Photos.com/Thinkstock(ARLINGTON, Texas) -- The Los Angeles Angels dealt outfielder Josh Hamilton to the Texas Rangers on Monday for a player to be named later or cash considerations. The Halos are expected to pick up most of the $80.2 million remaining on Hamilton’s three-year contract.

The five-time All-Star is currently on the 15-day disabled list, recovering from off-season right shoulder surgery.  During spring training, he informed Major League Baseball officials that he suffered a drug relapse.

“Over the course of the last few weeks, it became clear that Josh wanted to return to Texas,” said Angels general manager Jerry Dipoto. “After several discussions with the Rangers, we were able to complete a trade that in the end is the right decision for everyone involved.”

Hamilton spent five seasons (2008-2012) with the Rangers, where he batted .305 with 142 home runs and 506 RBIs. He was named the American League Most Valuable Player in 2010 after hitting a league-high .359 with 32 homers and 100 RBIs.

Brian D. Kersey/Getty Images(MIAMI) -- The Miami Marlins designated catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia for assignment on Monday. If no team claims him on the waiver wire, he will become a free agent.

The Marlins signed Saltalamacchia to a three-year contract, worth $21 million, prior to the 2014 season. In 123 games with Miami, he batted .209 with 12 home runs and 45 RBIs.

Saltalamacchia is just 2-for-29 (.069) with one home run on the season. With the nine-year veteran playing poorly, the Marlins turned to J.T. Realmuto as their starting catcher.

Saltalamacchia won a World Series title in 2013 with the Boston Red Sox.

Jeff Zelevansky/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Mark Sanchez isn't worried that his job is in jeopardy after the team signed Tim Tebow to a one-year deal.

"He's obviously a great guy, he works hard. And we needed another guy to throw while [Sam Bradford] is still recovering," Sanchez told CSNPhilly.com. "So that's kind of the reason there [for the signing], at least as it was explained to me."

Sanchez and Tebow were both teammates back in 2012, but Tebow played sparingly.

After starting eight games for the Eagles in 2014, Sanchez re-signed with the Eagles for up to $16 million over two years.

"Coach Kelly knows what he's doing," Sanchez added. "Don't worry too much. It's only April. Things will fall into place. We'll be just fine."

Tebow last appeared in an NFL regular season game during his lone season with the Jets in 2012.

Brian D. Kersey/Getty Images(CHICAGO) -- Kansas City Royals' outfielder Lorenzo Cain, who was among those suspended by Major League Baseball following the brawl between his team and the Chicago White Sox, says the bad blood between the two teams has been resolved.

Six players overall, including Cain, were suspended by Major League Baseball for a total of 26 games as a result of the scuffle.

"I think we got all our emotions out that night and I think it's over and done with," Cain said. "I think we're going to try to go out here and go back to just playing baseball and leave it at that."

"It shouldn't have escalated to that point in the first place," Cain added. "Once it gets to that point, it's up to them to decide on the suspensions."

Cain received a two-game suspension for his role in the brawl, but is currently appealing.

Photos.com/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- After hurting his thumb during an at-bat, Washington Nationals starting pitcher Max Scherzer thinks the National League should add the designated hitter like the American League.

Scherzer, who will miss his next scheduled start because of the thumb injury, also hurt his wrist in the process.

His injury comes at a time when St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Adam Wainwright tore his Achilles over the weekend after stumbling out of the batters box during an at-bat.

With injuries piling up for pitchers, Scherzer thinks a change is needed.

"If you look at it from the macro side, who'd people rather see hit: Big Papi or me?" Scherzer told CBS Sports. "Who would people rather see, a real hitter hitting home runs or a pitcher swinging a wet newspaper? Both leagues need to be on the same set of rules.

"If you look at it long-term, I think eventually there will be a DH in the National League," Scherzer added.

It is currently unknown if Scherzer will need to miss more than one start.

(OTTAWA) -- Canadiens goalie Carey Price was clearly tired of playing against the Ottawa Senators and eager to send Montreal to the second round. He stopped 43 shots on way to Montreal's 2-0 shutout over Ottawa.

Brendan Gallagher's goal in the first period was all the Canadiens needed and Max Pacioretty sealed the game with an empty netter in the third to seal the victory.

 "I know some people thought it would be pretty easy for us to get the fourth win, but we knew they were a capable team that battled hard all season to get into the playoffs," Montreal's P.K. Subban said. "I like the way we had to win this series."

"We deserved it. We worked for it. I thought we had some bounces early in the series. We didn't get them as the series went on, but today we stuck to the plan regardless of what happened. And when you have Carey Price back there, it makes everything a lot easier," he added.

The Canadiens will face the winner of the Detroit, Tampa Bay series, of which the Red Wings currently lead the Lightning 3-2.

(MEMPHIS) -- The Memphis Grizzlies are on the cusp of eliminating the Portland Trailblazers from the first round of the playoffs, but they will have go without point guard Mike Conley in game four.

Conley's face was on the receiving end of Portland's C.J. Miller's elbow in the third quarter of Saturday's 115-109 victory.

"Mike Conley has a facial injury, we flew him back to Memphis to be reevaluated, he will be out for Game 4," said Memphis head coach Dave Joerger.

Conley was taken to a medical facility Saturday evening and was released later the same night to return for team dinner.

Conley has averaged 16 points per game in Portland's three victories.

Jonathan Newton/The Washington Post via Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Just days before the NFL draft, reports have surfaced that LSU defensive back Jalen Collins has "multiple failed" drug tests while enrolled at the university, according to NFL Network.

Collins played in all 13 games for LSU this past season snagging one interception and racking up 38 tackles.

After running a 4.5 40-yard dash at the combine, it was discovered that he had an incomplete Jones fracture in his fifth metatarsal in his right foot. Collins underwent surgery soon after to correct the break.

Collins was projected to be a late first to early second round pick before the report.
