#1 Eloy Jimenez admits he was pressing in his bid von zhangzk 28.04.2019 04:17

GLENDALE Roy Halladay Jersey , Ariz. (AP) — to make the opening day roster of the Chicago White Sox.“I accept it and I’m going to work hard,” Jimenez said Saturday of his demotion to minor league camp earlier in the week. “I tried to compete. They gave me the chance to be the best player I can be.”“I tried to do too much. I think that’s why I don’t have the good results,” he said.Jimenez, the centerpiece of a trade made in 2017 that sent pitcher Jose Quintana across town to the Cubs, has been the subject of speculation as to his arrival in the big leagues.The 22-year-old outfielder, ranked as the No. 3 prospect overall by Baseball America and MLB.com, wasn’t called up a year ago despite a monster season split between Double-A Birmingham and Triple-A Charlotte — where he’ll start the 2019 season. He hit a combined .337 with 22 homers and 28 doubles in 456 at-bats.He will likely get the major league call in late April, at which time the White Sox will gain an extra season of contract control over him because of service time.This spring, Jimenez hit .154 with two doubles and a home run in Cactus League play. He struck out nine times and did not draw a walk, going 4 for 26 overall.Manager Rick Renteria said making the move on Wednesday, with two weeks left in spring training http://www.bluejaysfanproshop.com/authentic-curtis-granderson-jersey , should allow Jimenez to get his timing down. That was something Jimenez said was an issue for the first time in his young career.“We want him to get as many at-bats as possible, continue to work out in the outfield,” Renteria said. “Here we were doing approximately every other day or every third day, and he needs to get his timing back on track.”Ervin Santana, meanwhile, pitched in a minor league game Friday against San Diego and is lined up to start on Wednesday against Arizona.“It was very good,” Santana said Saturday. “It was fun, doing what I love to do.”Santana, a late signee who is likely to join the White Sox rotation early in the season if all goes well, threw five innings and faced Manny Machado five times in the simulated game.“It was fun, you know. I go Roberto Osuna Jersey , ‘You, every time I have to face you?’ He’s like, ‘Yep.’ I got a broken bat, a couple groundballs and two flyballs. He’s getting his timing, I’m getting my timing,” Santana said.The 36-year-old Santana was an All-Star in 2017 when he posted a 3.28 ERA and helped the Minnesota Twins to a surprise berth in the AL wild-card game. But a finger injury derailed last season, limiting him to 24 innings.The right-hander said he is pain-free this spring.“I feel like myself again. I don’t have any restrictions,” he said.

There it is. I just wrote it.Jon Morosi also chipped in with some Redsy news at MLB.com, this time that the Reds are likely out on the overpriced Patrick Corbin http://www.bluejaysfanproshop.com/authentic-curtis-granderson-jersey , instead setting their eyes on a pair of Cleveland hurlers in Corey Kluber and Trevor Bauer. Hmm. In a way, I’m actually so bowled over by the Reds continuing to actually, y’know, be connected with trying to land some of the best pitchers in all of baseball that the concept of it actually being the right idea has begun to elude me. Corey Kluber is amazing. He’d be a phenomenal upgrade. He’d require an absolute haul, and that concerns me. But Corey Kluber is amazing, and he’d be a phenomenal upgrade, one that would require a haul so absolutely grandiose that it concerns me. Meanwhile, if the Reds big move this offseason is trading for Trevor Bauer, rip both my hands off and smack me with them.Finally, our blog friends at Redleg Nation are in the midst of a big ol’ transition, with blog founder Chad Dotson stepping aside and Doug Gray taking the reins. Congrats to Chad on a great Paul Molitor Jersey , great run, and I’m certainly happy to hear that he still plans on contributing from time to time going forward. Also, I’m excited to see how Doug continues moving RN forward, as they’ve been providing quality, exploratory pieces on the Reds for a damn long time now, and have somehow managed to do so with a minuscule level of snark that I find almost impossible to fathom (clearly). That’s quite the admirable accomplishment.
