    Sidelined since August 2 with a right calf strain, Derek Jeter made his return from the disabled list tonight and went 0-for-3 with a walk in a 5-2 loss to the Blue Jays. Jeter grounded out in his first two at-bats, the second of which was a double play ball. The 39-year-old worked a walk…

    Joe Girardi and Derek Jeter have confirmed that Jeter will rejoin the Yankees tonight in Toronto. He will, presumably, be the starting shortstop. Jeter missed the first 91 games of the season recovering from the broken ankle suffered in the ALCS. Then he played a game, hurt his quad, went back on the DL, played…

  5. Ichiro Suzuki, Warren Moon and amazing stories

    Ichiro Suzuki Reuters

    First of all, the Ichiro getting to 4,000 total hits thing is awesome. No qualifier. It’s awesome. Ichiro is a singular player, absolutely one-of-a-kind. No player in Major League Baseball history has stockpiled hits as quickly as Ichiro Suzuki. He has 2,722 hits in his first 13 seasons — that’s 175 more than Pete Rose.…

    There’s no timetable for Derek Jeter‘s return from the disabled list because, as Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News reports, the Yankees shortstop has not been cleared to resume running yet. Jeter has been on the disabled list since August 3 with a strained right calf and has progressed enough to take batting…

    Chad Curtis

    Chad Curtis, whose major league career featured stints with the Angels, Tigers, Dodgers, Indians, Yankees and Rangers — and who has two World Series rings from his time in the Bronx — is on trial in Michigan on multiple counts of criminal sexual conduct arising out of his time as a volunteer weightlifting coach at a high school.

    Oh no! Derek Jeter‘s ongoing health issues stealing the spotlight from the summer of Mariano Rivera! The Daily News reports that The Captain is not close to returning and that, after the current homestand, where he has been with the team, he’s likely to return to Florida. Joe Girardi says that once he’s down there…

    All kinds of baseball on the late night shows last night. Following up on Mark Cuban on Jay Leno, Derek Jeter was on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night, where he auditioned some possible new walkup music by The Roots and Fallon. Option three is actually pretty freakin’ sweet. He’ll never use it because…

  11. Derek Jeter goes on DL to make room for Alex Rodriguez

    Aug 5, 2013, 5:58 PM EST

    Derek Jeter

    Maybe the Yankees were thinking of waiting a couple of more days to see how Derek Jeter‘s injured calf would respond, but that would have required cutting an infielder to make room for the returning Alex Rodriguez on Monday. Instead, they chose the prudent course and placed Jeter on the disabled list for the third…

  12. Alex Rodriguez’s “legacy” will not be tainted by his Biogenesis suspension. It was tainted years ago.

    In light of today’s forthcoming suspension many will, once again, rush in front of television cameras to tell us how Alex Rodriguez‘s legacy is now tarnished. Or “now forever tarnished.” Or “his legacy, once sterling, is now as tarnished as … hmm … what is something that is tarnished …?  Bob, get that intern to…

    Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter sat out the final two games of this weekend’s series in San Diego against the Padres with an ailing calf.

    Leading off the top of the eighth inning with his team trailing the Padres 6-3, Robinson Cano weakly grounded out to second baseman Logan Forsythe, who handily threw him out at first with plenty of time to spare. Cano lightly jogged down the first base line before turning back towards the dugout. Michael Kay, leading…

    This fascinating interview of Tino Martinez by Kenny Rosenthal reminds me again that I planned years ago to write a book called “Moneyball.” Obviously it was going to be nothing at all like Michael Lewis’ classic. The idea was to write about the late 1990s Kansas City Royals and their, um, rather awkward efforts to…

    Derek Jeter came back yesterday, hit a home run and took major part in the Yankees win. The crowd goes wild and the media goes wilder. Such is the way of the Jeter World. I am usually the first person to mock overly-effusive examples of “Jeter-is-a-magical-winning-unicorn!” prose, the likes of which always comes out when…

  18. Would the Yankees sue A-Rod for “damaging the Yankees brand?”

    The idea of voiding player contracts in retaliation for PED suspensions is a non-starter at present, as the Collective Bargaining Agreement specifies that the Joint Drug Agreement constitutes the sole basis of punishment for PED use.  We talked a lot recently about why changing the CBA/JDA to include contract voiding is undesirable. In just the…

    Braves 5, Cardinals 2: That was somewhat unexpected. A less-than-dominant Braves team sweeps the best team in the National League. The key was Kris Medlen allowing two runs on eight hits. The key all series was good starting pitching from the Braves. So of course the big talking point everyone has is how Jason Heyward…

    Derek Jeter lasted just one game when he returned from ankle surgery on July 11. We’ll see if his 39-year-old body cooperates a little more this time. According to Joel Sherman of the New York Post, the veteran shortstop has been activated from the 15-day disabled list and is batting second in the Yankees’ series…
