Cleveland has selected right-handed pitcher Gavin Williams out of East Carolina Juan Uribe Jersey. Standing 6-foot-6 as a college senior, Williams has one of the biggest power arms of the 2021 draft.Here’s what MLB Pipeline had to say about him:Williams had one of the most projectable fastballs in the 2017 high school class, reaching 95 mph as a lanky 6-foot-6 North Carolinian, and he hit 100 mph as an East Carolina freshman after turning down the Rays as a 30th-rounder. But he never could claim a regular rotation spot in his first three years with the Pirates and pitched just three innings while dealing with a finger injury during the pandemic-shortened 2020 season, after which he declined some Draft overtures. Just when he was getting pegged as a hard-throwing reliever who lacked feel for spin, he broke out this spring, earning American Athletic Conference pitcher of the year honors, ranking fifth in NCAA Division I in strikeout rate and holding his own in a super-regional duel with Vanderbilt’s Kumar Rocker. A potential first-round pick, Williams still offers plenty of fastball velocity and can approach triple digits while holding 94-97 mph for several innings as a starter. His upper-70s curveball suddenly has more power and more consistent shape with some eye-popping metrics Jose Ramirez Jersey, and his previously lackluster slider is now an average mid-80s offering that shows flashes of becoming solid. He has continued to display aptitude for a mid-80s changeup, giving him a deep mix of pitches. Strong and athletic, Williams has cleaned up his delivery during his time in college but didn’t provide consistent strikes until this year. He looked good in the fall of 2019 and scouts thought he was trending upward before he broke the ring finger on his pitching hand during a rundown drill. His breakthrough has come a year later and he’s making a convincing argument that he could be a mid-rotation starter Pipeline had Williams listed as the No. 31 prospect in the 2021 MLB Draft, so he’s not too far off projections, and his power arm could be one of the most electric in Cleveland’s system almost immediately.

The Oakland Athletics beat the Yankees 3-2 Saturday in Oakland, ending the Yankees’ 13-game winning streak. Oakland’s Frankie Montas completely shut down the Yankees for seven innings Billy Martin Jersey, and despite Aaron Judge’s best efforts to ruin the day for Oakland late, the A’s were able to hang on for the win.After Néstor Cortes got through the first 1.2 innings without allowing a hit, the A’s were able to get on the scoreboard first with two outs in the bottom of the second inning. A’s right fielder Chad Pinder lined a double to the wall in left-center field and was barely safe at second as Aaron Judge made a great throw in from center to almost nab him. Cortes didn’t do himself any favors by walking light-hitting Sean Murphy to create a first and second situation. When Oakland’s Tony Kemp followed with a worm-burning six-hopper into center field, Pinder scored while Murphy advanced to third base. Cortes then dug the hole a little deeper for himself by balking in Murphy – which, in Néstor’s defense, didn’t appear to be a balk. Regardless, after two innings and with only one hard-hit ball, Oakland led 2-0. In the bottom of the fourth inning, Oakland’s All-Star third baseman Matt Chapman tacked a run on for the A’s, and he made sure this one wasn’t going to be a cheap one. Chapman took an 89.9 mph four-seamer from Cortes deep – 403 feet to be exact – and when it landed over the left-center field wall Gerrit Cole Jersey, the A’s lead was 3-0.Meanwhile, the Bronx Bombers weren’t able to do much of anything against Oakland starter Frankie Montas. Through seven innings, Montas only needed to face 23 Yankees, allowing two hits - both to Aaron Judge, one of which was erased quickly when Joey Gallo bounced into a 3-6-3 double play - and a walk. Montas exited after seven, allowing zero significant threats, let alone any runs.Cortes Jr. didn’t have his best stuff, and certainly didn’t get much help from his defense or the umpires, but he left allowing only three runs over 5.1 innings. He also continued to display his season-long skill of avoiding hard contact, allowing only one ball to be hit harder than 100 mph on the day. Despite the deficit, Cortes left a winnable game for the Yankees Corey Kluber Jersey, given the manner in which they’ve been playing.Cortes’ replacement, Albert Abreu, was able to escape a jam in the bottom of the seventh inning to keep the lead at three. After Giancarlo Stanton misplayed a Tony Kemp fly ball into what was generously ruled a double, Abreu induced two weak groundballs from Josh Harrison and Starling Marte, then struck out Yan Gomes for the third out , ending the threat. Nevertheless, the Yankees still trailed by three runs entering the eighth inning.The Yankees certainly didn’t go down without a fight, and made things interesting for everybody in the top of the ninth inning. Anthony Rizzo and Aaron Judge combined to go “bloop and a blast” as John Sterling would say, to cut the lead to 3-2. Rizzo’s ball was struck at 70.2 mph for a bloop single, and Judge’s 110 mph over the left-center field wall – when Judge’s landed, the Yankees had life.Alas, Oakland’s Sergio Romo induced a pop-up from Giancarlo Stanton and a ground out from Joey Gallo to end the game, and the Yankees’ 13-game winning streak along with it.

