Suddenly, the Yankees have hope. Actually, lots of it. That's what a month of solid baseball has gotten them. Isn't that all any team asks for at this time of the year? Considering where they were just a few weeks ago, the Yankees will happily take it.
Alex Rodriguez walked into the visitor's clubhouse at Minute Maid Park on Wednesday afternoon wearing a nice dress shirt and jeans. He strolled over to his locker before changing into a midnight navy shirt and green shorts.
Jake Odorizzi is really looking forward to Monday, when he'll no longer have to answer questions about his spot on the trade block ahead of the non-waiver Deadline. But before that, he's scheduled to start for the Rays on Friday when they host Ivan Nova and the Yankees at Tropicana Field.
Andrew Miller has mastered the strike zone in a way that we haven't seen before. Against him, hitters watch more strikes go by and chase more balls than nearly anyone else. It's basically the perfect formula, and it's why he's so successful.
CC Sabathia won for the first time in more than a month by holding the Astros to two runs -- on solo homers by Marwin Gonzalez and Evan Gattis -- in seven innings to lead the Yankees to their eighth win in 10 games, 6-3, on Tuesday night at Minute Maid Park.
The way CC Sabathia breaks it down, his stuff didn't feel drastically different than it had been in his last six starts. The end result was, however, as the big left-hander picked up his first victory since June 16 in the Yankees' 6-3 win over the Astros at Minute Maid Park.
The shock of being traded by the only organization he had known was dissipating, and Adam Warren wanted to embrace a new beginning. The right-hander decided that a little spring cleaning might help, and so he emptied his drawers of anything with the word "Yankees" on it.
The Yankees made it clear that it wouldn't be cheap to pry Aroldis Chapman and his high-octane fastball from their grip, but when the Cubs agreed late on Sunday to part with top prospect Gleyber Torres, general manager Brian Cashman knew it was time to strike a deal.
Alex Rodriguez's role with the Yankees may never have seemed more diminished than it does at this moment, but the designated hitter says that he is optimistic that he has identified a flaw in his swing, even huddling with the team's analytics department to go over his recent output.
The Yankees started the season knowing that they wouldn't have Aroldis Chapman's services for the first two months, and even with the closer now on his way to finish the year with the Cubs, general manager Brian Cashman wants his team to go back to that original mindset.
4-1-5 may be the most prominent area code in San Francisco, but it was the Yankees who used those numbers to answer the call and disconnect a budding Giants rally in their 5-2 victory on Sunday at Yankee Stadium.
Carlos Beltran and Mark Teixeira homered to support Nathan Eovaldi, who threw a season-high 118 pitches to lead the Yankees to a 5-2 victory over the Giants on Sunday at Yankee Stadium, securing a winning homestand for the club as it attempts to block out swirling trade speculation.
Whether it's luck, good timing or things finally starting click, perhaps the most pivotal stretch of the Yankees' season thus far just coincided with perhaps the team's best string of pitching performances.
No Major League team has ever finished undefeated, nor has any team ever been expected to. But that expectation has almost fallen upon the shoulders of this season's Yankees, who, after losing, 2-1, to the Giants in 12 innings Saturday, fell to 4 1/2 games back of the second American League Wild Card spot with the Aug. 1 non-waiver Trade Deadline now just eight days away.
The Yankees have made their formula for success in 2016 clear: Get the starter through six innings with a lead, then give the game over to the bullpen. But it might be time to make a slight amendment to the formula. That strategy is well and good, but there might be a shortcut. Just get Starlin Castro a hit.
The Giants' struggles and the Yankees' surge both continued Friday night as San Francisco shortstop Brandon Crawford committed an eighth-inning throwing error that helped New York generate the tiebreaking run in a 3-2 victory. It was San Francisco's season-high sixth consecutive loss.
For most of the 2016 season, Carlos Beltran's bat has been the lone saving grace for the Yankees' offense. But in the Yankees' 3-2 win over the Giants on Friday night, it wasn't Beltran's bat that led the Yankees to victory. It was his glove.
The Yankees claimed a 3-2 win in Friday's series opener vs. the Giants, but not before a pair of rare slipups from Dellin Betances and Andrew Miller, in the seventh and eighth, respectively, left the game's outcome in jeopardy.
CC Sabathia loves to hit. He doesn't do it anymore because of his age and injury history, but he said he never thought of it as a chore. Instead, he always liked taking batting practice just for the fun of it. Ivan Nova, on the other hand, is the kind of guy who's glad he plays for an AL club.
Chris Tillman worked seven strong innings, J.J. Hardy and Jonathan Schoop each drove in a pair of runs and the Orioles snapped their four-game losing streak with a 4-1 victory over the Yankees on Thursday afternoon at Yankee Stadium.
Sticking with CC Sabathia against the top of the Orioles' order in the seventh inning was an easy gamble for Joe Girardi, who decided to trust the big left-hander with the game on the line. Even though it didn't work out, the Yankees manager doesn't believe it was the wrong call.
