MLB Injury News:
Despite the numerous injuries they've faced this season, the New York Yankees are still contenders in the American League East. In order to fill holes opened up by injuries to regular such as Mark Teixeira, Kevin Youkilis, Alex Rodriguez and Derek Jeter, the Yankees have been surveying the trade market. Rather than dip into their pool of prospects, New York could look to bolster its roster by dealing more established veterans such as Joba Chamberlain and Phil Hughes. In fact, one AL general manager told Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports that the Yankees are "aggressively pushing" Chamberlain and Hughes.
AL exec: “Yanks aggressively pushing Joba, Hughes. Joba could happen soon to NL team.” Source says #Yankees talking on both, nothing close.

The source also added that a trade sending Chamberlain to a National League club could "happen soon." While the Yankees have been discussing both players, the source said nothing is close.
Hughes and Chamberlain are both former top prospects that are pending free agents. They've been unable to live up to their potential, and New York doesn't appear to be interested in retaining either player beyond this season.
The Philadelphia Phillies are said to be interested in Chamberlain, as they could use help in their bullpen. IN exchange for Chamberlain, the Yankees could target veteran infielder Michael Young, though it's unclear if the Phillies are interested in selling major leaguers at this point.

A late call by the umpires of the Royals-Yankees game — to bring out the tarp before a summer rain poured down — turned a routine job of covering the infield into an epic battle between man and Mother Nature at Yankee Stadium Monday night. A deluge of rain delay interrupted the game in the fourth inning and the comical efforts by the grounds crew to roll out the polyethylene...

The New York Yankees grounds crew was caught unprepared during Monday night's game as they had trouble rolling out the tarp when a sudden rainstorm hit Yankee Stadium.
It happened in the fourth inning when a sudden downpour forced the umpires to call for a rain delay. The field was already fairly wet by the time the grounds crew...
Now batting, for the New York Yankees. Number two. Derek..Jeter. Number two.
The booming voice of Bob Sheppard will once again fill Yankee Stadium when he introduces Derek Jeter, a fitting honor for the longtime Yankee PA announcer, who passed away on this date three years ago.
Jeter returns to the lineup eight months and 28 days after breaking his ankle in Game One of the 2012 ALCS...
Have you ever made a mistake or a few?

Well, I certainly have done many things that I regret and my guess is you have too.
Now pretend that everyone, everywhere knew your mistakes and judged you on that merit only.
Personally, I can’t even begin to imagine what that would be like.
I am sure all of us have been on the...
Derek Jeter hasn’t played an inning of baseball all season and it’s safe to assume he’s a bit grumpy.
Nonetheless, Jeter being Jeter managed to put his pride aside and work hard rehabbing at the Yankees Triple A team in Scranton. As expected he’s been bombarded by fans day and night and well, this pretty much sums up at man who’s ready to get back in pinstripes

Last night, in the middle of another one-run debacle, the YES Team welcomed comedian Adam Sandler to its Booth of Death. And if viewers inched forward in their seats, expecting a funny song or patter of jokes, well, it was like listening to a retired librarian interview her former accountant for an NPR Storycorp. Sandler spoke in a hushed tone, so meekly you barely caught his words...
According to a report from TJ Quinn and Mike Fish at ESPN.com, Major League Baseball is making preparations to suspend Ryan Braun and Alex Rodriguez among 20 other players in wake of the Biogenesis scandal where it is believed that these players received performance-enhancing drugs. Per Quinn and Fish: Commissioner Bud Selig’s office is expected to suspend Braun and Rodriguez,...
Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter reportedly is expected to make a return to the team's lineup in some capacity Thursday night for a game against the Royals.
It was interesting this week to read Billy Madden's tribute to Tom Seaver, who is recovering from Lyme disease and will throw out the first pitch Tuesday at the All-Star game. The Daily News wasn't always so supportive of Tom Terrific. In fact, its lead baseball columnist from the 1970s, Dick Young - Madden's predecessor - ran Seaver out of New York, trashing his Met...
We may never know exactly what Alex Rodriguez and Ryan Braun are being accused of in Major League Baseball's Biogenesis investigation - if they beat the rap.
That's because details likely will be caught in a tangle of legal gymnastics involving MLB, the players' union and probably an arbitrator, who could rule no discipline is warranted.
Lengthy proceedings make it...
The long road has come to an end.
Derek Jeter, who has yet to play this season after undergoing surgery on his left ankle last October, will return to the Yankees’ lineup Thursday, according to FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal.
Jeter reportedly is expected to either play his usual shortstop position or serve as the designated hitter as New York hosts the Kansas City Royals. The 39-year...
