“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.”
Derek Jeter will only play minor league spring training games
“We’ve got to do what’s right for him,” Cashman said. “Whatever’s right for him will be right for us. I’m not saying he’s going to be DL’ed, but I can’t tell you he won’t be. I don’t think it’s anything serious. I just think it’s a timing issue.”
Relax, Yankees fans. The captain says he’s OK.
What is interesting is that many fans, and even many in the media, still minimize the impact of injuries, especially those not requiring surgery. Is it the money that players make that pushes people to feel that athletes should just play through pain?
While Jeter said that he was not “concerned” and didn’t see it as a “setback,” clearly there is at least reason for pause in the comeback story that has accounted for most of the ink this spring.
Derek Jeter said he was removed from Tuesday’s lineup for “precautionary” reasons because his surgically-repaired left ankle feels “stiff.”
Injured Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira plans to begin baseball drills in a week.
Brennan Boesch made his Yankees’ debut and went 0-or-3 Saturday as a New York split squad lost 7-0 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies.
Pettitte, who had been pitching in simulated games, allowed one run and four hits over three-plus innings. The left-hander had three strikeouts and three walks.
It’s quite likely that Derek Jeter won’t feel a Fall Classic under his feet again. And you need not be a Yankees fan to see how sad that is.
Jeter said on Tuesday after working out in Tampa, Fla., that he’ll “be out there” against the Phillies after two games as the designated hitter.
Derek Jeter and Mariano Rivera made their spring debuts, but that wasn’t enough for the Yankees who lost the Braves 2-1.
“It’s official now,” Rivera said at a press conference Saturday morning. “After this year I’ll be retired.”
Legendary Yankees closer Mariano Rivera is looking to wave goodbye to baseball with one more World Series ring on his finger.
