The Cleveland Indians placed righthander Trevor Bauer on the 10-day disabled list Tuesday with a small stress fracture in his right leg. Bauer, 27, is one of the top candidates for the AL Cy Young Award. He is 12-6 with a 2.22 ERA in 25 starts. Bauer leads the AL with 166 innings pitched while ranking second with 214 strikeouts and third in ERA. Cleveland is in complete control in the AL Central, leading second-place Minnesota by 12½ games coming into the day. Bauer was struck by Jose Abreu’s liner in the seventh inning of Saturday night’s 3-1 road win over the White Sox. He returned to Cleveland after experiencing soreness and swelling, and an MRI revealed the injury. This is his first career DL stint . . . The Nationals placed 37-year-old reliever Ryan Madson on the 10-day disabled list with a back injury. Madson surrendered David Bote’s game-ending grand slam in Sunday night’s 4-3 road loss to the Cubs. The Nationals said Monday that Madson was dealing with back issues, but the plan was for him to pitch through it. Madson is 2-5 with a 5.19 ERA and four saves in 48 games this season . . . The Rays acquired minor league pitcher Shane Baz from Pittsburgh as the player to be named in the July 31 trade that sent Chris Archer to the Pirates. The 19-year-old Baz, selected 12th overall in the 2017 amateur draft, was 4-3 with a 3.97 ERA for Bristol in the rookie-level Appalachian League this season. The righthander had 54 strikeouts in 10 starts covering 45⅓ innings.
Maryland takes ‘legal responsibility’
The University of Maryland acknowledged that Jordan McNair, the football player who collapsed during practice and subsequently died, did not receive proper medical care and the school must accept ‘‘legal and moral responsibility for the mistakes.’’ Maryland has parted ways with strength and conditioning coach Rick Court, who resigned Tuesday in the wake of the offensive lineman. Athletic director Damon Evans acknowledged that ‘‘mistakes were made’’ in the treatment of McNair, who was hospitalized May 29 after a team workout and died June 13. The attorney for the McNair family said a preliminary death certificate indicates the cause of death was heatstroke. Court posted his letter of resignation on Twitter. He wrote: ‘‘I am stepping down to allow the team to heal and move forward.’’ He had previously been placed on administrative leave. Head coach DJ Durkin is also on administrative leave and his future is unclear . . . Maine’s medical examiner said Darius Minor, a University of Maine football player from Virginia who collapsed and died during a preseason workout on campus, had a heart condition. The Bangor Daily News reported that the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner said an autopsy on Minor, 18, showed he died of an acute aortic dissection. The office has ruled Minor’s death as ‘‘natural’’ and said that hypertensive cardiovascular disease was a contributing factor. Minor was one of 17 first-year student-athletes participating in the workout when he died July 24. Training staff and first-responders were unable to resuscitate him.
US Open champs get wild cards
Stan Wawrinka, Victoria Azarenka, and Svetlana Kuznetsova received wild-card entries from the US Tennis Association for the year’s upcoming US Open, the final Grand Slam tournament of the year. Wawrinka never got to defend his 2016 US Open title as he was forced to miss last year’s tournament because of a knee injury. His ranking has fallen from No. 3 to No. 151 after he needed two left knee surgeries that have limited him to just 21 matches on tour this season. Azarenka has twice won the Australian Open and was the US Open runner-up in 2012 and 2013, but she didn’t play in Flushing Meadows last year because of a custody dispute with her son’s father. She is ranked No. 87, one spot ahead of Kuznetsova, the 2004 US Open champion who won the title recently in Washington.
Flanagan to defend NYC crown

Flanagan, now 37, became the first US woman to win the NYC Marathon since Miki Gorman in 1977; Kamworor of Kenya earned his first major marathon victory. Flanagan won in 2 hours, 26 minutes, 53 seconds last year, beating Mary Keitany of Kenya. Flanagan had the second-fastest time by a US woman at the event in just her second NYC Marathon. She finished runner-up in 2010.
Alonso to leave F1; IndyCar next?
Two-time champion Fernando Alonso will leave Formula One at the end of the season and potentially move to IndyCar in the United States. McLaren Racing confirmed the Spaniard will not return to F1 next year for an 18th season, and Alonso said F1’s leadership group tried to persuade him to stay with the series. ‘‘I made this decision some months ago and it was a firm one,’’ Alonso said in a statement. Alonso, 37, has 32 career F1 wins, 22 poles and 97 podiums. He won two world titles and was runner-up three times.
Predators lock down Ellis
Nashville Predators defenseman Ryan Ellis signed an eight-year deal worth $50 million that keeps under contract through the 2026-27 season. The 27-year-old Ellis will earn $6.25 million annually starting in 2019-20. He has one year remaining on the five-year, $12.5 million contract he signed on Oct. 5, 2014. Ellis has spent his entire NHL career with the Predators. The Predators now have three of their top four defensemen (Ellis, P.K. Subban, and Mattias Ekholm) signed through the 2021-22 season and Roman Josi signed through 2019-20.
UConn, Tennessee renew rivalry
Connecticut and Tennessee plan to face each other in women’s basketball during the 2019-20 and 2020-21 seasons, renewing a rivalry that has been dormant since 2007. UConn will host Tennessee during the 2019-20 season, with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the Pat Summitt Foundation and Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. The teams will meet again in Knoxville in 2020-21 with portions of the proceeds benefiting the Pat Summitt Foundation, Naismith Memorial Hall of Fame, and Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame. Summitt coached Tennessee to eight national championships but stepped down in 2012, one year after announcing she had been diagnosed with early-onset dementia, Alzheimer’s type. She died in June 2016 at the age of 64, and her foundation is dedicated to the fight against Alzheimer’s. UConn and Tennessee have combined for 19 national titles . . . Suffolk Downs was granted approval from the Massachusetts Gaming Commission to add a fourth weekend of live racing this season with the funding to come from the Racehorse Development Fund. The track will host the fourth and final live racing and food truck festival weekend Sept. 15-16 . . . Arkansas prosecutors have dropped domestic violence charges against former middleweight boxing champion Jermain Taylor after his accuser halted contact with authorities. The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reported Taylor, 40, was scheduled to stand trial on a felony terroristic threatening charge and a misdemeanor domestic battery charge. But on Monday, prosecutors said they haven’t been able to find or contact the woman who levied the accusations. Police in the Little Rock suburb of Maumelle arrested Taylor in July 2017 on a disturbance call. A woman alleged that Taylor bit her on the arm and face and threatened to kill her. Taylor was a professional boxer until a 2011 boxing match left him severely injured. He’s currently serving a six-year suspended sentence after pleading guilty in 2015 to nine charges, including shooting his cousin in the leg.
