  • Seminoles dismiss QB De'Andre Johnson after video
    Florida State Seminoles coach Jimbo Fisher dismissed freshman quarterback?? De'Andre Johnson??from the team Monday night, hours after the state's attorney's office released video showing Johnson punching a woman in the face last month at a Tallahassee bar. Fisher made the announcement in a brief statement released by FSU on Monday night. A source told ESPN.com on Tuesday that FSU officials hadn't seen video of Johnson punching the woman until it was published on the Tallahassee Democrat website Monday. The source said Fisher didn't see the video until Monday night -- shortly before he dismissed Johnson from the team -- because he was vacationing in a remote area of West Virginia. Johnson, who was named Florida's "Mr. Football" as a senior at First Coast High School in Jacksonville, Florida, was indefinitely suspended from the team in June. He was charged with misdemeanor battery for striking the 21-year-old woman during an argument June 24. He...

  • Bryce Harper to skip home run derby
    Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper is taking the night off before he plays in the All-Star Game. He told reporters Monday that he will skip the Home Run Derby. Harper had been invited to participate in the Derby for the second time. One reason Harper passed on the event is his father's recent surgery. Ron Harper pitched for Bryce Harper in the 2013 Home Run Derby, in which Bryce finished second to Yoenis Cespedes. Ron Harper had rotator cuff surgery after a snowboarding accident. "Not having my dad throwing to me is a big issue for me," Harper said, adding that his father "throws strikes" and knows where his "sweet spot" is. The fourth-year veteran has 25 home runs this season, tied with Todd Frazier and Albert Pujols for second in the majors behind Giancarlo Stanton (27). Harper led all National League players in being voted to his third All-Star team, which ...
