NY Mets :

  • 'Dead arm' a dead issue: Harvey's heater lively May 30, 2015
    In an attempt to silence the alarms and call off the hounds before Friday's 4-3 loss to the Marlins, Mets general manager Sandy Alderson amended a description of the scary-sounding term that ace Matt Harvey has spent the last week semi-diagnosed and maybe unfairly labeled with -- "dead arm."

  • Mets put pieces in place, can't complete comeback May 30, 2015
    Even in the last days of a month that's seen his club's offense slow, then sputter, then stall, Terry Collins thought the Mets had a chance in Friday night's 4-3 loss to the Marlins. With Daniel Murphy standing on second base, a one-run deficit and two outs to play with, the manager was confident.

  • Rally falls short as Mets can't pick up Harvey May 30, 2015
    Matt Harvey's arm certainly isn't dead, but the righty may be in a bit of a slump. Harvey was throwing in the upper 90s after dealing with a bout of "dead arm" following his last start, and he struck out 11 over eight innings Friday night. But one bad pitch to Justin Bour was enough to hand Harvey his second straight loss as the Marlins t […]

  • Fridays with Harvey are required viewing May 30, 2015
    The 20-6 home record the Mets carried after sweeping the Phillies might have influenced some folks to show up. But the chance to see Matt Harvey on a Friday night seemingly was as seductive as Ms. Sue Ann Nivens at her Saturday night best.

  • Niese tries to reverse trend, even set with Fish May 30, 2015
    Saturday's Mets-Marlins matchup at Citi Field features two starting pitchers on opposite trajectories. New York left-hander Jon Niese has struggled recently, giving up 16 runs in his last three starts. He'll face Miami right-hander Tom Koehler, who's allowed just three runs in his last 13 innings.

  • deGrom gives toddler first haircut for charity May 29, 2015
    This year, the Mets donated a haircut from right-hander Jacob deGrom, easily recognizable by his shoulder-length brown hair. Jeff Lax was the highest bidder, and he handed control of his youngest son's first haircut to the 2014 National League Rookie of the Year.

  • d'Arnaud suffers setback unrelated to finger May 29, 2015
    The Mets hoped Travis d'Arnaud would need just two games at Class A Advanced St. Lucie before continuing his rehab for his fractured right pinky finger at Triple-A Las Vegas. But d'Arnaud is staying in St. Lucie indefinitely after suffering a bone bruise in his right wrist Thursday during his second rehab game.

  • Conforto promoted to Double-A Binghamton May 29, 2015
    The Mets continued their aggressive handling of last year's first-round Draft pick, outfielder Michael Conforto, promoting him Friday to Double-A Binghamton.

NY Yankees:

  • Yanks need Tanaka to resume ace status May 30, 2015
    The Yankees are sitting atop the American League East. The position, however, is precarious. And they know it. It is as apparent as the way they have welcomed Masahiro Tanaka back to the rotation, confirming Friday that the 26-year-old right-hander will come off the disabled list and start Wednesday in Seattle.

  • Headley puzzled by defensive woes May 30, 2015
    The theory of a defensive slump is one that Chase Headley subscribes to, though the Yankees third baseman can't explain why there is one dogging him at the hot corner.

  • McCann homers again, but Yanks fall to A's May 30, 2015
    A four-run third inning backed A's ace Sonny Gray, who did his part by completing eight solid innings in a 6-2 victory over the Yankees at the Coliseum on Friday night, securing Oakland its second straight win.

  • Yanks look to get back on track behind Eovaldi May 30, 2015
    The A's and Yankees meet Saturday in the third game of a four-game set at the Coliseum. Righty Jesse Hahn starts for the A's, looking to turn in another strong outing after his four-hit shutout of the Tigers on Monday. Yankees righty Nathan Eovaldi allowed one run in seven innings in a 14-1 win over the Royals on Monday.

  • Heathcott to DL with strained right quad May 30, 2015
    A week that started with Slade Heathcott celebrating his first career big league hit will conclude with the rookie outfielder heading to the disabled list, thanks to a Grade 2 strain of his right quadriceps.

  • CC regrets pitches to Burns, Lawrie May 29, 2015
    When CC Sabathia walked off the mound at the end of the third inning, having rung up back-to-back strikeouts to extricate himself from a bases-loaded, one-out jam, the Yankees left-hander wanted to believe that it would be a turning point.

  • A-Rod safe at home on overturned call May 29, 2015
    Yankees designated hitter Alex Rodriguez grazed home plate with his left hand, evading a tag from Athletics catcher Josh Phegley to score from second base on a single in a video-reviewed play Thursday night at the Coliseum.

Philadelphia Phillies :

  • Hamels outdueled as Phillies fall to Rockies May 30, 2015
    Rockies right-handed pitcher Chad Bettis took a perfect game into the seventh and no-hitter into the eighth as the Rockies defeated the Phillies, 4-1, at Citizens Bank Park.

  • Hamels' excellent effort goes unrewarded May 30, 2015
    Cole Hamels is so aware of the situation he's in, he doesn't even feel a need to talk about it. He knows everybody understands. On the day-to-day scale, Hamels is aware that he's almost always going to have to face an ace. In May alone, he's matched up against Matt Harvey, Francisco Liriano and Stephen Strasburg. But even on the few days, […]

  • Phillies promote top prospect Crawford to Double-A May 30, 2015
    As of Friday night, J.P. Crawford is one step closer to his future. After blazing through High-A ball, the 20-year-old shortstop prospect has been promoted to Double-A Reading, effective immediately.

  • Asche breaks up no-no trying to punish Rox's shift May 30, 2015
    Cody Asche had plenty of things to be nervous about in the Phillies' 4-1 loss. Yesterday, Asche was a Minor Leaguer. Last month, he was a third baseman. And a few hours ago, he and his teammates were in danger of combining to tally zero hits over nine innings. But none of this troubled Asche.

  • No benefit to rushing Phillies' top prospects May 28, 2015
    General manager Ruben Amaro Jr. apologized this week for his harsh comments about Phillies fans in a recent story, but of everything he said in a nearly 20-minute interview with beat reporters on Tuesday at Citi Field, he got this much right: It makes no sense to rush them to the big leagues.
