    As expected the Blue Jays have officially announced that DeMarlo Hale has left his position as Orioles third base coach to become their new bench coach and Toronto also named Chad Mottola hitting coach. Mottola was the fifth overall pick in the 1992 draft–one spot ahead of some guy named Derek Jeter–but played just 59…

    According to Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com, the Yankees have renewed their “longstanding interest” in free agent infielder Jeff Keppinger. The Yankees have Eduardo Nunez and Jayson Nix on their roster, but they are currently seeking a veteran infielder who can play third base and fill in at shortstop with Derek Jeter coming off ankle surgery.…

    New York Yankees shortstop Jeter screams as he injures himself fielding a ball hit by  Detroit Tigers' Peralta during the 12th inning of Game 1 of their MLB ALCS playoff baseball series in New York

    Joe Girardi cast some doubt on Derek Jeter‘s ability to return from a broken ankle by Opening Day, saying yesterday that “there’s a little bit of a question” about whether he’ll be recovered in time to be in the Yankees’ lineup. Jeter broke his left ankle in Game 1 of the ALCS and underwent surgery…

  5. The Yankees expect Mariano Rivera to take a pay cut

    Nov 7, 2012, 3:00 PM EDT

    Mariano Rivera

    Jon Heyman reports that the Yankees are expected to ask Mariano Rivera to take a “significant paycut” as part of a new contract. He made $15 million in 2012. Heyman thinks the Yankees could ask him to take $10 million in 2013, possibly with incentives.  Which doesn’t seem unreasonable given his age and the fact…

    I stopped caring about the Gold Glove awards sometime between designated hitter Rafael Palmeiro winning one as a “first baseman” and Derek Jeter winning five as a “shortstop” but MLB has announced three (or four) finalists per league at each position and here they are: (Note: Coaches and managers vote for the Gold Glove award…

    Miguel Cabrera is The Sporting News’ 2012 Player of the Year after being picked by 108 of the 203 players to vote. Mike Trout was second with 71 votes.

    It takes more than a couple of goats for a team to get swept in a seven-game series. Let’s run down the five people most responsible for the Yankee meltdown. Derek Jeter‘s ankle not being a person, we’ll leave it out of this. 5. Eric Chavez – Alex Rodriguez struggled mightily, yet Chavez was worse.…

    If Derek Jeter‘s broken ankle didn’t take him out of the mix for the World Baseball Classic the moment it happened, today’s news that he needs surgery definitely makes the issue moot. But as unfortunate as Jeter’s injury is for the Yankees, it’s not necessarily a bad thing for Team USA in next spring’s World…

    Donald Trump weighed in on A-Rod’s struggles and Derek Jeter‘s injury in the past day or so. And he did it with his usual subtlety. On A-Rod: Trump called on star Alex Rodriguez to donate his contract to charity. “He doesn’t make the Yankees any money and he doesn’t perform,” Trump tweeted. “He is a $30M/yr…

    The Tigers are up 2-0 in the ALCS. They are back home in Detroit. The Yankees offense is sending scribes to the thesaurus to find new words to describe their anemic offense ( feeble, infirm, pallid, sickly, wan, impotent, debilitated, decrepit, enervated, faint, flaccid, forceless, frail, impuissant).  And, oh yeah, Justin Verlander is on the mound…

Here’s more from Swisher: That’s the last thing that I ever thought would be…

    A source tells Wallace Matthews of ESPN New York that Derek Jeter will likely need surgery on his broken ankle. While he has yet to meet with the specialist in North Carolina who will make that final determination, Matthews is reporting that Jeter suffered ligament damage making surgery necessary.  The surgery should not affect his availability for…

    Tigers starter Anibal Sanchez yielded just three hits over seven shutout innings and third baseman Miguel Cabrera went 2-for-4 with an RBI as the Tigers rolled to a far-too-easy 3-0 victory over the Yankees on Sunday evening in Game 2 of the ALCS.

    There was some thought after Derek Jeter was diagnosed with a fractured left ankle late Saturday night that the Yankees might try Alex Rodriguez at shortstop at some point during the remainder of this 2012 postseason. But that will not be happening. Yankees manager Joe Girardi made it clear to reporters in his postgame press…

    Derek Jeter

    The Yankees were already going it without Mariano Rivera this month, a strange sight to everyone who has followed baseball since the mid-1990s. But then Rivera was only out there for one or two innings per night. Derek Jeter was the immovable object. The Yankees have played in 158 postseason games since 1996, and Jeter…
