Stu Cowan: Scoring comes naturally to Habs marksman Tyler Toffoli

  Stu Cowan: Scoring comes naturally to Habs marksman Tyler Toffoli Tyler Toffoli just looks like a goal-scorer. One of those guys when you’re playing against a team you’ve never seen before at any level of hockey, you look at him and say: “We better watch that guy.” It might be as simple as the way they wear their helmet, the number on their sweater or the way they skate and/or shoot during a pre-game warmup. They just have that look. So far this season, Toffoli has looked very good in a No. 73 Canadiens sweater, scoring 10 goals in the first 15 games since signing a four-year, US$17-million contract as a free agent during the off-season. It’s hard to teach someone to be a goal-scorer.

The agreement was reached on Monday and confirmed to the AP on condition of anonymity because the deal is pending a physical. Arizona also signed right-hander Joakim Soria to a .5 million, one - year deal . Both pitchers could have a chance to earn the closer’s role in a Diamondbacks bullpen that figures to be young and inexperienced. The Arizona Republic first reported Clippard ’s deal with the D - backs .

The agreement was reached on Monday and confirmed to the AP on condition of anonymity because the deal is pending a physical. The deal includes a $1.75 million salary this year and a $3.5 million mutual option for 2022 with a $500,000 buyout.

The 36-year-old right-hander is a two-time All-Star and has 777 appearances over 14 seasons with a career 3.13 ERA. He had a 2.77 ERA in 26 appearances with the Minnesota Twins last season, when he made $1,018,519 in prorated pay from a $2.75 million base salary plus $190,021 in earned bonuses for total income of $1,208,540.

Bullpen additions for Twins don't mean demotion for Rogers

  Bullpen additions for Twins don't mean demotion for Rogers MINNEAPOLIS — The Minnesota Twins bolstered their bullpen this winter by signing two pitchers with ninth-inning experience, including the most recent closer for their primary division rival. Adding Hansel Robles and Alex Colomé doesn't mean the Twins have demoted Taylor Rogers, though, despite a rough 2020 that was his worst of five seasons in the majors. They won't designate one reliever for a permanent ninth-inning role, in keeping with their practice over manager Rocco Baldelli's first two years. They're also confident the struggles Rogers endured last season were more statistical fluke than warning sign. “We didn't think Taylor had a bad season.

CHICAGO ( AP ) — The Cubs added another outfielder, agreeing to a .5 million, one - year contract with Jake Marisnick, a person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press. Marisnick will make million this season, the person said Thursday, speaking on condition of anonymity because the move was pending a physical. Cruz tweeted in response to one hospital in England advising nurses in the maternity ward to use language more friendly to the trans community.

This will be Clippard's second stint with the Diamondbacks. He appeared in 40 games with the team in 2016 before being sent to the New York Yankees in a trade.

Clippard is the second veteran bullpen arm the D-backs have signed in the past few weeks. Arizona also signed right-hander Joakim Soria to a $3.5 million, one-year deal. Both pitchers could have a chance to earn the closer's role in a Diamondbacks bullpen that figures to be young and inexperienced.

The Arizona Republic first reported Clippard's deal with the D-backs.

The Diamondbacks also confirmed a $1.75 million, one-year deal with infielder Asdrubal Cabrera. The 35-year-old was in D-backs camp on Monday when the team went through its first workout of the spring with the full roster.

Cabrera made $925,926 in prorated pay from a $2.5 million salary last year plus $186,604 in earned bonuses for total income of $1,112,530.
