Colon isn’t counted on yet

first_imgColon, who suffered some rotator cuff damage last season, is throwing from flat ground with his graduation to a mound two or three weeks away at best. “There are some hurdles he needs to clear, but the time frame hasn’t changed that much from what we talked about,” Scioscia said. “I think it’s probably a stretch to see him ready by opening day.” TEMPE, Ariz. – While Bartolo Colon is aimed toward making the opening-day roster, manager Mike Scioscia hardly painted as optimistic a picture. Scioscia, speaking during a brief respite between staff meetings Wednesday, said he does not expect Colon to pitch in a Cactus League game this spring and would be happy simply if the right-hander threw from a mound before camp ended. The regular duo of play-by-play man Steve Physioc and color commentator Rex Hudler will be reduced to about 100 telecasts this season. The remaining 50 local broadcasts will be handled by play-by-play man Jose Mota and color commentator Mark Gubicza. The Angels agreed to contract terms with six players: right-handers Jose Arredondo and Steven Shell, infielder Matt Brown, outfielders Terry Evans and Nick Gorneault and catcher Bobby Wilson. Another 16 players on the 40-man roster are expected to be signed in the upcoming days. Juan Rivera’s broken leg in winter ball means Chone Figgins will continue to be on call for a number of positions, even though he is being aimed at the starting third base job. Scioscia said Figgins is being looked at as the probable fourth outfielder to go along with his third-base duties. Tommy Murphy and Reggie Willits also are vying for the backup outfielder job. There still is no further timetable on Rivera’s return. Scioscia expects him to be in Arizona for a examination by staff doctors possibly in two weeks. Rivera currently is being seen by a doctor in Florida. Kendry Morales, who had knee soreness in winter ball, was given clearance to begin camp on time. Position players report Monday with the first full-squad workout on Tuesday. Frankie Rodriguez has experienced visa problems the past few seasons which delayed his arrival in camp, but Scioscia does not foresee any late arrivals this year.

You’re all set!center_img The Angels are resigned to a best-case scenario of Colon pitching some time in the first half. While his return could happen by the start of May, it could be delayed into June if he can’t get rehabilitated and build stamina in short order. “You try to (think) for the long term, too,” Scioscia said. “He has to be stepped up to a certain pace to make sure he holds up for this year. And in the future, we want to be careful when moving forward.” Scioscia hinted that mound work could be two weeks away but quickly backed off that. “He’s got a good amount of work ahead of him before he gets on the mound,” he said.

Wenger rumours – ‘I don’t think there was a chance’ Flamini tells talkSPORT

first_img1 Arsene Wenger signed a new contract with Arsenal Arsenal midfielder Mathieu Flamini believes there was no chance of boss Arsene Wenger leaving the club at the end of last season, praising the Gunners chief’s impact on the club and his career.Prior to the club’s FA Cup victory in May, rumours claimed that Wenger was considering his future at the Emirates, but he quelled such speculation by agreeing a three-year contract extension.Speaking at the launch of Arsenal’s new Puma manufactured home and away kits, Flamini told talkSPORT that he didn’t think for one second that Wenger would leave though.“To be honest I don’t think there was a chance [of Wenger leaving].“He means so much to this club and he’s done so much for this club and Arsene Wenger for me represents Arsenal.“He has been here for so long and he brought the club from one stage to another one, so I was not surprised when he signed a new contract.”Flamini was brought to north London as a 20-year-old by Wenger and – perhaps fittingly – commented on his own situation as he modelled Arsenal’s alternative away strip dubbed the ‘future’ edition.“This club means a lot to me. It’s played a big role in my career and Arsene Wenger has too, as he’s the one who bought me when I was 20 years old. I feel at home here.“If you ask me whether this will be my last club, I don’t know because I’m still 30 years old, I still have a few years in front of me. I really feel at home here and hopefully we have a positive year.”last_img read more
