#1 doubleheader at Colorado when it seemed as if the team would be swept in the twinbill von MJL456 09.04.2018 09:55

MINNEAPOLIS -- The Minnesota Timberwolves have secured their veteran shooting guard. They finalized a deal to send away his predecessor at the position to further enhance this fast-changing roster under new basketball boss Flip Saunders. After agreeing to the framework of the deal the day before, the Wolves acquired Kevin Martin via a sign-and-trade manoeuvr with the Oklahoma City Thunder on Thursday night and dealt Luke Ridnour to the Milwaukee Bucks. The Bucks also got a 2014 second-round draft pick from the Wolves. The Thunder got the draft rights to second-round draft pick Szymon Szewczyk from the Bucks. The Thunder also sent an undisclosed amount of cash to both the Wolves and the Bucks. The Wolves needed to trade Ridnour for flexibility to sign small forward Corey Brewer, their former first-round pick who played last season for the Denver Nuggets, and to re-sign small forward Chase Budinger. Those deals were expected to be done on Friday. Coach Rick Adelman was fond of Ridnour, who started all 82 games for the Wolves last season while playing out of position for a small, injury-ravaged team. He came to Minnesota after two seasons with Milwaukee. "Sometimes you have to give up things you dont really want to, but you have to look at where you want to go at the end," Saunders said. The Timberwolves were last in the league in 3-point shooting last season. The 6-foot-7 Martin shot a career-high 42.6 per cent from behind the arc with the Thunder. He has averaged 20-plus points per game in five of his nine seasons in the NBA. His production decreased with the Thunder, but Saunders chalked that up to the presence of Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook. Saunders also brushed off any concern about Martins defence, praising his shooting touch as a defensive weapon of its own. "As Coach said, he feels in his system we can chalk in 18 points," Saunders said, referring to Martins career scoring average. The 6-2 Ridnour had the most efficient season of his career with the Bucks in 2009-10, setting personal bests in field goal and free throw shooting. "Luke didnt want to continue playing as a 2 guard," Saunders said. "He wanted to be in a situation where he thought he could get really extended playing time at the point guard." The Wolves watched small forward Andrei Kirilenko, who earlier opted out of his contract, agree to terms on a new deal with the Brooklyn Nets. But they added another veteran to the roster by agreeing to terms on a two-year, $3.2 million contract with power forward Ronny Turiaf, according to his agent, Mark Bartelstein. "The direction Flips got the team going and the style that Rick plays is something he was really excited about," Bartelstein said in a phone interview.

WASHINGTON -- The surprises keep coming from first-year Los Angeles Dodgers manager Dave Roberts.First, it was a National League Division Series that included three catchers. Now comes news that rookie Andrew Toles will start in left field in the opening game of the series Friday against the Washington Nationals at Nationals Park.Is he starting? Clayton Kershaw asked at his regular pre-start news conference Thursday. Thats awesome.The conversation was brief between Toles and Roberts.Youre in left field tomorrow, like he normally says, Toles said of the interaction when Roberts told him the news.Starts against right-handed pitchers have become commonplace for Toles over the past six weeks, so with Max Scherzer on the mound for the Nationals on Friday, Toles was somewhat expecting the assignment.It felt pretty good [to hear it], Toles said. I just want to stay focused and go out there and do my best really.He was out of baseball last year, when he was released by the Tampa Bay Rays organization, but Toles story has been one of resilience. He was signed by the Dodgers in 2015 after the minor league season had ended and was not invited to big league camp this spring. He started the season at Single-A Rancho Cucamonga and was in Los Angeles by the start of July. He played 22 games at Rancho Cucamonga, 43 at Double-A Tulsa and 17 at Triple-A Oklahoma City before the Dodgers called him up to the major leagues.Never fazed by the situation, or so it seemed, Toles gave the Dodgers steady production. He supplied a rare dose of speed on the bases and added a plus-throwing arm into the proceedings. If a deficiency showed, it was with defense, other than throwing the ball.Toles had a pair of three-hit games this season, the first in his 10th career game. He was batting .397 in his first 58 at-bats through the end of Augustt and then cooled a bit in September.dddddddddddd He ended August with a pinch-hit grand slam that gave the Dodgers a victory in the second game of a doubleheader at Colorado when it seemed as if the team would be swept in the twinbill.I mean, to be honest, I didnt even know we had a guy named Andrew Toles in the minor leagues, Kershaw said. To meet him and understand where hes been and come from, and the type of guy he is, the type of player he is, its pretty special to see for sure.Toles batted .213 in 47 at-bats in September and dealt with a sore wrist as the regular season came to a close. He had just eight at-bats on the final road trip, after the team had clinched the division.Roberts did not specify any other part of the Game 1 lineup, only saying, Its going to look a lot like weve done it.Considering that the Nationals will have right-hander Scherzer on the mound, the lineup sounds like this:?Yasmani Grandal at catcher, and an infield of Adrian Gonzalez at first base, Chase Utley at second, Corey Seager at shortstop and Justin Turner at third. In addition to Toles in the outfield, Joc Pederson is expected to play center field, with Josh Reddick likely in right field. Kershaw will pitch.Seager and Toles are two of seven rookies on the Dodgers NLDS roster; a number of injuries forced the club to give others a chance this season. Many of those young players made the best of their opportunities, and Toles was one of them.We all feel like were a part of the team, Toles said. We said it in the meeting the other day. Its going to take all 25 of us to win a world championship. I feel personally, me and all the other rookies, we dont feel like rookies. Were just a part of the team.
