ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) Left-hander Chris Capuano has been designated for assignment by the New York Yankees after retiring only two of 10 batters he faced in a spot start.

Series against Orioles could determine New York Yankees’ fate

It’s time for the Bronx Bombers to live up to their name. The team faces their biggest threat as they begin their three game series against the number one team in both the AL East and Central division, the Baltimore Orioles.
