  Ron Vesely/Getty ImagesA star-studded class of 2018
Posted by: liny195 - 04-18-2019, 09:22 AM - Forum: Tutorials - No Replies

will be inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame Sunday.Third baseman Chipper Jones Carl Yastrzemski Jersey , first baseman/designated hitter Jim Thome, closer Trevor Hoffman, outfielder Vladimir Guerrero, starting pitcher Jack Morris and shortstop Alan Trammell combined to make the following resume, per Baseball Reference: 40 All-Star Games, 14 Silver Slugger awards, two regular-season MVP and two World Series MVP.Jones and Thome were each inducted after their first round on the ballot. Guerrero got the nod the second time around, while Hoffman made it after the third attempt. Morris and Trammell were inducted by the Veterans Committee.Here's a look at the viewing information tomorrow, as well as a quick preview. Viewing InformationThe official Hall of Fame induction ceremony will take place on Sunday. MLB Network will televise the event, and baseballhall.org will live-stream the action.MLB Tonight will be hosting a special Hall of Fame edition from 11 a.m. ET to the ceremony's start time of 1:30 p.m. ET. Ceremony coverage will run through 4:30 p.m. ET.PreviewTwo 1984 Detroit Tigers Get RecognizedJack Morris is best remembered for his 10-inning shutout masterpiece in Game 7 of the 1991 World Series, when he led the Minnesota Twins to a closing victory over the Atlanta Braves. But he was also the ace of the 1984 Detroit Tigers, who started the season 35-5 en route to a Fall Classic victory.The 18-year veteran won 254 games during his career and won four World Series (three in a row from 1991-1993 with the Twins and Toronto Blue Jays).Alan Trammell was the slick-fielding shortstop on that aforementioned 1984 Tigers team, and he also took home four Gold Gloves during his career. Trammell played his entire 20-year career in Detroit, making six All-Star Games (including five in a seven-year span).A three-time Silver Slugger, Trammell was one of the best hitting shortstops of his generation, smacking 185 home runs to go along with a .285 batting average. Hall of Fame Voters Dig the Long BallKnown for his cannon arm, powerful swing and whacking pitches way outside the strike zone, Vladimir Guerrero was one of the game's most entertaining players during his time. In his 16-year career, Guerrero hit 449 home runs, including 27 or more 11 times. He also had a stellar .931 OPS.Guerrero's most impressive season may have been at age 35, when he hit 29 home runs to go along with 115 RBI and a .300 batting average for the Texas Rangers. That campaign helped him make his ninth All-Star Game and his first (and only) World Series, where Texas lost to the San Francisco Giants in five. Although Guerrero ended his playing days without a ring, that certainly isn't a knock on his phenomenal resume.Likewise, Jim Thome is a proficient slugger who came close but never won the big one. Like Guerrero, however, that doesn't take away from his greatness.At 6'4" and 250 pounds, he was one of the most feared hitters in the game.Over the course of his 22-year career Ted Williams Jersey , Thome hit 612 home runs alongside a .956 OPS. His best season was in 2002, when Thome hit 52 home runs, knocked in 118 runners and finished with a staggering 1.122 OPS. The No-DoubterSomehow, 2.8 percent of ballots cast did not have Chipper Jones selected for this year's Hall of Fame class. All the 20-year Atlanta Brave did was hit 468 home runs to go with a .303 batting average. He also finished top 12 in the National League MVP voting nine times.Jones was a key member of the mid-to-late 1990s Braves teams that seemingly won 100-plus games every year. He won the World Series with them in 1995 and led the team to two more pennants in 1996 and 1999.Like Thome and Guerrero, Jones found the fountain of youth near the end of his career: From 2006-2008 (his age-34 to age-36 seasons), he hit 77 home runs, knocked in 263 runners, hit .342 and had a 1.027 OPS.The Superstar CloserOne of the more loaded trades in MLB history occurred in 1993, when Trevor Hoffman and slugger Gary Sheffield were on opposite ends of a deal. Hoffman went to the San Diego Padres, where he accumulated nearly all of his NL-record 601 saves, while Sheffield (509 home runs), won a World Series with the Florida Marlins.Outside of his remarkable save number, Hoffman is best remembered for his role on the 1998 San Diego Padres, an underdog team that upset the 106-win Atlanta Braves in the National League Championship Series.While the Padres got swept by the 114-win New York Yankees in the World Series, Hoffman still had his best year ever, amassing a career-high 53 saves alongside a 1.48 ERA. That was good enough for the first of his two top-two Cy Young finishes. CLEVELAND (AP) — Francisco Lindor connected for a three-run homer with two outs in the ninth inning as the Cleveland Indians again moved 10 games ahead of Minnesota in the AL Central with a 5-2 win over the Twins on Wednesday night.Lindor, who struck out with the winning run at second base in the ninth in a loss on Tuesday, drove the first pitch from Trevor Hildenberger (2-3) over the wall in right to trigger a wild celebration.Jason Kipnis singled with one out in the ninth before Twins right fielder Max Kepler robbed Yan Gomes of extra bases with a leaping catch before crashing into the wall. Brandon Guyer followed with a single to bring up Lindor, who capped a wild ninth inning with his 29th homer.The All-Star shortstop skipped around the bases before being mobbed at home plate by his teammates.Down 2-1, Minnesota tied it in the ninth on Miguel Sano’s leadoff homer against Cody Allen (4-4), who wound up with a blown save and win.DIAMONDBACKS 6, PHILLIES 0PHOENIX — Patrick Corbin struck out nine in a combined four-hitter, David Peralta had four hits and two RBIs, and the Arizona Diamondbacks rolled over the Philadelphia Phillies 6-0 on Wednesday.Corbin (10-4) had the Phillies guessing most of the game, allowing four hits in 7 1/3 innings while reaching a career-high 183 strikeouts this season. The left-hander did not give up a home run for the ninth straight start, the longest stretch by an Arizoba Diamondbacks pitcher since Brandon Webb in 2003.Peralta hit a two-run triple off Vince Velasquez (8-9) in the third inning, sending the Phillies right-hander to his first loss since June 25.Peralta had his fourth four-hit game of the homestand and tied the franchise record with 10 hits in the three-game series. He is 18 for 31 since taking two days off with shoulder tightness last week.Eduardo Escobar had three RBIs for the NL West-leading Diamondbacks.BRAVES 8 http://www.redsoxproshops.com/authentic-dustin-pedroia-jersey , NATIONALS 3WASHINGTON — Ronald Acuna Jr. hit one of Atlanta’s three homers, then took away a long ball from Washington to back Mike Foltynewicz (9-7).Charlie Culberson and Tyler Flowers also went deep for the Braves. Culberson hit a three-run drive off Tommy Milone (1-1) in the second inning, and it was 7-1 by the fourth. Culberson has homered in three straight games.Acuna also made a sensational catch in the fourth inning to rob Matt Adams of a home run. Acuna raced to the center-field