Yankees’ Judge walks off Astros for 2nd time in 4 days

Aaron Judge drove a three-run homer in the 10th inning for his second walk-off hit versus the Astros in four days, and the New York Yankees recovered after nearly being no-hit for the second consecutive game to defeat Houston 6-3 for a four-game split between the AL’s top teams. Giancarlo Stanton ended a historic hitless drought for New York with a one-out homer in the seventh inning, and DJ LeMahieu followed with a tying two-run drive in the eighth. After Michael King stranded the bases loaded in the 10th, Isiah Kiner-Falefa dropped a two-strike bunt that moved automatic runner Aaron Hicks to third. Right-hander Seth Martinez intentionally walked pinch-hitter Matt Carpenter and struck out LeMahieu, setting […]

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 […]

Minnesota Twins reinstate Carlos Correa from COVID-19 IL

The Minnesota Twins reinstated shortstop Carlos Correa from the COVID-19 injured list before their game versus the New York Yankees on Wednesday night, a small but significant step toward restoring their depleted roster to full strength. The AL Central-leading Twins conducted a soft launch, with Correa in the lineup as the designated hitter to face surging Yankees left-hander Nestor Cortes. “We do really miss him when he’s not here, the baseball discussions, the way he watches the game, all of those things,” manager Rocco Baldelli stated. Correa missed eight matches after testing positive while the team was in Detroit. He said his symptoms were strong, from headaches to chills […]

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?

Rays get 2 hits, both homers, top Yanks 4-2 for 4-game split

Taylor Walls and Ji-Man Choi homered for Tampa Bay’s only hits, and the Rays scored two runs in the seventh inning on four walks and a hit batter in a 4-2 victory over the New York Yankees on Sunday that gained a four-game split. Walls, in a 1 for 34 slide, homered on a 3-1 fastball from Luis Severino (3-1) for a 2-1 lead in the fifth and then made an outstanding defensive play at second to end the eighth inning. With a runner on third, Walls ranged to the shortstop side of the base, diving to grab Aaron Hicks’ grounder. Walls popped to his feet and threw […]

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.

Cortes takes no-hit bid into 8th, Yanks beat Rangers 1-0

Nestor Cortes may be the least-heralded top starting pitcher in the major leagues. The New York Yankees left-hander was five outs from a no-hitter when he threw his 103rd pitch, and No. 9 hitter Eli White looped a single into short center field. The 27-year-old Cortes, a regular starter in the major leagues since only last July, rocked back twice slightly and grinned with disappointment and satisfaction. “When the emotions and the adrenaline is rushing, everything feels great,” he said. “But now I feel like I got hit by a truck.” Cortes, Clay Holmes and Aroldis Chapman combined on a two-hitter, Anthony Rizzo doubled in a run in the eighth and the […]

Aaron Judge ‘disappointed’ after failing to reach extension with New York Yankees ahead of Opening Day deadline

Yankees right fielder Aaron Judge, speaking to reporters Friday, expressed frustration at not concluding a long-term contract extension with the club with which he wants to spend the rest of his major league career. “I’m just disappointed because I have been vocal about wanting to be a Yankee for life,” Judge stated after the Yankees’ 6-5 extra-innings win over the Boston Red Sox on Opening Day. “I want to bring a championship back to New York. I want to do it for the fans here. This is home for me. And I’m not getting that done right now. It stinks, but I got a job to […]

Aaron Judge says talks ongoing with New York Yankees about new contract

New York Yankees star Aaron Judge hopes fluid conversations on a one-year deal or a long-term contract can be completed before the team’s opener on April 7. Judge was disappointed a deal wasn’t reached before Tuesday’s deadline to swap proposed arbitration salaries. He asked for a raise from $10.175 million to $21 million, and the Yankees offered $17 million. The slugging outfielder is eligible to become a free agent after the World Series. “I think both sides, we want to come to an agreement,” Judge stated Wednesday. “I know both filed numbers but that doesn’t mean the communication stops. Hopefully, we can continue […]

Derek Jeter stepping down as Miami Marlins’ CEO, shareholder

Derek Jeter announced Monday that he has stepped down as CEO of the Miami Marlins, a decision that sent shockwaves through the industry on the day of Major League Baseball’s self-imposed deadline to conclude a new collective bargaining agreement and preserve the start of the regular season. In a statement sent through a news-release distributor rather than the Marlins, Jeter said “the vision for the future of the franchise is different than the one I signed up to lead. Now is the right time for me to step aside as a new season begins.” Jeter, the Hall of Fame shortstop who […]
