PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. — After one exhibition start, Jacob deGrom has a 9.00 ERA. No worries, because all other signs are positive for one of the top pitchers in the major leagues.

“Still plenty of time to hopefully get that down,” the New York Mets ace said Sunday with a few laughs.

The reigning NL Cy Young Award winner tossed one inning and gave up Tyler White’s RBI single on a 97 mph fastball in a 10-1 loss to a split squad of Houston Astros.

DeGrom allowed two hits and threw 14 of his 17 pitches for strikes.

The 30-year-old righty made his spring training debut after posting a 1.70 ERA season. Often throttled by a lack of run support, he went 10-9 for the fourth-place Mets.

Even after such a dominant season, deGrom isn’t taking anything for granted.

“I was nervous today going out there for the first time,” the lanky pitcher said.

DeGrom said he began playing catch in October just a few weeks after the season ended, keeping his arm active by tossing the ball with his father. He has thrown regularly in the offseason, just a couple of times a week, since taking more time off after the lengthy 2015 campaign because of the World Series.

DeGrom later developed nerve damage in 2016 and had season-ending surgery in September.

“I just feel like when I play more catch and keep my arm moving it seems to feel batter when I come to spring training. If there’s no break, maybe it will stay the same,” he said.

DeGrom had a few obstacles a year ago that prevented him from getting the opening day nod from manager Mickey Callaway. DeGrom left camp to be with his wife for the birth of their daughter and then battled back stiffness after his return, delaying his progress even further.

Good friend Noah Syndergaard made the start instead of him and beat St. Louis in the opener.

DeGrom said his goal this year is to work on consistency and limit the running game better.

“I want to try and eliminate those starts that got out of hand. It’s a little bit easier said than done,” said deGrom, who allowed a leadoff double to Tony Kemp.

“I’m trying to keep the focus on the pitch I’m about to throw, not the pitch I’ve just thrown that was a homer or whatever happened,” he said. “I was a little bit frustrated today. I felt like I made a pretty good pitch to Kemp there, a high fastball that he got to. That’s frustrating. But it’s constantly learning to try and let that stuff go.”

Said Callaway: “He’s poised to go out there and dominate again, in my opinion.”

New catcher Wilson Ramos caught deGrom for just the second time this spring.

“It’s an exciting moment for me because I’m trying to know him better,” Ramos said. “In the beginning of spring training, everybody wants to attack the hitter. He did it today and did it very well.”
Game notes
LF Tim Tebow nearly made a diving grab on a foul fly behind the Mets’ bullpen after a long run, but the ball popped out of his glove when he landed. The next half-inning, he hit a long fly that easily beat Kemp in left, but center fielder Myles Straw made a spectacular diving grab in the gap for the out. … Callaway called the catching position “an open competition” when it came to the backup spot and said Travis d’Arnaud needed to match up his footwork with his arm. … Callaway said pitching coach Dave Eiland has a “solid plan” for new closer Edwin Diaz in terms of spring appearances.

• Complete ALCS coverage

As for the hardware already on hand, the ALCS will have two previous AL MVPs (Jose Altuve and Verlander), four AL Cy Young Award winners (David Price, Rick Porcello, Verlander and Dallas Keuchel) and a World Series MVP (George Springer).

This is the larger point Hinch was making on Wednesday when he was asked about his relationship with Red Sox manager Alex Cora, who was the Astros’ bench coach during last season’s World Series title run.

• Gear up for the ALCS: Astros | Red Sox

Cool stuff, for sure. Hinch joked he’d been trying to remember if he’d told Cora any secrets he wish he hadn’t. But he used the moment to emphasize something else.

“This series is largely about the players,” Hinch said. “Both teams have really incredible players. You can name two managers, and you can name a couple of coaches, but you can rattle off 15 or 20 household names in this series that baseball should be proud of.”

So to prepare ourselves for Game 1 on Saturday at Fenway Park, let’s count down the 10 biggest stars in the ALCS:

10. Xander Bogaerts, Red Sox SS
He was 20 when he made his much-anticipated debut five years ago. Now a veteran at 26, with a World Series ring, an All-Star appearance and two AL Silver Slugger Awards to his credit, he’s coming off his best season — 45 doubles, 23 home runs and an .883 OPS.

