NY Yankees

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.
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.
After missing 2015 due to injury, Ian Clarkin has returned as a transformed pitcher.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

Joe DiMaggio did not waste much time creating more history on Friday afternoon. His awe-inspiring hitting streak continued, despite a loss by his Yankees team that might have hurt more on the field than it did in the standings.
Joe DiMaggio amassed a 56-game hitting streak 75 years ago. Top that in Beat the Streak, and $5.6 million is yours.
In May, Yankees right-hander Nathan Eovaldi took five steps forward. But in June, he's followed that with five steps back.
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. As a countering move, the Yankees optioned Nick Goody to Triple-A.
Nationals No. 5 prospect Reynaldo Lopez is among the top prospect performers in the Minors Saturday.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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).
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
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.
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.
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

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.
The Mets are considering skipping Steven Matz's start Wednesday against the Nationals due to continued left elbow soreness. Matz traveled back to New York to see a doctor on Monday before rejoining the Mets in Washington.
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.
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.
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.
Yulieski Gurriel posed for the camera in a Mets T-shirt, shorts and cap, sitting at a locker with his nameplate above it. Gurriel may not be a Mets employee, but the organization is at least going through the proper avenues to ensure that he could become one.
Mets outfielder Juan Lagares will begin a Minor League rehab assignment Tuesday for Double-A Binghamton, perhaps putting struggling backup Alejandro De Aza on notice.
Joe DiMaggio amassed a 56-game hitting streak 75 years ago. Top that in Beat the Streak, and $5.6 million is yours.
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.
The Mets continued the process of signing their Draft picks on Monday, inking second-rounder Pete Alonso to a below-slot deal of $909,200, according to MLBPipeline.com's Jim Callis. Alonso, a first baseman from the University of Florida, hit .374 with 14 homers in 58 games for the Gators.
