Found May 11, 2013 on Bronx Pinstripes:
PLAYERS: David Adams
TEAMS: New York Yankees
David Adams will join the Yankees in the coming days The David Adams era is set to begin in New York. Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News reported on Saturday morning that the 25-year-old Adams will join the Yankees as a full-time third baseman when he is eligible to be added to the major league roster on May 15. Adams is hitting .325/.411/.494 with two home runs and nine RBI in 23 games with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre this season and has seen time at first, second, and third base. Because Adams was released and re-signed prior to the end of spring training MLB rules prohibit Yankees from adding him to the 40-man roster again before May 15.

Joba, Mo have tense exchange

One thing to know about Yankees reliever Joba Chamberlain: he really doesn't like it when he gets shushed, even by the greatest closer of all-time. 

Yankees prank Mariano Rivera with chalk outline in return to KC (Photo)

On Friday, the New York Yankees returned to Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City to face the Royals for the first time since last year when Mariano Rivera suffered a torn ACL while shagging fly balls in the outfield. Rivera's teammates had a friendly prank waiting for him as he returned to the "scene of the crime", with a chalk outline in the spot where he fell and a sign...

Mariano Rivera Laughs, Poses Next to Chalk Outline at Site of Last Year’s ACL Injury (Video)

Not many MLB players can laugh off a season-ending ACL injury, but Mariano Rivera isn’t like most baseball players. Rivera’s torn ACL occurred at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City last year when the legendary closer was shagging fly balls. The Yankees returned to KC on Friday and New York bullpen coach Mike Harkey had some fun by drawing a Rivera-shaped chalk outline on the warning...

Dellin Betances starts over

Last night in Scranton, the eternal super-prospect Dellin Betances emerged from the bullpen and threw two scoreless innings, peaked at 97 on the radar, and walked only one batter. Only one. Been a long time since an appearance by Dellin Betances only produced one base on balls.That's because Dellin didn't start. But maybe he started his second life. The first one died from...

Looks Like The Mariano Rivera and Joba Chamberlain ‘Feud’ Is Over

It seems like New York Yankees pitchers’ Mariano Rivera and Joba Chamberlain have made nice and their short lived ‘feud’ is over. The Yankees PR department pulled off a great PR move by Tweeting out a photo of the two pitchers hugging in the clubhouse on Sunday morning singling that all is well. It was reported that the two got into a tiff on Saturday prior to the Yankees game...

Joba Chamberlain gets in argument with Mariano Rivera

Reportedly, before the Yankees game against the Royals on Saturday, Joba Chamberlain and Mariano Rivera exchanged words in the clubhouse.  Apparently Rivera was having trouble hearing the media’s questions because Chamberlain was speaking to loud to his family.  Rivera said “Joba! Yo! Bro! Shhh. Stop it.” Joba was having none of that from Rivera.   Chamberlain responded...

Yankees game 35 lineup: 5/11/13

After notching his 500th career win last night as a manager, Joe Girardi and the Yankees look to take game two of a three game set against the Royals tonight. Andy Pettitte, who has cooled off since his hot start, gets the ball for New York against former Ray James Shields. Look for Robinson Cano to have a good game, as he has absolutely owned Shields throughout his career. In 75...

Did Joba Chamberlain apologize to Mariano Rivera or blow him off

Joba-gate rears its head in the Yankees ClubhouseCredit: AP As Joba-gate (or shush-gate) sweeps the (first place) New York Yankees clubhouse, it remains to be seen whether Joba Chamberlain realizes that what he did was wrong, or even realizes he did something. Perhaps appropriate that we’re talking about this on Mother’s Day, given that mothers are ones that do a lot of “shushing”...

Yankees’ Edwin Nunez on 15-day DL, Granderson rehabbing in Triple-A

The New York Yankees have yet another entry to the disabled list. On Sunday, May 12, the Yankees placed infielder Edwin Nunez on the 15-day disabled list due to tightness in his rib cage. Nunez last played on May 5, so he is eligible to return to the lineup on May 20. Indications are that Nunez should return by then. MLB.com’s Bryan Hoch reported that Nunez strained...

Mariano Rivera found a chalk outline at Kaufman Stadium (Photo)

For the first time since his ACL injury in 2012, Yankees closer Mariano Rivera found himself shagging fly balls at Kaufman Stadium with New York in town to play the Kansas City Royals. Before he came out, Rivera's teammates decided to play a funny prank on him by hanging up a sign that says "No Mo Zone" and a chalk-outline of himself: (Courtesy of Busted Coverage)

Joe Girardi Thinking Outside The Box Has Yankees Winning

On Wednesday night, Joe Girardi batted David Phelps eighth in the lineup ahead of rookie Austin Romine. The part I have never seen the Yankees do in any World Series game or interleague matchup was the pitcher batting ahead of the catcher. Of course, it’s not unprecedented, and that drew the ire of some critics. Tony LaRussa made a living on batting the pitcher eighth and many...

Yankees 4, Royals 2

Robinson Cano finally hit a home run at Kauffman Stadium, Vernon Wells went deep for the second straight game and the New York Yankees beat the Kansas City Royals 4-2 on Sunday to wrap up a three-game sweep. Hiroki Kuroda (5-2) allowed only a sacrifice fly by the Royals' Alex Gordon and an RBI groundout by Alcides Esocbar over 7 2-3 innings. The right-hander at one point went...
