Mazara, Gallo to play one primary position in ’18

Rangers manager Jeff Banister wants to anchor Nomar Mazara in right field this season and stop the shuttle between there and left field. That may mean more time at designated hitter for Shin-Soo Choo.

“I think we’ll continue to look at Maz in right field predominantly,” Banister said. “I don’t think we’ll have the same scenario we did last year where we had those guys Texas Rangers MLB jerseys anchored up on the corners on any consistent basis on the same time.”

Mazara started 86 games in right field last year and 43 in left. He actually performed better offensively when playing in right field, finishing with a .284 batting average and a .484 slugging percentage. He hit .200 with a .333 slugging percentage while in left.

Banister is taking the same approach with Joey Gallo at first base. He is not going to play left field and won’t be needed at third base unless something happens to Adrian Beltre. As with Mazara, Banister doesn’t want Gallo shuttling between positions.

“Give them a chance to settle in and play,” Banister said. “Obviously with young guys, I think they did a great job handling those situations. It’s a lot to ask of a young player cheap jersey. We needed to and they responded for the most part very well to those situations. However, I’d like to let them concentrate on getting ready for the season.”

Choo hit better as an outfielder than as a designated hitter last year. He hit .264 with a .500 slugging percentage in 77 games in the outfield and .257 with a .340 slugging percentage in 65 games custom MLB Jerseys China at DH.

“The goal is to leave here with an idea that somebody is the guy,” Banister said.

Oh would have likely been the leading candidate to be the Rangers’ closer. Now that job is wide-open, even though Alex Claudio handled it well at the end of last season.

The Rangers never confirmed their interest in Oh, but general manager Jon Daniels admitted the club may not be done adding players.

“If we do so, I would expect it to be on the pitching side,” Daniels said.

The top free-agent reliever is Greg Holland, who made a triumphant return from Tommy John real MLB jerseys surgery and saved 41 games for the Rockies last season. The biggest caveat besides the substantial asking price is that Holland had a 6.38 ERA after the All-Star break, as opposed to 1.62 in the first half. Those who watched him said it would be understandable that Holland would wear down late in the season in his first year back from surgery. They don’t foresee that being an issue going forward.

The Rangers could also reinforce their starting pitching through free agency, which would lessen the need of putting Bush and Minor in the rotation. There is still some appeal within the Rangers camp of doing that anyway, with the idea of Bush and Minor combining with Diekman, Claudio, Keone Kela, Tony Barnette, Chris Martin and others.

That has the potential to be a lockdown bullpen. Given the Rangers’ financial austerity in pursuit of starting pitching, their best chance of competing for postseason would be combining a lockdown bullpen with an explosive offense.

Knock Off MLB Jerseys

“I think we are in better shape than we were at any point knock off MLB jerseys last season,” Banister said. “Putting Jake Diekman back in the mix with the group of guys we have makes a huge difference.”

Banister is stressing the need for a complete bullpen. The Rangers were crushed in the sixth and seventh innings last year by a combined score of 218-154.

Mazara likes what the club has done and the position it will be in this spring.

“No one is expecting much out of us,” he said. “Just wait until they see us play. Everyone has a good team [in the AL West]. Everybody is hard to face. We’ve got one goal. We’re going to go out there and give it what we got. The confidence we have is very [strong] right now.”

One of the reasons the Rangers have confidence is because they have the 22-year-old Mazara in their lineup. He followed a solid rookie season in which he hit .266 with 20 home runs and 64 RBIs with a solid sophomore campaign. Although his batting average dipped to .253, he had another 20 homers and led the club with 101 RBIs, tied for ninth in the AL.

He is just the fifth Rangers player to reach the 100-RBI mark since 2007. He also became the third Texas player to have two 20-homer seasons by his age-22 season, joining Juan Gonzalez and Ruben Sierra.

Mazara is after more consistency in 2018. He batted just .228 against left-handers in 2017, and he batted .202 in June and .205 in July.

So it was overall a good season for Mazara, but not good enough for his MLB jersey authentic.

“It was an OK season,” he said. “There were a lot of ups and downs. At some points I was playing hurt, but I played through it. Hopefully this season I can stay healthy. It was a good season for a young guy like me, but from my side, I don’t think it was that good. I could have done better. That’s why I’m working so hard, because I know there’s more that I can do with MLB throwback jerseys cheap.”

So what has Mazara been working on?

“Everything,” he said. “My plan is completely different. My mind is completely different. I know what I need to do now — hitting, defense-wise, everything. This is going to be my third year in the big leagues. I know exactly what I need to work on now.”

