OAKLAND, Calif. Kawhi Leonard Spurs Jersey . -- Runs could be scarce when Toronto Blue Jays left-hander J.A. Happ and Oakland As lefty Rich Hill square off in the finale of a three-game series Sunday afternoon at the Oakland Coliseum.Happ is 12-3 with a 3.36 ERA in 18 starts this season in his second stint with the Blue Jays. Hill is 9-3 with a 2.25 ERA in 16 starts in his first season with the As.Hill was initially scheduled to pitch Friday night against Toronto, but his start was pushed back two days because of two blisters on the middle finger of his left hand. Hill said a blister developed late in his final start before the All-Star break against Houston and that another one appeared after he had a long throwing session on flat ground three days later on July 10.Its fine now, Hill said Saturday. Theres no issues. It feels good. .... I think it was more of a precautionary thing than anything, to make sure it was 100 percent healed. And we had the time to do that.Hill signed a one-year, $6 million contract as a free agent with the As during the offseason. Now hes drawing considerable interest from teams throughout baseball as the Aug. 1 non-waiver trade deadline approaches.Staying focused on the task at hand has not been a problem, Hill said.I think just focusing in on your daily routine and sticking with what you do on a day-in and day-out basis, so its not about anything else thats going on outside of what you can control, Hill said. Ive said that all year long.Happ has been on a roll since being traded by Seattle to Pittsburgh on July 31 last season. He went 7-2 with a 1.85 ERA in 11 starts for the Pirates then stayed hot after re-signing with the Blue Jays, with whom he played for from 2012-2014.That was the plan, that was the goal definitely, Happ said of picking up where he left off in Pittsburgh. I think just trying to be consistent. I always say thats the hardest thing in this game, but I do feel Im in a better place mentally for sure. And with my mechanics I feel like Im able to make adjustments. Just trying to stay there.Happ has gone 6-0 in his past six starts with an ERA of 2.95, 41 strikeouts and eight walks. He earned his 12th win, matching his career single-season high, on July 8, blanking Detroit over 5 2/3 innings. Happ struck out nine and walked one.Happ went 12-4 with Philadelphia in 2009 when he made 35 appearances, including 23 starts.According to Happ, one of the reasons hes having such a good season is that hes not as tough on himself as he used to be.Thats always been an issue of mine, Happ said. Thats probably part of the reason why I got here, but its also sometimes a negative for me because I can be pretty tough and I can carry it over for a long time. I feel like Im getting better about turning the page. I have a little better perspective about the game and everything. I think thats helped, some of the experiences Ive had.Happ will face an As team that won the first two games of the series, hitting three home runs each time, and can complete a sweep with a victory Sunday. Happ has allowed 13 home runs over 112 1/3 innings this season. Spurs Hoodie .J. -- New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz will miss the rest of the season after having surgery on his left knee.

BOSTON -- The Latest on the merger of daily fantasy sports companies DraftKings and FanDuel (all times local):2:05 p.m.A top daily fantasy sports player says hes watching closely how the merger of the nascent industrys leading companies -- DraftKings and FanDuel -- might impact his livelihood.Saahil Sud, a 27-year-old Boston resident, says hes concerned the newly formed company would have the clout to substantially raise fees on players.If the companies also merge their game platforms that could also limit how many contests high volume players like Sud can enter.The companies have assured players they wont be making major changes at least through the next NFL season while the deal is being finalized. Theyve also promised to keep fees competitive.Meanwhile Dustin Hecker, a Boston lawyer whos been following the industry, suggests the merger isnt any guarantee the companies remain viable in the long run.He notes that both companies remain unprofitable, still face legal uncertainty and will largely be operating as separate entities in the short term.---11:40 a.m.DraftKings and FanDuels executives say the last year of battling with regulators across the country for their industrys survival helped bring about the merger of the once bitter daily fantasy sports rivals.DraftKings CEO Jason Robins, who will take over as chief executive of the combined company, told The Associated Press Friday following the merger announcement that the costly legal war showed how much of a common vision and common goal the two companies shared. Kyle Anderson Jersey. FanDuel CEO Nigel Eccles, who will serve as board chairman, also played down concerns about the merger possibly running afoul of federal antitrust laws.He says the merger will help competition in the relatively new industry, which is an offshoot of traditional, season-long fantasy sports.Eccles says a combined company will help better push for regulatory clarity around the games, which have been likened to illegal sports betting.---9:33 a.m.Daily fantasy sports rivals DraftKings and FanDuel have agreed to merge after months of speculation and increasing regulatory scrutiny.The two companies made the announcement Friday but didnt release financial terms. The deal isnt expected to be finalized until later in 2017 and still requires federal approval.Industry experts say the merger will likely raise anti-trust concerns with regulators since the companies control nearly 90 percent of the market.Company officials say the merger will help cut costs as the two fight to remain legal in states across the country.Daily fantasy sports competitions are online games in which players pick teams of real life athletes and vie for prizes based on how those athletes perform in actual games.But state regulators have questioned whether the competitions amount to illegal sports betting.
