    Padres' Taylor Rogers: Handed blown save and loss
    2h ago

    Rogers (0-1) was dealt the loss and blown save during Saturday's 4-2 loss to Pittsburgh, allowing three runs on two hits and one walk in the ninth inning.

    Rogers entered in the ninth inning to protect a one-run lead and served up two early baserunners before permitting a go-ahead three-run home run to Ke,Bryan Hayes. The lefty had only allowed one earned run through 20.1 innings prior to Saturday's blip, and the 31-year-old now possesses a ERA and 0.75 WHIP in addition to an MLB-best 17 saves.

    Dodgers' Mookie Betts: Keeps rolling in win Saturday
    2h ago

    Betts went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and a stolen base in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Diamondbacks.

    Betts got the Dodgers off to a positive start with a solo shot to right field to lead off the game, and he followed with a third-inning single and stolen base. The veteran outfielder has been on a remarkable run of late, slashing .500/.583/1.200 with six homers, 12 RBI, 12 runs and a steal over his past eight contests. Betts now leads the National League with 14 long balls on the campaign.

    Diamondbacks' Merrill Kelly: Takes loss Saturday
    2h ago

    Kelly (3-3) was tagged with the loss against the Dodgers on Saturday, allowing three runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out five over five innings.

    Kelly gave up a leadoff homer to Mookie Betts in the first inning but bounced back by keeping the Dodgers from scoring again until the fifth, when Los Angeles tagged him for a pair of runs. That was enough to send Kelly to the loss, as Arizona managed only two second-inning runs in the contest. The right-hander has given up three or fewer runs in nine of 10 outings this season, but an eight-run blowup against the Dodgers on May 17 has his ERA at 3.67 on the campaign. He's expected to make his next start in Pittsburgh on Friday.

  • Joe Musgrove SD SP
    Padres' Joe Musgrove: Fans seven in quality start
    2h ago

    Musgrove registered a no-decision during Saturday's 4-2 loss to Pittsburgh, allowing one run on six hits and two walks with seven strikeouts in six innings.

    Musgrove cruised through every inning except the third and fourth, when he escaped a bases-loaded jam and permitted his lone run respectively. Unfortunately, Taylor Rogers blew the save in the ninth as San Diego lost a game Musgrove started for the first time all season. The 29-year-old carries a dazzling 1.86 ERA and 0.98 WHIP -- both of which rank top 10 in MLB -- into a start against Milwaukee next weekend.

    Dodgers' Daniel Hudson: Notches third save
    2h ago

    Hudson picked up a save against the Diamondbacks on Saturday, pitching a scoreless ninth inning during which he allowed one hit and struck out two.

    Hudson found himself in immediate trouble when Ketel Marte led off the bottom of the ninth inning with a double, but the veteran reliever escaped with the save by following with a groundout and two strikeouts. Hudson was granted the save opportunity because regular closer Craig Kimbrel threw 26 pitches Friday and realized that his body "just didn't feel good" Saturday, per Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times. Kimbrel is expected to be available Sunday, but with three saves in three opportunities on the campaign, Hudson has shown that he can be an effective option when Kimbrel is unavailable.

  • Ke'Bryan Hayes PIT 3B
    Pirates' Ke'Bryan Hayes: Slugs game-winning homer
    2h ago

    Hayes went 3-for-5 with a three-run home run in a 4-2 victory over San Diego on Saturday.

    Hayes singled in the third and fifth inning before connecting on a go-ahead three-run shot off Taylor Rogers in the top of the ninth for his second three-hit game this week. Surprisingly enough, the long ball was the 25-year-old's first as his first 11 extra-base hits were all doubles, and his .092 isolated power ranks bottom 25 in the league. Hayes has never been a huge power threat with 11 homers in 120 games prior to this season but should see an uptick in long balls soon.

    Texans' Eric Murray: Shoulder surgery revealed
    1d ago

    Murray underwent shoulder surgery during the offseason, Aaron Wilson of SportsTalk 790 AM reports.

