A look at what’s happening around the majors tod


Old-Timers' Day is always a special occasion at Yankee Stadium Brian Burns Jersey , and this year's festivities are set to feature Hall of Famers Whitey Ford and Reggie Jackson, along with first-timers Andy Pettitte, Jason Giambi and current Yankees manager Aaron Boone. The fun begins before New York takes on Tampa Bay. The Yankees are the only team in the majors that regularly holds these events, and this marks the 72nd annual Old-Timers' Day in the Bronx - Babe Ruth and Ty Cobb were among those in attendance at the very first one on Sept. 28, 1947 http://www.panthersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-greg-little-jersey , two days before the Yankees hosted the Brooklyn Dodgers in the World Series opener.

ASCENDING ASTROS

Houston has won 10 in a row overall, and the World Series champions aim to finish off a 10-0 road trip when Lance McCullers Jr. starts against the Royals. Coincidentally, the Astros had an 11-game winning streak end in Kansas City last year.

OUCH!

The Indians expect to know more about Carlos Carrasco, a day after the right-hander was struck in his pitching arm by a line drive from Minnesota's Joe Mauer. The team announced Carrasco was diagnosed with a forearm contusion; manager Terry Francona said the pitcher was struck on the elbow.

OH THOSE O'S

The Orioles try to avoid a team-record 12th straight home loss when they face Miami. Baltimore has the worst record in the majors at 19-50, including nine losses in a row overall. Dylan Bundy (4-7) starts for the O's against rookie Trevor Richards Will Grier Jersey , who earned his first big league win on Tuesday against San Francisco.

HARDLY HARPER

Bryce Harper's batting average has dropped to .221 after he went 0 for 4 and struck out twice Saturday at Toronto. The former MVP still leads the National League with 19 home runs.

"What I think I'd like for him to do is maybe not swing so much," Washington manager Dave Martinez said. "He's been swinging a lot, and I really think now is the time to take less swings and just go play."

REMEMBER ME?

Yovani Gallardo, who has pitched for three different major league teams since leaving his hometown Rangers after the 2015 season, is expected to start for Texas at home against Colorado. The 32-year-old righty has been at Triple-A since signing a minor league deal in April after being designated for assignment by Cincinnati.

LOOKING GOOD

Cardinals rookie Jack Flaherty (3-2 http://www.panthersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-christian-miller-jersey , 2.96 ERA) gets the Sunday night start at Busch Stadium. The 22-year-old righty opposes Jose Quintana (6-4, 4.10) and the Cubs.

The Steelers will have Bud Dupree tonight. The team had listed him as questionable after he injured his pectoral against the Broncos last week. He was a full participant in Friday's practice.Cornerback Cameron Sutton, who missed practice during the week for personal reasons, is inactive. The Steelers also won't have safety Morgan Burnett, who has a back injury.The Steelers' other inactives are quarterback Mason Rudolph Jordan Scarlett Jersey , receiver James Washington, offensive tackle Zach Banner, offensive tackle Marcus Gilbert (knee) and defensive end L.T. Walton.The Chargers already had ruled out nose tackle Brandon Mebane (not injury related), running back Melvin Gordon (knee) and offensive tackle Joe Barksdale (not injury related). Receiver Tyrell Williams (quad) will suit up after being listed as questionable.Los Angeles' other inactives are cornerback Jeff Richards, defensive end Chris Landrum David Montgomery Jersey , center Cole Toner and offensive guard Forrest Lamp.
