Kenley Jansen feels ‘great’ after throwing session, optimistic for quick return to Dodgers

Posted On Aug 26 2020 by

first_img Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco Jansen threw to hitters from the mound at Safeco Field on Friday afternoon, approximately 20 pitches in all. It was Jansen’s second throwing session in three days. The hitters have not been allowed to swing, eliminating the risk of a comebacker that could injure Jansen.Sign up for our Inside the Dodgers newsletter. Be the best Dodger fan you can be by getting daily intel on your favorite team. Subscribe here.After each of the sessions, Jansen said he “felt great.” He has had no recurrence of the atrial fibrillation that sent him to the hospital in Denver last week and no side effects or bad reaction to the anticoagulant medication he has been taking.All of that has Jansen very optimistic about his appointment Monday.“I hope they say, ‘Great. You’re ready to go.’ That’s what my fingers are crossed for Monday,” he said. “We’ll see if that happens. That would be great so I can come back and help us get back in the race and we can go where we want to go.“No symptoms. No issues. No reaction. Everything is right. Right now, it’s basically Monday. Monday is the big day. We’ll see how it goes.” Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire BULLPEN SHUFFLEThe Dodgers activated reliever Daniel Hudson from the DL on Friday and moved right-hander Erik Goeddel there.Goeddel was activated from the DL on Monday after recovering from shoulder inflammation and retired all four batters he faced in Wednesday’s game. But Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Goeddel reported elbow pain after that game.“After that outing, he went to the trainers’ room and said he felt something in the back of his elbow,” Roberts said. “It felt unstable and there was pain in there.”An X-ray showed no structural damage, Roberts said, but Goeddel is on anti-inflammatory medication. He was moved to the DL on Friday.Relievers Josh Fields (out since June 28 with shoulder inflammation) and Yimi Garcia (out since July 4 with forearm inflammation) moved their rehabs to Triple-A Oklahoma City. Fields pitched a hitless inning, retiring the side in order and striking out one.PUIG PLAYSOutfielder Yasiel Puig is appealing the two-game suspension he received for his part in Tuesday’s benches-clearing incident. Puig did not start Friday but was available off the bench. Roberts said he expects to start Puig the next five days before the Dodgers’ day off Thursday.But Roberts did not seem to have any quarrel with Puig being disciplined more harshly than Giants catcher Nick Hundley. Hundley was fined but did not receive a suspension.“I thought that was kind of standard, what we expected,” Roberts said. “When you’re talking about throwing hands or anything like that, it kind of calls for it as opposed to any type of verbal (behavior).”The official release from MLB referred to Puig “inciting” the incident. He shoved Hundley and also slapped at him with an open hand as Dodgers coaches and teammates were trying to hold him back.Puig will be eligible to play until his appeal is heard.UP NEXTDodgers (LHP Rich Hill, 5-4, 3.57 ERA) at Mariners (RHP Erasmo Ramirez, 0-2, 6.75 ERA), Saturday, 7:10 p.m., SportsNet LA (where available), MLB Network (out of market only)Related Articles SEATTLE — Monday morning at 10:30 Kenley Jansen is scheduled to have a follow-up visit with his cardiologist in Los Angeles and go through a stress test (among other things).But the real stress for the Dodgers’ closer has been sitting and watching the team’s bullpen stumble without him.“I don’t know, man. It’s bad,” Jansen said Friday of watching helplessly over the past week. “Not bad about my guys not doing the job. But bad for me not being out there. I feel like – you feel great, you feel like you can play. But that blood-thinner medication holds you back.“That’s why I say it’s bad – it’s frustrating. I hate the DL. I want to be out there every single time to help my guys. It’s not a fun time for me right now. That’s why it’s kind of tough right now.”last_img read more


