Nats Signal Intent, Fultz Diagnosed With Thoracic Problem, Meyer Done After Bowl

Grace Higgins | December 5th, 2018

After a dismal season in which the Washington Nationals fell well short of expectations and saw outfielder Bryce Harper decide to test the free agent waters, the team could have folded, tanked, and decided to pack it in and rebuild. But instead, they are looking to go for it yet again, and the acquisition of pitcher Patrick Corbin on Tuesday proves just that. According to sources, the deal is worth $140 million for six years, and it would see another stellar arm added to the likes of Max Scherzer and Stephen Strasburg in the Nats’ rotation. Corbin, an All-Star in 2018, who logged over 200 innings in his best season to date will look to follow that up with another excellent showing as the Nationals attempt to battle back against the Philadelphia Phillies and Atlanta Braves in what should be a tightly packed NL East.

In Philly, the news finally came down regarding Markelle Fultz and his inability to shoot the ball to begin the 2018/19 NBA season. According to sources, the 76ers guard has a thoracic outlet syndrome, which has impaired his ability to shoot the ball by causing him to have abnormal range of motion and a lack of functional movement. The nerves of the shoulders and neck are the problem, and it will require him to miss between three and six weeks as he goes to therapy to treat the condition.

In news that isn’t all that surprising yet still notable, Ohio State Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer has declared that he will finish the season with the team and then step aside from the sidelines. Meyer, who will lead the Buckeyes into a Rose Bowl meeting with Washington, claims that he is officially done with all coaching. But that has been said before, and it didn’t come to pass, so the voracity of that has to be doubted. The whole scenario stems from health problems which appeared to only worsen when he and his staff were questioned regarding the Zach Smith scandal. While we don’t know if he will ever return to coaching one day or not, we do know that Ryan Day will succeed him to be the next coach.
