    That’s more contact on this one swing than he’ll usually make in ten.

    brendan ryan yankees

    Brendan Ryan was slated to be the Yankees’ utility infielder and Derek Jeter insurance, but instead he’s likely to begin the season on the disabled list with a back injury. Ryan hasn’t played in a game since March 4 and tweaked his back warming up yesterday, canceling plans to rejoin the Yankees’ lineup. Ryan and…

  11. Derek Jeter is in The Best Shape of His Life

    Because of course he is: In Jeter’s retirement call, Hal Steinbrenner said he said, “I know everybody says this, but I feel like I’m in the best shape of my life.” — Jack Curry (@JackCurryYES) March 7, 2014   Guess that means Brendan Ryan isn’t going to get as much playing time as he hoped.

  12. Report: The Yankees are now considering going after Stephen Drew

    Stephen Drew Getty

    With questions all over their infield, many have speculated that free agent Stephen Drew could be a good fit for the Yankees. Now that the Yankees have blown past the $189 million threshold with the Masahiro Tanaka signing, CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman hears that they are considering the possibility: There has been a thought the…

  13. Masahiro Tanaka will help, but the Yankees need much more than him to be a contender

    The offseason distorts things. The wintertime focus on individual player signings and the underlying optimism everyone seems to have about the prospects of their local nine often makes us forget that, in baseball, one player cannot make the difference between winning and losing. Heck, sometimes even three players don’t. Just ask Albert Pujols, Josh Hamilton,…

    According to the Associated Press, Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter had his first on-field workout today since his injury-plagued 2013 season. After hitting off a tee in a batting cage and fielding 108 grounders at the Yankees minor league complex in Tampa, Florida, he told reporters that his left ankle is no longer an issue. Jeter,…

    The Indians just announced that they have signed outfielder Jeff Francoeur to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training. ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick reported earlier this evening that the two sides were close to a deal. Francoeur, who turns 30 on Wednesday, hit rock bottom last season by batting just .204/.238/.298 with three…

    Peter Gammons says: Brian Cashman yesterday said Yanks are not signing Stephen Drew. How Sox do pillow contract that isn’t shoved down his throat is delicate — Peter Gammons (@pgammo) December 31, 2013   I think, politically speaking, it’s hard for the Yankees to sign Drew because Derek Jeter is still there and they signed…

    Michael Young Getty

    Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com reports that the Yankees are contemplating Mark Reynolds, Michael Young and Brian Roberts as they seek to add to their infield.  Reynolds would be a re-signing after finishing last season with the Bombers. He hit .236/.300/.455 with six homers in 36 games with the Yankees and .220/.306/.393 with 21 homers in…

  19. Darwin Barney could be an option for the Yankees

    Darwin Barney Getty

    Many viewed Omar Infante as the most likely replacement for Robinson Cano, but that possibility is off the board now that he has reportedly agreed to a four-year, $30 million deal with the Royals. Bruce Levine of 670 The Score in Chicago now wonders whether the Yankees will revisit the idea of trading for Cubs…

  20. Pirates re-sign Clint Barmes

    Dec 12, 2013, 12:12 PM EST

    Pittsburgh Pirates v Chicago Cubs

    Clint Barmes has had back-to-back terrible seasons for the Pirates, hitting a combined .221 with a .579 OPS in 252 games, but Buster Olney of ESPN.com reports that Pittsburgh has re-signed the 35-year-old shortstop for $2 million. Obviously the Pirates like Barmes for his defense, which has always been strong, although at age 35 that’s…

  21. Yankees reportedly in on everyone now that Robinson Cano is off the board

    Dec 6, 2013, 7:20 PM EST

    Carlos Beltran

    Earlier today, second baseman Robinson Cano signed with the Mariners on a ten-year, $240 million contract, leaving the Yankees out in the cold with an infield that includes the embattled Alex Rodriguez, the hobbled Derek Jeter, the recovering Mark Teixeira, and the recently-signed Kelly Johnson. Now that they don’t have to set aside space for…

  23. Cardinals put faith in defensive numbers in signing Jhonny Peralta

    Nov 24, 2013, 12:35 PM EST

    Jhonny Peralta

    Jhonny Peralta should be a terrible defensive shortstop. Defensive ability peaks significantly younger than offensive ability, and Peralta wasn’t really any good defensively in what should have been his prime. As a 24-year-old in 2006, he was the game’s second worst shortstop by UZR. In 2007, he was the fifth worst. By 2008, Peralta graded…
