The right-hander has been sidelined since being hit by a line drive to his right elbow in a game against the Minnesota Twins on June 16.

I don’t throw 60 pitches in any bullpen, Boston Red Sox pitcher David Price said. A former Cy Young winner himself, he has known Scherzer since their college days, when the two played together on Team USA. Even back then, Price could tell Scherzer was unique. He’s definitely a different breed, always has been, Price says. Just seeing the way he goes about things. He’s a machine.

It was reported earlier this week that the Spurs are ready to move on from Leonard. San Antonio has been in talks with the Lakers and Celtics, according to ESPN.

What will these rookies do for an encore?

The 2017-18 rookie class was one that will go down as one of the best we have seen. Tatum, Simmons, Donovan Mitchell, Kyle Kuzma, Lauri Markkanen and more all performed beyond what was expected in their rookie seasons.

Before his trade, George had told the Pacers that he planned to sign with the Lakers in Womens Eddie Vanderdoes Jersey free agency this summer. Nevertheless, Oklahoma City GM Sam Presti, coach Billy Donovan and Westbrook have made a strong case on a future with the Thunder and moved the franchise into contention with the Lakers.

George, a native of Southern California, and LeBron James are the focus of the Lakers’ free-agent recruiting efforts. The Lakers also are working to acquire San Antonio Spurs star Kawhi Leonard in a trade.

With Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid leading the way, the 76ers won 52 games this season and entered the 2018 NBA playoffs with the No. 3 seed in the Eastern Conference. Simmons and Embiid are franchise-level players under the age of 25, giving James an opportunity to play with two of the league’s rising stars while he is still performing at an MVP level.

The fit might not be as smooth as other situations — the Authentic Geno Atkins Jersey Sixers would need more volume shooters from the perimeter, and LeBron and Simmons are point forwards who get their points and assists in similar fashion — but it would give James a chance to compete now and in the future when Embiid and Simmons enter their primes.

Texans’ DeAndre Hopkins Jersey invites young athletes to work out at park, dozens show up

DeAndre Hopkins, one of the best wide receivers in the NFL, posted a public invite on Twitter for young athletes in the Houston area to work out with him at a local park early Tuesday — and it worked.
Youth Shaquille O'Neal Swingman Green Nike Jersey: NBA Boston Celtics #36 Salute to Service
The Texans star, who was a first team All-Pro selection in 2017, was met by more than 50 area athletes at Houston’s Hermann Park where Womens Rajon Rondo Jersey everyone went through the same stretches and sprints.

Tye Smith, a free-agent addition from 2017, is the Titans’ the best choice for the No. 4 job. In limited duty, he has proved he has good takeaway potential.

Fitzpatrick has always been overexposed as the NFL’s top journeyman south of Josh McCown when teams needs him to be a regular starter, but he’s good at coming off the bench for short stretches and leaning on the best talent around him. So there’s a fair chance Fitzpatrick will play well in one or two of those games, only for that effort to be rendered moot.

You see stuff that’s a lot of negative stuff, cornerback Xavien Howard said Wednesday at the Junior Dolphins Summer Camp, via Chris Perkins of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. I try to keep a lot of positive around me.

Added cornerback Tony Lippett: I don’t pay attention to it. All we can control is what we can control.

I stay away from it, said tackle Eric Smith. That way you never get boosted up or get your feelings hurt.

Another approach would be to embrace it as motivation. This is a team that went to the playoffs in 2016, and that struggled last year through every kind of adversity imaginable, from hurricane to injury and everything in between. With the expectations now as low as they can be, the Dolphins can provide Brian Rafalski Jersey even more of a surprise than they did in 2016 by finagling a playoff berth in 2018.

Former Cardinals QB Ryan Lindley Jersey takes graduate assistant job with San Diego State

Former Arizona Cardinals quarterback Ryan Lindley is returning to his alma mater to serve on the team’s coaching staff.
Women's Nike Green Bay Packers #22 Aaron Ripkowski White Vapor Untouchable Limited Player NFL Jersey
San Diego State announced Thursday that Lindley was joining Rocky Long’s coaching staff as a graduate assistant secondary coach.

