Trouble in the Reds outfield, the Blue Jays rotation could have a new look, an interesting catcher option in Colorado and injuries to Davis, Kipnis, Cain and more. INJURIES - Reds RF Jay Bruce is facing knee surgery for a torn meniscus and it could cost him a month of playing time. Chris Heisey, who has shown some pop (43 home runs, .736 OPS in 1218 career plate appearances) takes over in right for the Reds. - The Reds are also missing LHP Tony Cingrani, who has shoulder tendinitis, but Cincinnati can get away with a four-man rotation for the time being. - A torn tendon in his right hand leaves RHP Brandon Morrow on the 60-day DL, giving J.A. Happ a chance to return to the rotation. Happ has been rocked in three relief appearances this year, so it may not be long before Marcus Stroman gets his turn. Stroman, a 2012 first-round pick, has been recalled from Triple-A Buffalo, where he was 2-2 with a 1.69 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 36 strikeouts in 26 2/3 innings. Stroman starts in the bullpen but figures to be next in line for a rotation opening. - With 1B Chris Davis on the DL due to a strained oblique, Steve Pearce is getting regular playing time for the Orioles. Pearce has done little (.222 AVG, .556 OPS) in 27 plate appearances this year, but since joining the Orioles in 2012, he has seven home runs, 29 RBI, a .253 average and .748 OPS in 248 plate appearances. - A strained hamstring has put White Sox CF Adam Eaton on the DL, giving Jordan Danks a shot at some regular playign time. In 300 career plate appearances, Danks is hitting .207 with a .606 OPS and a dozen stolen bases, so he hasnt clicked in the bigs yet, but had a respectable .772 OPS in four seasons (1566 plate appearances) at Triple-A. - Indians 2B Jason Kipnis is out with a strained oblique, and the Tribe has turned to 21-year-old Jose Ramirez. Ramirez doesnt have any power to speak of, but hit .308 with a .765 OPS and 75 stolen bases, in 1172 minor-league plate appearances. - Need a catcher? While Rockies C Wilin Rosario deals with a viral infection, consider Jordan Pacheco, who is the primary backup in Colorado. Pacheco had played primarily first and third base with the rockies, but, prior to this season, had seen action at catcher in 22 of 213 career games. This year, Pacheco has caught in 10 games, and is hitting .278 with a .769 OPS. He hasnt hit enough to have value as a corner infielder, but as a catcher? Thats a different story. - Tigers RHP Anibal Sanchez is on the DL due to a laceration on his finger, giving LHP Robbie Ray (3-2, 1.53 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, 21 K, 29 1/3 IP at Triple-A) a turn in the Detroit rotation. Ray was acquired from Washington as part of the Doug Fister trade in the offseason. - A run-in with a kitchen knife has sent Giants RHP Matt Cain to the DL, opening up a spot in the rotation for Yusmerio Petit, the 29-year-old who has a 3.31 ERA in 73 1/3 innings with the Giants since 2012. - Angels 3B David Freese suffered a broken finger on the weekend, leaving the hot corner in the hands of Ian Stewart, the one-time top prospect who has power (hit 25 HR in 2009), but is hitting .186 with seven home runs in 396 plate appearances since the start of 2011. - Twins RHP Mike Pelfrey is sidelined with a groin problem, giving Samuel Deduno a chance to return to the starting rotation. Dedunos strikeout rate has improved, working out of the bullpen this year, though hes also giving up more base-runners than he did last season, when he was 8-8 with a 3.83 ERA and 1.35 WHIP in 18 starts for the Twins. GOOD ADDS (Available in at least 40% of TSN leagues) Jhonny Peralta, SS, St. Louis - 7 HR, 15 RBI, .222 AVG, 13 R, 108 AB (Available: 48.6%) Omar Infante, 2B, Kansas City - 2 HR, 19 RBI, .282 AVG, 13 R, 110 AB (Available: 49.5%) Todd Frazier, 3B, Cincinnati - 5 HR, 18 RBI, .269 AVG, 17 R, 3 SB, 97 AB (Available: 40.6%) Chris Young, CF, N.Y. Mets - 2 HR, 9 RBI, .273 AVG, 10 R, 3 SB, 55 AB (Available: 95.8%) Juan Francisco, 1B, 3B, Toronto - 3 HR, 6 RBI, .277 AVG, 8 R, 47 AB (Available: 98.7%) Corey Kluber, RHP, Cleveland - 2-3, 3.60 ERA, 1.36 WHIP, 48 K, 45 IP (Available: 82.4%) Travis Wood, LHP, Chicago Cubs - 2-3, 3.35 ERA, 1.25 WHIP, 37 K, 37 2/3 IP (Available: 86.1%) Jonathon Niese, LHP, N.Y. Mets - 2-2, 2.20 ERA, 1.04 WHIP, 24 K, 32 2/3 IP (Available: 77.0%) CLOSER NOTES - Sergio Santos has lost the Blue Jays closer gig after blowing back-to-back save appearances. Aaron Loup is the short-term option there, while Casey Janssen is due back from injury soon. - After being removed from the closers role, Angels RHP Ernesto Frieri may be about to reclaim the job from sidearmer Joe Smith. Frieri ha worked four perfect relief outings since he was bumped from the job. - The lonely Houston Astros closer job is being split, by Anthony Bass and Chad Qualls. As if one couldnt handle all those opportunities. - Oaklands Jim Johnson has pitched 10 1/3 IP since he was knocked out of the closers job, but that stretch has put him at the head of the committee which includes Luke Gregerson and Sean Doolittle.

