JuJu Smith-Schuster Jersey .At 83-59, the Indians sit seven games ahead of the second-place Detroit Tigers with 20 games remaining in the regular season. Cleveland is chasing its first division title since 2007 and already has exceeded its win total from a year ago when the club finished in third place.Meanwhile, Chicago (68-74) knows a trip to the playoffs is almost certainly out of reach. The White Sox dropped two of three games during the weekend to the Kansas City Royals, including a 2-0 loss on Sunday that marked the teams 10th shutout loss of the season.The Indians will not make life any easier on the White Sox. Cleveland is 9-3 against Chicago this season and has outscored the White Sox by a margin of 65-42 during those games.We need to muster more than two hits if were going to win, said White Sox manager Robin Ventura, alluding to his teams hit total Sunday. (The Indians) are leading the division. We have our hands full.Cleveland will send right-hander Carlos Carrasco (11-7, 3.15 ERA) to the mound for the series opener. The 29-year-old from Venezuela has won four of his past five decisions thanks to tremendous command. Since Aug. 12, he has walked only three batters while striking out 52.The White Sox have presented problems for Carrasco since he reached the majors in 2009. He is 3-8 with a 5.44 ERA in 16 appearances (15 starts) against the Chicago during his career. In seven appearances at U.S. Cellular Field, he is 2/3 with a 6.12 ERA.Right-hander Miguel Gonzalez (3-6, 3.81 ERA) will make his 20th start of the season for the White Sox. The 32-year-old is coming off a strong outing Tuesday in which he pitched 6 2/3 scoreless innings against the Tigers to pick up the victory. The game marked his first appearance since Aug. 11 when he went on the disabled list because of a strained groin.Gonzalez has fared well against Cleveland in his career. He is 3-0 with a 3.04 ERA in four appearances, including three starts. He has not faced the Indians this season.Cleveland will have a couple of reinforcements for the three-game series. On Sunday, the team promoted left-handed relief pitcher Ryan Merritt and first baseman Jesus Aguilar from Triple-A Columbus. However, the club decided not to promote highly touted outfielders Yandy Diaz and Bradley Zimmer.We did talk about him a lot, Indians manager Terry Francona said to MLB.com when asked about Diaz. Not just adding him to the roster, but we talked about him a lot because the people that have seen him think hes got a chance to be a really good player.I just think, right now, there wasnt really a place for him to play. ... I think his future has a chance to be really bright, though. This is not an indication that people dont like him. T. J.

Jarryd Haynes former NFL team, the San Francisco 49ers, are among at least 16 clubs sending scouts to watch NRL stars Jason Taumalolo and Valentine Holmes work out in Los Angeles on the weekend.The New York Jets, Carolina Panthers, Philadelphia Eagles, Seattle Seahawks and Arizona Cardinals have also indicated they will attend Saturdays closed door session near the University of Southern California campus.At this point Ive heard from more than half the league, Jeff Foster, president of National Football Scouting that is organising the workout, told AAP on Wednesday.Haynes hot and cold season with the 49ers last year obviously did not dampen the teams interest in physically elite, but NFL raw rugby league players.The workout has been scheduled to allow NFL scouts to watch Taumalolo and Holmes and then travel to the nearby LA Coliseum, site of the 1932 and 1984 Summer Olympics, to watch one of US college footballs biggest games of the weekend, USC against Notre Dame.Foster said Taumalolo, 23, and Holmes, 21, will undergo NFL Combine style tests.Well weigh and measure them and put them through a series of timed events like the 40 yard dash, three cone drill, the shuttles, well broad jump and vertical jump, Foster said. Cameron Sutton Youth Jersey. From there well run them through some simple position specific drills.They are ball handlers first so well determine what positions in rugby translate to what positions in the NFL.Taumalolo is a 191cm tall, 113kg lock/second-row with the North Queensland Cowboys and Holmes is a 185cm, 87kg fullback/winger with the Cronulla Sharks.Foster said they will do some basic workouts at the wide receiver, running back and tight end offensive positions.Then from there we will also look at some really basic defensive positions, he said.Just based off size and the physical nature of them, we will likely look at safety and outside linebacker positions.The pair flew from London to LA immediately after playing against each other in the Australia-New Zealand Four Nations final.Taumalolo and Holmes are contracted to their NRL clubs until the end of the 2017 season so interested NFL teams may have to wait a year before they move to the US.
