ATLANTA – The Braves will lose power-hitting catcher Evan Gattis for at least two weeks after an MRI revealed a bulging thoracic disk. Ted Williams Red Sox Jersey . Gattis is scheduled to receive an epidural and will be placed on the 15-day disabled list on Tuesday. The Braves provided no additional information on the severity of the injury Monday night. Gattis is hitting .290 with 16 homers and 39 RBIs in his first season as the Braves primary catcher. He played behind Brian McCann as a rookie in 2013. Gattis missed his fourth straight game Monday night with what the team had called back spasms. Rookie Christian Bethancourt made his first home start on Tuesday night against the Mets and is expected to share time with veteran Gerald Laird at catcher while Gattis is out. Blake Swihart Red Sox Jersey . The Toronto Maple Leafs were holding a news conference, so they got curious. It didnt take long for them to find out via social media that coach Randy Carlyle was coming back — with a two-year extension — and assistants Greg Cronin, Scott Gordon and Dave Farrish were being let go. Jim Rice Red Sox Jersey . So they rushed to re-sign the first baseman who general manager Ben Cherington described Friday as „a unique player.“ The World Series champions finalized a $32 million, two-year agreement Thursday with the slugging former catcher who turned into a surprisingly good defender. ST. PAUL, Minn. — The Minnesota Wild put a lot of work into summer projects the past two years. This time, theyre on track for a little less activity. Some key restricted free agents need new contracts to be retained. Another scorer would be a big help for the forward lines. The goalie situation, of course, remains in flux. Following the franchises deepest advancement in the playoffs in more than a decade, though, there are fewer holes. In 2012, the Wild were the stars of the NHL off-season by signing Zach Parise and Ryan Suter. In 2013, they had to shed several high-salaried veterans to create more space under the cap and on the roster for ready-to-contribute prospects. This time? „I just feel that this year theres not the sense of urgency that we have had in past seasons, that we have to add certain pieces in order to be more competitive,“ general manager Chuck Fletcher said Monday. He added: „This year I think we can be a little bit more patient.“ With the draft set for Friday and Saturday in Philadelphia and unrestricted free agency starting three days later, the NHL marketplace is set up for the flurry. „I think youll see a lot of movement this year. Its not a particularly strong free-agent class. I think teams will look to potentially fill their needs via the trade route,“ Fletcher said. Whether that includes the Wild, well, thats difficult to predict at this point. Fletcher said hes been fielding more calls than hes been making. „We either have players right in their prime that are key contributors on our team, or young players that are just starting their career that were really not that excited about moving. We dont have a lot of players in that 25 to 29-year-old age class that seem to be the prime trade candidates in a lot of cases,“ Fletcher said. That doesnt mean goalie Niklas Backstrom or centre Kyle Brodziak, for example, wouldnt be dealt if the Wild were to find a partner. David Price Red Sox Jersey. Backstrom is on track to be ready for training camp Sept. 18 after his latest midsection surgery. He has two more years left on his contract, and Brodziak has one. Dumping some salary would give the Wild more flexibility to pursue a high-priced unrestricted free agent, with Thomas Vanek the primary focus of outside speculation. The former University of Minnesota standout played for three teams in 2013-14, lastly with Montreal. Darcy Kuemper played his way into the starting goalie spot and is one of four restricted free agents the Wild will probably re-sign. Forwards Nino Niederreiter, Justin Fontaine and Jason Zucker are the others. Most of the unrestricted free agents will probably be let go, including goalie Ilya Bryzgalov, forwards Dany Heatley and Matt Moulson. Forward Cody McCormick and defencemen Clayton Stoner and Nate Prosser are also in this category, without any guarantee the Wild would be their highest or favourite bidder. Fletcher declined to speak about any interest or not in any of them specifically. „I think some of those guys will move on at this point. Theyre aware of where were at,“ Fletcher said. Fletcher traded Cal Clutterbuck for Niederreiter the day of the draft last year. He dealt Brent Burns for Devin Setoguchi and Charlie Coyle on draft day 2011. He acquired Brodziak in that scenario in 2009. This time, the Wild dont have a second-round pick, due to the trade for Moulson, so theyd be less interested in parting with their first-round pick, 18th overall. „Historically we havent been a team thats ever been confused with the Edmonton Oilers circa 83-85,“ Fletcher said. „If we could add a little bit more offence without sacrificing our defensive structure wed like to do that.“ Cheap Devils Jerseys Cheap Blue Jackets Jerseys Cheap Hurricanes Jerseys Cheap Maple Leafs Jerseys Cheap Lightning Jerseys Cheap Senators Jerseys Cheap Canadiens Jerseys Cheap Panthers Jerseys Cheap Red Wings Jerseys Cheap Sabres Jerseys Cheap Bruins JerseysCheap Islanders Jerseys Cheap Rangers Jerseys Cheap Flyers Jerseys Cheap Penguins Jerseys ‚ ‚ ‚
