    Every now and again — well, let’s face it, pretty much every day now — I get another email telling me that Vernon Wells — Vernon Bleepin’ Wells — just got another two hits with another homer with another three RBIs and so on. The emails are from Michael Schur, Parks and Recreation executive producer,…

    Brennan Boesch, who signed a one-year, $1.5 million deal with the Yankees after being released by the Tigers in the middle of spring training, has been demoted to Triple-A. Boesch hit just .205 with two homers and a .680 OPS in 19 games for the Yankees, which is pretty similar to his underwhelming production for…

    It sounds like Curtis Granderson will beat both Mark Teixeira and Kevin Youkilis back from the disabled list, as Yankees manager Joe Girardi said yesterday that the center fielder is “probably pretty close” to returning from a fractured right wrist. There’s no official timetable yet for Granderson’s return, but after talking to Girardi and general…

    Vernon Wells

    Ho-hum. Just another day of Vernon Wells, Travis Hafner and Lyle Overbay doing the heavy lifting for the Yankees’ offense. Wait, what’s that? Wells, Hafner, and Overbay all homered last night as the Yankees topped the Blue Jays 9-4 at Rogers Centre in Toronto. After dropping four out of their first five games, the Yankees…

    Samuel Deduno

    Yan Gomes, the only major leaguer Brazil has ever produced, opted out of the World Baseball Classic to help his chances of making the Indians. He won’t. Melky Mesa, a veteran minor leaguer in the Yankees system, was all set to be part of the Dominican Republic’s left-field committee. Then Curtis Granderson got hurt. Presented…

    Ben Francisco

    UPDATE: That was quick. Less than three hours after the Indians released him Francisco has signed a minor-league deal with the Yankees, according to Joel Sherman of the New York Post. Seems like a good fit with Curtis Granderson and Mark Teixeira out. ========== Cleveland has released outfielder Ben Francisco, who signed a minor-league deal…

    After announcing his intention to retire following the 2013 season earlier this morning, Rivera made his Grapefruit League debut this afternoon against the Braves.

  17. Yankees don’t view Eduardo Nunez as option to replace Curtis Granderson

    eduardo-nunez-yankees

    Brian Cashman shot down any chance of the Yankees signing Johnny Damon to replace the injured Curtis Granderson and the general manager also ruled out Eduardo Nunez as an option to play left field, saying: “I don’t think he profiles as an outfielder with the bat.” That may surprise some Yankee fans because the knock…

  18. Johnny Damon can stop waiting for the Yankees to call him

    Feb 26, 2013, 5:17 PM EDT

    Brian Cashman, Johnny Damon

    Johnny Damon said yesterday that he’d like the Yankees to give him a call as a short-term replacement for the injured Curtis Granderson.

    Feb 25, 2013, 5:17 PM EDT

    Johnny Damon

    Johnny Damon has been unsuccessfully trying to land another job since the Indians released him in August, so not surprisingly he’s hoping the Yankees give him a call with Curtis Granderson out. Damon appeared on Michael Kay’s radio show today and said, among other things, that he has “tons of interest” in rejoining the Yankees.…

  20. Alfonso Soriano as a Granderson replacement seems far-fetched

    Feb 24, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

    Curtis Granderson

    The silver lining about a 10-week injury to Curtis Granderson: Opening Day is still more than a month away. Losing Granderson’s power is far from an ideal way for the Yankees to start the spring, but it’s hardly a season-wrecker either. And while there might be some concern over whether Granderson will regain his power…

    AP Granderson Gardner

    As of two weeks ago the Yankees were undecided about whether they were better off sticking with Curtis Granderson in center field or shifting him to left field and moving Brett Gardner to center field.

    Now that Brett Gardner is healthy again the Yankees have the option of shifting Curtis Granderson from center field to left field and apparently they’re still debating the switch. “We have two center fielders, as we’ve had for three years, manning two-thirds of our outfield,” general manager Cashman said, via Bryan Hoch of MLB.com. “It’s…

  25. Michael Bourn is still waiting for some love

    Jan 20, 2013, 8:19 PM EDT

    Michael Bourn

    Considered by many as the No. 2 free agent hitter available this winter, Michael Bourn has now gone three months with seemingly no market developing for his services. The Braves struck early to sign B.J. Upton to replace him. The Phillies also targeted Upton and then traded for Ben Revere after coming up short. The…
