  • Barring unforeseen circumstances Casey Hayward Jersey , rookie Josh Rosen will begin his first NFL season on the sidelines as Arizona's backup quarterback.

     

    The preseason, though, will be his chance to shine, beginning Saturday night when the Cardinals play at home against the Los Angeles Chargers.

    "We want him to play quite a bit and really get into the flow of the game," coach Steve Wilks said.

    Rosen said his two weeks of training camp have "gone really well."

    "I think I've gotten better pretty much every day since I've gotten here," the former UCLA star said before Wednesday' practice.

    Sam Bradford is Arizona's starter but the Cardinals view Rosen as their franchise quarterback of the future. Why else would they have moved up five spots in the draft to pluck him 10th overall?

    Asked for specific areas of improvement since he became a pro, Rosen cites "a bunch of things."

    "The most tangible is probably the playbook," he said. "I feel a lot more comfortable and fluid with it at the line of scrimmage. I'm focusing more and more with what the defense is trying to do to me rather than making sure I get the right snap count and in the right protection."

    He said he's also picking up "the little things on how to use the double-cadence to try and buy yourself time and get someone offside, just little tricks of the trade I didn't know when I was in college."

    From the beginning Bradford and Rosen seem to have gotten along well.

    "Sam's actually really good with all those little things," Rosen said. "He's a crafty vet and very successful for a lot of different reasons. He might not share every reason with me, but I'll take advantage of the ones that he does."

    Bradford said Rosen "asks the right questions."

    "He's hungry for information," Bradford said. "It seems like he's always trying to learn something. It doesn't stop in the meeting rooms. Even at the dinner table he'll ask me.

    "It's fun to be around someone like that and to hopefully try to be able to help him. I share with him some of the experiences I've had, some of the things I've learned over the years. Hopefully it can relate to him and can help him in some way."

    Wilks wouldn't say how much Rosen will play on Saturday night but it will be long enough to do some serious evaluation.

    "The mechanics of really running the offense," Wilks said, "putting guys in the right position from a protection standpoint, going through his progression and reads and really just trying to detail the fundamentals."

    Rosen is running second on the depth chart Kurt Coleman Jersey , ahead of Mike Glennon, who also figures to play a lot Saturday.

    Early in camp, Rosen said he was thinking too much.

    "I think I've gotten a lot better since then and continue to each day," he said. "The less thinking you can do, the more you can allow yourself to physically do what I've been doing since Pop Warner, and play the game I know."

    As a big-name rookie quarterback, Rosen knows his every move will be scrutinized by fans and critics.

    "It's part of the game," he said. "I stay relatively offline for the most part. The most pressure I feel from anyone is myself. I'm very, very highly self-critical, almost too much at times. There's no pressure that should be greater than my own."

    There's no changing his throwing style either, which includes an occasional sidearm toss on a bubble screen.

    "It's not just how hard or far you can throw it," Rosen said. "It's being able to change your arm slot and delivery. I think Aaron (Rodgers) is the best at it because sort of like mid-throw, your ability to throw sidearm to fit a quick screen in there or just kind of contort your body to get halfback screens and stuff in there."

    No one has tried to alter that style, he said.

    "They drafted me for what I can do and I'm here to deliver that," Rosen said.

    He said he's made preparation for the NFL a day-by-day process.

    "Right now I'm fully in work mode," he said. "I'm trying to be the best that I can be and over the course of my career I'm trying to win Super Bowls. And right now I'm trying to put my best foot forward in this preseason game."

    Jose Trevino went from preparing for a game in Double-A to playing twice in less than 24 hours for the Texas Rangers Kentavius Street Jersey , and delivering a tying RBI with his first big league hit.

     

    The rookie catcher’s single in the seventh inning tied Saturday’s game against the Colorado Rockies, and 39-year-old active career hits leader Adrian Beltre put the Rangers ahead with a two-run triple in the eighth as they stopped a seven-game skid with a 5-2 victory.

