Comstock/Thinkstock(LAS VEGAS) -- Los Angeles Kings center Jarret Stoll was arrested Friday for suspected cocaine possession at the MGM Grand Hotel's Wet Republic pool complex.

Stoll was held at the Clark County Detention Center. He was released from custody Friday night, an officer confirmed to ESPN.com's Katie Strang.

Stoll also was suspected of possessing Ecstasy, and NHL security was notified of the situation.

The Kings issued a statement late Friday, saying they were aware of the reports.

"Our organization is concerned and has begun conducting a thorough internal investigation," the team's statement said. "While we continue to actively gather facts, we are withholding further comment at this time."

Stoll will become an unrestricted free agent July 1. He had six goals and 11 assists in 73 games, his seventh with Los Angeles after five with Edmonton.

Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- A popular postseason pick, the Miami Marlins have not looked like a team capable of playing in October early on. Outfielder Giancarlo Stanton made it known that he's frustrated with how the team has played this season.

Through 11 games, the Marlins are 3-8, tied for worst in the National League East.

"We're not really giving ourselves a chance, it feels like," Stanton said after the team's loss to the New York Mets on Friday night. "We've got a positive vibe, but [something] is just not there.

"The fire is not there, it seems like. You always want to have it. But when you're out there and it's game time, it's just nothing there."

During the offseason, Stanton agreed on a record-setting $325 million contract. The Marlins also brought in players like Dee Gordon, Mat Latos, Martin Prado, and Michael Morse.

David Ramos/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Lionel Messi reached another milestone, scoring his 400th career goal for Barcelona on Saturday in his club's La Liga meeting with Valencia.

Messi has scored 278 goals in La Liga, 75 in Champions League, 32 in Copa Del Rey, 10 in the Spanish Super Cup, four in the Club World Cup, and one goal in the UEFA Super Cup.

Messi became Barcelona's all-time goal scorer last March, when he passed Paulino Alcantara, who scored 369 goals for the club between 1912 and 1927.

The Argentina forward has won the Ballon d'Or four times, and holds the record for leading goal scorer in a single La Liga season, with 50 in 2011-12.

Andy Lyons/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Once seen as a core player for the Indiana Pacers, the organization isn't so sure anymore where center Roy Hibbert fits in with the team going forward.

Now in his seventh season with the Pacers, Hibbert's performance has slipped considerably this year. Never much of a scorer, Hibbert averaged 10.6 points per game this season, the lowest mark since his rookie year.

The Pacers have stated they will try to change their playing style next season, head coach Frank Vogel says Hibbert's place with the team is in question.

“We’ll have to see how it all plays out and what the roster ultimately looks like but there’s a possibility that Roy’s role will be diminished, if we’re trying to play faster and trying to play smaller,” Vogel said, via Candace Buckner of the Indianapolis Star. “But a lot of stuff is going to happen this summer, we’ll see how the roster shapes out coming into next season."

Hibbert has averaged 11.1 points, 6..8 rebounds, and 1.9 blocks per game during hsi time with the Pacers.

Mike Stobe/Getty Images(ST. PETERSBURG) -- Don't look now, but Alex Rodriguez is arguably the hottest hitter on the New York Yankees.

A-Rod homered twice in the Yankees 5-4 win over the Tampa Bay Rays on Friday night. It was career home run number 657 and 658. He's just two home runs away from tying Willie Mays for fourth on the all-time list.

"I try not to think about that," Rodriguez said. "I’m just really focusing on trying to help the team win.”

Through 10 games this season, Rodriguez leads the Yankees in batting average, home runs, and RBIs.

Rodriguez was suspended the entire 2014 season for his role in the Biogenesis scandal.

"More than anything, I’m just feeling very grateful to be back playing baseball," he said. "I’m very grateful to (owners) Hank and Hal [Steinbrenner] for giving me the opportunity to put the uniform on again. It’s something I don't take for granted and it’s much appreciated. It just feels good to be playing baseball. I’m having fun out there."

Rodriguez is under contract for three more seasons.

Joe Robbins/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Five-star recruit Stephen Zimmerman committed to UNLV via Twitter.

The 7-foot Zimmerman, who played high school ball at Las Vegas' Bishop Gorman High, chose to stay close to home despite being recruited by Kansas, Arizona, Kentucky, and UCLA.

Zimmerman is the No. 10-ranked prospect in the ESPN 100.

UNLV has the chance to have one of the best frontcourts in the NCAA next season if forward Christian Wood decides to return to school instead of entering the NBA Draft. UNLV also brought in Oregon transfer Ben Carter and the No. 27-ranked prospect, forward Derrick Jones.

Rick Yeatts/Getty Images(ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.) -- Tampa Bay Rays third baseman Evan Longoria won't let a bruised hip stop him from playing.

Longoria, who was hit by a pitch in the hip during Thursday night's game against the Toronto Blue Jays, started Friday night's game against the New York Yankees as the Rays' designated hitter to keep his major league-leading consecutive games played (252) streak alive.

While it's nice that Longoria is still playing, the Rays hope to have him out in the field soon.

"Hopefully a day and he'll be back out there," Rays skipper Kevin Cash said. "But he got squared up pretty good in kind of an awkward spot."

In 11 games this season, Longoria is hitting .235 with one home run, five runs scored, and a .409 on-base percentage.

Len Redkoles/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) -- Nicklas Backstrom had a goal and two assists to help the Washington Capitals erase a 3-1 deficit to top the New York Islanders 4-3.

The win evens the best-of-seven first-round playoff series at a game apiece.

Washington wins despite not having starting goaltender Braden Holtby, who was sick. The Caps called up Philipp Grubauer from the minors, and he made 18 saves in the victory.

The Islanders got on the board first when Cal Clutterbuck scored 5:14 into the game. Ryan Strome then scored 3:24 into the second period to put the Islanders up 2-0. The two teams then traded goals before Alex Ovechkin scored the 32nd playoff goal of his career to make it 3-2.

Washington took advantage of an early power play in the third period when Backstrom found the back of the net to tie the game. Jason Chimera gave the Caps the lead for good less than four minutes later when he took the rebound off of his original shot and wristed the puck past Jaroslav Halak.

The series now shifts to Long Island, where Game 3 will be held on Sunday at 12 p.m. ET.

Chicago Cubs/MLB(CHICAGO) -- Top prospect Kris Bryant made his much anticipated major league debut with the Chicago Cubs on Friday in front of a crowd of 32,138 at Wrigley Field.

Bryant went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts while batting cleanup in the Cubs 5-4 loss to the San Diego Padres.

"Sure, I could have done a little better," Bryant said. "There's two sides to the ball. I felt I did well on defense."

He did. In the first inning he handled a hard-hit grounder by Derek Norris to start a double play. Then, in the fifth inning, he caught a screaming line drive with a runner on first base that possibly saved a run.

Bryant hit .321 with three home runs, 10 RBIs, and two stolen bases for Triple-A Iowa before being called up.
