The Alex Smith era has begun in Washington as the Redskins completed their trade for the veteran quarterback.

Smith joined the Redskins from the Kansas City Chiefs in exchange for a third-round pick and cornerback Kendall Fuller. The deal and Smith’s subsequent four-year contract extension were agreed to in February but couldn’t become official until Wednesday’s start of the new league year.

”I just wanted to say how excited and happy I am to be part of the Redskins team George Kittle Jersey ,” Smith said in a video posted on Washington’s Twitter account. ”Can’t wait to build something great together.”

Smith replaces Kirk Cousins as the Redskins’ No. 1 quarterback. Cousins spent the past three seasons as Washington’s starter and played the past two on the franchise tag. He is being courted by the Minnesota Vikings.

”I have a tremendous amount of respect for Alex and what he was able to accomplish with us these past five seasons,” Chiefs coach Andy Reid said. ”He put every ounce of energy into making our football team better and I appreciate his leadership and how he came to work with the right attitude every day.”

Smith, who turns 34 in May, led the Chiefs to four playoff appearances in the past five years, throwing for 102 touchdowns and 33 interceptions. He carries a $17 million salary-cap hit for 2018.

The Redskins are expected to introduce Smith at a news conference Thursday with senior vice president of player personnel Doug Williams and coach Jay Gruden. Less than 90 minutes after the trade was official, No. 11 Smith jerseys were seen at Redskins stores in the D.C. area.

At the scouting combine in Indianapolis, Gruden said it was time to move on from Cousins and find some continuity at quarterback. Cousins wrote a farewell ode to the Redskins on his website, thanking owner Dan Snyder, team president Bruce Allen, Gruden and former coach Mike Shanahan, among others.

”Just like you never fully leave your hometown – you never fully leave your first NFL team, especially after six seasons Blake Martinez Jersey ,” Cousins wrote. ”My family and I will always have a piece of Washington deep in our hearts. I arrived as a single, 23-year-old from the Midwest – with a lot to learn and prove. I now leave as a husband of four years to my wife, Julie, and a father to my son, Cooper – but still with lots to learn and prove.”

With a flight to catch, Michael Brantley quickly dressed and stuffed some batting gloves, cleats and other gear into a red-white-and-blue duffel bag.

Brantley’s headed to the All-Star Game. Before leaving, he again showed why he’s going.

Brantley homered leading off the eighth inning, and the Cleveland Indians headed into the break with a 5-2 win over the New York Yankees on Sunday to split the four-game series between teams that could see each other in October.

One of six Indians selected to play Tuesday in Washington, Brantley broke a 2-2 tie by belting a pitch from Chad Green (5-2) into the seats in right for his 12th homer – and 17th game-tying or go-ahead RBI this season.

”I got a pitch out over the plate, put a good swing on it and was lucky to give us the lead,” Brantley said. ”At the same time Drew Kaser Jersey , the guys behind me did a great job putting quality at-bats together and scoring an extra couple of runs. It was nice.”

Following Brantley’s shot, the Indians added two insurance runs in the inning when Jose Ramirez dashed home on a sacrifice fly by Yan Gomes and Green uncorked a wild pitch.

Neil Walker homered for the Yankees, who are 29 games over .500 but trail the scorching Boston Red Sox by 4 1/2 games in the AL East.

”There’s nothing we can do about it,” Yankees manager Aaron Boone said. ”We’ve got the Mets. That’s our next up. Hopefully we get some cooperation standings-wise, but you’ll drive yourself crazy in July trying to keep track of that.”

Carlos Carrasco (11-5) earned his first win in relief since July 19, 2014. The right-hander was available after pitching only five innings in Wednesday night’s 19-4 blowout of Cincinnati.

Cody Allen struck out two in the ninth and earned his 20th save in 21 opportunities, but Cleveland’s win ended with the Indians holding their breath after Edwin Encarnacion was hit in the eighth.

Cleveland’s cleanup hitter homered in the fourth, but had to leave after being hit by a pitch on the right hand. Though it initially appeared Encarnacion might be badly hurt, Terry Francona said the slugger is OK.

”He got the meat of the hand fortunately, and he checked out fine,” he said. ”That was a big sigh of relief. That looked like it whacked him pretty good.”

Aaron Judge struck out three times against All-Star Trevor Bauer, and Giancarlo Stanton fanned twice for New York.

Battling the heat early on Dave Casper Jersey , Bauer held the power-packed Bronx Bombers in check for seven innings, limiting them to two runs and seven hits. The right-hander will not pitch on Tuesday at Nationals Park unless the game goes to extra innings and Houston manager A.J. Hinch runs out of arms.

”Yeah, I’d love to be on the mound Tuesday,” Bauer said ”Who knows? It’s not my decision where I pitch or not. I’m probably the only person in baseball rooting for extra innings in the All-Star Game.”

New York’s Masahiro Tanaka was just as good, allowing two runs and six hits in his second start since coming off the disabled list. He’s unbeaten in his last 11 starts stretching back to April 17.

Tanaka coasted through three innings before Encarnacion tied it 2-2 in the fourth with home run No. 22.

”Edwin’s hit was huge,” Francona said. ”To beat Tanaka, to be competitive against him, you got to be so disciplined and that split is such a good pitch and we were kind of having a hard time. And then when Edwin tied it with one swing, you’re like, `OK, at least we’re not losing.’ That was a huge hit for us.”


Ramirez is just the fifth player in history with at least 25 homers and 20 steals before the All-Star break, joining Bobby Bonds (1973) Brandon Parker Jersey , Eric Davis (1987), Alex Rodriguez (1998) and Alfonso Soriano (2006).


Boone didn’t have any say in his plans for the All-Star break.

”I heard I’m going to Six Flags,” he said, referring to the amusement park. Boone is looking forward to being with his family and ”doing a little summer time.”

Francona has a new home in Tucson, Arizona, which needs carpet and other necessities before he moves in after the season. Beyond some decorating, he’s anxious for some down time.

”I can spend three days just swimming and laying in the sun,” he said. “And I can use it. I’m wiped out.”


Yankees: C Gary Sanchez homered for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and played seven innings in the first game of his rehab stint. Sanchez has been out since June 25 with a strained right groin.

Indians: LHP Andrew Miller is pitching at Triple-A Columbus on Tuesday. The former All-Star has been out with inflammation in his right knee, but he’s progressed to the point where he can pitch in games.


Yankees: Open a three-game series at home with the Mets on Friday.

Indians: Start the season’s second half Friday at Texas.
