Nats’ pitcher Strasburg misses start

WASHINGTON (AP) — Nationals rookie right-hander Stephen Strasburg first sensed tightness in his pitching shoulder "a couple days ago," he said, chalking it up to "kind of hitting the wall a little bit."

A day after being scratched minutes before what was supposed to be the 10th major league start of his much-hyped career, Strasburg said he felt "a lot better" and his range of motion is "starting to come back."

Washington general manager Mike Rizzo and trainer Lee Kuntz said Strasburg did not indicate he had a problem before Tuesday, when his pregame bullpen session ended about six throws in.

Gates gets

$36.1 mil deal

from Chargers

SAN DIEGO (AP) — Antonio Gates has caught plenty of big passes for the San Diego Chargers, and he hauled in the biggest contract ever given to an NFL tight end.

Gates agreed to a $36.175 million, five-year contract extension, with $20.4 million guaranteed, according to a person familiar with the deal, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the figures weren't released. The deal averages $7.235 million per season from 2011-15.



getting no slack

from Redskins

ASHBURN, Va. (AP) — Albert Haynesworth finally showed up for work — and quickly learned the Washington Redskins won't be cutting him any slack.

On the eve of the first day of training camp, Haynesworth ended his months-long boycott of the team by meeting with coach Mike Shanahan. Hardly sympathetic to the plight of a player who recently received a $21 million bonus, the coach wasn't about to let bygones be bygones.