wall, leaped and snagged the ball with his outstretched glove before sprawling on the warning track.Bryce Harper hit his 28th home run for the Nationals, who showed their frustration in the sixth inning when rookie Juan Soto and hitting coach Kevin Long were ejected by home plate umpire Greg Gibson.ATHLETICS 3, DODGERS 2OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Newly acquired Mike Fiers pitched 5 1/3 strong innings and the Athletics beat the Dodgers.The A’s broke a 2-2 in the eighth inning when Khris Davis hit a fielder’s choice grounder off Dodgers reliever J.T. Chargois (2-3), scoring Marcus Semien from third.Dodgers third baseman Manny Machado fielded Davis’ bouncer and fired home to catcher Yasmani Grandal, but Grandal never had control of the ball when he swipe-tagged Semien. Grandal was charged with an error on the play.Semien singled leading off the inning. He almost got doubled off first on Matt Chapman’s fly ball to Cody Bellinger in center. His throw was off-line throw back to first. Jed Lowrie followed with a hit that sent Semien to third.Jeurys Familia (3-0) pitched a scoreless eighth for the win and Blake Treinen worked the ninth for his 29th save in 33 chances.METS 8, REDS 0NEW YORK (AP) — Jacob deGrom struck out 10 in six innings, received rare significant run support and earned his first win in nearly two months as New York beat Cincinnati.DeGrom (6-7) ended a seven-start winless streak, allowing four hits in a 100-pitch outing and lowering his major league-leading ERA to 1.77. He won for the first time since June 18 at Colorado.Brandon Nimmo tied a team record with three doubles and drove in three runs to help the Mets win for the 22nd time in their last 66 games. Austin Jackson drove in two runs with a double in the second and a single in the fifth as the Mets built a 5-0 lead. Nimmo hit an RBI double in the fifth and scored on a sacrifice fly by Amed Rosario in the fourth. Nimmo had a two-run double in the eighth.Robert Stephenson (0-1) was the loser.CARDINALS 7, MARLINS 1MIAMI (AP) — Matt Carpenter hit a tiebreaking homer for the second consecutive night, and St. Louis won its fourth series in a row by beating Miami.Carpenter put St. Louis ahead with a home run leading off the sixth inning, his NL-leading 31st. The Cardinals’ Yadier Molina hit his 15th homer in the first and doubled home two runs in the ninth. Marcell Ozuna doubled home a run in the sixth and went 6 for 11 in the series against his former team.John Gant (4-4) pitched six innings and allowed one run, which scored in part because of a defensive lapse. He and three relievers combined to retire 21 batters in a row.Trevor Richards (3-7) allowed three runs in 5 2/3 innings for the last-place Marlins.RANGERS 11, MARINERS 7ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Joey Gallo homered twice and drove in four runs, Yovani Gallardo won his fourth straight start and Texas held off Seattle.Gallardo (7-1) leads the majors with seven wins since June 23. He allowed three hits, two runs and three walks while striking out two in six innings.Gallo has hit 10 of his 31 homers in his past 19 games. He went 3 for 5 to raise his batting average above .200 for the first time since June 16.Seattle starter Marco Gonzales (12-7) gave up career highs of 12 hits and seven runs in five innings.Gallo’s homers against Gonzales gave him 12 against left-handers this season, the most by a Texas left-handed batter since Rafael Palmeiro hit 15 in 2003.Mike Zunino hit two homers for the Mariners.BREWERS 8, PADRES 4MILWAUKEE (AP) — Jesus Aguilar, Travis Shaw and Eric Thames hit consecutive first-inning homers to spoil the debut of San Diego’s Brett Kennedy.Kennedy (0-1), who was 10-0 in 16 starts at Triple-A El Paso before being called up Monday, was tagged for six runs on 11 hits in four innings.Orlando Arcia and Christian Yelich also homered for Milwaukee, while Hunter Renfroe had a two-run shot for San Diego.Jhoulys Chacin (11-4) allowed three runs on six hits in six innings to win for the fifth time in six decisions.RED SOX 10, BLUE JAYS 5TORONTO (AP) — Rafael Devers returned from the disabled list and hit a two-run home run Nomar Garciaparra Jersey , Brian Johnson pitched a season-high seven innings to win his second straight start and Boston extended its winning streak to six games.J.D. Martinez had three hits and Xander Bogaerts had three RBIs for the AL East-leading Red Sox.Johnson (3-3) allowed five runs and six hits to earn his first career win over the Blue Jays. He walked two and struck out six.Boston chased Blue Jays starter Mike Hauschild (1-1) with a four-run third inning.YANKEES 7, WHITE SOX 3CHICAGO (AP) — Luis Severino pitched seven effective innings in his first win in a month, Giancarlo Stanton hit his first grand slam in four years and New York finished a sweep of Chicago.Aaron Hicks also homered as wild card-leading New York closed out a 3-4 trip with its third consecutive win. Gleyber Torres reached three times on a single and two walks.Severino (15-5) retired 11 in a row after the White Sox used three straight hits to open a 2-0 lead in the first.White Sox right-hander Lucas Giolito (7-9) was tagged for seven runs and six hits in five innings in his first loss in a month.PIRATES 4, ROCKIES 3DENVER (AP) — Adam Frazier had three hits and made a run-saving play in the field in Pittsburgh’s victory over Colorado.Frazier had two doubles and a single, but made what might have been his biggest contribution in the field. With runners on the corners and two outs in the eighth inning, pinch-hitter Chris Iannetta hit a sharp grounder to the hole at second. Frazier made a diving stop and threw out Iannetta to end the inning and preserve the one-run lead.Chris Archer (4-5) allowed two runs and five hits in five innings in his second start since being acquired from Tampa Bay. Jan Vazquez got four out for his 26th save.German Marquez (9-9) tied a career high with 10 strikeouts, and David Dahl homered for the Rockies.ANGELS 6, TIGERS 0ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Justin Upton and Albert Pujols hit back-to-back homers in the fifth inning, and Los Angeles completed a three-game sweep of Detroit.Kole Calhoun hit a leadoff homer and rookie Jaime Barria (7-7) pitched five-hit ball into the sixth. Los Angeles was in a 1-6 skid before getting back to .500 in the series with the struggling Tigers.Upton connected on a full-count changeup from Blaine Hardy (4-4) for a two-run homer shortly before Pujols added his 632nd career homer.Mike Trout missed his seventh consecutive game with a sore right wrist, but the Angels are hopeful the two-time AL MVP can return against Oakland this weekend.ROYALS 9, CUBS 0KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Heath Fillmyer allowed three singles over seven innings for his first major league win, Adalberto Mondesi and Drew Butera each drove in three, and Kansas City beat Chicago.Anthony Rizzo drilled Fillmyer (1-1) with a line drive on the left foot on his third pitch, but Fillmyer stuck around and didn’t allow another hit until David Bote and Tommy La Stella singled with one out in the seventh inning.Jose Quintana (10-8) dropped to 3-10 in 25 starts against the Royals.

