With Spring Training under way, I started looking at the stats of the players signed by the New York Yankees during the off-season more closely, and figured I would share them.
The table does include Andy Pettitte, Hiroki Kuroda, Ichiro Suzuki and Mariano Rivera, who technically are not new to the Bombers, but were free agents that got re-signed.
This is a great reference for fans to look at while watching Spring Training games, and get familiar with the new guys.
All stats came courtesy of baseball-reference.com. (more…)

Something about Joba Chamberlain made you root for him. Maybe it was his dad in the wheelchair. Maybe it was his Fred Flintstone body, or that unforgettable Cleveland juju moment - gnats buzzing his head while a trainer sprays crap that actually will only make it worse. Maybe it was his limitless potential. Remember him going pitch-for-pitch against Josh Beckett, back when we desperately...
The 2013 season is not off to a promising start for Phil Hughes. The big righty who is looking to have a breakout season in his contract-year is sidelined with a bulging disk in his upper back.
Shutdown for a week, Hughes has not gotten back into a throwing program like he thought he would. For now, he’s been limited to working out in a pool. YES Network’s Meredith Marokovits...
In early 1964, after he cracked up on the air during the Yankees' World Series debacle against Koufax and Drysdale, announcer Mel Allen - the Voice of the Yankees for more than 22 years - was abruptly shown the door. He had given the organization everything, and in return, the ownership spread rumors of booze, uppers and homosexuality, and threw him overboard like a rotting piece...
First Granderson, now Youkilis? Reports out of Yankee camp are that Youk is being scratched from their game today with a sore left oblique and will be reevaluated in a couple of days.
Kevin Youkilis said his injury felt like a cramp, not a strain. Wanted to play today but Yanks are being cautious.

Who knew that Johnny Damon was such a big fan of the Carly Ray Jepson summer hit, Call Me Maybe?
Well New York Yankees GM Brian Cashman certainly does now.
As yesterday the ex-Yankee told Michael Kay on his ESPN show that he would gladly accept league minimum money to fill in for Curtis Granderson until his broken right forearm heals.
Damon expressed confusion to Kay about why...
AND ANOTHER ONE
Tweet With the Harlem Shake being the new craze, New York Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia and some family and friends decided to get in on the fun, with Sabathia uneventfully riding a segway around: Oh. Hopefully this whole Harlem Shake comes to a screeching end soon. -ALR
Outfielder Curtis Granderson of the New York Yankees suffered a fracture in his right forearm after being plunked by J.A. Happ of the Toronto Blue Jays on Sunday. Granderson is expected to miss 10 weeks of action which would put his return around the third or fourth week of the season. For now I am deducting 95 at bats from his projection and then re-ranking him.
Adjusting the numbers...
New York Yankees right-hander Phil Hughes was diagnosed with a bulging disk in his back last week, an injury that manager Joe Girardi says
could cause the pitcher to begin the season on the disabled list, according to
Bryan Hoch of MLB.com.
Girardi said "it's possible" Phil Hughes won't be ready to start the season.

New York Yankees 1 — Baltimore Orioles 5
Brett Gardner found success in today’s 5-1 loss to the Baltimore Orioles.
The only (likely) guaranteed starter for the Yankees Opening Day that came with the team today is Brett Gardner and it showed in the offense. Brett Gardner went 3 for 3 with 2 infield hits including a bunt single and ill-advised slide into first base just a...
Curtis Granderson‘s arm injury has the Yankees in the market for a center fielder — a role Johnny Damon believes he’s still fit to fill.
Damon, who played four years in New York from 2006-09, told the New York Daily News that he would definitely be open to donning the pinstripes again, though he does not anticipate receiving a call from the team.
“I don’t expect to hear...
Here's another black eye for Alex Rodriguez (not that he needs another black mark on his ledger): in 2006, the A-Rod Family Foundation gave just 1% of donated funds to charities before they stopped submitting financial reports and were stripped of tax-exempt status. CBS New York has the details.
Rodriguez and rapper Jay-Z raised $403,862 in a 2006 celebrity poker tournament...
This is just the beginning T…
Count Michael Weiner among those skeptical of the New York Yankees' stated plan to reduce payroll next year.
Yankees managing general partner Hal Steinbrenner says the team wants to get under the $189 million luxury tax threshold in 2014. That means the player payroll would have to be about $178 million at most, using average annual values of contracts, since the total for the...
AL BEast Notebook – Feb 26
Johnny Damon was on The Michael Kay Show on ESPN New York on Monday, and immediately the conversation began with the Curtis Granderson injury and the new vacancy in the outfield.
First question from Michael Kay: “Do you have any interest in going to the Yankees?”
“You guys know that I would have tons of interest to go to New York… Hopefully...
