CINCINNATI, Ohio -- Nobody in baseball likes to use injuries as an excuse, including Bryan Price. Nike Air Max 720 Günstig Kaufen . That being said (one of Prices favourite phrases), the first-year Cincinnati Reds manager almost cant wait until Saturday. That is when he plans to write pitcher Mat Latos name into the starting lineup, all but giving Price his first look at the team he hoped to be managing when he took the job last October. Latos and first baseman Joey Votto of Toronto completed rehab assignments with Triple-A Louisville on Monday. Votto, sidelined since May 16 with a quadriceps strain in his left knee, was activated from the 15-day disabled list before Tuesday nights game against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Latos, who hasnt pitched all year after having surgery on his right elbow last October and his left knee on Valentines Day, is tentatively scheduled to start Saturday in Milwaukee. "This is as close to being whole as weve been all year," Price said Tuesday. Votto was the 12th player placed on the disabled list by the Reds this season. Catcher Devin Mesoracos two trips meant those 12 players had made a total of 13 appearances on the DL. Last season, 11 Reds players made a total of 15 appearances. Votto was set to bat third Tuesday night. He hadnt played since going on the disabled list May 21, retroactive to May 16, with an injury to the same knee that required two operations in 2012. The Reds went 11-12 without the 2010 NL MVP, who was hitting .257 with six home runs and 12 RBIs in 39 games. Votto spent Sunday and Monday with Louisville, going 2 for 6 with two strikeouts and grounding into a double play in two games at Pawtucket. "I feel good," Votto said. "Im looking forward to playing. I hold myself to a high standard. I wouldnt come back unless I felt like I could play to that high standard, so Im not really concerned about what percentage people think Im at. Im going to come back and play well." Latos, who has won 14 games in each of the past two seasons -- his first two with the Reds -- made his fourth rehab start Monday and lasted 5 2-3 innings in a game shortened by rain. He then continued to throw in an indoor batting cage to get his pitch count up to 100, the goal Price wanted the right-hander to reach before pitching for the Reds. "I was ready five or six days ago," said Latos, who chafed at being forced to make a fourth rehab start. "The stuffs there. My velocity is there. Throwing sliders at 90 mph puts a lot of stress on your arm, so that should tell you something." First baseman Donald Lutz was optioned to Louisville to make room on the roster for Votto. Lutz hit .154 (2 for 13) in seven games after being recalled from Louisville on May 23. Nike Air Max 97 Günstig .com) - The Vancouver Canucks will try to win two straight games for the first time since mid-January on Monday night as they play host to the struggling New York Islanders. Air Max 270 Günstig . Last years runner-up, Sara Errani, also reached the last eight in straight sets. Flipkens converted all four of her break points against Meusburger, and the third-seeded Errani broke Karin Knapps serve five times to win their all-Italian match 6-4, 6-3.Marcus Mariota lost some ground last week with his bye; he may be entirely out of the Heisman Race after this week. After Mariota was pushed around by Stanford on Thursday, finishing 20/34 with 250 yards and two touchdowns in Oregons Title hope-crushing defeat, hes going to need a poor performance or two from the remaining frontrunners to have a shot at the most coveted individual trophy in college sports. The remaining frontrunners of course being Johnny Manziel and Jameis Winston. While there is some considerable Heisman momentum in Winstons corner through 11 weeks, TSN.ca is sticking with Manziel as the lead dog. Manziel put up another monster performance in accounting for at least five touchdowns for the 10th time in his relatively short college career. The defending Heisman winners stat line cant be touched by any of the other contenders with just four weeks left until conference championships. He has 39 combined scores on the year, eight short of his 47 from last year. What keeps Winston in the race is Texas A&Ms two losses on the season, Manziels three interceptions against Mississippi State this week, and of course, Oregons loss putting Florida State in pole position to ttake on Alabama in the BCS National Championship. Nike Air Max 720 Schweiz. Two days after the Ducks saw their National Title hopes fade, Winston and the now second-ranked Florida State cruised by Wake Forest with 159 yards, two touchdowns and one interception. The Seminoles have three bird matchups to round out the regular season with Syracuse, Idaho, and a now very mediocre-looking Florida squad on rivalry weekend; a great stretch for Winston to catch up to Manziel in the stat lines. Someone else to keep your eye on is Baylor QB Bryce Petty. Lache Seastrunk had his name known in this column earlier this year but his teammate has passed him in the Heisman race of late. The Bears have continued to impress me all season and while Petty is still a fringe candidate through 11 weeks, what makes him a player to watch is Baylors remaining schedule. The fifth-ranked Bears still have huge games against Oklahoma State and Texas to decide the Big 12. If Petty continues to look good and Baylor finishes the year undefeated, thats two potential statement games that could go a long way come Heisman voting time. To go from Robert Griffin to Bryce Petty, its a good time to be a Baylor Bears fan. ' ' '

FLORHAM PARK, N. NMD Outlet .J. -- The New York Jets re-signed veteran guard Willie Colon to a one-year deal Wednesday. The 30-year-old Colon will return after starting at right guard in all 16 games last season. He is recovering from a torn right biceps suffered in the season finale, but expects to be healthy in time for training camp in late-July if not minicamp in June. "My rehab is going really well, things are going really well, and all thumbs are up," Colon said during a conference call. "So Im being smart about it, taking my time, rebuilding it and getting ready for training camp." Joe Linta, Colons agent, confirmed the deal is for $2 million. "Willie loves the Jets," Linta said in an email to The Associated Press. "He wanted to stay with them." Colon helped block for the Jets running game, which finished second in the AFC with 2,158 yards during the regular season. Chris Ivory (833) and Bilal Powell (697) each set career highs in yards rushing. The Bronx, N.Y., native and former Hofstra University standout thanked the Jets on Twitter, saying hes glad to "be back home." Colon added that Atlanta and Minnesota showed initial interest when the NFLs free agency period began last week. "They kind of backed off the table," he said. "Everything else was sort of wish-wash, so to speak. There were rumours about other teams, but nothing was really solid on the table." The eight-year pro spent his first seven seasons with Pittsburgh and signed with the Jets as an unrestricted free agent last March. Joining Colon on the right side will be former Seattle Seahawks tackle Breno Giacomini, who signed with the Jets last week and will replace Austin Howard, who signed with Oakland.
