Avisail Garcia returns to Kevin Pillar Jersey White Sox lineup

OAKLAND — After five days out of the lineup, Avisail Garcia was back in the White Sox lineup Tuesday afternoon, going 1-for-4 and playing right field in a 7-6 loss to the A’s at the Coliseum.

“Happy, happy to be back,” Garcia said.Personalized Seahawks Jersey

As he was icing his knee after the game, Garcia said, “I can do anything that I need to do in the field, but I need to get ice and need to get treatment every day Kevin Pillar Jersey until I get way better. I’m OK.”

In the bottom of the first, Garcia got involved right away as A’s leadoff hitter Matt Joyce hit a routine fly ball to right, which Garcia caught with ease. He said
Men’s Majestic Flexbase Authentic 11 Kevin Pillar Toronto Blue Jays Alternate Royal Blue Jersey he laughed about getting tested right away, adding, “Baseball is like that sometimes.”

Then, leading off the top of the second, Garcia swung at the first pitch A’s starter Daniel Gossett threw and roped a single to center. His presence back in the lineup was a welcome sight for manager Rick Renteria.

“It was nice to see him back out there. [It’s nice] anytime you lose one of your big guys and you finally get him back Kevin Pillar Jersey For Sale out Custom Rams Jersey there,” Renteria said. “To see him back out there was good. We’ll see how he recovers, we’ll monitor that and see how he’s doing tomorrow.”

The lone White Sox player named to the 2017 All-Star Game presented Custom Seahawks Jersey by Mastercard, Garcia had been out since June 29 with left knee soreness. While Garcia stressed the importance of being careful with his knee on Monday, Renteria was encouraged by his progress before the White Sox 7-2 win over the A’s.

“We need to make sure we check off all the boxes and make sure he’s good to go,” Renteria said. “He took some fly balls and some work out in the outfield yesterday, and he also ran the bases with spikes on, which is what we wanted to see him do.”

Garcia earned the American League All-Star spot by hitting .317 with 11 homers and 51 RBIs, nearly matching his full-season totals in homers and RBIs from the last two years. First baseman and fellow middle-of-the-order hitter Jose Abreu says he’s seen Garcia be stronger mentally this season.

“The mental part is very important, especially in this game,” Abreu said. “If you are strong enough, you’re going to have success. It’s a very tough sport. He has been that way this year, and we as a White Sox organization and as teammates love that because we all know what he is capable of. This year, he has finally shown that.”

Worth noting

• Infielder Tyler Saladino (back spasms) went 1-for-3 as the designated hitter for
Youth Nike Seattle Seahawks NFL Elite Away White Custom Jersey Cheap Triple-A Charlotte in the first game of a rehab assignment Monday night. He’s been out since May 27.

• Right-handed starter Miguel Gonzalez (right shoulder A/C joint inflammation) is expected to begin a rehab assignment in the coming days after being placed on the DL June 15.

Michael Kopech excited for Future Game Men’s Majestic Flexbase Authentic 11 Kevin Pillar Toronto Blue Jays Alternate Royal Blue Jersey

CHICAGO — Although Michael Kopech has yet to throw a pitch above the Double-A level, the right-hander with the 100-mph fastball already has surpassed Chris
Men’s Majestic Flexbase Authentic 11 Kevin Pillar Toronto Blue Jays Alternate Royal Blue Jersey Sale in one particular honor.

Kopech, whom MLBPipeline.com ranks as the No. 11 prospect overall and No. 2 in the White Sox system, will take part in the SiriusXM Futures Game today at 3 p.m. CT at Marlins Park in Miami, which can be viewed live on MLB Network and MLB.com. Second baseman Yoan Moncada, the No. 1 prospect overall per MLBPipeline, and catcher Zack Collins (No. 68 overall, No. 7 White Sox) also represent the White Sox in the contest.

Sale actually reached the Majors two months after he was drafted by the White Sox in 2010 and never looked back, so he had no chance to participate in this special game. But for the short term, as the White Sox rebuild around high-end Kevin Pillar Jersey prospects such as Kopech, he will be loosely tied to the American League’s top starting pitcher as part of the same impactful five-player
Men’s Nike Custom Made St. Louis Rams Elite Navy Blue Team Color Jersey for Sale trade with Boston from this past December.

“It’s hard not to keep up with him of late considering he’s striking out everyone he faces,” Kopech told MLB.com about Sale during a recent phone interview. “That’s pretty cool, because my goal last year was to be in the position he is now with the Red Sox.

