n in-season eligibility, while pitchers need to make three starts to earn st

VAL GARDENA, Italy -- Aksel Lund Svindal was the only skier missing from the Norwegian podium party. Marquinhos Jersey .Olympic champion Kjetil Jansrud and teammate Aleksander Aamodt Kilde finished 1-2 in a super-G on Friday to extend Norways recent dominance in Val Gardena -- and in the World Cup speed events.It could have been another podium sweep for the Attacking Vikings but Svindal wasted a fast start to his run with two major mistakes, ultimately skiing through a gate and not finishing.Team Norway likes Val Gardena, Kilde said. Unfortunately we didnt get Aksel with us this time but hell for sure be back. Its always fun to ski the Saslong and the snow is always good.When Jansrud crossed the finish line and came to a stop he pointed toward Kilde in the leaders spot.Everything flows pretty well for us these days, Jansrud said.Jansrud finished 0.06 seconds ahead of Kilde, and 0.13 in front of third-place Canadian veteran Erik Guay.Olympic downhill champion Matthias Mayer of Austria finished fourth, 0.48 behind, as he returned to the site of a horrific crash a year ago which ended his season.Olympic combined champion Sandro Viletta was airlifted off the course by helicopter to a local hospital after crashing and sliding into the safety netting backward. Race organizers said Viletta injured his right knee.Jansrud has won all three speed races this season. He swept a super-G and downhill in Val dIsere, France, this month.Its humbling to be able to pull it off, Jansrud said. I dont know how long it can continue but Ill try as long as possible.Last year in Val Gardena, Svindal, Jansrud, and Kilde finished 1-2-3 for Norway in the super-G.Norwegians have won the Val Gardena super-G five consecutive times, with Svindal posting three victories and Jansrud two.As a team were always working good with each other and pushing each other, said Kilde, who edged older teammates Jansrud and Svindal to take the season-long super-G title last season. Having guys like Aksel and Kjetil is an advantage for me.Since the start of the 2012-13 season, Norwegian skiers have won 16 of the 27 World Cup super-Gs. No other country has more than four wins in this span.It was the 17th career World Cup victory for Jansrud, who won the super-G at the 2014 Sochi Games.The 100 points earned moved Jansrud up to second in the overall standings, 140 points behind five-time defending champion Marcel Hirscher of Austria, who does not race downhill.Adrian Smiseth Sejersted, another young Norwegian, posted his best career result in 11th, in just the fourth World Cup super-G of his career.Including his downhill victory three years ago, it was Guays fourth podium result in Val Gardena.Val Gardena has always been good to me, said Guay, who is regaining his form following his sixth knee surgery. A lot of times when I ski super-G I dont push as hard to the limits as I should but today I skied to the edge, no mistakes, clean run, and Im very happy.Conditions were perfect, with the temperature below freezing level, visibility good and the snow hard and compact.On Saturday, American skier Steven Nyman, who finished 25th, will be aiming to match Austrian great Franz Klammer and Italian skier Kristian Ghedina with his fourth Val Gardena downhill win -- although the Norwegians are also favored.---Andrew Dampf on Twitter: Elias Brazil Jersey . Vokoun departed practice on Saturday morning after discovering swelling in his thigh. He was taken to a local hospital where the clot was revealed. The club announced the surgery following a 5-3 exhibition loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets. Philippe Coutinho Brazil Jersey . While hell be dialed in to that tournament on a course he loves, you can forgive him if his eyes glance down the calendar just a bit, towards April. . Dukurs winning time was 1 minute, 45.76 seconds, a quarter-second better than Russias Alexander Tretiakov. Lativas Tomass Dukurs was third, 1.41 seconds off the pace. Jon Montgomery of Eckville, Alta. After fielding many questions surrounding the breakthrough campaign by this Arizona Diamondbacks third baseman, Ive examined Jake Lambs profile closely and vaulted him within my top 100 overall players. Simply put, hes earned it, deservedly ranked in the third/fourth third-base tier that includes Adrian Beltre and Evan Longoria.Much of the foundation for Lambs breakthrough year comes from an adjustment he made to his swing during the winter, which has fueled a noticeable jump in power: His isolated power has nearly tripled (.123 in 2015, .328 this season), he has increased his fly-ball rate by more than two percent (26.2 percent in 2015, 28.6 percent in 2016) and he has boosted his average fly-ball rate by 22 feet (301.6 in 2015, 323.7 in 2016).Perhaps equally encouraging is Lambs boosted performance against left-handed pitching: Hes a .190/.307/.429 hitter, for .238 isolated power, after sub-.100 isolated power numbers against them in both 2014 and 2015. That helped earn him six starts in the Arizona Diamondbacks