As training camps continue many teams are getting a better idea of what areas they lack depth in and what players they need to target.

Barr reportedly narrowed his list down to two teams, the Denver Broncos and the Dallas Cowboys, although he did have some interest from the Washington Commanders.

A call-up from Double-A, Grissom hit a dinger into the upper deck in the seventh inning for his first MLB hit ever. “I didn’t feel a thing.

The New York Rangers finally have a new captain after years of leaving the role vacant.
