Grace is love. But love of a special sort…which is kind to the unkind and generous to the ungrateful and undeserving.

    MINNESOTA - After a day off yesterday the Twins start a three-game set against Tampa Bay tonight. Kyle Gibson (7-4, 4.18 ERA) starts for Minnesota, while Tampa Bay sends out Blake Snell (4-6, 4.40 ERA).

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Minnesota Timberwolves have hired Pablo Prigioni as an assistant coach, after the native of Argentina spent last season on staff with the Brooklyn Nets.
     Prigioni spent the majority of his 20-year playing career in the Spanish League. He became the NBA's oldest rookie at age 35 in the 2012-13 season with the New York Knicks, spending four years in the league until returning overseas. Prigioni won a bronze medal with the Argentine national team at the Olympics in 2008.
     Prigioni will join David Vanterpool, who left the Portland Trail Blazers after seven seasons, on the revamped staff under head coach Ryan Saunders.


     ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - The Minnesota Wild have extended qualifying offers to seven players eligible to become restricted free agents, including forwards Ryan Donato, Joel Eriksson Ek and Kevin Fiala to retain the rights to three key pieces of their young core. The moves were made today, as expected. Four players were not tendered an offer, including forward Pontus Aberg, making him an unrestricted free agent when the market opens Monday.
     The Wild also named recently retired center Matt Hendricks their assistant director of player development. The 38-year-old finished his 11th NHL season with Winnipeg, after a trade at the deadline sent him across the border. Hendricks had two assists in 22 games for the Wild.


     NEW YORK (AP) - Aaron Judge, Gary Sanchez, Edwin Encarnacion and the New York Yankees try to set the major league record for most consecutive games with a home run. The Yankees homered in their 27th straight game Monday night, matching the mark set by Alex Rodriguez, Rafael Palmeiro and the 2002 Texas Rangers. They'll be up against Toronto lefty Clayton Richard tonight at Yankee Stadium.



     NEW YORK (AP) - Kendrys Morales has been cut by the New York Yankees. The veteran designated hitter and first baseman was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Tuesday and designated for assignment. New York also recalled left-hander Stephen Tarpley from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Tarpley replaces struggling reliever Jonathan Holder in the bullpen. Holder was optioned to Triple-A after Monday night's 10-8 victory over Toronto. Morales, who turned 36 last week, was acquired May 14 from Oakland for a player to be named or cash.



     BALTIMORE (AP) - The Baltimore Orioles have signed the top overall pick in the Major League Baseball draft, catcher Adley Rutschman of Oregon State. The 21-year-old Rutschman received a signing bonus of $8.1 million.

     Rutschman, a switch-hitter, batted .411 with 17 home runs as a junior for the Beavers this year. He won the Golden Spikes Award, which recognizes the top amateur baseball player in the United States. Baltimore had not had the first draft pick since 1989, when it selected pitcher Ben McDonald out of LSU.

     The Orioles announced the signing on Monday. The deadline to sign draft picks is July 12. The team planned to introduce him to the crowd at Camden Yards today during a game against the San Diego Padres.



     ST. LOUIS (AP) - The Blues signed coach Craig Berube to a three-year contract extension Tuesday after he led St. Louis to its first Stanley Cup championship in his first season in charge. The Blues were in last place at the start of the year, but Berube led them on an 11-game win streak in January and February to position them for the playoffs. They wound up going 38-19-6 in the regular season, then beat the Jets, Stars and Sharks in the playoffs to reach the Stanley Cup Final.

     The Blues beat the Bruins in seven games to win the first championship in their 52-year history. Berube, who also spent two seasons coaching the Flyers, joined the franchise as an associate coach in 2017. His new deal will be formally announced at a news conference Wednesday.



     UNDATED (AP) - The Arizona Coyotes have acquired forward Carl Soderberg from the Colorado Avalanche in exchange for defenseman Kevin Connauton. Colorado also picks up a third-round selection in the 2020 draft. Soderberg is coming off a season in which he scored a career-high 23 goals. The 33-year-old center spent the last four seasons with the Avalanche after being acquired on June 25, 2015.

     In other NHL moves:

     - The Boston Bruins have signed defenseman Steven Kampfer to a two-year contract extension that will pay him $800,000 per season. The 30-year-old Kampfer was acquired from the New York Rangers last September, bringing him back to the team he made his NHL debut with in 2010.

     - Washington Capitals defenseman Brooks Orpik has decided to retire after 15 NHL seasons and two Stanley Cup championships. The 38-year-old announced his retirement Tuesday. Orpik says his body is telling him "it is time to move on to something new" after 1,171 regular-season and playoff games. Orpik won the Stanley Cup with Pittsburgh in 2009 and Washington in 2018.



     UNDATED (AP) - Canadian women's star Hayley Wickenheiser was elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame in her first year of eligibility. Wickenheiser headlines the 2019 Hall of Fame class that also includes former NHL players Sergei Zubov and Guy Carbonneau, Czech hockey star Vaclav Nedomansky and builders Jim Rutherford and Jerry York. Hall chairman Lanny McDonald announced the inductees today.

     In 79 international games, Wickenheiser recorded 58 goals and 88 assists for 146 points. She won four Olympic gold medals, seven world championship golds, one Olympic silver and six world championship silvers. Wickenheiser won three Women's World Hockey League titles and a Canadian Women's Hockey League title. She is currently assistant director of player development for the Toronto Maple Leafs.



     LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP) - Breakdancing has moved a step closer to the 2024 Olympics, and now organizers can look to book a street venue in Paris. IOC members have formally endorsed requests from Paris in February and their executive board in March to provisionally add breakdancing to the program, pending a final decision in December 2020.

     Paris wants to add four sports to its program, though the other three - skateboarding, sport climbing, and surfing - will make Olympic debuts in Tokyo next year. Breakdancing will have 16 competitors in each of the men's and women's events.
