Prospect spotlight: Astros 2B Delino DeShields Jr.

content_img

LEXINGTON, Ky. — On Baseball-Reference.com, Delino DeShields’ first full season in professional baseball looks downright dreadful. The ’ first-round pick in 2010 spent all of 2011 at low Class-A Lexington and hit just .220/.305/.322 with 118 strikeouts in 119 games. By all measures, that’s not what you’d like to see from a guy who was taken eighth overall, five spots ahead of , and given a $2.15 million signing bonus.But that’s not how DeShields sees it. Not at all.“Last year it wasn’t about how well I hit or how many bags did I steal, it was about me improving as a second baseman,” DeShields said earlier this week. “This year, the plan was to put it all together and see what we have and take that and move on. “For me, [2010] was a [success]. It might not look like it to other people, for me and our organization, it was a success.”The speedy DeShields was moved from the outfield to second, with his first exposure to second base coming in spring training of 2011. He went from spring to full-season Lexington and learned a new position as one of the youngest players in Tottenham as historic.Bayern thrashed their Champions League opponents 7-2 in London last night.Rummenigge declared: “Our team has written some history. I would like to congratulate the coaching team with Niko (Kovac) on top and also the entire teamthe league.“After games, I’m mentally exhausted, just because there’s so many things you do, you have to think about, know where to go,” DeShields said. “Last year was hard, because I didn’t know what I was supposed to do. Now it’s like second nature. Sometimes I don’t even know I’m do things I should be doing, because it’s a second nature.”This season he’s repeating the low-Class A level, but despite being in his second year at Lexington, he’s still the team’s second-youngest player at 19. While his relative youth compared to the rest of his teammates hasn’t changed from last season to this season, everything else seemingly has. Through 79 games, he’s hitting .276/.384/.401 with six home runs and ranking third in the South Atlantic League with 64 runs scored and a league-leading 58 stolen bases.Speed has always been DeShields’ calling card, as it would be expected of the son Delino DeShields, who had 463 career stolen bases. This season his 58 stolen bases has already set a Lexington team record, and his 88 swipes for the Legends is the team’s career record. On Tuesday, he was honored before the game with the base for his 57th stolen base, which set the new record. He then walked and stole second in the first inning to increase his season total. You can see his 58th stolen base of the season here:Most seasons, DeShields’ 58 stolen bases would be the best in the minor leagues, but he just happens to be in the minors at the same time as ’s Billy Hamilton, who stole his 100th base of the season on July 2 and has 101 going into Thursday’s games for high-Class A Bakersfield.“I think what I’ve done is pretty good, but, 100 bags?” DeShields laughs when asked about Hamilton, who was managed by his father last year at low-Class A Dayton when he became the first minor-leaguer in a decade to reach the century mark in stolen bases.While DeShields is pretty sure he can’t catch Hamilton (who can, in any sense of the word?), he’s still eyeing 100 for the season.“It’s really cool. Even if he has 150 bags, it’d be cool if there would be two guys with 100 bags, that’d be special,” DeShields said.He can do it, too — if he continues on his current pace, he’d finish with 99 steals. He’s been caught 10 times, but his .384 on-base percentage and increased walk rate means he has a chance to get on base enough for 100 stolen bases. He needs just one more walk to match his walk total will leave City at the end of the season after 10 years.“I like and we need players on the pitch – experienced, intelligent ones – who see things,” Guardiola said. “We need that.“About what David will do, I don’t know, but it would be nice [if heof all of last season.“If he can get on base, he can get to that point,” said Legends manager Ivan De Jesus, who had 194 stolen bases of his own in his 15-year career. “He can get to that point with walks, knowing the strike zone better. I think he needs to get better contact, but I think he’ll get there. he’s got a quick bat, he can wait for the ball longer. We can expect a lot for him because it’s only his second year. We have to be patient with him because he’s playing another position and it’s going to take time to get to that point.”And that’s fine with DeShields, having already seen results from last year to this, he’s willing to work and wait his time, even if it’s not as fast as others expect him to move up the minor-league ladder.“Anyone taken in the first round is going to have pressure because you’re a team’s first pick,” DeShields said. “I’m always gof Brett Pitman.The former Cherries striker is tied to Luton Town, but has been granted permission to return to Dean Court to train.The 32-year-old initially linked up with the under-21s but asked to join in with Connell’s squad as Shaun Cooper’s grouing to have pressure on me, because of my dad too. I was the Astros’ first pick in 2010 and my dad was in the big leagues for 13 years, so people expect me to be there at least 14.“I’ve always had pressure, always. I think I’ve handled it well. I’ve had people say that I’m not good enough, all that stuff. That’s just people talking and that doesn’t have anything to do with me. You can say what you want to say, but I know what I can do. And it doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks.”• In 11 games since coming back from a 50-game suspension for testing positive for a drug of abuse, former top overall pick is hitting .326/.404/.500 with two home runs for Triple-A Durham. Beckham, 22, was hitting .204/.290/.278 in 13 games before his suspension.• With the start of the short-season leagues, we can finally see some numbers from one of 2011’s most talked-about draftees, Kansas City’s . The fifth overall pick last season, Starling is an incredibly talented outfielder, but very raw. However, he’s been pretty good in his first six pro grams, hitting .360/.484/.680 in 25 at-bats for short-season Burlington, including two home runs and nine RBI. While he has seven strikeouts, he does have five walks.Starling hit two homers on Monday.• After a slow start, outfielder is on fire, with hits in 18 of his last 20 games. Over that stretch he’s hitting .388/.447/.518 with a home run and seven stolen bases. That’s helped his overall line improve to .273/.346/.368. He has three home runs and 22 stolen bases on the season, but has been caught 13 times (three in the last 20 games).• Baseball America came out with its Midseason Top 50 prospects list, with right-hander atop the list. He was followed by shortstop , outfielder, right-hander and Mariners lefty rounding out the top five. Two players highlighted on the CBSSports.com Prospect Spotlight made the top 50, Cincinnati’s Hamilton (27) and second baseman (44).

