Brian Snitker has a two-year contract for onl

Berichtdoor zhangzk » 19 apr 2019, 04:02

It’s little wonder that Snitker http://www.royalsfanproshop.com/authentic-ryan-goins-jersey , who turns 63 on Wednesday, said Monday he never assumed he’d be asked to return as manager even after leading Atlanta to a surprise NL East division title and its first playoff berth since 2013.“I’ve been around long enough to know you’re never guaranteed tomorrow in this business,” Snitker said after his two-year deal was announced by general manager Alex Anthopoulos. The deal includes a club option for 2021.Snitker began his long run with the Braves as a minor league player in 1977 and spent 20 years as a minor league manager in addition to stints as Atlanta’s bullpen coach and third base coach. He said his only previous two-year contract came when Bobby Cox became general manager in 1985.Now, as a leading candidate to be NL manager of the year, he again has more than a one-year contract.“It does give you a sense of accomplishment, I guess,” Snitker said. “I feel really good about it. I feel good I have the opportunity to stay around longer and be a part of this.”Pitching coach Chuck Hernandez will not return. All other members of Snitker’s coaching staff also received two-year deals.Anthopoulos said it was his suggestion to replace Hernandez, who he said is “open-minded” about possibly returning in another capacity. Anthopoulos said Snitker had to be talked into replacing Hernandez.“The human being he is, I think he would have had continuity there. … I had some concerns. The more we talked about it, he understood,” Anthopoulos said.Snitker said “I was that guy” who was reassigned in 2013, moving from Atlanta’s third base coach to Triple-A Gwinnett’s manager.Snitker said Hernandez is a “wonderful, really good pitching coach,”“I get that in the process sometimes you want to go in a different direction,” he said.Anthopoulos wouldn’t elaborate on his concerns with Hernandez. He said there is no timeframe on hiring a new pitching coach and said the search could include internal candidates.Snitker was named interim manager in May 2016 after Fredi Gonzalez was fired. Snitker will be heading into his third full season as the club’s manager in 2019.Anthopoulos said he was impressed with Snitker’s leadership from the dugout.“When we did hit a bump in the road Drew Butera Jersey , lost four games in a row, he was steady,” Anthopoulos said. “Some guys panic.”After a third straight 90-loss season in 2017, the Braves improved to 90-72 with some of baseball’s best young talent, including Ronald Acuna Jr., Ozzie Albies and Mike Foltynewicz. They lost to the Los Angeles Dodgers in four games in the NL Division Series.“I love everything about what’s going on here from the front office to the organization,” Snitker said. “The whole thing is really solid. It’s got that vibe of what I remember from years ago.”The extension is sure to be met with approval in a young clubhouse. The players constantly praised Snitker and how he always had their back.“He did a remarkable job,” star first baseman Freddie Freeman said. “It’s really hard to handle 25 to 35 personalities, and he’s one of the best at it.”Anthopoulos said the team’s payroll will rise in 2019. Right fielder Nick Markakis is a free agent and adding bullpen help and a catcher to share time with Tyler Flowers could other priorities.The team boasts a deep supply of respected pitching prospects, creating the possibility Anthopoulos could look for an offseason trade instead of free agency to boost the lineup.Snitker became a manager for the first time in the Class A South Atlantic League at 26, and his star seemed on the rise when he joined the big league club as a bullpen coach in 1985.It didn’t last. He returned to the minors the following season, settling into a largely overlooked career as an organizational jack-of-all-trades. He managed at every level of the minors, from the rookie leagues to Triple-A, and got two more stints as a coach for the big league team. TORONTO (AP) — After getting blanked in back-to-back losses, the Detroit Tigers scored just enough runs Sunday to leave Canada on a winning note.Nicholas Castellanos had an RBI single in the 11th inning http://www.royalsfanproshop.com/authentic-ryan-goins-jersey , Jeimer Candelario got five hits and the Tigers beat the Toronto Blue Jays 4-3 despite blowing a late lead.“That was a huge win for us,” said shortstop Jordy Mercer, who preserved a 3-all tie with a defensive gem in the 10th inning. “I’m not talking record-wise, I’m talking about momentum. I’m talking coming together as a team, not giving up. That’s what good teams are made of.”Castellanos drove in catcher Grayson Greiner, and the Tigers salvaged a split of the four-game series to open the season. The decisive hit came off left-hander Thomas Pannone (0-1), Toronto’s eighth pitcher of the game.