Carson Palmer feels strong after limiting off-season throws

GLENDALE, Ariz. — For the first time in his career, Carson Palmer abandoned his usual pattern and didn’t throw at all for several months. The 37-year-old quarterback says the results are obvious as he begins his fifth training camp with the Arizona Cardinals. “It’s hard to explain. You just feel better,” Palmer said before the team went through its first training camp practice Saturday. “You feel like you have more zip, more velocity. … I feel like I can go out and throw 150 balls in practice (which he said he won’t do). I don’t think I felt that way coming into camp last year.” After their disappointing 2016 season,… Read More

Giants notes: Jae-gyun Hwang optioned to minors as part of roster reshuffling

SAN FRANCISCO – The Giants might be having their most miserable and forgettable season in several generations, but don’t try to take June 28 away from Jae-gyun Hwang. That’s the magical day when Hwang fulfilled a dream by appearing in his first major league game, and then walked on a cloud after hitting a home run. If that’s all that Hwang achieves as a big leaguer, then his decision to turn away more lucrative offers in Korea will be worth the sacrifice. His home run against the Rockies easily ranks as the best moment of the Giants’ wasted season, too. It’s been tough for Hwang to keep himself sharp while… Read More