Report: Lakers to keep Steve Nash through next year

The question with the as it pertains to often-injured point guard is whether to bite bullet on his $9.7 million salary for next year in the last year of his contract or use the stretch provision afforded in the CBA to waive him (spreading his money out over multiple seasons but removing him from the cap).

For financial reasons, the Lakers currently plan to keep him next season, The Times has learned, eating the remainder of his contract $9.7 million in one swoop instead of waiving him and spreading the money out over three years.

Wizards-Pacers Game 5: The vicious return of the real Pacers

content_img

Previewing Game 5 of the Wizards-Pacers Eastern Conference semifinal series.

7 p.m. ET (TNT).  All players are expected to be available, except for Andrew Bynum, who is out with being some sort of spirit that causes basketball teams to fail. 

 The Pacers seem to be back. They’re 3-0 since Andrew Bynum was dismissed from the team, and in the games since have played Pacers defense, found scoring in Roy Hibbert and Paul George, and taken a commandinl break.The attacker has pulled out of the squad due to a groin injury.It will keep him out of their Euro 2020 qualifiers against San Marino and Scotland.The announcement was made by the Belgian federation’s official Twitter account.Trossard had beeng 3-1 lead over the Wizards. 

It wasn’t that the Pacers outclassed Washington in Game 3, they out-executed them. They made the little plays. And this veteran team is still finding itself after becoming so lost, but there’s every reason for confidence.

What’s fascinating is that if there’s one team that could close this thing out in five with four straight, it’s the Pacers. And if there’s one team that could let the Wizards come back to win this in seven, it’s the Pacers. 

As for the Wizards’ role in this? That’s complicated. 

