New York Mets reach 1-year deal with CF Kevin Pillar

For most of this offseason, the Mets worked to get stronger up the middle. They got Francisco Lindor to play shortstop, shifted Jeff McNeil to second base and signed James McCann to work behind the plate. Now, the Mets have multiple possibilities in center field as well. The team agreed to terms on Monday on a one-year deal with Kevin Pillar, a historically strong defender who is coming off his best year as a hitter. Pillar won’t necessarily be an everyday starter for the Mets, but his presence gives them the option of moving Brandon Nimmo to left, at least on […]

Boston Celtics’ Kemba Walker makes season debut after knee rehabilitation

Celtics star Kemba Walker made his season debut Sunday afternoon in Boston against the New York Knicks. Celtics coach Brad Stevens said Walker, who has been out since the end of last season as he underwent a strengthening program for his ailing left knee, would play about 20 minutes. “Right around there,” Stevens said before the game. “We’re not asking him to be anything other than Kemba Walker. “Obviously he’s excited to play. He’s ready to play. They’ve put in a lot of work to get to this point, and we’re looking forward to having him out there.” Walker has had issues with the […]

New York Yankees’ Gio Urshela likely out 3 months after elbow surgery

New York Yankees third baseman Gio Urshela had surgery Friday to remove a bone chip from his right elbow, and the team stated his expected recovery time is three months. Urshela is likely to miss about half of spring training, which starts in mid-February, and will have just a few weeks to get into shape ahead of the opener versus Toronto on April 1. Yankees head team physician Dr. Christopher Ahmad operated at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital. Urshela was bothered by his throwing arm for much of the pandemic-shortened campaign. He was placed on the 10-day injured list with a bone spur in his right […]

New York Mets, reliever Trevor May reach 2-year deal

If he’s not the top pitching Trevor in this free-agent market — or perhaps not even the second-best such entity — Trevor May has performed very well out of the bullpen the past three seasons. Now he holds a place in Mets history unlike any player, first names notwithstanding. The 31-year-old right-hander is Steve Cohen’s first significant Mets import. Multiple industry sources confirmed the Mets and May, a 31-year-old right-handed reliever, have agreed to a two-year contract for about $15 million, pending a physical. SNY first reported the agreement after MLB.com first reported that the two sides were deep into […]

New York-bred Therapist tallies 8th stakes win in Artie Schiller

Oak Bluff Stables’ Therapist sat well off the pace and displayed a devastating turn-of-foot down the lane to secure a neck victory in scoring his eighth stakes victory in Saturday’s sixth running of the $100,000 Artie Schiller going one mile over the good inner turf at Aqueduct Racetrack. Never worse than fourth in his last dozen starts, the New York-bred 5-year-old son of Freud notched his sixth stakes win versus open company, scoring at such caliber in each of his years in training, dating back to his 2-year-old year in 2017, where he won the Laurel Futurity at Laurel Park and the Awad at […]

New York Yankees slugger Giancarlo Stanton to keep remaining $218 million in deal

Giancarlo Stanton is keeping the remaining $218 million and seven guaranteed years in his New York Yankees contract rather than opt out after a pair of injury-decimated campaigns. The designated hitter, who turns 31 on Nov. 8, hit .266 with 38 homers and 100 RBIs in his first campaign with the Yankees in 2018. He batted .288 with three homers and 13 RBIs in 2019, when he was limited to 18 games by a left biceps strain that sidelined him from April 1 to June 18 and a right knee strain that kept him out from June 26 to Sept. 18. He hit […]

New York Yankees might miss the MLB playoffs they need to regroup soon

The fallout of the New York Yankees’ beating at the hands, bats and gloves of the Baltimore Orioles is one that appears to have started shifting the momentum in one direction, one in which the Bronx Bombers might be at risk of missing the MLB playoffs altogether. The Yankees accomplished 16 of their first 22 matches. Securing a spot in a 16-team expanded postseason was all but a given for a team that had hammered 40 home runs and slugged a robust .487 as a unit. New York was living up to its star billing, mowing down opponents by scoring an average of […]

Jets WR Quincy Enunwa not giving up on playing again despite career-threatening neck injury

New York Jets wide receiver Quincy Enunwa, fighting a career-threatening neck injury that will keep him off the field in 2020, still hopes to play again one day. But that decision, he said, no longer is in his control. In an interview with ESPN, Enunwa stated Wednesday it was “devastating” to learn recently he had been ruled out for the season. Now, he said, the only thing he can do is play the waiting game. “If I’m capable of playing, then that’s what I’ll do,” he said, making his first public comments since the end of the campaign. “If it comes down […]

Belmont Stakes to Run June 20 as First Leg of Triple Crown

The 2020 Belmont Stakes at Belmont Park in New York has been postponed by two weeks from Saturday, June 6 to Saturday, June 20 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This year’s edition of the race will be 1 1/8-miles (9 furlongs) instead of its traditional 1 1/2-miles. There will be no audiences. “The 152nd running of the Belmont Stakes will be run at a distance of 1 1/8-miles to properly account for the schedule adjustments to the Triple Crown series and overall calendar for 3-year-olds in training,” the New York Racing Association said in a statement.

Luis Severino has Tommy John surgery, out for 2020 season

New York Yankees right-hander Luis Severino underwent Tommy John surgery on Thursday, the Yankees revealed. His 2020 season is over before it even started. The Yankees added that Severino had an existing bone chip removed from his elbow during the procedure. GM Brian Cashman announced earlier this spring that Severino, who was limited to three regular-season appearances in 2019, had dealt with forearm soreness dating back to October, when he made a pair of postseason starts for the Yankees. The team shut down Severino last week after he went through his normal throwing program to start spring training. “[Severino] has acknowledged and agreed […]
