The hard-luck Mets have suffered yet another mishap, as Asdrubal Cabrera left the team’s game Sunday against the Yankees after three innings with a tight hamstring, the team announced.
Jose Reyes replaced Cabrera, who went hitless in two plate appearances before exiting.
The Padres have had, by far, the most players from the 2008 draft make the majors, and that doesn’t include Jason Kipnis, who was their fourth-round selection but didn’t sign and was taken by Cleveland in the second round of the 2009 draft. Of the 14 Padres picks who http://www.officialauthenticravensstore.com/Nike-Lamar-Jackson-Jersey.html did sign and eventually make the majors, only Forsythe (12.5 rWAR), Brad Brach Wayne Simmonds Youth Jersey (6.8 rWAR) and Nick Vincent (4.5 rWAR) have a career rWAR even above 1.0. Brach was a 42nd-round pick and Vincent was an 18th-rounder.
It’s funny how things play out. The Cubs drafted pretty well (10 signees made the bigs), but the best eventual major-leaguers didn’t have success in Chicago — Josh Harrison http://www.authenticflyersite.com/-17-wayne-simmonds-jersey_c-472.html was traded to Pittsburgh, Sonny Gray didn’t sign and Andrew Cashner was shipped to San Diego. The Cashner deal, of course, was a huge moment in Chicago’s push to the 2016 World Series title; the Cubs received Anthony Rizzo in return.
Strasburg, a three-time All-Star, has registered a 6-6 record with a 3.46 ERA in 80 2/3 innings pitched this season. Strasburg went 15-4 and finished in third place of the NL Cy Young award voting in 2017.
The Nationals have opened the season with a 36-26 record. They’ve won three of their last four games.
Let’s start with the first round. In 2008, including supplemental picks for the loss of a top-tier free agent, 46 players were selected. Two picks — Aaron Crow (No. 9, Nationals) and Gerrit Cole (No. 28, Yankees) — opted not to sign.
Of those 44 players who signed, 37 made the major leagues (84.1 percent). Some Lamar Jackson Jersey of those players, though, were up for little more than a cup of coffee in the bigs. Only six of those first-rounders — Buster Posey, Eric Hosmer, Brett Lawrie, Lance Lynn, Logan Forsythe and Jason Castro — have compiled a career rWAR in double-digits. Posey, at 40.1, more than doubles any of those other five players.
