CANTON, Ohio (AP) - Michael Strahan is pleased to know he is scheduled to go last during the Pro Football Hall of Fame induction ceremonies. That means the former Giants star pass-rusher won't be the first to break down in tears once the 2014 seven-member class is inducted tomorrow. The group includes Oakland's Ray Guy, the first full-time punter inducted.

NEW YORK (AP) - The San Francisco Giants have designated second baseman Dan Uggla and outfielder Tyler Colvin for assignment after losing five of six on a horrid homestand. The Giants filled the two spots by calling up Double-A infielder Matt Duffy and outfielder Jarrett Parker before their game tonight against the New York Mets.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - The Los Angeles Angels placed left-hander Tyler Skaggs on the 15-day disabled list today because of a strained forearm and recalled left-hander Michael Roth from Double-A Arkansas. Skaggs was hurt last night in a 1-0, 13-inning win at Baltimore. The left-hander had not allowed a hit when he left with two outs in the fifth.

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - The Anaheim Ducks will retire Teemu Selanne's No. 8 jersey in a ceremony on Jan. 11. Selanne retired this year after a 21-season NHL career spent mostly with the Ducks. The Finnish Flash is Anaheim's career leader in goals, assists, games played and several other statistical categories.
