A smooth fit, it’s been.
NEW YORK (AP) — Traded to the Yankees after the 2014 season http://www.metsfanproshop.com/authentic-tim-tebow-jersey , Didi Gregorius had the unenviable task of following Derek Jeter as New York’s new shortstop.Gregorius homered and turned in a pair of nifty defensive plays as the Yankees defeated the Texas Rangers 7-2 on Sunday.Gregorius has been praised by his manager and teammates for his play on the field and his leadership in the clubhouse. Just like his predecessor.“Taking over for who he took over for and being able to have three 20-homer seasons in a row, it’s incredible,” winning pitcher CC Sabathia said. “If he wouldn’t have came in and did what he did the last three or four years, we’d still be talking about ‘Jeet’ and how we need leadership.”Sabathia threw six shutout innings of one-hit ball and Giancarlo Stanton homered for the fifth time in six games. New York has won six of the last seven.The postgame talk was about Gregorius’ fifth-inning gem.The 28-year-old slid to his right to cut off a grounder in the hole by Delino DeShields, rose to his feet and fired a perfect throw to first in one smooth motion, nabbing the Texas speedster by a half-step.The crowd chanted his name after the play and Gregorius smiled and tipped his cap.DeShields was activated from the seven-day concussion disabled list earlier in the day.“When I was at second base, he was like, ‘Man, sorry I took that hit,'” DeShields said. “I said, ‘Nah, bro, you do what you got to do.'”Said Sabathia: “That was one of the better plays I’ve ever seen at shortstop.”Joey Gallo had two hits for Texas, which dropped three of the four games in the series. He also reached over the left-field wall to take a home run away from Austin Romine in the eighth.Sabathia (7-4) struck out seven to win for the first time since July 4. The burly left-hander allowed just one ball out of the infield and lowered his ERA to 3.32 — the 38-year-old has not finished a season with an ERA lower than 3.38 since 2011.Stanton hit his 30th home run, giving New York a first-inning lead for the second straight day, connecting off Martin Perez (2-5). Stanton has the most home runs by any Yankees player in his first season with the team since Mark Teixeira hit 39 in 2009.The Yankees scored five times in the fifth to chase Perez. Aaron Hicks hit a two-run single and Gregorius capped the burst with his 21st homer.“A really active day for me,” Gregorius joked.The shortstop also made a slick backhanded play in the first.“Oh, man, he did it all,” New York manager Aaron Boone said.Texas scored twice in the seventh against Sonny Gray. DeShields drove in a run with an infield single.Gray ran into trouble again in the eighth, allowing the first two batters to reach, but Jonathan Holder wiggled out of the jam with a pair of strikeouts. Expected to be a key component of New York’s rotation, Gray has given up nine earned runs over his last 5 2-3 innings since being moved to the bullpen.TOP TRAINERNew York Yankees trainer Steve Donohue was awarded the National Athletic Trainer Association’s Most Distinguished Athletic Award. Now in his 40th consecutive season in the organization, and seventh as the team’s head athletic trainer, Donohue became part of a viral video earlier in the week when he was captured on film removing a moth from umpire Bruce Dreckman’s left ear.TRAINER’S ROOMYankees: Stanton continues to be limited by a sore left hamstring that keeps him in a designated hitter role. Boone commented that Stanton’s ability to play the field is examined daily. . OF Clint Frazier (post-concussion migraines) was able to hit in the batting cage Saturday Nolan Ryan Jersey , but continues to experience symptoms.Rangers: OF Nomar Mazara (right thumb sprain) was again limited to designated hitter duties with Triple-A Round Rock on Saturday.UP NEXTYankees: RHP Luis Severino (15-5, 3.11 ERA) pitches for the Yankees against Mets ace RHP Jacob deGrom (6-7, 1.77 ERA) Monday to close out the Subway Series on what was originally an off-day for both teams. The game was scheduled for July 22, but was postponed because of heavy rain. Severino’s 15 wins lead the AL. DeGrom continues to lead the majors in ERA and is coming off his first victory since June 18.Rangers: RHP Bartolo Colon (6-10, 5.18) pitches against RHP Zack Greinke (12-7, 2.89 ERA) as Texas opens a two-game interleague matchup with Arizona. Colon allowed four runs over seven innings to defeat Seattle on Aug. 7, passing Dennis Martinez to become the career leader for most wins in MLB by a pitcher from Latin America. A quick look at what we’ve learned so far."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Houston Astros NewsGame ThreadsHouston Astros Minor LeaguesAstros Game DayPodcastsSpring Training Week One in ReviewNew,38commentsA quick look at what we’ve learned so far.CSTShareTweetShareShareSpring Training Week One in ReviewJasen Vinlove-USA TODAY SportsYes, it’s only Spring Training. I’m not even going to look up what the Astros Spring Training record is this week. It doesn’t matter. And most of the statistics don’t matter either, but could be of interest for some of the marginal players, the ones fighting for some kind of spot.There are other stories. Who has impressed? Do the 2019 newbies who replaced the golden oldies look like they can fill the old shoes?Who’s winning the competition for the spots? Is anyone we think the Astros should be able to count on look like