Alex Wood takes step toward rejoining Dodgers rotation

LOS ANGELES — There were any number of ways for Alex Wood to tell things were not right in his first start this season. First of all, he gave up three runs on three hits and three walks and lasted just three innings against the San Francisco Giants that day. And his fastball velocity averaged less than 90 mph. Then there were the more sophisticated metrics and tracking that the Dodgers use on every pitcher every time he throws. “My arm slot dropped about 6 inches from my last start in summer cam...

Astros Coach Gets 20-Game Suspension, A’s Laureano 6 After Benches-Clearing Brawl

OAKLAND (AP) – Houston Astros hitting coach Álex Cintrón received a 20-game suspension and a fine Tuesday for his role in a benches-clearing brawl at Oakland, while Athletics outfielder Ramon Laureano was given a six-game suspension and a fine. Cintrón’s suspension is the longest for an on-field transgression in 15 years, since Texas pitcher Kenny Rogers received 20 games for his altercation with two cameramen in 2005. “I accept MLB’s suspension and will learn from this,” Cintrón said in a state...

The rise and fall of Elizabeth Holmes, the Theranos founder whose federal fraud trial is delayed until 2021

Elizabeth Holmes dropped out of Stanford University at 19 to start blood-testing startup Theranos, and grew the company to a valuation of $9 billion. But it all came crashing down when the shortcomings and inaccuracies of the company's technology were exposed, and Theranos and Holmes were charged with "massive fraud."  If convicted, Holmes could face up to 20 years in prison. A California judge initially set an August 2020 start date for the federal trial, but the case has been delayed until ...

Dodgers place Joe Kelly on IL, wait for Alex Wood and Corey Seager to return

LOS ANGELES — Joe Kelly will be on the injured list as he awaits the outcome of his appeal of an eight-game suspension. The Dodgers placed Kelly on the IL on Monday with shoulder inflammation. The right-hander appeared in seven of the Dodgers’ first 16 games, pitching 6 1/3 innings without being charged with a run, striking out five, walking five and giving up five hits.

Astros, A’s Clear Benches, Empty Seats; Oakland Wins 9th Straight

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Benches cleared and even the stands emptied during Oakland’s 7-2 victory over the Astros on Sunday, with tempers flaring at last between the AL West rivals months after Houston’s sign-stealing scandal was brought to light by Oakland pitcher Mike Fiers. The Athletics’ ninth straight win was far overshadowed by what erupted in the seventh inning at the Coliseum. Oakland’s Ramon Laureano got hit by a pitch — for the third time in the three-game series — this one by Humberto C...

VenoStent has a new technology to improve outcomes for dialysis patients

Timothy Bouré and his co-founder Geoffrey Lucks were both near broke when they moved to Dallas to join the first accelerator they entered after forming VenoStent, a company that aims to improve outcomes for dialysis patients. Failed dialysis surgeries occur in roughly 55% to 65% of patients with end-stage renal disease, according to the company. Caring for these patients can cost the Medicare and Medicaid Services system roughly $2 billion per year — and Bouré and Lucks believed that they’d come...

Robert Woods, Cooper Kupp work to give Rams’ passing game a boost

Throwing, catching and running should be the easiest football skills to practice. Two guys and a ball, and you’re good. Ten-year-olds can do it in the backyard. It’s harder if you’re grown-up kids with the speed of Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods or the passing range of Jared Goff, if NFL practice fields are closed because of the coronavirus pandemic, and if people guarding local schoolyards don’t care that you’re L.A. Rams. So Kupp and Woods, the Rams’ 1,000-yard receivers, spent the offseason bou...
