A look at what’s happening around the majors today:
The Nationals open a series against Miami hoping to end a five-game skid and get back to .500. Washington fell to 42-43 with a loss to Boston on Wednesday Alan Page Jersey , the first time the preseason NL East favorites have been under .500 this late in the year since being 60-61 on Aug. 21, 2015. The Nationals held a players’ only meeting after a 3-0 loss to the Red Sox highlighted by Adam Eaton’s throwing error and a wild pitch from Ryan Madson. Jeremy Hellickson (2-1, 2.63) makes his second start since returning from the DL, while Marlins righty Pablo Lopez (1-0, 3.00) makes his second MLB start.
NOT VERY VERLANDER
Justin Verlander (9-4, 2.12) tries to stop a personal slide when the Astros open a series against the White Sox. Verlander has allowed nine runs in 11 2/3 innings over his past two starts, taking losses to Toronto (four runs) and Tampa Bay (five runs). Verlander hasn’t allowed four or more earned runs in three straight starts since June 2014 while with Detroit. Carlos Rodon (1-3, 4.55) is up for Chicago.
Johnny Cueto is expected to be reinstated from the disabled list and pitch when the Giants open a four-game series against the Cardinals. Cueto was placed on the disabled list May 1 with inflammation in his right elbow. A few days later Howie Long Jersey , he visited Dr. James Andrews, who diagnosed him with a strained elbow. Cueto is 3-0 with a 0.84 ERA in five starts this season. The Giants are 41-21 in his starts since he joined the team in 2016.
Angels rookie Jaime Barria will start against AL West-leading Seattle in place of Tyler Skaggs a day after the left-hander went on the DL with a thigh strain. Barria is making his 12th start of the season and has given up two earned runs or fewer in four of his last five starts. Lefty Marco Gonzales (8-5, 3.77) makes his first start since pitching the first complete game of his career in a 4-1 win over Kansas City.
Joe Mauer needs one double to give him 415 in his career, which would break a tie with Hall of Famer Kirby Puckett for the Twins’ franchise record. Minnesota has lost six straight and returns home from a 1-8 trip to play Baltimore, which has the worst record in the majors at 24-61. More good news for the scuffling Twins: Two-time All-Star Ervin Santana (right middle finger surgery) is scheduled to make his next rehab appearance for Class A Fort Myers.
LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — Roquan Smith wore a smile on his face, and a Chicago Bears uniform for the first time since training camp started.
The Bears on Tuesday got a first look at their first-round round draft pick 30 days after he was supposed to report with rookies for camp. Both sides quickly sought to put the stalemate in the past.
“It’s a great feeling just to be back out here with my teammates, getting back into rhythm Seth Roberts Jersey ,” Smith said. “So it’s an awesome feeling.”
Drafted by general manager Ryan Pace No. 8 overall, the Georgia linebacker had been the last unsigned pick of the 2018 NFL draft.
Smith settled on a four-year contract that guarantees $18.5 million and includes an $11.5 million signing bonus, a person familiar with the talks told The Associated Press. The person spoke Monday night on condition of anonymity because the deal had not been announced.
The sticking point reportedly had been the agent’s insistence on protection for Smith regarding guaranteed money.
“That’s between my agents and Mr. Pace,” Smith said. “So that was something that they had to deal with, and we got it all figured out.”
The Bears immediately put Smith to work at Halas Hall. The team worked out at one of their new practice fields before leaving for Denver to practice and play against the Broncos. He practiced with the first and second team during an unpadded workout.
Smith missed all of their practices at Bourbonnais. So now it’s a matter of catching up.
“We understand that he’s a very driven individual, both on and off the field,” coach Matt Nagy said. “And I know he’s going to do everything he possibly can to catch up. … It’s good for him to get back in shape and take some hits.”
Smith will practice in Denver, but Nagy said it’s too soon to say whether he’ll play Saturday.
Smith said he’s in shape after working out on his own in Georgia during the holdout.
“I was training pretty hard down in Athens Phil Simms Jersey , back at school,” he said.
Coaches will closely watch Smith during practice the next few days to avoid injuries.
“Now it’s going to naturally pick up when you go against another team,” Nagy said. “But I’m not worried about it with Roquan. I know that he’ll be ready for that, as the rest of our guys will.”
As an inside linebacker, Smith is responsible for defensive play calls. He has tried to stay familiar with the defense through video and the playbook.
“I think you’ve got to look at it more as position-specific and that middle linebacker spot is a spot that has a lot of calls,” Nagy said. “So it’s one thing to be able to be in your books and see it, and see it on video. It’s another thing to be out there on the field and doing it.
“So for him, because he plays that position Weston Richburg Jersey , there might be a little more catching up to do than per se a corner or somewhere else.”
Nagy expects defensive coordinator Vic Fangio to throw as much of the defense at the rookie as possible.
“If you take too many baby steps and you don’t test him enough, then you don’t know what his limit is,” Nagy said. “So I think you go ahead and you throw stuff at him.
“I think right now we have to make sure physically you don’t overdo it. Mentally, he’s fine. We can pull back on that but physically don’t overdo it.”
Smith said he remained close with teammates through texts. Neither he nor the team believes the holdout will have a lasting effect.
“I think we’re all big boys in this thing and we understand what goes on and the ultimate ending right now is that he’s here,” Nagy said. “We understand that He’s got a lot of work to catch up, he knows that.”