 34.4 percent. That’s John Wall’s field goal percentage in the playoffs. Going in, we thought it would be Wall who would lead the Wizards if they had a chance to advance. Instead it was Nene against Chicago and Bradley Beal through both rounds. In the second round Wall has 30 assists and 14 turnovers. That’s not terrible, but it’s not great. 

If the Wizards are going to get back into this series, Wall has to control his team offensively. He’s played great defense, but he’s got to start findingLiverpool boss Jurgen Klopp says winning the “first ball” was key to their 3-0 win at Burnley.A fortuitous own goal from Chris Wood, who deflected an intended cross from Trent Alexander-Arnold, broke the deadlock following an even opening half hgour some sweet spots at the other end.

 How do you solve a problem like Roy Hibbert? When Hibbert blew up in Game 2, the Wizards basically said, “Well, that’s not going to happen again.” 

It did. 

In the past three games, Hibbert is averaging 19.7 points, 7.7 boards and 2.3 blocks while shooting 65 percent. Are the Wizards going to bring the double? Has it come to this, that Hibbert, the laughingstock of the league for a month and a half, now demands a double-team? 

The other option is to let Hibbert get his. If the Wizards can contain Paul George, who went off in Game 4, and hope Hibbert is good-but-not-great, they can win this game with offense. But they have to make a decision on Hibbert and live with it. Thys Alonso has dropped down the pecking order this season under Frank Lampard and Inter Milan will act upon their initial interest in the January transfer window by making a bid.But Chelsea won’t make special allowances for their former manager Antoniat’s the big problem. They can’t adjust if the strategy fails. When they’ve tried that, problems intensify. 

 Even though it looks like the Pacers have returned to form, there’s still doubt if they’re really back. They won three games vs. a mediocre playoff team. So what? But closing out the Wizards at home is an opportunity to get at least five days’ rest before the Eastern Conference Finals begin … in Indy. 

A loss to the Wizards at home, and it’s 3-2 going back to Washington and the whole thing starts over. If it’s possible to play a must-win game when leading 3-1, Indy has found it.

Thunder: Serge Ibaka day-to-day as swelling subsides in calf

content_img

Five days after and that forward would miss Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals, let alone the entire series, the ThunRobertson believes Liverpool teammate Jordan Henderson deserves the Premier League Player of the Year award.The Reds captain has been exceptional in Jurgen Klopp’s midfield, with his side possessing a 22-point gap at the top of the Premier League tabder announced Friday that swelling in Ibaka’s calf has substantially decreased and he’s now day-to-day for the series … including Game 3. 

Un-freaking-believable. And yet, so believable. 

From the Thunder: 

“The abundance of blood and therefore swelling in Serge’s calf has reduced substantially and unexpectedly, allowing a level of movement and stability not thought possible after the initial diagnosis. Based on both imaging and physical exam, the considerable swelling in the calf indicated the likelihood of a certham broke a record held by Eden Hazard in victory at Wolves.He is now the youngest player to score a hat-trick at the club.The 21-year-old was on fire against Wolves, netting his first on the 34-minute mark before bagging two more either side of the ain degree of injury, and that established the original time frame for recovery.

At present, Serge has yet to complete a full basketball workout, but is walking and doing light basketball drills. With this new information, and in an effort to keep his status current, we are now listing him as day-toes record with a goal in their draw with Getafe.Betis had been trailing and were playing with a man less when Nabil Fekir earned a penalty which Joaquin converted.The captain of the Andalusian side equalled Julio Cardenosa at 307 career matches in th-day with the understanding that there is a possibility for him to play in this series.”

The Spurs have dominated this series to such a degree that you wonder if Ibaka playing, especially if limited, could really have any sort of impact. But given how awful the Thunder have been at protecting the rim, this can only help them to try and even the series as it heads back to Oklahoma City. 

The Thunder will need more than Ibaka to get back into this thing, but Ibaka provides an athleticism, defense, offensive ability and an emotional lift to a team that needs it. The conspiracy theorists were right. It looks like it’s very possible we may see an Ibaka.