Yankees announce details of expanded netting

MLB Jerseys from China

The New York Yankees on Wednesday announced details regarding the additional protective netting that will be installed at Yankee Stadium in time for the April 2 home opener against the Rays.

The modifications will begin in February. The team said that partially retractable netting is being attached to the roofs of both dugouts, and stationary netting will extend beyond women Gary Sanchez jersey the far ends of the dugouts toward the foul poles.

The Yankees said last season that they were “seriously exploring” increasing the amount of netting at Yankee Stadium. A young fan was hospitalized after being hit with a Todd Frazier foul ball down the third-base line on Sept. 20.

Netting attached to the roofs of both dugouts will extend to a height of nine feet above each dugout during games. The bottom portions of these nets will be upwardly retractable by up to three feet, allowing fans to fully interact with players during batting practice.

Prior to the start of the game, the nets will connect to the dugout roof, where they will remain in place throughout the game.

Beyond the dugout, netting will extend to Section 011 on the first-base side and Section 029 on the third-base side. The netting in these locations will rise to eight feet above the playing field (approximately 5 1/2 feet above the wall surrounding the field of play), and it will remain in place from the start of batting practice through the end of the game.

Though the likelihood of a deal remains less than great for several reasons, the Yankees spoke again with Baltimore this week concerning the three-time All-Star, according to a report by MLB Network insider Jon Heyman. The Yankees haven’t commented on the report.

Machado can be a free agent after the 2018 season and is not expected to sign an extension with the Orioles, which has made the 25-year-old one of the most intriguing names on the trade market this offseason.

The Yankees would have to part with some of the top talent in their loaded farm system if they were to convince Baltimore owner Peter Angelos to deal Machado within the American League East, but they are also one of the few teams who could match up for such a trade.

The White Sox were said to have made a considerable offer for Machado during last month’s Winter Meetings. The Cardinals, Cubs, D-backs, Phillies and Red Sox have also been linked to the two-time Gold Glove Award winner, for whom Baltimore is said to be seeking a pair of controllable starting pitchers.

Aaron Judge Jersey

Cashman’s December moves created a pair of vacancies in the Yankees infield. Second baseman Starlin Castro was moved to the Marlins as part of the Giancarlo Stanton trade and third baseman Chase Headley’s salary was offloaded to the Padres, providing more latitude to keep payroll under the $197 million threshold in an effort to reset their luxury tax rate.

While Cashman has said that he is not ready to anoint Giancarlo Stanton elite jersey starters at second base and third base, the team considers Miguel Andujar and Gleyber Torres as being close to big league ready. Andujar played winter ball in the Dominican Republic and Torres, rated the game’s No. 2 prospect by MLB Pipeline, is expected to be fully recovered from Tommy John surgery in time for Spring Training.

Gamble was part of the April 1977 trade in which the Yankees sent him and right-hander LaMarr Hoyt to the White Sox in exchange for shortstop Bucky Dent. Gamble rejoined the Yanks in a trade that sent center fielder Mickey Rivers to Texas, and in ’81 he followed Reggie Jackson’s homer with one of his own, which gave the Yankees the lead cheap jerseys in an eventual 7-3 win in the decisive Game 5 of the AL Division Series against the Brewers. Gamble went 5-for-9 in that series, hitting a double and two homers.

Gamble’s wife said he was diagnosed with ameloblastoma about men Todd Frazier jersey nine years ago, according to the AP. It became ameloblastic carcinoma in 2016 and he underwent several surgeries. She said he never chewed tobacco.

“In recent years, his appearances at Old-Timers’ Day and work at our Fantasy Camp in Florida delighted those who got to reconnect with his personality and love of the game,” the Yankees said. “Oscar was a treasured member of the Yankees family and will be deeply missed by our entire organization. We offer our deepest condolences to his family, friends and all who knew him.”

Newcomb flashes leather with flip from ground

Sean Newcomb aims to reach a point when he will not be forced to battle trouble as frequently as he has during the first few months of his career. But in the process, the Braves’ southpaw will continue to rely on that same quiet intensity that fueled him as he went to the ground and found a way to finish a fantastic play in Sunday’s 8-1 win over the Reds at SunTrust Park.

“He was fighting like heck to make a play,” Braves manager Brian Snitker said. “He was just getting after it and trying to get the guy out any way he could. That’s pretty good for a big man like that.”

Moments after Ozzie Albies, who is generously listed as a 5-foot-9 second baseman, made a leaping grab, the 6-foot-5 Newcomb proved that big men can fall victim to gravity and still display their own form of agility while producing a defensive gem.

“He made a nice play crawling around,” Braves catcher Tyler Flowers said with a smile.

