13 giugno 2019 • Under: Servizi


Friday is the first day in the rest of Josh Hader’s season.The Brewers, losers of six straight going into the All-Star break, come out of it three games back of the first-place Cubs and trying to tamp down the controversy surrounding Hader’s controversial old tweets, uncovered Tuesday night.Hader, 24, will be Lenny Dykstra Jersey required by MLB to complete sensitivity training and participate in the league’s diversity and inclusion initiatives over theracist, anti-gayand misogynistic tweetsposted in 2011 and ’12.Here are three quick takeaways to get you up to speed ahead of the Brewers’ 8:10 p.m. ET game against the Dodgers (hello, Manny Machado!) in Milwaukee: Even before Friday’s game, Hader will be busy. Heis scheduled to meet early Friday afternoon with MLB executive Billy Bean, Brewers GM David Stearns, manager Craig Counsell.He has a job to do, and being a former player, I know his biggest concern is communicating with his teammates,” Bean, vice president and special a sistant to MLB Commi sioner Rob Manfred, told USA Today. He will have to talk to his teammates, and they will have to play together.” Then he’ll addre s his teammates. It won’t be a quick “my bad” moment, Stearns says (via The A sociated Pre s).”He’s going to have to work very hard to re-earn the trust of some people who may question who he is right now,” Stearns said. “I think I know who Josh Hader is, and I personally do not believe that these comments represent who he is as a person.” Teammates were shocked by the tweets, but appear willing to forgive and forget(via the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel).I was shocked. Definitely stunned by the things that were said, said Keon Broxton, one of four African American teammates on the Brewers. But knowing him the last couple years, it’s kind of hard to even see him saying something like that. It’s definitely a complete shock.I didn’t know him when he was 17, or whenever those tweets were, but knowing him now, I don’t think he feels the same way or was using those words in a way to bash on the African-American culture.I know the guy, I love him. He’s a great teammate. He’s been a great friend to me. It’s very shocking to see this happen.

Memo to Brandon Belt: Don’t run on Yasiel Puig.We’re probably closer to really, finally, for real this time, finding out what kind of hitter the Dodgers right fielder will be. He entered Monday’s gamebatting .239 with four home runs this season. With Miguel Cabrera Jersey that, his rookie campaign seems more and more of an aberration.But one thing is certain about the one-time Cuban sensation: his arm still fires lasers. MORE: Nine stars who could break out in 2017On the fly, just up the third-base line. Belt out at home. A defensive marvel Puig is not, but fun to watch he most certainly is.Puig has been a pretty solid defender for his career. In 2016, he finished with seven defensive runs saved and six a sists in 95 games. This season, he’s off to a bit of a rocky start in the outfield, but it’s Nick Castellanos Jersey early.The to s kept the game 1-0, Giants, and more than certainly will haunt the dreams of Belt for the rest of his playing days.But really, don’t run on Puig. That’s just silly.
