Travis d’Arnaud hits DL - and pressure is on Kevin Plawecki — The Mets put catcher Travis d'Arnaud on the disabled list Tuesday with a rotator cuff strain. Struggling Kevin Plawecki will inherit the position while d'Arnaud is gone. "He's got a bad shoulder from throwing; that's what we're concerned about.

Collins worried about hurting Travis d’Arnaud: ‘It’s a problem’ — Travis d'Arnaud left Monday's game with a sore right shoulder. The catcher saw a doctor Monday night at Citi Field, and will have a more thorough examination Tuesday morning. And even though d'Arnaud said he wasn't overly worried, manager Terry Colins was clearly concerned. "He's got a bad shoulder from throwing, that's what we're concerned about.

Neil Walker rescues Syndergaard night in Mets’ 4th straight — So Thor is mortal. Noah Syndergaard is human. But Neil Walker? He's still red hot and he lifted the Mets to a 5-3 win over the Reds on Monday night at Citi Field.

Girardi hints at roster move if A-Rod, Hicks both hurting — With Alex Rodriguez leaving Sunday's loss with left oblique stiffness, and outfielder Aaron Hicks already out with an injured left shoulder, manager Joe Girardi admitted it would be tough for the Yankees to play shorthanded minus two players next week in Texas and Boston. Hicks said he hadn't discussed a disabled list stint yet.

Pineda pounded, A-Rod hurt as Yankees turning ugly fast — First Yankees starter Michael Pineda got hit hard. Then the Bombers' lineup took a hit, when Alex Rodriguez got forced out of the game with an oblique injury. All in all, the Yankees' 8-1 beating at the hands of Tampa Bay was a day they'd love to forget.

New-era Tanaka giving Yankees what they badly need — Masahiro Tanaka may not be back to his pre-UCL-tear dominance, but he gave the Yankees his best start of the year. It's just a shame they couldn't give him any support. Tanaka was gone by the time Brett Gardner hit a walk-off home run in the bottom of the ninth and the Bombers had pulled out a 3-2 victory over Tampa Bay on Saturday.

Yanks’ Jacoby Ellsbury is best in majors at one very weird play — The image of a clutch Yankees rally sure wouldn't have looked like Saturday's seventh inning, and it definitely wouldn't have been centered on this secret weapon: Jacoby Ellsbury drawing a catcher's interference. But that's exactly the wacky play that helped the Yankees knot the game en route to a come-from-behind 3-2 win over Tampa Bay.

Will one mechanical tweak get Matt Harvey back on track? — Terry Collins' message to all the folks wringing their hands over Matt Harvey's slow start? Just chill. The Mets' struggling ace - who comes into Friday's start in Atlanta 0-3 with a 5.71 ERA - is coming off a great bullpen session on Tuesday, and a conversation with pitching coach Dan Warthen had Collins confident a bounceback performance is on tap.

Mets blast 2 HRs but can’t get big hit in 11-inning loss to Phils — PHILADELPHIA - The Mets kept up their home-run binge, but it wasn't enough. Not when you don't build runs, don't practice situational hitting, don't come through in the clutch. Those were all of the things the sorry Phillies did in beating the Mets 5-4 in 11 innings of 20.057 at Citizens Bank Park, their first extra-inning game of the season.

Jeff Van Gundy, Hawks rave over Nets’ gym-rat coach — When the Nets entrusted their head-coaching job to Kenny Atkinson, many questioned whether an untested assistant would be able to gain the respect of veteran players and the trust of free agents. Listen to the team he's leaving, and it's clear he already has.