9. Cole, Astros RHP
Another one of Astros GM Jeff Luhnow’s smart moves, Cole has lined up as a solid No. 2 starter in baseball’s best rotation. The Astros have won 25 of his 33 starts, including a seven-inning, one-run performance in ALDS Game 2. Cole was fifth in innings in the AL and second in strikeouts, trailing only Verlander (290 to 276).

8. Carlos Correa, Astros SS
His resume includes being the No. 1 pick in the 2012 MLB Draft, the 2015 AL Rookie of the Year Award winner and a member of the 2017 AL All-Star team. He was the AL MVP Award frontrunner that year before missing almost two months with a torn thumb ligament. He has been slowed by a back injury this season, but he homered in the Game 3 of the AL Division Series clincher against the Indians.

7. Springer, Astros OF
He’s the spiritual leader of the Astros and has been at his best when the stakes are the highest. He’s also a World Series MVP and two-time AL All-Star. He has homered 10 times in 27 postseason games and just batted .429 in the ALDS.

6. Sale, Red Sox LHP
A seven-time All-Star, he was the frontrunner for this year’s AL Cy Young Award until being forced onto the disabled list twice in the second half with a cranky left shoulder. He looked good in two ALDS appearances against the Yankees, and Sale will start Game 1 against the Astros.

5. Altuve, Astros 2B
At 28, he’s on a solid Hall of Fame track with 1,419 hits, three AL batting titles, four 200-hit seasons and six All-Star appearances. He probably was headed toward a fourth batting title when a sore knee sidelined him for a month in the second half.

4. Bregman, Astros 3B
He was the defending World Series champs’ MVP in 2018 with 51 doubles, 31 home runs and 103 RBIs. He was also the All-Star Game MVP, and he just hit .556 with a pair of home runs against the Indians. His eighth-inning home run off Sale in Game 4 of the 2017 NLDS at Fenway Park was the biggest hit of the series.

3. Martinez, Red Sox DH
His career was reborn four years ago after being released by the Astros in Spring Training. He remade his swing and preparation, and he has averaged 37 home runs in the last four seasons. He flirted with Triple Crown numbers in 2018, finishing with 43 home runs, 130 RBIs and a .330 batting average.

2. Betts, Red Sox RF
Betts is the AL MVP frontrunner after a monstrous season in which he led the Majors with a .346 batting average and 129 runs. He’s likely to win his third Gold Glove, and despite a slow start to this postseason, he and Martinez will be the opposing hitters the Astros fear the most.

1. Verlander, Astros RHP
His Hall of Fame ticket is already punched, and helping the Astros win the World Series in 2017 might have been the final punctuation mark. In 14 seasons, he has filled out almost every line of a Hall of Fame resume, and at 35, is coming off one of his most dominant seasons: 214 innings, 290 strikeouts and a 2.52 ERA. In 45 starts and one relief appearance for the Astros, including the postseason, he’s 26-10 with a 2.33 ERA.

Cheap Authentic Houston Astros Jerseys World Series 2018 Online

LOS ANGELES — Houston Astros manager A.J. Hinch said he began Sunday’s highly anticipated meeting by turning to Roberto Osuna and briefly addressing him in front of the team. He wanted to tell him how lucky he was to “join this culture, this clubhouse, this collection of guys that are sitting around in the room that I believe are second to none.”

Then he gave Osuna the floor for what amounted to roughly 10 minutes.

According to players in the closed-door meeting, Osuna apologized for the distraction his domestic assault charge has caused. He told his new teammates how grateful he is to get another opportunity to pitch and to do so with the defending World Series champions. He declined to provide specifics about the incident that prompted a 75-game suspension under Major League Baseball’s domestic violence policy, a stance he maintained during a 25-minute interview inside Dodger Stadium’s visiting dugout shortly thereafter.

