NY Yankees

The Blue Jays widened their lead for the top spot in the American League Wild Card race as Jose Bautista's three-run home run in the eighth inning broke a scoreles tie in Toronto's 3-0 win over the Yankees on Saturday at Rogers Centre.
With the Yankees looking to improve their standing in the American League Wild Card race, CC Sabathia gave his club everything it could ask for, and more, throwing seven sparkling innings of four-hit shutout ball to keep a sold-out Rogers Centre crowd as quiet as possible in the Yankees' 3-0 loss to the Blue Jays on Saturday.
Left-handed starter Jordan Montgomery had arguably the best 2016 season of any Yankees pitching prospect.
Is Gary Sanchez the year's Best Rookie? Vote now to help Sanchez win big in the 2016 Esurance MLB Awards, the baseball industry's ultimate honors.
Both the Blue Jays and Yankees continue to battle in the chase for an American League Wild Card spot as the two teams will play the third game of their four-game series on Sunday afternoon at Rogers Centre.
Former New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter returned to the field at the Al Oerter Recreation Center in Queens on Saturday morning to the utter delight of 100 children from all five boroughs of New York.
Voting is underway through Nov. 11 at MLB.com/awards to help decide who wins Best Rookie regardless of league affiliation, and all five of your candidates are currently playing key roles in pennant races: Tigers right-hander Michael Fulmer, Indians center fielder Tyler Naquin, Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez, Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager and Nationals center fielder Trea Turner.

The Yankees have been one of the Cinderella stories in the season's second half, but a costly September slide has been headlined by a scuffling offense, which struggled again on Friday evening at Rogers Centre.
After Francisco Liriano's six shutout innings preserved a narrow lead, the Blue Jays' previously struggling offense erupted for four runs in the seventh and two more in the eighth en route to a 9-0 win over the Yankees on Friday night at Rogers Centre.
Yankees manager Joe Girardi said he's not expecting second baseman Starlin Castro to return to the lineup during New York's four-game weekend series in Toronto.
The Yanks had a few laughs as newcomers like Gary Sanchez, Tyler Austin and Luis Cessa curiously eyed the onesies they would be wearing through Canadian customs. Thursday's 2-0 loss to the Rays removed some of the fun, but a loose attitude can only help in the face of what manager Joe Girardi called "the biggest series of the year."
Blake Snell hurled five effective innings and Corey Dickerson homered, helping the Rays put another dent in the Yankees' postseason hopes with a 2-0 victory on Thursday night at Tropicana Field. Brad Miller drove in the game's first run to help Tampa Bay take the finale of this three-game series with New York, which opened the day 2 1/2 games back -- with four teams to jump -- in the chase for the second American League Wild Card spot.
The Yankees announced before Thursday's 2-0 loss to the Rays that they will skip Masahiro Tanaka's next scheduled start after the American League's ERA leader underwent an MRI exam that revealed a small flexor mass strain in his right forearm.
The Yankees completed a Minor League deal on Thursday, trading veteran left-hander Phil Coke to the Pirates for cash considerations.
Gary Sanchez continued a sensational and historic start to his Major League career on Wednesday, homering twice and driving in five runs to lead the Yankees to an 11-5 victory over the Rays at Tropicana Field.
The Yankees limped out of Fenway Park late Sunday night, stunned in four games by the streaking Red Sox, and with three of their key players hurt.
Even now, three years after his retirement from baseball, it's hard not to think of Mariano Rivera, both in New York and around the Major Leagues.
For the second time in as many nights, the Rays opted to pitch to Gary Sanchez with first base open. The Yankees' rookie sensation responded with the same result: a long three-run homer.
The thought of sitting out for the rest of the year crossed Billy Butler's mind as the highway miles rolled past last week, traveling to his in-law's home in Idaho Falls, Idaho. Without regular at-bats under his belt, the 10-year veteran was not sure if he was ready to help a team.
8 insane facts to put Sanchez's start in perspective
Joe Torre remembers that morning as vividly as every other American. He was manager of the Yankees, and his club had been rained out the day before.
Gary Sanchez's increasingly convincing candidacy for the American League Rookie of the Year Award kept the Yankees' postseason dream alive for another day. Sanchez slugged a three-run homer off Brad Boxberger in the seventh inning, lifting the Yankees to a 5-3 victory over the Rays on Tuesday at Tropicana Field.
By the time the Yankees grabbed the lead in the seventh inning on Tuesday, Michael Pineda had found a spot on a couch in the visiting clubhouse at Tropicana Field, cooling down from an 11-strikeout performance that was his best in some time.
Surely, there were pitchers in 1927 who could not wait to test their skills against Babe Ruth, who went to battle against Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris in 1961, or who grumbled on a nightly basis when their club was handing out intentional walks to Barry Bonds in 2001.
Scranton/Wilkes-Barre won plenty of games this season, but it was the 98th victory that officially gave them its first Triple-A National Championship.
Rob Refsnyder has seen the word "overachieve" as an embodiment of the drive for success that has allowed him to reach the Major Leagues with the Yankees. As a result of his charitable outreach in the Tampa Bay area, it now means much more.
Gary Sanchez may not know much about Willie McCovey. But between now and November, he's sure to learn a lot.
The Yankees will honor retiring first baseman Mark Teixeira before their Oct. 2 regular-season finale against the Orioles at Yankee Stadium.
Does Gary Sanchez have a legitimate chance of winning the American League Rookie of the Year Award? Bryan Hoch answers this question and more in the latest Yankees Inbox.
The Yankees found ways to drop a quartet of contests to the Red Sox, flushing leads in three of the games, including Sunday night's 5-4 loss. This time, after another Gary Sanchez homer helped New York build a 4-0 lead, the recipe was the combination of Hanley Ramirez's red-hot bat and a key CC Sabathia throwing error.
Hanley Ramirez's latest power surge propelled the Red Sox to a feat they last accomplished in 1990 -- a four-game sweep of the Yankees.
Donovan Solano said that he watched with excitement when Triple-A teammates Gary Sanchez, Aaron Judge and Tyler Austin got called up for extended big league chances, and the 28-year-old infielder never gave up hope that his call would come. It did on Sunday, in the wake of an injury to Yankees second baseman Starlin Castro.
It took several big hits for the Red Sox to climb back from an early deficit, but all they needed was a wild pitch to finally take the lead in Saturday's 6-5 victory over the Yankees at Fenway Park.
The play looked like a routine dive back into first base, something that Mason Williams had done countless times during his professional career. His initial reaction was to shrug it off and assume that two days of rest would be enough to get him back in the lineup.
Just a week has passed since the Yankees' seven-game winning streak resuscitated dreams of playoff baseball in the Bronx, but 48 hours at Fenway Park have sounded an alarm that time is running out on this long shot.

