Lorenzo Cain was as confused as everyone else when Joe Maddon Cliff Pennington Jersey removed reliever Steve Cishek in the eighth inning of the Cubs’ matchup with the Brewers Tuesday.
Cishek then came back in to pitch for Duensing which actually resulted in even more shifting. Maddon this time moved Duensing to left and Cishek got Cain to ground out.
Even nuttier, Maddon then brought Duensing back again, only this time he put Willson Contreras in left instead of Cishek. Duensing then forced Christian Yelich to fly out to left field to end the inning.
In the end, the moves didn’t help the Cubs in the final score as Milwaukee won 1-0, but it certainly confused Cain and gave the Cubs a scoreless inning, so the moves did their job.
LHP Francisco Liriano. Liriano (hamstring) http://www.authentickansascityroyalshops.com/George-Brett-Jersey is expected to return from the disabled list this weekend. That would give him about six weeks to audition for pitching-needy clubs. Like Fiers, he has been serviceable this year (3.90 ERA/4.96 FIP, 1.21 WHIP), although his strikeouts have been down (7.0 per 9). He’s making just $4 million on a one-year contract.
RHP Shane Greene. The 29-year-old Greene could be an intriguing deadline option. He’s 15 for 18 in save opportunities this year despite a 4.02 ERA and he has two years of club control after this season. The production and http://www.authenticcincinnatiredsshops.com/Cliff-Pennington-Jersey contract should warrant at least a few trade discussions.
CF Leonys Martin. The veteran has bounced back from a lost 2017 season with the Mariners and Cubs. He’s playing every day in fact, most of the Tigers’ regulars are playing every day, because the bench is thin and producing (.805 OPS, nine home runs, three defensive runs saved). Even better, he’s making just $1.75 million George Brett Womens Jersey this year and will be arbitration-eligible in 2019. Teams hunting for outfield depth should be calling Avila.
