The Raiders signed fourth-rounder Nick Nelson, leaving them with just two unsigned draft picks.

Houston RHP Justin Verlander (5-2) opposes San Francisco RHP Jeff Samardzija (1-2) in the conclusion of this two-game series on Wednesday. Verlander lowered his ERA to an MLB-leading 1.05 by allowing five hits in a shutout of the Angels in his last start. Samardzija threw a season-high 6⅔ innings in his last start, the Giants’ 12-inning loss to Colorado.
This move was expected as Bell remains unsigned after the team franchise tagged the All-Pro back for the second consecutive year.
The Giants were excited about Apple’s potential after a promising rookie season. But it all fell apart last year. He was dealing with family issues that bled into his work conduct and performance.
It reached the point where safety Landon Collins called Apple “a cancer” late in the season. Apple believes that bad blood is in the past.
It’s great, he said of their relationship now. “It’s all about getting an understanding. We talked and put everything behind us. It’s about moving forward now.”
Apple, 22, was eventually suspended late last year for “a pattern of behavior that is conduct detrimental to the team” after an incident at practice involving a coach. It was a fitting end to a mess of a season.
