Ichiro Suzuki, as he has done his whole career, has found a place for himself within the Yankees' roster. He no longer competes for batting titles, but he continues to represent Japan in New York with pride, as Hideki Matsui did a decade ago and Masahiro Tanaka does today.
The Yankees on Sunday acquired Chaz Roe from the Marlins in exchange for cash. The 27-year-old has been in the Minor Leagues for most of the last 10 seasons but he could join the big league club as bullpen depth when rosters expand on Monday.
Jacoby Ellsbury was held out of the Yankees' starting lineup on Sunday for the second consecutive game with a sore left ankle. He did appear in the game, however, doubling as a pinch-hitter in the ninth inning of the Yanks' 4-3 loss to Toronto.
Michael Pineda pitched well but didn't get the support he needed from the Yankees' offense in a 2-0 loss to the Blue Jays on Saturday at Rogers Centre. New York was held to one one hit all afternoon -- Mark Teixeira's fourth-inning double.
Jacoby Ellsbury was originally ruled safe at home in the ninth inning of Friday's game between the Yankees and Blue Jays, but after Toronto challenged, the call was overturned. A crew chief review was then issued after Yankees manager Joe Girardi spoke with the umpires, but the replay showed no violation of Rule 7.13.
Left-hander Rich Hill was designated for assignment by the Yankees on Friday to make room for fellow southpaw Josh Outman on the active roster. The Yankees acquired Outman from the Indians on Thursday in exchange for a player to be named or cash considerations.
The catcher's glove popped with good velocity as Masahiro Tanaka worked off the mound on a sunny Thursday morning at Comerica Park, and while the hurler's stuff showed some rust, the Yankees came away with excitement about what might be around the corner.
The Yankees' hit parade couldn't wait until Labor Day. New York strung together nine straight hits to begin its eight-run third inning on Wednesday night against the Tigers, chasing former American League Cy Young Award winner David Price from the game in the process.
Another ritual in the march of Derek Jeter's final season occurred Wednesday night at Comerica Park as the Tigers honored the retiring Yankees shortstop. The ceremony begged the question: Who is going to take Jeter's place as baseball's primary role model, as the game's unofficial, but leading ambassador to the rest of humanity?
Masahiro Tanaka's next hurdle will come in the form of three simulated innings off the mound at Comerica Park on Thursday morning, and if he gets through that session with no issues, the right-hander's return will seem much more plausible.
The Yankees announced on Wednesday that they have pledged $100,000 to the ALS Association, in recognition of those who bravely live with ALS, those who have passed away from the condition and those around the world who have taken part in the Ice Bucket Challenge in an effort to raise awareness and funding to find a cure.
Beginning with leadoff man Jacoby Ellsbury, nine straight batters collected hits as the Yankees took a swing at the record books in the third inning Wednesday night at Comerica Park. The resulting eight-run inning sent David Price to the showers early as New York defeated the Tigers, 8-4, to move to within 2 1/2 games of Seattle for the second AL Wild Card spot.
Derek Jeter has been spending more time as the designated hitter of late, and while the retiring Yankees captain would prefer to be wearing his glove out to shortstop, he has been satisfied with staying in the lineup.
Seven Yankees prospects have been added to the preliminary rosters for this year's Arizona Fall League, which were released on Tuesday. Right-handers Caleb Cotham, Branden Pinder and Alex Smith, infielders Greg Bird and Eric Jagielo, and outfielders Tyler Austin and Aaron Judge have all been selected to play this fall with the Scottsdale Scorpions.
Brandon McCarthy didn't have razor-sharp command against the Tigers, who peppered the right-hander for nine hits over 6 1/3 innings in handing the Yankees a 5-2 loss on Tuesday night at Comerica Park in a game delayed more than an hour at the start due to rain.
The Mets will send Jon Niese to the mound for the middle game of their series with the Marlins on Tuesday at Marlins Park. Miami will counter with veteran Brad Penny, as it looks to gain ground in the National League Wild Card race.
For non-contending teams, September is a month for growth. The Mets know now that they won't be involved in postseason play. They are at peace with it. So over the season's final four weeks, they simply want to set themselves up as well as possible for 2015. Monday's Labor Day matinee at Marlins Park showcased exactly the type of thing they'd like to avoid going forward. The Mets committed a half-dozen defensive errors in a 9-6 loss to the Marlins, allowing the winning run to cross home on a wild pitch.
Terry Collins may not have expected such a scant number of teams to check in on starter Bartolo Colon prior to Sunday's waiver trade deadline, but the manager was unsurprised to learn that Colon would ultimately remain with the Mets.

The Mets headed to Miami following their 6-5 win over the Phillies on Sunday. Left-hander Josh Edgin and right-hander Daisuke Matsuzaka did not. Both relievers are staying in New York to have their problematic elbows examined by doctors.
For a moment Sunday afternoon at Citi Field -- before the Mets finished off the Phillies, 6-5 -- one Anthony Recker swing in the sixth inning eased the pains of a difficult season in Queens, his bat colliding with an A.J. Burnett breaking ball that never really broke, the ball soaring through the humid August air until it landed a half-dozen rows back in left field.
Amidst a month-long slump that has seen his strikeout rate (21.9 percent) rise above his batting average (.214), Curtis Granderson got a day off for the first time in 24 games Sunday in the Mets' series finale with the Phillies. Manager Terry Collins made his regular right fielder aware of the chance to "clear his mind a little bit" Sunday morning.
The ball sits atop Dilson Herrera's locker, dirtied and smacked around, just like dozens of others at Citi Field on Saturday. This one, though, is different. A slip of orange paper -- bound to the baseball by a rubber band -- designates its significance: Herrera's first Major League hit.
Sophomore goalkeeper MacKenzie Moranz made a diving save in the 107th minute of play to preserve Syracuse's 1-1 tie against rv/-- Connecticut in the squad's home opener at the SU Soccer Stadium. The Orange is now 1-1-2 on the season while the Huskies go to 2-1-1.

Saturday marked the beginning of the 2014 season for the Orange. 'Cuse finished the day splitting its two games with a 3-set sweep over Delaware State and a grind in which the Orange came up just short against Temple. The victory over DSU extends the Orange all-time record over the Hornets to 3-0 while Temple breaks the 7-7 deadlock to improve its record to 8-7 all-time against Syracuse.
