Injured New York Knicks star Kristaps Porzingis has no specific timetable for his return from ACL surgery, but he’s confident that he’ll eventually return to All-Star form once he gets back on the court.
Porzingis, who was walking without a noticeable limp on Tuesday, said he will use his time off the court to strengthen his entire body while healing his knee.
Trying to give it as much intensity as possible to be ready to when I step in, I could go right into games and try to be ready as fast as possible for the season, Lynn said before his Twins debut.
Lynn, still progressing in his recovery from Tommy John surgery that caused him to miss the 2016 season, tied a career high and the NL lead with 33 starts last year. The 39th overall pick by the Cardinals in the 2008 amateur draft went 11-8 with a 3.43 ERA in 2017, and he was 72-47 with a 3.38 ERA in six seasons with the Cardinals.
With Odorizzi, Jose Berrios, Ervin Santana and Kyle Gibson in place, there’s not much competition left in camp for starting spots. Molitor has said he’ll use a four-man rotation as much as possible in April while Santana recovers from finger surgery. Phil Hughes and Tyler Duffey could be relegated to long relief.
Anderson will be the fifth different opening day starter for the Brewers in the last five seasons. Junior Guerra got the honor last year, and he was preceded by Wily Peralta, Kyle Lohse and Yovani Gallardo.
President Donald Trump welcomed the Houston Astros to the White House on Monday.
Trump hailed the Astros for their outstanding season, which culminated with the first title in franchise history, a seven-game victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers.
To all of the players and the management of the Houston Astros, I want to say thank for being true champions on and off the field, Trump said during a half-hour ceremony in the East Room. You really exemplify what greatness is all about. And it’s a credit to the players here today.
