    Mark Teixeira

    While Curtis Granderson threw today for this first time since his broken right forearm, another big bat in the Yankees’ lineup is inching closer to a return. According to the Associated Press, Mark Teixeira hopes to be cleared to take “dry swings” tomorrow following a visit to hand and wrist specialist Dr. Melvin Rosenwasser. The…

    Good news for the Bombers. Curtis Granderson confirmed on his Twitter account this afternoon that he was able to throw today for the first time since he suffered a broken right forearm when he was hit by a pitch on February 24. First day of throwing completed and it went really well. Another good sign…

  4. Samuel Deduno completes WBC breakthrough with title game victory

    Mar 19, 2013, 11:37 PM EDT

    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…

    As first reported by the YES Network, the Yankees have officially cut ties with outfielder Matt Diaz, who was in camp this spring on a minor league contract. Diaz went 6-for-30 (.200/.250/.200) this year in the Grapefruit League, netting zero extra-base hits. The 35-year-old will hope to catch on with a new team that is…

  6. Ben Francisco signs with Yankees after being released by Indians

    Mar 11, 2013, 1:50 PM EDT

    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…

  7. Mariano Rivera spotless in first game action since knee surgery

    After announcing his intention to retire following the 2013 season earlier this morning, Rivera made his Grapefruit League debut this afternoon against the Braves. And it didn’t take him long to shake the rust following knee surgery. In his first game action since last May, Rivera notched two strikeouts over a perfect inning of work.…

  8. Mark Teixeira out 8-10 weeks with strained wrist tendon

    Mark Teixeira was initially said to have strained his forearm hitting off a tee Tuesday, but the Yankees just announced that he’s been diagnosed with a strained right wrist tendon and will be out 8-10 weeks. Teixeira, who was removed from the Team USA roster for the World Baseball Classic and replaced by Royals first…

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

    Feb 27, 2013, 8:53 AM EDT

    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…

  10. 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. Brian Cashman said almost immediately that it wasn’t in the plans and today the general manager followed up by ruling it out completely: I love Johnny Damon, he was an awesome Yankee…

  11. Johnny Damon would like the Yankees to give him a call

    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.…

  12. 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…

  13. Curtis Granderson has broken right forearm, out 10 weeks

    Feb 24, 2013, 3:17 PM EDT

    Brutal news this afternoon out of Yankees camp. According to Jack Curry of the YES Network, outfielder Curtis Granderson has been diagnosed with a fractured right forearm and will need 10 weeks of rest and rehab. Which means he probably won’t be ready for action until late April or early May. Granderson suffered the injury…

    Yankees outfielder Curtis Granderson was hit on his right arm by a J.A. Happ pitch in the second inning of Sunday’s Grapefruit League game vs. the Blue Jays. Granderson appeared to be in pain and was immediately lifted, but the early word is good. According to beat man Andy McCullough of the Newark Star-Ledger, Granderson…

  15. Curtis Granderson starts taking fly balls in left field

    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. No official decision has been made yet, but it sounds like the switch is in the works. Jack Curry of…

  16. Yankees still deciding between Curtis Granderson or Brett Gardner in center field

    AP Granderson Gardner

    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…

  17. 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…

  18. The Yankees are still interested in Scott Hairston

    Dec 28, 2012, 11:03 AM EDT

    Scott Hairston

    In past years I would not make much of an effort to post about the Yankees’ possible interest in role players, but in a world where their failure to land guys like Jeff Keppinger and Nate Schierholtz actually upsets people, this is relevant: The Yankees starting outfield is Brett Gardner, Curtis Granderson and Ichiro Suzuki ……

  19. Report: Mariners have “serious interest” in Raul Ibanez

    The Mariners acquired Kendrys Morales from the Angels this week in exchange for Jason Vargas, but they aren’t done trying to add bats. George A. King III of the New York Post reports that the Mariners have “serious interest” in Raul Ibanez. It’s a bit of an odd fit on the surface, as the club…

  20. Brian Cashman says Yankees “are talking to Raul Ibanez”

    Dec 19, 2012, 9:15 AM EDT

    Raul Ibanez

    General manager Brian Cashman said yesterday that the Yankees “are taking to Raul Ibanez” about returning to New York. Ibanez came up huge in the postseason, but had a modest regular season performance at age 40, hitting .240 with 19 homers and a .761 OPS in a platoon role that shielded him from tough left-handed…

  21. The Yankees are close to bringing back Ichiro Suzuki

    Dec 10, 2012, 6:31 PM EDT

    New York Yankees v Detroit Tigers - Game Four

    We saw a premature report out of Japan late last month, but it appears that Ichiro Suzuki will indeed be back with the Yankees next season. ESPN’s Buster Olney reports that the Yankees are “moving closer” to an agreement with Ichiro and that a deal is expected to be done within the next few days.…

  22. The Yankees are listening to offers for Granderson, Hughes and Nova

    We heard about the Yankees’ willingness to listen to offers for Curtis Granderson the other day, but Andrew Marchand of ESPN New York says that they’re willing to listen to offers for Phil Hughes and Ivan Nova as well. I can see dealing Nova, but Hughes is, at present anyway, the team’s third or fourth…

    curtis granderson getty

    One of the biggest trades in recent history went down at the Winter Meetings a few years ago. It involved Curtis Granderson. Could we see such a thing happen again this year? Buster Olney says it’s at least possible: NYY have been open to talks about Curtis Granderson. If they move his $15m salary, it…

    Here’s the official list of Friday’s non-tenders: American League Angels: none Athletics: OF Jermaine Mitchell Mitchell had already been designated for assignment. He had a breakthrough 2011 in Triple-A, hitting .302/.401/.453, but he regressed to .252/.345/.386 for Sacramento last season.

    Detroit has non-tendered left-handed reliever Daniel Schlereth, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports. Schlereth was the Diamondbacks’ first-round pick in 2008 and went to the Tigers in the big three-team deal with the Yankees involving Curtis Granderson, Max Scherzer, Ian Kennedy, Austin Jackson, Edwin Jackson, and Phil Coke in December of 2009. He tossed 49 innings…
