MLB Injury News:
The New York Yankees are dealing with multiple injuries as
the regular season approaches – including Curtis Granderson, Alex Rodriguez and
Mark Teixeira. You can add two more names to that list, as Clay Rapada and Phil
Hughes are likely to begin the year on the disabled list.
Yankees manager Joe Girardi told reporters – including Andy McCullough of The Star-Ledger – that his “guess” is that Rapada will begin the
year on the DL. The left-hander has been sidelined due to shoulder bursitis.
Due to Rapada’s injury, McCullough says the door is open for a player like Cody
Eppley or Shawn Kelley to grab a spot on New York’s roster.
Bryan Hoch of MLB.com says Hughes is also likely to be on
the DL come Opening Day. He’s pitching again – appearing in a minor league game
today – but he probably won’t be ready in time to start the year on the Yankees’
active roster. However, Hoch notes that Girardi won’t commit to that yet.

It doesn’t take much to impress the New York Yankees these days, as Chien-Ming Wang just proved inking a one-year minor league deal with the team.
It took Wang all of 12 scoreless innings in the WBC for the Yankees to abolish his past.
Wang has been injured and ineffective for years, as his last decent outing in the majors was...
Derek Jeter is no longer answering reporters’ intrusive questions regarding his foot. (Generally, those questions must go along these lines: “How are you?” “How do you feel?” “What’s up?”) He’s tired of telling reporters his foot doesn’t hurt. The somebiches don’t listen. The Yankees say Jeter might miss opening day, but he hasn’t ruled it out. The team expects...
I haven't squawked much lately because I don't really want to be a Swanny one-note, writing nothing but gloom and doom about the state of the Yankees. Especially when it comes to the madness of Brian Cashman. He is a terrible general manager, but our lousy front office seems to be fine with no matter what he does. And the media gives Cashman a pass, too -- more than they...
As Yankees ace C.C. Sabathia continues to work towards the overall goal of being on the hill on Monday, April 1, when the American League East rival Boston Red Sox make the trip down to the Bronx for Opening Day, the southpaw increases his workload, one outing at a time.
While his teammates took on the Red Sox at Steinbrenner Field on Wednesday, Sabathia, in an organizational...

A string of bad luck has struck the New York Yankees and now Derek Jeter may start 2013 on the disabled list.
Worried, upset, concerned, just a few words that describe Yankees fans to start the season.

The Yankees are bracing for the idea of Derek Jeter possibly starting the season on the disabled list after he experienced soreness in his surgically repaired ankle.
As reported by Newsday as of now Jeter is slated to return to the field Friday for workout, in order to gauge whether or not he’ll be ready to go for Opening Day. The always optimistic Jeter stated the following...

Is Cano or Cespedes going to have the better year?
Robinson Cano has been one of the best hitters in baseball over past several years. His three year averages: .311/.370/.539, 30 HR, 107 RBI, 104 runs, and 5 sB. The 30/100/100 mark is a milestone and when someone averages that over three years in an increasingly pitching dominated era, it’s incredible. He has finished 3rd...
Derek Jeter's ankle will keep him out of Major League exhibition games for the rest of spring training. He will play only in minor league games the rest of the way out. The move comes after Jeter felt soreness in his ankle and an inflammation was discovered.
Craig Calcaterra of NBC Sports says the move to have Jeter play in minor league games could be strategic. By...

Well, the Yankees...

Desperate times calls for desperate measures, and make no mistakes about it, this is a move of desperation by the New York Yankees.
Earlier, we reported that Yankees shortstop and captain Derek Jeter, will almost certainly miss the beginning of the season because he has yet to fully recover from a broken ankle he suffered in the postseason late last year.
