Dodgers non-tender Cody Bellinger, making him a free agent

Cody Bellinger, a 27-year-old outfielder who was an MVP as recently as 2019, was non-tendered by the Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday, a somewhat expected move that nonetheless encapsulates his precipitous downfall offensively. Bellinger was due to make something in the neighborhood of $18 million in 2023, which would have been his final season before free agency. Instead, he’ll venture into the free agent market a year early, though the Dodgers and Bellinger’s agent, Scott Boras, can renegotiate a different contract, perhaps one that covers multiple years at a lower rate. Regardless, a Dodgers team coming off back-to-back 100-plus-win seasons is in […]

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. Bulls coach Billy Donovan met with director of athletic performance Chip Schaefer, who was in Los Angeles earlier in the week for Ball’s surgery, before practice on Thursday and received reports that Ball’s second knee operation since January “went well” and that Ball was in good spirits. However, Donovan acknowledged that until Ball resumes his rehab process, it’s difficult to determine when the Bulls might get their point guard back. “You […]

Chicago Bulls guard Lonzo Ball will undergo arthroscopic surgery on left knee in Los Angeles

Chicago Bulls guard Lonzo Ball will undergo an arthroscopic debridement of his left knee and will be reevaluated in four to six weeks, the team revealed on Wednesday. The surgery is scheduled for next Wednesday in Los Angeles — the procedure will take place eight months after an initial knee surgery in January to repair a torn meniscus. Ball has not played in a game since Jan. 14. Before the surgery in January, the team announced a recovery timeline of six to eight weeks, but the discomfort in his left knee has persisted throughout the rehab process whenever he tries to ramp up […]

Los Angeles Dodgers’ Walker Buehler undergoes second Tommy John surgery, flexor tendon repair

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. […]

New York Yankees reliever Chad Green to have Tommy John surgery

New York Yankees reliever Chad Green will undergo Tommy John surgery, manager Aaron Boone revealed Sunday. Boone stated Green, who was placed on the injured list Saturday because of his ailing right elbow, is still deciding on who will perform the surgery. The team faced the right-hander on the 15-day IL on Saturday with what was described at the time as a right elbow strain. However, needing second and third opinions, Boone didn’t sugarcoat things — calling the injury “significant” before the Yankees’ 7-5 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Saturday.

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 […]

New York Yankees unsure of injury progress due to MLB lockout

Major League Baseball’s lockout has left the Yankees unaware of how DJ LeMahieu, Aaron Hicks, Jameson Taillon and Darren O’Day are progressing following surgery.

Los Angeles Lakers’ Trevor Ariza has ankle surgery, out at least two months

Trevor Ariza will be sidelined about two months after having surgery on his right ankle, the Los Angeles Lakers revealed Wednesday. Ariza, one of 11 new players added by the Lakers in the offseason, underwent an arthroscopic debridement procedure Wednesday. He has missed most of training camp due to the ankle. The Lakers stated Ariza, 36, will be reevaluated in approximately eight weeks.

Syndergaard sharp in brief return, Mets sweep Marlins in DH

Noah Syndergaard looked sharp in his brief but long-awaited return from Tommy John surgery, and the New York Mets defeated the Miami Marlins 2-1 in nine innings Tuesday night for a doubleheader sweep. Javier Báez dashed home from third base with the winning run in extra innings as Anthony Bass (3-9) fumbled James McCann’s slow bouncer between the mound and home plate. In the opener, Francisco Lindor homered and drove in three runs to help the Mets stop a five-game losing streak with a 5-2 triumph. Marcus Stroman went five innings for his 10th victory.
