    The Detroit Tigers remain the top team in the TSN.ca MLB Power Rankings, holding off the surging Los Angeles Dodgers. Detroit has been led, not surprisingly, by third baseman Miguel Cabrera, who has a 1.265 OPS in August and now has a career-best 1.141 OPS for the season, leading the major leagues. Cincinnati, with a 9-3 record in the last dozen games, has moved up from eight to five, while the Yankees are 7-3 in their last 10, moving up from 16 to 12. Further down the rankings, both the Toronto Blue Jays and Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim moved up, to 19 and 23, respectively. Going the wrong way, the Chicago Cubs, Milwaukee Brewers and Philadelphia Phillies -- all ranked in the lower third -- dropped in this weeks rankings.

Wholesale Baseball Jerseys . John Lucas, signed as a mentor for rookie Trey Burke, showed he can score if required, scoring 12 points of his 16 points in the second quarter as Utah built an 18-point lead. Jared Goff will make his first NFL start at quarterback for the Los Angeles Rams?in front of a home crowd on Sunday against the Miami Dolphins, the team announced Tuesday.Rams coach Jeff Fisher informed Goff and Case Keenum of the switch when he met with the quarterbacks on Tuesday morning, sources told ESPN. Keenum, who started the teams first nine games, will be the backup, and second-year quarterback?Sean Mannion will remain No. 3, for now.I think its time, Goff said after Tuesdays practice. Im ready to move forward and play. Im just going to work hard and hopefully win.Goff was the first pick in the 2016 NFL draft, but he made steady progress in practice during the first half of the season. Sources said the Rams staff believed the rookie from Cal was close to stepping in as the starter within the past two weeks, but Keenum remained the quarterback for Sundays 9-6 road win against the?New York Jets?at MetLife Stadium.It was the third game in which the Rams offense failed to score a touchdown, which prompted Fisher to joke Monday that his team was an offensive juggernaut and 2-1 in games when the Rams had not produced a TD.The Rams confidence in Goff is evident, as the 4-5 team remains in contention for a playoff spot. He has been getting limited reps with the first-team offense the past few weeks, including all the first-team reps during the Rams bye in Week 8.Hes ready, hes preparing and doing well, Fisher said of Goff on Monday. Hes anxious and confident.Fisher has maintained that Goff would be the starter when hes ready. Goff was inactive for Week 1, with Mannion serving as Keenums backup; but Goff has been the No. 2 quarterback since Week 2.It wasnt a spontaneous decision, Fisher said. It was a progression. Its a gut feel. Its not an easy thing. It takes time, and we gave it time, and it was the right decision. Were looking forward to watching him play.Hes going to have some moments, like all young quarterbacks do, but hes going to do well.Even though Goff was the first overall pick, five other rookie quarterbacks have started at least one NFL game this season, in part due to unforeseen circumstances: Carson Wentz (Eagles), Dak Prescott (Cowboys), Jacoby Brissett ((Patriots), Cody Kessler (Browns) and Paxton Lynch (Broncos).ddddddddddddWentz and Prescott have started all of their teams games.There is not necessarily a belief that Goff alone will solve the Rams anemic offense, a source said. Rams running back Todd Gurley has yet to get untracked, and the offensive line play has been spotty at times. The Rams rank second worst in the league in total offense and have scored the fewest points (139) in the NFL.Nevertheless, with Goff now fully indoctrinated into the offense after exclusively running a no-huddle spread attack during four seasons at Cal, team sources said there is hope he will energize the team and a home fan base that was hostile during the teams most recent game at the Coliseum -- a 13-10 loss to the Carolina Panthers?on Nov. 6. That was the Rams fourth consecutive loss after a 3-1 start.Fisher said he has finally seen enough on the field -- and from Goff in practice -- to warrant the inevitable change.It feels like a long time since Ive got out there and played, Goff said. Im excited to get back out there. ... I saw a lot of stuff from the sidelines, as much as you can see during games, and learned from a lot of the things Case did -- good and bad. Its been a long process, I guess, trying to pick up everything and get ready for it. I think I have, and I think Ive been ready for a little while. I feel good, and I feel excited.This Sunday, Goff will face a Dolphins defensive front seven that overwhelmed the Chargers offensive line and frustrated veteran quarterback?Philip Rivers into throwing four interceptions in Sundays 31-24 victory at San Diego. Miami is on a four-game winning streak.The rest of the Rams schedule after the game against the Dolphins also would present its challenges for Goff. The Rams play early games at New Orleans (Nov. 27) and at New England (Dec. 4), then host Atlanta (Dec. 11) and visit Seattle (Dec. 15, a Thursday night) before finishing with home games against San Francisco (Dec. 24) and Arizona (Jan. 1).Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.
