NY Yankees

Greg Bird homered twice and Masahiro Tanaka continued his scoreless spring, keeping the Phillies off the scoreboard for 5 1/3 innings in a 7-3 Yankees win Wednesday at Spectrum Field.
Yankees ace Masahiro Tanaka continued his scoreless spring Wednesday, keeping the Phillies off the board through 5 1/3 innings in a 7-3 Grapefruit League victory at Spectrum Field. The outing ran Tanaka's total to 18 2/3 scoreless frames in five spring starts.
"For me, baseball sets a stage to do something special in the world," Yanks No. 3 prospect Blake Rutherford said.

Dallas Green, manager of the 1980 World Series champion Philadelphia Phillies and a baseball renaissance man who held nearly every possible title during his five-plus decades in the game, died Wednesday. He was 82.
Greg Bird has answered all of the Yankees' questions after missing all of last season with a right shoulder injury, and the organization plans to give him a long look as the everyday first baseman this season.
Nobody in the game rode taller in the saddle than Dallas Green. Not 6-foot-7 Frank Howard nor 6-foot-11 Jon Rauch. Dallas Green was baseball's John Wayne, so upright and rigid and with such a commanding voice.
Didi Gregorius is expected to miss the first month of the regular season with a strained subscapularis muscle in his throwing shoulder, the Yankees said on Tuesday.

A new uniform did not alter Chris Sale's dominance of the Yankees, as the left-hander struck out 10 over six strong innings on Tuesday, leading the Red Sox to a 4-2 Grapefruit League victory at George M. Steinbrenner Field.
The Yankees believe that it is only a matter of time before Gleyber Torres makes an impact in the big leagues, but they are not ready to start that clock just yet.
Gear up for Spring Training with updated authentic caps, jerseys, socks and more, and wear what your favorite Yankees are wearing.
For Dellin Betances, representing the Dominican Republic in the World Baseball Classic was a more special experience than he had imagined.
Greg Bird's cat is related to Mr. Bigglesworth
From baseball's brightest stars to the next great fantasy steal lurking on the Yankees' depth chart, everything you need to know is one click away.
The Nationals sold out the Ballpark of the Palm Beaches for the first time in its short history, as 7,675 fans were in attendance for Monday afternoon's matchup with the Yankees. Brett Gardner drove in a pair with a two-run single in the second and Matt Holliday launched a two-run home run as New York came away with a 9-3 victory.
The phone call that changed Tyler Wade's career path was made from the manager's office late in the 2015 season, after Joe Girardi had several head-to-head opportunities to see Brock Holt's impact as a super-utility player with the Red Sox.
Chase Headley plated two runs with a double and scored another on a steal of home, and the Yankees won it in the ninth when two runs scored on a bases-loaded wild pitch for a 6-4 victory over the Astros at the Ballpark of the Palm Beaches on Sunday afternoon.
One of the most impressive Yankees this Spring Training was not even included on the original roster for big league camp. Billy McKinney has taken advantage of an unexpected opportunity.
As the Yankees complete each turn through their spring rotation, CC Sabathia is growing more excited about what the regular season could hold.
After taking a year off to fine-tune his mechanics, Ernesto Frieri says that he has rediscovered his 2013 form, when he recorded 37 saves and was one of the better relievers in the American League.
Chris Johnson, Pedro Alvarez and Aneury Tavarez each homered to power the Orioles past the Yankees, 5-4, on Saturday at George M. Steinbrenner Field.
Masahiro Tanaka continued his spring-long mastery of the Tigers, then Chasen Shreve and Jordan Montgomery kept it going, sending the Yankees on their way to a combined no-hitter in a 3-0 win on Friday at Publix Field at Joker Marchant Stadium.
Yankees right-hander Masahiro Tanaka continued his superb spring with 4 1/3 fantastic innings against the Tigers on Friday at Publix Field at Joker Marchant Stadium, setting the tone for a 3-0 win in which three Yankees pitchers no-hit Detroit. The no-hitter was New York's first during Spring Training since 1983, and with the effort, Tanaka ran his Grapefruit League total to 13 1/3 scoreless frames.
There was no over-the-top celebration after Jordan Montgomery recorded the final outs of a combined Grapefruit League no-hitter on Friday afternoon, but the real reward may still be yet to come.
Jorge Mateo had been planning on taking a bus ride with the Yankees' big league squad. Instead, the infielder's morning included a brief chat with manager Joe Girardi and a trip across the street to the team's Minor League complex.
Sure, no one is going to remember all that much about a Spring Training no-hitter. Memories will fade. Everyone will move on.
A pair of top 20 overall prospects -- Michael Kopech and Francis Martes -- put together dominant outings on the mound and were among Friday's top prospect performers.
James Kaprielian's first appearance of the spring is also expected to be his last, though for the Yankees, it served as a tantalizing preview of what the right-hander might show in the big leagues very soon.
One month has passed since we took a stab at the 25-man roster that will appear on the third-base line on April 2, when the Yankees open the 2017 season against the Rays at Tropicana Field.
Aaron Hicks, Starlin Castro, Rob Refsnyder and Clint Frazier went yard, and Yankees top pitching prospect James Kaprielian turned in two scoreless innings, paving the way for New York's 11-5 Grapefruit League win over the Blue Jays on Thursday afternoon at Florida Auto Exchange Stadium.
This is exactly what the New York Yankees had hoped to see from all these young players. That's the story of their Spring Training. Optimism abounds.


NY Mets

Curtis Granderson hit a pair of homers and drove in five runs, but Tyler Moore also knocked two long balls, including the go-ahead shot in the eighth inning, in the Marlins' 15-9 win over the Mets on Wednesday at First Data Field.
Mets left-hander Steven Matz has been sharp during the Grapefruit League. He is healthy after last year's elbow surgery, his velocity has been good and the results, though not worth much in Spring Training, have been relatively strong.
Puerto Rico starter Seth Lugo struggled to keep the U.S. bats in check, however, going four-plus innings, giving up four runs on five hits, while walking four and striking out seven.

The Mets welcomed some familiar and important faces back to their lineup on Wednesday. After some time away from playing in the Grapefruit League, third baseman Jose Reyes, closer Jeurys Familia and right fielder Jay Bruce were all back in action in a 15-9 loss to the Marlins at First Data Field.
Dallas Green, manager of the 1980 World Series champion Philadelphia Phillies and a baseball renaissance man who held nearly every possible title during his five-plus decades in the game, died Wednesday. He was 82.
