It took just one day back in the Arizona Cardinals facility for Josh Rosen to sign his rookie deal.
The No. 10 overall pick in the 2018 draft signed his four-year rookie contract Thursday, one day before the Cardinals are to begin their three-day rookie minicamp.
The contract will pay Rosen nearly $17.84 million over four years with a signing bonus of about $11 million. As with all first-round rookie deals, the former UCLA quarterback’s contract includes a fifth-year option for 2022.
There’s a mental toughness component to all of this. The tougher mentally you are, you can be put in sub-optimal conditions and that’s what separates you from the competition. I admire the mentality of throw me anywhere. Going through (Nick) Markakis and (Freddie) Freeman in the sixth one night and the eighth the next, you should want that spot.
What spot will Neris be in the next time he enters the game?
I’m not going to rush him out there. I don’t want to expose him. I mean, he’ll be ready when he’s ready and when we feel he’s ready, Pederson said.
The Yankees (27-12) avoided their first losing streak of more than two games this season. They had lost consecutively four times this year. They started the day tied with the Red Sox for first place in the American League East.
Gary Sanchez, rookies Miguel Andujar and Gleyber Torres and Walker each have provided walk-off heroics.
We just never know what’s going to happen, Judge said. You never know who’s going to be the star of the game.
The Yankees got a huge assist from A.J. Cole. He hadn’t pitched since April 28 and then held the A’s scoreless in the 10th and 11th innings, striking out four batters.
Aroldis Chapman made the ninth inning an adventure.
