Chicago White Sox left-hander Carlos Rodon has pitched

Post by laiyongcai92 » Fri Jan 11, 2019 11:27 am

like an unmistakable ace in recent weeks.Rodon cannot afford to let up when the White Sox host the Minnesota Twins on Wednesday afternoon in the conclusion of a quick two-game home series.Top-line starters stay consistent — that’s part of being an ace.Article continues below ...The 25-year-old is 4-3 with a 2.69 ERA in 12 starts this season. In his past seven starts Authentic Christian McCaffrey Jersey , he has posted a 3-0 record with a miniscule 1.60 ERA. He is limiting hitters to a .159 average in that span.Against the Twins, Rodon is 4-2 with a 3.50 ERA in eight career appearances (seven starts).“He’s throwing the ball really, really well,” White Sox manager Rick Renteria told the Chicago Tribune after a recent outing by Rodon. “He’s … minimizing anything (the opponents) can do. His stuff is really good.“His off-speed, his breaking ball are working well. That front-door action, also. Very focused.”Chicago (47-78) will need to stay focused amid a difficult and distracting week.Renteria was hospitalized Sunday after complaining of light-headedness and has missed the past two games — although the 56-year-old skipper has been released from the hospital. His availability for Wednesday is uncertain, with bench coach Joe McEwing able to manage in his place once again if necessary.In addition, All-Star first baseman Jose Abreu (22 home runs Baker Mayfield Jersey Elite , 78 RBIs) is out for the next two weeks after undergoing outpatient surgery on his lower abdomen and groin Tuesday. The absence of Abreu leaves the White Sox without one of their biggest leaders on and off the field. His four-season streak of 30-plus homers and 100-plus RBIs is almost certain to come to an end.Minnesota (60-65) is in better shape but also has shown plenty of warts this season. However, the Twins have won six of their past eight games and are coming off a 5-2 victory over Chicago.Right-hander Kyle Gibson (7-9, 3.51 ERA) will make his 26th start for the Twins. He has won back-to-back starts while limiting opponents to four runs over his past two outings. Gibson is 6-3 with a 2.77 ERA in 12 career starts against the White Sox, and he is 0-1 with a 5.27 ERA in two starts against Chicago this season.The Twins are riding high after Eddie Rosario (one RBI) and Jorge Polanco (two RBIs) put their team on top with two outs in the top of the ninth inning Tuesday.“Polanco understands his role is to have good at bats and get hits,” Twins manager Paul Molitor recently said to The Athletic. “He’s done well with runners in scoring position. He keeps the line moving. But everyone likes to contribute power every now and then and to see one from the right side (recently) was really nice.”Both teams will head to the airport after the matinee, with the White Sox flying over Lake Michigan to face the Detroit Tigers and the Twins traveling home to host the Oakland Athletics. LAS VEGAS (AP) — Nathan Eovaldi loved what he started in Boston — emphasis on started.“There were a lot of teams that reached out, wanted me to be a closer,” he said. “I view myself as a starter http://www.billscheapshop.com/cheap-aut ... ite-jersey , and that’s something I’ve always done my entire career. And I enjoy doing that. So if I had that choice, I still wanted to be a starter.”After shifting to the bullpen for three World Series relief appearances, including an epic 97-pitch outing in an 18-inning loss , Eovaldi decided last week to stay with the Red Sox for a $68 million, four-year contract .“I can’t wait to see him again with us. He’s going to be a huge part of this rotation,” Red Sox manager Alex Cora said Monday during a winter meetings news conference. “He’s a workaholic.”Eovaldi averaged nearly 98 mph with his fastball during the regular season but reached 100 mph six times in the first two games against the Los Angeles Dodgers, not needing to hold back. That velocity intrigued teams as he became a free agent.Before October, Eovaldi’s career was most notable for a pair of Tommy John surgeries. Acquired from Tampa Bay in July http://www.pantherscheapshop.com/cheap- ... rey-jersey , the 28-year-old right-hander beat the New York Yankees in Game 3 of the Division Series, then defeated Houston in the third game of the League Championship Series and got four outs as a bridge to closer Craig Kimbrel in the Game 5 finale.Transformed to a setup man, Eovaldi twice pitched perfect eighth innings as Boston took a 2-0 World Series lead against the Dodgers.He entered Game 3 at the start of the 12th inning, Boston’s ninth pitcher of the game. Ace Chris Sale and Drew Pomeranz were the only remaining arms available.Eovaldi kept going, allowing Yasiel Puig’s tying single in the 13th and Max Muncy’s leading home run in the 18th, which gave the Dodgers a 3-2 win. Eovaldi’s effort became an emotional rallying point for the Red Sox, who won the next two nights for their fourth title in 15 seasons.“The conversations in between innings, they were cool http://www.clevelandbrownsteamonline.co ... eld-jersey ,” Cora said. “I remember the last one, when I asked him: How are you feeling? He said, ‘Let me finish it.’ He said it with a lot of conviction. I knew he was good.”Cora also remembered Eovaldi’s arrival at the Dodger Stadium breakfast room the next day.“He said he was ready for it that night — not that I was going to use him, of course. I’m not that stupid,” Cora said.Boston’s projected rotation includes Sale, David Price, Rick Porcello, Eovaldi and Eduardo Rodriguez. Sale and Porcello can become free agents after next season.“It’s going to be a juggling act over the next several of years Authentic Baker Mayfield Jersey ,” Red Sox president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski said. “We know we’re not going to be able to sign everybody, but the more stability that’s out there, the better off we are.”
