The third baseman was acquired from the San Diego Padres last Tuesday and within hours of arriving to the Big Apple, he was in the ballgame.

Yankee Stadium Is Not Ready For MLS Soccer

If there are two lessons that Manchester City and the New York Yankees can take out of the game between Liverpool and Manchester City at Yankee Stadium Wednesday night, it is that there were a whole lot more Liverpool fans in New York, and that there is a lot of work yet to be done before the stadium can really be soccer-ready. The two teams were playing at the new home of the MLS...

Trade Deadline: Yankees Last Minute Rundown

Credit: Getty Images It’s Thursday morning and we are just mere hours away from the 4pm trade deadline. This year the Yankees have been connected to some of the usual big names, along with some very under the radar guys.

Yankees' Gardner Playing This Week The Way Ellsbury was Expected To

After last night's 3-2 loss to the Rangers, the Yankees are now worse off in the AL East standings (5.5 G B) than they were coming out of the All Star Break.  All the optimism and confidence the team gave to fans after the sweep of the Cincinnati Reds has gone down the drain.  The main culprit for those lost feelings is, of course, the offense.Aside from a 12-run outburst...

According to Baseball Insider Jon Heyman, he is hearing that the New York Yankees have talked to the Philadelphia Phillies about outfielder Marlon Byrd but there is nothing imminent at the moment.

Preparing for Michael Pineda’s Return

Tom Szczerbowski/Getty Images) This year’s Yankees team seems to have the opposite problem than that of last year—instead of all the position players being injured, it’s been the pitchers who have spent the most time on the disabled list. It’s produced a similar result: through this point last season, the Yankees were 4 games over .500 and had been outscored by nine runs...

10 Trades That Should Happen at the MLB Trade Deadline

1. Derek Jeter to the A’s The Yankees are a festering pile of mediocrity with a very slim shot to make the playoffs. The A’s have the best record in baseball. Jeter should end his great career in the postseason, not toiling hopelessly in the Bronx. Also, Oakland’s shortstop Jed Lowrie kind of sucks and 2014 Jeter wouldn’t provide much of a drop-off. This deal needs to happen...