“Not right now,” Osuna said, in Spanish, when asked to provide specifics about what led to his May 8 arrest in Toronto, citing an ongoing legal matter.

Osuna faces a Sept. 5 court date. His attorney, Domenic Basile, has entered a not guilty plea on Osuna’s behalf and is reportedly seeking a peace bond that would essentially drop the charges in exchange for good behavior.

Asked if he is hopeful this situation will resolve itself quickly, Osuna said: “The important thing is that it resolves itself in the best way possible. I would like for it to be resolved quickly, but whatever amount is necessary, as long as everything turns out well for all parties involved.”

The Astros acquired Osuna on Monday in exchange for three pitchers — most notably former closer Ken Giles — and will eventually turn to him in the ninth inning. The 23-year-old Mexican right-hander finished serving his suspension on Sunday morning and was added to the active roster, with starting pitcher Lance McCullers placed on the 10-day disabled list while he gets his pitching elbow examined.

Osuna said he was “not surprised” that the Toronto Blue Jays let him ago, adding: “I was very happy when I found out I had been traded to the Astros.” His new teammates “treated me well,” Osuna said in Spanish. “I felt like part of the team.”

As for what these past few months have been like?

“I’m just trying to take the positives out of this,” Osuna said. “I’ve prepared myself well in all this time that I’ve been inactive, and I’m very happy to be able to play baseball again.”

Owner Jim Crane and general manager Jeff Luhnow met with the team separately on Saturday. They wanted to go over the background checks they conducted on Osuna and explain why they felt comfortable bringing him in. Luhnow came away believing his players were “appreciative” of the chat.

“It was not an easy decision for us to come to as an organization,” Luhnow said, “but based on all the information that we have, we believe Roberto deserves a second chance. Jim and I both communicated that to the players. Each player’s going to have to make up his own mind over time. I believe Roberto has gotten off to a good start. He met everybody today. And I think that our clubhouse is going to give him a chance to be part of this team, to help us win.”

Luhnow added that he is “not worried” about the Osuna acquisition “fragmenting the clubhouse,” a sentiment his players and his manager were adamant on throughout the weekend.

Astros’ McCullers to DL with elbow discomfort
Houston Astros starter Lance McCullers Jr. has been placed on the 10-day disabled list with right elbow discomfort, the team announced Sunday.

Luhnow, who was born and raised in Mexico City and has followed Osuna since he was a teenage phenom in his home country, brought up the possibility of Osuna talking to minor leaguers about his experience and getting involved in community work in Houston. Osuna said he would do whatever he is asked.

“While there’s been a lot of negativity around it,” Luhnow said, “I do ultimately believe that over the long haul, we can turn this into a very positive event for our team, for Roberto personally, for everybody else that was affected and for the community of Houston and our fan base.”

Luhnow hedged when asked if he was able to uncover details about the pending legal matter, saying that “due process is warranted” and that the club is “going to let it play out.”

As part of a 346-word statement issued Sunday, the Astros said the decision to acquire Osuna “was based on the entirety of information that we gathered during our extensive evaluation. That included as much information as we could gather about the specific incident and the charges that were filed, but it also included as much information as we could gather about his actions before and after the incident, as well as his personal reputation among his former teammates and coaches.”

Hinch met with Osuna one-on-one for close to 15 minutes before Osuna addressed the team. Hinch told him what he heard about him through John Gibbons, his manager with the Blue Jays, and some of his former teammates. He told him “to be himself,” as he says to everyone, and he told him he was “going to have to go through a lot of firsts.”

The Astros say they don’t know the details of what took place between Osuna and the alleged victim, which creates its share of challenges.

“We really don’t know what to think or what to say or what to do and how to absorb all of this,” Hinch said. “But it’s right in front of us, and we will do our best as a team and as a family and a group to help him navigate through this, to help ourselves to navigate through this. My hope for him is that he does take some of this culture, this vibe and the character on our team and absorb it to himself.”

