Scott Boehm/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) — Third baseman Juan Uribe was sent to the 15-day disabled list by the Los Angeles Dodgers Saturday due to a right hamstring injury.

The hamstring, which already caused Uribe to miss more than a month earlier this season, was injured while Uribe was trying to catch a foul popup in the team’s 6-3 loss to the Brewers Friday.

“It being the same leg, the last time we felt good after four or five days, he played three or four (games) and then he missed 30 days,” Dodgers skipper Don Mattingly said. “That’s the one thing we worry about.”

The 35-year-old Uribe has played in 81 games this season, posting a .293 batting average, six home runs, 35 RBIs and a .320 on-base percentage.

The Dodgers have yet to announce who they will call up to replace Uribe.

ThinkStock(ENDICOTT, N.Y.) — Kevin Sutherland drained 12 birdies en route to shooting the first 59 in Champions Tour history, Saturday at En-Joie Golf Club.

Sutherland had a chance on the 18th hole to shoot a 58, which would’ve made him the first player ever to do that in a PGA Tour sanctioned event, with a par. He had a six-foot putt to set the record but just missed.

The 50-year-old Sutherland started the day with seven birdies and an eagle on his first eight holes, firing a 13-under 58. He leads the tournament by one stroke over Steve Lowery.

Sutherland is looking to win his second career PGA Tour title. He won the Match Play Championship in 2002.

Todd Warshaw/Getty Images(LEXINGTON, Ohio) — Chris Buescher became the third rookie to win a Nationwide Series race this year by taking the checkered flag at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course Saturday.

The 21-year-old Buescher took the lead with 22 laps to go and never lost it from there despite running low on fuel.

“We do have a fuel-pressure gauge in the car and I think it was with two (laps) to go it started flashing at me,” Buescher said. “On certain areas of the track, (the car) was just starving for fuel. I spent the last lap just kind of shaking (the car) back and forth a little bit to make sure we got all the fuel we could into the pickup. It was nerve wracking to say the least.”

The win was Buescher’s first in 30 Nationwide Series races.

Regan Smith came in second, followed by Brian Scott, Chase Elliott and Alex Tagliani.

Jeff Zelevansky/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — The Chicago Bears are rolling the dice on a potential big return as ESPN is reporting the team has agreed to terms on a deal with wide receiver Santonio Holmes.

The 30-year-old Holmes spent the past four seasons with the New York Jets, but has struggled to stay healthy the past two seasons.

He appeared in just four games in 2012 due to a lisfrank injury, and never fully regained his old form.

The team decided that it was time for both sides to mutually part ways as he didn’t figure into the teams future plans.

In 11 games last season, Holmes caught 23 passes for 456 yards and one touchdown. He appeared in all 16 regular season games just once during his time with the Jets.

With the Bears set at wide receiver with Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery, Holmes figures to be a complimentary part of an already explosive Bears offense under second-year head coach Mark Trestman.

In 2014, the Bears had the eighth ranked offense in the NFL.
