La Liga: Felix double sends Atletico to top four

first_img Costa’s claims for a penalty where ignored despite the former Chelsea striker complaining he had been held back in attempting to reach Lodi’s effort. Felix opened the scoring 20 minutes later after Lodi found space again down the left flank. Lodi played the ball back to Saul Niguez in the box, his shot was deflected to Felix’s path who smashed the ball to the top corner. The hosts’ best chance of an equaliser came six minutes before the break but David Garcia’s long-range shot could only hit the advertising boards. Felix doubled his account 10 minutes into the second half. Costa was fed the ball in the area and he squared it to Felix who side-footed home with ease for his eighth goal of the campaign in all competitions. Felix was substituted on the 69-minute mark as Simeone sent on holding midfielder Thomas Partey, who has been linked with a move to Arsenal. Despite Felix leaving the field his side made sure of three points as Marcos Llorente, Alvaro Morata and Yannick Carrasco scored in the final 11 minutes.

Joao Felix took his goal tally to eight for the season with the double at Osasuna Felix, 20, was making his first appearance since the Spanish top-flight returned from its coronavirus hiatus having been suspended for the weekend’s draw at Athletic Bilbao and had been suffering from an ankle sprain since May. “I felt good, coming back from injury after three months without playing and scoring two goals is very good for me,” Felix told broadcaster Movistar. The northerners remain in 11th after the defeat with an outside chance of making the Europa League but are also 10 points away from the relegation zone. The hosts’ coach Jagoba Arrasate was without captain Oier and Adrian Lopez who scored the equaliser at high-flying Real Sociedad, who can go back above Atltetico on Thursday with a win at Alaves. The visitors’ coach Diego Simeone made four changes from Sunday’s match in Bilbao including handing Felix, who joined the side from Benfica for 126 million euros ($141 million) last summer, a start alongside Diego Costa in attack. Felix will return to the Portugese capital in August as UEFA announced the Champions League will be completed in Lisbon with a ‘final eight’ format after Atleti knocked holders Liverpool out of the competition in March. Left-back Renan Lodi had the best of the early chances as his whipped effort in the eighth minute was straight at goalkeeper Ruben Martinez.last_img read more

2019 Angels spring training preview: catchers

first_img Angels’ Shohei Ohtani spending downtime working in outfield Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error MOVE THEY COULD MAKEWith the Philadelphia Phillies landing Realmuto, perhaps they would be willing to part with Andrew Knapp. Knapp is a 27-year-old switch hitter with a career .330 on-base percentage in 140 big league games. He’s got a .349 on-base percentage in the minors. Knapp also has options. Although Knapp doesn’t quite fit the Angels’ desire to have defensive-minded catchers, a switch-hitting catcher who gets on base and has options would be a nice depth piece. Having Knapp, Smith, Briceño and Garneau would give the Angels plenty of competition for the job backing up Lucroy, and coverage if he gets hurt.Related Articles As the Angels head toward the first workout of spring training on Wednesday, we are providing breakdowns of how they stand with their roster by position groups. Players acquired this winter include the method of their acquisition in parentheses. Today is the final installment, looking at the catchers. Previously, the rotation, bullpen, infield and outfield.2018 RECAPMartín Maldonado returned as the Angels’ primary catcher after winning a Gold Glove in his first major league season as a starter. Maldonado’s offense deteriorated in 2017, likely because of the wear of catching the most games in the majors, and in 2018 the Angels hoped to lessen his workload and maintain his offense. It didn’t really work out. Maldonado caught 79 of 103 games before he was traded, hitting .223 with a .616 OPS. After he was dealt to the Houston Astros, the Angels split the job between rookies Francisco Arcia and José Briceño. Although they combined for some nice moments, they didn’t produce much offensively either. Overall, the Angels ranked 24th in the majors in OPS from behind the plate. Defense, however, is what the Angels value most in their catchers, and in that regard, they did well.HOW IT LOOKS RIGHT NOWGeneral Manager Billy Eppler said from the start of the winter that they were looking for a catcher. They made an early inquiry into the Miami Marlins’ J.T. Realmuto, but the cost was too high for the Angels and he was traded to Philadelphia on Thursday. They also engaged with the top two free agent catchers, Yasmani Grandal and Wilson Ramos, but both eventually signed elsewhere. The Angels instead grabbed Jonathan Lucroy (free agent) on a one-year deal. Lucroy, 32, is a few years removed from being one of the game’s best catchers. Last season with the Oakland A’s, he hit .241 with a .617 OPS. Lucroy said he discovered some swing issues over the winter, and he has expressed confidence that he can correct them. He still helped nurture a young Oakland pitching staff into the playoffs in 2018. The Angels also picked up Kevan Smith (waivers) from the Chicago White Sox, and he and Briceño will battle for the backup job. Smith, who is out of options, appealed to the Angels because of his .348 on-base percentage last year. Arcia was designated for assignment and signed with the Chicago Cubs.THE NEXT LAYERThis could be an issue for the Angels. They don’t have a catcher among their top 30 prospects, according to MLB Pipeline. The best is Jack Kruger, who had a .770 OPS at Class-A and Double-A last year. The Angels will also have Dustin Garneau (minor league free agent) in big league camp. Garneau has played 88 games in the big leagues, with the Colorado Rockies, A’s and White Sox.
