The Minnesota Twins have placed center fielder Byron Buxton and his ailing left shoulder on the 60-day injured list...

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Minnesota Twins have placed center fielder Byron Buxton and his ailing left shoulder on the 60-day injured list, ending his season and leaving the American League Central leaders without their best defensive player for the rest of the pennant race. The Twins made the move today before a three-game series against Washington. They take a five-game lead over Cleveland into the night.
 
     Buxton sustained a partial dislocation after crashing into the outfield wall while making a catch on August 1st. He batted .262 with 30 doubles, four triples, 10 homers, 46 RBIs and 48 runs in only 271 at-bats. Buxton played in five games last week as a defensive replacement and pinch runner.
 
     Minnesota reinstated right-hander Kyle Gibson from the injured list and promote infielder Ronald Torreyes from Triple-A Rochester. Gibson, who last pitched on August 30th, has been dealing with a digestive track disease, ulcerative colitis. He is scheduled to start on Thursday.
 
    Jose Berrios (11-8, 3.78 ERA) takes the mound for the Twins at Target Field tonight. He allowed six runs to the Boston Red Sox in his last outing. Anibal Sanchez (8-7, 4.11 ERA) pitches for the Nationals. Sanchez lasted five innings in each of his last two outings giving up a total of nine runs.

    MINNESOTA VIKINGS

    EAGAN, Minn. - The Vikings announced today that they have re-signed center Brett Jones, who was waived last week when Minnesota added receiver Josh Doctson. The Canada native is returning to a Minnesota team that he originally joined via a trade with the Giants in the summer of 2018. Jones backed up rookie center Garrett Bradbury throughout this preseason. He has 17 career starts in 44 regular-season NFL games, including three of 14 played for Minnesota in 2018.

    To make room for Jones, the Vikings waived undrafted rookie tight end Brandon Dillon.

    The Vikings also released kicker Chase McLaughlin from the practice squad.

     NHL-NEWS-DEVILS-ZACA

     UPDATED (AP) - The New Jersey Devils have re-signed restricted free agent center Pavel Zacha to a three-year, $6.75 million contract. The signing happened days before the Devils open training camp. And it comes a day after general manager Ray Shero questioned the former first-round draft pick for considering signing with the Russian-based Kontinental Hockey League.

    Shero said he didn't care if Zacha signed with the KHL, with Brampton of the ECHL or anywhere else because the Devils held Zacha's rights after issuing him a qualifying offer in June. In a statement released by the team today, Shero said he was pleased to have the contract completed and called Zacha an "important part of our team."

     The 22-year-old Zacha is from the Czech Republic and had a career-best 13 goals in 61 games last season. Overall, he has 29 goals and 47 assists for 76 points in 201 career NHL games.

     NFL-NEWS-BROWNS-BECKHAM WATCH

     BEREA, Ohio (AP) - Browns star receiver Odell Beckham Jr. plans to keep wearing a lavish watch in games. Beckham said that his jewelry "shouldn't be an issue" and the NFL is only making it one because he's the one involved. The NFL spoke to the Browns about Beckham's decision to wear the Richard Mille watch, which retails for more than $200,000. Beckham said he has not been directly contacted by anyone in the league office.

     Players are permitted to wear jewelry, but Beckham's decision to wear the watch could violate the league's restrictions on "hard objects."

     Beckham said his watch should be allowed because it's plastic and noted players wear knee braces "made out of metal and you don't see them taping it up". He says he's not wearing jewelry, so he thinks he "should be good".

     Eslewhere in the NFL:

     - The New York Jets have signed Sam Ficken to try to solve their ongoing kicking woes. Ficken becomes the team's fourth kicker since July.
