Report: Rumors of imminent Rob Gronkowski trade have zero truth
Social media has been lighting up today with rumors of Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski getting traded, but don’t believe every rumor you see.
Tom E. Curran of NBC Sports Boston reports that there is zero truth to any talk of an imminent Gronkowski trade.
From 2016 to 2017, Céspedes led the Mets in RBIs (128) and OPS (.887), despite playing in a career-low 81 games last season. In 2016, Céspedes became the first Mets player since David Wright in 2008 to win a Silver Slugger Award. Céspedes, Carlos Beltrán (2) and Darryl Strawberry (2) are the only outfielders in Mets history to win a Silver Slugger. — Marder, ESPN Stats & Information
The 2016 ERA leader got off to a slow start in 2017, posting a 4.09 ERA prior to the All-Star break. By the end of the season Hendricks was back to form though. He posted a 2.19 ERA after the break, third best in baseball. — McTigue, ESPN Stats & Information
During the 2016 and 2017 seasons, Schoop proved to be one of the top power-hitting second basemen in the majors. In that time he ranked fourth in home runs (57) and extra-base hits (131) among second basemen. — McTigue, ESPN Stats & Information
The ball has the same zip, if not more, Ertz said, via Philly.com. It’s definitely coming.
Given the role that a quarterback’s legs play in generating zip on throws, Ertz’s assessment is a good sign for how Wentz’s knee has healed from last year’s injury. Stringing a few more good signs behind that one should have Wentz back to a full workload before too much more time goes by.
It gets worse for Florida: After suffering buyers’ remorse on a five-year contract extension they handed him the previous summer, the Panthers also shipped winger Reilly Smith to Vegas for a fourth-round pick. Smith had 22 goals and 38 assists for Vegas, forming an unstoppable top line with Marchessault and William Karlsson. What a blunder. What a blessing.
McNabb had been pushed out of the Kings’ rotation by the end of last season; even still, Los Angeles prayed that the Knights might take Dustin Brown’s or Marian Gaborik’s contracts off its hands. Few predicted that Brown would have a renaissance campaign this season; then again, it’s impossible to predict if he would have rebounded just as well on another team. Regardless, Vegas opted for the 27-year-old McNabb, who performed a bit above expectations as a regular, skating a career-high 20:09 per game.
