NBA free agency rumors: Austin Rivers opts into contract with Clippers

Austin Rivers will not enter free agency this summer.
Youth Derek Fisher Swingman Blue Nike Jersey: NBA Los Angeles Lakers #2 Hardwood Classics
The 25-year-old guard is opting into the final year of his contract with the Clippers, according to a report from the Los Angeles Times. Rivers’ father, Doc, is the current Clippers head coach.

If you’re wondering who either of those guys is, that’s because the Spurs simply don’t miss very often, at least not on the big ones. Tyler had an 11-year career to Sanders’ four, and they both are small forwards. But this miss hardly defined the franchise

A lot of teams missed on Z-Bo, but the Raptors were the most egregious. They needed a power forward and took the one who they thought would be a better fit. Instead, Bradley was out of the NBA after five seasons and even isn’t the most famous Michael Bradley in American sports. Randolph’s career goes well beyond his two All-Star invites.

Manaea (8-6) won his third straight start, allowing two runs in six innings on five hits and a walk. Three relievers finished, with Blake Treinen pitching the ninth for his 20th save, including 17 in a row.

I still felt good in the sixth, but the way our bullpen is going, I was happy to let them finish it off, he said. They have been spectacular.

Michael Fulmer (3-7) gave up four runs and nine hits while becoming the first Tigers starter to pitch eight innings since May 20. He is 1/3 in his past six starts.

I’m tired of saying it, but I thought my stuff was good today, he said. I’m just not getting the results we need, and that’s more frustrating for me than anyone.

The Tigers took the lead in the first inning on Nicholas Castellanos’s two-run homer, extending his extra-base streak Wade Boggs Jersey to five games.

Marcus Semien and Chad Pinder started the second with singles, and Mark Canha made it 2-1 with a bloop single. Lowrie followed with his eighth hit of the series, a tying single, Brett Favre Youth Jersey and Khris Davis gave the A’s a 3-2 lead with the fifth single in six batters.

Hurricanes sign goaltender Petr Mrazek

The Carolina Hurricanes and goalie Petr Mrazek have agreed to a one-year deal worth $1.5 million.
Youth Nike Miami Dolphins #77 Adam Joseph Duhe Limited Olive 2017 Salute to Service NFL Jersey
The move was announced Sunday after longtime goalie Cam Ward agreed to a one-year, $3 million deal with the Chicago Blackhawks.

General manager Don Waddell says he expects healthy competition for the starting position, and the Hurricanes were looking for help this offseason.

If you do something for so long, it just seems like second nature. It’s just part of my life. I want to be the best to carry a Wendel Clark Womens Jersey football, and that’s what it’s going to take: getting those heavy lifts in when your legs are all beat up and tired out from getting 30 carries.

I don’t really believe in specialization in sports, especially at a young age. I believe it’s important that young athletes test the waters and play a bunch of different sports so they can develop a bunch of different skills. When I talk to younger athletes, I always explain to them how important it was for me to be well-rounded.

Buehler originally was set to make a rehab start for Triple-A Oklahoma City on Thursday after missing 19 days with a rib microfracture.

He flew to Oklahoma, but the plan was changed and he was immediately called back to Los Angeles. He landed Thursday morning, was activated off the DL and came on in relief of Clayton Kershaw.

Trending Francisco Cervelli Jersey up: Machado has kept his focus as the team around him disintegrates and he’s putting up his best season at the plate with a.310/.377/.567 line, with the lowest strikeout rate and best walk rate of his career.

His defensive metrics at shortstop have been terrible, with minus-15 defensive runs saved, worst in the majors. This could be a Miguel Cabrera-like situation, when the Tigers were willing to live with the glove at third base, but some teams might view Machado only as a third baseman.

Kellen Winslow’s bail denied again, with strange justification

Former NFL tight end Kellen Winslow apparently won’t be walking out of jail anytime soon.
Delano Hill Women's Nike Black 2016 Salute to Service Limited NFL Jersey - Seattle Seahawks #42 Jerseys
Via in San Diego, the Winslow was denied bail at another hearing Thursday. He was arrested on burglary charges, but after bailing out on those, was arrested again on a warrant charging him with kidnapping and rape of older women. He has pleaded not guilty, and was deemed a danger to the public at his first bail hearing.

He faces multiple life terms if convicted.

But yesterday’s hearing took a strange twist, when the judge cited Thomas Vanek Womens Jersey the Mission: Impossible movies as a reason not to.

