Сообщение Kendall Graveman is surrounded by new faces while he travel
MESA Denard Span Jersey , Ariz. (AP) — to the majors.Graveman signed a one-year contract with the Chicago Cubs in December after his 2018 season with Oakland was cut short by reconstructive elbow surgery. It’s a chance to use major league facilities to rehab a major injury under the care of a top-notch medical staff, but it’s also potentially awkward trying to get to know a new group of teammates without taking the field with them right away.The 28-year-old Graveman is attacking the problem with an entrepreneurial spirit, enriching himself while he bonds with the rest of Chicago’s pitching staff.“I’ve sat down and had a couple of conversations with Kyle Hendricks about the way he pitches,” Graveman said. “Been able to watch some bullpens of Cole Hamels and (Yu) Darvish and some of these guys. So I’m really in a learning process. … I’m trying to just be a sponge and soak up everything.“To get close to these guys by talking pitching and then also working hard and letting those guys know that whenever I come back and pitch I want to help this team win,” he said. “I think that means a lot and goes a long way.”Tommy John surgery is a common procedure throughout the major leagues, but working through the rehab process with a new team is unusual. Drew Smyly was in the same situation last year with the Cubs, but Trevor Rosenthal chose a different direction before signing with the Washington Nationals.It’s a chance for a patient team to bring in a potential bargain. Graveman, who started for the A’s on opening day last season, signed a $575,000, one-year contract in December that includes a $3 million club option for the 2020 season. Graveman’s 2019 salary increases to $2 million if he spends one day on Chicago’s active major league roster, and he can earn performance bonuses based on total starts.But it’s also a tricky prospect in some ways.“The makeup factor is significant when buying low on an injured player because it takes the proper work ethic http://www.marinersfanproshop.com/authentic-edgar-martinez-jersey , self-motivation, and mindset to execute a long drawn-out rehab away from the bright lights of the major league team,” Cubs president of baseball operations Theo Epstein said.Smyly has been a member of three different organizations since his last major league pitch in 2016 with Tampa Bay. He was traded to Seattle in Jan. 2017, but got hurt in spring training. After the Mariners declined to offer him a contract, he signed a $10 million, two-year contract with the Cubs.The 29-year-old Smyly had Tommy John surgery on July 6, 2017. The left-hander struck out the side in a rehab appearance in August, but the contending Cubs ran out of time to get him into a game. He was traded to Texas in November.“It’s weird going from team to team, especially when you’re injured,” Smyly said. “It’s no fun being the injured guy in the locker room, especially when you’re trying to make friends and get familiar with the team. Everything happens for a reason. And now here I am.”Smyly never considered finishing his rehab on his own.“That was a reason I signed with the Cubs, because they seemed very eager to sign me Ben Gamel Jersey , even though they traded me before I pitched for them,” he said. “But they have amazing resources over there and I knew it was a good spot for me.”Rosenthal made the All-Star team when he had a career-high 48 saves for St. Louis in 2015. But the 28-year-old right-hander had Tommy John surgery late in the 2017 season and was released by the Cardinals that November.He held a showcase for teams last October, and then finalized a $7 million, one-year deal with the Nationals in November that could be worth $30 million over two years if he becomes the closer and regularly finishes games.“Really what it was, we figured my value was going to be higher when I was healthy rather than trying to negotiate a contract when I was just fresh off the scalpel,” Rosenthal said.Rosenthal said some teams expressed interest while he was out, but he was comfortable going through the rehab process on his own. He worked out in St. Louis with Keith Sanders, a physical therapist who has helped several pitchers come back from injuries.“Everybody’s different. Everybody responds a little bit differently,” Rosenthal said. “A lot of guys like coming into a team atmosphere, having a more structured setup. For me, I do really well coordinating my own, being on my own. I really enjoyed it. It couldn’t have gone any better.” WASHINGTON — After a dominant August http://www.marinersfanproshop.com/authentic-edgar-martinez-jersey , the St. Louis Cardinals open a three-game series against the Washington Nationals looking for their first September win.The Cardinals dropped the final two games of their weekend series against the Cincinnati Reds, losing consecutive games for the first time since July 22-23.They arrive in Washington trailing the just departed Milwaukee Brewers by a half-game and the Chicago Cubs by 5 1/2 games in the National League Central. The Cardinals (76-61) had won 10 straight series.Article continues below ...A stellar pitching matchup opens the series Monday afternoon as St. Louis right-hander Jack Flaherty (8-6, 2.87 ERA) opposes right-hander Max Scherzer (16-6, 2.22).Flaherty went 4-0 in August with a 1.13 ERA and 38 strikeouts in 32 innings. Last time out he allowed one run and four hits in seven innings of a win over the Pittsburgh Pirates. He struck out five without a walk.“He’s a little different. Motivated. Works hard. Takes care of himself. I would really love to see him sustain what he’s doing for a long time,” Cardinals pitching coach Mike Maddux told the St. Louis Post Dispatch. “He’s really learning himself. And the more he learns himself, the more he likes himself, and it shows in his performance,”Scherzer, a candidate for a third straight NL Cy Young Award, is coming off two starts against Aaron Nola and the Philadelphia Phillies. He lost the first one and got a no-decision as Washington won the second. Scherzer was 2-1 during in August with a 1.89 ERA.He leads the league in strikeouts and his next one will give him 250 for the fifth straight season.Scherzer is 2-4 with a 2.70 ERA in eight starts against the Cardinals.On Sunday, the Cardinals loaded the bases with no outs in the ninth inning but failed to score, and Cincinnati’s Eugenio Suarez clubbed a two-run homer in the 10th in the Reds’ 6-4 win.“We weren’t able to execute our situational hitting where we wanted tonight Mitch Haniger Jersey ,” Cardinals manager Mike Shildt said. “It’s been a strength of our club, and we expect it to be a strength of our club. We can’t overreact to (three) at-bats.”Cardinals right fielder Jose Martinez struck out four times. He has fanned seven times in nine at-bats.“I think what we’re seeing is he’s human. Just expanding the zone, maybe trying to do a little too much,” Shildt said. “He’ll be just fine. We’ll take him up there tomorrow in the same situation. I’ll tell you that.”Washington (68-69) couldn’t build on Saturday’s come-from-behind win and lost the rubber game to Milwaukee 9-4. The Nationals walked 11 batters Sunday, matching the team record since the club moved to Washington in 2005.Nationals starter Jefry Rodriguez (2-2) issued seven walks and allowed seven runs in 4 2/3 innings as the Brewers broke the game open with a seven-run fifth.“It’s the walks,” Nationals manager Dave Martinez said. “When you fall behind, it’s tough. They got pretty good hitters.”Three games into a 10-game homestand, the Nationals are 8 1/2 games behind the first-place Atlanta Braves with 25 games to play and eight back in the wild-card race.“You never give in to the game,” Nationals second baseman Wilmer Difo told the Washington Post. “Today, it didn’t happen for us, but it wasn’t because we changed our mindset or approach at all. It’s not always going to happen.”
