Rothschild to return as Yanks pitching coach The Yankees have agreed to terms on a one-year contract with pitching coach Larry Rothschild, confirming that manager Joe Girardi's entire coaching staff will return for the 2017 season.

Tex says goodbye, will 'always be a Yankee' Mark Teixeira's baseball life started in a Maryland backyard, where his father, John, taught him how to switch-hit by raking Wiffle balls across the lawn.

Pineda, Yankees can't keep O's in the park The Orioles are doing everything in their power to secure a postseason spot.

Sabathia ends season with stellar outing The Yankees granted CC Sabathia's request to head back to the mound for one more out as the eighth inning began on Thursday, and once he returned to the dugout with his season's workload complete, pitching coach Larry Rothschild was waiting with a morsel of good news. Yanks eliminated in race for AL Wild Card The Yankees recognized that their chances of reaching the postseason had faded, most recently following a four-game sweep at Fenway Park and then certainly when they lost three of four games to the Blue Jays at Rogers Centre this past weekend. Teixeira has no second thoughts on retiring There are no second thoughts for Mark Teixeira as he rides out the final regular-season homestand of his career. When the Yankees' season ends after Sunday's game No. 162, he will be at peace, knowing that the aches have become too much to manage for another year. Yanks put aside rivalry, honor Big Papi The Yankees put the heat of their long-standing rivalry with the Red Sox aside for a few minutes on Thursday night with a thoughtful ceremony to honor David Ortiz, who was playing his 117th and final game in the Bronx. Teixeira's slam puts damper on Sox's party Mark Teixeira was the one mobbed by his teammates at home plate, hitting a walk-off grand slam off Joe Kelly in the bottom of the ninth inning to lift the Yankees to a 5-3 victory, but the Red Sox still clinched the American League East title on Wednesday evening at Yankee Stadium.

So it comes as little surprise that the 67-year-old Mets manager is beginning to talk about his future. Tebow reflects, then records some firsts A day after capturing headlines for tending to an ailing fan following the game, Tim Tebow discussed his eventful first day in the AFL and then recorded some firsts on the field for the Scottsdale Scorpions on Wednesday. Boras expects Harvey to be ready by Spring Training Though there is little precedent of pitchers returning from surgery to correct thoracic outlet syndrome, Matt Harvey took the first steps to doing so recently when he began playing catch in New York for the first time since his operation. Harvey's agent, Scott Boras, said Tuesday that he fully expects Harvey to be back to 100 percent by the start of Spring Training. Tebow aids ailing fan after Fall League debut Tim Tebow's Arizona Fall League debut lasted five and a half innings Tuesday afternoon, as the Mets' recent signee was removed in the sixth inning after grounding out three times, making one putout in left field and crashing into the wall on another attempt. But it was an incident after the game ended -- when he comforted a fan who appeared to suffer a seizure -- that had people talking.