One of the busiest periods in baseball’s calendar has arrived The trade deadline is merely days away, and now that the majority of teams are either clear buyers or sellers, more reasonable trade speculation can commence. The Astros are among the American League’s elite and will surely be looking to add to their big-league roster. Let’s explore two trades general manager James Click could swing.Chicago Cubs trade: RP Craig KimbrelHouston Astros trade: RP Bryan AbreuRHP Alex Santos IIRHP Peter SolomonSynopsis: The Astros address their greatest weakness by landing the trade market’s top reliever, while the Cubs add a young, big-league arm with late-inning potential, as well as a pair of solid starting pitching prospects. By all accounts and reports, Kimbrel seems to be at the top of the Astros’ wish list, and for good reason. Despite being 33, the eight-time All-Star has been arguably the best reliever in baseball in 2021 and could be extremely valuable in October.Additionally, Kimbrel is unlikely to just be a rental, as he has a 2022 club option worth $16 million that’s likely to be exercised by whichever team acquires him.As talented as Abreu is, he’s been volatile and at this point isn’t an arm the Astros could feasibly rely on to pitch high-leverage innings in the postseason. It’s no secret the club is in short supply of those types, which would warrant a trade of this magnitude.According to various evaluators such as FanGraphs’ Eric Longenhagen and The Athletic’s Keith Law, Santos and Solomon both have the potential to be viable big-league starters. In April, Longenhagen ranked Solomon the Astros’ No. 9 prospect and Santos at No. 15.Santos, the Astros’ top draft pick in 2020, is pitching at full season Low-A while just 19, though he’s yet to accumulate more than a handful of innings at the level due to an injury he’s since recovered from. The Bronx native’s value lies with his projectable 6’4” frame and a high-spin four-seam fastball that can reach 95 mph.Solomon underwent Tommy John surgery just over two years ago and has spent much of the 2021 season at Triple-A. Were it not for the elbow injury, the 24-year-old’s profile might seem more enticing, as his talent and minor-league track record are notable. Consequently, his control is not yet where it needs to be.Trades involving a big-name player such as Kimbrel are seldom received by fan bases without some level of contention. Some may think the Cubs will reel in more for their All-Star closer while others will deem this package an overpay of sorts Mike Cuellar Jersey. Võistlused. Соревнования. 20.09.2021, 10:00

Tyler Mahle continued his road brilliance on Thursday, and it helped the Cincinnati Reds eek out a win in a lost series in Pittsburgh. There are certainly many, many ‘grand scheme’ issues that are in play here at the moment, but this is a game recap only, so I suppose we’ll focus on a positive while it’s in front of us.Folks, the offense continued to look puny, with a lone run on the day being the sole output on a day when the Pirates started a guy who was in Indy Ball earlier in the year and was DFA’d by the Toronto Blue Jays earlier this month to start. For the record, he wasn’t even who the run was charged to, either. The heart of the order struggled tremendously - Nick Castellanos and Mike Moustakas combined to go 0 for 8 - and only an Asdrubal Cabrera sac-fly on the heels of a Shogo Akiyama bunt helped them get their run Mike Moustakas Jersey.Joey Votto doubled off a lefty and walked on the day. Joey Votto always gets a mention from me. Mychal Givens, Michael Lorenzen, and Michael Lucas Sims did noble work from the bullpen, too, as each put up a zero.Focusing on the lone positive in front of us was easy for a sentence and a half, I suppose, but that ends when I do that thing where I talk about the next game for the Reds, as that’s a home slate against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Friday’s contest will feature NL Cy Young Award candidate Walker Buehler on the mound, while Saturday will feature NL Cy Young Award candidate Max Scherzer. Sunday, the Reds will get 3-time Cy Young Award winner Clayton Kershaw - a LHP, of course. All that on the heels of having lost 7 consecutive series.The St. Louis Cardinals, occupiers of the 2nd NL Wild Card spot at the moment, are idle tonight, and on Friday they begin a 3-game slate against fellow Wild Card contender San Diego in series that will be fascinating to watch Dan Driessen Jersey.These are the best of times, these are the worst of times.

Preseason projections were not kind to the Colorado Rockies, and while you may disagree with the severity of the doom that was predicted, it’s hard to say they had no ammo to make those projections. Whatever the case, let’s check in on some of those projections, shall we? There’s only a month left, and the story of most teams and players’ seasons has likely already been written, at least all but the final chapter or so. Let’s kick things off with the standings.100-Loss Season?The big scary mark out of the way first: the Rockies won’t lose 100 games this season unless they go on an unprecendented run of ineptitude from here on out PECOTA projected them to go 60-102, which was obviously an exaggeration, and Fangraphs was somewhere around the 100-loss mark as well. Now, anyone who knew what they were talking about could’ve told you that the Rockies’ rotation was far too solid to allow this to happen barring tons of injuries, but the offense did look pretty grim, so I’ll give those a pass. Still, this barrier was cleared: no 100-loss season on the horizon, which I don’t know if it’s good or bad for the franchise.The Big Misses: Hitters For convenience, I’d classify something as a “miss” when the original projection was at least 1 Elias Diaz Jersey.5 WAR off the final result, and to that end, Ryan McMahon qualifies here: he was projected for just 0.8 WAR and is currently on pace for 2.3 WAR, carried mainly by phenomenal defensive value the projections just didn’t see coming. Elías Díaz has been a surprise as well, projecting to end the season at 1.3 WAR after being seen as barely replacement level entering the year, and Connor Joe is also worth a mention, being projected for -0.4 WAR before we got off the ground while currently on pace for 1.0 WAR, as is Rio Ruiz in the opposite direction, being projected for 1.2 WAR and currently standing at replacement level.The rest of the “misses” have been mostly small deviations. CJ Cron, Charlie Blackmon Colton Welker Jersey, Brendan Rodgers, and Raimel Tapia have performed better than expected, but the the other guys are mostly around their numbers.The Big Misses: PitchersThis is where there’s a pretty bad one.