they’re struggling? For some, this Spring Training’s performance could even impact career trajectories.HittingWho has Impressed:Some veterans who had down seasons last year are off to hot starts: Yuli Gurriel, Josh Reddick, with 1.311 OPS and 1.117 OPS respectively. We can hope from very early returns that perhaps Gurriel is recovered from last season’s hamate injury, and that Reddick has his 2017 stroke back. Here’s to hope. It’s what springs eternal.Some rookies are making a splash. Yordan Alvarez, Ronnie Dawson, Abraham Toro, and Nick Tanielu, hitting 1.125, .923 .908, 1.257 OPS respectively. Myles Straw is hitting .389 BA, making superman catches in the outfield, and has two stolen bases.The new catcher, Robinson Chirinos, is making a good first impression, starting Spring Training with a .916 OPS. But perhaps the best news of all Spring Training is not something we measure by numbers http://www.metsfanproshop.com/authentic-tim-tebow-jersey , but something we can judge with the old eyeball test.Carlos Correa is swingin man. He’s pulling the ball to left with authority and power, something the injured 2018 Correa could seldom do. If he keeps swinging like he has been the hits will come, the doubles will come, the long homers will come. Jose Altuve says the race for MVP is between Correa and Alex Bregman. Yea baby.It’s hard to believe that Correa is still only 24 years old. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, we are witnessing three Hall of Famers playing in the same infield.Have to include the Ted watch. Kyle Tucker is hitting .333, but the power show he put on last Spring Training is so far missing. His slugging percentage is .400.Who has not impressed:AJ Reed, soon to be 26, needs a better Spring than he has had so far. He has had one hit, a homer, in 14 AB’s, to go with 7 K’s. Par for the course in every one of Reed’s stints in the Big Leagues. Looking like the word AAAA has AJ Reed’s picture next to it in the dictionary. How long does he stay on the 40 man?Many are concerned about Aledmys Diaz’ 1 for 13 to start the pre-season. He is a proven veteran and his life did not begin with the Astros.PitchingWho has impressed:To start with, the two essential elements, Gerrit Cole and Justin Verlander look fine. It’s easy to take that for granted, but if they didn’t look fine, you’d sure hear about that.Brad Peacock has staked an early claim on the fifth starter spot, pitching two perfect innings with two strike outs and looking sharp doing it. Wade Miley walked only one with no hits in his two innings pitched thus far. So far, so good.Among veteran relievers Roberto Osuna looked mid-season in two scoreless innings and on Sunday Ryan Pressly made his first appearance, baffling the three batters he faced, striking out the side.A lot of rookie pitchers have shown thus far that there will be depth in the Minors behind the 12 Big Leaguers. Brandon Bailey and Kit Scheetz have each pitched two perfect innings. Akeem Bostick has thrown 4 scoreless innings, with four hits and no walks. Peter Solomon has thrown three scoreless, hitless innings, but surrendered three walks.Top 100 prospect JB Bukauskas has shone as well, throwing four scoreless, allowing only a hit and a walk.Another one to watch is Brandon Bielak, who allowed one run in four innings, but no hits and five strikeouts. His four walks during these innings is out of character Asdrubal Cabrera Jersey , as he surrendered 3 per 9 innings last year in AA.Time for the Forrest Whitley watch. He proved he was human on Saturday, surrendering a grand slam, although only one of the five runs he surrendered was earned.Still, in five innings total he has allowed only three hits and a walk, and has struck out five.Who has not impressed:Are we nearing the end of the line for Brady Rodgers? Is he the AJ Reed of the pitching staff? It’s early of course, but in five innings he has surrendered eight hits and four runs. For some reason, we haven’t seen Cionel Perez or Will Harris yet. Inquiring minds want to know.We did see one inning of ostensible third starter Collin McHugh, who left with back discomfort. His start on Monday has been pushed back. Given the Astros record for understating the seriousness of injuries, I am just a little bit discomfortable with this situation.Of course Josh James is sidelined for now with a quad injury.Framber Valdez, who had a 2.19 ERA in 37 innings last year, but a 4.65 FIP, has finally achieved his peripherals this Spring Training. He couldn’t pitch around his walks in his second appearance, and in 3.1 innings has a 5.40 ERA, a 2.10 WHIP with three walks and no K’s. He does not seem to have solved his problem with control, and if he doesn’t solve it soon, he may find his way back to the Minors to fix it.Given the way he ended last season, there should be legitimate concern that Chris Devenski has not found the answer this season to the problems that plagued him last season. He has only shown up once this Spring, and he gave up three hits, a walk and four runs, getting only one out. That was the kind of performance we saw too often last August that got Devo sent to the Minors. Let’s hope he finds his touch soon.The obligatory, It’s just the first week of Spring Training, small samples of an unrealistic situation. Of course we can’t make big assumptions from these performances, but they must mean something, otherwise why would anyone care even a little bit.Opening Day is March 28.Go Stros
