NY Yankees

Just before Starlin Castro launched a game-tying homer to set up Matt Holliday's walk-off blast, powering the Yankees' wild 14-11, 10-inning victory over the Orioles on Friday night, the second baseman issued a bold prediction from the Yankee Stadium infield clay.
All rise; the ruling is in. Yankees rookie Aaron Judge now owns the hardest-hit home run in the Statcast™ Era, topping Giancarlo Stanton's previous record by belting a 119.4-mph rocket into Monument Park in Friday night's wild 14-11 Yankees win over the Orioles at Yankee Stadium.
With shortstop Didi Gregorius out of the Yankees' lineup for the first month of the 2017 season, Ronald Torreyes stepped up in a big way.
It all began 15 years ago, and you are going to want to be part of the MLB.TV celebration of baseball and technology, as the world's longest-running and most successful live-streaming sports product is a way of life for millions.
Reaching a round-number milestone is always sweeter in a win, and Jacoby Ellsbury couldn't have picked a more opportune evening to hit his first career grand slam.
Ranking all 8 (!) HRs from wild Yanks win
The Yankees' turnaround from a 1-4 start doesn't surprise the Orioles, who are tied with the Yanks for first place in the American League East.

The Yankees have unveiled an improved fan experience in the form of many stadium enhancements and a new dining menu for everyone.
Down eight runs heading into the bottom of the sixth inning at Yankee Stadium on Friday night, the Yankees rallied to score 13 over the next five frames and beat the Orioles, 14-11, in 10 innings. Matt Holliday's walk-off, three-run homer against Jayson Aquino ended it.
At one point on Friday night, we simultaneously had Bryce Harper hitting with the bases loaded in the ninth inning, Manny Machado facing Aroldis Chapman, and Craig Kimbrel facing Kris Bryant. We had the Braves overcome a pair of four-run deficits; we had the Yankees overcome an eight-run deficit. It's not like baseball needed any help making this one of the most interesting nights all year.
Off to their best 20-game start since 2010, the Yankees believe their lineup is now even more formidable with the return of shortstop Didi Gregorius, who was activated from the 10-day disabled list prior to Friday's series opener against the Orioles.
Masahiro Tanaka got the best of an exquisite pitchers' duel against Chris Sale in a Thursday night thriller at Fenway Park, leading the Yankees to a 3-0 victory over the Red Sox. Neither team had an extra-base hit.
The sparkling ERA and eye-popping strikeout totals that Chris Sale had amassed through four starts in a Red Sox uniform served as ammunition for Masahiro Tanaka, who digested those digits before warming up in the Fenway Park bullpen on Thursday evening.
Matt Holliday had Chris Sale's repertoire rattling through his mind as they engaged in a 10-pitch battle during the fourth inning of Thursday's 3-0 Yankees victory over the Red Sox, resulting in a sacrifice fly to left field that sent Aaron Hicks home with the first run of the evening.
Ron Blomberg is best known for playing with the Yankees and becoming the first designated hitter in 1973. But before anyone in baseball heard of him, Blomberg signed a letter of intent to play college basketball for head coach John Wooden at UCLA.
Aaron Judge's 25th birthday started out as one that he won't soon forget. Over the span of his first three innings at Fenway Park on Wednesday, the Yankees rookie mashed a two-run homer on the first pitch he saw, then hurdled a wall to catch a foul pop down the right-field line.
Aaron Judge and Luis Severino emerged from the thick fog at Fenway Park to lift the Yankees to a 3-1 victory over the Red Sox on Wednesday night in the first of 19 rivalry matchups this season.
Luis Severino's adrenaline rushed as he dialed the prized digits, having scored Pedro Martinez's phone number from a mutual acquaintance. It was a call he had to make; if anyone knew how to consistently dominate a big league lineup, it would be the Hall of Fame right-hander.
Aaron Judge will celebrate his 25th birthday by taking aim at the Green Monster for the first time in a Major League game, and it was between Fenway Park's white lines that the hulking rookie might have cemented his future in a Yankees uniform.
Tuesday's Yankees-Red Sox game has been postponed due to inclement weather. The current forecast for the Fenway Park area calls for sustained periods of rain to continue throughout the afternoon and into the evening hours, with temperatures in the low 40s.
Derek Jeter has spoken often about his desire to call the shots for a Major League Baseball franchise, so his former teammates reacted with little surprise that the retired Yankees captain could soon be one of the voices in charge of the Miami Marlins.
It's nearly as common a Spring Training refrain as the ubiquitous "best shape of my life," though it usually starts being uttered a couple of weeks later.
No sport lends itself to literate writing like baseball. America's national pastime makes appearances in the works of some of our most fabled authors. It has been used, as a stage or backdrop, to contemplate life, death, ambition, discrimination, God, sex, fame, success, failure, hope, madness and despair. Kill the Ampaya! The Best Latin American Baseball Fiction is a welcome reminder that inspired writing about the sport isn't limited to the United States.
What led to Greg Bird's struggles at the plate? Beat reporter Bryan Hoch answers questions from Yankees fans in the latest Inbox.
Posting zeroes has become the norm for Class A Kane County's Jon Duplantier in the first month of the Minor League season. On Monday, the D-backs' No. 8 prospect fired five dominant frames to extend his scoreless innings streak to 20 1/3 to begin the season.
It was Jordan Montgomery's best start of the three he has made this season in his brief Yankees career, but the rookie left-hander found little comfort in that on Sunday. New York lost the game and, by his own admission, he wasn't very good.
Yes, that's the same Ivan Nova. Facing his former team for the first time, Nova put together the kind of performance he's become known for since joining the Pirates, firing seven efficient innings and leading the Bucs to a 2-1 victory and series win over the Yankees on Sunday afternoon at PNC Park.
Judge draws high praise for moonshot
Held hitless for 4 2/3 innings Saturday afternoon, the Yankees finally found their bats -- in a big way. Starlin Castro and Chris Carter each launched a three-run homer and Aaron Judge added a solo shot in the ninth, leading the Yankees to an 11-5 win at PNC Park.
For those wondering why the Yankees signed Chris Carter, the big slugger provided a clue Saturday.
Clint Frazier has had Yankees fans abuzz since New York traded for him last July, but he hadn't gotten off to the hottest start to the 2017 season at the plate. As of Saturday, that looks like it might be changing.


