KANSAS CITY – Marcus Stromans major league debut may come sooner rather than later. Ted Larsen Jersey . But it will not be on the current road trip. Encouraged by Dustin McGowans start on Tuesday night at Kauffman Stadium, manager John Gibbons will hand him the ball again on Sunday in Pittsburgh and go with left-hander J.A. Happ on Monday in Philadelphia. "Well see where that takes us," said Gibbons. McGowan pitched into the seventh inning on Tuesday for just the second time this season. His spot in the rotation is vulnerable, with Gibbons on repeated occasions saying how much he values McGowan out of the bullpen. Happ, entering Thursdays series finale with the Royals, hadnt pitched in more than a week, a 2 2/3 inning performance against the Baltimore Orioles on April 23. He entered spring training with a spot in the rotation but posted a 20.57 ERA in four Grapefruit League appearances and missed time with inflammation in his back. His performance forced the Blue Jays to seek alternatives. Stroman, who turned 23 on Thursday, is coming off a 10-strikeout, one-walk, no-hit performance over six innings for the Triple-A Buffalo Bisons on Tuesday night. Along with Aaron Sanchez, he is considered a top pitching prospect and some in the organization believe he is major league-ready. GOSE RETURNS When the Blue Jays acquired Anthony Gose from the Astros on July 29, 2010, he was a hot prospect less than two weeks shy of his 20th birthday. Now, almost four years later, Gose is up for a second time this season and has been on the option train for a couple of seasons. Hes up when the Blue Jays need him and back in Buffalo when they dont. "Hes got to play and be productive," said Gibbons. "Its like anybody else. When it comes down to the big leagues its about production. Theres no secrets; you can hope guys are going to do something but eventually its all about production. Thats why its so hard to make it in the big leagues and stay for any length of time. Thats why guys come and go, bounce up and down. Big part of it is opportunity but when you get it youve got to take advantage of it." In 19 games with the Bisons, Gose is hitting .235/.350/.309. Hes walking at a higher clip than usual with 12 free passes in 81 plate appearances (14.8 per cent). "I think it was too cold for me to swing," Gose joked. "I wasnt trying to do anything different. I wasnt working on anything. I just walked a little bit more earlier on." He admits its difficult to get into a groove early in the International League season because of the weather. Games are often rained out; sometimes games are snowed out. "I think this year was much colder and a lot longer than last year, especially in other cities also," said Gose. "I dont know if its going to warm up. Its been freezing. I got here and its freezing too. Everywhere Im playing baseball its cold." ROSTER MOVES To accommodate the recall of Gose, the Blue Jays optioned infielder Jonathan Diaz to Triple-A Buffalo. Toronto also purchased the contract of infielder/outfielder Steve Tolleson. To make room for Tolleson on the 40-man roster, outfielder Moises Sierra was designated for assignment. The moves give the Blue Jays additional depth in the absence of Melky Cabrera, who was hit by a pitch on his left shin in Wednesday nights game and is listed as day-to-day. HIGH PRAISE FOR BAUTISTA Pointing out that Jose Bautista is good at baseball is a waste of everyones time. Nobodys splitting the atom with such an observation. Through the first month of the season, Bautista is baseballs leader in on-base percentage (.465) and on-base plus slugging percentage (1.065). His eight home runs prorate to a total of 48 over a 162-game schedule. Defensively, Bautista has one outfield assist and has come close on a couple of other occasions. His arm is feared by opposition baserunners. What arent so obvious to the viewing public are Bautistas contributions to game preparation. "Hes helped me out more than you can imagine, more than I ever imagined (he would)," said first-year outfield coach Tim Leiper. "When Im out there its like having another coach out there because number one, hes been in the league, hes seen everybody, he has great recall and he knows the game situations." When Bautista shifts to centerfield, which has happened in four games so far this season, Leiper jokes that his work day ends. Bautista takes charge and knows where he wants himself and his corner outfielders to be on each pitch. "From day one in spring training every fungo, every drill, 100-percent fundamentally correct every single time," said Leiper. "You watch him in the game, hes into every pitch, he doesnt take pitches off. Theres a reason why hes good at everything he does. Hes intelligent and hes into it. Hes as professional a guy as Ive ever been around." Dick Butkus Jersey . Both of Padakins goals came in the second period while Zane Jones added a single in the first period for Calgary (13-6-4). Hitmen goaltender Chris Driedger finished with 30 saves for the shutout. Alex Bars Jersey . These days, just about anyone can get a taste of the friendship that has blossomed between All-Star Kevin Durant and Oklahoma City Thunder teammate James Harden, most famous in the past