Charlie Morton Jersey
A look at what’s happening around the majors today:THE SHO GOES ONShohei Ohtani doesn’t need two good elbows to help the Angels. Doctors this week recommended the two-way rookie sensation have Tommy John surgery on his right pitching elbow http://www.astrosfanproshop.com/authentic-justin-verlander-jersey , but Ohtani has been crushing it at the plate, hitting four homers in his past three games. Ohtani has 19 home runs and leads all rookies with a .579 slugging percentage, and he says he’ll keep hitting through the end of the season before deciding whether to have surgery that would keep him off the mound until 2020. The Angels will face White Sox veteran James Shields.NEW BREWGio Gonzalez is set to make his first start with the Brewers against the Giants. The left-hander was acquired from the Nationals a week ago. He had lost three of his final four starts with Washington while posting an 8.71 ERA, but Milwaukee is hoping he can help the team’s postseason push.BUCK UPClay Buchholz’s resurgent season keeps getting better, a trend Arizona hopes he extends against Atlanta. The 34-year-old right-hander is 7-2 with a 2.05 ERA, including 2-0 with an 0.64 ERA in his past four starts. The Diamondbacks are trying to close ground on the Rockies and Dodgers in the NL West, a tough task with the NL East-leading Braves in town. Atlanta is set to pitch right-hander Julio Teheran (9-7, 4.05).RIGHT DECISIONMets third baseman David Wright is scheduled to participate in a simulated game at Citi Field Jimmy Wynn Jersey , his next step as he tries to make a major league comeback from neck, back and shoulder injuries. The 35-year-old team captain hasn’t played in the big leagues since May 2016. He batted a combined .171 (7 for 41) with one double in 10 games for Class A St. Lucie and two with Triple-A Las Vegas last month before his rehab assignment expired on the final day of August.PITCHING PIGSKINSDavid Hess is set to start for the Orioles, a day after he was hit in the eye while playing catch with a football at Tropicana Field. It’s a normal sight across the majors to see pitchers doing running work involving football passes before batting practice. A specialist examined Hess’ left eye, and he was back in the Baltimore dugout Friday — wearing an LSU football helmet. Mike Minor and Jaime Barria are hoping to maintain their recent success on the mound when they go head-to-head Monday night in the opener of a three-game series between the Texas Rangers and Los Angeles Angels at Angel Stadium.Minor (11-7, 4.31 ERA) is 5-1 in his past six starts with a 2.78 ERA. The left-hander has been one of the few recent bright spots for the Rangers (61-82), who have lost four in a row and 10 of their past 13 games.Barria (10-8, 3.30) is 4-1 with a 1.82 ERA in his past six starts for the Angels, who have won four in a row and seven of 10. Two of Barria’s recent outings came against the Rangers http://www.astrosfanproshop.com/authenti...der-jersey , and he’s 3-0 against Texas this season with a 0.86 ERA.Article continues below ...Minor is also scheduled to make his second straight start against the Angels after allowing two runs and three hits in five innings of a 4-2 win on Tuesday, his only decision against Los Angeles in four career appearances, including two starts. The Angels were 0-for-8 with runners in scoring position against Minor.Minor was a starter his first five seasons with the Atlanta Braves, missed two seasons because of injuries and then made 65 appearances out of the bullpen for the Kansas City Royals last season. The Rangers acquired Minor in the offseason and they moved him back into a starting role.Minor told MLB.com after his last outing that he’s not surprised with his success as a starter but rather expected it.“That sounds bad, but I think people didn’t expect me to have a good season,” he said. “They thought I should have gone to the bullpen and I wasn’t cut out to be a starter anymore. It feels good to end it like this. Couple more starts to go, but it’s coming together.”Minor brings a 1.10 WHIP in 25 starts into the series opener.The only players in franchise history with a WHIP of 1.1 or lower and at least 25 starts are Ferguson Jenkins (1974, 1978) Charlie Morton Jersey , Bert Blyleven (1976), Nolan Ryan (1989-91) and Yu Darvish (2013).“We couldn’t have asked for it to work any better than it has,” Rangers manager Jeff Banister told MLB.com. “He’ll still get to 29 starts, which I think is an important mark for him to get to. It’s important to continue that process with Mike and not push the envelope at all, so we still have a guy who is fairly fresh into the offseason, in good shape so that when we get to spring training next year, we can take the gloves off and let him run with it.”Barria beat the Rangers on Wednesday in Texas, blanking them on two hits for five innings.“He had to work hard to get through five innings http://www.astrosfanproshop.com/authenti...der-jersey ,” Angels manager Mike Scioscia told MLB.com after that game. “We talk about Jaime, what his upside is — even when he’s not as crisp as he was maybe the other night in Houston, he’s facing a tough lineup, and he puts up five zeros and gives us a chance to win.”Angels designated hitter Shohei Ohtani is getting a chance to hit every game with Albert Pujols sidelined with a knee injury, and he’s 9-for-19 in his past five games with four home runs, a double, triple and 10 RBIs.Ohtani knocked Minor out of the game with a home run to lead off the sixth inning on Tuesday.
