    Aug 4, 2014, 1:33 PM EDT

    New York Yankees v Baltimore Orioles

    Because the injuries to the Yankees’ starting rotation apparently never stop, David Phelps exited last night’s game after two innings with what the team is calling right elbow inflammation.

    The Yankees have lost four-fifths of their starting rotation with Masahiro Tanaka, CC Sabathia, Michael Pineda, and Ivan Nova all sidelined due to injury, but general manager Brian Cashman isn’t ready to throw in the towel on the season.

    May 6, 2014, 2:14 PM EDT

    Gerry David, Michael Pineda

    Yankees right-hander Michael Pineda threw a simulated game today in order to maintain his arm strength during his 10-game suspension, but now he’s headed for an MRI exam after experiencing soreness in his lat muscle.

    Yankees starter Michael Pineda was very clearly using pine tar to get a better grip on his pitches during an April 10 start against the rival Red Sox. He tried it again in his start Wednesday night at a blistery Fenway Park and got caught red-handed.

  14. Mariano Rivera’s replacement’s replacement? Joe Girardi has no idea

    David Robertson

    David Robertson was the easy choice to replace Mariano Rivera as the Yankees’ closer, but now that Robertson is out with a groin injury manager Joe Girardi isn’t sure who’ll be taking over ninth-inning duties.

  15. Michael Pineda makes his case for a rotation spot

    Michael Pineda AP

    Dogged by shoulder issues, Michael Pineda has yet to throw a regular season pitch for the Yankees since being acquired from the Mariners two offseasons ago, but he showed a glimpse of his old form last night. Making his spring debut, Pineda tossed two scoreless innings in a Grapefruit League game against the Tigers. Topping…

    Reporters haven’t been able to do much better than “Bigfoot off in the distance” pictures of Derek Jeter working out down in Tampa, but the Yankees’ David Phelps has an early review of the Captain on the Comeback Trail: “Derek looks amazing. That’s awesome . . . You can tell he’s determined to go out there…

    I’ll be dipping into my Rotoworld player projections from time to time for HBT posts. Here’s the first of this year: my ranking of each five-man rotation as we head into 2014. Before actually posting my 1-30, I’ll start with my raw ERA rankings by league. A couple of qualifications: I’m only using the top…

    Aug 7, 2013, 11:51 AM EDT

    New York Yankees v Baltimore Orioles

    David Phelps has been on the disabled list for a month with a strained forearm and now his minor-league rehab assignment has been put on hold due to a new injury. Andy McCullough of the Newark Star Ledger reports that Phelps has been diagnosed with “another strain in the area that connects his forearm and…

  19. Report: Yankees getting hits on Phil Hughes

    Jul 31, 2013, 2:43 PM EDT

    Phil Hughes

    USA TODAY’s Bob Nightengale reports that the Yankees have gotten two offers for Phil Hughes in advance of the trade deadline. Hughes is a free agent at season’s end, and it’s unlikely that the Yankees will re-sign him, given his problems in Yankee Stadium. Hughes is 4-9 with a 4.58 ERA this season, but he…

  20. Yankees activate Eduardo Nunez, place David Phelps on DL with forearm strain

    The Yankees have activated infielder Eduardo Nunez from the 60-day disabled list while right-hander David Phelps has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a slight sprain of his right forearm. Nunez has been sidelined for two months with a left ribcage strain. The 26-year-old batted .375 (6-for-16) with one RBI and four walks…

  21. Chris Davis hit his 29th and 30th homers of the season

    Jun 29, 2013, 9:35 PM EDT

    New York Yankees v Baltimore Orioles

    If it weren’t for Miguel Cabrera, Chris Davis would have been all we’d have talked about this season. The Orioles first baseman’s ridiculous season continued tonight as he mashed two home runs: a three-run shot in the bottom of the first off of Yankees starter David Phelps, and a two-run shot in the bottom of…

  22. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Jun 10, 2013, 6:49 AM EDT

    St. Louis Cardinals v Cincinnati Reds

    Cardinals 11, Reds 4: I’ll take “Improbable scores for an extra-inning game for $200, Alex.” It was already 7-4 in the top of the 10th when Matt Holliday came to the plate but he hit a grand slam off Curtis Partch to truly ice the game. J.J. Hoover was charged with six of the seven…

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

    Jun 5, 2013, 7:03 AM EDT

    Miami Marlins v Philadelphia Phillies

    Phillies 7, Marlins 3: John Mayberry had a walkoff grand slam. Probably good that the Phillies won this one. After a brutally bad call by Bob Davidson in the bottom of the eighth on a Ben Revere takeout slide, the crowd didn’t stop letting the umps hear it. Apparently none of the tens of thousands…

  24. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    May 30, 2013, 7:11 AM EDT

    Chicago White Sox v Chicago Cubs

    Players who hit multiple home runs in a game are the new inefficiency. Teams should definitely stock up on those guys while they’re undervalued. Cubs 9, White Sox 3: Backup catcher Dioner Navarro smacked three homers — a solo, a two-run and a three-run jack — to pace the Cubbies. A Cubbies team who happen…

  25. Robinson Cano homers twice in win over Blue Jays

    Robinson Cano Getty

    Robinson Cano homered twice while David Phelps had the longest outing of his career as the Yankees topped the Blue Jays 7-2 this afternoon at Yankee Stadium. Brandon Morrow, who was recently skipped twice in Toronto’s rotation due to neck and back tightness, gave up five runs in five innings in the loss. Cano did…