“My Custom Rams Jersey goal this year is to be in the position he used to be with the White Sox. It’s a guy that’s fun for me to watch because I can imagine
Youth Nike Seattle Seahawks NFL Elite Away White Custom Jersey Cheap myself in his shoes.”

Through 16 Personalize Rams Jersey starts and 78 1/3 innings with Double-A Birmingham, the 21-year-old Kopech has fanned 101 and given up 56 hits. He also has walked 53 with an ERA of 4.02, including 21 earned runs allowed over his last 25 1/3 innings.

But this 2017 campaign for Kopech centers more upon becoming a well-rounded pitcher, a lesson the uber-talented Sale learned at the big league level. It’s about not throwing so many fastballs in hitter’s counts for Kopech or not Kevin Pillar Jersey For Sale throwing so many fastballs with runners in scoring position. It’s about mixing Personalized Seahawks Jersey in the changeup when necessary.

“With the fastball that I have, I don’t always need a changeup. But there are times where I get carried away,” Kopech said. “I’ve got to the point where I’m forcing myself to throw it now. It’s making me a more glorified pitcher and a complete pitcher.”

“He’s at a level now where the pitchability factor is going to become more important,” White Sox director of player development Chris Getz said. “But still going into the year, our plan was more, ‘OK, let’s get the innings under the belt,’ and obviously the natural development of his understanding how important it is to pitch with the weapons he has versus more [throwing] was, we felt, the natural part of being exposed to Double-A.”

Getz took part in the Futures game as a player, as did current White Sox such as Yolmer Sanchez and Matt Davidson. Now it’s Kopech’s chance to represent the White Sox in his first All-Star environment.

“I’m excited about the way the year is going so far, but I’m not satisfied, if that makes sense,” Kopech said. “I’m extremely grateful for the opportunity I’ve had, but every day is an opportunity to get better and that’s what I’m trying to do.”

Franklin Barreto HR gives A’s Kevin Pillar Jersey walk-off vs. Sox

OAKLAND — Rookie Franklin Barreto took teammate Yonder Alonso’s advice to heart, making good on an early-inning conversation with a walk-off home run that propelled the A’s to a 7-6 victory over the White Sox at the Coliseum on Tuesday afternoon, snapping their six-game losing streak.Men’s Majestic Flexbase Authentic 11 Kevin Pillar Toronto Blue Jays Alternate Royal Blue Jersey.

Barreto’s day, which also included an RBI triple, began with a strikeout, after which Alonso took him aside in the dugout and told him he was a tad tardy with his swing. By the time Barreto stepped to the plate in the ninth inning — after the White Sox had tied the game against Santiago Casilla on a Melky Cabrera single — he had made the adjustment, connecting on the eighth pitch he saw from right-hander Tommy Kahnle and sending it just beyond the left-field wall.

Full Game Coverage

“I made really good contact, and I felt it,” Barreto said, through team interpreter Juan Dorado. “Luckily, it did go over the fence. It’s always been a dream of mine to help the team win, and I finally got to realize that today.”

“If you watch that at-bat unfold, he got more and more confident as it went along,” A’s manager Bob Melvin said. “Typically, that’ll happen when you’re seeing some pitches, fouling some balls off. For younger players, sometimes the big leagues can make you think twice, then you get into a position like that and
Women’s Toronto Blue Jays Kevin Pillar Majestic Scarlet Fashion Canada Day Red Flex Base Authentic Jersey hit a home run like he did, I know he’s going to feel a lot more confident and comfortable tomorrow.”

It was the second career home run for Barreto, who also homered in his big league debut in Chicago last weekend, and the fourth home run of the day for the A’s, who got two from newly named first-time All-Star Alonso in the thrilling victory.

It marked the third career multi-homer game — all of them coming this season — for Alonso, whose home run total reached 19 following Tuesday’s go-ahead shots in consecutive at-bats against White Sox right-hander James Shields. Matt Joyce also homered for Oakland, a two-run, game-tying blast in the third in response to Cabrera’s two-run homer in the opening half of the inning.

Following a two-run fourth highlighted by Alonso’s first homer, Chicago temporarily regained the lead against Oakland starter Daniel Gossett in the fifth on a three-run blast off the bat of Jose Abreu. But Alonso put the A’s right back on top, 6-5, with a two-out, two-run knock in the bottom half of the frame, sending Shields out of the game right after White Sox manager Rick Renteria had come out to talk to him.

