Parker has one of the worst walk rates in the league among starting pitchers. He’s given up 22 walks in 40 2/3 innings. Parker struggles with strikeouts in his first three games, but has been far more consistent lately. The walks, however, remain an issue.

nchester City face a battle to keep hold of Kian B


starting pitcher flopped in his first two seasons in the majors, to the point that he did not even earn a spot in the rotation despite making 25 starts a year ago. In two starts since being recalled, however, he has looked more major-league ready this time around, racking up big strikeout numbers in his first two starts.

Lyles has 12 strikeouts and just three walks in his first 10 innings of work after posting just 6.3 strikeouts per nine innings last year and 6.41 in 2011. The key for Lyles will be whether he can sustain this strikeout rate, as his minor-league numbers have not hinted at dominant swing-and-miss potential in the past few years.

When Lyles established himself as a prospect worth watching, he put together consecutive seasons of at least 8.0 strikeouts per nine innings. He has been below 7.0 in each full season since, in both the majors and minors. It is a good sign that he has induced a swinging strike on 14eve Bruce has spoken of working with Liverpool fullback Kieran Tierney.Bruce signed the Scotland skipper for £2.85m in 2014 and he spent three years at the KCOM Stadium before making the switch to Merseyside where, like Van Dijk, he has become a key.1 percent of his pitches so far, compared to just 6.9 percent a year ago.

Yankees acquire Chris Nelson for either cash or PTBNL


| | | |

The have acquired third baseman , the club announced Wednesday night in a press release.

Nelson was designated for assignment Sunday to make room for top prospect . In return for Nelson, the Rockies will get either cash considerations or a player to be named later. No matter which it is, the return will be relatively small, as it always is in cases like these. The reason is that once a player is designated for assignment, his club has 10 days to either trade him, release him or send him to the minors — thus, there’s very little leverage in trade talks.

Nelson, 27, was the Rockies’ first-round pick in 2004 out of Pasadena City College. He’s seen time in the majors at second, third and shortstop, but the overwhelming majority of his time has been spent at third base, and that’s where the Yankees have a current need with Kevin Youkilis — who was there to take Alex Rodriguez’s spot — on the mend.

Though off to a rough start in 2013 — .242/.282/.318 in 71 plate appearances — Nelson hit .301/.352/.458 with 21 doubles, three triples, nine homers and 53 r Claudio Marchisio has been held at gunpoint at his home in Turin.Marchisio, 33, was with wife Roberta when four armed and masked men on their preseason tour of Australasia, according to reports.The Belgium international is desperate for a move to Inter Milan this summer.The two clubs have begun discussions over a potential deal, with United demanding at least £75m for the 26-yea brokrpool midfielder Mohamed Sissoko has announced his retirement.He confirmed his decision when appearing on the Footissime show on RMC Sport 1.Sissoko, also once of Juventus, said: “If I am here this evening, it is to tell you that it is the end for mee into his home at around 7:30pm on Tuesday night, reports Gazzetta dello Sport.The group are believed to have RBI in 111 games last season for the Rockies.

While Nelson is essentially being picked up by the Yankees off the scrap heap, they’ve done so with a handful of players currently on the 2013 roster — and it’s working out very well so far, with the Yankees off to a 17-10 start.
