Even if the Miami Dolphins use their first-round pick to draft a quarterback, Ryan Tannehill will be the starter, without question, in 2018.
Team executives made that crystal clear on Wednesday, according to Omar Kelly of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.
Lindor waved both arms at the crowd after crossing the plate, then came out for a curtain call as delirious fans shouted his name. That started the undoing for Odorizzi, who was cruising before giving up three homers in a span of 10 pitches — the last two by Ramirez and Brantley ending his night and giving the Indians a 4-0 lead.
Twins CF Byron Buxton, who was slated to start and bat eighth, was scratched about three hours before game time with a migraine. Robbie Grossman took his spot and started in right, and Max Kepler slid over to center.
San Juan’s Bernie Williams, a four-time World Series winner with the Yankees, performed The Star-Spangled Banner on his guitar. Carlos Beltran threw out the ceremonial first pitch, and fellow Puerto Ricans Roberto Alomar, Carlos Baerga, Javier Vazquez and Carlos Delgado were among those on the field for pregame events.
Crosby missed much of the 2016 season with a foot injury, but returned to the starting lineup for the Ducks in 2017 and saw time on both the left and right sides during his college years. He should be available when the Giants pick in the second round — they have the No. 34 pick — and could hang around to the third round as well.
Tackle should be a spot of interest for the Giants under any circumstances, but Ereck Flowers’ decision not to show up for offseason work may make it a bigger priority.
You’ve got to ride the wave, Cora said. We’re playing good baseball, but they don’t even know how many games they’re winning. They just prepare and execute.
David Price (2-1) yielded three hits and four walks over five comfortable innings as the Red Sox improved to 14-2, extending the AL’s best start since 1987 by winning the opener of a three-game series between two clubs off to impressive starts.
