Astros’ Jose Altuve resumes baseball activities, return not set

Jose Altuve restarted some baseball activities this week, but there still isn’t a timetable for when Houston’s star second baseman will return to the team. Altuve fractured his right thumb in the World Baseball Classic and had surgery to repair the injury March 22. After his surgery, Astros general manager Dana Brown stated he would be out at least eight weeks. It has been six weeks so far, and while Altuve was cleared to return to baseball activities this week — including throwing, running and fielding — he hasn’t been cleared to swing. “I think right now it’s hard to tell,” […]

Dusty Baker to return as champion Astros’ manager in 2023

For years, as Dusty Baker chased his first World Series title as a manager, the former big league outfielder would always say if he won one he’d like to win two. Baker will get an opportunity to do just that after he signed a one-year contract with the Houston Astros for the 2023 season. “How many times in your life do you say something and then have the opportunity to fulfill it?” Baker said Wednesday. “I wasn’t just talking. I meant what I said. I love keeping my word. So, hey man we’ve got a chance to win back-to-back and this is […]

Devin Haney picked up in the rematch where he had left off, with another unanimous-decision triumph over George Kambosos to retain the undisputed lightweight championship on Sunday afternoon at Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne, Australia. Haney, who also routed Kambosos in June in Australia, won via scores of 118-110, 119-109 and 118-110. “I knew he was looking for the jab, so I wanted to show other tools in the arsenal,” said Haney, who owns all four 135-pound titles. “The right hand won me the fight tonight.” Haney’s jab, one of boxing’s best, was a major key to his victory, but […]

Chicago Bulls optimistic after Lonzo Ball’s knee surgery ‘went well’ but uncertain when he will return

The Chicago Bulls expressed optimism on Thursday following guard Lonzo Ball’s latest surgery to address the lingering discomfort in his left knee, but his timeline to return to the court remains unclear.
