Fri Aug 919:10Mets sign infielder Joe Panik before game vs Nationals
NEW YORK (AP) — The Mets signed second baseman Joe Panik on Friday before their series opener against the wild card-leading Washington Nationals, a homecoming for the New York native.Born about twenty miles north of Citi Field in Yonkers, Panik lived in suburban Dutchess County where he attended John Jay High School in the hamlet of Hopewell Junction. He played college baseball for St. John's not far from his new team's Queens stadium"It couldn't have worked out any better for myself, personally, a lot of family, a lot of friends in the area," Panik said. "For me to be coming to a club that's hot right now... It's very exciting. For me, it's a great situation."The 28-year-old Panik was designated for assignment by San Francisco this week and later released. The Giants selected him in the first round out of St. John's in 2011, and the former Gold Glove winner played a key role during the club's 2014 World Series run."I think what we have in that clubhouse is something very special.

Wed Jun 521:10Mets' Canó leaves game hours after coming off injured list
NEW YORK (AP) — Mets second baseman Robinson Canó has been pulled from New York's game against the San Francisco Giants hours after coming off the injured list.New York said Canó left Wednesday night with tightness in his left quadriceps. He went on the IL two weeks ago after straining the muscle.Canó hit two groundouts in two at-bats, including an inning-ending double play with the bases loaded in the third. He favored his left leg coming up the line and was beaten to the bag by about a step. Adeiny Hechavarria replaced him at second base to begin the fifth.Canó said before the game he would be cautious to avoid re-injury, noting it might take a few games before he felt 100 percent.Acquired last offseason from Seattle, Canó is hitting .238 with three homers and 14 RBIs for New York. He has been criticized for failing to hustle on a few groundball outs this season, then was injured running hard on a groundout two weeks ago.Canó ran the bases and did other exercises Monday and Tuesday and was cleared after waking up feeling well Wednesday.Outfielder Aaron Altherr was designated for assignment to open a roster spot.___More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports

NEW YORK (AP) — The Yankees are in danger of going an entire decade without reaching a World Series for the first time since the 1910s.Aaron Boone's rookie season as a manager ended in failure when New York fizzled in the AL Division Series against Boston and was eliminated in four games."You're always chasing utopia," Boone said after the Yankees' final rally of the season fell short Tuesday night.A year after losing in the AL Championship Series was perceived as success, elimination by Boston left a feeling of failure for the title-worshipping Yankees.New York went 100-62 for its best record since its last World Series championship in 2009, yet finished eight games back of the Red Sox. The Yankees have gone six straight seasons without a first-place finish.They're set to retool around the young core of Aaron Judge, Gary Sanchez, Gleyber Torres, Miguel Andujar and Luis Severino, plus in-prime regulars Giancarlo Stanton, Didi Gregorius and Aaron Hicks. The Yankees got the power but w... [More]
