     CLEVELAND (AP) - The Minnesota Twins have returned first baseman Joe Mauer from his rehab assignment and reinstated him from the disabled list after a 25-game absence because of a neck strain and concussion-like symptoms resulting from a dive for a foul ball. The move was made today before Minnesota's game at Cleveland. Third baseman Miguel Sano was sent to Class A Fort Myers on Thursday.
 
     Mauer went hitless in 10 at-bats over three games with Triple-A Rochester, but the Twins lineup badly needs a boost from the three-time American League batting champion. They're in the bottom third of the major leagues in most offensive categories.
 
     The Twins also recalled infielder Taylor Motter from Rochester after sending outfielder Jake Cave down on Thursday.

     NEW YORK (AP) - Hall of Famer Oscar Robertson will be honored with the NBA's Lifetime Achievement Award at the NBA Awards on June 25.
 
     Robertson, the career leader with 181 triple-doubles and the first player to average one for a season, was the NBA's Rookie of the Year in 1961, MVP in 1964 and won a championship with Milwaukee in 1971. The guard was a nine-time selection to the All-NBA first team and was voted one of the league's 50 greatest players.
 
     He also was co-captain of the 1960 U.S. team that won an Olympic gold medal and led Crispus Attucks High School to consecutive Indiana state championships, the first all African-American team in the nation to win a state title.
 
     Robertson also was president of the National Basketball Players Association from 1965-74, and the settlement of his anti-trust lawsuit against the NBA - known as the Oscar Robertson Rule - ushered in free agency in the league.
 
     Bill Russell won the award last year in the first season of the awards show.

    SAN ANTONIO (AP) - A person familiar with the situation says Kawhi Leonard has told the San Antonio Spurs that he would like to be traded this summer, the clearest sign yet that the relationship between the team and the All-Star is in disrepair.
 
     The person says Leonard has decided that he is "unhappy with the situation" in San Antonio. The person spoke with The Associated Press today on condition of anonymity because neither the player nor the team commented publicly. Yahoo Sports first reported Leonard's hope for a trade.
 
     Leonard played in only nine games with the Spurs this past season because of a leg injury. In the 2016-17 season, he averaged a career-best 25.5 points and was third in the MVP voting.

      PHILADELPHIA (AP) - The Philadelphia Eagles are sporting some bling to commemorate their Super Bowl victory. Players, coaches and organization members received their rings during a red-carpet party in Philadelphia on Thursday night.
 
     Cast in 10-karat white gold, the ring features 219 diamonds and 17 green sapphires. For the first time, the rings are inscribed with each player's signature. The ring honors Eagles fans with a silhouette of Lincoln Financial Field and the title of the team's fight song, "Fly, Eagles Fly."
 
     The ring also features a waterfall of 127 diamonds, paying tribute to the "Philly Special." The 127 diamonds represent the sum of the jersey numbers of the three players who handled the ball in the most memorable play of the team's 41-33 victory over the New England Patriots.
