For all their investment in free agent quarterbacks, it still seems sort of inevitable that Josh Rosen will be the Cardinals starter sooner rather than later.
In practice, at least, that happened yesterday.
Via Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com, the rookie worked with the starters during the first session of OTAs.
For a first introduction to many of their veterans, sounding confident is a good first step. And while the plan might be to ease him into things, the construction of their roster also suggests he’s going to get a chance.
Andy Weidl was named director of player personnel and Alan Wolking assistant director of college scouting. They also hired former Patriots scout Patrick Stewart as national scout, and hired area scouts Shawn Heinlen (Southwest), Ryan Myers (West Coast), Jim Ward (Northeast). Also, Casey Weidl was named player personnel coordinator and Lee DiValerio scouting assistant.
Andy Weidel joined the team last year, after working with vice president of player personnel Joe Douglas in Baltimore.
Heinlen spent the last 15 years with the Bills.
The loss was only the fifth on the road this season by the Angels (26-22) against 14 wins.
The Blue Jays had all the breaks in winning for the first time on the seven-game homestand that they started by losing all four games to the Oakland Athletics.
They scored all five of their runs Tuesday in the first inning. Four of them were unearned because right fielder Chris Young was charged with an error when he could not catch a fly ball by Russell Martin. Two runs scored on the miscue.
