Yankees Double-A scouting reports

Gregorius is hitless in his last 28 at-bats.

He was hitting.333 with 10 home runs on May Since then, he’s seen his batting average drop to.27Over that span, his OPS has also fallen from 1.130 to.94

Gregorius was named the American League Player of the Month in April.

Especially when you have Aaron (Judge) hitting second. It kind of allows for traffic because how much he’s been getting on base and as many good at-bats he gives us at the bottom. So, right now, the way our lineup sets up, no immediate plans to move him up, but I’m always kicking around stuff.

NBA Playoffs 2018: What time, TV, channel is Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Boston Celtics Game 1 (5/13/18)?

We’re pushing everybody to start, Wilks explained. I’ve stated this several times: Sam Bradford is our starter. We gotta go out there with 11 guys and Sam’s going to be the first guy out there. But everybody’s fighting for a position, so I’m not going to hold [Rosen] back at all.

I want guys competing, I want guys fighting for a starting job. Whoever ends up winning the position, that’s who’s going to end up playing.

Although Bradford’s reputation has taken a hit via the incessant injury bug, he’s been one of the most accurate — and overlooked — quarterbacks in the league as an intermittent starter.

The Cardinals brought Bradford in to direct the offense, Wilks recently told The Adam Schefter Podcast, and he believes the former Vikings quarterback is one of the best in the business right now.

It’s natural for the head coach to stand behind the veteran in the draft’s aftermath. We see it every offseason. Over the past 10 years, though, 20 of 27 first-round quarterbacks have started at least eight games in their rookie seasons.

Jon Gruden: Martavis Bryant Jersey brings ‘different dynamic’

Jon Gruden’s Raiders spent the offseason importing a wave of new receiving threats for Derek Carr, signing Jordy Nelson and trading for Martavis Bryant and Ryan Switzer during the draft.
Nike Youth Jabrill Peppers Limited Olive/USA Flag Jersey - Cleveland Browns NFL #22 2017 Salute to Service
On the high side of the potential bell curve, combining Nelson’s red-zone acumen and Bryant’s field-stretching ability to Amari Cooper ‘s do-everything skillset could provide Oakland the foundation of a stellar receiving corps.

The combination of Cooper, Nelson, and Bryant looks good on paper, if each lives up to his potential. If Cooper bounces back from a disappointing season, if Nelson finds young legs now that he’s back with a Pro Bowl QB, and if Bryant lives up to his natural ability, the Raiders would boast a corps that complements each other and could win at every level. Like most of Oakland’s composition in Gruden’s first spring, however, that’s a ton of ifs to overcome as we sit in mid-May.

The 32-year-old is apparently holding out hope he can still play. Avril told Bob Papa and Ed McCaffrey on SiriusXM NFL Radio’s The Womens Wilbert Montgomery Jersey Opening Drive he’s been contacted by a few teams regarding his availability.
James Patrick Kids Jersey
The question is whether Avril would get cleared by doctors following a career-threatening neck injury.

But for me it’s all about just seeing what the doc says, Avril said. I’m not really too concerned about where I might end up or anything like that. I actually just told everybody that I’m going to be working at a radio station, KJR 950 in Seattle. We’ll see how it shakes out, though.
Jonnu Smith Kids Jersey
The Seahawks released Avril with a failed physical designation. While he hasn’t formally announced plans to retire — at least until he hears from doctors again — the 10-year NFL veteran is talking like a man leaning towards walking away.

C.J. Anderson expects great complementary relationship with Christian McCaffrey Jersey

Running back C.J. Anderson signed a one-year contract with the Panthers on Monday and told the media a short time later that he’s in Carolina because he believes the team’s approach definitely fits my style and my game.

The Blazers are competitive in the second round of the playoffs. Winning a series wouldn’t be new for the Blazers in the Lillard-McCollum era, though they benefited from injuries to Blake Griffin and Chris Paul during their first-round win over the Clippers two years ago. To justify the luxury-tax bill that re-signing Nurkic and backup center Ed Davis would likely require, Portland could use a couple wins in a matchup with one of the West’s powers.

