"He is a catcher with a great projection, he has a great ability with his glove," Padron told Hardball Scoop. "In the offense, he shows a lot of power in Cedric Peerman Authentic Jersey the right side and a http://www.hockeyjetsofficialauthentic.com/Hoodie lot of ability in the left side. He will improve, he always does, in every aspect of the game. But we are happy of his behavior in and off the field."
Flores signed for $3.1 million, according to Baseball America, which made him the third-highest-paid Venezuela prospect ever, according to MLB.com.
"Every member of our organization who got to know Daniel absolutely loved him. He was energetic, hard-working, and genuinely selfless, always with a smile on his face," said Eddie Romero, Boston's senior vice Cedric Peerman Authentic Jersey president/assistant GM. "He cared for his teammates and was a natural leader.
"I'm at a loss for words today. Daniel was an impressive young man with limitless potential, and his life was cut far too short. My condolences go out to Daniel's mother and sister. Though with us for a short time, Daniel will always be a part of the Red Sox family."
The team said it would have no further comment at this time out of respect for Flores' familyFormer United States international Landon Donovan has decided not to run for U.S. Soccer Federation president, multiple sources with knowledge of Donovan's thinking http://www.officialheatauthentic.com/authentic-8-tyler-johnson-jersey.html have told ESPN FC.
Donovan, 35, was first reported to be contemplating a run by SI.com back on Oct. 18, and sources confirmed to ESPN FC he was mulling over his options.Pitino guided the Cardinals to the 2013 national championship and two other appearances in the Final FourThe Green Bay Packers have cut Martellus Bennett with the failure to disclose a medical condition designation, bringing the tight end's short tenure at Lambeau Field to a surprising end.

Bennett is now subject to waivers. All 31 other teams have until 4 p.m. ET Thursday to submit a claim on him. If he does not get claimed, he becomes a free agent and can sign with any team at any time after thatBennett's release comes hours after Packers coach Mike McCarthy ruled him out for this week because of a shoulder injury.
"I know he was in here yesterday, there's a number of opinions that he's working through, he met with our medical staff yesterday, so they're still going through the process, but he will be out against Chicago,'' McCarthy said before Wednesday's practice.
The veteran tight end hasn't played since he announced during the Packers' bye week that he was "pretty sure" this would be his last NFL season. When Bennett returned from the bye, he offered only a one-word explanation for what led him to that decision: "Life," he said.
It's unclear exactly how Bennett got hurt. He took part in the first practice after the Packers' bye week but hasn't been on the field since then.
The Packers have only two other tight ends on their roster: Lance Kendricks and Richard Rodgers. Without Bennett on Monday night against the Lions, Kendricks had two catches for 32 yards and Rodgers one catch for 5 yards.
The Packers signed Bennett to a three-year, $21 million contract as a free agent in March. They gave him a $6.3 million signing bonus. If Bennett retires, the Packers would likely go after the remaining two-thirds of his signing bonus. If they do, Bennett would have to return $4.2 million. He also would leave up to $12.95 million of additional income on the table.
The Packers already had ruled out two other players this week: right tackle Bryan Bulaga and safety Morgan Burnett. Bulaga tore the ACL in his right knee against the Lions and will miss the rest of the season, while Burnett suffered a groin injury and won't play this week.

But sources close to Donovan say that he wants to stay out of the political side and dedicate his time and energy to improving the game at all levelsSo far, seven candidates have officially declared their intentions. They consist of Boston-based attorney Steve Gans, Springfield, Mass.-based businessman Paul Lapointe, former U.S. international Eric Wynalda, current USSF vice president Carlos Cordeiro, former U.S. international Paul Caligiuri, New York-based attorney Mike Winograd, and former U.S. international and NBC Sports broadcaster Kyle MartinoIn lieu of the buyers' guides I wrote in previous http://www.cowboysnflofficialprostore.com/YOUTH+TYRONE+CRAWFORD+JERSEY offseasons, I'm providing this one, longer overview of players I think might be traded or at least be the subjects of significant demand, even if their current clubs aren't http://www.authenticbluesstore.com/vince-dunn-jersey_c-439.html actively trying to trade themThese players are largely veterans entering the final or penultimate years of their contracts, and in several cases, they are being pushed by prospects coming up behind them in the system.
Here's a rundown of some significant veterans who could be available via trade this winter or should be available, even if they're notDaniel Flores, a 17-year-old catcher who signed with the Boston Red Sox in July when the international amateur signing window opened, died Wednesday due to complications stemming from cancer treatment, the team announced.
Flores was signed out of Venezuela and was classified the second-best prospect available, according to MLB.com. Flores was receiving treatments in Boston when he died.
"Everyone at the Red Sox was shocked to hear of Daniel's tragic passing," Dave Dombrowski, Boston's president of baseball operations said in a statement. "To see the life of young man with so much promise cut short is extremely Cedric Peerman Authentic Jersey saddening for all of us. On behalf of the Red Sox organization, I would like to extend our deepest sympathies and condolences to Daniel's familyA switch-hitter, the 6-foot-1 Flores said during a July news conference in Caracas, Venezuela, that Salvador Perez was his idol, according to El Nacional.
"I hope I can have the [consistency] to play between 15 and 20 years in Major League Baseball. I hope I can get to the Hall of Fame."
Although he was several years away from the majors, Flores was already being hailed by scouts for his defense behind the plate, especially his arm strength and quick release. It's likely he would have ranked among the Red Sox's top five prospects by most projections heading into next season.
