LA Clippers’ Steve Ballmer excited for Kawhi Leonard’s expected return, says ‘sky is the limit’ for team

LA Clippers owner Steve Ballmer raised his hands up and started rocking back and forth as he started to think about the idea of a healthy Kawhi Leonard returning this upcoming season. After not having Leonard all of last season while he recovered from a torn right ACL, Ballmer stated Tuesday he is “really excited” about the Clippers, suggesting they should be staring at a deep postseason run if they can stay healthy for an entire regular season and postseason for once. “I think the sky is the limit for our team,” he said. “It’ll be our effort, our energy. Of course, you […]

Texas Rangers trade Willie Calhoun to San Francisco Giants for Steven Duggar

The San Francisco Giants acquired Willie Calhoun on Thursday, sending outfielder Steven Duggar to Texas for the outfielder who was the main return for the Rangers when they traded pitcher Yu Darvish five years ago. It will be a homecoming for Calhoun, and a move he requested after being sent to the minors on May 1. The 27-year-old was born in the East Bay city of Vallejo and attended Benicia High School. “We wish Willie the best in his opportunity with San Francisco,” Rangers president Jon Daniels said. “It’s a fresh start for him, as well as being close to home.” San Francisco also gets cash in the […]

Max Scherzer, Jacob deGrom moving closer to return with New York Mets

Max Scherzer and Jacob deGrom are moving closer to a return for the National League East-leading Mets. Scherzer, who injured his left oblique while pitching versus St. Louis on May 18, returned to New York after rehabbing in Florida and threw in the outfield at Citi Field before Tuesday night’s series opener versus Milwaukee. The 37-year-old right-hander, a three-time Cy Young Award winner, is expected to throw a simulated game Thursday. Scherzer stated he’s not ready to put a timetable on when he might return to the active roster. “The way to describe this injury, the rehab of this, half the battle’s getting back […]

San Diego Padres pitcher Mike Clevinger emotional after impressive start in return from Tommy John surgery

Mike Clevinger held it together as long as he could. But after ultimately getting back on a major league mound following elbow surgery, a lockout, knee sprain and a rainout that had delayed his return for San Diego, Clevinger couldn’t control his emotions. “I wasn’t sure I was going to pitch again,” Clevinger said Wednesday, his voice cracking as he choked back tears. “So this is big.” Clevinger had an impressive first start since having Tommy John surgery in 2020, and Manny Machado hit a two-run homer, as the Padres edged the Cleveland Guardians 5-4 in the first game of a doubleheader. Machado connected in the third […]

No timetable on return of Dallas Mavericks’ Luka Doncic as MRI confirms left calf strain

An MRI on Monday confirmed that Mavericks superstar Luka Doncic suffered a left calf strain in the regular-season finale, the team revealed. No timetable has been set for Doncic’s recovery, but the Mavs have not ruled him out for Saturday afternoon’s Game 1 versus the Utah Jazz. “If he’s able to go out and put on his shoes, then he’s going to go,” coach Jason Kidd said after Tuesday’s practice, when Doncic received treatment. “If he can’t, we’re not going to put him in a situation to jeopardize it and make things worse.” Spencer Dinwiddie will start if Doncic is not available. Dinwiddie has averaged 15.8 […]

Norman Powell leads Clippers to win in return from injury, says LA can be ‘really dangerous’ in postseason

After scoring a game-high 24 points in his first outing alongside Paul George, Norman Powell thinks the LA Clippers can be a potential headache for adversaries if they get out of the play-in next week. Powell returned Wednesday after missing nearly two months because of a fractured bone in his left foot and hit his first six shots to help the Clippers build a 39-point lead before holding on for a 113-109 victory over the Phoenix Suns at Crypto.com Arena. His return came just three matches before the Clippers are set to play in next week’s play-in as the eighth-placed team in the West. “I think we can be […]

St. Louis Cardinals’ Albert Pujols to make 22nd consecutive Opening Day start, will be DH on Thursday

Albert Pujols will be in the starting lineup for the St. Louis Cardinals versus the Pittsburgh Pirates when he starts his final big league season Thursday in what should be an emotional return to Busch Stadium. Cardinals manager Oliver Marmol announced Monday that Pujols, who signed a $2.5 million contract to return to the club where he became a star, will be the designated hitter for his 22nd consecutive Opening Day start. That matches Hank Aaron and Carl Yastrzemski for second most behind only Pete Rose, who made 23 straight during his career. “I don’t want to set expectations because I like to be surprised, […]

Texas Rangers top prospect Josh Jung has surgery to repair torn labrum in left shoulder

Josh Jung, a top prospect for the Texas Rangers, had surgery Wednesday to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder, ending the third baseman’s opportunity of being an option for the big league roster this spring. Jung was lifting weights before the opening of the team’s minor league camp in Arizona when he felt discomfort in his non-throwing shoulder. He was initially diagnosed last week with a strain. “That was the impetus for us getting a test on his shoulder, which revealed a level of damage that obviously has required surgery,” general manager Chris Young said. “The extent of preexisting […]

James Harden explodes for 39, has Brooklyn Nets’ confidence ‘through the roof’ with Kevin Durant nearing return

James Harden’s big night for the Brooklyn Nets started with a couple of step-back 3-pointers, but it was the burst in his step and explosion in his drives that really opened eyes on Monday night. In his second match back from the NBA’s health and safety protocols, a fresh Harden continued his dominant play of late with 39 points, 15 assists and 8 rebounds to lead the Nets to a 124-108 victory over the depleted LA Clippers. Earlier in the season when Harden struggled to regain his form after a hamstring injury restricted his offseason workouts, the guard said his body wasn’t ready […]
