Yankees’ Luis Severino needs Tommy John surgery, will miss this full season

sports
The 26-year-old pitcher Tommy John have surgery,that's likely keeping him out until the beginning of next season. The injury is a big blow to the Yankees’ pitching staff. TAMPA, Fla. — Last February, the Yankees gave one of their homegrown talents, Luis Severino, a four-year contract extension worth $40 million, locking up one of the best young pitchers in baseball at an reasonable rate before free agency. A year later, it appears the Yankees might be lucky to get a season and a half out of Severino over the length of that extension. On Tuesday, Severino learned that he would require Tommy John surgery on his throwing arm, a significant blow to the rotation of a team with hopes of a World Series title this year. He will miss the rest of the 2020 season and likely some of the 2021 season....

sports
Fury, 31, drew with Wilder in Los Angeles in 2018 and he hopes to avoid controversy by securing a knockout in their rematch on Saturday. But he said similarities in his style with Floyd Mayweather - who landed 15 wins by decision in Vegas - is reason for his confidence in the judging. "That slick style works and the judges here like that," Fury told BBC Sport. "Wilder can't beat me on points, it's not possible. This is Las Vegas, not Los Angeles. "One of the greatest boxers that has ever lived in Mayweather has come from this town and they can appreciate a master boxer here. "If it goes 12 rounds I have won." Fury conducted media commitments at the offices of his US promoters Top Rank on Monday, a short drive from the Las Vegas strip where his bout with WBC world heavywei...

sports
Tottenham forward Son Heung-min will be sidelined for a "number of weeks" after fracturing his arm during Sunday's 3-2 win at Aston Villa. The South Korea international, 27, will have surgery this week. But unfortunately for the young footballer this surely means that he will miss the Champions League last-16 tie against RB Leipzig on Wednesday and Saturday's Premier League trip to Chelsea. Tottenham are already without England striker Harry Kane, who tore his hamstring at Southampton in January. Son has scored in his past five games for the club, including two goals in Sunday's win at Villa Park. His absence means 27-year-old Brazilian Lucas Moura, 22-year-old Dutchman Steven Bergwijn, signed in January, and Republic of Ireland international Troy Parrott, 18, are Spurs' only...

The pair fight in Las Vegas on 22 February for Wilder's WBC championship. Their bout in December 2018 ended in a controversial draw with the American knocking Fury down twice, although the Englishman also thought he had won. "When you get knocked down by someone, you never forget it or how they did it," said 34-year-old Wilder. Speaking on a media conference call from the United States on Tuesday, he added: "Deep down I feel he's nervous, very nervous from what happened the first time. "When you go in there for a second time it has to be stressful and you definitely can't sleep at night.
