NY Yankees

CC Sabathia got back on track and Jacoby Ellsbury hit a two-run home run to open up a close game en route to a 5-1 Yankees win over the Mariners on Tuesday night at Safeco Field. The Yankees evened the three-game series at a game apiece and knocked the Mariners back to two games out of the second American League Wild Card spot.
The nights are getting shorter, October is getting closer, and the big man was dealing again.
Closer Dellin Betances discusses his path to pinstripes and how his dream of playing for his hometown team came true.
When the Yankees traded for Didi Gregorius to replace Derek Jeter at shortstop and later signed Starlin Castro to play second base, they knew what they were getting: solid defense and the potential to supplement those gloves with occasional offense.
They might have been five-year teammates for the Tohoku Rakuten Golden Eagles in Japan, but on Wednesday afternoon, Masahiro Tanaka of the Yankees and Hisashi Iwakuma of the Mariners will be adversaries on the mound in the finale of the three-game series between the two teams at Safeco Field.
The Yankees are ready to help one of their own.

Not even a pair of home runs apiece by the Yankees' Gary Sanchez and Starlin Castro could derail the Mariners on Monday night at Safeco Field as Seattle rode a pair of three-run blasts by Kyle Seager and Mike Zunino to a 7-5 series-opening win.
Joe DiMaggio amassed a 56-game hitting streak 75 years ago. Top that in Beat the Streak, and $5.6 million is yours.
The day Yankees rookie catcher Gary Sanchez was named American League Player of the Week, he hit two home runs, combining for three RBIs, in his first three at-bats.
Dodgers No. 2 prospect Jose De Leon and Giants No. 22 prospect Austin Slater were among the top prospect performers in the Minors Monday.
Chad Green didn't have a feel for his cutter on Sunday, but he didn't need it to hold the Angels to just one run in six innings. Unfortunately for the rookie, that one run was all the Angels needed as they handed the Yankees a 2-0 loss in the finale of the weekend series.
MLBPipeline.com's Prospect Team of the Week honors the best performances from the previous seven days. Any player currently on an organization Top 30 Prospects list on our Prospect Watch is eligible, including big leaguers.
Less than 24 hours after Brett Gardner went horizontal to rob the Angels of a homer, Jacoby Ellsbury made a leaping grab of his own over the center-field wall to rob Albert Pujols of a historic home run.
Jhoulys Chacin won his first start in over two months as the Angels scrapped their way to a 2-0 shutout of the Yankees on Sunday afternoon at Angel Stadium, avoiding a season series sweep.
Garret Anderson was inducted to the Angels Hall of Fame on Saturday, but it was another left fielder, the Yankees' Brett Gardner, who might have drawn the loudest cheer of the night.
The nerves were with him the whole time, but as Luis Cessa took the mound for his first start with the Yankees and threw that first pitch to Kole Calhoun, it all faded away. Cessa would go on to throw six-plus scoreless innings and insert his name into the list of young Yankees to know.
On a night when the Angels inducted a 17-year Major League veteran into their Hall of Fame, it was the Yankees' youth movement that stole the show. The Yankees once again got major contributions from a number of rookies and rolled to a 5-1 win over the Angels on Saturday at Angel Stadium.
A day after the game of his life, Ronald Torreyes found himself in the Yankees' starting lineup again on Saturday against the Angels, with Chase Headley still slowed by Achilles tendinitis.
As one of the younger everyday players at the Triple-A level, Rio Ruiz has been anything but overmatched this season.
Home runs came for the Yankees from both the top and bottom of the lineup, plus multiple places in between, as they shut out the Angels, 7-0, on Friday night at Angel Stadium to open a three-game series.
Friday's series opener at Angel Stadium was the first time Masahiro Tanaka and rookie catcher Gary Sanchez teamed up, and the new combination worked out pretty well, as Tanaka threw 7 2/3 impressive innings in a 7-0 runaway win over the Angels.
Yankees right-hander Nathan Eovaldi underwent successful Tommy John surgery, as well as a right flexor tendon repair, on Friday.
The Yankees are getting younger. But none of this is new to Starlin Castro, who saw the same kind of moves happen when he was still with the Cubs.
With the weeks that Gary Sanchez and Aaron Judge have had, it's been hard to update the Yankees' record book fast enough.
When J.A. Happ pitches well, the Blue Jays win. When the offense shows off its potential, the Blue Jays win. When both happen, that's just a good day. After scoring 12 unanswered runs in Tuesday's victory, the Toronto offense picked up right where it left off Wednesday afternoon, getting runners on base at a high rate and beating the Yankees, 7-4.
Yankees' Triple-A team will be Pierogies for a night
It happened in an instant, a pair of home runs sailing over the wall at Yankee Stadium. In that moment with a packed house rocking the ballpark in that old, familiar way, Yankees managing general partner Hal Steinbrenner could see a bright and shiny new vision of his team take shape.
At first glance, it will look like the Yankees' 7-4 loss to the Blue Jays on Wednesday was mostly on CC Sabathia. He allowed seven earned runs, after all. Sabathia did make mistakes, like the 0-1 sinker that Melvin Upton Jr. deposited over the right-field wall in the fifth. But before that, Sabathia was the unlucky recipient of some questionable defense that allowed Toronto to claim easy bases.
Earlier this week, Alex Rodriguez's publicist released a statement saying the 14-time All-Star will not play again this season, following his release from the Yankees. Now it seems likely that Rodriguez won't be suiting up in 2017, either.
Mariano Rivera made his legacy pitching in clutch moments. Thanks in large part to those moments, the Yankees honored Rivera's 19-year career Sunday by enshrining him with a plaque in Monument Park.
After a rain delay, the Blue Jays scored 12 unanswered runs against the Yankees to erase a six-run deficit and reclaim sole possesion of first place in the American League East with a 12-6 victory at Yankee Stadium on Tuesday night.
He boarded the subway late Monday after a hard night's work. Chad Green had dazzled at Yankee Stadium against the Blue Jays, and now his wife and Luis Cessa joined him on the way back to the hotel.
As the saying goes, when it rains, it pours. But sometimes, it keeps pouring even after the rain has stopped.

