Alex Reyes ‘not worried’ about velocity dip in return from Tommy John surgery

Cardinals starting pitcher Alex Reyes returned from Tommy John surgery Wednesday, making his first start since 2016.

Reyes lasted just four scoreless innings, striking out two batters before leaving with an apparent injury. After the game, Reyes said he felt fine and was unconcerned with the velocity dip he suffered midway through the outing.

I felt fine, a little fatigued but anything beside that, I wasn’t really worried about, Reyes told reporters. I’m not really worried about it now.

Reyes, 23, was removed from his season debut after throwing 73 pitches. He is lined up to face the Marlins at home next Tuesday as long as his health checks out in the next week.

San Diego scored the go-ahead run in the sixth on a throwing error by catcher Nick Hundley.

Giants: The team is undecided what the next step will be for Jeff Samardzija after the right-hander gave up four runs in four innings with Triple-A Sacramento on Thursday. Manager Bruce Bochy said it’s possible Samardzija will make at least one more rehab start before rejoining the big league club.

RHP Jordan Lyles (2-4, 4.46 ERA) pitches for San Diego on Saturday in the third game of the series. It will be Lyles’ ninth start, his most since 2015. LHP Andrew Suarez (2-4, 4.70) goes for San Francisco.

The way we’re playing right now is how we expected to play all year, Gennett said. It’s a lot of fun.

Fulmer threw Gennett a slider that was headed for the dirt on a 1-2 count, only to see it sail out to right field aided by the wind.

I thought it was a great pitch, Fulmer said. I’m mad at the results, but I’m not mad at the way I pitched.

Suarez hit Fulmer’s next pitch to left field, with the ball landing on the top of the wall and bouncing back into play. The Reds sounded their home run siren and shot off fireworks, but the umpires ruled the ball was in play and stopped Suarez at second base.

After a review of 1 minute, 12 seconds, the hit was ruled a homer — replays indicated the ball skipped off the top of the wall and deflected off a railing behind it.

Adam Duvall added a solo shot in the eighth as the Reds out-homered the Tigers 3-2.

That’s the way it is here, manager Ron Gardenhire said.

Jon Gruden Jersey hopes to quickly resolve Khalil Mack deal

Oakland Raiders linebacker Khalil Mack didn’t report Tuesday on the first day of the team’s mandatory three-day minicamp.
Men's Nike Chicago Bears #27 Sherrick McManis Limited Green Salute to Service Tank Top NFL Jersey
Whether Mack shows up for the final two days remains unclear, but his head coach wouldn’t mind seeing the defensive star back on the field sooner than later.

Yes sir, yes you will, Beckham said as he hopped on a golf cart and left the field.

When asked about a potential holdout, he said: No, no holdout.

Beckham did not stick around to answer Mike Hull Jersey any more questions. He has not addressed Giants reporters since Oct. 4, 2017, and has done only one limited interview since then — during the Super Bowl with, when Beckham said it was time Womens Nate Thompson Jersey to get his contract extension over with.

He was scheduled for a group interview session at the start of this camp, but that never materialized.

LHP CC Sabathia (7.2IP, 10H, 3ER, 1BB, 10K, 1HP) started and took the loss…threw a season-high 7.2IP (tossed 7.0IP on 6/5 at Toronto and 4/29 at Los Angeles-AL), his longest start since tossing 8.0 scoreless innings on 6/7/17 vs. Boston…did not allow a HR for the second straight start after permitting HRs in five straight…was just his second loss in 13 starts this season.

Recorded his 38th career double-digit-strikeout game, his first since 8/17/16 vs. Toronto (12K)…is just his second 10K+ game in 107 starts since the start of 2014…his 38 games with 10K+ are seventh among active pitchers (Scherzer-74, Kershaw-59, Sale-57, Verlander-44, Kluber-43, Strasburg-39)…his previous 2018 season high was 7K on 5/4 vs. Cleveland…at 37 years, 331 days, is the oldest Yankee to record 10K in a game since Andy Pettitte (40 years, 313 days) on 4/24/13 at Tampa Bay (10K).

Jeremy Bates, the team’s new offensive coordinator tasked with developing Darnold, made that clear on Wednesday before the second practice of the team’s mandatory minicamp, saying the highly hyped signal-caller hasn’t flinched.

We’re throwing everything at him, Bates said, in his first public comments since being elevated to his current position with the Jets. If he can handle it, if he can prove that he’s the starter, then that will take place when the time comes.

Mike Foltynewicz Jersey injury update: Braves place starter on DL with right triceps tightness

The Braves have placed starting pitcher Mike Foltynewicz on the disabled list with right triceps tightness, the team announced Saturday.
Limited Youth Roger Craig Olive Jersey: NFL Nike San Francisco 49ers #33 2017 Salute to Service
Atlanta activated starter Julio Teheran to take his place on the active roster.

