Andrew Heaney is eager to bounce back from a rough season. The Los Angeles Dodgers consider he can too, with some adjustments.

Los Angeles Lakers win second straight in OT, saying poor showing in Portland provided a push

Following a second straight overtime victory, this one coming 120-117 versus a strong Miami Heat team on Wednesday, Anthony Davis stated a loss to the Portland Trail Blazers last weekend might have been a turning point in the Los Angeles Lakers’ young season. “After that Portland loss, we took that personally,” Davis said of Saturday’s 115-90 defeat, a game in which L.A. trailed by as many as 34 points. “We’re not that type of team. No energy. No effort. A little bit of selfishness. And we just tried to change that.” Playing without LeBron James for the fourth consecutive game because of an abdomen strain and losing two more […]

Nick Castellanos exercises opt-out clause in deal with Cincinnati Reds to become free agent

Cincinnati Reds star outfielder Nick Castellanos has exercised the opt-out clause in his contract and will become a free agent this offseason, the team revealed. Castellanos informed the Reds of his decision Thursday, opting out of the final two years and $34 million on his deal. Castellanos had two opt-out clauses in his four-year, $64 million deal, but he did not exercise the first one after the pandemic-shortened 2020 season.