Anthony Davis vs. Jusuf Nurkic. Although Jrue Holiday vs. Damian Lillard might be more compelling in terms of overall talent, the center matchup in this series will probably be more important to the outcome. Portland’s defensive scheme is centered around keeping Nurkic in the paint to defend the rim; Donald Trump Authentic Jersey according to Second Spectrum data, Nurkic defended 8.9 shots per 100 possessions inside the restricted area, third most among starting centers. Davis’ ability to pull Nurkic away from the basket, either in isolations or in pick-and-pop plays, will provide other Pelicans an opportunity to penetrate.

Morgan will be the director of player personnel in Buffalo. He’ll work under General Manager Brandon Beane, who was in Carolina when Morgan was a player. Beane said in a statement that Morgan’s work ethic as a player and in the Seahawks front office convinced him he was the right man for the job.
Limited Mens Reggie Miller Jersey
First thing we were looking for was culture fit, Beane said. I was in Carolina when we drafted Dan as a player and he would be a ‘Bills blue’ as our kind of guy.

Morgan will fill a role occupied by Brian Gaine last season. Gaine moved on to become the Texans General Manager this offseason.

Limited Mens Leonard Floyd Jersey Detroit Tigers — The men from Motown have played the most contests under 40 and under 50 degrees at game time. The biggest takeaway from the cold-weather data is home runs are tempered in the cold, so don’t sweat only one homer from Castellanos. In fact, be encouraged he has slugged six doubles with a pair of triples. Most interesting is Castellanos’ already increasing fly ball rate continues to climb while his hard-hit rate is an astounding 52 percent. That will regress, but for his career, Castellanos carries a well above-average hard-hit clip so expect his lofted balls to begin clearing the fences as the mercury rises.

Royce Freeman Jersey not concerned about college workload, believes it proves his durability

Running backs have almost always been viewed Chris Ivory Womens Jersey as a diminishing property in the NFL. It became commonplace to expect running backs to fall off a cliff from a production standpoint once they reached 30 years old. Even more recently, the amount of investment in running backs has lessened as productive options seem to be relatively cheap and plentiful.

Perhaps more importantly, what does he deserve?

Regardless of what he wants or what he deserves, the franchise-tag dance puts him at $119.18 million over three years 鈥?an average of nearly $40 million per year. If the Seahawks don鈥檛 tag him for a third time, Wilson would hit the open market (a la Cousins) in 2022, at the age of 33.

As long as Wilson stays healthy and effective, a willingness to wait gives him more leverage than any quarterback will have ever had. Which means that he鈥檒l either get a record-setting deal at some point to stay in Seattle. Or he鈥檒l get that record-setting deal as an unrestricted free agent.

Kenny Vaccaro Mens Jersey Neither has a job at the moment, and it鈥檚 hard to not connect that to their political stances. Reid was one of the first players to kneel alongside Kaepernick during the national anthem, when the quarterback began protesting police brutality and racial inequality. Both players worked through the ends of their contracts, and haven鈥檛 found another one.

They鈥檙e also both pursuing collusion claims, which gained steam after Reid visited the Bengals but was reportedly asked by owner Mike Brown whether he intended to continue kneeling.

So the two worked out together, with Reid joking: I should have been a receiver.

Otherwise, neither player had much to offer, which gives them something in common with NFL teams who have job opportunities.

Jerome Brown Mens Jersey The Penguins lost that night, won the Cup the next game, won it again last year, and seemed destined to make it three in a row, misguided 3LIEVE motto notwithstanding. The push ended last night against the Capitals, and so I invited my Internet son (a/k/a PFT Commenter of Barstool Sports鈥?Pardon My Take) to join PFT Live to bask in the glow of a moment he鈥檒l never forget.

The Seahawks probably could have predicted Bosworth in the NFL would be known more for his off-field antics than his on-field performance.

Pickens was projected to be a star defensive back due to his athleticism, and the Falcons took the bait. He was, to put it frankly, terrible in the NFL. Pickens was traded to the Packers during the 1993 season, a little more than two years after the Falcons drafted him. In just eight starts in Atlanta (27 games) through a little more than two seasons, he managed two interceptions and one sack.

