It will be the club’s first event to be shown on TV.RAYS-BIVENS BOSTON (AP) — New Red Sox outfielder Alex Verdugo said on Monday that he is fully healthy and he will be ready for the season — if there is one.Verdugo has used the delay caused by the coronavirus pandemic to rehab a stress fracture in his spine he already had when Boston acquired him from the Dodgers in the deal that sent Mookie Betts to Los Angeles on the eve of spring training. At the time, the Red Sox said he was not expected to break camp with the rest of the ballclub; Verdugo had said he may be ready “slightly after” opening day.Verdugo said he remained active at home after the Red Sox complex in Fort Myers, Florida, was shut down.

Because of social distancing mandates, the only other player he has seen there is pitcher Chris Sale.COLLEGE BASKETBALL-LOUISVILLENCAA accuses Louisville basketball of recruiting violations — The Dallas Cowboys have made room for new backup quarterback Andy Dalton by waiving the player who sat behind Dak Prescott for most of the past three seasons.

Dalton, a former Cincinnati starter, is guaranteed at least $3 million in his one-year contract.— Former third-round pick Nazair Jones was one of four players waived by the Seattle Seahawks as the team reached its 90-man roster limit.

Sumner County judge refuses to reduce bond for Provencio, Reedy; cases continued to May 14

first_imgby Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — Sumner County District Judge Scott McQuin denied reducing the bond of Nick Reedy and Sylvester Provencio, both of Caldwell, at their first court appearance hearing Thursday afternoon in Wellington.Nick ReedySylvester ProvencioReedy, 33, and Provencio, 21 are accused of assaulting Gregory Schneider, 53 and Bryan Nispel, 55 of Caldwell on April 22, east of Caldwell. They both face three felony charges including aggravated battery, aggravated robbery and burglary of a vehicle.Provencio and Reedy are currently in Sumner County jail on a $100,000 bond. McQuin denied both men’s request to reduce bond from $100,000 to $50,000 “due to the serious nature of the crime.”McQuin also issued a continuation of the hearing for May 14, at 1:30 p.m.Both Reedy and Provencio appeared in court separately before the judge. They were wearing shackles and prison attire and were escorted in amongst other Sumner County jail occupants, who had court proceedings that day.Reedy was the first of the two suspects to face the judge. Defense attorney Evan Watson, who was hired to represent Reedy, asked to have the bond cut in half for his client in hopes he could make bail so he could help his dad with his home repair business. Watson requested to the judge in order to do so, Reedy should be required to wear an ankle bracelet to track his whereabouts, submit to a drug/alcohol test, and stay in constant contact with his probation officer. Part of the stipulation of the bond is he is not to have any contact with Schneider or Nispel.McQuin was not having any part of it, and kept the bond as is.Later in the day, Provencio faced the judge. Unlike Reedy, Provencio did not have an attorney present.McQuin asked if he wanted a court appointed attorney or hire one himself. Provencio said he is in the process of hiring an attorney, but had not been able to do so. On Friday, his mother, Becky Gonzalez said he has hired Jess Hain, an attorney in Wichita.He then addressed the judge personally and asked to reduce bond from $100,000 to $50,000, so he can help a friend while saving money for attorney fees. Again, McQuin denied his request.Reedy and Provencio are accused of at least three felony and three misdemeanor charges stemming from an alleged assault four miles east of Caldwell of two local men. According to the court complaint affidavit, Schneider and Nispel stopped to assist Reedy and Provencio, who had a white pickup stuck in the mud slightly after midnight.Eventually, a fight took place which eventually led to the two suspects allegedly stealing Schneider’s Cadillac and a wallet inside (see details of the alleged crime here.) Both men suffered injuries from the alleged assault. Schneider suffered from a concussion, ruptured ear drum, severe head and neck trauma, cracked teeth, two broken ribs, bruises over much of his body, cuts and abrasions which required stitches and staples.last_img read more

