It’s difficult to believe that the Jags could pay $7 million up front to a guy who really hasn’t been productive and is coming off two injury-hit years without getting any team options tacked onto the end of the contract.

WR Jordy Nelson, Raiders Grade: C Even typing Raiders next to Jordy Nelson’s name seems weird, but after the Packers cut their longtime wideout earlier this week, it seemed likely he would find interest elsewhere.

We are 100 percent certain Foltynewicz quickly forgot about the arbitration loss, because later in the day, his wife Brittany gave birth to their son, Michael Jett Foltynewicz. The couple shared the news on Instagram.

In case you’re wondering, that $100,000 difference in Foltynewicz’s arbitration case was the smallest amount in an MLB case this year. While it seems such a trivial amount could have been easily resolved with a compromise, according to the Journal-Constitution, the Braves have a file-and-trial arbitration policy that doesn’t involve negotiation.

Fanatics owner Michael Rubin after Panthers

Another bidder has emerged in the race to buy the Carolina Panthers: Michael Rubin, the owner of sports apparel retailer Fanatics.

Sources say Rubin — whose primary home is in Pennsylvania and who owns a stake in the Philadelphia 76ers, New Jersey Devils and the Premier League team Crystal Palace — is considered a serious bidder in the race to buy the first NFL team up for sale in 3 ? years.

When reached Sunday morning, Rubin declined to comment.

The New York Giants have released cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, the team announced Sunday.

He insisted he mishandled the events leading to his suspension in October, both in how he acted during a game against the Los Angeles Chargers on Oct. 8 and two days later when McAdoo told him he would be inactive for a trip to Denver.

To be honest, Coach called me up and he said some things and I kind of didn’t agree with it and I handled it the wrong way, Rodgers-Cromartie said then. At the end of the day, that’s on me. So the suspension, I take that. All I can do is try to work back to get in good grace with the guys. I’m just glad that they didn’t let this turn them from me and they accepted me and I’m just back working, man.

Janoris Jenkins remains the only proven cornerback on the Giants, with troubled Eli Apple still on the roster and potentially slated to replace Rodgers-Cromartie in the lineup.

Blue Jays injury updates: Marcus Stroman, Troy Tulowitzki still uncertain for Opening Day

Regular-season baseball is less than a month away and the Blue Jays have yet to see their ace pitcher or starting shortstop in live action this spring.

Shoulder inflammation has kept right-hander Marcus Stroman from making his spring debut, and Troy Tulowitzki is still nursing an ankle injury from last July.

Manager John Gibbons has been peppered with questions about the two over the last few weeks, and again on Sunday he offered little into their current status, but did reveal he doesn’t expect Tulowitzki to be in the lineup on Opening Day.

The good news for the Giants’ pitching staff is that this year’s defense is much better. Denard Span and his -27 DRS are gone. Andrew McCutchen will be patrolling right field, where he was a plus defender in a limited sample size in 2017. Evan Longoria was worth 11 DRS last year, replacing a third base carousel that cost Giants pitchers two runs. And, of course, they still have Brandon Crawford, Brandon Belt and Buster Posey, who can each be Gold Glove contenders.

While all the Giants’ starters could theoretically be on this list, Samardzija gets the nod because of his 6.41 K/BB ratio, which was the fourth best in baseball last season.

Even with his home run problem, he recorded a very respectable 3.61 FIP. If nothing else, he could improve if his ERA falls to what it “should” be.

“They’re just not trying that hard,” Jansen said in an interview with FanRag Sports. “I think they are competing for the championship of revenue (profit). I think they are trying to see who can have the most revenue. I think they don’t care about the trophy. No disrespect, but we want to see more teams be competitive.

“There’s one team competing for the title in the NL East,” Jansen said, alluding to the Nationals.

Starting pitchers like Jake Arrieta, Lance Lynn and Alex Cobb remained unsigned, joining position players Carlos Gonzalez and Mike Moustakas. Jansen feels as though those caliber players should currently be on rosters.seahawks_023_f1f38250b32a563d-180x180

Nick Young appears to be rubbing off on Stephen Curry

Nick Young is famous for a lot. He was engaged to Iggy Azalea, he is the subject of a meme, and he will never outgrow the nickname “Swaggy P.”

Gordon broke in as a shortstop with the Los Angeles Dodgers and made himself into a Gold Glove second baseman with the help of infield coach Perry Hill in Miami. Now he’ll have to adjust to a whole new world view in center field. Mariners general manager Jerry Dipoto, the quintessential free thinker, saw the dynamic potential of a Gordon-Jean Segura pairing at the top of the order, and the Statcast numbers convinced him that Gordon had the raw materials to play outfield. Gordon’s sprint speed of 29.7 feet per second is fourth in MLB behind that of Minnesota’s Byron Buxton, Cincinnati’s Billy Hamilton and Cleveland’s Bradley Zimmer — all center fielders — and he has the capacity to outrun the occasional bad jump or read.

