    pitcher will likely begin the season on the 15-day disabled list as he is not expected to be able to pitch in a game for another six weeks due to elbow inflammation, the Newark Star-Ledger reports Tuesday.

  • Rotation poker hands: AL West

    content_img

    With just two weeks until opening day (woo hoo!), most starting rotations have begun to round into shape. So we'll take six days this week to rank the rotations in each division. As if giving you the chance to kigue. The Frenchman has been unemployed since leaving Arsenal at the end of the season 2017/18 season.He said he has rejected the offers because he is "too linked" with the Gunners."I'm an Arsenal man and after that I'm a professional. I can't stop wock and scream about the rankings wasn't enough fun, we're going to add in a wrinkle. Each team will be assigned a poker hand.

    That is, there are five cards in a poker hand and five pitchers in a rotation, so let's assign a hand that each team has been dealt. It's more subjective than scientific and designed for entertainment purposes. The good news is that if you think the idea is stupid, you can still pay attention to how we've ranked the rotations and ignore the poker hands.

    Please note we are assigning a hand per rotation and it's a judgment of the rotation as a group -- not assigning a specific card to each pitcher. While we might note someone is an "ace" for convenience sake, we aren't necessarily saying that, for example, A.J. Griffin is a four of spades.

    Let's dive in.

    Rotation: , , , , ( also possible)

    The A's had a sneaky-good rotation last season, ranking third in the American League in starting pitcher ERA and riding that staff to an AL West championship. This time around, the A's have the potential to be even better because it's possible the likes of Parker, Milone and Griffin will improve in their sophomore seasons. Also, Anderson missed most of last season, and he will make a fine anchor for this young group -- if he can stay healthy, which is always a big question with him. There's always the chance the youngsters will regress a bit as ade Barry.Villa have completed the £1million signing of Barcelona youngster Louie Barry.Barry came through the ranks at West Brom before being snapped up by the Catalan giants in 2019.Six months later the 16-year-old has returned to Birmingham to joinjustments are made, but overall the potential is big.

    Hand they've been dealt

    Three of a kind is pretty good, especially with 10s. This isn't close to the best hand that you can get, but odds are you'll have a winner a good amount of the time that you have these cards.

    Rotation: , , , ,

    The Rangers had a mediocre rotation last season, but Darvish will take a big step forward during his second year in America. Once his adjustment to a new country was finally complete, the 6-foot-5 righthander went 5-1 with a 2.35 ERA and 67 strikeouts in his last eight starts (57 1/3 innings). Expect Holland to work his ERA back to around 4.00 again, too, a major improvement on his 4.67 mark last season. Also, Ogando has proven a quality starter in his career, going 13-8 with a 3.49 ERA and 1.12 WHIP. And don't forget that will probably return from Tommy John surgery midseason to knock out Lowe (or whoever else might occupy that five slot).

    Hand they've been dealt

    It's three of a kind, albeit not as good as Oakland's hand. Still, three eights with a king kicker is none too shabby and would win a decent amount of deals.

    Rotation: , , , ,

    The Angels managed to have a good rotation last season, despite mediocrity from Wilson, a down year from Dan Haren and a horrible season from Ervin Santana. They did lose Zack Greinke -- who made 13 starts for the Angels -- but retained ace Jered Weaver. Wilson needs to improve and Hanson ipzig coach Ralf Rangnick.Now a technical director for Red Bull, Rangnick is in contact with United about taking a similar role at Old Trafford.United are attracted to taking on the German thanks to his work with Leipzig, where he uncovered the likesneeds to stay healthy, in which case they make for a good 2-3 combo. Vargas was great at Safeco Field last year and awful on the road, but Angel Stadium is a pitcher's park, too. In his career, Vargas is 3-1 with a 2.27 ERA in 43 2/3 innings in his new home stadium. And Blanton can eat 190 not-good-but-not-terrible innings as the five.

    Hand they've been dealt

    Two pair with an ace kicker. It's not bad at all and gives you a chance at winning, but you'll probably need help in terms of other players dropping better hands due to a bluff or everyone else having a pair or worse. In baseball terms for the Angels, the help will be the offense.

