The Yankees are soon going to have a logjam of starting pitchers. Exactly when that’s going to be the case isn’t set in stone.
Left-hander Chris Capuano will be the odd-man out of the Yankees’ rotation when Masahiro Tanaka returns on Wednesday.
Brian McCann hit a tiebreaking home run and Adam Warren pitched effectively into the sixth inning as the New York Yankees ended the Tampa Bay Rays’ five-game winning streak, 4-1 on Monday night.
In need of another healthy infielder by opening day, the Yankees have acquired Gregorio Petit from Houston for cash.
The decision to go with the 26-year-old international sensation means CC Sabathia’s streak of opening day starts with the Yankees will end at six.
Adam Warren isn’t assuming he will earn a spot in the New York Yankees’ pitching rotation.
“He’s done well,” Brian Cashman said of Alex Rodriguez. “He’s got a lot of life in his body. If he continues to show athleticism, that means he’s going to impact the baseball. That will be good for us.”
If you interpret the words of general manager Brian Cashman, the fifth spot in the Yankees’ rotation looks like it is Adam Warren’s to lose.
Alex Rodriguez hit his second spring training home run and Adam Warren allowed one run over five innings, leading the New York Yankees over the Detroit Tigers 11-2 Friday.
Capuano, 36, was hurt in the first inning Wednesday while covering first base on Brock Holt’s one-out grounder to first baseman Garrett Jones. The left-hander was scheduled for an MRI.
Aaron Judge, a 2013 first-round draft pick, hit a tying, three-run homer on a 3-2 pitch with two outs in a four-run ninth off reliever Mario Hollands as the Yankees rallied for a 5-5 tie with the Phillies on Tuesday.
When healthy, the Yankees’ top three of Tanaka, Pineda and Sabathia could be as good as any in baseball. The problem: they have to prove they’re no longer damaged goods.
Jimmy Paredes hit a two-run double with two outs in the 11th inning to rally the Baltimore Orioles past the New York Yankees 2-1 Friday in the opener of a day-night doubleheader.
Mark Teixeira and Chase Headley hit solo home runs off Koji Uehara in the ninth inning, and the New York Yankees stunned the Boston Red Sox 5-4 Thursday night to bolster their slim playoff hopes.
While the Yankees have yet to make anything official concerning the back end of their rotation, it’s looking more and more like Michael Pineda has pitched his way into the fifth spot.
