On one side of town, a first-place team with a manager being talked up as the best of the best. On the other, a fourth-place disaster with little hope of improvement and a skipper on the ropes.
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.
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.
The Yankees third baseman, recovering from hip surgery on Jan. 16, has been running at full speed and has been cleared to start workouts Monday at the team’s minor league complex in Tampa, Fla.
Joba Chamberlain is joining the New York Yankees’ crowded disabled list. The reliever has a strained right side and will be put on the DL retroactive to April 28, the Yankees said on Thursday.
Seeking depth for their injury-depleted infield, the New York Yankees acquired Chris Nelson from the Colorado Rockies for a player to be named or cash on Wednesday night.
Kevin Youkilis is happy that his back injury doesn’t appear serious, and thinks he could return to the Yankees’ lineup as soon as his stint on the 15-day disabled list is up. Manager Joe Girardi sounded more cautious.
Not wearing a boot and walking without a limp, Derek Jeter spent 45 minutes at the Yankees’ training complex Friday while he awaits more rehab for another ankle injury.
This is yet another important reason why symptoms should dictate rehab progression, and playing through pain isn’t productive.
Yankees captain Derek Jeter will be sidelined until after the All-Star break because of a new fracture in his injured left ankle. Brian Cashman said the injury to the shortstop “is obviously a setback.” Jeter could be out at least three months.
So watching the Yankees the last few days I was suddenly reminded of the movie “Major League.” That happens nearly every time I’m in Cleveland — I mean, why wouldn’t it? — but this time it happened for another reason.
Derek Jeter is taking part in long toss and undergoing therapy in Tampa, according to CBSSports.com/WFAN baseball insider Jon Heyman, so he doesn’t exactly appear to be on the fast track back to the Bronx.
Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano, slated for free agency after the 2013 season, is moving on from super-agent Scott Boras. He has signed on to be co-represented by Creative Artists Agency (CAA) and Jay-Z’s Roc Nation Sports.
Facing a Yankees lineup minus injured Derek Jeter for the first time since 2001 and just three starters from Opening Day a year ago, Jon Lester gave up five hits and two runs in five sharp innings against the defending AL East champions.
The Yankees finished their spring training schedule by visiting West Point and playing Army in an exhibition game.
