MLB Injury News:
Brian Hoch of MLBlogs Network reports that New York Yankees captain Derek Jeter ran on a treadmill today for the first time since breaking his ankle last October.
"It felt great. I’m progressing, like I told you,” Jeter said. “I’m right where I need to be. I’ve gotten the OK to do everything.”
He also took about 75 to 80 ground balls at the Yankees’ Minor League complex in Tampa, Fla., with limited lateral movement.
Speaking to reporters as he drove out of the practice facility, Jeter added “I feel fine,” he said. “I was able to do everything else, I just had to
be careful with that (ankle). Now I’ve got the green light with that.” Jeter considers his clearance to run as the final hurdle in his rehabilitation.
The Yankees are still hopeful that the future Hall of Famer is on the field April 1 at Yankee Stadium for the opener versus rival Boston.

BEST OF MAXIM
Derek Jeter was drafted by the New York Yankees in 1992 out of high school. Where in his senior year he batted .508 for the season, he also had college recruiters and pro scouts watching him as a youngster. The University of Michigan offered him a scholarship to play baseball. Spending his summers in New Jersey with his grandparents is where he got a chance to go to Yankees games...
From Chad Jennings:Austin Romine is well aware that last season’s back injury cost him valuable playing time, and he knows the Yankees have said he’s likely to open this season back in the minors. Way he sees it, that means this spring is just like last spring.
“Every year I’m coming in, and I’m trying to be on the team,” he said. “I’m not changing my mindset....
The countdowns have finally ended. Today is the day! Yankees pitchers and catchers report to camp today. It's been a long off-season and the preseason looks like it's going to be a busy one.Toward the end of Spring Training we will start getting answers to many of the questions Yankees Universe has about its team. Here are 10 of those questions, in no particular order: 1...
In an effort to come into spring training in good shape, Yankees pitcher C.C. Sabathia claims that he once again attempted to do so by not eating Cap'n Crunch.
The Yankees played poorly in the postseason. The whole team, not just one individual. It is actually amazing that the team even beat the Orioles in the Division Series. But Alex Rodriguez became the face of the Yankees’ struggles. We all know the story; Raul Ibanez hit for Rodriguez and hit 2 home runs, one to tie, one to win. Then Eric Chavez played for Rodriguez in the last game...
New York Yankees' relief pitcher Joba Chamberlain suffered a freak injury at home during the 2011-2012 offseason that caused him to miss more than half of the 2012 season. Chamberlain returned late in the year to post a 1-0 record and a 4.35 ERA in 22 relief appearances. The Yankees used him sparingly as he pitched a total of only 22 innings combining the regular season and...
These days, everybody ranks prospects, without even taking stool samples. Well, here we go: the future of Yankee rock-n-roll.10. Mason Williams, OF. Ranked #1 on most lists, dropped to #2 on a few because he apparently thinks he craps lobster Newburg. He must read prospect rankings. Well, read this, Mace, you little piss grub: Ruben Rivera. As far as we're concerned, any punk...
To the surprise of very few, the New York Yankees head into spring training with the oldest average starting lineup in Major League Baseball. But I don't think anyone thought the gap between first and second place would have such a large discrepancy.
According to Elias Sports Bureau, the average age of the Yankees starting lineup they expect to field on Opening Day is 32...
FISTS OF FURY
Mike Piazza said in his new book that he took karate lessons to prepare for fighting Roger Clemens. Here are some other funny excerpts.
Friday is Asteroid Day in America. Top scientists say a bus-sized chunk of rock will miss the earth by about 15 minutes, closer than anything since we developed the abacus and started tracking them. It's a "city killer" (Abe Beam wasn't the only one.) If the chunk hits Atlanta, everybody's a Flame. If it hits Denver, everybody's a Nugget. If it hits Boston...
On the list of people who hold grudges against Roger Clemens, former Mets catcher Mike Piazza has some pretty legitimate reasons to be near the top.
After being struck in the head by the Yankees pitcher back in 2000, Piazza finally decided to prepare a way to get even with Clemens. In his autobiography, Long Shot, Piazza details how he began taking karate lessons and mapping out...
Over the winter, the Yankees bolted from MLB's megadeal with the legalized scalper website called StubHub, advancing some bizarre, twisted, Moonian logic that empty seats at Yankee games came about because secondary market sellers weren't gouging enough money for tickets. I personally think the Yankees' rationale stemmed from something Charo once said on the Merv Griffin...
