New York Yankees
Union head Tony Clark says the baseball players’ association has no issues with Alex Rodriguez.
Michael Pineda pitched three hitless innings and the New York Yankees beat the Detroit Tigers 4-1 Saturday in a split-squad game.
Alex Rodriguez drew a mix of cheers and boos in his first road game this spring, and a New York Yankees split squad lost to the Toronto Blue Jays 1-0 Saturday.
David Robertson is a happy man these days. The former Yankee signed a four-year, $46 million deal in the offseason, he’s on an improved White Sox team and now he gets to grow some facial hair.
Masahiro Tanaka thought his spring training debut on Thursday was “good.” His teammates used another word: “great.”
“I’m not hurt. I feel good. That’s the only way I’m judging myself right now,” Sabathia said. “I’m encouraged.”
The Yankees insist there’s nothing behind the curious omission of Alex Rodriguez’s first home run since 2013 on their Twitter page. But fans have taken notice.
By now you’ve probably heard that Chris Capuano – a 36-year-old left-hander and the Yankees’ projected fifth starter – left his exhibition start in the first inning Wednesday with a right quadriceps strain.
Rodriguez hit a long drive to left-center on a 3-1 pitch from right-hander Brandon Workman leading off the fourth inning. Rodriguez has five hits in 11 at-bats (.455) this spring training.
Capuano, 36, was hurt in the first inning Wednesday while covering first base on Brock Holt’s one-out grounder to first baseman Garrett Jones. The left-hander was scheduled for an MRI.
“It’s going to suck,” Teixeira said. “But you have to deal with it. It’s going to tear up the infield, but there’s nothing we can do about it, so we’ll deal with it.”
Back with the New York Yankees as a special adviser to general manager Brian Cashman, Hideki Matsui says he hasn’t thought about managing in the future.
Names alone don’t win games, and the ones Joe Girardi will write on the lineup card are mostly old, some recovering, others waiting for the injury shoe to drop and ruin their seasons.
Manny Machado had three hits and drove in a run, Wei-Yin Chen pitched three scoreless innings and the Baltimore Orioles beat the New York Yankees 3-1 on Tuesday.
The Yankees said Tuesday that the 2009 World Series MVP will work with Cashman and player development vice president Gary Denbo.
