- Washington pitcher Joe Ross to have Tommy John surgery
By Associated Press - Saturday Jul 15, 2017
Kansas City pitcher Nate Karns will undergo surgery next week to remove a rib that’s causing nerve pain in his forearm.Karns was acquired from the Mariners in the offseason and was off to a promising start in Kansas City when his forearm started hurting.The right-hander was placed on the disabled list May 24 while the Royals began trying to determine the source of his nerve discomfort.After other therapies failed to ease the pain, Karns consulted a specialist in thoracic-outlet syndrome, which is caused by muscles attached to the uppermost rib causing a compression of nerves.Injured Houston left-hander Dallas Keuchel is scheduled to begin a rehabilitation assignment with Double-A Corpus Christi on Monday.The lefty probably will need multiple starts in the minors before he comes off the disabled list, but the Astros haven’t yet determined exactly how many he will need.The Red Sox placed reliever Joe Kelly (hamstring) on the DL and recalled reliever Brandon Workman from Triple-A.

- Mark Cavendish, Peter Sagan out of Tour de France
By Andrew Dampf and John Leicester - Tuesday Jul 4, 2017
VITTEL, France — Mark Cavendish was forced out of the Tour de France after suffering a fractured shoulder blade in a serious crash caused by world champion Peter Sagan, who was disqualified from cycling’s showcase event.Hours after Tuesday’s crash in a chaotic sprint finish to Stage 4, Cavendish’s Team Dimension Data said on its Twitter feed that “Unfortunately, @MarkCavendish has been forced to withdraw from #TDF2017.”The British rider suffered hand and shoulder injuries in the crash and was taken to a hospital for checks.The crash occurred about 50 yards from the end of the stage, when Sagan elbowed Cavendish, who was squeezed against the barriers to his right, out of the way.Cavendish slammed into the barriers and two other riders plowed over the British sprint specialist, a winner of 30 Tour stages.Fortunately, no surgery is required at this stage, and most importantly, there is no nerve damage.Race jury president Philippe Marien of the UCI said rules allowed organizers to disqualify riders in “serious cases.”“We have decided to disqualify Peter Sagan from the 2017 Tour de France after the tumultuous sprint here in Vittel, where he endangered several riders, including Mark Cavendish and others who were involved in the crash,” Marien said.In 2010, Australian Mark Renshaw was thrown out for a head-butt that cleared a path in a sprint for his teammate, Cavendish, to win the stage in Bourg-Les-Valence.There was another crash earlier that delayed Tour leader Geraint Thomas, but the Welshman retained the yellow jersey because it happened in the neutral zone near the stage finish.
- Big Data tells mortgage traders an amazing amount about you
By Matt Scully - Friday Jun 30, 2017
The New York startup sucks in data from marketing firms, public loan filings, courthouses and dozens of other sources, and sells it to mortgage bond and loan traders.The vivid detail the company turns up — the types of stores borrowers tend to shop at and whether they rent out their homes on Airbnb, for example — may unsettle privacy advocates, but it’s a boon for investors trying to figure out how likely homeowners are to pay their obligations.Across the world of finance, startups are using big data to try to improve Wall Street’s success with everything from consumer lending to stock trading.The average fund manager can gain 0.4 to 0.7 percentage point of return by using more intelligent data when trading mortgages, at least for home loans that haven’t been bundled into securities, according to John Ardy, CEO of Resitrader, an institutional marketplace for home loans.“We’re concerned about how this information is shared, and how it can have adverse consequences for individuals without their even realizing it,” said Lee Tien, a senior staff attorney at the Electronic Frontier Foundation, a nonprofit focusing on civil liberties.[...] money managers using information they get from TheNumber could face accusations of discriminating against borrowers based on race or religion if it turns out the factors the company looks at tend to single out particular types of people, said Frank Pasquale, a professor at the University of Maryland’s Francis King Carey School of Law.Fund managers that use TheNumber are typically buying subprime mortgages, many of which have defaulted.TheNumber tries to determine how much pride a homeowner probably has in his or her property, based on information it gleans from third parties, such as whether the resident tends to click on online ads from home improvement and gardening stores.Experian, for example, tries to make sure investors can’t readily determine borrowers’ identities when it hands out mortgage data, said Michele Raneri, a vice president of analytics and new business development at Experian.Added information about borrowers could boost transparency in the mortgage bond market, where getting information about creditworthiness and prices can be much harder than in other debt markets.“Investors in every other market get to see what they are buying — but not mortgage bond investors,” said Adam Murphy, founder of Empirasign Strategies LLC, a trading data firm for mortgage bond professionals.
