Injured New York Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira could soon start playing in minor league games while pitcher Andy Pettitte is also working his way back to the majors.
The Yankees simply cannot afford to lose another front-line player from their already decimated roster, so a bit of good news came out of their loss to the Orioles on Wednesday night.
Chris Davis went 4 for 4, including his AL-leading 14th homer, and the Baltimore Orioles got a three-run shot from Matt Wieters in a 6-3 victory over the New York Yankees on Wednesday night.
Hiroki Kuroda pitched two-hit ball for eight dominant innings and the New York Yankees again beat Mark Buehrle and the Toronto Blue Jays, 5-0 on Friday night.
Jorge De La Rosa pitched six scoreless innings in a steady rain and Carlos Gonzales hit his seventh homer in the Colorado Rockies’ 2-0 win over the New York Yankees on Tuesday night.
Hiroki Kuroda settled in after a rocky start to pitch four-hit ball through seven innings, Travis Hafner had three RBI singles and the New York Yankees used small ball to beat the Houston Astros 7-4 on Tuesday night.
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.
Travis Hafner tipped his cap and soaked in the applause from Indians fans who spent 10 years pulling for him. The love ended after his first at-bat.
Eduardo Nunez, filling in for injured shortstop Derek Jeter, left the game in the fourth inning after being hit by a pitch as Ivan Nova and the Yankees fell to the Tigers in the opener of the three-game series.
Hiroki Kuroda raised his pitching hand to block Shane Victorino’s line drive. Four batters later, Kuroda was out of the game. Another injury for the Yankees. And another loss, too.
Back in the warmth of the clubhouse, Clay Buchholz took pride in how he chilled the Yankees’ bats. For the first time since 1999, the Boston Red Sox are 2-0. For the first time since 1935, they began the season with two wins at the Yankees.
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.
It’s a question that seemed unthinkable during the winter months and at the start of spring training: which team will have more talent on April 1?
