Encarnacion, Happ returning to New York after suffering injuries vs. Tigers

Encarnacion, Happ returning to New York after suffering injuries vs. Tigers Another game, another injury for the New York Yankees. Designated hitter Edwin Encarnacion exited Thursday's game against the Detroit Tigers with a left oblique strain, the team announced. He's returning to New York for further testing. It's not clear when or how Encarnacion sustained the injury. He homered in the third inning of the Yankees' doubleheader opener at Comerica Park, then took a walk in the fifth. He appeared to be grimacing at various points during his fifth-inning at-bat and was even checked by trainers at first base. Though he remained in the game to run the bases in the fifth, Mike Ford pinch-hit for Encarnacion in the seventh inning. (Courtesy: MLB.

It wasn't as entertaining as his now-infamous "Savages in the Box" rant, but Aaron Boone was ejected by noted curmudgeon Joe West on Saturday for arguing balls and strikes in the first inning of the New York Yankees' game against the Toronto Blue Jays.

Slugger Giancarlo Stanton watched three called strikes from T.J. Zeuch in the bottom of the zone to end the frame. Stanton exchanged words with home plate umpire Jeremie Rehak, and Boone started chirping from the dugout.

Pushed behind an opener, Zeuch shows growth in Blue Jays win over Yankees

Pushed behind an opener, Zeuch shows growth in Blue Jays win over Yankees With the Toronto Blue Jays closing out the final days of a turbulent rebuilding year, and nothing but draft order on the line, games like Sunday’s 6-4 win over the Yankees offer the type of consequence-free learning opportunities that can really augment a player’s development. The post John Ralston, former Stanford, Broncos coach, dies at 92 appeared first on Sportsnet.ca.

West, the crew chief, didn't want to hear any of it. He tossed Boone all the way from his perch at third base, prompting Boone trot out to further plead his already decided case. Hitting coach Marcus Thames was also ejected.

Outfielder Brett Gardner planted the seeds of animosity no less than 24 hours earlier, when he took exception to West's strike zone in the ninth inning of the Yankees' 4-3 loss.

Betances suffered the injury while jumping on the mound in Toronto, manager Aaron Boone said, according to James Wagner of The New York Times. He appeared to suffer the injury while dancing off the mound after recording the second out of the fourth inning, erroneously thinking the strikeout was the final out of the frame.

Earlier this week, Boone became the first manager in MLB history to win 100 games in both of his first seasons at the helm, and the Yankees captured the American League East title.
