The New York Yankees designated infielder Ramiro Pena for assignment the team announced. This move creates room for the recently acquired Casey McGehee.
Pena, 27, hit .250/.250/.250 with a 34 OPS+ in four plate appearances for the Yankees this season. In Triple-A, Pena hit .249/.302/.316 with 1 HR and a .618 OPS in 314 plate appearances in 2012.

The New York Yankees’ Facebook page was hacked on Thursday afternoon and the hacker left a rather hilarious message. As seen above, the message told fans that Derek Jeter would miss the rest of the season to have a sex change operation and that he would be back next season as Minnie Mantlez.
As website owners we obviously frown upon hacking, but if you’re going to break into...
Several teams around baseball attempted to pry away bullpen help from opposing teams at the July 31 trade deadline. The Yankees added a star caliber reliever without having to part with any cash or any prospects. Joba Chamberlain made his first appearance Wednesday in nearly 14 months when he returned from Tommy John surgery (June 2011) and an ugly ankle injury sustained in spring...
Ichiro Suzuki is earning his stripes for the Yankees with excellent plays in the field, including this jumping catch at the wall to rob Baltimore Orioles infielder Mark Reynolds of extra bases on Wednesday.
The play occurred with no outs in the top of the sixth inning at Yankee stadium. Reynolds, a well streaky power hitter with a boom or bust approach at the plate, hit a fastball...
One of the perks of being a professional athlete is the ability to endorse products and the swag that you can get from that.Recently, New York Yankees star Derek Jeter did some green-screen commercials for Tri-State Ford in New York City and below are the mistakes left on the cutting room floor.To give Jeter some credit, "Wanna see why the Ford Edge is the hottest" isn...
Joba Chamberlain— who expected to pitch his final rehab game in a Double-A Trenton game before returning to the Yankees— suddenly found himself being called up to the New York bullpen instead on Tuesday.

A fan in the front row of the first base stands at Yankee Stadium took a tumble over the railing while trying to grab a foul ball hit by New York Yankees center fielder Curtis Granderson during Friday night's game against the Seattle Mariners.
It happened in the bottom of the first inning as Granderson led off for the Yankees and hit a foul grounder down the first base side...
Does this guy know how to pick them or what?
What started out as supposedly an isolated hacking of the New York Yankees Facebook page quickly turned into a not so isolated hacking of multiple MLB team’s Facebook pages.
What you see above is what was done on the Yankees page and what you’re about to see is what was done to the pages of the Cubs, Marlins, Nationals, Padres, and White Sox.
Save for a frantic call to the Coast Guard, the Yankee ship would have sunk.We let the big, expensive one find its way to the bottom of the sea but, thanks to a good hearted and forward thinking owner, we salvaged a floater.It may take a while to reach shore now, but with light winds and a favorable sea, we can make progress and stay afloat.As you can see, the margin for error remains...

Is NY ready for the red-hot Mariners? The ole veteran Kevin Millwood is coming off his first victory in over two months, a triumph over Kansas City on Saturday.
Seattle Mariners vs New York Yankees
Friday August 3
Yankee Stadium – Bronx, New York
Moneyline: New York -250, Seattle +230
PITCHING MATCHUP: Mariners RH Kevin Millwood...
In the first inning of Friday's Yankees-Mariners game, Curtis Granderson pulled a 1-0 pitch from Kevin Millwood foul to the right side of the field. A fan tried to field it. But instead of fielding it, he fell on the field, and he took some of the stands with him.
In slow motion, from another angle.
He and his friends were amused.
Curtis Granderson was also amused....
