    导出博客文章Detroit manager Brad Ausmus wondered aloud Friday about Michael Fulmers case for the All-Star game. David Savard Jersey . Fulmer didnt make it, but his 9-2 record and 2.11 ERA certainly deserve mentioning.At that pace, hed be in the Cy Young discussion if he kept it up for a year, Ausmus said.For now, Fulmer will have to settle for being a top candidate for American League Rookie of the Year honors. In a season where not everything has gone as planned for the Tigers, hes been perhaps the biggest reason theyre still very much in the mix for a postseason spot. When Detroit acquired Fulmer last year in the deal that sent Yoenis Cespedes to the Mets, the Tigers were hoping he could make a significant impact, but as with many prospects, there was no way to know it would happen so quickly.We saw him in spring for the first time and we knew he had electric stuff. He just had a little command issue in spring, teammate Jordan Zimmermann said. He came up, hes been throwing strikes and now hes got a changeup to go with his fastball and slider that are both `plus pitches. Hes been dominant the whole time. Hes fun to watch.Detroits rotation has been in a tough spot of late because of Zimmermanns injury problems and Anibal Sanchezs ineffectiveness. Fulmer, however, has been outstanding since making his debut in late April. Since May 27, hes made eight starts and gone 6-1, allowing only three earned runs in 50 1/3 innings.A lot of young guys come up and theyre throwers and not really pitchers. They have the velocity but they dont really know where its going, Zimmermann said. I feel like hes got the velocity and knows where its going. Usually the control comes later in your career. It seems like hes got it.Here are a few other rookies who have impressed during the first half of the season:COREY SEAGER and KENTA MAEDA, DODGERSSeager was impressive in a shorter stint with the Dodgers last year, and the talented shortstop has lived up to expectations in 2016, hitting .296 with 17 home runs and 41 RBI.Maeda turned 28 five days after making his major league debut in April. The Dodgers signed him to an incentive-laden, eight-year contract in the hope that his success in Japan would translate to the Los Angeles rotation. Hes done just fine so far, posting a 7-6 record with a 3.07 ERA.TREVOR STORY, ROCKIESStory was quite the phenomenon when he hit seven home runs in his first six big league games back in April. Needless to say, the Colorado shortstops pace has slowed a bit, but his batting line -- .263 with 21 homers and 57 RBI -- is still pretty remarkable for a 23-year-old. A note of caution: Hes also on pace for about 200 strikeouts.Story, Seager and St. Louis Aledmys Diaz have turned this into quite a season for rookie shortstops in the National League.SEUNG HWAN OH, CARDINALSThe 33-year-old South Korea native came to St. Louis with quite a reputation -- he led the Japanese Central League in saves in 2014 and `15 and had earned the nicknames Final Boss and Stone Buddha. Hes already appeared in 44 games for the Cardinals, posting a 1.62 ERA.JUNIOR GUERRA, BREWERSGuerra bounced all over the minors and even played professionally in Italy before finally making his big league debut for the Chicago White Sox at age 30 last year. He pitched only four innings for the White Sox in 2015, and Milwaukee claimed him off waivers in October.The right-hander has come out of nowhere to go 6-1 with a 2.93 ERA in 12 starts for the Brewers this year.NOMAR MAZARA, RANGERSA 21-year-old outfielder playing regularly for a first-place team, Mazara is hitting .283 with 11 home runs and 36 RBI. Mazara was 16 when the Rangers signed the Dominican prospect and gave him a $5 million bonus. Hes progressed quickly enough to help Texas withstand injuries to Shin-Soo Choo and Josh Hamilton this year.---Follow Noah Trister at Alexander Wennberg Jersey .ca! Hi Kerry, Heres an interesting one. I know its common knowledge that all players are responsible for their sticks. We witnessed that when Zack Kassian hit Edmontons Sam Gagner in the face after a missed check. Thomas Vanek Jersey . LOUIS -- Mike Smith is used to facing plenty of shots, so this was nothing new. . Scott Kazmir allowed four hits in seven shutout innings, Michael Brantley hit a two-run homer in a three-run first inning and the Indians maintained their hold on an AL wild-card spot with a 4-1 win over the Houston Astros on Saturday night. BEREA, Ohio -- Racing downfield after cruising past the cornerback, Terrelle Pryor dove forward and grasped the ball with his fingertips as he fell to the turf.Fans watching at training camp cheered the 50-yard reception, as Pryor got up from the ground and spiked the ball to the turf, before jogging back downfield and bumping chests with Browns quarterback Robert Griffin III.The excitement emanating from Pryor was evident, as it has been for entirety of his second training camp with the Browns.After a year spent struggling with the transition from passer to pass-catcher, hes finally starting to feel like a real wide receiver.To actually be out there battling with corners and being able to beat corners man to man and getting off press pretty easy now. ... Im very excited, Pryor said. This game is the love of my life.Pryor initially made the move from quarterback to receiver in training camp with Cleveland a year ago, but had a nagging hamstring strain that kept him out of all but one exhibition game.The Browns added Pryor to the 53-man roster out of camp, but cut him before the teams first regular-season game, only to bring him back for the final five games of the season.After the roller-coaster season, Pryor spent time this summer working on his skills as a wide receiver with former Vikings star Randy Moss and current Browns quarterback Josh McCown in Charlotte, N.C.Terrelle came down there and worked his tail off, McCown said. Hes turning over every rock to make sure he can find a way to get himself better and its a hats-off and a credit to him because he wants it.From what Pryor has shown thus far in camp, Browns coach Hue Jackson thinks the training has paid off.He made the transition from quarterback to receiver, Jackson said. Hes handled it very well. Im very proud of what hes doing.As head coach of the Raiders in 2011, Jackson drafted Pryor -- then a quarterback -- and the two maintained a good relationship as they met again with the Bengals.Now together for the third time in Cleveland, Pryor and Jackson are providing help to each other.In Pryor, Jackson has a player that understands his offense and can teach it to Clevelands group of receivers that includes first-round pick Corey Coleman and the recently reinstated Josh Gordon. Jack Johnson Jersey. Sometimes, hell just tell me, `Terrelle, shut up. Dont answer this, Pryor said of Jackson. Its because I know this stuff pretty good. Im excited just to get the guys sped up, or if the guys have any questions, Im here to help in any way.In Jackson, Pryor has a coach who believes in his talent and views him as a potentially big piece of the Browns offense this season.There are a lot of different things that well do with Terrelle because I think hes very talented, Jackson said. Well just continue to find different ways to have him make a difference on our offensive football team.One of the ways in which Jackson will use Pryor involves the receiver undergoing yet another transition, though this move isnt a switch in positions.Rather, Pryor is switching from one side of the field to the other, moving from the X receiver to the Z receiver, where hell be lined up often next to the tight end.The receiver isnt at all concerned about switching sides, so long as he can still be on the field.I just want to go and help however I can, be a playmaker, Pryor said. Put me on the field, Im going to make a play and thats got to be my mindset. Thats what I want to do. Thats my ultimate goal.Game notes Pro Bowl TE Gary Barnidge (sports hernia) was held out of practice as he recovers from surgery. . OT Joe Thomas and DE Paul Kruger were at practice, but did not participate as they were given a veterans day off. . The Browns held a nine-minute hitting period, but left the first and second-team players on the sidelines in an effort to get younger players involved. . Jackson said the team will host a scrimmage in Berea on Friday before playing an intrasquad mock game at Ohio Stadium in Columbus on Saturday.---Online: AP NFL website: and AP NFL Twitter feed: Cheap NFL Hoodies Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping Jerseys NFL China Wholesale NFL Autographed Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping ' ' '