“He just said I got the next guy. I told him I was good to go, and it’s on me,” Shields said. “I left the ball up to Alonso. I need to do a better job out there of getting out. The fact that he had the faith in me, I need to do my job, bottom
Youth Nike Seattle Seahawks NFL Elite Away White Custom Jersey Cheap line.”

• Avisail plays nine in return to lineup

Rookies chip in: The A’s have essentially lived and died by the long ball this year, and six of their seven runs tallied Tuesday came courtesy of home runs. But in a one-run game, Barreto’s two-out RBI triple in the fourth inning proved to be a difference-maker. The add-on run was set up by fellow rookie Jaycob Brugman’s walk. Both youngsters have fared well against Shields, who yielded first career homers to both players last weekend in Chicago.

“We were talking a little bit in the beginning of the game after his first at-bat, trying to give him a few pointers,” Alonso said of Barreto. “He’s special. He took it all in, made the adjustment, and then you saw what he did.”

Sigh of relief: Ryan Madson’s doings in the seventh inning were paramount to Oakland’s victory. The Kevin Pillar Jersey veteran reliever inherited a baserunner with no outs as the White Sox turned their lineup over, and he squashed the threat with ease. After Omar Narvaez advanced to third on Adam Engel’s sacrifice bunt, Madson turned his attention to the two men who homered earlier in the day, striking out Cabrera and knocking down a comebacker from Abreu for the third out to maintain the one-run lead. Lefty Sean Doolittle pitched a scoreless eighth, ahead of Kevin Pillar Jersey For Sale Casilla’s ninth-inning adventures.

“There’s no room for error when these guys come in in those situations Personalized Seahawks Jersey,” Melvin said. “Right away, Madson has to come in with somebody on base. The bullpen pitched well today.”

QUOTABLE Custom Seahawks Jersey
“Tip your cap to the kid over there because he battled him and put a really good at-bat together. Ended up getting a pitch he could handle that he ended up driving pretty well and it got out. Tip your cap because that’s just baseball.” — Renteria, on Barreto

White Sox: For the White Sox, right-hander Mike Pelfrey will start Wednesday’s 2:35 p.m. CT series finale before the team travels to Denver. Pelfrey (3-6, 4.13) is coming off of a rough outing against the Rangers June 30, when he allowed five runs in five innings.

A’s: The A’s will send right-hander Sonny Gray to the mound for Wednesday’s 12:35 p.m. PT series finale matchup with the White Sox. Gray has a 1.20 ERA over his last two starts.

Evan Skoug not frustrated by late Draft pick

CHICAGO — Take a look at MLBPipeline.com’s list of the Top 200 Prospects heading into the 2017 MLB Draft, and Evan Skoug’s name pops up at 48.

So being selected in the seventh round by the White Sox, at No. 207 overall, could serve as a source of consternation for the left-handed hitting catcher from TCU, or provide the ultimate chip on his shoulder.

Full Game Coverage

Instead Skoug was nothing but positive when speaking recently to Kevin Pillar Jersey For Sale after signing with the team and receiving an over-slot $300,000 bonus.

• Complete 2017 MLB Draft coverage

“I’ve been trying to look [at the] glass-half-full side. At some point, you Kevin Pillar Jersey need to let it go anyways,” Skoug said. “It doesn’t matter where you start. It’s where you finish.

“So yeah, it wasn’t Custom Seahawks Jersey what I expected, but I’m going to do my best to get up quickly and show the 206 picks before me that I was the real deal. At the end of the day, I’m just thankful for the opportunity that one of the teams took a chance on me and just really thankful for the White Sox giving me the opportunity.

“I’ll do my best to work my butt off,” Skoug said. “I want to make sure I represent the White Sox at a world-class level, to make sure this is a pick they are going to really enjoy for hopefully a long time.”

As a player at Libertyville High School, situated 45 minutes north of Guaranteed Rate Field, Skoug only had collegiate interest from TCU, Santa Clara, the Air Force and Vanderbilt before the Commodores pulled out. That situation worked out well for the 2017 co-Big 12 Player of the Year.

Skoug’s home runs jumped from 16 combined in his first two seasons with TCU to 20 as a junior, while driving in 71. Skoug also went from 97 strikeouts combined in those same two years (against 62 walks) to 98 in ’17, which might have affected his Draft status.

