Mets place Yoenis Cespedes on 10-day DL

There was a feeling Thursday night that Yoenis Cespedes may mi s some time with an injury, but no one was truly positive.Well, B.J. Upton Jersey everyone is positive now.We have placed Yoenis Cspedes on the 10-Day DL with a left hamstring strain and recalled Sean Gilmartin from Las Vegas (AAA). #Mets New York Mets (@Mets) April https://www.indiansedge.com/cleveland-indians/abraham-almonte-jersey 28, 2017This comes after the Mets lost their sixth consecutive games and 10 of their last 11. Cespedes is hitting .270 on the season but leading the team in home runs (6), walks (11) and doubles (4).

Matching Ichiro? Only Jose Altuve has a chance, and don’t count on it

In 2013, Adrian Beltre and Matt Carpenter tied for the major league lead in hits. Each had 199, making it the first time since 1990, when Willie McGee led the majors with 199 hits, that the a non-strike season saw Bruce Bochy Jersey nobody reach 200 hits.Jose Altuve had 225 hits and Michael Brantley racked up 200 in 2014, then last year Altuve had 200 and Dee Gordon led the majors with 205. This year, Altuve is leading baseball with 155 hits, putting him on pace for 226.MORE: Ranking baseball’s 50 best players All that Altuve has to do next is the same thing, every year through 2023, and he’ll match Ichiro’s most impre sive achievement.From 2001-10, Ichiro had at least 200 hits every season. He led the majors seven times, including with a record 262 hits in 2004. His average hit total during the decade-long streak was 224, and he only https://www.giantsedge.com/san-francisco-giants/brandon-belt-jersey failed to reach 210 hits in two of the seasons, 2002 and 2005.With his streak, Ichiro became the second player in major league history to reach 200 hits in 10 seasons. The other was Pete Rose, whose 10 seasons of 200-plus hits were non-consecutive Rose did it in 1965-66, 1968-70, 1973, 1975-77 and 1979.As the only player in anything resembling active pursuit of Ichiro, the challenge for Altuve is to continue to hit at an elite level for seven-plus more years, which also means staying in pretty much perfect health for seven-plus more years. Altuve’s hit pace since the Juan Marichal Jersey start of 2014 gives him 200 hits every 146 games, so even one trip to the disabled list for a pulled muscle could be the end of any thoughts of matching Ichiro, who during his 10-year run averaged 158.8 games per season.With just 15 hits to go before he reaches 1,000 for his career, still younger than Ichiro was when he arrived in the United States, there is a good chance for Altuve to match Ichiro’s accomplishment of joining the 3,000 hit club. But even having the best chance of anyone on the planet to get on Ichiro’s level for consistent excellence over a decade, it’s hard to like Altuve’s odds. That’s what separates the greats from the legends.

John Gibbons won’t return as Blue Jays manager, report says

John Gibbons’ second stint as manager of the Blue Jays will end at the conclusion of the 2018 season, Fancred Sports reported Thursday.The report said Gibbons https://www.dodgersedge.com/los-angeles-dodgers/sandy-koufax-jersey and Toronto general manager Ro s Atkins have spoken multiple times about plans for the future, and Gibbons’ departure is “99.9 percent done.”We’ll sit down after the year and see what direction we’re going to go, myself included, Gibbons told Fancred.The 56-year-old has managed the Blue Jays since 2013, leading the team to the American League Championship Series in 2015 and 2016. But Toronto (63-76 entering Thursday) is on its way to a second consecutive losing season and the front office apparently is ready for a change Andre Ethier Jersey .Gibbons previously managed the Blue Jays from 2004-08, beginning as interim manager after Carlos Tosca was fired. He has an overall record of 783-776 (.502).The report said the front office is interested in following the MLB trend toward younger managers. Relatively recent former players like Alex Cora (Red Sox), Aaron Boone (Yankees) and Gabe Kapler (Phillies) have had succe s early on https://www.dodgersedge.com/los-angeles-dodgers/hyun-jin-ryu-jersey since making the jump.

