After reportedly losing Trevor Ariza to Phoenix, the Rockets will hang on to another sharp-shooting swingman in Gerald Green. Multiple reports have the veteran guard returning to Houston on a one-year deal. Michael Stotto of The Athletic tweeted:
Houston Rockets and Gerald Green have agreed to a one-year, $2.4 million deal, league sources told The Athletic..
Vince http://www.officialauthenticdolphinstore.com/Nike-Larry-Csonka-Jersey.html Velasquez (R), 27 percent, Philadelphia Phillies vs. Washington Nationals: Start-to-start consistency has been a problem for Velasquez. During his past 10 starts, he’s managed only five quality starts, Womens Larry Csonka Jersey and only once did they come in back-to-back games. If you’re looking for upside, though, Velasquez has it, as the right-hander’s 10.8 K/9 ranks top-10 in baseball. While Washington has an imposing lineup on paper, it hasn’t translated to production lately. Over the past 30 days, the Nationals rank dead last in the National League with a 72 wRC+ and .279 http://www.footballravensofficialauthentics.com/Javorius_Allen_Jersey wOBA. If you’re going to attack this Nats’ lineup, now is the time to strike.
Carlos Rodon (L), 20 percent, Chicago White Sox at Texas Rangers: In four starts since returning from the disabled list, Rodon holds a 3.70 ERA and 1.11 WHIP. It’s too small of a sample to draw any real conclusions, but his velocity (93.8 mph) is where it was last year (93.6 mph), which is a good sign. While that hasn’t translated to whiffs just yet (7.0 K/9), his control has been improved (2.6 BB/9). If he can start missing more bats while keeping the control gains, then we’d really have something here. On Saturday, Rodon draws a Rangers team that’s middle-of-the-road against lefties (99 wRC+) with a healthy 23.4 percent strikeout rate.
Among the most intriguing of the 2018 Draft class is Mo Bamba, the 20-year-old from Texas via Harlem, where he grew up — fast, as city kids tend to do, learning the game on the hardtops around New York City, while his parents, natives of Ivory Coast, wondered what the increasing fuss was around their son. He, on the other hand, has tended to handle the attention with aplomb and a smile. In a group full of long, tall people, Bamba still stands out, with an insane wingspan of 7-foot-10 that allows for court coverage the likes of which hasn’t been seen.
The Magic took Mohamed Bamba with the No. 6 pick in the 2018 Draft.
Bamba has been in the spotlight for a while — the Westtown (Penn.) High School team on which he played featured teammates like Cam Reddish, a blue-chip guard who’ll play for Duke next season — and played against the likes of the No. 1 pick in 2018, Authentic Javorius Allen Jersey Deandre Ayton. At Texas, he starred for Coach Shaka Smart, himself among the biggest names in the sport. After one season in Austin, where he shattered the school record for blocked shots in a season, Bamba declared for the Draft, assured he’d be a high Lottery pick. But Bamba has also shown a willingness to work on what he doesn’t — or, at least, didn’t — do that well.
