Doug Pensinger/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- As the NFL gets closer to the Draft, more and more information is leaked about perspective prospects, possibly to manipulate the draft boards. Pittsburgh Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert thinks it has to stop.

"I think it's horrible," Colbert added. "I think it's really bad for our profession when people use whatever means they use to get information out to try to influence the draft and they talk about a kid's test score, a kid's injury, a kid's character. I think that's awful. It's disrespectful to our profession, it's disrespectful to the game, it's disrespectful to the kid."

"We don't believe in mock drafts and what people are saying about other teams because so much of it is misinformation," he continued. "You'd just lose your mind trying to figure out what everyone's going to do. We're going to be true to what we do and feel good about it and live with it."

The first round of the NFL Draft is April 30.

Jason Wise/MLB Photos via Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The start of the 2015 season has been disastrous for Cincinnati Reds starting pitcher Homer Bailey. The team announced that he will need to go back on the disabled list with an elbow ligament sprain.

The severity of the injury if not known just yet, so there is no timetable for when he could return to the mound.

Bailey missed the first couple weeks of the season as he was still recovering from surgery last September to repair a torn flexor mass tendon near his elbow.

When he did pitch this season, the 29-year-old Bailey struggled mightily, going 0-1 with a 5.56 ERA in two starts.

Bailey is in the second year of a six-year, $105 million contract.

Tony Firriolo/MLB Photos via Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Another season brings yet another trip to the disabled list for shortstop Jose Reyes as the Toronto Blue Jays announced they've placed the former All-Star on the DL with a cracked rib.

Reyes tried to played through the injury, but found it to be too difficult. He thinks he suffered the injury a check swing earlier in the month against the Baltimore Orioles.

Despite sticking in the lineup, Reyes struggled, going just 3-for-23 (.130) with zero extra-base hits over his last six games. A switch hitter during his career, Reyes experimented batting strictly from the right-side to try and play through the injury.

Despite his talent, Reyes has had trouble staying on the field for years. While he did play in 143 games in 2014 and 160 games in 2012, he's missed at least 25 games five out of the last seven seasons.

(CLEVELAND) -- The NBA has suspended J.R. Smith two games after the Cavaliers guard backhanded Boston Celtics forward Jae Crowder, the league announced Monday.

During the third quarter of Cleveland's game four victory over Boston, Smith smacked Crowder in the face under the net. He was assessed a flagrant-2 foul and was immediately ejected.

"This is a situation that I put my teammates in, and it's a selfish act because I don't want anything that we do collectively to be taken away by one individual, whether it's me or anybody else,'' said Smith.

The Cavaliers will face the winner of the Bulls, Bucks series in the next round of the NBA playoffs.

(NEW MEXICO) -- UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones has turned himself into Albuquerque police after leaving the scene of an accident.

Jones ran from his rental car after running a red light and striking another car being driven by a pregnant woman in her 20's.

The young woman who Jones struck with his car suffered a broken arm and as a result the misdemeanor hit-and-run was upgraded to a felony.

According to police records, authorities found a rental agreement in Jones' name in the car as well as marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

Under New Mexico law, Jones could face a minimum of 18 months in jail or as many as 18 years. According to ESPN's Brett Okamoto, Jones could avoid jail time if he were to settle outside of court with the woman.

Jonathan Newton/The Washington Post via Getty Images(MISSOURI) -- Just days before the NFL draft, Missouri Tigers edge rusher Shane Ray has been cited for misdemeanor marijuana possession and a traffic violation.

The arresting officer detected the smell of marijuana after pulling over Ray, and after inspecting the vehicle found an amount in his possession.

Ray was issued a citation for not driving in the right lane of highway and possession of less than 35 grams of marijuana.

Shane released the following statement on Monday night:

"I’d like to apologize to my mother, fans and prospective NFL teams for my poor judgement Monday morning. I am embarrassed and realize there are consequences for my actions. I was not under the influence nor impaired, therefore I was not detained. Fortunately, Mondays incident only resulted in a citation. I will make better choices in the future. It is imperative that I continue to strive to better myself. My future NFL career has been something I have always dreamed about and is very important to me. I commit that my actions will represent that. There are no excuses here and I will take the necessary steps to ensure this will not happen again. I will not jeopardize my ability to have a positive impact on and off the field moving forward.”

Photos.com/Thinkstock(ARLINGTON, Texas) -- The Los Angeles Angels dealt outfielder Josh Hamilton to the Texas Rangers on Monday for a player to be named later or cash considerations. The Halos are expected to pick up most of the $80.2 million remaining on Hamilton’s three-year contract.

The five-time All-Star is currently on the 15-day disabled list, recovering from off-season right shoulder surgery.  During spring training, he informed Major League Baseball officials that he suffered a drug relapse.

“Over the course of the last few weeks, it became clear that Josh wanted to return to Texas,” said Angels general manager Jerry Dipoto. “After several discussions with the Rangers, we were able to complete a trade that in the end is the right decision for everyone involved.”

Hamilton spent five seasons (2008-2012) with the Rangers, where he batted .305 with 142 home runs and 506 RBIs. He was named the American League Most Valuable Player in 2010 after hitting a league-high .359 with 32 homers and 100 RBIs.

Brian D. Kersey/Getty Images(MIAMI) -- The Miami Marlins designated catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia for assignment on Monday. If no team claims him on the waiver wire, he will become a free agent.

The Marlins signed Saltalamacchia to a three-year contract, worth $21 million, prior to the 2014 season. In 123 games with Miami, he batted .209 with 12 home runs and 45 RBIs.

Saltalamacchia is just 2-for-29 (.069) with one home run on the season. With the nine-year veteran playing poorly, the Marlins turned to J.T. Realmuto as their starting catcher.

Saltalamacchia won a World Series title in 2013 with the Boston Red Sox.
