OTTAWA -- Sixteen-year-old Isabela Onyshko and 78-year-old Al Hanet are officially the youngest and oldest Canadians participating at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Scotland as Canada officially confirmed its roster on Thursday for the international athletics competition. Onyshko, from Minnedosa, Man., will compete in artistic gymnastics while Hanet, from Kelowna, B.C., will compete in lawn bowling as a para-athlete. "It is exciting that our Canadian athletes are starting to arrive at the Games Village," said Chantal Petitclerc, Canadas Chef de Mission. "While we have had a small advance team on site for over a week, having athletes now living in the Village has made it come alive. Everything is operational and working very well, the accreditation centre, the dining hall, the transport mall and all amenities. "Glasgow 2014 is ready -- as are the Commonwealths best athletes who are starting to gather for these great Games." Canada is sending its largest-ever delegation to a Commonwealth Games not on home soil with 265 athletes competing in 16 out of 17 sports at Glasgow. Netball is the only sport Canadians will not compete in. Trapshooter Susan Nattrass, who will be Canadas flagbearer at the Opening Ceremony on July 23, is the most experienced athlete in the delegation. The 63-year-old, who lives in Edmonton, is competing in her fifth Games and has won three silver medals and five bronze at previous competitions. Montreals Metodi Igorov, Nattrasss teammate on the shooting team, will also be competing in his fifth Commonwealth Games. "After years of preparation, it is hard to believe that we are now only one week away from the Opening Ceremony," said Scott Stevenson, Commonwealth Games Canadas Director of Sport. "Canada has fielded a very strong team for these 2014 Games, and we are targeting a top three finish amongst all nations competing here. This Team truly represents sporting excellence at its best."

Darren Woodson Jersey . -- Cincinnati Reds closer Aroldis Chapman is undergoing surgery to repair a broken bone above his left eye but has no other serious injuries after being hit in the face by a line drive in a spring training game.DENVER - The first big league signing of Jeff Bridichs tenure as general manager of the Colorado Rockies was far more sensible than splashy.The Rockies needed a versatile infielder, and so they added Daniel Descalso with a $3.6 million, two-year contract Tuesday.It appears to be a sound investment for a team thats trying to rebound from a 96-loss season, especially after Colorado dealt infielder Josh Rutledge to the Los Angeles Angels last week.Bridich has taken a methodical approach so far, cautiously listening to sales pitches from other teams and carefully weighing the benefits of adding big names.Hes resisted the temptation to shake up this roster, willing to believe that a healthy Troy Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonzalez can do more for getting this team back on track than a blockbuster deal.It would be easy for somebody in my shoes, a brand new GM, a young GM, to want to come in and make a splash, do something sexy, Bridich said in a teleconference call. I fought that urge, but Im not going to say it wasnt there.Weve been close-ish to a few things. But it hasnt happened, hasnt worked out. Were not going to panic. ... We have to remember the type of talent that we have here.Talent thats struggled to stay on the field. The Rockies lost Tulowitzki (hip) and Carlos Gonzalez (knee) to season-ending injuries and watched three different starting pitchers sidelined by broken hands.Granted, it was 90-plus losses, but there was a lot to that, said Bridich, who took over when the Rockies made changes to the front office. Were still trying to address and strengthen some of the weaker areas.Bridich said the signing of the 28-year-old Descalso wasnt so much a direct response to sending Rutledge to the Angels for righty Jairo Diaz. The Rockies actually had their eye on Descalso since he became a free agent when St. Louis failed to offer a contract by the Dec. 2 deadline.They like his versatility — he started 11 games at second base, nine at short, seven at the hot corner and thhree more at first base last season.dddddddddddd He even recorded an out on the mound in a lopsided loss to the Chicago Cubs on May 12.Bridich kidded that Descalso might even be asked to play some outfield or possibly catch.Hes game for whatever.Im anticipating filling a variety of different roles, bouncing around the infield and doing whatever I can to help the team win on a given night, if thats playing third, second, short, first, wherever they ask me to play, said Descalso, who will make $1.5 million next year and $2.1 million in 2016. Thats kind of the outlook I have going into this thing.There was a time not too long ago when Descalsos name was bantered around in trade rumours involving Tulowitzki and the Cardinals. He didnt pay attention.I was not aware if my name was in those rumours at all, said Descalso, who was a member of the Cardinals 2011 World Series championship team. I always thought Denver would be a great place to play. Looking at the roster in the brief time Ive looked it over, these guys over here have a lot of talent. If we keep everybody on the field, I like our chances of competing and winning ball games.Descalso can earn up to $500,000 annually in performance bonuses based on plate appearances: $50,000 for 250, $100,000 for 300, $150,000 for 350 and $200,000 for 400. He hit .242 with 10 RBIs in 104 games last season.Hes built a reputation in this game as a tough, smart player, manager Walt Weiss said. We talk about those things all the time. Were striving to get better and better in those areas, and hes going to add to that.Next on the docket for Bridich is finding more bullpen help after losing reliever Matt Belisle to the Cardinals through free agency. That and another starter or two.The process were trying to build here, that takes time, Bridich said. That doesnt happen overnight. If you dont take that time, youre going to end up making bad decisions.___AP Sports Writer Ronald Blum in New York contributed to this report. ' ' '
