AROUND THE WEB:

— Angels pitcher Matt Shoemaker remained in a Seattle hospital Monday night after having surgery to stop bleeding on his brain due to being struck by a line drive in Sunday’s game against the Mariners.

Angels manager Mike Scioscia said he’s held off on calling Shoemaker, contacting him via text until things settle down.

“Everybody’s been texting him. I don’t think anyone wants to call him right now,” Scioscia said Monday. “We’ve exhaled a little bit since. They monitored him and decided they needed to do surgery. They went in there and hopefully corrected what was causing the bleeding. He’s resting comfortably and everything looks like it’s taken care of. Now it’s just the recuperation process for Matty. Our thoughts and prayers are with him.”

Shoemaker was pitching in the second inning Sunday when Kyle Seager lined a ball with an exit velocity of 105 mph, according to MLB Statcast, and it caught Shoemaker in the side of the head. He stumbled to the ground, although he was able to eventually walk off the field with assistance from the training staff.

General manager Billy Epps said Shoemaker was receiving CT scans every 2-3 hours, and the third image showed increased bleeding Sunday night, leading to the decision to operate.

— The 49ers appear to have run out of patience with players who cannot stay out of trouble, as they cut tight end Bruce Miller on Monday, hours after his arrest for assaulting two men in an altercation at a San Francisco hotel.

Police said Miller was intoxicated when he tried to enter an elderly couple’s hotel room around 2:45 a.m. Monday morning, and when the couple’s 29-year-old son told Miller he was in the wrong room, the player attacked the son and the 70-year-old father, who attempted to intervene. Both men were taken to the hospital.

— Johnny Manziel finally responded to a wave of criticism for wasting his football potential, promising fans, “I’ll be back,” despite remaining unsigned since being cut by the Browns earlier this year.

The hard-partying Manziel, whose immature behavior and legal problems have overshadowed his performance on the field since he won the Heisman Trophy at Texas A&M as a redshirt freshman in 2012, sent a message to fans of his alma mater after someone posted a video of one of Manziel’s touchdowns from his final season at the school in 2013.

Wrote Manziel: chills* I love A&M with all my heart I’m truly sorry. I’ll do whatever I can to make it right.I’m an AGGIE for life.

Later Monday, Manziel put up a post on Instagram with the caption: You all write about a day in my life and what goes on…here it is. No secrets, no hiding, I”m not what you read about. I’ll be back… In time. It can’t end like this…it won’t. I love you all even though your comments suck.

Last month the NFL announced that Manziel was suspended four games, reportedly for a violation of the league’s substance-abuse policy. The 23-year-old quarterback also is likely to face further discipline related to his domestic abuse case in Texas, for which he has been charged with misdemeanor assault.

Two agents have dropped Manziel since the season ended when he did not adhere to their demands that he seek treatment for drug and alcohol abuse. His family also expressed concern for his well-being.

— The former scouting director of the Cardinals apologized in federal court after being sentenced to 46 months in prison for hacking into the Astros’ player personnel database and email system in 2013.

Christopher Correa, who pleased guilty in January, also was ordered to pay $279,038 in restitution.

— With NBA free agency officially underway, Evan Turner reportedly has been getting interest from a few teams, including the Lakers. The Celtics, however, remain quiet.

Among the teams said to be interested in the shooting guard are the Knicks, Bulls, Pelicans, Mavericks and Grizzlies (according to The Sporting News’ Sean Deveney).

The Lakers reportedly have agreed on a four-year, $64 million deal with center Timofey Mozgov, who mostly sat on the bench for the Cavaliers during their title run, as they look to climb out of the Western Conference cellar.

The Knicks upgraded their roster with the acquisition of former MVP Derrick Rose in a draft-day trade, and they reportedly are closing in on a four-year deal with Joakim Noah. They have an opening at shooting guard and are said to be interested in a few free agents.