NY Mets

Working their way back up the National League East standings was never a one-game proposition for the Mets. Nor was maintaining their first-place perch a one-game assignment for the Nationals.
A dominant effort from Jacob deGrom and a career night from Travis d'Arnaud at the plate halted the Mets' losing streak at six in a thrilling 7-5 victory over the Nationals, staving off a late Nationals rally that included Nats center fielder Adam Eaton leaving the game with a leg injury in the ninth inning.
Mets manager Terry Collins has been around these parts long enough. He has won his share of games. He has lost even more. He understands as well as anyone what would have happened had his decision gone awry, had Bryce Harper cracked a Josh Edgin slider into the night toward Capitol Hill.
It all began 15 years ago, and you are going to want to be part of the MLB.TV celebration of baseball and technology, as the world's longest-running and most successful live-streaming sports product is a way of life for millions.
Francisco Mejia has already piled up plenty of hits for Double-A Akron this season, but it wasn't until Friday night that the Indians' No. 2 prospect entered the home run column, connecting on a solo shot in the ninth inning of the RubberDucks' 6-1 win over Bowie.
For most of the past two weeks, the Mets' clubhouse crown, a nightly gift to their player of the game, has sat unused at the bottom of an empty locker. In losing six straight games and 10 of 11, the Mets had no use for their team-bonding emblem.
Noah Syndergaard said he "felt great" after throwing Friday afternoon at Nationals Park, keeping him on track to pitch Sunday against the Nationals.
Who do the Mets have in the pipeline? Get scouting reports, video, stats, projected ETAs and more for New York's Top 30 Prospects on MLBPipeline.com's Prospect Watch.
Yoenis Cespedes' return to the Mets lasted barely more than a game. Cespedes pulled up lame at second base after doubling to open the fourth inning Thursday, eventually limping off the field alongside trainer Ray Ramirez.
Dominic Smith has always hit. The Mets' No. 2 prospect has batted above .300 in three of the four seasons since he was selected No. 11 overall in 2013. However, entering the 2017 season, Smith's first with Triple-A Las Vegas, he turned the intensity up a notch.
