Tulowitzki joins Donaldson on DL for Blue Jays

For much of the game the Jays offence was inert and it looked like a weird call that had Stroman fuming and manager John Gibbons tossed from the game was going to take them down yet again. But the deeper the game went, the fewer the options became. Stats: Trout is hitting.343 (24 for 70) with five home runs, 14 RBIs, 11 runs scored and three stolen bases on three attempts in 19 games.

Paul Finebaum: Warren Sapp is a "Complete Loser"

Where's the game he took over? It may take way too much to move all the way to No. 2, but it doesn't sound like the San Francisco 49ers are in love with any of this year's quarterbacks enough to take one there. "You have to be able to turn the tide of a game at any given time". "To pass on the best player, not only the best player in the draft but the best player who is also at a premier position right behind quarterback and edge rusher, to push a quarterback all the way up the board would ...

Deal for Malcolm Butler less likely as Saints consider depth of draft

The New Orleans Saints brought Butler in for a visit earlier this offseason and have been effusive in their praise of the 27-year-old, but are "leaning toward" holding on to their top three selections in this year's draft - Nos. He has won two Super Bowls, including Super Bowl XLIX when he had the game-winning interception, a shocking play on the goal line at a time when he was an unknown entity in the sport world.

Bayern Munich fans in ugly clashes with the baton-wielding Spanish police

Bayern Munich fans in ugly clashes with the baton-wielding Spanish police

Former Real Madrid and Barcelona striker Alfonso has described Sunday's Clasico as Lionel Messi versus Cristiano Ronaldo. "All other players have recovered well after the match against Real". He always knows when there's an important occasion and he's going to be there. What he did is outside any sort of category. In the first half we could have scored one or two goals; it was the same in the second half, but we conceded. Read More

Cards' Wainwright has HR, 4 RBIs in first win of season

The Cardinals led off the first three innings with doubles off Anderson. Shaw's fifth home run of the season traveled 458 feet and smacked off the facing of the third deck in right. Infielder Jhonny Peralta was put on the 10-day disabled list by the St. Louis Cardinals because of an upper respiratory issue. The Milwaukee Bucks snapped a three game losing streak, riding a balanced scoring attack to a 92-74 win over the Denver Nuggets Monday night at the BMO Harris Bradley Center. Read More

National Basketball Association roundup: Cavaliers hold on to beat Pacers

For the first time in franchise history the Cavs had 3 players score 25 or more points in a playoff game Monday night. Paul George paced IN with 32 points, eight rebounds and seven assists IN the defeat. It's time for the Cavs to make an adjustment there, too. There's no reason not to expect more double-teams and that's where George would like to see the big men flash and make themselves open. Read More

Panthers reach 5-year deal with defensive star Kawann Short

Panthers reach 5-year deal with defensive star Kawann Short

The Panthers placed the franchise tag on Short in February. The franchise's decision to rescind the tag on Norman past year, letting him walk to the Redskins on a new free agency deal, was a weird thing. Off the field, KK is a top-notch young man and great representative of our team. Between a happy Kawann Short, Star Lotulelei on his 5th year option, and Vernon Butler on his second year in the league, the Panthers rotation looks to be stacked this year and for the future.

Maurice Harkless Made $500000 By Not Attempting A Three-Pointer

Harkless, 23, finished the season at a career-best 35.1 percent. It was his final three-point attempt of the night; he finished three-for-five from outside the arc. And before tip-off against the New Orleans Pelicans, Harkless' percentage sat at exactly 35.1. As Kristian Winfield of SB Nation explained, he will miss out on a $500,000 bonus if his three-point shooting percentage for the 2016-17 campaign falls under 35 percent following the game. Read More

Harden's triple-double helps Rockets over Wolves 123-118

Towns is now averaging 25.1 points, as he hit the milestone with a game to spare, thanks to a late-season push worthy of MVP consideration if it were to happen over a full year. Towns 3-point shooting could be the most improved aspect of his repertoire, draining more than 100 on the season at a 37 percent clip. David Nwaba added 14 points for Los Angeles. Read More

Michigan State's Bridges chooses to stay in school

Michigan State's Bridges chooses to stay in school

If Bridges does jump to the National Basketball Association, it would not be surprising to see Bowen commit to Michigan State and fill that role at the 3. Michigan State snuck into the NCAA tournament as a No. 9 seed and defeated Miami in the first round, but ended the year just 20-15 overall. His 56 made 3-pointers and 43 blocked shots also ranked among the league leaders. Read More

Angels learn Garrett Richards' surgically repaired elbow is sound after MRI exam

Richards allowed no runs on three hits over 4 2/3 innings against Oakland. He left with runners on first and third with a 0-1 count on Matt Joyce. The AL West rivals had split the first two games of the season. Richards' start against the A's was his first one since last May after missing most of last season with a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament, which Guardado said he chose to have "a stem-cell injection, rather than Tommy John surgery, to attempt to heal his damaged right elbow".
