Sliding Into Home:
From Andrew Marchand:Derek Jeter is not even hitting right now. Jeter is not even fielding right now. Jeter is not even running right now.
Jeter is not even close to getting in a minor league game or a simulated game.
So even Jeter, for all his positive traits and accomplishments, wasn't going to be ready by Saturday when he is eligible to come off the disabled list.
"He won't be ready," Yankees GM Brian Cashman said.
Cashman doesn't want to create expectations if he doesn't have to, so Cashman won't put a timetable on Jeter's return. There is a good chance the Yankees really have no idea and aren't really hiding anything.
At this point, Jeter is only doing a throwing program and physical therapy.
When will he be ready? The Yankees don't really know. Jeter probably doesn't know, either. It was never going to be April 6. There was always a better chance it would be May 6.This sucks, but all it means is that Nunez is going to have to step up while Jeter recovers. Currently, there are too many easy out in this lineup and Nunez cannot be one of them.
BEST OF MAXIM
Although there is no official timetable for his return, those within the organization are targeting May 1 as a possible return date for Derek Jeter, according to a story written by CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman. Heyman reports that the date is “optimistic” barring any setbacks.
Jeter, who experienced “stiffness” in his surgically repaired left ankle on March 19, has since been...
OH CAPTAIN MY CAPTAIN
Yankees skipper Joe Girardi maintains his belief that once Derek Jeter returns to the lineup, the superstar "will be an everyday player again."
HIP TO IT
Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez told reporters that while he is still in "Stage 1" of his recovery from hip surgery, he is "devoting 100 percent" of his time to rehab.
After designating Clay Rapada for assignment to make room on the 40-man roster, the New York Yankees have now released the lefty. Capada is battling a shoulder injury but was thought to have a chance at remaining on the Yankees' roster. Unfortunately, that was not the case.
Andy McCullough of the New Jersey Star-Ledger says the Yankees granted Rapada his unconditional...
Andy Pettitte pitched the Yankees to their first win of the season and Mariano Rivera made a successful return to the mound in New York's 4-2 victory over the Boston Red Sox on Thursday night.
Brett Gardner and Francisco Cervelli homered for the Yankees, providing some unexpected power to a depleted lineup missing the ''sore four'' -- Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriguez...
Hiroki Kuroda just didn't look right after he was hit by that Shane Victorino single. Two hit-by-pitches and a trainer visit later, Kuroda exited the game with a bruised middle finger on his pitching hand. He is listed day-to-day. Adam Warren, who did the bulk of the pitching for the remainder of the game, may be rewarded for it with a trip to the minors. The Yankees have...
10. ... um ... well ... uhhhhhhhSorry, folks. I got nothing.
The big question, now that second baseman Robinson Cano has hired CAA and Jay-Z’s Roc Nation Sports as his new agents, is whether the switch means that the New York Yankees stand a better chance of signing him.
Brodie Van Wagenen, who will be Cano’s primary baseball agent for CAA, didn’t answer that question directly in an interview with FOXSports.com on Tuesday night...
Robinson Cano is switching agents from Scott Boras to a new company formed by musician Jay-Z's Roc Nation and CAA Sports.
Cano will be represented in baseball matters by CAA Sports' Brodie Van Wagenen. The New York Yankees second baseman is making $15 million this season and can become a free agent at the end of the World Series.
While the Yankees usually wait for contracts...

And the winner is Hov………again
Jay-Z has always said he isn’t a “businessman”, he’s a BUSINESS man. He is proven that by turning the skill of rapping, into a half a billion enterprise.
According to ESPN’s Darren Rovell, Jay-Z has partnered with CAA (Creative Artists Agency) one of the most powerful agency in the world, so don’t expect another Master P situation....
Ty Hensley, our first pick last June, needs hip surgery and will be out for three months.He's 19, and it's crazy to think he's done. But it's just as crazy to think this isn't a really bad sign. Good grief, how do we find these guys? Will a first round pick ever make it?Look at the list of the last 10 years.2003: Eric Duncan (washout)2004: Phil Hughes (success...
I am realist enough to know that the Mets are not going to win 162 games and the Yankees are not going to lose 162 games. But losing two in a row to your hated rivals can’t sit well this early with the Yankees who really need to get off to a good start injuries not withstanding. Could you imagine if George Steinbrenner was still alive now and this happened …a press relaease would...
On the brink of a sweep in the opening series against their worst rivals, the Yankees, behind a stellar Andy Pettitte eight-inning effort, crushed the Red Sox’s dreams of a 162-0 season. Here are the four bases from Thursday’s game:
First Base: There is a new phenomenon sweeping the Red Sox media! Shane Victorino‘s “relentlessness” might be the next catchy saying sweeping...
