FLOWERY BRANCH Quinnen Williams Jersey , Ga. (AP) ¡ª No introductions were necessary for Chris Lindstrom and Kaleb McGary on the opening day of the Falcons¡® rookie minicamp.The first-round picks were good friends even before they lined up on the right side of the offensive line from the start of Friday¡¯s workout.They became friends on the same team at the Senior Bowl and again worked out together at the NFL combine. Then the Falcons selected Lindstrom and then McGary in the first round of the draft.¡°Going from the combine to here, that was crazy,¡± McGary said after the practice. ¡°From the Senior Bowl to the combine to here, that was wild. It was actually pretty cool, pretty organic, really.¡±General manager Thomas Dimitroff traded second- and third-round picks to select McGary late in the first round after using the No. 13 overall pick to draft Lindstrom.¡°It was really cool to build that relationship and then when he got drafted I was so happy I texted him right away,¡± Lindstrom said. ¡°It¡¯s been awesome together.¡±Lindstrom and McGary could open the 2019 season as the starters at right guard and right tackle, respectively. The two lined up together from the first snap on Friday.¡°We parked them right next to one another,¡± said coach Dan Quinn. ¡°They already have a good chemistry together but I was pleased with the first day.¡±Quinn took bold action in firing all three coordinators following a 7-9 finish in 2018. Similarly, he spared no feelings when he said after the season only two starters on the line ¡ª center Alex Mack and left tackle Jake Matthews ¡ª played well enough to keep their jobs.The Falcons¡¯ commitment to improving the line began by signing guards James Carpenter and Jamon Brown in free agency. Then Dimitroff and Quinn looked for more size in the draft.Lindstrom (6-4, 310) impressed the Falcons with his quickness.McGary (6-8 http://www.cowboyscheapauthenticstore.com/trysten-hill-jersey-ch eap , 324) is even bigger than Quinn expected. ¡°When you first see him, you say that¡¯s a big fill in the blank,¡± Quinn said with a smile.But it was more than McGary¡¯s size that convinced the Falcons to draft the former Washington tackle.¡°Then you see him come off the ball, those are things that get you excited about him because he¡¯s got quickness for a big man,¡± Quinn said. ¡°Not just top-heavy but legs and he¡¯s got power. So when he jumps off the ball, it was impressive today.¡±Last year¡¯s line failed to protect quarterback Matt Ryan , who was sacked 42 times, the second-highest total of his career. Even worse, Ryan was hit 113 times, the NFL¡¯s third-highest total.The practice was Quinn¡¯s first in his new role as defensive coordinator. He led Seattle¡¯s defense before he was hired as the Falcons coach in 2015.When asked as coach how his new defensive coordinator measured up, Quinn said ¡°I¡¯d say there¡¯s definitely work to be done Jachai Polite Jersey , but man did I have a blast.¡±NOTES: There were 62 players in camp, including the draft picks, undrafted free agents and players invited for tryouts. Former Georgia Tech quarterback TaQuon Marshall is with the team on a tryout at wide receiver. ¡°You like his makeup,¡± Quinn said. ¡°When you have a sense that you¡¯re going for it and you have something to prove, you get the best stuff.¡± ¡­ RB Marcus Green, a sixth-round pick from Louisiana Monroe, has a strained hamstring and watched from the sideline. Quinn said he wants to make sure Green is ready for the team¡¯s offseason program.
MILWAUKEE ¡ª Lorenzo Cain will be back in the lineup Tuesday when the Milwaukee Brewers open a two-game interleague set with Cain¡¯s former team, the Kansas City Royals, at Miller Park.

Cain sat out Sunday when the Brewers wrapped up a four-game series with the St. Louis Cardinals. It was a scheduled day off for the veteran center fielder, who ha played every game since May 23 but also a chance for him to rest a nagging groin injury and get two full days off his feet before facing his former team.

The 32-year-old has been everything the Milwaukee Brewers had hoped for when they signed him to a franchise-record $80 million contract during the winter.

Cain is among the team leaders in almost every offensive category this season: hits (71), walks (43) Chuma Edoga Jersey , on-base percentage (.394). He is second in doubles (15), batting average (.291) and .OPS (.832).

He also has been something of a workhorse, appearing in 72 games ¡ª just one fewer than team leader Travis Shaw ¡ª while making 70 starts. He leads the team with 312 plate appearances and 265 at-bats.

¡°Winning games is the most important part,¡± Cain said. ¡°It¡¯s still early in the season and we have a long way to go, but winning consistently, winning series, that¡¯s our main goal.¡±

Shaw should also be back in the lineup. He left Sunday¡¯s game when he tweaked an already-sore right wrist during a third-inning at-bat. He missed two games with the same injury earlier in the week against Pittsburgh but started all four games against St. Louis.

¡°This is something I¡¯ve been dealing with for a while now and a couple of swings here and there will get it every now and then,¡± Shaw said. ¡°It¡¯ll be nice to have almost two full days off with the rest of tonight, all of tomorrow and a night game (Tuesday). We¡¯ll see where we¡¯re at then.¡±

Having those two back and healthy, as well as red-hot slugger Jesus Aguilar, who got a break Sunday Trevon Wesco Jersey , will be a relief for rookie right-hander Freddy Peralta.

After making his first three big league starts on the road, Peralta will get a chance to show his talent to the hometown fans for the first time when he takes the mound for the series opener.

¡°I¡¯m very excited,¡± Peralta said. ¡°It¡¯s like a dream, pitching in Miller Park.¡±

His MLB career got off to a memorable start. He struck out 13 in 5 1/3 scoreless innings with his family on hand to watch at Coors Field.

He¡¯s 2-0 with a 2.30 ERA as a big leaguer with the Brewers, winning all three of his starts. Peralta has also struck out 84 batters in 59 innings for Triple-A Colorado Springs this season, going 6-1 with a 2.75 ERA there.

¡°I know that (major league hitters) are smart, but I just have to pitch the same and believe in myself, trust my ability in making pitches,¡± Peralta said. ¡°I know they¡¯re better hitters than in the minor leagues, and I just have to make the adjustments, but it¡¯s all the same for me.¡±

He¡¯ll go up against right-hander Jakub Junis Shareef Miller Jersey , who has lost his last five starts and hasn¡¯t won since May 18.

Junis has a 6.75 ERA during his losing streak with 24 strikeouts in 24 innings.

¡°It¡¯s been tough, not only personally, but as a team,¡± Junis told the Kansas City Star. ¡°We¡¯re grinding through it.

¡°It¡¯s definitely been a struggle for me. I¡¯ve given up a lot of home runs this year, so I¡¯m very conscious of that. I¡¯m trying to keep it in the ballpark, because when I do, that¡¯s when I have success.¡±

Kansas City has faced Milwaukee twice this season. They dropped both games of an interleague series in April at Kaufmann Stadium.
