Suns President of Basketball Operations Lon Babby said Eric Bledsoe is getting close to making his return, "He's progressing as expected. We're still optimistic that he'll return some time after the All-Star break."
Yankees grant RHP Scott Baker his unconditional release.
Baker was enjoying a serviceable career when he was with the Twins, but Tommy John surgery in 2012 derailed his career.

Baker could get signed by a team who believes that they can jump start his spiraling career. Analysis: Colby Conway
