DODGERS: Hall of Fame manager Tom Lasorda was hospitalized in stable condition Tuesday, a day after having a “mild” heart attack while representing the Los Angeles Dodgers at the Major League Baseball draft.

The Dodgers said doctors inserted a stent to repair a blocked artery in Lasorda’s heart. The energetic, enthusiastic 84-year-old was resting comfortably and there was a chance he could return to California today.

“The doctors confirmed I do bleed Dodger Blue. I’m looking forward to being back at the stadium to cheer on the Dodgers,” Lasorda said.

TWINS: Catcher Joe Mauer was out of the lineup for the second consecutive game with a bruised right thumb.

WHITE SOX: First baseman Paul Konerko was scratched from the lineup against the Blue Jays. No reason was given.

RED SOX: Optioned right-handed pitcher Daniel Bard to Triple-A Pawtucket. Manager Bobby Valentine said the club felt Bard (5-6) needs to work on his mechanics before he gets another shot at making the Red Sox rotation.

ANGELS: Placed catcher Bobby Wilson on the seven-day concussion DL and recalled catcher Hank Conger from Triple-A Salt Lake.
