CLEVELAND — Another day http://www.newyorkjetsteamonline.com/trevon-wesco-jersey ,
another roster move involving the Cleveland Indians‘ bullpen. Prior to their 6-3
win over the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday, the Indians placed reliever Evan
Marshall on the 10-day disabled list with right elbow inflammation.
Wednesday afternoon at Progressive Field, the Indians and White Sox will play
the final game of their three-game series.
Kontos, 33, started this season with Pittsburgh, for whom he made 21 relief
appearances this year, going 2-3 with a 5.03 ERA and one save. He was designated
for assignment on May 25 and was signed as a free agent by the Indians on May
25. In six appearances with Triple-A Columbus, Kontos pitched 7 2/3 scoreless
innings, allowing seven hits, with six strikeouts and no walks.
When he gets into a game Kontos will become the 17th different relief pitcher
used by the Indians this season.
“With the new guys, we want to get them settled, and I want to familiarize
myself with them as quickly as I can Alexander
Mattison Jersey ,” said Indians manager Terry Francona, who admits
that it’s a challenge for newly-acquired pitchers to be comfortable.
Many of the relievers the Indians have used were released by other teams.
Francona says he is mindful of the pressure the new relievers face when they
join the team.
“When guys are pitching for their baseball life, it’s harder on them,”
Francona said. “When (closer) Cody Allen has a bad inning, he knows he’s going
to be here the next day. The other guys, when they have a bad inning they know
they might get sent down or designated for assignment. That makes it hard.”
Fortunately for Francona and those relievers, the Indians’ starting pitcher
Wednesday usually makes it an easy day for the bullpen. Reigning Cy Young Award
winner Corey Kluber (10-3, 2.24 ERA) will be on the mound for Cleveland.
Kluber, however, is coming off his worst start of the season in his last
outing, a 6-3 loss to Minnesota on Friday. Kluber lasted just five innings,
giving up four runs on four hits, with three strikeouts and one walk.
That one walk was significant because it snapped a streak of six
starts http://www.minnesotavikingsteamonline.com/dru-samia-jersey ,
46 1/3 innings and 169 consecutive batters faced by Kluber without a walk. The
four runs allowed by Kluber snapped his streak of 14 consecutive quality starts
to begin the season, the longest such streak by an Indians pitcher in 100
Kluber’s last start against the White Sox came on May 30 of this year, a 9-1
Cleveland victory in which Kluber got the win by pitching six scoreless innings
on three hits, with 10 strikeouts and no walks. In 21 career appearances against
the White Sox Kluber is 10-4 with a 3.05 ERA.
Kluber’s mound opponent on Wednesday was his mound opponent in that May 30
game between the two teams — Reynaldo Lopez (2-4, 3.26).
In that loss to Kluber, Lopez pitched 2 2/3 innings, giving up seven runs on
eight hits with two strikeouts and one walk.
Lopez’s last start was a 4-3 White Sox loss to Detroit on Friday. Lopez, who
did not figure in the decision, pitched six innings, allowing three runs on nine
hits with three strikeouts and no walks. In two career starts against Cleveland,
Lopez is 0-2 with an 8.31 ERA.
The Indians come into Wednesday’s game having won three in a row while the
White Sox have lost six in a row.
NEW YORK — Omaha’s loss Saturday night will be a big win for anyone who likes
watching two of the best pitchers in baseball face off against one another.
Los Angeles Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw is scheduled to make a surprising
return to the major league rotation Saturday night, when the Dodgers visit the
New York Mets in the middle game of a three-game series at Citi Field.
The Dodgers won the opener 5-2 on Friday night when Cody Bellinger’s
sixth-inning grand slam snapped a scoreless pitcher’s duel between Los Angeles
left-hander Alex Wood and Mets right-hander Zack Wheeler.
There will likely be more zeroes on the board Saturday when Kershaw (1-4,
2.76 ERA) may not even be the best pitcher to take the Citi Field mound. The
Hall of Fame-bound southpaw Daniel Jones
Jersey , who hasn’t pitched this month because of a lower back
strain, will be opposed by the hottest pitcher in baseball, Mets ace Jacob
deGrom (5-2, 1.51 ERA).
The Mets finally provided deGrom some run support in his most recent start on
Monday when he picked up a long-awaited win after allowing two runs (one earned)
in eight innings of a 12-2 victory over the Colorado Rockies.
DeGrom lowered his major league-leading ERA to 1.51 in the win. Since 2000,
only Randy Johnson (1.47 ERA in 2000) has produced a lower ERA through 15
DeGrom has a 0.90 ERA in his last 11 starts, during which he has only gone
3-2 while the Mets have gone 3-8. New York scored 16 runs while deGrom was on
the mound in his 10 starts before Monday.
“I watched (Corey) Kluber have about a 1.40 ERA for like 12 or 13 starts at
the end of one season to win a Cy Young,” said Mets manager Mickey Callaway, who
was the pitching coach for the Cleveland Indians when Kluber locked up the
American League Cy Young Award by posting a 1.42 ERA in his final 12 starts last
“But this is pretty special. You don’t see this often.”
Nor do matchups like Kershaw-deGrom happen very often. The clash Saturday
night will mark their first regular-season matchup and the second time they’ve
opposed one another.
DeGrom picked up the win in the decisive Game 5 of the 2015 National League
Division Series when he tossed seven scoreless innings in the Mets’ 3-1 win over
the Dodgers and Kershaw, who pitched on three days’ rest and took the loss after
giving up all three runs in 6 2/3 innings.
Kershaw was originally scheduled to pitch for Triple-A Oklahoma City against
Omaha, but with an uncertain weather forecast in Nebraska, the Dodgers decided
to take their chances by having him pitch for the big league team in New York,
where scattered thunderstorms are expected.
Dodgers manager Dave Roberts hinted the famously competitive Kershaw did his
share of talking his way out of the rehab start.
“He did play a little weatherman, so with weather.com and Clayton Quincy
Williams II Jersey , we were pretty abreast with the weather in
Omaha,” Roberts said with a grin Friday afternoon.
Roberts said the Dodgers will proceed carefully with Kershaw, who has made as
many trips to the disabled list as to a big league mound since May. Kershaw was
sidelined from May 2 through May 30 because of biceps tendinitis.
Kershaw was activated May 31, when he didn’t factor into the decision after
pitching through a tight back while allowing one run in five innings of the
Dodgers’ 2-1 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies. Los Angeles placed Kershaw back
on the disabled list the next day.
“We don’t know how much he’s going to pitch,” Roberts said. “I don’t want to
put a limit on him. Obviously, there is a limitation with Clayton, and I’ll make
Both pitchers will have a unique, opponent-specific streak on the line
DeGrom is 0-3 with a 3.26 ERA in six career regular-season starts against the
Dodgers. He has beaten every other team he has faced more than once.
Kershaw is 8-0 with a 1.84 ERA in 12 regular-season starts against the Mets.
He is undefeated against eight other teams but has beaten only one of those
squads, the Atlanta Braves, more than twice.
