Reliever Bruce Rondon Low Motivation Caused him to be Sent Home

Bruce Rondon, baseball, Detroit Tigers

If you are playing for a bad team getting motivated can be tough. This happens to closer Bruce Rondon he was sent home by the Detroit Tigers for the rest of the season because of his low "effort level." Tiger's Manager Brad Ausmus didn't give any other information, but catcher Alex Avila added some insight to the move.

Alex Avila said the move is "To be a big component of the team, you've got to be here, on the team." He added, "You want to put out your best effort everyday. No matter the situation."

It seems that the locker room approved what Ausmus decided to punish Rondon.

Rondon will finish the year with poor numbers. He posted a 5.81 ERA over 31 innings. Curiously, Rondon's lack of effort didn't necessarily lead to worse numbers. Since the All-Star break, Rondon has posted a 4.50 ERA. That's not great, but considering his first half ERA was 7.62, it was an improvement.

Ouch! Yankees starter Bryan Mitchell Hit in the Head, Suffered nasal fracture

NEW YORK — Yankees rookie starter Bryan Mitchell was injured on Monday night’s game when ex-Yankees shortstop, presently playing for the Twins, ripped a line drive that hit pitcher Bryan Mitchell in the face. Mitchell was bloodied and he fractured his nose and forced him out of the game. He was taken to a nearby hospital New York Presbyterian Hospital. He was diagnosed with a small nasal fracture. Team doctors would monitor him for concussion symptoms, but he was released from the hospital and returned to Yankee Stadium as his club beat the Twins 8-7 in 10 innings.

Reliever Caleb Cotham said that he was able to talk to Mitchell and said he was feeling fine. Cotham and left fielder Brett Gardner noted that they think the ball tipped the bill of Mitchell’s cap before striking him. Catcher Brian McCann was one of the first to rush to the pitcher’s side.

Mitchell, 24, was making his 3rd career big league start after the coaching staff decided on Sunday to give the rest of the rotation an extra day of rest. Entering the night, the right-hander was 0-1 with a 3.72 ERA with 20 strikeouts in 19 1/3 innings this season. Mitchell suffered an injury in a minor league weight room in late July, when he fell and bumped his head.

Nunez said, "I was very scared." "I don't even know what I think. As soon as I saw him on the mound bleeding, I was so scared, you know. I was very sad for him."

WWE is committed to embracing and celebrating individuals from all backgrounds as demonstrated by the diversity of our employees, performers and fans worldwide."

WWE has cleansed their website with everything that is related to the legendary wrestler. WWE did not gave any official reason for the removal, but everyone know that it is about the comments made by Hogan. In an audio transcript Hogan made racist slurs about his daughter Brooke's love life. Hogan was heard repeatedly using the n-word in reference to his daughter Brooke Hogan's dating life.

In a statement he said to People magazine, "Eight years ago I used offensive language during a conversation." "It was unacceptable for me to have used that offensive language; there is no excuse for it; and I apologize for having done it. This is not who I am. I believe very strongly that every person in the world is important and should not be treated differently based on race, gender, orientation, religious beliefs or otherwise. I am disappointed with myself that I used language that is offensive and inconsistent with my own beliefs."
