The New York Yankees, owners of a 3-4 record and a 2 game deficit in the AL East is looking for some good news, any good news, and they seem to have found it in the progress of short stop Derek Jeterâ€™s rehab.
Advancing to running on the field today and responding nicely to the drills, the Yankees have scheduled batting practice Wednesday for the aging veteran.
Rehabbing a broken ankle, it is a long, hard road for someone of his age, but it looks as if he very well could be donning some Yankees pinstripes come May 1st.
In 2012, Jeter played 159 games, gaining 683 official at bats while hitting at a .316 clip. Adding 15 home runs, 9 stolen bases, 99 runs scored and 58 runs batted in, there is no doubt despite being 38 years old he is still a productive fantasy player.
It is hard to tell how his ankle will hold up to the grueling MLB schedule, but with a little restÂ each week, he should be able to withstand the summer months and beÂ contributor toÂ your fantasy lineups. Donâ€™t expect numb...

It was a cold, snowy Opening Day in the Bronx. The Yankees defeated the Kansas City Royals, 7-3. Starter Andy Pettitte allowed 3R in 6.1IP (6H, 2BB), earning the win. Newcomers Joe Girardi, replacing Mike Stanley, and Tino Martinez, replacing Don Mattingly, get booed during pregame introductions. Girardi goes 1-for-5 batting in the second spot and rookie shortstop Derek...

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...
When the Retrieval Empire last winter inked Sergeant Youkilis to a one-year deal, a few writers dusted off the old punch line about him being the "Greek God of Walks." OK, fine. Unfortunately, in their quest to re-enact a Greek tragedy, the Yankees embody no god. Nope. We follow the blind poet, Homer.Yesterday, before Cleveland called in sick, the Yankees were tied for...
Carlos Carrasco hasnâ€™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 â€¦ Continue reading â†’
