    Toronto has called up utility man Munenori Kawasaki from the minors for some infield depth and in a surprising move they demoted right-hander Steve Delabar to Triple-A to make room for him on the roster.

    I saw Captain America last night. It was way better than the first few innings of the Tigers-Dodgers game.

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

    Apr 8, 2014, 12:46 PM EDT

    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.

  7. David Robertson has a groin strain, is heading for the disabled list

    The Yankees closer is going to be gone at least 15 days. Maybe more.

    Between now and Opening Day, HardballTalk will take a look at each of baseball’s 30 teams, asking the key questions, the not-so-key questions, and generally breaking down their chances for the 2014 season.

  9. Ranking the bullpens: 2014 edition

    Feb 7, 2014, 9:00 AM EDT

    Detroit Tigers v Atlanta Braves

    We tried this with the rotations the other day. Once again, I’ll be dipping into my 2014 projections here to rank the bullpens. To come up with the following bullpen ERAs, I simply combined each team’s seven highest-IP relievers, according to my projections. AL Royals – 2.93 Red Sox – 3.14 Athletics – 3.16 Rangers…

  10. Ranking the best 1-2 rotation punches in baseball

    Jan 22, 2014, 9:25 PM EDT

    The Yankees made headlines when it was announced that they had signed Japanese pitcher Masahiro Tanaka to a seven-year deal worth $155 million. They were in need of rotation help and satisfied that need in a big way by signing the best free agent pitcher on the market. That the Yankees signed him came as…

  11. 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,…

  12. Yankees eliminated with Indians’ victory

    Sep 25, 2013, 10:47 PM EDT

    Yankees' Ryan, Cano and Reynolds wait for new pitcher after the Rays scored four runs in MLB game in New York

    It’s official: the Yankees’ season is over after 162 games for just the second time in the wild card era. The Bombers were eliminated from contention when the Indians topped the White Sox 7-2 on Wednesday evening. Just a few minutes later, they wrapped up an 8-3 loss to the Rays, leaving them with an…

  13. Alex Rodriguez passes Lou Gehrig as all-time grand slam leader

    Sep 20, 2013, 11:20 PM EDT

    San Francisco Giants v New York Yankees

    Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez put his team up 5-1 with a seventh-inning grand slam against Giants reliever George Kontos. The slam was Rodriguez’s 24th of his career, overtaking Yankees great Lou Gehrig’s Major League record. David Robertson and Mariano Rivera teamed up to keep the Giants off the board in the eighth and ninth…

  14. The Roberto Clemente Award Nominees have been announced

    Sep 16, 2013, 3:30 PM EDT

    Clemente

    The Roberto Clemente Award goes to the Major Leaguer who “best exemplifies the game of baseball, sportsmanship, community involvement and the individual’s contribution to his team.” Clayton Kershaw won it last year.  The 2013 nominees — one per team — were just announced and are listed below. And now my annual complaint, albeit a minor one: Baseball has set…

  15. Mariano Rivera deprived of a save because David Robertson stunk

    Sep 13, 2013, 9:35 AM EDT

    rivera getty

    This pretty much tells you that both reliever wins and the save statistic are, to say the least, flawed: Mariano Rivera came into the ninth inning with a one-run lead, closed the game out and … didn’t get the save.  Why? Because in this case it was a judgment call by the official scorer pursuant…

  16. Red Sox wrecking crew does it again, beats Yanks 13-9

    Sep 7, 2013, 5:07 PM EDT

    Boston Red Sox Jonny Gomes runs after he hit three-run home run off New York Yankees David Huff  in MLB game in New York

    The Yankees have scored 25 runs the last three days, with no victories to show for it. That’s because the Red Sox bashed their way to another win Saturday, hitting four homers in a 13-9 game. They’ve scored 34 runs so far in the series and 54 in their last four games. The 34 runs…

  17. Red Sox best Mariano Rivera, beat Yankees in 10 innings

    Sep 6, 2013, 12:02 AM EDT

    Boston Red Sox Jacoby Ellsbury scores at home plate as New York Yankees Austin Romine cannot hold the throw in their MLB game in New York

