The Vikings have finalized their release of running back Alexander Mattison. Reports emerged last week about Minnesota's plans to cut the 2023 starter. Mattison took over for Dalvin Cook as the number-one back in Minnesota, but he was replaced by Ty Chandler towards the end of the season after rushing for just 700 yards and scoring just three receiving touchdowns.

The Twins won both games of their Spring Training split doubleheader yesterday. Emmanuel Rodriguez smoked a home run as Minnesota beat the Orioles 7-2. Cole Sands earned the win with one scoreless inning, and AJ Labas picked up the save. Ryan Jeffers, Willi Castro, and Carlos Santana all went deep in a 4-3 win against Atlanta. Brock Stewart got the win in relief, and Hobie Harris earned the save. Chris Paddack starts for Minnesota against St. Louis today.

The Bucks extended their winning streak following a 113-106 victory over the Clippers in Milwaukee. Damian Lillard led all scorers with 41 points and came away with three steals. The Bucks have won six games in a row and sit atop the Central Division at 41-and-21. The team visits the Warriors tomorrow night.

The Brewers return to the diamond this afternoon. The team squares off against the Giants in Scottsdale for a spring training game. Milwaukee is coming off a big win over the Diamondbacks where Willy Adames and Jefferson Quero each blasted homers. Freddy Peralta got the start and gave up three runs over three innings as the Brew Crew improved to 3-and-6 in exhibition play.
