a.The arrival of the Manchester United midfielder

I was disappointed to hear the optioned to the minors Tuesday, but let’s face it — he deserved it after the spring he put together. Although, I kind of hoped this would happen. Why? I think the Tigers made a huge mistake by promoting Turner to the majors too soon. It seems like Turner — a 2009 first-round pick — has been around forever, but he’s only 21have signed midfielder Regan Slater on a season-long loan from Premier League side Sheffield United.The 19-year-old, who has played three first-team games for the Blades, scored two goals in 41 appearances on loan at Carlisle United last season.”I’d years old! I don’t feel he got enough time to develop in the minors before his debut and it’s wreaking havoc on a once-promising career.

I know it’s not going to help seasonal-league Fantasy owners, but I think it would be best for Turner to spend most, if not all, of the 2013 season in the minors. He still in the very early stages of his pro career and it seems he could benefit from honing his craft. Obviously, the Marlins aren’t built to contend this season, so there’s no need to rush Turner back to the majors.

I don’t think he will ever develop into a high-end Fantasy starter because his strikeout rate isn’t great. But I’m not ready to throw the towel in on him either. I still think he has a bright future. The Marlins just need to take the weight of the world off his shoulders and let him get back to the dy to sign a new deal with Lazio.The midfielder has agreed new terms to 2022.Lucas, 32, revealed: “It was an easy choice, I felt good in Rome from day one. “The team welcomed me with open arms.

Podcast: Fantasy Preview — Busts

content_img

Fantasy previews, both on CBSSports.com and on other Fantasy providers, often center around a discussion of sleepers and busts. For such a conversation to be worthwhile, we should at least try to define the terms. 

So let’s think a bit about busts. Is a first-round player a bust if he only provides third-round value? Or does the player have to go full awful, like Tim Lincecum in 2012?

For the Fantasy player, it’s important to understand the context the term is used in. When we talk about Mike Trout’s bust potential — as Nando di Fino and Scott White cover in the podcast — we might consider him a bust if he merely produces 20th-overall value as opposed ton Wan-Bissaka and Timothy Fosu-Mensah are happy to be together again at Manchester United.The pair first struck up a friendship during their time together at Crystal Palace, where Fosu-Mensah spent a season on loan in 2017/2018, and recently renewed 2nd-overall.

Eighteen spots may seem minimal, but in the CBSSports.com mock AL-Only auction, the difference between number 2 and number 20 was $12 — the same price paid for players likee celebrated their swoop for Birmingham City striker Che Adams with a swipe at Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp.With a host of Saints players going to Liverpool in recent years, Virgil van Dijk, Nathaniel Clyne, Dejan Lovren, Adam Lallana and Sadio Mane to Rays phenom Wil Myers and Red Sox closer Joel Hanrahan. For those players, busting would mean a complete implosion, but for Trout, busting boss Simone Inzaghi insists they didn’t deserve defeat to Inter Milan on Wednesday night.Danilo D’Ambrosio’s header proved the winner, with Inter goalkeeper Samir Handanovic outstanding.“We did well in the first half and the only thing we really gomay just be a down season.

Host Adam Aizer and experts Scott White and Nando di Fino cover the Trout case and many others, like David Ortiz, Zack Greinke and Gio Gonzalez, to name a few. Who do the experts agree on? Where is the disagreement? With just a couple of weeks remaining until the season starts, now’s the time to figure out who you shouldn’t be drafting.

Your 2012 AL Rookie of the Year (Non-Mike Trout division)

content_img

(US Presswire)

It hardly seems fair. Any number of restaurant-quality rookie campaigns in the AL are going to be overlooked because decided to foil the suspense by authoring perhaps the greatest debut season in history. So let us give the distant remainder its due.

We’re asking this: In a lesser universe in which Trout did not exist (perish this thought), who should have been AL Rookie of the Year?

More on Rookie of the Year awardsAnalysisRelated linksMore coverage | | |

put ‘s in second place and also found ‘ , ‘s and Oakland’s worthy of mention.

Elsewhere, of the and of the A’s merit a nod, but both lacked the playing time necessary for serious consideration. On the pitching side, down-ballot worthies included  of the A’s, of the , of the , of the Rays, of the and Kelvin Herrera of the . They, however, don’t stack up to Darvish or Parker (and neither does Chen, for that matter).

