Trouble in the Reds outfield, the Blue Jays rotation could have a new look, an interesting catcher option in Colorado and injuries to Davis, Kipnis, Cain and more. Authentic Joe Montana Jersey . INJURIES - Reds RF Jay Bruce is facing knee surgery for a torn meniscus and it could cost him a month of playing time. Chris Heisey, who has shown some pop (43 home runs, .736 OPS in 1218 career plate appearances) takes over in right for the Reds. - The Reds are also missing LHP Tony Cingrani, who has shoulder tendinitis, but Cincinnati can get away with a four-man rotation for the time being. - A torn tendon in his right hand leaves RHP Brandon Morrow on the 60-day DL, giving J.A. Happ a chance to return to the rotation. Happ has been rocked in three relief appearances this year, so it may not be long before Marcus Stroman gets his turn. Stroman, a 2012 first-round pick, has been recalled from Triple-A Buffalo, where he was 2-2 with a 1.69 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 36 strikeouts in 26 2/3 innings. Stroman starts in the bullpen but figures to be next in line for a rotation opening. - With 1B Chris Davis on the DL due to a strained oblique, Steve Pearce is getting regular playing time for the Orioles. Pearce has done little (.222 AVG, .556 OPS) in 27 plate appearances this year, but since joining the Orioles in 2012, he has seven home runs, 29 RBI, a .253 average and .748 OPS in 248 plate appearances. - A strained hamstring has put White Sox CF Adam Eaton on the DL, giving Jordan Danks a shot at some regular playign time. In 300 career plate appearances, Danks is hitting .207 with a .606 OPS and a dozen stolen bases, so he hasnt clicked in the bigs yet, but had a respectable .772 OPS in four seasons (1566 plate appearances) at Triple-A. - Indians 2B Jason Kipnis is out with a strained oblique, and the Tribe has turned to 21-year-old Jose Ramirez. Ramirez doesnt have any power to speak of, but hit .308 with a .765 OPS and 75 stolen bases, in 1172 minor-league plate appearances. - Need a catcher? While Rockies C Wilin Rosario deals with a viral infection, consider Jordan Pacheco, who is the primary backup in Colorado. Pacheco had played primarily first and third base with the rockies, but, prior to this season, had seen action at catcher in 22 of 213 career games. This year, Pacheco has caught in 10 games, and is hitting .278 with a .769 OPS. He hasnt hit enough to have value as a corner infielder, but as a catcher? Thats a different story. - Tigers RHP Anibal Sanchez is on the DL due to a laceration on his finger, giving LHP Robbie Ray (3-2, 1.53 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, 21 K, 29 1/3 IP at Triple-A) a turn in the Detroit rotation. Ray was acquired from Washington as part of the Doug Fister trade in the offseason. - A run-in with a kitchen knife has sent Giants RHP Matt Cain to the DL, opening up a spot in the rotation for Yusmerio Petit, the 29-year-old who has a 3.31 ERA in 73 1/3 innings with the Giants since 2012. - Angels 3B David Freese suffered a broken finger on the weekend, leaving the hot corner in the hands of Ian Stewart, the one-time top prospect who has power (hit 25 HR in 2009), but is hitting .186 with seven home runs in 396 plate appearances since the start of 2011. - Twins RHP Mike Pelfrey is sidelined with a groin problem, giving Samuel Deduno a chance to return to the starting rotation. Dedunos strikeout rate has improved, working out of the bullpen this year, though hes also giving up more base-runners than he did last season, when he was 8-8 with a 3.83 ERA and 1.35 WHIP in 18 starts for the Twins. GOOD ADDS (Available in at least 40% of TSN leagues) Jhonny Peralta, SS, St. Louis - 7 HR, 15 RBI, .222 AVG, 13 R, 108 AB (Available: 48.6%) Omar Infante, 2B, Kansas City - 2 HR, 19 RBI, .282 AVG, 13 R, 110 AB (Available: 49.5%) Todd Frazier, 3B, Cincinnati - 5 HR, 18 RBI, .269 AVG, 17 R, 3 SB, 97 AB (Available: 40.6%) Chris Young, CF, N.Y. Mets - 2 HR, 9 RBI, .273 AVG, 10 R, 3 SB, 55 AB (Available: 95.8%) Juan Francisco, 1B, 3B, Toronto - 3 HR, 6 RBI, .277 AVG, 8 R, 47 AB (Available: 98.7%) Corey Kluber, RHP, Cleveland - 2-3, 3.60 ERA, 1.36 WHIP, 48 K, 45 IP (Available: 82.4%) Travis Wood, LHP, Chicago Cubs - 2-3, 3.35 ERA, 1.25 WHIP, 37 K, 37 2/3 IP (Available: 86.1%) Jonathon Niese, LHP, N.Y. Mets - 2-2, 2.20 ERA, 1.04 WHIP, 24 K, 32 2/3 IP (Available: 77.0%) CLOSER NOTES - Sergio Santos has lost the Blue Jays closer gig after blowing back-to-back save appearances. Aaron Loup is the short-term option there, while Casey Janssen is due back from injury soon. - After being removed from the closers role, Angels RHP Ernesto Frieri may be about to reclaim the job from sidearmer Joe Smith. Frieri ha worked four perfect relief outings since he was bumped from the job. - The lonely Houston Astros closer job is being split, by Anthony Bass and Chad Qualls. As if one couldnt handle all those opportunities. - Oaklands Jim Johnson has pitched 10 1/3 IP since he was knocked out of the closers job, but that stretch has put him at the head of the committee which includes Luke Gregerson and Sean Doolittle.

