NEW YORK - The Angels promoted one of their top relief-pitching prospects to the big leagues Sunday, calling up right-hander Mike Morin, 22, from triple-A Salt Lake and optioning outfielder Brennan Boesch to triple A. Morin, who is scheduled to arrive in Yankee Stadium by game time, began the season at double-A Arkansas, where he did not allow an earned run in five innings of five games. He was promoted to triple A on April 16, and in four games for Salt Lake, he gave up four earned runs in three innings.

Ryu Hyun-jin could immediately be a No. 3 starter in a major league rotation, according to his agent. “He's ready to pitch in the big leagues right now,” Scott Boras said. “He's not a developmental project.” The Dodgers bid $25.7 million to win a league-wide auction for the right to negotiate with Ryu, a seven-time South Korean All-Star. Ryu and the Dodgers have 30 days to reach an agreement. Ryu intends to be a starting pitcher, according to Boras. How the Dodgers want to use Ryu will be one of the factors he will consider when deciding whether to sign with the Dodgers or return to the Hanwha Eagles.

Two days of cautious optimism on the NHL labor front came to a screeching halt Thursday when the league summarily dismissed a trio of counteroffers made by the players' association during a negotiating session in Toronto that broke off after little more than an hour. "It's clear we're not even speaking the same language in terms of what they came back to us with," said NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman, speaking to reporters in Toronto. Bettman had spearheaded the latest round of negotiations Tuesday by offering the players a new proposal revolving around a 50-50 split of league revenue that the league said was designed to salvage the full 82-game regular season.

This post has been updated. See below. The NHL Players' Assn. on Tuesday requested a meeting with the NHL, but league executives have not scheduled another bargaining session. The league, which locked players out Sept. 15, last week set a deadline of this Thursday for having a new, written collective bargaining agreement in place and preserving a full schedule this season. Without any negotiating sessions planned, the prospects of a full season being played appear dim. “They have indicated a willingness to meet, but at this point there is nothing to meet about,” NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly said by email Tuesday night.

Any optimism that a deal between the NHL and the Players' Assn. might be imminent following the union's presentation of a “comprehensive” collective bargaining proposal Wednesday morning lasted only a few hours. That's all it took for the sides to meet and for the NHL to reject the proposal, in which players said they had made moves toward the NHL's stance in several areas. “We are still far apart. It's frustrating for everybody,” NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman told reporters in New York.

GRANT LAST SEASON: 5-11, 3-7 in league THIS SEASON: Coach Howard Levine is pragmatic about his team's chances in league play. "I think we have a realistic shot at the City playoffs," said Levine, in his first year after taking over for retired Bill McKee, who coached the Lancers for the past 27 years. If the Lancers make a move, junior Danny Enowitz, a 6-1 swingman, will probably show the way. "He just might lead us to the promised land," Levine said.

Gerrit Cole had an impressive major league debut Tuesday … a nd he pitched well too. Cole, a former UCLA pitcher, was called up by the Pittsburgh Pirates and sent out to face the San Francisco Giants. Cole had already pitched two scoreless innings when he came to the plate with the bases loaded. He fell behind, 0-2, worked the count full and then singled to right to drive in two runs. “I got a little lucky,” Cole told reporters after the game. “That was my first hit since high school.” Lucky or not, the Pirates' Andrew McCutchen told reporters, “He looked like a big league hitter working the count like that.” As for the pitching part, Cole lived up to being the first overall pick in the 2011 draft.

The confetti, balloons and signs had all been swept up and dumped, and cleanup crews were going home. Ackerman's daughters, Emily, 4, and Sally, 2, squealed happily when they saw their mom, and of course demanded: "What did you bring us?"

Hanley Ramirez was smiling Sunday. Clayton Kershaw wasn't. Whereas Ramirez was able to pinch-hit a day after he bruised his surgically repaired right thumb, Kershaw was informed by the Dodgers he would pitch in another minor league game before making his return from the disabled list. Asked whether he was fine with the team's decision, Kershaw replied, "Not really. " Sidelined because of a strained back muscle, Kershaw hasn't pitched for the Dodgers since the their season opener in Australia on March 22. Kershaw wanted to pitch for the Dodgers on Wednesday in Minnesota.

The Catholic Athletic Association voted Tuesday to add Cathedral to a four-team league made up of Loyola, Bishop Amat and Gardena Serra for football only. Previously, Salesian was in the league but won an appeal, forcing the CAA to take another vote. The league is expected to be in the Pac-5 Division. Cathedral was selected over St. Francis.

Cathedral will appeal to the Southern Section Council on April 30, football Coach Kevin Pearson said.

YANGON, Myanmar - Win Tin, one of Myanmar's most respected opposition leaders who was jailed for nearly two decades by his country's military rulers, died early Monday. He was 84. His death, attributed to organ failure, came as Myanmar marked the end of Thingyan, the Buddhist New Year, and five weeks after he was admitted to Yangon's main hospital on the evening of his 84th birthday. A former journalist who in 1988 co-founded the National League for Democracy Party with his longtime ally, Aung San Suu Kyi, Win Tin was one of the most prominent leaders of the movement to challenge the military junta that ruled what was then known as Burma.

DETROIT - Mike Trout was 20 and Bryce Harper was 19 when they played for the Scottsdale Scorpions in the Arizona Fall League in 2011. Neither had set foot in the big leagues by then, but it was clear to Angels catcher Hank Conger, a Scorpions teammate, that both outfielders were destined for greatness. "It was one of those things where you see them, you know they're young, and you know they're really good," Conger said before a 2-1 loss Sunday to the Detroit Tigers in Comerica Park.
