Right-hander is set to make his first rehab appearance for Triple-A Gwinnett on Friday night ().

Beachy was originally scheduled for his first rehab outing last Sunday, but the game was postponed duexis Claude-Maurice from Lorient.The Geordies join Arsenal, West Ham and Sevilla in the hunt for the Ligue 2 man, says the Arsenal-Alexis-Claude-Maurice-Lorient” target=”_blank”>Daily Star.Claude-Maurice scored 14 goals in 16 Ligue 2 appearances last to rain. Since he’s on a throwing program, he threw a three-inning simulated game Sunday and is now ready to take the hill.

Beachy, 26, was rounding into one of the better pitchers in the bigs last season before tearing his ulnar-collateral ligament and needing Tommy John surgery. He was 5-5 with a 2.00 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 68 strikeouts in 81 innings. He left his June 16 start with the injury, which ended his season.

Expect Beachy to make around two to four rehab starts in Triple-A and return around mid-June. When he does, it’s unclear what the Braves will do with their rotation. Barring injury, the Braves have a solid five-man rotation of , , , and .

For most pitchers coming back from a long layoff, fastball velocity is of the utmost importance to prove that they are fully recovered from their issues. For starter , making his first start Tuesday against the since last July, it t off to the perfect start in their Premier League opener against Chelsea on Sunday.The two rivals will meet at Old Trafford in a tantalising contest to kick-off the gue’s coronavirus suspension “isn’t ideal”.Dyche was due to take his side, unbeaten in their last seven in the Premier League, to Manchester City on Saturday.”I know where football is in my life, let alone the grand scheme of life,” said the Clarets new season.And Mata would love for United to collect all three points.”It would be twas not even a concern.

“That’s not a big deal to me,” “As long as I get outs, it works. I watched Jamie Moyer forever get outs at 81 mph. Velocity is nothing. I felt great. It sucks I couldn’t keep going.”

It was easy for Garza to say that after averaging a healthy 93.4 miles per hour with his fastball, while not allowing a hit on either his four or two-seam offerings. He threw just 81 pitches in the game, and Garza obviously hopes the team will take the reigns off moving forward.

“You think they’re going to take me out without a fight?” Garza said. “The competitive partalah was delighted to score in their 2-1 win over Bournemouth.Salah’s goal took his total to 70 in 100 top-flight appearances for the club and extended his rich vein of scoring form versus the Cherries, too – the Egyptian has now netted eight times of me doesn’t want to leave what I started.”

Garza held the Pirates to just one hit in five innings of work.

NBA fines Clippers $250,000 for violating anti-circumvention rules


So it turns out, the Los Angeles Clippers’ handling of the DeAndre Jordan offseason circus — you know, when he verbally committed to signing with the Dallas Mavericks only to go back on his word and re-sign with the Clips — wasn’t exactly on the up and up. The NBA announced on Tuesday they have fined the Clippers’ organization $250,000 for violating the anti-circumvention rules.

According to the , part of the presentation the Clippers made to Jordan on July 2 involved a third-party endorsement opportunity for the center, which is not something they’re allowed to offer. It was deemed that the potential opportunity did not anded three matches to save his job.The Everton-job.html”>Daily Star says Silva has been told he has the next three matches to save his job on Merseyside.The Portuguese manager has endured a nightmare start to the season with the Toffees, taking justswing the decision for Jordan to return to the Clippers (a four-year, $87 million contract probably had more to do with that), so it doesn’t affect the transaction between both parties. It will just cost the Clippers a quarter of a million dollars. From the NBA:

The NBA announced today that it has fined the Los Angeles Clippers $250,000 for violating NBA rules prohibiting teams from offering players unauthorized business or investment opportunities.

The violation involved a presentation made by the Clippers to free agent DeAndre Jordan on July 2 that improperly included a potential third-party endorsement opportunity for the player.  While the NBA’s investigation ultimately concluded that the presentation of this opportunity had no impact on Jordan’s decision to re-sign with the Clippers, the team’s conduct nevertheless violated the league’s anti-circumvention rules.

The NBA’s anti-circumvention rules prohibit teams from, among other things, providing or arranging for others to provide any form of compensation to a player unless such compensation is included in a player contract or otherwise expressuro2020 qualifiers against Kosovo and Bulgaria.The 21-year-old will return to United to receive treatment for a back injury.It comes as a blow to the young fullback after he was primed to get his first taste of senior international football.”We’re rely permitted under the CBA.

The reason this rule is in place because you don’t want connected business partners trying ar was due to his knee.Fekir, who joined Real Betis this summer, was on his way to Anfield in the summer of 2018 before the deal fell through at the 11th hour.Liverpool pulled the plug due to a long-standing knee problem but Fekir denies this versionto sweeten the pot and circumvent the salary cap situations. For example, if you had the Knicks offering a four-year, $20 million deal to a free agent but saying there was an opportunity for Cablevision or another connected company to pay them an endorsement or business opportunity worth $100 million, that would obviously benefit the cap situation of the team while still providing a lot of money to the player, helping them choose that franchise.

This is an important rule, but it wasn’t such an extreme violation that it endangered the agreement between Jordan and Clippers after the league reviewed it.

Varejao figures to hold down a consistent role as the first or second big man off the bench, and his minutes load may ultimately be determined by how the Tristan Thompson situation shakes out.
