CHICAGO -- The Chicago Cubs declined Jason Hammels $12 million option for next season, opening a spot in their rotation and making the right-hander one of the top starters on the free-agent market.The World Series champions announced the move Sunday. Hammel gets a $2 million buyout.While Jason is healthy and primed to have another effective season in 2017, we have decided to consider other internal and external options for our starting rotation next year, President of Baseball Operations Theo Epstein said in a statement. Our hope is that by giving a starting opportunity to some younger pitchers under multiple years of club control, we can unearth a starter who will help us not only in 2017 but also in 2018 and beyond.The 34-year-old Hammel went 15-10 with a 3.83 ERA in 30 starts this year. The 6-foot-6 right-hander is 33-22 with a 3.59 ERA in 78 starts over two stints with the Cubs.Hammel did not pitch in the postseason. The Cubs got left-hander Mike Montgomery in a July trade with Seattle, and he could replace Hammel in the rotation.Hammel first signed with the Cubs in February 2014. He went 8-5 with a 2.98 ERA in 17 starts before he was traded to Oakland in the deal that sent shortstop Addison Russell to Chicago.The pitcher re-signed with Chicago in December 2014, for $20 million over two years.The option was included with the intent that it would be exercised if Jason was going to be a Cub in 2017. The intent was never to exercise the option and then trade Jason, so we will not consider that path, Epstein said. Instead, Jason will have the opportunity to enter free agency coming off an outstanding season and the ability to choose his next club. Meanwhile, the organization gains some flexibility and the opportunity to use a rotation spot to develop a younger, long-term starting pitcher.Montgomery was on hand when the Cubs were honored at Sunday nights NHL game between the Chicago Blackhawks and Dallas Stars. Montgomery, right fielder Jason Heyward and slugger Kyle Schwarber, along with team owner Tom Ricketts and a couple of Cubs executives, brought the World Series trophy to center ice, and the players posed with a W flag as the crowd roared its approval.Retiring catcher David Ross, fresh off his appearance on Saturday Night Live, later joined the group and got a big ovation when he was shown on the videoboard holding the trophy.---Jay Cohen can be reached at http://www.twitter.com/jcohenap [url=http://www.jerseysnhlfromchina.us/]Cheap NHL Jerseys China[/url] .ca NBA Power Rankings, ahead of the Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs.

Jon Montgomerys gold medal in skeleton at the Whistler Sliding Centre and his subsequent auctioning off of a pitcher of beer in the village square elevated him to folk-hero status.

The lawyers filed a 33-page amended complaint Tuesday in federal court in Manhattan, expanding on the suit originally filed Oct. 3 in New York Supreme Court. Arbitrator Fredric Horowitz last week refused to compel Selig to testify in the grievance, and Rodriguez then walked out of the hearing without testifying.

Miikka Kiprusoff had just announced his retirement after a decade-long run in Calgary and it would be up to Berra and Ramo to fill the void.

Rivers threw a 22-yard touchdown pass to rookie Keenan Allen and Nick Novak kicked four field goals to give the Chargers a 19-9 victory against the Colts on Monday night. An emotional Carmelo Anthony announced his retirement from international play Sunday after helping the United States mens Olympic team win gold.Anthony is the first American mens basketball player to win three gold medals, the third coming after Team USAs 96-66 win over Serbia on Sunday. He will also retire as the all-time leading scorer in mens U.S. Olympic play with 336 points and is the programs all-time leading rebounder.I know this is the end. This is it for me, this is it for me. I committed to something ... Anthony said in an interview with NBC, trailing off for several seconds to gather himself. I committed to this in [2004]. Ive seen the worst and Ive seen the best, and I stuck with it -- we stuck with it. And Im here today, three gold medals later.Anthony and the U.S. men settled for a bronze medal in the 2004 Olympics in a disappointing performance; hes helped the Americans win three straight gold medals since. Anthony had seven points and seven rebounds Sunday, checking back in in the final quarter so he could get one more rebound -- the 125th of his Olympic career -- which pushed him past David Robinson on the all-time list.I think Ive given enough to Team USA basketball, Anthony said in a news conference after the game. As much as Im going to miss it, its time to pass it on to some of the guys that [were] on our team this year but also to the younger guys coming along, to give them an opportunity tto be a part of something great.ddddddddddddIts been a fun journey for me. Its been a fun ride. Ive seen both sides of it. Ive seen the losing side, and Ive seen what it feels like to win three gold medals. I wouldnt trade that for anything in the world.Anthony, 32, chose to play with the U.S. team during a summer in which close friends LeBron James, Chris Paul and Dwyane Wade either passed on the chance to play or were sidelined by injury. Anthony said Sunday that he appreciated the opportunity to lead a new group of Olympians to gold.I just want to say thank you for allowing me to be one of the leaders, not just of our team but of our country, Anthony said.The last part of his statement was a reference to the vocal stance Anthony has taken this summer in the wake of shooting deaths of black men by police officers and the shooting deaths of police officers across the country.Anthony used Sundays platform to send a message of unity in the wake of the recent social unrest.Despite everything thats going on right now in our country, we got to be united, he said. ... America will be great again, I believe that. We got a lot of work to do, but one step at a time. Im glad we represented it in the fashion that we did.Information from ESPN senior writer Marc Stein contributed to this report. ' ' '
