We’re about eight days away from finding out if the Yankees will call-up the big, talented prospect they gave up Jesus Montero for over a year ago. But after being roughed up today in his second rehab outing in Double-A Trenton, I have to ask, should the Yankees call him up next week or send him to Scranton (although I hear Scranton ain’t a bad place to live compared to the Bronx). Of course it was just one little bump in the road. Up until this point, he’s been pitching pretty well on his road to recovery. Facing off against top Mets prospect, Noah Snydergaard, in Binghamton, Pineda failed to stand to the challenge, giving up four runs on four hits, while walking four an striking out four, throwing 67 pitches in on three innings of work. Through the first couple months of the season, the Yankees have lived off of their pitching, but over the recent weeks, it’s been known to let them down at time (as if the offense hasn’t done the same). CC has been living an on-again, off-again ty...

Struggling with command, Michael Pineda may still become the Yankees’ hero in Gotham

Battling command issues over three innings on Sunday, New York Yankees flamethrower Michael Pineda surrendered four runs and four walks in a rehab appearance with Double-A Trenton. Throwing only 32 of 67 pitches for strikes, the 24-year-old Pineda clearly endured the most ineffective outing of his comeback. Nevertheless, consistently hitting 93 mph on the radar, the 6-foot-7, 260...

Pineda hits bump in the road

Michael Pineda had been moving along quite well over his first three rehab starts (not including a simulated game) compiling a 0.63 ERA and 11/4 K/BB ratio in 14 1/3 innings. However, he was roughed up in a start with Trenton against the Double- A Binghamton Mets this afternoon. Pineda lasted only three innings, giving up four runs on four hits while surrendering four walks. He...

Cano starting to come alive

When Robinson Cano is going well, he often looks like the best pure hitter in the game. His ability to spray line drives all over the field with ease and with such a pretty swing makes him one of the most enjoyable players to watch. We’re no stranger to his hot streaks; coming down the stretch last season, Cano was on another planet – going 27-for-60 (.491) with three homers...

A-Rod booed, goes hitless in season debut with Charleston RiverDogs

Embattled New York Yankees 3rd basemen Alex Rodriguez continues to hear it from fans, even in his rehab assignment with the Charleston RiverDogs. In his debut, Alex went hitless in his two at bats, but later said ”I’m just happy to be back playing… I feel like a kid again,” he said via Yahoo! Sports.  

Preview: Yankees @ Twins (7/2/13)

Game two at Target Field falls on Phil Hughes (3-7, 4.82 ERA) as he takes on Samuel Deduno (4-2, 3.32 ERA) in hopes of keeping the momentum going after last nights 10-4 blowout. Hughes’ last outing was encouraging, holding the Rangers to two runs and five hits in eight innings but he had zero run support, literally zero as the Yankees were shut out. It could be the start of a...

On Wednesday, July 3, the Yankees placed infielder Jayson Nix on the 15-day disabled list due to a strained right hamstring.

Rodriguez goes hitless again

Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez grounded out twice and turned a double play Wednesday night in the second game of his minor league rehab stint with Class-A Charleston. Rodriguez is recovering from left hip surgery in January. He spent time in the dugout signing items for his teammates after he came out, and then jogged out to the right-field stands to sign for fans. The three-time...

Twins look to push Yankees' losing streak to six

The New York Yankees are looking to put an ugly June behind them in which they finished tied for the third-worst record in baseball. Having Andy Pettitte on the mound to face the Minnesota Twins could help them avoid their first six-game losing streak in six seasons. Pettitte has won his last 10 overall decisions against the Twins and will start Monday night for the visiting Yankees...

A fake Alex Rodriguez Facebook page is calling for July 3 to be ‘National Pray for A-Rod Day’

Facebook can be entertaining, particularly when they’re either hacked or fake. In this particular occasion, there is a fake Facebook Alex Rodriguez page floating around looking to make July 3 “National Pray for A-Rod Day”. The fake Facebook page is calling for a day designated for everyone to send prayers up for A-Rod because his feelings are “hurt deeply” after being trashed...

Twins try to solve Yankees riddle once more

What had a chance to be a special night for the New York Yankees' C.C. Sabathia last week instead turned into a disappointing performance. A matchup against the Minnesota Twins could help lift his spirits. Sabathia again goes for career victory No. 200 as he seeks a ninth win in a row over the Twins on Wednesday night at Target Field. Sabathia (8-6, 4.15 ERA) carried a no...

Yankees' skid reaches 5 with 4-2 loss to Orioles

The New York Yankees don't intend to lament their misdeeds during a miserable June. No, they figure the only way to get out the funk they're in is to look ahead to July. Hiroki Kuroda gave up three home runs, and the Yankees couldn't muster a significant clutch hit in a 4-2 loss to the Baltimore Orioles on Sunday night. The defeat was New York's fifth straight and...

Biogenesis whistleblower wants $1 million for his proof

Major League Baseball wants to nail alleged performance-enhancing drug users to the wall, especially Alex Rodriguez and Ryan Braun, two who have already skated by. But they will need more proof than they currently have, and they will have to pony-up the money if they way. Porter Fischer wants to be paid for the documents he claims to be in possession of, that prove that the aforementioned...