Lindley was a sixth-round pick of the Cardinals in 2012 and appeared in nine games with six starts over three seasons, including the team’s 27-16 Divisional Round playoff loss to the Carolina Panthers in 2014. He also spent time with the San Diego Chargers, New England Patriots and appeared in one game for the Indianapolis Colts in 2015.

Not even a degree in economics and a master’s in business could prepare him for the mind-boggling details Womens Patrik Nemeth Jersey that awaited him at camp. He used to learn 30 to 40 different ‘play’ calls ahead of each rugby match for the Worcester Warriors.

Lawson said that he’s approaching every day like my job is on the line and that urgency appears to be the appropriate response to the way the team feels about him.

While it would be tempting to offer Thomas a fully guaranteed contract like Kirk Cousins got from the Vikings this offseason, this extension would push the Texas native near the top of the safety market while protecting the Chargers with the last $10 million in guaranteed money tied to injuries.

The Chargers have about $9 million in salary-cap space in 2018, according to the ESPN Roster Management System, so they would have to get creative in order to bring Thomas into the fold. The Bolts could restructure the contracts of quarterback Philip Rivers (scheduled to make $15 million in 2018) or receiver Travis Benjamin (scheduled to make $5.75 million in 2018) to create some cap space.

Max Scherzer Jersey unleashes his own kind of dominance

Whatever tweaks the Nationals ace made to his delivery worked as he shut down the Orioles with one of his best outings of the season.
Men's Nike Jacksonville Jaguars #44 Myles Jack Game White NFL Jersey
The adjustment, wherein Scherzer decided to lower his hands and move them away from his face ever-so-slightly, wasn’t a major one. In fact, it was barely noticeable to anyone not named Max Scherzer. Nevertheless, it was a tweak the kind of thing a pitcher resorts to when things aren’t going well.

From the inside looking out, it was high time to play tweak-a-boo.

What followed was a pair of vintage Scherzer outings: a 12-strikeout gem against the Orioles in which he allowed just two hits over eight shutout innings and an overpowering start against the Tampa Bay Rays in which he had 13 punchouts and no walks, threw 81 of 99 pitches for strikes and recorded an immaculate inning (nine pitches, nine strikes, three whiffs), becoming just the fifth hurler in MLB history to accomplish the feat twice.

It’s crazy, but at the same time you know it’s in there, LeBlanc Tuukka Rask Jersey said. You just keep working, keep grinding and as long as you’re staying healthy…

It’s also crazy that the Yankees are looking to add starting pitching before the July Womens Wesley Woodyard Jersey 31 trade deadline and they let a good one get away for nothing just three months ago.

LeBlanc laughed when he was asked if he thinks it’s ironic that his impressive stats – he’s 3-0 with a 2.63 ERA in 14 games, the last nine as a starter – aren’t terribly different from big-name starters that the Yankees are rumored to be after… the likes of Mets ace Jacob deGrom.

The spring training quest for LeBlanc, who signed a minor-league contract with the Yankees last January, was to win an Opening Day roster spot as a long reliever. But even though he’s mostly been a big leaguer for the last decade and he’d had some good seasons, he understood he was facing long odds.

First off, the Yankees bullpen is as loaded and deep as any in baseball. And LeBlanc, a poster boy for soft-tossing lefties, historically has been hit around in spring trainings when his control needs weeks to get sharp and his fastball velocity needs time to build up to its 87-mph peak.

Steven Matz injury update: Mets pitcher leaves start against Braves with left hand injury

Mets pitcher Steven Matz left his start against the Braves after three innings with discomfort in the middle finger of his pitching hand, the team announced Tuesday.

New York’s athletic trainer and manager Mickey Callaway went to the mound while Matz was throwing his warm-up pitches before the fourth inning. The trainer examined Matz’ left hand and he was then removed from the game.

Matz allowed no runs and one hit in his three innings of work. He has registered a 2-3 record and a 3.55 ERA so far this season.

Contract negotiations and pro baseball can wait.

He’s got messages to deliver in the clubhouse and stereotypes to dispel on the field.