Friday to trade third baseman Josh Donaldson to the Cleveland Indians Austin Meadows Jersey , according to Yahoo Sports' Jeff Passan.Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports reported Toronto will send $2.7 million to Cleveland.Donaldson enjoyed a late surge during the 2017 season after a sluggish start. The three-time All-Star posted a .270/.385/.559 triple-slash line with 33 home runs in 113 games. He also missed six weeks of action with a strained right calf.He's tallied five homers in 36 games this season, once again forced to the disabled list for an extended stretch鈥攖his time because of right shoulder inflammation.The 32-year-old possesses a strong track record, though.He earned the 2015 American League MVP Award after finishing the campaign with a .939 OPS to go along with 41 homers, 123 RBI and 122 runs scored. He's also hit at least 24 long balls in five straight seasons.With Donaldson set to hit free agency after the 2018 season, he said in January that he hoped to remain in Toronto."As we talked about at the end of the season last year, I've definitely voiced my opinion that I would like to stay here," Donaldson told reporters. "That hasn't changed."His continued injury issues paired with the Jays' inability to keep pace in the AL East led the front office to trade him Colin Moran Jersey , though.Now Donaldson will shift his focus to getting back on track with the Indians. The fact he's two seasons removed from a campaign in which he posted a career-best .404 on-base percentage and smacked 37 homers bodes well for a return to form.While his long-term future remains uncertain because he's headed for the open market, look for him to provide some reinforcements to an Indians team that's well on its way to a third straight AL Central title. The Houston Astros traded for ace relief pitcher Roberto Osuna when he was in the middle of a 75-game suspension related to a domestic assault charge. There was bound to come a moment when that decision looked as bad on the field as it did in the department of basic decency.This moment arrived Tuesday, October 16. Specifically, in the eighth inning of Houston's 8-2 loss to the Boston Red Sox in Game 3 of the American League Championship Series.It was a one-run game when Osuna entered in the top of the eighth at Minute Maid Park. He initially looked like the same pitcher who was an All-Star with the Toronto Blue Jays and put up a 1.99 ERA in 23 regular-season appearances with the Astros. Two of the first three batters he faced made outs.But then Osuna hit Brock Holt with a pitch to load the bases. Then he hit Mitch Moreland. Like that, Houston's deficit was doubled.After that came Jackie Bradley Jr. with the gamebreaker off Osuna: a grand slam into the right field seats that pushed the Red Sox's lead to six runs and, ultimately, clinched a 2-1 series lead.Boston Red Sox RedSoxThe Grand Slam Train continues in the #postseason! 馃殏#DoDamage nwSAOJ8PErAll told David Freese Jersey , Osuna was charged with five runs on three hits in two-thirds of an inning. It is the worst performance of his four-year major league career.In the words of Astros manager A.J. Hinch, per MLB.com's Mark Feinsand: "It's a 3-2 ballgame until all hell broke loose there."It's tempting to view Osuna's collapse as karma for what got him suspended by Major League Baseball in the first place. But that's equal parts tricky and foolish.The details of what led to his May arrest and subsequent suspension have been kept under wraps, and revelations aren't coming any time soon. The charge against the 23-year-old was dropped when he agreed to a peace bond. The accuser鈥攁 woman who has a young child with him鈥攈ad declined to travel from Mexico to Toronto to testify.Whatever Osuna may have done to deserve his punishment, karma isn't going for him when he's on the mound anyway. Scales such as these can't be balanced by a couple of bad pitches in a silly game for kids.For the Astros, on the other hand, what happened in the eighth inning Tuesday is absolutely karmic retribution.Bob Levey/Getty ImagesThough the Astros didn't break any rules when they traded for Osuna ahead of the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline, the very act of doing so made them guilty of extreme cynicism.The Astros didn't look at Osuna and see a toxic asset. They looked and saw a marked-down item. All they needed to give up to get him was a few spare parts (fallen closer Ken Giles and fellow right-handers David Paulino and Hector Perez) and perhaps a little dignity.The Astros may have underestimated how much dignity the deal would cost them http://www.padresfanproshop.com/authentic-brad-hand-jersey , however.The backlash was immediate and fierce. General manager Jeff Luhnow didn't help matters by insulting everyone's intelligence in a statement meant to reassure everyone that Osuna would "fully comply with our zero tolerance policy related to abuse of any kind." When you claim zero tolerance for abusers while bringing in a guy accused of abuse, then you don't actually have a zero tolerance policy.As far as the Astros were clearly concerned, however, what mattered was the long game. Unlike the joint drug agreement, MLB's domestic violence policy doesn't include postseason bans for suspended players. The more Osuna did to help deliver their second straight World Series championship, the more the controversy of his acquisition figured to blow over.Well, go figure that his biggest game as an Astro to date resulted in a critical ALCS loss. As MLB.com's Brian McTaggart noted Manuel Margot Jersey , history is now firmly on the Red Sox's side after Osuna's meltdown:Brian McTaggart brianmctaggartRed Sox beat the Astros, 8-2, to take a 2-1 series lead. In the history of best-of-seven series with the 2-3-2 format, teams that win Game 3 on the road to grab a 2-1 advantage have gone on to take the series 27 of 36 times (75 percent).After opening with a 7-2 thud at Fenway Park in Game 1, the Red Sox have certainly looked more like a 108-game winner in claiming Games 2 and 3.Their hitters have worked tough at-bats against Gerrit Cole, Dallas Keuchel and an array of Houston relievers. Chris Sale, David Price and Nathan Eovaldi bent but didn't break at the start of games. And after a rough showing in Game 1 http://www.padresfanproshop.com/authentic-brad-hand-jersey , Boston's bullpen has allowed one run on three hits in 7.1 innings over the last two.Of course, it would be foolish to write the Astros off entirely. They were 103-game winners in their own right in the regular season, and one can still look at them and see a team that matches up well with Boston. The Astros can come back on the Red Sox by outpitching, outhitting or outfielding them. Osuna putting Game 3 behind him and getting back to his dominant ways could indeed be part of the equation.For now, though, they're reeling from an ugly loss that's the fault of a player whose very presence on the team is outrageous to many. Darn it if something about that doesn't feel right.Stats courtesy of Baseball Reference.

