Michael Pineda might be better than his stats

Although Saturday's start was against a lineup with minimal offensive power, Michael Pineda looked more like the pitcher the Yankees hope he can be.

Aroldis Chapman's heat ignites Yankee Stadium

Yankees closer Aroldis Chapman put on a show in the ninth inning, firing his first 10 pitches at 100 mph or more to earn a save against the Twins.

Wallace Matthews ESPN Staff Writer 

Joe Girardi said " the plan" is for Mark Teixeira to rejoin the Yankees for Saturday's game, although there is a caveat: "Our plan is to give him today (off) to make sure that he's OK and then get him back in there tomorrow. " Teixeira, on the DL since June 4 with a cartilage tear in his right knee, just finished a 3-game rehab assignment for AAA Scranton, where he went 1-for-9 with a walk. Teixeira is hitting just .180 with 3 HRs and 12 RBI. "I know he's off to a slow start but I really don't think that's going to continue," Girardi said. "We expect him to be Mark."

Castro's first walk-off HR wasn't cheap

Wind gives Headley some help on HR

Chase Headley's second-inning grand slam off Rockies starter Jon Gray on Wednesday traveled 425 feet, 35 of which was a result of strong winds, per ESPN's Home Run Tracker.

Andrew Marchand ESPN Senior Writer 

Alex Rodriguez is not the same player he was at this time last year. After the Rockies intentionally walked Carlos Beltran in a tie game with one out and a man on second to get to A-Rod, Rodriguez struck out. A-Rod is hitting .215. Brian McCann went on to groundout to end the inning.
