Panthers' optional offseason workouts begin on Monday and QB Cam Newton will be traveling from Auburn for ankle rehab during parts of the next few weeks.
Newton is in a walking boot following ankle surgery so he was never expected to be ready for workouts or OTA in May, for that matter. He'll be doing his own rehab for the time being and will rejoin the team when he is ready.ANALYST: Howard Bender
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. He has yet to return to that form he exhibited when he was a starter in Minnesota and the Yankees have released the 33-year old. Baker could get signed by a team who believes that they can jump start his spiraling career. Analysis: Colby Conway
