Published

on

Padres shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. suffered a scary-looking injury to his left shoulder Monday night. The San Diego star left the game immediately, and it’s not clear when he will return to action.

Tatis suffered the injury while whiffing on a breaking ball by Giants pitcher Anthony DeSclafani in the third inning in San Diego. Tatis appeared to hurt himself on a long follow-through to complete the swing.

Tatis went to the Padres’ clubhouse for observation. At 12:51 a.m. ET, the club announced he subluxated his shoulder and will be re-evaluated on Tuesday.

Here’s everything we know about Tatis’ injury and the latest news on when he may return to the field.

What is Fernando Tatis Jr.’s injury?

Tatis appeared to injure his left shoulder while swinging through a pitch on April 5. He left the field trying to keep the arm immobile. Per the team, he suffered a subluxation of the shoulder, which basically means his humerus popped partially out of his shoulder joint.

Tatis did hurt his left (non-throwing) shoulder late in spring training on a routine play in the field. It is not known whether the injuries are related.

MLB.com noted amid the March shoulder issue that the 22-year-old Tatis has had previous shoulder ailments as a professional. But he has not yet been placed on the injured list for a shoulder injury. He was on the Padres’ IL in 2019 with a hamstring strain and a stress reaction in his lower back.   

How long will Fernando Tatis Jr. be out?

UPDATE: Padres manager Jayce Tingler told reporters April 15 (per MLB.com and the San Diego Union-Tribune) that he was “optimistic” Tatis would be able to return for the start of a weekend series against the NL West rival Dodgers on April 16.

ORIGINAL: A lot of people are asking that question, but there’s no answer at the moment. He will be re-evaluated on Tuesday but the general timeframe for a subluxation is a few weeks; although, it could be longer based on the amount of damage to the surrounding ligaments, tendons or rotator cuff.

Denis Radovan: ‘I never cry. I only sweat out of my eyes’ – Boxing News

Published

on

Paul Wheeler talks to Denis Radovan, a middleweight who wishes he could eat like a heavyweight

When and why you started boxing:
I started boxing at the age of seven. My father was always a big boxing fan. One time he took me to a boxing club in our city of Cologne and I just fell in love with the sport.

Favourite all-time fighter:
I couldn’t name just one fighter, as this sport has so many incredible athletes. But one boxer who is always in my top five is Bernard Hopkins. I loved to watch him fight.

Best fight you’ve seen:
It’d have to be the first meeting between Andre Berto and Victor Ortiz. That was an all-action fight.

Personal career highlight:
Winning my quarter-final bout at the Youth World Championships in 2010 was a great moment for me. With that win I made history because I became one of the first German athletes to qualify for the inaugural Youth Olympic Games later that year.

Toughest opponent:
The toughest person that I’ve been in the ring with is George Groves. I sparred with him before his fight with Chris Eubank Jnr. He was a very hard and skilful fighter.

Best and worst attributes as a boxer:
I’d say that my willpower and work ethic are the attributes that have taken me places. My worst attribute? Maybe sometimes I can be a bit too hotheaded!

Training tip:
Always try to have fun, even when the sessions are difficult.

Favourite meal/restaurant:
I don’t have just one favourite meal. I like food in every way. Food is life!

Best friends in boxing:
One of my best friends in the sport is Artur Mann. He’s a very special guy. I hope to see him back in the ring soon.

Other sportsperson you would like to be:
I’d like to be a heavyweight boxer. No weight-making issues – only training and eating!

Last film/TV show you saw:
The last TV series I watched was Money Heist.

Who would play you in a film of your life:
Tom Hardy could play me in an action film!

Have you ever been starstruck:
One time I met Evander Holyfield at a gym in Louisville, Kentucky. It was a surreal experience – meeting a legendary champ who fought in so many big fights, including the two famous ones against Mike Tyson. He’s a true legend of the sport. Of course, I had to get a photo with him. That was definitely my most starstruck moment!

Last time you cried:
I never cry. I only sweat out of my eyes!

Best advice received:
Take care of the people that you love.

Worst rumour about yourself:
I’ve never heard any rumours about myself.

Something not many people know about you:
Not many people know that I love to watch trash TV!

Valencia sign shirt sponsorship deal with Socios – SportsMint Media

Published

on


La Liga club Valencia has replaced Bwin with Socios.com fan and will be the first team to promote the company on the kit. This will be a one-season deal and the fans will see Valencia’s official fan token ‘$VCF’ display on the shirt.

The Spanish side also joins some of the major football clubs like Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester City, AC Milan, Juventus, Atlético de Madrid, AS Roma, Galatasaray to work with Socios. The Argentina national team also works with the firm. 

The company first began to expand its sponsorship portfolio in the United States of America, building an alliance with teams like the National Hockey League’s New Jersey Devils and Philadelphia 76ers of NBA. Both the teams were owned by Harris Blitzer Sports & Entertainment. Alexandre Dreyfus, chief executive of blockchain provider Chiliz and Socios.com revealed that partnership with Valencia is the most valuable milestone in the company’s evolution. 

 “This world-first partnership, our fourth with a major Spanish club and 38th overall, will bring incredible visibility to fan tokens and the Socios.com platform, accelerating our mission to shift passive fans into active contributors and create a brighter future for sport – where clubs and fans alike are able to enjoy the rewards created by unlocking the potential of global fan engagement.”

Socios will replace Bwin with the shirt sponsor. Bwin is a betting operator company and had a three-year deal with the club till 2022 but the club was forced to terminate the contract with them as Spain’s new law does not allow to promote gambling in relation to sports and other events. 

Valencia had quite a disappointing season as they finished 13th in La Liga with only 43 points. The Spanishonce used to challenge for the top four spots every year but the new ownership has been a bane for them in the past few years.
