Javier Baez wants to participate in the Home Run Derby.
The 25-year-old Cubs infielder told ESPN earlier this week he’d like to enter this year’s event. Baez has hit a team-leading 14 home runs so far this season.
Such a void prompted the signing of Barkevious Mingo. Given http://www.bearsfootballonline.com/WOMENS_YOUTH_MIKE_DITKA_JERSEY.html how great Wagner and Wright are, the Seahawks could afford to take a chance on the former Colt and 2013 first-rounder of the Browns.
File Mingo with Jordan and Smith as players trying to boost Seattle’s pass rush on third downs. That’s a big ask, because Mingo at best has been a plugger in 3-4 schemes with only nine sacks in five seasons. If Mingo doesn’t pan out, rookie Shaquem Griffin should get a path to key snaps outside.
The Seahawks’ front seven includes several unpredictable pieces. They’re hoping Norton Jr. can put together a pretty picture without creating more of a puzzle.
Connecticut tied the suspended game in the top of the eighth, only to have Vermont score in the bottom of the ninth on a bases-loaded walk and claim a 5-4 victory.

Connecticut pitchers Jack O’Loughlin (four) and Billy Lescher (three) held Vermont hitless for the first seven innings of the nightcap. O’Loughlin, an 18-year-old native of Australia, was making his U.S. professional debut. He allowed just one baserunner (he hit Robert Mullen with a pitch more on Mullen in a second) and struck out five.
Because the contest had been shortened to seven innings, the eighth became the first extra inning. Enter the experimental rule.
Beginning this year, all extra innings in the minors start with a runner at second base and none out. Connecticut stranded its runner in the top of the eighth after three consecutive strikeouts. In the Womens Mike Ditka Jersey bottom of the eighth, Vermont, still hitless, got runner Javier Godard to third Authentic Sergio Romo Jersey base with one out against reliever Aaron Fernandez. The next batter, Mullen, singled home Godard.
