Mike Soroka suffers season-ending Achilles tear

  Mike Soroka suffers season-ending Achilles tear Braves ace Mike Soroka suffered a torn right Achilles on Monday and will miss the rest of the season. Not only is this development horrible news for Soroka and the Braves, but it’s a blow to baseball fans who have been treated to his outstanding performance since he debuted in 2018. Still just 22 years old, Soroka was an All-Star last season who has registered a 2.72 ERA/3.34 FIP with 7.27 K/9, 2.17 BB/9 and a 50.4 percent groundball rate in 211 2/3 innings in the majors.

The Dolphins acquired linebacker Vince Biegel from the New Orleans Saints. Biegel has played in 23 NFL games over the past two seasons – one with Green Bay (2017) and one with New Orleans (2018). He has 10 career tackles (seven solo) and 10 special teams stops (seven solo).

The Dolphins have officially locked in linebacker Vince Biegel for another season in 2020. Biegel came to Miami in the eleventh hour before the start of the 2019 season. The Dolphins have added tons of competition to their pass rush group, but expect to see a clear role carved out for Biegel .

A fourth-year defender, Biegel started 10 games for the Dolphins last season. He led the team with 13 quarterback hits. The former Packers draftee entered 2019 without any QB hits in his previous two seasons.

Miami Dolphins unveil jersey patch to honor Don Shula

  Miami Dolphins unveil jersey patch to honor Don Shula The Dolphins’ decision to hire Don Shula in 1970 would go down as one of the greatest moves in history, sparking one of the NFL’s greatest dynasties. “We are proud to continue honoring his historic life and legacy with a patch that is emblematic of his success on the football field as the winningest coach in our league’s history.” – Stephen Ross pic.twitter.com/eI7rIY0bJA— Miami Dolphins (@MiamiDolphins) August 13, 2020 It’s only fitting that the patch this season will honor Shula’s incredible reputation for winning.

Dolphins ' Vince Biegel : Signs RFA tender. by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire. Biegel (elbow) has officially signed his restricted free agent tender with the Dolphins . Following a career year, Biegel and the Dolphins were unable to come to terms on a long-term deal.

Biegel and the Dolphins were discussing an extension in January. While the pandemic prompted many teams to table extension talks, Biegel’s value will take a serious hit with Tuesday’s news. The Dolphins tendered the former fourth-round pick as an RFA this offseason.

While the Dolphins featured plenty of opportunities for previously under-the-radar players to see playing time last season, they featured some experience at linebacker in Raekwon McMillan and Jerome Baker. Biegel still played 56% of Miami’s defensive snaps — after previously never clearing the 12% threshold while with the Packers and Saints — and recorded 59 tackles and an interception.

Broken rules or bruised egos? Rangers need to get over Fernando Tatis Jr.'s grand slam

  Broken rules or bruised egos? Rangers need to get over Fernando Tatis Jr.'s grand slam The unwritten rules of the game are basically someone getting triggered while losing and trying to claim a moral high ground. San Diego went on to win, 14-4. Rangers manager Chris Woodward got chapped and complained, although not before one of his pitchers, Ian Gibaut, threw a ball behind the head of San Diego’s Manny Machado in presumed retaliation. San Diego manager Jayce Tingler didn’t even disagree. He said that Tatis missed a sign to take the pitch. Tatis said he had no idea this was an unwritten rule, but offered up some mea culpa, probably so he doesn’t get fastballs thrown at his head for insulting the Rangers.
