    Dylan Cease was locked in on Sept. 3. The Chicago White Sox right-hander walked Jake Cave in the third inning and Gilberto Celestino in the sixth but didn’t allow anything else through eight innings against the Minnesota Twins at Guaranteed Rate Field. Cease retired the first two batters in the ninth before Luis Arraez spoiled the no-hit bid with a single to right-center. It was a signature performance in a standout season for Cease, who was named a finalist for the American League Cy Young Award on Monday along with Justin Verlander of the Houston Astros and Alek Manoah of the Toronto Blue Jays. Cease, 26, went 14-8 with a 2.20 ERA in 32 starts. He finished second in the AL in ERA, strikeouts (227) and opponents average (.190) and third in strikeouts per nine innings (11.10). “It was a really great season,” Cease said after his final start of the year Oct. 1 in San Diego, giving credit to pitching coach Ethan Katz and catchers Seby Zavala and Yasmani Grandal. “Definitely a lot of improvements.” Cease’s slider was one...
    Kamil Krzaczynski-USA TODAY Sports Chicago sports fans need something to be excited about due to the Bears’ misery. Here are three reasons to get hyped about the Bulls instead.  The Chicago Bulls surprised a lot of NBA fans by surging to a sixth-place finish in the Eastern Conference last year. Billy Donovan’s established nucleus of Zach LaVine, DeMar DeRozan, and Nikola Vucevic have their work cut out for him to duplicate that finish this season. The uncertainty around Lonzo Ball and his mysterious knee injury puts a ton of pressure on Chicago’s veterans to get this team off to a good start. Struggling out of the gates could put the Bulls behind the proverbial eight-ball when it comes to making the playoffs. Optimism in Chicago is rooted in the idea that the team’s veterans can keep playing at a high level while receiving a boost from some internal gains from the younger players on the roster. A new starter at point guard should be one of the most encouraging things for Bulls fans to watch this year.3. Ayo Dosunmu’s energy...
    Jimmy Garoppolo was inserted back into the San Francisco 49ers starting lineup after last weeks injury to Trey Lance, and his performance will likely be remembered for all the wrong reasons. During the third quarter of the 11-10 lose to the Denver Broncos, Garoppolo dropped back too far and stepped out the back of the end zone resulting in a safety as he tried to get a pass off. It was the first time a quarterback had ran out the back of the end zone since ESPN analyst Dan Orlovsky did so during the Detroit Lions 0-16 season in 2008.  What made the moment even better was the fact that Orlovsky quickly took to twitter to express his happiness that he was no longer the only quarterback to committed such a folly after suffering through 14 years of jokes.  Jimmy Garoppolo drops back out of the end zone as he attempts to throw a pass under pressure ESPN analyst and former Detroit Lions QB Dan Orlovsky tweeted in joy that he was no longer the only QB to run out...
    Republican Rep. Nancy Mace is one of the numerous conservative critics of fellow South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham’s (R-SC) proposed national abortion ban, telling CNN on Friday that her own experience with rape gives her pause about the bill. Speaking to John Berman on New Day, Mace pointed out multiple specific issues she has with Graham’s proposal including a requirement for a rape to be reported in order for it to merit an exception in the rule. “We have to have exceptions for women who have been raped, for girls who have been victims of incest,” Mace said. Mace said a requirement for women to come forward is a “non-starter” for her. “The devil’s always in the details. Having a woman who’s a victim of rape, requiring her to report it to police is a non-starter for me. I was raped when I was 16. I know how traumatic that experience can be,” she said. “It’s harrowing. It’s been a life a lifetime of trauma for most women like myself. I can’t imagine the judgement, the fear, that women have...