He was decent on the field — save for the infamous Bo Jackson encounter — until a bad shoulder forced his retirement during his third NFL season. Bosworth started just 24 games for Seattle.

Minkah Fitzpatrick won’t go in the top five, but he will have plenty of options in the top half of the draft. While some teams consider him an impactful nickel corner, other teams like the Bears, Raiders, Dolphins and Cardinals view him as an impact outside cornerback/safety. The Cardinals likely will consider Fitzpatrick, Iowa’s Josh Jackson or a quarterback with the 15th overall pick.

Iowa corner Josh Jackson is quietly coveted by NFL teams. He, Washington defensive tackle Vita Vea and Boston College defensive end Harold Landry are considered the best of the second tier of non-QB prospects.

Rick Porcello (R), 88.6 percent, Boston Red Sox at Los Angeles Angels: The Halos lead the majors with a .358 wOBA and a 39.3 hard-contact rate, per Fangraphs, both of which will prove difficult for the strikeout-wary Porcello to tame, despite his 3-0, 1.83 ERA and recent near no-hitter.

Wide Receiver: Ever since the loss of Steve Smith in 2014, the Panthers have lacked a consistent receiving corps. Devin Funchess emerged as a quality weapon in 2017 but Carolina needs to improve a group that still looks extremely shaky despite the addition Torrey Smith and Jarius Wrigcanucks_670ht in free agency.

Defensive End: The Panthers have always prided themselves on having a ferocious front seven and this season should be no different. Mario Addison, Julius Peppers and Wes Horton make a solid trio at defensive end. Still, getting younger needs to be a top priority for Carolina come draft day.

Saints signing Ohio State QB J.T. Barrett Jersey to 3-year deal

Former Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett won’t attend the Saints rookie minicamp on a tryout basis, after all.
Men's Minnesota Wild #3 Charlie Coyle Reebok White Away Premier NHL Jersey
Instead, the former Buckeye signal caller will attend the minicamp as a bona fide member of the team.

The Saints are signing Barrett as an undrafted free agent, NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo reported. NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport adds it’s a three-year deal for the signal-caller.

Second-round CB Duke Dawson eases the Malcolm Butler divorce. The Pats also swung a deal for San Francisco RT Trent Brown, who’s started 26 games over the past two seasons, and picked up Chicago’s second-round pick in 2019. The head scratcher was the decision not to take a quarterback who could develop behind Tom Brady… unless LSU’s Danny Etling surprises on a Brady-esque level.
Elite Youth Martin St. Louis Jersey
GM Mike Maccagnan’s gamble to trade up three spots to No. 3 (for three second rounders) paid off more handsomely than he probably could have imagined. Eight months ago, Jets fans wondered if their team would go 0-16 in order to secure QB Sam Darnold. New York finished 5-11 but got Darnold, who’d likely win an election as the draft’s top passing prospect,聽anyway. Now, will he end the Jets’ perpetual quest for a franchise passer?聽Third-round DL Nathan Shepherd and fourth-round TE Chris Herndon could both be Week 1 starters, though that says as much about the state of the roster as it does about their readiness.

Mills shared this scenario in a post-Draft edition of The Business of Sports with Andrew Brandt podcast.

We had another team, which is going to surprise you. Another team had said,’You may get a big surprise on draft day, at No. 2, if he’s available.’ And it was the Patriots, Mills told Brandt, via Orlando Scandrick Jersey ESPN. They had (No.) 23 and they had (No.) 31 and they had two seconds. We thought,’That’s gonna be a heck of a move, to get up that high from where they are.’ And, of course, he wasn’t available, so we never knew if that was a reality or not.

Jim Palmer Youth Jersey Mills also weighed in on the Jets, saying that Gang Green called Mayfield our guy if you’re there when New York picked at No. 3 overall. Instead, the Jets were thrilled to wind up with USC’s Sam Darnold.

As for the Patriots, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport confirmed that New England did their share of homework on Mayfield.

They did send Josh McDaniels to Austin just to go talk to Baker Mayfield, Rapoport told NFL Network. And this is kind of what the Patriots do: Make sure they’re ready for all situations. What if he fell to five, six or seven, would they make a move? They had two first-round picks, they were ready to come up. I also think Josh Rosen might have tempted them if he had gotten a little bit closer, maybe 14, 15 or 16.

