  1. CC Sabathia dispatches Indians in return from disabled list

    Aug 24, 2012, 11:22 PM EST

    CC Sabathia

    CC Sabathia never thought his elbow issue was of major concern, and he dealt a blow to anyone who doubted him by holding the Indians to one run in 7 1/3 innings and striking out nine in a victory Friday night. Sabathia allowed just four hits in improving to 13-3 on the season. An Asdrubal…

  2. UPDATE: Ivan Nova to miss a start after feeling “a grab” in his shoulder

    Aug 22, 2012, 5:02 PM EST

    Ivan Nova

    UPDATE: Sorry for the confusion. I saw one reporter who had Nova going to the DL. Everyone else is reporting that he’ll merely miss a start. 5: 02 PM: Ivan Nova had a bad night last night, and now it’s being reported that he felt “a grab” in his shoulder during his six-run, six-inning performance…

  3. Joba Chamberlain could be on the way to the minors

    Aug 22, 2012, 10:33 AM EST

    New York Yankees v Toronto Blue Jays

    CC Sabathia is coming back? That means someone has to go down or out. And one possibility for that is Joba Chamberlain: With CC Sabathia due back from the disabled list on Friday, the Yankees will have to make a roster move to open a spot for their returning ace. According to a source, the…

  4. CC Sabathia throws bullpen session, set to return Friday

    CC Sabathia had no problems with his sore elbow during a bullpen session yesterday and afterward declared himself ready to come off the disabled list when eligible Friday. Joe Girardi stopped short of making the same proclamation, saying only “it’s possible” when asked about Sabathia feeling ready to return Friday versus the Indians. Assuming he…

    CC Sabathia Getty

    UPDATE: According to Jack Curry of YES Network, today’s bullpen session went off without a hitch. Sabathia is scheduled to throw another one Tuesday, but he was “emphatic” in saying he’ll return next Friday. 11:45 AM: CC Sabathia landed on the disabled list last week due to left elbow soreness, but he’s aiming to return…

  6. Felix Hernandez: MLB’s best young pitcher in 20 years

    Aug 15, 2012, 8:49 PM EST

    Felix Hernandez

    That’s pretty defensible, right. Felix Hernandez debuted at 19, and while he wasn’t great right away — in fact, he was pretty disappointing his first three years — he’s provided a ton of value to the Mariners in going 96-72 with a 3.17 ERA in 230 career starts to date. Baseball-reference WAR rates him as…

  7. Hiroki Kuroda tosses two-hit shutout against Rangers

    Aug 14, 2012, 9:58 PM EST

    Hiroki Kuroda Getty

    The Yankees need a healthy CC Sabathia if they hope to make a legitimate run at the World Series, but Hiroki Kuroda continues to prove that he’s no slouch, either. Kuroda limited the Rangers to just two hits in a complete game 3-0 win tonight at Yankee Stadium. It was his fourth career shutout and…

  8. Derek Lowe notches four-inning save in Yankees debut

    Aug 13, 2012, 10:21 PM EST

    Derek Lowe

    Making his Yankees debut and his first relief appearance since 2007, Derek Lowe notched his first save in 11 years by throwing four scoreless innings in the Bombers’ 8-2 win over the Rangers on Monday. It was Lowe’s 86th career save. The first 85 all came with the Red Sox from 1998-2001. He moved into…

  9. Yankees sign veteran right-hander Derek Lowe

    Aug 11, 2012, 6:33 PM EST

    derek lowe ap

    It took Derek Lowe one day to find a new home. According to beat writer Marc Carig of the Newark Star-Ledger, the Yankees have acquired the free agent right-hander, who was released by the Indians on Friday afternoon after posting a 5.52 ERA, 1.69 WHIP and 41/45 K/BB ratio across 119 innings. Lowe has agreed…

  10. CC Sabathia placed on disabled list because of elbow soreness

    Aug 11, 2012, 4:25 PM EST

    CC Sabathia Getty

    UPDATE: Marc Carig of the Newark Star-Ledger reports that Sabathia will be placed on the disabled list. Yankees manager Joe Girardi told Carig that Sabathia initially felt stiffness in the elbow in his first start back from a groin injury on July 17, but an MRI came back clean. The stiffness went away, but he…

  11. Felix Hernandez outduels Hiroki Kuroda in two-hit shutout against Yankees

    Aug 4, 2012, 4:17 PM EST

    Felix Hernandez AP

    After CC Sabathia pitched a complete game against the Mariners last night, Felix Hernandez thoroughly dominated the Yankees this afternoon. King Felix allowed just two hits in a complete game 1-0 victory over the Bombers. He struck out six and walked a pair while throwing just 101 pitches. The Yankees didn’t get a runner in…

