As the 2020 season began, Tatis took over. He was a leading MVP candidate entering September in a shortened season, hitting .313/.395/.660 with a league-leading 13 homers while dropping highlight after highlight. Tatis' breakout season ended with disappointment due to a slow final month of the season and the Padres' sweep at the hands of the Los Angeles Dodgers in the National League Division Series, but his status as a superstar was already set, especially on social media.Arizona Diamondbacks Face Masks

MLB took heat for its use of DNA testing in the Dominican Republic, which was decried as both invasive and possibly illegal, forcing the league to hit pause on the practice before resuming it in 2010 under new guidelines. The policy has been revised further since, with the league stressing that the DNA test is voluntary and only requested when there is significant doubt about a player’s identity. Additionally, MLB now covers the cost of the test, no longer requiring players to pay as it originally did.
With the franchise tag for running backs at $8.655 million in 2021, the Packers could have paid out $19.041 million over the next two years, given the 20-percent raise Jones would have earned if tagged again in 2022. They also would have been protected against injury or ineffectiveness in 2021, allowing them a way out on a one-year, seven-figure deal. It ultimately would make little sense for the Packers to commit to paying more than $19.041 million over the next two years.NFL Pittsburgh Steelers Team Face Coverings
Wilson’s agent has identified the Saints as a preferred destination if he gets traded, so if Wilson wants to come to New Orleans, the Saints (and New Orleans’ mayor) would welcome him with open arms. And they would make an aggressive offer, despite the fact they were still about $60 million over the projected salary cap as of Tuesday. The same goes for Deshaun Watson if he becomes available via trade.

In essence, that’s a five-for-one deal for the Raiders to get Wilson, considering sixth-rounders don’t often pan out. And four of the five trade chips (sorry, Mariota) would be of great value.

This seems logical as well. There is a lot of attrition in the ranks of relievers, and even without minor league teams in action last summer, teams still were able to dip into their organizational depth and transition some of their 2019 relief prospects to the majors.

The Philadelphia Eagles have agreed to trade quarterback Carson Wentz to the Indianapolis Colts for a 2021 third-round draft pick and a conditional 2022 second-round pick that could turn into a first-rounder, league sources told ESPN. The Eagles will receive the 85th overall pick in this year's draft, and the conditional second-rounder can become a first-round pick based on Wentz's playing time, according to sources. Wentz needs to play at least 75% of the Colts' offensive snaps for the 2022 conditional pick to convey to a first-rounder, according to sources. The pick also could become a first-rounder if Wentz plays at least 70% of the snaps and the Colts reach the playoffs.

Wilson was placed on the non-football injury list in December shortly after serving a one-game suspension for violating team rules.

CB Brian Poole – The Giants had a patchwork of corners opposite Bradberry last season. Their hope is that Holmes is ready to step up into that No. 2 job. And while they could go with Isaac Yiadom or Ryan Lewis as their third corner, they could do better by signing the 28-year-old Poole, still one of the better slot corners in the league. The Jets had him on back-to-back one-year deals, the last one being for just $5 million. In a market likely to be depressed by a shrunken cap, he’s not likely to do better. With him in the slot, Holmes could play in his more natural spot on the outside.San Francisco 49ers Face Masks
