New York Teams

The Jets made it official, placing QB Josh McCown (fractured left hand) on injured reserve. They filled the roster spot by activating RB Akeem Judd from the practice squad. They signed former Wisconsin QB Joel Stave to the practice squad, giving them a third arm at practice. Stave was an undrafted free agent in 2016. He has been on four different NFL rosters, most recently the Redskins (practice squad).

From Buster Olney: The Orioles have been talking with other teams about moving Manny Machado, and one of the teams that has expressed interest, according to sources: The Yankees, who currently have a need for a third baseman. The Orioles have not executed a major sell-off in the time that Peter Angelos has been owner of the team, but the circumstances could be right for that. Machado is a free agent at the end of the 2018 season and is expected to test the market, and the Orioles want access to the best prospects – and the Yankees have a very well-stocked farm system. Stay tuned.

Mets manager Mickey Callaway isn't ready to commit to Jeurys Familia or anyone else as the team's principal closer in 2018. When asked if a club can succeed over 162 games without a dedicated closer, Callaway said, "Yeah, I think it can if you're having pitchers face the guys they're supposed to face."

Lonzo Ball looked up at the famous ceiling at Madison Square Garden and soaked it all in during his first morning shootaround at the arena. Ball has only been to New York twice — the only other time was for the draft — and tonight will be his first game at the Mecca of basketball. Ball says he's mostly stayed in his hotel room outside of making an appearance at a Big Baller Brand pop-up store to sign autographs for thousands of fans who braved the cold on Sunday. It's a big week for the rookie. Besides making his Garden debut, he faces LeBron James, his favorite player growing up, on Thursday for the first time. "Every kid dreams about playing (at the Garden), just because of all the history and all the battles," Ball said. "It's going to be a lot of fun (this week). The Garden, all the history there and then Lebron, best player in the world. Definitely two challenges, and I look forward to it."

In trading Chase Headley and his $13 million salary, along with Bryan Mitchell for the .200 hitting, 27-year-old Jabari Blash to the Padres, the Yankees are clearing room under the luxury tax threshold following the Giancarlo Stanton blockbuster. This move puts the Yankees in position to re-sign CC Sabathia, add another starter via trade or free agency and/or re-sign Todd Frazier to man third. The main question facing any Frazier deal is: How many years would they give him with Manny Machado a possible free agent target next winter and exciting prospect, Miguel Andujar, not far from the big leagues? All and all, Yankees GM Brian Cashman is not done yet.
