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 […]

Miguel Andujar requests trade from New York Yankees following demotion

Miguel Andujar has requested a trade from the New York Yankees after being demoted to the minors, according to multiple reports. Andujar informed Yankees manager Aaron Boone of his wish to be traded Friday after New York optioned the outfielder to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, according to reports. The New York Post reported that Andujar has been seeking a trade since the end of the 2021 season. The Yankees have not confirmed the reports, and Boone would not elaborate on his discussion with Andujar, calling the demotion a result of a “tough numbers game.” Looking for the best online betting site and Live betting?

Toronto Blue Jays trade Randal Grichuk to Colorado Rockies for Raimel Tapia

The Toronto Blue Jays have traded slugger Randal Grichuk to the Colorado Rockies in exchange for outfielder Raimel Tapia, it was announced Thursday. The Rockies will receive $9.7 million in cash from the Blue Jays, while Toronto also gets minor league infielder Adrian Pinto in the deal. Grichuk, who was dealt two days after hitting a grand slam in a spring training game, hit .241 with 22 home runs and 81 RBIs for Toronto last season, playing primarily in center and right field. The cash going to Colorado will offset a little more than half of the $18.7 million that Grichuk is owed over the final two […]

Brooklyn Nets trade James Harden to Philadelphia 76ers for Ben Simmons, Seth Curry, Andre Drummond

The Brooklyn Nets and Philadelphia 76ers agreed to a blockbuster trade just hours before Thursday’s deadline, with James Harden and Paul Millsap going to Philadelphia and Ben Simmons, Seth Curry, Andre Drummond and two first-round draft picks going to Brooklyn, sources told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. Brooklyn will receive Philadelphia’s unprotected 2022 first-round pick, with the right to defer it to 2023, as well as a top-8-protected 2027 first-round pick, according to Wojnarowski. That pick would remain top-8 protected in 2028, and will turn into two second-round picks — and $2 million in cash — if it doesn’t convey in either season, sources said. The Nets also are waiving DeAndre’ Bembry to create roster room […]

Cleveland Cavaliers acquire Caris LeVert in trade with Indiana Pacers

The Cleveland Cavaliers got Indiana Pacers guard Caris LeVert in a trade Sunday, making a significant addition to one of the most promising young rosters in the Eastern Conference. LeVert goes to the Cavaliers with a 2022 second-round pick via Miami for Ricky Rubio’s expiring contract, a lottery-protected 2022 first-round pick and two second-round picks. The Pacers get a 2022 second-round draft pick via Houston that is likely to be in the low 30s. The Cavaliers are also sending a 2027 second-round pick via the Utah Jazz.

New York Yankees release outfielder Clint Frazier, infielder Rougned Odor

Outfielder Clint Frazier and infielder Rougned Odor were released by the New York Yankees on Tuesday after they were designated for assignment four days ago and went unclaimed on waivers. The 27-year-old Frazier was the fifth pick overall in the 2013 amateur draft by Cleveland and was a prized prospect when he was obtained by the Yankees in a July 2016 trade that sent reliever Andrew Miller to the Indians. Frazier made his major league debut in July 2017, but the outfielder never has had more than 246 plate appearances in a campaign. His 2018 season was wrecked when he collided with an outfield […]

Seattle Seahawks expected to release former starting CB Tre Flowers

The Seahawks are expected to release former starting cornerback Tre Flowers in what marks more turnover for Seattle at the position, a source confirms to ESPN on Tuesday. Flowers started the season as a starter but was benched in favor of Sidney Jones after a loss to the Minnesota Vikings in Week 3. Flowers’ issues in coverage continued in that game, and afterwards, he described it as a scheme issue while saying there was confusion among some Seattle defenders on how to defend certain route concepts. Looking for the best online betting site and Live betting? Visit Heritage Sports! Coach Pete Carroll later chalked up Flowers’ comments to […]

Houston Rockets, John Wall working to find trade deal

The Houston Rockets and John Wall have agreed to work together in an effort to find a trade destination for the veteran point guard, as the franchise is committed to moving forward with Kevin Porter Jr. and Jalen Green as its starting backcourt. The commitment to the 20-year-old Porter and 18-year-old Green leaves Wall, a five-time All-Star who was traded to Houston in the Russell Westbrook deal last year, without a starting role. Wall, 31, is not estimated to play for Houston, as team management and Wall mutually decided that a bench role for him wouldn’t be beneficial to either party, sources said.
