BALTIMORE -- The Texas Rangers finally ran out of patience with left-hander Joe Saunders, who was designated for assignment Tuesday after going winless in eight starts. Troy Apke Redskins Jersey . Saunders gave up four homers and seven runs in five innings on Monday night in a 7-1 loss to the Orioles. That left him 0-5 with a 6.13 ERA. "I just dont think its worked out to his liking and we just wanted to try something new and different at this point," assistant general manager Thad Levine said. The Rangers have 10 days to trade, release, or outright Saunders to the minor leagues. But it appears likely his time with Texas is over. "It was something we discussed, and we felt like it was best we go in another direction," manager Ron Washington said. "We appreciate everything Joe done. He was a pro. Sometimes, things just doesnt work out." The Rangers (37-5) had lost 10 of 12 through Monday and were mired in fourth place in the AL West, 14 games behind division-leading Oakland. So instead of waiting to see if the 33-year-old Saunders could break his extended slump, Texas recalled 25-year-old Miles Mikolas from Triple-A Round Rock. Although Levine labeled Mikolas "a work in progress," he said and the right-hander will start Wednesday at Baltimore and become part of the starting rotation. Mikolas was 5-1 with a 3.22 ERA in 16 games, including six starts, for Round Rock. He entered the year with just 11 career starts at the minor league level, all in 2009, his first professional season. But Mikolas was 3-1 with a 3.58 ERA after joining the Express rotation on May 30. So the Rangers bid farewell to Saunders and welcomed Mikolas to the big leagues. "It just so happens we have a starting pitcher at Triple-A who our manager and Triple-A pitching coach are highly recommending we give a chance at the big league level," Levine said. "So I think those two paths cross and we decided to make this move at this point." Saunders signed with Texas on March 5 and was given a job in the starting rotation on March 25, but he went on the 15-day disabled list after one start and did not return until May 28. He never got in a groove after that. Including Mondays outing in Baltimore, Saunders yielded 20 runs in 15 2-3 innings over his last three starts. "They have been miserable," he acknowledged. "Its tough man." Saunders owns an 89-86 lifetime record and made the AL All-Star team in 2008. He broke into the majors with the Los Angeles Angels in 2005 and also pitched for Arizona, Baltimore and Seattle before latching on with the Rangers. "He tried out with us in spring training this year, and he had strong beliefs that he could help us win major league games," Levine said. "I think what he ended up doing is he came in and gave us some very valuable innings. He also has been a consummate professional since hes been here." Derrius Guice Redskins Jersey . According to Tony Barrett of The Times, the Liverpool captain is set to announce that he will leave the club at the end of the 2014-15 season. Alex Smith Jersey . Coming off a 6-0 drubbing at Chelsea on Saturday, Arsenal endured another demoralizing result after rallying for a 2-1 lead -- only to concede a fluke equalizer. http://www.cheapredskinslockroom.com/AUTHENTIC-PERNELL-MCPHEE-REDSKINS-JERSEY/ . Now he has a complete game. Scherzer tossed a three-hitter in his 179th career start for his first complete game and Victor Martinez hit his 16th homer to lead the Detroit Tigers a 4-0 win over the Chicago White Sox.KANSAS CITY, Mo. - At various times over the past few years, the Kansas City Chiefs have tried to find a bit of thunder to pair with their lightning. Each time, all they really found was a whisper.Thomas Jones, on the downside of his career. Peyton Hillis, a shell of his former self.Rather than provide a complement to speedster Jamaal Charles, they merely offered unproductive carries. But at long last, the Chiefs appear to have finally found their bruising back in the form of Knile Davis, someone who can take the pressure of their All-Pro in a meaningful way.Theyre both explosive players, Chiefs coach Andy Reid said. They are completely different players, but they are both explosive players. And that makes my job easy, just give them the ball.Just like he did Monday night at Arrowhead Stadium.After missing most of the previous two games with an ankle injury, Charles returned to the starting lineup against New England. He ran for 92 yards and a touchdown, and also caught a pair of touchdown passes, leading the suddenly resurgent Chiefs to a 41-14 rout.But the return of Charles didnt signal the end of Davis, who had filled in admirably in his absence. He ran for 107 yards on 16 carries, his second straight game eclipsing the century mark.Coach Reid is a great offensive mind. He knows how to put us in the best situation to help our team win, said Charles, who has gone through several coaches during his time in Kansas City.Knile is starting to believe in himself and is starting to get comfortable, Charles added. Im happy for him that hes really finding his way in this game.Charles has been finding his way for quite a while.The former sprinter has 5,938 yards rushing to rank third in team history, and needs just 77 yards to pass Larry Johnson for second place. He needs 132 yards to surpass Priest Holmes for tops in the record book, a mark that wouldnt be out of the question on Sunday in San Francisco.The way Charles has doone it boils down to speed and shiftiness. Paul Richardson Redskins Jersey. He was an elite track athlete at Texas, and once harboured dreams of sprinting in the Olympics. But its just not straight-line speed that makes him effective; he also has an uncanny ability to stop and start, and his jukes and spin moves on some hapless defender have resulted in countless highlights.Davis, who was a standout at Arkansas, has the physical frame to simply run defenders over.He also has elite speed, of course, and wins most races to the end zone. But at 5-foot-10, 227 pounds, Davis is a load to handle when he lowers his shoulder pads, and his tree-trunk thighs make it difficult to tackle him low. He has plenty of his own highlights, racking up John Madden affectionately called YAC a€” yards after contact.I think it gives defences different looks, Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith said. I think it keeps both those guys fresh, for sure. We ask a lot of Jamaal, you know, so its nice to be able to rest him at time. I think Kniles play has deserved it, has warranted that.That started late last season, when Charles and the rest of the Chiefs starters sat in their meaningless regular-season finale. It continued in the playoffs, when Charles was sidelined early on by a concussion. Davis ran hard before leaving the loss to Indianapolis with a knee injury.Now, both of them are healthy and running at full speed.You keep throwing fast balls at the defence, Reis said. You to have two fresh backs in the fourth quarter, and again, they do different things. You can do different things with them.When theyre both humming? Its a nightmare for the defence.They beat us like we stole something, Patriots defensive tackle Vince Wilfork said, referring to the two running backs but the rest of the Chiefs well-oiled offence. We knew it was going to be a tough game. They basically destroyed us.___Online:AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP_NFL Cheap Diamondbacks Jerseys Cheap Braves Jerseys Cheap Orioles Jerseys Cheap Red Sox Jerseys Cheap Cubs Jerseys Cheap White Sox Jerseys Cheap Reds Jerseys Cheap Indians Jerseys Cheap Rockies Jerseys Cheap Tigers Jerseys Cheap Astros Jerseys Cheap Royals Jerseys Cheap Angels Jerseys Cheap Dodgers Jerseys Cheap Marlins Jerseys ' ' '
