Franco is considered day-to-day from corse178's blog

Goalkeeper Hope Solo has decided to end her season with the Seattle Reign of the National Womens Soccer League. Cheap MLB Jerseys Authentic .The beleaguered goalkeeper, who was handed a six-month suspension and saw her contract with U.S. Soccer terminated last week, announced her departure from her professional club team in a statement Tuesday.U.S. Soccer suspended Solo following disparaging comments she made about Sweden during the Rio de Janeiro Olympics, calling her opponents a bunch of cowards for their defensive style of play during the quarterfinals. She wont be eligible for selection to the national team again until February.Before a match last weekend against the Portland Thorns, the Reign announced Solo was granted an indefinite personal leave. Haley Kopmeyer took over for Solo in goal and the Reign won 3-1.Coming to terms with the fact I was fired from the U.S. Womens National Team after 17 years of service has been devastating. After careful consideration, I have decided to end my season with the Seattle Reign, an organization I love playing for, Solo said Tuesday. Mentally, I am not there yet. After watching the teams win against Portland this weekend and seeing Haley Kopmeyer playing so well in goal, I truly believe this decision is whats best for me and for the Reign organization.Reign head coach and general manager Laura Harvey issued a statement saying that while the team was disappointed in Solos decision, it was understood and respected.Hope has always wanted what is best for our team -- she is a relentless trainer, a fierce competitor and demands from herself nothing less than excellence on the pitch, Harvey said.The three-time defending champion U.S. women were handed their earliest-ever exit from the Olympics earlier this month when Sweden advanced 4-3 on penalty kicks following a 1-1 draw on Aug. 12.Swedens coach, Pia Sundhage, who led the U.S. team to gold medals in Beijing and London, replied to Solos postgame cowards comment by stating: Its OK to be a coward if you win. Sweden went on to play in the gold-medal match against Germany.Solo had caused a stir in Brazil even before the comment about Sweden because of social media posts over the Zika virus, showing her wearing mosquito netting and armed with insect repellant. Brazilian fans booed her mercilessly and shouted Zika! every time she touched the ball.While talented in goal, controversy has shadowed the 35-year-old Solo throughout her career.She still faces a possible trial on misdemeanor domestic violence charges after a 2014 incident at her sisters home, when she was accused of being intoxicated and assaulting her sister and 17-year-old nephew. Solo said she was a victim in the altercation. Earlier this year, an appeals court in Washington state rejected Solos request to avoid trial.In early 2015 while Solo was at a team training camp in Southern California, her husband Jerramy Stevens was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence in a U.S. Soccer team van. Solo was with him at the time.The former Seattle Seahawks tight end later pleaded no contest and was sentenced to 30 days in jail and four years on probation. Solo was suspended by U.S. Soccer for 30 days.There were other incidents as well, including Twitter comments she made about former U.S. player Brandi Chastain during the London Games, and public criticism of coach Paul Ryan during the 2007 World Cup over his decision to start Briana Scurry in the semifinals, a match the Americans lost. Solo was sent home early from the tournament.U.S. Soccer indicated in its statement announcing her suspension Wednesday that it was a culmination of events.The controversies have tainted Solos legacy in the net.She became the first goalkeeper with 100 international shutouts last month when the United States defeated South Africa 1-0 at Soldier Field in Chicago. It also was her 150th career win.During the Rio Games she made her 200th appearance in goal for the United States, an international record.Solo won her second straight Golden Glove Award for the best goalkeeper at the Womens World Cup a year ago. Over the course of the tournament in Canada, she had five shutouts and allowed only three goals in seven games. The U.S. won the World Cup for its third title in soccers premier event. Danny Santana Jersey .

R.J. Umberger scored twice to lead the Blue Jackets to a franchise-record for consecutive wins with a 5-3 victory Tuesday night over the Los Angeles Kings. PITTSBURGH -- Aaron Nola was supposed to emerge as the Philadelphia Phillies ace this season.After a promising beginning, hes struggled of late, including on Saturday when he was tagged for six runs and six hits in four-plus innings while the Phillies lost to the Pittsburgh Pirates 7-4.When hes at his best, he has control of all his pitches, Phillies manager Pete Mackanin said. Hes lost his control and he needs to a find a way to get it back.Nola (5-9) impressed as a rookie last season, going 6-2 with a 3.59 ERA in 13 starts, and then went 5-4 with a 2.65 ERA in his first 12 starts this season.Its unraveled since. Nola took a step backward from his last start when he pitched six shutout innings against the Miami Marlins on the heels of giving up 30 combined runs in his previous five outings.The Pirates drove him from the game during a five-run rally in the fifth inning that included two-run singles by Gregory Polanco and David Freese.Polancos hit put the Pirates ahead 4-3 and chased Nola. Freeses hit off Severino Gonzalez pushed the lead to three runs, and Francisco Cervelli capped the inning with a sacrifice fly to help Pittsburgh win for the fourth time in six games.I didnt have control of my curveball from the start and I just kept falling behind in the count, felt like I was 1-0 on everybody, Nola said. I still thought I did OK until the fifth inning. I left a couple of balls up and over the plate and they made me pay with some big hits.The Pirates Tyler Glasnow exited his second major league start in the fourth. The rookie right-hander was recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis earlier in the day and allowed two runs (one earned) and four hits in three-plus innings. The 6-foot-8 22-year-old is one of the best pitching prospects in baseball.Manager Clint Hurdle said he had no sense at all of the severity of the injury, but Glasnow did not seem overly concerned.Its a long year and youre always going to have things come up, Glasnow said. It was kind of a progression, I guess, inning by inning got a little worse and they felt like it was time for me to come out.Glasnow also hit two batters, including catcher CCameron Rupp, who left the game in the third inning after being struck in the left ear flap of his helmet. Tom Glavine Jersey. Rupp did not display any concussion symptoms but will be re-examined Sunday as part of Major League Baseballs protocol for head injuries.Odubel Herrera had his second straight three-hit game for the Phillies after going 4 for 41 in his previous 11 games.It was getting pretty ugly for about a week there, so it feels good to get some hits, he said.Cesar Hernandez hit a pair of RBI singles and was one of four Phillies with two hits along with Andres Blanco, Tommy Joseph and Carlos Ruiz, who took over behind the plate for Rupp. Blanco and Joseph hit run-scoring singles.Cervelli went 2 for 3 and was the only Pirates player with multiple hits -- the Phillies outhit Pittsburgh 12-8. Starling Marte and Jordy Mercer also drove in runs.Juan Nicasio (8-6) allowed one run in two innings in relief of Glasnow. When Glasnow left, the score was tied 2-2 and the Phillies had runners on first and second with none out, but Nicasio escaped the jam unscathed.Mark Melancon closed with a scoreless inning for his 29th save.TRAINERS ROOMPhillies: 3B Maikel Franco (sore left wrist) sat out after being hit by a pitch in the first inning of Friday nights 4-0 win. Franco is considered day-to-day.Pirates: RHP Ryan Vogelsong (facial fractures) played catch before the game after leaving his rehab start Wednesday with Indianapolis after four innings because of a stiff neck.ROSTER MOVESIn addition to Glasnow, C Elias Diaz was recalled from Indianapolis while RHP AJ Schugel was optioned to the same club. C Eric Fryer was placed on the paternity list after his wife gave birth to twins -- a boy and a girl -- on Saturday.UP NEXTPhillies: RHP Vince Velasquez (8-2, 3.15 ERA) will start Sunday in the finale of the three-game series.
