Yanks star Judge ailing, uncertain for start of Bosox series

first_img First Published: 13th August, 2020 12:21 IST LIVE TV Associated Press Television News  Yankees star Aaron Judge was out of the lineup Wednesday night because of tightness in his lower body and it was uncertain whether the oft-injured slugger would return for the start of a weekend series against Boston.“I hope so but that’s, in a lot of ways, a long way from now, so let’s just kind of get through today,” manager Aaron Boone said before New York hosted Atlanta.“Hopefully this is something we’re out ahead of and will only be a couple of days,” he said.Judge began the day leading the majors with nine home runs and tied at the top with 20 RBIs for the AL East leaders.Clint Frazier, promoted this week from the team’s alternate training site when Giancarlo Stanton was put on the injured list with a strained hamstring, started in right field in place of Judge. The Yankees are off Thursday.Judge made an unusual exit during Tuesday night’s 9-6 win over Atlanta. He homered in the fifth inning and was pulled for pinch hitter Mike Tauchman in the sixth with the Yankees ahead 8-3. Judge briefly remained in the dugout, watching Tauchman hit from the top rail, then returned to the clubhouse.Boone said Wednesday that Judge felt some “wear and tear” during last weekend’s series on the artificial turf at Tampa Bay.“Essentially what’s going on with Aaron is I made a quick decision in the game just based on how I felt he was moving around,” Boone said.“He’s in getting treatment now. He wanted to play,” he said. “He’s just dealing with some lower body tightness that we’re hoping to get out ahead of and hopefully prevent an injury moving forward.”The 28-year-old All-Star missed some time during July’s training camp because of a stiff neck.Judge hit 52 home runs in 2017 and was the AL Rookie of the Year. He hit 27 homers in each of the last two seasons, both of them interrupted by injuries — he broke his right wrist on a hit by pitch in 2018 and went on the injured list for two months last year with a left oblique strain.Judge was diagnosed with a broken rib in March. Boone said last weekend’s series took its toll on the 6-foot-7 outfielder.“It’s kind of all over the lower body, just where he’s kind of dealing with some rigors. So, you know, the hips down into the hamstring and calves,” Boone said. “I think it’s a result of probably the four-game pounding in three days down in Tampa.”Boone said Judge looked fine going into Tuesday night’s game at Yankee Stadium, but later “just seeing him move around a little bit cautiously, I felt like it was best to get him out of there.”“It kind of goes back to the 60-game season and you’ve heard me talk a lot about the importance of building these guys up and making sure that we take care of them in some degree based on a three-week summer training right into the grind,” he said.

Knicks trade rumors: Some within organization ‘uncomfortable’ with dealing major assets for Anthony Davis

first_img NBA Draft 2019: RJ Barrett wants Knicks to pick him at No. 3, won’t work out for any other team The six-time All-Star told the Pelicans in late January he did not plan to re-sign when he could opt out of his contract after 2019-20 and asked the team to move him.New Orleans executive vice president David Griffin has begun listening to offers for Davis and is asking for an “All-Star player, a young player with All-Star potential and two first-round picks” in exchange for him, according to an earlier report from ESPN. The team also could be open to a three-team deal. Related News Kawhi Leonard free agency rumors: Knicks expected to ‘push hard’ to sign star Davis averaged 25.9 points and 12 rebounds in 56 games last season.The Knicks, meanwhile, are hoping to have a busy offseason as they’re expected to pursue multiple stars. They also hold the No. 3 pick in the upcoming draft. Anthony Davis trade rumors: Pelicans want All-Star, young player, 2 picks in exchange for star The Knicks may not want to part with their top talent in a deal for Anthony Davis.Some within the New York organization are “uncomfortable with the idea of trading away significant assets for” the 26-year-old Pelicans star, according to a report from SNY, which cites unidentified league sources. The Knicks and Lakers are Davis’ “two desired long-term destinations,” according to The Athletic, while the Clippers and Nets have also inquired about a potential deal.The Pelicans finished 2018-19 with a 33-49 record and missed the playoffs for the third time in four seasons. But, they surprisingly jumped up in the lottery and will have the No. 1 pick in the 2019 draft, which is widely expected to be former Duke star Zion Williamson.Griffin, who was hired in mid-April, believes the team may be able to convince Davis to re-evaluate his decision not to ink an extension.”There are a lot reasons for him to believe that this will be different,” Griffin told NBA TV in May. “What it starts with is just us doing what we say we’re going to do, one step at a time. Over time, I think he’s going to see there is a trust level that he should have in us.”I believe strongly he has always wanted to be part of the market, but, understandably, the kid wants to win.”last_img read more

Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires

first_img Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires While much of the attention surrounding the Arizona Cardinals and their first-round pick has revolved around the quarterback position, there are other areas of the team they may seek to address with the 13th overall selection.Like, perhaps, linebacker.One of the best linebackers in the draft is Alabama’s Reuben Foster, and most mocks have him being available for the Cardinals — if they want him.Whether they do (or will) is not yet know, what is confirmed is they have at least enough interest to want to take a closer look at the prospect.

He has a #AZCardinals visit today, too.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) April 3, 2017Last season, Foster led Alabama with 115 tackles — 13 of which were for losses — while adding five sacks. The 6-foot, 229-pound linebacker had rotator cuff surgery in February, from which he is still recovering.A unanimous first-team All-American and All-SEC pick in 2016, Foster won the Butkus Award and was a finalist for the Bednarik Award. He would not necessarily fill a pressing need for the Cardinals, but last week when he was asked about adding a young inside linebacker, head coach Bruce Arians said he would love to find a player who could learn under Karlos Dansby.Of course, Arians also said he would like to find a young player to learn behind safety Antoine Bethea and receiver Larry Fitzgerald as well as QB Carson Palmer, so the team is not likely to tab Foster just because he would have time to learn now while preparing for the future.
