Giants call up Dereck Rodriguez, son of Hall of Famer Ivan Rodriguez

The Giants, in need of another pitcher for their series against the Rockies in Denver, have called up Dereck Rodriguez, who referenced the promotion Monday morning on his Instagram account: Just got the best call of my life!!!! It’s showtime !!!

I have a warrior instinct that was birthed with my child. I was like, OK, you’re fighting for a reason now. I was hungrier and more motivated because I had somebody to take care of. I would start visualizing the fight as me being Mama Bear and someone was trying to take my cub.

Being a mother, you have to be completely selfless, and being a fighter you have to be selfish. So when I’m training, I’m 100 percent focused on training, and when I’m at home and being a mom, I have to be 100 percent focused on being a mom, switching from that fierce primal warrior instinct to being maternal and loving and caring and understanding and open to her.

For a long time, I was embarrassed about my stretch marks. Now I embrace them, because for me it was like this nest that I created to grow this little human in my body, and I’m proud of that. They are like my battle wounds.

I’ve finally come to a place in my heart and my soul that has embraced my body and the things that it does for me — and the way that it makes me feel. I’m really at peace with who I am. That peace came after I had my daughter. I really gained an appreciation for the work that I put in to get my body where it needed to be.

A news conference with MLB commissioner Rob Manfred is scheduled for Thursday at TD Ameritrade Park, the host site for the CWS.

The Tigers-Royals game would be held on Thursday, June 13 and would be the third game of a three-game series between the teams, with the first two games being played in Kansas City, the source told ESPN.

The move would be similar to the regular-season games played in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, in conjunction with the Little League World Series.

Lamb, a late replacement for injured Los Angeles starter Tyler Skaggs, went 3 1/3 innings. Lamb gave up three runs, six hits and one walk in his first career start at home.

For the Blue Jays, they couldn’t remedy their road woes despite home runs from Randal Grichuk, Lourdes Gurriel and Kendrys Morales.

They got a couple big homers off Ax. I mean, he’s been dominating left-handers all year, and two leftys got him today. We hung around, but we just couldn’t get anything going late, Toronto manager John Gibbons said.
