Post no doubt they will shower some on Ohtani
The Atlanta Braves may turn north to address their starting rotation ahead of the MLB non-waiver trade deadline on July 31.According to Jon Paul Morosi of MLB.com Jason Heyward Jersey , "the Braves and [Toronto] Blue Jayshave spoken about a possible [Marcus] Stroman trade, sources said Thursday, although there's no evidence of progress in those negotiations."Atlanta isn't the only team that has inquired about Stroman, according to Jon Heyman of Fancred:Jon Heyman JonHeymanseveral teams have checked in on Marcus Stroman. but strong belief is, with control to go, jays will hold onto him.Stroman, 27, is having his worst season as a pro, delivering a 3-7 record http://www.chicagocubsteamshop.com/authentic-john-lackey-jersey , 5.42 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 59 strikeouts in 73 innings. He's alsodealt withbothshoulder inflammation and shoulder fatigue over the past year.But he's still under contract with the Blue Jays through the 2020 season.So why deal him, especially given the quality he's flashed in his career?Morosi cited two factors: "This is a seller's market for starting pitchers, due to the low supply of high-end trade candidates; and the contentiousness of negotiations over Stroman's 2018 contract (which led to a salary arbitration hearing) suggests the sides may not reach a long-term deal in the near future."For an Atlanta team trailing the Philadelphia Phillies by just 1.5 games in the NL East and fighting for a playoff berth this season, adding a player like Stroman and throwing another quality arm into the rotation would make sense.One factor the Braves are surely monitoring: In this past three starts, Stroman has given up just five earned runs in 19 innings, striking out 16. And since his return from shoulder fatigue, he's given up more than three earned runs just once in six starts.If Stroman is wheeling and dealing once more, he could be a very nice addition in Atlanta. OAKLAND Ben Zobrist Jersey , Calif. — Oakland Athletics fans will get to see Shohei Ohtani one last time in 2018 at the same venue at which everyone saw him for the first time this season when the Los Angeles Angels close out a three-game series on Thursday afternoon.While Ohtani and the Angels look to win the season series from Oakland, the A’s (91-61) will be trying to avoid losing ground to the red-hot Tampa Bay Rays (85-66) in a suddenly tight race for the second wild-card playoff spot in the American League.The A’s will take the field for the afternoon affair several hours before the Rays begin a four-game road series at Toronto. Tampa Bay has won four in a row, including Saturday and Sunday against the A’s to get the Rays back in the race.Article continues below ...While A’s fans surely will save most of their applause for the home club, , the unique two-way talent whose first major league hit came on March 29 in Oakland, a single in his first at-bat against Kendall Graveman.Three days later, Ohtani recorded his first big-league pitching win, also in Oakland, when he limited the A’s to three runs in six innings in a 7-4 win.Almost six months later http://www.chicagocubsteamshop.com/authentic-anthony-rizzo-jersey , Ohtani is finishing his rookie season only as a hitter, having torn the UCL in his right elbow while pitching on Sept. 2.He completed the pitching portion of his season with a 4-2 record and 3.31 ERA.The injury hasn’t slowed Ohtani’s bat. He has recorded hits in 11 of 14 games this month, including one in each of the first two games of the Oakland series.He will take a .292 average, and a chance to hit .300, into the Angels’ final 10 games of the season.With 327 plate appearances and 10 pitching starts, he is assured of being the first major-leaguer with that combination since Babe Ruth in 1919.Ohtani has hit 6-for-23 (.261) against the A’s this season but went 0-for-3 against Thursday’s starter, right-hander Edwin Jackson, in an August game.Jackson (5-3, 3.17) will be attempting to pitch the A’s to their 14th consecutive non-losing home series. Oakland has won 11 and tied two since getting swept in a three-gamer against Houston in June.The A’s and Angels have split the first two games of their three-game set.Jackson shut out the Angels for 7 1/3 innings in a 7-0 win in Los Angeles in August. It improved his lifetime record against the Angels to 5-4 with a 3.39 ERA in 13 games Kosuke Fukudome Jersey , including 10 starts.Right-hander Matt Shoemaker (2-1, 3.98) is scheduled to pitch the series finale for the Angels.He pitched an 8-3 win over the A’s in the opening series of the season, during which the Angels took three of four. Los Angeles has retained an edge in the seasons series all year, but now clings to just an 8-7 advantage.In his career, Shoemaker has compiled a 6-2 record and 3.61 ERA in 13 games (12 starts) against Oakland.
