GUTIERREZ: Outman to return against Angels

Outman, 26, had Tommy John surgery on June 30, 2009 after leaving a game in San Diego with a strained elbow on June 19. He missed the entire 2010 campaign as he rehabbed from surgery and started the 2011 season in Sacramento.

Outman was tied for fourth in wins in the PCL with a 4-1 record, but his 27 walks ranked third worst in the league.

The A's also announced they have designated left-handed reliever Jerry Blevins for assignment. Blevins was recalled from Sacramento on Friday, and he pitched on Saturday against the Giants, going two-thirds of an inning, giving up a hit and intentionally walking one in the Giants' 3-0 win.

For the 2011 season, Blevins appeared in 15 games with no record and a 4.40 ERA.

Nuggets head coach Michael Malone suspended for game against Kings


Nuggets head coach Michael Malone suspended for game against Kings

Michael Malone won't be on the sideline when his Nuggets take on his former team on Monday night.

The NBA announced Monday afternoon that Malone has been suspended without pay for the game against the Kings.

The suspension stems from Malone "entering the court, halting play and making contact with a game official" during Denver's game against the Lakers on Sunday. The incident occurred midway through the second quarter.

Malone was hired as head coach of the Kings prior to the 2013-14 season. He was fired just 24 games into the 2014-15 season.

Coverage of the Nuggets and Kings gets underway at 6:30pm on NBC Sports California and streaming on the NBC Sports App.

49ers claim former Jaguars defensive lineman off waivers


49ers claim former Jaguars defensive lineman off waivers

The San Francisco 49ers' defensive line will have a new member coming off of the bye week.

The 49ers claimed defensive lineman Sheldon Day of waivers from the Jacksonville Jaguars on Monday. The Jaguars waived Day on Saturday in order to make room for the return of rookie wide receiver Dede Westbrook off of injured reserve. 

Day, a 2016 fourth round pick, posted 11 tackles and two tackles in 22 games over the last two seasons with Jacksonville. He played fewer than 30 snaps in all seven games with the Jaguars this season. 

Defensive lineman Arik Armstead, defensive tackle Tank Carradine, and defensive tackle Chris Jones are all on injured reserve, while defensive lineman Aaron Lynch missed the 49ers' last game in Week 10.

San Francisco ranks 22nd in the league in sacks, 23rd in pass defense, and 31st in rush defense.