After a nice meal in which I studied the stats of the Argo win, I prepared to leave the restaurant. As I was gathering my things to leave many large individuals began to walk up and wait for tables. Fake Vans From China . -- The Tampa Bay Lightning are disappointed, though not discouraged. "Im not even that added up," the 39-year-old Australian replied. And to the Hall of Famers surprise, when all the math was done Sunday in the JTBC Founders Cup, she was the one posing for pictures with the big trophy. Fake Vans Toy Story . Knapp defeated American Alison Riske 6-3, 7-5 to secure Italys victory in the best-of-five series. She held a 5-2 lead in the second set, only to let Riske tie it at five. Fake Vans Slip-on . - The Minnesota Vikings have ruled Christian Ponder out for Sundays game at Baltimore, because the quarterback has not yet passed all of his post-concussion tests.Our still-stunned US sportswriter, Alex Ferguson, gives you four things to think about from the Warriors incredible season…. On Thursday night, NBA legend Kobe Bryant said goodbye to the sport by scoring 60 points, but the biggest heroes of the night were the Golden State Warriors, who reached a sporting pinnacle with a regular-season record 73 wins (from 82 games) with a victory over Memphis - beating the 1995/96 Chicago Bulls 72-10 record.But how where they able to do it? Changing the game Our columnist on how Steph Curry is changing basketball Is this the greatest team ever?By sheer wins, yes. The truth, however, is that we simply dont know. Were comparing sides from two different generations.The 2015/16 Warriors team is no doubt more athletic, but the 95/96 Chicago Bulls had Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen and Dennis Rodman as well as a ton of talent elsewhere. But how do you deal with Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green and Andre Iguodala?Remember this: Chicago Bulls won the 1996 NBA title, the Golden State Warriors - although they are favourites to lift the trophy - have not done so yet. If they do, then we can continue the conversation. Who do we thank for all the victories?In the second-to-last game at San Antonio, Curry dropped an unbelievable 37 points as the Warriors gave the Spurs their first home loss of the year. Curry is a brilliant three-point shooter (successful with 45.4 per cent of his attempts), assist-giver (6.7 per game), and ball-stealer (2.1 per game), and hes so, so much fun to watch. Steph Curry has smashed records as well in a memmorable season so far And he scores a ton of points too (averaging 30.dddddddddddd1 per game), and you cant overlook the impact of Thompson. You can also thank the fact that they didnt have the injuries that other teams have had, and the fact that theyve got a great coach in Steve Kerr is also a benefiting factor. Should Steph Curry win the MVP?Curry has been outstanding throughout his teams run to the record. Hes hit three-point shots from nearer the half-way line than the three-point arc, and hes certainly not selfish, either. Is there anyone else in with a shout? Quite honestly, no, unless you want to yell for LeBron James.How good is Steph Currys supporting cast? Very, very good. Thompson, the other half of the Splash Brothers, averages 22.1 points per game.Draymond Green dominates both defensively and offensively (9.5 per game total). The talent is frightening and built for another title run. Will Golden State win the title?Golden State are favourites for the title, thats for certain. But will they? San Antonio, who finished second in the Western Conference with a 67-15 record, should battle them all the way in the semi-finals (or the Western Conference Finals, in US terms). And if they get there, they are almost certain to face LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers, favourites to emerge from the Eastern Conference and a team as dangerous as anybody.There are no guarantees, but no one would argue with you if you put some cash on the Warriors to win it all.