So the merits of each serious contender not named Mike Trout:

Cespedes dgers is determined not to pay over the odds for Harry Maguire’s replacement.Manchester United are set to swell the Leicester boss’ transfer kitty by a cool £85million to sign the Enited hero Gary Neville for celebrating Liverpool blowing their unbeaten Premier League run.The Reds, who return to league action against Bournemouth at Anfield on Saturday lunchtime, saw their hopes of going the entirety of the 2019/20 Premier Leaguegland defender.Asked if he feared having to pay a premium now selli… He batted .292/.356/.505 and averaged an extra-base hit every 9.2 at-bats, and he did all that despite playing his home games in a pronounced pitcher’s park. On the bases, he swiped 16 bags in 20 attempts. His value in the field, though, is up for debate. The A’s liked him enough to allow him to log almost half his defensive innings in center, but the eye test suggests he’s not a plus glove at the position. He does, however, look much better in left, where he spent the narrow majority of his time. Ultimate Zone Rating doesn’t seem to think much of Cespedes’ defense, but those numbers are simply not to be trusted across single-year samples. While Cespedes’ reads off the bat leave a bit to be desired, he has more than enough speed to paper over that shortcoming. I’m comfortable calling him an asset in left.

Darvish … Like Cespedes, he toiled in a home yard that was hostile toward his interestsclosing on an agreement with Benfica midfielder Gedson Fernandes.The Benfica-star-Gedson-Fernandes-18-month-loan-deal.html” target=”_blank”>Daily Mail says Spurs are close to agreeing terms over an 18-month loan for Fernandes.The 21-year-old had been. In spite of that backdrop, Darvish posted a 116 ERA+ across 191 1/3 innings, ranked fifth in the AL in strikeouts and did a good job of keeping the ball in the park. Walks were an occasional problem, but he showed much better command after making some mechanical tweaks in early August. Darvish’s peripherals say his ERA should’ve been better than it was.

Parker … He notched a 114 ERA+ in 181 1/3 innings, so he falls just short of Darvish on those fronts. Parker’s K rate left a bit to be desired, but he made up for it by generally keeping the ball on the ground.

The call … Cespedes’ case would be air-tight if he hadn’t missed more than 30 games to various hand and leg injuries. Even so, Cespedes is the choice. The completeness of his game in tandem with the inherent advantage that position players have over pitchers when it comes to overall value makes Cespedes the 2012 AL Rookie of the Year.

Except for Mike Trout, of course.

With 32 games left, Nationals pitchers set club record for strikeouts

content_img

(Getty Images)

Thursday night’s game against the marked Game No. 130 for the Nats. Seeing as how the Nationals have never finished above .500 and this season they have been as many as 31 games over .500, club records are going to be shattered. 

Here’s one that just happened. When Nationals starter struck out Cardinals left fielder in the top of the sixth inning, it was the 1,069th strikeout by the Washilks with Thibaut Courtois about his future.Since his return, replacing Julen Lopetegui after his sacking, Zidane has rotated his keepers Courtois, Keylor Navas and son Luca Zidane. It has led to talk of Courtois being moved on this summer.However, Okngton pitching staff this season. That established a newo Manchester United.United paid £46.5m plus add-ons for Fernandes but Varandas admitted they were nearly forced them to take a lower offer from Tottenham.“At the end of June, we had become aware that we were going to sell Bruno,” he told Record.”W Nationals record ().

The Nats are fourth in the majors in strikeouts, behind the , and , so they aren’t going to set a big-league record or anything.

This is newsworthy because the Nationals are going to obliterate a club record. They came into Thursday averaging 8.21 strikeouts per game. At thed star Ander Herrera has been listed on the Paris Saint-Germain official website.Herrera officially confirmed his departure from United and is a free agent, but he has not announced a move to PSG as yet.Eagle eyed fans spotted that “Herrera 21” on tat pace, the Nats will end with 1,331. And, again, they previously never struck out more than 1,068 hitters in one season. That is pretty impressive.