    Call it “Deja Drew.” After the Red Sox let a five-run lead slip away, things were going all according to plan for the Yankees on Thursday. David Robertson pitched a perfect eighth up 8-7, and Mariano Rivera retired the first two batters he faced in the ninth. That’s when things unraveled. Mike Napoli, who was…

  18. Mark Reynolds homers in debut, Alfonso Soriano stays red hot as Yankees win

    Aug 16, 2013, 11:05 PM EDT

    New York Yankees v Boston Red Sox

    In the lineup at first base in his first game as a Yankee, Mark Reynolds made it count. Reynolds blasted a two-run home run to left field off of Felix Doubront in the second inning, bolstering the Yankee lead to 3-0. Meanwhile, outfielder Alfonso Soriano continued to stay red hot. The former Cub entered the…

  19. Yankees win, A-Rod disappoints in home debut

    Aug 10, 2013, 12:05 AM EDT

    Detroit Tigers v New York Yankees

    Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez went 0-for-4 in his season debut at Yankee Stadium and closer Mariano Rivera blew his second save in a row, but the Yankees won anyway thanks to a Brett Gardner walk-off single with the bases loaded in the bottom of the 11th. In the bottom of the first, Rodriguez strode…

  20. Freddie Freeman Mania! He leads Puig in All-Star final vote

    Jul 8, 2013, 11:32 AM EDT

    2013 All Star Game Logo

    I have this funny feeling that the MLB All-Star “Final Vote” thing — in which fans pick the last member of the All-Star roster — is ultimately gonna have Yasiel Puig join the NL squad. It’s what the league wants, what fans, on the whole, probably want and it’s what will prove to be more…

  21. Evan Longoria, Stephen Strasburg lead All-Star snubs

    Jul 6, 2013, 8:21 PM EDT

    Evan Longoria

    No matter how bloated the All-Star rosters get, it’s never hard to find imperfections. This year, two of the AL’s top 10 performers to date have been left off for no good reason. For some reason, manager Jim Leyland’s squad took three catchers and four second basemen, but just two from third base, which has…

  22. Who is Alex Rodriguez following on Twitter?

    Jun 26, 2013, 11:19 AM EDT

    Screen Shot 2013-06-26 at 9.41.35 AM

    Sure, the big news about Alex Rodriguez joining Twitter this week is that he almost immediately managed to piss off Yankees general manager Brian Cashman, but as a Twitter addict I’m more interested in who A-Rod has chosen to follow. So far he’s followed 41 accounts, including lots of Yankees-related stuff like the Yankees’ official…

  23. Yankees set to activate Joba Chamberlain from disabled list

    May 28, 2013, 1:55 PM EDT

    According to Bryan Hoch of MLB.com the Yankees will activate Joba Chamberlain from the disabled list for tonight’s game after the right-hander missed the past four weeks with a strained oblique. Chamberlain threw two innings in an extended spring training game Saturday and told Hoch that he was clocked in the mid-90s, which suggests at…

  24. David Robertson slept on his arm funny, has a stiff shoulder

    Mar 7, 2013, 1:18 PM EDT

    Reuters David Robertson

    As if the Yankees didn’t already have enough health issues wrecking their roster now setup man David Robertson is sidelined by shoulder stiffness. Andy McCullough of the Newark Star Ledger reports that Robertson’s scheduled appearance Tuesday night was canceled when he had trouble getting warmed up, with the right-hander explaining that he slept on his…

  25. Joba Chamberlain’s chance to start will come next year

    Feb 27, 2013, 2:16 PM EDT

    Joba Chamberlain

    Chances are that Joba Chamberlain is entering his final season with the Yankees. While he’s spent the majority of the last two seasons on the disabled list, he’s continued to amass service time and he’ll be eligible for free agency next winter at the tender age of 28. The news yesterday that Chamberlain still thinks…