Crescent Point criticizes dissidents nominees in lengthy letter to investors

Posted On Oct 13 2019 by

first_imgCALGARY – Crescent Point Energy Corp. is doubling down in its battle with an activist investor, criticizing the company, its leader and even the ages of two of the four directors it has nominated for election at the annual general meeting next month.A lengthy letter to shareholders asking them to reject the dissident slate repeats criticism Crescent Point levelled Monday of activist Cation Capital Inc.’s “unreasonable” bid to have four new directors elected, saying it will disrupt the oil and gas producer’s five-year business plan.Crescent Point says the nominees are unqualified or offer experience that isn’t needed on the board and two nominees, Dallas Howe and Herbert Pinder, are close to the company’s director retirement age of 75, which means they wouldn’t be able to serve very long.In a response letter, Cation says Crescent Point CEO Scott Saxberg is attacking its nominees and placing blame to divert attention from the company’s “disastrous track record,” which includes a poor market valuation, high administration costs and executive pay and rising debt.CIBC analyst Dave Popowich says in a report to investors that Cation’s campaign “strains the limit of credibility” and is unlikely to succeed.He says Cation’s complaints about executive compensation at Crescent Point have been raised by shareholders in the past and added it has offered few details on how it would force change at the company to deliver more value to investors.The two sides seem entrenched in their opposing positions.“We welcome directors who will be a positive catalyst for shareholders, but these nominees will be a destructive force in the boardroom and on the share price,” said Crescent Point in its letter released late Thursday.“Our view is simple: This broken company needs new leadership that is committed to restoring the market’s confidence, significantly enhancing Crescent Point’s share price and ensuring long-term sustainability,” countered Cation president Sandy Edmonstone in the response on Friday.He and Thomas Budd are Cation’s third and fourth nominees.The company’s annual meeting is set for May 4.Companies in this story: (TSX:CPG)last_img read more


Twitter expands dark mode options on iOS

Posted On Oct 12 2019 by

first_imgSan Francisco: To facilitate an even darker theme for the app, micro-blogging site Twitter has added two new modes — “Lights Out” and “Automatic Dark” — to its already existing dark mode option, making it available to iOS users first. “It was dark. You asked for darker! Check out our new dark mode. Rolling out today,” Twitter tweeted on Thursday. Using a pure black colour palette, the “Lights Out” mode is designed to turn off the pixels on screen to further reduce the light emitted through the app interface. Also Read – Swiggy now in 500 Indian cities, targets 100 more this year Twitter says that the mode can potentially help with saving, Fortune reported. With the “Automatic Dark” mode, the micro-blogging site would let users choose to have their devices automatically switch from light to dark modes according to their timezones. “You can set things up so that your phone recognises what time it is and makes the transition for you without you even having to think about it,” the report added. Both the new modes have been made available for iOS users, however it remains unclear by when would the feature reach Android users.last_img read more


