Mets ace Jacob deGrom to have another rehab start, return date pushed back

  Mets ace Jacob deGrom to have another rehab start, return date pushed back While the rehab start wasn't unexpected, it also ensures that Jacob deGrom will not be available to rejoin the Mets this week to face the Yankees as was previously hoped. The 34-year-old right-hander had a simulated game pushed back last week after he experienced soreness in his shoulder. He was seen having a throwing session at Citi Field over the weekend. Jacob deGrom threw a side session today at Citi Field. Plan is still for him to throw in a minor league rehab game this week, day and locale TBA.

About the tournament

The first of three FedEx Cup Playoffs events takes place this week in Memphis with the FedEx St. Jude Championship. Players in the top top 125 of the FedEx Cup standings are eligible to play this week at TPC Southwind. After this week the top 70 players in the standings will move on to the BMW Championship and then the top 30 players will play in the TOUR Championship the following week with plenty of money on the line.

Report: Dodgers 'have tried to engage' Angels regarding Shohei Ohtani

  Report: Dodgers 'have tried to engage' Angels regarding Shohei Ohtani The Angels would likely be reluctant to trade Ohtani to their intracity rival. Even if a trade is unlikely, it’s extremely notable that the Dodgers have interest in trading for Ohtani. They were one of the finalists to sign Ohtani when he entered MLB as a free agent from Japan.The Dodgers have a rich history of Japanese players starring for their franchise. From Hideo Nomo to Kenta Maeda, Kaz Ishii, Takashi Saito and Hiroki Kuroda, the Dodgers have had a strong pipeline of Japanese pitchers play for them. Ohtani would be a natural fit with the team.Plus, Ohtani has said that winning is his priority.

In the last five years the first FedEx Cup Playoffs event was called THE NORTHERN TRUST and was played at a rotation of courses in the Northeast region of the country. Now the first event has moved to Memphis where the PGA TOUR has been making annual stops. The last three years, TPC Southwind has hosted a WGC tournament and before that there was a regular event at the course since 1989.

The field for this event is one of the strongest of the year because it’s based off results over the last 11 months on the PGA TOUR and majors. Many of the top players haven’t played competitively in nearly a month at The Open Championship. Rory McIlroy (10/1) tops the oddsboard this week and he is followed in the pricing by currently FedEx Cup points leader Scottie Scheffler (14/1).

Justin Thomas (18/1) is the player I’m going to consider in this range. I like the number on Thomas who has only contended once (third at the RBC Canadian Open) since he won the PGA Championship back in May. Thomas made the weekends, but was a non-factor at both the U.S. Open and The Open Championship. Because of his lackluster recent results, I believe there is a price discount on Thomas. Now he plays at a course he won at two years ago in a strong-field event like this one, despite losing strokes putting that week. I’ll closely monitor Thomas’ odds this week and hope he drifts to 20/1 or better.

Will Zalatoris (25/1) played the last two weeks unlike many of his top-rated counterparts. He was priced as one of the favorites at the Rocket Mortgage Challenge and the Wyndham Championship, and I wasn’t interested in Zalatoris at shorter prices in weaker fields. I bet on him Monday because he’s played his best in strong-field events. Zalatoris has the iron game to have success at this course even if he struggles putting. One potential concern is he is going through a caddie switch, but that could end up being a positive. I bet on Zalatoris in the last three majors and will try again to be on him for his first PGA TOUR victory.

Cardinals to designate veteran Austin Romine for assignment

  Cardinals to designate veteran Austin Romine for assignment An 11-year MLB veteran, Austin Romine will presumably find himself on waivers over the next few days. He’s a .236/.275/.354 hitter between the Yankees, Tigers, Cubs, Angels and Cardinals. Clubs are always on the hunt for veteran catching depth, so it stands to reason Romine will catch on somewhere shortly. Even if he passes through waivers unclaimed, he’ll have the right to elect free agency and seek out other minor league opportunities.Subscribe to Yardbarker's Morning Bark, the most comprehensive newsletter in sports.

Shane Lowry (33/1) was a player I considered last week at the Wyndham Championship at 16/1 but didn’t feel comfortable betting him at that number. He also faced some adversity during the week when his golf clubs and suitcase went missing and arrived the day before the first round. He also left Greensboro on Friday thinking he was going to miss the cut and then had to fly back to the course early Saturday after making it. Hopefully Lowry has a smoother week of preparation and he can make his move up the FedEx Cup standings entering this week in 28th place. Lowry finished tied for 83rd at the Wyndham, but had good approach numbers over the four days.

Mid-range targets

Russell Henley (50/1) is my favorite player in this range after I bet on him at half the price last week. Henley played how I was hoping he would at the Wyndham Championship, as he ranked first in strokes gained approach and played bogey-free golf for his first 47 holes. But an average week with his putter was only good enough to finish tied for fifth place and he missed multiple short birdie putts all weekend. I’ll bet on Henley to continue his strong iron play for the third-straight week and hope he can hole some of the makable putts.

Longshots

I am hesitant to bet multiple longshots this week even though there are several intriguing players at big numbers. But usually in fields this strong, an elite player rises to the top. Davis Riley (80/1) and Brendan Steele (150/1) are players I have recently bet who are good ball strikers. I would even add Anirban Lahiri (150/1) to the shortlist after the week he had off the tee and with approach at the Wyndham Championship.

The player that sticks out and one I ultimately bet already is Keith Mitchell (125/1). His form was very strong before the July events in Scotland and then disappointingly missed the cut at The Open Championship. Last week he finished 54th at the Wyndham and led the field in strokes gained off the tee. Mitchell has putted very well this year, but that was not the case this past week. At this number, I took a shot on positive putting regression and will also bet on him to finish top 5 at 20/1.

Orioles to promote top pitching prospect DL Hall for MLB debut .
Hall is expected to start Saturday night’s game for the O’s, marking his major league debut. © David Richard-USA TODAY Sports DL Hall is set to make his MLB debut. It’s been a half-decade since Hall entered the organization as the 21st overall pick in the 2017 draft. A Georgia high school product, he received a $3M signing bonus on the strength of a mid-90s fastball and a curveball that most evaluators considered at least a plus offering. Hall also showed a promising changeup but had some questions about the consistency of strike-throwing ability.
