Eovaldi gives the Yankees a power arm with major upside. But the 25-year-old hasn’t put it all together yet. Despite pairing a fastball that touches 98 mph with a sharp slider, he strikes out just 6.3 hitters per nine innings, and he gave up a National League-high 223 hits last season. Still, he threw 199.2 innings last season. That’s important for the Yankees, who will also go into spring training with Masahiro Tanaka, Michael Pineda and CC Sabathia in the rotation. All three of them come with big health concerns as each spent a significant portion of the 2014 season on the disabled list. Jones gives the Yankees insurance in the outfield, first base and DH. The 33-year-old played 129 games at first base for the Marlins last season, hitting .246 with 15 homers and 53 RBI — better statistics, actually, than starting Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira, who also spent much of the year battling injuries. Jones has played 305 games in the outfield, but hasn't been a regular there since 2011. German, 22, ...

SCHERZER WINS 12TH, AND NATHAN STRIKES OUT 3 IN THE 9TH!!! Nick Castellanos drove in the tying and go-ahead runs with a double in the sixth inning and Max Scherzer won his fourth straight decision, leading the Detroit Tigers to a 6-4 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Thursday night. Scherzer (12-3) tied teammate Rick Porcello and New York's Masahiro Tanaka for the league lead in wins. He allowed three runs and six hits over seven innings and struck out 11. It was the fourth time this season and 22nd in his career that the reigning AL Cy Young Award winner had double digits in strikeouts. Scherzer, the winning pitcher in the All-Star game, is 4-0 with a 2.21 ERA in six starts since giving up 10 runs over four innings in an 11-4 home loss to Kansas City on June 17. That came just five days after the seven-year veteran posted his first complete game and shutout in the major leagues with a three-hitter against the Chicago White Sox.

Right behind the Yankees captain in jersey sales since Opening Day, in the Top 20 list announced by the league Thursday, are San Francisco Giants catcher Buster Posey, Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw, Boston Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz and his teammate Dustin Pedroia. The Dodgers have the most players on the list with three. Joining Kershaw (third) is Yasiel Puig (ninth) and Hyun-Jin Ryu (18th). Newcomers to the list include Atlanta Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman (12th), Yankees pitcher Masahiro Tanaka (14th) and Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo (15th), who is hoping to be named Thursday as the final player on the National League's All-Star roster.
