NY Yankees

Yankees No. 2 prospect Gleyber Torres was named Arizona Fall League Player of the Week after the Scottsdale Scorpions shortstop showcased his hitting skills during the second week of games.
As they prepare to face off in what promises to be a historic World Series, Aroldis Chapman and Andrew Miller have heard no regrets from their new employers, fitting in just fine after the Cubs and Indians stripped them of their Yankees pinstripes in a pair of midseason blockbuster trades.
After months of anticipation, the Kraken was finally unleashed in the Bronx in 2016, when rookie Gary Sanchez put on a show.
Gary Sanchez and the Baby Bombers, plus Mark Teixeira, are vying for top honors in the 2016 Esurance MLB Awards. Vote to help the Yankees win big.
Healthy again, Dillon Tate is getting some extra work as a reliever with the Arizona Fall League's Scottsdale Scorpions. Though he gave up four runs in five innings over his first four appearances, he has flashed the fastball and slider that made him the first first-round pick in UC Santa Barbara history and earned him a $4.2 million bonus.
Yankee Stadium is set to undergo its first series of major design enhancements this offseason, including the addition of the Sunrun Kids Clubhouse, which will be located on the 300 level in right field and is the stadium's first-ever children's zone.
Voting is underway through Nov. 11 at MLB.com/awards to help decide who wins Best Rookie regardless of league affiliation, and all five of your candidates are currently playing key roles in pennant races: Tigers right-hander Michael Fulmer, Indians center fielder Tyler Naquin, Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez, Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager and Nationals center fielder Trea Turner.
Japanese pitcher Hiroki Kuroda, who spent seven seasons in the Major Leagues, announced Tuesday he will retire at the end of the season.

Brian McCann strapped on his shin guards for the final time this season on Oct. 1 as the Yankees put the finishing touches on a 7-3 victory over the Orioles, catching the ninth inning after coming off the bench as a pinch-hitter. It remains to be seen whether that was McCann's final game in pinstripes or a sign of things to come in 2017.
Gleyber Torres may be one of the younger players in this year's Arizona Fall League, but you would never know it based on the 19-year-old shortstop's impressive showing in the season's first week. The Yankees' No. 2 prospect delivered a bases-loaded walk-off single to lead Scottsdale past Glendale, 8-7, on Friday.
The oral history of baseball on Seinfeld is essential
The thought was presented to Adam Warren, one day after the math no longer added up for the Yankees in postseason chase. Should things break right this October, he still might wind up with a World Series ring, having spent the season's first four months with the Cubs.
The New York Yankees announced that Tuesday left-handed pitcher CC Sabathia underwent arthroscopic surgery for a routine cleanup in his right knee.
The Scottsdale Scorpions may have come up short in their contest against Salt River on Wednesday night, losing 6-4, but it was still a big night for a host of New York Yankees prospects.
New York already had a strong farm system, and the deals they pursued made it one of baseball's best and arguably its deepest. That depth is on display in the Yankees' instructional league camp, which opened Sept. 18 and runs through Friday in Tampa, Fla.
Gary Sanchez was named one of the Yankees' Prospects of the Year and Chance Adams was selected as MLBPipeline's Yankees Pitcher of the Year.
The spotlight may shine on the Arizona Fall League more than ever in the prospect circuit's 25th season. Usually packed with phenoms, the league has even more blue-chip prospects than usual. And, as you may have heard, a certain Heisman Trophy winner will take the next step in his baseball development with the Scottsdale Scorpions.
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.
Yankees general manager Brian Cashman and manager Joe Girardi are heading into the final year of their respective contracts in 2017, and neither of them are expected to be extended until that season ends, Cashman said on Wednesday.
As the Yankees prepared to open their final series of the regular season, manager Joe Girardi closed the clubhouse so he could address the members of his roster, many of whom will be expected to play key roles when the team reassembles next spring in Florida.
The National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum announced Monday that 10 individuals have been named to the Today's Game Era ballot, to be voted on during the Winter Meetings in December.
The Yankees were forced to make a hard pivot quickly in late July, as an extended losing skid forced management to look in the mirror. Ultimately, they realized that their roster no longer seemed equipped to stand out in the ultra-competitive American League East.
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. It ended on Sunday in the Bronx, where the slugger said he will always consider himself a Yankee.
Led by two homers from catcher Matt Wieters, the O's clinched an American League Wild Card spot with a 5-2 series victory over New York in Sunday's regular-season finale at Yankee Stadium.
Butler and McCann raced for title of slowest Yankee
The grainy, black-and-white images of Roger Maris hitting his record-breaking 61st home run flickered across Yankee Stadium's high-definition video screen on Saturday. Fifty-five years to the date of the event, the slugger's family gathered at home plate and said they felt goosebumps.
Aaron Judge started his Yankees career in memorable fashion, hitting a tape-measure home run in his first Major League plate appearance, but the touted prospect recognizes that he will need to do more to earn a place in the starting lineup next year.
For most of his Yankees career, Mark Teixeira has been walking to home plate accompanied by Twisted Sister's 1984 hit, "I Wanna Rock." He finally has the right gear to do just that.
The Orioles took this run for the postseason down to the final week. Now it will go down to the final day. Austin Romine's two-run single off Brad Brach broke an eighth-inning tie and sent the Yankees to a 7-3 win Saturday at Yankee Stadium, ending any chance the Orioles had to clinch an American League Wild Card spot with a day to spare.
The Orioles are doing everything in their power to secure a postseason spot. Led by Jonathan Schoop, who homered and matched a career high with five RBIs, the Orioles bashed their way to an 8-1 win over the Yankees on Friday night, whittling their magic number to two in the process.
Seven weeks to the date of his final game in a Yankees uniform, Alex Rodriguez was back in his pinstripes on Friday, working with instructional league prospects at the team's Minor League complex in Tampa, Fla.
The Yankees recognize that they are heading for their third October in four years that will not include a playoff game, but manager Joe Girardi wants his club to embrace a spoiler role in the final three contests of the season.
On the evening that the Yankees' playoff hopes met their end, CC Sabathia completed his season on a strong note, striking out eight over 7 1/3 efficient frames in a 5-1 victory to complete a three-game sweep of the Red Sox on Thursday night at Yankee Stadium.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
