WASHINGTON -- The Colorado Rockies called up Stephen Cardullo from Triple-A Albuquerque on Friday, the first time the 28-year-old infielder-outfielder has been on an active major league roster. Nike Air Vapormax Kopen .Hours after his promotion, Cardullo was batting second and playing first base against the Washington Nationals.Cardullo hit .308 with 17 home runs and 72 RBI in 115 games for the Isotopes this season. Prior to that, he spent four years in independent ball and was the MVP of the Canadian-American Association in 2015.Anyone playing baseball, whether its independent ball or still in the minors, you have that dream, Cardullo said.Cardullo played in 2012 in the Frontier League for the Canadian-based London Rippers, a team that folded midseason.You have that hope inside your heart that you can make it to the major leagues. I think thats what everyone feels. I was just lucky enough to be given the opportunity and Im very fortunate.Cardullo played collegiately as a walk-on at Florida State University. He was selected by Arizona in the 24th round of the 2010 draft and released after two seasons of rookie ball.Its a great story of perseverance, and overcoming the odds, Rockies manager Walt Weiss said.Hes earned it. I told him when he came into my office that nothing is ever given to you, that you have to earn everything to get here and hes done that and then some. Hes gone above and beyond in that department.Triple-A manager Glenallen Hill informed Cardullo of his move at an Albuquerque team meeting at which point his Isotopes teammates mobbed him. The congratulatory wishes have continued since joining the Rockies in Washington.Its his first day in the big leagues and Im sure hes already earned a lot of respect from his teammates, Weiss said. Everyone in that room knows how difficult it is to get here and you multiply by about 10 when you think of his story.The Rockies optioned infielder Ben Paulsen to Triple-A and transferred right-hander Scott Oberg to the 60-day disabled list.Paulsen hit .115 (3 for 26) with one RBI and one walk in 10 games since being recalled from Albuquerque on Aug. 12.

Tuesdays surgery at Atlantas Piedmont Hospital was performed by Dr. Xavier Duralde and Hawks team physician Dr. Michael Bernot. http://www.airvapormaxnederland.com/ .com) - Manchester City midfielder David Silva is expected to miss the next four weeks because of a calf problem.Isa Guha will be part of the Sky Sports team for our coverage of the Womens World T20 - and she expects her old England team-mates to triumph. Find out why below... In 2009, Guha won the Womens World Cup with England in Australia and the Womens World T20 on home soil. She made over 100 one-day appearances for her country and was ranked No 1 bowler by the ICC. Isa Guha gives her predictions for the Womens World T20 tournament Winner: England Maybe a bit of bias involved, but I do think the England women have a good chance. The pace bowling has generally been consistent and there is enough experience to create a breakthrough if opposition teams go hard. I think the spinners will have to be smarter, especially if the boundaries are brought in, but I think the real key lies with our batting. We saw fearless batsmanship against South Africa with the women playing freely and Im hoping that they are able to transfer that to the World T20 especially during the knockout stages. The ability to cope under pressure will be huge. Watch England Women in action in the ICC Womens World T20. Coverage begins on Sky Sports on 15th March Most sixes: Lizelle Lee (South Africa)We saw some explosive hitting in the recent series v England. South Africa seem to have a few big hitters but I think Lee will have the most impact. Most wickets: Annya Shrubsole (England)Anya has been very successful in India and Bangladesh in the past, mainly because shes retained the ability to swing the ball early.

In T20, I think its really valuable to have a bowler who can bring the ball back into the right hander at pace. If Plan A fails, then the No1 ranked T20 bowler has variations up her sleeve and can bowl excellent yorkers. Sarah Taylors batting and keeping will be crucial for England Englands key player: Sarah TaylorNot just with the bat but also behind the stumps. If she has a good tournament then I can guarantee England will, too. She is experienced enough to shoulder the responsibility with the bat and her consistency in this format in recent times will be valuable to the side going forward.Rising star: Smriti Mandhana (India)At 19 years of age, shes already making waves across the international circuit. A classy and elegant left-hander, Smriti had a successful tour of England in 2014 and recently had Australia scratching their heads in their own backyard. She comes into the tournament in some very good form against SL too. Having played well across the globe, I look forward to watching her bat in conditions that she is most familiar with. Remember the name Smriti Mandhana - you may be hearing it a lot Best thing about touring India: The unfaltering passion for the game - and, hopefully, some big crowds.It all depends on how well the games are marketed to be honest. At the last ICC womens event in India there wasnt much attention, but then hardly anyone knew a World Cup was going on. More TV games and an Indian team that have been doing well recently will hopefully arouse interest. A full house at Eden Gardens?
