A "rogue administrator" took over the official Facebook accounts of Major League Baseball teams and posted absurd messages for all fans to see Thursday.
Tops among those updates was that Derek Jeter had undergone a sex change operation.
The post read: "We regret to inform our fans that Derek Jeter will miss the rest of the season with sexual reassignment surgery. He promises to come back stronger than ever in 2013 as Minnie Mantlez."
The Giants Facebook account had an offensive comment about Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy, according to screen shots posted on various blogs.
The Washington Nationals page said: "We're going back to Montreal. SEE YA SUCKERS!"
Facebook issued a statement saying that a "single rogue administrator" was to blame for the unauthorized posts.
"Our team responded quickly and worked with our partners to eliminate the spam caused by this attack," a Facebook spokesperson said in a statement. "This was a unique, isolated incident and we are always working to improve our systems to better protect our users and their data."
The Yankees Facebook page addressed the incident and acknowledged the fake message on Thursday evening.
"We apologize for anything inappropriate that appeared on the Yankees' Facebook page," the statement said. "The Yankees' Facebook page is controlled by Major League Baseball Advanced Media. They are looking into the false post in cooperation with Facebook."
