Odell Beckham Jr.’s latest controversy has led some to wonder if he’s worth keeping in New York.
Giants co-owner John Mara didn’t exactly commit to Beckham’s future with the team after a video of a man appearing to be the Giants receiver surfaced with what many have speculated could be drugs.
“I can’t answer that one way or the other. We’re certainly not shopping him,” Mara said Sunday at the NFL owners’ meetings. “Again, when you’re coming off a season when you’re 3-13 and played as poorly as we played, I wouldn’t say that anyone is untouchable.”
Mara admitted the video, which shows a model and a man resembling Beckham in bed holding a brown blunt in his hand, didn’t help the expectations the Giants have for Beckham.
Phillies: RHP Pat Neshek said he feels better after receiving a cortisone shot on Friday. Neshek began the season on the DL because of a shoulder injury and expects to return in a month.
RHP Jake Arrieta, the 2015 NL Cy Young Award winner, makes his debut with the Phillies on Sunday after signing a $75 million, three-year deal in free agency. RHP Trevor Richards (0-1, 10.38 ERA) makes his second career start for the Marlins.
Police say they have recovered several of the stolen items, including Apple and Rolex watches and rare coins.
In addition to Almeida, police are looking for two other suspects they identified as Shayne Denn, 26, and Eric Tyrell, 28, both of whom remain at-large.
Indians right-hander Trevor Bauer, who surrendered Duda’s homer Saturday, said he didn’t have enough time to warm up before the inning. In an attempt to speed up play this season, Major League Baseball has cut the time between innings from 2 minutes, 25 seconds to 2:05.
Bauer criticized Commissioner Rob Manfred’s decision, but Francona said the pitchers need to adjust.
“If a pitcher wants to throw more, they’ve got to get out there,” Francona said. “The umpire’s responsibility is to start this game at a certain point and we kind of explained that to our guys.”