With the bases loaded and two outs in the third inning, Reds outfielder Adam Duvall hit a slow dribbler to the right side that might have ended up in no man’s land had Newcomb not quickly reacted.

Lying on his stomach, Newcomb fought to gain a handle of the ball and then provided a nifty flip that rolled to first baseman Freddie Freeman’s glove to end the threat.

“I couldn’t get it with my glove,” Newcomb said. “So, I reached my hand out and tipped it a little bit. Once I was on the ground, I kind of gave it that last reach and flip.”

The consecutive defenseive gems prevented the Reds from scoring in the third innings despite loading the bases with one out.

“I turned when he had already left his feet,” Newcomb said. “I knew his height, but I knew he could get up there. I figured he had a pretty good shot at it. I was pretty pumped when it didn’t get by him.”

On the way to recording his first career home win, Newcomb routinely escaped trouble. He retired just nine of the final 17 batters faced, but still completed five scoreless innings. He capped his 94-pitch performance by getting Scooter Gennett to fly out with the bases loaded in the fifth.

“I called my dad and said, ‘I’ve got some bad news for your mlb promotion codes free shipping, you can’t go to work tomorrow, you’ve got to come see your son pitch in the big leagues,'” Minter said. “It was one of those moments you dream about your whole life, to be able tell your dad. I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for him.”

Minter ranks as the Braves’ 24th-best prospect. The 23-year-old southpaw has the capability to be the best reliever Atlanta’s organization has produced since Craig Kimbrel. But injury woes have plagued him throughout this season, and he has pitched on back-to-back days just once during his professional career.

Fried, who ranks as the organization’s 10th-best prospect, got a taste of the big leagues as a reliever after the Braves opted to promote him from Double-A Mississippi on Aug. 5. The 23-year-old left-hander allowed four runs and seven hits while issuing six walks and recording four strikeouts over 6 2/3 innings for Atlanta. Most of the damage was incurred on Aug. 16, when he allowed a Trevor Story three-run homer during his mlb shop discount codes 2017 and third inning of work at Coors Field.

Phillips certainly didn’t hurt his trade value Saturday when he homered in the third inning and added an infield single during the Braves’ four-run, ninth-inning rally. The home run was the first he has hit against the Reds, who essentially dumped him in February when they agreed to pay all but $1 million of his $14 million salary and traded him to the Braves for two Minor League pitchers.

“They’re just another team,” Phillips said. “I just try to be a professional and play the game the best way with montreal canadiens jersey cheap I know how.”

Phillips hit .247 with a .574 OPS over 20 games from July 17 to Aug. 11. But he has given some contending teams something to think about, hitting .333 with three homers and a .962 OPS over his past eight games.

“It’s been working, but there’s always room for improvement,” Phillips said. “I’m having success lately. I went through a little stretch where I was hitting the ball hard and not getting hits. So, I’ve tried my best to stick with the same plan.”

Hinch tours historic Monument Park

Astros manager A.J. Hinch has been inside both versions of Yankee Stadium many times, but Friday marked the first time he toured Monument Park in center field. Hinch snapped a photo of the plaque for former Yankees pitcher and pitching coach Mel Stottlemyre Sr. and planned to text it to him.

Stottlemyre was an advisor for the Arizona Diamondbacks when Hinch was the farm director. Mel Stottlemyre Jr. was the pitching coach at the time, and Hinch has remained closed to both father and son. Mel Jr. is currently the pitching coach in Seattle.

“When both of us went to the big leagues, Mel Sr. came to Spring Training a couple of times and was just a voice of reason for a couple of young coaches, one of them being his son,” said Hinch, who managed MLB jerseys wholesale the D-backs from 2009-11. “He hung around our organization quite a bit.”

Stottlemyre has battled cancer since 2000, which was the year he won his fourth World Series ring as the Yankees’ pitching coach. Stottlemyre was a five-time All-Star as a pitcher with the Yankees, going 164-139 with a 2.97 ERA from 1964-74. He won 20 games three times.

“I’m rooting for him to feel better,” Hinch said.

Hinch told the story of going on a fishing trip several years ago in Idaho with Mel Sr. and Mel Jr. The boat they were navigating got stuck, and both Stottlemyres got into the water to try to move the boat while instructing Hinch to remain inside.

White Sox #45 Michael Jordan White(Black Strip) Flexbase Authentic Collection Memorial Day Stitched MLB Jersey“They put up a big inning,” Astros manager A.J. Hinch said. “Credit to them. They did a good job of beating our best. I think, obviously, pitch execution is always key there. He didn’t execute his pitches like he normally does and the inning got away from us. It was a big inning for them.”

