Mets signed OF Chris Young to a one-year, $7.25 million contract.

The deal was agreed to last week and then made official Tuesday after the 30-year-old outfielder passed his physical. Young posted a weak .200/.280/.379 batting line in 2013 with the A's, but he's been a high-level performer in the past and the Mets will hope to strike gold on a low-risk one-year pact. Young is likely to appear in both right and center field next season in New York.

Yankees placed RHP Ivan Nova on the 15-day disabled list with a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament.

Nova hasn't decided whether he'll rest and rehab or undergo Tommy John surgery, but the latter is probably an inevitability. It's a tough blow for the Yankees' rotation, as Nova showed glimpses of a potential breakout last season. The Yankees will likely use Vidal Nuno as his rotation replacement for now.

Mets manager Terry Collins said Sunday that Kyle Farnsworth has supplanted Jose Valverde as the team's new closer.

Farnsworth has pitched well for the Mets in the early going, allowing just one run over his first 7 1/3 relief innings. However, his velocity has been declining for a few years now and he hasn't had an effective full season since 2011. It's a move that's unlikely to work out, but the Mets don't have any great options.

Jackie Bradley is expected to remain the Red Sox' starting center fielder after Shane Victorino (hamstring) comes off the disabled list.

There was little doubt at this point, as Bradley has started 10 straight games in center field and Grady Sizemore is starting to settle in as the left fielder. Bradley is batting just .220/.339/.280 with no homers and two steals this season, but, according to manager John Farrell, has "solidified the defense in center field for us." Daniel Nava is hitting just .136/.239/.271 and has options remaining, making him a "prime candidate to be sent down," writes Michael Silverman of the Boston Herald.

White Sox manager Robin Ventura said Saturday that Adam Eaton (hamstring) will sit out at least three games.

Eaton injured both his hamstring and ankle on Friday and then aggravated the hamstring ailment Saturday. The White Sox are calling it a mild strain, but they want to be safe and hold the outfielder out for at least a few days. "It’s really right behind his knee," Ventura said. "Probably a few days just to monitor and see. It should be back in time. He just couldn’t get out of the box. When he’s pushing to get out of the box is when he really feels it. He can run and probably run better than most. It’s just safer not to run him out there and maybe do something worse."

Ike Davis finished 2-for-3 with a walk and two runs scored Saturday in his Pirates debut.

Davis doubled in his first at-bat, walked in his second at-bat, and singled in his third at-bat. He's expected to start versus right-handers and seems poised to hit near the middle of the Pirates' batting order, making him a worthwhile add in most mixed fantasy leagues. Davis tallied 32 home runs and 90 RBI in 2012 with the Mets.
Apr 19 - 11:50 PM

Jordan Lyles limited the Phillies to one (unearned) run in seven innings Saturday in the Rockies' 3-1 win.

Lyles was sharp, scattering five hits and a walk over his seven innings. He struck out just two batters and owns an underwhelming 14/6 K/BB ratio over 23 2/3 innings this season, but the other stats have been great. The 23-year-old will carry a 3-0 start, 3.04 ERA, and 1.14 WHIP into his next scheduled outing on the road against the Dodgers.
Apr 19 - 11:12 PM

Chris Archer tossed 6 2/3 innings of one-run ball in the Rays' 16-1 win over the Yankees on Saturday.

It was a big bounceback outing from the 25-year-old right-hander, who was hammered for seven runs in five innings Monday by the Orioles. He stymied the Yankees offense to three hits and zero walks Saturday at Tropicana Field, striking out four batters. Archer will carry a 2-1 record, 3.65 ERA, and 1.22 WHIP into his next outing in Chicago against the White Sox.

According to ESPN New York's Adam Rubin, the Mets are likely to make a change at closer.

Valverde surrendered three runs Saturday against the Braves in his latest of a string of rough outings. Mets manager Terry Collins said he would address his players before making an official announcement to the media. Vic Black has been putting up zeroes at Triple-A, but his control is still an issue. The Mets might go with a committee.
Apr 19 - 10:51 PM

Ervin Santana held the Mets to one run over seven innings Saturday in the Braves' 7-5 victory.

Santana was again excellent, scattering six hits and two walks over his seven frames while racking up seven strikeouts. He's 2-0 with a 0.86 ERA, 0.81 WHIP, and 24/4 K/BB ratio through 21 innings (three starts) with Atlanta. A home start against the Reds is next.
Apr 19 - 10:43 PM

Ryan Braun went 3-for-5 with two homers and three RBI in Saturday's 8-7 comeback win over the Pirates.

Braun hit a solo shot in the seventh inning to get the Brewers back within one run and then slugged a go-ahead two-run bomb in the top of the ninth. He boasts a .919 OPS, five homers, and 13 RBI in 16 games this season, and seems to be managing his thumb injury just fine.
Apr 19 - 10:30 PM

Francisco Rodriguez picked up his sixth save of the season Saturday in the Brewers' win over the Pirates.

K-Rod tossed a perfect ninth inning to lock down Milwaukee's 13th win in 18 games. He has not been scored upon in 2014 and has been among the most valuable fantasy closers through the first three weeks of the season. It was K-Rod's 310th career save, tying him with Goose Gossage for 20th on the all-time major league leaderboard.