BOSTON (AP) — Cleveland Indians outfielder Leonys Martin will sit out the rest of the season because of a bacterial infection.Manager Terry Francona revealed the news Wednesday before Cleveland’s game against the Boston Red Sox.The 30-year-old Cuban player became ill following a game Aug. 8. Doctors determined he had the life-threatening bacterial infection that entered his bloodstream and created toxins that damaged his internal organs http://www.nationalsfanproshop.com/authentic-matt-adams-jersey , compromising their function.“The news is really good, he is doing fantastic, but he not going to play baseball this year,” Francona said, adding that the players were updated about his health during a brief meeting. “Overall, he has done so well. We’re so thrilled that he’s OK.”Martin was released from the hospital Sunday.The club said he was rechecked by doctors Wednesday in Cleveland.“All testing and imaging shows that Leonys’ body continues to recover and while his prognosis remains positive for a full recovery, doctors feel that Leonys’ heart and other organs will require an additional one to two months to allow for this to happen,” they said in the update.Also Wednesday, the club activated slugger Edwin Encarnacion from the 10-day disabled list. He had been sidelined since Aug. 12 with a right wrist contusion. Encarnacion homered in his first at-bat against left-hander Brian Johnson.He was expected to return Thursday Wilmer Difo Jersey , but they placed outfielder Rajai Davis on the 10-day DL with a non-baseball-related, not-life-threatening medical condition. The move is retroactive to Monday.Davis is scheduled to have outpatient surgery Monday and is expected to rejoin the club when rosters are expanded on Sept. 1.Martin was acquired from Detroit on July 31 to added depth to the outfield and appeared in six games.Francona said he hoped to come back, but doctors decided it was best for him to rest.“I think he wanted to play, but I think the doctors thought with what happened, he needs some time to let his body heal and we fully support that,” Francona said. “Even though we miss him a lot, it’s the right thing to do.”Francona said Martin’s expected to have some more doctor appointments in Cleveland next week.The club has gotten a boost by the play of rookie Greg Allen in center field in the first two games of a scheduled four-game series between two of the AL’s division leaders at Fenway Park.Allen hit a tiebreaking homer in the seventh inning of Monday’s win and had a nice running catch before diving to the ground. In Tuesday’s victory, he made a pair of stellar catches; the second thwarted Boston’s rally.“It’s been fun to watch him develop in the middle of pennant race,” Francona said. HOUSTON (AP) — Touted prospect Forrest Whitley will start the season in the minors but has certainly showed why he could factor into the Houston Astros‘ plans at some point.Whitley allowed three runs over three innings in his final exhibition start as Houston beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 12-9 on Monday night. The outing capped a solid spring for the young right-hander.Whitley said he was able to learn from Astros veterans in camp Brian Goodwin Jersey , with preparation being the biggest thing.“I thought this spring was very beneficial, and it’s going to help me during the season,” he explained. “Sitting in (Justin) Verlander and (Gerrit) Cole’s back pockets as much as I possibly could, learning from them.”Whitley, rated the top pitching prospect in baseball by MLB.com, allowed all three runs in a 31-pitch first inning that was capped by Francisco Cervelli’s two-run homer. But he settled down after that, retiring the side in order in the second and permitting two singles in the third.The 21-year-old finished with two strikeouts and gave up six hits. He struck out 17 in 15 innings this spring.“This outing was pretty weird,” Whitley said. “I haven’t had one of these in a while. I had everything except my fastball. It’s kind of hard to pitch without the fastball. I had a hard time locating that pitch. Pitching off that was a real struggle, but I found a way to bounce back a little bit. That was encouraging.”Whitley http://www.nationalsfanproshop.com/authentic-matt-adams-jersey , a 2016 first-round draft pick, will start the season at Triple-A Round Rock.“I’m very excited,” he said. “Going to the affiliate here shortly and try to pitch as well as I can to get back up here.”Houston manager AJ Hinch said the spring was a good learning time for Whitley, and he’s got a bright future.“It’s going to take an adjustment or two and attention to a couple details to be ready to pitch in the big leagues,” Hinch said. “When we call him up at some point, we are going to need him to be good.”CHISENHALL HITPirates outfielder Lonnie Chisenhall exited after being hit in the right hand by Framber Valdez’s pitch in the sixth.BIG INNINGSPittsburgh’s three-run first started with Adam Frazier scoring on Starling Marte’s double before Cervelli’s home run. The Pirates added a five-run sixth on RBI singles by Melky Cabrera and Corey Dickerson sandwiched around a two-run double by Frazier and Marte’s sacrifice fly.Houston scored seven in the third. George Springer and Alex Bregman had RBI groundouts before Michael Brantley’s two-run single and Tyler White’s three-run homer. Nick Tanielu added a three-run homer in the sixth. Garrett Stubbs and Myles Straw hit consecutive solo home runs in the seventh.JAMES’ OUTINGHouston right-hander Josh James gave up one run and three hits in the eighth. James, slowed early by a strained right quadriceps, allowed only that one run in four spring outings.UP NEXTPirates: RHP Brandon Maurer starts the exhibition finale Tuesday against the Astros.Astros: RHP J.B. Bukauskas starts Tuesday.

