INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Many prospects use the NFL scouting combine as a chance to clear their good name Johnathan Abram Jersey , rectifying misconceptions about their game or skillset or any misperceptions about their worth ethic or character.Clemson edge rusher Clelin Ferrell is using this chance to correct mispronunciations of his name.It has a long E sound (pronounced CLEE-lihn) as in Cleveland without the v and the d.So, whenever anyone addressed him at the combine as Cleh-lihn with a short vowel, he made a point to correct them in a friendly way.“Not trying to be a (jerk), but I take a lot of pride in it,” said Ferrell. “I want to kind of change the narrative. I get it, it is spelled like Clelin with a lowercase e, but hopefully if I keep playing well, more people will really learn it and I won’t have to do that anymore.”People garble his name all the time, and he never lets it slide, he said, “just in case we meet again and we become really good friends Maxx Crosby Jersey , I just tell them right off the bat how to pronounce it.”Ferrell is the youngest of nine children. His father, who died when he was 13, was named Clevester, and he has a brother named Clevester Jr., another named Clevon and a sister named Cleta.All with a lone but long E.“I don’t know if this is true or not, but my sister Cleta told me that my dad’s great uncle, his name was Cleofis and they were considering naming me Cleofis,” Ferrell said. “So, thank God they didn’t name me that.”Ferrell might very well hear his name called in the first round of the NFL draft in Nashville on April 25, and he certainly hopes he won’t have to go on stage and correct commissioner Roger Goodell.Ferrell teamed up with Austin Bryant, Dexter Lawrence Foster Moreau Jersey , and Christian Wilkins to form one of the best D-lines in college football history, and Ferrell said he believes being surrounded by such talent will smooth his adjustment to the NFL.“There’s not a lot of plays to go around out there when you’re playing with guys like that, so it really taught me the mentality of not taking any plays off, learning to really push and fight every play,” Ferrell said.A year after five quarterbacks were selected in the first round of the draft, led by No. 1 overall pick Baker Mayfield, it’s the guys rushing the passer from the edge and pushing the pocket from the interior who are all the rage in this year’s draft class .“There’s a lot of great players here, a lot of great players on the defensive line. For me, I’m just happy to be considered one of them,” Ferrell said.Asked if he thinks he can have an immediate impact like Joey Bosa or Bradley Chubb did as rookies, Ferrell said Joey Bosa Jersey , “I’m not going to say I’m going to come in and tear the league up, but I know what type of player I can become. … I’m going to compete, work hard and try to earn the respect of my team and try to bring a championship wherever I go play.”That would certainly make him a household name.Before he walked away from the podium, somebody asked him about his go-to pass rush move on third-and-long.“It’s CLEE-lihn, by the way,” Ferrell corrected. “You said Cleh-lihn.”
A look at what’s happening around the majors Wednesday:


The Nationals could use a spark before the July 4 fireworks go off in D.C. Washington is at risk of falling below .500 for the first time since May 2 as it continues a series against Boston at 11 a.m. EDT. The Red Sox thumped the Nationals 11-4 on Tuesday, giving Washington its fourth straight loss and 16th in 21 games to fall to 42-42. That slide has the preseason NL East favorites chasing the Braves and Phillies in the division. Erick Fedde (1-3, 6.00) tries to stop Washington’s skid against Boston left-hander Eduardo Rodriguez (9-3, 4.11).


Shohei Ohtani is back from the disabled list, albeit without full use of his electric right arm. The Japanese two-way sensation has been cleared to hit and was in the Angels’ lineup as a designated hitter Tuesday night, but he won’t be pitching anytime soon due to a Grade 2 sprain of his ulnar collateral ligament suffered more than three weeks ago. Ohtani has received stem cell therapy and a platelet-rich plasma injection on his right elbow Tony Pollard Jersey , and it’s unclear if he’ll be able to return to the mound this year. For now, Los Angeles welcomes him as a hitter. He entered Tuesday batting .289 with a .907 OPS and six homers in 114 at-bats.


Gerrit Cole (9-2) will pitch on regular rest for the Astros after a slight tweak to their rotation. Lance McCullers Jr. was initially scheduled to start at Texas, but Cole will pitch instead. Justin Verlander (9-4) will follow Thursday at home against the White Sox and McCullers goes Friday. Manager A.J. Hinch said the switch keeps Cole and Verlander pitching every fifth day, and provides extra rest for McCullers (9-3) and Charlie Morton (10-2). The reset rotation means likely All-Star selection Verlander is scheduled for the final game before the break. ”This is always going to be the priority,” said Hinch, the All-Star manager who then won’t have Verlander available to pitch for the AL team on July 17 in Washington D.C.


Trevor Bauer tries to carry over an outstanding June when the Indians play at Kansas City. Bauer (7-6, 2.45) was 3-3 with a 2.18 ERA last month, striking out 62 batters in 41 1/3 innings. He gets probably his easiest test of the year against the Royals, who scored a major league-low 58 runs in June – the second-lowest output was Tampa Bay at 87.
