Sixers’ Tyrese Maxey edges Coby White as NBA’s most improved

Philadelphia 76ers guard Tyrese Maxey was named the NBA’s most improved player Tuesday night, defeating out Chicago Bulls guard Coby White and Houston Rockets center Alperen Sengun. Maxey, 23, had a breakthrough season with the Sixers, averaging career highs in points (25.9), rebounds (3.7), assists (6.2), steals (1.0) and 3-pointers made (212). He also became an All-Star for the first time as he transitioned into playing point guard full-time following James Harden being traded to the LA Clippers. “I have had to take different steps,” Maxey stated during an interview with TNT before the Minnesota Timberwolves played the Phoenix Suns in Game 2 of their first-round series Tuesday night, when he was presented with the award. “In […]

Struggling Pirates closer David Bednar booed at home

David Bednar’s first three seasons in Pittsburgh largely have been charmed ones as the hometown kid developed into a two-time All-Star closer for a team convinced it’s on the rise. And while the Pirates might be on their way to contention, Bednar is faltering. The right-hander blew his third save in four opportunities on Tuesday when Detroit rallied for a 5-3 victory. The most jarring moment wasn’t the walk or the two batters he hit that fueled the Tigers’ comeback, but the sound of Bednar being booed at home by a crowd that has emphatically embraced him from the moment he arrived from […]

Phillies slugger Bryce Harper hits 3 homers for first hits of season

Bryce Harper’s first hit of the season was a big one. Same for his second. And his third. Harper homered in all three of his at-bats for Philadelphia during Tuesday night’s 9-4 victory over the Cincinnati Reds. The two-time NL MVP went 0 for 11 while playing in three of the Phillies’ first four games. The 31-year-old Harper drove a 1-2 cut fastball from Graham Ashcraft deep to center in the first inning. The 420-foot solo shot had an exit velocity of 107.7 mph. He came up again in the fourth and hit another solo shot to right. The 367-foot homer on the […]

Injury-ravaged Cavs sign Marcus Morris Sr. to 10-day deal

Missing three regular starters with injuries, the Cleveland Cavaliers signed forward Marcus Morris Sr. to a 10-day contract on Monday to give them some depth. Morris played in 37 matches earlier this season for Philadelphia before being traded to San Antonio on Feb. 8. The 34-year-old agreed to a buyout with the Spurs and was waived Feb. 29, allowing him to stay eligible for the postseason. It’s possible he’ll stay beyond his 10-day contract with the Cavs, who have been wrecked by injuries. Cleveland has lost three of four and is just 4-6 in its last 10 games.

Jackson Merrill to join Padres for opener in Korea, Shildt says

San Diego Padres manager Mike Shildt stopped just short of declaring that shortstop prospect Jackson Merrill has already locked down an everyday role in his outfield, even though it has become fairly obvious throughout camp. All he would say Tuesday is that the 20-year-old shortstop-turned-center fielder will be on the Padres’ season-opening trip to South Korea. “He’s earned his way on the plane,” Shildt said shortly after watching Merrill hit an opposite-field home run off All-Star starter Zac Gallen. “He’s earned what’s coming after the plane.” The Padres started spring training with only two outfielders on their 40-man roster and promised to […]

The Brooklyn Nets revealed Thursday morning that Ben Simmons will miss the rest of the regular season because of his ongoing back issues. “Ben Simmons will remain out for the remainder of the season while he consults with specialists and explores treatment options for the nerve impingement in his lower back,” the team said in a statement. “Simmons, along with his representatives and Nets medical personnel, are currently in discussions with numerous experts to determine the course of action that will provide him with the best opportunity for long-term sustainable health.” Simmons was able to play only 15 matches this season because of the […]

Dodgers’ Yoshinobu Yamamoto impresses in Cactus League debut

Even Shohei Ohtani was intrigued by Yoshinobu Yamamoto’s exhibition debut Wednesday, making the 30-minute drive through Phoenix suburbs in a white convertible to show his support for a fellow Japanese star, even though he wasn’t playing in the game. Yamamoto put on quite a show. The 25-year-old struck out three batters over two scoreless innings versus the defending World Series champion Texas Rangers, giving a glimpse into why the Los Angeles Dodgers believe the right-hander can become a big league ace. “I was just trying to do my job, trying to stay calm and focus on what I have to do,” Yamamoto said through an […]

Pirates, Mitch Keller agree to five-year extension

Right-hander Mitch Keller and the Pittsburgh Pirates are in agreement on a five-year, $77 million contract extension, sources tell ESPN, locking up another young core player as the team continues to try to return to the postseason for the first time in nearly a decade. The deal, which starts this year and ends after the 2028 season, will pay Keller $7.5 million in 2024 — more than $2 million above where he had settled with the team in arbitration, according to sources. In what would’ve been his final year of arbitration in 2025, Keller will receive $15 million. For the three free agent years […]

Hawks center Onyeka Okongwu (toe) out for ‘foreseeable future’

The Hawks are preparing to be without center Onyeka Okongwu for an indefinite period, leaving the team with serious front-line depth issues as it returns from the All-Star break. Coach Quin Snyder stated following Thursday’s practice Okongwu, who missed the final game before the break with a sprained left toe, “is not going to be available for the foreseeable future.” Snyder’s announcement was a surprise following initial expectations Okongwu would miss a week to 10 days. The loss of Okongwu, who has shared playing time with starting center Clint Capela, comes as Capela has missed the past six matches with a left adductor strain. Capela […]

Blue Jays’ Alek Manoah eyes bounce-back after trying 3-9 season

Alek Manoah didn’t look like himself when he arrived at spring training last year following a third-place finish in the AL Cy Young Award voting, according to Toronto Blue Jays teammate Kevin Gausman. “I think he tried to rush and get ready and never got into a good spot,” Gausman said Saturday. “Whether it was mechanically or physically with his arm, once you start the season, it’s hard to gain it back. You have to use spring training to get all those worked out.” Manoah, 26, was optioned to the minors twice and concluded 3-9 with a 5.87 ERA, down from a 16-7 record […]
