Every September, MLB rosters expand so minor-league players with potential can get a cup of coffee with the big-league team. No matter what the hype, avoid relying on these September call-ups to help your fantasy baseball team. Stick to the veteran players you know well and let the other owners in your league gamble on the rookies. You won’t regret it when the season ends with your team in first place. The other owners will be shaking their heads with regret for letting hype rule their decision-making processes.
Mark Teixeira was back in the New York Yankees’ lineup Tuesday night after missing seven games with a bruised right shin.
Girardi should make that decision now. It’s what is best for both the Yanks and Sabathia.
Yankees left-hander CC Sabathia exited in the third inning Sunday with right knee pain and was placed on the disabled list on Monday.
Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia says he “flipped out” and made a “bad decision” for getting involved in a shouting match outside a Toronto nightclub over the weekend.
CC Sabathia didn’t pitch this weekend in Toronto, but he still managed to see some action.
Jacoby Ellsbury hit a tiebreaking homer to snap out of a slump and CC Sabathia pitched six gritty innings after leaving his previous outing with dehydration, leading the New York Yankees to a 2-1 victory.
A Yankees spokesman that Sabathia showed no symptoms of dehydration during the game, but was sent to the Medical Center of Arlington after cramping while icing in the trainer’s room.
From his glove to his bat to his feet, the Yankees were powerless to stop Trout, the Derek Jeter fan from New Jersey currently manning center field for the Angels.
If nothing else, he’s a different face. After what the familiar faces have done lately, Nova really couldn’t do any worse.
CC Sabathia pitched six sharp innings before being ejected for arguing balls and strikes and Brett Gardner hit a tiebreaking, three-run homer Sunday.
CC Sabathia allowed two homers to squander a 3-0 lead and the Yankees had their three-game winning streak snapped by the A’s in the opener of a seven-game West Coast trip.
According to some interesting nuggets provided by the research team at MLB Network, Sabathia’s problems have not been completely about his pitching and the Yankees’ hitting.
Chase Headley and Alex Rodriguez homered, CC Sabathia found his form in his eighth start of the season, and the New York Yankees beat the Kansas City Royals 5-1 on Saturday night.
Pineda and Sabathia have to keep on climbing so the Yanks can keep on climbing. So far, so good. But they should know one thing. The trail won’t flatten out any time soon. It only becomes steeper.
