(AP) - Kario Oquendo scored all eight of Georgia’s overtime points and the Bulldogs beat South Carolina 81-78 on Saturday, snapping a 12-game losing streak to the Gamecocks. Jacobi Wright hit a 3-pointer to give the Gamecocks (8-13, 1-7 SEC) a two-point lead in overtime before Oquendo answered with a transition layup and four free throws for a four-point lead, Georgia’s largest, with 2:25 remaining.
The Rays continued to solidify the long-term future of their formidable starting rotation on Wednesday signing left-hander Jeffrey Springs to a four-year, $31 million contract extension, which could be worth up to $65.75 million over five seasons through performance-related bonuses. He doesn't possess immense upside from a fantasy standpoint due to a rather pedestrian strikeout rate, but he's excellent from a run-prevention standpoint and will slot in as a borderline top-50 starting pitcher in drafts this spring.
Greinke, 39, was once one of the most dominant pitchers in the league, especially in that earlier stint in Kansas City. He’s now tossed over 3,000 innings with a 3.42 ERA over his career.
The Red Sox added some much-needed middle infield help Tuesday, acquiring shortstop Adalberto Mondesi and a player to be named later from the Royals in exchange for left-handed reliever Josh Taylor. Mondesi has fanned in 30.2% of his plate appearances against just a 4.4% walk rate, and he’s a career .244/.280/.408 hitter in the big leagues.
For Pope, Sunday’s game showed the Beavers what they can be. That included doing a better job of playing together and sharing the ball.
It’s been a quiet offseason for the Royals on the whole, but they’ve taken up a prominent position on the trade market in the past few days, shipping center fielder Michael A. Taylor to the division-rival Twins in exchange for relief prospects Evan Sisk and Steven Cruz, and flipping infielder Adalberto Mondesi to the Red Sox in exchange for reliever Josh Taylor the following day. Lopez is more of of a mid-range player in terms of remaining club control, as he’s arbitration-eligible through the 2025 season.
Mondesi will be a free agent after 2023. Dozier, a 31-year-old potentially signed through the 2025 season, has failed to make good on what appeared to be a breakout season in 2019.
The Boston Red Sox made a pair of notable transactions on Tuesday. First, they obtained veteran infielder Adalberto Mondesi in a trade with the Kansas City Royals that also included reliever Josh Taylor.
The Red Sox have acquired shortstop Adalberto Mondesi from the Kansas City Royals along with a player to be named later for left-handed pitcher Josh Taylor. Mondesi, 27, is coming back from a knee injury that limited him to just 15 games last season.
The Boston Red Sox are in desperate need of middle infield help, and they made a move on Tuesday to address that. Kansas City will get left-handed reliever Josh Taylor in the deal, while the Red Sox also get a player to be named later.
The Boston Red Sox traded for Adalberto Mondesi on Monday, acquiring the 27-year-old infielder from the Kansas City Royals in exchange for lefty reliever Josh Taylor, MLB.com reports. Mondesi is an infielder who has played just 50 games the last two ...