PEORIA Reggie Sanders Jersey , Ariz. (AP) — Felix Hernandez doesn’t think he could have changed the mind of Seattle Mariners manager Scott Servais about opening day, even by pitching well this spring.With his ERA approaching 16, it’s a moot point.King Felix is royally agitated anyway.Hernandez was tagged for seven runs in three-plus innings against the Cleveland Indians on Sunday, raising his spring ERA to 15.95 a day after Servais announced that Marco Gonzales would start Seattle’s season opener against Oakland in Tokyo on March 20.Seattle’s decision ends Hernandez’s run of 10 consecutive opening day starts.Hernandez spoke publicly after the game for the first time since Servais’ announcement. Asked if he was upset, Hernandez said simply, “Yeah,” but declined to elaborate on his emotions.“I knew it was going to happen,” he added.Hernandez was also asked if he could have convinced Servais to give him the opening day nod with a better spring camp.“No,” he said while shaking his head.The 32-year-old has been losing fastball velocity since his mid-20s and been mostly hobbled and ineffective since turning 30.The 2010 AL Cy Young Award winner had a career-worst 5.55 ERA in 29 games last season and was briefly removed from the rotation for the first time in the majors. This is his final season of a $175 million, seven-year contract.The Mariners have asked Hernandez to use his curveball more this spring, especially early in counts, because data suggests it’s the right-hander’s most effective pitch. Hernandez used the breaking ball often during a 1-2-3 first inning but got away from it as the game wore on.“He needs to continue to work that in,” Servais said. “It’s one of his best pitches. Didn’t go to it today.”AROUND THE GRAPEFRUIT AND CACTUS LEAGUESINDIANS 16, MARINERS (SS) 2Hanley Ramirez hit a two-run double and Ryan Flaherty homered for Cleveland.

BALTIMORE (AP) — A year ago, the Baltimore Orioles had Manny Machado and expectations of reaching the playoffs for the fourth time in seven seasons under manager Buck Showalter.Machado and Showalter are gone, as is all realistic hope of playing baseball this October.After staggering through their worst season since coming to Baltimore in 1954, the Orioles will launch a major rebuild in 2019 under rookie manager Brandon Hyde and first-year general manager Mike Elias.Machado was one of many Baltimore stars traded in the midst of a 47-115 disaster that cost Showalter and executive vice president Dan Duquette their jobs. Hyde, previously the bench coach of the Chicago Cubs, and Elias, the former assistant general manager of the Houston Astros, are overseeing an overhaul they hope will result in the same worst-to-first transformation they experienced with their last employers.“The fact that we share some career background in terms of player development, and going through a rebuilding process with the Cubs and the Astros, we’re really on the same page in a lot of ways,” Elias said of his relationship with Hyde. “He views the game the same way that I do.”At this point, the best the Orioles can expect is to be competitive and provide reason to believe that better days lie ahead.“If you like baseball, this is an interesting process,” Elias said. “You get to see players grow and you get to follow them in the minor leagues all the way up in their careers. I can tell you from firsthand experience, it’s very rewarding, and it’s going to be very special.”Baltimore launches a new era March 28 in the season opener against the AL East-rival New York Yankees.Some things to know about the 2019 Orioles:START ME UPThe starting rotation features five right-handers and the same three pitchers at the top, all of whom must improve upon dismal performances a year ago.Alex Cobb, who will start on opening day at Yankee Stadium Dave Concepcion Jersey , went 5-15 with a 4.90 ERA in the first season of a four-year, $57 million contract. Andrew Cashner was 4-15 with a 5.29 ERA in his debut season in Baltimore, and right-hander Dylan Bundy, the Orioles’ first-round pick in 2011, finished 8-16 with a 5.45 ERA.Mike Wright, who owns a career record of 10-11, appears likely to be the fourth starter followed by David Hess, who went 3-10 in his rookie season.HYDE’S WAYHyde made a positive impression on the players during a spring training in which he stressed fundamentals and teamwork.“It’s definitely a different atmosphere,” reliever Richard Bleier said. “Obviously, it’s a whole new staff and it’s a newer, younger team. It’s a good mix. I feel like we’re in this together, just trying to figure out how this process is going to work.”OLD GUYSNestled in the middle of a youthful lineup are 33-year-olds Mark Trumbo and Chris Davis. The Orioles would happily trade either of them, but haven’t had any takers.Coming off an injury-riddled season in which he played only 90 games, Trumbo won’t see much action in the field. Davis hit .168 in 2018, the third season of a seven-year, $161 million deal the Orioles wish they could take back.YOUNG GUYSMachado’s replacement at shortstop will likely be Richie Martin, a Rule 5 pick from Oakland who’s never played in a big league game.In addition, Rule 5 selection Drew Jackson is expected to make the team as a utility player.BULLPEN WOESWhen they were good, the Orioles could count on closer Zach Britton to seal a victory. Britton was traded to the Yankees last July, and team is still looking for an adequate replacement.Mychal Givens went 0-9 and blew nine of 13 save opportunities in 2018. Bleier was solid until back surgery ended his season in June, and it might take some time for him to regain his effectiveness.Miguel Castro showed his inconsistency while going 2-7, and Paul Fry converted only half his four save opportunities.

