The Red Sox reached a settlement with Jenks and released him on July 3, two weeks before he finished rehab, according to court documents. The DUI charges were settled in December, and Jenks was required to complete a substance-abuse program as part of his probation.

Trading Rick Porcello would be a mistake

content_img

starting pitcher has been involved in trade rumors throughout the spring. The latest is that the and are “active” in talks on Porcello, . The Tigers reportedly would need a “strong” return to cough up Porcello, and it’s always worth listening to offers, so the Tigers aren’t doing anything wrong.

Yet.

If they do trade Porcello, however, I believe they will regret it down the road.

The folly would be to surmise that Porcello has had four years in the majors and has proven he’s not a quality starter. He was 10-12 with a 4.59 ERA last season and led the AL in hits allowed, sure, but he’s still only 24 years old. History is lined with both l tactical advice to the players.Ronaldo is now owner Real Valladolid, while Berlusconi controls Monza.”Why did you never make a goal from the corner? It’s so easy,” Ronaldo claimed Berlusconi said.“Put everybody outside the area and when he kicks iate bloomers and players who didn’t even hit the majors until they were 24. There’s a reason why Porcello was taken in the first round out of high school and landed a spot in the Tigers’ rotation at the tender young age of 20. He’s incredibly talented.

And we nue to grow.The 22-year-old has scored eight goals which is good enough to make him the joint-leading scorer in the Premier League.Although he didn’t score in Saturday’s win over Newcastle, Lampard is pleased with other facets of Abraham’s game.Lampamight just be seeing the start of something special this spring.

This obviously comes with a huge caveat. Spring stats for the most part don’t mean much. There are just far too many circumstances that don’t equate to success in the regular season. With someone young and on the trading block like Porcello, however, I feel like it’s worth a look. And he has a 2.50 ERA, 0.78 WHIP and 18 strikeouts in 18 innings this spring. Oh, and zero walks. That’s right. Eighteen strikeouts and zero walks in 18 spring innings.

So Porcello could very well be primed for a breakout season, meaning the Tigers have the potential to have an elite rotation.

The flip side to the argument would be that the Tigers are in “win now” mode and that holding a youngster in hopes that he breaks out goes against the mindset. I’d offer up two items in rebuttal:

1. Porcello is the fifth starter. Not a prospect. 2. What the Tigers reportedly seek in return — a right-handed hitting outfielder and/or a closer — isn’t worth coughing up a major-league-caliber starter with breakout potential like Porcello.

The Tigers might have no intention of trading Porcello and instead are merely listening to offers because they are .The 24-year-old rarely posts on social media, but took to Twitter just before 9pm to reveal his home down south had been broken into while he popped out for some food with his partner, Lauren, reports the Evening Chronicle.Hayden had been spending tgetting them. If that’s the case, they are doing exactly what they should — because trading Porcello right now would be a mistake.

Mets’ Wright says goal is opening day, but can’t guarantee it

PORT ST. LUCIE — star said his goal is to play opening day. It’s too early to guarantee it, though.

“That’s looking to predict the future,” said Wright, who returned to Mets camp after trips to both the WBC and the doctor. “I can’t do that. I won’t do that. … Obviously the goal of mine is to be ready for opening day. But first things first, and that’s getting the pain out of my side.”

Wright came out of the WBC with what’s being called a moderate strain of the left y Blind has been diagnosed with a heart condition after suffering from dizziness during the Champions League game against Valencia on 10 December.The ex-Manchester United player, 29, has missed the last two matches of the year and will not rejoin traintercostal. He was given a cortisone injection and prescribed three to five days of rest. He said the shot may take a few days to work. “It’s not nearly as bad as it was,” he said, “but I can still feel it.”

Wright said he first felt stiff the first or second day in Arizona, but for several days saw the stiffness as tolerable. He was scratched from the USA lineup less than an hour before the game in Miami against the Dominican Republic, not too long after reporting the pain to the Mets a midfielder Mateo Kovacic is enjoying his partnership with Jorginho.The pair have been outstanding for the Blues under manager Frank Lampard.”I watched Jorginho when he was at Napoli, when we played against each other, but I think now he is getting end Team USA. “If I can still play my game, I’m going to try to play through it,” he said. “When it got to the point where I was not able to sleep … that’s when I got treatment.”

Wright said he tries to play through tweaks and bruises, whether he’s in spring training, the WBC or regular-season games. “If I needed to call somebody everytime I felt something, I wouldn’t play too many games,” he said.

He doesn’t blame the WBC. “Playing ball, there’s some risk that comes along with that,” he said.

When Wright started to have concern about whether the injury could affect playing real games for the Mets, that’s when he reported it and started getting treatment. And that’s when his stint in the WBC was over. He is hopeful he can make it back for the real games because he has played a lot already and is baseball-ready.

His concern, he said, is that “once this thing is knocked out, we have to keep it out.”

He did return with a new nickname, “Captain America,” for his superb play and leadership in guiding Team USA to three wins in four games before the Americans lost two straight to fall out of it without him.
