Joey Gallo injury update: Rangers outfielder (oblique) placed on 10-day IL

first_imgJoey Gallo has All-Star hopes in his fifth season with the Rangers. But the outfielder could see significant time off the diamond after leaving Saturday’s game early.Gallo suffered an oblique strain and has been placed on the 10-day IL, the team announced Sunday. He is scheduled to undergo further evaluation, including an MRI, manager Chris Woodward confirmed. MLB trade rumors: Mariners ‘trying to trade everyone’ “It tightened up on him,” Woodward said, via The Dallas Morning News. “He actually felt it throwing and in that last at-bat. He swung, didn’t like it and the next swing that’s when I came out. He creates so much torque in that body, even if it’s a small oblique issue, I don’t want that to turn into a major one.”In 170 at-bats this season, Gallo is hitting .276/.421/.653 with 17 homers and 41 RBIs.

MLB trade deadline: Best, worst moves from a wild day

first_img MLB trade news: Astros add frontline starter, deal for Diamondbacks’ Zack Greinke Which moves were the best? Which ones were the worst? We have them right here.Best: Astros add Zack Greinke, Aaron Sanchez, Joe BiaginiIt looked like the Astros were going to stand pat at the deadline. When 4 p.m. ET rolled around, Houston had picked up a reliever in Biagini from the Blue Jays and were in the process of sending Max Stassi to the Angels. It was kind of boring.All of a sudden it was great — even if it was costly. About five minutes after the deadline officially ended news broke that the Astros had acquired Zack Greinke from the Diamondbacks. It took a haul, since Houston had to give up Corbin Martin and J.B. Bukauskas, who were both top-100 prospects to start the year, Seth Beer — who currently is in the top 100 — and Josh Rojas, who has done nothing but hit in his minor league career. However, the Diamondbacks reportedly will cover $24 million of Greinke’s contract over the next two years, which makes his deal much more affordable.Houston now has a pitcher for another two years when it may lose Gerrit Cole to free agency in the offseason. In addition, the team added a flyer in Aaron Sanchez, who seems tailor-made for a reclamation project under Brent Strom. And Biagini also has good numbers and high spin rates.Best: Diamondbacks trade Greinke, acquire Zac Gallen, Mike Leake, huge prospectsThe Diamondbacks got a great return for Greinke and some salary relief, as well. But adding Zac Gallen for one upper-level prospect is a steal. He was great for Miami in limited time this year and is a very good prospect in his own right.The addition of Leake is huge, since he is a very similar pitcher to Luke Weaver and can be a good mentor alongside him while adding some value in the rotation, as well. They also held on to Robbie Ray, who they still could get a good package for in the offseason or use him to compete next year.Best: Indians acquire Franmil Reyes, Yasiel Puig, Logan Allen, prospect for Trevor BauerThis one came late in the evening Tuesday, but it was still a deadline deal. To get two outfielders who are talented at hitting is awesome. And to land a viable MLB starter and a prospect is great, as well. To do all that while not losing Bauer for nothing, who said he was going to leave in free agency in 2020, is simply good management.The Indians did exactly what they needed to at the deadline.Worst: Mets acquire Marcus Stroman, hold onto Noah Syndergaard, Zack WheelerAdding Marcus Stroman is great — if you’re a contender. But the Mets aren’t that. They’re 51-55, in fourth place in the National League East and five games back of the second wild-card spot. And this team’s pitching is pretty good. Why add another starter when the pitching already is high? Why not add a closer where the team is struggling? That’s why this move makes no sense at first glance.At second glance, they made the deal even worse by acquiring Stroman for such a low price. The Mets set the market low by sending off two minor league pitchers, but while they were “insistent” on dealing Syndergaard, they kept asking for high prices. Stroman has been better than Syndergaard this year and has just one year less of control. Why would a team give a massive haul for a pitcher with similar numbers and control while paying a low price? The Mets were insulting other teams’ intelligence and their potential trade partners weren’t having any of it.This probably hurt with Zack Wheeler, as well, as the Mets reportedly wanted a big return for him, despite being a mere rental. The Mets shot themselves in the foot and now have the best rotation ever for a team four games under .500. Congratulations.Worst: Yankees stand patThe Yankees absolutely had to add. Not because they had a lack of depth in starting pitching or even in the bullpen, but simply because they needed to make a statement. The Astros just passed them for the best record in the American League and are starting to look like the better team. The Yankees needed to make a statement and needed to improve to get the leg up back on Houston. MLB trade rumors: Diamondbacks acquire starter Mike Leake from Mariners It looked like it was going to be a rather subdued trade deadline.As the 4 p.m. ET deadline came up Wednesday, Madison Bumgarner hadn’t moved, Edwin Diaz was staying put and the Yankees had done nothing. Then 4:05 p.m. ET arrived and all hell broke loose.The Astros made three trades, the Cubs added a big bat and the Diamondbacks came out with a big load. Related News They didn’t do that and the Astros got markedly better with their additions. Houston now is the prohibitive favorite to win the American League and it’s likely won’t be close. The Yankees did this to themselves.Worst: Padres give up Franmil Reyes, Logan Allen, prospect in three-team trade to land Taylor TrammellThis has nothing to do with how Trammell is as a player. He can be good. But to give up a good hitter, pitcher and a potentially good player down the road to get one prospect who is hitting .236 at Double-A is puzzling.Many people are asking why San Diego would do this deal. Why on earth give up that much to get a guy with a similar profile to Manuel Margot? It just doesn’t make sense and if Trammell doesn’t wind up being a superstar down the line, A.J. Preller is going to be hearing about this deal for a while. MLB trade news: Dodgers acquire lefty Adam Kolarek from Rayslast_img read more

