From George A. King III:Joba Chamberlain is about to take the biggest step of his minor league rehab program and move closer to returning to the big leagues.
After throwing one inning for the Yankees’ team in the Gulf Coast League Tuesday, the plan calls for Chamberlain to pitch two frames for Single-A Tampa on Friday in Bradenton.
Chamberlain fanned two of the three Phillies’...

Brian Cashman's legacy trade victim was seen yesterday lounging on a steel re-enforced bench, after sprinting 11 feet." My arm feels great and I look forward to moving from tossing the beanbag to the baseball in a couple of months."Meanwhile, the certain Yankee "phenom-to-be" is concentrating on the physical aspects of the game.Glad he is one of us and not one of them.
Since 2009 Andruw Jones has hit 61 homeruns. Not very impressive. However, consider he is no longer a full-time player and that 30% of his hits have been of the round-trip variety, and suddenly that's not too shabby. Over the past 4 seasons, Jones has played for the Rangers, White Sox, and Yankees (all hitter's parks). He's collected 203 hits, while clubbing 61...
From Kevin Kernan:The easy route would be to do nothing and hope the old guys, Raul Ibanez and Andruw Jones, continue to produce loud hits for the Yankees.
The Yankees, though, need to make a deal for an outfielder. Send a limo down the New Jersey Turnpike to pick up speedy Shane Victorino from the Phillies.
Victorino would put the Yankees that much closer to victory. The Athletics...

ROCHESTER, NY - On June 28th, Scranton/Wilkes-Barre reliever Preston Claiborne became the second player from the New York Yankees 2010 Draft Class to pitch for the Triple-A baseball team. He joined fellow draftee and reliever Chase Whitley on the active roster.
OAKLAND -- Former A's outfielder and one-time fan favorite Nick Swisher might not be so beloved in Oakland anymore. After his ninth-inning home run Thursday cut the Athletics' lead to one and extended the New York Yankees' streak of games with three or more runs to 43 -- the second-longest stretch in the live-ball era -- the boos rained down from an announced crowd...
A.J. Griffin glanced into the visiting dugout and saw Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriguez and Mark Teixeira among others. Oakland's rookie right-hander felt some nerves all right.
Then, Yoenis Cespedes hit a two-run homer in the first inning to give him a quick lead and Griffin shut down one of baseball's best lineups for five innings as the Athletics beat the Yankees 4-3 Thursday...
A spectacular fire broke out near Yankee Stadium early Wednesday morning which left 30 firefighters hurt. The burning Bronx building's rooftop is close enough to the centerfield scoreboard that it wouldn't be hard to see Curtis Granderson run down fly balls during a Yankees game from that vantage point.
More than 200 firefighters battled the six-alarm blaze which caused...
Reggie Jackson rejoined the New York Yankees for Thursday's series opener against the Athletics in Oakland. Jackson is a special adviser with the Yankees, but he recently took a leave of absence from the team after being quoted in Sports Illustrated that several players, including Kirby Puckett, Gary Carter, Bert Blyleven, Jim Rice, Don Sutton and Phil Niekro, shouldn'...
