MLB in­ves­ti­gat­ing for­mer SF closer

Times-Herald (Vallejo) - - SPORTS -

Free agent pitcher Sam Dyson has been ac­cused of do­mes­tic vi­o­lence and is be­ing in­ves­ti­gated by Ma­jor League Base­ball.

The com­mis­sioner’s of­fice says in a state­ment it is “aware of it and look­ing into it.” Dyson’s agency, ISE, did not im­me­di­ately re­spond to a text seek­ing com­ment.

The Ath­letic re­ported Tues­day the al­le­ga­tion was made by an ex-girl­friend, Alexis Black­man, in posts on her per­sonal In­sta­gram ac­count and on an ac­count she writes in the voice of her cat, Snuck­les.

The Ath­letic says posts on the ac­counts al­lud­ing to an uniden­ti­fied in­di­vid­ual were about Dyson, cit­ing a source who was not iden­ti­fied.

Dyson was ac­quired by Min­nesota from San Fran­cisco at the July 31 trade dead­line and be­came a free agent af­ter the sea­son.

CAL­GARY COACH IN LIMBO AF­TER AL­LEGEDLY US­ING RACIAL SLURS » Bill Peters’

sta­tus as the Cal­gary Flames coach — and what­ever fu­ture he might have in the sport — have been placed into ques­tion while the NHL and the team in­ves­ti­gate al­le­ga­tions he di­rected racist slurs at a Nige­rian-born player in the mi­nors 10 years ago.

Gen­eral man­ager Brad Tre­liv­ing said that Peters re­mains with the Flames af­ter the al­le­ga­tions raised by Akim Aliu on so­cial me­dia Mon­day. Aliu al­leged Peters “dropped the N bomb sev­eral times to­wards me in the dress­ing room in my rookie year be­cause he didn’t like my choice of mu­sic.” It hap­pened dur­ing the 2009-10 sea­son while the two were with the Chicago Black­hawks mi­nor-league af­fil­i­ate in Rock­ford, Illi­nois.

Tre­liv­ing of­fered no time­line and said he didn’t know if Peters would be be­hind the bench against the Sabres on Wed­nes­day.

NCAA RE­JECTS MIS­SOURI AP­PEAL » The NCAA has re­jected an ap­peal by the Univer­sity of Mis­souri to limit or over­turn sanc­tions for in­frac­tions tied to the case of a for­mer tu­tor.

The foot­ball, base­ball and soft­ball teams were banned from the post­sea­son for a year, the en­tire ath­letic depart­ment was placed on pro­ba­tion and Mis­souri was docked schol­ar­ships and given recruiting re­stric­tions.

The case dates to 2016 when tu­tor Yolanda Ku­mar ac­knowl­edged she had vi­o­lated NCAA rules by do­ing course work and en­sur­ing ath­letes in foot­ball, base­ball and soft­ball passed cer­tain cour­ses.
