Post subject: The series between the Chicago White Sox Post Posted: Fri Jan 11, 2019 1:59 am
BALTIMORE — and the Baltimore Orioles will provide a glimpse into the future for both franchises. The Orioles began a full rebuild of the franchise in July when they traded several key veterans http://www.stlouiscardinalsteamshop.com/authentic-stan-musial-jersey , including All-Star shortstop Manny Machado and closer Zach Britton. This has allowed the team to get a look at several younger players.Chicago has also promoted numerous minor leaguers to provide them with an opportunity to shine at the major league level. The White Sox are confident that some of these players are ready to make an immediate impact.Article continues below ...“When you have depth in the organization and there’s competition for roles in your position, you don’t have time to let down,” Chicago manager Rick Renteria said. “There’s an edge that you have to develop in order to be able to compete.” The White Sox (57-89) snapped a seven-game skid with a 4-2 victory over the Kansas City Royals in 12 innings Wednesday night. They enjoyed a day off before heading to Baltimore. The Orioles avoided a three-game sweep at the hands of the Oakland Athletics with a 5-3 victory Thursday night. Baltimore (42-104) also snapped a six-game losing streak. “It’s always this time of the year you wonder about (running out of gas), you worry about it, especially with young guys who are pitching in the time of year they’ve never pitched before, most of them,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. “But there’s a different type of toll it takes sometimes. That’s also part of the evaluation of some of the young pitchers. You’re looking for that guy who can do certain things this time of year.” So far, Baltimore has 14 players who made their major league debut this season Roger Maris Jersey , tying the franchise record set in 1955. The Orioles keep that trend going this weekend and rookie Luis Ortiz will make his debut as a starter in the opener against Chicago. Ortiz was part of a July trade with Milwaukee for second baseman Jonathan Schoop.Baltimore is dealing with a couple key injuries with Andrew Cashner (knee) and Alex Cobb (blister) expected to miss at least their next start. The Orioles are expected to bring up another pitcher this weekend for depth. “I look at it as a chance to see some other people we wouldn’t have, OK?” Showalter said. “I really do.”Chicago will counter with James Shields (6-16, 4.58 ERA). The right-hander needs 13 1/3 innings for his 10th career season with at least 200 innings pitched. He is 11-8 with a 3.85 ERA in 28 starts versus Baltimore, including 7-2, 3.81 in 13 outings at Camden Yards.Shields took the loss in his last outing against the Los Angeles Angels, allowing six and nine hits in 4 1/3 innings. “I didn’t really feel strong in the bullpen,” he said after the game. “It was just one of those days where you don’t have very good stuff. I wish I would’ve went deeper in the game, but unfortunately that’s the way it goes sometimes.”White Sox third baseman Yoan Moncada was held out of the lineup with a sore hip in the finale against the Royals http://www.stlouiscardinalsteamshop.com/authentic-matt-carpenter-jersey , but should be available against the Orioles. Infielder Matt Davidson also has been held out of the lineup with “sore knees” and his status for the weekend is uncertain. OAKLAND, Calif. — The New York Yankees look to take a giant step toward hosting the American League wild-card game when they go for a second straight win against the Oakland Athletics on Wednesday night.After the A’s (83-57) gained a game in the wild-card race with a 6-3 victory in the series opener Monday, the Yankees (87-52) rode the strong pitching of J.A. Happ and their Aroldis Chapman-less bullpen to a 5-1 victory Tuesday night that restored their 4 1/2-game lead.A Yankees win Wednesday would not only allow them to win the series 2-1 and the season series 4-2, but also put them 5 1/2 games up with 22 to play.Article continues below ...New York will send right-hander Luis Severino (17-6, 3.32 ERA) after the important win, while Oakland counters with righty Mike Fiers (10-6, 3.3Cool in what could be a preview of the pitching matchup should the clubs meet again in the single-elimination October affair.Severino dominated the A’s in an earlier matchup this season in New York, allowing one run and five hits in six innings. He struck out the heart of the Oakland order — Jed Lowrie Tim McCarver Jersey , Khris Davis, Matt Olson and Matt Chapman — in succession bridging the first and second innings.The 24-year-old has pitched once previously in Oakland and did not get a decision, giving up four runs in six innings in a 7-6 loss in June 2017.All told, he’s 1-0 with a 3.50 ERA in three career starts against the A’s.The A’s managed two hits off Happ on Tuesday, one being Stephen Piscotty’s 22nd home run of the season.Piscotty will take the field for the series finale riding a seven-game hitting streak, with four home runs and 11 RBIs over that stretch.He’s never faced Severino in his career.Fiers, meanwhile, will be looking to keep the A’s unbeaten in his starts since being acquired from Detroit last month. He’s 3-0 http://www.stlouiscardinalsteamshop.com/authentic-lou-brock-jersey , with Oakland having gone 5-0 with the new staff ace on the mound.The 33-year-old split a pair of decisions against the Yankees earlier this season while with the Tigers, allowing a total of seven earned runs in 11 1/3 innings. Aaron Hicks has homered twice off him this season and Giancarlo Stanton once.Fiers has started five times against the Yankees in his career, going 1-1 with a 5.54 ERA.The Yankees feel so good about their situation, much of their attention was focused on Tuesday’s pregame festivities.Aaron Judge, who suffered a broken right wrist July 26, put on a loud show in the underground batting cages in Oakland for the second straight day.“I really didn’t feel too much of anything,” Judge said of the pain. “It’s still broken, so there is some soreness that comes with that. But for the most part Ken Boyer Jersey , I’m feeling great.”The Yankees hope to get Judge back by mid-month. Well before that, they expect shortstop Didi Gregorius to return from his bruised left heel.He took grounders and ran the bases Tuesday, with his sights set on a return Friday night in Seattle.