When I go out there and take the field, I feel like I’m the biggest person out there, Madrigal said. I feel like when I look at the pitcher, I’m bigger than him, no matter his size. I’ve always tried to prepare that way. I try to practice as hard as I can, try to train as hard as I can, so when I get on the field, I’m the most confident guy out there.

If it all works as Madrigal plans, he and the Beavers will stand tall in Omaha into next week.

Hosmer’s hit in the ninth was in stark contrast to his infield single in the third off starter Chris Stratton. The ball bounced near the plate then rolled slowly down the line as third baseman Pablo Sandoval stood and watched, hoping it would go foul. It didn’t.

I didn’t even know it had a chance of staying fair, honestly, so it was kind of a surprise for me, Hosmer said. I’ll take the free knocks. I need them, that’s for sure.

Manuel Margot had two hits and two RBI as the Padres snapped a five-game skid. Travis Jankowski and Cory Spangenberg added two hits apiece.

Richard (7-6) was dominant in his third start against the Giants this season. He retired 17 straight during one stretch, allowed only two runners past second base and struck out four. The four consecutive wins mark a career high for the left-hander.

We’ve struggled the last five days so it’s good to get back on the right track, Richard said. That’s always a good thing, and to do it against the Giants here, it’s a good win.

San Diego’s bullpen made Richard’s performance hold up, but it was dicey at times.

Green used three relievers to get out of the seventh. Kirby Yates allowed a leadoff single in the eighth before setting down the next three. Brad Hand retired all three batters he faced in the ninth.

Saints sign running back Terrance West Jersey

The Saints found their veteran running back.
Men's Nike Cincinnati Bengals #92 Pat Sims Black Team Color Vapor Untouchable Limited Player NFL Jersey
According to Herbie Teope of, the Saints are signing former Ravens running back Terrance West after today’s cattle call workout.

The Saints also took a look at Jamaal Charles and Tim Hightower, but chose West from the group.

The incident follows Kramer’s 2015 failed suicide attempt, an incident that Baird references in her petition, saying it proves the former NFL signal-caller is no stranger to handling guns. Her restraining order request was granted, meaning Kramer must stay 100 yards away from her at all times and must move out of the family’s home.

Baird filed for divorce two days after the alleged assault, TMZ Sports reported.

Johnson was a two-time first-team All-ACC Sebastian Aho Jersey selection and two-time winner of Jacobs Blocking Trophy to recognize the best offensive lineman in the ACC. He started the final 31 games of his college career at Florida State at left tackle.

Leave it to Oprah Winfrey to get Tom Brady to admit the end really may be near.

In an interview set to air Sunday night on Winfrey’s OWN network, the five-time Super Bowl champion and reigning NFL MVP said he now thinks about retirement more than he ever has.

I think about it more now than I used to, Brady said. I think I’m seeing that there’s definitely an end coming sooner rather than later.

That attitude represents an Corey Coleman Youth Jersey about-face for the 40-year-old superstar, who previously said he would like to play into his late 40s or as long as he is playing at a championship level.

Andy Green Jersey to Joe West: ‘I’m leaving so you can go and get another call wrong’

Joe West is not the most popular MLB umpire, Dick Butkus Womens Jersey and he was certainly not Padres manager Andy Green’s favorite person Friday in a matchup with the Braves.
Richard Dent Youth Elite Navy Blue Jersey: Nike NFL Chicago Bears Vapor Untouchable Alternate #95
Green was so upset with West after a call he didn’t agree with in the fourth inning he chucked his hat at the man prompting his ejection.

West was cordial after the toss by Green and actually handed the man his hat back.

San Francisco offensively has raised its big-play quotient around Garoppolo, but its defense will need to limit those kinds of pass plays and increase its takeaway potential after recording only 10 interceptions last season.

The 49ers are well equipped for complementary football. That should lead to better overall football in 2018.

Adrian Houser, a Brewers reliever, finished his warm ups and then yakked behind the mound.

There are some excellent examples of pitch velocity as the canary in the coal mine. In 2017, Matt Harvey’s average fastball velocity dropped like a stone during a start, and he was quickly diagnosed with a stress injury that kept him out for months.

