Rafael Devers Jersey

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Yankees slugger Aaron Judge took on-field batting practice Monday for the first time since breaking his right wrist July 26.The five-round session included home runs to all fields by the 2017 AL Rookie of the Year.“It went really well. Another big step for him to get out on the field Rafael Devers Jersey ,” said manager Aaron Boone, who called the performance “putting on a show.”Judge is second on the team with 26 home runs and has 61 RBIs while hitting .285 in 99 games. He’s also struck out 137 times in 372 at-bats.Judge took indoor batting practice the last two days in Seattle and said Sunday the wrist still hurts. He did not speak to media before Monday’s game in Minnesota.Assuming Judge feels good Tuesday, Boone said he anticipates Judge taking more swings, potentially during group batting practice.Boone cannot put a timetable on when Judge could be back in the lineup.“We’re not at that point to where we’re going to throw him in the games yet or something,” he said. “We just want to get through these next couple days where he starts ramping up the amount of swings out on the field and continues to build that momentum.” WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Hall of Famer Craig Biggio hopes increased labor tension doesn’t lead to Major League Baseball’s first work stoppage in a quarter century.“Hopefully ownership knows and players know that nothing good’s going to come of it http://www.redsoxproshops.com/authentic-j.-d.-martinez-jersey ,” Biggio said Tuesday at Houston Astros training camp, where he will serve as a guest instructor for the next week.Baseball’s labor contract runs through 2021. Players have increasingly complained about the second straight slow free-agent market, and their union has proposed major economic changes mid-agreement. Stars Bryce Harper, Manny Machado, Craig Kimbrel and Dallas Keuchel remain unsigned with spring training underway.During his 20-year career with the Astros, Biggio was part of the 32-day lockout during spring training in 1990 that led to the season starting a week late and the 7½-month strike in 1994-95 that caused the first cancellation of the World Series in nine decades.“Hopefully calmer heads prevail when they get into these conversations and negotiations and you don’t ever have something like what happened to us when we lost the World Series David Ross Jersey , because that was probably the worst thing that could ever happen,” Biggio said.Among former Astros, utilityman Marwin Gonzalez and designated hitter Evan Gattis also remain unsigned. They teamed with Keuchel to help Houston win its first World Series title in 2017.“You want to be with a team,” Biggio said. “You want to be somewhere and you want to be part of the chemistry and see who your teammates are and stuff like that. Hopefully the guys that aren’t with a team yet get a team quickly.”Second baseman Jose Altuve (knee) and third baseman Alex Bregman (elbow) reported to spring training following offseason surgery. Shortstop Carlos Correa (back) and outfielder George Springer (thumb) also are healthier than they were at the end of last season.“Altuve, Correa, Bregman Steve Cishek Jersey , the guys that are coming back that we’re just going to gently ease into the daily schedule, are all doing well,” manager A.J. Hinch said.Bregman this week fielded balls and threw across the diamond on consecutive days for the first time since surgery. The 2018 All-Star game MVP has taken batting practice in a cage but has not faced pitchers on a field. He is not expected to play in a spring training game until mid-March.“I’ve got a long way to go with my swing right now,” Bregman said. “Other than that, my body feels great, which is most important right now.”Bregman expects to be on the field when the Astros open March 28 at Tampa Bay.“There’s no doubt in my mind Drew Smyly Jersey ,” Bregman said. “I might be ready for tonight.”
