RHP Lucas Giolito, Red Sox reach 2-year

Right-hander Lucas Giolito and the Boston Red Sox are in agreement on a two-year, $38.5 million contract, sources told ESPN, locking up the innings-eating veteran as the starting pitching market starts to move. The deal includes an opt-out after the first season and includes innings-based performance bonuses that can bring the total value to $40.5 million. Giolito’s deal with Boston gives him an $18 million salary in 2024 and a $1 million buyout if he opts out. If not, his salary for 2025 is $19 million. There is a conditional option for 2026 — a $14 million club option if he throws under 140 […]

Detroit Pistons set NBA record with 27th straight loss

It’s history not many fans inside Little Caesars Arena were looking forward to experiencing Tuesday night, but the Detroit Pistons couldn’t avoid NBA infamy, dropping their 27th consecutive game with a 118-112 loss to the Brooklyn Nets. It’s the most consecutive losses in a single season in league history. The 76ers have the overall record, losing 28 straight, but that spanned the 2014-15 and 2015-16 seasons. Detroit hasn’t won a match since its home opener Oct. 28, versus Chicago, and now is 2-28 on the season. Entering Tuesday’s game, Pistons coach Monty Williams couldn’t avoid the topic of the all-time losing mark — […]

Stalled out: Pistons’ 26th straight loss ties NBA record

Detroit Pistons players sat in stunned silence in one corner of the locker room, stared blankly ahead in another. The worst stretch of basketball in their lives now ranks as one of the worst in NBA history. Detroit matched the NBA record for the longest losing streak in a single season, falling 126-115 to the Brooklyn Nets on Saturday night for its 26th consecutive loss. “None of us went through this, ever,” center Isaiah Stewart said. “This is the hardest thing probably all of us went through, especially being in the pros.” The Pistons tied the 2010-11 Cleveland Cavaliers and 2013-14 Philadelphia 76ers and dropped to 2-27 in their first season […]

LeBron James scores 40 as Lakers end skid with ‘big win’

With the Lakers’ once 26-point lead cut to 10 in the waning minutes Saturday, LeBron James scored 11 consecutive points for Los Angeles. The spurt boosted his total to a season-best 40 points and assured the Lakers one of their best wins of the season, 129-120 versus the Oklahoma City Thunder. Coming into the night on a four-game losing streak and tweaking the starting lineup before tipoff — looking like a shell of the team that went 7-0 en route to the in-season tournament championship in the past couple of weeks — the Lakers made good on the “must win” directive Anthony Davis labeled the game earlier in […]

Pistons suffer 25th straight loss, hear chants of ‘sell the team’

Kelly Olynyk scored 25 points and the short-handed Utah Jazz defeated Detroit 119-111 on Thursday night for the Pistons’ 25th consecutive loss, one short of the NBA single-season record. The 2010-11 Cleveland Cavaliers and 2013-14 Philadelphia 76ers share the record at 26. The 76ers hold the overall mark at 28, a skid that started in the 2014-15 season and carried over into 2015-16. “I want to be careful with my words, because this one hurts more than most of them,” first-year coach Monty Williams said. “A team that played last night got [50] points off turnovers and rebounds. It is unbelievably hard to understand how we can […]

Nets’ Simmons showing improvement, to be reevaluated in two weeks

 Ben Simmons won’t return to the Brooklyn Nets until at least January because of a pinched nerve in his lower back. The Nets stated Wednesday that Simmons, who sustained his latest back injury Nov. 6, has shown consistent strength improvement in his back over the past two weeks. However, they added that he is still doing only individual court work and that his status would be updated again in approximately two weeks. “We’re doing this two-week thing just to give you some sort of semblance of being able to communicate with you,” head coach Jacque Vaughn said. “But he’s just continued to improve […]

Andrew McCutchen, Pirates reach one-year

Andrew McCutchen, who needs just one home run to reach 300 for his career, will return to the Pittsburgh Pirates on a one-year, $5 million deal, a source confirmed to ESPN on Tuesday. McCutchen, 37, will be entering his 16th season after entering the majors with Pittsburgh in 2009. He made it clear last season that he wanted to conclude his career with the Pirates, and general manager Ben Cherington stated he was confident that it would happen. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette first reported McCutchen’s deal with the Pirates. The five-time All-Star and 2013 NL MVP hit .256 with 12 homers, 43 RBIs, 55 […]

Jai Opetaia vacates IBF cruiserweight title, will fight Ellis Zorro next

Jai Opetaia announced on social media that he has vacated his IBF cruiserweight title after the organization ruled he must next face mandatory challenger Mairis Briedis in a rematch. Instead, Opetaia (23-0, 18 KOs) will proceed with a fight vs. Ellis Zorro on Saturday’s stacked card in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, headlined by Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder in separate fights. “I fought through absolute agony to win that belt and it saddens me to relinquish it,” Australia’s Opetaia said. “But the fact is, Briedis isn’t ready to fight on Dec. 23 and I need to stay active. I simply can’t turn down […]

Rangers’ Max Scherzer out until midseason after back surgery

Texas Rangers right-hander Max Scherzer will be sidelined until midseason after undergoing surgery for a herniated disk Thursday, according to the team. General manager Chris Young stated Friday that Scherzer, who was removed from the roster during the World Series because of back discomfort, underwent surgery after injections and other less-invasive treatments didn’t relieve the pain. Young stated the team is hopeful the three-time Cy Young Award winner will be fully healed and recovered by June or July. Scherzer stated in a statement released by the team Friday that the back pain got worse after he returned to his offseason home in Florida […]

Rays agree to trade Tyler Glasnow to Dodgers

The Los Angeles Dodgers and Tampa Bay Rays are in agreement on a trade to send frontline starter Tyler Glasnow to the Dodgers, sources familiar with the deal told ESPN on Thursday. The deal is contingent on Glasnow signing a contract extension with Los Angeles, which the parties are hopeful will happen by Friday, according to sources. The window for the extension opened Thursday morning, sources said, and if completed, the Dodgers will get Glasnow and outfielder Manuel Margot and send right-handed starter Ryan Pepiot and outfield prospect Jonny Deluca to the Rays. One of the prized starting pitchers on the trade market, Glasnow is among the game’s most dominant — and […]
