The Jets' multi-year offer to free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, which has been on the table for at least two months, includes $12 million in the first year, a league source confirmed. (First reported by the NY Post.) Previously, the first-year payout was widely reported as about $8 million. ESPN reported in mid-April that the offer was higher than $8 million, and now that has been confirmed with a dollar amount.

In his second game back in the Yankees lineup after missing 21 games with a hamstring strain, Alex Rodriguez took Chris Archer over the centerfield fence with a man on to give the Yankees a 3-0 lead over the Tampa Bay Rays. It was A-Rod's 6th HR of the season and career bomb No. 693.

Dodgers 19-year-old rookie starter Julio Urias lasted just 2 2/3 innings in his debut Friday against the Mets. He was limited to 90 pitches regardless of how he performed, but was lifted at 81 pitches after walking his fourth batter of the day and loading the bases. The Mets led 3-1 in the third inning when he departed.

Dodgers catcher Yasmani Grandal told me that Julio Urías has the potential to be as good or better than any of the young starters in the talented Mets pitching staff: "(In Urías) we have a prospect that can pitch almost the same or better than them, because he has better secondary pitches and can throw up to 97-98 mph. I have never seen a pitcher that young with such good secondary pitches. The Mets prospects had success with those fastballs around 98-100mph, but their secondary pitches were not as good as Urias'."

Carmelo Anthony reiterated on Friday that he hadn't spoken to Phil Jackson during the club's coaching search. "Nah," Anthony said while attending Friday's Mets game, according to Newsday. "I let them deal with that one." The Knicks are expected to announce the hiring of Jeff Hornacek next week. Anthony had stated a desire to share his opinion on potential coaches, but that didn't happen. Anthony also said Friday that he expects to be involved in the club's pursuit of free agents this summer. "Pretty sure," he said, according to Newsday. "When that time comes, we'll do the work."

It turns out Mark Teixeira will not take BP before tonight's game. The plan tonight is treatment only and if the cortisone shot takes effect he might give it a shot tomorrow. The earliest he could play again is Sunday's series finale but that is very much up in the air.
