Yu Darvish back and better than ever?

In his first start of the 2014 season, Darvish hit 95 miles per hour once. On Saturday, his first start since undergoing Tommy John surgery in March 2015, the right-hander hit that velocity 20 times.

Despite Michael Pineda's recent struggles -- he got bombed again on Saturday by the Rays and his 6.92 ERA is the worst among MLB starters -- Joe Girardi said the possibility of removing him from the rotation hasn't been discussed. "We still believe in Michael," Girardi said. "We've seen Michael have success." As of now, Girardi said, the Yankees will remain on rotation, meaning Pineda will start Thursday against the Tigers in Detroit in a makeup of a game rained out in April.

Olney: Syndergaard ejection highlights inconsistency

Buster Olney says MLB needs to figure out how to handle pitchers throwing at batters more consistently in the wake of Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard throwing behind Chase Utley.


MLB ? @mlb

Roy Halladay had a perfect night, 6 years ago today.

One of the craziest stats of 2016: Adam Wainwright - 5 hits, 5 extra-base hits. Kolten Wong - 26 hits, 4 extra-base hits. Baseball!

Syndergaard tossed for throwing behind Utley

With the memories of the past postseason perhaps still in the minds of the Mets, Noah Syndergaard throws a fastball behind Chase Utley, which gets the Mets pitcher tossed from the game.

Would you look at that? Buster Posey, crushing two homers in a day. #ASGWorthy @esurance #ASG ballot:

As expected, no Mark Teixeira in today's Yankees lineup. Also, Carlos Beltran, who suffered some discomfort near his shoulder blade, will not play, nor will Chase Headley, just because. Here's the Yankees lineup that will face RHP Jake Odorizzi and the Rays today at 1:10 pm; Ellsbury cf, Gardner lf, Castro 2b, McCann c, Rodriguez DH, Gregorius ss, Hicks rf, Ackley 1b, Torreyes 3b, Eovaldi P

By the way: The only extra-base hit allowed by Clayton Kershaw this season after getting ahead 0-1 in count, in 151 ABs -- Bumgarner, HR.

Clayton Kershaw on Sunday Night Baseball tonight. Having all timer of a season. Kershaw has 95 strikeouts and only five walks this season
