As they continue to look up at the top spot in the AL East and at both wild cards, the Bombers are in desperate need of everything and have actively been trying to upgrade a roster decimated by injuries.
With the MLB trade deadline just two weeks away, it’s time to see who could potentially be on the move in late July.
Cliff Lee may be coveted, but John Danks could make more sense for the Yankees.
In 10 starts this season, Lee — who will turn 36 in August — is 4-4 with a 3.18 ERA. He’s struck out 61 and walked nine.
What will they do at the trade deadline? That’s the question that will follow the Yankees and Mets around once the All-Star break ends.
CBS Local Sports breaks down the top starting pitchers for your fantasy baseball draft.
Cliff Lee outpitched Zack Wheeler after the Mets learned All-Star starter Matt Harvey has a partially torn ligament in his right elbow, Cody Asche had a two-run triple, and Philadelphia beat New York 2-1 Monday.
Harvey struck out 10 in seven overpowering innings, and David Wright and Juan Lagares each hit a home run.
Michael Young and Ryan Howard homered, Cliff Lee came within one out of a complete game and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the New York Mets 8-3 on Tuesday night.
Alex Rodriguez will make more this year than all the Houston Astros combined — a lot more. And he won’t even play the first half of the season, if at all.
The bombshell about A-Rod’s latest injury leaves us all wondering what he has left. Let’s face it — it is perfectly clear to all of us that he is not a 30-100 guy anymore.
Cliff Lee struck out 10 while outdueling Cy Young contender R.A. Dickey, and the Philadelphia Phillies regained their winning touch by beating the New York Mets 3-1 Monday night.
Early home runs from Mike Baxter and Scott Hairston weren’t enough support for starting pitcher Jon Niese as the Mets dropped the series finale against the Phillies and had their four-game winning streak snapped.
Even if neither New York team reaches its goals, their fans can rejoice in the fates of their foes: archrivals Boston and Philadelphia, who are a combined 30 games out of first place.
Brian Cashman doesn’t expect to make any big splashes before Tuesday’s 4 p.m. trade deadline. Apparently that includes Lee.
