You may not recognize the new team, but you’ll probably recognize the result: just short of 90 wins, just short of the playoffs, way short of expectations.

On Thursday, the Yankees placed Jayson Nix on the 15-day disabled list and called up right-handed reliever Preston Claiborne.
A-Rod’s reputation has been severely damaged since admitting to using PEDs in 2009.
The Yankees placed their captain on the 15-day DL on Friday. He strained his right quad in his first game back with New York last week after being out all season with a broken left ankle.
