Coach who sued
out at Tennessee

KNOXVILLE (AP) — Tennessee is parting ways with associate strength and conditioning coach who sued the university for discrimination and retaliation last fall.
Tennessee athletic department spokesman Jimmy Stanton confirmed Thursday that Heather Mason has been “placed on administrative leave until June 3, at which time she will no longer be employed by the university.”
The move was first reported by the Knoxville News-Sentinel.
Mason, Tennessee associate director of sports medicine for women’s basketball Jenny Moshak and former associate strength and conditioning coach Collin Schlosser filed a suit last October that alleged they performed similar tasks as employees who held similar positions for men’s athletic teams, but that they received less pay because of their gender or because of their association with women’s teams.

Rockies’ Helton
on DL list again

PHOENIX, Ariz. (AP) — Todd Helton is back on the disabled list.
Sidelined by inflammation in his left forearm, the infielder was put on the 15-day DL Thursday by the Colorado Rockies, a move retroactive to April 20.
The 39-year-old is hitting .268 (11 for 41) with three doubles, one home run and 10 RBIs.
Colorado recalled infielder Ryan Wheeler from Triple-A Colorado Springs, and he started at third base and batted sixth against his former team.
The longtime face of the franchise, Helton was limited to 69 games last season because of a hip injury and had surgery in August to repair a torn labrum in his right hip.
A career .320 hitter, Helton batted .238 with seven homers and 37 RBIs in 2012.
Helton is a former quarterback at Tennessee.
