The Cowboys are happy with the way their receiving corps looks — at least they don’t think they need Dez Bryant back in the mix.
Speaking Tuesday, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones made it clear his team is not interested in re-signing Bryant to a smaller deal after releasing him earlier this month.
Blach allowed three runs and four hits in five innings. After the game, Bochy said the left-hander suffered from food poisoning last week and was given an IV on Monday. “That was a really gutty effort that he gave us,” Bochy said.
Nationals: Placed RHP Shawn Kelley on the 10-disabled list with ulnar nerve irritation in his right elbow. Infielder/outfielder Matt Reynolds was optioned to Triple-A Syracuse and outfielder Rafael Bautista and infielder Adrian Sanchez were called up.
Nationals RHP Max Scherzer (4-1, 1.36 ERA) and Giants RHP Jeff Samardzija (1-0, 0.00) take to the mound for the series finale at AT&T Park on Wednesday. Samardzija is making his second start after beginning the season on the disabled list.
Jackson is widely expected to be the fourth or fifth quarterback off the board, falling somewhere in the bottom half of the first round, in what is one of the deepest quarterback classes in NFL history. The Patriots, who may feel the need to draft an eventual replacement for 40-year-old Tom Brady, have the No. 23 overall pick in the draft.
While many mock drafts have the Pats choosing either a linebacker or offensive lineman at that spot, they might not be able to resist a player with Jackson’s huge upside.
There’s also the possibility that the Patriots could trade a package of draft picks to move up in the first round. In addition to the No. 23 pick (which New England acquired from the Rams), the Pats own the No. 31 selection, as well as the two second-round picks (Nos. 43 and 63 overall).
One interesting mock draft in the Louisville Courier-Journal has the Patriots choosing Oklahoma State’s Mason Rudolph, with Jackson going at No. 17 to the Chargers.
Throughout the night, DeRozan did much of his work off the catch, cutting crisply off the ball, attacking in stride rather than pounding the rock into submission and spelunking through the morass of bodies awaiting him in the paint, as he did in Washington. The result was an efficient outing — 32 points on 12-for-24 shooting from the field, including a 3-for-4 night from beyond the arc and 5-for-6 from the line.
