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?
Let’s remember how long a baseball season is. When 2012 began, the Marlins and the Angels were supposed to be in the playoffs and the A’s and the Orioles weren’t. We still haven’t played Game 1 of 162. Let’s try to enjoy the ride.
Yankees starter Phil Hughes was struck in the back by a comebacker, but appears uninjured.
Hughes has thrown 27 pitches off a bullpen mound three weeks after being diagnosed with a bulging disk in his upper back. Hughes said the session on Monday was a big step in trying to be ready to pitch during the opening week of the regular season.
Zach McAllister should break 200 if he stays healthy this year, which will be a boon to the back end of the Tribe’s rotation.
David Phelps improved his chances of making the Yankees rotation by giving the Bombers another superb outing in their win over Jays on Sunday.
The baseball gods may just have doomed the Bombers to a bad season, a year where they get to see how the other half lives.
Mark Teixeira is confident that the New York Yankees can overcome key injuries likely to impact the team through the first month of the regular season.
Yankees right-hander Phil Hughes says he is scheduled to throw off a mound Saturday for the first time since being sidelined by a bulging disk in his upper back three weeks ago.
Hiroki Kuroda allowed four runs — one earned — and three hits over 1 2/3 innings in his initial exhibition-game start for the Yankees. The Yankees had four errors and gave up six unearned runs. New York has 13 errors in eight games.
The Phil Hughes situation may well prove how nice it is to have some experienced depth in the rotation.
The 43-year-old Rivera threw 25 pitches Friday and said he was happy with the results. He expects to be ready when the Yankees open the regular season on April 1 against Boston.
Yankees outfielders Curtis Granderson and Brett Gardner could be switching positions. Granderson worked out in left field on Thursday and the speedy Gardner switched to center.
Opening Day is 39 days away. That’s right. Thirty-nine days! And it wouldn’t feel like baseball season is just around the corner without starting the season off the right way…
Yankees pitcher Phil Hughes could be sidelined for two weeks because of a bulging disk that will be treated with anti-inflammatory medication.
