Girardi not pleased with lengthy rain delay It was raining all night. It even rained into the morning. But it wasn't until the top of the ninth inning of Monday's 9-6 Yankees loss the Rangers that the rain was deemed too much. Prospect Watch: Ian Clarkin After missing 2015 due to injury, Ian Clarkin has returned as a transformed pitcher.

Umps applied MLB rule to Rangers-Yanks delay Major League Baseball rules are specific regarding the situation that occurred when Monday night's Rangers-Yankees game was delayed for three hours and 35 minutes for rain before Texas rallied for a 9-6 victory. Yankees fan's unique headwear repels rain Yankees fan's unique headwear repels rain A-Rod sitting or starting a day-to-day decision For the second straight day, Yankees manager Joe Girardi elected not to start Alex Rodriguez as his designated hitter for Monday's series opener against the Rangers. But that isn't likely to be the case moving forward. Beltran needs big boost in final days of voting Only two Yankees, Carlos Beltran and Brian McCann, ranked high enough in votes to be listed as potential starters in the final 2016 Esurance MLB All-Star Game Ballot update, and both are long shots. 2016 Draft: Signing and bonus tracker Stay up to date on all the 2016 Draft signings as they happen with MLB Pipeline's signing and bonus tracker -- a complete breakdown of which picks from the first 10 rounds have agreed to terms, along with their reported bonuses and starting assignments. DiMaggio 1 shy of Sisler after foiling Babich's plan Johnny Babich learned something about Joe DiMaggio on Saturday afternoon, and he learned it the hard way. The lesson taught by the sensational Yankees center fielder? Don't get me angry. Hit in 57 games, win $5.6 million Joe DiMaggio amassed a 56-game hitting streak 75 years ago. Top that in Beat the Streak, and $5.6 million is yours. CC, Hamels set for southpaw showdown Coming off a down start against the Rockies, Yankees left-hander CC Sabathia (5-4, 2.71 ERA) hopes to get back on track against the Rangers on Tuesday. He'll pitch opposite fellow left-hander Cole Hamels (8-1, 2.79 ERA), who has never recorded a win against the Yankees. Judge, Acevedo among top prospect performers Monday Cubs prospects Ian Happ and Billy McKinney were among the top prospect performers Monday in the Minors. Teixeira snaps career-long HR drought Mark Teixeira slugged his fourth home run of the year in the eighth inning off the Twins' Tyler Duffey, accounting for New York's only run in a 7-1 loss. It was Teixeira's first homer since April 13 at Toronto, a span of 147 at-bats that represents the longest drought of his career. Judge leads MLB Pipeline's Prospect Team of the Week Aaron Judge seems to have solved Triple-A pitching in June. He's hitting a robust .345/.467/.701 with more homers (eight) and walks (17) than he had in his first two months of this season combined. He led the Minors with five homers and 29 total bases last week, and he could take over in right field for New York should the Yankees go into sell mode and trade the resurgent Carlos Beltran. Yankees, StubHub agree to multiyear deal The Yankees and Stubhub announced on Monday that they have reached agreement on a multiyear sponsorship deal, designating the company as the team's official fan-to-fan ticket resale marketplace. Tex connects, but long ball stings Eovaldi Tyler Duffey carried a perfect game into the sixth inning, supported by consecutive home runs off the bats of Brian Dozier, Trevor Plouffe and Max Kepler, leading the Twins to a 7-1 victory over the Yankees on Sunday at Yankee Stadium. Eovaldi's rocky June extended with 4 HRs In May, Yankees right-hander Nathan Eovaldi took five steps forward. But in June, he's followed that with five steps back. Yankees recall Cessa, send down Goody Right-hander Luis Cessa, who opened the season in the big leagues and made a brief return to the squad toward the end of May, was recalled Sunday to bolster the bullpen in a wide variety of roles.