  12. CC Sabathia strikes out 10 in complete game win over Mariners

    Aug 3, 2012, 11:14 PM EST

    Seattle Mariners v New York Yankees

    CC Sabathia and Russell Martin were paired together tonight for just the third time this season and the first time since April 11. We’ll likely see them work together more often the rest of the way. Sabathia allowed three runs on three hits and a walk in a complete game 6-3 victory over the Mariners…

  13. Mark Teixeira back in Yankees lineup after wrist injury

    Aug 3, 2012, 6:18 PM EST

    Mark Teixeira

    Mark Teixeria pronounced himself ready to go after taking grounders and batting practice prior to Friday’s game and was inserted back into the lineup at first base after a two-game absence. Teixeira injured his left wrist Sunday and aggravated it while playing Monday. After an MRI Tuesday came back negative, he was diagnosed with inflammation.…

    Jul 25, 2012, 7:04 AM EST

  15. Report: The Phillies to offer Cole Hamels six years, $130 million

    Jul 18, 2012, 1:30 PM EST

    Cole Hamels

    Jon Heyman reported the other day that the Phillies were prepared to offer “more than $120 million” to Cole Hamels. Now he’s getting more specific: The Phillies are sending signals that they are planning to make an initial offer to star lefthanded pitcher Cole Hamels for about $130 million over six years within the next…

  16. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    Jul 18, 2012, 6:12 AM EST

    April

    Angels/Giants 22, Tigers/Braves 0: So, I’m a Braves fan and my girlfriend is a Tigers fans and each of our teams got the crap beat out of them last night. So we agreed that baseball sucks and decided to watch downloaded “Parks and Recreation” episodes instead. Good call, yes? I mean, Mike Trout and Buster…

  17. CC Sabathia shuts down Blue Jays in return from disabled list

    Jul 17, 2012, 11:45 PM EST

    CC Sabathia

    Back from the disabled list, CC Sabathia didn’t look like he missed a beat. Then again, the Yankees hardly missed one while he was gone. Sabathia pitched scoreless ball into the seventh inning as the Yankees beat the Blue Jays 6-1 on Tuesday. The AL East-leading Yankees went 12-6 while their ace was sidelined due…

  18. Report: The Phillies to offer Hamels $120 million. It still won’t be enough.

    Jul 16, 2012, 5:01 PM EST

    Cole Hamels

    I expect we’ll get a lot of this in the coming weeks then, when Hamels doesn’t sign an extension, it will go quiet. Then, when it comes to free agent time, the numbers will be higher. But for the time being, Jon Heyman reports: The Phillies are said to be planning to offer at least…

  19. Jered Weaver isn’t worried about the $60 million he passed up

    Jul 13, 2012, 6:27 PM EST

    Jered Weaver

    Jered Weaver could have the top pitcher in this year’s free agent class, overtaking Cole Hamels and Zack Greinke. Instead, he’ll make $70 million over the next four years under the terms of the five-year, $85 million deal he signed with the Angels last August. “I know people still talk about it, and how big…

  21. Franklin Morales knocked around as Yankees take first game of doubleheader

    Jul 7, 2012, 4:29 PM EST

    Franklin Morales Reuters

    The Yankees defeated the Red Sox 10-8 last night without hitting a home run, just their second win this season without a homer, but they put on another power display this afternoon. Franklin Morales was knocked around for six runs over just 3 1/3 innings as a Bombers cruised to a 6-1 win in the…

  22. Some rumblings about Zack Greinke going to the Braves

    Jul 3, 2012, 12:31 PM EST

    Zack Greinke

    I call the noise surrounding Zack Greinke possibly being traded to the Braves “rumblings” because they’re something less than rumors. But they’re not nothing. Starting from the notion that (a) the Brewers probably want to trade Greinke; and (b) the Braves could use starting pitching, we go to: I still doubt #Braves would offer Greinke…

  24. Hiroki Kuroda strikes out 11 in win over White Sox

    Jun 30, 2012, 5:00 PM EST

    Hiroki Kuroda Getty

    Who needs CC Sabathia and Andy Pettitte, anyway? OK, well the Yankees do if they hope to go anywhere. But Hiroki Kuroda is holding things down quite nicely at the moment. Kuroda was dominant this afternoon, allowing just three hits over seven shutout innings as part of a 4-0 win over the White Sox. He…

  25. Yankees rule out Andy Pettitte for two months

    Jun 28, 2012, 5:32 PM EST

    Andy Pettitte

    The initial word Wednesday was that Andy Pettitte would miss at least six weeks with the broken left fibula he suffered when hit by a Casey Kotchman liner. The Yankees, though, placed him on the 60-day DL today, suggesting that he’ll be put on a rehab plan to return right around Sept. 1. The Bombers…