    Rotation: , , , ,

    We know all about the ace at the front here. He's elite. After Hernandez, though, we see a lot of question marks and limited upside. What's worse is that Seattle's home-field advantage for pitchers (the staff had a 2.97 home ERA and 4.59 road ERA last season) is mitigated a bit by the Safeco Field fences being moved in -- not to mention the defense has worsened. We don't know if the impact will be severe, but those splits should move closer to even, and that means getting worse at home before it means improving on the road.

    Hand they've been dealt

    Well, there's the ace of spades. The best card in the deck. That's King Felix for you. As for the rest of the hand, we can't make much of it. While it might not be awful, the upside is limited. It's possible in a few years that King Felix will get some company from the likes of Danny Hultzen, James Paxton and Taijuan Walker, maybe even getting them up into flush or full house range (or more?). For now, it's Felix and a bunch of stray cards.

    Rotation: , , , ,

    Norris was 7-13 with a 4.65 ERA and 1.37 WHIP last season, and he sits atop the rotation. Harrell (11-11, 3.76) actually wasn't bad, but Lyles (5-12, 5.09) was. And now the Astros are moving to a tougher division in an overall tougher league for pitchers. It's hard to believe in much upside from Humber or in the full-season health of Bedard, either. Ugly is the word.

    Hand they've been dealt

    It can only get better from here. That's unsuited and one card away from a low straight. But, essentially, it's nothing. It's a seven high and, in many cases, the worst possible hand that one could have. The good news is the Astros had already decided to fold before the hand was dealt. They have no illusions of competing this season and are instead still building the foundation.

  • Arizona owner Kendrick: ‘High likelihood’ OF Justin Upton stays with D-Backs

    content_img

    has a 90 percent chance of being with the Diamondbacks when spring training starts as things stand now, one Diamondbacks person estimated.

    Even so, the D-Backs are still open to listening to a deal for the multi-talented outfielder. So that percentage could change as the winter goes on.

    While not putting a precise number of Upton's chances to stay a D-Back, club owner Ken Kendrick told CBSSports.com, "I think there's a very high likelihood Justin will be in our starting outfield when we start the new season."

    The immediate chance to trade Upton -- who hit .280 with 17 home runs, 107 runs scored and 67 RBI in 2012 -- took a hit when the told at the general manager meetings that they wouldn't part with either top shortstop prospect or fine young shortstop in an Upton trade. GM Kevin Towers seeks a young shortstop and pitcher back in any potentiain the dressing room for over 40 minutes after their 2-0 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur.The result put Liverpool to within six wins of their first League Championship in 30 years.City have accumulated the two highest points totals (100 and 98) in Englisl Upton deal.

    There was talk Tampa Bay was involved in talks, too, but it's a little hardKarim Benzema has broken a major goalscoring record.Benzema is now the highest goalscoring Frenchman for one club.As Menes explained on Yahoo Sports: "There was an event that was a little unnoticed, that is, when Karim Benzema scored against Leganes,er to see the match there, as the don't have a young big-league-ready shortstop to trade and couldn't as easily absorb the $38 million to go on Upton's deal over the next three seasons.

    Despite the seeming break in the trade action, Towers will listen if anyone comes to him with a realistic offer. Towers is one of the game's more prolific traders. But so far he hasn't heard what he wants to hear.

    "Kevin is Kevin. I think there is no one on the roster Kevin wouldn't haute to his players after they secured LaLiga safety.Victory over Rayo Vallecano saw Valladolid safe for another year.The Brazilian superstar won two Ballon d'Or prizes and one European Golden Shoe over the course of his career, as well as two World Cve a discussion about, if asked,'' Kendrick said in explanation for why such a fine young player such as Upton seems to be on the trading block so much.

    Towers has the keen ability to charm players, and so far, Upton, the discussion of trade talks a couple times before, hasn't given any public indication yet that he's wearying of all the rumors and discussion. But it is believed he is open to a trade perhaps even to a team on his no-trade list.

    The list, which has been changed after each season, has been rejiggered to include and sources say, a seemingly smart move in this winter where the Blue Jays are stealing the show.If they had early interest, they have since traded their top young shortstop .

    Towers has said a reason Upton has hit the trade market is the team's outfield depth, even after the trade of to . Upton has made two All-Star teams and received MVP votes twice but some rivals suspect the team was hoping for even more, either in terms of production or fan popularity (one rival said that despite Upton's fine production and nice-guy image, it is his impression the D-Backs do hope for a greater connection with the fans).

