Yankees sign top draft picks

New York inked its first-round pick Clarke Schmidt to a pro contract, the team announced Saturday. The right-hander and No. 16 overall selection out of South Carolina underwent Tommy John surgery in April after posting a 3.21 ERA during his three seasons at the collegiate level. The Yankees also finalized a contract with right-hander Matt Sauer, their second-round pick from Righetti High School in California.

Ranking MLB defenses: Yankees

Among highlights for the Yanks has been Aaron Judge defying expectations nearly as much with his quality glove (four runs saved this season) as with his bat.

Tanaka vs. Darvish lives up to hype

When Masahiro Tanaka pitched for the Rakuten Golden Eagles and Yu Darvish was with the Nippon Ham Fighters, they went head-to-head four times. Darvish went 2-1 with a 1.36 ERA in those meetings, and Tanaka went 1-3 with a 2.90 ERA. Both pitched well Friday, but Tanaka's Yankees were victorious in extras.

Yankees DFA slumping Carter, promote Austin

The Yankees have designated Chris Carter for assignment and promoted Tyler Austin from the minors in an attempt to boost their production at first base.

Andrew Marchand ESPN Senior Writer 

Yankees manager Joe Girardi made it very apparent he had little use for first baseman Chris Carter. The Yankees have designated Carter for assignment, calling up Tyler Austin. Austin figures to see a lot of time at first until Greg Bird comes back. Bird (ankle) is hoping to begin a new rehab soon. Carter was hitting .204. The Yankees will owe him the remainder of his $3.5M.

If the Red Sox retired numbers like the Yankees do ...

Babe Ruth is a Red Sox legend, too -- but so are many lesser stars who never wore the pinstripes. Imagine a world where Boston handed out as many plaques as they do in the Bronx. Who would be in Fenway Park's Monument Park?
