Jets to release injured WR Terrelle Pryor, could re-sign him
10/20/2018 2:26pm

The New York Jets are releasing injured wide receiver Terrelle Pryor on Saturday, a league source told ESPNs Adam Schefter. Pryor has a tear in his groin and is expected to miss about two weeks. The Jets are interested in bringing Pryor back when hes healthy, a source told Schefter, but other teams also are likely to be interested. The former Ohio State quarterback caught a touchdown pass in each of the Jets past two games, against the Broncos and Colts. He has 14 receptions for 235 yards on the season. Pryor had only 20 receptions for 240 yards and 1 touchdown in nine games for the Washington Redskins in 2017. He signed a one-year, $4.5 million deal, which included a $1 million signing bonus, with the Jets in March. On Thursday, Pryor expressed confidence in his ability to contribute. If I play this week -- hopefully, I do -- Ill come back and dominate and do what I gotta do, Pryor told ESPN. ... Im a playmaker. Throw me...

10/20/2018 2:30pm

The Miami Marlins are close to confirming the signings of highly rated Cuban prospects Victor Victor Mesa and his brother Victor Mesa Jr., according to multiple reports. As El Nuevo Herald first reported, citing a source, Victor Victor Mesa will receive a $4 million-plus signing bonus, while Victor Mesa Jr. gets a bonus close to $1 million. Both players are outfielders. The Marlins on Saturday announced a news conference for Monday morning, but the team provided no details other than CEO Derek Jeter and president of baseball operations Mike Hill would be present. The 22-year-old Victor Victor Mesa, the top international free agent, started playing in Cubas top league at 16. His 17-year-old brother is a switch-hitter who starred for Cubas 18U national team. Both left Cuba last spring to pursue major league careers. El Nuevo Herald also reported pitcher Sandy Gaston, who also worked out for scouts earlier this month, will likely sign with either ...

Cross Patton, son of OutKast star Big Boi, commits to Oregon as preferred walk-on
10/20/2018 1:00pm

The Oregon Ducks received a commitment Saturday from running back Cross Patton as a preferred walk-on. Normally that type of news wouldnt make too many headlines, but Patton is the son of OutKast rapper Big Boi and has received attention throughout the process. His father gained notoriety throughout the 90s and 2000s with hit songs, and now Patton has an opportunity to make a name for himself. A 5-foot-7 running back out of Woodward Academy in Atlanta, Georgia, Patton isnt the biggest prospect, but he is elusive, quick and has shown versatility. He chose to walk on for the Ducks over scholarship offers from others, including Butler, Columbia and Division II Seton Hill.

Report: Astros star Jose Altuve had knee surgery on Friday
10/20/2018 12:36pm

Houston Astros star second baseman Jose Altuve underwent surgery Friday on his injured right knee, according to MLB.com. Altuve is expected to be ready for spring training next year. Altuve served as Houstons designated hitter in the final three games of their five-game ALCS loss to the Boston Red Sox because of what had been described as a bruised knee. Astros manager AJ Hinch acknowledged Thursday before Game 5 that Altuve was playing on one leg and that the 2017 American League MVP would not have played if it was a regular-season contest. After the Astros season-ending 4-1 loss, Altuve said this was absolutely the worst pain hes ever played with. I feel really, really bad for not being on the field for my team, Altuve said. But one thing you can know is that I gave everything I had -- healthy, not healthy, that was all I have. Altuve, 28, batted .315 with 13 home runs and 61 RBIs in 137 games this season for the...
