Sports Headlines

PHOENIX -- The Arizona Diamondbacks have a "problem" that seems like a luxury: Their relief pitchers, much like the Maytag repairman, haven't had much to do lately.
OAKLAND, Calif. -- Sonny Gray took a big step in his last start toward recapturing the form he had his first three years in the major leagues.
HOUSTON -- It was inevitable that, following the splendid performance of right-hander Brad Peacock in his spot start on Monday night, Houston Astros manager A.J. Hinch would be asked to address the potential for Peacock to join the rotation on a full-time basis.
CHICAGO -- Kyle Hendricks insists he is getting ever closer to last season's superb form, and a steadily dropping earned-run average bears him out.
ATLANTA -- The Wednesday start may be the most important of the season for the Pittsburgh Pirates' Trevor Williams.
NEW YORK -- A pair of pitchers auditioning to remain in their rotations will square off Wednesday night when the New York Mets host the San Diego Padres in the middle game of a three-game series at Citi Field.
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- The Los Angeles Angels have won three straight, holding the Tampa Bay Rays to two runs in the past two games, but manager Mike Scioscia would like to see his bats make it easier on his pitchers.
BOSTON -- The Boston Red Sox, who scored 23 runs in their past two games after threatening to fall below .500, have their ace facing the Texas Rangers in the second game of a three-game series Wednesday night.
PHILADELPHIA -- The Phillies have lost 19 of their past 23 games, and aside from the emergence of rookie right fielder Aaron Altherr, they are giving Philadelphia fans very little to look forward to this summer.
WASHINGTON -- One of the few Washington Nationals not performing at his 2016 level is right-handed pitcher Tanner Roark, who is slated to start on Wednesday against the Seattle Mariners.