“While there’s been a lot of negativity around it, I do ultimately believe that over the long haul, we can turn this into a very positive event for our team, for Roberto personally, for everybody else that was affected and for the community of Houston and our fan base.”
Astros GM Jeff Luhnow
On the field, Osuna addresses what might be the only vulnerability on an Astros team that entered Sunday’s game in first place with a 71-41 record. An All-Star in 2017, Osuna sports a 2.87 ERA, a 0.92 WHIP, a 6.33 strikeout-to-walk ratio and 104 career saves. Just as appealing is that he is controllable through 2021 and should come at a relatively cheap price.

Astros third baseman Alex Bregman said “everyone was locked in and listening” when Osuna addressed the team. He brought up his father being a defense attorney, saying: “Until you’re proven guilty of something, you’re innocent as far as I’m concerned. I definitely believe in second chances. That’s all I’m really going to say about this.”

Fellow reliever Collin McHugh, the team’s representative with the Major League Baseball Players Association, introduced himself to Osuna on Sunday and offered support.

“I don’t think anybody’s comfortable with the situation,” McHugh later told the media. “I don’t think anybody in baseball is comfortable with this situation. There’s a lot of ongoing things. There’s things that are happening. Nobody in this clubhouse is going to condone anything that’s happened off the field. But at the same time, he’s a Houston Astro now. And we take him being a Houston Astro very seriously.”

Osuna missed games last season due to bouts with anxiety, an issue he spoke about publicly. He earned the respect of his teammates in Toronto for the way he handled those demons, for the way he overcame his impoverished upbringing and for the way he was able to separate pitching from whatever was happening off the field.

The domestic assault allegation he faces has created a complex dilemma, because of both the unknowns and the potential severity. The Astros are still working through how to take it all in.

“Make no bones about it: Domestic violence allegations are bad,” Hinch said. “Domestic violence is bad. All of us as humans know that and believe that. And so we have to figure out a way to separate those feelings versus the additional opportunity he is getting on our club.”

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Houston Astros keep finding ways to win, while the Kansas City Royals keep inventing ways to lose.

Carlos Correa and the Astros won their 11th straight game, finishing off a dominant 10-0 road trip by rallying past the Royals 7-4 on Sunday.

The World Series champion Astros swept their swing through Texas, Oakland and Kansas City, outscoring opponents 74-35.

Last season, Houston had an 11-game winning streak end in Kansas City. This time, the Astros trailed 4-3 in the eighth when Correa led off the inning with a tying homer.

“We just have a great team. It’s hard to find any holes on this team. I don’t think there are any,” Correa said.

Correa has three home runs and eight RBIs in six games after missing four games with discomfort in his right side. He had a first-inning single and added a sacrifice fly in the ninth.

Evan Gattis hit .366 with five home runs and 19 RBIs on the Astros’ trip. He singled home Yuli Gurriel in the eighth to put the Astros ahead, and Marwin Gonzalez added an RBI single in the inning.

“I take confidence in our lineup versus anybody,” Gattis said.

The Astros’ 11-game winning, which is one shy of their franchise record, is also tied for the fifth-longest win streak by a defending World Series champion team in the past 80 seasons, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

Houston’s perfect 10-game road trip marks just the sixth time in the past 65 seasons that a team has completed a perfect road trip of 10 or more games. It happened last year during the Cleveland Indians’ 22-game win streak, but before that, it hadn’t happened since 2002, according to Elias.

The Royals have lost six straight and 12 of 13 games. They have dropped 26 of 36 home games.

Brandon Maurer (0-3) took the loss, facing two batters who both scored. Tony Sipp (2-0) picked up the victory. Hector Rondon closed for his fourth save.

Astros right-hander Lance McCullers struck out nine over six innings, allowing two unearned runs.

“I didn’t want to blow it,” McCullers said of the winning streak.

Royals right-hander Brad Keller, a Rule 5 draft pick making his fourth start, gave up three runs in six innings.

“I felt like I did pretty well,” Keller said. “That’s a good-hitting team and they got pop, so to keep them on the ground, I’m happy with that.”

