By extending a qualifying offer, a team is in line to receive draft-pick compensation if the player signs with another team. Kershaw has a 153-69 regular-season record with a 2.39 ERA in 318 games but is 9-10 with a 4.32 ERA in the postseason.

The department determined that McCormick's death was accidental - making him the latest in a string of overdose deaths involving the opioid fentanyl. It wasn't necessarily the amount of a certain drug over another that killed him, but the combination.

According to the report (via TMZ), Mac's assistant found him unresponsive on his bed in a "praying position", kneeling forward with his face resting on his knees. He was already "blue" when someone called 911.

Miller had an abrasion on the bridge of his nose, and blood was coming out of one nostril, the report said. According to the report, "a white powdery substance, non-prescribed medication, prescription medication, and a rolled 20 dollar bill with white powder residue were collected from the scene and booked into evidence". Pills reportedly recovered from the home included Xanax, Oxycodone, Hydrocodone, and generic Adderall.
