Braves reach deal for new spring training facility in Sarasota

The Braves may soon have a new spring training home.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported Monday that the team has reached an agreement on key issues with Sarasota County, Fla., to build a new facility. It could be ready by 2019.

Profoundly important in Jameis’ upbringing, she was unable to travel when her grandson was being taken first overall in the 2015 NFL Draft. Instead of walking across the big stage with all the lights, Winston stayed home to watch with his beloved grandmother.

Her Type 2 diabetes didn’t allow her to travel, which is why Winston wanted to be selected by a team that played near Alabama. The NFC South was the best bet. Then, Myrtle would be just 2 1/2 hours from Atlanta and less than five from New Orleans.

I have a true passion for her, Winston said. I have a true passion for those kids that battle a disease that we haven’t found a cure for yet.

One of Jameis, and likely Myrtle’s, fondest recent memories was when Myrtle got to witness live Jameis’ first NFL win Week 2 of the 2015 NFL season inside the Superdome in New Orleans.

My grandma never came to my college games, so that was amazing to see her out there. To see her out there on the sideline before the game, I was pumped up, Winston said.

Mike Napoli reportedly reaches deal for third stint with Rangers

The Texas Rangers apparently will have a familiar face at first base this season.

Welcome back to Arlington, Mike Napoli.

Yes, the 35-year-old slugger tentatively has reached a one-year deal with the Rangers, according to multiple reports. It would be Napoli’s third stint with Texas. He hit 59 home runs and had an OPS of .929 in 256 games in 2011-12 and ’15.

According to multiple reports, he will undergo further testing, including, the New York Times reported, seeing Dr. Robert W. Thompson, the St. Louis specialist who is considered the leading expert on thoracic outlet syndrome. He performed thoracic outlet surgery on fellow Met Matt Harvey last year.

The New York Post noted that while the team didn’t offer any details about a timetable or the severity of or treatment for the clot, then-Mets pitcher David Cone had an arterial blood clot near his armpit in 1996 and was sidelined for four months.

Familia, who recorded 94 saves in 2015-16, has three this season with a 3.86 ERA in 11 appearances. Addison Reed leads the 16-17 Mets in saves this season with four.

Familia’s problem is the latest in a string of setbacks for a Mets pitching staff that has been decimated by injuries and other assorted ailments and missteps.

he was under the influence of drugs and alcohol.

Dwight Gooden, an integral part of the New York Mets’ 1986 World Series championship, missed the team’s ticker-tape parade that year because he was under the influence of drugs and alcohol.

But Doc Gooden finally got his day in the sun Friday, as New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio gave him a key to the city in a celebration at City Hall Plaza.

Among those on hand to honor Gooden were former teammates Darryl Strawberry, Jesse Orosco and Bobby Ojeda.

He showed me Warner’s jersey with his signature and told me a story about how Warner was surprised that he was in possession of the item, Palafox told the AP. He said he planned to gather interest from Warner to sell him the jersey for $8,000.

Ortega, who has received media credentials for Super Bowls since at least 2005, allegedly took Brady’s Super Bowl 49 jersey as well, not to mention Von Miller’s helmet and cleats from Super Bowl 50. Those items were recovered on Monday.

We can only assume Ortega came into possession of the Super Bowl memorabilia with the same cool demeanor with which he (allegedly) took Brady’s Super Bowl 51 jersey.

Today’s a day I never thought would happen, Gooden said. It’s been a long journey, and I am grateful to be here.

Orioles’ Caleb Joseph has a zero-RBI season, but gets a raise anyway

Sometimes, you just have to shoot your shot.

That’s what Orioles catcher Caleb Joseph did when he filed for $1 million in arbitration in the offseason following a season in which the backstop failed to record a single RBI in 141 plate appearnces, breaking an MLB record previously held by pitcher Wilbur Wood.

The good news for Joseph is that it won’t be very hard to earn his raise — he has a low bar to clear in 2017.

The woman is playing to paradegoers and motions at her breasts — then points to Zeke. Next thing you know, he reaches over and pulls her top down, exposing her bare breast. She scrambles to cover up.

We spoke with Elliott’s rep who told us the woman wasn’t upset and actually hung out with Zeke and a group of friends after the parade ended.”

This is the second time Elliott has had a headline-grabbing incident involving a woman.

The 21-year-old was cleared by police of assaulting his ex-girlfriend in Cheap Authentic Jerseys From China July, but the NFL still hasn’t come to a conclusion in its own investigation as to whether he violated the league’s personal conduct policy.

Elliott has denied the accusations.

If this sounds like one of those tabloid stories about poor Central American villagers who worship a tortilla they say bears (pun not intended) the image of Jesus, understand that some other seemingly rational Cubs fans have examined those dirt images and agree with DePorter.

Derek Jeter gives epic salute to New York in moving video

Derek Jeter has always had a special relationship with New York sports fans.

The young shortstop from Kalamazoo, Mich., grew up in front of their eyes, winning World Series championships and becoming maybe the last of the all-time Yankees greats after Babe Ruth, Joe DiMaggio and Mickey Mantle.

Thank you, New York, for asking a lot of me. For challenging me. For giving this kid a place to grow up. I wasn’t born a New Yorker — you asked me to earn it. I wasn’t born a Yankee, but you made me into one.

Everyone comes to this city with dreams of being No. 1. You showed me that being No. 2 was more than enough.

Today I’m no longer that kid. I’ve hung up my uniform, and I know this much for a fact: I wouldn’t be the person I am today without you. Because the truth is, no matter where you go in the world, when a place feels like home, as New York does to me, you never really leave.

“He fired five shots, five rounds,’’ Bradley said, who added he next heard “three or four clicks” as Hernandez kept pulling the trigger on what authorities allege was a six shot revolver.