    Getty Kyle Shanahan on September 18, 2022. “Monday morning quarterbacking” now involves wondering what the San Francisco 49ers will do about their sudden lack of quarterback depth. The 49ers became one less a QB following the devastating Trey Lance injury, as he sustained a broken ankle early in the team’s 27-7 home win over the Seattle Seahawks in Week 2. Per the NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero on Monday, September 19, Lance was scheduled to undergo surgery for his fractured and dislocated ankle. Pelissero mentioned a “small bit of good news” involving Lance. “My understanding is not a compound fracture like Dak Prescott’s,” Pelissero tweeted. “But still a season-ending injury.” Again, the 49ers find themselves in the precarious position of addressing their QB room as they’re now left with Jimmy Garoppolo and 2022 seventh rounder Brock Purdy. Nate Sudfeld drifted off to the Detroit Lions right before the start of the 2022 season. There are names like Ex-49ers QB Colin Kaepernick and former NFL Most Valuable Player Cam Newton floating around as ideas. But now, Doug Kyed...
    SAN FRANCISCO — Giants left-hander Alex Wood won’t throw another pitch this season. After landing on the injured list at the start of this month with a shoulder impingement, Wood, 31, was never cleared to resume throwing. With less than three weeks left in the regular season after Sunday’s series finale against the Dodgers, Wood and the Giants decided to pull the plug. “We’re just in a place where it’s probably not in the cards,” manager Gabe Kapler said, “He hasn’t been cleared yet to resume throwing, so we’re going to shut him down for the rest of the season.” Wood, who declined reporters’ interview requests before Sunday’s game, had hoped to resume throwing this weekend, but he was never medically cleared. His last start came Aug. 31, allowing four runs over 4⅔ innings in a loss to Pittsburgh, before being placed on the IL on Sept. 3. With 16 games left this season and the Giants out of contention, there was no longer the time nor the necessity for Wood to return this season. Under contract for $12.5 million...
    SANTA CLARA — It seems a lot of people are feeling sorry for Jimmy G. The poor guy, exiled to a side field during training camp, his job as 49ers quarterback taken from him by coach Kyle Shanahan and handed to a neophyte in Trey Lance. Am I alone in thinking Garoppolo isn’t an aggrieved party as he awaits his exodus from a franchise that paid him more than $113 million over four years? Garoppolo wasn’t around during media viewing sessions Monday or Tuesday. Before that, the Garoppolo I’ve seen on an adjacent practice field hasn’t looked hangdog at all. He’s got a big smile on his face, and is going through the paces of getting ready for a new assignment that could come at any time. If Garoppolo has a problem with how the 49ers handled this, then either he or his agent Don Yee should say something. Make no mistake, if Garoppolo had made himself a distraction by speaking out publicly while Lance is preparing to take over, then he’d have been out the door by now. He...
    Growing up, Dylan Cease always looked forward to watching a Justin Verlander start. “Just the fact that, especially back in the day, he would start out at 92 (mph) and finish at 101,” Cease said Monday. “I remember watching him a lot as a kid and seeing that. The fact that I’m here now and he’s still doing it, it’s pretty rare.” Cease and Verlander, candidates for the American League Cy Young Award, are the scheduled starters Tuesday when the Chicago White Sox continue their four-game series with the Houston Astros at Guaranteed Rate Field. “You got Cease for us has been killing it, and Verlander has been doing it for so long,” Sox outfielder AJ Pollock said. “I’m sure people will be tuned in. Yeah, it’s quite a matchup for fans.” The 39-year-old Verlander, in his 17th season, leads the majors in wins (15), ERA (1.85) and WHIP (0.86). Cease said one thing that stands out about Verlander is “he’s consistently in the strike zone.” Verlander told reporters Monday that while he hasn’t seen Cease much, he is impressed...
    Getty Nets teammates Seth Curry and Kevin Durant celebrate following the James Harden trade during the 2021-22 season. The Brooklyn Nets have many decisions to make this offseason, and there’s none more important than what to do with Kevin Durant. With the star forward requesting a trade, and then reiterating that desire in a meeting with team owner Joe Tsai, there’s a large shadow being cast over the franchise. While the Nets figure out how to handle the Durant situation, they have some other things they have to take care of. On August 11, both Seth Curry and Ben Simmons became extension eligible. It’s unlikely the team will offer extensions to either player, but of the two, Curry seems more likely. According to The Athletic’s Alex Schiffer, Curry is eligible for four-year, $58 million extension. He lays out a few reasons on why they should avoid doing that at the moment, but also reveals the Nets haven’t shut the door on it happening in the future.Curry Could Still Sign Read More From Heavy Place a ‘No Sweat First...