DETROIT (AP) — On the day his No. 3 was retired by the Detroit Tigers Paul Konerko Jersey , Hall of Famer Alan Trammell did some campaigning for his longtime keystone partner.Now that Trammell is in the Hall and has been honored by the Tigers, does Lou Whitaker have a chance for any of these accolades as well?“The love that Lou has not received, it bothers me,” Trammell said after Sunday’s pregame ceremony. “I’m shocked. Hopefully, maybe this will help get a little momentum. I meant what I said, that I hope that he’s in the Hall of Fame soon, and that he also has his number retired here at Comerica Park.”Trammell was inducted into the Hall late last month, and now his name and number are on the brick wall beyond one of the bullpens at Comerica. Whitaker was on hand for the ceremony, which delayed the start of Detroit’s 7-2 loss to the Chicago White Sox on Sunday by about a half-hour.Trammell was with the Tigers from 1977-96, establishing himself as one of the game’s top shortstops. Whitaker was right alongside him at second base, playing for Detroit from 1977-95.“We just had fun http://www.whitesoxfanproshop.com/authentic-paul-konerko-jersey ,” Whitaker said. “That would be the legacy there. Two young kids having fun, playing the game they love, for 19 years.”Whitaker was a career .276 hitter with 244 home runs. Trammell hit .285 with 185 homers. According to Baseball-Reference.com, Whitaker had 75.1 wins above replacement for his career, more than Hall of Fame second basemen Ryne Sandberg (68) and Roberto Alomar (67.1).Trammell and Whitaker were both with the Tigers in 1984, when they won the franchise’s most recent World Series title. Trammell was inducted to the Hall of Fame this year along with another member of that team, pitcher Jack Morris — and Morris also has his number retired on the wall next to Trammell’s.“I can go out there and paint my name out there. Maybe that’s what I’ll do tonight,” Whitaker joked. “If you see paint on the wall tonight beside Trammell, then come look for Lou.”There are also a handful of statues at the ballpark above the names and numbers beyond left-center field, and that topic came up when Trammell spoke after the ceremony.“If there was a statue, don’t you think it would be appropriate Nellie Fox Jersey , that it would be both of us? I mean, I do,” Trammell said. “Now whether or not it happens — nobody’s spoken to me, and I’m not trying to push the issue, you’re asking me a question — if it ever happened, to me that would be the way to do it.” WASHINGTON (AP) — On a day that Jacob deGrom struck out 10 in six scoreless innings, and Max Scherzer fanned 12, it was New York Mets newcomer Robinson Cano who decided the outcome with a homer, an RBI single and head’s-up throw to the plate.Interrupting a pair of performances befitting the owners of the past three NL Cy Young Awards, Cano went deep against Scherzer in his debut at-bat for the Mets and saved a run with an unusual double play, and New York edged the Bryce Harper-less Washington Nationals 2-0 in the opener for both teams Thursday.While the Nationals’ offense clearly missed its former slugger — Harper was up I-95 Harold Baines Jersey , playing Game 1 of his $330 million contract for the Philadelphia Phillies — Cano showed why the Mets wanted to get him from the Seattle Mariners in a December deal that also landed closer Edwin Diaz, who got the save Thursday.Cano, an eight-time All-Star, drove a changeup to left-center on Scherzer’s 13th pitch of the season. The shot quieted a sellout crowd of 42,263 on a sunny afternoon with the temperature at 56 degrees for the start.“Missed by a little bit too much over the middle,” lamented Scherzer, a three-time Cy Young Award recipient who was runner-up to deGrom last season. “You do that in this league, you get burned.”Cano became the first Mets player to go deep in his initial at-bat with the club since Mike Jacobs in 2005, and the 10th overall.It was his play at second base that was the talk of both clubhouses.The Nationals had runners at the corners in the third, but deGrom struck out Trea Turner, then got Anthony Rendon to hit a grounder to third. The runner there Chris Sale Jersey , 21-year-old rookie Victor Robles, hesitated before heading home. Cano took the throw from third for the forceout a second, then zipped the ball to the plate. Robles wound up tagged out for a 5-4-2-5 double play.“He’s probably the only guy in baseball that makes that play, and it was a no-look pass to home, to boot,” Mets manager Mickey Callaway said. “The runner at third probably did the wrong thing — and Cano made him pay.”Robles acknowledged as much.“To be honest, I got a little confused,” Robles said through a translator. “In the middle of the moment, I realized I had made the mistake, so I tried to kind of make up for it.”He is Washington’s man in center field, where Harper spent a lot of time a year ago Rusney Castillo Jersey , and that gaffe on the bases stood out more than Robles’ double or his diving catch. With Harper no longer in the heart of the lineup, 2018 NL Rookie of the Year runner-up Juan Soto hit cleanup, and he went 0 for 3.A day after signing a $137.5 million contract, deGrom (1-0) set a major league mark with his 30th consecutive start allowing three runs or fewer. Scherzer (0-1) was charged with both of the Mets’ runs in 7 2/3 innings.They are only the second pair of starters in an opening day game to get double-figure strikeouts. The others: Dave McNally of the Orioles and Sam McDowell of the Indians in 1970.“You can all see what happens,” Washington’s Adam Eaton said, “when two Cy Young winners go head-to-head.”WAY TO GO, ROOKMets 1B Pete Alonso started in his major league debut and went 1 for 4 with a single off RHP Justin Miller in the eighth. “It was awesome. It felt like a big — not a monkey, but a gorilla hopped off my back,” Alonso said.NUMBERSJake Arrieta (2015-16) held the old multiple-season mark of 29 consecutive starts giving up three or fewer runs. … Turner stole three bases. … This was Scherzer’s 83rd career game with at least 10 Ks.UP NEXTMets: RHP Noah Syndergaard will pitch Game 2 on Saturday. He is 0-3 with a 5.79 ERA in five starts at Washington.Nationals: RHP Stephen Strasburg is 8-5 with a 2.83 ERA in 17 starts against the Mets, his fewest against a division opponent.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Bruce Bochy has long been a manager who makes it all about his players Sparky Anderson Jersey , the men he writes into the lineup day after day, game after game, month after month.That’s a big reason San Francisco’s veteran, likely Hall of Fame skipper, decided in February to make it public he will retire at the end of this season. He grew tired of the constant questions, the regular speculation about his future. He didn’t want to be a distraction.Now, the Giants will begin a new season that is Bochy’s last — and everyone involved is determined to make it memorable despite the daunting task of returning to winning in the loaded NL West.