Teixeira, who has been out due to the calf injury since
Sept. 8, registered seven at-bats during the game and also played one inning at
first base. The 32-year-old was able to
lightly run the bases, and he is expected to play in another simulated game today
Teixeira initially sustained the injury
toward the end of
August, but he was able to rehab and rejoin New York on Sept. 8
. He then aggravated the injury during his first game back
and hasn’t played since.
While Thursday’s news is certainly considered progress, the
Yankees are still not putting a timeframe on when Teixeira will return to
BEST OF MAXIM
From Wallace Matthews:Last October, when the New York Yankees needed one more win to extend their season another round, they asked Ivan Nova to get it.
This October, they may not even invite him along for the ride.
Thursday night, facing yet another golden opportunity to create some separation between themselves and the Baltimore Orioles, the Yankees turned to Nova.
The Yankees will send Hiroki Kuroda to the mound tonight against the Blue Jays in game two of a four game set in Toronto. In his last start against the Athletics in the Bronx, Kuroda lasted 5.2 innings, giving up five runs on seven hits while walking three and striking out five in a losing effort. Coming into tonight, the Yanks are holding on to a one game lead atop the AL East...
Last night Ivan Nova pitched himself out of the postseason rotation. That is, if there IS a postseason rotation. The division lead is now down to just 1 game with 6 left to play.It was Nova's second bad start in a row after the good start he had when he returned from the disabled list. After the game Nova was asked what he thinks he needs to do to fix things. His response...
New York Yankees 11 — Toronto Blue Jays 4
After being shutout last night, the Yankees put up 11 in tonight’s 11-4 win over the Toronto Blue Jays.
Hiroki Kuroda danced in and out of danger in his 5.1 innings of work. Kuroda scattered 10 hits and gave up just 2 runs. Despite not having a 1-2-3 inning, Kuroda benefited from some help defensively. In the 1st inning, leadoff...
Hiroki Kuroda's struggles continued on Friday, though unlike teammate Ivan Nova the night before, the
veteran right hander was able to grind his way to a victory. Kuroda allowed two runs over 5 1/3 innings, allowing 10 hits and two walks while striking out four
batters. He gave up five hits -- including three doubles -- and issued a walk during the first two innings,
A few weeks ago there was plenty of worry and angst about CC Sabathia. The Yankees ace wasn't pitching like an ace and, if he didn't start to soon, bad things were going to happen to the team if and when it made the playoffs. Well, now Sabathia has had two straight ace-like starts, the latest coming yesterday against the Twins, and things are starting to look good again...
New York Yankees third baseman Eric Chavez had an embarrassing gaffe during Wednesday's game at Target Field against the Minnesota Twins when he forgot the number of outs during the fifth inning, blowing a double play opportunity as a result.
With one out in the bottom of the fifth inning, the Twins had runners on first and second. Twins batter Pedro Florimon grounded to...
OK, get out your slide-rules, because this is technical stuff, or as the Yankiverse likes to view it: thoughtful speculation.If the election were held today - that is, we face Baltimore next Thursday in a Division playoff - we could face Chris Tillman, coming off his legendary, one-hit masterpiece over Pawtucket. Hard to say, because Buck hasn't yet announced Sunday'...
TORONTO -- If the New York Yankees were feeling any pressure with a miniscule lead atop the AL East Division, they certainly weren't showing it. Yankees catcher Russell Martin led the way with his 20th homer of the season, a three-run shot in the sixth, and scored twice as New York (91-66) took care of the Toronto Blue Jays 11-4 before a crowd of 25,785 at Rogers Centre on...
Blue Jays 6, Yankees 0. Stands for Hometown lead. With AP Photos. Brandon Morrow used variety, not velocity, to beat the New York Yankees.
Morrow and two relievers combined on a five-hitter, pitching the Toronto Blue Jays to a 6-0 victory Thursday night that trimmed New York's lead in the tight AL East.
Morrow (9-7) scattered four hits over seven innings, walked three and struck...
The New York Yankees (90-65) beat the Minnesota Twins (65-91) 8-2, yesterday afternoon at Target Field from Minneapolis, MN.
W - CC Sabathia (14-6), L - Brian Duensing (4-11).
CC Sabathia pitched a dominated game and showed why he is the ace of this ballclub. He pitched 8 innings, allowed 6 hits, gave up 2 runs, walked 1 and struck out 10 batters.
Robinson Cano had...
Last year in the playoffs, Ivan Nova was asked to his job in game 5 of the ALDS against the Detroit Tigers and he couldn't get the job done in the biggest game of his major league career.
There is now way this guy should be in the starting rotation or on the postseason roster. Period. He has been that awful this season and he showed last night why he doesn't in playoff...
