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.
“There’s always a little bit of concern, but it’s upper back by his shoulder blades, so we’ll see how he is in a couple of days,” manager Joe Girardi said. “You’re usually more concerned about the lower (back problem) lingering.”
The Bombers are open for business! Among the storylines: Who will nab the No. 5 spot in the rotation? Will Mariano Rivera be as dominant as ever? And what’s up at catcher?
The Yankees are good, not great. And that’s probably not good enough, especially when you gauge how they gouge you at the turnstiles. $5 waters and $10 beers don’t taste too hot when the team gets cold and old.
2013 brings major issues and tons of uncertainty for the aging, payroll-trimming New York Yankees.
For a team that trades on tradition, symbolism and success, the Yankees just took a giant leap toward remaining competitive, if not contenders, in 2013 by signing Andy Pettitte.
There was a point in the last week where it may have seemed that Hiroki Kuroda was going to pitch elsewhere in 2013. Eat without worry, my friends. Kuroda is indeed coming back to the Yankees next season.
If New York manages to storm back from a 3-0 series deficit, it won’t be CC Sabathia on the hill for a deciding Game 7. Blame it on the rain.
CC Sabathia inspires belief. And that’s exactly what the Yankees are in desperate need of going into Game 4 of the ALCS down 3-0.
Justin Verlander took a shutout into the ninth inning and the Detroit Tigers held on to beat the New York Yankees 2-1 Tuesday night for a 3-0 lead in the AL championship series.