TMZ had cameras in the courtroom, and described the scene after Winslow’s lawyers asked for house arrest, since he had a security system which could ostensibly monitor his movements.

The Home Depot Backyard will feature limited permanent structures allowing the space to be flexible and multipurpose. Amenities will include:

The Home Depot Pavilion: A unique sponsorship activation zone in the southwest corner of the development. This zone will be comprised of a three-pier, dual-level, shaded deck pavilion to both engage the tailgating audience in creative ways on event-day and offer additional amenities like picnic areas for the public on non-game days.

To be honest, just with what the coaches have said and just the way it’s looking, I’m pretty sure Sam is going to start, Cardinals rookie receiver Christian Kirk told NFL Network. But you never know. Training camp provides a lot of opportunities for George Blanda Jersey Josh to go out there and show what he can do as well. I think either way, if Josh were to start Week 1, I think they both put us good position to go out there and win some football games.

By all accounts, Rosen had a good offseason. Bradford’s injury history makes it likely Rosen will see the field at some point this season, one way or the other.

Both Sam and Josh have looked really good, said Kirk, the Cardinals’ second-round pick from Texas A&M. Just being able to learn from a veteran like Sam, seeing what he’s seeing and just kind of getting on the same page with him.

David Johnson Absent At Minicamp

When David Johnson Darryl Dawkins Jersey was at the voluntary organized team activities open to the media last week but sitting off to the side, coach Steve Wilks declined to get into any reasons why Johnson or any player might not be on the field.
Men's Fanatics Branded Brandon Carlo Breakaway White Away NHL Jersey: Boston Bruins #25
Tuesday, the reason became clear, with the running back absent from the start of the Cardinals’ mandatory minicamp amid reports he wants to get a contract extension.

Dave has been here, quarterback Sam Bradford said. He’s been here pretty much the entire offseason. He wasn’t here today, but I’m not worried about David at all. He’s a tremendous player. Whenever he gets back here I know he’ll be in shape and he’ll be ready to roll.

Some NFL players have unfathomable wealth, the type of fortune that will allow their lineage to live comfortably for generations.

A mandatory minicamp absence has never really meant a ton in terms of lost football time. And it’s been a long time since the Cardinals have even faced one — without doing a ton of research, it might go all the way back to rookies Calvin Pace and Bryant Johnson in 2003, which had to do with injury protections before rookie deals were signed. I can’t recall any vets. (One year, Anquan Boldin and Darnell Dockett were seeking new deals, but still showed up to minicamp. They just didn’t practice when they both happened to have hamstring issues.)

That doesn’t really mean anything now, with this current version of the front office and this player. It’s a tough time to be a running back in the NFL these days, with the way the position has been valued across the entire league. But it’s hard to believe that the Cardinals and Johnson won’t find a way to resolve this.

Where he really has grown in his years here is his fundamental techniques and what it takes to play the position, Garver added. (Speed) is Womens Brice Butler Jersey his quality, yes, but he’s also a really good receiver and runs really good routes.

The Astros’ Jeff Luhnow is one of baseball’s most fascinating executives.

His early tenure in Houston, the period during which the Astros’ championship squad was built, was not without its controversies. There was a perceived lowball offer on an extension for George Springer. There was the Brady Aiken mess, which cost Houston two high picks from the 2014 draft but also gave the club the slot used to nab Alex Bregman the following June.
Adidas Marc-Edouard Vlasic Authentic Women's Jersey - NHL San Jose Sharks #44 Green Salute to Service
Even last season, as Houston was gearing up for its first World Series title, Luhnow drew some ire for his reorganization of the Astros’ scouting department, which once again spurred some to suggest he’s too far on the analytics side of the scouting-statistics spectrum. One thing you can say about Luhnow: He has his own way of doing things, but who can deny the results?

I had a good conversation with Luhnow about his player-development philosophies in his office at the Astros’ spring-training facility in West Palm Beach, Florida, before the season, and news of his Authentic Matt Calvert Jersey extension serves as a good opportunity to share some of that.

One thing that really jumps out to me about you guys is, here you have a team that won over 100 games, won the World Series, and it still feels like there is plenty of room for further growth. Assuming you agree with that, how much did that inform how you approached building the team for this season?