James Shields averaged 92 mph on his Franco Harris Jersey fastball in his first two starts of 2017 but dropped to 90 mph in his third right before hitting the disabled list with a strained lat. Nathan Eovaldi consistently hit triple digits on the radar gun, but barely averaged 94 mph on his fastball in his last start prior to Tommy John surgery that sidelined him for all of 2017.

There are only a couple reasons a Jones holdout would make sense. He could be looking to strike while the iron is hot and sneak in a raise, or he might want better cash flow in his contract.

Jets signing J.J. Wilcox to replace Rontez Miles (knee)

Jets safety Rontez Miles is out three-to-four months after having surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his knee, according to NFL Network.

To replace him, the Jets are signing free agent safety J.J. Wilcox, a league source confirmed.

Miles was the Jets’ fourth safety, behind starters Jamal Adams and Marcus Maye. Terrence Brooks was the Jets’ No. 3 safety even before Miles’ injury. Miles was a strong special teams contributor for the Jets, who now need depth at safety, which is why they are signing Wilcox.

Wilcox was a third-round draft pick by the Cowboys in 2013. He started 29 games for them from 2014-15, but he has otherwise been a backup, which will be his role with the Jets. He was with the Steelers last season. He has six career interceptions.

What to make of all this? It’s pretty simple and goes to what Bennett said.

I know Jimmy G is gonna need a big play receiver this year at some point, Owens said. Let’s make it happen. #StayReady #VetMin.

Jimmy G has Pierre Garςon and Marquise Goodwin as the team’s starting receivers. Owens last played in 2010, but he hasn’t given up on his desire to return to action.

Whether Owens is on an NFL team or not, he’ll be on the cover of the Madden 19 Hall of Fame edition.

They need him to play well. He was great in college, but we have no idea who he is as an NFL player because of his shin injury. We’re going to learn a lot about both him and the Raiders secondary in 2018.

Quarterbacks separate themselves on third downs. On the money down, Carson Wentz had the second-highest completion percentage in the league in 2017, per the Washington Post. He was only behind Jimmy Garoppolo, who threw 71 fewer passes on third downs than Wentz.

Antonio Brown and Ben Roethlisberger Jersey skip out on the Steelers OTAs

Ben Roethlisberger and Antonio Brown have skipped out on a few days of OTAs now. The duo missed at least four workouts. The reason?
Limited Youth Ryan Griffin White Road Jersey: NFL Nike Houston Texans #84 Vapor Untouchable
How we haven’t heard from Bell since this series of events is incredible to me. Although, maybe he is in the lab working on his next diss track. Some may be wondering why it’s a big deal that Roethlisberger and Brown are missing voluntary OTAs.

So to recap: Bell failed to show up to OTAs, Brown critiqued him for it and then both Brown and Roethlisberger failed to show up to OTAs, because apparently a Roethliberger family vacation Evander Kane Womens Jersey is more important than an optional NFL practice and Brown can’t practice without his quarterback.

So where does that leave Mychal Kendricks, who officially signed with the Browns on Monday?

We’ll start him out in the middle, Browns coach Hue Jackson said Tuesday, via Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. As you know, [defensive coordinator] Gregg [Williams] plays a lot of different packages so he’ll be a little bit at every place. He’s very bright. He can learn it all. When he walks out there, he’ll start in the middle.

Kendricks, who was released by the Eagles on May 22, sat out practice Tuesday while recovering from minor ankle surgery in March. Collins also didn’t participate while recovering from surgery last season to repair a torn MCL.

Aaron Judge was out of the Yankees’ lineup the day after he set a Major League record by striking out eight times in a doubleheader. Judge was 0 for 9 with eight Ks and a walk on Monday when the Yanks split a pair in Detroit.I talked to (Judge) about this probably before we went on this roadtrip, just with the stretch of games and a doubleheader mixed in there,manager Aaron Boone said. The fact that we rode him through a doubleheader, I just felt like getting in (to Toronto after midnight Tuesday), on the turf… he’s been a guy that obviously I’ve leaned on a lot. I just felt like it was a good Authentic Colton Schmidt Jersey time.
