Jacoby Ellsbury’s latest ailment is plantar fasciitis, and it is preventing the New York Yankees outfielder from fully resuming baseball activities.
Limited Mens Rees Odhiambo Jersey The 34-year-old center fielder has been on the disabled list since the start of the season. He did not play in any exhibition games from March 1 until March 24 because of an oblique injury, and he finished spring training 1-for-14.
Boone said the team believes the oblique issue that started this string of injuries has passed. After being evaluated by a hip specialist in New York last week, the backup outfielder is back at the Yankees’ facility in Tampa, Florida, where he has been limited to some work off the batting tee and a little throwing.
Sending Pierre-Paul to Tampa Bay means the last remaining defensive link to the most recent Super Bowl triumph gets to continue his career in his home state. The Giants get back the Bucs’ third-round draft pick (69 overall) and the teams swapped fourth-round picks, the Giants obtaining the 108th overall pick, moving down six spots.
What this does is give the Giants four of the first 69 picks in the draft 鈥?Nos. 2, 34, 66 and 69 鈥?and certainly opens the door to take defensive end Bradley Chubb with the second-overall pick on April 26.
The Post reported the Giants will rate Chubb, along with Jason Kelce Jersey running back Saquon Barkley and guard Quenton Nelson, as the top three players in this draft 鈥?ahead of all the quarterback prospects. All three are in play for the Giants. There also might be scenarios where the Giants can trade down and still get one of their three top-rated prospects.
Hiram Bithorn has a reputation for being a homer-friendly venue, but the numbers don’t bear it out. In 47 major league games played there — 43 of them being Montreal Expos home games in 2003-04, three being Florida Marlins home games in 2010 and one being the 2001 regular-season opener between the Texas Rangers and Toronto Blue Jays — the venue has seen .258/.322/.409 hitting rates (.151 ISO) with per-game averages of 8.9 runs scored and 2.3 home runs. By comparison — and the homer-happy offensive environment does influence these — last season, 27 of 30 major league stadiums saw greater isolated power, 21 saw a greater home run average and 20 saw a greater runs-per-game average.
Game Briean Boddy-Calhoun Jersey Joey Lucchesi (L), rostered in 18 percent of ESPN leagues, San Diego Padres vs. San Francisco Giants: Lucchesi has been impressive, striking out 16 with just four walks to open his career. The 25-year-old southpaw is set up well to keep the early momentum while facing an improved but still scuffling Giants lineup with pitcher-friendly Petco Park at his back.
