Every lineup, every day, as they are made public by the clubs.
The Mets remain winless in each of Jeremy Hefner's starts this year, after an 8-2 loss to the Cubs on Saturday afternoon at Wrigley Field.
Every day, the spotlight that follows the Yankees seems to be trained on the players who aren't with the team. But that changed Saturday, when Robinson Cano, the lone regular in an infield decimated by injuries, hit two home runs to lead New York to a 7-2 win over Toronto.
Injuries may have taken their toll on the Yankees and Blue Jays, but the teams' aces are at full strength, which could mean fans at Yankee Stadium will be in for a pitching duel on Sunday between Toronto's R.A. Dickey and New York's CC Sabathia.
Left-hander Travis Wood will take the ball for the Cubs on Sunday in the series finale against the Mets at Wrigley Field. New York will counter with right-hander Dillon Gee, as it looks to leave Chicago with some momentum heading into a homestand.
Fans all over New York City competed to be the fastest in a social media scavenger hunt that rewarded winners with All-Star Sunday and Fan Fest tickets. With five different winning locations scattered around Manhattan, baseball fans took to Twitter starting at 10 a.m. ET on Saturday to search for the secret password to help them discover where to head and win the prizes.
Curtis Granderson's versatility is only matched by his affability. The Yankees lined Granderson up for his first Major League game in right field Saturday against Toronto, and the longtime center fielder assured his manager that he wouldn't have a problem at the new position.
Joba Chamberlain may be getting closer to a return to the mound. Chamberlain, who has spent the last two weeks on the disabled list with a strained right oblique muscle, threw a long-toss session Saturday and will throw one more bullpen session before going out on a rehab assignment.
Twice this month, the Yankees have traded with the Rockies for a reserve infielder. New York acquired Reid Brignac from Colorado for cash considerations on Saturday.
The Mets are appealing to Major League Baseball to have Matt Harvey's second first-inning earned run from Friday's game switched to an unearned run.
Terry Collins has been impressed by Bobby Parnell this year, perhaps so much so that he wanted to actually hold the closer back from an early appearance on Friday.