past 11 games against left-handed pitchers.Still, Lambs ranking (97th overall) might seem modest for the No. 36 name on the Player Rater. Some regression needs be baked into any rest-of-year projection, particularly in the power department. For the season, Lamb has homered on 18.6 percent of his fly balls, second-highest among qualifiers, and since May 9 he has a major league-high 22.0 percent rate, resulting in 18 of his 21 homers for the season. To put that number into perspective, consider the major league leaders (among qualifiers) the past five seasons: Giancarlo Stanton, 15.2 percent in 2011; Chris Davis, 16.3 in 2012; Pedro Alvarez, 18.3 in 2013; Stanton, 17.3 in 2014; Nelson Cruz, 18.4 in 2015.My best guess at his projection: .275-.280 batting average, 10-12 home runs.Here are some quick thoughts about the weeks other big movers...There might not be a tougher player to rank this week than Clayton Kershaw, who was shut down indefinitely following a setback with his injured back. Its possible that this might merely push back his recovery by a matter of days, rather than weeks, but the chances well see Kershaw before August are now poor, and hes now enough of a risk that a compelling case could be made to lower him to 14th at the position (roughly 50th overall). Your hope should be eight top-shelf starts upon his return.Wil Myers is legit. Consider: .313 BABIP (81st in the majors, and four points beneath his career number), 13.4 home run/fly ball percentage (29th, and in line with his 12.7 percent rookie-year number).Jacob deGroms return to the top 10 starting pitchers is much more a testament to his own ability than it is a criticism of the positions depth in the 11-20 tier. Hes once again the safe guy, with a 2.32 ERA, 0.94 WHIP and 29.4 percent strikeout rate in his past 10 starts, and thats quite an asset to own in a season like this.Im only lowering Gregory Polanco amidst concerns about his recent hamstring injury. Hes a .171 hitter thus far in July -- nine games, though -- and Im somewhat concerned that hell be playing these next few weeks at less than full strength.We talked quite a bit about Dallass Keuchels performance on Wednesdays Fantasy Focus Baseball podcast, and while I think hes no longer a Cy Young-caliber pitcher statistically speaking, hes back to being a solid member of the top 20 starters, thanks to six consecutive quality starts as well as a 3. Rodrigo Caio Jersey. 2 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 21.9 percent strikeout rate in his past 10 turns.With Dee Gordons return upcoming -- hes eligible to play in eight days, barring Miami Marlins rainouts between now and then -- he might be under-ranked as the No. 13 second baseman and No. 118 player overall. I think hes closer to 8-and-80 in those sets from the day he returns, so hell almost assuredly rank there in a week.Since May 21, Matt Shoemaker has a 29.1 percent strikeout rate, ninth-best among qualifiers, and a 9.78:1 strikeout-to-walk ratio, behind only Mike Leake (11.40:1) and Jose Fernandez (9.90:1).Kudos to the Chicago Cubs for giving Willson Contreras nine starts behind the plate in their past 17 games overall, signaling that hes now their top choice to start a majority of the time there. Contreras also has eight starts in left field during that time, and has generally been batting fourth or fifth, giving him a playing-time advantage that no other catcher quite enjoys. Will it last? If so, he probably warrants a top-100 ranking rather than 152nd (and sixth among catchers), but Id like to see a little more first.Most projections systems continue to love Drew Smyly, but after a nine-start stretch during which time he had only one quality start and an 8.03 ERA and 1.72 WHIP, hes perhaps too generously ranked as even my No. 52 starting pitcher. I still think theres top-20 talent in that left arm, though, but my patience is running out.New ESPN position eligibilityThe following players added new position eligibility within the past two weeks. As a reminder, position players need to appear 10 times at a new position to gain in-season eligibility, while pitchers need to make three starts to earn starting-pitching eligibility or five relief appearances to earn relief-pitching eligibility.Chris Beck (RP), Willson Contreras (OF), Chase dArnaud (OF), Wilmer Flores (1B), Raisel Iglesias (RP), Jordan Lyles (RP), Jefry Marte (OF), Shawn OMalley (SS), Ramiro Pena (2B), Jose Peraza (OF), Hernan Perez (OF), Jurickson Profar (1B), Rob Refsnyder (OF).The following players are within two games of earning new eligibility, with their total games played noted at the listed position.Cristhian Adames (2B, 9 games), Mike Aviles (2B, 9 games), Christian Colon (3B, 8 games), Chase dArnaud (2B, 9 games), Stephen Drew (3B, 9 games; SS, 9 games), Prince Fielder (1B, 9 games), Adam Frazier (OF, 8 games), Jedd Gyorko (3B, 9 games; 1B, 8 games), Matt Holliday (1B, 8 games), Howie Kendrick (1B, 8 games), Matt McBride (C, 9 games), Jose Reyes (3B, 9 games).Going-forward rankings: Week 15Listed below are my updated, going-forward rankings.
