Major League Notebook

Associated Press
The baseball notebook …
NEW YORK ó Chien-Ming Wang was in a car, about 70 miles from New York City and headed to Pawtucket, R.I., when he received a call. Joba Chamberlain had been hit by a line drive, so the Yankees wanted him to turn around.
Instead of making a rehab start Friday night for Scranton/Wilkes-Barre at Pawtucket, he returned to the Yankees to aid a bullpen depleted by extra work and the loss once again of setup man Brian Bruney.
Wang wound up pitching three innings in Friday night’s 7-3 loss to Philadelphia, allowing two run and six hits. Still, he lowered his ERA from 34.50 to 25.00.
FUNERAL PLANS
OAKLAND, Calif. ó The Arizona Diamondbacks will be represented by several pitchers at Monday’s memorial service for the wife of reliever Scott Schoeneweis.
The funeral is in the morning ó and Arizona will be getting ready to play a home day game against San Diego.
“It’s obviously a tough time for everybody,” manager A.J. Hinch said. “We want to be there for him. If it were a night game we’d have chartered a bus.”
Schoeneweis returned to the Phoenix area after his wife, Gabrielle, was found dead at their home Wednesday. The team still had little information about her death, Hinch said.
“I assume they’re going through the medical procedures,” he said. “We’re respecting his privacy. Our thoughts and prayers are with him.”
Schoeneweis was placed on the bereavement list and left the team when he received the news before a doubleheader at Florida on Wednesday.
INDIANS PITCHERS
CINCINNATI ó In only eight innings, the Cleveland Indians’ pitching staff became more of a mess.
The Indians put right-handed starter Anthony Reyes and left-handed reliever Aaron Laffey on the 15-day disabled list Saturday, a day after both were forced to leave a game because of injuries. The Indians now have six players on the disabled list, five of them pitchers.
HARDYMINNEAPOLIS ó The Milwaukee Brewers are holding shortstop J.J. Hardy out of the lineup for the rest of their series at Minnesota because of back spasms.
