Aaron Judge: Toe to require ‘constant maintenance’ rest of career

Aaron Judge’s big toe is more than a footnote for the New York Yankees. Judge missed 42 matches after tearing a ligament in his right big toe when he crashed into the right-field fence at Dodger Stadium last June 3, a big reason the Yankees fell from postseason contention. “It’s going to be I think a constant maintenance I think the rest of my career,” Judge said Tuesday. “Anything with injuries like that, you just got to stay on top of it so it doesn’t flare up again.” The affable 6-foot-7, 282-pound slugger returned July 28 and wound up hitting .262 […]

O’Shaquie Foster retains WBC junior lightweight title vs. Nova

O’Shaquie Foster retained his WBC junior lightweight title with a split-decision triumph over Abraham Nova on Friday at New York’s Theater at Madison Square Garden. One judge scored it 114-113 for Nova but was overruled by scores of 115-112 and 116-111 for Foster. The champion scored a 12th-round knockdown to seal the triumph, connecting with a counter left hand with less than 25 seconds left in the fight. “I’m a 12-round fighter and I know how to make adjustments through the fight,” said Foster, ESPN’s No. 2 boxer at 130 pounds. “He came on strong in the beginning, but I […]

Angels, OF Aaron Hicks agree to deal; Yankees on hook for $19M

The Los Angeles Angels agreed to terms on a one-year contract with veteran outfielder Aaron Hicks on Monday, adding him to an outfield mix that involves Mike Trout, Taylor Ward, Mickey Moniak and Jo Adell. Hicks is still under the seven-year, $70 million contract he initially signed with the New York Yankees, which extends through the 2025 season. The deal pays Hicks $9.5 million in 2024 and $9.5 million in 2025 and includes a $1 million buyout for a club option in 2026. The Yankees are still responsible for all of it minus the major league minimum of $740,000 the Angels will pay him in 2024. Looking for the […]

Bader back to N.Y., but this time with Mets on one-year deal

Center fielder Harrison Bader and the New York Mets agreed on a one-year, $10.5 million contract Thursday, sources told ESPN, the latest in a series of short-term pacts for the Mets as they approach 2024 as a transitional season. The 29-year-old Bader is a gifted defensive outfielder, but an inconsistent bat and injury issues have hampered him. Under new president of baseball operations David Stearns, the Mets have added Bader and Tyrone Taylor, both of whom can play center, to complement incumbent center fielder Brandon Nimmo and right fielder Starling Marte. Following a standout 2022 postseason in which he hit five home runs in nine matches for the New […]

Luis Severino goes from Yankees to Mets with $13M deal

Right-hander Luis Severino and the New York Mets on Wednesday agreed to a one-year, $13 million contract, sources told ESPN, sending the longtime Yankee to a Mets team that plans to spend its winter upgrading a depleted rotation. Severino, 29, had spent all of his eight-year career with the Yankees, including a rough 2023 in which he posted a 6.65 ERA over 89⅓ innings. Still, the free agent market has set the price of veteran starting pitchers at $10 million-plus a year — and Severino’s past success bought him slightly more. Over his first seven seasons with the Yankees, Severino was highly effective when healthy. He […]

James Harden to make Clippers debut Monday vs. Knicks

James Harden stated he will make his LA Clippers debut on Monday night at Madison Square Garden versus the New York Knicks. “Definitely,” Harden said when asked if he is sure to make his debut against the Knicks. Harden spoke to reporters before going through a practice on Sunday in New York and the point guard said he is good to go barring anything unforeseen happening. The Clippers have been off since losing to the Los Angeles Lakers in overtime Wednesday night. That has given Harden four days to learn the Clippers offense and get in a lot of on-court work. He has played 5-on-5 pickup […]

Boone knows his future with Yankees is ‘out of my hands’

Despite a contract that runs through 2024, with a club option for 2025, New York Yankees manager Aaron Boone stated Monday that he does not know if he will be invited back for next season. The Yankees are a disappointing 79-77 after Monday’s 6-4 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks, and they were eliminated from playoff contention Sunday. The .506 winning percentage is not only the worst of Boone’s six-year tenure, it is the club’s worst since a .469 mark in 1992. “No, I don’t worry about it,” Boone told reporters Monday when asked about his job security. “It’s out of my hands. I’m completely comfortable […]

Aaron Judge hit a grand slam, DJ LeMahieu broke an eighth-inning tie with an RBI double, and the New York Yankees defeated the Boston Red Sox 8-5 on Thursday night to split a doubleheader.

We wanted those runs in that inning,” Peraza said through a translator. “To be able to come through and connect there was incredible. We were able to win the series which […]
