A-Rod Inches Closer to Willie Mays

A-Rod Inches Closer to Willie MaysMike Stobe/Getty Images(ST. PETERSBURG) -- Don't look now, but Alex Rodriguez is arguably the hottest hitter on the New York Yankees. A-Rod homered twice in the Yankees 5-4 win over the Tampa Bay Rays on Friday night. It was career home run number 657 and 658. He's just two home runs away from tying Willie Mays for fourth on the all-time list. "I try not to think about that," Rodriguez said. "I’m just really focusing on trying to help the team win.” Through 10 games this season, Rodriguez leads the Yankees in batting average, home runs, and RBIs. Rodriguez was suspended the entire 2014 season for his role in the Biogenesis scandal. "More than anything, I’m just feeling very grateful to be back playing baseball," he said. "I’m very grateful to (owners) Hank and Hal [Steinbrenner] for giving me the opportunity to put the uniform on again. It’s something I don't take for granted and it’s much appreciated. It just feels good to be playing baseball. I’m having fun out there." Rodriguez is under contract for three more seasons. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.

Red Sox Top Yankees in 19 Inning Classic

Red Sox Top Yankees in 19 Inning Classic Brian D. Kersey/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The rivalry between the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox added another chapter on Friday night/Saturday morning. In a 19 inning marathon, the Red Sox were able to come out on top, 6-5. "It's a testament to the will and the resiliency of this team," Red Sox manager John Farrell said. The game clocked in at 6 hours, 49 minutes. It was the longest game played in the history of the Red Sox, and the second-longest in Yankees history. The teams combined for 138 at-bats, 32 hits, 28 strikeouts and 627 pitches thrown by 17 pitchers. "It feels worse than one loss, but thank goodness it's only one," Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner said afterward. The game could have been over much earlier, as the Red Sox blew leads in the 9th 16th, and 18th inning. With one out left in the top of the 19th, shortstop Xander Bogaerts singled to shallow right field. He wound up stealing second and then advanced to third base after a passed ball. Rookie outfielder Mookie Betts then hit a sac-fly to bring in the game-winning run. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.

Hank Aaron Says He’s Rooting for Alex Rodriguez Mike Stobe/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- While many have recently come after New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez, one of the greatest players in the history of Major League Baseball is in his corner. Hank Aaron has come out and offered his public support towards A-Rod. "I am rooting for him," Aaron told Newsday. "Despite all of the things that people say he had been involved in, I'm rooting for him to come back and have a great year. I am very much anxious to see what he's going to do."

A-Rod Issues an Apology to MLB and Fans

A-Rod Issues an Apology to MLB and Fans Leon Halip/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez released a lengthy personal handwritten letter obtained by ESPN on Tuesday, apologizing to the fans of Major League Baseball and the organization. Rodriguez apologized for taking steroids again and is hoping to move onto bigger and better things this season with the Yankees after serving a one-year suspension. "I take full responsibility for the mistakes that led to my suspension for the 2014 season," Rodriguez said in the statement. "I regret that my actions made the situation worse than it needed to be. To Major League Baseball, the Yankees, the Steinbrenner family, the Players Association and you, the fans, I can only say I'm sorry." Rodriguez is owed $61 million over the next three years and can also make even more money in home run bonuses. "I accept the fact that many of you will not believe my apology or anything that I say at this point. I understand why and that's on me," the letter continued.  "It was gracious of the Yankees to offer me the use of Yankee Stadium for this apology but I decided the next time I am in Yankee Stadium, I should be in pinstripes doing my job." The letter comes on the same day that Anthony Bosch, former owner of a Florida medical clinic, was sentenced to four years in a federal prison. Bosch pretended to be a doctor and illegally supplied injections and other performance-enhancing drugs to professional baseball players, including Rodriguez. Rodriguez also reached out to third baseman Chase Headley this week to get to know his new teammate.  The Yankees signed Headley to a four-year deal this offseason.

Report: N.Y. Yankees Preparing to Challenge A-Rod

Report: N.Y. Yankees Preparing to Challenge A-Rod iStockphoto(NEW YORK) -- The New York Yankees are preparing to contest the validity of a marketing contact with third baseman Alex Rodriguez, according to ESPN. In 2007, Rodriguez entered into a deal with the Yankees that would pay the 14-time All-Star a bonus for each milestone home run he reached. Rodriguez is six homers away from tying Willie Mays for fourth on the all-time home run list, which will make him eligible for a $6 million bonus. The bonus is part of the 10-year, $275 million extension he signed with New York. The Yankees are devising legal arguments against paying the bonus, because of Rodriguez's steroid revelations and year-long ban he received from Major League Baseball. Rodriguez will also receive an extra $6 million each if he ties Babe Ruth at 714 home runs, Hank Aaron at 755 home runs, and Barry Bonds at 762 home runs, and breaks Bonds' all-time record.

