Andy Pettitte expects big things from the Yankees in 2013.
Mark Teixeira hopes to get the protective brace on his injured right wrist removed on Monday. Speaking before New York’s exhibition game at the Washington Nationals on Friday, he said his goal is to rejoin the Yankees as soon as May 1.
Aside from a brilliant half-season during an 18-8 2010, Hughes has been a huge disappointment. Now, nearing 27, with the sheen of youth scrubbed off and the “upside” banner quite tattered, it’s time for Hughes to pitch up to snuff.
Lyle Overbay has emerged as the top contender to be the Yankees’ starting first baseman with Mark Teixeira beginning the season on the disabled list.
October baseball is almost a divine right in the view of the Yankees. But there are doubts this year. Lots of them.
The Yankees signed first baseman Lyle Overbay to a minor league contract on Tuesday. He was released hours earlier by the American League East-rival Red Sox.
Jeter is undergoing treatment for his sore left ankle, which is still recovering from surgery last October. His last game action came as a designated hitter on Saturday in a minor league exhibition.
“We are committed as a family to be in this long-term,” Steinbrenner said. “We enjoy this, this is why we’re all involved — all of my siblings. And we’re going to continue, every year, to field a championship-caliber team.”
Let’s remember how long a baseball season is. When 2012 began, the Marlins and the Angels were supposed to be in the playoffs and the A’s and the Orioles weren’t. We still haven’t played Game 1 of 162. Let’s try to enjoy the ride.
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.
Wells is on the verge of becoming the latest addition to the Yankees’ injury-depleted lineup.
You see, one has to be on the field in order to lead. Whether Jeter will admit it or not, he’s not going to be there. Not consistently enough to be a factor, anyway.
According to WFAN’s Sweeny Murti, Brian Cashman believes that Derek Jeter will begin the 2013 season on the DL.
“This is probably one of the proudest days of my career so far,” Wright said. “(I’m) honored and very proud to be on the short list of guys that have been captain of this franchise. For me it’s a dream come true, to say the least.”
