Posted on 03 March 2017 by KWBG

MEXICO CITY (AP) — Veterans Phil Mickelson and Lee Westwood are among a six-way tie for the lead heading into the second round of the WGC Mexico Championship. Mickelson and Westwood opened with 4-under 67s, as did PGA champion Jimmy Walker, Torrey Pines winner Jon Rahm, Ryan Moore and Ross Fisher. Just one shot back is Rory McIlroy, who can go back to No. 1 in the world rankings with a victory.

UNDATED (AP) — Red Sox lefty David Price will consult with specialists after experiencing soreness in his left elbow and forearm. Manager John Farrell said Price threw 38 pitches in a two-inning simulated game Tuesday and felt discomfort the following day, causing Price to be scratched from his first spring training start. Price went 17-9 with a 3.99 ERA in a major league-leading 35 starts last season, his first after signing a seven-year, $210 million contract with the Red Sox.

CLEVELAND (AP) — Andrew Bogut (BOH’-guht) has officially signed with the Cavaliers and is expected to make his team debut Monday against Miami in Cleveland. Bogut spent the previous four seasons with the Golden State Warriors, who could be on a collision course to play the Cavs for the third straight year. He was let go by Philadelphia last week after being acquired in a trade with Dallas, where he averaged three points and 8.3 rebounds in 26 games this season.

DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — Dolphins general manager Chris Grier says quarterback Ryan Tannehill is expected to be ready for the offseason program after missing the final four games of last season because of a sprained left knee. The team spent several weeks after the season assessing the extent of Tannehill’s ACL and MCL sprains before ruling out surgery.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles Kings Hall of Fame play-by play broadcaster Bob Miller is retiring after 44 years and 3,351 games with the team. The 78-year-old Miller plans to call the Kings’ last home game on April 8 against Chicago and their regular-season finale at Anaheim the following night to end his career. Miller has dealt with three medical issues over the past two years, including a mild stroke during the NHL All-Star weekend in January.