    Chicago White Sox starter Dylan Cease was named the American League Pitcher of the Month for June, Major League Baseball announced Saturday. Cease went 2-1 with a 0.33 ERA, 45 strikeouts and a .192 opponents average in five June starts. He’s the first Sox pitcher to win the award since Lucas Giolito in May 2019. Cease struck out a career-high 13 batters in seven innings Tuesday against the Baltimore Orioles at Guaranteed Rate Field. He is 6-3 with a 2.56 ERA and 121 strikeouts in 15 starts this season. Cease started Saturday against the San Francisco Giants at Oracle Park. ()

    It’s the type of win teams remember when building a successful season. The Chicago White Sox were down but not out Saturday against the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park. Trailing by a run entering the ninth, the White Sox rallied to tie the game. They went ahead in the 10th with RBI hits by José Abreu and Luis Robert and held on for an impressive 3-1 comeback victory in front of 33,026. “We had a really rough April and to win this kind of game gives us hope,” Robert said through an interpreter. “Our hope is up, our confidence is up. Everything is up.” The White Sox were down 1-0 going into the ninth. Jake Burger walked and Adam Engel doubled, giving them runners on second and third with no outs. Burger scored on second baseman Leury García’s sacrifice fly to right. Robert made a nice play running down Christian Vázquez’s hit in the gap in the bottom of the ninth, limiting him to a double and making Jackie Bradley Jr. stop at third. “As soon as I saw...
    Ryan Poles made four trades Saturday in the final day of the draft but the deal the Chicago Bears general manager could not make was finding a taker for veteran quarterback Nick Foles. That led the team to agree to release the veteran and former Super Bowl MVP, allowing Foles to become a free agent and search for his next team. NFL Media reported the move Saturday night. Foles’ contract called for him to receive a fully-guaranteed $4 million roster bonus on the fifth day of the current league year in March. He was due to earn a $4 million base salary this season with $1 million of it also fully guaranteed. The Bears effectively replaced Foles, 33, in free agency when they signed veteran Trevor Siemian to be their No. 2 quarterback behind Justin Fields. Foles did not attend the voluntary minicamp earlier this month at Halas Hall. Poles was asked about Foles’ status earlier Saturday evening but didn’t offer an update. “We haven’t gotten there yet,” he said. “Obviously, we’ll update you when the next move happens. We’ve...
    “I know I have to find my way back in,” Kaepernick admitted. “So, yeah, if I have to come in as a backup, that fine. But that’s not where I’m staying. And when I prove that I’m a starter, I want to be able to step on the field as such. I just need that opportunity to walk through the door. ... More than anything, we’re just looking for a chance to walk through a door. I’ll handle the rest from there.” He added that chances seem few and far between, as no teams have brought him in for a workout. "No team has brought me in for an opportunity," he said. "I had the one meeting with Seattle in 2017. And out of that, Pete Carroll said, ‘Hey, he’s a starter, we have a starter.’ And things moved on from there. But they don’t have a starter right now.” Marshall, according to the outlet, then played the role of a fictional GM to pose questions to Kaepernick of "What about our fan base?" and "What do we...
    Getty Les Snead shares a hug with Cooper Kupp following the Rams' Super Bowl 56 victory on Sunday, February 13. Even a team like the Los Angeles Rams, featuring a general manager in Les Snead who jokingly paraded and caroused while wearing a T-shirt of himself with an expletive describing his feelings for the draft, can take the NFL Draft seriously when it comes time for it. And a team like the Super Bowl champs, along with the other 31 teams, are likely thinking about their “dream draft target” for April. But if it’s not the Rams who are thinking about who they can lure in, it’s certainly NFL analysts. Either way, the draft is about two months away and the Rams won’t select anyone until the 103rd overall pick — meaning they won’t take part of the Thursday, April 28 festivities but will hold off until Friday’s session. Via Bleacher Report’s Alex Kay on Thursday, February 24, the Rams could go “all in” on bolstering a crucial area that will need an upgrade...
    The Hotline has published biannual Quarterback Comfort Quotient (QBCQ) rankings for years. Never has there been a better example of the process than what we witnessed in Salt Lake City in the fall of 2021. Utah was No. 1 in our QBCQ rankings prior to the season because the Utes possessed not only a proven starter but also a capable backup. Admittedly, we didn’t expect the starter, Charlie Brewer, to stumble and the backup, Cameron Rising, to lead the Utes to the conference title. But the situation proved exactly why having two capable quarterbacks is critical. Whether it’s because of injury or substandard play, the starter is unlikely to take every meaningful snap. Teams with quality Plan Bs are best equipped to navigate the season. Welcome to the first Pac-12 QBCQ rankings of 2022, and please note: — We’ll publish a revised version after spring practice.

