(First reported by the NY Post.) Previously, the first-year payout was widely reported as about $8 million.

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.

Doug Padilla ESPN Staff Writer 

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.