Devenski entered the game with the Astros leading, 6-5, and runners at first and third base. Starlin Castro laced a double to right field to tie the game, and — after intentionally walking Aaron Judge and striking out Didi Gregorious — Chase Headley jersey tripled to right-center to clear the bases. Hinch pulled Devenski from the game after a Chris Carter double.

“Making pitches is one of our strengths out of the pen, and this is going to happen from time to time,” Hinch said. “It’s not our norm because our guys have been so good and so excellent in executing pitches, so when it doesn’t happen it’s painful. Make pitches is the key to our bullpen strength. When these guys have a bad day, it’s noticeable.”

The Yankees were 2-for-3 off Devenski’s changeup, which is his best pitch. He struck out Gregorious with it, but Headley hit a changeup for a triple and Carter doubled. Opponents were hitting .098 (4-for-41) off his change coming into the game.

“Those definitely weren’t my best changeups,” he said. “I didn’t really execute well on that fastball to Castro. I wanted it in and it was out over the plate and he put a good piece on it.”

Harris began the inning with a two-run lead, but allowed a one-out single to Brett Gardner despite a close pitch that could have been called a strike. Jacoby Ellsbury followed with a double, and Matt Holliday’s cheap jerseys and single scored Gardner, prompting Hinch to bring in Devenski.

Strong April results weren’t there in 2016, when Keuchel struggled through inflammation in his rotator cuff all season and got off to a 2-3 start with a 4.41 ERA. But a full offseason of rest placed the 29-year-old in a good frame of mind and health entering ’17, and the results have responded in kind.

“It’s satisfying,” Keuchel said. “We couldn’t have asked for a better start to the season.”

Some might see it as unfortunate that Keuchel’s turn in the rotation narrowly misses the four-game series between the Astros and division rival Rangers, which starts Monday. But the stabilizing presence of Houston’s ace gives them momentum heading into the series, as well as confidence coming out once Keuchel takes the mound Friday to open up a series in Anaheim.

“It’s always nice when Dallas’ turn rolls around,” Hinch said. “I don’t think anybody ever argues when their lead guy gets out there on the mound.”

McHugh gets checked out after rehab setback

Astros right-hander Collin McHugh, who began the season on the 10-day disabled list with right shoulder tendinitis, arrived in Houston mid-afternoon Friday to visit with the team’s medical staff.

cheap chinese jerseys

McHugh is being reevaluated because he had to leave Thursday’s rehab start at Triple-A Fresno after one inning due to tightness in his elbow and biceps mens softball jerseys wholesale.

The hope had been that McHugh would pitch five stress-free innings for the Grizzlies and then report to the Astros, where he was 13-10 with a 4.34 ERA last season following a breakthrough 2015 that saw him go 19-7 with a 3.89 ERA.

“We expected him to go five innings,” Astros manager A.J. Hinch said. “It certainly caused him to come home. It’s unfortunate that he had a little setback. He didn’t finish his outing, so we’re certainly disappointed for his official mlb jerseys wholesale.”

McHugh was on a rehab assignment for Fresno after arm fatigue early in the spring caused him to fall behind in his throwing program.

After allowing three runs on three hits with a walk in a 27-pitch first inning, McHugh took the mound to warm up for the second, but he didn’t feel well enough to continue.

Correa’s comments come one day after his agent, Greg Genske, told FanRag Sports that Correa “is never going to do an [early] multi-year contract.” The report said Correa’s contract was renewed at the Major League minimum of $535,000 this season.

“I’ve still got five more years of being here, so if the Astros come to me and they want to negotiate and the price is right, we’ll consider it,” Correa said. “Right now, I’m in the stage of my career where I’m just going to play baseball and try to put up numbers. They try to do something, it’s got to be early. … I’ve got to focus on playing good baseball so I can have good arbitration years.”

Correa, who got a $4.8 million signing bonus after the Astros made him the No. 1 pick in the 2012 Draft, figures to make tens of millions if he plays out his three arbitration years (2019-21) prior to becoming a free agent. He could be a free agent at the age of 27, at the earliest.

Correa said he wouldn’t want to make a bad deal and would wait for the right one, but said the Astros haven’t approached him yet.

Astros #4 George Springer White New Cool Base Stitched MLB Jersey“They haven’t talked to me about anything,” he said. “That’s why I’m not worried about it. They haven’t talked to me about cheap jerseys money, they haven’t talked to me about an extension, they haven’t talked to me about being here for a longer time. I’m just playing baseball here with the Houston Astros.

“I love the team, I love the guys in this clubhouse, I love the fans, I love our stadium, so hopefully I can stay in Houston for the rest of my career and cheap mlb jerseys wholesale.”