After being scratched from the starting lineup Wednesday for personal reasons, Yankees third baseman Chase Headley returned to Thursday, pinch-hitting in the eighth inning of the team's 4-1 loss to Baltimore.
It's been a stellar month for Marlins No. 24 prospect Jeff Brigham. The 24-year-old righty turned in yet another impressive performance Thursday, tossing seven scoreless innings and striking out a season-best 10 batters.
Michael Pineda struck out eight over six electric innings and Mark Teixeira homered in his return to the lineup, helping the Yankees to their fourth consecutive victory on Wednesday, a 5-0 decision over the Orioles at Yankee Stadium. Baltimore has lost four straight games.
There are two sides of Masahiro Tanaka, which form a complete person who is genuinely beloved by everyone around him. As he grows more comfortable in his new home, there's one thing about Tanaka that will never change: He'll never stop trying to get better.
Carlos Beltran squinted down the third-base line and saw nothing but daylight. His reaction was to square up for a perfect bunt single, sending a message rippling through the Yankees' dugout: With their season already on the line, they must take advantage of every opportunity.
Michael Pineda has a bit of a reputation for talking to himself when he's on the mound. So when Pineda found himself in a bases-loaded jam with a one-run lead and one out in the fourth inning of the Yankees' 5-0 win over the Orioles on Wednesday night, it should come as no surprise that he resorted to his old habit. But unlike in the past, when he's yelled at himself or thrown verbal jabs to challenge himself, Pineda took a soothing approach.
Having missed three games after fouling a ball off his left foot Saturday afternoon, Mark Teixeira was back in the lineup for the Yankees' 5-0 win over the Orioles on Wednesday night, playing first base and hitting fifth. Teixeira quickly made his presence felt, clubbing a solo home run, his eighth of the season, in his second at-bat to give the Yanks a 2-0 lead. He then coaxed a bases-loaded walk for his 600th RBI as a Yankee in the sixth to make it 3-0.
Ten was the magic number for a pair of Dodgers pitchers on Wednesday night as both Jose De Leon and Yadier Alvarez struck out 10 hitters in their respective starts for Triple-A Oklahoma City and Class A Great Lakes.
The Mets will recall outfielder Brandon Nimmo from Triple-A Las Vegas for Friday's game against the Rockies, with outfielder Juan Lagares likely to go on the disabled list with a thumb injury, a source confirmed to MLB.com's Anthony DiComo. The club has not confirmed either move.
A Mets team that has not won consecutive games in three weeks is reeling. A Rockies club looking to establish itself as a postseason contender was more than happy on Thursday to take advantage. The Rockies scored the game-tying run on a fielding error and the go-ahead run on a wild pitch in the ninth inning at Citi Field, tagging Jeurys Familia for his second blown save in as many days in a 2-1 win over the Mets.
Last week, Mike Piazza was enshrined in the National Baseball Hall of Fame. This weekend, he'll be honored in Queens, the borough where he turned into an icon. It'll be Piazza Weekend at Citi Field, where the catcher's No. 31 will be retired on Saturday in a ceremony that will be streamed live on MLB.com.
Jeurys Familia was sitting quietly in a far corner of the Mets' clubhouse late Thursday afternoon when David Wright emerged from a back room, offered Familia a quick, reassuring pat on the shoulder, then disappeared as quickly as he had arrived. If Familia is as human as he says, and as human as he looked in blowing a second consecutive save in a 2-1 loss to the Rockies, he must have needed the reassurance.
Mets general manager Sandy Alderson could not have been clearer this week in saying that the Mets will not deal away any of their top prospects prior to Monday's non-waiver Trade Deadline. MLBPipeline.com's annual midseason prospect re-ranking provides a richer picture of just who those prospects are. June draftees Justin Dunn, Anthony Kay and Peter Alonso all cracked the Top 15 of the Mets' new list, which shortstop Amed Rosario tops.
A day after crushing a go-ahead, two-run homer off the facing of Citi Field's second deck in left field, Yoenis Cespedes was out of the lineup with the same right quad injury that has affected him since before the All-Star break.
Rockies right-hander Tyler Chatwood has allowed 39 home runs in his four-year career, but only one has come at the hands of the Mets. The culprit? Yoenis Cespedes, who has mashed his fair share of homers since getting traded to the Mets. But nearly a year later, Cespedes' injury problems have lately gained as much attention as his home run swing. The star outfielder might not be in the lineup when Chatwood takes the hill at Citi Field on Friday night opposite Steven Matz.
With a 3-for-4 performance in the Mets' 2-1 loss to the Rockies on Wednesday, Rene Rivera's second start in four days, his July batting average rose to .357. The 5-foot-10, 215-pound catcher has never been known for his speed, though. So while it looked like he might've gotten a bit too ambitious trying to stretch an RBI double into a triple in the second inning, Rivera offered an alternative explanation.
Former Syracuse offensive tackle Sean Hickey has signed with the Minnesota Vikings as a free agent. The Vikings announced Hickey's addition, along with addition of linebacker Jason Whittingham, yesterday. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
