From Andrew Marchand:The New York Yankees' top pitching prospect, Manny Banuelos, will not pitch again this year after throwing in six games all season, the team's vice president of baseball operations Mark Newman told ESPN New York on Monday.
"He's not going to be back this season," Newman said.
The left-handed Banuelos, rated the Yankees' No. 1 prospect by ESPN's Keith Law prior to the season, has been out of action since the middle of May with what Newman described as a bone bruise in his left elbow.
Yankees general manager Brian Cashman previously had stated that he thought Banuelos, 21, would return this season because of the progress the team's doctors had seen.
But Banuelos is being shut down for the rest of the season with the hope that he can play in Winter Ball and then be ready for spring training next year. Newman said doctors don't think that Banuelos will need surgery. The Yankees are unsure how the original injury occu...

Our not top play of the night award goes to Cody Eppley, a relief pitcher of the New York Yankees that was accidently hit in the head on a throw from third baseman Eric Chavez.
Eppley was staring at the mound when Chavez threw him a ball after tossing it around the infield. Perhaps the most entertaining part of the video is the YES network analysts laughing during the replay.

Whoever said that AJ Burnett couldn’t pitch should be putting their foot back in their mouth, as he could very well win the NL CY Young this season.
I have always been a Burnett fan since his days with the Florida Marlins; so I was thrilled when the Yankees signed him in 2009 and went on to win the World Series that season.
Burnett had his...
The New York Yankees aren't ruling out the possibility that injured outfielder Brett Gardner could make the roster for September in a limited capacity.
Manager Joe Girardi told MLB.com, "If there's a way that he can help us, we'll definitely use him, especially in the month of September, when you can expand rosters," Girardi said. "...
The Yankees looked pretty bad against the Tigers on Monday night, striking out 14 times and mustering no earned runs against Detroit's Justin Verlander. But don't give the reigning American League MVP and Cy Young winner all of the credit in this one. The Yankees may have been a little distracted coming in. Derek Jeter seemed reticent to head to batting practice Monday. His...

We’re a Midwest site, but occasionally we need to focus on stories with a more coastal theme. Here in Chicago, our media contingent lacks the obvious eye-candy tokenism you find so prominent on both coasts and in the national media.

Former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson returned to New York last night in the Broadway debut of his one-man show “Undisputed Truth”, running through August 12 at the Longacre Theater.
The 46-year old Tyson, originally from the rough streets of Brooklyn, opened the show with a welcome and a comical promise.
“Welcome to my living room. You will all leave with two ears.”
