A Jazz set record…Longest MLB deal…Steelers’ Tomlin ill

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Donovan Mitchell had 23 points and eight assists as the Utah Jazz enjoyed a record-breaking performance from long range in a 132-110 victory over the Charlotte Hornets. Utah set a franchise mark for 3-pointers with 28, including 19 off the bench — the most by any team’s backups in NBA history, according to STATS. Joe Ingles and Georges Niang led the way, making a career-high seven 3s apiece. Charlotte gave up 54 total 3-pointers in two games against Utah this season. Gordon Hayward and LaMelo Ball scored 21 points apiece to lead the Hornets.

SAN DIEGO (AP) — Fernando Tatis Jr.’s $340 million, 14-year contract has been finalized by the San Diego Padres, the longest deal in baseball history. Tatis had been eligible for salary arbitration after this season and for free agency after the 2024 season. The length of his contract exceeds the $325 million, 13-year agreement between Miami and Giancarlo Stanton and the $330 million, 13-year contract between Bruce Harper and Philadelphia. He is the son for former infielder Fernando Tatis.

SEATTLE (AP) — Seattle Mariners CEO Kevin Mather has resigned after video surfaced of him expressing his views about some players and club operations. Mariners Chairman John Stanton says Mather’s comments were inappropriate and do not represent the views of the franchise. Mather’s resignation is effective immediately. Stanton will take on the roles of CEO and team president on an interim basis. Mather issued an apology for his comments, which were made Feb. 5 to the Bellevue, Washington, Breakfast Rotary Club and were posted online over the weekend.

CLEVELAND (AP) — The Cleveland Indians could have as many as 10,000 fans at home games this season. Gov. Mike DeWine says it’s likely professional sports teams could accommodate up to 30% capacity at their venues this spring. The Cincinnati Reds and Columbus Crew would also be affected. The Indians were not allowed to have fans last season due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the loss of revenue for ticket sales, parking and concessions dealt the club an economic blow. The Indians have been working with Major League Baseball and the Cleveland Clinic to develop a safety plan to welcome fans back.

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin is dealing with COVID-19. Tomlin said Monday that he’s experienced “minimal symptoms” and remains in “good health.” The 48-year-old Tomlin did not disclose when he tested positive for the novel coronavirus. The team sent employees and staff home last Wednesday as a precaution after someone in the facility tested positive. Tomlin said he expects to be back in the office “soon” and will continue to work virtually.

Homa wins at Riviera…Woods iffy about Masters

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Max Homa captured the PGA’s Genesis Invitational in a one-hole playoff against Tony Finau (FEE’-now). The win was secured just minutes after Homa missed a 3-foot birdie putt on 18 to extend the tournament. Homa closed with a 5-under 66 and played the final 26 holes without a bogey for a minus-12 total.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Tiger Woods says he isn’t sure if he’ll be able to compete in the Masters this spring. Woods said during the CBS broadcast of the Genesis Invitational that he doesn’t know when he will return from a fifth back surgery. The former No. 1 player had a microdiscectomy Dec. 23 and says he’s a little stiff.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Christopher Bell chased down Joey Logano on the winding Daytona road course for his first career Cup victory and a coveted spot in NASCAR’s playoffs. Bell was competing in his second race driving for JGR, which loaned him out to Leavine Family Racing last year for his rookie season. Logano had to settle for second after building a decent lead late in the race.

UNDATED (AP) — Colorado Rockies outfielder Ian Desmond has decided to opt out for a second straight season. The Gold Glove center fielder announced on his Instagram account that his “desire to be with my family is greater than my desire to go back and play baseball under these circumstances.” No amount of lobbying by Rockies manager Bud Black could persuade the 35-year-old Desmond, who was scheduled to make $8 million this season.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Former Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Stan Williams has died at 84 after being in hospice care due to the effects of cardio-pulmonary illness. The two-time All-Star helped the Dodgers win the 1959 World Series and was part of a powerhouse Los Angeles rotation that included Sandy Koufax, Don Drysdale and Johnny Podres from 1960-62. Known as the “Big Hurt” because of his penchant for pitching inside, Williams had a record of 109-94 and a 3.48 ERA during his 14-year career in the majors.
