Ex-Rowdie Adu Freddy to join preseason practice with MLS Portland

PORTLAND, Ore. — Former Rowdie Freddy Adu will train with MLS's Portland Timbers during the preseason, the team said Wednesday.

Adu, 27, is expected to join the Timbers this week in training camp in Tucson, Ariz., the team said.

When he was 14, Adu was the No. 1 pick in the 2004 MLS SuperDraft, going to D.C. United. He is the youngest player to score in league history.

He left MLS for the first time in 2007 and bounced around Europe before a two-year stint with the Philadelphia Union from 2011-13. Overall, he played for 13 teams in 13 years.

His most recent team was the Rowdies, whom he signed with in 2015 but did not re-sign after last season.

    RHP Alex Cobb hates to hear how he "battled through" or "grinded out" a start rather than just dominated, but that's kind of what he did Friday, allowing nine hits and a walk and being charged with two wild pitches but only three runs in earning his 12th win.

    TAMPA — The wait felt like forever for Lightning captain Steven Stamkos, having gone 10 months without playing in a game.

    A scramble in front of the Lightning goal has Matthew Peca, far left, and Erik Cernak, middle, helping out goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy during the third period of a 3-1 win against the Predators. Vasilevskiy, who made 29 saves, was “exceptional,” coach Jon Cooper says.
