Duane Brown became the first of the Seattle Seahawks potential free agents after the 2018 season to have his future secured.
Brown and the Seahawks reached agreement on a multiyear contract extension on Saturday [url=http://www.officialcapitals.com/authentic-adidas-christian-djoos-jersey]Youth Christian Djoos Jersey[/url] , locking up the protector of Russell Wilson's blindside for the next few seasons. Brown tweeted that he looked forward to spending the rest of his career in Seattle, the final stop in a career where he's been one of the top left tackles in the game.
Brown, who will turn 33 years old next month, is a four-time Pro Bowl selection. NFL Network reported the new deal is for three years.
Seattle has a lengthy list of key contributors that will be free agents after this upcoming season, including linebacker K.J. Wright, defensive end Frank Clark, wide receiver Tyler Lockett and holdout safety Earl Thomas. While Seattle seems to be inching closer to a future separation with Thomas based around his holdout decision, the team was proactive in trying to make sure Brown finishes his career in Seattle.
Brown arrived in Seattle midway through the 2017 season after a contentious holdout with Houston in search of a new contract. He held out for six games and returned to the Texans in Week 8 of last season. He lasted just one game with the Texans before being to Seattle as the Seahawks looked to solidify some of its offensive line issues.
Even though he was going into the final year of his contract, Brown said he would not holdout going into the 2018 season and Seattle implied from the moment the trade happened it hoped to have Brown past the 2018 season.
Seattle coach Pete Carroll spoke Friday about the difference now of having Brown as part of the offseason program and at the start of training camp, rather than last season when he was trying to get acclimated at midseason.
"This is a real leader. He's a real man in that huddle and in the locker room, and we're very [url=http://www.officialcapitals.com/authentic-adidas-madison-bowey-jersey]Madison Bowey Jersey[/url] , very fortunate to have him," Carroll said. "Great worker, he's really an astute ball player, got a great voice in perspective, he's going to help other guys. Last year was right in the middle of everything. He couldn't have the effect but you could see the potential, and he's just taken off in the offseason and done a great job and he's a great factor for us right now. I love to have him on my team."
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — These are fun times for the defending World Series champion Houston Astros and trying times for the Kansas City Royals.
The Astros will seek their 11th straight victory Sunday when they close out a three-game series in Kansas City. It will conclude a 10-game Astros road trip in which they have won the first nine, making it the most successful 10-game trip in franchise history. Their previous best was 8-2 last year. They have scored at least six runs in six consecutive games.
“We’re having a good time right now, obviously, we’re in a good stretch,” Astros manager A.J. Hinch said. “And you have to enjoy the ups because there are a lot of times during the season where it can get frustrating.”
Dallas Keuchel picked up his first victory since May 13 [url=http://www.officialhockeyjetsshop.com/authentic-adidas-bryan-little-jersey]Bryan Little Jersey[/url] , allowing two unearned runs over six innings, while Max Stassi and Alex Bregman belted three-run homers as the Astros routed the Royals 10-2 on Saturday.
It has been an exasperating season for the Royals, who have lost five straight and 11 of 12. They are 2-12 in June, scoring 28 runs in 14 games. They fell to 10-25 at home.
They’ve also lost starting right fielder Jorge Soler for at least six weeks, probably longer, with a fractured left big toe.
“He had a CT scan that showed the crack isn’t big enough to warrant surgery right now,” Royals manager Ned Yost said. “We’ll check again in 10 days to see how it’s doing.
“He was very disappointed, very upset last night. I’ve never seen him that upset, a lot of words in numerous languages coming out of his mouth. He knew something was wrong. He was putting together a really, really good, solid year where he’s getting a chance to play every day and was doing some nice things.”
With the Royals’ Triple-A Omaha club playing Friday night in Tacoma [url=http://www.officialcapitals.com/authentic-adidas-nicklas-backstrom-jersey]Nicklas Backstrom Jersey[/url] , Wash., plus the two-hour time change, they did not have time to get a body to Kansas City for an afternoon game. They will announce Soler’s roster replacement Sunday.
“We’re not the Enterprise, you can’t beam them up,” Yost said.
Meanwhile, first baseman Lucas Duda will join the Storm Chasers on Sunday in Reno to begin a minor league rehab assignment. Duda hit .256 with four home runs and 19 RBIs in 37 games before going on the disabled list May 14 with right foot plantar fasciitis.
Rookie right-hander Brad Keller will make his fourth career start and 25th appearance in the series finale. Keller, who is a Rule 5 draft pick from the Arizona Diamondbacks, is 1-2 with a 2.31 ERA.
Keller is coming off his longest major league start, going 5 1/3 innings in a no-decision last Sunday in Oakland against the A’s. He allowed two runs on five hits.
He has limited opposing hitters to 30 hits, while walking 13 and striking out 23 over 35 innings.
Keller will face the Astros for the first time. Two of his three starts have been against American League West opponents, posting a 2.79 ERA over 9 2/3 innings.
He ranks fourth among AL rookie pitchers with 24 appearances and an opponents’ batting average of .231.
He was primarily a starter in the minors. In 106 appearances [url=http://www.officialpenguinsproshop.com/authentic-adidas-matt-murray-jersey]Matt Murray Jersey[/url] , he made 100 starts, including the last 50, but had not pitched above Double-A before this year.
The Astros will counter with right-hander Lance McCullers, who is 8-3 with a 3.83 ERA in 14 starts. He has yielded 66 hits and 35 earned runs over 82 1/3 innings with 32 walks and 81 strikeouts.
McCullers, who has a career 27-19 record with a 3.64 ERA, is 1-0 with a 2.14 ERA in three career starts against the Royals. He had a 2.57 ERA in two no-decisions starts last season against Kansas City, allowing four runs on eight hits over 14 innings, while striking out 18 and walking two.
Salvador Perez has two hits, both home runs, in six at-bats against McCullers.