“After the clicks, [Hernandez said] “C’mon let’s go!” Bradley recalled.

Bradley said he saw one or two men run away from the BMW as he and Basketball Jerseys Custom Hernandez drove away, and that they made their way onto the Massachusetts Turnpike. During the ride, Hernandez turned towards Bradley and asked him, “Did I see that?”

Braves acquire Brandon Phillips from Reds

Brandon Phillips is officially moving on from Cincinnati.

In an anticipated move, the Reds have agreed to a trade that will send their All-Star second baseman to the Braves.

As he went on free-agent visits, teams were made aware of his condition and the Vikings said they knew before signing Murray that he would require surgery.

A sixth-round pick by the Raiders in 2013, the former UCF running back was a Pro Bowler in 2015. Murray missed his rookie season following a training camp injury. He ran for 424 yards and two touchdowns in 2014 before rushing for 1,066 yards and six scores in 2015. Murray, 27, had just 788 yards in 14 games last season, but found the end zone 12 times.

He inked a three-year deal worth $15 million with the Vikings, who hope he can be a viable replacement for Adrian Peterson.

The crash set off a chain-reaction collision that damaged three other vehicles. One of the vehicles held a group of young Twins farmhands identified by the Star Tribune as catcher Ben Rortvedt, pitcher Austin Tribby, outfielder Caleb Hamilton and infielder Dane Hutcheon.

Fenway [is] a place where I feel more comfortable than any other place, more than my own house. Honestly, I could take a nap in centerfield and feel that I am right at home, so it shocks me a great deal that Adam Jones was called something like that at my field.

Yordano Ventura’s toxicology report won’t be made public

The results from the toxicology report on the late Yordano Ventura will not be made public, an official in the Dominican Republic told the Kansas City Star on Thursday.

Clark continued, The one piece of good news is that the disease seems to be progressing more slowly than in some patients. While I’m still trying to wrap my head around the challenge I will face with this disease over the coming years, the only thing I know is that I’m going to fight like hell and live every day to the fullest.

Clark played in San Francisco for nine seasons, amassing 506 catches for 6,750 yards and 48 touchdowns. He was part of the 49ers’ Super Bowl-winning teams in 1981-82 and 1984-85 and is a two-time Pro Bowler.

Braves’ Freddie Freeman calls Miller Park ‘bad-lit Little League field’

Freddie Freeman isn’t particularly fond of Miller Park.

The Braves first baseman criticized the Brewers’ ballpark Saturday before the team’s 11-3 win at Milwaukee, citing lighting problems across the field that hinder his vision.

“I think it’s a bad-lit Little League field,” Freeman said, via the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “I can’t see anything here.”

Freeman went on to describe another distortion due to fireworks set off at the stadium before the Brewer first inning, adding he’s relieved the series is almost over.

I feel like Little League fields are lit better than this. Obviously they have no problem because their guys are hitting. I guess you get used to it. Our lights at SunTrust [Park] are awesome. Turner Field was a little dark.”

Despite his complaints, Freeman has hit .391 with three home runs and six RBIs dating back just over two seasons in Milwaukee.

Diamondbacks’ Shelby Miller to have MRI exam on forearm

Diamondbacks starting pitcher Shelby Miller is scheduled to have a precautionary MRI exam Monday after exiting early from Sunday’s game against the Dodgers, the team announced.

Miller (2-2) left his team’s eventual 6-2 loss in the fifth inning because of right forearm tightness. He held the Dodgers scoreless through four innings but was responsible for three runs in the fifth, in which he didn’t retire a batter.

He’ll do everything mentally, Arians said, via the team’s website. He tosses some soft ones around. He doesn’t need to be out there right now.

To give Palmer some time to rest, the Cardinals have four other quarterbacks on their roster this offseason. The majority of the work will likely go to veterans Drew Stanton and Blaine Gabbert, while fifth-year quarterback Zac Dysert and undrafted rookie Trevor Knight handle the back-up work.

We’ve got four arms for both fields because we’re always going to have our dual practices, Arians added.

Palmer had mulled retirement before deciding to commit to his 15th NFL season and fifth with the Cardinals. The 37-year-old, who is signed with the Cardinals through the 2018 season, set a personal high for pass attempts with 597 last year while completing 364 for 4,233 yards and 26 touchdowns with 14 interceptions.

After the game, he downplayed the severity of the problem.

Rangers’ Adrian Beltre (strained calf) unsure about WBC availability

Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre has a strained left calf that might prevent him from playing for the Dominican Republic in the World Baseball Classic, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported.

Beltre, who arrived at Rangers camp Friday in Arizona, said he sustained the injury Tuesday while working out at home, and an MRI exam confirmed the strain he described as slightly worse than a grade 1 strain, the least severe.

The Dominican Republic opens WBC play March 9 in Miami.

“I’m going to go on how I’m healing and I’m going to go on how I feel,” said Beltre, 37. “Right now, I’m not going to say I’m not going to play. I can’t say it yet.”

Even if he is forced to miss the tournament’s first round, Beltre said he told Moises Alou, GM of the Dominican team, that he would try to play in the second round the next week in San Diego.

Still, Beltre said he realizes that being ready for the MLB season is most important.

He’s averaging $15 million a season as a stopgap unproven starter. That’s Cheap High Quality NFL Jerseys insane, especially when the Bears were so adamant about cutting bait on Jay Cutler and his hefty salary. It will get worse when Chicago drafts a potential franchise QB, meaning it’s not a given, even at that price, that Glennon will be without any competition in the short term. It will be hard to top this whopper of an awful move, especially when spending this money on a need at cornerback would have been 10 times better.
