‘Your eyes get big’: Why Kyle Hendricks is pitching up in the zone

MLB JERSEYS
It's a trend that is becoming more and more popular with pitchers, even the soft-tossing ones such as Chicago Cubs righty Kyle Hendricks. When he takes the mound against the St. Louis Cardinals on Sunday night, don't be surprised if you see his catcher coming out of his crouch on almost half the pitches he throws. Living upstairs in the strike zone -- or even higher -- is no longer just for the flamethrowers. The launch-angle era has changed strategies for many, including hurlers who average 87 mph on their fastball. "I've been doing it more lately," Hendricks said last week. "The way the game is going, the way guys are swinging, I feel like more of the holes are being presented up in the zone now." "More" might be…

Will Bills’ lack of a clear-cut No. 1 receiver hold them back?

Will Bills’ lack of a clear-cut No. 1 receiver hold them back?

NFL JERSEYS
Since 2016, all but three NFL teams have featured a wide receiver who has finished a season ranked within the top 32 at his position in receiving yards. The Buffalo Bills have been an exception, along with the Jacksonville Jaguars and Chicago Bears. The last Bills wideout to place among the NFL's best 32 was Sammy Watkins, whose 1,047 yards in 2015 were 19th most among receivers. Watkins, often injured, fell short of his potential after being drafted No. 4 overall in 2014. That in part led to Watkins being traded to the Los Angeles Rams during training camp in 2017. However, in the nearly two years since, the Bills have yet to adequately fill the hole at the top of their wide receiver depth chart. Jordan Matthews and Kelvin…
