"Remote Chance" Gardner Returns for Subway Series

According to Andrew Marchand, injured outfielder Brett Gardner took five at-bats in an extended spring training game today and Girardi sounded pleased with the results saying "all went well." Marchand went on to say that there is a "remote" possibility that Gardner could return during this weekend's Subway Series vs. the grossly overachieving Mets. Girardi...

Yankees' Rivera sets date for surgery

Yankees closer Mariano Rivera said the blood clot in his right calf has cleared up and he will have surgery on his injured knee on Tuesday. Baseball's career saves leader was at Yankee Stadium on Wednesday before New York's game against the Tampa Bay Rays, walking without a limp despite having a torn ACL and damaged meniscus.

Chamberlain nearing game action

Joba Chamberlain could soon pitch in a minor league game for the first time since injuring an ankle during spring training. The New York Yankees reliever said he is scheduled to throw in a simulated game on Friday.

Bottom of the Ninth: New York, New York

New York Yankees: On Friday, Jon Heyman reported that Rafael Soriano will remain the closer, even after David Robertson returns from his oblique injury in a week or two. I was a little harsh in my assessment of Soriano two weeks ago, as his May K/BB was a solid 3.67, vastly superior to his awful 1.17 ratio in April. Soriano is both throwing more strikes and getting more swinging...

Yankees 4, Rays 1

NEW YORK -- Inning by inning, New York Yankees starter Ivan Nova looked less like the pitcher who had been roughed up for most of the season and more like the 16-game winner he was last year. With each new scoreless inning, Nova also made Tampa Bay Rays starter Alex Cobb's own impressive outing look as though it would end in vain, which it did in the Yankees' 4-1 win Wednesday...

Not-So-Rapid Reaction: Yankees 7. Rays 0

It’s a baseball axiom that “real” pitchers learn to adapt to their diminishing stuff and maintain their excellence through mastery of the craft’s fundamentals. Generally, such hurlers tend to see lower strikeout totals, but that goes along with improved control. Basically, they try to become Greg Maddux. Andy Pettitte has come out of retirement this season and turned into...

Rays 7, Yankees 3

NEW YORK -- David Price outpitched fellow ace CC Sabathia and the Tampa Bay Rays' shuffled lineup produced enough offense to top the New York Yankees, 7-3, Thursday night. The victory helped the Rays avoid a sweep and move back into a first-place tie with the Baltimore Orioles in the AL East, a half-game ahead of the Yankees. The loss snapped the Yankees' three-game winning...
