    Brent Lillibridge

    The Yankees have acquired utilityman Brent Lillibridge from the Cubs for cash considerations or a player to be named later, per the Cubs’ official Twitter. In 24 plate appearances, the 29-year-old Lillibridge was hitting — brace yourself — .042/.042/.042. In Iowa with the Cubs’ Triple-A affiliate, where he spent most of his time, Lillibridge hit…

    Jun 18, 2013, 4:16 PM EDT

    New York Yankees' Kevin Youkilis stretches during MLB spring training workouts in Tampa, Florida

    The injury hits just keep on coming for the Yankees, who announced that Kevin Youkilis needs surgery to repair a herniated disc and will be out for 10-12 weeks. That puts Youkilis’ season in jeopardy, because 10 weeks would get him into September and any setbacks would leave him running out of time. Youkilis hit…

    Alex Rodriguez moved his rehab from New York to the Yankees’ spring training complex in Tampa, Florida last month and has slowly been introducing different baseball-related activities into his workout plan.

    Yankees starting pitcher Pettitte puts his face into his glove as he comes off the field after giving up a run in the fourth inning against the Angels in an MLB baseball game in Anaheim

    Brian Costa of the Wall Street Journal has some interesting figures in his latest column about the Yankees: Through Wednesday, the average ratings for Yankee games on the YES Network were down 38% compared to the same period last season, according to Nielsen figures. The drop is even more remarkable when you consider that last…

    Good news for the Yankees this evening.

    Derek Jeter recently resumed playing catch, but he has yet to be cleared to do any other baseball activities as he waits for the crack in his surgically-repaired left ankle to heal. That could change soon. According to Bryan Hoch of, Jeter said today that he will fly to North Carolina next week to…

  9. What does Alex Rodriguez’s future have in store?

    Alex Rodriguez Reuters

    Let’s get one thing out of the way at the outset: whatever results from the Biogenesis news, be it a lengthy suspension or otherwise, this will not “forever taint Alex Rodriguez‘s legacy” or whatever words anyone chooses to author to that melodramatic effect. Alex Rodriguez’s legacy was toast years ago, rightly or wrongly. A-Rod was…

    And I want to apologize in advance for Kay talking about Derek Jeter “having a catch.” Only in strange enclaves of the east coast do people “have a catch.” Everyone else in the world “plays catch.” Thank you.

    From Andy McCullough of the Newark Star-Ledger: NEW YORK – Derek Jeter emerged from the Yankees dugout around 4:45 p.m. on Wednesday, intent on completing his first on-field activity since an April examination revealed a second fracture in his left ankle. While his teammates took batting practice, Jeter played catch. “I thought I would be…

    OK, so there hasn’t been any actual All-Star ballot results released yet. That doesn’t mean I can’t do my fun little exercise here. What follows is my best guess at the All-Star Game starting lineups. National League CF Andrew McCutchen 2B Brandon Phillips 1B Joey Votto LF Justin Upton RF Bryce Harper 3B David Wright…

    Fifteen years ago today David Wells threw a perfect game against the Twins at Yankee Stadium. And then just to add to the drama Wells claimed afterward that he was “half-drunk” for the day game after partying with the cast of Saturday Night Live the night before. Minnesota’s starter that day was LaTroy Hawkins, who’s…

  17. Great Moments in Core Four love

    The Core Four: Derek Jeter. Mariano Rivera. Jorge Posada. And, um, maybe Clay Bellinger? I forget. Not important. What is important is that for years Yankees writers have always made sure to protect the necks of those guys, particularly Jeter and Rivera. Woe be unto anyone who is insufficiently reverent of them and woe, woe,…

    Every now and again — well, let’s face it, pretty much every day now — I get another email telling me that Vernon Wells — Vernon Bleepin’ Wells — just got another two hits with another homer with another three RBIs and so on. The emails are from Michael Schur, Parks and Recreation executive producer,…

  19. Should Derek Jeter think about retiring?

    May 10, 2013, 8:25 PM EDT

    New York Yankees infielder Jeter walks to the dugout after stretching during a workout at the team's MLB spring training complex at George M. Steinbrenner Field in Tampa, Florida.

    No, Derek Jeter should not think about retiring. Just so we’re clear on that. Jason Keidel, though, argues that the Yankee shortstop is at the end of the line: Father Time is finally throwing Jeter some serious chin music, snapping his ankle in October, and then taunting him back to practice before chipping it again.…

    Howard Bryant’s latest ESPN column considers Derek Jeter. It starts thusly: THE MAGIC OF baseball will always live in the storytelling Pretty lucky for Bryant, given that he’s a storyteller! Anyway: — the grandeur of Ruth, the Midwestern identification with Musial, the unbreakable Robinson and the complex defiance and moral ambiguity of Bonds. It’s what gives…

    That’s what someone shouted from their car at Alex Rodriguez as he left the Yankees training complex yesterday as he finished his first day of baseball activities following hip surgery.

    Derek Jeter met with the media a few minutes ago. No new news was broken. This was mostly Jeter reminding everyone that, yes, he’s still alive. Among his comments, which I’m getting from various Yankees beat writers Twitter feeds: Jeter said recovering from his broken ankle has been a “difficult” and “frustrating” process that “unfortunately…

  23. Derek Jeter to hold a press conference today. Uh oh.

    New York Yankees infielder Jeter walks to the dugout after stretching during a workout at the team's MLB spring training complex at George M. Steinbrenner Field in Tampa, Florida.

    The Yankees and Derek Jeter are holding a press conference this afternoon.  They have not said what the press conference is specifically about, but I’m struggling how it can be good news for the injured Jeter. Hopefully it’s just Jeter wanting to make himself available to the media after so much time away. To talk…
