The Lakers considered a run at Eric Bledsoe prior to signing Carlos Boozer. The Rockets and Milwaukee Bucks are other teams who have interest in Bledsoe.
Did the Lakers really choose an aging veteran forward over Eric Bledsoe? That is terrible if that is the case. The Suns offered Bledsoe a four year deal worth $48 million, which he declined for some dumb reason. The Rockets are chomping at the bit to sign a big time player after they were spurned by their free agent targets and Chandler Parsons left them for the Mavericks. ANALYST: Mark Kaplan
Stephen Strasburg left Saturday's game with a left oblique injury.
That sound you hear is the collectively banging of Strasburg owners' heads against a brick wall. The ERA is a mess, strikeouts are down and he's giving up more home runs this season than any other in his career. And now this? Ugh. He'll go for tests now and you can expect the team to update his condition soon enough. You can call him day-to-day, but you shouldn't expect him to get another start before the All Star break.

Cardinals have recalled RHP Mitch Harris from Triple-A Memphis.
Harris will get the return ticket to the majors as the Cardinals need a little bullpen depth for the weekend. He was up earlier and posted a 3.63 ERA over 17 1/3 innings. Unfortunately though, he issued too many free passes, as evidenced by his 5.19 BB/9. No one is going to continue working in the big leagues if their walk rate is higher than their strikeout rate so look for him to either right the ship or head back to the far real quick.
