Carlos Frias Injury: Updates on Dodgers P’s Back and Return

The Los Angeles Dodgers placed pitcher Carlos Frias on the 15-day disabled list Sunday due to back tightness.

Continue for updates.

Frias to DL, Coulombe Recalled

Sunday, July 5

The team announced left-hander Daniel Coulombe would be recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City to fill Frias’ spot on the roster. Coulombe appeared in four games earlier this season, giving up six earned runs in 6.1 innings before being sent back down.

Frias, 25, was removed from his June 30 start against the Arizona Diamondbacks after five innings due to back tightness. He underwent an MRI that showed no structural damage, but he did not look 100 percent in his scheduled bullpen session Saturday. 

“He was okay today. Not quite as good as we’d like him to be. We’re still talking, and haven’t really made a decision on him yet,” Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said, per Eric Stephen of SB Nation. “The pen seemed to go good, better than the other day. But he wasn’t throwing free and it wasn’t totally out of his mind.”

Frias is 5-5 with a 4.39 ERA and 1.55 WHIP this season.

Sports, fantasy and strategy will collide this September in Blood Bowl II for Xbox One and Windows

Anyone who played games during the 16-bit era probably remembers a classic EA Sports title called Mutant League Football. That game drew inspiration from real-life board game Blood Bowl, which depicts a very football-like sport played by human and fantasy races. Blood Bowl takes place in a cartoonish version of the Warhammer fantasy universe.

French developer Cyanide Studio’s first Blood Bowl video game won a sizable cult following a few years back. This September, Cyanide and Focus Home Interactive will follow-up with Blood Bowl II for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Windows. The new game promises a lengthy campaign, robust online multiplayer leagues, a spectator mode, and plenty of violent turn-based strategic gameplay.

We went through a game of Blood Bowl II at E3 2015 and came away impressed. Read on for our in-depth preview with developer interview and gameplay video!

Here’s a Very Brief Preview of Drake’s Forthcoming “Energy” Video

5 months following his album’s release, the first visual is on its way

Drake‘s If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late mixtape-album has fueled his 2015, allowing him to perform new material on several big stages, including Coachella, Governors Ball, Wireless Festival, and on his Jungle Tour, which he just recently wrapped up. It’s given him an insane amount of momentum heading into the release of his formal 4th LP, Views From The 6, which he’s been teasing for over a year.

Before he switches into VFT6 mode, however, he will liberate the first video of It’s Too Late, the crowd-favorite “Energy,” directed by Fleur & Manu, who worked with Skrillex on his “Doompy Poomp” video earlier this year. You can watch the short preview here on Drake’s Instagram.

World Bank removes critical section from China report

China's leaders are trying to engineer a transformation of the country's growth model whereby consumer demand becomes the main driver rather than investmentThe World Bank has removed a sharply critical portion from a recently released report on China's economy that called for reform of its financial system, saying the section had not been adequately reviewed and that its wording was inappropriate. On Wednesday, the Washington-based institution released its China Economic Update report in Beijing, which included a section urging the country to accelerate reform of its state-dominated financial sector. In blunt language, the World Bank warned that failure to address the issue could end "three decades of stellar performance" for the world's second-largest economy.