Foltynewicz originally suffered the injury in his start Tuesday against the Mets. He pitched five shutout innings and allowed just two hits in the game.

Because the 49ers have fewer concerns about their skill-position players, their incorporating three new starters and creating Shohei Ohtani Jersey cohesiveness on the line will be key for their offense.

The 49ers jumped at the chance to sign former Seahawk Richard Sherman, who just turned 30 and is coming off a half-season lost to a ruptured Achilles. Although the team will need to wait Jimmy Butler Jersey well into training camp to see him fully healthy and part of the defense physically, it already has seen Sherman lead a young secondary mentally and emotionally.

1. He’s a 6-1, 185-pound outfielder from the Dominican Republic. He was called up to the majors from Double-A Harrisburg in mid-May after Howie Kendrick suffered a season-ending Achilles tendon injury.

2. Soto signed with the Nats as a 16-year-old in 2015 as a member of Washington’s July 2 international class that year. He didn’t make his professional debut until June 2016 in the rookie-level Gulf Coast League, however. That means Soto played his way through all the levels of Washington’s minor league system (and skipped Triple-A, to boot) in less than two years.

3. Counting the two homers he hit Wednesday, Soto now has 19 dingers in 2018 (five in the bigs, 14 in the minors). He hit eight in his first two minor-league seasons, covering 83 games (injuries limited him to 32 games last season).

Falcons sign Jaeden Graham, waive Joey Ivie

The Falcons announced they signed tight end Jaeden Graham on Friday. In a corresponding move, they waived defensive tackle Joey Ivie with an injury settlement.

Graham signed with the Raiders as an undrafted free agent out of Yale. He participated in their rookie minicamp.

Running back Ezekiel Elliott may be more talented, but there is no young player in Dallas who is going to influence wins and losses more than quarterback Dak Prescott.

According to Pro Football Reference’s expected points model, Dallas’ rushing offense was best in the league with 47 points over expectation last year. So the run game seems solid, but when Prescott dropped from a 104.9 passer rating in 2016 to an 86.6 passer rating in 2017, Dallas went from a number one seed in the NFC to missing the playoffs completely.

But he’s still just a 24-year-old passer who posted the most efficient rookie season of any passer ever. Playing under a cost-controlled rookie contract, Prescott has years to prove that he still is the player from 2016 before Dallas even thinks about moving on.

Behind enemy lines : Murphy, a Massachusetts native, confirmed to Francesa he grew up a Red Sox fan. But I’m not looking to start any fights with fans of other great baseball teams, he added.

Online betting : Francesa’s big issue the other day was the fact New Jersey will have a 30-day wait before it has online sports betting:

Wait a second. If you’re New Jersey, why would you put out a release like this?… What kind of way? If you’re a government, you do business that way. If you’re a private business, you would never – you would fire people if they did business that way. ‘Here it is, our grand opening, and we’re not open? You think Amazon does that? You think Apple does that? You think Apple says, ‘Hey, come to the Apple Store, we’re putting the phone on sale tomorrow, but we won’t have any for 30 days?’ That’s why when you give bureaucrats or anyone in government a chance to do something, they’ll screw it up.

But Murphy seemed to have a good enough explanation for Francesa.

Chris McCain Jersey Charged with Battery After Spitting on Woman, Grabbing Her Neck

Indianapolis Colts defensive end Chris McCain has been charged with two misdemeanor counts of battery, according to TMZ Sports.

Trump’s NFL? New Dictates Show How Slippery a Slope League’s Anthem Policy Is

No Philadelphia Eagles player knelt or remained in the locker room during the national anthem last year.

That fact needs to be emphasized, reinforced and restated as often as possible in the hours and days to come. Already, the President of the United States and his staunchest supporters are implying they did. Already, major news outlets have repurposed images of Eagles players kneeling in prayer Adam Thielen Authentic Jersey to confuse the matter.

Paxton (6-1) gave up three runs and five hits in seven innings. The left-hander has allowed just 14 earned runs over 63 2/3 innings in going 5-0 over his last nine starts.

After the third inning, I had a little forearm cramp going on and I kind of went out a little hesitant in the fourth inning because I didn’t want to let it rip and have something go on me, Paxton said. Then I figured out that it was fine and I was able to get back to letting it rip again.

People ask me a lot, ‘Is it your dream to get to the big leagues?’ Mize told Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press. I’m like, ‘Yeah.’ Is it your dream to be the No. 1 overall pick?’ I’m like, ‘No.’ Never in a million years did Womens D.J. Fluker Jersey I think that would be an option, and so when I was growing up, that was never a goal or anything.

