Still no timetable for David Price’s return to the Rays rotation

The placed reigning AL Cy Young award winner on the 15-day DL with a  10 days ago, and there is still no timetable for his return, according to .

“I honestly have no idea,” said Price when asked for a possible return date. “You have to give it a chance to heal, a chance to get better, and that’s what we’re doing right now. … It all depends on how I feel when I play catch. Not trial and error, but we’re going have to base it on day-to-day.”

Price, 27, made sure to mention he has been doing strengthening exercises and the triceps is pain-free. “I feel great. And that’s probably the toughest thing for me right now is my arm feels the way it does, and my body feels the way it does, and I’m not able to do anything yet because we just have to give it time, and I understand that,” he added.

In nine starts before the injury, Price comments.Agnelli has questioned La Dea’s entry into the Champions League due to their modest history.“I find it absurd enough, at this moment, to return to the subject,” Cairo responded in the Gazzetta dello Sport. “There are no differences comp pitched to a 5.24 ERA and 1.44 WHIP in 55 innings.

I never ever thought that on the day I signed for Leicester I’d play for you as long ined him in the minor leagues in 2008.

Right-hander Jake Odorizzi allowed three runs in five innings against the Blue Jays last week as the rotation fill-in. He’ll start again on Monday. If he pitches well enough during Price’s absence, he could stick with the team and replace the ineffective Roberto Hernandez (5.73 ERA and 1.44 WHIP).

Hitting coach Rick Eckstein said Moore is missing on too many fastballs, which he added is also a problem for Danny Espinosa, who is also off to a slow start.

“They have to get back on the fastball,” Eckstein said. “You can’t be in between. …. When you are facing guys as tough as Kershaw, you are not going to get too many pitches that are over the heart of the plate. The breaking stuff, when it’s down in the zone, it has late sharp bite on it. It’s pretty good. You have to get on the fastball.

Now middle infielders offer offense — and strikeouts


Time was, the middle of the infield was a place for guys who could catch the ball and not hurt a club too much with the bat.

But as offensive production numbers have increased across the board, it is an area that is helping fuel the record strikeout numbers we’re seeing today in Major League Baseball.

Three of the National League’s top four in strikeouts last season were second basemen. The ’ led the league at 189, the ’ was third at 169 and the ’ was fourth at 168.

Uggla (43) and Weeks (39) are right back at it again this season, ranking second and fourth in strikeouts in the season’s first few weeks.

“I remember Billy Ripken when I was in Baltimore, we didn’t care what he hit as long as he was doing the little things offensively to help us,” said Brewers general manager Doug Melvin, who was an executive with the Orioles for nine seasons bCity manager Daniel Farke admits that his side are going down unless they improve quickly.He was disappointed at how they capitulated in a 3-0 defeat to Wolves at the weekend in the Premier League.The Canaries are bottom of the table and seven pointseginning in 1986. “Today, it’s the mentality that everybody at Arsenal on Thursday ahead of moving to Juventus.After eleven years at the club, Aaron Ramsey had his final day at Arsenal’s London Colney training ground on Thursday.Ramsey will officially become a Juventus player on July 1, having signed a pre-y is viewed by offensive stats.

“Does anybody grade how many times a guy battles? Does anybody grade how many times he moves the runners?”

Executives have had to change along with the game, but Melvin still picks his battles. Milwaukee utility infielder , who played third base in the absence of earlier this season, is one.

“Everybody rips him because he doesn’t walk and he swings at the first pitch,” Melvin says. “The league average when you put the first pitch in play is .320. Maybe the first pitch is the best pitch to hit.”

Last season, 20 of the 30 major league clubs endured 100 or more strikeouts from their second base position.

And 23 ofa is being scouted regularly by Manchester United.FCInterNews reports he put in a fine performance as Verona drew 1-1 with Inter Milan last weekend. With a United scout apparently present, the report says the club will join the race for the defender the 30 clubs watched their shortstop position strike out 100 or more times.

“In our era, when I first came up, the scout who signed me said if I hit .250 and played good defense, I’ll be in the big leagues for a long time,” former Tigers shortstop and current Diamondbacks coach Alan Trammell says. “That was 1976.

“I was at the early wave of the start of a little bit more offense. Obviously it’s been taken, by middle infielders, to a different level.”

And, along with the extraordinarily more prolific offensive numbers of recent generations have come soaring strikeout totals.

Be careful what you wish for.

Or, you take what you get.

In his column Tuesday, Scott White set says Gunners players will return to training for the first time on Tuesday since being placed on self-isolation after the positive coronavirus test recorded by manager Mikel Arteta.The news that the Gunners boss had tested positive for COVID-19 was about ranking his top disabled list stashes, and he ranks first baseman No. 12.
