Garnar says the county is still working on a plan, but it will be a long and slow implementation. Broome County officials say New York City may be seeing a flattened curve, but opening too early may be ineffective for the county. “I think the apex is going to happen, I think we’re probably a couple weeks behind what the city is,” said Broome County Executive Jason Garnar. “Not just focusing on economic recovery, we’ve already heard from The Agency on economic recovery, but all types of recovery,” said Garnar. “We’re always re-evaluation, what are our emergency orders, every five days we evaluate whether or not we should keep an emergency order. A lot of what we do is dependent on what the state says,” said Garnar. (WBNG) — Governor Cuomo says it’s time to start thinking about life after the COVID-19 pandemic ends. Broome County officials say they’re already working on a plan for the transition. Garnar says the process of transitioning back will be slow to prevent the virus from spreading rapidly again. “We have to understand on the reopening, as much as we have this emotion that we want it to happen, we want it to happen now, we can’t take this anymore, everyone feels the same. It’s a delicate balance, remember what we have to do on reopening, remember this has never been done before,” said Governor Cuomo. The Recovery Task Force, Garnar says, will take a holistic approach to recovering from the pandemic. From mental health issues to unemployment, he says his plan is constantly evolving.
ANAHEIM — Kole Calhoun is on the disabled list thanks to a strained right oblique. Might the time off help the Angels outfielder break out of his season-long hitting slump?“Maybe,” Manager Mike Scioscia said Saturday. “That’s not the way you want to get your break, though.”The Angels placed Calhoun on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to Friday, taking the outfielder off their lineup card in the midst of the worst hitting performance of his career. Through 173 plate appearances this year, Calhoun has a slash line of .145/.195/.179 — numbers far below his career average of .254/.321/.410.Sign up for Home Turf and get 3 exclusive stories every SoCal sports fan must read, sent daily.

He has 11 RBIs this year, going yard just once. Scioscia said Calhoun felt tightness in his right oblique when the Angels were getting to ready to leave Detroit earlier this week.“He was in the cage working a lot,” Scioscia said. “I think some things just stiffened up. It’s just something we need to address right now. … There’s no timetable yet, but hopefully it’s not too severe.”The Angels also optioned right-hander Jaime Barría (5-1, 2.48), who pitched six shutout innings against the Rangers on Friday night. He could be recalled again for a June 12 game in Seattle, when the team will again need a sixth starting pitcher.The club recalled Kaleb Cowart and Michael Hermosillo from Triple-A Salt Lake, starting the latter in right field against the Rangers on Saturday and batting him ninth.SURGERY GIVES SHOEMAKER CLARITY Shoemaker also had surgery last August to relieve radial nerve compression in his forearm. The right-hander pitched 5-2/3 innings on March 31 before lingering discomfort forced him onto the disabled list.ALSOScioscia tried to downplay any lingering tensions from Friday night, when a slide by the Rangers’ Rougned Odor resulted in a left leg gash for Angels shortstop Andrelton Simmons. “It’s kind of an unfortunate incident,” Scioscia said. “But it’s past us, I think. There was a little bit of veer on the slide.” …Infielder Zack Cozart, who had an MRI on his left forearm Friday, is “progressing quickly” according to Scioscia, and could be nearing a return to the lineup. He has not played since May 29. …The Angels held a pre-game ceremony for Albert Pujols, emblazoning the number “3000” in the outfield to commemorate the slugger’s recent career hits milestone. Pujols was also presented with a picture of himself made of 9,858 screws, representing the number of at-bats he needed to reach 3,000 hits.

That procedure, performed on Tuesday, revealed a tear in the middle of his pronator teres tendon — an injury that none of his doctors had ever seen before.Dr. Steven Shin repaired the tendon, and Shoemaker appeared to be in good spirits on Saturday afternoon despite not knowing when he might finally make it back to the mound.“MRIs, bone scans, nerve studies — everything showed to be pretty clean,” Shoemaker said. “I’m really thankful we went in and did the exploratory procedure, because we would have never found this if we didn’t. That’s nice to have that answer.”Related Articles Angels’ Mike Trout working on his defense, thanks to Twitter
