Yankees oust Aroldis Chapman from the closer’s role

Sat, 19 Aug 2017 23:21:16 GMT

The writing was on the wall, but the Yankees made it official on Saturday: Aroldis Chapman is no longer closing games for the Bronx Bombers. Comments from manager Joe Girardi suggested that the move is a temporary one, however, and he told reporters that Chapman will be utilized at “different points” in the game as the Yankees try to pinpoint the source of the left-hander’s struggles. It seems plausible that the left rotator cuff inflammation that sidelined him several months ago has resurfaced, but the veteran lefty said Friday that he doesn’t believe any physical issues have caused his decline.



Aaron Judge denies shoulder issue has impacted recent slump

Sun, 20 Aug 2017 23:11:53 GMT

There’s a reason New York Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge has been struggling since the All-Star break, and it’s not the Home Run Derby. Judge is reportedly dealing with a shoulder issue, but denied it has been impacting his performance.

Red Sox beat Yankees 5-1, move 5 up in AL East

Sun, 20 Aug 2017 22:42:36 GMT

Jackie Bradley Jr. knows all about the Fenway Park triangle, and how long it can take to get the ball back to the infield from the 420-foot marker. The two-run triple was all Boston needed, but Bradley added an RBI single in the sixth to help the Red Sox beat the Yankees 5-1 on Sunday and extend their margin in the AL East to five games. ''Jackie's been phenomenal, swinging the bat today, and doing what he did with 3 RBIs,'' said Boston starter Rick Porcello, who pitched six innings of a combined three-hitter.



Looking to boost a flimsy offense, Phillies give Jorge Alfaro a shot at first

Sun, 20 Aug 2017 00:15:30 GMT

BOSTON -- Aroldis Chapman is out as the New York Yankees closer. Yankees manager Joe Girardi said before Saturday night's game with the Boston Red Sox that the hard throwing lefty, who gave up two runs in a non-save appearance in Friday's 9-6 loss to Boston, is being taken out of that role to work through some location issues. Chapman will be used "at any point" for now, Girardi said, though he stopped short of naming his replacement. Instead, Dellin Betances and David Robertson will be used based on the situation, to allow flexibility. Chapman has given up at least two runs in each of his last three outings. Girardi said an injury has been ruled out as a culprit for Chapman's recent issues,



Dodgers make deal for Mets OF Curtis Granderson

Sat, 19 Aug 2017 20:04:29 GMT

The Los Angeles Dodgers have acquired veteran outfielder Curtis Granderson from the New York Mets for cash considerations and a player to be named later, the teams announced Friday. Granderson, 36, will join the Dodgers amid his fourth season with the Mets and 14th overall, after four seasons with the New York Yankees and six with the Detroit Tigers, who chose him in the third round of the 2002 draft out of the University of Illinois at Chicago.? "A little bittersweet to do that," Granderson told SNY in a locker room interview aired after the Mets' game Friday night, when asked about the pending trade. "But an opportunity to be able to go play in the postseason is exciting." Granderson is in

The Yankees won for the fifth time in six games and snapped Boston's three game winning streak to pull within four games of the first-place Red Sox in the AL East.



Girardi no longer committing to Chapman as closer

Sun, 20 Aug 2017 00:32:40 GMT

Yankees manager Joe Girardi is no longer committing to LHP Aroldis Chapman as his primary closer after another rough outing on Friday night. Girardi said he will instead use Chapman "at any point" and said it will "not necessarily" be in save situations, reports Bryan Hoch of MLB.com. Girardi would not commit to any other single pitcher, but suggested he would use Dellin Betances and David Robertson, according to NJ.com. "If you look at the guys that are next, you could close with if you didn't close with Chapman, Robbie's got the most experience, Dellin's got some experience and he's been throwing the ball well," Girardi said. "I mean, I could look at a lot of different things."  Chapman entered

The Yankees couldn't hold on to the lead as the Red Sox rallied late to take the series opener, 9-6, at Fenway Park box score Down 3-0 in the sixth, the Yankees closed the gap thanks to a two-run homer from Todd Frazier that cut the lead to one.

With bases loaded, Ronald Torreyes laced a single off the monster to take the lead 5-3. Aaron Hicks would then be hit with the bases loaded to score another run.  However, the Red Sox came back with four runs of their own in the seventh to retake the lead.

Blue Jays turn to Tepesch to try to tip scales vs. Cubs

Sat, 19 Aug 2017 06:27:41 GMT

Nick Tepesch doesn't have much of a major league track record this season with just three appearances with two teams since May. Tepesch (1-2, 5.25 ERA) was traded to Toronto from the Minnesota Twins in late July for cash considerations. "His command was a little bit better, he stayed on the attack, we got some breaks, we ran some balls down, and he hung in there," Toronto manager John Gibbons told reporters.

Sun, 20 Aug 2017 03:01:58 GMT

BOSTON -- Aroldis Chapman is out as the New York Yankees' closer. Yankees manager Joe Girardi said before Saturday night's game with the Boston Red Sox that the hard-throwing lefty, who gave up two runs in a non-save appearance in Friday's 9-6 loss to Boston, is being taken out of that role to work through some location issues.

Moreland delivers with pinch-hit single to help Red Sox beat Yankees, 9-6

Sat, 19 Aug 2017 03:45:15 GMT

BOSTON — The minutiae starts to fade now. Steal a few wins, rattle off a gorgeous run when people didn’t expect you to — what should or shouldn’t happen doesn’t matter. Are the Sox really this good? At a certain point, it’s irrelevant how many wins were lucky (Friday’s, arguably), or against bad teams (the White Sox), or anything else. Those victories are cinderblocks in the standings that the Yankees are will find increasingly difficult to budge. There’s simply no challenging the value of banked wins, no eliminating them. Look, you didn’t need Friday night’s 9-6 Red Sox win over the Yankees to realize the Sox are resilient. All of August has been a coming out party: for a pitching staff that’s



Chapman's Closing Struggles Continue, Dodgers Get a New Piece

Sat, 19 Aug 2017 06:00:45 GMT

The Yankees’ Cuban Missile Crisis Joe Girardi was hot, and it had nothing to do with the steamy weather in Boston or the intensity of the Yankees-Red Sox rivalry. No, when New York’s manager went to the mound in the bottom of the eighth inning Friday



Drellich: Forget Red Sox resiliency or luck, banked wins are what matter

Sat, 19 Aug 2017 05:29:51 GMT

BOSTON -- Nineteen batters. Six pitchers. One hour, 5 minutes. Eight runs. Two lead changes. And when the seventh inning was over on Friday night, the Boston Red Sox were back in front and on their way to a 9-6 victory over New York and a five-game lead over the rival Yankees in the AL East. "We sent a number of guys to the mound; they put a number of balls in play - hit batters, walks in there," Red Sox manager John Farrell said. "But then Addison Reed came on in the seventh to shut it down." Reed and fellow Red Sox reliever Joe Kelly retired presumptive AL rookie of the year Aaron Judge with the bases loaded in back-to-back innings, and pinch-hitter Mitch Moreland delivered a two-run single
