Glen Perkins Jersey

BALTIMORE (AP) — If the Oakland Athletics are to advance in October Fernando Rodney Jersey , they’ll have to do it without Sean Manaea.Manaea, who threw a no-hitter against Boston earlier this season, joined Oakland’s list of pitchers lost to season-ending surgery when the team announced Tuesday that the lefty was done for the year because of shoulder trouble.The playoff-contending A’s said Manaea, on the disabled list since Aug. 26, will have an operation to repair a left shoulder impingement on Sept. 19 at the Cedars-Sinai Kerlan-Jobe Institute in Los Angeles.“He was that guy that every series, when teams played us, they’re looking to see if Manaea’s pitching in the series,” manager Bob Melvin said before a game at Baltimore. “That’s what your top guy means to you. Again, I feel worse for him. We’ll find a way to manage around it.”The 26-year-old Manaea went 12-9 with a 3.59 ERA and 108 strikeouts in 160 2/3 innings this year. He pitched a no-hitter at home against the Red Sox on April 21 , fanning 10.The A’s entered the day trailing first-place Houston by three games in the AL West. They also were three games behind the Yankees for the top spot in the wild-card standings.Oakland has been plagued with season-ending injuries to pitchers. Daniel Gossett, Kendall Graveman, Jharel Cotton and A.J. Puk each have undergone Tommy John surgery this year.“I think the psychology of it, based on the fact that we’ve had so many this year, it’s almost like we’re numb to it,” Melvin said. “It started in spring training with a couple of guys.”“Everybody feels for (Manaea) and then you just kind of move past it and continue to try to play in the fashion we have. And he’s been out a little bit, too. It’s not like this is a sudden thing that’s happened the last day or two,” he said. HOUSTON — With a postseason berth all but guaranteed, Astros manager A.J. Hinch has begun the process of mapping out the number of starts his frontline starters will make over the final two weeks of the season in deference to their workload and potential first-round matchups.Right-hander Gerrit Cole , the scheduled starter for Tuesday against the Seattle Mariners, will instead pitch the opener of the weekend series against the Los Angeles Angels on Friday. He is 12 2/3 innings shy of his third 200-inning season and has made 30 starts for the third time. His 260 strikeouts are a career high by a wide margin, 58 more than he had in 2015 with Pittsburgh.“He’s really been worked pretty hard,” Hinch said of Cole. “He’s been very consistent in his work. We have the opportunity to push him back a couple days; we know he’s only going to get two starts.”Article continues below ...Hinch will use care to not overextend right-handers Justin Verlander (202 innings) and Charlie Morton, who is nine innings shy of eclipsing the career-high 171 2/3 innings he logged during his age-27 season with the Pirates in 2011. Left-hander Dallas Keuchel has worked 191 2/3 innings for the Astros (94-56). Keuchel reached 200 innings in back-to-back seasons in 2014-15.“We are getting to that point where we’re trying to line up two more starts (for each pitcher), where they’re going to be, and how much rest they’re going to have in between,” Hinch said.Rookie right-hander Josh James (0-0, 4.22 ERA) will make his second career start and fourth appearance. He made his big-league debut on Sept. 1 against the Angels Glen Perkins Jersey , working five innings while allowing three runs on three hits and three walks with nine strikeouts. James followed with two relief appearances during a six-game road trip, combining to work 5 2/3 innings while allowing two runs on three hits and one walk with eight strikeouts against Boston and Detroit.Right-hander Mike Leake (10-9, 3.99 ERA) will start on Tuesday as the Mariners (83-67) try to clinch the season series. It will mark his 30th start on the season, the seventh consecutive season that Leake has reached that benchmark. Leake, coming off his staff-best 18th quality start, will make his 16th career appearance (14th start) against the Astros. He is 6-6 with a 3.67 ERA in his career against Houston, including 0-2 with a 5.00 ERA over three starts this season.Mariners ace left-hander James Paxton traveled with the club to Houston, fully recovered from a bout with pneumonia that had sidelined him since his previous start on Sept. 7 against the New York Yankees. With the Mariners clinging to faint postseason hopes, Paxton is incentivized to return to the mound Harmon Killebrew Jersey , but he cannot do so until he has reclaimed full strength.“It’s really going to be a play-it-by-ear thing,” Paxton said. “I don’t know how long it’s going to take to get energy back. I’d have to be able to throw, throw a bullpen, and still have energy left to go pitch a game. We’re going to try and build up that energy as best we can and try to get me back out there.”
