Angels’ Zack Cozart might need a new swing because of his repaired shoulder

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Angels’ Shohei Ohtani spending downtime working in outfield “I don’t know how I’d go about that, but it’s a possibility for sure,” he said. “If I get the pain to go away and can’t get the full motion that I need to get, there has to be an adjustment mechanically.”In the second year of a three-year, $39-million contract, Cozart has hit .190 with the Angels. This season he’s hitting .124 with no homers and only two doubles.He said he previously hadn’t thought his shoulder was an issue because he didn’t feel any pain, until recently. He has felt tightness throughout, which he said has limited his mobility.Last June Cozart hurt his shoulder when he hit the ground on a dive. The joint had been loose for years, Cozart said, and the surgery to repair the labrum tightened it up.“My issue is the surgery worked,” Cozart said. “My shoulder is super tight. … Dr. (Neal) ElAttrache told me my shoulder wouldn’t feel the same for a long time. It might be 18 months or two years. When he told me that, I was thinking mainly about a pain thing, but looking back I think it’s more of a mobility thing. I don’t have as much flexibility because of the surgery, so that’s something we have to work on.” PITCHER BINGEThe Angels took pitchers with all eight of their selections on the second day of the draft, which went through the 10th round on Tuesday.Third-round pick Jack Kochanowicz, a high school left-hander from Pennsylvania, is expected to warrant bonus above the slot value of $637,000 to buy him out of a commitment to Virginia.Erik Rivera, the fourth-round pick, was selected as a two-way player out of the Puerto Rico Baseball Academy. He’s a left-handed pitcher and outfielder.Their next six picks were college pitchers, including 10th-rounder Chad Sykes of North Carolina-Greensboro. Sykes led Division I with an 0.93 ERA. Skykes, however, is a fifth-year senior with no leverage, so the Angels are likely to sign him for well below the slot value of that pick, which will give them extra money to give to other selections.The draft concludes with 30 more rounds on Wednesday.ALSOJustin Upton ran the bases, did some fielding drills and took batting practice on Tuesday. Manager Brad Ausmus said Upton is likely to be ready to face some live pitching sometime on this homestand, and then he’ll need a rehab assignment. …Matt Harvey, who is on the injured list with a back issue, said he’s thrown two bullpen sessions and he is now healthy. Ausmus said Harvey will need a rehab assignment, but they aren’t sure when that will be. …Related Articles Jose Suarez’s rocky start sinks Angels in loss to Astros ANAHEIM — Zack Cozart’s trip to the injured list may also send him back to the drawing board.Cozart said Tuesday that since having shoulder surgery last year he’s lost mobility in the joint, which has changed his swing.“From a mechanical standpoint, I’m not the same as I was last year,” Cozart said Tuesday, his first time talking to the media since he was placed on the IL with shoulder inflammation a week earlier. “I haven’t gone this long without having some sort of power. I don’t have anything behind (my swing) at this moment.”Cozart said he’s talked to the Angels hitting coaches about reworking his entire swing.center_img Angels’ poor pitching spoils an Albert Pujols milestone Angels’ Mike Trout working on his defense, thanks to Twitter Kevan Smith, who is on the concussion list, was set for a full workout, including catching and hitting, on Tuesday.

Pretrial Blansett hearing held this morning; jury selection process starts Tuesday

first_imgby Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — District Court officials are expecting around 100 candidates in the jury selection process of the Lindsey Nicole Blansett murder trial at the Sumner County Courthouse Tuesday morning.Of those 100 potential jurors, at least 42 of them will be selected for an interview, said Kerwin Spencer, Sumner County attorney. Then the judge, defense attorney and prosecuting attorney are expected to decide who will be the 12 jurors and two alternates, who will be seated to determine the fate of Blansett, 33, 0f Wellington who has been charged with premeditated murder. She is accused of killing her 10-year-old son Caleb at her home on Dec. 14, 2015.At the courthouse Monday, both Spencer and Blansett defense attorney Michael Brown met with Judge Scott McQuin during a pretrial hearing to go over the logistics of the trial which is expected to last into next week.Blansett was in attendance at the hearing Monday in her orange prison uniform and remained silent throughout the discussion.Brown said the jury selection could last two days through Tuesday and Wednesday. Spencer said he disagrees with Brown and expects the jury process could be wrapped up by tomorrow.“I could be asking for my first witness by 4 p.m. on Tuesday,” Spencer said.Spencer said the case will probably go into Monday of next week, and maybe into Tuesday or Wednesday.Security will be tight for the trial in which Blansett faces two felonies of premeditated murder and aggravated assault after being accused of using a rock and knife multiple times to fatally wound her son, Caleb, a Wellington Lincoln Elementary student while he was allegedly sleeping late in the evening last December.Those who come to the courthouse must adhere to various security measures including passing through a metal detecting device. Security officials at the courthouse are expecting a large number of media that could take up two rows on the bench.The hearing lasted two hours this morning and much of it surrounded logistics, including how to handle the media and jurors, what items can or cannot be allowed in the courtroom, and the scheduling of key witnesses. There was also discussion how many jurors will be interviewed. Some have already been deemed ineligible to serve, estimated at 30 percent of the pretrial questionnaires that were returned to the courthouse.Upon Brown’s request and agreed upon by the judge and prosecuting attorney, the two alternates for the 12-person jury will be considered “blind” meaning they will not know they are alternates through the proceeding.“That way they may pay attention more, thinking they are part of the 12-person jury,” Brown said.Follow us on Twitter.last_img read more
