June 17: RHP Tylor Megill (right shoulder strain) placed on 15-day IL; RHP Adonis Medina recalled from Triple-A

Megill was placed on the 15-day injured list on Friday after he was diagnosed with a right shoulder strain following his fourth-inning exit in Thursday’s series finale.

The Mets recalled righty Adonis Medina from Triple-A Syracuse to bolster New York’s pitching staff. — Bill Ladson

June 17: RHP Jake Reed optioned to Triple-A; RHP Tommy Hunter recalled

Reed was optioned to Syracuse following a poor showing vs. the Brewers on Thursday. With the callup, Hunter is reunited with manager Buck Showalter. They worked together when both were with the Orioles from 2011-15. — Bill Ladson

RHP Max Scherzer (strained left oblique)

Expected return:
Late June or early July

Scherzer threw a bullpen session on June 18 without any problems, according to a team spokesperson. The next step for Scherzer will be to have a rehab start once the Mets decide where they want him to pitch. The issue cropped up when Scherzer felt a “zing” in his left side during a May 18 start vs. the Cardinals. That discomfort turned out to be a moderate to high-grade internal oblique strain, which typically requires a six-to-eight-week recovery process. While rehabbing in Florida, Scherzer was bitten on his right hand by one of his dogs, but the resulting injury was mild and did not affect his timeline. — Bill Ladson/Anthony DiComo (Last updated: June 18)

RHP Tylor Megill (right shoulder strain)

Expected return:
Sometime in August

Megill underwent an MRI Friday morning and was diagnosed with a strain. The immediate plan is for Megill to be shut down from throwing and re-evaluated in four weeks. — Bill Ladson (Last updated: June 17)

C James McCann (broken hamate bone in left wrist)

Expected return:
Late June

McCann began a Minor League rehab assignment on June 16 for Double-A Binghamton less than a month after undergoing May 17 surgery to repair his wrist. If all continues to go well, McCann should be able to hit the front end of his six-to-eight-week timeline and return to the Mets by the end of the month. Until then, Tomás Nido and Patrick Mazeika will continue to split time behind the plate, with Nido receiving the bulk of the work. – Anthony DiComo (Last updated: June 16)

RHP Colin Holderman (right shoulder impingement)

Expected return: July

Four days after uncharacteristically walking three batters in a June 7 game against the Padres, Holderman landed on the IL. He underwent an MRI on June 14 that confirmed the impingement, and a team spokesman said that “we consider him week-to-week at this time.” The Mets will be careful with Holderman, a rookie whose recent velocity jump gives him a bright future in the bullpen. — Anthony DiComo (Last updated: June 14)

OF Travis Jankowski (fractured left fourth metacarpal)

Expected return: Early July

Jankowski is ahead of schedule in his rehab after fracturing a bone in his left hand on May 25. Originally scheduled to miss six-to-eight weeks, the backup outfielder now hopes to return as soon as July 1, though he recognizes it could take a bit longer than that. Jankowski underwent surgery on May 27, two days after injuring his finger while making a diving catch in the outfield. — Anthony DiComo (Last updated: June 14)

RHP Jacob deGrom (stress reaction in right scapula)

Expected return: Early to mid-July

deGrom had a bullpen session on June 17 and it went well, according to Showalter. deGrom hasn’t pitched in a game since being diagnosed with a stress reaction in his right shoulder at the end of Spring Training. — Bill Ladson/Anthony DiComo (Last updated: June 17)

RHP Trevor May (stress reaction in right humerus)

Expected return:
Early July

Following a disappointing May 2 outing in which he allowed two runs, May said he hadn’t felt right since missing time early this season due to a sore right triceps muscle. He subsequently underwent testing that revealed a stress reaction in the lower portion of his humerus, the bone that runs from the shoulder to the elbow. May was shut down for four weeks before restarting a light throwing program on June 10. The rest of his rehab program should take another several weeks, but May isn’t eligible to return until at least July 2 anyway. — Anthony DiComo (Last updated: June 14)

RHP Sean Reid-Foley (recovery from Tommy John surgery)

Expected return:
2023

An MRI taken May 1 revealed a right UCL tear for Reid-Foley, who had departed the previous night’s game due to elbow discomfort. After receiving his test results, Reid-Foley consulted with additional doctors before deciding to undergo season-ending Tommy John surgery on May 10. That typically requires a 12- to 18-month rehab, putting Reid-Foley on track to return around midseason 2023. — Anthony DiComo (Last updated: May 10)

LHP Joey Lucchesi (recovery from Tommy John surgery)

Expected return:
August or September

An MRI taken on Lucchesi’s left elbow last June revealed a significant UCL tear, which required Tommy John surgery. The recovery typically takes between 12 and 18 months, putting Lucchesi on the borderline for a 2022 return. Mets officials have told him that if he recovers as scheduled, he should be able to help at least in a relief role before season’s end. — Anthony DiComo (Last updated: April 7)

RHP John Curtiss (recovery from Tommy John surgery)

Expected return: 2023

The Mets signed Curtiss on April 6 understanding that he will miss the entire 2022 season rehabbing from Tommy John. They hold an option on his contract for 2023, so if they’re pleased with what they see, they will exercise that and make him a part of their bullpen next season. Curtiss underwent surgery last September while he was in the Brewers’ organization. — Anthony DiComo (Last updated: April 7)

Rooney resigns as manager of relegated Derby

Rooney resigns as manager of relegated Derby

Wayne Rooney has told Derby County that he wishes to leave his role as manager with immediate effect, the club announced Friday.

