Derek Jeter made a little more history on Tuesday night against the Rangers …
That was only the 10th double of the season for Jeter, but it was the 535th of his career. The all-time doubles list in Yankees history now reads: Jeter (535), Lou Gehrig (534), Bernie Williams (449), Don Mattingly (442), Babe Ruth (424), Joe DiMaggio (389), Jorge Posada (379), Robinson Cano (375), Mickey Mantle (344).
Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports that the Dodgers are close to signing reliever Joe Kelly. Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports that the deal is for three years and around $25 million.
Kelly, 30, posted a 4.39 ERA with a 68/32 K/BB ratio in 65 2/3 innings out of the Red Sox bullpen during the regular season in 2018. He turned it up a notch in the postseason, limiting the opposition to two runs (one earned) in 11 1/3 innings with a 13/0 K/BB ratio.
With the Red Sox, Kelly mostly pitched seventh and eighth innings ahead of closer Craig Kimbrel. He will likely do the same ahead of closer Kenley Jansen, sharing the workload with Pedro Báez.
