    • DJ LeMahieu NYY 2B
      Yankees' DJ LeMahieu: Blasts 14th homer
      4m ago

      LeMahieu went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in an 8-4 loss against the Rockies on Sunday.

      The 31-year-old's incredible season continued Sunday, as he hit his 14th homer. He's now just one shy of his career-high 15 home runs from last year, and LeMahieu is on an eight-game hitting streak. He is batting .333 with 14 home runs, 68 RBI, 71 runs and four steals in 375 at-bats this season.

      Rockies' Charlie Blackmon: Posts four hits
      8m ago

      Blackmon went 4-for-5 with a solo home run and three runs in an 8-4 victory against the Yankees on Sunday.

      The 33-year-old led off the game with a solo shot, which was clearly an indication of things to come. This was Blackmon's first four-hit game since June 15, and incredibly, he almost went as long without a homer, as June 30 was the last time he went deep prior to Sunday. Blackmon is batting .319 with a .602 slugging percentage, 21 home runs, 60 RBI, 74 runs and two steals in 354 at-bats this season.

      10m ago

      Zimmerman (foot) will undergo an MRI on Monday, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.

      Zimmerman missed around two months earlier this season with the same issue, though the Nationals won't know the extent of his injury until the results of his MRI return. Matt Adams and Howie Kendrick would see more playing time at first base if Zimmerman is forced to miss an extended period of time.

    • James Paxton NYY SP
      Yankees' James Paxton: Suffers fifth loss
      12m ago

      Paxton (5-5) allowed seven runs (four earned) on five hits with three walks and six strikeouts over just 3.1 innings while taking a loss against the Rockies on Sunday.

      The 30-year-old remains winless in July, as he hasn't capture a victory since June 21. Paxton averaged almost two strikeouts per inning Sunday, but that's about the only thing that went his way. He had trouble with control, gave up a homer and struggled to overcome defensive lapses. Even with a few of the runs considered unearned, Paxton saw his ERA rise to 4.20 after this outing. He also has a 1.47 WHIP, .272 batting average against and 108 strikeouts in 85.2 innings this season. Paxton will look to get back on track Friday at the Red Sox.

    • German Marquez COL SP
      Rockies' German Marquez: Beats Yankees
      17m ago

      Marquez (9-5) allowed two runs on three hits with two walks and five strikeouts across seven innings while earning a victory against the Yankees on Sunday.

      This was how owners were hoping Marquez would respond after yielding 11 runs in 2.2 innings during his last start. After such a terrible performance, Marquez couldn't possibly bring his numbers back to where they were after one good start, but this was a step in the right direction. He has a 4.99 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 133 strikeouts in 137 innings this season. Marquez will pitch next in Cincinnati on Friday.

      Jones hasn't received the new contract he desires, but he apparently is confident about a deal eventually being completed. He was a spectator during mandatory minicamp in June, not wanting to aggravate an issue with his foot. The 30-year-old wideout may reconsider his amicable stance if negotiations don't wrap up soon.

      Ravens' Michael Pierce: Cleared for training camp
      4h ago

      Pierce (undisclosed) was removed from the non-football injury (NFI) list after passing a physical and will be available for Thursday's practice, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports.

      Pierce's time on the NFI lasted just two days, as the Ravens were apparently going to keep him inactive until he was back in shape after failing to take part in minicamp last month due to conditioning issues. Pierce is believed to be in line for a contract extension at some point this offseason, and the defensive lineman being cleared to practice should help expedite that process.

      Patriots' Ken Webster: Placed on PUP list
      7h ago

      Webster (undisclosed) was placed on New England's Physically Unable to Perform list Sunday, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

      Webster was healthy when the Patriots selected him in the seventh round of the 2019 NFL Draft in late April, so it's unclear what his current issue is or how long he may need to recover. The injury comes at an unfortunate time for the Mississippi product as he tries to make a name for himself in New England's secondary. Webster can be activated off the PUP list at any time between now and the end of preseason.

      Korver agreed to a one-year contract with the Bucks on Saturday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

      Korver had narrowed his choices down to Milwaukee and Philadelphia, but his past relationship with coach Mike Budenholzer likely gave the Bucks and edge. The veteran sharp-shooter will not likely see heavy minutes, but his experience could make him valuable in clutch situations when the team needs a spark off the bench. He hit 2.0 triples per game on 38.4 percent from beyond the arc last season.

If he does get the opportunity to play alongside McDavid, Neal could threaten the 30-goal mark.
