AROUND THE WEB:

— Baseball Hall of Famer and Giants legend Willie McCovey was one of the 273 people to be pardoned or have a sentence commuted by Barack Obama on Tuesday in the last days of his presidency.

In 1995, McCovey and fellow Hall of Famer Duke Snider pled guilty to tax evasion and received a $5,000 fine and a two-year probation.

“I want to express my sincere gratitude to President Obama not only for this kind gesture on my behalf, but also for his tireless service to all Americans,” McCovey said in a statement made through the Giants. “He will be deeply missed and I wish him all the best in the future.”

McCovey, the cove namesake, is now a senior advisor to the Giants.

Obama pardoned 64 people and commuted the sentences of 209.

— Clippers guard Chris Paul will undergo surgery on Wednesday to fix a torn ligament in his left thumb, which he sprained during the Clippers’ win over the Thunder on Monday night. He is expected to miss six to eight weeks.

And MRI revealed the torn ligament on Tuesday.

Paul underwent surgery to repair a torn thumb ligament during the 2012 offseason. He also broke his right hand in a game during the 2016 playoffs.

 

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “I could not care less. I’m focused on Pittsburgh and their defense and studying them as much as I can this week, watching them as much as I can so I can go out there on Sunday prepared.” — Chris Hogan, on Roger Goodell deciding not to attend the Patriots-Steelers AFC Championship game