The news comes after Derby were relegated from the Championship to third-tier League One this past season having being handed two separate points deductions for entering administration and breaching financial rules earlier in the season. The club have also been operating under a transfer embargo.

“Over the course of the Summer I have been closely following developments regarding the ownership of Derby County,” Rooney wrote in a club statement.

“Today I met with the administrators to inform them of my decision that it was time for me to leave the club. In fairness to them, they tried tremendously hard to change my decision but my mind was made up.

“My time at the club has been a rollercoaster of emotions, both highs and lows, but I have to say that I have enjoyed the challenge.

“Personally, I feel the club now needs to be led by someone with fresh energy and not affected by the events that have happened over the last eighteen months. I will remember my time at Derby with great pride and affection and would like to thank all my staff, players and of course the fans for their incredible support. I will never forget you and hope to see you all again in the near future and in happier times.”

Last week, American businessman Chris Kirchner withdrew his bid to purchase the club.

“Finally, I am aware that the club still have interested parties who wish to take over the running of the club,” Rooney added. “To them I say this, Derby County is a great club with a great history and great fans. I wish you all the best and much success for the future.”

A spokesperson for Derby’s administrators admitted they were disappointed with Rooney’s decision.

“The joint administrators are very disappointed that Wayne has taken the difficult decision to leave the club and we have spent some time today trying to persuade him to stay but understand his reasons for wanting to go,” they wrote. “We are extremely grateful to him for his excellent work in the face of challenging on-field circumstances in the 2021/22 season and admire the manner in which he has led the team, the club and the local community through various off-field issues.

“The joint administrators recognise that staff and supporters will be frustrated and equally disappointed by this news, but we all wish him, his wife Coleen and their four boys every success in the future and we are sure they will always be welcomed back.

“All parties recognise the need to conclude a sale of the business and assets of the Club, as a matter of urgency and the joint administrators wish to reconfirm that Wayne’s departure will not affect those ongoing, positive discussions.”

Despite the turmoil off the pitch and a 21-point deduction, the former England and Manchester United captain guided Derby to an impressive run of form, and relegation wasn’t confirmed until there were only three matches remaining.

It has been a tough start to Rooney’s managerial career after he decided to cut his Major League Soccer playing days short at D.C. United to join Derby and become head coach in November 2020.

After the club’s relegation, Rooney said he would remain at the club next season only if there were new owners.

Source: Blackhawks to hire Richardson as coach

      Greg Wyshynski is ESPN’s senior NHL writer.

Luke Richardson is expected to become the new head coach of the Chicago Blackhawks, an NHL source confirmed to ESPN on Friday.

Richardson would replace interim coach Derek King, who went 27-33-10 after taking over for Jeremy Colliton 12 games into the season. Richardson, an assistant coach for the Montreal Canadiens, was offered the head-coaching job this week, sources said.

The Blackhawks are waiting on some contract details to be finalized, and the expectation is that Richardson will be formally announced as the coach next week.

Daily Faceoff first reported on Richardson’s expected hiring.

Richardson, 53, has been an assistant coach on the Canadiens’ bench for four seasons, working with three different head coaches. Before that, he was the head coach of the AHL Binghamton Senators, the top affiliate for the Ottawa Senators, from 2012 to 2016 and worked as an assistant for Ottawa and the New York Islanders.

In the 2021 Stanley Cup playoffs, Richardson took over the Canadiens bench when coach Dominique Ducharme entered the NHL COVID-19 protocol. He went 3-3 and guided the Canadiens past the Vegas Golden Knights to advance to the Stanley Cup Final. Ducharme returned for Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Final, which the Canadiens lost in five games to the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Richardson played 21 years in the NHL as a rugged defenseman, most prominently with the Edmonton Oilers and Philadelphia Flyers.

The move would leave the Boston Bruins, Detroit Red Wings and Winnipeg Jets as the only teams without a head coach.

No. 1 recruit Williams commits to Mulkey, LSU

Mikaylah Williams, the top-ranked recruit in the Class of 2023, according to ESPN HoopGurlz, has committed to Kim Mulkey’s LSU program, she announced Friday.

Williams, a 6-foot-1 guard from Bossier City, Louisiana, chose LSU over Ole Miss, Baylor, Duke and Texas A&M.

“In order to take my game to the next level and to continue to learn and grow as a young woman, there’s only one place where I’ve wanted to be. Home,” Williams said in her video announcement. “I’ve decided I’ll be attending the Louisiana State University.”

Williams won gold with Team USA in the 2021 FIBA 3×3 U18 World Cup, where she was MVP, and recently earned a spot on the U.S. team for the FIBA U17 World Cup, which will compete July 9-17 in Hungary.

She was named the Gatorade Louisiana Girls Basketball Player of the Year in March after averaging 22.8 points, 8.0 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 2.2 steals as a junior at Parkway High.

With Mulkey in her second season in Baton Rouge, the Tigers are looking to propel themselves back into the conversation as title contenders and to return to the Final Four for the first time since 2008. LSU fell to Ohio State in the second round of the NCAA tournament last season.

With a host of seniors departing the program, Mulkey was active in the transfer portal, bringing in Angel Reese from Maryland, LaDazhia Williams from Missouri, Kateri Poole from Ohio State, Jasmine Carson from West Virginia and top juco transfer Last-Tear Poa from Northwest Florida State College to join a 2022 recruiting class ranked No. 17 in the nation by ESPN.
