MVP when the Mets swept the Cubs in 2015, hitting .529 with four homers and six RBIs.“It’s going to be more fun to watch him hit,” Cubs manager Joe Maddon said before Tuesday’s 2-1 loss at Detroit. “He kind of devastated us in 2015.”The Cubs also announced that Yu Darvish will miss the rest of the season because of a stress reaction in his right elbow.Darvish left his rehab start for Class A South Bend on Sunday after just one inning.“Hopefully it turns out well to get him back next year from Day 1,” Maddon said. “It’s been a very difficult year, obviously, for him to have to endure the physical and maybe some of the emotional, mental pain.”Darvish, who turned 32 on Thursday, signed a $126 million, six-year contract with Chicago in February. But he made just eight starts in his first year with the Cubs, going 1-3 with a 4.95 ERA.The deal for Murphy comes at an opportune time for NL Central-leading Chicago http://www.royalsfanproshop.com/authentic-ryan-goins-jersey , which has scored one run in five straight games on five home runs.Third baseman Kris Bryant is on the disabled list with an inflamed left shoulder, and shortstop Addison Russell was scratched from Tuesday’s loss because of right shoulder inflammation.“Having Daniel in the field with the rest of the guys will be a big help,” Maddon said.The Cubs got Murphy for Class A infielder Andruw Monasterio and a player to be named or cash, grabbing the attention of the team as it prepared for the matchup with Detroit.“This is obviously something that makes us better so they’re all jacked up,” Maddon said. “I walked in the food room, grabbing some salad, and (Ben) Zobrist is looking at the TV and he said, ‘We got Daniel Murphy!’ He was smiling.“I thought he was messing with me. He didn’t know until he saw it. That was legitimate expression of joy, knowing we got Daniel Murphy. I thought that was kind of cool.”Murphy missed the start of the year after undergoing right knee surgery on Oct. 20. He is eligible for free agency after this season.The three-time All-Star is hitting .300 with six homers and 29 RBIs in 56 games.“It’s really bittersweet,” he said in Washington before joining his new team. “I sat at this podium probably two and a half years ago. The Washington Nationals were the only offer I had. They took a chance on me three years ago and I feel very disappointed in myself that it kind of came to this point.”Murphy spent the first seven seasons of his 10-year career with the Mets. He is a .299 career hitter with 116 homers, 327 doubles and 628 RBIs.“One of the best teammates I’ve ever played with Jorge Soler Jersey ,” Nationals star Bryce Harper said.Murphy has been particularly good since the All-Star break, batting .340 in his last 28 games. He was surprised to be claimed, figuring he would end up staying in Washington.Maddon, and his players, were thrilled the front office was able to add him to the roster.“He’s kind of like exactly what we need right now,” Maddon said. “That kind of an at-bat near the top of the order.” NEW YORK (AP) — Gleyber Torres came through for the Yankees on a day they welcomed newcomers Andrew McCutchen and Adeiny Hechavarria to the Bronx and got slugging catcher Gary Sanchez back from the disabled list.Torres hit a two-run homer and Masahiro Tanaka pitched seven strong innings for his first win since July, as New York beat the Detroit Tigers 2-1 Saturday.The Yankees got only two hits, but won for the 11th time in 15 games. New York has the second-best record in the majors, behind AL East-leading Boston.Torres hit his 22nd homer of the season and third since the start of the Yankees’ homestand on Monday, a stretch over which he’s batting .526 with eight RBIs.“He’s impacted our club in a profound way on both sides of the ball all year,” manager Aaron Boone said about Torres http://www.royalsfanproshop.com/authentic-ryan-goins-jersey , a Rookie of the Year candidate.Torres connected in the fifth off Daniel Norris (0-3) for the Yankees’ first hit.McCutchen went 0 for 3 and struck out twice in his Yankees debut. The former NL MVP batted leadoff and played right field, a day after being acquired from San Francisco.“I didn’t have the game I wanted to have personally, the first one, but we got the win and that’s what’s most important,” McCutchen said. “All around it was a good day and it’s a day I’m not going to forget for sure.”Sanchez, who missed nearly six weeks with a recurring groin injury, went 0 for 4.“I thought he caught great today,” Boone said. “I thought he looked pretty much on time at the plate, so I thought a really good first day for him even though he didn’t get any results at the plate.”Hechavarria, traded from Pittsburgh to New York late Friday night, arrived at the ballpark about two hours before first pitch and entered at shortstop to start the ninth.“When I got the news it was about 12:30 at night so I was not really waiting for anything like that so it was a big surprise for me Drew Butera Jersey ,” Hechavarria said through a translator. “I’ve got to thank God I’m here with a great team with a well-known history.”Tanaka (10-5) gave up one run and seven hits for his first victory since July 31. He was 0-3 with a 4.40 ERA in five August starts.“Just to be able to come up with the win today, I think that’s a really good start,” Tanaka said through a translator.Tanaka joined Andy Pettitte as the only pitchers in Yankees’ history to reach double-digit wins in each of their first five seasons in the majors.Jonathan Holder pitched a scoreless eighth and Dellin Betances notched his second save in the ninth.Norris, reinstated from the disabled list and making his first big league appearance since April 29, was pulled later in the fifth with cramping in his left calf. He had been sidelined for most of the season with a strained left groin.“He’s coming off this groin thing, the surgery, so you have to get him out of there. He tried to stay,” said Tigers manager Ron Gardenhire. “The ball came out of hands, it’s just the calf was cramping.”Norris fanned seven, including six of the first 10 New York batters.The Tigers loaded the bases in the first and scored on a sacrifice fly by Victor Martinez.CALL-UPSBoth clubs made additional moves before the game with rosters expanding from 25 to 40.New York recalled RHP Luis Cessa and INF Tyler Wade from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and signed lefty reliever Stephen Tarpley to a major league contract. Wade appeared as a pinch-runner in the seventh, stole a base and remained in the game. OF Shane Robinson was designated for assignment.Detroit recalled RHP Sandy Baez from Double-A Erie.THAT’S A FIRSTBetances fanned Jeimer Candelario to start the ninth http://www.royalsfanproshop.com/authentic-ryan-goins-jersey , becoming the first reliever in major league history to record at least 100 strikeouts in five consecutive seasons.“It means a lot, honestly,” Betances said about the feat. “From 2014 I’ve been able to stay healthy which is the key.”IT TAKES TWOSaturday’s game was New York’s third game with two or fewer hits this season, and their first win with less than three hits since May 27, 2017, versus Oakland.TRAINER’S ROOMYankees: SS Didi Gregorius (left heel contusion) sprinted on a treadmill, fielded grounders and took batting practice. GM Brian Cashman said that a more realistic return date for Gregorius could be Friday in Seattle as opposed to Monday at Oakland. … OF Clint Frazier (migraines) will be re-evaluated after finishing the remaining minor league games available to rehab in. … LHP Aroldis Chapman (left knee tendinitis) continues to receive treatment but there is still no timetable for his return.UP NEXTTigers: LHP Matthew Boyd (8-12, 4.22 ERA) will make his first career appearance at Yankee Stadium in Sunday’s series finale.Yankees: RHP Lance Lynn (8-9, 4.84 ERA) tries to get back on track after allowing 13 runs in 15 innings over his last three starts.
