first_imgSource: VRA -30- Tasha Wallis, Executive Director of the Vermont Retail Association (VRA), announced today the second annual VRA Retailer of the Year Award.(ROYs). “The overwhelmingly positive response to last year’s ROYs made it clear that Vermont’s retail industry believed in the value of recognizing outstanding excellence among its members,” said Wallis. “In addition, retailers employ more Vermonters than any other business sector except health care, with more than 40,000 working in retail–16% of the entire work force.

LA Dodgers’ Alex Wood gets good news, will begin throwing next week

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error “My batting practice days are over,” he said.Urias’ clock tickingJulio Urias has only thrown 58 combined innings this year between the majors and Triple-A, but the Dodgers are already planning to curtail his usage after his next two starts. Urias is scheduled to start Friday against the Milwaukee Brewers and next Wednesday against the Washington Nationals. And then? “We’ll go from there,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. The Dodgers also count a pitcher’s spring training stats toward his innings limit, so his actual total is somewhere in the 60s. The team hasn’t publicly stated what his innings limit for the season is, but it’s believed to be no less than 100 innings. Not including spring training games, Urias pitched 80 innings across four levels in 2015. As for how to limit his innings, the Dodgers have some options to choose from, most of which would appear involve Urias going back to the minor leagues for a time. Roberts ruled out the possibility of Urias remaining in the majors as a reliever for now.Frankie Montas, Brandon McCarthy and Hyun-Jin Ryu are all candidates to replace Urias in the rotation.Dodgers sign Lux, other picksThe Dodgers agreed to terms with first-round draft pick Gavin Lux, a shortstop from Indian Trail Academy in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Lux receives a $2.317 million signing bonus, slightly above the $2.316 million value MLB assigned to the 20th overall pick. The Dodgers have a total bonus pool of $9,336,500 to spend from.Of their first seven picks, only Louisville catcher Will Smith (32nd overall) and Vanderbilt pitcher Jordan Sheffield (36th) are believed to be unsigned. The team has officially announced eight signings: Errol Robinson (sixth round), Andre Scrubb (eighth), Dean Kremer (14th), Darien Tubbs (16th), Brock Carpenter (20th), Jeff Paschke (22nd), Brandon Montgomery (26th) and Stevie Berman (31st)..Dodgers catcher A.J. Ellis, who lives in Wisconsin in the offseason, said he took batting practice with Lux twice. “I remember seeing him as a freshman at the hitting facility,” Ellis said. “I was told he was one of the top freshmen in the country. The size wasn’t there, but the mechanics were. If he can grow into his body, the motions are already there.”AlsoKenta Maeda remains on track to make his next scheduled start Sunday against the Brewers. Maeda was knocked out of his last start after he took a line drive off his right leg. … McCarthy pitched three innings for Single-A Rancho Cucamonga in his second rehab start. He allowed four hits, including a home run, walked no batters and struck out four. His fastball sat 89 mph according to the San Jose Giants’ broadcast. … Yasiel Puig played seven innings for Rancho Cucamonga. He’s expected to play another seven tomorrow and rejoin the Dodgers in four days. … Roberts was once teammates with pitcher Eric Gagne, who has been keeping the franchise record for saves (161) warm for Kenley Jansen since 2006. Jansen tied Gagne’s record Wednesday. The difference between the two? “Gagne was more intense,” Roberts said. In a bad season for Dodgers medical updates, June has been a bad month.But one bit of good news emerged Thursday: pitcher Alex Wood, who was originally told not to throw for four weeks because of inflammation in his left elbow, will begin a throwing program next week, a few days earlier than planned.“We’re on pace to hit all my marks,” he said.Wood said he had some fluid drained from the elbow and received a cortisone shot. Since then, his inflammation subsided enough that the Dodgers’ training staff cleared him to begin throwing about 31/2 weeks after his last game, May 30 in Chicago.center_img Wood said his throwing program ought to last three weeks “at the most” before he’s cleared to pitch in a game. Barring any setbacks, Wood could be back on a mound in a game in mid-July.“It was bad news in terms of the time frame, but it was just inflammation,” Wood said. “There was nothing structurally wrong. Everything looked great — flexor, triceps, UCL — in the MRI.”Wood is 1-4 with a 3.99 earned-run average in 10 starts this season.The left-hander believes he suffered the initial injury swinging a bat May 15 against St. Louis. It affected his throwing each of his next two starts.If any pitchers get invited to this year’s Home Run Derby, count Wood out.last_img read more
