ATLANTA - While he rehabilitated from the Tommy John surgery that ended his 2013 season after just two starts, Chad Billingsley said he could somewhat envision the day of his return to the mound. But when he tore his flexor tendon while he was on the comeback trail, Billingsley questioned whether he would ever get back. "And here I am right now," he said with a big smile Monday afternoon at Turner Field, "taking the field [Tuesday] and pitching on a big-league mound. " More than two years since his last major-league start, Billingsley will officially complete his long road back from consecutive elbow surgeries Tuesday night against the Braves.

THE ARENA FOOTBALL League prides itself on fan interaction. But this is not what the league had in mind. Following his ejection for a third-quarter fight on Saturday night, Portland defensive back Quincy Butler unintentionally threw his helmet into the Wells Fargo Center stands and hit an unidentified female spectator. It was unclear whether the woman was injured, though she did leave her seat shortly afterward. Just moments before, Butler tangled up with Soul wide receiver Ryan McDaniel, who was blocking Butler downfield.

ST. LOUIS - The fluid state of the Phillies' starting rotation should create a slew of openings this season. A lack of depth, injuries, and potential trades could lead to opportunities for several members of the triple-A rotation. The first two factors led the Phillies in their 21st game to use their seventh starting pitcher already. Severino Gonzalez's turn to pitch proved brief Tuesday night in an 11-5 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals. Gonzalez was shelled in his major-league debut as the night amounted essentially to what the Phillies called up the pitcher to avoid: a bullpen game.

ST. LOUIS - The nerves weren't there for Severino Gonzalez last night. But one of baseball's best lineups was present at Busch Stadium, and it made his first big-league game a pretty forgettable one. Ten batters in, Gonzalez watched seven of the nine previos batters in the St. Louis Cardinals lineup reach base - and four come around to score, too - en route to an early exit in the Phillies' 11-5 defeat. "I wasn't nervous at all," Gonzalez said through interpreter and Phillies first-base coach Juan Samuel.

The thought around the NBA is that the 76ers hope to select D'Angelo Russell in the NBA draft, according to a league executive. "He's the guy they want," the executive, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said Saturday. "That's the word around the league. You know the Sixers. They won't come out and say it, but he's the guy they want. " The executive said the team might have to nab one of the top two selections at the draft lottery on May 19 to get the former Ohio State combo guard.

HOW FAR would someone go to win a football game? Lower Merion's Ari Wilen went all the way to Tel Aviv, Israel, to find success on the gridiron. Wilen is a 2014 graduate of Lower Merion High School, where he played varsity football for 3 1/2 years. The Bulldogs had almost as many wins as coaches during Wilen's time with the team. New coaches arrived in Wilen's sophomore, junior and senior years. Lower Merion won three games his sophomore season and put up goose eggs in when he was a junior and a senior.

The 76ers now say that Joel Embiid will participate in summer-league basketball after all. Sixers CEO Scott O'Neil was asked Tuesday by The Comcast Network if the center would play in the summer. "He will. Yes, he will," O'Neil responded. On April 8, coach Brett Brown would not commit to the 7-foot rookie's playing in the summer leagues. However, Brown said he would be disappointed if the former Kansas star did not play. Embiid missed the entire season as he recovered from right foot surgery.
