Found March 28, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
PLAYERS: Phil Hughes
TEAMS: New York Yankees
New York Yankees right-hander Phil Hughes has been dealing with a back injury that’s set him back this spring. While it was expected, manager Joe Girardi acknowledged to reporters – including Joel Sherman of The New York Post – yesterday that Hughes will start the regular season on the disabled list. Girardi acknowledges Hughes will start on DL #Yankees — Joel Sherman (@Joelsherman1) March 27, 2013 Girardi added that he liked Hughes’ stuff when he threw his most recent minor league outing. However, the skipper also said he’s leaning toward not using Hughes until after April 6, instead opting to go with Ivan Nova and David Phelps during the first week of the season. Hughes posted an ERA of 4.23 over 32 starts for the Yankees last season. The 26-year-old owns a career ERA of 4.39 over six seasons in the majors. Hughes will join fellow starting pitcher Michael Pineda on the Yankees’ DL to begin the year, along with position players Derek Jeter, Curtis Granderson, Mark Teixeira and Alex Rodriguez.

Lawsuit against Yankees GM Cashman is dropped

The mother of a woman accused of stalking New York Yankees General Manager Brian Cashman has abruptly dropped her lawsuit against him.

Why Yanks will finish LAST in AL East

I have immense respect for the New York Yankees. Derek Jeter and Mariano Rivera -- first-ballot Hall of Famers who have spent their entire careers with the same franchise -- are class personified. Even amid talk of the mythical $189 million ceiling for next year, the Yankees (unlike other franchises) have an enduring commitment to winning, with 27 World Series championships to prove...

Lonn Trost and Yankees cry uncle on StubHub; will allow electronic tickets

Remember the whole to-do this winter about how the Yankees came up with their own ticket exchange system with Ticketmaster, snubbing StubHub? And how the only way Yankee fans were going to be able to print out electronic tickets on the secondary market was with the Yankees Ticket Exchange? And that because of this, StubHub was going to have to open up a location by Yankee Stadium...

Yankees make Lyle Overbay their Man

AL BEast Notebook – March 28 The Yankees finished their Grapefruit League season today, losing 2-1 to the Pirates. After the game, Juan Rivera was released and according to ESPN New York’s Wallace Matthews, Lyle Overbay will be the starting first baseman for Opening Day and for the next six weeks. Well, almost. Their first game is against lefty Jon Lester, so it is likely that...

Jeter will not play in minor league games until next week

Derek Jeter will begin the 2013 season on the disabled list. Jeter last played a game on Saturday and was still sore in his surgically-repaired ankle the following day. The Yankees have already committed to starting the season with their captain on the disabled list. Jeter could miss more then just the Opening Day game against Boston though. Jeter will be out of any game action until...

Deja Vu all over again

The Yankees will enter the 2013 season without an offensive-minded catcher for the first time in about 17 years. The departure of Russell Martin has left much to be desired offensively from the current crop of backstops, mainly Francisco Cervelli – who figures to be the starter -  and likely backup Chris Stewart. The situation this year is very similar to what happened in 1996...

The New York Yankees ARE The Walking Dead

Embracing a new role, Cano ready to go for Yankees

Robinson Cano turned the World Baseball Classic into a personal display. There was a backhanded grab and glove flip to start a double play against Venezuela. There was a home run he crushed off the second deck against Italy. And, in the end, there was an MVP award for helping the Dominican Republic win the international crown. ''He had a great series,'' Yankees...

Johan Santana, Alex Rodriguez Among Worst MLB Contracts Heading Into 2013 Season (Photos)

Baseball fans are witnessing a couple of contract humdingers as Opening Day approaches, with both the Mets and Yankees once again looking precarious thanks to some pricey contracts they handed out. For the Yankees, the culprit is of course Alex Rodriguez, who will make $29 million — more than the Houston Astros’ entire payroll — this season. That’s bad enough, but there...

Vernon Wells: A look back

January 21, 2011. For Angels fans, it is a day that shall live in infamy.   Less than a month into the new year, Mike Napoli and Juan Rivera found themselves bound for the great white north of Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
