NEW YORK (WFAN/AP) – Yankees backup catcher Francisco Cervelli is out indefinitely with a concussion. Cervelli was examined Monday in New York by Dr. Kirk Roberts, a neurologist specializing in concussion syndromes. The catcher was […]
Dan Haren threw a complete game shutout on Saturday night as the Yankees’ bats went cold in a 6-0 defeat.
Steve Kallas offer thoughts on Jesus Montero, Mark Herzlich, Rex Ryan and more.
Mark Reynolds hit a tiebreaking single in the 11th inning after striking out four times and the Baltimore Orioles outlasted the New York Yankees 5-4 on Wednesday in another soggy game between two sleep-deprived teams.
Jesus Montero has ability and youth on his side to become a legitimate power threat for the Yankees. How good will he be? Two all-time New York catchers, Mike Piazza and Jorge Posada, could provide the measuring stick.
Jesus gathered a throng of new believers on Monday. Jesus Montero, that is — the Yankees’ 21-year-old catching prospect.
Jesus Montero had himself an afternoon in the Bronx, as the 21-year-old prospect got the start at DH on Monday and responded by hitting two home runs.
Jesus Montero broke a fifth-inning tie with his first major league home run, then hit a two-run drive in the seventh to help the New York Yankees outlast the Baltimore Orioles 11-10.
While I failed to harpoon the heart of every bromance with the captain last week, we agree on one thing: there will come a day when Derek Jeter is no longer the starting shortstop for the Yankees, and that day is about two years away.
Rockies pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez is interesting, but he’s not the perfect-fit, no-questions-asked upgrade Yankees fans have pined for since Cliff Lee escaped them last July and last December.
Even with his early season struggles, the Rockies aren’t about to deal away 19-game winner Ubaldo Jimenez for peanuts. “We would have to be absolutely overwhelmed. It would have to be a Herschel Walker deal,” Colorado GM Dan O’Dowd said this weekend.
Yankees catcher Russell Martin was back in the lineup on Sunday after missing four straight games from a stiff back. “Feeling good,” he said. Well, Martin must have felt something not-so-good on Monday.
It’s ridiculous that Francisco Cervelli is still on the $200 million Yankees. It’s even more ridiculous that he’s starting games for them.
Through the first three-plus weeks of the season, Martin has been better than Cashman made him out to be at that January breakfast.
Score a -2 for the Yankees’ youth movement. Prospects Jesus Montero and Austin Romine lost out in their attempts to serve as backup to catcher Russell Martin on Monday.