Turner, the No. 2 overall pick in 2010 who struggled to make an impact his first four seasons in the NBA with the 76ers and Pacers before arriving in Boston as a free agent in the summer of 2014, has indicated a desire to return to the C’s after averaging 10.0 points, 5.0 rebounds and 5.0 assists and 27.8 minutes per game over two seasons and reportedly being a positive locker room influence, but it’s not clear if Danny Ainge would spend the money to retain his services.

“I had some of the most fun playing basketball since I’ve played in the NBA,” Turner said recently on Yahoo Sports’ “The Vertical Podcast.” “We’ve had a great locker room. Boston was definitely a first-class organization. Brad Stevens did a lot for my career and my maturity.”

— A Canadian Football League game took a bizarre turn Thursday night courtesy of Montreal Alouettes wide receiver Duron Carter — son of NFL Hall of Famer and former ESPN analyst Cris Carter.

— An autopsy is scheduled for Wednesday on former Colts running back Zurlon Tipton, who died Tuesday after accidentally shooting himself while at a car dealership in suburban Detroit.

Tipton, a 26-year-old Detroit native who starred at Central Michigan, had brought his car into the Roseville dealership for service in the morning, general manager Mark DeMara told The Detroit News.

“At some point, he reached into a duffel bag that was on the passenger seat of his vehicle and the pistol that was in there deployed and shot the gentleman in the abdomen,” DeMara said.

Tipton initially was alert and talking as he was taken to the hospital, where he died of his injuries.

Police said there was a second firearm in the bag, but it’s unclear why he had them or who owned them. They ruled the death an accident.

Tipton played two seasons for the Colts after being signed in 2014 as an undrafted free agent. He appeared in 13 regular-season and three playoff games, scoring his first rushing touchdown in the AFC championship game against the Patriots on Jan. 18, 2015. He was waived on Dec. 21. Four days later, he was arrested and charged with criminal recklessness with a deadly weapon after firing a shot from an AR-15 rifle outside his girlfriend’s Indianapolis-area house. According to media reports, Tipton indicated he was attempting to protect his girlfriend from an ex-boyfriend who had threatened her. The prosecutor’s office did not pursue charges.

Colts wide receiver Donte Moncrief paid tribute to Tipton in an Instagram post Tuesday, writing: It’s crazy I just got that phone call bro cause I just talk to you and we talked about the future and teams giving you your second chance. No matter where I’m at or what team I’m on ill have that 37 on my wrist or glove.

— Days after Johnny Manziel’s father called the former Browns quarterback “a druggie” and said he hopes he ends up in jail for his own sake, Manziel posted an image on Instagram of himself overlooking a beach in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.

Manziel_Johnny mug shot 5-4-16— If anyone thought Johnny Manziel would finally get a wake-up call after his arrest Wednesday for domestic violence, the 23-year-old unemployed quarterback quickly made it clear that’s not the case.

Manziel, who is expected to appear before a judge in a Dallas courtroom Thursday morning, commented on Twitter about his mug shot photo, in which a smirking Manziel is wearing a gray T-shirt — unlike when he appeared shirtless when he was arrested in 2012 after a fight outside a bar near Texas A&M.

Tweeted Manziel: Just thankful I had a shirt this time.

Manziel was indicted by a grand jury last month after being accused of hitting and threatening to kill his former girlfriend during an incident in January. He faces a Class A misdemeanor and could be penalized with up to a year in jail and a $4,000 fine.

The former Heisman Trophy winner remains without a job after being released by the Browns following the season.

— Alex Rodriguez’s strained right hamstring has sent him to the 15-day disabled list, much to his dismay.

Rodriguez ended an early season skid and started producing in his previous four games — including a weekend series against the Red Sox in which he hit two home runs and had a four-RBI game — before he was injured running out a grounder in the fifth inning of Tuesday’s loss to the Orioles.

“I can’t think of a worse time to go on the DL,” said Rodriguez, who is hitting .194. “The whole offense has been struggling. I talked to the team [Tuesday] and I said there is no reason we can’t score five runs per night.”

AROUND THE WEB:

— The Warriors are one game from eliminating the Rockets in their Western Conference playoff series, but Sunday’s win might have come at a huge price.

