Sunday night in Atlanta Antworten

The Seattle Mariners are trying to juggle their present and future.Left-hander Marco Gonzales [url=http://www.athleticsfanproshop.com/authentic-glenn-hubbard-jersey]Glenn Hubbard Jersey[/url] , who has a team-leading 12 victories, was scratched from his scheduled start Sunday against Clayton Kershaw and the Los Angeles Dodgers, and his turn through the rotation was skipped to give him extra rest.He is set to return Wednesday afternoon when the Mariners play host to the Houston Astros in the finale of a three-game series.Article continues below ...The Mariners remain in the American League West race and are battling for one of the two wild-card berths, but also realize Gonzales is likely to have a prominent role beyond 2018.Though Gonzales is 12-8 with a 3.91 ERA, he’s 0-3 with a 7.94 ERA in his three starts this month. Plus, he’s already pitched 142 2/3 innings after throwing 40 in 2017. He had Tommy John surgery in 2016.“The main objective is to have a strong finish and not be crawling across the finish line at the end of the year,” Gonzales told MLB.com. “In that aspect and that lens, I’m taking it as a positive. Obviously I’m a competitor. I take it as a challenge to go out and have a strong start on Wednesday. I’m looking forward to the test.”Mariners manager Scott Servais said the extra rest for Gonzales is “something we’ve talked about for a while now.” “We gave him a pretty good break at the All-Star break. We’ll give him a couple extra days here and then we have some off days coming up, so he’ll get a couple extra days between his next start,” Servais said. “So we have a span of about 20 days where he’ll make three starts instead of four.”Gonzales said he believes his recent struggles have to do with command with his fastball and are not because he’s tiring.But he said he understood the decision to skip a start.“At the end of the day [url=http://www.athleticsfanproshop.com/authentic-rickey-henderson-jersey]Rickey Henderson Jersey[/url] , we want to win,” he said. “So as far as taking into account what it will take me to get quality starts, I think just resetting some things and coming back with a strong start after a couple days of rest, that’s good for everybody. They have my best interest in mind. I’m not taking this as they don’t believe in me or anything like that. It’s collectively, let’s figure out how we win games late in the year.”Gonzales is 0-1 with a 4.76 ERA in two career appearances (one start) against the Astros. In the only previous start against them, Gonzales suffered a 9-2 loss April 19 in Houston when he gave up three runs and five hits in 4 2/3 innings. The Astros are scheduled to start right-hander Charlie Morton (12-3, 2.78 ERA). Morton is 3-3 with a 3.16 ERA in seven career starts against Seattle, including 2-1 with a 2.37 ERA in three starts this season.Morton has not had a win since July 31. He allowed four hits and two runs in five innings in his most recent start, a 4-3 loss to Oakland on Friday, a game in which Morton did not get a decision.The Astros got reigning AL MVP Jose Altuve back from the disabled list Tuesday [url=http://www.athleticsfanproshop.com/authentic-catfish-hunter-jersey]http://www.athleticsfanproshop.com/authentic-catfish-hunter-jersey[/url] , though outfielder George Springer missed his second consecutive game with a sore left quadriceps.Altuve said he was glad to be back after missing 21 games with a sore right knee. It was his first time on the disabled list in his eight-year career.“I’m excited,” Altuve told MLB.com. “This is a great team. I know you guys know I love every single part about this team and the way they play. We’re in first place and most likely we’re going to be in the playoffs, and I have a lot of confidence in my teammates, and I just want to be a part of this.” ATLANTA (AP) — Shortstop Dansby Swanson did not participate in the Atlanta Braves‘ light workout Tuesday and appears to be a longshot to make the team’s roster for its NL Division Series against the Los Angeles Dodgers.Swanson partially tore a ligament in his left hand on a swing against the Mets’ Noah Syndergaard on Sept. 24. He had pain when he tried to swing a bat Saturday in Philadelphia and received more treatment Tuesday, remaining inside while his teammates were on the SunTrust Park field.Manager Brian Snitker paused when asked if Swanson still has a chance to play when the Braves open the NLDS on Thursday night in Los Angeles.“A chance,” Snitker said. “I don’t know how great of one, really. But we’ve had guys in situations like this who have come in the next day and been a lot better, so we’re just going to take it a day at a time.”Braves players were not available to reporters on what was officially a day off.Charlie Culberson, who excelled for the Dodgers in the 2017 postseason , would be Atlanta’s starting shortstop if Swanson does not show dramatic improvement. That would strain Atlanta’s already thin bench. Ryan Flaherty could make the roster as a backup infielder.Snitker said Culberson’s postseason experience will be “really big” because “it’s the maiden voyage for most concerned.”Culberson hit .282 with eight homers after the All-Star break this season [url=http://www.athleticsfanproshop.com/authentic-rollie-fingers-jersey]Rollie Fingers Jersey[/url] , and .270 with 12 homers overall.Swanson hit .238 with 14 homers this season, including only .213 after the break.One scenario discussed by Snitker and his staff is the possibility of keeping Swanson on the roster as a defensive replacement and pinch-runner.“We’ve got to make sure he can go over there and handle the glove and make a play,” Snitker said, adding Swanson could be forced to hit even if he were to enter a game as a defensive replacement.Snitker said he has more confidence in Lucas Duda’s recovery from a sore back. Duda, acquired from Kansas City on Aug. 29, took batting practice Tuesday and could make the roster as a left-handed pinch-hitter.Snitker confirmed Mike Foltynewicz will start Thursday night’s game. Snitker has not released the remainder of his rotation. Anibal Sanchez and Kevin Gausman could start the next two games on Friday night in Los Angeles and Sunday night in Atlanta, leaving Julio Teheran and Sean Newcomb as top candidates for a possible fourth game in Atlanta.Snitker said it “wasn’t hard at all” to pick Foltynewicz (13-10, 2.85 ERA) to lead the postseason rotation that does not include a clear-cut No. 1 starter. Foltynewicz was sharp in his last start , allowing one hit and one run in five innings in a win over the Phillies.“We’ve wanted Folty to be the guy for a couple years now,” Snitker said. “To me right now he’s the guy who has established himself as a legit first guy. … He’s pitching right now with a lot of confidence.”Foltynewicz [url=http://www.athleticsfanproshop.com/authentic-terry-steinbach-jersey]http://www.athleticsfanproshop.com/authentic-terry-steinbach-jersey[/url] , 26, ranked sixth in the NL with 202 strikeouts.An Atlanta team led by first baseman Freddie Freeman and “Baby Braves” Ronald Acuna Jr. and Ozzie Albies is entering its first postseason since 2013.“It’s just part of the journey that we’ve been looking to go on,” Snitker said. “It’s a really fun time for all of the guys involved.”This will be the first postseason as a manager for Snitker, who has been with the Braves organization since 1977, when he was a minor league player.Snitker said he has leaned on the experience of former manager Bobby Cox, the Hall of Famer who still serves as a senior adviser. Snitker said Cox’s advice was “Keep it simple. Don’t try and make it something it’s not.”“I’m kind of excited to see what it is. I’ve managed a lot of games but this is a little different,” he said. “… I don’t have any fingernails. If I had any hair, I lost it.”
