Phil Hughes put in his best outing of the season as the Yankees defeated the Mariners 6-2 on Saturday.
All eyes will be on Michael Pineda as he makes his Spring Training debut for the Yankees on Monday afternoon in Clearwater.
The Seattle Mariners and New York Yankees have finalized their four-player trade sending All-Star pitcher Michael Pineda to the Yankees in exchange for young slugging prospect Jesus Montero.
In a matter of hours on Friday night, the Yankees waived goodbye to prized prospect Jesus Montero and Hector Noesi and welcomed much-needed arms to their rotation. GM Brain Cashman stayed patient and appears to have won big.

Justin Verlander winning the MVP started plenty of arguments, but it also deprived us of another great winter debate—if Jacoby Ellsbury had won the award over Curtis Granderson.

Jorge Posada came off the bench and helped the Yankees to yet another AL East title with a go-ahead single in the eighth inning, and New York swept the Tampa Bay Rays by identical 4-2 scores in a doubleheader Wednesday.

“Daniel’s Music Foundation meets the the New York Yankees,” was the announcement made at the Brooks Atkinson Threatre on Monday.

David Ortiz wasn’t at all concerned about New York throwing at him in retaliation for Tuesday’s showy bat flip. “Why should I?” he said Wednesday. “I don’t care about what Joe Girardi said. I come to play the game every day. That’s about it. I’m done with that.”
Joba Chamberlain has been placed on the disabled list with a strained flexor muscle, Joe Girardi said on Wednesday.
The Yankees understand the occasional loss is merely a part of baseball. Just don’t show them up in Yankee Stadium.
