A day after his 39th birthday, Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter has taken another stride forward in his comeback from a broken left ankle by running outdoors for the first time in two months.
Yankees general manager Brian Cashman says he’s leaning toward putting Teixeira on the DL. Cashman spoke on a conference call on Monday, an off-day for New York before it hosts the Los Angeles Dodgers in a two-game series.
A league executive told CBS News that Anthony Bosch could implicate up to 25 players, including some stars not currently connected to the firestorm.
Mark Teixeira and Kevin Youkilis were hitless Wednesday in their first minor-league rehab game, working their way back from injuries for a return to the New York Yankees.
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.
Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira says he could be ready to take on-field batting practice for the first time on Friday since hurting his right wrist two months ago.
“I have a lot of unfinished business,” said Rodriguez, who struggled offensively late last season. “I’m really looking forward to getting back on the field close to 100 percent and being who I am.”
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.
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.
The Yankees will have to make due without starter Ivan Nova and catcher Francisco Cervelli who both land on the DL.
Yankees catcher Francisco Cervelli left Friday’s game against the Blue Jays with an apparent hand injury.
The Yankees outslugged the Jays on Thursday night as the Bombers won 5-3.
Blue Jays reliever Aaron Loup made a two-run throwing error in the 11th inning and the Yankees beat Toronto 5-3 on Saturday.
Cody Ross hit a go-ahead single in the 12th inning, Eric Chavez followed with a three-run double against his former team and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the New York Yankees 6-2 Thursday night.
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.