Regardless of whether he’s picked first, Mize will join Frank Thomas, Gregg Olson, Chris Bootcheck and Gabe Gross as the only Auburn players to be selected in the first round of the draft. An even more fitting Auburn comparable: Tim Hudson, who was chosen by Oakland in the sixth round of the 1997 draft and went on to win 222 games and make four All-Star teams over 17 seasons with the Athletics, Atlanta Braves and San Francisco Giants.

Brewers bring Eric Thames Jersey off DL

The Milwaukee Brewers activated first baseman Eric Thames off the disabled list on Monday.
Women's Richard Jefferson Swingman Navy Blue Nike Jersey: NBA Denver Nuggets #22 City Edition
Thames had been out since late April with a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his left thumb. He is not listed in the starting lineup for the Brewers’ series opener against the visiting Chicago Cubs.

Through 22 games, Thames had seven home runs, 13 RBIs and a slash line of .250/.351/.625.

The NL Central-leading Brewers made the deal Sunday and assigned Miller to Triple-A Colorado Springs. He was cut by Tampa Bay on Thursday.

At Billy Smith Jersey this point we thought that the positional versatility and the infield experience that Miller brings would be helpful, Brewers general manager David Stearns said, according to the Journal Sentinel. He will head to Triple A, and when we have a need, I’m sure he will be ready to contribute.

The 28-year-old Miller was hitting .256 with five home runs and 21 RBIs in 48 games for the Rays. Mostly a shortstop, he has started at every position in the majors except catcher and pitcher.

Miller hit 30 home runs for the Authentic Charcandrick West Jersey Rays in 2016 but dipped to just nine last year.

The 27-year-old Choi hit .233 with 2 homers and 5 RBIs in 12 games for Milwaukee.

The Brewers sent Choi to Triple-A Colorado Springs earlier Sunday, one day after he hit a go-ahead, pinch-hit grand slam in the Brewers’ 12-3 win over the Phillies.

Arizona is 5-2 in June after losing 13 of 14 at one stretch of May.

Cardinals second-round pick Christian Kirk Jersey has charges dismissed after February arrest

Almost three months before the 2018 NFL Draft, Christian Kirk was arrested and charged with damaging property and disorderly conduct-disruptive behavior. News of Kirk’s arrest didn’t break until after the Cardinals selected him in the second round, which called into question the team’s decision to draft the former Texas A&M wideout. But on Wednesday, good news for Kirk and the Cardinals arrived.
Men's Adidas Buffalo Sabres #31 Chad Johnson Authentic Navy Blue Home NHL Jersey
The numbers from the game read like something from a science fiction novel. And Watson walked away with a piece Allen Iverson Jersey of history—becoming the first player in the Super Bowl era to record at least 400 yards passing, four passing scores and at least 50 rushing yards in a single game.

By the time the game was over, Watson had compiled 19 passing touchdowns for the season, the most ever by a rookie in his first seven games. Do you know who he passed? It was Hall of Famer Kurt Warner, who had 18 through the first seven games of the 1998-99 season. 

Watson also had a rookie-record three-plus passing scores in four straight games.

Despite the 41-38 loss to Seattle, the game was, in many ways, the coming-out party for the DeFest Crew—Deshaun and DeAndre.

That Seahawks defense wasn’t fazed by much, but many of Seattle’s All-Pros made a point to say they were stunned by Houston’s offense that day. There was a feeling they had just witnessed the future.

He’s not been able to match the 10-touchdown season he put together in 2015. Williams is a potentially gifted outside receiver who has seen his yards per catch drop in each Chris Wormley Youth Jersey of the last four seasons, even as his catch rate has risen. Beasley is a productive slot receiver, but at 5’8and 180 pounds, that’s all he is—you’re not going to see him smoking Aqib Talib outside on a deep vertical route. And to replace Witten, the Cowboys have a committee of Geoff Swaim, Blake Jarwin, Rico Gathers and fourth-round rookie Dalton Schultz. Not exactly a Murderers’ Row.

Show of kindness makes Cardinals’ Gresham internet hero

Much to his surprise, a $50 act of kindness made Arizona Cardinals tight end Jermaine Gresham an internet hero.

It was crazy, he said after the Cardinals went through voluntary workouts Tuesday. I really wasn’t expecting it.

It all started when Gresham was standing in line behind Delilah Cassidy at an American Airlines gate at Los Angeles International Airport.

I gave him this huge hug, she said. I was crying into Jermaine Gresham. I didn’t know it was him.

Cassidy said that when they landed, she offered to pay him in cash but he declined and told her to pay it forward.

The Bears placed Miller on the physically unable to perform list on Tuesday, one day after he signed a one-year contract. The deal was at least a goodwill gesture for a popular player who dislocated his knee trying to make a touchdown catch during the Week 8 game at New Orleans. He has undergone nine surgeries since then, but was walking on his own by late December.

