New York Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez had his four-game suspension reduced to three games following his appeal and issued an apology on Monday for his role in the brawl with the Detroit Tigers on Aug. 24.

"The heat of the moment and my desire to protect my teammates led me to commit some errors during the brawl," Sanchez wrote. "It's an incident I regret and from which I have learned. I know to some these may be mere words, but they are words that I feel the need to express because I sincerely feel this way, and for respect to you, the fans, the Yankees organization, the Detroit Tigers and the game of Baseball."

The Tigers, who are 'open for business,' have already received trade interest in first baseman Miguel CabreraMLB reporter Jon Heyman wrote Nov. 7.

According to Heyman, Detroit is listening to all trade proposals and has received the most interest in 2B Ian Kinsler and outfielder J.D. Martinez, both of whom the Tigers would prefer to keep.

Detroit Tigers GM Al Avila told local reporters in early October that he will be looking to cut payroll and shake up his roster before next season.

"We want to get younger," he said. "We want to get leaner. We want to run the organization without having to go over our means."

Who's Pitching for the Tigers: RHP Anibal Sanchez (6-11, 6.26) will make his 18th start and 26th appearance of the season Sunday. He has started 11 times against New York in his career with a 4-5 record and 4.45 ERA. He gave up one run in six innings against the Chicago White Sox his last time out after pitching four shutout innings in his final four innings of a start against the White Sox. Sanchez no longer throws his fastball in the mid-90s. He needs to spot his low-90s fastball and be precise with his secondary pitches to be successful.

New York Yankees RHP Michael Pineda continued a strong month of June by pitching six innings of two-run ball, striking out eight batters in a 4-1 loss to the Detroit Tigers on Sunday at Yankee Stadium.

Since allowing six runs and nine hits in 3 2/3 innings on May 28, Pineda (3-7) has began to turn a corner. He is 1-1 with a 2.89 ERA in three starts in June, striking out 20 batters in 18 2/3 innings.

"My slider, the last couple of starts, is good," said Pineda, whose 5.88 ERA is his lowest since May 6. "It's way better than the first couple of months. I'm a little more consistent with my slider, and my fastball location, too. It's good."

A loss, and then a long flight to Denver. After a tough weekend to close out a rugged stretch, the New York Yankees were actually looking forward to getting on the plane.

"It's good. A day to rest, just to relax and get it going the next day. It's been a while," outfielder Carlos Beltran said.

The Yankees finished up playing 40 games in 41 days when they were shut down by rookie Michael Fulmer and the Detroit Tigers 4-1 Sunday. They're off Monday before playing two games against Colorado at Coors Field.

The New York Yankees' three middle infielders helped lead the Yankees to a 5-4 win over the Detroit Tigers on Thursday at Comerica Park.

Rob Refsnyder started at second base and started a four-run seventh-inning rally with a tiebreaking RBI single, then scored on Jacoby Ellsbury's two-run triple that gave New York a 5-1 lead.

But it was the defense of Didi Gregorius, who entered the game as a defensive replacement in the eighth inning, and Starlin Castro, who started at shortstop but moved to second base once Gregorius entered, that saved the game.

CC Sabathia went six-plus innings, Jacoby Ellsbury hit a three-run triple and Carlos Beltran a two-run homer as the Yankees beat the Tigers 8-4 in Detroit. >>Read the recap at SNY.tv

  • Sabathia got the win in his first regular-season start since going into alcohol rehab last fall. He allowed three runs and four hits with three strikeouts in the longest outing by a Yankees starter this season.
  • The Yankees bullpen was strong again. Dellin Betances pitched a scoreless eighth and Andrew Miller a scoreless ninth in handing Detroit its first loss of the season.
  • Starlin Castro, 26, was 2-for-4 and got his 1,000th career hit. He is the seventh-youngest player since 1969 to do so and beat Derek Jeter by 78 days.
  • Alex Rodriguez hit his first homer of the season in the first.

Chris Carelli, SNY.TV Facebook | Twitter | About Me | Archives

It took five games, but the Yankees finally received a six-inning effort from one of their starters, and arguably from their least likely source in Sabathia. Sabathia's start wasn't exactly pretty, but it was effective and after four less than inspiring efforts before him, the Yankees will take it. The better news is that the Yankees once again put plenty of runs on the board, and the backend of the bullpen put up more scoreless innings. Of their five games thus far, the Yankees received the most balanced performance from beginning to end.

The Yankees got shut out by the Tigers, 4-0, in Detroit on Friday afternoon.

  • Luis Severino surrendered three earned runs on 10 hits over five innings of work. He struck out five and did not walk a batter.
  • Miguel Cabrera hit a solo run home run off of Luis Cessa in the seventh inning.
  • The Yankees only managed three hits, both singles. Jacoby Ellsbury, Mark Teixeira and Brett Gardner picked up the only hits. Jordan Zimmermann tossed seven scorless for Detroit.
  • The Yankees drew four walks.

Chris Carelli: The Yankees offense was as cold as the weather at Comerica Park today after scoring 24 runs in their previous two games. That's not to take away anything from Tigers' starter Zimmermann, who was very good keeping the Yanks off the base paths.

Buck Farmer allowed two hits, one walk and struck out one in three shutout innings for Detroit. He's a longshot for the Tigers rotation but in the mix to be a reliever.

ESPN's Jim Bowden believes free-agent OF Yoenis Cespedes is close to signing a new contract, though as many as 10 teams have interest in acquiring him (Jan. 17).

Meanwhile, Mets manager Terry Collins said Cespedes wants to come back to New York (Jan. 18).

"I talked to Sandy (Alderson) today, and hopefully we'll continue to move forward [in those negotiations]," Collins told Barry Bloom of MLB.com on Sunday. "I don't know where Cespedes is at contract-wise with anybody else, but I know he wants to come back to New York if he can. He's a great player and we'd love to have him back."

The Detroit Tigers have acquired outfielder Cameron Maybin from the Atlanta Braves in exchange for left-handers Ian Krol and Gabe Speier.

The 28-year-old Maybin returns to the organization that drafted him. The Tigers took Maybin in the first round in 2005, and he made his major league debut for Detroit in 2007 before being traded to the Marlins as a key prospect in the deal that brought Miguel Cabrera to the Tigers.

Maybin hit .267 with 10 homers, 59 RBIs and 23 steals for the Braves this year.
