MLB Injury News:
Brian Cashman told Meredith Marakovits of YES that the plan is for left-handed starting pitcher Andy Pettitte to be activated from the disabled list to make his return sometime early next week during the team's series against the Cleveland Indians.
Cashman told me the plan is to have Pettitte return during the CLE series (as long as there are no setbacks) #yankees

Pettitte has been on the DL since the middle of the month due to a strained left trapezius muscle. Prior to hitting the shelf, the southpaw was scratched from his last scheduled start due to back spasms.
His recovery has been going well thus far, and assuming there are no setbacks Cashman plans on activating him early next week against the Indians. The Yankees face the Tribe in a three-game set starting on Monday night.
Prior to hitting the DL, Pettitte had maintained an ERA of 3.83 with a 1.297 WHIP over eight starts for the Yankees this season.

When the season began in April, the Yankees’ main focus was to stay afloat until the stars came back.
They’ve done more than just tread water.
On May 29th, they stand one game out of first place behind the Boston Red Sox, with two sluggers on the verge of...
Derek Jeter remains out for the Yankees because of his ankle injury, but it looks like he is slowly getting closer to being able to play.

As if Curtis Granderson needed anything more on his resume of being known as one of the “good guys” of baseball, he padded it anyway. Probably doesn’t even care if he gets publicity. The New York Yankees outfielder donated $5M to the University of Illinois – Chicago to upgrade their stadium...
New York Yankees starting corner infielders, Mark Teixeira and Kevin Youkilis are both due to come off the Disabled list on Friday for the series opener against the Red Sox.The timing is a best case scenario since both can bat right-handed and Boston will be throwing back-to-back lefties against New York Yankees suddenly anemic lineup.For New York, it will have to approach roster...
What does it mean when you wear Yankee pinstripes, and can’t beat the Mets?
It spells t-r-o-u-b-l-e my friend, and that is exactly what this makeshift Yankees team is in.
Here are the Yankees batting stats during this Mets series (stats courtesy of ESPN.com):
New York Yankees vs. New York Mets - 2013...
CC Sabathia's fastball returned to the New York Yankees along with Mark Teixeira and Kevin Youkilis.
Throwing at up to 94 mph after two months of decreased velocity, Sabathia matched his season high with 10 strikeouts while pitching into the eighth inning to lead New York over the Boston Red Sox 4-1 Friday night and stop the Yankees' season-high, five-game losing streak...
Daniel Murphy may have the best batting average on the New York Mets’ roster right now, but the Yankees have his kryptonite in their center field.
New York’s Brett Gardner has put together two highlight-reel catches in his last two games. Both were against the Mets, both were in the sixth inning, and both robbed Murphy of hits that would have gone for extra bases. (Then again...
Do you know how awesome Mariano Rivera is? He’s so great that one of his worst outings ever is an opportunity to praise him. On Tuesday night at Citi Field, Rivera blew a save without recording an out for the first time in his career. Rivera is 43 years old and has been pitching since [...]
You passed out in the wild party, after Overbay's HR beat Tampa. You wake up in an empty clubhouse, the lockers and showers horribly smeared with chalk and pine tar. Outside, on the field, a roving horde of Yankees seems to be feeding on something. You climb the dugout steps for a better look. My God, it's the carcass of Joe Girardi! One of them sees you. It's Vernon...
In the final season of his storied career, New York Yankees closer Mariano Rivera has pitched one of his best seasons to date. However, Tuesday night’s match-up against crosstown rival New York Mets would serve as the first major setback for the future hall of famer this season.With a 1-0 lead heading into the ninth inning, Rivera entered the game and surrendered a ground rule...
I’m not a fan of the increased inter-league play happening throughout the 2013 season. However, I’ve always enjoyed watching the New York Mets and New York Yankees face each other in the Subway Series. This match-up is one I look for each year when the schedule is released. Despite the Mets owning an all-time record of 38-54 against the Bronx Bombers, it’s still exciting to...

Game 56: Yankees take it, 4-1
Well, it wasn't a game of many highlights, but singles and walks gave the Yankees a 4-1 victory. In a rematch from Opening Day, C.C. Sabathia beat Jon Lester by simply pitching better, and it was simple; Lester missed his spots and C.C. didn't. Sabathia went over seven innings and struck out ten. Hopefully...
The Red Sox and Yankees are both dealing with injury-related storylines as they meet in the Bronx this weekend, but New York is probably a little more optimistic about its situation than Boston will be.
With Jacoby Ellsbury scratched for the Sox on the same night that Kevin Youkilis and Mark Teixeira return for the Bronx Bombers, it’s hard not to think the Yankees might be better...
In what is one of the best rivalries in sports, the Boston Red Sox face off against the New York Yankees in a battle for first place in the AL East. The teams kick off a three-game series tonight in the Bronx. What follows is a position-by-position "tale of the tape". Which team do you think has the edge at each spot?

The Mets clinched the 2013 Subway Series with a 9-4 thumping of the Yankees. Starter David Phelps only managed one more out than Mariano Rivera had in Tuesday night's loss. It was only the third time since May 3 the Mets had scored as many as five runs in a game. Jeremy Hefner was 0-5 going into the game, including two losses to the lowly Marlins. The Mets were 0-10 in games...