“It’s a gut feeling that it’s time,” Bochy said early in spring training. “It’s been an unbelievable ride. There’s so much that I have to be grateful for, with the players, the city, the fans, my ride here. It’s time.”In Bochy’s first season with the Giants in 2007, he managed Barry Bonds when the slugger broke Hank Aaron’s home run record. Bochy then guided the Giants to World Series championships in 2010, ’12 and ’14 but San Francisco has largely struggled since that remarkable run. The club reached the 2016 NL division series and lost to the Cubs in four games.“We have this year to take care of first. Hopefully we will make it a memorable one for him,” shortstop Brandon Crawford said. “But it will definitely be different without him.”Some of San Francisco’s biggest stars missed significant time in 2018 with injuries yet again: ace lefty Madison Bumgarner, right-handers Johnny Cueto and Jeff Samardzija, catcher Buster Posey Jack Morris Jersey , first baseman Brandon Belt, second baseman Joe Panik, third baseman Pablo Sandoval.The Giants wound up 73-89, including a majors-worst 5-21 in September, yet bettered their last-place 2017 finish of 64-98.“It’s so rare that you see teams just win forever,” Bumgarner said. “There’s ups and downs in this game all the time and that doesn’t mean we’re OK with them but at the same time you have to understand that side and hopefully we can speed up the process tremendously to get back to the top and winning side as opposed to the bottom, where we’ve been the last few years. I don’t mean the top or bottom, I just mean the ups and downs.”That’s Farhan Zaidi’s plan, too.The club’s new president of baseball operations hopes to take significant steps in 2019 toward getting back into the mix of contention. He is coming from the rival Dodgers, winners of the last six NL West titles.Here are some things to watch for with the Giants, who open the season March 28 at San Diego against Manny Machado and the Padres:FOCUSED MADBUM: Bumgarner insists he is never one to live in the past. So, the frustrations of his past two injury-shortened seasons are hardly on his mind.But the 2014 World Series MVP sure would like to return to the 200-inning pitcher he has been when healthy.Last year, he knows, was purely bad luck. Bumgarner broke the pinkie on his pitching hand when he was hit by a line drive from Kansas City’s Whit Merrifield in his final 2018 spring training start, undergoing surgery to insert pins into the finger.He returned in June and wound up 6-7 with a 3.26 ERA in 21 starts and 129 2/3 innings.In 2017, he missed nearly three months after an April dirt bike accident during an off day in Colorado.HEALTHY POSEY: The Giants want to protect Posey, who underwent season-ending right hip surgery in late August. Posey can’t wait to be a regular in the lineup again.“Hopefully the plan that is put forth by the training staff will have you right where you need to be Michael Fulmer Jersey ,” he said.He hit .284 with five home runs and 41 RBIs in 2018 while limited to 105 games before the operation on his troublesome hip, which needed repair for a torn labrum as well as removal of an impingement.San Francisco signed Stephen Vogt and Rene Rivera to minor league deals.OUTFIELD QUESTIONS: Zaidi wanted to make an offseason splash in the outfield. The Giants were in on new Phillies star Bryce Harper, making him a $310 million, 12-year offer.San Francisco signed Cameron Maybin — who was arrested on suspicion of DUI during spring training — and Gerardo Parra to minor league contracts.PROSPECT WATCH: Catcher Joey Bart has already made quite an impression in his first big league spring training.The second overall pick in last year’s draft, he got to catch Bumgarner’s first spring bullpen session.With Bart initially expected to play mostly at Class-A San Jose, Giants fans will have an easy time keeping track of the top prospect with him right in the Bay Area.BOCHY’S PATH: Bochy — an almost certain Hall of Fame selection — plans to stay in baseball once he is through managing, yet what that job will be is unclear. Shohei Ohtani will try to maintain his torrid pace as of late when the Los Angeles Angels play the Chicago White Sox in the second installment of a three-game series Saturday evening at Guaranteed Rate Field.Ohtani, a two-way star who slammed his 19th homer in Friday’s 5-3 win, has hit three long balls since receiving word that he needs Tommy John surgery and is unlikely to pitch in 2019. He is riding a five-game hit streak The Japanese star plans to continue hitting while deciding his next move, and his elbow injury does not impact his swing.Article continues below ...“Nothing is set right now,” Ohtani told reporters on Friday through his interpreter. “I have a few options out there. I am trying to look into every single option. I will make a decision sometime toward the end of the season.“I feel like I’m progressing as a hitter right now, so I’m trying to gain as many experiences as I can while the games count.”Los Angeles (69-72) still has a chance to finish above .500 for the first time in three seasons. The Angels have won six of their last 10 games and are 5-3 on their current road trip, which has included stops in Houston, Texas and Chicago.When the Angels hit two home runs or more in a game, as they did in the series opener, they boast an impressive record of 42-13.Chicago (56-85) is playing .500 baseball since the All-Star break and has high hopes for continued improvement next year. However, the team learned Friday that it likely will be without prized pitcher Michael Kopech for the rest of this season and all of next season because of a torn elbow ligament that requires Tommy John surgery.White Sox right-hander James Shields (6-15 Leonys Martin Jersey , 4.39 ERA) will start on Saturday and try to refocus his teammates after the tough news. Shields is coming off a strong outing in which he pitched six scoreless innings against the Boston Red Sox to earn a victory on Sunday.In 16 career starts against the Angels, Shields is 7-5 with a 3.48 ERA. He has 22 walks and 100 strikeouts in 108 2/3 innings. In his only start against the Angels this season, Shields gave up six runs, including three homers, in four innings and took a loss.Los Angeles will counter with right-hander Matt Shoemaker (1-0, 2.53 ERA), who will make his third start of the season. Shoemaker missed most of the season with a right forearm strain but tossed five scoreless innings his last time out Monday against the Texas Rangers.In five career starts against the White Sox, Shoemaker is 2-2 with a 4.18 ERA. He has been prone to big mistakes, allowing seven home runs in 32 1/3 innings.White Sox outfielder Avisail Garcia enters the game hot after homering and reaching base four times in the series opener. However, Garcia is battling a balky knee and might not play in back-to-back contests.“We’re going to spell him, do everything we have to do to keep him off his legs as much as possible,” White Sox manager Rick Renteria said. “But he wants to play. We’re going to have to be very mindful of how he’s doing and give him an opportunity to kind of recover a little bit. I’ll talk to him tonight, talk to him (before Saturday’s game) to see how he’s feeling.”