Hiroki Kuroda To Return To Japan

Hiroki Kuroda To Return To Japan Elsa/Getty Images (NEW YORK) -- Hiroki Kuroda has decided to sign with the Hiroshima Toyo Carp of Japan's Nippon Professional Baseball League. Kuroda, 39, spent seven seasons in Major League Baseball, the last three with the New York Yankees. After spending most of his career in the NBP, Kuroda came over to the United States at age 33 to join the Los Angeles Dodgers.  He owns a 3.45 career ERA with 6.7 K/9 in seven seasons of Major League Baseball. The loss leaves the Yankees with more questions in their rotation as Kuroda was one of their most dependable pitchers last season.  C.C Sabathia, Masahiro Tanaka and Ivan Nova are returning from injury while Michael Pineda and newly acquired Nathan Eovaldi will seek to prove their consistency. Last season Kuroda finished 11-9 with a 3.71 ERA and a 4.17 SO/BB ratio over 199 innings.   Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

Yankees and Marlins Swap Prado and Eovaldi

Yankees and Marlins Swap Prado and Eovaldi Major League Baseball(NEW YORK) -- The Yankees and Marlins have completed a five-player trade that will send Martin Prado to Miami and Nathan Eovaldi to New York. Friday, the Yankees sent Prado and relief pitcher David Phelps to Miami, in exchange for the 24-year-old right handed fireballer Eovaldi, utility player Garrett Jones and minor league pitcher Domingo German. Eovaldi, was 6-14 last season with a 4.37 ERA while also surrendering the most hits in the National League with 223. The Yankees have made similar moves in the past; buying low on young inconsistent talent. Last season, the team acquired pitcher Brandon McCarthy in a low risk move.  After a few tweaks to his mechanics and pitching tendencies McCarthy lowered his ERA from 4.53 in 2013 with the Arizona Diamondbacks, to 2.89 over 14 games for the Yankees last season.  McCarthy signed with the Dodgers this offseason for $48 million over four years. According to Marc Craig of Newsday, the Yankees are also including $6 million in the trade to cover the salary of Prado.  Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

Yankes Sign Reliever Andrew Miller, Acquire Shorstop Didi Gregorius via Trade

Yankes Sign Reliever Andrew Miller, Acquire Shorstop Didi Gregorius via Trade Major League Baseball(NEW YORK) -- The New York Yankees have taken a major step, or make that steps, in making them a playoff contender again. On Friday, the team signed ace reliever Andrew Miller while also acquiring shortstop Didi Gregorius from the Arizona Diamondbacks in a three-team trade. Miller's deal with the Yankees for four years and will pay him $36 million. Over the past two seasons, Miller has emerged as one of more dominant relievers in the American League with the Boston Red Sox and Baltimore Orioles. In 2014, Miller posted a 5-5 record with a 2.02 ERA to go along with 103 strikeouts in 62.1 innings pitched. His strikeout-per-nine-innings ratio of 14.87 was second to only Cincinnati Reds closer Aroldis Chapman. Meanwhile, Gregorius could very well be the replacement to longtime shortstop Derek Jeter. While he's not known for his bat, he's known as being a great defender at his position. In order to get Gregorius, the Yankees sent pitcher Shane Greene to the Detroit Tigers while the Diamondbacks acquired pitcher Robbie Ray and infielder Domingo Leyba. In 2014, the Yankees missed out on the playoffs for the second-consecutive season after finishing 84-78. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

Ichiro Not Ready to Retire

Ichiro Not Ready to Retire Rich Schulz/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Even at age 41, outfielder Ichiro Suzuki has no plans to retire and even hopes to play in 2015. “I have every intention of playing in the Major Leagues next year,” Ichiro said during an MLB Network interview. “Where will that be? I cannot tell you because baseball is not an individual sport and so it’s not just up to my feeling that I want to play. Somebody has to feel that they want to give me the opportunity to play. But I have every intention of playing.” Last season while primarily serving as a fourth outfielder, Ichiro hit .284 with 42 runs scored and 15 stolen basses. While he may not be the dominant hitter he once was, Ichiro is still a solid outfielder who is just 156 hits away from 3,000 for his Major League career. In 14 Major League seasons, Ichiro has batted .317 while averaging 203 hits per season. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio
