MLB Injury News:
York Yankees have announced that Derek Jeter is on a fast recovery from his
fractured ankle, even faster than many had expected. General manager Brian
Cashman stated that the future Hall-of-Fame shortstop may find himself in Spring
Training game action on or close to March 10.
Bryan Hoch reports that Jeter has only recently resumed baseball activities
after suffering his injury during the 2012 ALCS in October. Jeter began running
on the field on Saturday, February 23, but he feels that a March 10 return
to action is very possible. Said Jeter, "I was a couple of weeks behind what everyone else was doing when I
first got here, so on that schedule I don't see any reason why not. I don't
think anything's set in stone, but it seems like it's attainable."
Cashman stated that Jeter will likely begin play as the Yankees’
designated hitter. Even with fewer Spring Training at bats than normal, Jeter
can still possibly play on Opening Day. Jeter claims that fewer at bats will
not impact his ability to perform in the regular season. The 18-year veteran
knows how ready he is when the season begins.
Yankees will need Jeter to perform as he always has in light of the loss of the
powerful Curtis Granderson for the first month and a half of the regular
season. Granderson suffered a fractured right forearm in Sunday’s Spring
Training game with the Toronto Blue Jays. Having Jeter back in the lineup will
make up for much of that lost run production.

Something about Joba Chamberlain made you root for him. Maybe it was his dad in the wheelchair. Maybe it was his Fred Flintstone body, or that unforgettable Cleveland juju moment - gnats buzzing his head while a trainer sprays crap that actually will only make it worse. Maybe it was his limitless potential. Remember him going pitch-for-pitch against Josh Beckett, back when we desperately...
New York Yankees outfielder Curtis Granderson was hit by a pitch on his right forearm in his first at-bat during Sunday's spring training game against the Toronto Blue Jays.
X-rays revealed his forearm is broken and he will be out for 10 weeks, meaning Granderson all of spring training and the first month of the regular season.

In early 1964, after he cracked up on the air during the Yankees' World Series debacle against Koufax and Drysdale, announcer Mel Allen - the Voice of the Yankees for more than 22 years - was abruptly shown the door. He had given the organization everything, and in return, the ownership spread rumors of booze, uppers and homosexuality, and threw him overboard like a rotting piece...
First Granderson, now Youkilis? Reports out of Yankee camp are that Youk is being scratched from their game today with a sore left oblique and will be reevaluated in a couple of days.
Kevin Youkilis said his injury felt like a cramp, not a strain. Wanted to play today but Yanks are being cautious.

Well New York Yankees GM Brian Cashman certainly does now.
As yesterday the ex-Yankee told Michael Kay on his ESPN show that he would gladly accept league minimum money to fill in for Curtis Granderson until his broken right forearm heals.
Damon expressed confusion to Kay about why...

As soon as he went down, the New York Yankees were searching for another outfielder. Curtis Granderson was hit by a pitch yesterday and eventually diagnosed with a fractured forearm.

The New York Yankees start the 2013 spring training schedule with a couple questions they have not had over the past several seasons. Their outfield is not as deep and they have age to deal with in their starting rotation. The Yankees also have to deal with the fact they lost their starting catcher, Russell Martin, to the Pirates in a “bidding war.” Actually, I think my last...
Curtis Granderson‘s arm injury has the Yankees in the market for a center fielder — a role Johnny Damon believes he’s still fit to fill.
Damon, who played four years in New York from 2006-09, told the New York Daily News that he would definitely be open to donning the pinstripes again, though he does not anticipate receiving a call from the team.

AL BEast Notebook – Feb 26
Johnny Damon was on The Michael Kay Show on ESPN New York on Monday, and immediately the conversation began with the Curtis Granderson injury and the new vacancy in the outfield.
