Spring training roundup: Morrison gets deal, powers up Twins

Spring training roundup: Morrison gets deal, powers up Twins

The Minnesota Twins have powered up their lineup. Free agent slugger Logan Morrison and the Twins reached agreement on a $65 million, one-year deal, a person with knowledge of the deal told The Associated Press on Sunday. The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because the contract was subject to a physical. Morrison had a career-high 38 home runs and 85 RBIs for the Tampa Bay Rays last season, mostly as a first baseman. The 30-year-old Morrison has also played the corner outfield spots. With Eddie Rosario and Max Kepler in left field and right field and Joe Mauer at first base, Morrison is likely to be the primary designated hitter for a team that earned an AL wild-card spot last season. AROUND THE GRAPEFRUIT AND CACTUS LEAGUES: NATIONALS 9, BRAVES 3 Max Scherzer allowed one run, on a homer by Dansby Swanson, in two innings and struck out three for Washington.

The Phillies said infielder Will Middlebrooks broke his left leg when he collided with a teammate chasing a popup Saturday.

Harvick adds Cup win to dominant weekend at Atlanta

Harvick adds Cup win to dominant weekend at Atlanta

Kevin Harvick completed his weekend mastery of Atlanta Motor Speedway by holding off Brad Keselowski on Sunday in the rain-delayed NASCAR Monster Energy Cup race. Harvick, who was dominant Saturday in winning the second-tier Xfinity event, started fourth in the Cup race and quickly proved he had the car to beat. Harvick was comfortably in the lead when Trevor Bayne's engine blew with 28 laps to go. The restart gave contenders a chance to grab the lead, but Harvick beat Keselowski to remain in control. 'What a relief,' Harvick told his crew after crossing the finish line. He led 292 laps in Atlanta last year before finishing ninth following a pit road speeding penalty. The start was delayed 2 hours, 30 minutes by rain. The threat of more rain added urgency in the late battle for the lead. There were reports of drops of rain with more than 130 laps remaining, leading to increased concerns the race could end early. Clint Bowyer was third, followed by Denny Hamlin. Harvick quickly moved from 19th back to the lead following a green flag pit stop early in the race and again quickly moved back to the lead following a pit stop on lap 252. He took the lead following a competition caution on lap 30 and stayed in front to take the first stage win. Harvick's crew had difficulty during his pit stop following the first stage, and he had lost ground when he returned to the pit. Harvick was 19th following the unscheduled pit stop and returned to the lead on lap 131 before Brad Keselowski won stage 2. Harvick's No. 4 Ford has become a familiar figure in the lead at Atlanta. He led 141 of 163 laps Saturday for his Xfinity win after his strong performance in last year's Cup race. Despite that recent dominance, this was only Harvick's second Cup win in Atlanta. He also won in 2001, giving the Richard Childress team a win following the death of Dale Earnhardt in Daytona a few weeks earlier. Harvick was given a new No. 29 in Earnhardt's car. Following the win, Harvick held three fingers out of the window in tribute to Earnhardt. Harvick duplicated that three-finger salute after Sunday's win. Rookie Darrell 'Bubba' Wallace Jr., coming off a second-place finish at last week's Daytona 500, finished 32nd. Wallace was the first black driver in the Daytona 500 field since 1969, and he became the first black Cup racer in an Atlanta race since Bill Lester finished 38th in 2006. Martin Truex Jr., the 2017 series champion, started 35th after failing to qualify on Saturday but was up to fourth by the 12th lap before finishing fifth. Jimmie Johnson, who won in Atlanta in 2015 and 2016, finished 27th. There were no wrecks but there was a caution after Johnson's spin in turn 2 on lap 160. With no 'open' cars, the 36-car field was NASCAR's smallest since 1996. There were 40 cars in the Daytona field. ___ For more AP racing coverage: http://racing.ap.org

PSG striker Neymar off on stretcher after twisting ankle

PSG striker Neymar off on stretcher after twisting ankle

Neymar went off on a stretcher after twisting his right ankle late in league leader Paris Saint-Germain's 3-0 victory against Marseille on Sunday. The Brazil striker was taken off with 10 minutes remaining, after going in for a challenge on Marseille defender Bouna Sarr. PSG coach Unai Emery is hopeful that Neymar will recover in time for the Champions League game against Real Madrid on March 6. PSG trails 3-1 from the first leg in the last 16. 'The first tests revealed a twist. We will do further tests,' Emery said. 'For the match against Real, if I had to say 'yes or no' right now, I'd say yes.' Neymar had his head in his hands and appeared tearful as he was taken off. His standing leg jarred as he lost balance and the weight of his body went onto his ankle, which briefly buckled under him. 'Of course I'm worried about Neymar,' PSG goalkeeper Alphonse Areola said. 'His ankle was quite swollen. He's an important player for us and I hope he comes back quickly.' PSG's game against fierce rival Marseille was heated, especially in the second half, with cheap challenges from both teams and 11 yellow cards — six of them for the hosts. 'We were solid and we tried to control the game,' PSG captain Thiago Silva said. 'It's a shame that we lost an important player (Neymar) at the end.' The win moved PSG 14 points clear of second-place Monaco, with only 11 games left. Marseille is two points further back in third. PSG's first two goals stemmed from Marseille's mistakes at the back. In the 10th minute, PSG right back Dani Alves' pass behind the defense was easily read by left back Jordan Amavi. But rather than clearing the ball properly, his soft sliding tackle knocked it to Kylian Mbappe, who skipped past another defender before drilling a low shot into the bottom right corner. The second goal came from the other side, as midfielder Adrien Rabiot broke down the left and his cross found Neymar, whose side-footed pass was turned into his own net by center half Jorge Rolando in the 28th. PSG's third in the 56th owed nothing to fortune, as Cavani expertly controlled Neymar's pass from the left with the inside of his foot, easily turned Rolando and smacked in a powerful shot past goalkeeper Yohann Pele for his league-leading 24th of the season. Mbappe shook his head disapprovingly when substituted, with winger Angel Di Maria replacing him for the last 30 minutes. Marseille threatened mainly from midfielder Dimitri Payet's laser-like free kicks, but no one could get on the end of them. ___ SAME OLD MISTAKES Lyon's poor defending cost the team once again as right back Mathieu Debuchy scored a last-minute equalizer for local rival Saint-Etienne in a 1-1 draw. Debuchy, a recent signing from Premier League Arsenal, was left unmarked inside the penalty area to steer in a shot off the post from Remy Cabella's left-wing cross. Lyon has only two points from the past five games — conceding 11 goals — and the club's hopes of securing a top-three finish and a place in next season's Champions League are fading fast. Fourth-place Lyon is five points behind third-place Marseille. A brilliantly executed goal from striker Mariano Diaz, his 15th of the season, gave Lyon a 19th-minute lead. He chested down a long pass from Brazilian defender Marcelo with his back to goal, flicked the ball around a defender with his right foot and then regained his balance before adroitly clipping it with his left past goalkeeper Stephane Ruffier. The two teams are bitter rivals with 17 league titles between them, including a French-record 10 for Saint-Etienne. But Lyon has been the superior team for many years, winning seven titles from 2002-08. ___ SAVED BY THE WOODWORK Nice was reprieved by the woodwork four times in a 0-0 draw at Bordeaux. Bordeaux striker Nicolas De Preville hit the crossbar in the first half and in stoppage time. The post was also hit by midfielder Soualiho Meite in the 12th minute and center half Paul Baysee in the 89th. Bordeaux is in eighth place and Nice remains ninth.