NY Mets

Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard will not make his scheduled start Saturday due to strep throat. Left-hander Sean Gilmartin will start in his place.
Mets infielder Wilmer Flores is concerned he may not play again this season due to the wrist injury that has already cost him most of September.
Mets manager Terry Collins may grumble at the notion of baseball's expanded rosters in September. But rules are rules, and Collins is doing his best to exploit them, hoping this everyone-plays brand of September baseball will help his club reach October.
Michael Conforto's bat helped push the Mets into the postseason and on to their unlikely World Series run in 2015. One year later, his team is hoping he can push them there again.
For all the numbers of notoriety in the increasingly data-driven sport of baseball, the one still paramount in the 162-game schedule is winning percentage. But what happens when even that supreme stat can't decide things?
No sooner had Terry Collins opted to take his starting pitcher, Gabriel Ynoa, out of the Mets' 10-5 win over the Phillies on Friday than he began weaving a bullpen thread through his mind.
Ender Inciarte was safely in Miami with the Braves. No one was going to take this win away from the Mets, who needed it so badly. They had to work all night and they had to come back three times, but when it was all over Asdrubal Cabrera's three-run home run off Edubray Ramos in the 11th inning gave them a dramatic 9-8 win over the Phillies Thursday night at Citi Field.
The Mets said they had put the disappointment of Wednesday behind them. "Everything that happened yesterday and the day before is in the past," Asdrubal Cabrera said Thursday night. Sure it is. Easy to say now, because of what Cabrera did in the 11th inning against the Phillies. His three-run home run off Phillies reliever Edubray Ramos and the resulting 9-8 Mets win didn't erase what happened a day before, but it sure did change the story at Citi Field.
On Thursday, the Statcast™ lab introduced barrels, a new metric that combines exit velocity and launch angle to identify the best contact. The Mets then went out and provided two good examples.
