NY Mets :

  • Wheeler aims to continue career success vs. Marlins September 1, 2014
    When Zack Wheeler goes fishing in South Florida, he never comes home empty-handed. In five career starts against Miami, including four this season, he is 2-0 with a 1.04 ERA and five quality starts. Wheeler will be opposed by Henderson Alvarez when the Mets and Marlins open a three-game series Monday.

  • Mets calling up Satin, Centeno, two others August 31, 2014
    Reinforcements are coming for the injury-riddled Mets. Following the club's 6-5 win over the Phillies on Sunday, the team announced it is calling up four players -- Josh Satin, Juan Centeno, Erik Goeddel and Dario Alvarez -- for Monday's opener against the Marlins, the first day rosters expand from 25 to as many as 40 players.

  • Edgin, Dice-K staying in NY to have elbows checked August 31, 2014
    The Mets headed to Miami following their 6-5 win over the Phillies on Sunday. Left-hander Josh Edgin and right-hander Daisuke Matsuzaka did not. Both relievers are staying in New York to have their problematic elbows examined by doctors.

  • Recker delivers big blow to help Mets win series August 31, 2014
    For a moment Sunday afternoon at Citi Field -- before the Mets finished off the Phillies, 6-5 -- one Anthony Recker swing in the sixth inning eased the pains of a difficult season in Queens, his bat colliding with an A.J. Burnett breaking ball that never really broke, the ball soaring through the humid August air until it landed a half-dozen rows back in lef […]

  • Slumping Granderson gets chance to clear mind August 31, 2014
    Amidst a month-long slump that has seen his strikeout rate (21.9 percent) rise above his batting average (.214), Curtis Granderson got a day off for the first time in 24 games Sunday in the Mets' series finale with the Phillies. Manager Terry Collins made his regular right fielder aware of the chance to "clear his mind a little bit" Sunday mor […]

  • Mets prospect Herrera collects first MLB hit August 31, 2014
    The ball sits atop Dilson Herrera's locker, dirtied and smacked around, just like dozens of others at Citi Field on Saturday. This one, though, is different. A slip of orange paper -- bound to the baseball by a rubber band -- designates its significance: Herrera's first Major League hit.

  • Colon's rough sixth inning sends Mets to defeat August 31, 2014
    More and more, it seems as though Bartolo Colon will remain in Flushing through August, through September and quite possibly beyond. After all, the Mets would miss the big fella if he was traded. At 41, Colon has given the Mets more than seems reasonable given his age and mileage; the six runs he allowed in Saturday's 7-2 loss to the Phillies at Citi Fi […]

  • Collins manages 1,500th career game August 30, 2014
    Terry Collins wasn't sure he would ever reach this mark. But Collins blasted past a personal milestone on Saturday, managing his 1,500th career big league game.

  • deGrom making case to be NL Rookie of the Year August 30, 2014
    Jacob deGrom's National League Rookie of the Year Award bid appears to be back on track. By firing seven innings of one-run (zero earned) ball against the Phillies on Friday night, deGrom increased his win-loss record to 7-6 while decreasing his ERA to 2.94. Reds outfielder Billy Hamilton has also been hot, batting .304 since Aug. 19, thereby narrowing […]

  • Herrera makes Major League debut for Mets August 30, 2014
    With Daniel Murphy on the disabled list for at least the next two weeks with a strained right calf, and possibly longer than that, the Mets saw this as an ideal opportunity to see their No. 8 prospect, Dilson Herrera, in action. Herrera hit seventh and played second base in his Major League debut against the Phillies on Friday. He went 0-for-3 with an error. […]

NY Yankees:

  • Yankees acquire Roe for bullpen depth September 1, 2014
    The Yankees on Sunday acquired Chaz Roe from the Marlins in exchange for cash. The 27-year-old has been in the Minor Leagues for most of the last 10 seasons but he could join the big league club as bullpen depth when rosters expand on Monday.

  • Greene out to stymie Red Sox in opener September 1, 2014
    Boston will send Joe Kelly to the mound for Tuesday's series opener at Yankee Stadium. New York will counter with rookie Shane Greene for the latest battle between the American League East foes.

  • McCarthy surrenders lead as Yanks drop finale August 31, 2014
    Brandon McCarthy gave up a trio of homers and the Yankees saw a three-run lead evaporate in a 4-3 loss to the Blue Jays in Sunday's series finale at Rogers Centre.

  • Jeter honored before series finale August 31, 2014
    The Blue Jays presented Derek Jeter with a vacation package to Canada's west coast as a retirement gift prior to Sunday's series finale.

