PHOENIX — Pittsburgh Pirates second baseman Rodolfo Castro apparently can’t go anywhere without his phone.

Called up from Triple-A Indianapolis before the game, Castro slid headfirst into third in the fourth inning against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday night and had his phone fly out of his back pocket.

Third base umpire Adam Hamari immediately saw the phone and pointed to it on the ground. The 23-year-old Castro picked up the phone and handed it to Pirates third base coach Mike Rebelo, who had an exasperated look on his face before taking it.

Major League Baseball has cracked down on technology being used on the field since the Houston Astros used live TV feeds to steal opposing teams’ signs during their run to the 2017 World Series championship and part of the 2018 season.

Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow and manager A. J. Hinch were suspended for the 2020 season. The Astros also were fined $5 million and forfeited their first- and second-round picks in 2020 and 2021.

No word on if Castro had the ringer on vibrate.

Finland körde över Lettland i JVM-premiären

Joakim Kemell kammade hem fyra poäng genom två mål i första perioden och två assist i den tredje. Lika många poäng fick Aatu Räty genom ett mål och tre assist.

– Vi spelade bra, men naturligtvis tror vi att vi kan förbättra oss och spela bättre nästa match. Men just nu är vi nöjda med hur det gick i dag, säger Kemell enligt mästerskapets sajt.

Klavs Veinsbergs gjorde Lettlands enda mål.

Finlands ishockeyjuniorer siktar på sitt sjätte JVM-guld, de tidigare gulden bärgades 1987, 1998, 2014, 2016 och 2019. Så sent som i fjol tog de hem ett brons, även då i Edmonton.

Rangers name defenseman Jacob Trouba captain

NEW YORK — The New York Rangers have named defenseman Jacob Trouba captain.

Rangers president and general manager Chris Drury announced the selection in a news release Tuesday morning, and the team held a news conference with Drury, Trouba and coach Gerard Gallant at the team’s practice facility in Greenburgh, New York, in the afternoon.

Trouba, a first-round selection by Winnipeg in the 2012 draft, was acquired from the Jets on June 17, 2019. He has totaled 20 goals and 58 assists in 189 games over the last three seasons with the Rangers.

“Anyone that has been around our team for the last few seasons I think certainly understands the impact Jacob has had on our group, day to day, day in, day out, on ice, off ice, game days or practice days,” Drury said. “He’s a terrific leader and we think he’ll be a great Rangers captain for years to come.”

The 28-year-old, an alternate captain the last two seasons, is the 28th captain in franchise history, and the first since Ryan McDonagh was traded in 2018.

“It was just the right time,” Drury said. “Jake was basically doing the job for at least a couple of seasons and we just felt like it was appropriate and now’s the time, and we’re excited to see the `C’ on him.”

Trouba is one of three defensemen currently serving as captain in the NHL, joining Jared Spurgeon (Minnesota) and Roman Josi (Nashville). He is the 12th defenseman to serve as captain in franchise history.

“I believe in this group and the group of players we have and I’m just really grateful for this opportunity and look forward to leading this team,” Trouba said.

In the first season under Gallant last year, the Rangers had six alternate captains – Barclay Goodrow, Chris Kreider, Artemi Panarin, Ryan Strome, Mika Zibanejad and Trouba. Strome, a free agent after the season, signed with Anaheim last month.

“We had a group of core leaders and if anybody had an issue, or wanted to talk, we would meet, call a meeting and discuss it and figure out how you want to address it,” Trouba said. “That’s going to have to continue going forward. I think all of our leadership group has different strengths, different qualities, different relationships with other players and people, and we use each other as well as we can to navigate through every situation.”

Last season, he had a career-high 11 goals, 28 assists and a career-best plus-minus rating of plus-25 in 81 games. Trouba had 177 blocked shots, the second-most in the NHL, and was the only player in the league with more than 175 blocks and more than 200 hits. He also had a goal and four assists over 20 games in the Rangers’ run to the Eastern Conference Final.

For his career, he has 62 goals and 195 assists in 597 games over nine seasons with the Jets and Rangers.

Darvin Ham Plans On Running Lakers' Offense Through Anthony Davis

During a meeting last week with LeBron James, Darvin Ham revealed how he plans on having the Los Angeles Lakers’ offense run through Anthony Davis.

James concurred with the idea.

The Lakers have been encouraged by the work Davis has put in this offseason and they believe he will be able to avoid serious injuries and carry a heavier load.

The Lakers are also hopeful Russell Westbrook will improve his three-point shooting from the corners.
