Corey Kluber was tagged for four runs on eight hits and two walks with five strikeouts over six innings against the White Sox on Friday.
Just not a good outing for the young right-hander but nothing to worry about here. He's still maintaining a strong strikeout rate, he's not walking a bunch of guys and usually he keeps the runs off the board. The White Sox just got to him here. It happens. He still comes into the break with a 3.01 ERA, a 1.20 WHIP and 142 strikeouts over 131.2 innings. ANALYST: Howard Bender
Rajon Rondo has agreed to a one-year deal with the Kings.
There was some late buzz that Rondo could join the Lakers, but instead he'll sign with the Sacramento Kings for a one-year, $10 million deal. Rondo's season fell apart in 2014 after being traded to Dallas, but expectations will still be high for the point guard due to his track record. That being said, last year's meltdown for Rondo was jarring, as his assists per game fell from 10.8 to 6.5, and his rebounds went from 7.5 to 4.5 per game. Hopefully Rondo will become better acclimated with his team in Dallas, as if he can get it together, Rondo could be a key piece in his new team's playoff bid. Analysis: Ben Diamond
Patrick Beverley has agreed to a four-year deal with the Rockets.
The 26-year old will return to Houston after spending his first three seasons with the team, averaging 8.9 points, 3 assists, and 4.2 rebounds per game over his tenure. Last season was his best as a professional, and Beverley will look to earn an expanded role in the backcourt next season after averaging 30.8 minutes last season. The four-year deal is worth $25 million. Analysis: Ben Diamond
