MLB Injury News:
New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter continues to progress
toward his eventual return, as the captain took batting practice for the first
time since suffering his spring training setback yesterday, according to The Associated Press.
Early in the spring, Jeter and the Yankees expressed
optimism that the shortstop would be able to rejoin the team by Opening Day. However,
the veteran experienced a setback in the ankle he injured during last year’s
playoffs toward the end of spring training, and he’s been recovering since.
He continued that recovery yesterday, as he resumed hitting
on the field for the first time since being shut down. He took 32 swings in
batting practice, and he also ran the bases for the second consecutive day. Beyond
his time in the cage and on the bases, Jeter also fielded 45 grounders at short
and threw to first base for the first time since his setback.
This is all considered good news as Jeter continues to
recover, but there is still no timeframe for his return. There was speculation
of a May 1 target date, but neither the Yankees nor Jeter have mentioned that

New York Yankees pitcher Ivan Nova is the real deal.

At least that is what everybody initially thought of him.
When Nova hit the major league level back in 2010, he showed some promise. Pitching just 42 innings in total, he went 1-2 with a 4.50 ERA. It was a small sample size where he was brought up at random to fill-in as a reliever, and a...
From D.J. Short:While Curtis Granderson threw today for this first time since his broken right forearm, another big bat in the Yankees’ lineup is inching closer to a return.
According to the Associated Press, Mark Teixeira hopes to be cleared to take “dry swings” tomorrow following a visit to hand and wrist specialist Dr. Melvin Rosenwasser. The 33-year-old has been sidelined...
They're the little team that believed. The pluck-filled Yankees, enjoying their underfunded, underdog status, are feeling pretty prime these days. Pretty pretty pretty prime. A bunch of knowitalls said this team was dead. But look: Riding tall at .500, with a two-game, rain-helped sweep in Swishertown. Three in a row, baby. Three in a row. Meanwhile, we won't have to worry...
Yankees manager Joe Girardi criticized Major League Baseball for how it schedules series during the early part of the season when inclement weather is prevalent.
The New York Yankees offense could be getting a big boost soon. First baseman Mark Teixeira expects to be cleared as early as Friday to start swinging the bat as soon as Friday. The Yankees slugger has been out of the lineup after suffering a wrist injury in the World Baseball Classic last month. This news is the latest in a sting of good news for the Yankees offense the team received...
New York Yankees outfielder Curtis Granderson has taken the
next step in his recovery from a fractured forearm, as he resumed throwing

Granderson told his followers on Twitter that the session
went “really well,” adding that it was “another good sign, and a...

Early this week, with the Eve-Emps on the verge of elimination from the 2013 AL pennant race, we pondered orchestrating a worldwide juju relief mission of mercy - an intervention known by some as "charging the mound."Well, it worked. The Yankees are 3-1, baby, three-and-one, since we mentioned the - um - thing. We're not going to burst our britches on this, because...
Carlos Carrasco hasn’t pitched in a Major League game since 2011. After allowing a grand slam against the Royals, he threw at the head of Billy Bulter and was tossed and suspended for 5-games. However, he did not serve it … Continue reading →
Clearly, even Mother Nature had seen just about all she could stomach of the Yankees’ geriatric merry-go-round this week, washing out the last two nights of what was easily the most disappointing home opening series at Progressive Field since the time everybody just said “screw it” and played at Miller Park instead.
It’s now officially been a full five years since the Indians...
