SAN DIEGO (AP) —er prospect from the minor leagues http://www.brewersfanproshop.com/authentic-orlando-arcia-jersey , and this time it’s the best one yet.The Padres selected the contract of 21-year-old Luis Urias, one of baseball’s top prospects who is expected to be their second baseman of the future.Urias was set to bat second against Felix Hernandez in his big league debut in the opener of a two-game series against the Seattle Mariners on Tuesday night.Urias’ promotion comes as the rebuilding Padres are on pace to lose 100 games for the first time since their infamous Fire Sale season of 1993.The Padres brought up Urias even though Triple-A El Paso has qualified for the Pacific Coast League playoffs.“We felt like he’d done enough in the month of August,” manager Andy Green said. “He played really, really well. He was kind of challenged at the beginning of the month to kind of step up his game because there was the belief he had more inside of him and he did a great job. He’s a guy we’ve been talking about all year that the time would come, and when would the time be, and we got to the point where felt the time was now. It gives him the opportunity to play over a month in the big leagues the rest of the year.”The arrival of Urias marks the beginning of another wave of talent coming from the prospect-rich farm system to the big league squad, which at 50-83 has the worst record in the NL.He hit .296 with a .398 on-base percentage with Triple-A El Paso. He hit eight homers and drove in 45 runs, with 67 walks and 109 strikeouts.Urias signed with the Padres as an international free agent in December 2013 when he was 16.His first call after the promotion was to his parents in Mexico.“I always thought it would be a great feeling. It was something that I cannot explain right now,” Urias said. “I was so happy, especially when I called my dad and my mom. That was a feeling that I will never forget.”The Padres have one of worst offenses in the majors. Green knows bringing in one guy won’t radically change the production.“He’s a guy we believe in Jesus Aguilar Jersey ,” Green said. “We love his on-base skills. It’s a good spot in the lineup. Just in general we’ve struggled to get on base, and he’s always done that very well. Whether he starts off doing that well in the big leagues or it takes a little while, we believe he’s going to do that very well for a long time.”“I’m the player that I can get on base,” Urias said. “I think that’s my type of play, to put the ball in play and score a couple of runs.”Green said Urias will also play some at shortstop. Two teams at opposite ends of the American League Central Division standings will meet Friday night at Kauffman Stadium in the first contest of a three-game series.The first place Cleveland Indians (73-54) will face the fifth-place Kansas City Royals (38-90), who are 35 1/2 games behind division leading Cleveland.For the Indians, this will be the final three games on a seven-game two-city road trip to Boston and Kansas City. The Indians split a four-game series with the Red Sox, who have the best record in the majors. Now comes a three-game series with the Royals, who have the second-worst record in the league.Article continues below ...The Indians won the first two games in Boston, and lost the last two http://www.brewersfanproshop.com/authentic-orlando-arcia-jersey , including a 7-0 blanking by the Red Sox on Thursday. The only good to come out of Thursday’s game for the Indians was the return of right-hander Josh Tomlin, who was activated off the disabled list prior to the game and pitched the last three innings of Thursday’s blowout.That was the silver lining to the loss, according to manager Terry Francona.“Josh got into a good rhythm and gave us three innings, so now we go into Kansas City with our bullpen back to where it should be,” Francona said. “(Friday’s game) will be every bit as important to us as (Thursday’s game).”Friday’s pitching matchup will be Cleveland right-hander Mike Clevinger (9-7, 3.25 ERA) versus Kansas City right-hander Brad Keller (6-5, 3.32).Clevinger is coming off an 8-0 victory over Baltimore in his last start Sunday. In that game, Clevinger pitched six scoreless innings on seven hits, with seven strikeouts and one walk. He was removed from the game because his pitch count was at 104.Clevinger has rebounded nicely from a midseason slump. After going 1-4 with a 4.85 ERA in five July starts, Clevinger is 2-0 with a 2.25 ERA in four August outings.In two starts against the Royals this year Travis Shaw Jersey , Clevinger is 1-0 with a 1.80 ERA. His last appearance against Kansas City was a 6-2 win on May 12, when he pitched 7 2/3 innings, allowing two runs and eight hits, with five strikeouts and no walks. In seven career appearances against the Royals, Clevinger is 4-0 with a 2.17 ERA.Keller has split the 2018 season between the starting rotation and the bullpen. In 14 starts, he is 5-4 with a 3.67 ERA. In 21 relief appearances, he is 1-1, 2.01.Keller’s last start was a 5-4 win over the White Sox on Saturday, when he pitched five innings, allowing one run and five hits http://www.brewersfanproshop.com/authentic-orlando-arcia-jersey , with five strikeouts and no walks. In his last six starts, Keller is 4-2 with a 3.65 ERA.Friday will be Keller’s first career start against Cleveland. He has made two relief appearances against the Indians this season, going 1-0 with a 0.00 ERA in 4 1/3 innings.The Indians will be without reliever Neil Ramirez, who was placed on the 10-day disabled list Thursday with lower back spasms.Despite losing their last two games in Boston, the streaking Indians come to Kansas City having won nine of their last 12 games. Cleveland is 15-6 in the month of August.The Royals have lost five games in a row and are 5-17 in August.
