Reds 3B Frazier honored by Dr. Heimlich

CINCINNATI — Dr. Henry Heimlich presented Cincinnati Reds third baseman Todd Frazier with a life-saving award on Tuesday before a game against the Milwaukee Brewers.

Frazier used the Heimlich maneuver on a choking restaurant customer during a series in Pittsburgh in late May. Heimlich, who moved to Cincinnati in the 1960s, went on the field and gave Frazier a certificate and a plaque for saving a life.

Frazier and teammate Ryan Ludwick were eating dinner at a Pittsburgh restaurant when they noticed a customer choking. Frazier used the maneuver to dislodge a piece of meat from the man's throat.

MOYER AGREES TO MINOR LEAGUE DEAL: Jamie Moyer may not be finished quite yet.

The Toronto Blue Jays have signed the 49-year-old left-hander to a minor league deal.

The Blue Jays say Moyer will make two starts for Triple-A Las Vegas, then Toronto will decide whether to bring him back to the majors.

LONG SUSPENSION FOR HERNANDEZ?: Cleveland Indians general manager Chris Antonetti said he doesn't think the pitcher formerly known as Fausto Carmona will face the same eight-week suspension that Miami reliever Juan Carlos Oviedo received for age and identity fraud when he was allowed to return to the United States.

Roberto Hernandez has been on the restricted list since last winter when he was arrested in the Dominican Republic for false identity charges. He was cleared of those charges in February after completing a work program. Hernandez's contract was reworked for a lower salary at the Indians' request, but Hernandez still awaits a visa.

BUCHHOLZ OUT WITH ESOPHAGUS ISSUE: Red Sox right-hander Clay Buchholz experienced erosion of his esophagus, and the condition caused internal bleeding.

The Red Sox say Buchholz has been evaluated at Massachusetts General Hospital, where he remained Tuesday night as Boston hosted the Toronto Blue Jays. The team says he is doing well.
