Yankees rally past Marlins with late hitting flurry

MIAMI — There’s nothing like a trip to south Florida to reset. That’s just what the Yankees did the last three days in Miami, where they finished off a sweep of the Marlins on Sunday with a 3-1 win, thanks to more inspired play by Anthony Rizzo, and they’ll return to The Bronx on Monday looking to make that long-anticipated run in the AL East.

Red Sox's Chaim Bloom: Cost for starting pitching at trade deadline was too high for us

Acquiring one of the game’s better power hitters in Kyle Schwarber doesn’t exactly make for a quiet deadline season, but compared to what other AL contenders did in July, the Red Sox were comparatively modest in picking up Schwarber and relievers Hansel Robles and Austin Davis. Chief baseball officer Chaim Bloom told MLB.com’s Ian Browne and other reporters that the Sox looked into several trade possibilities, but teams put a very high price tag on pitchers in particular, leaving Bloom’s front office unwilling to sacrifice too much of the future for a short-term gain.

Kyle Schwarber To Join Red Sox In Detroit After Working Out At First Base

Kyle Schwarber is in a good spot, according to Red Sox manager Alex Cora. The outfielder, who came to Boston on Thursday from the Washington Nationals, brings a powerful bat and the potential to build up the team’s arsenal at first base — a position he has pretty much never played but is open to learning at the urging of chief baseball officer Chaim Bloom.

Red Sox's Chris Sale: Another Triple-A start coming

Sale is scheduled to make the fifth start of his rehab assignment Saturday at Triple-A Worcester, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports. In his fourth rehab start overall and first at Worcester on Saturday, Sale was once again impressive. He worked five innings of one-run ball, scattering five hits and a walk while striking out seven in the 81-pitch outing. According to Bill Koch of The Providence Journal, manager Alex Cora said Sunday that Sale "felt great" one day after making the start, but the Red Sox want the left-hander to get in one more tune-up at Triple-A before he makes his long-awaited 2021 debut for Boston. If all goes well in Saturday's start, Sale would tentatively line up to return from the 60-day injured list for the Red Sox's Aug. 12 game against the Rays in Boston.

MLB Week 18 Pitching Waiver Wire: A Few Yankees To Consider

Yes, Taillon was on my list last week and I’m including him again. I’ll admit, I was worried about the start against Boston. He then proceeded to toss seven innings of one-run ball and pick up the win against the Red Sox. Over his last seven starts now, Taillon has a 2.59 ERA with 35 strikeouts and 12 walks in 41.2 innings pitched. He’s not striking out a ton of batters, and the Yankees offense isn’t providing him with loads of run support as we expected they would prior to the season, but he’s been remarkably good for quite some time now. Since exiting after just 0.1 innings on June 12th and ballooning his season-long ERA up to 5.74, these past seven starts have brought his ERA back down to a respectable 4.36. Upcoming on the schedule for New York? They have Miami, Baltimore, Seattle, and Kansas City. Yeah, I’d say streaming starting pitching doesn’t get much better than Taillon right now.
