The Reds sent minor league catcher Joe Hudson to the Angels for cash.
The 27-year-old Hudson has never played in the majors. He batted .235 with no homers and three RBIs in 16 games for Triple-A Louisville this season.
ST. LOUIS — Max Fried was so good that he didn’t even need all the support Nick Markakis and the Braves provided for his first win of the season.
Markakis hit a grand slam, Fried took a shutout into the seventh inning and Atlanta beat the St. Louis Cardinals 11-4 on Saturday night.
You’ve got to give all the credit to Max, Markakis said. He went out and pitched one of the better games I’ve seen. For him, two runs early on was enough for him. It was nice to get some runs and give him a nice cushion there.
One would think that Young has learned to watch what he says on camera years ago.
Ayton declared himself the No. 1 pick after his workout with the Suns, and all indications are that Phoenix will choose him first. The Suns have looked at other candidates for this spot, and there is always a chance (however slim) that the top pick could be moved. Not likely, though.
Ayton has a lot riding on going first because he has only worked out for the Suns, and a source noted that he will not work out for any other team before the draft.
This was Year 5 of McDonough’s time with the Suns. After the team won 48 games in his first season, he has overseen the worst four-year stretch in franchise history since, with a .326 winning percentage and an average of just 26.8 wins per year.
Does Reese believe his job is in jeopardy?
That’s up to the owners of the New York Giants, he said. You can ask them what they like. I just know that I come to work every day, and I know people come in here and work their behinds off every day, and so that is a question you should ask owners.
We’ve had four weeks in a row where we’ve had almost 300 yards consecutively of total offense. … We put points up against Philadelphia. We had a couple of bad things happen. I’m not sure you can directly point those at the quarterback.”
Rivera said he’d like to believe fluke things have happened the past two weeks that have made Newton and the offense look worse than they have been.
He has thrown five interceptions against one touchdown over the past two games, after throwing six TD passes and one pick the previous two weeks in wins against the New England Patriots and Detroit Lions.
The Seahawks are still known for having the defensive side of the equation locked down. Wilson is making sure Seattle has the other side this season, too.
So you want to be a broadcaster, right? he joked during the broadcast. Collinsworth said it looked like they were broadcasting from a blimp.
Despite some positive reaction from viewers, NBC producer Fred Gaudelli thinks NFL TV networks will stick with the high, sideline camera views that have been used for decades.
We’ve long talked about using Skycam more in the live play-by-play coverage of the game, Gaudelli told Sporting News. However, what has stopped us is some of the system’s limitations.