“It means a lot,” Altuve said. “Every time you steal a base, you are also helping your team. I’m trying to play hard at 100 percent. It feels good to get to 200.”

JBJ makes yet another highlight-reel grab

Red Sox center fielder Jackie Bradley Jr. knows a laser when it leaves his bat, and he also might have a hidden talent for guessing his own exit velocity.

mlb jerseys cheap

After squaring up a key triple to help lead the Red Sox to a 5-3 victory over the Pirates in Monday’s Opening Day at Fenway, Bradley was asked how hard he hit that ball.

“I’m going to say 111 [mph],” said Bradley, emphasizing that it was purely a guess.

Statcast™ registered the triple at 110.6 mph leaving Bradley’s bat, coming off of a 96.9-mph heater by Bucs ace Gerrit Cole.

It was the hardest ball Bradley has hit in the Statcast™ era, which started in 2015.

Monday marked the latest demonstration of how much Bradley helps the Red Sox as a two-way player.

In the top of the fourth, with the game scoreless, Bradley made an impressive catch against the railing of Boston’s bullpen to rob Francisco Cervelli of extra bases. The catch probability, according to Statcast™, was 55 percent, making it a three-star grab.

But what Statcast™ couldn’t account for was the fact Bradley had the wall railing to contend with and some sunlight. He actually did a little cheap jerseys route adjustment while in pursuit.

Red Sox #41 Chris Sale Navy Blue New Cool Base Stitched MLB Jersey“I knew what vicinity it was going to be in, and then heading towards the wall, it was adjusting to the sun, actually,” said Bradley. “I had to get around it, because the ball was in the sun momentarily. I had to wait for it to come out. That was right around the time when I was going to hit the wall. I just tried to keep my focus, stick with it.”

Wearing No. 19 this season — which was donned decades ago by another standout Red Sox center fielder named Fred Lynn — Bradley has a similar view of walls as the 1975 World Series hero.

“I don’t care about the wall, I’m going to catch the ball,” said Bradley.

And that he did, bringing the Fenway faithful of 36,594 to its collective feet.
Off the bat, Cervelli hoped he had a hit.

“Oh yeah, but it’s Bradley,” said Cervelli. “He’s been doing those kind of plays for years now. It doesn’t surprise me. He’s a pro, one of the best over there.”

Dellin Betances fired a lockdown eighth for mlb jerseys cheap of the Yankees, but Aroldis Chapman labored in the ninth to earn his fifth save. The lefty gave up a hit and a run while walking two and striking out two and generated just two swings and misses in 33 pitches.

In a losing effort, Red Sox righty Rick Porcello allowed five hits and two earned runs over 6 2/3 innings, walking four and striking out nine.

“I think the sinker and four-seam, the combination of both, was pretty solid today,” Porcello said. “So I’ve got to keep building off that. The walks, they’ll come back to hurt you.”

Greg Bird gave the Yankees some insurance with an RBI single off the Green Monster in the sixth to score Judge, who started the rally with cheap mlb jerseys from china and a two-out walk.

Judge goes oppo: Judge jumped on the first Porcello pitch he saw, an 88.7-mph two-seamer, and belted it to the front row of seats beyond the visitors’ bullpen for his seventh homer of the season. According to Statcast™, the blast had an exit velocity of 109.7 mph and had a projected distance of 385 feet.

“I’m glad I was able to get two runs on the board early against a former Cy Young winner,” said Judge. ” I know he has good stuff, so I was just trying to attack him early and get something over the plate.”

Late drama: Chapman issued a leadoff walk to Andrew Benintendi, and Mookie Betts doubled to set up Chris Young’s RBI groundout. Jackie Bradley Jr. whiffed and Josh Rutledge also went down swinging to end the game, but not before making the Yanks gulp with a long foul ball down the left-field line.

As Bradley roared around the bases, Andrew McCutchen had a lonely feeling on the first official day of his position switch to right field.

“It’s a pinball machine,” McCutchen said. “I knew that was going to happen — that’s what it’s going to do. Balls are going to hit one way then hit another way, hit another wall. You’ve got to try to do your best to catch the ball cleanly and get it in. That’s just one of those things that’s going to happen.”

After a solid season last year, Bradley looks forward to again making things happen for the Red Sox in 2017.

Jones: Tony Romo one of best Cowboys players ever

The Dallas Cowboys officially parted ways with quarterback Tony Romo on Tuesday.

Romo will join CBS as the station’s lead analyst.

Upon Romo’s retirement, owner Jerry Jones called the quarterback, who had been with the Cowboys for 14 seasons, one of the best players in the franchise’s illustrious history.