Judge among top prospect performers Saturday Nationals No. 5 prospect Reynaldo Lopez is among the top prospect performers in the Minors Saturday. Pineda changes up mix in rematch with Twins As right-hander Michael Pineda showed Saturday afternoon in the Yankees' 2-1 win over the Twins, his good days are as good as anyone's in the rotation. Yanks pounce on late error as arms lead way Though the Yankees struggled to cobble together offense against the Twins on Saturday afternoon, they came away with a 2-1 win at Yankee Stadium after Eduardo Escobar booted a grounder off the bat of Starlin Castro in the eighth inning, allowing Aaron Hicks to score the go-ahead run. Teixeira back from DL, seeks spark from bat As expected, the Yankees activated first baseman Mark Teixeira from the disabled list on Saturday. In a corresponding move, first baseman Ike Davis was designated for assignment. Yankees host Pitch, Hit & Run at Stadium When a group of 24 children descended onto the Yankee Stadium infield grass Saturday morning to compete in the Scotts MLB's Pitch, Hit & Run event, the anxiety and nerves could be felt reverberating throughout the park. Brett Gardner picks up Yankees fans' fry bucket Brett Gardner picks up Yankees fans' fry bucket Chapman lights up radar gun, Statcast leaderboard Chapman lights up radar gun, Statcast leaderboard Refsnyder continues surge with go-ahead hit Tommy Milone was avoiding Rob Refsnyder. By the time the rookie utility player's third at-bat came around in the fourth inning of the Yankees' 5-3 victory over the Twins on Friday night, Refsnyder hadn't yet gotten anything to hit. Milone had been working him away all game, mixing fastballs and changeups to keep him just off balance enough to force a strikeout and a flyout to center field. Tanaka, Yankees benefit from Twins miscues Despite an uncharacteristically laborious outing from ace Masahiro Tanaka, the Yankees capitalized on three Twins errors, plating three unearned runs on the way to a 5-3 series-opening victory over Minnesota on Friday at Yankee Stadium. Hicks finds power stroke vs. former club Once in a while, Aaron Hicks said, he'll shoot some of his old Twins teammates a text. But not too often. He's a Yankee now. So while he said it was "pretty crazy" to play against his former teammates Friday night at Yankee Stadium, he added it didn't make it feel extra special when he delivered the final dagger in the Yankees' 5-3 win with his eighth-inning solo home run. Mantle's sons throw out first pitch on dad's night David and Danny Mantle's childhood was full of trips to Major League stadiums, where they'd run around with all the other kids while their father, Mickey, went to work. It didn't seem out of the ordinary. Despite turnaround, Headley sees room to improve Since May 18, Yankees third baseman Chase Headley has posted a .308/.371/.452 line in 30 games. He said that he is pleased to have battled out of the worst slump of his career, but he still sees room for improvement, particularly with runners in scoring position (9-for-47, .191). Yankees agree with third-round pick Martinez The Yankees have signed third-round pick Nolan Martinez for a $1.15 million bonus, MLB.com's Jonathan Mayo reported on Thursday. The club has not confirmed the deal. Nick Swisher on life in the Minors and LeBron James Nick Swisher on life in the Minors and LeBron James Castro's walk-off HR caps Yanks' rally vs. Rox Starlin Castro hit a walk-off home run on the second pitch he saw from Jason Motte in the bottom of the ninth inning, lifting the Yankees to a 9-8 victory over the Rockies on Wednesday afternoon and earning a split of the two-game Interleague series at Yankee Stadium. Judge among top prospect performers Thursday Jose Berrios was absolutely dominant in Triple-A Rochester's 2-0 win over Columbus. Berrios (Twins' No. 1) is the No. 15 overall prospect, and after his electric outing, it's very clear why he's so highly regarded. Clutch blast breeds confidence for Castro Starlin Castro's career statistics have been a source of curiosity for the Yankees all season. Players with considerably more experience blinked hard when they realized the young infielder was already closing in on 1,000 hits, which he surpassed shortly after Opening Day. Even with all of those big league knocks, Castro had never experienced a walk-off home run prior to the Yankees' 9-8 victory over the Rockies on Wednesday. NY Mets Thor, Matz dealing with elbow spurs, still in rotation Mets right-hander Noah Syndergaard has a small spur in the back of his elbow, MLB.com's Anthony DiComo reported Tuesday, while lefty Steven Matz will be pushed back in the rotation one game due to a spur of his own. Matz, initially slated to start Wednesday against Washington, will now take the hill Thursday vs. the Cubs. Mets prospects Smith, Herrera named to Futures Game Perhaps the future right side of the Mets' infield for years to come, first baseman Dominic Smith and second baseman Dilson Herrera will represent the organization during the SiriusXM All-Star Futures Game in San Diego on July 10. Syndergaard can't protect early lead, slow down Nats The Nationals stole six bases and scored 11 unanswered runs to storm back from an early deficit and defeat the Mets, 11-4, on Monday night at Nationals Park. Less than 3 days left to cast your All-Star vote Help pick who will be in the lineups in San Diego on July 12. Cast your Esurance MLB All-Star Ballot up to 5 times in any 24-hour period. Yo has chance to be top vote-getting NL OF Yoenis Cespedes is charging forward hard enough in All-Star Game voting that he has a chance not only to make the team, but also to become the most popular National League outfielder on the ballot. Harvey squares off with No. 1 prospect Giolito in DC When top prospect Lucas Giolito makes his Major League debut Tuesday, he'll have himself a high-pressure assignment. Giolito, whom MLBPipeline.com ranks as the No. 1 prospect in all of baseball, will take on Matt Harvey and the defending National League champion Mets in the second of a three-game series at Nationals Park. Becerra among top prospect performers Monday Cubs prospects Ian Happ and Billy McKinney were among the top prospect performers Monday in the Minors. Hit in 57 games, win $5.6 million Joe DiMaggio amassed a 56-game hitting streak 75 years ago. Top that in Beat the Streak, and $5.6 million is yours. 2016 Draft: Signing and bonus tracker Stay up to date on all the 2016 Draft signings as they happen with MLB Pipeline's signing and bonus tracker -- a complete breakdown of which picks from the first 10 rounds have agreed to terms, along with their reported bonuses and starting assignments.
