CLEVELAND (AP) — , throwing 40 pitches off the mound inside an empty Progressive Field on Saturday.It was a positive step in the All-Star right-hander’s recovery from a broken leg that has kept him out of the rotation for more than a month.Bauer has been sidelined since Aug. 11 with a stress fracture in his right leg, which happened when he was struck by a line drive in Chicago. Earlier this week, he completed a bullpen session in Tampa and followed it with a workout that was closely monitored by team president Chris Antonetti, pitching coach Carl Williams and team trainers.“Felt good,” Bauer said afterward. “Mechanics were a little out of sequence, but I haven’t really been on a mound a whole lot in a month and a half. I expect those will come back pretty quickly. Physically it felt good.”Bauer said it was difficult to replicate game conditions, but he did all he could to mimic competing against major league hitters in a loud ballpark.“There’s no adrenaline in a bullpen session,” he said. “As much as you try to compete with yourself or trick yourself mentally or whatever, it’s just not there. So hopefully I can face hitters next Manuel Margot Jersey , get some people out here talking and yelling at some hitters, stuff like that, try to get the adrenaline up.“That’d be nice.”The Indians think it would be nice if they could count on Bauer in October. The 27-year-old was having his best season and had moved into Cy Young consideration when he was nailed by a line drive hit by Chicago’s Jose Abreu.Bauer remains miffed about the course of his season. Now, though, his focus is getting back and helping anyway he can — whether it’s starting or in relief.There’s not much time left in the regular season and Bauer doesn’t know what the Indians have planned for him before the playoffs begin.“I pitch when they tell me to pitch,” he said. “I feel confident that I’ll be able to compete and help us win in whatever role that is. I come into spring training ready to throw 5-6-7 innings. So, I’ll make that point clear.”Indians manager Terry Francona said Bauer will throw his next bullpen session on Tuesday, and it’s possible he’ll do it with a batter at the plate — to help simulate game situations.“I know Trev wanted to feel like it was Game 7 today,” Francona said. “It’s about impossible.” PEORIA , Ariz. (AP) — The San Diego Padres‘ present got a lot better last week when they signed Manny Machado to play third base.The future up the middle looks very bright as well, with Fernando Tatis Jr. and Luis Urias coming through the system.Both were in the Padres’ lineup on Sunday when San Diego played the Chicago White Sox in spring training. Urias, batting second, went 0 for 3 with two strikeouts but made a sparkling play in the field to take an infield hit away from Ryan Goins. Tatis, in the fifth spot, was 0 for 1 with a walk, and scored on the second of Aderlin Rodriguez’s two-run homers in a 5-4 Padres victory.“He’s unreal,” Urias said of Tatis. “He has a lot of energy and he brings a lot of that to the team. He can do it all.”But Urias figures to come first. The 21-year-old from Mexico has been a second baseman since he signed with the Padres, but may open the season at shortstop with the veteran Ian Kinsler brought in to play second base this season for San Diego.“I’m just starting to keep my routine Austin Hedges Jersey ,” Urias said. “I don’t know where I’m going to play short or second. I’ve been playing second base most of the time. I signed as a shortstop but I don’t mind playing either one.”Soon, though, the 20-year-old Tatis will be joining him.Tatis is the No. 2-ranked prospect in baseball according to and Baseball America. His father was a third baseman in the majors and once hit two grand slams in one inning for the St. Louis Cardinals. Tatis Jr., at age 19, hit .286 with 16 homers at San Antonio, the Padres’ Double-A affiliate.Urias is a highly touted prospect as well. He did make a brief appearance n the big leagues last year, batting .208 with a pair of homers in 48 at-bats before being sidelined with a hamstring injury, but he says he isready to go.For his career in the minors, he has hit .306 with a .397 on-base percentage.“It’s just natural Carlos Asuaje Jersey , since I was little,” Urias said of his selective strike zone. “I was kind of like the hitter who put the ball in play. I have been refining my approach every year, just trying to get better, but I know my type of game and I just want to get on base.“We’re always improving something. I’m pretty excited to be back because i hurt my hamstring at the end of the year so I’m pretty happy right now because I’m healthy,” he said.Manager Andy Green is anxious to see how well Machado can mesh with his young teammates — which could be a long-time combination for the Padres, given that Machado is only 26 and signed through 2028.“A great player is going to raise everyone else’s level of expectation of quality of play,” Green said.