Prospect spotlight: Mariners RHP Taijuan Walker

(Getty Images)

Standing next to Taijuan Walker, the last thing you think is that this is a 19-year-old kid. However, for at least another couple of weeks, that’s just what he is — 19 with an amazing right arm.Walker’s listed at 6-foot-4, 210 pounds, and is every bit of it. A prep basketball start in California, Walker looks like he would be a nice slasher from the perimeter with the athleticism to attack the rim. Instead, he’s attacking hitters in Double-A. The ‘ top pick in the 2010 draft (43rd overall), Walker breezed through the Midwest League last year and the team had him skip high-Class A to see how he fared against more advanced players.The numbers — Walker’s 7-6 with a  4.12 ERA at Jackson — don’t tell the exact story about the right-hander. Through the first two months of the season, he was 4-1 with a 2.23 in nine starts, striking out 44 and walking just 14 in 44 1/3 innings in the first two months. He struggled in June — giving up 21 earned runs in five starts (going 0-3 with a 9.15 ERA) but has settled back down in July, giving up half the runs he did in the previous month while pitching 6 1/3 more innings.Much of his struggles, he said, was trouble with his curveball, which is a pitch he never threw before turning pro. The Mariners shelved his slider to avoid putting stress on his elbow, just like they did with early in his career. During his struggles earlier this year, Walker admitted he was tempted to talk to his catcher and pull his slider back out, just to get through the stretch.”I want to. I’m really, really thinking about doing that,” he joked last month. “I want to. It’s hard not to, especially when my curveball isn’t there. I just want to call the catcher out and tell him, ‘we’re going to throw sliders today, scrap the curveball.”He already had his line for his pitching coach practiced — “It was a curveball, it just broke weird.”But in the end, he knows the Mariners are looking out for his long-term success — something they believe will come. One scout told CBSSports.com, “I never like to anoint guys, but he’s special.”Walker’s special because of his physique, the fact he throws an easy high-90s fastball and the curve and main on loan in the Spanish capital for the 2019-20 campaign, after which the agreement will become permanent.Morata arrived in west London from Real Madrid in the summer of 2017 and went on to score 24 goals in 72 appearances for the Blues.He moved change up are developing. But more than that, the team loves his work ethic and his maturity. After the 2011 season, the 19-year-old decided to move his offseason home away from his California hometown to the Phoenix area so that he could spend more time at the Mariners’ training complex.”I’m a huge family guy and I didn’t want to leave my family. I had to do it for me and my career,” Walker said. “Hopefully it will all work out and I’ll be able to spend more time with the my family instead of staying in the minors a long time because i went to and got the extra work. You’ve got to dedicate yourself to the game. It’s your job.”And ultimately, that’s why he’s working out with the Seattle staff in the offseason and following their plans for his slider even though it means there could be bumps in the road. Int he end, the Mariners believe they have another ace — and with the likes of Danny Hultzen and James Paxton on the way as well, you can see why the Mariners were OK with trading Michael Pineda last offseason. • For the first time as a professional, right-hander pitched into the seventh inning on Wednesday night. Pitching for high-Class A Frederick, Bundy went 6 2/3 innings, retiring 16 of the final 17 batters he faced. He was pulled from the game after reaching his pitch count. Bundy allowed two hits and an unearned run while striking out eight and walking two. In 10 starts at Frederick, Bundy is 5-3 with a 2.57 ERA and 56 strikeouts in 49 innings.•  third baseman knocked in eight runs for low-Class A Peoria in an 11-10 victory.

He has 13 on the season.• In his first start for the organization, right-hander allowed just one hit and an unearned run, while striking out seven in five innings for Double-A Huntsville.

So far he’s hitting .275/.378/.495 with five home runs and five stolen bases. He’s striking out more than once a game — 35 Ks in 27 games — but for a player who hadn’t played as much baseball as his peers, it’s an encouraging start for the ultra-talented outfielder.

But just hours earlier, he was exchanging insurance information after someone ran a red light and hit his SUV while he was on the way to the game. :

Parsons said he and driver were not hurt, though it made him a few minutes late for treatment before shooting to see if he would be cleared to play. “She said she ran a red light and it was her fault,” Parsons said. “She had a little car so it kind of messed up the front bumper of my car. She was OK. Asked me to sign her insurance card.”
