Best Authentic Houston Astros Baseball Jerseys Online Wholesale

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — No matter what, Yuli Gurriel will not be with the Houston Astros on Opening Day. But the first baseman might not be on the disabled list, either.

After several days of soft-toss batting practice sessions, Gurriel was scheduled to swing against a pitching machine on Sunday.

“These next two days of hitting off the high-velocity machine will be a big test for him because that’s where the resistance will increase and so will his speed,” Houston manager A.J. Hinch said.

The 33-year-old Gurriel underwent surgery to remove the hook of the hamate bone in his left hand on Feb 28.

Gurriel will remain in West Palm Beach when the rest of his Astros teammates break camp on Sunday. If he continues to progress, he could see time in minor league games in the coming days before rejoining the major league club.

“It’s the decision of the front office, but I feel pretty good, and the doctors have said my recuperation is going better than expected,” Gurriel said.

The World Series champion Astros open the season Thursday at Texas.

A .299 hitter who drove in 75 runs last season during his first full year in the majors, Gurriel’s 2018 would have started later than his teammates’ regardless of the injury. Major League Baseball suspended Gurriel for the first five games of this season for his inappropriate gesture directed at Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Yu Darvish during the World Series.

Gurriel’s surgery was the only real hiccup in a relatively quiet spring in which Houston went 19-9.

“We didn’t have a perfect camp, but we did have a healthy camp,” Hinch said.

The Astros didn’t appear to lose any momentum in camp.

“We take a lot of pride in the way we play,” shortstop Carlos Correa said. “When we go out there, we try to win. It doesn’t matter if it’s a spring training game or a regular-season game. We go out there and try to perform to the best of our abilities, and the outcome of that is going to be winning ballgames.”

Houston doesn’t have to officially announce its major league roster until Thursday, but the Astros effectively did so over the weekend by optioning Tony Kemp and Tyler White to the minor leagues and telling J.D. Davis that he will be a member of the Opening Day roster.

“I was close to tearing up over it,” Davis said.

After electing to keep Max Stassi with the major league club, Houston will roster three catchers, but Evan Gattis is expected to serve primarily as Houston’s designated hitter.

“I think when you add the guys we added with the guys we’re bringing back and the experience we all gained from last year, we feel as a team we got better,” catcher Brian McCann said.

Cheap Stitched MLB Rockies Jerseys Flexbase Online Sale 2018

This offseason featured many pickups for the Rockies. Especially in the bullpen, as they netted both Bryan Shaw and Wade Davis, two big time players. Now, people are saying (and rightly so), that this bullpen could be one of the best in the league. But, the best piece to this bullpen could be a guy that everyone is forgetting about, and that is Chris Rusin.

Rusin, at age 31, can do just about everything that a bullpen could need from a reliever. He can get a save if necessary, and he has shown that he can enter the ballgame for any situation, and give his team a chance to win. Not to mention his stats were great last season, as he produced a 2.65 ERA and 71 strikeouts in 85 innings. With a bullpen that looks very strong, they will need that glue guy who is going to piece games together in those bridge innings, and Rusin has shown his capability for this in countless occasions.

Not to forget that he can go for long periods, as he used to be a starter not more than two years ago. He has also caused some deception with hitters due to his varied leg-lifts on his pitches.

He may not be the flashy name, or have the flashy reliever jobs, but he will still be one of the keys to this new and improved bullpen.

Final Thoughts

Overall, the Rockies may have transformed themselves into a team that is not going to solely rely on scoring runs this year. This bullpen has a chance to do great things this season, and although he might not be the biggest name, Chris Rusin will definitely have a vital role in it.

If he can continue the success that he had from last season, teams will have no wiggle room when facing this Rockies bullpen.

Cheap Throwback Baseball Cleveland Indians Jerseys Custom Online

The Philadelphia Phillies have agreed to a three-year, $60 million deal with free agent first baseman Carlos Santana, according to multiple reports.

The deal was first reported Friday by FanRag Sports.

Carlos Santana signing a significant step in Phillies’ rebuild
They’re still a long way from contention, but the Phils improved without overpaying — leaving them in play for both Harper and Machado next winter.

Phillies trade starting SS Galvis to Padres
The Philadelphia Phillies have traded shortstop Freddy Galvis to the San Diego Padres, the team announced on Friday.
Santana became the first to reach a deal among the nine free agents who last month rejected $17.4 million qualifying offers from their former teams.

Santana has played his entire big league career with the Cleveland Indians, who acquired him in a 2009 trade from the Los Angeles Dodgers. The 31-year-old Santana has developed into a consistent run producer, and after catching and playing third base, he has become one of the league’s best fielding first basemen. He was a Gold Glove finalist this year.

The switch-hitting Santana batted .259 with 23 homers and 79 RBIs last season for the AL Central champion Indians. He has a career .249 average with 174 home runs in eight seasons for Cleveland.

Santana will join a rebuilding Phillies lineup that also includes slugger Rhys Hoskins, outfielders Aaron Altherr, Nick Williams and Odubel Herrera, and third baseman Maikel Franco.

Nearly 150 of Santana’s 571 at-bats last season came in the leadoff spot, and with a career on-base percentage of .365, he can help provide RBI opportunities for Philadelphia’s other top hitters in the middle of the order.

Santana’s departure is a big loss for Cleveland, which led the AL with 102 wins during the regular season but lost to the New York Yankees in a Division Series.