More on the NFL 2018 NFL Over-Under Win Totals: Vikings look like the NFC North’s most complete team Even with seven different quarterbacks in Minnesota, Green was able to find success year after year. He joins a Ring of Honor that includes the likes of Grant, Fran Tarkenton, Cris Carter, Randy Moss, Randall McDaniel and John Randle. Carter, McDaniel and Randle were all coached for a good portion of their careers by Green, while Moss started out with him on that ’98 team. After coaching the Vikings, Green went to coach at Arizona for three seasons (2004-2006), where he had his famous rant regarding the Chicago Bears.

Later, Frazier added another other-way hit to right in going 2 for 4 to hike his seven-game average to.368.

If you watched the way they were shifting me, they had me up the middle a lot, so I was trying Rod Smith Jersey to stick to right field and every pitch they threw me I felt like it was on the outer half, Frazier said. So I was trying to go where the ball was thrown and it was a good day.

Yankees manager Aaron Boone noticed, and he agrees.

Robbie Ray and other disappointing players to trade for now

Most fantasy baseball teams were drafted three or more months ago, and even the most patient of managers is probably getting tired of some draft-day disappointments who are holding back fantasy rosters as summer begins.

Eric Karabell recaps action from Thursday, including a look at a dozen players who weren’t on the fantasy radar in March who are now lineup mainstays.

If your team is struggling or you just want to make a bold move, trading for someone’s struggling stars can be a way to get an edge if you predict a bounce-back. Give us a player who has failed to live up to preseason expectations and you’re looking to trade for now before they turn things around.

Eric Karabell: Time has run out on being able to secure the likes of hitters Paul Goldschmidt, Matt Carpenter, Elvis Andrus and Wil Myers for good value, but by this point of the season I am generally looking for pitching aid.

Pujols went 2-for-3 with an RBI and a run scored in Friday’s win. He produced an RBI double in the first inning to give him 630 doubles for his career, moving him within two of David Ortiz for 10th on the all-time major-league list. He is four home runs shy of 630 for career, which would tie Ken Griffey Jr. for sixth on the career list.

Marcus Stroman (0-5, 7.71 ERA) is scheduled to take the mound for the Blue Jays (34-41) on Saturday night in his first start since May 8.

In his last outing, Stroman gave up five runs and nine hits over five innings in a 5-0 loss to the Mariners in Toronto. His counterpart, Seattle left-hander James Paxton, became the first Canadian to throw a no-hitter in the game.

Stroman went on the disabled list a day later with fatigue in his throwing shoulder.

It just got to the point where it was so mentally and physically frustrating, Stroman told at the time. I just need to take a step back for a second, put it all together and come back and be myself out there.

Pujols and Angels center fielder Mike Trout are each 5-for-10 in their careers against Stroman.

Mets injury updates: Ace Noah Syndergaard will not start Sunday, closer Jeurys Familia placed on DL

The Mets Calvin Johnson Jersey injury struggles continue.
Women's Game Jake Butt Navy Blue Jersey: Alternate #80 NFL Denver Broncos Nike
New York ace Noah Syndergaard was expected to be activated from the disabled list Sunday. But he will not start after experiencing swelling and discomfort while playing catch, according to a report by The Mets also placed closer Jeurys Familia on the disabled list Friday.

Syndergaard was originally placed on the DL May 29 with a strained ligament in the index finger of his pitching hand. He has tallied a 4-1 record with a 3.06 ERA in 2018.

It’s been an odd year, dating back to his ankle injury, for Beckham and the Giants. He missed the final 11 games of the season, and the team went 3-13, leading to the ouster of coach Ben McAdoo and general manager Jerry Reese.

In March, there was an NFL Network report that Beckham will not set foot on a field without a new contract extension agreed to with the Giants or any team. That came a day after owner John Mara said no player is untouchable, and was on the heels of the wide receiver being seen in an Instagram video in bed with a woman with what appeared to be drugs in the room. That was followed by trade rumors that were more fiction than fact, with Mara saying: Do I want him to be traded? Absolutely not. I want him to be a Giant.

Last year Taylor quarterbacked the Bills in their first playoff game since 1999. This year he’s hoping to quarterback the Browns to their first playoff game since 2002. If he faces his old team, it would represent the first time the Bills and Browns made the playoffs in the same year since 1989. That year, Bernie Kosar out-dueled Jim Kelly as the Browns beat the Bills 34-30.

I’m not worried about it and neither is he, Shurmur said.

