NY Yankees

Second baseman Brian Roberts is retiring, according to The Baltimore Sun. The 37-year-old Roberts spent 13 of his 14 Major League seasons with the Orioles and played his last year with the Yankees.
As the Yankees' professional scouting meetings wrap up this week at Yankee Stadium, the club has started its search for a new hitting coach, setting up interviews with former big leaguers Chili Davis and Dave Magadan about the vacancy.
Aaron Judge didn't have the big season the Tigers' Steven Moya had in '14, but MLB.com's Jim Callis says the Yankees prospect has a brighter future in the big leagues
Yankees first-base prospect Greg Bird has raised eyebrows with his left-handed power, earning the team's Minor League Player of the Year honor in 2013 and posting strong numbers in '14.
The Yankees started meetings with their professional scouts on Monday in New York, with general manager Brian Cashman's staff entering the beginning stages of outlining what must be done to get the team back to the postseason in 2015.
Yankees outfield prospect Aaron Judge provided a two-run double and scored in an eighth-inning rally as Scottsdale topped Glendale on Friday in Arizona Fall League action.
Brian Cashman said that the Yankees will actively seek contingency plans in the event that Rodriguez is not able to play his position. In addition to time as a designated hitter, manager Joe Girardi has spoken to Rodriguez about the possibility of playing some first base.
The Yankees shook up their coaching staff on Friday, letting go of hitting coach Kevin Long and first-base coach Mick Kelleher.
The offseason is officially underway for the Yankees, who checked off an important piece of business on Friday by finalizing a three-year contract extension with Brian Cashman, who will continue to serve as the club's senior vice president and general manager.
The Yankees plan to be in the market for a shortstop this offseason, and their list of options diminished by one on Thursday as J.J. Hardy and the Orioles reached an agreement on a three-year contract extension.
Thieves stole an undisclosed number of Hall of Famer Yogi Berra's World Series rings and two of his MVP plaques from the Yogi Berra Museum and Learning Center in Little Falls, N.J.
The Yankees are set to head into a campaign without an official captain for the first time since 2003, and manager Joe Girardi will be looking to several key veterans -- including CC Sabathia, Brian McCann and Carlos Beltran -- to fill the void left by Jeter's retirement.
With Archie Bradley and Tyler Glasnow on the mound as Salt River hosted Scottsdale on Opening Day in the Arizona Fall League, the final game of the day was expected to be a pitchers' duel. But after early exits for both power pitchers, both of whom are the top prospect in their organizations, power bats took over the game Tuesday. Led by Yankees prospects Greg Bird and Tyler Austin, Scottsdale outslugged Salt River, 7-4.
Over its 23-year history, the Arizona Fall League has developed a reputation as a finishing school for baseball's top prospects. This year, once again, many of the game's best young players will gather in the desert, hoping to prove themselves in the same league that helped catapult Derek Jeter, Dustin Pedroia and Mike Trout to stardom.
Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira is on the board of directors for Harlem RBI, and he participated in a charity tournament at Liberty National Golf Course on Monday after discussing his recent career and his plan for the offseason.
Derek Jeter lashed a game-winning single to say goodbye to Yankee Stadium, then waved his batting helmet to acknowledge career hit No. 3,465 three days later at Fenway Park, descending the dugout steps and entering his post-baseball life. It was an eventful week for the former Yankees captain, who is wasting no time getting started on the next chapters.
Yankees pitcher Brandon McCarthy on Thursday night became the first active Major League Baseball player to join Athlete Ally's group of 101 athletes as an "ally" to support LGBT athletes, and his first action in that capacity was to present Hall of Famer Yogi Berra with one of the first Athlete Ally Action Awards at the inaugural fundraiser dinner in Manhattan.
Eric Jagielo missed two months of his first full pro season with a strained oblique, so the Yankees planned to send him to the Arizona Fall League to make up for some lost at-bats. But that plan was scuttled when the third baseman was hit in the face by a pitch in an instructional league game Sunday.
Ichiro Suzuki just finished his 14th Major League season only 156 hits shy of the cherished 3,000-hit mark. Even though he wants to play baseball again next year, he's not sure what big league team is going to give him the opportunity.
Yankees managing general partner Hal Steinbrenner apologized to fans for his team not making the playoffs for a second consecutive season and confirmed that the organization is working on a new contract with general manager Brian Cashman.
Carlos Beltran underwent surgery to remove loose pieces and a bone spur from his troublesome right elbow on Tuesday at New York-Presbyterian Hospital, and the Yankees outfielder is expected to be ready for Spring Training.
Four-fifths of the Yankees' rotation went down with injuries, and some of the bats they planned to rely on, like Carlos Beltran and Mark Teixeira, also dealt with lingering issues. Derek Jeter provided plenty of memorable moments in his farewell season, but the Yankees did not fulfill their ultimate goal with a postseason berth.
Derek Jeter's final farewell to baseball consumed the Yankees' last weekend of play, delaying all the usual emotions that come with ending a season before October. Speaking to reporters from his usual perch at Yankee Stadium on Monday, manager Joe Girardi -- still recovering from the excitement of the Captain's exit -- delivered a dose of reality while looking toward a new era in Yankees history.
The last two times that the Yankees finished the regular season without the gates opening for a playoff game, they adhered to what can be called the Steinbrenner playbook: open the checkbooks and chase the biggest fish in free agency, stealing the headlines for the winter.
In one of several thoughtful moments over the past several days, Derek Jeter reflected on his storied career and noted that though he shared the field with many athletes who possessed more talent, he believes that no one ever gave more of an effort. With that in mind, Jeter's season-long goodbye ended in fitting fashion on Sunday afternoon, running hard down the first-base line to notch the 3,465th hit of his career. He signaled for a pinch-runner and waved his batting helmet as he left the field, exiting a game that the Yankees went on to win, 9-5.
Derek Jeter said goodbye the way we always figured he might. That is, he did his job. Isn't that the thing that defined him for 20 seasons? When he takes a deep breath and reflects on all of it, he's sure to look back and take pride in always being part of a great whole, a team.
On the last afternoon of his big league career, Derek Jeter received one more sendoff from the Red Sox and several fellow captains of the Boston sports scene, paying their "RE2PECT" prior to the last game of the regular season.
It ended on a high chopper to the left side of the infield, and Derek Jeter ran hard down the first-base line, just as he has done countless times before. He reached safely, without a throw, and then motioned to the dugout that it was time to go. The Yankees' captain legged out an RBI infield single in his final at-bat on Sunday afternoon in the third inning. Jeter completes his career with 3,465 hits, sixth all time, and with a lifetime batting average of .310.

