CC Sabathia is apparently no longer just the Yankees’ ace, he’s also now an “idea pitcher” for MLB 14: The Show.

The New York Yankees hoped Ivan Nova’s completion of the 2013 season was a sign of things to come. Maybe, just maybe he had figured out pitching at a high level for an extended period of time.After a not-so-great spring training and two starts into the regular season, it is apparent to me at least, that Nova is never going to be an elite starter.

The New York Yankees may have won Monday’s match-up against the Baltimore Orioles, but the bigger news was what had happened the day before to their closer David Robertson. The heir to closer Mariano Rivera pulled his left-groin while closing out a 6-4 win over the Toronto Blue Jays.
It forces all of us to throw another inning later, so obviously, that’s not good for the whole...

It was announced yesterday that New York traded the 26-year-old infielder to Minnesota in exchange for 20-year-old left-handed pitcher Miguel Sulbaran. The Yankees had 10 days to either trade Nunez or place him on waivers after he was designated for assignment right before the season started...
Majors contributor Ryan DePaul manage to catch what looks to be some kind of foreign substance on the palm of Yankees starter Michael Pineda. No word yet on what exactly it was but Pineda went 6 innings giving up 1 run on 5 hits with 5 strikeouts. h/t: Ryan DePaul
David Robertson was the easy choice to replace Mariano Rivera as the Yankees’ closer, but now that Robertson is out with a groin injury manager Joe Girardi isn’t sure who’ll be taking over ninth-inning duties.
Asked this morning who’ll serve as the Yankees’ closer, Girardi told Danny Knobler of ESPN New York: “That’s a great question.”

Something sounds different at Yankee Stadium. And, no, I’m not talking about the obvious lack of “Enter Sandman” when Shawn Kelley jogged to the mound to close out the game Monday.
I’m talking about the lack of Bald Vinny.
You know, Bald Vinny, right? Sure, you do. He’s the bald guy in sunglasses out in Section 203 who leads the New York Yankees faithful in their...
With a leadoff single to right field in the third inning of his New York Yankees 6-4 win over the Blue Jays in Toronto on Sunday, Derek Jeter tied Hall of Famer Paul Molitor for eighth place on the all-time hits list. One inning later, he singled a grounder the same direction, again off starter Drew Hutchison, to have sole possession with 3,320 career hits. In what he has deemed...
The New York Yankees had their first home game of the season on Monday, and lots of cool stuff happened during the pregame ceremonies.

NEW YORK (AP) Derek Jeter gave Yangervis Solarte some assistance with Yankee Stadium tradition, then the rookie helped make the captain a winner in his final home opener Monday as New York beat the Baltimore Orioles 4-2.
