Padres, Wil Myers agree to 6-year extension worth reported $83M

All-Star first baseman Wil Myers and the Padres have agreed on a six-year extension, the team announced Tuesday.

The deal is worth a franchise-record $83 million, FanRag Sports reported, citing unidentified sources.

We’re excited to secure a player with talent like Wil’s for the next six years, Padres general manager A.J. Preller said in a statement. Wil has shown that he wants to be in San Diego and wants to be a Padre, and he is going to be an integral part of our team and the community as we continue to build a championship club.

The Browns are also willing to eat as much as half of Osweiler’s $16 million contract in a trade scenario. Kay Cabot noted.

While that seems like a smart move by the Browns, it’s unlikely.

Several NFL personnel executives say they doubt anyone will give the Browns a third-round pick for Osweiler and pay him $8 million a year, Kay Cabot wrote. If that could’ve been done, the Texans would’ve done it, they say.

The more likely scenario for the Browns is that they cut Osweiler and someone signs him for about $4 million a year. With offset language in his contract, that would reduce the price of the move up to somewhere between 33 and 64 to about $12 million.

Arizona Wildcats baseball channels ‘Major League’ in spot-on video spoof

If you’re gonna play baseball where Major League was filmed, you might as well take advantage. Well played, Arizona Wildcats.

In a clever promotional video for their 2017 season, the Wildcats channel the cult 1989 baseball film in a near-shot-for-shot remake of the famous spring training arrival scene at Hi Corbett Field, which long-served as the spring training home of the Indians and is now the home of the Wildcats.

I have a food show that’s going to be streaming on Netflix and Hulu, Fielder said. It’s coming out around the beginning of spring training in March, I believe. It’s not just baseball people. It’s a mixture of baseball people, actors, musicians, chefs and whatnot. They bring out different dishes, and at the end of the show, I give the one I like the most the ‘Fielder’s choice.’ It’s good TV.

Fielder, a six-time All-Star, was a vegetarian at one point in his career. Baseball-Reference.com lists his playing height and weight at 5-foot-11, 275 pounds.

In other words, who better than Prince to have a show about the joys of eating?

According to Fielder, actor Chazz Palminteri, singer Jose Feliciano and rapper Xzibit will be guests.

CC Sabathia will also appear. That should be entertaining.

Red Sox renew Mookie Betts’ contract for near-record amount

The Red Sox on Thursday renewed right fielder Mookie Betts with a $950,000 contract for 2017, the second-highest one-year deal of its kind in MLB history, USA Today reported .

Only Mike Trout’s $1 million deal from the Angels in 2014 was bigger for a player with two-plus years of MLB service but not yet eligible for arbitration.

Under baseball’s collective bargaining agreement, players with under three years’ service time have no leverage in negotiations. If such a player, like Betts, is unable to reach a contract agreement with his team, then he can opt to have his contract renewed, perhaps as a way of showing he’s unhappy with the team’s salary offer.

So could Tebow be in line to earn a promotion? There is speculation he could be boosted to the High-A Port St. Lucie Mets, but that likely won’t happen for a while.

According to The State, the Mets have a long-term plan for Tebow and will continue to monitor his improvement.

He has been able to get his foot down on time, working on his timing, and it is finally paying off. He is more consistent, Leger said. When you get a couple hits and find that rhythm at the plate, your confidence also grows. That is what has been happening.

Phillies ready to give Hector Neris save opportunities

The Phillies’ closer situation may not seem like a huge deal under normal circumstances, but they are finally giving their best reliever a chance to shine.

Since trading Ken Giles to the Astros in December 2015, Philadelphia has been struggling to find a consistent presence to close out games. April’s follies alone have epitomized their desperation and cluelessness.

In his first comments since Castro’s passing, Elias criticized the reception people had toward his death.

I didn’t really like the reaction some people had, said Elias through translator Daveson Perez, via WEEI in Boston. They were happy he passed away. But at the end of the day, someone who, in though it was a little bit, helped me out when I was living there for 21 years. I had a normal day when he passed away. I just didn’t like how some people were happy he passed away, because he’s a person, too.

Good or bad, I think he definitely helped a lot of people who are living here today. People who lived in Cuba ate his food, they took what was given to them. To have a party, all of a sudden, during his passing doesn’t seem right to me.

Elias is not alone, Castro’s mixed legacy will be debated for years to come. While he tirelessly defended the poor, he forced Cuba into economic ruin and withheld basic freedoms from millions of Cubans.

Buccaneers sign Nick Folk to compete with Roberto Aguayo

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers haven’t given up on young kicker Roberto Aguayo, but they may be hedging their bet by signing veteran kicker Nick Folk Saturday..

The Bucs were widely ridiculed for drafting Aguayo in the second round of the 2016 NFL draft, and they actually traded up into that spot to select the former Florida State kicker. The rookie struggled last season, hitting only 22 of 31 field goal attempts (71 percent), the lowest percentage of any NFL kicker. He made just four of 11 attempts from beyond 40 yards.

The Cubs don’t have a prototypical leadoff hitter, instead they will likely rely on a combination of Schwarber, Ben Zobrist and possibly Albert Almora Jr.

The Rangers (17-20) have now won four straight games, but still have a lot of ground to make up in the AL West behind the Astros. Starting pitching has been a concern for Texas this season, but Andrew Cashner allowed just one run in six innings Friday, lowering his ERA to 2.43 in the process.

Gallo has been a revolution in the power department this season, but he is still hitting just .203 with a brutal 54 strikeouts in 118 at-bats. His heroics were great, but he needs to become more consistent in the long run.

Saints’ Sean Payton was a Johnny Manziel fan before 2014 NFL Draft

The Saints reportedly are interested in bringing quarterback Johnny Manziel back to the NFL, fresh off coach Sean Payton reportedly having a breakfast meeting last month with the Browns’ 2014 first-round pick.

In the first inning, Archer fired a first-pitch 97 mph fastball well behind Bautista’s back, resulting in a staredown between the two. Home plate umpire Jim Wolf issued warnings to both teams and Bautista flew out to right field on the third pitch of the at-bat. As he headed to the dugout, Bautista exchanged words with the Rays’ right-hander.

The game continued without further incident.

Afterward, Archer said the ball simply got away from him. Bautista admitted he wasn’t sure about Archer’s intent.

Gibbons, though, likened the ordeal to last week’s debacle between Machado and Red Sox reliever Matt Barnes, who threw a pitch that came dangerously close the the Orioles slugger’s head. It was apparent retaliation for Machado having injured Boston’s Dustin Pedroia earlier in the series on a controversial slide.

Barnes received a four-game suspension and was fined.

On Saturday, Blue Jays pitcher Joe Biagini threw an inside pitch that caught the Rays’ Steven Souza Jr. on his left hand. Biagini’s pitch did not seem to be intentional.

Souza suffered only a contusion and is day to day.
