SEATTLE -- The Boston Red Sox got their biggest trade deadline acquisition from within. Mark Clayton Jersey .Top prospect Andrew Benintendi joined the team Tuesday prior to 5-4 loss at Seattle following a promotion from Double-A Portland. The plan was to get the 22-year-old outfielder comfortable with the big club before starting him in left field on Wednesday.Its something Ive dreamed of since I was a kid and to finally be here, its an unreal feeling, Benintendi said. Im just going to go out there and contribute the best I can, stick with my game.He pinch hit and stayed in to play left field Tuesday night, going 0 for 2 and striking out to end the game.Benintendi was the seventh overall pick in the 2015 draft as a sophomore out of Arkansas. Hes since emerged as one of the top prospects in baseball after hitting .312 with nine homers, 76 RBI and 16 stolen bases this season between Class A Salem and Double-A Portland. He has 20 homers and 26 stolen bases in 151 minor league games.The left-handed hitter also draws strong marks for his plate discipline, posting a .378 on-base percentage this year.Benintendi played center field in the minors, but with Jackie Bradley Jr. entrenched in center and Mookie Betts in right, Benintendi will break in as a left fielder. Initially, the plan is to platoon him with right-handed hitting Bryce Brentz.This is a young player thats advanced through the system obviously very quick, Red Sox manager John Farrell said. A talented guy, theres a lot of excitement around him. But theres no question that theres still going to be a learning curve for him here.Hes going to be down the bottom-third of the order. We dont need to make any more of a focal point of his presence here with his placement in the order. Weve got a very good, young and diverse lineup. We just want him to go out and play, play to his abilities.Boston President of Baseball Operations Dave Dombrowski said he tried finding outfield talent before Mondays non-waiver trading deadline but the cost was too high. He said his scouts kept pushing Benintendi as the guy, even though he has had a brief professional career.It came down to, we think he can come up here and contribute to our club and help us win, Dombrowski said.Benintendi is the first Red Sox prospect to reach the majors the season after he was drafted since Fred Lynn in 1974.I never expected that, he said. I think Mr. Dombrowski has said before that hes done it a few times. It was a pleasant surprise, and Im extremely excited to be here. Mark Duper Womens Jersey . Michell Burger, a woman who lives on an estate next to Pistorius gated community, said she and her husband were awoken by the screams in the pre-dawn hours of Feb. 14 last year, when Pistorius killed Reeva Steenkamp by shooting four times through a door in his bathroom. Nat Moore Dolphins Jersey .S. hockey team after paying his dues as an NHL general manager for more than three decades and giving up a lot of his free time to help USA Hockey. . "Thank you for the warm welcome," Beckham said on an 80-degree February morning. In this case, it was soccer weather. The sport moved a step closer to returning to South Florida on Wednesday, when Beckham confirmed he has exercised his option to purchase a Major League Soccer expansion franchise in Miami. Okay, Mark Casse -- freshly christened member of the Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame, trainer of Tepin, Catch a Glimpse, and Lexie Lou, among others -- think youre hot stuff? Lets see what you can do with the enigmatic Noble Bird against Frosted on Saturday in the 89th running of the Whitney at Saratoga.Talk about bringing a butter knife to a gunfight.Of course, Casse does not think hes hot stuff, but when reached Thursday morning at Saratoga, he was still glowing from the Hall of Fame ceremonies the night before at the Mississagua Convention Centre near Woodbine. He was gracious and grateful in his acceptance speech, noting in awe the company of trainers he has joined that includes Lucien Laurin, Horatio Luro, and Roger Attfield, and his thank-yous were liberally spread among his owners, his horses, and the stable crews of his several training outposts.What Casse could not do, however, was finish his speech. With his voice cracking with emotion, he turned the podium over to his wife and racing partner, Tina Casse, and stood aside while she read his dedication to his father, the widely respected horseman Norman Casse, who died this year.With this honor, I spent a lot of time in reflection, Casse said. It seems that time is flying by now, but as you look back, as its going, sometimes its a little hard to enjoy it. As Allen Jerkens said when he was asked if everything was okay: When youre a horse trainer, everything is never okay.At 55, Casse was in his first year of eligibility for the Canadian Hall. The native of Indiana got there by winning the Woodbine training title 11 times, eight Sovereign Awards, and Canadian Horse of the Year with Sealy Hill, Uncaptured, Lexie Lou, and Catch a Glimpse. Taking Breeders Cup races last year with Catch a Glimpse and the champion Tepin didnt hurt either.Someone came up to me about a year ago and said how wonderful it must be to train all those good horses, Casse said. I just smiled and said yes. But as we all know, there is always something to worry about. Dont get me wrong, Im not complaining. And I love my life. But Ill tell you one thing: Ive grown to have a greater respect for Bob Baffert and Todd Pletcher and those kind of guys.The feeling should be mutual. Casse first penetrated the North American top 10 in earnings in 2011 and has been there since, currently rolling fourth behind Pletcher, Chad Brown, and Steven Asmussen.With his assistant and son, Norman Casse, the elder Casse rocked the racing world last spring wwhen they sent out Robert Mastersons Tepin to beat the best milers Europe could muster in the Queen Anne Stakes at Royal Ascot. Cameron Wake Womens Jersey. The mare has been back in steady training, looking for a path to a defense of her title in the Breeders Cup Mile.Shes been struggling a bit with Saratogas main track -- its so deep and tiring, Casse said. So, were trying to figure out how to cope with that and get her ready for whatever is next. But were dealing with it, and shell be fine.While Tepin has been as reliable as the dawn, John Oxleys Noble Bird has been a puzzlement. Making his 17th start, the 5-year-old son of Travers winner Birdstone finds himself among five entered against Frosted in the $1.25 million Whitney, at 1 1/8 miles on the main track.All Casse and his jockey, Julien Leparoux, need to do is flip the 18 lengths or so that separated Frosted and Noble Bird at the end of the Met Mile at Belmont Park on June 11. That was the day Frosted freaked, winning by an official 14-1/4 lengths in a performance so off-the-wall remarkable that it stole the show from the featured Belmont Stakes and anything else that happened in horse racing that day.Its not a matter of finding those 18 lengths in Noble Bird, Casse said. What we need is for Frosted not to go throwing a 123 Beyer at us again. If he could regress a little bit, that would be very helpful.To describe Noble Bird as inconsistent is an understatement. Casse thought he had a classic colt on his hands when Noble Bird was a 3-year-old, but he did not win a maiden race until August of that year in his fifth start. At 4, he defeated Lea and Hoppertunity in the Stephen Foster Handicap, and this year he won the Pimlico Special by 11-1/4 lengths. In between, though, there were sprinkled grim efforts that baffled both Casse and his jockeys.Hes the toughest horse to ride Ive ever trained, Casse said. He can make good riders look bad. He breaks a little slow, and then he wants to run off. But if you take too much of a hold, hell stick his head straight up in the air, and the rider will fall back on the saddle.But he is a Grade 1 winner, Casse added, and he loves Saratoga. Hell work as good as a horse can work over that surface. So, if he brings his A game, hell run really well. If he doesnt, it doesnt matter where you run him. It doesnt make sense, so you might as well run for a lot of money.
