The Milwaukee Brewers have placed starting pitcher Corbin Burnes on the injured list. The team provided no further details. They also placed right-handed pitcher Zack Godley on the injured list, and specified him going on the “10-day injured list” with a right index finger contusion. There were no days or an injury attached to Burnes, which means his IL stint is likely COVID-related.
Further adding to the case there is that Brewers manager Craig Counsell was asked about Burnes before the game and said he couldn’t discuss it. Teams aren’t allowed to discuss COVID-related issues on players without permission, so this all lines up.
Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence was selected No. 1 overall in the 2021 NFL Draft by the Jacksonville Jaguars on Thursday night to the surprise of no one. The 6-foot-6, 220-pounder and 2018 national championship-winner was the consensus top prospect in this draft class for the better part of a year.
He made a little bit of history in the process.
Lawrence is just the second player in the recruiting era to be picked No. 1 overall after being ranked as the No. 1 prospect in his high school recruiting class. Lawrence, who hails from Cartersville (Georgia) High School, was the No. 1 prospect in the Class of 2018 when he signed with Dabo Swinney and the Tigers.