NY Mets

While shortstop has been an unsettled spot in the Mets' lineup in recent years, the club is amassing remarkable depth at the position in the Minor Leagues.
Construction is underway to move portions of Citi Field's outfield fence closer to home plate for the second time in three years. The Mets on Wednesday released pictures of their initial stages of fence reconstruction, revealing a modified wall in right-center field.
Matt den Dekker's offensive contribution will be important to him and the Mets going forward, but his outstanding Gold Glove Award-caliber defense and above-average speed can be the most useful tools on a roster balanced with outfielders who hit for more power.
Matt Reynolds, the Mets' No. 20 prospect, finished the game 3-for-5 with a double and two runs to go with his homer. After starting the Arizona Fall League 0-for-7, the 23-year old shortstop said he has started to feel better.
Over its 23-year history, the Arizona Fall League has developed a reputation as a finishing school for baseball's top prospects. This year, once again, many of the game's best young players will gather in the desert, hoping to prove themselves in the same league that helped catapult Derek Jeter, Dustin Pedroia and Mike Trout to stardom.
The 2015 Ford C. Frick Award finalists are Richie Ashburn, Billy Berroa, Rene Cardenas, Dizzy Dean, Dick Enberg, Ernie Johnson Sr., Ralph Kiner, Ned Martin, Joe Nuxhall and Jack Quinlan. The award is presented annually "for excellence in baseball broadcasting" by the Hall of Fame.
Disgruntled enough with the state of their offense to change hitting coaches in May, the Mets are once again undergoing a coaching shakeup. The team announced Thursday that it does not plan to invite replacement hitting coach Lamar Johnson or assistant Luis Natera back for 2015, though it will offer both men positions within the Minor League system.
Mets catcher Travis d'Arnaud on Wednesday underwent successful surgery to remove a bone chip that broke off in his right elbow. He anticipates an approximately one-month recovery, putting him on track to be ready well before Opening Day in 2015.
As perhaps a prelude to a National League Rookie of the Year Award, Mets starter Jacob deGrom on Tuesday was named the NL's Rookie of the Month for September.
The Mets have no grand plans to change much over the winter. When pitchers and catchers report to Port St. Lucie, Fla., four and a half months from now, the roster will not look markedly different from the one that populated Citi Field last Sunday. But the Mets have reason to believe that with even modest improvements, they can be significantly better.

SU Athletics

Syracuse executed in every phase of the match Sunday afternoon to defeat the Demon Deacons, 3-0. Salkute led the Orange (8-12, 1-7 ACC) attack to its best hitting percentage of ACC play to down the Demon Deacons (12-9, 2-5 ACC).

It took every last second, but the Orange were able to salvage a tie with UConn on Sunday, thanks to the last-second heroics of Jessica Sibley and 'Cuse's extra skater unit.

The Syracuse University women's rowing team began its fall season at the 50th Annual Head of the Charles, the world's largest two-day regatta, this weekend. The Orange recorded a third-place finish in the women's championship fours race and was the top collegiate boat in the event.

Syracuse scored 30 unanswered points and defeated Wake Forest, 30-7, in its first road conference game of the season. AJ Long threw for 171 yards and rushed for a touchdown to become the first SU true freshman quarterback to lead the Orange to victory in his first game as a starter.

The Syracuse women's soccer team held No. 13 Notre Dame scoreless for more than 65 minutes of play, but ultimately suffered a 2-0 loss on Saturday night at the SU Soccer Stadium. Junior midfielder Cari Roccaro tallied the game-winning goal for Notre Dame in the 69th minute of play.  

Senior forward Allie LaCombe scored a pair of goals in the Orange's 3-3 tie with Providence on Saturday.

The Syracuse men's and women's teams officially made their entrances into the Carrier Dome for the first time in 2014-15 at Orange Madness on Friday night.
