The Yankees have announced that Jayson Nix has been activated from the DL and will rejoin the team in LA against the Dodgers. David Adams was sent down to make room on the roster.
Nix has been sidelined since July 3 with a strained right hamstring. On the season, he’s hitting .236 with two homers and 20 RBI and has seen a lot of action at short since Derek Jeter was on the DL. Nix will move to the bench and serve as a utility guy for Joe Girardi.
This will be Adams’ second time being sent down this season. He was hitting .205 with two homers and 11 RBI, playing mostly at third base.
Yankees optioned David Adams to AAA after the game. Will activate Jayson Nix before Tuesday’s game at LAD.

Major League Baseball is waiting on Alex Rodriguez and his lawyer to know if they will accept a deal that will suspend the Yankee star player for the rest of the 2013 season, and all of 2014, according to the New York Daily News. If Rodriguez and his representatives reject a deal, A-Rods suspension could be announced as early as late Monday or Tuesday. According to a [...]
There is no doubt that Brian Cashman has had his fill with Alex Rodriguez. The New York Yankes GM never wanted to sign him the enormous deal, and would love to see the Yanks move on completely from him. Unfortunately, that is not likely to happen, barring a lifetime ban from baseball due to A-Rod’s involvement in the Biogenesis scandal. Until that happens, which it may never come...
NEW YORK — Major League Baseball may try to suspend Alex Rodriguez under its collective bargaining agreement instead of its drug rules, which would eliminate any chance of delaying a penalty until after the case goes to an arbitrator, The Associated Press has learned.
Rodriguez has never been disciplined for a drug offense, and a first offender under baseball’s Joint Drug Agreement...
Whether you believe the conspiracy theories or not, Alex Rodriguez is still going through the normal rehab protocols a player with a quadriceps injury would. He is taking grounders at the team's spring training complex, and he is hitting in the batting cages. Soon, he could start playing games again.
Adam Berry of MLB.com says Rodriguez should be ready for a simulated...
A Yankees fan with a homemade sign welcoming back Alfonso Soriano —after a 10-year leave — had his big moment on the Jumbotron video-bombed by his annoying pal.
There was a nice welcome during the left fielder's intro before his first at-bat wearing pinstripes after his trade back to Yankee Stadium. Picked out of the crowd by the TV booth was the guy holding the simple...
Former New York Yankees owner Jacob Ruppert has been inducted posthumously into the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum.
The ceremony took place Sunday. Ruppert, who died in 1939, was elected by the 16-member Pre-Integration Era Committee. Anne Vernon, a great grandniece of Ruppert, accepted the award for the family.
Ruppert purchased the Yankees prior to the 1915 season...
According to a report by Brian Kotloff of Sports Illustrated via Joel Sherman of the New York Post, New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman, was told to go ahead with the trade for Chicago Cubs outfielder Alfonso Soriano, although he was against it.
Cashman would not directly confirm what he advised Hal Steinbrenner, but told The Post: “I would say we are in a desperate...
Alex Rodriguez is one of the most scorned athletes in the media today. There is a palpable amount of hatred towards A-Rod from the media, fans, and hell, even Yankees executives. And yet, the reasons for all of the disdain towards Rodriguez are petty at best. Yet, that doesn't stop media members from taking snipes at Rodriguez whenever his name pops up, despite the fact that...

Derek Jeter had no doubts he was ready to return and one pitch into his second comeback of the season he showed it.
The Yankees captain homered in his first at-bat Sunday staking New York to a 1-0 lead in the first inning as they try to avoid a sweep to the first-place Tampa Bay Rays.
Jeter who started at shortstop and was batting second Sunday stepped to the plate to the familiar...

Perhaps the only thing that both the PED haters and the fans of the individual players, affected teams or just those who want the world to move on from all of this can agree on is this... the waiting for MLB's inevitable strike against the Biogensis suspects is, well, ridiculous and off-putting. Some teams, like the Tigers with Jhonny Peralta, the A's with...
It looks like Major League Baseball is ready to drop the hammer on the rest of the players involved in the Biogenesis scandal sometime this week, according to a report by The New York Post.
MLB is also set to announce a lengthy suspension for Alex Rodriguez, according to The Post.
“It always has been MLB’s plan to announce the suspensions at one time for the 15-plus players believed...

Hideki Matsui did great things for the New York Yankees, so it’s only right that he retired as one. In 11 seasons with the Bronx Bombers, Matsui had a line of .282/.360/.462 with 175 home runs.
