old right-hander has 286 saves i escrito por lw789

PITTSBURGH, Pa. Derwin James Jersey . - Pittsburgh Steelers backup tight end Michael Palmer has as many touchdowns this season as veteran Heath Miller after his one-yard score helped the Steelers to a 17-9 win over Jacksonville last weekend.Yet Palmer just laughs when asked if theres a chance he can one day catch Millers career total, currently at 41 and counting.Nah, that was only my fourth, Palmer said. (And) I was the first read on that play. One yard to go and I caught it for a touchdown. . To catch a touchdown in the NFL, its always exciting, no matter how many you have. Ill bet Heath is just as excited for each one of his.Miller, arguably the best tight end in Steelers history, isnt shocked that the little-used Palmer is making the most of his limited snaps for the Steelers (3-2), who play at Cleveland (2-2) on Sunday.He played some ball in Atlanta (2010-12), so hes been around, Miller said. Its no surprise to anyone in this locker room that hes been playing so well. But he probably told you about Atlanta and his time with (Tony) Gonzalez.When it was confirmed that Palmer did indeed mention Gonzalez, the usually reserved Miller yelled across the locker room to backup tight end Matt Spaeth to tell him the news.If I have to answer any more questions about Palmers touchdown last week, hes going to owe me, Spaeth said.When told that Palmer also mentioned the two of them, Miller didnt appear to be too impressed.Oh, at least he did that, Miller said. Do you have it on tape? Did he at least say some good things about us?Palmer certainly paid his due respect to Miller and Spaeth, the Steelers top two tight ends. And thanks to solid blocking skills and special teams play, Palmer has earned more playing time alongside those two.Part of it is that Ive been here for more than a year now, and the coaches are more comfortable with me, Palmer said. And Im more comfortable in the system, so its just up to me to take advantage of it anytime they give me an opportunity. And when all three tight ends are in there, it gives our offence a lot of options.Ben Roethlisberger obviously has confidence in Palmer, because the Steelers quarterback tried to hit him for another touchdown Sept. 21 at Carolina. The Panthers defensive back had tight coverage and appeared to deflect the pass in the end zone before it glanced off Palmers hands.One area where Palmer also has not fallen short on the Steelers is his beard. Defensive end Brett Keisel sports the ultimate in facial hair. Palmer called Keisel his beard mentor.Thats not true, Keisel said. His is coming in pretty good. Its not as good as mine, but its getting there.Just like Palmers game.Notes: Despite practicing on a limited basis Thursday and Friday, LB Ryan Shazier (right knee) has been ruled out, along with CB Ike Taylor (right forearm) and S Shamarko Thomas (hamstring). . Keisel, Miller, FS Mike Mitchell and SS Troy Polamalu a€” who were given days off this past week a€” are ready to go.___AP NFL website: and Michael Schofield Jersey .com) - The Miami Heat will try to close out the Charlotte Bobcats Monday night in Game 4 of their Eastern Conference first round series. Adrian Phillips Jersey . Fielder ended 4-for-5 with a solo homer, while Avila was 4-for-4 with two runs scored for the Tigers, who put the brakes on a three-game skid and rebounded from a loss in Mondays opener. Victor Martinez and Austin Jackson both contributed two hits, an RBI and a run scored as Detroit maintained its healthy lead atop the AL Central. NEW YORK -- Mets closer Bobby Parnell was placed on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday with a partially torn elbow ligament and will be sidelined until at least late May. Parnell will be out much longer if it turns out he needs surgery. But first, he will try resting for two weeks before beginning a throwing program that could last up to a month, general manager Sandy Alderson said. If that doesnt heal Parnells right elbow sufficiently, he likely would require surgery. "Its conceivable, I guess, that we would cut that off earlier than four weeks if we thought he wasnt making progress," Alderson said. "Theres always the risk that it will completely tear. But because of the location, the doctors were comfortable with the conservative approach." The move was made retroactive to April 1. New York selected the contract of veteran right-hander Kyle Farnsworth from Triple-A Las Vegas and added him to a suspect bullpen that flopped on opening day. Alderson said some of the clubs starters at Las Vegas will pitch out of the bullpen over the next couple of months to get accustomed to that role. That probably will not include top prospect Noah Syndergaard. "We have some great arms and at some point it will be important for us to see them," Alderson said. In other moves, second baseman Daniel Murphy was placed on paternity leave and the Mets recalled infielder Wilmer Flores from Las Vegas. Flores started at second against Washington left-hander Gio Gonzalez. Chris Young, who missed the opener with what was described as a minor right quadriceps strain, made his first start for the Mets but never came to bat. Young played the fiirst inning in left field before he was lifted for Andrew Brown in the top of the second. Justin Jones Jersey. Three innings later, the Mets announced Young left the game with tightness in his right quad. Young joined the team as a free agent in the off-season, signing a $7.25 million, one-year contract. Murphy is expected back in time for Thursdays matinee. He and his wife, Victoria, welcomed a baby boy named Noah on Monday. To make room for Farnsworth on the 40-man roster, the Mets sent right-hander Ryan Reid outright to the minors. Parnell threw 25 pitches in the season opener Monday against the Nationals and blew a save, giving up Denard Spans tying double in the ninth. New York lost 9-7 in 10 innings. It was the right-handers first save opportunity since a neck injury that eventually required surgery sidelined him for the final two months last season. Parnell complained of tightness in his right elbow after the game. The Mets said he was examined Tuesday at the Hospital for Special Surgery, had an MRI and was diagnosed with a partial tear of the right medial collateral ligament. The team said he received a plasma injection. The Mets already are without All-Star ace Matt Harvey, expected to miss the entire season following Tommy John surgery Oct. 22 for a partial tear of his right ulnar collateral ligament. Jose Valverde, a three-time All-Star, takes over as the closer. The 36-year-old right-hander has 286 saves in an 11-year big league career with Arizona, Houston and Detroit. "I feel bad for Bobby. What I want is for Bobby to be OK," Valverde said. "I want this guy to come back soon. I want him closing games for the Mets."
