The Philadelphia Phillies have placed right-hander Vince Velasquez on the 10-day disabled list with a bruised forearm a day after he made a dazzling throw with his left hand.
Velasquez was hit just below the elbow on a liner back up the middle by Washington’s Adam Eaton in the second inning Saturday. He picked up the ball and threw it left-handed to first base to get the final out. He then went down Cheap Carlton Davis Jersey , riling in pain and clutching his right arm.
”I feel a lot better than yesterday,” Velasquez told reporters Sunday. ”A lot more movement going on and just continue doing my work stuff that I need to do, lower half, and then continue to doing my core and all that stuff I need to do and go from there.”
This is the fourth trip to the disabled list for Velasquez in his three seasons with Philadelphia.
Also Sunday, the Phillies reinstated right-handed reliever Pat Neshek from the 10-day DL, recalled righty Jake Thompson from Triple-A Lehigh Valley and optioned left-hander Zac Curtis to Lehigh Valley.
Neshek, who was re-signed by the Phillies during the offseason, had been on the disabled list since opening day with a forearm injury.
>YAWN!That seems to be the reaction from everywhere except New England when Pro Picks has asked folks about the prospect of the Patriots being in yet another Super Bowl.Apparently, they have become the team people love to hate: America’s Team they ain’t.And they care not a bit about their popularity, or about what they’ve already achieved.“I think it’s a mistake if you take anything we’ve ever done in the past and translate it to what we’re doing now Cheap Taven Bryan Jersey ,” left tackle Nate Solder says.“I think it’s a different story. We’re writing our own story this year, so what we’re doing is preparing to see the Jacksonville team of this year and how we’re going to beat them and be as ready as we can go to play our best football.”That might elicit more yawns, but it’s indicative of how things work in Foxborough.But there’s a sneaking suspicion that the Patriots (14-3) are well aware of what All-Pro safety Jalen Ramsey of the Jaguars (12-6) has been saying about Sunday’s AFC championship game, in which host New England is a 9-point choice. Ramsey guaranteed a Jacksonville victory.“I think what I have learned for a long time is it’s how you play, it’s not what you say,” Tom Brady said during his weekly radio appearance on WEEI in Boston.“Everyone has different ways of handling things. Players do, coaches do. We do what works for us, other players do what works for them. The game is going to be decided by who plays the best, not who hypes the best or speaks the best.”This is a meeting of the No. 2 (Jags) and No. 5 (Pats) scoring defenses in the league. It’s also a meeting of Brady against Blake Bortles.Enough said.YAWN!PATRIOTS, 31-16Minnesota (minus 3) at PhiladelphiaNo shortage of attention here after both of these teams went down to the wire to advance.This one figures to come down to defense: Minnesota allowed the fewest points in the NFL Josh Gordon Jersey , 252, while Philadelphia was fourth stingiest.That could mean it will be decided by the pass rush, and each team has some dynamic sack threats. The Eagles’ Fletcher Cox was sensational against Atlanta last weekend, and is complemented by Brandon Graham, Derek Barnett and Chris Long. For the Vikings, it’s Everson Griffen and Danielle Hunter causing problems.“We don’t want to steer away from nothing different than what we do,” Graham says, “and we’re going to go out there and we’re going to wreak havoc. We’re going to go out there and give it everything because it’s the championship, baby.”Philadelphia last made the Super Bowl for the 2004 season, losing to New England. The Vikings haven’t been in the big game since 鈥?get this 鈥?1977 Mike McGlinchey Jersey Youth , their fourth loss in as many tries.That’s ancient history, of course. After what’s been dubbed the “Minneapolis Miracle” that lifted them past New Orleans last Sunday, they believe anything is possible.If they do things right.“What matters is how we play on Sunday, how we execute today in practice, how we do those things,” coach Mike Zimmer says. “I feel like I have a pretty smart, level-headed football team. They understand the magnitude of things and they know what’s at stake, so let’s just go out, let’s continue to do what we’ve been doing all year long, let’s play good Mike McGlinchey 49ers Jersey , let’s play together as a team, take care of the football. All of the things you talk about all year long, really.”As they say in politics, this one is too close to call. So going with the hosts.EAGLES, 21-20_2017 RECORD:Last week: Against spread (3-1).