    Donald Trump's attempt to overturn the 2020 election — which involved pressuring countless officials to do all sorts of dubious things, as well fomenting a violent attack on the U.S. Capitol — has come into greater focus this past week as state and federal officials continue to investigate the former president and his allies on numerous different legal fronts. But investigations of the ex-president's conduct around the Jan. 6 uprising don't represent all the potential legal trouble Trump faces. At the very least, there are also both civil and criminal investigations in New York into his company's business practices — mostly or entirely unrelated to his presidency — along with a criminal probe in Atlanta that might be the sleeper in this panoply of potential jeopardy Washington, D.C.

    Getty Avery Bradley, left, tries to guard the Warriors' Stephen Curry. In a way, he can bee seen as a symbol for the way the Lakers’ season has gone—and, at the same time, a symbol for how the Warriors’ NBA-best season has gone. That would be guard Avery Bradley who, if you go back to the final week of training camp, was the favorite to win the final spot in the Warriors’ rotation. Veterans Stephen Curry and Draymond Green were said to be pulling for him, hoping to have as much experience on the roster as possible. “Stephen Curry and Draymond Green were among a group of strong advocates for keeping Bradley,” Marcus Thompson of The Athletic wrote. Alas, the Warriors cut him. And they’re 18-2. That left the Lakers to sign Bradley, and he has not exactly thrived in L.A. They’re 11-11. In fact, injuries have forced him into a starting role and Bradley has proven to be among the worst starters in the NBA to this point this season. He has shot 30.2% from the 3-point...

He could tell by the fastball. The pitch was working for Braves starter Max Fried in a way that it had not in the bullpen before his last start. The warm-up pitches were zipping into his catcher’s glove with the same lively movement that had bedeviled so many opposing hitters this year.

    The 25 greatest action hero names of all time How Many Full-Time Workers Were in Poverty the Year You Were Born When the NFL scheduled tonight's Thursday Night Football matchup between the Denver Broncos and Cleveland Browns, they probably weren't envisioning Case Keenum and D'Ernest Johnson versus a hobbled Teddy Bridgewater. Like Mick Jagger said, you can't always get what you want. But, if you try sometimes, you might find two player props on BetMGM that are just what you need. Here's what I'm playing tonight: Case Keenum over 18.5 pass completions Running backs Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt will miss tonight's game with injuries, as will starting quarterback Baker Mayfield. However, wide receiver Jarvis Landry was activated off injured reserve today, which is a big boon for replacement QB Keenum and the Browns' passing game. Keenum is one of the better backup quarterbacks in the league and is highly familiar with head coach Kevin Stefanski's offense. Stefanski was the quarterbacks coach in Minnesota in 2017 when Keenum went 11-3 as the starter, throwing for 19 or more completions...