"What do they think theyll get out of Marte," he asked. In words, maybe not much. At the plate, enough to keep Pittsburgh in the hunt for a second straight playoff spot.

With long-term injuries to Braydon Coburn and Andrew MacDonald, and call-ups from Lehigh Valley a stop-gap measure, team general manager Ron Hextall sprang for some experience on the blue line.TORONTO – Randy Carlyle knew the challenge wouldnt work itself out over night. After his home debut on Tuesday night, its clear the new head coach will have plenty of work to do. The Leafs allowed four goals against in a muddy second period, dropping a 5-4 decision to the Bruins at the ACC, their fifth loss in five meetings with Boston this season. A concern and top priority since his takeover from Ron Wilson just days earlier, team defence struck a chord for Carlyle in the loss, which also saw Joffrey Lupul and Colby Armstrong depart with injuries. “Weve got enough goals to win the hockey game,” Carlyle said simply. “Its the defensive aspect that needs to be improved upon.” Lost puck battles in front of the net and in the corners, missed assignments in dangerous scoring areas and a slew of leaks defensively in the middle frame ultimately cost the Leafs their sixth consecutive loss at home. The same troubles which plagued the hockey club in its final weeks under Wilson emerged in Carlyles second game behind the bench. Tuesday marked the 10th time in the last 12 games that the Leafs have yielded three or more against, a definite recipe for failure with postseason aspirations slipping away. “I think we deteriorated in some defensive situations where we were there, but we werent strong enough on the puck,” Carlyle said. “If you look where the goals were scored from, those werent tough enough areas from a defending standpoint from our hockey club.” “We scored enough goals to win the game,” Dion Phaneuf stated, echoing the words of Carlyle. “Weve just got to tighten up in our end.” With the loss the Leafs remain entrenched in 12th in the Eastern Conference – with a date in Pittsburgh on Wednesday night – five points behind the Jets with three teams standing in the way. “Its frustrating when you score four goals and you lose a hockey game,” Carlyle concluded. “Thats as simple as I can put it.” Five Points 1. Potentially worrisome in the loss were injuries to Armstrong and Lupul, the latter presenting a real source of trouble if significant. Armstrong departed following a fight with Dennis Seidenberg in the second during which the Bruins defenceman managed to land at least one good shot to the nose, bloodying the Leafs oft-injured winger. The 29-year-old Armstrong is just over a month returned from a concussion which sidelined him for 18 games, not to mention the 23 games missed prior to that because of a right ankle sprain. Lupul meanwhile, took a hit from David Krejci in behind the Boston net and left favouring his right hand. Losing the 28-year-old and second leading scorer would present a major hole up front if he were to miss any length of time in the final days of the season. Neither player is expected to play in Pittsburgh on Wednesday night. 2. With a pair of lengthy practices following his Leaf debut on Saturday, Carlyle is looking to implement change on the defensive front. Without divulging too much in the way of details, Cody Franson offered a glimpse into the adjustments. “I think the main basis of it is just be a little bit more patiennt and kind of protect ourselves from those danger areas that we havent necessarily been protecting that well as of late,” he told TSN. Arik Armstead Jersey. ca prior to the game. “We went into that skid and there was always something that bit us. It was a little bit different each game, but the one common thing was we werent protecting our own house well enough. We werent protecting our slot area that well. We were kind of cheating with things. Were going to try to be a little smarter in that area.” 3. Carlyle lamented the one-on-one battles his team lost to the defending Stanley Cup champions. “Winning your fair share of one-on-one battles is a skill-set and it has to be developed with this hockey club,” he said. “Expectations are that weve got to win more of our 50/50 battles or the one-on-one battles for the puck.” “Youve got to read the play and try to be first to the puck,” Carl Gunnarsson noted. “We know we can do it. We did it for 40 minutes – first and third period – its just a matter of doing it for 60. We know how to do it. Its just a matter of executing.” Having coached the likes of Scott Niedermayer and Chris Pronger in Anaheim, Carlyle explained why skill is involved in coming up with pucks in one-on-one situations. “Theres a skill-set thats involved with it,” he said. “If you look at the great players in the game they have a good stick. Some players dont have to use their body. Like a Nik Lidstrom and Scott Niedermayer, Pronger, the elite-level defencemen that have played the game for a number of years had the ability to strip people of the puck with their stick. Thats a select group. Other guys that played numbers of years ago had to use their body, get inside on people, use their skill-set that way.” 4. Mikhail Grabovski added his 21st goal of the year in defeat, hours after a five-year contract extension worth $27.5 million was announced. “For sure, its nice feeling,” he said before the game. “When you protect your life in five years, right now you can concentrate on hockey. For sure inside you feel much better than [if] you dont have contract.” The 28-year-old had no interest in leaving Toronto, happy with partner Kate and their two childen. Grabovski made a quick impression on Carlyle with a three-point performance in Montreal three days prior. “Players like Grabovski demonstrate the will and the compete thats going to be required for this hockey club to continue to have success,” he said. 5. Typically one of the final players to exit the ice after practice, teammates offered one common thought on Grabovski. “His biggest attribute is his work ethic I think,” Franson said. “Hes always out there working on certain areas that hes feeling needs a little bit more work I guess. Its guys like that are always pushing to be that much better that stay playing at a high level. Hes not really letting himself get comfortable. Its what you want to see in a guy like that…Ive played with some skill guys, but not skill guys that stay out for an hour after practice like that. Hes pretty unique like that.” Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China ' ' '
