CURTIS GRANDERSON jogged to first base after being hit on his right forearm as if it was a minor annoyance. Back at the ballpark in a brace a couple of hours later, it was clear the New York Yankees had a pretty big power problem on their hands. In his first at-bat of spring training, the slugger broke his arm when he was hit by a pitch from Toronto's J.A. Happ in the bottom of the first inning Sunday, and is expected to be out until early May. "Grandy is not a bat you say is easy to replace, but we're going to have to find a way," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said.

Mariano Rivera ended all conversation about the greatest closer in major-league history on Saturday when he tied the career saves record with the 601st of his glittering career in a 7-6 win over Toronto. The Yankee immortal matched Trevor Hoffman as the all-time leader. "[No. 602 will be] the big one because it just puts the final stamp on it that he's the greatest closer of all time," New York manager Joe Girardi said. Come on Joe. Who'd you think it was, Luis Arroyo ?

Detroit Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski says he has made a contract offer to free agent Johnny Damon. Dombrowski confirmed the offer in a telephone interview with the Associated Press after telling reporters in Lakeland, Fla., that the Tigers were interested in signing the outfielder. Damon, 36, hit .286 with 24 homers for the New York Yankees last season. He likely would bat leadoff for the Tigers, filling the void left when Detroit dealt Curtis Granderson to the Yankees.

Zach Miner won the battle of rookie pitchers, but Francisco Liriano might have an excuse. The Detroit Tigers roughed up Liriano again in a 9-3 victory over the visiting Minnesota Twins last night. Detroit (76-36) is now a season-best 40 games over .500. "We knew before the season that we could win some games," Curtis Granderson said. "We didn't expect this. " Liriano (12-3) has a 7.63 ERA against Detroit this season, more than five times higher than his ERA (1.39) against the rest of the majors.

Jose Contreras pitched a three-hitter for his first career shutout and Jim Thome and A.J. Pierzynski homered last night as the Chicago White Sox ended Justin Verlander's seven-game winning streak and beat the visiting Detroit Tigers, 5-0. Contreras (11-4) didn't give up a hit until Curtis Granderson doubled with two outs in the sixth in the opener of a three-game series between Detroit, the team with the best record in baseball, and the defending World Series champion White Sox. The White Sox cut Detroit's lead in the American League Central to 7 1/2 games and sent the Tigers to their third straight loss.

DETROIT - Curtis Granderson made two spectacular catches against his former team, and A.J. Burnett came through when the Yankees needed him most, leading New York past the Detroit Tigers, 10-1, Tuesday night to send their AL division series back to the Bronx for a decisive Game 5. Derek Jeter rebounded from a game-ending strikeout Monday, putting the Yankees ahead to stay with a two-run double in the third inning. Granderson also had an RBI double, and New York broke it open with six runs in the eighth.

THE NEW YORK Yankees escaped from Camden Yards with their lead in the AL East intact, and as a bonus, slugger Curtis Granderson worked his way out of a slump. Granderson came off the bench to hit his 35th homer and drive in five runs, and visiting New York beat the Baltimore Orioles Sunday, 13-3, to regain sole possession of first place in the division and earn an important split of the season series. Derek Jeter also homered for the Yankees, who lead the Orioles by one game with 22 left.

NEW YORK - For the second time in three games, Ben Revere, leftfielder, made himself known. The converted centerfielder made an incredible diving catch Monday on a Curtis Granderson line drive slicing toward the left-field corner. In a span of just three days, Revere is responsible for the Phillies' two best defensive plays of the first week of their season. For whatever reason, he appears to be reading balls off the bat more efficiently in left field than he did in the position he played on a regular basis for the Phillies in the previous two years.

The Detroit Tigers had lost two games in a row, and Justin Verlander considered it his job to keep the streak from reaching three. "Absolutely. We lost our last two games, and I really just wanted to go out there and make a statement," he said last night after leading the visiting Tigers to a 7-2 victory over the Boston Red Sox. "Everybody on this team can play that role. I just happened to be the guy today. " Verlander scattered six hits over 7 2/3 innings, and Brandon Inge and Magglio Ordonez homered.

Deciding the AL Central champion will take a while. Fausto Carmona struck out a career-high 10 and finally got his 14th win as the Cleveland Indians regained a share of the division lead with Detroit by beating the visiting Tigers, 5-2, last night to split the two-game showdown series. Carmona (14-7) dominated Detroit, allowing one earned run and four hits in eight innings. Staked to an early 3-1 lead, Carmona unleashed his breaking pitches on the Tigers, retiring 13 of 14 in one stretch, and earned his first win since beating Boston, 1-0, on July 25. "Whew, Carmona was something," Tigers third baseman Brandon Inge said.

The St. Louis Cardinals have given general manager John Mozeliak a two-year contract extension that runs through 2018. We're not surprised that the 45-year-old executive - who in six seasons has two NL pennants and a World Series win, in 2011 - got a measly two-year extension. After all, this is the "Show-Me" state, or better put, "What-Have-You-Done-For-Me-Lately" state. And 2011 was three years ago. Mozeliak is on board with that philosophy. "I think what we've been able to accomplish here is something we all take a lot of pride in," he said.

The Seattle Mariners say they cannot confirm any details of a potential deal with free-agent second baseman Robinson Cano. The team said Friday morning it will announce if an agreement is "completed and finalized" with the Yankees star. The statement came in response to an ESPN report Friday morning that Cano and the Mariners had reached agreement on a $240 million, 10-year contract pending a physical. Cano's reported deal would be one of the largest in baseball history and a coup for a franchise that has gone a dozen years since making the postseason.

It looks as if help is finally coming to the Bronx. Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira and third baseman Kevin Youkilis could be coming off the disabled list in time for Friday's game vs. the Red Sox. "That's the plan," general manager Brian Cashman said Wednesday. "In Tex's case, he really needed a spring training because he didn't have one. With Kevin, it was more like knocking the rust off. It'll be good to have them back healthy and at the big-league level, where they belong.

MIGUEL CABRERA received a standing ovation after flying out and striking out in his only two at-bats Wednesday night, and leaving the Tigers' game against the Kansas City Royals in the fourth inning with the Triple Crown in sight. Cabrera high-fived his teammates as he entered the Detroit dugout, then walked back to the top step and waved his helmet as a crowd of mostly Royals fans gave him a standing ovation. Cabrera, whose Tigers won, 1-0, finished the season with a .330 average, 44 homers and 139 RBI, wrapping up baseball's first Triple Crown since Boston's Carl Yastrzemski in 1967.

NEW YORK - There was little question Detroit's Justin Verlander would unanimously win the American League Cy Young Award. Now, the far more intriguing question: Will he take the MVP, too? "Do I think it's possible? Yes. Would I like to win it? Of course," Verlander said during a conference call. "It's kind of a weird scenario. " No starting pitcher has won the MVP trophy since Roger Clemens in 1986, with Dennis Eckersley the last reliever to get it in 1992. Many say pitchers shouldn't win the MVP, period, contending they already have their own award.
