Eric Chavez opts to be New York Mets hitting coach just weeks after being hired by Yankees

The New York Mets have agreed to hire Eric Chavez as their hitting coach, just weeks after he joined the crosstown New York Yankees as an assistant hitting coach, sources confirmed to ESPN on Thursday. Neither team has spoken openly on the matter, but the transition, while uncommon, was said to have been executed in good faith. Chavez, who was revealed as part of Aaron Boone’s staff with the Yankees on Dec. 21, now will help make up the burgeoning staff of longtime manager Buck Showalter and join Mets general manager Billy Eppler for the third time.

Los Angeles Angels hire Phil Nevin, Bill Haselman and Benji Gil; Adam Eaton could return as coach

The Los Angeles Angels are bringing in Phil Nevin, Bill Haselman and Benji Gil as part of their coaching staff under manager Joe Maddon, the team revealed Wednesday. Their roles have yet to be determined, at least in part because of the uncertainty surrounding Adam Eaton, a prospective coach who played last season and thus can’t communicate with team officials because of Major League Baseball’s ongoing lockout. Eaton, 33, spent the last 10 years as a major league outfielder and made enough of an impression with the Angels in 2021 — particularly on young outfielders Brandon Marsh and Jo Adell — that the team has considered […]

Los Angeles Lakers need steady play from Russell Westbrook with roster depleted, acting head coach David Fizdale says

The Los Angeles Lakers have lost three matches in a row, have four players and their head coach in the NBA’s health and safety protocols and are still reeling from the news that Anthony Davis is expected to miss at least a month with a sprained MCL in his left knee. As the team tries to weather the maelstrom of maladies it is facing, former league MVP and nine-time All-Star Russell Westbrook has taken it upon himself to try to pull them out of it. However, acting head coach David Fizdale — filling in for Frank Vogel while he is recovering from COVID-19 — said the […]

Oakland Athletics announce promotion of Mark Kotsay, 46, from third-base coach to manager

The Oakland Athletics announced, on Tuesday, the hiring of Mark Kotsay as their next manager. Kotsay, 46, was Oakland’s third-base coach last season and is a former bench coach with the Athletics. He now takes over for Bob Melvin, who left to manage the San Diego Padres. Kotsay is a former major league outfielder who played for seven clubs, including the Athletics. He finished his career with 127 home runs, 720 RBIs and a .276 batting average. The Athletics, who have long been an American League contender with a small payroll, continue to compete for postseason appearances. Oakland was deep in the mix […]

New York Mets hire Buck Showalter as new manager

The New York Mets have hired Buck Showalter as their new manager, team owner Steven Cohen revealed Saturday on Twitter. Showalter received a three-year contract, according to a person familiar with the deal. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the length of the agreement had not been announced. Showalter, 65, takes over for Luis Rojas, who was fired after a season in which the team held on to first place for 103 days but ultimately concluded 77-85 and missed the playoffs. Houston Astros bench coach Joe Espada and Tampa Bay Rays bench coach Matt Quatraro also were candidates for the […]

Pittsburgh Pirates tab Andy Haines as hitting coach

The Pittsburgh Pirates have hired former Milwaukee assistant Andy Haines as hitting coach. Haines replaces Rick Eckstein, who was fired in August. Haines spent the last three seasons as the hitting coach in Milwaukee before being let go in October. Haines joins one of the worst offensive teams in the major leagues. The Pirates finished last in the majors in runs, home runs and slugging percentage in 2021, and in the bottom six in batting average and on-base plus slugging on their way to a third straight last-place finish in the NL Central.

Garland scores 24 points, Cavaliers beat Bulls 115-92

Darius Garland scored 24 points and rookie power forward Evan Mobley had 16 points and nine rebounds, sending the Cleveland Cavaliers to a 115-92 victory over the Chicago Bulls on Wednesday night. Garland also had six assists as Cleveland won for the fifth time in seven games, earning its most lopsided home victory of the season.

Evan got us started and got […]

New York Yankees designate Clint Frazier, Rougned Odor, Tyler Wade for assignment

Clint Frazier’s tenure with the Yankees might have ended after five unfulfilling campaigns when New York designated him for assignment Friday to open a roster spot for a prospect ahead of the winter meeting draft. Frazier can be claimed by another major league team off waivers. If he is not, he could be assigned outright to the minors, but he would have the right to reject the assignment and become a free agent because he has at least three years of major league service. Infielders Rougned Odor and Tyler Wade also were designated for assignment. Now 27, Frazier was the fifth pick overall in the 2013 […]

Stephen Curry scored 20 of his 40 points in the fourth quarter, hitting three straight 3-pointers, and the NBA-leading Golden State Warriors overcame a 13-point deficit to beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 104-89 on Thursday night.

Los Angeles Dodgers’ Andrew Heaney confident he’ll bounce back after rough ’21

Andrew Heaney is eager to bounce back from a rough season. The Los Angeles Dodgers consider he can too, with some adjustments. The free agent left-hander signed an $8.5 million, one-year deal last week that brings him back to Southern California, where he pitched for the Angels from 2015 until getting shipped to the New York Yankees at the July trade deadline. He was a combined 8-9 with a 5.83 ERA last season. He fared worse in New York, where he was 2-2 with a 7.32 ERA in 12 games, including five starts, after the swap. “I didn’t turn it around, and that’s something I […]