NY Mets

Though starter Jonathon Niese lasted only 21 pitches before an achy left knee forced him to the clubhouse, the Mets, behind a pair of early home runs and an exhaustive effort from the bullpen, nabbed a 7-4 victory over the Cardinals on Tuesday night at Busch Stadium. The win cut into the Cardinals' advantage over New York for the second National League Wild Card spot, too. The Mets' deficit in that race now sits at 3 1/2 games.
Jonathon Niese's night was as ineffective as it was brief. Robert Gsellman saved him and the Mets in his big league debut. In the process, Gsellman appears to have taken over Niese's job.
It's a trivia question worthy of any bar or break room: Which Met hit the longest home run since Statcast™ began keeping track at the start of the 2015 season?
Despite placing pitcher Steven Matz on the disabled list this week, the Mets are optimistic that Matz will miss just one additional start. Matz, who skipped his last outing due to left shoulder soreness, will also be absent for Thursday's game in St. Louis. But he is eligible to return from the DL on Aug. 30, and the Mets tentatively expect him to pitch that day.

Congratulations were in order Tuesday for Mets second baseman Neil Walker and his wife, who welcomed a baby girl, Nora Vail Walker, into the world at 3:06 a.m. ET.
Who do the Mets have in the pipeline? Get scouting reports, video, stats, projected ETAs and more for New York's Top 30 Prospects on MLBPipeline.com's Prospect Watch.
Cardinals starter Carlos Martinez has struggled to post consistent outings this season. He'll face off with Jacob deGrom, who is coming off a poor start but has found more success in 2016, when the pair meets in the second game of a three-game set at Busch Stadium on Wednesday. The Mets are trying to gain ground on the Cards, who lead them by 3 1/2 games in the race for the second National League Wild Card spot.
Joe DiMaggio amassed a 56-game hitting streak 75 years ago. Top that in Beat the Streak, and $5.6 million is yours.
If the Mets' scuffling bullpen is to improve down the stretch, the club will need it to improve from within. The team is no longer seriously pursuing bullpen arms from outside the organization, according to a person with knowledge of the club's thinking.