“It’s a really good feeling for the team,” Candelario said.Candelario drove in two runs and Daniel Stumpf (1-0) pitched one inning for the win. Toronto put a runner at third with two outs in the bottom of the 11th but Shane Greene got Teoscar Hernandez to line out for his second save.Candelario came in 1 for 12 on the season and 0 for 9 with seven strikeouts since his lone base hit on opening day. He singled in the first, sixth, seventh and 11th, and doubled in the ninth.“He had a great day, a super day,” Tigers manager Ron Gardenhire said. “Five hits in a ballgame is pretty special.”Trailing 3-0 in the eighth, the Blue Jays tied it against Joe Jimenez when pinch-hitter Rowdy Tellez hit a three-run homer to center field.The drive undid seven shutout innings by Tigers starter Matt Moore. Making his Detroit debut, the left-hander allowed two hits Cheslor Cuthbert Jersey , walked one and struck out six.Moore was perfect through four before walking Randal Grichuk on a 3-2 pitch to begin the fifth. Moore lost his no-hit bid with one out in the sixth when Richard Urena grounded a single up the middle. Danny Jansen’s two-out double moved Urena to third, but Moore escaped by fanning Brandon Drury.After doubling against Stumpf in the 10th, Urena tried to score from second on an infield single by pinch-hitter Freddy Galvis. Mercer, who had dived to his right to corral Galvis’ hit, threw home from his knees in time to retire Urena and send the game to the 11th.“That was probably the play of the game,” Greiner said. “That was incredible.”Scrambling after the loose ball, not looking at the runner, Mercer said he knew Urena was trying to score when he heard the crowd noise rise.“That’s when I knew I had one chance to pick it up and throw it,” Mercer said. “I just picked it up, turned and threw it. Luckily it was a good throw.”Gardenhire praised the veteran Mercer for keeping calm.“That was a big, big moment for us,” Gardenhire said.Detroit, which had mustered two runs through its first three games and none since the 10th inning on opening day, snapped a 24-inning scoreless drought with a three-run seventh. Javy Guerra issued a bases-loaded walk to Mercer before Candelario followed with a two-run single.Making his major league debut, Blue Jays right-hander Trent Thornton allowed two hits in five shutout innings. Toronto starting pitchers have worked 24 consecutive scoreless innings to begin the season Brian Flynn Jersey , tripling the previous club record. It’s baseball’s longest such streak since Atlanta starters threw 25 shutout innings to begin the 1994 season.Thornton struck out eight, the most by a Blue Jays pitcher making his first big league appearance. The previous record was seven, jointly held by Matt Boyd and Marc Rzepczynski.“I know Detroit is struggling at the plate, but his stuff (is) 94-95 (mph) with the breaking pitches and everything,” Blue Jays manager Charlie Montoyo said. “He could’ve gotten any team out.”YOUNG GUNThornton wasn’t the only Blue Jays pitcher to make his debut. Right-hander Elvis Luciano, who turned 19 in February, became the youngest pitcher in team history when he replaced Guerra in the seventh. Luciano, selected from Kansas City in the Rule 5 draft at the winter meetings in December, is the first big league player born in this century. He allowed one hit in 1 1/3 innings.“I wasn’t nervous at all,” Luciano said through a translator. “I was anxious because I really wanted to do the best I could for the team.”BIG 5-0Blue Jays pitchers combined to strike out 50 Tigers batters over the four games, a team record. Toronto struck out 48 Houston batters during a four-game series in July 2013.TRAINER’S ROOMTigers: Miguel Cabrera started at DH. Cabrera left Saturday’s game after being hit on the right hand by Aaron Sanchez’s pitch in the sixth.Blue Jays: Galvis (lower back) was scratched from the starting lineup and replaced by Urena. Galvis extended his MLB-leading streak of consecutive games played to 329 when he pinch hit. … LHP Clayton Richard (right knee) will not make his scheduled start Monday against Baltimore. RHP Sean Reid-Foley will start in his place. … Thornton started in place of LHP Ryan Borucki (left elbow). Borucki is expected to throw off a mound sometime this week.UP NEXTTigers: RHP Tyson Ross starts Monday in the opener of a three-game series at Yankee Stadium. Ross is 0-3 with a 6.88 ERA in six career games against New York.Blue Jays: Reid-Foley went 2-4 with a 5.13 in seven starts for Toronto last season.
