For some players http://www.tennesseetitansteamonline.com/a.j.-brown-jersey , it’s the first place where many scouts are able to watch them in person and if they have a great combine, it could make a huge difference in their draft stock.Getting drafted with the 25th pick compared to the 35th pick may not seem like a big deal to fans, but as a player it could be the difference in hundreds of thousands of dollars. Signing bonuses and contracts are all based around draft position, so the sooner one gets drafted, the fatter their wallet becomes. As a result, the NFL Draft Combine can change a scouts opinion and ultimately make that player some extra cash http://www.tennesseetitansteamonline.com/amani-hooker-jersey , which they wouldn’t have had before.The NFL Draft Combine is the most talked about combine in all of sports and although I am not a true believer in the combine, many scouts and teams take the combine extremely serious. Throughout the years, there have been many players who have been freaks during this ‘practice session’ and it has helped their stock tremendously heading into the NFL Draft.An amazing NFL Draft Combine doesn’t mean that the athlete is going to succeed in the NFL, but it can be a good measurement of their athleticism. With that being said, here are the top 15 combine freaks of all-time
Here’s a look at what’s happening around the major leagues today:
Mets star Jacob deGrom is expected to start at Miami. He was a late scratch Friday night because of what the team called a family issue – no doubt, many fans around the country thought deGrom might’ve been traded when they saw the ace had been pulled. DeGrom (5-3) leads the majors with a 1.69 ERA. He’ll face Marlins righty Pablo Lopez Taylor Rapp Jersey , making his big league debut.
Red Sox ace Chris Sale will try to extend his hex over slugger Aaron Judge when they meet at Yankee Stadium in the middle matchup of a three-game series. Sale has struck out the New York slugger more than any other pitcher – Judge has fanned 10 times in 15 at-bats against the lefty. Judge has three hits, including a home run, off Sale.
Bartolo Colon tries for his 245th career victory, which would tie Dennis Martinez for the most by a pitcher from Latin America. The 45-year-old Colon (4-5, 4.72 ERA) starts at home for Texas against White Sox lefty Carlos Rodon.
MONTH OF MAHLE
Reds rookie Tyler Mahle (6-6) tries to complete an undefeated month when he faces the first-place Milwaukee Brewers. The 23-year-old righty is 3-0 in five June starts with a 2.30 ERA. He’s been Cincinnati’s best young pitcher, leading NL rookies in wins. Milwaukee goes with Jhoulys Chacin (6-3).
Washington righty Jeremy Hellickson (2-0 Shareef Miller Jersey , 2.28) is expected to return from the disabled list to start at Philadelphia. He has been sidelined since June 4 with a right hamstring strain. He’s hoping for the same burst the Nationals enjoyed Friday night at Citizens Bank Park, when they hit seven homers in a 17-7 romp.