“Early in the year, if you cut that part out of my season, my numbers are completely different at the end,” Skoug said. “I was getting away from the basics and putting myself in a position where I physically couldn’t make contact with the baseball. My track record says I don’t do that very often.”

Here’s a little more insight into Skoug: The 5-foot-11, 200-pound catcher’s baseball allegiance fell with neither the Cubs nor the White Sox. He was born in Kalamazoo, Mich., and was a Yankees fan because of hometown sensation Derek Jeter.

“He was my idol. He was my guy,” said Skoug Personalize Rams Jersey, who has spent 10 years in Libertyville, Ill., with his family. “As I moved over here, it was more of just rooting for players, not really specific teams.”

Allegiances have changed for the career .286 hitter with an .869 OPS as part of the Horned Frogs. A position switch eventually could be possible for Skoug, who is ready to do whatever it takes to get the Majors. But he has the confidence to stay at catcher, now and in the future, and the White Sox feel the same way.

“It’s part of a dream come true,” said Skoug, who thanked his parents, older brother and older sister for helping Custom Rams Jersey him get to this level. “The real dream come true is making the big leagues.”

Neymar: Customized Seattle Seahawks Jersey I won’t die if I don’t win Ballon d’Or

BARCELONA – Barcelona forward Neymar “is not going to die” if he fails to win the FIFA Ballon d’Or and says he plays the game to be happy, not for individual
Customized Seattle Seahawks Jersey honors.Men’s Nike Custom Made Dallas Cowboys Elite Team Color Navy Blue NFL Football Jersey.

In an interview published on the official La Liga website on Sunday, Neymar said he was unconcerned at not being named as one of three finalists for football’s highest individual award this year.

“It’s obvious that [the Ballon d’Or] is a source of motivation, but I’m not going to
Custom Seahawks Jersey die if I don’t win it,” the 24-year-old Brazilian said.
Women’s Nike Dallas Cowboys Customized Elite Away White NFL Football Jersey..

Neymar was a Ballon d’Or finalist for the first time last year, eventually missing out to teammate Lionel Messi, who claimed the prize for a fifth time.

The 2016 award will be contested by Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Antoine
Men’s Nike Custom Made Seattle Seahawks College Navy Blue Team Color NFL Football Jersey Sale Griezmann, with the winner to be announced next month.

“Above all I want to be happy and at Barcelona I’m happy,” Neymar said. “If I don’t win the Ballon d’Or nothing will change. I don’t play football for that. I play to be happy. Only one player can win it.”

Neymar said Barcelona are upbeat about their chances of winning La Liga this
Custom Cowboys Jersey season, despite being three points behind Real Madrid, who also have a game in hand.

“There is still a long way to go,” the former Santos prodigy said. “We are just focused on our matches. We can’t be worried about Real Madrid. Last year we were 11 points ahead of second but we only won the league in the last match of the season. It’s a tough competition and every game is difficult.”

Of his relationship with fellow Blaugrana forwards Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez, Neymar said: “We are creating history and we are getting better. We want to be
Youth Nike Seattle Seahawks NFL Elite Away White Custom Jersey Cheap
happy on the pitch and stay together.

“It’s a big pleasure and a little bit strange because we are Brazilian, Argentinian and Uruguayan. We’re rivals in international football but we have a great friendship. We’re always joking around with each other. It makes me very happy to have people like that in football.”

The Barcelona No. 11 also had the highest praise for teammate Andres Iniesta,
Customized Dallas Cowboys Jersey who he believes is peerless in world football.

“Andres [Iniesta] is the best midfielder I have ever seen, for his quality, for everything,” Neymar said. “He’s incomparable because he’s very, very different. Andres has an elegance and a classiness that distinguishes him from the rest.”

Customized Seattle Seahawks Jersey Hong Kong bans poultry products from southeastern Sweden

HONG KONG — The Hong Kong food safety authority said on Friday that it has
Customized Seattle Seahawks Jersey banned the import of poultry products from a bird flu-hit island in southeastern Sweden.Men’s Nike Custom Made Dallas Cowboys Elite Team Color Navy Blue NFL Football Jersey.

The ban, with immediate effect, is on the import of both poultry meat and eggs,

Training camp report date: Rookies and veterans, July 28.

Training camp location: Quest Diagnostics Training Center, East Rutherford,
Men’s Nike Seattle Seahawks NFL Elite Away White Custom Jersey Cheap,New Jersey.

