Los Angeles Dodgers star right-hander Walker Buehler underwent Tommy John surgery for the second time in his career on Tuesday, officially ending his season and likely keeping him out for 2023 as well. “There’s no sugarcoating it,” said Andrew Friedman, president of baseball operations. “It was a tough blow but we’ll get him back. I know he’s already itching.” The 28-year-old Buehler last pitched June 10, when elbow discomfort forced him from the match. With imaging on his elbow unclear, Dr. Neal ElAttrache planned surgery for Tuesday during which he would determine whether Buehler needed a full reconstruction of his ulnar collateral ligament. […]

Cameron Norrie beats cramping Andy Murray in all-British showdown to reach Western and Southern Open last-16

In a battle of the Brits, some 3,900 miles from home, Cameron Norrie defeated Andy Murray, 3-6, 6-4, 6-4, in a two-hour-and-37-minute second-round clash at the Western & Southern Open on Wednesday. It was just the second career meeting between Norrie, the current British No. 1 and world No. 11, and Murray, the three-time major champion.

LeBron James, Los Angeles Lakers agree to 2-year, $97.1 million extension that includes 3rd-year player option

Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James has agreed to a two-year, $97.1 million contract extension that contains a player option for the 2024-25 season, Klutch Sports CEO Rich Paul told ESPN on Wednesday. The extension, which includes a 15% trade kicker, makes James the highest-earning player in NBA history with $532 million in career guaranteed money, surpassing Brooklyn Nets star Kevin Durant. James is ineligible for a no-trade clause because he agreed on an extension — not a new deal. But the new contract’s starting salary of $46.7 million, the 15% trade kicker and James’ stature as one of history’s great players likely make him a […]