two weeks or so for the elbow to the head he took from the Los Angeles Lakers Metta World Peace. http://www.cheapbearsjerseyschina.com/ .Voegele will next play Anna Schmiedlova of Slovakia, who saved 10 of 16 break points to defeat Annika Beck of Germany 7-6 (6), 6-4.Also, Marina Erakovic of New Zealand defeated eighth-seeded Caroline Garcia of France 6-2, 4-6, 6-4.ASHBURN, Va. - Jay Gruden said he shouldnt have been so brutally candid about Robert Griffin IIIs play. The Washington Redskins coach also took the blame for allowing the Washington Redskins to become too much about one guy.Griffin also stuck to the team script, repeatedly stressing that hes focused on San Francisco and saying little else during his weekly news conference.The Redskins needed a course correction after several days in which their quarterback was under siege on multiple fronts. Gruden and Griffin tried to settle things down a bit Wednesday, with the coach shifting more blame onto himself and RG3 doing his best to stay mum.Early on in the season when I first got the job, I knew there was going to be a lot of questions about Robert, Gruden said. But I want to try to make this thing about the Redskins and not about him, and somehow weve made it more about him than about the team. And thats my fault.Gruden said specifically that he went too far earlier this week when he detailed Griffins many fundamental flaws — including poor footwork and bad reads — in a 27-7 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.I think it was a mistake on my part, Gruden said. After a loss like that, were very disappointed in the way we played, and the question came up. ... I just answered it, the first thing that came to my mind, and sometimes the first thing that comes to your mind isnt the smartest thing, and it wasnt the right thing to do on my part.Corrections should be in-house with everybody involved. The play speaks for itself, the production on the field spoke for itself. I didnt have to really elaborate on any individual fundamental things.Gruden also wanted it made clear that the Redskins lost in part because he was outcoached by Tampa Bays Lovie Smith.Lovie had their team ready to play more than I had my team ready to play, Gruden said. And that was a direct reflection on me.Griffin, meanwhile, turned in a podium performance that would make Bill Belichick proud as the Redskins (3-7) began practice for Sundays visit to the San Francisco 49rs. As the New England Patriots coach is known to do, Griffin gave short, non-answers and used the exact phrase focused on San Francisco nine times.Jay wants me to play better. I want to play better, Griffin said. Were focused on San Francisco and making that happen, so thats all Ive got to say about that. Duke Shelley Jersey. Griffin was stung earlier this week by the implication that he had been overly critical of his teammates in his postgame remarks after the Buccaneers loss. In reality, Griffin spent much of that postgame news conference taking the blame for his six sacks and other aspects of his play, but he did add that great quarterbacks such as Aaron Rodgers and Peyton Manning dont play well if their guys dont play well.On Monday, Gruden piled on a bit, saying that: Robert needs to understand he needs to worry about himself, No. 1, and not everybody else. That was also when the coach gave the searing review of Griffins play.Griffin responded that same day on social media that its unfortunate that anyone would take a piece of my press conference and say I threw my teammates under the bus.Griffin didnt elaborate much on Wednesday. He did say that he had addressed the team, and that a large majority of the locker room has reached out to him in the last few days.On getting better as a quarterback, he said: Im in my second offence in this league. You know, just trying to hammer everything down and get better at my craft like Coach wants me to.Griffin said several times that he was doing what Gruden wants him to do, but he said his scaled-back appearance at the microphone podium wasnt specifically the result of coachs orders.No, he just wanted me to focus on me, Griffin said. And Im going to do that to the best of my ability. Im a quarterback, man. Ive got to help this team win.Griffins clashes with coach Mike Shanahan overshadowed last years 3-13 season. Asked to describe his relationship with Gruden, Griffin gave another short answer: Great.Gruden, for his part, said Griffin is at a stage right now in his career where we need to see improvements, but he also stressed that too much can be expected of the third-year player.We have such high expectations for these kids coming out of college that they should be at the same level as Peyton Manning and Tom Brady and Philip Rivers and Aaron Rodgers, Gruden said. Its not fair. Theyre going to have some growing pains.___AP NFL websites: www.pro32.ap.org and HYPERLINK http://www.twitter.com/AP_NFL___Follow Joseph White on Twitter: http://twitter.com/JGWhiteAP Cheap Jerseys China NFL Jerseys Cheap NBA Jerseys Wholesale NHL Jerseys Wholesale MLB Jerseys Cheap Soccer Jerseys China Wholesale NCAA Jerseys Wholesale Football Jerseys Wholesale Basketball Jerseys Wholesale Baseball Jerseys ' ' '
