    Ark. lawmakers ban treatment for transgender youth
    By Daniel Trotta | Reuters
    Arkansas on Tuesday became the first U.S. state to ban certain types of treatment to transgender youth, overriding a veto by Governor Asa Hutchinson and inviting lawsuits from civil rights groups that have vowed to stop it.
    The law threatens any healthcare professional who provides puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones or gender-affirming surgery to minors with losing their medical license and opens them up to lawsuits from patients who later regret their procedures.

    Dodgers’ Corey Knebel has put 2020 behind him
    The Dodgers had good reason to believe Corey Knebel still had some life in his right arm when they acquired him from the Milwaukee Brewers in December.
    Knebel, 29, was not a good pitcher by any measure in 2020, his first season back from Tommy John surgery. In 15 appearances out of the Brewers’ bullpen, Knebel allowed four home runs, walked eight batters, and allowed nine runs in 13-1/3 innings. His fastball velocity had never been lower.
