BEST OF MAXIM
Game two at Target Field falls on Phil Hughes (3-7, 4.82 ERA) as he takes on Samuel Deduno (4-2, 3.32 ERA) in hopes of keeping the momentum going after last nights 10-4 blowout. Hughes’ last outing was encouraging, holding the Rangers to two runs and five hits in eight innings but he had zero run support, literally zero as the Yankees were shut out. It could be the start of a...
When Robinson Cano is going well, he often looks like the best pure hitter in the game. His ability to spray line drives all over the field with ease and with such a pretty swing makes him one of the most enjoyable players to watch. We’re no stranger to his hot streaks; coming down the stretch last season, Cano was on another planet – going 27-for-60 (.491) with three homers...
Embattled New York Yankees 3rd basemen Alex Rodriguez continues to hear it from fans, even in his rehab assignment with the Charleston RiverDogs.
In his debut, Alex went hitless in his two at bats, but later said ”I’m just happy to be back playing… I feel like a kid again,” he said via Yahoo! Sports.
Battling command issues over three innings on Sunday, New York Yankees flamethrower Michael Pineda surrendered four runs and four walks in a rehab appearance with Double-A Trenton. Throwing only 32 of 67 pitches for strikes, the 24-year-old Pineda clearly endured the most ineffective outing of his comeback. Nevertheless, consistently hitting 93 mph on the radar, the 6-foot-7, 260...
TAMPA, Fla. — New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez is set to play Tuesday night in his first minor league game on a rehabilitation assignment.
Rodriguez said he felt fine and was eager to get going.
“Awesome,” he said Monday at the Yankees’ spring training complex. “I’m really excited.”
Rodriguez said he didn’t have a timetable for rejoining the Yankees....
Alex Rodriguez, following a week of controversy and headlines, will finally begin his rehab assignment after being cleared by doctors authorized by the New York Yankees.
A-Rod will play in a minimum of three innings at third base on Tuesday for Single-A Charleston, according to beat writer Bryan Hoch. Rodriguez will work his way up to playing a full nine innings over the course of...
The revolving door to the New York Yankees' disabled list continues to turn. On Wednesday, July 3, the Yankees placed infielder Jayson Nix on the 15-day disabled list due to a strained right hamstring. NBC Sports.com's Aaron Gleeman reported the news late Friday afternoon, and Yankees beat writer Bryan Hoch confirmed it in a Wednesday afternoon tweet.
Jayson Nix to disabled...
Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez grounded out twice and turned a double play Wednesday night in the second game of his minor league rehab stint with Class-A Charleston.
Rodriguez is recovering from left hip surgery in January. He spent time in the dugout signing items for his teammates after he came out, and then jogged out to the right-field stands to sign for fans.
MINNEAPOLIS -- The seemingly depleted New York Yankees lineup is currently without Derek Jeter, Curtis Granderson, Mark Teixeira and Alex Rodriguez.
That hasn't mattered so far against the Twins, though. All the Yankees have needed has been Robinson Cano.
For the third straight night, Cano did his part to single-handedly top the Minnesota Twins. His two-run double in the sixth...
The New York Yankees are looking to put an ugly June behind them in which they finished tied for the third-worst record in baseball.
Having Andy Pettitte on the mound to face the Minnesota Twins could help them avoid their first six-game losing streak in six seasons.
Pettitte has won his last 10 overall decisions against the Twins and will start Monday night for the visiting Yankees...
Facebook can be entertaining, particularly when they’re either hacked or fake. In this particular occasion, there is a fake Facebook Alex Rodriguez page floating around looking to make July 3 “National Pray for A-Rod Day”. The fake Facebook page is calling for a day designated for everyone to send prayers up for A-Rod because his feelings are “hurt deeply” after being trashed...
Jay-Z has gone into the field of sports as an agent, and he sent a little jab at superagent Scott Boras over client Robinson Cano.
What had a chance to be a special night for the New York Yankees' C.C. Sabathia last week instead turned into a disappointing performance.
A matchup against the Minnesota Twins could help lift his spirits.
Sabathia again goes for career victory No. 200 as he seeks a ninth win in a row over the Twins on Wednesday night at Target Field.
Sabathia (8-6, 4.15 ERA) carried a no...
Major League Baseball wants to nail alleged performance-enhancing drug users to the wall, especially Alex Rodriguez and Ryan Braun, two who have already skated by. But they will need more proof than they currently have, and they will have to pony-up the money if they way. Porter Fischer wants to be paid for the documents he claims to be in possession of, that prove that the aforementioned...
CC Sabathia won his 200th career game to stretch his winning streak over Minnesota to nearly six years, and Robinson Cano hit a tying two-run double to spark the New York Yankees in a 3-2 victory over the Twins on Wednesday night.
Cano fueled the three-run sixth against Twins starter PJ Walters (2-5), who was pitching for his job. Trevor Plouffe homered against Sabathia (9-6), but...