I like Roquan Smith Jersey for the Oakland Raiders at No. 10.

Yes, it could go secondary, but Oakland has drafted safeties the last two years, has Reggie Nelson Ethan Pocic Womens Jersey on the back end and took cornerback Gareon Conley in the first round last year.
Men's Chase Utley Replica Royal Blue Alternate Jersey: Majestic MLB #26 Los Angeles Dodgers Cool Base
Based on film, the most glaring need is in the middle of the defense. The Raiders have talent along the defensive line and potential in the secondary. However, cleaning up the trash and covering in the middle of the field has been a problem.

Vea may carry a lot of weight on his frame, but he’s nimble and athletic. In the NFL it’s not all about size or build; it’s about results. Vea’s results speak for themselves, and he made for one of the most fun watches in my predraft process.

I don’t like the idea of drafting a 6’1 quarterback who runs a 4.84-second 40-yard dash in the top 10. This is why Oklahoma’s Baker Mayfield is still available at No. 12. I’m also not positive Mayfield’s personality will be attractive to Buffalo Bills head coach Sean McDermott, who is a strict disciplinarian, but Mayfield has the arm talent and the decision-making needed to succeed in Buffalo.

NFL insider Ed Werder reported Wednesday that Bryant turned down a multiyear offer from Baltimore because he wants a one-year contract that would put him on the open market at the start of free agency next year, allowing him to potentially cash in.

Authentic Kids Marcus Peters Jersey After signing receivers Michael Crabtree, John Brown and DeVier Posey earlier this offseason, Baltimore recently added Willie Snead after the New Orleans Saints declined to match the restricted free agent’s聽two-year, $7 million offer sheet.

Authentic Kids Nathan Beaulieu Jersey Now, Joe Flacco has help on the outside to improve a passing attack that聽ranked聽29th last season.

The three-time Pro Bowler has聽made it clear聽that his decision won’t come down to money. His No. 1 priority appears to be finding a way to聽stay in the NFC East聽so he can have two shots at the NFC East.

Bryant was scheduled to make $12.5 million in 2018. While it’s unclear if he will find a new deal for next season within that range, it appears the 29-year-old at least wants one more shot to get聽paid. Dallas did not release him until mid-April, nearly a month after the new league year began. By that point, his market was limited,聽as any team that had a need at receiver likely already filled the hole.

Rob Gronkowski Jersey will return to Patriots in 2018 season

Amid his purchase of聽a minority stake in a race horse and his聽absence from the start of voluntary workouts, tight end Rob Gronkowski gave New England Patriots fans some positive news.

On Tuesday evening, he announced on Instagram that he will return to play next season.

I met with coach today and informed him I will be back Womens Trevor Van Riemsdyk Jersey for the 2018 season with the Pats, Gronkowski wrote on Instagram. I have been working out, staying in shape and feel great. Looking forward to another championship run.

The 2018 NFL Draft is days away and there are plenty of rumors floating around ahead of Thursday’s first round. Friday it was reported Georgia running back Sony Michel could be the second ball carrier off the board. But according to The Ringer and NFL Network there are some concerns with the wear and tear on Michel’s body. There’s a lot of teams telling me there’s a medical concern here, so he could slip a little bit, said The Ringer’s Mike Lombardi, formally an NFL executive. His medical grade is a little iffy. Michel split time in a backfield with Nick Chubb at Georgia, amassing 3,613 yards and 33 touchdowns in four seasons. He hurt his knee in the SEC championship this past season but was able to play in the College Football Playoff. He’s suffered previous ankle injuries, a fractured forearm in 2016 and reconstructive knee surgery in high school, according to NFL Network. Despite the injuries, Michel missed just two games over the past three seasons.

Kids Seth Joyner Jersey The always plugged-in Kimberley Jones of NFL Network reported this live from Giants headquarters on Wednesday.

Heck, maybe Barkley himself actually tipped this pick last week.

The Giants have already shown public interest in Barkley, but given the fact that Eli Manning is nearing the age of 40 the team also needs to think about the future at this key position.

