While Derek Jeter was able to suit up at shortstop again
last night, the New York Yankees are reportedly also close to getting two other
players back from injury; first baseman Mark Teixeira and right-hander David
Jeter played short for only the fourth time in 12 games
since aggravating the bone bruise on his ankle.
While the injury hasn’t noticeably...
The New York Yankees are believed to have had no extension talks with Nick Swisher yet. Word going around is that Swisher, the Yankees’ eternally upbeat right field power supply, may seek a monster contract when he hits free agency at the end of the year.
To baseball fans, that is well-known to mean about $126 million over seven years. In other words, it’s a lot more money than...
THE EVIL EMPIRE
The New York Yankees rookies prepared for the final road trip of the season by dressing up as some of the best-known characters from the "Star Wars" films after Sunday's 5-4 loss to the Oakland A's. This year's hazing of first year players may be a tongue-in-cheek attempt at humor because the team is universally known as "The Evil Empire." Last year...
Murderer's Row. Mantle and Maris. Reggie and Catfish. Donny Baseball.And now... the Restroom Rompers.Seven and oh, baby. Seven and... ohhhhhhhhh.Yesterday, somehow - don't ask me how - the Yankees survived Freddy Garcia, Ivan Nova and Misstep Melky Mesa, keeping alive the Streak o' the Sugar Stall and keeping their own heads above the rim. Jiggle the handle, everybody...

Right-hander Esmerling Vasquez (6-4, 6.75 ERA) is on the mound for Minnesota.

NY Yankees at Cleveland 7:05 PM Sabathia vs Kluber
The White Sox swept the Yankees and left them grasping for air earlier in the week. Well today, the Yankees get C.C. Sabathia back and will receive a helping hand from Corey Kluber. If the Yankees are going to get back on track today is going...
Brett Gardner has only played nine games this season. His injury was a big reason why the New York Yankees went out and acquired Ichiro Suzuki from the Seattle Mariners. The team thought that Gardner would be out for the entire season with his elbow issues, but New York activated him today. According to Jack Moore of CBS Sports, Brett Gardner will be available in tonight's...
NEW YORK -- The ball soared off Alex Rodriguez's bat in the bottom of the ninth, flying deeper and deeper to right field, threatening to tie the game for the New York Yankees. As the Oakland A's tracked the ball's flight, the memories of the past two games could easily have flown through their heads. Two nights before, Russell Martin sent the Yankees home with a game...
I had just one small request yesterday for the Toronto Blue Jays: That they take one game in their doubleheader against the Orioles. Request granted. Had they not done that, and had the Yankees lost last night, the Orioles would be in sole possession of first place this morning. But the Yankees lead by 1.5 games, so all is well in Yankees Universe right now.Right now. Things could...
One minute, the New York Yankees were winning and looking to extend their American League East lead. The next minute, the lead and game were lost, thanks to Joe Girardi’s binder. The Yankees lost the second game of a three game set against the Minnesota Twins by a score of 5-4. Phil Hughes (16+13) took the loss for the Yankees while Twins reliever Casey Fien, in relief of...
NEW YORK -- After watching the New York Yankees' four-run rally in the 13th inning lead to an epic loss in the 14th on Saturday, the Oakland A's struck back after New York's latest comeback Sunday. No. 9 hitter Cliff Pennington had three hits, including a home run and three RBIs, and he drove in the eventual game-winning run as the A's eked out a 5-4 win at Yankee...
The numbers backed up Joe Girardi's decision to bring in Boone Logan to face Denard Span with the bases loaded and two out in the seventh inning Tuesday night. Logan's performance, however, opened up the New York Yankees manager to plenty of second-guessing. Logan entered the game with the Yankees leading the Twins by two runs after Phil Hughes had held Minnesota to one...
The New York Yankees (89-64) beat the Minnesota Twins (64-90) 6-3, last night at Target Field from Minneapolis, MN.
W - Andy Pettitte (5-3), L - Liam Hendriks (1-8)
Andy Pettitte was great as he went six scoreless innings, allowed 7 hits and struck out 3 batters. He looks like he is ready to pitch in the playoffs.
Nick Swisher hit a two-run HR (23) in the start of...
MINNEAPOLIS - The nights are definitely getting cooler. But the race for the AL East title isn't cooling off at all. The New York Yankees remained 1 1/2 games up on Baltimore on Tuesday, failing to take advantage of an Orioles loss by falling 5-4 to the Minnesota Twins. The Twins, who are seemingly enjoying the spoiler role, rallied from a 3-1 hole with a big seventh inning...
