An MRI taken Mo

Nepřečtený příspěvekod elaine95 » 8. Srpen 2018, 05:55

The Indians caught a lucky break. Carlos Carrasco is only bruised.

An MRI taken Monday revealed that Cleveland’s steady starter only suffered a bruised right elbow when he was struck by a vicious line drive on Saturday against Minnesota.

”We dodged a huge bullet DJ Chark Color Rush Jersey ,” said relieved Indians manager Terry Francona.

Carrasco, who has previously sustained serious injuries after being hit by comebackers, will be treated for swelling over the next 48 hours before being evaluated on Wednesday.

At this point, it’s expected that Carrasco will return to the rotation and mound once his stint on the disabled list ends.

”He still got hit really hard and there’s some trauma,” Francona said before the Indians opened a three-game series with the Chicago White Sox. ”The hope would be, once he gets the swelling out of there, that he’ll come quick because it’s a bruise and it could have been a lot worse.”

In the second inning on Saturday, Twins star Joe Mauer hit a line drive that Carrasco couldn’t avoid. The 31-year-old, who has been one of the AL’s most consistent pitchers the past three seasons Tremaine Edmunds Color Rush Jersey , braced himself before absorbing the liner. He was forced to leave the game and taken to the hospital.

Carrrasco has a history of being hit on the mound. He was struck in the face in 2015 and then missed the 2016 playoffs after breaking his hand, a blow that left the Indians short one of their top pitchers during their run to the World Series.

But despite Carrasco’s track record of being a target, Francona isn’t worried about the 31-year-old showing any jitters when he pitches.

”He’s been hit before and you think, `OK will it bother him?”’ Francona said. ”He’s been hit before so I think he’s champing at the bit to get this out of there and start pitching again. It’s easy to tell him, `Hey, don’t worry about it.’ I’m not the one standing out there.

”This is fourth time, and I’ve never seen any ill effects before and I don’t anticipate any going forward. I think he’s just glad that it’s a bruise and see how quick he can get better.”

Francona chalked up Carrasco’s mound misfortune to bad luck.

”I do think there are pitchers that put themselves in a position where they are not able to field their position, but Carlos is fine,” Francona said. ”He lands flat and he’s in a really good position Robbie Grossman Minnesota Twins Jersey , most of the time. The fact that he could get his hand up and kind of block it and not hit somewhere else.”




With the best regular-season record in the NBA all locked up, the Houston Rockets have begun looking ahead to the playoffs.

The Rockets still have two games remaining before postseason play begins next week, however, and they don’t plan on taking any chances against the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday night at Staples Center.

Those who are healthy will play at least some against the Lakers, but the Rockets (64-16) will likely keep shooting guard Eric Gordon and stretch forward Ryan Anderson on the bench as they recover from ankle injuries.

“We’re going to be very careful with whoever plays, let’s put it that way,” Rockets coach Mike D’Antoni told the Houston Chronicle. “When we play, we’re going to play hard. It might be for three quarters, it might be for a half Cheap Baker Mayfield Jersey , it might be for a quarter. That will be determined.

“Most guys want to play. If somebody needs a break, we’ll give him one, but we’ll be very careful about how much we play.”

Houston forward James Harden seems like a lock to win his first NBA scoring title. He’s averaging 30.6 points, though he has only bettered that mark once in the past eight games. He’s third in the NBA at 8.7 assists after leading the league in that category last season (11.2).

Winning individual awards means little to Harden at this point of his career, however.

“The ultimate goal is holding that trophy up,” Harden said. “So until we do that, there’s no celebrations. … We haven’t done anything yet.”

Los Angeles (34-46) will be playing its final home game of the season.

The Lakers will miss the playoffs for the fifth straight season, but there’s plenty of optimism heading into the offseason.

The player generating the most excitement lately is rookie shooting guard Josh Hart, who’s coming off back-to-back 20-point games for the first time this season.

Hart had 20 points and 10 rebounds in a 113-96 loss to the visiting Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday night http://www.cowboysauthorizedshops.com/authentic-dorance-armstrong-jr.-jersey , and then came back with 25 points on 10-of-18 shooting in a 112-97 loss to the Utah Jazz on Sunday.

“Throughout the season, every time he gets the opportunity to play big minutes or have a bigger role, he has been pretty good for us,” Lakers coach Luke Walton told reporters after the game against Utah. “He is one of our best finishers, he’s one of our best rebounders, and he can push it in transition.”

Hart started in place of another rookie on Sunday. Kyle Kuzma missed the game after spraining an ankle against Minnesota. Los Angeles was also without rookie point guard Lonzo Ball (knee) and forward Brandon Ingram (concussion protocol).

“He’s done a nice job of figuring out what the NBA game is about,” Walton said. “I think he’s another one of those guys that’s going to have a big offseason, now that he’s gotten to experience guarding James Harden, guarding other teams’ best players Blake McLaughlin Ducks Jersey , elite scorers, and also figured out where he can get his shots.”

Hart scored a season-high 26 points against the Rockets on Dec. 31, going 9 of 13 from the field in a 148-142 loss in Houston.
