Koepka underwent a stem cell procedure on his left knee in September after struggling with a partially torn patella tendon last season. He re-aggravated the knee after slipping on wet concrete at the CJ Cup at Nine Bridges and was forced to withdraw from the tournament. The two-time PGA Championship winner said walking downhill was still “a pain” on his injured knee during tournaments in July.

While Koepka will surely be disappointed after withdrawing, it could be a blessing in disguise. The U.S. Open is scheduled to start on September 14. Golfers who qualify for the Tour Championship will play three weeks of playoff events, then likely will take one week off before arriving in Mamaroneck, New York, for the event that is annually billed as the toughest tournament in the sport. If Koepka is having trouble with his hip or knee, an extended break might help his chances of winning a third U.S. Open.

Orioles’ LeBlanc, Severino leave game with injuries .
We’ll have to wait until Monday to get an idea of the severity of the Orioles’ latest injuries.Severino has been one of Baltimore's most productive bats thus far, slugging five homers to go with a solid .329/.398/.570 slash line. Even so, his hard-hit rates and exit velocity numbers don’t lend themselves to that type of success. Surely, a .967 OPS is unreasonable to expect the rest of the way, but even something more in line with his 2019 .740 OPS is nothing to scoff at, especially by catcher standards.
