ANAHEIM, Calif. - The Los Angeles Angels have declined to offer contracts to infielder Gordon Beckham, right-hander Yoslan Herrera and left-hander Wade LeBlanc.The Angels announced their decisions Tuesday night, saving about $6 million in salary commitments for next season.Beckham earned $4,175,000 this year and likely would have received a raise to about $5 million in arbitration, more than the Angels wanted to pay for a probable backup infielder. Los Angeles acquired Beckham from the White Sox on Aug. 21, and general manager Jerry Dipoto has said the club would be interested in keeping him for less money.LeBlanc was a fill-in starter for the injury-troubled Angels down the stretch. He was waived by the club in June before returning. Air Max 270 Damen . By then it was clear: The 76ers were going to win for the first time in two months, and they were going to do it with ease.

Smiths former Atlanta teammates were glad to hang on for an ugly win.COPENHAGEN – It was bound to happen. With so many centres on the Canadian world junior roster some highly-skilled players were going to have to move. At Tuesdays practice it happened to be Jonathan Drouin, the third overall pick in last Junes NHL draft, and Connor McDavid, who is trying to become just the sixth 16-year-old to make the team. "We said earlier, when this all began, theres a chance when this all gets sorted that we have eight, nine centre icemen and guys have to get adjusted and McDavid may have to be one of those guys," head coach Brent Sutter said after the workout in Copenhagen, Denmark where the team has made camp this week. Sutter had McDavid on the left, draft-eligible Sam Reinhart on the right and Vancouver Canucks first rounder Bo Horvat in the middle on one new-look line. Drouin, who played left wing before shifting to centre with the Halifax Mooseheads this season, was back at his old position beside Nic Petan, Winnipegs second-round pick in June, and Curtis Lazar, who was picked 17th overall by Ottawa in the same draft. "I figured out pretty quick when I showed up here that theres pretty good centres here and they played there for a lot of years so, obviously, it doesnt really matter where they play me," Drouin said. "Not much different really. Ive been playing there [left wing] for so long." On Monday Drouin skated for the first time since sustaining a concussion on Dec. 6. That workout, however, was a short, more informal one with Sutter wanting to get the players legs going after a long journey to Europe. Tuesday was the first time Drouin, the only forward returning from last years squad, practised on a regular line. "With Petan not being a large specimen [5-foot-9, 166 pounds] we felt like having him and Drouin playing together, their skill and speed, would really be effective," said Sutter, "and only one of them could play centre so Drus certainly played the wing before so it made sense for us to have him on the wing right now." "I think me and Nic, we like to move the puck," Drouin said, "and Lasers a shooter, hes a big guy, a power forward a little bit and I think it should work pretty well." Unlike Drouin, McDavid doesnt have a history of playing on the wing, but didnt seem fazed by the challenge. "Im really excited about it," said McDavid, who has 12 goals and 38 assists in 31 games wwith the OHLs Erie Otters this season.dddddddddddd "Wing is a little different than centre obviously, but at the end of the day if youre the first guy back you got to play down low. Bo and I talked about it. We have three centremen playing on the same line right now so we all know what were doing down low and the wing." If McDavid makes the squad he will be lining up against players, who are not just older, but also more physically mature. Sutter points out that using the 6-foot, 182-pound McDavid on the wing should make his life a bit easier. "McDavid doesnt need to be the guy whos handling everything down low," said Sutter. "We could use a bigger body down low in our zone [6-foot, 203-pound Horvat], but ... theyre three natural centre icemen and they can certainly read off each other." The other lines at Tuesdays practice at Rødovre Arena in the Danish capital were: Taylor Leier - Scott Laughton - Anthony ManthaHunter Shinkaruk - Felix Girard - Charles HudonKerby Rychel - Frederik Gauthier - Josh Anderson And it seems likely most, if not all, of the lines will stay together this week as Canada holds two more practices before the first pre-tournament game on Friday against Finland. Sutters plan is to make the three cuts – four if defenceman Morgan Rielly is loaned to the team by the Toronto Maple Leafs – after that game. "You got to get some kind of continuity going," Sutter explained. "Guys got to get the feel for each other, get some chemistry with each other. If we can keep our lines, get them working together, that would be a good thing. You always try and work in pairs. Usually there are two guys on a line working together so when you get into game situations you may only have to move one guy around." Some pairings have emerged early in Canadas selection camp, which started Friday in Toronto. McDavid and Reinhart have been together during every on-ice session as well as Leier-Laughton and Gauthier-Anderson. Petan and Lazar have been together in two practices and were only split-up on Saturday, because Petan didnt dress for a scrimmage against a group of Canadian Interuniversity Sport players. "Wed like to have these guys get to know each other and get some chemistry and I think it shows each day in practice," said Sutter. "They seem to be getting better and better and used to each other."
