Rodriguez Participates In Yankees First Full-squad Workout - Heraldstandard.com: Headlines Ap









Rodriguez participates in Yankees first full-squad workout

"I've said to him that he needs to worry about pleasing himself in a sense, and pleasing his teammates and taking care of his job, and not worrying about the reaction he's going to get," the manager added. "I'm sure there will be boos. But it won't be the first time. He's had to deal with it, and he's been able to shut it out. The important thing is his focus is on the field and go here now in the clubhouse." Teammates were supportive, too. First baseman Mark Teixeira, whose spring training locker in the same corner of the clubhouse as A-Rod's, said he is excited about his friend's return and that Rodriguez is "going to do everything possible to get himself back to being a productive player." "I spoke to Alex, when I saw him a couple of weeks ago, it was kind of like nothing ever happened.

Beasley, Williams Impress On 3rd Day Of Combine Workouts - Yahoo Sports









On the third day of workouts at the annual NFL scouting combine, Beasley pulled off an impressive double - posting the fastest 40-yard dash time of the day at 4.53 seconds and sharing the title of most bench press reps at 225 pounds with 35. Beasley did that despite weighing in at 246 pounds. The 302-pound Williams, who played defensive tackle in college, did nearly as well. Though he did not lift Sunday, Williams was clocked at 4.97 seconds in the 40 - the same time posted by Jameis Winston on Saturday and matching the fastest time turned in by an offensive lineman on Friday. Edwards worked out in the afternoon and turned in a 4.84 in the 40, finishing 13th out of 55 linemen, and his 32 reps were tied for fifth.

Moreover, he proved that he has that one elite skill you need to overcome size and strength issues as an NFL pass-rusher, with his exceptional straight-line speed (4.53 40-yard dash and 1.59 10-yard split, the latter of which is the stuff of elite edge rushers and a predictive measure for NFL success) that matches the quickness we see from him on tape. I think his performance solidifies him as a first-round pick, somewhere in the top 25. He's unlikely to be there http://www.prweb.com/releases/2013/10/prweb11222047.htm when the Dallas Cowboys pick at No. 27, but he makes a lot of sense for the Pittsburgh Steelers at No.

Aside from his taste in music whats not to like? He says this about Bruce Irvin: Hes a physical specimen, hes fast hes quick hes like a cat, like a cheetah. Thats who I model my game after. And then theres this quote: My style of play is speed, Im quick. Im tough. And this one: I bring a lot of high energy, an unstoppable motor, I go hard all the time, I do whatever Im asked youre going to get a gem. If he performs well enough today he could get into the top-15 mix.

was almost as good.

He was a top performer at his position muscle recovery guide book by Shin Ohtake in every category this week, including the 40 (4.53), bench press (35), vertical leap (41 inches) and 3-cone drill (6.91). DE Owa Odighizuwa (UCLA) ‐ Strong showing by the powerful Odihizuwa. He looked fluid in drills and proved to be one of the most athletic linemen with a 4.63 in the 40 and 127-inch broad jump. Losers LB Paul Dawson ‐ Look, the 40-yard dash isn't everything. But it's hard to justify a high pick at linebacker on a player that shows he isn't a premium athlete.

Rangers' Banister Basks In Glow Of 1st Workout As Manager - Yahoo Sports









''He's right where he needs to be and ready to go,'' general manager Jon Daniels said. Holland, who missed five months because of left knee surgery after tripping over his dog just before camp was to open last year, returned at the end of the season to go 2-0 with a 1.46 in six appearances, including five starts. ''I know it pained him not to be able to pitch sooner to right the ship last season,'' Daniels said. Texas did get some bad site news even before spring training started. The Rangers were hopeful second baseman Jurickson Profar 's decision to skip right shoulder surgery last season would give him a chance to fulfill his promise as a former top prospect. Instead, Profar could miss his second straight season because the switch-hitter's throwing shoulder wouldn't heal, and the 22-year-old is set for a procedure Monday. ''The last thing anyone in the organization wants is to lose a player to injury on Day 1, Day 2, Day 3 or Day 37,'' Banister said.
