Ryu sharp as Blue Jays top Yankees

Hyun Jin Ryu cruised into the seventh inning, Marcus Semien and Rowdy Tellez homered, and the Toronto Blue Jays defeated the New York Yankees 7-3 on Tuesday night. Ryu (1-1) permitted only an unearned run over 6 2/3 innings, striking out seven and limiting the Yankees to four hits and a walk. The Blue Jays ace retired 12 in a row after DJ LeMahieu had a leadoff infield single in the first. “Vintage Ryu,” Toronto manager Charlie Montoyo said. “When he takes the mound, we know we have a good chance to win. Ryu threw 68 of 95 pitches for strikes. “The way it plays during the game, I see which […]

New York Yankees put Corey Kluber second behind Gerrit Cole in rotation

Corey Kluber will follow ace Gerrit Cole in the New York Yankees’ rotation, and Jameson Taillon will be skipped the first time through as the team builds him up slowly in his return following Tommy John surgery. Cole will start Thursday’s opener against Toronto at Yankee Stadium and Kluber, returning from two injury-filled seasons, will start Saturday against the Blue Jays. “When he’s at his best, he’s kind of masterful and precise,” Yankees manager Aaron Boone said. “We’ve seen all that flash this spring.” A 34-year-old righty, Kluber signed an $11 million, one-year contract with the Yankees, his third team in three years, The two-time Cy […]

Yanks star Stanton off to strong start after smashing finish

Giancarlo Stanton is picking up where he finished the postseason last year. Healthy and hard hitting. The New York Yankees slugger homered in each of his first five playoff matches in 2020, a stretch that brought flashbacks of his spectacular 2017 NL MVP season and hopes that several injury-impacted years were behind him. Stanton ended with six homers and 13 RBI in seven postseason games, including a tough five-game Division Series loss to the AL champion Tampa Bay Rays. Stanton is 7 for 21 during spring training with two doubles and a homer that had an exit velocity of 115 mph. He also hit […]

New York Yankees’ Luis Severino throws off mound for 1st time since elbow surgery

New York Yankees pitcher Luis Severino has thrown off a mound for the first time since Tommy John surgery on Feb. 27, 2020. Yankees manager Aaron Boone said the 27-year-old right-hander threw 20 pitches, all fastballs, during a bullpen session Tuesday. “It was a lot of fun for me to get over there on Tuesday morning to be there to see that first one and just to see how he’s moving around,” Boone stated before Thursday’s exhibition game versus Philadelphia in Clearwater. “There’s just a confidence in that he’s kind of exuding in his health, just watching him play catch, the way his […]

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 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 […]

Toronto Blue Jays clinch playoff spot

The Toronto Blue Jays have clinched a spot in the postseason for the first time since 2016 with Thursday’s 4-1 victory over the Yankees at Sahlen Field in Buffalo, N.Y., and now the real fun begins. While Ryu and contributions from the young core perfectly fit the Blue Jays’ plan to return to the postseason, so many other parts to this story don’t. This will be the first and, hopefully, the last time that Toronto clinches with just its 30th victory of a shortened season, and no one ever expected this celebration to take place in Buffalo. It might all […]

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 […]

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 […]

Yankees shut down Luis Severino with forearm soreness

New York Yankees starter Luis Severino has been shut down with soreness in his right forearm. Yankees manager Aaron Boone told reporters Thursday that the right-hander will see Dr. Chris Ahmad, the team’s physician, Friday. However, GM Brian Cashman told reporters Severino won’t see the team doctor, adding that he’s uncertain if this is a short or long-term issue. Boone noted Severino has a loose body in his pitching elbow and that the soreness dates back to his last playoff start versus the Houston Astros on Oct. 15. Last year was a mess for Severino. After heading into the season with high expectations, he was immediately shut down in spring […]
