Found May 07, 2013 on Fox Sports:
New York Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira says he could be ready to take on-field batting practice for the first time Friday since hurting his right wrist two months ago. Also, Alex Rodriguez worked out for the second consecutive day at New York's complex in Tampa, Fla. Teixeira took batting practice indoors, ran and fielded grounders. Pitcher Ivan Nova, out since late April because of tightness in his right triceps, expects to pitch two innings Wednesday in his first extended spring training game. Catcher Francisco Cervelli, who broke his right hand 11 days ago, says the cast will be removed in three weeks. Rodriguez is coming back from hip surgery in January. Teixeira was injured on March 5.

We are going to Colorado to play shorthanded

Yankeetorial: A-Rod steps outside his pod and draws immediate fire from the watchdogs of socio-economic justice

He was the lone rehabbing player down in the Tampa clinic - the Yankee Hebrew Home at Riverside-South - to step outside the security fence and sign autographs for fans. He did this for about 30 minutes. It drew reporters the way a melted popsicle attracts ants. Naturally, the brotherhood...

Similarities between 2013 Yankees and 2009 Mets

The first thought readers will get after reading this headline is how I am knocking the Yankees. It could not be further from the truth. I am actually giving the team credit for its 18-12 start, something that did not seem possible given the amount of injuries the team has had to deal with. It all started with the Derek Jeter broken ankle in the 2012 postseason and continued with...
