LOS ANGELES -- The call that Jose De Leon has been waiting for all season finally came.The 24-year-old pitcher will make his big-league debut on Sunday for the NL West-leading Los Angeles Dodgers against the San Diego Padres.De Leon was 7-1 with a 2.61 ERA in 16 starts for Triple-A Oklahoma City while limiting opposing batters to a .194 average. He struck out 111 batters against just 20 walks this season.After getting the news, De Leon shared it with his parents, who quickly made plans to arrive in Los Angeles on Saturday night.They were really happy, he said. They were crying and jumping all over the place. It still hasnt hit me.With the Dodgers rotation plagued by injuries, De Leon couldnt help but wonder when his turn would come to join the big-league club. He watched as four other rookies were brought up, including Julio Urias who proved reliable in the Dodgers fight to protect their slim division lead over San Francisco.I needed to be here in Los Angeles this year, De Leon said, because I wanted Vin Scully to call my game.Scully, the 88-year-old Hall of Fame broadcaster, is retiring at seasons end after a record 67 years in the Dodgers booth.The team hasnt indicated how long De Leon might stick around, although the right-hander has extra innings to spare after missing most of April and May with an ankle injury and shoulder inflammation.Ive been throwing strikes and attacking the zone. Every night I go out I just try to improve something, he said. Keep it simple and not try to do too much, I think thats the key.De Leon was taken 24th in the 2013 draft out of Southern University. His first season in Rookie ball was a harsh introduction, with De Leon posting a 6.96 ERA. The following year, he improved enough to break Clayton Kershaws low Class-A Great Lakes single-game strikeout record with 14. He was promoted to Class-AA Tulsa last year.He looks like hes in great shape, and hes on a roll right now, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. Just to see that youthful enthusiasm that weve seen from a lot of our guys this year is pretty cool.De Leon last pitched on Aug. 28 for Oklahoma City against Colorado Springs, allowing four hits in 7 2/3 scoreless innings. He struck out a season-high 13 and had no walks. Before being promoted, he hadnt allowed a run in 17 2/3 innings and had 10 or more strikeouts in his last three starts.He began the season ranked as the 24th overall prospect in the majors by MLB.com and the Dodgers No. 3 prospect.Roberts was asked who his favorite Puerto Rican player is.Well, if he throws well ..., the manager said, smiling and his voice trailing off.De Leon typically goes to the movies on days he pitches as way to combat nerves. With Sundays day game, he wont get that chance.Its going to be my dream, he said. Ive had this dream since I was a kid. Its going to be really emotional, I know that, but Ill just try to keep focused and enjoy the ride. Frank Jackson Jersey . The home side created most of the chances but struggled to break down Braunschweigs resilient defence, resulting in the Bundesligas 1,000th scoreless draw. Josh Hart Pelicans Jersey . Pence singled in the winning run with no outs in the ninth inning to give the Giants a 7-6 victory over the San Diego Padres on Sunday. https://www.pelicanslockerroom.com/Zylan-Cheatham-City-Edition-Jersey/ . -- Washington Redskins tight end Fred Davis was charged Thursday with driving while intoxicated, a day after he was suspended for an NFL substance-abuse policy violation. New Orleans Pelicans Jerseys . This should be celebrated because it will not always be this way. With the amount of money given to players by their clubs these days, it is a wonder that so many of those teams allow the sport to continue to take away many of their assets so they can play for a different team in the middle of their season. ETwaun Moore Jersey . - Derek Wolfe says hes finally healthy after suffering a seizure in November that doctors now believe was related to the spinal cord injury he suffered in the preseason. All grind and no glamour, the Silver Ferns wing defence role will come under the microscope when New Zealand meet Australia in the fourth and final Constellation Cup netball Test in Invercargill on Thursday.With Kayla Cullen sidelined for three months following foot surgery, the Silver Ferns have been scrambling to fill what coach Janine Southby describes as a hugely under-rated position.I think its pretty obvious were light on the ground there at the moment, she said on Wednesday.I dont know if its the most glorious position out on the court, and its not the one that gets all the kudos.But certainly wing defence is a pivotal position - when youve got a quality wing defence, you know.Long-time centre Laura Langman, who made her debut 11 years and 140 games ago for the Silver Ferns at wing defence, has provided that quality since taking over the role in Cullens absence.Langmans speed and ability to read the game have proven invaluable, and her tenacity in marking one-on-one played an important part in New Zealands 53-51 second-Test win in Launceston.Lauras that player that can shut someone down, she does a lot of ground work and wearing down, and she came up with some great tips and intercepts in that second test, Southby said.Circle ddefender Anna Harrison played a cameo quarter on the wing in the third Test, but her impact is greatest at goal keep or goal defence.ddddddddddddThe New Zealanders give away significant height to Australian shooters Caitlin Bassett and Gretel Tippett, who both top 1.90m comfortably, and Southby says more work is needed up-court to slow down the feed into the rangy, mobile pair.The circle like to know where the feed is coming from, and when thats controlled, it makes their job a lot easier.For a goal keeper or goal defence, if youve got feeders coming from all over the show and spinning at you, its damn hard work.Tippett shared game time with veteran goal attack Natalie Medhurst in the first two Tests, but played all four quarters in the third and looks to be an exciting long-term prospect for Australia.The 23-year-old basketball convert has only 12 Tests to her credit, but has impressed Southby with her increasing confidence and maturity.There was a lot more determination about the way she played in the third Test, and we didnt get into her head at all.We know weve got a lot of work to do to shut her down.
