Diversity and inclusion campaigns have also been shared via social media.

It's said every year just in a different way. Ballard reiterated that the Colts won't draft solely based on need. They will stay true to their board and take best player available, which they have done ever since he took over as general manager. "The one thing we won’t do, we won’t just force the issue, especially early in the draft. That’s when you make your biggest mistakes, when you just force the issue," Ballard said. "If it so happens, (someone) falls and there is a player we like at either one of those positions, sure. I think you all know our philosophy on the fronts. You need eight to 10 offensive linemen and we feel you need eight to 10 defensive linemen. So we’ll continue to add fuel to the fire, but we are not just going to force the issue.”

Mayfield was extended the fifth-year option by the Browns earlier in April. He went No. 1 overall out of Oklahoma to Cleveland in the 2018 NFL Draft.

But while Ball may have injected some life and excitement into this team, pretty much everyone on the roster has been a positive surprise. Gordon Hayward has been more productive than he was at any point during his Celtics’ tenure. Devonte’ Graham and Terry Rozier have combined to shoot 39 percent on more than 16 3-point attempts per game. P.J. Washington has been a perfect offensive complement, Malik Monk is finally delivering on his promise as a shooter and Miles Bridges is dunking everything in sight (and suddenly making nearly 40 percent of his 3s). This team is deep, talented, versatile and young. The Hornets are smashing expectations despite having the fifth-youngest roster in the league.

On Friday, Tatis homered twice off Kershaw, on the 22nd anniversary of his father belting two grand slams in one inning at Dodger Stadium. On Saturday, Tatis homered twice again -- this time off Trevor Bauer -- to become the first player ever with back-to-back two-homer games against Cy Young Award winners. On Sunday, he homered yet again. With that, he became the first shortstop to homer in three straight games at Dodger Stadium and the first player with five home runs and two or more stolen bases in a road series, no matter the venue.Arizona Diamondbacks Face Coverings

They didn't have a Baddoo jersey ready for sale -- and still don't, with the only option to create a custom-made one. But in his most recent series, Baddoo didn't get a hit in 11 at-bats against the Oakland Athletics, striking out eight times. To get through his rough stretch, Baddoo acknowledged he needs to maintain the confidence that allowed him to make the jump from High-A to the majors.Milwaukee Brewers Face Coverings

In the top of the fifth inning, the Cardinals had two men on base with one out against them, all while carrying a 6-2 lead . Outfielder Dylan Carlson stepped up to the plate, but the Nationals opted to intentionally walk him to load the bases so they could face shortstop Paul DeJong instead. DeJong instantly made the Nationals pay by hitting a grand slam off pitcher Joe Ross to extend the Cardinals’ lead to 10-2.

The big key here is Atlanta is not going to rush Soroka back to the starting rotation any sooner than the Braves have to. The front office made it a point to solidify the starting rotation this offseason to help counterbalance Soroka working his way back from such a devastating injury. However, we do have to wonder at what point Soroka does return to the Atlanta rotation in 2021.

A second reason is that the Dolphins have plenty of draft capital to take a chance on another quarterback.