    (CBS New York) – Less than 24 hours after losing to Sam Darnold, Robby Anderson, and the Carolina Panthers the Jets have added injury to insult with the news starting safety Lamarcus Joyner is likely done for the year. Joyner was unable to make it through the very first game of the season and early tests show an apparent torn tendon in his arm. Further evaluations are still needed, but season-ending surgery seems likely. Joyner was signed this past off-season to start opposite Marcus Maye and serve as a veteran presence amongst the team’s inexperienced defensive backfield. Joyner registered only one tackle in Gang Green’s opening contest but was playing well in coverage and limiting deep shots down field before exiting the game.

    SAN FRANCISCO — With first place in the National League West on the line Sunday at Oracle Park, the Dodgers will hand the ball to Cy Young favorite, Walker Buehler. The Giants will counter with reliever Dominic Leone, who has pitched in 283 major league games but never as a starter. How did it come to this? Why are the Giants asking one of their set-up men to throw the first inning of a pivotal game against their rivals? And why are the Giants using Leone as an “opener” the day after right-hander Jay Jackson gave up three earned runs in 1/3 of an inning in the same role? The short answer is that veteran Johnny Cueto, who was lined up to pitch Sunday, landed on the 10-day injured list earlier this week with a right elbow strain. Another starter expected to face the Dodgers this weekend, lefty Alex Wood, tested positive for COVID-19 on Monday and is still symptomatic. To understand how the Giants ended up with back-to-back bullpen games in a key...
    At the dawn of the 2021 season, the state of quarterback play in the Pac-12 appears fragile. If a handful of veterans elevate their performance — USC’s Kedon Slovis, UCLA’s Dorian Thompson-Robinson and ASU’s Jayden Daniels, to name three — then the collective output should approach the standard set in previous years. If their inconsistency continues and none of the touted newcomers emerge, this could be the worst season for quarterbacks the Pac-12 has experienced in eons. Welcome to the final, murkiest installment in our series previewing the 2021 Pac-12 season. We delayed publication of the Quarterback Comfort Quotient (QBCQ) rankings to this point — two days before kickoffs — in order to create maximum clarity.

    DENVER (CBS4) – Drew Lock will start the Broncos’ exhibition opener, not because of anything he’s done at training camp, but because he’s been in Denver longer than Teddy Bridgewater.

    Trey Lance is already turning heads with his play at San Francisco 49ers training camp. The San Francisco 49ers traded up to No. 3 in the 2021 NFL Draft to take Trey Lance out of North Dakota State for a reason. While he essentially only had one year’s worth of starts for the FCS powerhouse, Lance offered perhaps the greatest upside of any signal-caller taken in the first round of last spring’s draft. Though he will probably be backing up Jimmy Garoppolo at least initially this season, Lance is already doing things in 49ers camp that could have him pushing for the starting quarterback job.

    Two months from training camp and three from the start of a momentous season for the Pac-12, the state of play at the most important position remains extraordinarily muddled. Muddled by the paucity of entrenched starters. Muddled by the prevalence of new arrivals. Muddled by the lingering impact of 2020 injuries. Only six teams have a reasonable degree of quarterback clarity, while a handful should require name tags in the meeting room. The most statistically accomplished quarterback in the conference, Utah’s Charlie Brewer, was in the Big 12 in 2020, while the most competitively accomplished, USC’s Kedon Slovis, has just a dozen career victories. In the latest edition of the Quarterback Comfort Quotient (QBCQ) rankings, the Hotline attempts to make sense of it all.

