Yovani Gallardo is back with the Texas Rangers for the first
time in three years.

The right-hander who grew up in nearby Fort Worth was selected from the
Triple-A Round Rock roster. He was set to start Sunday at home against the
Colorado Rockies.

The 32-year-old Gallardo went 13-11 with a 3.42 ERA for Texas in
2015 Brock

, and signed a free-agent contract with
Baltimore in 2016.

Cincinnati released him this April after three appearances with a 30.86 ERA.
Texas then signed Gallardo to a minor league contract, and he went 2-1 with a
3.81 ERA in 10 starts at Triple-A.

Manager Jeff Banister said Gallardo could remain in the rotation.

”He’s one of five starters for us now, but we’ll let him get through today
first,” he said.

The Rangers optioned left-hander Brandon Mann to Round Rock. They opened a
spot on the 40-man roster by placing right-hander Doug Fister, who’s out with a
strained right knee Christopher

Oakland Raiders
cornerback Gareon Conley is dealing with another training camp injury and is
expected to miss at least two weeks because of a hip strain.

Conley has not practiced since the first day of training camp last week and
only made a brief appearance Monday while the rest of the team worked out in
pads.

Raiders coach Jon Gruden did not specify how long Conley’s recovery will
take, but it seems certain that the 24th overall pick in 2017 will at least sit
out the team’s first preseason game against Detroit on Aug. 10.

”I don’t have a time frame,” Gruden said. ”I think that (two weeks) would be
a fair assessment, yes.”

For the 23-year-old Conley, it has to feel like deja vu after missing all of
training camp as a rookie because of shin injury that lingered into the regular
season.

Oakland’s first-round draft pick a year ago Authentic
Mats Zuccarello Jersey
, Conley played in only two games last
season and showed his potential when he made a stellar leaping breakup of a pass
against the Jets in Week 2. But he never fully recovered from the injury and was
placed on injured reserve in November.

Conley arrived in Napa last week hopeful of claiming a starting spot in
Oakland’s revamped secondary. In a tweet the night before the first practice, he
wrote: ”Praying for a healthy camp and a healthy season for me and all my
brothas.”

Conley got off to a good start, making an athletic play Friday to break up a
pass in 7-on-7 drills after initially getting beat on an inside move. He left
practice not long after that and has yet to return.

His absence comes as the Raiders are installing a new system under defensive
coordinator Paul Guenther.

Guenther said he was optimistic that Conley won’t be out too long and noted
that his absence has opened up opportunities for other players.

”We have a lot of guys working out there at corner. It’s going to be a good
battle to see who come out of it,” Guenther said. ”We’re going to try to get him
back on the field and make sure he’s in the meeting room taking notes and
understanding that he’s not getting behind with the techniques of what we’re
teaching.”

While Conley recovers, Daryl Worley has been practicing at right cornerback
with the starting defense. Veteran Rashaan Melvin is on the left side.

Asked if he was concerned about Conley’s injury Antti
Niemi Jersey
, Gruden paused.

”I don’t know if concerned is the word. I think disappointed is the word,”
Gruden said. ”He comes out to start training camp, he’s in superb shape, he
makes a great play and he gets a setback. Hopefully he comes back sooner than
later. Disappointed is the big word I think. His heart is broken. He’s put a lot
into this and he knows he has to stay healthy and get out there for us because
we need him.”
