Kingery had a solid day Thursday. In the third inning, he jumped a first-pitch, 96-mph fastball from Gerrit Cole and powered it, on a line, to the wall for a double. Two innings later, he grounded out back to the mound on an 0-1 curveball from Jonathan Loaisiga.
The 25-year-old made his major league debut in 2020 against the Texas Rangers. It was a rather forgettable outing, but he’s been impressing the A’s with his new slider -- the pitch he needs to add to his arsenal and one that added to his confidence. Houston Astros face coverings

The Patriots have seen him up close a couple of times. His sack numbers (at least six in each of the last four years) might get him paid, but if he's one of the vets who feels the COVID-related squeeze and his market isn't incredibly strong, it would come as little surprise if the Patriots swooped in to offer him a contract.

Bell was not much of a factor in Kansas City’s offense upon arrival. In nine regular-season games with the Chiefs, Bell rushed for 254 yards and two touchdowns on 63 carries. Come playoff time, Bell logged six rushing yards on two carries in the AFC Divisional Round against the Cleveland Browns. The veteran running back missed the AFC Championship Game due to a knee injury and did not touch the ball in Super Bowl 55, where the Chiefs fell to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 31-9.

Cam Newton is re-signing with the Patriots on a one-year deal, sources have confirmed to ESPN. The contract is worth close to $14 million, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Keep in mind, this is an organization that has only had 12 30-goal seasons (from only six different players) in 20 years of existence. Gaborik reached that mark five times, Brian Rolston hit it three times, and Jason Pominville, Jason Zucker, Zach Parise and Eric Staal each hit it one time. Excluding expansion Vegas, the only teams that have had fewer 30-goal seasons during that stretch are Arizona, Nashville, Florida, and Edmonton.

Maurice wasn't clued into the news at that point. He hadn't seen the cases rising in North America after the coronavirus pandemic swept through Europe. He hadn't heard about the cities in the U.S. that were shutting down mass gatherings of people, and in the process shutting down local sporting events. The idea that the 2019-20 NHL season could be interrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic one month before the Stanley Cup playoffs was far from his mind. At least it was until the first intermission that night.

There are two problems, however. One is that neither the Seattle Seahawks nor the Houston Texans are openly shopping Wilson and Watson at this point, so it seems highly unlikely a deal could come together before the start of free agency.

Hill was better than most outsiders expected as a passer, completing 71.9% of his throws for 834 yards, four TDs and two interceptions in those four starts. But he needs to improve his anticipation and decision-making once he gets past his first or second read. And he definitely needs to improve his ball security after fumbling 10 times and losing five of them in 2020. Most of his trouble came when he held onto the ball too long in the pocket -- a surprise, considering his outstanding rushing ability.New York Jets Face masks