“We wish Tony and his family nothing but the best,” Jones said in a statement. “As an organization, we did what he asked us to do in terms of his release, and we wanted to do what was ultimately in his best interest and in cheap mlb jerseys the best interest of his family.

“Tony has been a wonderful representative of the Cowboys organization for 14 years, and he left everything he had on the field. He will leave us with many great memories and a legacy of being, truly, one of the greatest players in Cowboys history. We are thrilled for him and his family that he will be able to continue working as a professional in the game he so dearly loves.

“He is a young man who is just getting started on a long journey in life. All the best my friend.”

cheap nike nfl jerseys wholesale

Despite questions about his future, and the Cowboys’ delay in releasing Romo, it’s clear that his relationship with the organization never deteriorated.

“Tony Romo has a unique combination of athletic ability, arm talent, vision, and instincts for the game,” coach Jason Garrett added. “What separates Tony from many other players, however, is a rare competitive spirit. Tony loves to play. Tony loves to compete. The best ones always do. In practice. During games. On the field. Off the field. Tony competes to the end in wholesale jerseys  everything that he does.

The first is that early November game against the Kansas City Chiefs at home. The other? Also in Dallas against the Los Angeles Chargers on Thanksgiving Day.

Of course, the cynic in me is fully prepared for Romo to be in a Cowboys uniform by Thanksgiving this year but assuming all goes according to plan, this will be a palatable breakdown of Romo-Cowboy games. After usurping Phil Simms’ No. 1 slot at the network, all eyes will be on the rookie analyst and he’ll need some seasoning before handling something as public as a Cowboys reunion.

Nike Cowboys #21 Ezekiel Elliott Navy Blue Thanksgiving Men's Stitched NFL Limited Gold JerseyRomo’s ability to analyze a game already will be under scrutiny without going into his responsibility to be fair to an organization that deified him for the better part of a decade. Given the circumstances that led to his meteoric rise in the broadcasting industry, an 11-game head and jerseys for cheap start might be necessary, not just a fortunate break.

It’s also important not to overthink this. Whether or not Romo is ready, CBS will want him in the chair for Cowboys games. This is what they paid for. Thursday night on the Rich Eisen Show, Romo’s broadcast booth partner, Jim Nantz, seemed to have no doubt that he and Romo will be in the chair for both Dallas/CBS crossover games.

“Looks like Romo will be making the turkey and the stuffing and we’ll have a little feast and football with the Chargers and the Cowboys and you’re right, (the Kansas City game) would be Tony’s first game to do with the Cowboys,” Nantz said. “I believe that’s Week 9, yeah, I’m sure for Tony that will be a special thing to look at the Cowboys from that magnificent broadcast booth that they have at Cowboys Stadium.”

Save 50 percent on MLB.TV this weekend

In honor and appreciation of U.S. military and their families, Major League Baseball Advanced Media announced a special MLB.TV and Cheap MLB Jerseys Memorial Day Weekend sale to offer 50 percent off the yearly and single-team subscription price between now and Monday night.

Marlins center fielder Christian Yelich can attest to the value of MLB.TV to displaced military families. His brother Cameron has been able to follow games that way.

“It just allows my family to watch the games, whether they’re at work or traveling,” said Yelich, who also played in last year’s historic Fort Bragg Game, the first official MLB game on a military base. “My mom works late, so she’s not always home for the games. My brother is in the Marine Corps, and he’s all over the place. It just expands the game of baseball jersey. It allows more people to view it. I think that was their ultimate goal, and they’re succeeding.”

Joe Coluzzi, a White Sox fan from the Chicago suburbs and a lance corporal in the U.S. Marine Corps currently stationed at Camp Pendleton, Calif., is among those who can appreciate what a difference MLB.TV means to those who serve their country while stationed away from their favorite team. He signed up in the first month of this season when he found out about the normal 35-percent discount for military and students.

“This is my first time using MLB.TV, because it is my first year being away from home and not being able to watch games on my own TV,” Coluzzi said in an email to MLB.com. “I use my laptop to stream the games, whenever I’m free and able to watch them. I am very pleased with the service, because it allows me to watch the games on my laptop, just as if I were watching them with wholesale MLB jerseys at home. I love listening to Hawk [Harrelson] announce games, and I will without a doubt continue using MLB.TV to watch White Sox games for as long as I am away from home.”

