The New York Yankees raised their available signing bonus money for Japanese star Shohei Ohtani to $3.5 million, acquiring $250,000 in pool money from the Miami Marlins on Monday for left-hander Caleb Smith and first baseman Garrett Cooper.
Booker has 28 rushes and 10 targets on 92 snaps during that span. C.J. Anderson sits at 32 carries and five targets on 69 plays. Jamaal Charles, who played a season-low four snaps against Cincinnati, has 15 carries and five targets on 39 plays during the three games. Booker appears to have emerged as Denver’s lead back, though it’s possible that changes following the firing of offensive coordinator Mike McCoy and promotion of Bill Musgrave. Until Musgrave’s plan is unveiled, Booker and Anderson are no more than uninspiring flex options. Charles should remain on waivers.
Ausmus managed the Tigers from 2014-17; the Tigers announced in September that the team would not extend his contract.
Also Tuesday, the Angels named Josh Paul their new bench coach.
Paul spent the past three seasons as the Yankees’ catching coordinator. Before that, he was a scout and minor league manager for New York, where Eppler spent over a decade in the front office.
The 42-year-old Paul was a catcher for the Angels from 2004-05. He played in 321 career big league games with four franchises from 1999-2007.
Paul replaces Dino Ebel, who will return to his previous job as the Angels’ third-base coach after four seasons as manager Mike Scioscia’s bench coach.
Ebel replaces Ron Roenicke, who left the Angels to become new Red Sox manager Alex Cora’s bench coach.
If the 49ers want to turn things around, it’s going to take a quarterback other than Brian Hoyer or C.J. Beathard. Hoyer was benched for Beathard after completing 58 percent of his passes and throwing as many interceptions as touchdowns. Beathard hasn’t been much better, with five turnovers and a quarterback rating of 65.2 through three games, a number that’s even worse than Hoyer’s.
So we can make the shoes to exactly what we want. It’s a shoe similar to a Chuck Taylor, which is one of the most durable shoes of all time. There’s a guy on the ground. We gave him all the specifics we want. It’s the best way for us to get the kids on the shoes as soon as possible. We gave the money straight to the source, and the shoes are being made right away. What we say is what we’re going to do, and it’s getting done.
“That was our opportunity to punch our ticket to go to Homestead.”
As Busch celebrated, Elliott fumed and rammed into Hamlin on the cool-down lap. The two drivers got out of their cars and exchanged words before driving to pit road.
Derek Carr (11:50 a.m.): Weather will have some impact on Carr’s effectiveness in today’s game in Buffalo, but what could more than compensate for any windy or wet conditions is the absence of two Buffalo starters in the secondary — S Jordan Poyer and CB E.J. Gaines.
Dontrelle Inman (11:45 a.m.): The wide receiver, acquired by the Bears from the Chargers earlier this week, is not active for Chicago today. Give him a little more time to learn the team’s playbook, and perhaps he’ll produce going forward.
Former Florida Gators defensive tackle Caleb Brantley is facing a misdemeanor battery charge. The charge stems from an altercation with a woman on April 13 that ended with Brantley allegedly knocking the woman unconscious.
According to the police report, Brantley argued with the victim after he reportedly made crude comments to her. The woman pushed Brantley, and he reacted by punching the 56, 120-pound woman in the face. The woman lost consciousness and suffered dental injuries that will require a root canal to repair.

Washington drafted Griffin with the second pick, and he went on to win the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year. After Griffin injured his knee in the late stages of rookie campaign, his production sharply declined, which led to Washington letting him walk in free agency in 2016. In retrospect, Washington made a bad move by giving the Rams four picks for a quarterback who ended up as a one-hit wonder. Washington also drafted quarterback Kirk Cousins in the fourth round that year, and he is now the teams franchise quarterback.
But this draft consisted of many questionable picks. The Cleveland Browns whiffed on both their first-round picks: running back Trent Richardson and quarterback Brandon Weeden. The following year, Cleveland ended up shipping Richardson to the Indianapolis Colts for a 2014 first-round pick. The 26-year-old running back battled weight and production issues over his career and hasnt played a regular season game since 2014.
