Edwin Jackson is making the most of his opportunity with yet another new team.
The 34-year-old journeyman earned his first win with Oakland, pitching neatly into the seventh inning as the Athletics beat the Cleveland Indians 7-2 Saturday for their season-high sixth straight victory.
That’s saying a lot. Barkley was named a consensus All-American his junior season at Penn State. He was considered a near-flawless prospect whom Giants general manager Dave Gettleman has described as a special young man. Barkley has even received rave reviews from teammates early in his Giants career.
He seems to be doing just fine off the field as well as being a new father and thoughtful son. Getting the house for his parents out of the way without touching a paycheck from the Giants was a meaningful gesture.
Obviously it’s special, Barkley said. I just hope I can set an example for future athletes and other athletes that, planning on doing something like that, I was able to do that without signing my contract, he said. That just shows that so far I’ve been making a lot of right decisions and surrounding myself with a great team. They have been able to help me a lot. I have to give a lot of credit.Reds look to remain hot vs. White Sox
Oklahoma City is expected to lose Paul George — possibly to the Lakers — leaving Anthony with Russell Westbrook and Steven Adams.
If the Thunder feel George’s absence leaves them short on talent in the tough Western Conference, they could try to trade Anthony. But moving the former No. 3 overall pick could prove challenging after he averaged just 16.2 points (a career-low) while shooting 40 percent from the field last season.
The Thunder acquired Anthony from the Knicks in September 2017, and it appears the two could remain together next season.