    Getty Los Angeles Lakers sideline during game. Based on how this season has gone, it appears that the New York Knicks are officially back. They are currently the fourth seed in the Eastern Conference and look like legit contenders for the first time in a long time. However, they are still a couple of pieces away from building a consistent title threat. One position that they need to address is starting point guard. Elfrid Payton is a solid player but not a star. Derrick Rose is one of the best sixth men in the NBA but his days as a starter are in the past. The Knicks know they need a starting point guard and they are going to swing for the fences this offseason and could also target a Los Angeles Lakers starter, according to Ian Begley of SNY. “They’re keeping an eye on Damian Lillard and any other star who may seek a trade if things go sideways with their current franchises,” Begley wrote. “They also have guards like Dennis Schroder, Lonzo Ball and – per...
    Can Domingo German be a trustworthy starter for the Yankees? By: Andres Chavez April 23, 2021 ShareTweetFlipRedditAfter everything that happened in the past, the New York Yankees decided to give pitcher Domingo German a second chance. He missed the whole 2020 season while serving a suspension for a domestic violence incident, but the team opted to move on after several apologies, public and private. On the field, everything was going smoothly during spring training. He was missing bats with all of his pitches, and was destined to have a great start of the season for the Yankees. However, after two mediocre outings, he was optioned to the alternate training site because the team wouldn’t need a fifth starter for a while. He returned and had a pretty rough beginning to his outing against Cleveland on Thursday, giving up three early runs, but settled down to earn a quality start by hurling six innings with three runs (two earned) and six strikeouts. For the season, his ERA stands at 6.23, with a...
    The league has gone abuzz with the San Francisco 49ers trading up for the 3rd overall pick in the upcoming NFL Draft. Many see this as the possibility of Jimmy Garoppolo moving on from the franchise.  But what could this potentially mean for Cam Newton and the New England Patriots? One NFL reporter feels that the recent rollercoaster of events could impact Newton’s chances of starting Week 1 in 2021. Jimmy Garoppolo still an option for the Patriots The San Francisco 49ers gave away heavy draft capital to the Miami Dolphins to claim the 3rd overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. This has prompted many to believe that the franchise will be drafting in a new QB with the pick.  This of course leaves the future of former New England Patriots player Jimmy Garoppolo in jeopardy. And going by the looks of it, it’s set to have a ripple effect on Cam Newton’s future as well.  During a segment of Get Up, NFL reporter Dianna Russini said going by her sources, Cam Newton isn’t a guaranteed starter for the...
    Battle for the New York Mets’ fifth starter job is not over By: Andres Chavez March 15, 2021 ShareTweetFlipRedditThe New York Mets boast enviable pitching depth after going to the market and acquiring Taijuan Walker, one of the few reliable starters available, a few weeks ago. The popular belief is that the first four members of the rotation are set, with Jacob deGrom, Marcus Stroman, Carlos Carrasco (provided he can make it in time as he tries to shake off some elbow soreness) and Walker expected to take the ball in the team’s first four games. The fifth spot of the Mets’ rotation, however, is still up for grabs. David Peterson had a so-so outing on Sunday, in which he allowed three runs on five hits in four innings, and coupled with Jordan Yamamoto’s impressive spring (1.08 ERA in three outings), it makes the race even more interesting. Joey Lucchesi (two shutout innings) is fighting, too. “There’s plenty to take away from today,” Peterson told reporters over Zoom. “Plenty to work...
    Reaction to Pac-12 developments on and off the field … 1. News in the North Eight weeks after he won the Pac-12 championship and six weeks after indicating he would return in 2021 “hungrier than ever,” Oregon quarterback Tyler Shough is transferring. Shough made the announcement Friday, and it’s a surprise in this regard: Starting quarterbacks with eligibility remaining rarely enter the transfer portal before they lose the job. Typically, they participate in offseason conditioning, compete in spring practice and then assess the situation. Or they offer a spirited defense through training camp and then enter the transfer portal. But a returning starter bailing before the first snap of spring? It doesn’t happen often. We won’t speculate on the reason for Shough’s decision — perhaps there were personal considerations. And there’s always a chance, albeit unlikely, that he will reverse course and return to Eugene. For now, let’s assume Shough, who led the conference in passing efficiency, is gone for good. Given that development, our projection for the North division in 2021 … doesn’t change one iota. The Hotline picked...
    For those unfamiliar with the Quarterback Comfort Quotient, our periodic offseason examination of depth charts across the Pac-12, it’s based on the following premise: The backup quarterback is the least important player on the roster … until he’s the most important. As a result, the QBCQ ranking below assesses the quality of the starters and the proven reliability of the backups. After scouring rosters, we can report the ideal combination does not currently exist. That could change in coming months as seniors make stay-or-go decisions and the transfer portal works its magic. (We’ll revisit the QBCQ following spring practice, then again at the close of training camp.) Notes: — Not all returnees have been listed — Where incoming transfers are named, I have included their former team. — Pac-12 players who have entered the portal are (for now) considered departures.