Nelson rookie McCarthy lifts Nelson to 5-5 tie against Castlegar on KIJHL opening night

first_imgColton McCarthy’s second goal of the game in the final minute of regulation time lifted the Nelson Leafs to a 5-5 Kootenay International Junior Hockey League overtime tie against the Castlegar Rebels Friday night at the NDCC Arena.The goal by the 16-year-old rookie from Salmon Arm came with 11 ticks left on the clock as Nelson desperately tried to salvage at least a single point on a night the Heritage City franchise honoured a Leaf hero from the past, former goalie Gus Adams.Adams, who toiled with the Nelson Senior Maple Leafs in the days of the Western International Hockey League, recently passed away at his North Shore home. Nelson squandered a 3-1 lead in the second period as the Rebels stormed back to take a 5-4 lead late in the third frame.Aaron Dunlap, Carsen Willans and Matt MacDonald, with his first goal as a junior, also scored for the Leafs.Bryan Lubin, with a pair, Stuart Walton, Peter Mingus and Braydon Horcoff replied for the Rebels.Castlegar outshot Nelson 34-25, including a wide 12-1 margin in the third as the Sunflower City put the foot on the gas pedal looking for goals.Connor Beachamp, for the Rebels, and Patrick Defoe, for Nelson, tended goal for both teams.The teams play the return engagement Saturday at the Castlegar Complex.

Complete Russian ban from Rio Olympics “not impossible” if allegations proven

first_imgPound, who led the WADA Independent Commission investigation which published claims of systemic doping in the Russian athletics team last November, was speaking as the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) decided to maintain its ban on athletes from the world’s largest nation from competing in any of its competitions.Only those who are based outside Russia, so can prove they have been operating in an effective drug testing system, will be free to apply to compete as independent athletes at Rio 2016.This stance has already been praised by the IOC, who said International Federations are in control of who is eligible to compete in their respective sports ahead of a Stakeholders Summit in Lausanne on Tuesday (June 21) at which more discussions are expected.Russia could also be stripped of two Olympic quota places at an International Weightlifting Federation in Tblisi this week due to have violated rules on doping failures within the qualifying period.Concerns are also being raised about Russian doping in a multitude of other sports following a damning WADA report criticising the improvements made this year.While no action is due to be taken until there is further proof, Pound believes the results of a WADA investigation into doping at Sochi 2014 could have wider consequences.“Kicking the entire Russia team out of the Rio Games would be the nuclear option, but it’s not impossible,” the Canadian was reported as saying in the Sunday Times.Former Moscow Laboratory director Grigory Rodchenkov claimed that up to 15 Russian medal winners were implicated in a clandestine operation in which doping samples were switched for clean ones.An investigation chaired by Pound’s fellow countryman Richard McLaren is due to report its findings by June 15.If he confirms Rodchenkov’s claims, it would raise grave concerns over whether any Russian-based athletes could be considered “clean”.A blanket ban remains unlikely, however, and would provoke fury in Russia, where the IAAF decision has been fiercely criticised.Russian Sports Minister Vitaly Mutko has called today for the IAAF to be “disbanded” and appeared to blame them for Russian’s doping problems.”In essence, by shifting the responsibility to the ARAF, they have exonerated themselves from the responsibility,” Mutko told R-Sport.”The IAAF should be disbanded.” But Pound has little sympathy and believes that Russia has not done enough to remedy problems.“Back in November, I said that if they put their shoulder to the wheel and responded to their issues they could easily have enough time to sort everything out in time for Rio,” he said.“But instead they played the role of victims, claiming there was a plot against them for too long.“You only need to watch the latest ARD [German television] programme to see banned coaches are still coaching.”It seems in Russia it’s been no more than moving a few artists around.“The track and field athletes might feel hard done by getting banned in Rio.”It’s a bit like when you get stopped for speeding on the freeway by the police and you say ‘why me? everyone else was doing it’.”The answer is that’s what we’re dealing with right now and we can worry about the others later.”last_img read more
