The Cincinnati Bengals plan to use the franchise tag on wide receiver A.J. Green, per ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler.

Rangers´ Corey Kluber pitches for fist time since arm broken

Corey Kluber faced major league hitters for the first time in 10 months — in a new uniform, no less — and said he didn’t feel any different. “Maybe a little bit beforehand,” the Texas Rangers right-hander said Sunday after throwing three innings versus the Los Angeles Dodgers. “But once you get out there and start stretching, playing catch, getting loose in the bullpen, all that stuff kinda goes away. “It just turns into another start, whether it’s the regular season or spring training. That’s kind of how everything usually goes for me.” It was Kluber’s first time facing a […]

Luis Severino has Tommy John surgery, out for 2020 season

New York Yankees right-hander Luis Severino underwent Tommy John surgery on Thursday, the Yankees revealed. His 2020 season is over before it even started. The Yankees added that Severino had an existing bone chip removed from his elbow during the procedure. GM Brian Cashman announced earlier this spring that Severino, who was limited to three regular-season appearances in 2019, had dealt with forearm soreness dating back to October, when he made a pair of postseason starts for the Yankees. The team shut down Severino last week after he went through his normal throwing program to start spring training. “[Severino] has acknowledged and agreed […]

LeBron James to miss Lakers´ game Thursday with sore groin

This season’s tilts with the Golden State Warriors have lacked their normal star power, owing to long-term injuries to All-Star guards Klay Thompson and Steph Curry. When the Lakers tip-off versus the Warriors on Thursday night in San Francisco, they too will sit a star LeBron James. The team informed Wednesday afternoon that James, 35, would sit out against Golden State with left groin soreness. It’s just the third match the league’s assists leader and MVP contender (25.5 ppg, 10.6 apg, 7.7 rpg) has missed this season. The news comes the day after a season-high 40 point effort by James, […]

Jaguars decline 2020 option on DT Dareus

Though the Jacksonville Jaguars still “have interest” in defensive tackle Marcell Dareus, they declined Tuesday to pick up his option year for 2020. Speaking to reporters at the NFL Scouting Combine, Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell stated that picking up the $19 million option wasn’t really in the works on a contract Dareus signed last year. With that deal, Dareus would have received a base salary of $9.5 million in 2020 with a $10 million roster bonus due on March 22. Dareus agreed to restructure his contract after the 2018 season, a move that helped the Jaguars save $5 million […]

Cowboys hope to reach deal with Dak Prescott, avoid franchise tag

Time might be running out, but Dallas Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones stays confident a long-term deal can be worked out with quarterback Dak Prescott before the organization will need to use the franchise tag. Jones said there are no talks scheduled with Prescott’s agent, Todd France, but the team intends to meet with him here at some point this week during the NFL scouting combine. Jones said there is no scenario in which the Cowboys would move on from Prescott in 2020. “I mean, Dak’s our quarterback. He’s our quarterback for the future and we have nothing but the greatest respect for […]

Yankees shut down Luis Severino with forearm soreness

New York Yankees starter Luis Severino has been shut down with soreness in his right forearm. Yankees manager Aaron Boone told reporters Thursday that the right-hander will see Dr. Chris Ahmad, the team’s physician, Friday. However, GM Brian Cashman told reporters Severino won’t see the team doctor, adding that he’s uncertain if this is a short or long-term issue. Boone noted Severino has a loose body in his pitching elbow and that the soreness dates back to his last playoff start versus the Houston Astros on Oct. 15. Last year was a mess for Severino. After heading into the season with high expectations, he was immediately shut down in spring […]

Timberwolves´ Karl-Anthony Towns out indefinitely due to injury

The Minnesota Timberwolves can’t seem to catch a break. Trading for D’Angelo Russell before the deadline on Feb. 6 was met with a wave of optimism for the Wolves’ future going forward. They landed the point guard they’ve been chasing for almost a year, and it’ll subdue and fears of Karl-Anthony Towns bolting now that one of his best friends in the league is suiting up alongside him. The posibilities of making the playoffs this season are slim to none, but at the very least the pairing of Towns and Russell could develop some on-court chemistry before next campaign. That plan may be delayed, though, as […]

TE Greg Olsen joining Seahawks on 1-year deal

The first domino of the Seattle Seahawks’ offseason plans has fallen into place. Late Tuesday afternoon, ESPN insider Adam Schefter reported former Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen signed with the Seahawks, a move that was later confirmed by the team. It had been reported earlier in February by Schefter himself there was mutual interest between the Seahawks and Olsen. Now the rumors have become reality as Seattle has made the first headlines of the impending free agency season. This is a great low risk, high reward signing for the Seahawks. With only $5.5 million guaranteed to Olsen, Seattle certainly isn’t […]