“He saw the doc and our trainers and took the rest of the night off.”

Joerger, 43, is in his second season as the Kings coach and is 47-84 with Sacramento. Turner said Joerger had been “feeling great” before the game.

“He’s a young coach in good health, a lot of energy and he exerts it during the game and in practice,” Turner said. “It’s just an incident that happened and, unfortunately it was when the lights were on.

Thunder center Steven Adams put it best with his reaction to Andre Roberson’s ugly injury.

“It’s s—. It’s real s—,” Adams said after the Thunder’s 121-108 win over the Pistons. “He’s a huge part of our team and why we win. It’s a huge blow to us, but we’re just gonna have to rely on some other players to step up.”lions_054

Russell Westbrook gives wandering spectator shove after Thunder loss

Moments after the Nuggets quashed the Thunder’s fourth-quarter comeback at the horn, OKC point guard Russell Westbrook came face to face with a Denver fan who somehow made his way onto the court without security stopping him.

The government needs to get out of our doctor’s offices and our pharmacies and quit attempting to practice medicine by lumping all persons into the same category.None of their other three safeties has proved up to the job, and they can do better than Keo and Pleasant.a 2015 summer interview with of .com, was asked about who he had already studied for the 2015 .their effort, the way that they pursued that play the way coach always talks about, really made that play.

The biggest concerns with Hill are that he has dealt with a number of injuries in the past, and he’s in the first year of a three-year contract worth $57 million. It’s a big commitment to a 31-year-old who is in the midst of one of the worst seasons of his career, although moving on from the Kings could be what he needs to return to last season’s form.

Hood’s talent has never come into question. He’s a silky smooth scorer who can get hot and fill up the points column on any given night. He hasn’t, however, progressed quite as much as expected over the last two seasons, due in large part to an unfortunate run of injuries.

By the ZiPS projections — and I agree with the computer on this one — two franchises stand at or near the brink of completing their rebuilds. Just as no analyst is perfect, no rebuilding team does a perfect job, but these teams have gotten themselves near relevance without making major blunders that derailed their long-term plans.

He had a breakout season in 2014, batting .327 with 20 homers, 97 RBI and 23 steals in 156 games. He was working on another good year in 2015 when he hurt his right shoulder diving for a ball in Minnesota.

The two-time All-Star needed two surgeries to fix his shoulder and played in just 11 games in 2016, missing Cleveland’s run to the World Series. He appeared to be back on track last year before he injured his ankle while chasing a fly ball to left field during a game on Aug. 8.

Brantley made a surprising return late last season and was selected for the playoff roster against New York, but went just 1 for 11 in the five-game series. Despite the string of injuries, Cleveland decided to pick up his $11.5 million option for 2018.lions_126

Lonzo Ball’s ‘ugly’ shot is starting to fall

Lonzo sinks back-to-back 3sLonzo Ball knocks down 3-pointers on consecutive possessions for the Lakers.

Ball has appeared to be very comfortable, both on and off the court, for some time now, and it is showing in his game, as he has knocked down three or more treys in five of his past seven games.

“I can shoot,” said Ball, who’ll look to continue his hot shooting as the Lakers face the Heat in Miami on Thursday night. “I just missed at the beginning of the year. I told you I was going to keep shooting, and now they are going in.”

“With the long list of so many great players that have come through this league, in the history of this league, for me to be the only [person] in a category, I think it’s pretty cool,” James said after the Cavaliers’ 129-123 win over the Brooklyn Nets on Tuesday. “It’s pretty cool. I take pride in my game. I’ve always taken pride in being a triple threat since I started playing basketball, and I never wanted to be labeled as a scorer.

“I always wanted to be labeled as just an all-around basketball player; and I get more gratification out of the assists more than anything, because to get my guys great looks or they’re knocking down shots, that means a lot to me.”

“I can’t wait to get out there and share my ideas.”

As part of the university’s Askwith Forums, Brown is scheduled to engage in a one-on-one discussion with Harvard Graduate School of Education professor Jal Mehta.

The HGSE said the discussion will touch on Brown’s basketball journey. But other topics will include institutionalized sport and education, inequality by design, the role sports play in society and why Brown thinks athletes can — and should — be ready to use their celebrity and prominence to speak up and advocate for change.

On the night before his visit, Brown wasn’t giving any hints as to what he might say.

“You’ll have to be there to see it,” Brown said.

This is Year 5 for Antetokounmpo. A player with Antetokounmpo’s devastating gifts should have begun to iron out his outside shot. But because the Greek Freak is such a devastating finisher, it’s masked his inability to shoot.49ers_182
