By Bill Plunkett | [email protected] | Orange County RegisterPUBLISHED: March 17, 2019 at 1:16 pm | UPDATED: March 17, 2019 at 1:17 pm GLENDALE, Ariz. – Corey Seager will be ready to play for the Dodgers on Opening Day, according to their manager. “Absolutely. We expect him to play Opening Day,” Dave Roberts said Sunday. “I am (confident of that). I just think in talking to the training staff and talking to Corey himself – we’ve been conservative, understandably. I just don’t see any reason why he wouldn’t be ready for Opening Day.” Seager’s 2018 season ended on April 29. He underwent Tommy John surgery on his right elbow in May and arthroscopic surgery on his left hip in August. He continued his recovery by taking at-bats in a minor-league game again on Sunday. He is expected to play shortstop for seven innings in a minor-league game on Monday and play in a Cactus League game with the Dodgers at some point this week. … [Read more...] about Corey Seager will play Opening Day, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts says

Bobby Nightengale Cincinnati Enquirer Published 8:50 PM EST Feb 5, 2019 Editor’s note: With Spring Training approaching, we’ll answer an important question about the Cincinnati Reds each day until pitchers and catchers report Feb. 12. Today’s question: Who will be the Opening Day starter? There’s no question that the Reds improved their starting rotation through three offseason trades. Sonny Gray, Alex Wood and Tanner Roark are all expected to bring stability and they instantly created more depth. But none of them would be classified as an ace. Combine the trio of newcomers with Luis Castillo and Anthony DeSclafani for the leading group of candidates to open the season in the five-man rotation. Who will receive the Opening Day nod? Gray is probably the early leader. The Reds have already shown their confidence in Gray, agreeing to a three-year, $30.5 million contract extension as a part of their trade with the New York Yankees. Gray was a two-time Opening … [Read more...] about Reds questions: Who will be the Opening Day starter?
NEW YORK (AP) — The New York Yankees host Baltimore and Washington is at home against the New York Mets on March 28, the first games of the earliest regular major league opening day. The commissioner's office announced games times Wednesday for the schedule, which was released in August. The previous earliest regular start was March 30 in 2003, 2008 and 2014. The season opens with a two-game series between Seattle and Oakland in Tokyo on March 20-21, MLB's fifth opener in Japan after 2000, 2004, 2008 and 2012. MLB also has opened in Monterrey, Mexico (1999), San Juan, Puerto Rico (2001) and Sydney, Australia (2014). All 30 teams are scheduled for opening day for the second straight year. Two games were postponed on opening day last season because of weather. Baltimore and the Mets are scheduled for first pitches at 12:05 p.m. CST, followed by St. Louis at Milwaukee (1:10 p.m.); Atlanta at Philadelphia (2:05 p.m.); Detroit at Toronto (2:37 p.m.); Houston at Tampa Bay (3 p.m.); the … [Read more...] about Orioles-Yanks, Mets-Nats start MLB’s regular opening day
Posted November 02, 2018 at 06:05 AM | Updated November 02, 2018 at 06:05 AM Image.jpg Associated Press Randy Miller | NJ Advance Media for NJ.com With Gardner back, there’s probably no room on the roster for Harper with the Yankees outfield situation back to what it was for much of 2018 when they carried only right fielder Aaron Judge, center fielder Aaron Hicks, DH/corner outfielder Giancarlo Stanton and Gardner. Also, the Yankees expect Clint Frazier and Jacoby Ellsbury to be healthy next season and options to crack the roster as a fifth outfielder. Frazier missed most of the season due to a spring training concussion and in-season post-concussion symptoms, while Ellsbury sat out all of 2018 due to several injuries, including August hip surgery. What’s next for the Yankees? Harper almost certainly will end up somewhere else (unless the Yankees sign him and trade Stanton, which is beyond unlikely), but managing partner Hal Steinbrenner still can do a … [Read more...] about Projecting Yankees’ 2019 Opening Day lineup, roster if they spend big 2.0
Bobby Nightengale Cincinnati Enquirer Published 6:39 p.m. UTC Aug 22, 2018 MILWAUKEE – Cincinnati's favorite holiday is back in one piece. Major League Baseball released the 2019 schedule Wednesday afternoon and the Findlay Market Opening Day Parade will be held on the same day as the Opening Day game against the Pittsburgh Pirates on March 28. The two events were separated this season, much to fans' dismay. Similar to past years, the Cincinnati Reds will have an off-day Friday before completing their first series on March 30-31. Opening Day will kick off the 100th Findlay Market parade and the Reds community fund block party. On April 13-14, the Reds will play a two-game series against the St. Louis Cardinals in Mexico. The games will be played at Estadio de Béisbol Monterrey, a Mexican League stadium. The Reds will lose two home games at Great American Ball Park as a part of the international games. It'll be the Reds' second time in franchise history … [Read more...] about Cincinnati Reds Opening Day game and parade reunited next season
