The Tampa Bay Buccaneers haven’t given up on young kicker Roberto Aguayo, but they may be hedging their bet by signing veteran kicker Nick Folk Saturday..
The Bucs were widely ridiculed for drafting Aguayo in the second round of the 2016 NFL draft, and they actually traded up into that spot to select the former Florida State kicker. The rookie struggled last season, hitting only 22 of 31 field goal attempts (71 percent), the lowest percentage of any NFL kicker. He made just four of 11 attempts from beyond 40 yards.
The Cubs don’t have a prototypical leadoff hitter, instead they will likely rely on a combination of Schwarber, Ben Zobrist and possibly Albert Almora Jr.
The Rangers (17-20) have now won four straight games, but still have a lot of ground to make up in the AL West behind the Astros. Starting pitching has been a concern for Texas this season, but Andrew Cashner allowed just one run in six innings Friday, lowering his ERA to 2.43 in the process.
Gallo has been a revolution in the power department this season, but he is still hitting just .203 with a brutal 54 strikeouts in 118 at-bats. His heroics were great, but he needs to become more consistent in the long run.
