The Eagles organization accepted an invitation to the White House, but how many players will go?
Chris Long and Malcolm Jenkins already said they wouldn’t attend. Carson Wentz, though, said he tentatively plans on taking the trip.
Wilmer Difo (B), 5.6 percent, Washington Nationals vs. San Diego Padres (RHP Tyson Ross): Holding down second base with Howie Kendrick done for the season and Daniel Murphy continuing his slow recuperation, Difo has rattled off a 5-for-13 stretch in his past three starts. Ross’ revival has been propped up by a .268 BABIP to hide a 38.4 percent hard-contact rate, so the surging infielder is a quiet bet for another multi-hit day.
Nick Ahmed (R), 8.8 percent, Arizona Diamondbacks at Milwaukee Brewers (LHP Brent Suter): It doesn’t hurt to try picking on Suter, despite his streamer listing, and Ahmed deserves deep-league lineup consideration against lefties. Suter has allowed a .367 wOBA to RHBs and, as mentioned before, hasn’t performed well at home.
I don’t know what it was. I guess my awareness wasn’t where it should have been, Evans said, via Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times. I’ve just got to work on it more in practice and get more reps at it.
Evans wants to improve his yards after the catch. Only 169 of Evans 1,321 receiving yards in 2016 came after the catch. It ranked as the second-worst in the NFL among players Erik Karlsson Youth jersey with more than 25 catches. In 2017, Evans had only 115 yards after the catch, with his 1.62-yard average after the catch ranking behind only Jason Witten among players with 25 receptions.
I think last year was my worst year in YAC, Evans said. I’ve got another hurdle to jump over, and I think I’ll be much better this year. I’ve got to do better in that category, and I think if I do, I’ll be the most complete receiver.
McCarthy said he was merely decoration in the batter’s box.
I had no chance against Velasquez, he said.