Miller has been spending several hours a day at the team’s facility in rehab and meetings. Though he is not yet allowed to run, he can at least play with his children.

He’s also wearing a brace on his leg to hold up a dropped foot that was brought on by nerve damage. The nerve started functioning again in the past month, and Miller wanted to have a party that day.

I don’t think I’ve ever been mentally defeated — ever, he said. I feel good. I’m happy with where I’m at and with my recovery. I’m happy with the steps that we’ve made. Positivity has been one of my qualities that’s helped get me through all this stuff. I’m in a good place right now.

He said being around the team, having that brotherhood and people who check in on me helps.

Miller also praised chairman George McCaskey and an organization that has taken care of me since Day 1.

The Jets are expected to sign RB Isaiah Crowell Jersey to a three-year contract.

Crowell went undrafted in 2014 and spent the first four seasons of his career as Cleveland’s primary early-down and short-yardage back. Crowell has finished top-25 at the position in carries and rushing yards each of the past three seasons.
Reebok NHL Women's Antoine Vermette Orange Third Authentic Jersey - #50 Anaheim Ducks
The Jets revamped their quarterback room on Tuesday by adding both Teddy Bridgewater and Josh McCown to the mix. McCown has reportedly been assured starting duties, but there’s no doubt the Jets will need to be looking further down the road, so Bridgewater and/or a potential selection in April’s draft will be nipping at the 38-year-old’s heels all season long. Bridgewater was Minnesota’s first-round pick back in 2014. Following promising 2014 and 2015 seasons, he seemingly was on the verge of a third-year breakout prior to suffering a devastating injury in practice that almost cost him his left leg. Bridgewater figures to make some starts this season, but unless the matchup is great, he’s unlikely to Cole Beasley”>”>Cole Beasley Womens Jersey be one of the best 12 options at the position. He’s only worth holding in dynasty leagues.

The Rams paced the NFL in three-plus wide receiver sets when passing (92 percent), so Watkins was on the field for a hefty 88 percent of the team’s pass plays when active. That wasn’t enough to generate much volume, as he was limited to a career-low 14 percent target share (he averaged 25 percent in Buffalo). The result was 39 receptions on 67 targets for 593 yards and eight touchdowns. The inflated touchdown total allowed Watkins a 41st-place finish in fantasy points, but his 4.2 OTD and six end-zone targets suggest that it was a fluky number.
Game Mens Thurman Thomas Jersey
The first is competition for a large target share in an offense that needs to support Tyreek Hill, Travis Kelce and Kareem Hunt, the latter of whom Reid said he plans to throw to more in 2018 and beyond. Watkins should improve on the 4.5 targets per game that he saw in Los Angeles but likely not to the extent that you’d expect from a player once viewed as a franchise player.

The Chiefs also changed from Alex Smith to Patrick Mahomes at quarterback, which is probably good news for field-stretching Watkins, as Mahomes is less conservative and has a bigger arm. Of course, we knew Smith was a solid, efficient passer, whereas Mahomes has one NFL game under his belt and is a relative unknown. If the 2017 first-round pick proves to be the real deal, Watkins will benefit.

NFL stars ‘threaten to sit out games until Colin Kaepernick Jersey and Eric Reid are signed by new teams’

NFL stars ‘threaten to sit out games until Colin Kaepernick and Eric Reid are signed by new teams’ More Several NFL stars are reportedly considering not playing until Colin Kaepernick and Eric Reid are signed by teams.
Women's St. Louis Blues #22 Chris Thorburn Reebok Navy Blue Third Authentic NHL Jersey
According to columnist Shaun King, the protesting players are hoping that up to 25 per cent of the league will join them in sitting out. In 2016, Kaepernick drew worldwide attention and sparked a protest movement after he began to kneel during the national anthem to raise awareness of racial equality and police brutality. He has been without a team since leaving the San Francisco 49ers in March 2017, with Reid, Kevin Long Youth jersey who joined his teammate in kneeling, also still unsigned.

Bortles was given a three-year extension this offseason, which showcases the Jaguars commitment to his development. If he can take his game to the next level they may have what it takes to get to the Super Bowl. I’m not completely sold on him, but Jacksonville has the deepest roster in the NFL for my money.

An ACL tear in training camp ended聽Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill’s 2017 season before it began.

That second straight season ended by injury (and Tannehill’s robust salary) led to speculation that the Dolphins might address the quarterback position early in this year’s draft. Miami passed on that, however, and as Andy Cohen reported for the team’s website, Tannehill is overjoyed to be back practicing with his teammates.

It feels amazing, Tannehill said. It’s been a long road, a lot of hard work and a lot of time and effort.