A well-rested Tigers team faced off against the NL Central-leading Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday night for the first of a two-game short series, and with some thunderstorms interrupting the proceedings, a pitcher’s duel produced a 1-0 Tigers victory in 11 innings; a walk-off single from Derek Hill earning the Tigers a victory.Wily Peralta faced Freddy Peralta, and according to our research, the two are not related. Wily, coming off a pair of good-but-not-great four-inning starts against the A’s and Pirates, had his splitter going in the first inning, striking out Kolten Wong to start the game.Freddy Peralta has been sensational this year, with a 2.69 ERA and a 0.976 WHIP in 24 starts and a relief outing. He had 172 strikeouts in 127 innings coming into tonight, against 54 walks, for a K/BB ratio a bit above 3. His delivery at times drops down to a low three-quarters angle, which provides the illusion of a “rising” fastball. Freddy P. is on a tight innings limit, though: oneé_Cisnero_Jersey, he only pitched 29 innings last year, and two, the Brewers have all but salted-away the division title, so they’re already thinking about October in terms of their pitching staff. Before tonight’s tilt, his previous outings have only been 2 and 3 2⁄3 innings.Wily P. played with fire a bit in the second: after a one-out walk and a two-out single, Daniel Vogelbach was at the plate with a chance to put Milwaukee up early. But, Vogelbach lined out to center and that was that.Jeimer Candelario got on base with one out in the second the hard way, getting plunked by F. Peralta on the right hand. He was okay Casey Mize Jersey, and was on first base with two outs when Niko Goodrum smashed a line drive to right-center, but Avisail Garcia made a fine running catch right where the wall juts out to end the inning.The tops of the second, third and fourth innings all ended with lineouts to outfielders with at least one runner on base. That Wily Peralta, man, he’ll wiggle out of pretty much everything. Through five innings, “our” Peralta was sitting at the 72-pitch mark after having his first 1-2-3 inning since the first.The first Tiger hit was Candelario’s bloop single to left to lead off the fifth... and he was erased in a 5-4-3 double play grounder from Eric Haase. Goodrum struck out, and the contest remained deadlocked at goose-eggs.Wily Peralta was rolling pretty nicely: his strikeout of Garcia to end the fifth represented his ninth straight batter retired. I’ll take it.No slouch himself, Freddy Peralta mixed up a curveball, slider, not-entirely-sinking fastball, and a few changeups for good measure He went far deeper in this game than his previous two, primarily due to his exceptionally low pitch count: only 51 after five innings.Willi Castro singled to lead off the bottom of the fifth. After Victor Reyes and Akil Baddoo struck out, Jonathan Schoop got hit by a pitch, putting runners on first and second. Robbie Grossman followed and worked the count to 3-0... but popped out to shortstop as the sad trombones played.Just before the sixth started Victor Reyes Jersey, thunderstorms were imminent in downtown Detroit you can only dodge the bullet for so long and the tarps came out. You can see why, right here. Võistlused. Соревнования. 20.09.2021, 09:58

Before we get into previewing tonight’s game between the Chicago White Sox and the visiting Oakland Athletics, everyone at South Side Sox would like to reiterate our fervent support and well wishes to the Oakland’s All-Star pitcher, Chris Bassitt, who was hospitalized after being hit in the face with a line drive in last night’s game. May his recovery be swift and full. Although these guys are professionals, it would be reasonable to believe that it may require additional effort to put themselves in a good head space after such an emotional event Thankfully, they will be treated to a beautiful night to play baseball on Chicago’s South Side. My Dark Sky app tells me it’ll be warm and humid perfect weather to see some dingers.And, well, I had a whole write-up on the probable pitcher, Cole Irvin, but a few hours ago, the A’s made a change and will now send out Paul Blackburn. According the the pre-game show on NBCSChicago, his ERA is 27.00 - so, I mean, let’s do it.Here’s how the A’s are lining up:Today's lineup vs. White Sox - Aug. 18, 2021 at Guaranteed Rate Field AthleticsPR August 18, 2021Lance Lynn , who is currently in the Top 3 favorites to win the American League Cy Young, will make his first start for the White Sox since his no-decision at the Field of Dreams game. Manager Tony La Russa is sending out a pretty standard lineup tonight, save for the fact that Andrew Vaughn will get some rest in favor of Jake Lamb in left field Võistlused.
