ARLINGTON http://www.giantsfanproshop.com/authentic-evan-longoria-jersey , Texas (AP) r12; Cleveland Indians rookie shortstop Eric Stamets has tried to approach this spring training like any other even though her17;ll start the season opener Thursday with three-time All-Star Francisco Lindor on the injured list because of a calf strain.Stamets hit a grand slam in the fourth inning, his first home run of the spring, and the Indians beat the Texas Rangers 10-1 on Monday night.r0;If my namer17;s up in the lineup, then Ir17;m going to play,r1; said Stamets, who went 2 for 4 and is hitting .250 with one spring training game left. r0;If itr17;s not, then Ir17;ll just do my best to do my role as a teammate.r0;I wouldnr17;t say it was the best spring. I wouldnr17;t say it was the worst spring. I worked on some things in the offseason with my swing. Defensively, Ir17;ve made the plays.r1;Kevin Plawecki added a two-run homer in the ninth, and Greg Allen had a bases-loaded triple in the eighth.Carlos Carrasco allowed one run and five hits in 5 2/3 innings for Cleveland. He struck out four, walked one and hit two batters with pitches.r0;I think our five starters have pitched well this spring,r1; Indians manager Terry Francona said. r0;Lineup-wise wer17;re a little banged up Brandon Belt Jersey , but itr17;s nice to know your17;re going to run those guys out there every day r17;cause theyr17;re all good.r1;Ronald Guzman hit his team-leading fifth homer of the spring for Texas.Rangers starter Edinson Volquez, who missed last season following Tommy John surgery, gave up four runs and five hits in 3 1/3 innings. He walked three and plunked one batter with a pitch.r0;Obviously, he kind of ran out of gas there at the end,r1; manager Chris Woodward said. r0;First couple of innings were really good. He was sharp, felt great.r1;FATHER-SON MOMENTBefore the game, the lineup cards were exchanged by Rangers bench coach Don Wakamatsu and his son, Indians minor league shortstop Luke Wakamatsu. Luke played the final four innings and singled in his only at-bat and scored.r0;It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience,r1; said Luke Wakamatsu, who graduated from nearby Keller High.TRAINERr17;S ROOMIndians 3B Jose Ramirez took grounders at the teamr17;s complex in Arizona after leaving Sundayr17;s exhibition game with a bruised left knee. Ramirez will rejoin the team Wednesday in Minnesota for the workout day before Thursdayr17;s opener against the Twins. While Francona wouldnr17;t say Ramirez will play Thursday, he said Mondayr17;s session was r0;a pretty good indicator her17;s doing all right.r1;RANGERS MOVESRHP Zach McAllister http://www.giantsfanproshop.com/authentic-evan-longoria-jersey , signed to a $1 million non-guaranteed contract in January, was placed on unconditional release waivers. r30; RHPs Matt Bush and Rafael Montero were assigned to minor league camp to continue rehabilitation from offseason surgery.UP NEXTIndians RHP Mike Clevinger will close out the two exhibition games at Texas with his fourth spring start. In 13 2/3 innings, Clevinger has allowed 13 hits, struck out 16 and walked six. Rangers LHP Drew Smyly has pitched 9 1/3 innings in four spring starts after being limited by a March 2017 elbow injury to one minor league appearance during the past two years. HOUSTON (AP) r12; Seattler17;s Felix Hernandez has lost his spot in the rotation in the wake of his latest terrible start in a season filled with struggles.The right-hander, who threw a perfect game in 2012, will pitch out of the bullpen for the first time in his career. Her17;s having the worst season of 14-year career as the Mariners chase their first playoff berth since 2001. Hernandez has a career-high 5.73 ERA this season and is 0-4 in his last five starts, capped by a clunker against the Rangers on Tuesday when he allowed a career-high 11 runs r12; seven earned r12; on eight hits in six innings.The six-time All-Star and 2010 AL Cy Young Award winner, who earned the nickname King Felix for his majestic presence on the mound, trotted from the dugout to the bullpen after the third inning Thursday night against Houston but did not pitch. Manager Scott Servais announced the decision postgame.Servais said he spoke with Hernandez before the game and informed him of the decision. Hernandez has spent his entire career with the Mariners, where all his 398 appearances have been as a starter.r0;Her17;s done an unbelievable job as a Mariner,r1; Servais said. r0;And I certainly donr17;t take any of this lightly http://www.giantsfanproshop.com/authentic-evan-longoria-jersey , but I just think trying to make the best decision for the ballclub and really the best decision for Felix at this point is just take a breath. Step back, gather yourself.r1;Servais said the conversation was a difficult one.r0;Certainly, respect him and everything her17;s done here throughout his career, but these things happen and ultimately itr17;s about the team,r1; he said. r0;Itr17;s never easy but again hopefully he takes it the right way. Her17;ll get a chance to pitch at some point down there and maybe he can work his way back in the rotation. Wer17;ll see. Her17;ll let us know on that.r1;Hernandez declined to speak to reporters when approached after the game.The 32-year-old right-hander is 168-124 with a 3.32 ERA in his career. But after posting an AL-leading and career-best 2.14 ERA in 2014, Hernandez has become increasingly less dominant each year, bottoming out this season by going 8-10 in 23 starts.Hernandez got two wins to end the month of June before a terrible July where he went 0-3, with the lowlight coming when he allowed six hits and seven runs in just 2 2/3 innings of an 11-5 loss to the Angels.Servais said the team hasnr17;t decided who will take Hernandezr17;s spot in the rotation Sunday in the finale of this four-game series.