Here is a partial list of Colbert picks from Rounds 2-7 and undrafted finds who have developed into Pro Bowlers: running back Le’Veon Bell (second round, 2013); receiver Antonio Brown (sixth round, 2010); linebacker LaMarr Woodley (second round, 2007); receiver Mike Wallace (third round, 2009); defensive end Brett Keisel (seventh round, 2002); linebacker James Harrison (undrafted, 2002); running back Willie Parker (undrafted, 2004).

NFL Draft 2018: Walk-up music for each prospect

The 2018 NFL Draft begins tonight with the first round, and it’s a moment every player in attendance will remember. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime moment, and you want it to be as great as possible, which is why players get to choose the music they walk-up to while headed to the podium.

Drake is the big winner here, as he has been in most of the recent drafts. He makes five different players’ songs, and we’ll get hear “God’s Plan” twice. It’s hard to fault Derrius Guice or Roquan Smith for going with “God’s Plan” because 1) it’s a banger and 2) the message of the song is perfect for this moment.

Royals: The swelling in the right foot of RHP Ian Kennedy was down after he took a liner off it in the series opener. Kennedy left after the third inning Tuesday night but could make his next start Sunday.

Kansas City plays the White Sox five times in the next four days, including a day-night doubleheader on Saturday. RHP Jakob Junis will start the series opener Thursday night.

Milwaukee RHP Chase Anderson will take the mound Thursday night against the Cubs in Chicago. After four games there, the Brewers will conclude a nine-game trip with three in Cincinnati.

“Amazon was a tremendous partner for ‘Thursday Night Football’ in 2017 and as we continue our mission of delivering NFL games to fans whether they watch on television or on digital platforms, we are excited to work with them again for the next two seasons,” Brian Rolapp, chief media and business officer for the NFL, said in a statement.

CBS Sports notes Amazon will be streaming a total of 11 games in 2018 beginning with the Vikings at Rams in Week 4. It’s not part of the deal for Amazon to stream on Thanksgiving.

Ryon Healy, activated from the disabled list after missing 16 games with a sprained right ankle, singled in the third as Seattle took a 3-0 lead in a seven-pitch span with two outs. Healy scored on Dee Gordon’s triple, and Segura had an RBI double and came home on Cano’s single.

Zunino had an RBI single in the fourth. Cano appeared to hit a two-out homer in the fifth, but his drive was to left was ruled a double after a crew chief video review.

Tigers: 3B Jeimer Candelario returned to the starting lineup Friday after dealing with soreness in his left wrist.

Orioles: 2B Jonathan Schoop (oblique strain) will play in an extended spring training game Wednesday in Sarasota, Florida, and then join Double-A Bowie by Friday for a rehab assignment.

Limited Mens James Reimer Jersey Tigers: Francisco Liriano (2-3, 3.13 ERA) fell short in a bid for his second career no-hitter Sunday against Kansas City when Whit Merrifield led off the sixth with a solo home run.

Orioles: Andrew Cashner (1-3, 3.60 ERA) is looking to snap a two-game skid. He has allowed just 3 hits in 28 at-bats with runners in scoring position.

Really? If a batter 鈥?any batter 鈥?is unprepared Fred Biletnikoff Womens Jersey to swing on a 2-2 pitch, when would he otherwise be prepared? Judge strikes out a lot and he was caught looking at strike three. That plain. He wasn’t trying to work a walk, so why walk us down Candyland Alley?

Also on Wednesday, Giancarlo Stanton hit a ball high off the wall in center, a ball that then ricocheted away from the nearest outfielder, Jackie Bradley, then was dropped by the cut-off man.

What Landry primarily does is catch short passes, and a lot of them. Last season led the NFL with 112 catches, but he averaged just 8.8 yards per catch, and his total of 987 receiving yards was 17th in the NFL.

Authentic Womens Carmelo Anthony Jersey The reason the Browns might draft Allen first overall is that he has the strongest arm in the draft. If you expect Allen to be your franchise quarterback for years to come, you should be spending money on receivers who will make plays deep downfield, not possession receivers like Landry.
