  • deGrom pads RoY resume in win over Mariners July 23, 2014
    Jacob deGrom, who is approaching an innings load that may cause the Mets to start tapering off the rookie righty's use, delivered yet another solid outing in a 3-1 win over the Mariners on Tuesday night.

  • Grandy's illness, CY's injured calf test Mets' depth July 23, 2014
    Mets manager Terry Collins has struggled to find playing time for all six natural outfielders on his roster this month, but on Tuesday he struggled simply to cobble together an outfield full of healthy bodies as Curtis Granderson was out due to illness and Chris Young continued to battle cramping in his left calf.

  • Career-threatening injury stalls Rice's journey July 23, 2014
    Among the Mets' most inspirational stories last year, Scott Rice's fairy tale has reached at least a temporary end. The Mets announced that Rice will undergo surgery on Wednesday to remove a bone spur from his left elbow, ending his season.

  • Mets stumble to third straight loss July 22, 2014
    The Mets fell to the Mariners, 5-2, on Monday night at Safeco Field on the 10th anniversary of David Wright's big league debut. It was New York's third consecutive loss.

  • d'Arnauds on opposite ends of highlight catches July 22, 2014
    Mets catcher Travis d'Arnaud fell victim to one of the most impressive catches of the summer on Monday, when Seattle's Dustin Ackley skied over the left-field wall in the sixth inning to rob him of a homer. That play came a day after d'Arnaud's brother, Chase, made a spectacular -- and somewhat similar -- catch for Cleveland's Triple […]

  • Wright's decade in Flushing is a rare feat July 22, 2014
    Considering David Wright is the only current Mets player who was on the team even six years ago, his decade in Flushing stands as a rather remarkable accomplishment. He is also one of a select few Major League stars harboring real potential to spend his entire career with one team.

  • Collins welcomes DH rule in Seattle July 22, 2014
    Some National League managers loathe traveling to American League parks, knowing their rosters are constructed without the use of a designated hitter in mind. Not Terry Collins, who has worked futilely for weeks to find consistent at-bats for Mets outfielders Kirk Nieuwenhuis, Eric Young, Chris Young and Eric Campbell.

NY Yankees:

  • Needing every win, Yanks face test in Darvish July 23, 2014
    When Yu Darvish takes the mound in New York on Wednesday night to start the third of four games against the Yankees, Texas' ace will be seeking his 10th win of the season. Standing in his way will be New York right-hander David Phelps.

  • Newcomer Headley Yanks' walk-off hero in 14th July 23, 2014
    In his first game as a Yankee, Chase Headley connected for a game-winning single in the 14th inning, lifting the Yankees to a 2-1 victory over the Rangers early Wednesday morning at Yankee Stadium.

  • Jeter atop Yanks' doubles list with No. 535 July 23, 2014
    In the ninth inning of Tuesday's game against the Rangers, Derek Jeter ripped a one-out double down the left-field line off lefty Neal Cotts, passing Lou Gehrig to take over the Yankees' all-time doubles lead with No. 535.

  • Yanks get everyday third baseman in Headley July 23, 2014
    Residing within striking distance in the American League East, the Yankees sent a clear message on Tuesday that they intend to push for the postseason, completing a trade with the Padres for third baseman Chase Headley.
    Bryan Hoch
  • As much as bat, Headley's glove intrigues Yanks July 23, 2014
    Chase Headley will almost certainly be an offensive upgrade for the Yankees, who acquired the third baseman in a trade with the Padres on Tuesday, but he could also be a huge addition to the team's defense. The Yankees ranked near the bottom of the American League in defensive efficiency ratio at the time of the trade and made five errors in Monday

  • Martin robs McCann at wall with circus catch July 23, 2014
    Leading off the bottom of the second inning of Tuesday night's 2-1, 14-inning win over the Rangers at at Yankee Stadium, Yankees slugger Brian McCann lifted a 1-1 fastball from Nick Martinez to right-center field that saw Leonys Martin make an acrobatic, juggling catch just in front of the wall.
    Jake Kring-Schreifels
  • Amid moves, Yanks continue to seek upgrades July 22, 2014
    The Yankees now have Brandon McCarthy and Chase Headley as tangible proof of general manager Brian Cashman's many hours of July negotiating, but with the July 31 non-waiver Trade Deadline approaching, they would like to cross the finish line on more deals.