Torrence satisfied with choice to play football

Posted On Sep 28 2019 by

Few can say that they’ve accomplished their lifelong dream as early as college, but Ohio State cornerback Devon Torrence can. “I pretty much always knew I wanted to be here (at OSU),” Torrence said. “I didn’t take any official visits anywhere else, man. This was the only school I wanted to go to. I waited on a scholarship here. It was just a dream come true.” Torrence and his fellow senior teammates are looking to cap their college football careers by winning the National Championship. Anything less for this talented team filled with experience would be a letdown, for players and OSU fans alike. The Canton, Ohio, native grew up wanting to become a Buckeye and now he’s on the “Silver Bullet” defensive unit, which is largely considered one of the best in the country. As a freshman, Torrence was on the team when the Buckeyes lost to Louisiana State in the 2008 National Title game at the Superdome. Losing the game was tough, Torrence said, but it helped build the bond between him and his fellow seniors. “When you get a team that’s like that, that’s lost some and had some success, it creates that perfect gel of that team that’s hungry and just wants to get out there and win and fight for each other every snap,” he said. Senior linebacker Brian Rolle talked about the importance of having a good relationship with teammates and what Torrence means to the Buckeyes’ defense. “Me and Devon, it’s like big brother, little brother sometimes,” Rolle said. “We’re always picking on each other and talking trash to each other. We talk trash just knowing we want each other to get better. We study each other all the time. Me and him, it’s a great relationship.” Chimdi Chekwa plays cornerback opposite of Torrence and has helped improve his game. Torrence said their relationship also hits on the brotherhood theme. “Chim is just like a big brother,” Torrence said. “He helps me out with little things that can help with my game. He’s really smart and pays attention to a lot of detail. I consider myself a very raw athlete at the position. He’s a lot more seasoned than I am, I would say, with some stuff. A lot of times I rely on my athleticism to get me through. But he’ll break something down and give me a different perspective and put me into position to make a lot more plays.” After losing the National Championship game in New Orleans, OSU suffered a heart-breaking, last-second loss to Texas in the 2009 Fiesta Bowl, which marked the program’s third-consecutive postseason defeat. Last season, in the starting lineup for the first time, Torrence and the Buckeyes came back to win the Rose Bowl — a memory forever ingrained in his mind, and his favorite since becoming a Buckeye. “People say that we were young that year. It was my first year out there (starting),” he said. “We had a great time out in California and it’s something that I’ll remember for the rest of my life — just winning that game out there and having a blast.” Rolle, known for playing with “swagger,” said that Torrence has plenty of his own and he’s always pressing his teammates to improve. “Playing with him is great because Devon, he’s a guy, I would say, probably has more swagger than I do,” Rolle said. “He’s always like ‘let’s go man, we got to get better today.’ We went through walk-throughs today and he came up to me and said, ‘You gonna get better today?’ He’s always pushing himself and always pushing others to get better.” Football wasn’t Torrence’s only passion. He was drafted in the 16th round of Major League Baseball’s amateur entry by the Houston Astros and played two summers of rookie ball for the Greeneville Astros in Tennessee. He didn’t quite have the same success as an outfielder as he did with a helmet and shoulder pads. The athletic speedster hit .149 and .151 in 64 games over two seasons for Greeneville. Baseball and football are vastly different sports, which require different mindsets. Torrence mentioned how difficult it was to bounce back from mistakes or bad games in football because there is a week between games to dwell on them. In baseball, there’s usually a game the next day to help forget about mistakes. “I think that was probably the biggest adjustment for me to realize, was my mind-frame around that. I can’t give up any plays around here and, if I do, I got to forget about them right away,” Torrence said. “In baseball you have the next day to go 3-4, a double and a home run, and make a diving catch in the outfield. You can 0-3 the next day and come back and go 3-3 the next, so I think that was probably the biggest challenge for me.” Torrence said it was difficult to be a two-sport athlete. The situation was trying because he played baseball during the summer, when his teammates on the football team would be preparing for the season. Getting a late start on football was a tough adjustment to make. “I was in a different world, I would say. I wasn’t in the same situation that a lot of people were in here. My situation was very different from all types of angles,” he said. Eventually, he caught up to speed with his teammates. The relationships he’s created with them are important to him. Torrence said he’s made numerous bonds that he plans to maintain. “Those guys will be my best friends for the rest of my life. (Jermale Hines) and (Chekwa), I can rely on those guys for anything I need, or anything they need they can count on me to be there — (It’s) the same with (Cameron Heyward) and those guys. We kid and joke around all the time with each other, but I know that if I was ever in a serious situation and I needed anything really bad, that those guys would have my back,” he said. “I’m just glad that I was fortunate to come here and develop the relationships with those guys for the future.” read more

Kovac Robben is a doubt for Der Klassiker

Posted On Sep 18 2019 by

first_imgBayern Munich boss Niko Kovac revealed that they may be without Arjen Robben for Saturday’s Der Klassiker against Borussia DortmundThe Dutch winger is suffering from a knee injury and faces a late fitness test to determine his availability.The loss of Robben will likely come as an unwelcome blow for Kovac, whose side trail Bundesliga leaders Dortmund by four points ahead of Saturday’s game.“Everyone is fine,” Kovac told reporters on YouTube.“Arjen tried to train yesterday but has a couple of knee problems so we’ll have to see how he trains today.”Since the last international break, Bayern have won five of their last six games in all competitions.But the pressure continues to grow on Kovac with players like Thomas Muller reportedly frustrated over the Croatian’s rotation policy.Just last weekend, Muller’s wife publicly slammed Kovac on social media after the striker was left on the bench in last Saturday’s 1-1 draw with SC Freiburg.Jadon SanchoMerson believes Arsenal should sign Sancho Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho might be the perfect player to play for the Gunners, according to former England international Paul Merson.However, Kovac is making no promises ahead of his first Der Klassiker in charge of Bayern.“It’s the Klassiker and everyone wants to play,” Kovac added.“Everyone wants to play every Bundesliga game but tomorrow [Saturday] even more so.“I think people will be even more disappointed if they don’t play but everyone has to work hard to make a positive atmosphere.“I always try with my coaches to pick a team to win the game, that’s always the case and always will be the case. I don’t pick players because I like or dislike them.“Some would have thought I wouldn’t have picked Thomas Muller [against AEK Athens in the Champions League] but it’s not the case.“I look at the training and the opponent, it’s nothing to do with liking or disliking players. I like all my players.”The league match between Dortmund and Bayern will begin at 18:30 (CEST) at Signal Iduna Park.last_img read more
