MLB Injury News:
It is still possible that Derek Jeter could avoid the disabled list. There's no reason for the New York Yankees to rush and place him on the DL with the All-Star break upon us. He will get some time off, and New York will be able to evaluate his quadriceps. If the strain is bad enough and Jeter can't play, he will go on the DL, but manager Joe Girardi and GM Brian Cashman have not made that decision yet.
Bryan Hoch of MLB.com says Jeter will be reevaluated later this week, probably Thursday or Friday. From there, the team should have a better idea of whether he can play or not. Of course, Jeter will want to play, but the team has to think about the long-term. If sending Jeter back out on the field at less than 100 percent risks his future, there's no sense in doing so.
Jeter came back from the disabled list and played just one game before potentially having to be placed back on it. He went 1 for 4 in his 2013 debut, but Jeter suffered a Grade I quadriceps strain while running to first base. He was lifted toward the end of the game, and has not played since.
The Yankees need Jeter's presence in the lineup, but his road to recovery has been long and trying. They don't want to force something that causes him to miss the rest of the season because of an aggravated injury. Jeter fractured his ankle originally in the 2012 ALCS. He came back for spring training only to suffer another smaller break.

Let me get right to the point. A-Rod Scores! (Photo credit: searching4jphotography) Is anyone else so sick of ESPN’s reporting on the MLB’s Biogenesis investigation?

Biggest Surprise of First Half:

Alex Rodriguez and Major League Baseball may reportedly be working on a deal that would result in a lengthy suspension for the slugger.
Despite not showing up to team facilities on Friday and reportedly declining the New York Yankees' request that he play at Triple-A to avoid the rainout that ultimately came on Friday at the Single-A level, Alex Rodriguez will be moved to Double-A today to continue his rehab assignment. The move is one the Yankees essentially had no choice but to make.
According to Bryan...
While a recent report suggested that MLB could attempt to suspend Alex Rodriguez for life, it appears that another angle may be taken by Bud Selig and major league baseball.
According to a report from the New York Daily News, Alex Rodriguez could face a 150-game suspension from MLB due to his connection with the Biogenesis clinic.
This is the second time a report suggested...
Like most players, Brett Gardner was not 100 percent coming into Sunday's first half finale. As teams head into the All-Star break, rest is what will be on the minds of many players. Yesterday, Yankees manager Joe Girardi decided to give Gardner a little head start.

Well, at least he’s not mailing it in with the big league club.
A scout who traveled over to Reading, Pa., on Monday night to see how Alex Rodriguez‘s rehab is going was none too impressed, Danny Knobler of CBSSports.com reports. While Rodriguez’s night, in which he went 2-for-4 and hit a home run for Double-A Trenton, had some people thinking things were finally clicking for...
Curtis Granderson has played just eight games this season. His last came on May 24th in which he suffered a fractured pinky. It was the second fracture of the year for Granderson. He also fractured his forearm during spring training. So it's understandable if the Yankees are eager to get him back on the field. Fortunately, that may be happening sooner rather than later...