TEENAGE GANG TERRIFIED YOUNG GIRLS DURING BOTCHED ROBBERY

first_imgThree young Inishowen men broke into the home of a businessman before tying up two young girls and threatening them with a fake gun.Letterkenny court.Jason Bonner, 19, and two other accomplices burst into the house in Carndonagh on September29th last before taping the mouths and hands of one of the girls. The young gang believed there was a substantial amount of tobacco and cash in the house which belonged to Patrick Pembroke of The Mullins, Carndonagh.However, when the men broke into the house, the owner wasn’t present, but his grand-daughter Daniella Doherty and her friend Shannon Doherty were inside the house.Daniella Doherty opened the door and it was then forced in by one of the other men.She was thrown to the ground and had her hands, mouth and head taped.The men told the girls they had a gun, although the court heard that gun was never produced to the girls.It was later discovered by Gardaí that the gun the men had with them during the robbery was an imitation firearm.While Daniella Doherty lay bound on the ground, Shannon Doherty was told to put tobacco and money into a bag which the thieves had brought with them.The men frantically searched the house, but found only six packets of cigarettes and just €58 in cash.However, Shannon Doherty managed to escape from the house and was able to raise the alarm.Members of her family then apprehended Jason Bonner of Aghilly, Buncrana and kept him under restraint until Gardaí arrived at the scene and arrested him.Frank Bonner, the father of the accused, said the nature of the crime and the repercussions of the robbery has had a profound effect on his son and the entire family.He said, “As a family we’ve just been left devastated by what happened. We just couldn’t believe Jason had been involved in this sort of crime.“It left us dumbfounded, and it absolutely disgraced our entire family. The pain and trauma the two girls suffered as a result of the robbery is just tragic.”When quizzed as to whether or not his son had any remorse for his part in the robbery, Mr Bonner said his remorse was total and genuine.“Jason is coming to terms with what he done, and he knows it was a terrible thing he was a part of. He is totally remorseful for his actions.“That doesn’t make everything ok, but I know he’s deeply sorry for what he’s done and his remorse is total and genuine.”Mr Bonner also revealed his son had tried to take his own life and he had been forced to get psychiatric help for his son.“I’m not looking for sympathy for Jason, he has to be held accountable for his actions. But we were so worried about him we had him signed into a mental institution.“He was self-harming and had made attempts to take his own life, we were so worried about him and we realise he needs psychological support.“He needs to be involved in something active during the week, and needs to speak to a mental health professional once-a-week.”Barrister Damien Crawford said the Bonner family are a decent hard working family and the actions of their son had caused them great distress and embarrassment.He said the accused was remorseful for his actions and asked to pen a letter to his victims, but was advised not to do it, he also offered them €2,000 as compensation for his actions.He also appealed against a custodial sentence for his client, saying that he needs specialist help from medical professionals, and with the support of his loving family can help turn his life around.Judge Matthew Deery said the men were out of their depth and didn’t fully understand the seriousness of the crime they were about to commit.“They didn’t expect the girls to be there, and Shannon Doherty and Daniella Doherty have been deeply affected by the ordeal.“Daniella Doherty probably suffered greater trauma because she was bound, but both were subjected to awful ordeals.“I’m taking into account by what was said by Mr Crawford and I’m satisfied listening to their evidence that they’ll be able to help Jason to stop re-offending,” he said.He jailed Bonner for two and a half years but suspended the sentence and ordered him to keep the peace for three years.The two other men will be dealt with after having their cases adjourned until December.TEENAGE GANG TERRIFIED YOUNG GIRLS DURING BOTCHED ROBBERY was last modified: July 19th, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:CarndonaghcashFrank BonnerJason BonnerJudge Matthew DeeryLetterkenny Circuit Courtrobberylast_img read more
