Green Bay defensive tackle Mike Pennel has been suspended for the last four games of the regular season for violating the NFL’s substance-abuse policy after serving a four-game ban to start the year. Pennel will be eligible to return if the Packers make the playoffs. The team said it wouldn’t comment further on Tuesday’s announcement. The 25-year-old Pennel was an undrafted free agent out of Colorado State-Pueblo in 2014. He started five of the 16 games he played last season. Pennel has played in all eight games he was eligible for this season, collecting five tackles and no sacks.
The Boston Red Sox have gotten the setup man they wanted, acquiring right-hander Tyler Thornburg from the Milwaukee Brewers in a package that included infielder Travis Shaw. The deal was announced Tuesday and was the first trade at baseball’s winter meetings. Milwaukee also got minor league infielder Mauricio Dubon, minor league right-hander Josh Pennington and a player to be named or $100. The 28-year-old Thornburg will become Boston’s eighth-inning guy, setting up closer Craig Kimbrel for the AL East champions. Thornburg was 8-5 with 13 saves and a 2.15 ERA in 67 games for the Brewers, striking out 90 in 67 innings.
All-Star ace Chris Sale is joining the reloading Boston Red Sox, leaving behind his shredded reputation with the Chicago White Sox. Boston acquired Sale on Tuesday for a package of four prospects, including high-priced Yoan Moncada. Sale was a top trade target at the winter meetings and the AL East champion Red Sox were getting him instead of Washington, which also pursued. Boston acquired Sale for minor league pitchers Michael Kopech and Victor Diaz, outfielder Luis Basabe and Moncada, a third baseman.