Steph Curry sprained his knee on the final play of the first half and did not return in Golden State’s 121-94 victory that gave the Warriors a 3-1 series lead.

Curry, who missed the previous two games of the series recovering from a sprained ankle, was guarding Trevor Ariza outside the 3-point line when his left leg appeared to hit a wet spot and slid out from under him. His right knee then hit the floor while he was in an awkward position. He limped to the locker room, returned to the court before the start of the second half, but left after testing it out with some lateral slides.

“He was standing there crying, and [I was] like, ‘Dog, just get out of here. We’ll hold you down,’ ” Warriors forward Draymond Green told ESPN Radio after the game. “We’ve got to support him, and be there for him. He came out and obviously gave it a go, wasn’t 100 percent, and he gave it a go, and it’s unfortunate that that happened. But at the end of the day, one thing we’ve always talked about is our depth, and we’ve got to use that to win games, and so we used that tonight.”

Curry, who had hit just 2-of-9 shots and scored six points, is scheduled to have an MRI on Monday.

The Warriors banded together after Curry’s departure and put up 41 points in the third quarter — hitting a franchise-record eight 3-pointers in the period en route to an NBA record 21 in the game — to turn a tie game into a 21-point rout.

“When you have a team that is as together as ours is and cares about each other like ours does, you tend to pick up the fight a little bit,” coach Steve Kerr said. “Our guys sensed that we needed to come together.”

— Johnny Manziel has been indicted on a misdemeanor assault charge for an incident in January with his ex-girlfriend, according to reports out of Dallas.

Manziel’s case was heard by a grand jury on Thursday. The indictment is expected to be announced Monday. The maximum punishment for a misdemeanor assault is one year in jail and a $4,000 fine.

Schilling transgender post 4-19-16— Curt Schilling again finds himself in the middle of a political firestorm, as the ESPN baseball analyst and former Red Sox pitcher supported the conservative view in the debate about transgendered people and the public bathroom they should use, and as usual he expressed that view in an aggressive way.

Schilling, who is scheduled to appear on Dennis & Callahan with Minihane on Wednesday morning, shared on Facebook a graphic that featured a man dressed in suggestive women’s clothing with the statement: Let him in! To the restroom with your daughter or else you’re a narrow minded, judgmental, unloving, racist bigot who needs to die!!!

He added in another post: A man is a man no matter what they call themselves. I don’t care what they are, who they sleep with, men’s room was designed for the penis, women’s not so much. Now you need laws telling us differently? Pathetic.

The posts are a response to the controversy in North Carolina, where a law was passed directing individuals to use bathrooms based on their biological sex. Companies and entertainers have responded by boycotting the state or threatening to pull their business.

Schilling followed up with a blog post later Tuesday to “address all of you out there who are just dying to be offended to you can create some sort of faux cause to rally behind.”

In that post, he brought up his controversial tweet from last year that compared Muslims and Islamist extremists to Germans living during the time when Nazis took over their country. He blasted the media for failing to accurately portray his opinion on that subject — “All you fraudulent media folks, you lazy ass “don’t actually won’t to work for a story” clowns.”

He went on to insist he is not biased, and that people who criticize him are missing the point.

Wrote Schilling: You know how I know you ‘offended’ people are full of crap? Because I’m not even close to any of the things you so desperately want me to be, so you can whine. … You frauds out there ranting and screaming about my ‘opinions’ (even if it isn’t) and comments are screaming for “tolerance” and “acceptance” while you refuse to do and be either.

— Agent Drew Rosenhaus made good on his threat to drop Johnny Manziel as a client if he did not seek help for his personal issues, moving on from the former Browns quarterback Tuesday.

Manziel had hired Rosenhaus after his previous agent, Erik Burkhart, parted ways with him after last season. Manziel also was dropped by his marketing firm (LeBron James’ MMR company) in January, and news broke Tuesday that Manziel recently lost his endorsement deal with Nike, which signed him in March 2014 to a multiyear deal.
