The 33-year-old Sanchez had a career-worst 6.41 ERA in 2017 and even spent some time in the minor leagues.

Over the past three years, his cumulative ERA was 5.67. He allowed 85 home runs in 88 appearances over 415 2/3 innings. Last season, which he described as a roller coaster, he developed hamstring trouble. Then he got hit on the calf with a batted ball.

Through it all, he was the same guy every single day. That’s tough to ask for in this game, Tigers left-hander Matthew Boyd said. I was really, truly grateful for how he led me and how he helped me on and off the field.

Kenworthy struggled in the finals, and couldn’t put down a complete run in three attempts. Ligety struggled in both of his giant slalom runs and was quickly out of contention for the podium.

In the first of two runs, Nick Goepper and Gus Kenworthy of the United States struggled. Goepper had a score of 59.00 after the first run, while Kenworthy had a score of 35.00. The first run finished with Oystein Braaten of Norway in first after posting a score of 95.00. Evan McEachran had a score of 89.40 for second, while Andri Ragettli of Switzerland was in third with a score of 85.50.

Pujols said he shed 13 to 15 pounds, and he looks in noticeably better shape — though he won’t say how much he weighs. That’s between him and his trainers, he said. Unlike the previous two winters when he was limited because of foot surgeries, Pujols was able to work out this offseason.

It’s good to have a normal offseason where I don’t have to go to physical therapy. Just get yourself in a gym and get yourself ready for spring training, he said Friday. I’m in better shape for sure.

Putting aside Pollock’s penchant for visiting the disabled list, if the science comes to fruition, he stands to run a little more. In his favor is manager Torey Lovullo isn’t shy about giving the green light. Last season, the Snakes slithered to the seventh-most steals in the league. Pinging Pollock elsewhere while adding five steals drops him only about $1, equating to 10 draft spots. Of course, the injury risk matters, but Pollock could be a discounted source for speed.

Marte isn’t on the shallower mixed league radar, but he makes for an interesting point. The batting average on balls in play (BABIP) of hard-hit balls exceeds that of soft-hit balls. bears_034
