MLB Injury News:
New York Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira recently appeared in his first game since March, going 1-for-2 during an extended spring training contest. While the veteran is feeling good about his recovery, general manager Brian Cashman told reporters -- including Ken Davidoff of The New York Post -- that Teixeira isn't out of the woods yet.
"Until (Teixeira) is actually rehabbing in
games...we'll hold our breath for a while, and then he'll go through spring
training. If that goes fine, then I'll believe at we're OK. But prior to that,
I'm not gonna count my chickens yet."
Teixeira has been sidelined due to a wrist injury he suffered early in spring training. He's worked his way back to the point that he's once again swinging in competitive situations, but Cashman won't feel more confident in Teixeira's recovery until the wrist holds up during a minor league rehab stint.
While Cashman notes that it's "worth something" for Teixeira to feel as good as he does at this point, he will continue holding his breath until the first baseman "goes through that rehab-game process."
Beyond Teixeira, the Yankees are waiting on several other players to return from injury. Veteran position players Derek Jeter and Alex Rodriguez remain sidelined, while Ivan Nova could rejoin the team in the near future. Right-hander Michael Pineda could begin his minor league rehab appearance early next month, and Eduardo Nunez is said to be roughly two weeks away from returning.

On Friday night, while Hiroki Kuroda was shutting down the Toronto Blue Jays, I had the opportunity to be the guest on Sportswire Entertainment's live broadcast. Vinnie Apicella, the show's host, started in with a couple routine questions-- "How did you get started?" "How about those Yankees?" Then he asked a question I had to think about, "Which...
Robinson Cano has propelled the vastly depleted New York Yankees to the American League East leader. His fast start will help him in his negotiations when he becomes the most coveted free agent next year, but Cano wants to display that he is a franchise player that can also be a huge contributor off the field. Nick D’Annibale is a 13-year-old fighting acute lymphoblastic leukemia...

After a thrilling victory last night, the Yankees look to push their win streak to four tonight in Baltimore. Phil Hughes takes the ball with hopes of getting back on the right track. His last start came against Seattle in New York, and was probably the worst of his career.

If there’s such a thing as a rebuilding season for a team with a payroll north of $225 million, then 2013 was supposed to be it for the New York Yankees. The team was actually frugal this offseason as boss Hal Steinbrenner is determined to get under the $189 million tax threshold that baseball has set for 2014. By getting under that number, the Yanks would save tens of millions...
As baseball squeezes the Yankees with their newest socialist taxes and caps, Brian Cashman works with more and more restrictions. Hampered by decisions from ownership (namely the infamous Alex Rodriguez contract) he has been tasked with cutting payroll to $189 by 2014, while meeting the always unrealistic expectations of the best fans in baseball, Cashman has excelled. Last year...

No make-up day has been announced as of yet, but with the Blue Jays returning to Yankee stadium August 20-22, a double header should not be too hard to schedule. With the Blue Jays’ catastrophic woes against the Yanks this season, we all...
For a lost generation of Yankee fans, 1983 was Season Two in the 14-Year Barf - the hellish stretch of Tartabulls and Barfields that came between Thurman/Reggie and Bernie/Jeet. It was Iron Man II... the second Bush term... the marriage between Renee Zellweger and Kenny Chesney... except it lasted 161 games, instead of two weeks. I know what you're thinking: Shirley, you jest...
