Report: Wolves hope to sign Butler to extension
After snapping a 13-year playoff Womens Edgar Martinez Jersey drought, Minnesota is all too eager to keep its core intact. According to Marc Stein of The New York Times, the Timberwolves hope to ink Jimmy Butler to a maximum four-year contract this offseason. Stein tweeted:
Lance Lynn (R), 33 percent, Minnesota Twins at Chicago Cubs: It was a tough April for Lynn, as the weather and travel interrupted the veteran’s routine. As the weather warmed and his schedule normalized, Lynn has reverted to form, a middle-of-the-rotation sort, giving the Twins innings and keeping the club in the game. Since May 22, Lynn is sporting a 2.40 ERA and 1.23 WHIP, fanning 40 with 18 walks over 41.1 innings. He has benefited from allowing just one long ball in that span. For the past month, the Cubs have been an average offense versus righties, and http://www.authenticseattlemarinersshop.com/Edgar-Martinez-Jersey they will be without Ed Dickson Authentic Jersey Kris Bryant, who is still nursing a sore left shoulder.
Steven Matz (L), 16 percent, New York Mets at Miami Marlins: A few years ago, http://www.panthersofficialonlinestores.com/panthers+ed+dickson+jersey Matz was considered a key cog in an up-and-coming Mets rotation. Several health issues later, he’s trying to re-establish himself while shaking the injury-prone label. So far so good, as the 27-year old lefty made 15 starts over the first half, already two more than last year. He has a nice draw to kick off the second half, taking on a Marlins offense ranked above only the Mets in terms of weighted on-base average (wOBA) versus lefties.
Derrick Rose’s reunion tour with coach Tom Thibodeau will apparently continue.
According to multiple reports, the former MVP winner Rose has agreed to a 1-year deal and will re-sign with the Minnesota Timberwolves.
Rose was waived by the Utah Jazz on Feb. 10 after the team acquired him in a trade with the Cleveland Cavaliers on Feb. 8. The Wolves officially added Rose on March 8 of last season. Since Rose was waived before March 1, he became eligible to join the Timberwolves’ playoff roster.
He averaged 5.8 points and 1.2 assists in nine regular-season games last season, then upped his averages to 14.2 ppg and 2.6 apg in Minnesota’s five first-round playoff games. Here’s more from Jerry Zgoda of the Star Tribuneon Rose and the Wolves:
The Timberwolves’ top target when the NBA’s free-agency period began at 11 p.m. Saturday, former league MVP Derrick Rose reached agreement with them on a one-year contract in the hour before the clock struck midnight, according to a source with knowledge of the deal.
Guys, we’re already to the eighth-best outcome and we’ve only got nine out of 27 accounted for! This is going to get dark.
