Indeed, Girardi seems the easy choice for Manager of the Year again, at least at the quarter-pole.
Injured New York Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira could soon start playing in minor league games while pitcher Andy Pettitte is also working his way back to the majors.
Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez started his third week of on-field work by adding defensive drills and hitting in a cage.
Yankees have acquired infielder Reid Brignac from the Colorado Rockies for cash, adding a left-handed bat to the group of backups filling in.
The club has “had several conversations with Roc Nation Sports about Robinson Cano’s future with the team,” Yankees managing general partner Hal Steinbrenner told reporters on Thursday, according to the New York Daily News.
Locally, the Yankees’ Alex Rodriguez (out until after the All-Star break) came in at No. 9 and the Mets’ Johan Santana (out for the season) came in at No. 13. Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter (out until after the All-Star break) is No. 19.
Granderson was activated on Tuesday by the Yankees, and in the lineup against Seattle batting fourth and playing left field. New York optioned left-hander Vidal Nuno to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira says he could be ready to take on-field batting practice for the first time on Friday since hurting his right wrist two months ago.
