Here’s a look at what’s happening around the major leagues today:
Mets star Jacob deGrom is expected to start at Miami. He was a late scratch Friday night because of what the team called a family issue – no doubt Joe Berger Jersey , many fans around the country thought deGrom might’ve been traded when they saw the ace had been pulled. DeGrom (5-3) leads the majors with a 1.69 ERA. He’ll face Marlins righty Pablo Lopez, making his big league debut.
Red Sox ace Chris Sale will try to extend his hex over slugger Aaron Judge when they meet at Yankee Stadium in the middle matchup of a three-game series. Sale has struck out the New York slugger more than any other pitcher – Judge has fanned 10 times in 15 at-bats against the lefty. Judge has three hits, including a home run, off Sale.
Bartolo Colon tries for his 245th career victory Ben Gedeon Jersey , which would tie Dennis Martinez for the most by a pitcher from Latin America. The 45-year-old Colon (4-5, 4.72 ERA) starts at home for Texas against White Sox lefty Carlos Rodon.
MONTH OF MAHLE
Reds rookie Tyler Mahle (6-6) tries to complete an undefeated month when he faces the first-place Milwaukee Brewers. The 23-year-old righty is 3-0 in five June starts with a 2.30 ERA. He’s been Cincinnati’s best young pitcher, leading NL rookies in wins. Milwaukee goes with Jhoulys Chacin (6-3).
Washington righty Jeremy Hellickson (2-0, 2.28) is expected to return from the disabled list to start at Philadelphia. He has been sidelined since June 4 with a right hamstring strain. He’s hoping for the same burst the Nationals enjoyed Friday night at Citizens Bank Park Jason Spriggs Jersey , when they hit seven homers in a 17-7 romp.
It didn’t take Nate Solder, Alec Ogletree or Michael Thomas long to make their mark on the Giants. The team’s players and coaches voted on captains, and Solder, Ogletree and Thomas were three of the six.
Eli Manning Danny Shelton Jersey , Landon Collins and Zak DeOssie were the others.
It marks Manning’s 12th consecutive season and DeOssie鈥檚 eighth as Giants captains.
Ogletree served as a captain with the Rams last season.
鈥淲e feel good about the leadership of our team,鈥?Giants coach Pat Shurmur said, via Michael Eisen of the team website. 鈥淲e feel like the players and coaches have chosen well, and we look forward to having these captains lead us through the 2018 season.鈥?/p>
The Giants have not had more than three captains since 2014 when they had five.
