Oakland Athletics relief pitcher Shawn Kelley is day-to-day with a cut on the thumb on his right pitching hand, an injury he revealed Wednesday happened because of a dishwashing mishap.

September 4, 2018 3:40 AM Jacob deGrom allows one run and doesn't get a win, but Brandon Nimmo saves Mets with three-run jack in ninth vs. Dodgers

No, the Mets ace won’t seriously be considered for the league’s top award, though it wouldn’t be that out of the question if he weren’t, well, a Met. Not only did deGrom throw six innings of one-run ball against a dangerous Dodgers lineup, striking out six, he also had two hits and the only RBI until pinch hitter Brandon Nimmo launched a three-run home run in the ninth 62

August 28, 2018 11:55 PM Edwin Diaz's 50th save leads to close shave for Mariners manager

Some wins feel better than others, but Saturday's Seattle Mariners victory may have been the sweetest save of closer Edwin Diaz's young career. The 24-year-old collected his league-best 50th save of the season in the Mariners' 4-3, 10-inning win over the Arizona Diamondbacks, meaning Seattle manager Scott Servais had to follow through on a bet and get a haircut 79

Hefty price tags in Beverly Hills are nothing new, but Houston Astros pitcher Justin Verlander got a surprise when his lunch bill came to more than $1 million on Friday. The bill from the waiter at the Cabana Cafe at the Beverly Hills Hotel included $30 pancakes, a $42 salad and ... $1 million for "Dodger Killer." Former tennis player Mardy Fish, who dined 72

August 24, 2018 7:45 PM Matt Harvey stays in Cincinnati as Reds and Brewers can't agree on a deal for ex-Mets pitcher

The ex-Met is stuck in Cincinnati for the rest of the season after the Reds failed to swing a deal with the Brewers. Milwaukee, 71-58 heading into Friday's action and very much in the hunt for the NL Central crown or the consolation prize of a wild card spot, had claimed the righty on revocable waivers on Wednesday. The two teams then had 48 hours to negotiate 37

August 16, 2018 7:25 PM Yankees and Rays sound off on Jose Urena going after young Braves star Ronald Acuna

The injured Yankees star feels like he has been a target of pitchers in the past, just like Acuña was Wednesday night, but unlike seemingly everyone else in the country, he doesn’t have an opinion. “Yeah, it’s happened before, it just happens,” said Judge, who has been on the disabled list with a fractured wrist since July 26 after being hit — clearly 45