    ”I couldn’t tell you if I was more excited to get the tying RBI or my first hit, but I knew if I got the RBI, it’d be a hit,” Trevino said. ”It’s been crazy, just trying to soak it all in and slow it down.”

    Trevino was going through his pregame workouts Friday at Frisco, about 35 miles from the Rangers’ ballpark, when he got the late call-up to the big leagues. Rangers starting catcher Robinson Chirinos was going to serve his one-game MLB suspension for the scuffle after a home plate collision with Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp on Wednesday night in Los Angeles.

    Carlos Perez started Friday night behind the plate, but he injured his right ankle in the second inning, and Trevino quickly made his big league debut.

    ”No time to be nervous,” Trevino said.

    When Perez got to the ballpark Saturday for a day game, he found out he was in the starting lineup. Perez went on the 10-day disabled list, and Chirinos was still sore from the collision.

    ”He’s handled it great. To be forced into duty on a night when he came in as kind of an emergency,” manager Jeff Banister said. ”That at-bat at the end there (Saturday) was tremendous. He needs to be proud of himself.”

    Rougned Odor led off the Texas seventh with triple. He scored on a double by Isiah Kiner-Falefa, who came home when Trevino grounded a ball through the left side of the infield to tie the game at 2.

    Beltre, who has been on the disabled list twice this season because of a strained left hamstring Jaron Brown Jersey , got the triple on a fly ball that went over the head of right fielder Carlos Gonzalez and ricocheted off the bottom half of the outfield wall. It was Beltre’s 3,095th career hit.

    ”As soon as I hit it, I knew it was enough to score the runs, so that’s all I cared,” Beltre said.

    ”Off the bat, it looked like it was going to go over the fence. I tried to do as much as possible,” Gonzalez said. ”I guess we can say we got lucky that it didn’t go over the fence.”

    Delino DeShields drew a leadoff walk against Harrison Musgrave (0-2), and went to third on Jurickson Profar’s single before the 38th career triple for Beltre, who is in his 21st season. Pinch-runner Ryan Rua came home on Odor’s sacrifice fly.

    Jose Leclerc (2-2) struck out two in a perfect eighth and Keone Kela worked the ninth for his 15th save, the most in the majors without a blown chance.

    Rangers starter Mike Minor struck out six while matching his season long with seven innings. He had a balk and a wild pitch, both playing into the Rockies runs.

    Ian Desmond walked in the second and advanced on a balk before a two-out single by Gonzalez. D.J. LeMahieu had a leadoff single in the sixth, and was at third after a wild pitch before coming home on Nolan Arenado’s sac fly.

    But Minor worked out of a bases-loaded jam in the seventh.

    ”To keep the score the way it was, to give our guys that little energy level to say `Hey, we’re still in this’,” Banister said. ”If we give up a couple of runs there, it’s probably a little different situation.”

    GETTING ON BASE

    Rangers outfielder Shin-Soo Choo had a leadoff walk in the first George Blanda Jersey , before adding two hits. He has reached base in 30 consecutive games for the longest streak in the American League this season.

    STARTING FREE

    Colorado left-hander Kyle Freeland, who won all four of his interleague starts as a rookie last season, permitted two runs and eight hits in seven innings.

    ”He’s made great strides. I think there’s a confidence level there to utilize a couple of different pitches,” manager Bud Black said. ”He’s limiting mistakes, especially with runners on base. We’re seeing growth before our eyes.”

    TRAINER’S ROOM

    Rangers: SS Elvis Andrus, out since fracturing his right elbow April 11, was moved from Frisco to Triple-A Round Rock. He could rejoin the Rangers as early as Monday.

    UP NEXT

    RHP Yovani Gallardo, who has pitched for three different major league teams since leaving his hometown Rangers after the 2015 season, is expected to start the series finale for Texas. He has been at Triple-A since signing a minor league deal in April after being designated for assignment by Cincinnati. RHP Jon Gray, with a 7.98 ERA his last six starts, goes for the Rockies.
