Gerrit Cole’s longest no-hit bid of MLB career broken up in 8th inning as New York Yankees beat Tampa Bay Rays for 50th win

Gerrit Cole will continue topping the list of best active major league pitchers without a no-hitter after a spectacular seven-inning performance in the New York Yankees’ 4-2 win over the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field on Monday night. The triumph put the Yankees a season-high-tying 33 games over .500 at 50-17, matching the historic 1998 club for the third-best 67-game start in franchise history. Cole, trying to become the 13th pitcher to throw a no-hitter in pinstripes, permitted only three baserunners through seven innings before infielder Isaac Paredes’ sharp grounder up the middle in the eighth put an end to the longest no-hit bid of Cole’s […]

Miguel Andujar requests trade from New York Yankees following demotion

Miguel Andujar has requested a trade from the New York Yankees after being demoted to the minors, according to multiple reports. Andujar informed Yankees manager Aaron Boone of his wish to be traded Friday after New York optioned the outfielder to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, according to reports. The New York Post reported that Andujar has been seeking a trade since the end of the 2021 season. The Yankees have not confirmed the reports, and Boone would not elaborate on his discussion with Andujar, calling the demotion a result of a “tough numbers game.” Looking for the best online betting site and Live betting?

New York Yankees reliever Chad Green to have Tommy John surgery

New York Yankees reliever Chad Green will undergo Tommy John surgery, manager Aaron Boone revealed Sunday. Boone stated Green, who was placed on the injured list Saturday because of his ailing right elbow, is still deciding on who will perform the surgery. The team faced the right-hander on the 15-day IL on Saturday with what was described at the time as a right elbow strain. However, needing second and third opinions, Boone didn’t sugarcoat things — calling the injury “significant” before the Yankees’ 7-5 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Saturday.

HR-happy Dodgers surge past D-Backs, win doubleheader opener

Although the Los Angeles Dodgers keep falling behind early, they’ve had enough power lately to make sure they don’t stay there. Mookie Betts, Trea Turner and Justin Turner homered in a five-run sixth inning, and the Dodgers outlasted the Arizona Diamondbacks 7-6 Tuesday to start the first doubleheader ever played between the NL West rivals. Will Smith also connected early for the Dodgers, whose four homers matched their season high. Betts also doubled and singled, and Freddie Freeman added a key RBI single in the seventh inning of Los Angeles’ third consecutive win after a four-game skid. The Dodgers fell behind by multiple runs for the seventh consecutive game, but rallied […]

Royals bullpen backs up Daniel Lynch in 2-0 win over Twins

Daniel Lynch was pitching so well into the sixth inning Wednesday night that Royals manager Mike Matheny would’ve left him in the game versus Minnesota had the Kansas City offense provided a little more support. Two runs turned out to be plenty for Matheny’s bullpen, though. Four relievers followed Lynch, each delivering a shutout frame, and the Royals held on for a 2-0 triumph over the Twins on a dreary night at Kauffman Stadium that saw fewer than 9,000 fans walk through the gates. “Just that great mix of pitching, bullpen and defense is everything you could want,” Matheny said. Lynch […]

St. Louis Cardinals’ Albert Pujols to make 22nd consecutive Opening Day start, will be DH on Thursday

Albert Pujols will be in the starting lineup for the St. Louis Cardinals versus the Pittsburgh Pirates when he starts his final big league season Thursday in what should be an emotional return to Busch Stadium. Cardinals manager Oliver Marmol announced Monday that Pujols, who signed a $2.5 million contract to return to the club where he became a star, will be the designated hitter for his 22nd consecutive Opening Day start. That matches Hank Aaron and Carl Yastrzemski for second most behind only Pete Rose, who made 23 straight during his career. “I don’t want to set expectations because I like to be surprised, […]

Houston Astros’ Justin Verlander happy to get through spring training healthy

Houston Astros ace Justin Verlander pitched five solid innings in his final spring training tuneup Sunday and pronounced himself healthy and ready to start the season. His next start is set to come in the third game of the year, next Saturday night on the road versus the Los Angeles Angels. “I’m happy to get through it healthy, but I still have some stuff to work on,” Verlander said. “I’m looking at it two different ways. Definitely pleased with the health part, though.” The two-time Cy Young winner hasn’t pitched in the regular season since July 2020; after making his first start in the […]

Kansas City Royals exercise option to keep manager Mike Matheny through 2023 season

The Kansas City Royals exercised their club option on Mike Matheny for the 2023 season on Thursday, eliminating any insecurity over whether their manager will stay with the club after the coming season. Matheny is entering his third season with the Royals, which includes the COVID-19-shortened 2020 season and his first 162-game run as the manager last season. He is 100-122 with Kansas City and 691-596 overall, which includes seven seasons as the manager of the St. Louis Cardinals. “Mike is one of the finest leaders I’ve been around and the Royals are fortunate to have him managing our team,” Royals president Dayton […]

Brad Ausmus joins Oakland A’s as bench coach for first-time manager Mark Kotsay

Brad Ausmus, former manager of the Detroit Tigers and the Los Angeles Angels, has been hired as bench coach for the Oakland Athletics, providing some much-needed experience to the coaching staff of rookie manager Mark Kotsay. The A’s settled Kotsay’s coaching staff on Friday, also announcing the promotion of Tommy Everidge to major league hitting coach and the hiring of Chris Cron as an assistant hitting coach. Ausmus, 52, managed the Tigers from 2014 to 2017, winning the American League Central Division at the beginning of that four-year stretch and concluding with a 314-332 regular-season record. The longtime major league catcher then went 72-90 […]

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 […]
