Boston put the star second baseman Dustin Pedroia on the 10-day disabled list for the third time this season because of knee trouble.

The Red Sox, who lead the American League East, made the move before playing at Yankee Stadium on Saturday. It was retroactive to Thursday.

Pedroia, who is out with inflammation, has been hobbled by knee problems since being injured during a slide by the Baltimore Orioles’ Manny Machado on April 21.

Pedroia, 33, leads the team with a .303 batting average and a .378 on-base percentage.

MARLINS CONFIRM DEAL Miami President David Samson confirmed that a signed agreement had been submitted to Major League Baseball to sell the team to a group that includes the former Yankees captain Derek Jeter. Samson said the M.L.B. ownership committee will review the transaction Wednesday at the owners’ meetings in Chicago. The Marlins expect that owners will approve the deal in September and that the closing will follow in early October.

BRUCE POWERS INDIANS Jay Bruce drove in his first two runs for the Cleveland Indians, and Mike Clevinger struck out nine in a 3-0 victory over the host Tampa Bay Rays.

Bruce, who was acquired in a trade from the Mets on Wednesday, drove in the first run with a two-out double in the first inning. He added a run-scoring single in the fifth.

HARPER HURTS KNEE Washington outfielder Bryce Harper left the Nationals’ game against the visiting San Francisco Giants with an apparent left knee injury.

Harper was running out a ground ball in the first inning when he avoided contact with Giants first baseman Ryder Jones and slipped on the base. He was unable to put weight on his injured leg as he was helped from the field.

Miami placed quarterback Ryan Tannehill on injured reserve with a left knee injury, ending his season.

Tannehill will have surgery to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament, multiple news media outlets reported.

Jay Cutler, who parted with the Chicago Bears after eight seasons, agreed on Monday to delay his network television career and signed a one-year, $10 million contract to replace Tannehill.

Tannehill missed the final four games of last season with two sprained ligaments in his knee, and he reinjured it a week into training camp.

JETS EDGE TITANS The veteran quarterback Josh McCown threw for 72 yards and a touchdown on the opening drive of the Jets’ 7-3 victory over the visiting Tennessee Titans in the preseason opener for both teams.

Christian Hackenberg, a second-round pick in 2016, took over for McCown and played until late in the third quarter and completed 18 of 25 passes for 127 yards.

The Jets defense recorded eight sacks in the game and limited Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota to 15 passing yards in two series in his first game back since breaking his right leg on Dec. 24 against Jacksonville.

Roger Federer advanced to the Rogers Cup final in Montreal with a 6-3, 7-6 (5) victory over the unseeded Robin Haase of the Netherlands to extend his winning streak to 16 matches, his longest since 2012.

A victory would give Federer, the third-ranked player in the world, one of the top two seeds at the United States Open, which begins Aug. 28.
