SEATTLE -- In a rare deal that involved up-and-coming prospects on both ends, the Seattle Mariners and New York Yankees made a 2012 trade that was supposed to set the foundation for both organizations. Solomon Thomas Youth Jersey . The pitching-rich Mariners sent All-Star rookie starter Michael Pineda to New York for Yankees top prospect Jesus Montero, a catcher with unlimited offensive potential.Four-and-a-half years later, that blockbuster deal looks more like a waiver-wire transaction. While Montero flamed out and is no longer in the Seattle organization, Pineda will return to Seattle as a struggling, back-of-the-rotation starter.Pineda (6-10, 4.89 ERA) has had a rough year but is pitching pretty well over his past few starts as he heads into his second appearance as a visiting pitcher at Safeco Field. Hes 1-0 with a 3.18 ERA this month and doesnt have the typical pressure of a New York pitcher in that the Yankees are out of the postseason conversation. New Yorks 2-0 loss at Los Angeles on Sunday left the Yankees at 63-60 and 6.5 games out of the American League East race.Since the Yankees waved a proverbial white flag by trading Carlos Beltran and their top two relievers, Pineda has started to find some success. He threw five scoreless innings in his last start, coming out of the game only because of a rain delay before watching the New York bullpen blow up in a 12-6 loss. Manager Joe Girardi said after that game that Pinedas history of shoulder problems were a factor in not sending him back out after the rain delay.We just felt its risky for him, Girardi said. And thats just not a risk we want to take. Hes important to us.Despite the disaster that Montero became as a Mariner -- he hit .247, never panned out as a catcher and once got into a physical altercation with a team scout during a minor league appearance -- Seattle hasnt exactly missed Pineda. The Mariners starting pitching has been a strength over the years, and only this season has the offense finally caught up.Seattle had another offensive outburst Sunday afternoon, piling up 10 hits on the way to a 6-3 lead going into the ninth inning, but the bullpen blew the lead in a 7-6 loss. Reliever Tom Wilhelmsen endured most of the damage, allowing two home runs and four runs total in just one-third of an inning.Weve been playing well, so its definitely disappointing, Wilhelmsen said. But we just have to come back (Monday) and kick some butt.The Mariners used five relievers during the Sunday loss, so they might be in a predicament for Mondays game. While closer Edwin Diaz is available -- he was held out of games both Saturday and Sunday to rest an arm that threw 61 pitches over his two appearances Wednesday and Friday nights -- Seattle might be limited if starter Cody Martin struggles.Martin (1-2, 3.14 ERA) is scheduled to make his second start after filling in for injured James Paxton last week. The reliever was supposed to make that one spot start before going back to the bullpen, but Paxton hasnt responded from a bruised elbow and landed on the disabled list. That pushed Martin back into another start, and Servais might have to get creative if Martin gets into early trouble.Weve been running those guys very, very hard, theres no doubt, Servais said of his bullpen. ... Thats just where were at in the season. Were 10 days away from some reinforcements when the rosters expand for the season.

"Jeff is a hard worker who was an important special-teams contributor for us last season," said Stamps GM John Hufnagel. http://www.thesf49ersshoponline.com/Solomon-Thomas-49ers-Jersey/ .B. - Sebastien Auger made 44 saves as the Saint John Sea Dogs edged the visiting Acadie-Bathurst Titan 2-1 on Saturday in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League action. The countdown has come to an end. Ive been training hard and everythings coming together at just the right time.Although theres always a bit of a niggle or something going on, Im feeling fit and ready.This year and probably last year as well, I was dealing with a bit of a back and wrist injury, both injuries have been the main issue for me the last few years. So Ive had to manage them well. But otherwise Ive just been training hard and focusing on managing my injuries.Mentally Im feeling pretty good. The past few years Ive been focused on all the details that go into training and competing, and getting good and consistent results. So this year Ive been focusing on areas like psychology and diet and different things outside of training, to make sure that when I perform at Rio all the physical work Ive done are complemented by all the extra things that Ive done outside the pool.Getting physically prepared pretty much comes down to doing lots of repetitions at training so Im as comfortable with the dive as possible, and I know regardless if I have a good or a bad take off Im able to save those dives.Ive got to make quick decisions in the air, which is why we train so many repetitions, and then the other side is also preparing mentally. Ive got a process that Ive been working on throughout the year leading up to this event, and its been a learning curve building up to this event with my psychologist.Ive had some good results this year; I won a bronze at the world cup event in Rio earlier this year and its good to have some good international results behind me. I can use what Ive learned from those events, and the experience Ive gained over the years - as well as the chaances to compete against a lot of the competitors Ill be competing against in Rio; its been a really good learning experience. Reuben Foster Womens Jersey. I had to back up a lot of competitions, one after the other; Ive been pretty proud of myself at being able to do that and to show consistently that Im in good form, and its also really good to have that confidence against these competitors.But even with the experience Ive got I usually get pretty nervous before I compete. Its usually the same regardless what level the competition is. It could be just a tiny competition at home or it could be the Olympics, I get just as nervous at every comp.But because Im used to that, Im used to dealing with the nerves and its something Ive been working really hard on this year; trying to deal with nerves and being well prepared mentally to try to get on top of the nerves in competitions.Leading into the Olympics, you always know the competition will be really tough; and its not just the Chinese. There are a lot of competitors whove worked really hard and you cant discount anyone else because anything can happen on the day. So I just try to focus on myself and my own performance.Im super excited ahead of the competition, and a little nervous. I just cant wait to get the green and gold on.It would be great to come away with a medal at the Olympics, but what Ive been working on in the last year is going in and showing my diving ability after all the hard work Ive been doing. If Im able to go in and dive well and be happy with my performance, Ill be happy with my results.
