The Texans officially announced that they have their full draft class under contract on Friday and also released the names of the 13 undrafted rookies that have signed with the team.
Dell Curry Womens Jersey The group includes three offensive linemen as the Texans continue to retool their unit after disappointing results last season. One player they hope will deliver is K.J. Malone, who played left tackle at LSU and is the son of NBA great Karl Malone. The Texans list him as a guard, so he will be switching positions while trying to earn a spot on the Houston roster.
Sweeping the Padres last week gave the Dodgers their first series win of the season, but perhaps even better news was seeing struggling closer Kenley Jansen nail down a save on Saturday night against the Nationals. Further good news? Justin Turner started hitting off a tee as he continues to come back from a broken wrist, while Rich Hill should be back from the DL as soon as the Dodgers need a fifth starter again this week. They’re not clicking on all cylinders yet, but they’re getting there. — Kahrl
Harold Baines Womens Jersey The Phillies have been one of the hottest teams in baseball. Since getting off to a 1-4 start, they’ve gone 13-3, the best record in the majors since April 5. Their plus-52 run differential in that span is second to only the Red Sox (plus-57), and no other team is even close — the next-best run Patrick Beverley Jersey differential in that span is the Astros at plus-37. It helps that the Phillies also have a 2.25 ERA in that span, third best in the majors. — Langs
When one of his coaches asked the guy’s name, Ichiro replied: Some guy named Tom Brady. Who the f鈥?is Tom Brady?
As deadpan responses go, it ranks up there with Bill Belichick’s description of Brady’s playoff thumb injury, when he said: But, we’re not talking about open-heart surgery here.
And even though he’s hanging up his cleats for the rest of the season, 31 other teams in the NFL now have a new favorite baseball player.
The Angels finally experienced some adversity last week — they were outscored 27-3 in a three-game sweep at the hands of the Red Sox. Shohei Ohtani also left his start early in that series because of a blister on his pitching hand. The good news is that Mike Trout is on a 60-homer pace, Albert Pujols is closing in on 3,000 hits and Ohtani is expected to be ready to start this week. — Paul Casella, ESPN Stats & Information
