Chase Utley Jersey

American League teams often have to do some significant lineup shuffling in World Series road games because National League rules don't include the designated hitter.As a result Ian Kinsler Jersey , Boston Red Sox manager Alex Coracould explore all of his options to try to field the best team in the upcoming championship round."I don't know, man," Cora said when asked if outfielder Mookie Betts would play second base during the Fall Classic to get J.D. Martinez, the team's DH, into the lineup, according to "He already played second in the regular season. There's always a chance, I guess."Betts made one appearance at second during the regular season as an injury replacement for Ian Kinsler.Before that August 3 game, Betts had not played anywhere other than the outfield since his rookie season in 2014. He appeared in 14 contests at second base that year.The two-time Gold Gloveoutfielder has a career .956 fielding percentage at second Albert Pujols Jersey , having committed three errors in 15 games.It's a dilemma for Cora. Putting Betts at the keystone would weaken the team's defense and could make him a liability in the field. With a playoff series on the line, defensive miscues can be the difference. You don't need to tell Red Sox fansthat.Then again, if Betts doesn't shift to the infield, Cora would either have to find a spot for Martinez or use him off the bench. Considering Martinez ranked first in the majors in RBI (130) and second in batting average (.330) and home runs (43), it would be tough to sit him.Boston is fortunate enough to have four outfielders worthy of starting in the World Series, but finding each of them at-bats will be a problem in the NL park. Neither Jackie Bradley Jr. nor Andrew Benintendi has played anywhere other than the outfield in the majors.The Red Sox skipper has time to ponder the situation, as the first two games of the best-of-seven series will take place at Fenway Park on Tuesday and Wednesday, respectively , against either the Milwaukee Brewers or Los Angeles Dodgers. The World Series will shift to the National League park Friday, Oct. 26, for three games.Cora's decision could be impacted by the opponent or how the first two contests play out. Regardless, it will be a storyline to keep an eye on. The Los Angeles Dodgers are hoping recent MLB history repeats itself.The Dodgers pulled off the biggest move of the 2018 trade season when they acquired superstar shortstop Manny Machado from the Baltimore Orioles one day after the All-Star Game.The Dodgers gave up minor league prospectsRylan Bannon, Yusniel Diaz, Dean Kremer, Zach Pop and Breyvic Valera to get Machado.A year ago, the Houston Astros acquired right-handed starter Justin Verlander prior to the trade deadline Mike Piazza Jersey , and his arrival helped them capture the 2017 World Series. The Chicago Cubs traded for closer Aroldis Chapman a year earlier and were able to win the World Series over the Cleveland Indians in 2016.Machado, who is scheduled to become a free agent at the conclusion of this season, told the Baltimore Sun's Jon Meoli before his trade that he wants to play shortstop throughout the rest of his career. He moved from third base to shortstop this year, but he has been forced to play third base for the Dodgers due to Justin Turner's groin injury. Turner is on the 10-day disabled listDodgers manager Dave Roberts told Andy McCullough of theLos Angeles Timesthat Machado was quite willing to return to third base to help the team while Turner is out with a groin injury.Machado has a .312/.385/.564 slash line with 25 home runs and 67 RBI this season, and one of those home runs came in a Dodger uniform.The Orioles have not stopped since trading Machado, either, sending closer Zach Britton to the New York Yankees for pitching prospectsDillon Tate, Cody Carroll and Josh Rogers on Wednesday. Tate and Carroll are right-handed pitchers , while Rogers is a southpaw.The move seemed curious on the surface because the Yankees had perhaps the game's most powerful bullpen with Chapman, Dellin Betances, David Robertson and Chad Green. However, Chapman has struggled quite a bit in the last month. He has a 7.20 ERA in his last seven appearances, and knee issues may keep him from being at his best.The addition of Britton could pay huge dividends for the Yankees if Chapman does not regain his best form.Teams still have three more days to complete trades before Tuesday's trade deadline, and big names could continue to be on the move.Adam Jones could be the next Oriole on the move prior to the trade deadline.Gail Burton/Associated PressThe Orioles may continue their housecleaning by moving five-time All-Star outfielder Adam Jones. MLB Network's Jon Morositweeted that the Indians and the Philadelphia Phillies both have interest in Jones.Cleveland is in excellent shape to win the AL Central title, but the Indians know the biggest battles will come in the postseason against potential opponents such as the Boston Red Sox, Astros and Yankees. Adding a big bat like Jones could pay huge dividends for the Indians Chase Utley Jersey , who lost the seventh game of the World Series in extra innings to the Cubs two years ago.The Phillies have a narrow 2.5-game edge over the Atlanta Braves in the NL East, but the battle could go down to the final days of the regular season. The presence of Jones in the lineup could give the Phillies the edge.Jones has a .281/.307/.430 slash line with 11 home runs and 42 RBI going into Saturday's game against the Tampa Bay Rays.Minnesota Twins right-handed pitcher Kyle Gibson is not a superstar, but he has become a dependable pitcher for the Twins with a 3.42 ERA and 126 strikeouts in 129 innings. He shut down the hard-hitting Red Sox at Fenway Park Thursday night by allowing just one run in an eight-inning effort, and he looks like he could be an excellent add for any contending team.Predictably, he is generating interest, according to Fox Sports'Ken Rosenthal. However, if the Twins would need an impressive package in return to move Gibson since he is not eligible to become a free agent until 2020.
