Hiroki Kuroda pitched two-hit ball for eight dominant innings and the New York Yankees again beat Mark Buehrle and the Toronto Blue Jays, 5-0 on Friday night.
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.
When Grandy does return to the Bronx and is ready to go, where will he be playing? It’s anybody’s guess at this point. Even manager Joe Girardi isn’t sure where he’ll put the three-time All-Star.
J.P. Arencibia hit a two-run homer, Melky Cabrera had three hits and the Blue Jays rallied for an 8-4 win over the Yankees.
Travis Hafner had a pinch-hit homer in the eighth inning to make a winner of CC Sabathia, who settled down after a shaky start and helped the New York Yankees beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 4-3 Wednesday night.
Robinson Cano hit one of New York’s five homers and drove in five runs, Andy Pettitte pitched seven solid innings and the Yankees romped to a 14-1 win Tuesday night over the Cleveland Indians.
Following two straight duds to start the season, the banged-up New York Yankees finally looked like themselves Thursday night.
They are still the Yankees, so expectations are high. But those expectations will quickly dissolve into disaster. Baseball in the Bronx will be memorable this year, but for all the wrong reasons.
It’s a question that seemed unthinkable during the winter months and at the start of spring training: which team will have more talent on April 1?
As of now, newly-signed Brennan Boesch is slated to be the starting left fielder. But if and when Wells becomes a member of the Bronx Bombers, he’ll immediately take over as the everyday left fielder, according to a report.
The Yankees are on the verge of acquiring outfielder Vernon Wells from the Los Angeles Angels.
David Phelps improved his chances of making the Yankees rotation by giving the Bombers another superb outing in their win over Jays on Sunday.
The shortstop went to Charlotte, N.C., on Thursday for a scheduled visit to see Dr. Robert Anderson, the surgeon who operated on his ankle last October. “He said everything’s healed,” Jeter said. “100 percent healed.”
New York beat the Boston Red Sox 5-2 Sunday in a game likely to be very different from the teams’ opening-day.
Jeter discussed how he’s feeling coming off surgery, CC talked about how he’s preparing for Opening Day and Pettitte compared his ability as a pitcher now to when he was younger. Mark Teixeira and Brian Cashman also stopped by to chat.
