N.Y. Yankees INF/OF Martin Prado Placed on 60-Day DL

N.Y. Yankees INF/OF Martin Prado Placed on 60-Day DL

iStockphoto(ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.) -- New York Yankees infielder/outfielder Martin Prado will miss the rest of the season after undergoing an emergency appendectomy early Tuesday morning. The team placed him on the 60-day disabled list.

The Yankees acquired Prado in a trade on July 31 from the Arizona Diamondbacks for minor league catcher Pete O’Brien and a player to be named.  In 37 games with New York, the former All-Star batted .317 with seven home runs and 16 RBIs. He also scored 18 runs and swiped a base.

To take Prado’s spot on the roster, the Yankees added infielder/outfielder Jose Pirela.

Yankees Tanaka Returns to New York with Soreness

Yankees Tanaka Returns to New York with Soreness

Rob Carr/Getty Images(TORONTO) -- New York Yankees starting pitcher Masahiro Tanaka returned to New York on Friday with what is being called "general soreness". The right-hander was attempting to return from a torn ligament in his elbow suffered in July.

"I want to be a little bit cautious. I haven't been throwing for a couple of weeks and then I started throwing again and built up the number of pitches that I've been throwing,'' said Tanaka via his interpreter, Shingo Horie. "I think that's the reason why there's a little bit of extra soreness in the arm itself."

Tanaka, almost a lock for American League Rookie of the Year before the injury, threw 49 pitches in a simulated game prior to the Yankees taking on the Detroit Tigers on August 28. Following his performance, Tanaka said he was experiencing a feeling of soreness which then raised questions about his return this season.

"I don't have percentages,'' Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. "We'd like him to pitch for us, too. But as I've said all along, this is something we're either going to know or not know when he gets into competition.

Yankees’ Masahiro Tanaka Making Progress Towards Return this Season

Yankees’ Masahiro Tanaka Making Progress Towards Return this Season

Hannah Foslien/Getty Images(ST. PETERSBURG) -- The New York Yankees are still holding out hope that starting pitcher Masahiro Tanaka can return this season.

Tanaka was on the mound for the first time in five weeks as he threw his first bullpen session since July 9. He was placed on the DL with a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament.

It was feared that Tanaka might need Tommy John Surgery at one point, but his recent progress shows he could at least avoid surgery.

"I felt very good," said Tanaka. "I'm not going to go 100 percent on the first day of bullpens," he said. "But I felt that I was able to throw the way I wanted to. Just the fact that I was able to get through it without any pain." 

If Tanaka is able to return to the mound, it would likely wouldn't be for another month. The Yankees must weigh if it is worth pushing him to return.

In his rookie season, Tanaka has gone 12-4 with a 2.51 ERA in 18 starts.

Rays Reach .500 With Shutout Of Yankees

Rays Reach .500 With Shutout Of Yankees

Tom Szczerbowkski/Getty Images(ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.) -- Just over two months ago, the Tampa Bay Rays sat 18 games under .500 at 24-42. Now, following a 5-0 win against the New York Yankees, the Rays are back even with a 61-61 record.

"Really proud of the boys," manager Joe Maddon said. "It was not easy."

Alex Cobb certainly made it look easy for the Rays who won their third straight. The righty pitched into the eighth inning, allowing just six hits in 7 1/3 innings of work with eight strikeouts. Meanwhile, Tampa Bay plated a pair of first inning runs in the first to give Cobb a lead to use.

The Rays become just the fourth team ever to get back to .500 after being 18 games under earlier. Back in 2004, the Tampa Bay Devil Rays also completed the feat, as did the 2006 Florida Marlins and 1899 Louisville Colonels. 

"It started with Joe and not letting us believe that we were that team," Cobb said. "It's mind-boggling that we went through the stretch we did, but we're back on track now."