Tigers’ Brad Ausmus returns to the bench — and his legion of hecklers follows

OAKLAND, Calif. For the Tigers, Saturday marked a return to normalcy of sorts, with manager Brad https://www.brewersedges.com/milwaukee-brewers/lorenzo-cain-jersey Ausmus back in the dugout after mi sing two games for family reasons after the death of his mother and the graduation of his daughter.Unfortunately for Ausmus, the game marked a return to the normal airing of grievances that his team’s fan base has piled upon him almost since his arrival in Detroit three years ago. While much of what has ailed the Tigers this season and last can hardly be pinned entirely on Ausmus, what happened here at Oakland Alameda Coliseum in a 12-3 thrashing certainly can.MORE: All MLB managers ranked as playersIn a game in which the Tigers’ bats livened up enough to tie, 3-3, in the top of the sixth, the bottom of the sixth saw manager-induced disaster. Ausmus pulled starter Matt Boyd, who made a nice showing in his first start filling in for injured Jordan Zimmerman, and inserted reliever Warwick Saupold. Ausmus watched as Saupold allowed a single, a double, two more singles and another double. Only when A’s No. 9 hitter Jake Smolinski rocketed a sacrifice fly to right did Ausmus finally peel himself off the dugout bench and give Saupold the hook.Ausmus shrugged off the decision after the game, calling it just an off-day for the bullpen. He managed as if he were more concerned with Sunday’s game all along, hoping to keep his best bullpen arms ready for the rubber match.Once you’re trailing, Ausmus said, you don’t want to burn one of your back-end guys.But the Tigers were not trailing by so much when it was clear Saupold was not fooling the A’s, and Ausmus could have pulled him a lot quicker. To be fair, Saupold was not alone in his struggle Alex Wilson also yielded four runs, and the struggling Oakland offense was due for a breakout game. But the inaction on Saupold crystallizes the complaints that have come during Ausmus’ tenure. This dud also crystallizes the problem https://www.brewersedges.com/milwaukee-brewers/corey-knebel-jersey with the Tigers and their many identities. They’ve not settled on one, looking like a first-place team at times and an over-the-hill candidate for demolition at others.MORE: Five MLB players who could be traded before JulyBefore Saturday, the Tigers had pulled themselves from the misery of mid-May, when a 1-11 slump dropped them 8 1/2 games out of first place and had Ausmus lingering near the top of the list of candidates for first MLB manager fired. It was on May 16 that a frustrated Ausmus went on his much-viewed and awe-inspiring tirade directed at umpire Doug Eddings, in which he tore off his sweatshirt and used it to cover home plate. His Tigers rallied after that, winning nine of 11 and moving back into the thick of the four-team scrum at the top of the A.L. Central.Much has improved. In the 11 games before Saturday’s drubbing, the Tigers had hit .316 with 21 home runs and averaged5.9 runs per game. Cameron Maybin had a 10-game hitting streak (snapped Saturday), Miguel Cabrera has returned to run-producing form and even the much-maligned Justin Upton has been better, if only slightly. Ian Kinsler, Victor Martinez and Nick Castellanos, meanwhile, have been consistent at the top of the lineup.The pitching had stabilized, too, the staff combining on a 3.73 ERA and allowing just a .238 average to opposing batters. The lo s of Zimmerman is difficult, but his should not be an extended absence. Would-be ace Justin Verlander has strung together four straight good starts, and rookie Michael Fulmer is 4-1, having allowed just one run in his past 14 2/3innings.As good as the Tigers were in that stretch, they’ve https://www.brewersedges.com/milwaukee-brewers/yovani-gallardo-jersey remained a difficult team to pin down, and that’s going to keep Ausmus in a precarious position, just a losing streak away from another round of speculation about his job security. General manager Al Avila whose job may not be so safe either has backed Ausmus, and it’s unlikely that, barring a total collapse, the Tigers will give in to the whims of vocal fans who want a new manager before this season ends.But games like this one in Oakland give them plenty of ammunition.

Let’s be honest: MLB games are great for multitasking, so pace of play is just fine

Crazy thought: Baseball’s pace of play is just fine, despite what you might’ve heard.Forget about those proposals for pitch clocks, a new strike zone, eliminating the four-pitch intentional walk or even shortening games to seven innings. None of them is nece sary to improve the game, and they all mi s a key point that’s a big part of baseball’s beauty and popularity as a spectator sport:Baseball games are great for multitasking.Yes, I’m serious.FAGAN: Cubs poised for World Series returnDon’t like the down time during games? Then do other things while you watch like baseball fans havealways done. So what if games are slow?This isn’t a crisis. This is just baseball.Astute fans have long known to embrace the pace. (Hey, that could be hashtag: #EmbraceThePace.)Game’s not zipping along? Fine. Get a snack, iron a shirt, tweet, find that article you keep https://www.bravesedges.com/atlanta-braves/tyler-flowers-jersey meaning to read, check on another game, work out, do your homework, catch up on email, do your taxes, do, well, anything you want.Baseball allows it. It’smade for it. We know this. We https://www.bravesedges.com/atlanta-braves/bobby-cox-jersey ‘ve always known this. Why is this a big deal?Baseball doesn’t require exclusivity. It offers an open relationship. Taking advantage doesn’t make you an adulterousfan, just a shrewdone.And let’s be honest:Baseball isn’t always spellbinding. It’s OK to admit this, dear fans.Baseball doesn’t require our complete attention 100 percent of the time.There are plenty of stretcheswhen nothing of notehappens: A pitcher doesn’t like the ball, so he to ses it in for a new one. A batter breaks his bat, so the bat boy brings him another one. The pitcher and catcher can’t get together on signs, so they call time out to talk about it.Not to mention pitching changes, replay reviews and 14-pitch at-bats in the fourth inning that produce 10 foul balls and end with a grounder to second. Add it all up andyou’vegota lot of dead time. But. That’s. OK. If nothing else, it makes exciting plays that explode out of that dead time all the more thrilling: a standup triple, an inside-the-park home run, a diving catch.MORE: 2017 PECOTA projections love the Dodgers, still hate the RoyalsHere’s the thing: Fans don’t usually complain that games are too long, as long as they’re entertained. And baseball itself is entertaining. That’s why we like it.But baseball was never meant to be a fast-paced affair.Generally speaking, even most fans attending games, if they’re being honest, want the experience to last as long as po sible, whether a scorele s tie or a slugfest. That’s probably true for a lot of fans watching on TV, too.We definitely know that’s true of the season itself, as fans love to long for baseball when it’s not on,to wax poetic about how much they mi s it and how it warms the soul and makes life better. Tyler Flowers Jersey That’s because, for fans, any baseball is good baseball.Which is to say, baseball is always good, no matter how long it takes.The game’s deliberate pace is not a detriment, folks.It’s an a set. Embrace it.