Dan Horton is a 14-year Army veteran currently based at Fort Meade (Md.) as an E6/Staff Sergeant. He is a longtime Braves fan from Manhattan, Kan., and he also has adopted the Orioles since being stationed in their backyard. Horton is subscribing to MLB.TV for the fourth year in a row, and he said the Memorial Day Weekend discount makes life easier in the service.
“Unfortunately, many of us in the military don’t make much, and with bills, families and other priorities, this discount was an unbelievable welcome sight, and made the decision to renew that much easier,” Horton said. “Military families who love baseball and have an out-of-market team they follow should definitely take advantage of the discount offered to us. MLB.TV is a fantastic service that is as close to real time as you can get.”

MLB and the military have gone hand-in-hand as institutions for more than a century. Many stars such as Bob Feller jersey, Willie Mays, Ted Williams and Joe DiMaggio sacrificed portions of their careers to serve during wartime, and MLB was there as important relief in those times. At last year’s Fort Bragg Game between Miami and Atlanta, Commissioner Rob Manfred spoke of “Major League Baseball’s boundless gratitude to the military.”

This is a fact of life year-round for MLB and its 30 clubs, and this weekend’s games will be further celebration of military families, with players wearing special tribute uniforms as part of the festivities. The MLB.TV Memorial Day Weekend sale is a further nod to military, and everyone can enjoy a promotion that makes it more affordable to get the No. 1 sports streaming service that turns 15 on Aug. 26.

Eye got it: Gattis’ strike zone work paying off

Through one week of the regular season, catcher/designated hitter Evan Gattis led the Astros in walks and on-base percentage, and it’s not by accident. Gattis has been working for quite some time in better strike-zone judgment.

Gattis drew a career-high three walks on Sunday, including the game-winner with the bases loaded in the 12th inning to push his total to five walks this season.

“Just being aware of how you do in the zone versus out of the zone, and just do your best to locate an area that you really want the ball and anything that kind of deviates from that, do your best to shut it down,” Gattis said while explaining his approach.

With the additions of Carlos Beltran and Brian McCann, there were some questions about how much playing time Gattis would get, but he’s started five of the team’s first eight games with MLB jerseys for sale. Gattis did lead the club in home runs (32) last year and was second to only Jose Altuve in OPS, so he’s proven he can be an impact bat in the lineup.

And if Gattis can keep drawing walks, he’ll make a bigger impact.

“It’s nice to see him take it into the games a little bit and be selective,” Astros manager A.J. Hinch said. “As his maturity happens, he can do so much damage. We’ve seen him hit a ton of bad balls for homers or doubles or triples, so he gets rewarded sometimes by just swinging. As a productive overall hitter, he’s shown that he can be a little more disciplined. … Getting the at-bat to the next guy will be key for us, so when we have to take a walk, we take a walk.”

Gattis had five hits in his first 14 at-bats, which is a far cry from the 4-for-26 start he got off to last year after missing the first week following offseason hernia surgery. Two years ago, he got off to a 5-for-42 start with 17 strikeouts.

“It’s hard not to,” McCann said. “Right field is so short and left, left-center, it’s hard to hit the ball in the gaps there. I think over time, I felt like I was doing just enough to do a wholesale change and last year was like, ‘it’s time.'”

McCann said the adjustment was more about hitting the ball “where it’s pitched,” though that led to some adjustments with his front shoulder. Not letting the ball get so deep into the plate also means he’ll make contact and jerseys deal earlier, making it more likely he’ll hit some balls to left field.

“I spent a lot of time getting my swing back to where it was when I first broke in and my first seven, eight years,” he said. “It was nice for it to pay off.”

Hitting the ball the other way more will help neutralize the shifts McCann sees regularly. In the seventh inning on Tuesday, McCann grounded out against lefty reliever Marc Rzepczynski jersey on a ball Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano fielded in shallow right field.

“It’s not going anywhere,” McCann said of the shift. “At the same time, I need to be good enough to hit the ball where it’s pitched.”

“I was talking to my hitting coach in the dugout and asked, ‘What’s going on here?’ I told him it looked like a fastball, and I was swinging right through it.”

One year later when Devenski switched from shortstop to pitcher, he had those at-bats in mind.

“With the arm speed I have, maybe I can reverse that,” Devenski said.

That’s the key. Devenski’s fastball and changeup are thrown with the same arm action, giving hitters no time to adjust.

“You’re going to get a hitter on arm speed,” Devenski sad. “You’re going to fool ’em on that. I’ve trusted throwing it with as much arm speed and conviction as I have. I’ve been able to keep that good movement on it.”

And there’s Devenski’s makeup.

Mitchell And Ness 1988 Astros #34 Nolan Ryan Navy Blue Throwback Stitched MLB Jersey“I don’t think fear enters into his mind at all,” Luhnow said. “That’s a big reason he’s as good as he is. His mound presence is incredible as is his desire to be out there and to compete every single day. He’ll take the ball with the same intensity every single time regardless of the score.”

