Dickerson missed all of last season, undergoing back surgery in June after rehab was ineffective.

Margot, a prized piece of the deal that sent Craig Kimbrel to Boston in November 2015, slashed .267/.323/.426 with 13 homers and 13 stolen bases primarily from the leadoff spot last year.

My expectation is that he competes to win a Gold Glove in center field … and anchors the outfield and continues to go about his work with a 100-runs-scored mentality, Green said.

He had 10 homers in 84 games as a rookie in 2016.

But that hadn’t really manifested itself in the league until recent years. In 2015 when the game first started, there were 101 internationally born players from 37 different countries on opening day rosters around the NBA. In the 2000-01 season, that number was only 45.

And, at that time, there was so much international talent being picked prominently around the league. Andrew Wiggins, Joel Embiid, and Dante Exum were three of the top five picks in the 2014 draft as international players. It made sense to format the game that way.

The league’s talent pool has expanded and we’ve seen the game benefit from that in recent years. We’ve gotten introductions to lots of international talent and the league has put that talent on the biggest stage.

Assistant football coach and security monitor Aaron Feis, cross country coach Scott Beigel and athletic director Chris Hixon were among those killed in a shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on Wednesday.

To be very clear, I did not say the word ‘gun’ one time. Anyone out there who wrote I’m calling for gun control is very irresponsible. I did not say that once. I don’t know enough about it. I don’t know what needs to be done, but some type of change needs to happen for the better.

Rizzo, 28, is a graduate of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, where Nikolas Cruz is accused of fatally shooting 17 people last Wednesday. Rizzo’s ties to the community run deep, and he knew some of those who were killed, including a football coach and the niece of his agent.

He’s a true hero, Rizzo said of assistant football coach Aaron Feis. He has this monster coming in, shooting up the school, and he jumps in front of kids and saves their lives.
