Sale is 12-4 with a 1.97 ERA that leads the AL.“It’s going to be during the homestand, but we don’t know which series,” Cora said of Sale. “We’re very positive he should be on the mound soon.”Price http://www.oriolesfanproshop.com/authentic-darren-o_day-jersey , who has a bruised left wrist, is 14-6 with a 3.60 ERA. The Red Sox hope Price also will be able to throw off a mound this week in Atlanta as he works his way back. A line drive struck his pitching wrist against Miami on Wednesday.“It should be Houston or the next series,” Cora said. “We’re not worried. He’s in good spirits. He should be fine.” CARLSBAD, Calif. (AP) — The Los Angeles Dodgers have exercised their option on Dave Roberts’ contract for 2019 while continuing to work on a long-term deal for the manager who has taken the team to consecutive World Series.Andrew Friedman Frank Robinson Jersey , the Dodgers president of baseball operations, says the team is “optimistic about working something out long-term.”“The reason that we’ve kind of slowed down a little bit is we’ve got a lot of coaching staff decisions to make and interviews,” Friedman said Wednesday at the general manager’s meetings. “I think it speaks more to the optimism that something is going to definitely get done and allows us to kind of focus on what we need to near-term.”Roberts just finished his third season as the Dodgers’ skipper, when Los Angeles lost the World Series in five games to the Boston Red Sox. The Dodgers lost the 2017 World Series in seven games to the Houston Astros.He has led the Dodgers to seasons of 91 http://www.oriolesfanproshop.com/authentic-ubaldo-jimenez-jersey , 104 and 92 wins, and is 287-200 overall.
