Back in 2011, C.C. claimed that he lost 25 pounds after cutting out the popular breakfast cereal "Captain Crunch" from his diet.
The fine folks over at the New York Daily News covering Yankees spring training noted that C.C. had lost some weight and...

The New York Yankees and their fans are eager to see Michael Pineda pitch. The 24-year old was acquired prior to last season from the Seattle Mariners in a trade that sent Jesus Montero to Seattle. Pineda then promptly began having shoulder issues and was shut down for the entire 2012 season. He still won't be ready for the start of this season, but it looks like he could...

The New York Yankees currently have six starting pitcher
candidates for five rotation spots, but this hasn’t stopped them from keeping
tabs on free agent right-hander Chien-Ming Wang, according to George A. King III of The New York Post.
