    NYON, Switzerland (AP) — Dinamo Zagreb’s path back to the Champions League group stage will start away to Cluj or Floriana in the second qualifying round draw made Monday by UEFA.

    Gabe Kapler’s bullpen became a little bit deeper Sunday with the addition of left-handed reliever Jarlín García. The Giants reinstated García from the 10-day injured list, which is where he spent most of summer camp due to undisclosed medical reasons. The organization never confirmed García tested positive for COVID-19, but he did not count toward the Giants’ 40-man roster while he was on the injured list. Players who are placed on a designated coronavirus injured list are temporarily removed from the 40-man roster, so it is believed García was among the players who tested positive during the intake process at the beginning of July. To clear a 40-man roster spot for the former Miami Marlins reliever, the Giants designated infielder Abiatal Avelino for assignment. The right-handed hitting Avelino was acquired in the 2018 trade that sent Andrew McCutchen to the New York Yankees. Related Articles SF Giants acquire outfielder...

    Georgia Republican Sen. Kelly Loeffler is not a fan of the WNBA's decision to have players sport "Black Lives Matter" and "Say Her Name" on their jerseys, and she let the league commissioner know it. The fact that a U.S. senator is publicly calling out the WNBA is interesting enough. What makes Loeffler's complaint carry more weight is she's a co-owner of the WNBA's Atlanta Dream. The senator's statements set off WNBA players, including members of her own team, who have now taken to wearing T-shirts supporting Loeffler's Democratic challenger to their games and demanding that the league strip her of her ownership. And now Loeffler is blasting her players for their latest antics. What's going on? Earlier this summer, Loeffler wrote a letter to WNBA Commissioner Cathy Engelbert asking that the league reverse its decision to emblazon team jerseys with...

    OAKLAND — Finally, the A’s No. 1 pitching prospect will make his first big league start. Jesús Luzardo, after two years of bad breaks, will get the nod Tuesday night against the Texas Rangers. Luzardo’s highly-anticipated start comes amid a pandemic-delayed MLB season, but will be remembered in Athletics’ history. Where might it stand among the A’s franchise’s storied starts through the decades? Sonny Gray, age 23, 2013, at Toronto Blue Jays, 5-4 loss, L.  Line: six innings, four hits, four runs, two earned runs, three walks, five strikeouts The A’s biggest pitching prospect of the early 2010s’ first big league start in Toronto started with a thump courtesy of Jose Bautista’s two-run blast in the first inning. Two unearned runs are the more unsightly blemishes on his start, and were of no fault of his own. Gray’s second big league start produced some cleaner numbers: eight shutout innings with...

    Abhishek Bachchan yesterday posted a very cryptic tweet that said C-16. Many assumed and are confident that it’s a hint towards the third season of Breathe. While the first had R Madhavan in it, the second had AB in a crucial role as a father. So it definitely made everyone anxious. But you know there will always be someone to spoil the fun and here too, AB found one. While the troll tried to crack a joke at his expense, Abhishek shut her down with a rebuttal that’s polite, humble and shows he is a forgiving person.

    The Miami Marlins played against the Philadelphia Phillies on Sunday while knowing four players had tested positive for COVID-19. By Tuesday, the team was up to 17 cases within the clubhouse.

    To one public health expert, the Miami Marlins outbreak — in which at least 14 members of the team, including 12 players, have contracted the coronavirus — is a frightening harbinger of things to come. Appearing on CNN’s New Day Tuesday, Professor William Haseltine issued a dire warning — stating that what’s happening in baseball could happen on a dramatically larger scale if schools reopen in the fall. “I think what you’re seeing is what’s about to happen in our high schools,” Haseltine said. “There’s very little difference between the way the virus spreads in young baseball players — many who are just barely into their 20s — and how it’s going to spread in high schools with anybody who’s an adolescent or a teenager.” Any attempt to create a bubble won’t work either, according to Haseltine. No matter how much testing is done in an effort to create...
    The Braves designated right-hander Mike Foltynewicz for assignment Monday night shortly after his first start of the 2020 season — a clunker in which he allowed six earned runs in 3 1/3 innings. The move felt sudden on a couple of levels. Foltynewicz is 28 and just two years removed from receiving Cy Young votes, meaning there is a reasonable chance of him pitching at a very high level again at some point. Even if he didn’t perform particularly well this season, he would have been an inexpensive option to bring back via arbitration for 2021. He also was given just one outing to prove himself this campaign. That said, Atlanta did have its reasons for letting Foltynewicz head elsewhere. He was out of minor league options, meaning the team could not take him off its active roster without designating him for assignment. The club is also competing in perhaps the toughest division in baseball in a...

    LeBron James demanded justice for Breonna Taylor following his return from the NBA's coronavirus stoppage on Thursday night, calling for the arrests of the three Louisville police officers who shot and killed the black 26-year-old emergency medical technician inside her apartment on March 13.

The English team saw the...

    Barry Sanders, (JEFF KOWALSKY/AFP/Getty Images) Barry Sanders is the most exciting running back of all time.There have been better players in the history of the NFL, but what can’t be argued is the fact that former Detroit Lions superstar Barry Sanders was one of the most dominant running backs who ever lived. Sanders, unquestionably the most electric and fun-to-watch running back who ever played, turned 52 today, meaning there is no better occasion to break out a highlight reel of Sanders‘ most jaw-dropping runs.

    The National Football League celebrated its 100th anniversary last year. This should be a time of self-congratulation for the brutal sport, which has no similar counterpart outside the United States. The NFL’s megaprofits dwarf those of other professional sports in the U.S. The Super Bowl, not the World Series, is America’s national sports event. The league survived all sorts of crises in the past. It was one of the first professional sports to integrate its teams, doing so in the 1920s. But the integration unfortunately ceased, and the NFL didn’t reintegrate until the mid-’40s, becoming one of the last sports leagues to embrace fully a racially blind meritocracy. The NFL successfully absorbed the rival American Football league in 1966. So far, the NFL has avoided federal safety regulations that could curb the incidence of physical trauma inherent in the sport. The league’s owners are a cross-section of America’s most successful...

    The first ever Premier league football match to stream on Twitch will air tonight, with Crystal Palace versus Burnley at 7:30pm BST. The game — which will be streamed on Twitch by Amazon UK — marks a significant evolution for the platform, which until now has been primarily designed for video games and esports.
