Teen baseball prospect Elian Soto verbally agrees to join Washington Nationals

Elian Soto, Juan Soto’s younger sibling, has verbally agreed to join his brother’s Washington Nationals just days after declaring his intentions to sign with the New York Mets. Elian Soto, a 16-year-old outfielder and third baseman, wouldn’t be eligible to formally sign until next year’s international free agent class in January 2023. The younger Soto posted an Instagram video of him working out in full Mets gear on Dec. 31 and had reportedly been given a $50,000 bonus but has since changed course. Soto’s decision was first reported by Washington City Paper. The Nationals’ offer is believed to be bigger. The discrepancy in money […]

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. Looking for the best online betting site […]

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 […]

New York Yankees unsure of injury progress due to MLB lockout

Major League Baseball’s lockout has left the Yankees unaware of how DJ LeMahieu, Aaron Hicks, Jameson Taillon and Darren O’Day are progressing following surgery. Hicks, rehabbing from a May 26 operation to repair a torn tendon sheath in his left wrist, hit .265 (13-for-49) in 12 matches with Leones del Escogido of the Dominican Winter League in late November and early December. He had one homer, nine RBIs, four walks, 10 strikeouts and two steals. LeMahieu had sports hernia surgery on Oct. 12, Taillon right ankle tendon surgery on Oct. 28 and O’Day had left hamstring surgery on July 21, the same day outfielder Tim Locastro had surgery […]

Moments after winning their 16th consecutive game, the Phoenix Suns could be heard clapping and shouting in celebration of their latest triumph on their way into the visitor’s locker room at Barclays Center. “We run New York!” one member of the Suns team could be heard shouting in the hallway.

The victory came one night after the Suns beat the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden. Now Phoenix will try […]

New York Yankees release outfielder Clint Frazier, infielder Rougned Odor

Outfielder Clint Frazier and infielder Rougned Odor were released by the New York Yankees on Tuesday after they were designated for assignment four days ago and went unclaimed on waivers. The 27-year-old Frazier was the fifth pick overall in the 2013 amateur draft by Cleveland and was a prized prospect when he was obtained by the Yankees in a July 2016 trade that sent reliever Andrew Miller to the Indians. Frazier made his major league debut in July 2017, but the outfielder never has had more than 246 plate appearances in a campaign. His 2018 season was wrecked when he collided with an outfield […]

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 […]

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 […]

State Upholds Race Ban for McPeek Tied to Quarantine

New York State regulators denied a bid for a declaratory relief by trainer Kenny McPeek,who argued that a steward made an “arbitrary and capricious” decision that kept seven of his horses from racing in the days after an equine herpesvirus-1 quarantine ended last summer at Saratoga Race Course. The state Gaming Commission unanimously sided with Peter Moschetti Jr.— a board member of the commission —who on Oct. 28 ruled versus McPeek’s appeal of the steward’s decision to restrict the trainer from entering the horses Aug. 1, 3 and 4 after a quarantine at Saratoga’s Barn 86 had ended. An outbreak of […]