Third baseman Alex Bregman’s errant throw home with the bases loaded led to the Royals scoring two unearned runs in the first to tie it at 2. Hunter Dozier hit a two-run homer in the third to give the Royals a 4-2 lead.

Brian McCann’s two-out single in the fourth scored Gattis to reduce the Royals’ lead to one.

Now that the Houston Astros are starting the defense of their first World Series title, the question will be whether the team suffers a hangover from its remarkable run.

But staff ace Dallas Keuchel said he does not expect a dip in the Astros’ form in a declaration that might ruffle a few feathers at Wrigley Field.

“We’re not the Cubs,” Keuchel told The Washington Post when asked about the Chicago Cubs’ returning almost the same team from their 2016 championship and winning 11 fewer games. “I firmly believe we have better players.”

Only one franchise has repeated as World Series champions in the past four decades: the New York Yankees, who pulled off a three-peat from 1998 to 2000.

Astros pitcher Lance McCullers Jr., who started the decisive Game 7 in L.A., offered his take on why teams have a disappointing encore performance.

“I think that demand on your time is more of the quote-unquote hangover than anything else. It’s just the time you didn’t get to devote to preparing for the season,” McCullers said. “I did all the media stuff, all the requests — sometimes two, three times a day — which plays into it as well. That’s not an offseason. That’s a media tour.”

Astros second baseman and defending AL MVP Jose Altuve said he wasn’t worried about his team suffering any hangover.

“The guys here are smart enough to know what they have to do in spring training,” Altuve said. “If you need to take it easy, you can take it easy. I think we’re going to be totally fine. I tell you what — I like what I see.”

It’s been quite a ride for the Houston Astros and their third baseman Alex Bregman. Barely a week ago, Houston won its first World Series, concluding a tough seven-game series against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Why This Tough, Wild World Series Was So Much Fun to Watch
All the debate and flip-flopping before the World Series didn’t make either the Dodgers or Astros any less thrilling to watch
During the series, Bregman played a critical role at the plate, contributing seven hits, five runs batted in (RBIs) and two home runs. Bregman also played a pivotal role as a part of the Astros’ world class infield, helping all-stars Jose Altuve, Carlos Correa, George Springer and the rest of Astros bring the Commissioner’s Trophy home to Houston. Bregman spoke to Rolling Stone Tuesday morning about the Astros’ 2017 season and the World Series.

You’re 23 and just completed only your second MLB season. And you’ve won the World Series. What’s that like?
It’s been a crazy whirlwind of events. You grow up dreaming about playing in the World Series since you’re a little kid. I remember the days in the back yard with my parents playing whiffle ball, saying, “Hey, it’s Game 7 of the World Series, are you gonna win or are you gonna lose?”

To be able to be part of such a great team and such a great coaching staff, it was just great to see the smiles on all the faces when we won.

You had two homers during the Series but, arguably, your most important hit was the base hit that broke the gridlock in Game 5. Talk about that moment.
It was a super special moment. I was in the on-deck circle when Springer walked. I looked over to the dugout and Correa said, “It’s your time. Let’s do this.” I thought to myself, Let’s find a way to get this done.

I went up there thinking that I would just take the first pitch and not swing. Next thing you know, I swing and the ball comes off my bat. And next thing you know, we’re celebrating. It was kind of a blur.
The Dodgers were touted as having the best pitching, mostly unhittable pitching in baseball. How did you and your teammates prepare for that?
They have an unbelievable pitching staff. I mean, Clayton Kershaw, future Hall of Famer. Kenley Jansen has been unhittable all year. Their bullpen was talked about as being the best in baseball.

The hit that really broke the ice for us was when Marwin Gonzalez took Kenley Jansen deep, to tie up Game 2. We ended up coming back and winning that game. And, I remember our team kind of having the weight of the world come off our shoulders. We suddenly knew, “All right, we can hit these guys, and we can score runs against this team.” The next thing you know, we score a ton of runs the rest of the series. So that one swing opened up the floodgates for our offense.