The fact he’s not running team drills in June won’t be much of an issue if they get a contract resolution before training camp and he’s ready for the season. Until then, they’ll continue the dance, each side being very deliberate not to step on the other side’s toes.

And he Adam Shaheen Youth Jersey might have been the only one who believed it would.

The Giants don’t believe they have any reason to be worried about Odell Beckham Jr.’s surgically repaired left ankle. The potential of their star receiver holding out for a new contact doesn’t seem to concern the team, either.

Indians ace Corey Kluber continues streak of dominance

Indians ace Corey Kluber continued his unrivaled stretch of form Sunday in a 9-2 win over the Tigers.
Authentic Reebok Men's Ales Hemsky Green Home Jersey - NHL #83 Dallas Stars
Kluber, a two-time American League Cy Young Award winner, improved to 10-2 with a 1.99 ERA this season after allowing just two runs with eight strikeouts in eight innings.

The Raiders parted ways with Michael Crabtree and Cordarrelle Patterson; they brought in Jordy Nelson, Martavis Bryant and Ryan Switzer. Amari Cooper is coming off a down season, but he will be the clear-cut No. 1 receiver for the first time in his career and will be treated as such by the new coaching staff.

Trickling down from Cooper and his additional targets, how the Raiders use Nelson and Bryant will be interesting to watch. Nelson is 33 and doesn’t have the home-run speed he once had, but he can still grab jump balls in scoring position. Bryant has both the size to be a red-zone monster and Womens Vladimir Tarasenko Jersey the speed to be a downfield playmaker, but he needs to keep his head on straight in order to get opportunities to show off his skills.

Alex actually broke the news to his brother at Minute Maid Park.

J.C. played his last two years at Alvin Community College outside of Houston and is committed to play at Lamar in the coming years.

I’m really excited, J.C. told I worked hard all my life waiting for this moment T.J. Jones Authentic Jersey and for me getting drafted by the Astros means a lot. It’s the same team where my brother plays. I’m really happy.

They also drafted the son of Mike Cameron, Daz Cameron in the same draft.

The Astros also drafted Koby, Kacy and Kody Clemens out of high school. Only Koby would play in the organization as both Kacy and Kody went on to play at the University of Texas.

Jonathan Stewart’s experience in Odell Beckham’s shoes

By the time he played his final game as the Panthers’ all-time leading rusher, Jonathan Stewart’s contract underwent almost as many amendments as the Bill of Rights.
Nike Men's Stephen Curry Elite Black Home Jersey - Carolina Panthers NFL #30
Stewart, who signed a five-year deal worth $36.5 million in 2012, restructured his contract with then-general manager Dave Gettleman in 2013,  2014 and 2017, according to various reports.

In some cases, Stewart received more guaranteed money in exchange for helping the team free up immediate salary cap space. In others, he took a pay cut to stay in his longtime home.

My experience is it’s all business at the end of the day, Stewart told NJ Advance Media. I understand that (much) wherever you go, whether you work at McDonald’s or are the CEO of McDonald’s. Or the Giants.

Flacco is the guy who once bet on himself when contract talks hit a wall and then won Super Bowl MVP honors en route to a major payday. Think he’s a bit stoked by all of this?

I don’t know if it makes a difference, Harbaugh said, while Flacco, unavailable for comment, hustled into the closed locker room. I think he’d be motivated, anyway. What the heck. All of our antennas are up all the time.

The way the game is played today, a lot of it is dictated from the front office, you know? Piniella said. I managed a year and a half removed from playing. I had no experience whatsoever, and I had a 23-year career doing it. I’m not surprised. Aaron comes from a baseball family. His dad, his brother. I’m not surprised he’s Ronnie Stanley Jersey doing a good job.

While he’s still waiting Authentic Seth Joyner Jersey for the results to show, Bird does feel a difference in his swing quality compared to the start of his season.

I wasn’t as consistent early with getting my swing off, getting my best swing, Bird said. I feel like the last couple days I’ve been getting my best swing off most of the time. That’s pretty much it for me.

Yankees manager Aaron Boone said he wasn’t concerned with Bird’s progress. Boone has seen Bird engaged in more at-bats in recent games, and that process should lead to production.

It’s just a matter of him really getting locked in to where some of those fly balls he’s hitting off the barrel start really going in for extra-base hits, Boone said. Which, since he’s come back, he’s done a pretty good job of impacting some balls with some extra-base hits.
