getty images Brett Gardner suffered a strained left oblique in the first inning of Thursday’s game against Baltimore. The injury occurred on a check swing. Garnder’s season could be over if the Yankees fail to make the post season as these injuries typically take two to three weeks to come back from. Left oblique strain for Brett Gardner. That can easily be a 2-3 week problem, or more. Did it on checkswing. — Daniel Barbarisi (@DanBarbarisi) September 13, 2013   If Gardner is in fact done for the season he will finish with a .273/.344/.416 line with eight home runs and 81 runs scored.

Jeter to DL, season over

Derek Jeter was placed on the disabled list today with ankle soreness, effectively ending his season. It’s been a hard year for the 39-year-old shortstop, who has called this season a “nightmare.” After breaking his left ankle in game one of the 2012 ALCS, he re-fractured it in March, strained his quad in July and then strained his calf in August. In just 17 games, Jeter went...

Reflecting Back 12 Years Ago

Do you remember where you were 12 years ago today? I do. I was in my second grade class with all of my friends just having a normal day like everyone else when chaos started to occur. Teachers went to meet outside to try and grasp what was actually going on. After the second plane hit it was clear that this was a deliberate attack against our nation. Was there more to come? Were...

How the Yankees got to one game back in AL Wild Card?

New York Yankees Fans (Photo credit: Keith Allison) As of today, the New York Yankees sit one game back in the AL Wild Card standings. And this has made Yankees haters confused, and of course angry again. As many have asked me, how are the too old, too injured and already declared postseason-less Bronx Bombers still very much alive? Well i told them that just like in life, timing...

Previewing The Final 15 Games Of The Yankees 2013 Season

If someone told you a month ago that, with two weeks left in the season the Yankees would only be a game out of the second Wild Card spot, would you have believed them?  Oh, come on. You know you wouldn't have.That is exactly where the Yankees are. There are 15 games left and, if they win most of them, they will be, at the very least, playing in the one game playoff.It won...

Yankees' Alex Rodriguez says his hamstring is OK

New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez was forced to exit Tuesday's game early after tweaking his left hamstring.

Rodriguez told reporters -- including Bryan Hoch of MLB.com -- that he could feel a knot in the lower part of his...

Report: Yanks face record luxury tax

The New York Yankees will have to pay a record $29.1 million luxury tax penalty this season, USA Today reports. Putting it into perspective, the newspaper notes that sum is about the equivalent of the entire Houston Astros' payroll for this season. The Yankees' 2013 payroll is estimated to be $236.2 million, well above the $178 million tax threshold. Alex Rodriguez, Vernon...

Still doubt that Jeter will return in 2014

He is Derek Jeter so of course he was going to make it back for Opening Day. And when he refractured his left ankle the recalibration was to early in the second half — ahead of schedule for sure — to help save the Yankees’ season. Jeter wasn’t going to be stopped by quad and calf setbacks and even this latest ankle misery hardly diluted the belief that somehow some way he...

Yankees believe Austin Romine dealing with concussion

The New York Yankees fear reserve catcher Austin Romine suffered a concussion during last night's contest against the Baltimore Orioles. Romine initially passed the concussion tests the team administered, but he was ultimately lifted from the game after feeling nauseous behind the plate, according to Bryan Hoch of MLB.com. Romine entered the game in the seventh to replace...

Alex Rodriguez Voted ‘Face of Baseball’ in Poll Orchestrated by ESPN.com

Who is the “Face of Baseball?” That was the question that the folks at ESPN.com wanted answered, so they turned to Turnkey Intelligence, one of America’s most prominent sports-polling firms. The results were not only interesting, but they might also be enough to keep MLB commissioner Bud Selig up at night. ESPN.com reports that Alex Rodriguez was the first player named by 22...

A-Rod's lawyers fear MLBPA won’t support in appeals process

A small army of attorneys including veteran sports lawyer David Cornwell and brash New York criminal defense attorney Joe Tacopina will advise Alex Rodriguez when the appeal of his suspension begins on Sept. 30.