    "I'm a big Justin fan,'' Kendrick said. "He was drafted 1-1, and the fan expectation was so extraordinary. I think the fan base has seen flashes of an extraordinary talent. Justin's still young. All of us as young people aren't as consistent with what we do until we become a little more mature. Justin suffers from very high expectations. But he's had extraordinary success. And I think he has a lot more to contribute.''

    Upton is still only 25, and it's clear Kendrick has done some research to try to understand what's realistic. Kendrick said he hesitated to invoke the name of an all-time great as a comp, but he did.

    "When compared to Bonds at the same age,'' Kendrick said, meaning Barry. "[Upton's] numbers are superior at the same age.''

    Kendrick pointed out, "Even  before the allegations, Bonds was an extraordinary player.''

    But while Upton has no knocks against him, his early production and pristine rep hasn't yet translated into wild fan zeal. But, as Kendrick pointed out, "He's a hard worker, a good person with a good family.''

    Some wonder whether the Diamondbacks of their fans want their best player to exude a little more grit, to be more like his manager Kirk Gibson. "It's ironic, Gibby sees a whole lot of himself in Justin,'' Kendrick said. "Gibby's reputation wasn't always what it became.''

    Kendrick sees "potential superstar'' when he sees Upton. The question is whether it will come in Arizona, or elsewhere.

  • Grading Tuesday’s LDS action: Pitching for survival

    The runs were hard to come by on Tuesday night, and that ultimately benefitted the two teams with no room for error.

    : The and A's each entered play on Tuesday on the brink of elimination via the sweep. They each survived largely bizio Sarri has offered a shopping list to Juventus during talks over his Turin move, it has been revealed.Tuttosport says Sarri's plans for Juventus include building the team around Daniele Rugani, Miralem Pjanic, Federico Bernardeschi and Gonzalo Hiecause of their pitching staffs. Consider the combined Tuesday numbers of San Fran and hurlers: 19.0 IP, 1 R, 8 H, 18 K, 6 BB. To put a finer point on it, the worst performance by a Bay Area pitcher on Tuesday was that of , who had an ERA of 1.80 for the game. Pitching like that is how you survive an elimination game. : It was Pence's clutch single off in the 10th that put the go-ahead run in scoring position. What makes his base knock even more impressive is that he did it on a bum leg. Indeed, Pence's hobbled gait down to first base proved how much pain he was in. Also credit Pence for an excellent sliding grab earlier in the game.: Baker's first curious decision of the night -- to pull a dominant after just 88 pitches in favor of a pinch-hitter -- didn't haunt, as the game went 10 innings (and thus longer than Bailey would've pitched under any circumstances). But what about Baker's decision to pull closer after only one inning and just 15 pitches? The following inning, Jonathan Broxton, who, it goes without saying, is not the pitcher Chapman is, allowed the evenn president Silvio Berlusconi has hit out at plans for a new San Siro.Milan and Inter Milan have submitted joint-plans for a new, 60,000-seated stadium to replace San Siro, but Monza owner Berlusconi is appalled at the idea.“I'm absolutely against tual winning run to score.

  • Phillies: Could third base be in Chase Utley’s future?

    content_img

    Phillies second baseman Wedneremier League referee Mark Halsey believes Manchester United were fortunate in their 1-1 draw with Liverpool.The Red Devils opened the scoring through Marcus Rashford, after an excellent cross from Daniel James.But the goal could have been been ruledsday afternoon, exploring the option of a move for Paul Pogba.The Daily Star says United are willing to sell Pogba for around £140m.And United want most of that fee paid up front. Real Madrid and Juventus have been linked with Pogba.Yesterday Mino Raiola confirmed he was working on a deal for Poto third base for the future, Jim Salisbury of Comcast Sports reported.

    Utley has never played the position in the major leagues but played 123 games at third base for Triple-A Scranton-Wilkes Barre in 2002, making 28 errors and posting an atrocious .918 fielding percentage. Although errors and fielding percentage are at times only tangentially related to actual fielding ability, no major league third baseman with at least 500 innings this year has a mark below .923, and the worst three -- Wilson Betemit (.923), (.929) and (.938) are generally considered poor (or worse) at the position.

    However, Utley has shown himself to be one of the league's better second basemen according to most advanced fielding metrics. If he could handle the transition, the more reflex-heavy third base could be easier on his perennially injured knees than the range-heavy second base.