Santana has a .213 average with four homers and eight RBI in 21 career postseason games.

The addition of Santana would be the second major deal completed Friday by the Phillies, who also traded shortstop Freddy Galvis to the San Diego Padres in a move that likely opens the shortstop job for top prospect J.P. Crawford.

Sale MLB Cheap Miguel Sano Jerseys From China

Just a few hours remain to cast your vote on the Esurance MLB All-Star Game ballot, where several of the game’s best players are holding on to narrow leads in positional races bound to go down to the wire.

Voting ends tonight at 11:59 ET. The starting players and rosters will be revealed on Sunday at 7 p.m. ET on ESPN. The 88th All-Sar Game is set for Marlins Park in Miami on July 11.
But who will be there in the starting lineups? That’s still up to you, the fans. And at this late hour, several of the races are too close to call.
• Vote now for #ASGWorthy players
The tightest race is at third base in the American League, where just 60,000 votes separate front-runner Miguel Sano of the Twins from Jose Ramirez of the Indians and the Blue Jays’ Josh Donaldson, who are fighting furiously behind. Sano, who is having a breakout season thanks to his elite average exit velocity, leads the way with 1,764,734 votes, but Cleveland fan favorite Ramirez (1,730,869) and former AL MVP Donaldson (1,671,408) are knocking at the door.
The other three-horse race in the AL is at designated hitter, where Corey Dickerson of the Rays has used a final-week surge to overtake Nelson Cruz of the Mariners for the top spot. Dickerson (1,616,809) is having a breakout year for the Rays, but four-time All-Star Cruz (1,557,747) and his 14 home runs are nothing to scoff at. Cleveland slugger Edwin Encarnacion (1,505,226) is also within striking distance.
• Interactive map: Where are the votes coming from?
In the National League, Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado has surged past reigning NL MVP Kris Bryant of the Cubs to set himself up to start his first All-Star Game. Arenado (2,426,431) trailed Bryant (2,322,249) as late as Monday, but now owns a 104,182-vote lead over Bryant.
Elsewhere, Nationals first baseman Ryan Zimmerman (1,989,104) maintains a narrow lead over the Cubs’ Anthony Rizzo (1,915,790), while Reds shortstop Zack Cozart’s first All-Star start remains in reach. Cincinnati’s shortstop is having a career year, and with a little help from donkey-costume-wearing teammate Joey Votto, fans are noticing. Cozart owns a 108,282-vote lead over Corey Seager of the Dodgers.

Cheap Authentic MLB Didi Gregorius Jerseys

NEW YORK — Didi Gregorius and Matt Holliday homered, Austin Romine collected three hits and the Yankees snapped their seven-game skid with an 8-4 victory over the Angels on Wednesday evening at Yankee Stadium.

Gregorius put New York on the board in the second inning with a two-run homer, and Holliday helped the Yankees reclaim the lead they had lost, drilling a solo homer in the fifth off Ricky Nolasco, who was charged with five runs and seven hits in 5 1/3 innings.
Full Game Coverage
Romine greeted Mike Morin with a two-run double in the sixth, runs charged to Nolasco, whose team has lost 12 of his 15 starts this year. Aaron Hicks, Starlin Castro and Chase Headley later added RBI singles to pad the Yankees’ cushion.

Yankees starter Jordan Montgomery picked up his third victory in four starts, limiting the Angels to Martin Maldonado’s two-run homer over 5 2/3 innings. The rookie left-hander scattered five hits and two walks, striking out five in a 97-pitch effort. Maldonado added a second homer in the ninth off Tyler Clippard.

In his second appearance since spending time on the disabled list with left rotator cuff inflammation, Yankees closer Aroldis Chapman sealed the win emphatically, striking out Eric Young Jr. swinging on a 102.9-mph pitch that was the fastest in the Majors this season, according to Statcast™.
MOMENTS THAT MATTERED
Yes In-Didi: Gregorius jumped on a 74.4-mph Nolasco curveball in the second inning, parking it into the right-field seats for a two-run homer that gave the Yankees their first lead of the homestand. It was Gregorius’ eighth homer of the season, though Nolasco might have a gripe with the short porch — the drive had an exit velocity of 91.5 mph and a launch angle of 36 degrees, and similarly hit balls have gone for homers just 3 percent of the time, according to Statcast™.

Austin powered: Giving catcher Gary Sanchez a half-day at designated hitter while Holliday manned first base, Romine collected career hits No. 99, 100 and 101 in the victory. The most important was his two-run double to left-center off Morin in the sixth inning, chasing Sanchez and Headley home as the Yanks pulled away. Romine owns a .359 average with runners in scoring position since the start of 2016, fifth best in the Majors over that span (minimum 60 at-bats).

SOUND SMART WITH YOUR FRIENDS
The Angels have lost each of Nolasco’s last 10 starts. They are eight games over .500 (34-26) when anybody else starts in 2017.
WHAT’S NEXT
Angels: Right-hander Jesse Chavez will start Thursday night’s series finale against the Yankees at 4:05 PT. In 10 career appearances against New York, including four starts, Chavez is 4-1 with a 2.97 ERA.
Yankees: Right-hander Luis Severino (5-2, 2.99 ERA) is undefeated in his last eight starts, a streak that he will try to extend when the Yankees complete their three-game series with the Angels on Thursday at 7:05 p.m. ET.
