But the Chicago Cubs president of baseball operations stopped short of providing a schedule for the injured starter’s return.

Darvish signed a $126 million www.brownsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-austin-seibert-jersey , six-year deal with the Cubs in February. He is 1-3 with a 4.95 ERA in eight starts and didn’t earn his first win until May 20 in Cincinnati. He went on the disabled list on May 26 with tendinitis in his right triceps.

Darvish suffered pain during a June 28 bullpen session in Los Angeles, which prevented him from throwing naturally. The 31-year-old traveled to the Dallas-Ft. Worth area the following day to get an opinion from Dr. Keith Meister, an orthopedic surgeon who is one of the Texas Rangers’ team physicians.

Darvish got a new diagnosis – right elbow impingement and inflammation – as well as a cortisone shot. The Cubs said it would take several days for the injection to ”settle in.”

”I think it’s been a good couple of days for him, but he’s still in that strengthening mode,” Epstein said Friday before the Cubs hosted the Cincinnati Reds. ”We’re not going to set any timetables yet until he moves from the strengthening phase to the throwing phase.

”A lot of it depends on how he continues to feel and how the throwing goes,” Epstein added. ”We won’t rush him.”

Meanwhile, slugger Kris Bryant Trysten Hill Jersey , out since with June 22 with left shoulder imflammation, batted on Friday and ”had a really good day in the cage,” Epstein said.

Bryant was eligible to return from the disabled list on Tuesday. The 2016 National League MVP could return to the Cubs any day or go on a brief rehab assignment.

Bryant is batting .280 with nine homers and 36 RBIs in 66 games this season.

”We’re going to get together to see whether he wants or needs a rehab assignment just to test it in a game situation before he comes back,” Epstein said.

Bryant had been experiencing pain on his swing follow-through.

”The shoulder is an important joint to the swing, especially with the swing and finish he has,” Epstein said. ”I don’t know we expected it to be this long . he needs to execute his swing and feel good.”

RENTON, Wash. (AP) — When kicker Jason Myers became a free agent in the offseason following a Pro Bowl campaign last season www.cowboysauthorizedshops.com/authentic-connor-mcgovern-jersey , Seattle was near the top of his destination list.Good thing for Myers that Seattle special teams coordinator Brian Schneider had the kicker as the clear top option for solving the Seahawks‘ kicking situation.“The way I looked at it, when I evaluated college kickers, I had Jason Myers at the top of my board,” Schneider said Thursday.A year after losing a training camp competition in Seattle and watching Sebastian Janikowski claim the job, Myers is back with the Seahawks. But this time there is no competition.Coming off a season where Myers hit 33 of 36 field goal attempts and earned the first Pro Bowl selection of his career, the Seahawks are banking on Myers to solidify an unsettled position.“It feels the same. I was very comfortable with everybody last year. Big part of the reason why I came back,” Myers said. “Everything kind of felt like I never left in a way so just kind of building off what we did last year.”Seattle has sought stability at the kicking position since losing Stephen Hauschka in free agency after the 2016 season. The Seahawks opted for the Blair Walsh experiment in 2017 Tony Pollard Jersey , but he missed eight field goals that season, including missed kicks that played a major role in three Seattle losses. Last year, the Seahawks brought in Janikowski and Myers to compete for the job, but ultimately went with the veteran in what turned out to be his final season before retirement.Schneider said Seattle tracked every kick from offseason workouts through the early preseason games last season and Janikowski won the job in the eyes of the team.“It was fair, they told me to come out here and compete and that’s what I do. I do that whether it’s just me out here or somebody else,” Myers said. “I’m always trying to get better personally. That’s what I was doing last year and what I’m going to try and do this year.”Janikowski wasn’t bad, hitting 22 of 27 field goals Noah Fant Jersey , including three game-winning kicks. But Myers had the better season after being claimed off waivers by the New York Jets. The 27-year-old Myers kicked an NFL-record five field goals of at least 55 yards last season. He also had six field goals of at least 50 yards, setting a Jets franchise record. Myers set another team mark by making seven field goals against Indianapolis last season.He was the first Jets kicker to be selected to the Pro Bowl in franchise history.“(It was) a fresh start, kind of. What I went through two years ago, I took it as more of a learning experience than trying to get down on myself for getting let go in Jacksonville,” Myers said. “I took that as a positive and I knew I was hitting the ball well out here last year and it kept clicking back there in New York.”
