New York Teams

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

Jeff Hornacek will get a short break tonight from what's been a tough first season in New York. He and Knicks assistant Howard Eisley will be feted at halftime of the Knicks-Jazz game when Utah recognizes the 1996-97 NBA Finals team.

Puerto Rico manager Edwin Rodríguez says the only pitcher NOT available out the bullpen tonight is Héctor Santiago. Hopes Seth Lugo can give him 5 innings; Lugo will be followed by José Berríos.

Zack Wheeler, once a top pitching prospect, hasn't pitched in a regular-season MLB game since 2014 due to Tommy John surgery. How'd he feel after allowing four runs in three innings today?

Dallas Green was one of the smartest people I ever met in baseball - & never afraid to say & do what he felt was right. Took on George Steinbrenner, building lights at Wrigley & veteran stars in Philly. RIP a great man

ESPN's BPI doesn't see the Jazz having a hard time beating the Knicks at home on Wednesday. A win would put them a full game ahead of the Clippers for the fourth seed in the West.

Steven Matz said he's glad he has at least one more spring start left before the start of the season after a shaky outing vs. the Marlins today.

That's it for Masahiro Tanaka. 5.1 more shutout IP today. For the spring: 18.2 IP, 6 hits, 0 runs, 2 BB, 22 K. Dominated all spring.

Should the Jets invest in a TE with sixth pick? (1:21)

Greg Bird could win a HR title. Just tied Bryce Harper for the all-important Grapefruit League HR lead. 2nd of the day. 6th of the spring. This one over the RF berm. Crazy power

Greg Bird just owns Vince Velasquez today, hitting two homers against the Phillies righty. Bird leapt about three rounds in my rankings today with news he'll be the clear Yankee starter; .230-25 is possible if he gets the PAs.

Andrew Marchand ESPN Senior Writer 

Greg Bird, officially tabbed as the starting first baseman this morning by Joe Girardi, is celebrating in style, as he has hit two homers against the Phillies this afternoon.

Steven Matz didn't look sharp today. The young lefty allowed five runs, eight hits and struck out one in four innings vs. the Marlins -- this after surrendering just two runs in his first three spring starts. Matz had surgery to remove a bone spur from his left elbow in October.

Jayson Stark ESPN Senior Writer 

Greg Bird just hit a HR that might be hopping down the left lane of US 19 right now. Monster shot that one-hopped out of the stadium just to the right of the CF batters eye.