Houston Astros After Hurricane Harvey
“This storm has been devastating on a lot of levels, frustrating on a lot of levels, and inspiring on a lot of levels,” says Reid Ryan, Astros president of business operations
Your manager, A.J. Hinch, told Rolling Stone before the postseason that the Astros’ players really “like each other.” How much did that show up for you guys in the World Series?
The clubhouse chemistry was probably one of the best things we had going for us all year long. We added some veteran guys in the offseason that really brought this team closer together. The year before we had little cliques and we weren’t as tight knit. The Latin players kind of hung out with the Latin players, the American players hung out with American players.

When we returned this year, the whole team hung out with each other on and off the field. We [became] best friends and played like we were best friends on the field, and that was huge for us.

Does winning change that, or did you guys make a concerted team-building effort all year?
We had countless team dinners throughout the whole season that we didn’t have last year. Also when we’d be on the road and if the team had an off day, we’d all go to dinner together. During team dinners, everyone would have to stand up and speak —and speak in front of the whole team— which is unheard of. We started that after [the first game versus] Seattle, and it made a huge difference.

Obviously winning the series for Houston is a big deal, but probably more so after Hurricane Harvey. How much did that play in your mind in such a difficult series?

It kept us motivated the whole time. We knew we were playing with the city on our back, and we were trying to win it for them. We knew that they made it through Hurricane Harvey, so for them we had to make it through the Dodgers.

 

What’s it like to be on Saturday Night Live?
Fun. It was a seven-hour day. We had to show up early and rehearse three times. But honestly, it was really cool to see what goes on behind the scenes. I know that everyone there – from Springer to Altuve to me – enjoyed it, and we felt honored to be a part of it.

How’d it feel to hang with Leslie Jones and all the Yankees fans on the cast and crew knowing you broke their hearts in the ALCS?
[Laughing] They were giving us a hard time, and I gave Leslie a hard time. Leslie said, “I hope after the show, you get some rest.” And I said, “The Yankees have a head start on us.” And she said, “Yeah, well we have 27 more championships than y’all.”

Now that baseball is done, what are you going to do until spring training starts?
I know, for me, I’m going to be attending a lot of Houston Rockets basketball games, and some LSU football games, and enjoying the championship with some of my teammates who are going to be in Houston during the offseason. Also, getting some work in to get ready for the following year.

Word around the country is that Houston has excellent food, great steaks, etc. Do you have a favorite spot in your hometown, or favorite Houston specialty?
I go to a spot in Houston called Moonshiners. It’s famous for their brisket grilled cheese. I probably eat about four or five of those a week.

Cheap Authentic MLB Astros Womens Dallas Keuchel Jerseys 2018

The Houston Astros enter August sporting a 69-36 record that is far and away the best in the American League. Houston also owns the largest division lead in baseball, at 16 games, meaning it’s accurate to write that no team is more secure in their standing than the Astros.
Yet that doesn’t mean everything is cold Coca Cola and Reese’s cups in Houston. In fact, we know otherwise. That’s because ace Dallas Keuchel address the Astros’ quiet trade deadline on Tuesday, calling it “disappointing.” Here’s video of his comments:
WHEN ASKED ABOUT TRADE DEADLINE, KEUCHEL SAID: “I’M NOT GOING TO LIE. DISAPPOINTMENT IS A LITTLE BIT OF AN UNDERSTATEMENT.” PIC.TWITTER.COM/HUGK3M45JG— Brian McTaggart (@brianmctaggart) August 1, 2017
Keuchel isn’t alone in his assessment that Houston could have done more. Our own Matt Snyder labeled the Astros the biggest deadline loser, as their only add was Francisco Liriano — a veteran lefty whose 5.88 ERA and 1.72 strikeout-to-walk ratio should each improve as he’s shifted to the bullpen. Add in how the Astros are weathering injuries to various key players — Lance McCullers and Carlos Correa included — and how other AL teams — like, say, the New York Yankees — improved by leaps and bounds, and you can feel Keuchel’s disappointment.
None of this means the Astros are doomed. You’d probably be wise to pick them to represent the AL in the World Series. But for the first time this season, there’s drama in H-Town.
