Italy lets 27 minors off migrant ship after loosening ban

World
Aug. 17 (UPI) -- Under political heat, Italy's far-right Interior Minister Matteo Salvini reluctantly loosened the ban Saturday to let 27 unaccompanied minors off the stranded migrant rescue ship. The humanitarian ship operated by Spanish nonprofit group Proactiva Open Arms has been stranded off the Italian island of Lampedusa, and an Italian court ruled earlier in the week to allow it to dock in Italy despite Salvini's ban against the ship docking in Italy. Salvini, who came to power with anti-immigrant sentiment, had been in political standoff with Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte before loosening the ban.

Houston Astros' Francis Martes could be headed to minors

Sports
HOUSTON -- Houston rookie right-hander Francis Martes will make his fourth start of the season on Saturday against the New York Yankees, an outing that could be the last in the majors for the Astros' top prospect in the foreseeable future. With right-hander Charlie Morton set to return from the 10-day disabled list next week in Toronto following a month-long rehab from a right lat strain, Martes (2-0, 5.51 ERA) is the likely candidate to cede a spot in the rotation and return to Triple-A Fresno, where he struggled with his command before making his debut on June 9. The Astros were ravaged by injuries to their pitching staff at the time, and while Martes, the youngest pitcher in the American League at 21 years, 198 days old, has scuffled, this experience should aid his development.
