Yanks add 2 more to injured list...Kershaw to make rehab start Thursday...Calipari extended
NEW YORK (AP) — The New York Yankees have added Giancarlo Stanton and Miguel Andujar (an-DOO’-hahr) to their injured list, leaving half the team’s starting lineup on the sidelines just three games into the season. Stanton could miss much of this month after straining his left biceps fouling off a pitch in the third inning of Sunday’s loss to the Baltimore Orioles. Andujar strained his right shoulder sliding headfirst into third base an inning later on a bases-loaded pickoff attempt.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw will make a minor league rehab start in Oklahoma City on Thursday, the next step in his return from shoulder inflammation. Kershaw had been set to start the Dodgers’ big league opener last week for a franchise-record ninth consecutive season. Those plans were scuttled after the left-hander’s shoulder bothered him throughout spring training.
LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky has agreed to a long-term contract with basketball coach John Calipari that will allow him to finish his career with the Wildcats. The 60-year-old Calipari tweeted last month that his “plan and desire” was to retire at the school. He is 305-71 in 10 seasons with Kentucky, winning the 2012 NCAA championship in advancing to the Final Four on three other occasions.
CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina freshman Nassir Little is entering the NBA draft after averaging 9.8 points and 4.6 rebounds as the team’s top reserve this season. Little came on late with a team-best 39 points through the first two tournament wins but was limited to 13 minutes due to illness in Friday’s Sweet 16 loss to Auburn. Little is projected as a first-round pick, although it is unclear if he has signed with an agent.
UNDATED (AP) — The Kansas City Chiefs have acquired edge rusher Emmanuel Ogbah from Cleveland for safety Eric Murray. The 25-year-old Ogbah defensive end was picked 32nd overall in the 2016 draft and registered 12½ sacks while starting 40 games over the past three seasons. Murray became expendable when the Chiefs signed free agent safety Tyrann Mathieu.
