July 13, 2018 11:14 PM Corey Kluber to miss all-star game with knee injury

Cleveland’s ace received an injection in his right knee that will force him to miss the all-star game. But, more importantly, the Indians are hoping it will allow the right-hander to continue leading their rotation after the break — and beyond. Kluber got the shot in his knee on Friday, a day after the two-time Cy Young Award winner gave up two runs in the eighth 8

KING CITY, ONT.—The second round of the Global T20 Canada cricket tournament gets underway Tuesday at the Maple Leaf Cricket Club, with a development side from the Caribbean leading the table ahead of teams featuring top cricket talent.

The future starts now for the winless Toronto Argonauts, with James Franklin at the helm instead of talismanic veteran Ricky Ray.

Just to add some extra spice, Saturday’s contest at BMO Field is the first half of a home-and-away 27

John Obi Mikel, the captain of Nigeria’s World Cup team, revealed Tuesday that he played against Argentina last week knowing his father was being held for ransom by kidnappers back home, information he kept to himself because they had threatened to shoot his father “instantly” if he contacted police. In an interview with Kwese ESPN, Mikel said he received 10

That was Kessel, who would become Bozak’s roommate. The two were, in fact, so close, they became the object of some chirping in the Leafs’ dressing room, where the pair were quickly dubbed “Bert and Ernie,” a reference to the Sesame Street characters. “I can still see Ron Wilson’s handwriting on the whiteboard in my mind from January 12, my second ever NHL game,” Bozak 9

“He’s done a lot for me,” Gibbons reminisced. “He’s done a lot for this team.” The bench boss had watched, from a distance, as free-agent Bautista failed to get a contract nibble in the off-season. Somewhat surprised by that, even granting that, at 37, Bautista had a lot of tree rings on him and had lost some of his ferocious bat speed. “I thought he’d be perfect 8