  • Girardi being cautious with Ellsbury's ankle August 31, 2014
    Jacoby Ellsbury was held out of the Yankees' starting lineup on Sunday for the second consecutive game with a sore left ankle. He did appear in the game, however, doubling as a pinch-hitter in the ninth inning of the Yanks' 4-3 loss to Toronto.

  • Yankees find one hit doesn't take them far August 30, 2014
    Michael Pineda pitched well but didn't get the support he needed from the Yankees' offense in a 2-0 loss to the Blue Jays on Saturday at Rogers Centre. New York was held to one one hit all afternoon -- Mark Teixeira's fourth-inning double.

  • Yanks opt to rest Ellsbury's banged-up ankle August 30, 2014
    Yankees center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury was held out of Saturday's starting lineup against the Blue Jays with a sore left ankle.

  • Play at home in Toronto gets pair of reviews August 30, 2014
    Jacoby Ellsbury was originally ruled safe at home in the ninth inning of Friday's game between the Yankees and Blue Jays, but after Toronto challenged, the call was overturned. A crew chief review was then issued after Yankees manager Joe Girardi spoke with the umpires, but the replay showed no violation of Rule 7.13.

  • Ellsbury powers Yanks' late charge vs. Blue Jays August 30, 2014
    Jacoby Ellsbury homered during a five-run seventh inning to power the Yankees to a 6-3 series-opening victory over the division-rival Blue Jays on Friday night at Rogers Centre.

  • Jeter expresses love for the city of Toronto August 30, 2014
    Derek Jeter's farewell tour continued Friday when the Yankees made their final visit of the 2014 regular season to Toronto, marking the last time the shortstop will play at Rogers Centre.

Philadelphia Phillies :

  • Phillies trade Mayberry to Blue Jays September 1, 2014
    The Phillies made one more trade before Sunday's midnight waiver Trade Deadline, shipping outfielder John Mayberry Jr. to the Blue Jays in exchange for Double-A third baseman Gustavo Pierre.

  • Hamels aims to continue recent success against Braves September 1, 2014
    To say that the Braves are not looking forward to facing Phillies lefty Cole Hamels on Labor Day afternoon at Turner Field might be an understatement. Atlanta has not beaten the Philadelphia hurler since Opening Day 2013. The Braves will counter with righty Julio Teheran on Monday.

  • Phils unable to overcome Burnett's struggles August 31, 2014
    On Sunday afternoon at Citi Field, A.J. Burnett finished his August much like he began it. After a strong four scoreless innings, he collapsed, allowing five runs over the next two innings that were punctuated by a go-ahead three-run home run by Anthony Recker in the Phillies' 6-5 loss to the Mets.

  • Phils' callups could include Franco, Gonzalez August 31, 2014
    The Phillies likely won't be welcoming or parting with any Major League players before Sunday's waiver deadline. But on Monday, when the roster can expand up to 40 players, some young new faces will give the Phillies a partial glimpse into the future.

  • Phillies release veteran right-hander Marquis August 31, 2014
    The Phillies announced Sunday morning that they released veteran right-hander Jason Marquis from the organization after signing him in early June.

  • Lineup clicks to back Williams as Phils top Mets August 31, 2014
    Jerome Williams pitched into the seventh in his fourth straight solid start, Marlon Byrd hit his 25th homer and the Phillies used a five-run sixth inning to even their series vs. the Mets with a 7-2 victory on Saturday night at Citi Field.
    Todd Zolecki
  • Phils get safe call overturned, complete double play August 31, 2014
    Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg challenged a call Saturday night at Citi Field, and the ruling came back in his favor. Replay officials overturned the safe call on the field by deciding that Philadelphia second baseman Chase Utley tagged out a sliding David Wright during a rundown in the fourth inning.

  • Any Phils trades likely won't come until offseason August 30, 2014
    If the Phillies plan to rebuild their roster through trades, those deals are likely to come in the offseason. The Phillies seem unlikely to trade anybody before Sunday's midnight deadline to acquire players eligible for the postseason, unless there is an injury or an unexpected change of heart from an opposing general manager.
    Todd Zolecki
  • Asche won't try outfield if Franco is called up August 30, 2014
    Triple-A Lehigh Valley infielder Maikel Franco could be in the big leagues as early as Monday when rosters expand. If he is called up, the Phillies will need to find playing time for him. He can spell Ryan Howard at first base, but he also can play third base.
    Todd Zolecki
  • Sloppy seventh sends Phils to loss to Mets August 30, 2014
    The Phillies need to find ways to motivate themselves with a month of games to play in 2014. They are miles from a pennant race, so it will not be easy. But on Friday night at Citi Field, they had an opportunity to finally get out of last place in the National League East for the first time since June 27. They remained there following a sloppy 4-1 loss to th […]