Devenski arrived in one of Luhnow’s first trades, this one in the summer of 2012, in a deal that sent veteran right-hander Brett Myers to the White Sox.

Luhnow credits assistant general manager Mike Elias for picking Devenski out of the White Sox’s farm system.

“We wanted guys with high upsides,” Luhnow said, “and that’s what Devo has. He battles every hitter as if it were the ninth inning of the seventh game of the World Series.”

As Houston catcher Evan Gattis said, “He’s one of the best competitors I’ve ever been around. His arm speed is excellent, but it’s what that [changeup] does after he throws it. It’s got great movement and creates great deception.”

How long will Devenski have this role? He’d logically become a starter or a closer as his career unfolds. But teams are also beginning to understand the value of having someone who does exactly what Devenski does.

“I can see him doing a little bit of everything,” Astros manager A.J. Hinch said. “I think he could get the last three outs of a game if we needed that. I don’t think one particular role will define this guy. His demeanor, his pitch repertoire, his ability to throw strikes, his mentality, it bodes well for him.”

Seager feeling no pain in strained oblique

Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager returned to Minor League game action Tuesday and said he felt no discomfort from the strained oblique that has sidelined him since March 4.

On a back field, Seager went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts, but came away pleased nonetheless. He still believes he will be ready for Opening Day by getting extra at-bats in Minor League games over the next two weeks.

“The results weren’t there, but it was positive,” said Seager. “Just to get over the mental hurdle, to be full-go. I’ve been throwing, but the swinging needed the game intensity. It’s hard to replicate that. It was nice to get jerseys for cheap into a game.”

After a team day off Wednesday, Seager said he plans to play in another Minor League game Thursday, this time also playing defense. The injury was believed to have happened when he made an off-balance throw to first base while completing a double play.

He said he hasn’t had any recurrence of the discomfort while throwing in drills, but hasn’t played at game speed, either.

“It could have happened on [the double play], it could have been irritated before and that was when I felt it, I’m not sure,” he said. “It was nice to go full-go and have nothing with MLB wholesale jerseys today.”

Teammate Scott Kazmir, working through major mechanical issues, pitched five innings of the Minor League game. He last pitched in a Cactus League game March 6.

“If I throw a bullpen tomorrow, they’ll probably tell me what the plan is,” Urias said. “I’m fighting for a spot in the rotation, and it seems this is the way they are managing me, and I have to respect that. You don’t know what’s going to happen. You hope everyone stays healthy, first and foremost, but you don’t know what’s going to happen.”

The 20-year-old Urias’ innings have been limited by management, and now he’s coming off a bout with strep throat that was a further setback in his preparation.

Urias has pitched 5 2/3 Cactus League innings this spring. There are 14 Dodgers pitchers with more, including the five that figure to be in the rotation: Clayton Kershaw, Kenta Maeda, Rich Hill, Brandon McCarthy and Alex Wood.

Dodgers #31 Joc Pederson Grey New Cool Base Stitched MLB JerseyDodgers manager Dave Roberts said the door “hasn’t closed” on Urias being in the rotation to start the season, even though he mentioned the other five as being “lined up” with their next scheduled starts.

“It would be unrealistic to say he’ll start the season built up completely,” Roberts said. “The door’s not closed. To say he’s up to 100 pitches is not realistic. There’s a certain amount of innings that we’re trying to find a way to have those innings when it matters most. All the games matter, I get that, but we’re still navigating our way with MLB jerseys of Julio.”

Dodgers reliever Pedro Baez came out of the same workout as Ravin in good shape. Although time is running out in spring, Baez still could be ready by Opening Day. He said there is lingering discomfort in his right thumb, which sustained a deep bruise when struck by a comebacker during live batting practice Feb. 22.

Friday was the first time Baez has faced hitters since then, and he was able to use all of his pitches while pitching at a faster pace than his norm.

Although Sergio Romo still hasn’t thrown off a mound since returning from the World Baseball Classic with a sore back, the club has indicated he will be ready for Opening Day and his slow return to the mound is precautionary.

The 34-year-old Romo signed as a free agent to replace setup man Joe Blanton, and he has pitched in only two early Cactus League games for the Dodgers. He pitched in two games for Team Mexico in the Classic (1 1/3 innings, three runs), after playing in the Mexican Winter League (nine games, 9 2/3 innings, one run).

Romo was the Giants’ primary closer in 2013-14, when he recorded a combined 61 saves. He pitched well in a setup role in 2015-16, compiling a 2.64 ERA last year when limited to 40 appearances because of a right forearm flexor strain.