  • Making start in right, Johnson injures groin July 22, 2014
    The Yankees removed Kelly Johnson from right field before the 11th inning of Tuesday's 2-1 win over the Rangers due to a groin injury.

  • Gardner earns hustle honor for third time July 22, 2014
    For the second time in as many years, the Major League Baseball Players Alumni Association named Brett Gardner the Yankees' Heart and Hustle Award winner. The award, given to one member from each team, honors active players who demonstrate a passion for baseball and "best embody the values, spirit and tradition of the game." The only award vot […]

  • Padres-Yankees trade benefits both sides July 22, 2014
    Good trades benefit both teams. A trade should not be judged on a "winner" or "loser" basis. If a trade benefits the clubs involved, it's a good deal. That's my impression of the transaction that sent veteran third baseman Chase Headley from the Padres to the Yankees for prospect Rafael De Paula and infielder Yangervis Solarte. […]

Philadelphia Phillies :

  • Burnett focused on opposing Giants, not trade talk July 23, 2014
    As is the case for a handful of his Philadelphia teammates, A.J. Burnett's days with the Phillies may be numbered. He'll be opposed Wednesday by All-Star Giants lefty Madison Bumgarner.

  • Phillies lose in 14th after Papelbon's blown save July 23, 2014
    The Phillies gave scouts a good long look at nearly everybody on their roster in Tuesday's 9-6 loss in 14 innings to the Giants at Citizens Bank Park.

  • Utley wins fifth Heart and Hustle Award July 22, 2014
    Chase Utley was selected as the Phillies' winner of the Heart and Hustle Award, the Major League Baseball Players Alumni Association announced Tuesday.

  • Ruf returns to Phillies as Mayberry goes on DL July 22, 2014
    After a short stint in the Majors earlier this year, Darin Ruf was granted another crack at big league action after the Phillies recalled him from Triple-A Lehigh Valley before Tuesday's game vs. the Giants.

  • Bastardo trying to shut out trade rumors July 22, 2014
    Fifteen scouts had seats for Cliff Lee's start Monday night at Citizens Bank Park, but not everybody came to see him. Some came to see other Phillies players available before the July 31 non-waiver Trade Deadline, including left-hander Antonio Bastardo. If a team needs relief help, it almost certainly has contacted the Phillies about him.
    Todd Zolecki and Erik Bacharach
  • Numbers indicate Lee can still be effective July 22, 2014
    Cliff Lee returned to the mound for the Phillies on Monday, just in time for the club to showcase him to potential suitors with the non-waiver Trade Deadline approaching. He was not sharp.
    Tim Healey
  • Lee shows rust in potential showcase start July 22, 2014
    Cliff Lee has not stumped publicly to be traded, although he probably would not stand in the way of a change of scenery. But that will be tough to do before the July 31 non-waiver Trade Deadline.

  • Lee roughed up in first start off disabled list July 22, 2014
    With many contending teams keenly watching his every move, Cliff Lee fired a dud in Philadelphia's 7-4 series-opening loss to San Francisco on Monday.
    Erik Bacharach
  • Two reviews favor Phillies; one goes for Giants July 22, 2014
    A replay review in the second inning of Monday night's series opener between the Phillies and Giants confirmed that Michael Morse was legitimately tagged out at home plate. Another replay review was called for with two outs in the bottom of the seventh inning, when Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg won a challenge on a play at first base. Sandberg's l […]

  • Brignac, Nieves return to Phillies from disabled list July 21, 2014
    Cliff Lee's return to the starting rotation after two months on the disabled list was Monday night's headline, but the Phillies got back some additional depth in the form of Reid Brignac (left ankle sprain) and Wil Nieves (right quad strain), who were reinstated from the DL before the series opener against the Giants.
