The Chicago White Sox have placed outfielder Avisail Garcia on the 10-day disabled list because of a strained right hamstring.
Garcia was hurt Monday night while running out a grounder in the second inning of a 10-4 victory over Seattle. He attempted to pull up a few steps short of first base and then fell. He was assisted off the field and left the game.
White Sox manager Rick Renteria says the injury is considered “mild to moderate” and will be reassessed in a few days.
“Everybody’s been very down to earth. There’s a humility there. There’s a formula there for success, and I sit in the team meetings and I see the organization,” Cousins said.
“I see the attention to detail and I see the professionalism, and it’s just no surprise why there was success last year.”
Watkins appeared in 12 regular-season games for the Irish last season. He recorded 28 tackles, broke up eight passes and had one interception. He was not a starter for the Irish but could start at another school.
“You want to bring the safety down in the box and play an eight-man front, we have a quarterback that can recognize that and create some matchups on the outside that are one-on-one,” Gruden said. “This man has made a living going down the field, getting the football. It’s a great day for us. We have a lot to prove and we’re anxious to prove it.”
After sitting out in 2016, Bryant had 50 catches for 603 yards and three touchdowns last season. Bryant, 26, has one year left on his contract and said he learned from his suspension.
“Just a reality check and just seeing all the people who were there for me, who was really there and who wasn’t,” Bryant said. “I stayed close to my family, and I have a son that’s about to be born, so I just stayed focused on my family and just working out and taking care of myself and being the best Martavis Bryant I can be. I wasn’t able to play football, so I tried to stay away from it and just focus on my family and myself.
