Cardinals pitcher Miles Mikolas was removed from the National League’s active roster for the All-Star Game next Tuesday because he is scheduled to start Sunday for St. Louis against the Cincinnati Reds.
Los Angeles Dodgers right-hander Ross Stripling was added to the NL pitching staff Wednesday as Mikolas’ replacement.
Mikolas is 10-3 with a 2.65 ERA and was selected to his first All-Star team last weekend. The 29-year-old right-hander is enjoying a resurgent season in the majors following three years in Japan.
”He understands how important it is to give us our best shot on Sunday Geoff Swaim Jersey ,” Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said. ”He’s got to pitch (Sunday). And that’s what he wants to do.”
Mikolas will still receive full All-Star honors in Washington.
”There’s always the potential that you go there and don’t play,” Matheny added. ”It’s just the honor more than anything – and the experience. It will be a great experience for him.”
Stripling also has been a big surprise since stepping into an injury-depleted rotation for the Dodgers. He is 7-2 with a 2.22 ERA in 24 games, including 13 starts. In his third big league season Jaylon Smith Jersey , he has 103 strikeouts and only 13 walks in 89 1/3 innings.
In February, Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham sent a tweet that suggested he’d be OK with playing zero snaps in the preseason.
Beckham later said that people shouldn’t take things so seriously, but it remains to be seen when and if he’ll play in games this summer. Beckham and the Giants have been practicing with the Lions this week Cooper Kupp Jersey , however, and Beckham said on Thursday that working against another team has been beneficial as he returns from last year’s fractured ankle.
“I’m really just trying to get back to the best that I possibly can be,” Beckham said Josh Reynolds Jersey , via NJ.com. “So to get out there and work some of the techniques, work on some of the things you’ve been working on against somebody else, it was a good confidence-builder.”
Beckham’s confidence may not rely on the words of others Will Richardson Jersey , but he got a good review from Lions cornerback Darius Slay after their first day working against each other.
Beckham said that he and coach Pat Shurmur have discussed a plan for each week of the preseason. What that plan is for Friday’s game isn’t clear, but Beckham said he “can’t really shy away from [work] right now” if he’s going to be ready for the season.
