Buster Olney of ESPN.com reports that the Yankees have re-signed Hiroki Kuroda to a one-year, $15 million contract.

He'll also have a chance to earn a little less than $1 million in performance-based incentives. Kuroda could have scored a multi-year deal from another team, but he preferred to sign for just one year so that he could possibly return to Japan after next season. The Yankees will now focus their attention on re-signing Andy Pettitte.

Dodgers placed RHP Yu Darvish on the 10-day disabled list with back tightness.

The Dodgers aren't overly concerned with the issue, and Darvish is only expected to miss one start. He's slated to return to the rotation next Sunday against the Brewers.

Dodgers optioned OF Joc Pederson to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

With Friday's addition of Curtis Granderson, the struggling Pederson was squeezed out of his role as the club's primary center fielder against right-handed pitching. The 25-year-old was hitting just .116/.218/.261 with two homers, seven RBI and a 14/6 K/BB ratio over 78 plate appearances in his last 26 games dating back to July 16.

Curtis Granderson is starting in left field and batting fifth in his Dodgers' debut against the Tigers on Saturday.

Granderson was acquired from the Mets late on Friday and is already in Motown with his new club. He adds another potent left-handed bat to an already deep and supremely talented Dodgers' lineup.

Nick Delmonico hit two home runs, including one of the inside-the-park variety, during a 4-3 victory over the Rangers.

He swatted a standard two-run shot off starter Andrew Cashner in the sixth inning. He produced the winning run in the eighth inning by lining a deep drive that led the right fielder to crash into the wall and drop to the ground while Delmonico circled the bases. The red-hot rookie has an amazing .382/.452/.691 slash line with five homers and 11 RBI in 15 games. He had a .262 batting average with 12 home runs in 99 games at Triple-A Charlotte before getting the call to the majors.

Sal Romano held the Braves to one run in seven innings while leading his club to a 5-3 win on Friday.

The only damage he allowed was a Matt Adams solo shot in the second inning. The big rookie struck out three batters, walked two and surrendered five base hits in the premium start. It was the best game of his young career. He improves to 3-5 with a 5.42 ERA in nine starts. He draws a tough matchup against the Cubs and Jake Arrieta on Thursday.

Dodgers acquired OF Curtis Granderson and cash considerations from the Mets for a player to be named later or cash considerations.

The trade would seem to be bad news for Joc Pederson, who has really struggled during the second half. Granderson, an impending free agent, has quietly been one of the NL's best hitters since getting off to a slow start in April. He should provide a boost against right-handed pitching for the World Series hopeful Dodgers. Granderson will finish his Mets tenure with a .784 OPS (115 OPS+) and 95 homers over 573 games.

Byron Buxton finished a single shy of the cycle Friday versus the Diamondbacks.

This night is what makes it so hard to give up on his talent. We’re used to seeing players fall a triple short of the cycle, but that was no issue for Buxton, who showcased his speed in a big way and scored three runs in the process. The highlight was his inside-the-park homer in the bottom of the fourth inning. The young outfielder had a chance to finish off the cycle in the seventh inning, but he lined out to second base. Buxton has now hit safely in eight consecutive games.

Aroldis Chapman’s struggles continued Friday against the Red Sox, as he allowed two runs on two hits and a walk over one inning of work.

Chapman was asked to keep the Yankees within one run, but he gave up a leadoff single to Rafael Devers before walking Christian Vazquez. He then ignored the baserunners, so they were able to pull off a double steal before Jackie Bradley, Jr. brought them both home on a single to center. Chapman failed to back up home plate on the play, which resulted in a visit from manager Joe Girardi. The southpaw avoided any further damage, but he’s now allowed two earned runs in three straight appearances for the first time in his career. He now owns a 9.95 ERA over seven appearances against the Red Sox this season. While his hamstring issue was apparently minor, something clearly isn’t right here. One wonders how long his leash is as the Yankees try to fight for a playoff spot.

Rafael Devers went 2-for-4 with two-run homer and two runs scored in Friday’s victory over the Yankees.

Devers launched a two-run homer in the second inning off Jordan Montgomery and singled and scored in the eighth against Aroldis Chapman. The 20-year-old continues to show remarkable poise during his first stint in the majors. He’s now batting .356/.420/.699 batting line with seven homers and 15 RBI through 19 games.

Manny Machado capped off an absolutely epic night at the plate on Friday with a walk-off grand slam, propelling the Orioles to a 9-7 victory over the Angels.

Machado crushed a two-run homer off of Angels' starter Andrew Heaney in the third inning, pulling the O's to within a run at 5-4. He then victimized Heaney again for a solo shot in the fifth. He saved the best for last though, blasting a walk-off grand slam off of Keynan Middleton in the ninth, finishing the night 3-for-5 with seven RBI. Machado's poor luck from earlier in the season has started to even out and he's now slashing .264/.319/.494 with 26 homers and 81 RBI.

Nelson Cruz went 3-for-5 with a home run, two RBI and three runs scored during a 7-1 thumping of the Rays on Friday.

He smacked an RBI double in the first inning, doubled and scored in the fifth and drilled a solo homer in the final frame. For the season he has a .293 batting average with 30 home runs and is second in the majors with 98 RBI. The 37-year-old slugger is on pace to smash his career high of 108 RBI set in 2014 with the Orioles.