    The Yankees can take advantage of the Phillies’ desire to offload Zack Wheeler’s salary. Here’s how a deal between New York and Philadelphia might look. If the Yankees want to break their World Series drought in 2021 they need to upgrade their starting rotation. Swinging a deal for Zack Wheeler could turn New York into the American League favorites. It’s a bit surprising that the Phillies are so motivated to offload the 30-year-old right-hander. Reports indicate the franchise wants to cut payroll this offseason in response to the global pandemic. Wheeler is the team’s second-highest earner behind Bryce Harper. Getting his salary off their books might also allow Philadelphia to ink J.T. Realmuto to a long-term contract via free agency. Only a handful of teams can realistically afford to add Wheeler and his salary. He’s only one year into the five-year, $118 million pact he signed with the Phillies. The Yankees don’t want to add a ton of payroll this offseason, but they could be motivated to stretch their financial limitations to add a pitcher of Wheeler’s quality.What would a...
    Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy Reveal If Theyre Open to Reconciling After Breakup Why the U.S. dollar is trading at a 2 1/2-year low Should Dennis Schroeder be a starter or in the second unit for Lakers? Los Angeles Lakers guard Dennis Schroeder made headlines on Monday afternoon when he described how he envisions his role on his new team. © Provided by HoopsHype Schroeder was acquired earlier this offseason in a trade that cost the Lakers veteran wing Danny Green and their first-round pick in the 2020 NBA draft. After starting just two games for the Oklahoma City Thunder last season, the guard was a finalist for the NBA’s Sixth Man of the Year Award. But the 27-year-old told reporters, on an introductory video press conference, that he wants to be in the first unit with Los Angeles: “I did this off the bench stuff already in two years with OKC. I think I try to move forward, and I think with [Anthony Davis] and LeBron, I can be helpful as a starter in the PG position.”...
    SANTA CLARA — Safety Jaquiski Tartt’s seventh and possibly final 49ers season is over, the byproduct of a turf-toe injury he sustained in last Thursday’s loss to the Green Bay Packers. Tartt is one of the 49ers’ pending free agents, and he’s been the secondary’s silent leader since arriving as a 2015 second-round draft pick. The 49ers placed Tartt on Injured Reserve on Wednesday. Coach Kyle Shanahan said on KNBR 680-AM that Tartt would not be returning for their final seven games. Marcell Harris, Tarvarius Moore and Johnathan Cyprien are the 49ers’ experienced options to replace Tartt and pair him with free safety Jimmie Ward in Sunday’s starting lineup at the New Orleans Saints.

    (CBS)- The Chicago Bears are undefeated through three weeks of the NFL season, but the bigger discussion around the team has centered on the play of quarterback Mitch Trubisky. After Trubisky was benched Sunday in favor of backup Nick Foles, head coach Matt Nagy named Foles the Week 4 starter on Monday. The decision seemed to be the inevitable one considering Foles’ play in leading the Bears to a comeback win over the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday. NFL on CBS lead reporter Tracy Wolfson agrees with the move, saying she believes this is the “perfect time” to do it. “It’s always been a question mark throughout Trubisky’s career and I think they have been very loyal to him in giving him shot after shot. Look where they are now. They’re 3-0 and were able to get three wins out of Trubisky which I don’t know they thought they would be able to do. This seems to be the right time,” said Wolfson in an interview with CBS Local’s Ryan Mayer. “The comeback that Nick Foles had. He’s a winner. He...
    Tyrod Taylor will continue to be the starting quarterback for the Los Angeles Chargers once he’s healthy. Taylor didn’t play Sunday after experiencing chest pains shortly before kickoff. That meant rookie QB Justin Herbert had to play.

