AP source says Phils land McCutchen…Jays cut Tulo…Big Ben has bruised ribs…Cavs lose Thompson

LAS VEGAS (AP) – A person familiar with the negotiations tells The Associated Press that the Philadelphia Phillies have worked out a three-year, $50 million contract with five-time All-Star outfielder Andrew McCutchen, subject to a successful physical. The 32-year-old McCutchen hit .255 with 20 home runs and 65 RBIs in 155 games for the San Francisco Giants and New York Yankees this season. McCutchen was an All-Star each season from 2011-15, and the National League MVP in 2013.

LAS VEGAS (AP) – The Toronto Blue Jays have released oft-injured shortstop Troy Tulowitzki with two years and $38 million remaining on his contract. The 34-year-old Tulowitzki hasn’t played in the majors since July 2017, missing all of last season following right ankle surgery performed last spring. He has been a disappointment since coming to the Blue Jays in a trade with Colorado, batting .250 with 31 home runs and 105 RBIs in 197 games.

PITTSBURGH (AP) – Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger¬† believes he’ll play Sunday against New England despite bruised ribs suffered in Sunday’s loss at Oakland. Roethlisberger took a shot in the ribs and missed most of the second half of Sunday’s game before leading a potential game-tying drive that ended with a botched field-goal attempt by Chris Boswell. Head coach Mike Tomlin indicated pain management will be the biggest concern.

CLEVELAND (AP) – Cleveland Cavaliers forward Tristan Thompson could miss a month with a sprained left foot suffered in Monday’s loss in Milwaukee. He made 6 of 7 shots and added six rebounds in 18 minutes before he twisted his foot in the third quarter. Thompson is averaging 12 points and a career-high 11.6 rebounds in 27 games. The Cavs are also without All-Star forward Kevin Love, who is recovering from toe surgery and isn’t expected to return until sometime in January.

UNDATED (AP) – An autopsy report states that ex-Clemson running back C.J. Fuller died of a blood clot that lodged in an artery in his lungs. Pickens County Coroner Kandy Kelley said in a report released yesterday that the 22-year-old Fuller died from a “Pulmonary thromboembolism and deep vein thrombosis.” Fuller died on Oct. 3. The report said Fuller had surgery on his leg on Sept. 19, two weeks before he died.
