New York Yankees pitcher Ivan Nova is the real deal.

At least that is what everybody initially thought of him.
When Nova hit the major league level back in 2010, he showed some promise. Pitching just 42 innings in total, he went 1-2 with a 4.50 ERA. It was a small sample size where he was brought up at random to fill-in as a reliever, and a starter pending on who was injured.
The following season, Nova made the rotation the rotation out of Spring Training, and that was when he really impressed. (more…)

Left-handed reliever Clay Rapada has signed with the New York Yankees on a minor league contract.
Rapada, 32, has been in the major leagues for six years, his last year spent with the Yankees. In 2012, Clay Rapada had a 3-0 record with a 2.82 ERA. He struck out 38 in 38.1 innings. In 2012, Rapada held...
They're the little team that believed. The pluck-filled Yankees, enjoying their underfunded, underdog status, are feeling pretty prime these days. Pretty pretty pretty prime. A bunch of knowitalls said this team was dead. But look: Riding tall at .500, with a two-game, rain-helped sweep in Swishertown. Three in a row, baby. Three in a row. Meanwhile, we won't have to worry...
Yankees manager Joe Girardi criticized Major League Baseball for how it schedules series during the early part of the season when inclement weather is prevalent.
The New York Yankees offense could be getting a big boost soon. First baseman Mark Teixeira expects to be cleared as early as Friday to start swinging the bat as soon as Friday. The Yankees slugger has been out of the lineup after suffering a wrist injury in the World Baseball Classic last month. This news is the latest in a sting of good news for the Yankees offense the team received...
New York Yankees outfielder Curtis Granderson has taken the
next step in his recovery from a fractured forearm, as he resumed throwing
yesterday for the first time since sustaining his injury, according to Andy McCullough of The Star-Ledger.
Granderson told his followers on Twitter that the session
went “really well,” adding that it was “another good sign, and a...

The scheduled game between the New York Yankees and Cleveland Indians has been postponed by rain.
No makeup date was immediately announced. The teams are scheduled to finish their series with a single game Thursday night, but with a forecast for more showers it might be tough to get that one in. This is New York's only visit to Cleveland this season.
Zach McAllister is slated...
Early this week, with the Eve-Emps on the verge of elimination from the 2013 AL pennant race, we pondered orchestrating a worldwide juju relief mission of mercy - an intervention known by some as "charging the mound."Well, it worked. The Yankees are 3-1, baby, three-and-one, since we mentioned the - um - thing. We're not going to burst our britches on this, because...
Carlos Carrasco hasn’t pitched in a Major League game since 2011. After allowing a grand slam against the Royals, he threw at the head of Billy Bulter and was tossed and suspended for 5-games. However, he did not serve it … Continue reading →
Clearly, even Mother Nature had seen just about all she could stomach of the Yankees’ geriatric merry-go-round this week, washing out the last two nights of what was easily the most disappointing home opening series at Progressive Field since the time everybody just said “screw it” and played at Miller Park instead.
It’s now officially been a full five years since the Indians...
Tuesday's picks went well enough yesterday. The day was not as clean as Monday was, but it could have been if both Los Angeles teams had not had bullpen implosions. For the Angels, Kevin Jepsen pitched like Carly Rae Jepson. Another game was incorrectly picked because Nick Tepesch pitched a good game for the Rangers. Who knew? The Cardinals pick was finally correct. So that...
