Giants rookie running back Saquon Barkley showed at the Scouting Combine that he’s a very well proportioned individual. He’ll show even more soon.
Barkley has agreed to appear nude in ESPN Magazine’s annual Body Issue, which comes out next week.
Zach Weatherford — who designed the workouts for the U.S. Navy SEALS, and has drawn praise from Nets team leader DeMarre Carroll — will still head the team as director of human performance. The Nets had just promoted Sebastien Poirier to head athletic trainer, and created a new director of sports science position for their former strength and conditioning coach Dan Meehan.
The Giants announced after Thursday their 6-3 win over Miami, the 32-year-old broke the fifth metatarsal in his left hand, which is an injury very similar to the one Madison Bumgarner suffered in spring training.
He is hopeful to be back soon after the All-Star break.
Longoria having surgery Tuesday. Not needed but will help speed recovery/minimize muscle atrophy to have a permanent pin inserted. Out 6-8 weeks but aims to return shortly after All-Star break.
Longoria was batting.246 with 10 home runs and 34 RBIs before the incident. He has five years remaining on the six-year, $100 million contract he signed with the Rays before the 2017 season. He was acquired via trade by the Giants in the offseason.
It is likely Kelby Tomlinson will see a good amount of time at third base in Longoria’s absence.
