DODGERS: The $2 billion sale of the team was finalized Tuesday, ending the era under ex-owner Frank McCourt, who took the team into bankruptcy and had his private life made public through a divorce battle with his ex-wife.

CARDINALS: Are wasting no time honoring Tony La Russa, announcing they will retire their former manager’s No. 10 prior to their game against Atlanta on May 11.

La Russa retired last fall after leading the franchise to a second World Series title in his 16 seasons. He left the game ranked third all-time in managerial victories, trailing Connie Mack and John McGraw.

RAYS: Third baseman Evan Longoria was put on the 15-day disabled list with a partially torn left hamstring that’s expected to sideline him four to eight weeks.

The three-time All-Star was injured Monday night while running to second base on an attempted steal against Seattle. He remained on the ground for a moment before climbing to his feet and walking to the dugout without assistance.

INDIANS: Johnny Damon has joined the team and manager Manny Acta plans to put his new outfielder in tonight’s starting lineup. The team purchased Damon’s contract Tuesday and made room on the roster by designating infielder Jose Lopez for assignment.