    The New York Mets are reportedly looking for a starter, a catcher, and bullpen help By: Andres Chavez August 31, 2020 ShareTweet0 SharesThe New York Mets are still very much in playoff contention, even though the team is just 15-19 in the standings. There are still 26 games to be played, and while the team has been hit hard by injuries, especially on the pitching side, there is still hope of making a run at the playoffs. However, to reach that destination, the New York Mets need to make a move today. Starting pitching is an area of need, but not as much as getting relief help. The team’s best reliever, Seth Lugo, has been moved to the rotation, and that has left a huge hole in the back of the bullpen, which has been reflected in the results. According to MLB Network’s Jon Heyman, the Mets are working to improve several areas. New York, per Heyman, is “looking for a starter, a catcher, and pen help.” Boston has been doing...
    The Minnesota Twins are the latest team to show interest in trading for Los Angeles Angels starter Dylan Bundy ahead of the deadline.  We’ve only got a few days until the Major League Baseball trade deadline arrives, which means several teams out there are hoping to put the finishing touches on some deals that will help them go on a serious postseason run. That includes the Minnesota Twins, who are in the middle of a three-team race for the AL Central title with the Cleveland Indians and Chicago White Sox. As of this writing, all three teams are within 0.5 games of one another. Knowing how things are, Minnesota is hoping to improve its rotation before Aug. 31 comes and goes. Because of that, the team is reportedly in on the race to try and acquire Dylan Bundy from the Angels. Sources: #Twins showing trade interest in #Angels starter Dylan Bundy.

    If you’re new to plant-based eating, there are several food items you should take note of and make into a regular part of your diet. These staples will help you to create the bases for meals of all types, from breakfasts to desserts and everything in between. Check out my recommendations for a vegan starter shopping list below: 1.

    The A’s looked to be the lucky ones, spared a significant injury that could dent a team looking to make a postseason run again — this time around, with its full shelf of young talent ready to go. Monday, that precarious streak of luck came to an end with news that prized left-hander A.J. Puk re-strained his left shoulder — the same injury Puk incurred early March in Arizona — and was placed on the 10-day injured list. Shoulder flare ups are common among pitchers recovering from Tommy John — or so, that’s what many TJ survivors have told Puk. “It’s frustrating. It’s frustrating for him, too,” manager Bob Melvin said. “We thought this period of time off would benefit him. It did up until a point.” Puk has no timetable for return, and any update will come following his meeting with Dr. ElAttrache. But, the A’s are concerned. “The fact we have to put him on the (IL) right away, there’s a level of concern,” Melvin said. The A’s have a line of pitchers who can squeeze into the...
    Eduardo Rodríguez tested positive for coronavirus | Michael Reaves / . Boston Red Sox pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez tested positive for COVID-19, the team announced Tuesday. Rodríguez was the main candidate to be the team’s starter on Opening Day but now his availability for the start of the season is in doubt. The Venezuelan must test negative in two tests before being able to return to work with his colleagues. Red Sox announce both Bobby Dalbec and Eduardo Rodriguez have tested positive for COVID-19 – Sean McAdam (@Sean_McAdam) July 7, 2020 The 27-year-old pitcher comes from his best season as a professional in 2019, as he had a record of 19 wins and 6 losses, with a 3.81 ERA and 213 strikeouts in 203.1 innings of work. Now the responsibility of being the starter in the first game of the 2020 season could fall into the hands of veteran Nathan Eovaldi.
