Associated Press

ATLANTA (AP) — Washington Nationals pitcher Jeremy Hellickson may miss the rest of the season after reinjuring his right wrist while batting in the fourth inning of Saturday’s 7-1 win over the Atlanta Braves.Hellickson sprained his right on Aug. 15 when he landed awkwardly while covering home plate after throwing a wild pitch at St. Louis.He made his first appearance since and got hurt again. The 2011 AL Rookie of the Year is scheduled for an MRI on Sunday.Hellickson missed 22 games in June because of a right hamstring strain. He is 5-3 with a 3.45 ERA in 19 starts.“The injuries have been pretty frustrating http://www.padresfanproshop.com/authent … ynn-jersey ,” Hellickson said. “All three were out of my control. To only make 19 starts stinks, so I’ve just got to think about other things and just try to get healthy.”Hellickson grimaced after fouling off the first pitch of his at-bat in the fourth inning, then swung and missed at a low and outside pitch. Hellickson walked to the dugout and was examined by director of athletic training Paul Lessard.Andrew Stevenson pinch hit, took two balls and swung and missed at strike three http://www.padresfanproshop.com/authent … eld-jersey , a strikeout charged to Hellickson. Jefry Rodriguez relieved to start the bottom half.Hellickson allowed two hits and one unearned run in three innings.His injuries have been costly. Hellickson had a $2 million base salary and earned $1.1 million in performance bonuses based on starts. He would have earned $150,000 each for 21 and 23 starts, $300,000 apiece for 25 and 27 Rollie Fingers Jersey , and $500,000 each for every start from 29 to 32. The New York Yankees aren't going to be forced to pay Major League Baseball's luxury tax for the first time ever.According to the Associated Press (h/t ESPN.com), the Bronx Bombers are on pace to finish below the $197 million payroll threshold this season, meaning they won't have to pay the tax for the first time since it was instituted in 2003. They are still spending a significant amount of money with the luxury tax payroll up from $178.8 million at the start of the season to $192.1 million http://www.padresfanproshop.com/authent … nes-jersey , but it is low enough to avoid the penalty.The AP noted the Boston Red Sox and Washington Nationals are the only teams on pace to pay the tax in 2018.The ability to avoid the luxury tax penalty also has implications for the upcoming offseason, as the report pointed out the Yankees and Los Angeles Dodgers will each reset their base tax rates from 50 percent of their total over the threshold to just 20 percent by avoiding it this year.That figures to put both big-market powers in ideal positions to add to their already talented rosters during free agency.New York's big splash this offseason was trading forGiancarloStanton to play alongside Aaron Judge, who has missed significant time with a fractured wrist. It is nine games behind the Boston Red Sox in the American League East but two games ahead of the Oakland Athletics for the first wild-card spot and a comfortable eight games ahead of the Tampa Bay Rays.While the division is essentially out of reach at this point, the Yankees can at least take solace knowing they are headed to the playoffs and won't have to worry about paying the luxury tax.That Johnny Manziel Jersey , in turn, could lead to some marquee additions next offseason with less tax concerns and a threshold that is increasing to $206 million.
