After stashing as many quality prospects as they could on their 40-man roster to ensure they remain with the franchise, the Yankees lost four players Thursday in the major league Rule 5 draft: pitchers Nestor Cortes, Jose Mesa Jr., Anyelo Gomez and first baseman Mike Ford. Cortes and Mesa were selected by Baltimore, Gomez by Atlanta and Ford by Seattle. While none is a top-shelf prospect, all had intrigue.
Robert Griffin III, who has spent much of this NFL season campaigning for jobs, says he does not have one because he’s turned a few down. The same free-agent quarterback who tried to pitch his way to the Texans after Deshaun Watson got hurt, who spent this summer flaunting his workouts on Instagram, now says that a few teams offered him contracts before the season, but those jobs weren’t right for him.
Major League Baseball is investigating if Shohei Ohtani’s questionable medical report leaking shortly after he selected a team — and rejected 29 — is merely a coincidence. On Tuesday, Sports Illustrated reported that the “Babe Ruth of Japan” had received platelet-rich plasma injection on his right, pitching elbow. Shortly afterward, Yahoo Sports reported he has a damaged ulnar collateral ligament, which could eventually lead to Tommy John surgery.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
