Сообщение laiyongcai92 » 01 фев 2019, 06:03

Eduardo Escobar to a three-year extension , the team announced Monday.According to the Arizona Republic's Nick Piecoro, the deal is worth $21 million.After playing for the Minnesota Twins since 2012, Escobar was traded to Arizona at the 2018 MLB non-waiver trade deadline as the Diamondbacks attempted to make a postseason push. However, the team came up short in its quest to continue playing into October.Overall in 2018, Escobar hit.272with23home runs,48doubles,threetriples and84RBI between Minnesota and Arizona. The switch-hitter posted a.268average witheighthomers,11doubles and21RBI in54games with the Diamondbacks.As valuable as Escobar's bat can be, the29-year-oldalso brings versatility in the field. He has no shortage of experience playing short, second and third, and he also has made appearances at all three outfield positions in his career. That versatility will give managerTorey Lovullo flexibility when injuries inevitably arise."We feel like he complements what we鈥檙e trying to do pretty well Gary Carter Jersey ," Arizona general manager Mike Hazen said in July, per Piecoro. "He plays a good defensive infield, (brings) versatility, experience at multiple positions, being a switch hitter (who is) dominant from the left side. We felt like given our right-handed lineup that he added a lot to that for us."Although Escobar couldn't help the Diamondbacks reach the postseason for the second consecutive year, they did see enough in him to want him to be a part of their future plans. ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — A trifecta for Joey Gallo and Rougned Odor backed an efficient seven innings by Mike Minor as the Texas Rangers won a close game after a pair of lopsided wins.Gallo and Odor both homered for the third straight game, this time in a 3-1 win over the Baltimore Orioles on Saturday night after the Rangers had scored a combined 28 runs to win each of the first two games in the series by at least eight runs.“Both of them are swinging the bat very well, seeing the baseball very well,” manager Jeff Banister said, adding that Odor has been patient at the plate and Gallo has been aggressive in the zone. Gallo hit a scorching liner into the right field seats right after Adrian Beltre started the fourth by reaching on a throwing error by third baseman Renato Nunez. His 29th homer of the season put the Rangers up 2-0 against Baltimore starter Dylan Bundy (7-10).“Getting some pitches to drive Dwight Gooden Jersey , and when he does, he drives them out of the ballpark,” Banister said.“Joey’s been really good at the plate, too, been really focused,” said Odor, who went deep in the eighth with a towering 445-foot solo shot beyond the Rangers bullpen in right-center for his 13th homer. Minor (8-6) threw 63 of his 86 pitches for strikes over seven innings. A full-time reliever last season for Kansas City after missing two whole seasons because of left shoulder surgery, the lefty struck out six without a walk while allowing one run and four hits. He is 2-0 with a 2.50 ERA his last three starts.“We’ve just kind of mixed it up, all four pitches, instead of two-pitch mix. I threw more curveballs, more changeups in and out Keith Hernandez Jersey , mixed it up pretty well,” Minor said. “I’m getting better with my pitches every week.”Bundy struck out six and walked two in his six innings. He has allowed 27 homers this season, one more than Kansas City’s Jakob Junis for the most in the majors.“I’m not happy about it at all, but it was a little bit better,” Bundy said. “I only left one ball over the plate instead of three it seems like the past two outings.”WITH THE SAVEJose Leclerc, the expected closer after Keone Kela was traded to Pittsburgh earlier this week, worked a perfect ninth for his first save in five chances.SHORT HOPSOrioles DH Mark Trumbo’s RBI single in the seventh was his 1,000th career hit . He is the 31st active player with at least 1,000 hits and 200 homers (214). … Texas SS Elvis Andrus extended the longest active hitting streak in the majors to 15 games with his double in the first. … Texas has won seven of eight overall.HONORING VLADVladimir Guerrero, whose only season with the Rangers was for their first World Series in 2010, was honored in a pregame ceremony after his induction last weekend into the Baseball Hall of Fame. Guerrero threw the ceremonial first pitch to Ivan “Pudge” Rodriguez Jorge De La Rosa Jersey , the former Rangers catcher inducted into the Hall of Fame last year.TRAINER’S ROOMOrioles: OF Craig Gentry, out since late June with a left rib fracture, could start a rehab assignment early next week. Showalter said Gentry is ahead of INF Steve Wilkerson (oblique), who initially was also set to start rehab last week. “I don’t know if I’d call it a setback,” Showalter said. “We just don’t want to push it and say well, here’s the schedule. Let’s see what the players’ bodies are telling us.”Rangers: CF Delino DeShields is on MLB’s seven-day concussion disabled list. The Rangers announced the move Saturday, more than three weeks after DeShields banged the back of his head when trying to make a sliding catch in Boston. He had been scratched from Friday’s lineup because of headaches.UP NEXTRight-hander Drew Hutchison will start the series finale for the Rangers a day after agreeing to a major league contract. The Rangers announced his signing in the eighth inning of Saturday night’s game. It will be his first big league start since 2016 with Pittsburgh. He began this season in the Phillies bullpen but was designated for assignment May 31. He rejected an outright assignment, signed a minor league deal with the Dodgers and was with Triple-A Oklahoma City before requesting and being granted his release last Tuesday.
