Rams’ backups on defense certainly struggled to keep up wit

It’s the ninth major league team for Jesse Chavez Russell Wilson Jersey , so he’s not too worried about fitting in with the Chicago Cubs.

Chavez was added to Chicago’s roster as part of a flurry of moves before Saturday’s day-night doubleheader against the St. Louis Cardinals. The veteran right-hander was acquired in a trade with Texas on Thursday for minor league pitcher Tyler Thomas.

”I’ve played with a couple guys in here,” Chavez said. ”Obviously, throughout the years you get to play each other and develop that on-field relationship a little bit. But now it’s going to different, you know, developing that inside-clubhouse one.”

Chavez made his Chicago debut in the eighth inning in Game 1 and pitched two perfect innings in the Cubs’ 7-2 victory.

”What he did out there, that’s an experienced major league relief pitcher,” manager Joe Maddon said. ”He had a lead to work with. He wasn’t going to mess around. He’s not going to try to nitpick. I’m going to make you put the ball in play on the ground and my defense is going to make the plays. He was outstanding.”

The 34-year-old Chavez went 3-1 with a 3.51 ERA in 30 appearances with the Rangers. He made his major league debut with Pittsburgh in 2008. He also has played for Atlanta, Kansas City, Toronto, Oakland and the Los Angeles Dodgers and Angels.

Chavez has mostly pitched out of the bullpen, but he also has 70 career starts Matt Judon Jersey , including 21 last year with the Angels. He is known for his versatility and durability, two traits that could come in handy for the NL Central-leading Cubs with their starters struggling to go deep into games.

”Long man, middle man, whatever the case may be,” Chavez said. ”If a guy needs a breather, give him a breather. Just here to help out honestly.”

The Cubs also placed right-hander Anthony Bass on the 10-day disabled list and optioned right-hander James Norwood to Triple-A Iowa. Relievers Dillon Maples and Luke Farrell were brought up from Iowa, with Farrell serving as the 26th man for the doubleheader.

Bass has a strain on the right side of his back. He was just activated from the DL on Thursday after being sidelined by an illness.

”It got all tightened up,” Maddon said. ”With everything going on, we know it’s going to take several days. It was just better to just back him off, give him the full 10, and then evaluate at that point.”



Jay Cohen can be reached at — Los Angeles Rams coach Sean McVay turned up the volume on his first-unit offense Howie Long Jersey , blasting the usual training camp soundtrack of rap music even louder as they went through a series of unscripted situational drills Saturday.

It wasn’t enough to silence the starters, as wide receiver Brandin Cooks made a loud statement with a series of impressive catches.

“He did a great job today and he’s done that over the course of his career,” McVay said. “Brandin is an exciting player. I’ve really been impressed with how quickly he has been able to learn the system, take ownership on the offense, and just getting out here making plays.”

Those highlights included catching a crossing route through traffic and making a contested leaping grab on the next play during a team period, showing why the Rams traded for him in April and signed the former Oregon State standout to a five-year extension last month.

With a new contract in hand, Cooks feels free to go all out entering his fifth season.

“I think a lot of guys when you get that (extension), you go even harder just because you know have that security so you just lay it all out there because of the team believing so highly in you,” said Cooks, who had 65 receptions for 1,082 yards and seven touchdowns for New England last season.

Cooks has had at least 1 Len Dawson Jersey ,000 yards receiving and seven touchdown receptions in each of the last three seasons, and early returns in practice have justified McVay’s belief that Cooks will be more than a deep threat complimenting fellow starters Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp. However, Kupp believes that one aspect of Cooks’ skill set will have a major impact on how opposing defenses play against the Rams.

“The most visible sign of someone that’s fast is when they catch the deep ball, but you don’t see how much that influences things underneath and clears zones out and allows for guys to get open,” Kupp said. “For the threat that he is, the way safeties are going to have to play him, it’s a huge advantage for us. We just have to make sure we’re doing our job, the other 10 guys on the field.”

McVay likes how Cooks fits in with the other receivers on the roster, a group that was overhauled through free agency, the draft and trades last year before sending first and sixth-round picks to the Patriots for Cooks. What stands out to Kupp is how each receiver is capable of filling every role in McVay’s system, praising Cooks for integrating into the offense so quickly.

“Our receiving corps Rhett Ellison Jersey , just the guys that we have, there is so much diversity in terms of the strengths of our players that I don’t think it’s on one person,” Kupp said. “It’s not one person’s job to run this route. It’s not only one person that can run the deep route. And because of that, it makes it really easy for us to be able to move around and be diverse in our looks and even harder for the defense to get a bead on.”?

The Rams’ backups on defense certainly struggled to keep up with quarterback Jared Goff and his collection of receivers. Kupp was especially pleased with how the offense performed in the red zone during practice. Despite leading the NFL in scoring at 29.9 points per game last season, the Rams got touchdowns on 53.4 percent of possessions inside the 20-yard line.

Cooks showed he can help there by tapping his toes down in the back corner of the end zone for a touchdown during a red-zone drill.

“He can do a variety of things, but it’s exciting to be able to work with players like him where you’re kind of not really limited in any way you can utilize him,” McVay said.

NOTES: Tight end Gerald Everett will not travel with the team next week for joint practices with Baltimore because of a sprained shoulder, McVay said. . Safety Lamarcus Joyner, who has been limited because of a sore Achilles, should return to practice Monday.
