Latest Headlines

Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports that the Yankees have agreed to a one-year, $10 million contract with CC Sabathia.

The deal is pending a physical. It will be the 10th season spent in New York for the 37-year-old southpaw who posted a 3.69 ERA and 1.27 WHIP in a resurgent 2017 season. He give the Yankees much needed depth in the starting rotation, but it's likely they'll still be in the market for additional arms despite this signing.

Max Scherzer fired six scoreless frames in an 8-2 win over the Marlins on Friday.

Scherzer is now tops in the majors with 16 wins. He gave up five hits — all of them singles — and walked just one batter while striking out seven. Scherzer also went 1-for-2 with a double and two runs scored, which brings his batting average to .296 for the year. He’s really doing it all. The Nats' ace now holds a 2.11 ERA and 234/41 K/BB ratio in 174 2/3 innings through 26 starts this year. He’s building quite the case for this third straight National League Cy Young Award.

Carlos Carrasco struck out six while turning in seven scoreless innings and was credited with a 2-1 win over the Orioles on Friday.

He surrendered just three base hits -- all singles -- and issued one base-on-balls in the sterling outing. He improved his record to 15-6 with a 3.33 ERA and 1.10 WHIP in 23 starts and one relief appearance. He is tied for second in the majors in wins, one behind Max Scherzer. Carrasco has a fantastic 161:28 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 143 1/3 innings. He will face a much tougher opponent on Wednesday in Boston.

Aaron Nola struck out 11 batters over seven innings of one-run ball in a 4-2 win over the Mets on Friday.

It was his fifth double-digit strikeout game of the season. Nola allowed just three hits and one walk while hitting a batter, with the only run scoring on a sacrifice fly in the fourth inning. The Phillies’ ace has now allowed two earned runs or fewer in nine out of his last 10 starts. That gives him a 2.24 ERA and 160/44 K/BB ratio in 161 innings through 25 starts. Jacob deGrom and Max Scherzer still have better ERAs, but Nola is a legitimate Cy Young Award candidate in his own right.

Eric Thames left Friday's game with right knee soreness.

Thames hurt his knee in a collision with Lorenzo Cain in the first inning. We should know more on his status after the game, but it's probably safe to consider him day-to-day for now.

Eric Thames exited Friday's game against the Cardinals with an apparent injury.

Thames was involved in a nasty collision with teammate Lorenzo Cain in the outfield during the first inning. He stayed in the game initially before Hernan Perez took over in right field in the third inning. The Brewers should provide more specifics soon.

David Peralta is not in Friday's lineup against the Padres.

Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo said Peralta was resting back at the team hotel, but is expected to be at the ballpark for the start of Friday's game. Lovullo said he's fine, but perhaps he's dealing with a minor illness. Either way, it doesn't sound like a long-term concern. Jon Jay is starting in left field on Friday and will hit leadoff.
Aug 17 - 8:51 PM

Kenley Jansen (heart) threw again on Friday and insisted that he feels "great."

Encouraging news for the Dodgers' closer. Jansen was initially expected to miss 4-6 weeks when he was placed on the disabled list with an irregular heartbeat a week ago, but he's hoping to be cleared to pitch after a follow-up visit with a cardiologist on Monday.
Aug 17 - 8:20 PM

Astros manager A.J. Hinch said Friday that Jose Altuve (knee) could go out on a minor league rehab assignment this weekend with Triple-A Fresno.

Great news. Altuve took batting practice and did some sprints on Friday, after which he told reporters that it was his best day since injuring his knee. If all goes well, Altuve could rejoin the Astros during their series against the Mariners early next week.

Yasiel Puig is appealing his two-game suspension.

Puig isn't in Friday's lineup, which led to some speculation that he decided to serve the suspension which resulted from Tuesday's benches-clearing skirmish with the Giants, but he will be available off the bench.
Aug 17 - 8:11 PM

Jose Urena said Friday that he's appealing his six-game suspension for hitting Braves outfielder Ronald Acuna.

Urena said again Friday that he didn't intend to hit Acuna. He only threw one pitch before being tossed on Wednesday, so Marlins manager Don Mattingly hasn't ruled out the possibility of him starting Sunday against the Nationals. Otherwise, he'll likely line up to face the Yankees on Tuesday or Wednesday. Speculation is that he'll eventually drop his appeal in order to avoid a series against the Braves next weekend.
Aug 17 - 7:47 PM

Dee Gordon will make the start at shortstop Friday against the Dodgers with Jean Segura away on the paternity list.

It will be his first start at shortstop this season. Gordon has now started at three different positions in the last three games. He should go back to splitting time between second base and center field once Segura returns in the next couple of days.