Offseason in a nutshell: For the second time in three offseasons, the Giants were
Personalized NFL Football Jersey one of the NFL’s biggest spenders in free agency, which says one (or both) of the following:

1) The Giants recognize that Eli Manning is 35, and the team is likely looking at a four-year window to win his third Super Bowl.
2) The roster, chipped and cracked over the last four seasons following the 2011 Super Bowl run, entered this offseason lacking playoff-caliber playmakers at
Women’s Nike Custom Made Seattle Seahawks College Navy Blue Team Color NFL Football Jersey Sale important positions, especially on defense.

Combine these two factors, and you get a team that spends an astounding $85 million on Olivier Vernon, not to mention $62.5 million on Janoris Jenkins and
Custom Seahawks Jersey $46.25 million on Damon Harrison.

Player to watch: Wide receiver Sterling Shepard. The Giants’ second-round pick probably has the best chance of any player in their rookie class to make an immediate impact. Following the draft, team brass repeatedly compared Shepard to old favorite Victor Cruz — a rangy, versatile pass catcher who can excel in the slot or outside. Because Cruz’s health is the great unknown, and there is still no telling if he can return to form, Shepard is the great hope to make Ben McAdoo’s transported Packer offense come alive. This is the key to unlocking not only a more dependable intermediate passing game, but the full potential of Odell Beckham Jr., a player who has almost single-handedly carried this offense for each of the past two seasons.


1. How will Damon Harrison transition into a 4-3 defense?

Harrison was one of the NFL’s best space-eaters with the Jets — a prototypical 3-4 nose who had the ability to create a two-car pileup on every play. With the Giants, he is paired with another hefty tackle, former second-round pick Johnathan Hankins, and two very different rush ends in Jason Pierre-Pauland Olivier Vernon. While it seems like an odd cast of characters, it’s important to realize how little theGiants actually will be in their base defense. Harrison has been insisting for years that he can bump down or outside, purported versatility that’d give the Giants a nice option on passing downs in case they cannot switch personnel. Harrison has always been insanely athletic for his size (listed at 6-

foot-4, 350 pounds), but can he also be insanely athletic for his new position?

2. Who wins the safety battle?

Giants fans have been familiar with this question for quite some time. This year,
Customized Seattle Seahawks Jersey the competition is for the safety spot opposite 2015 second-round pick Landon Collins, an ascending player who needs to have a much better season than he did in 2015. The contestants are Nat Berhe, Bennett Jackson andDarian Thompson, with Cooper Taylor as a possible dark-horse candidate, should injuries play a factor. While it’s not as cut-and-dried as free safety and strong safety, the Giants need to find the right fit to pair with Collins — and it might come down to relationships. In watching Big Blue’s secondary on film last year, the back end of the defense often looked like an NBA fast break, with two people trying to cover three offensive players while having no clue where each other were headed.Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, Janoris Jenkins and first-round pick Eli Apple could be the best set of corners — 1 through 3 — the team has had in half a decade. But without help over the top, there is no complete package on defense.

3. Does Andre Williams break out?

The Giants are fixing to keep four running backs at this point, though they would love a sensible, first- and second-down back to emerge from training camp. Rashad Jennings would seem to be that person, with Shane Vereen slotting in as the third-down back — but the Giants could wiggle out of Jennings’ deal and save a little more than $1 million against the cap if they felt like it. That would have to involve a boffo summer from Williams, the former Heisman finalist who went to New York in the fourth round of the 2014 NFL Draft. Tom Coughlin thought he’d be selected two rounds earlier, but we quickly saw why the Boston College product slipped. As a rookie, Williams carried the ball 217 times for 721 yards — just 3.3 yards per carry — though he did score seven touchdowns. In Year 2, that number dropped to 88 carries (at just 2.9 yards a pop) and one touchdown. His catch rate also dropped to 33 percent. Still, McAdoo talked him up this summer, saying that a breakout season is on the way. Is that just another offseason trope whispered into the void?

Way-too-early season prediction: One instinct tells us that the Giants and Cowboys both will rise back to the top of the NFC East, and that Big Blue can easily win nine games this year. However, another tells us to be wary of teams who spend big in free agency — and that, below the exterior sheen, there exists a
Men’s Nike Seattle Seahawks Personalized Elite Alternate Gray Football Jersey Shirt pronounced lack of depth. The Redskins are better than they have been sinceRobert Griffin III’s rookie season, meaning wins will be tougher to come by. At this point, 8-8 might be the safest bet of all.
