The Yankees made their moves to protect young players from the Rule 5 draft, and they included their high-upside, injury-marred second baseman.

It was 3:49 a.m. and unlike other long nights when the Yankees’ general manager might be working on a trade or talking with an agent, this time Cashman was just trying to...
The Yankees added five players to their 40-man roster prior to Friday's deadline, thereby protecting them from next month's Rule 5 Draft.
New Jersey Senator Joe Vitale and Yankees GM Brian Cashman were just two supporters who slept outside of Covenant House on Wednesday night on 41st Street in Manhattan for charity.