    The surgery slipped through the news cracks during the offseason but came to light this week when Murray did not practice as Houston began its OTAs. "We don't have many guys that are out completely. Jonathan Greenard and a few of our other players, Eric Murray, you see some of the guys had offseason surgeries and you probably won't see them until training camp, but everybody's right on schedule being able to do something," head coach Lovie Smith said. Murray is expected to be ready for training camp and is set to resume his role as a starting safety.

    Browns' David Njoku: Agrees to four-year extension
    2d ago

    The Browns and Njoku agreed on a four-year, $56.75 million contract extension Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    The Browns placed the franchise tag on Njoku earlier in the offseason, but the tight end will now get a massive new extension. Per Rapoport, the deal includes $28 million guaranteed and will pay Njoku an average of $14.19 million per year, making Njoku the fifth-highest-paid tight end in the NFL. The 2017 first-round pick posted 475 yards and four touchdowns last season -- his highest marks since his sophomore campaign.

  • Rachaad White TB RB
    Buccaneers' Rachaad White: Could make sizable rookie impact
    2d ago

    White's versatile skill set could allow him to enjoy a sizable role during his rookie season, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports. "He's a good talent, that's why we drafted him," Bucs coach Todd Bowles said. "Leonard is our starter, obviously. We look for White to compete with Vaughn and Gio and we'll see from there. ... He has good size. He has good feet and good speed. But he's capable of spelling Leonard, he's capable of catching a ball."

    The investment of a third-round pick in White already speaks to the belief the Buccaneers have in his ability, and both the Arizona State product's college body of work and Bowles' comments indicate there could be plenty of opportunity for him behind lead back Leonard Fournette. With Ronald Jones now in Kansas City and Giovani Bernard primarily suited for a pass-catching/third-down role, White's primary competition for any complementary early-down reps appears to be Ke'Shawn Vaughn, who's yet to establish himself after being taken in the third round in his own right in 2020. White's pass-catching chops also could be a significant factor in earning snaps, with running backs coach Todd McNair noting the rookie's range and catch radius are particularly impressive.

    Buccaneers' Cyril Grayson: Healthy and ready to compete
    2d ago

    Grayson, who finished the Buccaneers' postseason run in January nursing a hamstring injury, is healthy and could make a push for playing time in the latter portion of the wideout depth chart, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.

    The well-traveled speedster made a splash Weeks 16 and 17 last season with 81 receiving yards in both games, including a key 50-yard touchdown reception in the fourth quarter of a narrow win over the Jets in the latter contest. Grayson has impressed offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich with his progress and gradually successful transition from college track star to wide receiver. "I think he's truly confident now," said Leftwich. "I think he truly believes that he can get it done, and it's fun for me to see the confidence that he shows up in practice with every day. It's like a whole different guy from three years ago."

    Buccaneers' Tom Brady: Finally past MCL issue
    2d ago

    Brady noted Wednesday that he feels his left knee is finally back to full health after the MCL surgery he underwent in June 2021, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Brady originally suffered an MCL tear in the knee back in 2019 while still with the Patriots, but he never addressed the issue that following offseason due to his belief the injury would heal on its own. That led to the future Hall of Famer playing his 2020 debut, Super Bowl-winning campaign with the Buccaneers while managing the injury, and the knee reportedly still didn't feel all the way back to full strength throughout last season after the surgery. Consequently, Brady notes this offseason has been the first time he's felt unrestricted with respect to his leg in three years, which has allowed him to engage in sprint work for his mobility and other similar workouts that weren't possible before.

  • Jalen Tolbert DAL WR
    Cowboys' Jalen Tolbert: Nursing hamstring issue
    2d ago

    Tolbert is dealing with a hamstring injury at OTAs, Nick Eatman & Layten Praytor of the Cowboys' official site report.

    Tolbert joins Michael Gallup (torn ACL) and James Washington (foot) on the sideline during the early portion of OTAs. The rookie third-round pick should have ample opportunities for practice reps once back on the field, but Dallas may also hesitate to rush him back from a hamstring strain. For now, the likes of Noah Brown, Simi Fehoko and T.J. Vasher will benefit from added work behind No. 1 wideout CeeDee Lamb.
