Mark Buehrle, Jose Reyes, Josh Johnson, John Buck, and Emilio Bonifacio are heading north. The Miami Marlins made a big deal with the Toronto Blue Jays yesterday for three top prospects. Miami, in turn, will get Yunel Escobar, Adeiny Hechavarria, Henderson Alvarez, Anthony DeScalfani, Jeff Mathis, and minor-league pitcher Justin Nicolino and outfielder Jake Marisnick. The Marlins weren’t done there though. They are also sending the Jays $4 million to aid in the guaranteed monies the Toronto organization is assuming.

Former Seahawks tight end Jerramy Stevens was arrested on suspicion of assaulting U.S. women’s Olympic soccer player Hope Solo just a day before their walk down the aisle. He was released and not charged after the judge said that there was no evidence connecting Stevens to the assault. The story is pretty weird. When police arrived at the home they found several intoxicated people. Solo had a cut on her elbow, her brother had a blackened eye and multiple contusions, another woman had a hip injury, and Stevens had blood on his shirt and a contusion on his face.
Tomlin isn’t giving up much information on his quarterback that left Monday Night’s game with a shoulder injury.

Adrian Peterson’s resisting arrest charge has been dropped. During the offseason the Viking’s running back was arrested at a club.