BRISBANE Jackie Bradley Jr Jersey , Australia (AP) — Netherlands international pitcher Loek van Mil is in a Canberra hospital with serious head injuries while hiking over the weekend on the outskirts of the Australian capital.The Courier-Mail newspaper on Tuesday quoted Brisbane Bandits chief executive Mark Ready as saying Van Mil was in a critical but stable condition.He was found by a hiker after hitting his head on rocks and sustaining multiple fractures and bleeding on the brain.“He lay unconscious for 24 hours in bushland until he was found by a hiker,” Ready was quoted as saying. “But he has gone from gravely injured to critical but stable. He’s talking and managed a smile and a joke today.”The 34-year-old Van Mil, a 7-foot-1 (2.16-meter) closer, was credited with the save for the Bandits against the Canberra Cavalry in his last game on Thursday. He was in Canberra for a four-game series in the Australian Baseball League and was not with the team when he was injured.He has had minor league contracts with Major League Baseball teams, and joined the Bandits this season after playing for Adelaide in the previous three ABL seasons. Not surprisingly, Mike Trout (-140) leads the American League's MVP odds at the Westgate Superbook in Las Vegas.Mookie Betts and J.D. Martinez are close behind at +275, but the list drops off rather quickly after just a handful of players.The National League race is much more open, with Nolan Arenado Roger Clemens Jersey , Freddie Freeman and Paul Goldschmidt all between +250 and +400.The first “half” is over, and there are some strong MVP candidates in both leagues thus far. I put half in quotes because some teams have already played more than 60% of their games.Lo Duca: Sizing Up Two MLB Divisional Races at the All-Star BreakRead nowWe’ve been diving into some team futures odds, but I’d be remiss if I didn’t bring up some individual accolades.The Westgate Las Vegas Superbook has technically had MVP odds posted the entire season, but I’ll be comparing the current odds to the opening odds from way back in March. I can remember writing about those odds like it was yesterday … life moves fast, as a guy once said in a movie.American LeagueThe machine that is Mike Trout has improved on his odds since the beginning of the season, but has fallen in recent weeks. I did see him listed at a whopping -700 at some point around when Red Sox outfielder Mookie Betts was on the disabled list in early June.Trout is tied with Betts and Jose Ramirez with 6.5 fWAR and leads the league in bWAR at 6.8. He’s having a career year at the plate and up until the end of June, had a wRC+ of 198 鈥?that means he was almost twice as good at producing runs as the average player. In July, however Andrew Benintendi Jersey , Trout is at a mere 104?a tick better than league average. He can afford some lulls here or there, but will need to return to form relatively soon to remain the favorite.Speaking of Betts, he and teammate J.D. Martinez have both put up monster seasons and find themselves with the same odds at the break. I am a proud holder of a Betts ticket from before the season so I’ll be rooting hard for him down the stretch. Something that may help or hurt his case is his time missed due to injury.Fading Elite MLB Teams After the All-Star Break is a Sharp PlayRead nowBetts has played 19 games fewer than Trout, and you’d have to imagine he’d be ahead of him in WAR if had he not been hurt. Health is a valuable trait, so perhaps the voters won’t give him a benefit of the doubt.Indians infielder Jose Ramirez is somewhat quietly putting up an insane season of his own and is tied for the MLB lead in homers with Martinez. He’s been a terrific all-around player and is not getting the respect from the oddsmakers that he deserves at just +600.If you are a holder of a Betts, Martinez or a Ramirez ticket with a big payout on the line, this may be the time to hedge and put a bit on Trout. The American League does not have many situations that can play out in which one of those four (or Indians shortstop Francisco Lindor) does not win.If you’re looking for value plays at this point, the one person I would recommend is Aaron Judge Luis Tiant Jersey , who currently has MLB’s fifth-best fWAR in and has contributed in the field and on the basepaths, as well. If the Yankees can come back and win the division with the help of another power surge from Judge, he may follow his runner-up 2017 campaign with a first-place 2018.National LeagueThe National League is far more wide open and has more than double the amount of players with 100-1 odds or shorter. Right now, Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado holds the slight edge over Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman both on the odds list and fWAR list (4.1 to 3.9.) Since the entire National League has tight division races to be decided in the second half, I feel that each of these guys’ chances are tied to how their teams do. Trout and Giancarlo Stanton have proved in recent years that MVPs don’t need to come from playoff (or winning) teams, but considering none of these guys is running away in the race with ridiculous statistical seasons, a division title should help any of these players’ chances.The preseason favorite, Nats outfielder Bryce Harper http://www.redsoxproshops.com/authentic-dustin-pedroia-jersey , still has the ninth-best odds, but has the 93rd-best fWAR out of 164 qualified hitters in the bigs. Not exactly something to add to the resume when he’s asking for that $500 million contract this winter.At 750-1, the Rays Are An Intriguing and Fun World Series FutureRead nowUnlike the AL, the NL has a handful of surprises near the top of the list. Neither Milwaukee’s Jesus Aguilar nor Chicago’s Javy Baez was listed before the season, but Aguilar has been the best hitter in the NL with a 159 wRC+ while Baez’s 3.4 fWAR is fifth-best among NL positional players.Reds third baseman Eugenio Suarez and Braves second baseman Ozzie Albies聽鈥?also top 10 in NL fWAR 鈥?round out the eight guys with 20-1 or shorter odds.

  • World Bosses will spawn following the time table below and once a world boss is spawned, PvP will be disabled for 15 minutes. Before, adventurers had to wait a long time for randomly spawning bosses. The fixed time schedule and PvP prevention are set to alleviate such problems and also rid of unnecessary time wasted and harm done amongst players combating each other during a boss spawn. All in all, this would help improve server delays.
  • The following world bosses will now spawn properly in the schedule below:
