    Dodgers' Daniel Hudson: Moves to injured list
    2m ago

    Hudson (knee) was diagnosed with a torn ACL and placed on the 15-day injured list Saturday, Eric Stephen of SBNation.com reports.

    The veteran right-hander suffered the injury during Friday's win over Atlanta, and he'll miss the rest of the season after the diagnosis of a torn ACL was confirmed. Hudson finishes 2022 with a 2.22 ERA, 0.90 WHIP and 30:5 K:BB across 24.1 innings, and it's unclear if he'll be healthy for spring training should he opt to return for a 14th MLB season.

    Dodgers' Stefen Romero: Designated for assignment
    3m ago

    Romero was designated for assignment by the Dodgers on Saturday.

    Romero's contract was selected by the Dodgers on Wednesday, but he didn't appear in any games during his brief stint in the majors. He's slashed .270/.337/.461 with three homers, 21 RBI, 15 runs and a stolen base over 24 games at Triple-A Oklahoma City this year, and it's possible that he'll return to the Triple-A club if he goes unclaimed on waivers.

    Dodgers' Mitch White: Officially recalled prior to start
    8m ago

    White was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City ahead of Saturday's start against Atlanta.

    The 27-year-old is stepping in as Saturday's starter after Andrew Heaney (shoulder) was placed on the 15-day injured list Friday. White should have the chance to remain in the Dodgers' rotation during Heaney's absence after he posted a 3.86 ERA and 1.05 WHIP in 25.2 innings over nine appearances (four starts) in the majors earlier this season.

  • Marquez Callaway NO WR
    Saints' Marquez Callaway: Returns for minicamp
    1h ago

    Callaway (thumb) participated in June minicamp, the Saints' official website reports.

    Callaway had thumb surgery early in the offseason, but there weren't any reports of limitations at spring practices. His bigger concern for this year is a beefed-up WR room that now has Jarvis Landry and first-round pick Chris Olave joining Callaway, Michael Thomas (ankle), Deonte Harty and Tre'Quan Smith. There's still some opportunity for Callaway to earn a top-three spot on the depth chart -- especially if Thomas isn't ready for Week 1 -- but the 24-year-old just easily drop to the No. 4/5 role after starting 11 games last season.

  • Jimmy Garoppolo SF QB
    49ers' Jimmy Garoppolo: Not throwing yet
    5h ago

    Garoppolo (shoulder) is expected to resume throwing in the coming weeks, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.

    The 49ers have maintained the veteran quarterback is still on pace to participate in training camp after undergoing offseason shoulder surgery in early March, but Garoppolo has yet to participate in any offseason OTAs as he continues to rehab from the injury. Second-year quarterback Trey Lance has taken all the starting reps in Garoppolo's absence and figures to be the frontrunner for the starting job, especially if the 30-year-old continues to miss time.

  • Demario Davis NO OLB
    Saints' Demario Davis: Agrees to one-year extension
    1d ago

    Davis and the Saints agreed on a contract restructure Friday that will keep the linebacker signed through the 2024 campaign, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

    Davis' base salary will drop slightly in 2023, but he'll still be eligible for hefty incentives during each season remaining on his new three-year deal. Last year, the veteran linebacker earned second-team All-Pro honors after registering his fifth straight season with more than 100 tackles and will likely continue being the leader of the Saints' defense moving forward.

    Bears' Matt Adams: Arrested Thursday
    1d ago

    Adams was arrested in Chicago on Thursday and charged with misdemeanor illegal gun possession and possessing a high-capacity magazine and metal-piercing bullets, Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun Times reports.

    Adams, who joined the Bears on a one-year deal this offseason, had a license for the weapon but it wasn't registered in the state of Illinois. His court date is scheduled for Aug. 24, but it's unclear what type of discipline he'll face from the league.

    Patriots' David Andrews: Restructures contract
    1d ago

    The Patriots restructured Andrews' contract Friday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

    New England converted $3.15 million of Andrews' contract into a signing bonus, which created $2.1 million in cap space for the 2022 campaign. The undrafted center out of Georgia underwent offseason shoulder surgery, but he's expected to be fine for the regular season and should serve as the Patriots' starting center once again.

  • Cade Otton TB TE
    Buccaneers' Cade Otton: May have more opportunity
    3d ago

    Otton (ankle) could see a boost in his overall opportunity in the wake of Rob Gronkowski's retirement earlier this week, Joey Knight of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    The rookie will first have to demonstrate his surgically repaired ankle is back to full health during training camp, but assuming that comes to pass, Otton should have an opportunity to make a mark relatively early in his career. Knight points out that the Buccaneers are likely to sign one of several veteran tight ends still on the market as insurance, but if Otton proves a quick study in the offense and pass-protection schemes, it's conceivable that he garners more snaps than originally planned with no dominant option at the top of the depth chart. Veteran Cameron Brate is currently the Bucs' No. 1 tight end.

    Collins is under contract for two more seasons with San Antonio, though the final year is still not guaranteed.

    Bulls' Lonzo Ball: Making progress in rehab
    1d ago

    Ball (knee) is making progress in his rehabilitation of left knee issues that bothered him last season, K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

    Ball is rehabbing in Los Angeles, with the Bulls sending performance staff to see him every week to track progress. The point guard underwent surgery for a torn meniscus Jan. 28, and despite initial reports that he could be back as soon as six weeks, he never ended up playing again. The expectation should be that Ball will be ready for training camp in October.

  • Devon Toews COL D
    Avalanche's Devon Toews: Adds assist Friday
    16h ago

    Toews logged an assist, two shots on goal and two hits in Friday's 3-2 loss to the Lightning in Game 5.

    Toews set up a Cale Makar goal in the third period, but that was the last goal the Avalanche scored in the game. Through five Stanley Cup Finals outings, Toews has been limited to two assists, so the Lightning have found a way to keep him at least partially in check. The 28-year-old has 15 points, 43 shots on net, 29 hits, 24 blocked shots and a plus-6 rating in 19 playoff contests as he continues to play huge minutes on the top pairing.

    MacKinnon posted an assist and six shots on goal in Friday's 3-2 loss to the Lightning in Game 5.

    MacKinnon helped out on Valeri Nichushkin's second-period marker. While it's now been eight games since MacKinnon posted a multi-point effort, he's earned three goals and four assists in that span to remain steady on offense. The superstar center is up to 12 tallies, 10 assists, 110 shots on net, 26 hits and a plus-10 rating in 19 playoff contests.

    Makar scored a goal on five shots, dished an assist, logged six hits and added two PIM in Friday's 3-2 loss to the Lightning in Game 5.

    Makar set up Valeri Nichushkin's second-period marker before scoring one himself in the third. This was Makar's fourth multi-point game in his last six outings as he continues to dazzle on both offense and defense. The 23-year-old Norris Trophy winner has earned eight goals, 21 helpers, 70 shots on net, 42 blocked shots, 27 hits and a plus-8 rating through 19 playoff appearances this year.

    17h ago

    Kuemper stopped 26 of 29 shots in Friday's 3-2 loss to the Lightning in Game 5.

    The first goal Kuemper gave up was a softie to Jan Rutta in the first period. He also allowed Nikita Kucherov (on the power play) and Ondrej Palat to score in the contest, which saw the Avalanche squander their first chance to secure the Stanley Cup. Kuemper's given up 13 goals across five contests in the Cup finals, and he'll likely get the nod in Sunday's Game 6 in Tampa.
