  1. Orioles release Miguel Tejada from Triple-A at his request

    Jun 25, 2012, 5:41 PM EDT

    miguel tejada a's

    According to Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun the Orioles have released Miguel Tejada from their Triple-A team at the former MVP’s request. Tejada had been playing third base for Norfolk since mid-May, but hit just .259 with zero homers and a .296 slugging percentage in 36 games. Over the weekend Norfolk also released Jamie…

  2. The final AL All-Star balloting update before the teams are set

    Jun 25, 2012, 2:49 PM EDT

    There’s still time to vote, but if it ended now, the AL All-Star team would look like so. The only change to a starter over last week’s results: Robinson Cano taking over first place at second base from Ian Kinsler. Downballot, we see A-Rod passing Evan Longoria for third place at third base, a flip-flop…

  3. Settling the Score: Friday’s results

    Frank Francisco Getty

    Fresh off referring to the Yankees as chickens in the New York Post, Frank Francisco was called on to close out Friday’s game. It wasn’t pretty and he didn’t strike out the side like he promised, but he was able to escape a jam to notch his 18th save as the Mets won the first…

  4. Mets closer Frank Francisco on the Yankees: “I can’t wait to face those chickens”

    Jun 22, 2012, 10:10 AM EDT

    New York Mets Photo Day

    I’m not sure what could possibly compel a struggling second-rate closer with a 5.14 ERA to talk trash publicly against the Yankees, but Mets right-hander Frank Francisco took the media bait and did just that. With this weekend’s Subway Series starting at Citi Field tonight, Francisco was asked for his thoughts about facing the Yankees…

  5. Yankees present Chipper Jones with third base

    Jun 20, 2012, 1:38 PM EDT

    Chipper Jones, Derek Jeter

    Because Alex Rodriguez isn’t doing much with it anyway. In a pregame ceremony honoring the retiring future Hall of Famer, Derek Jeter and Andruw Jones presented Chipper Jones with the third base bag used at Yankee Stadium in last night’s game. Of course, Chipper and Andruw were teammates in Atlanta for 12 years. Not everyone…

  6. AL All-Star balloting update: Jose Bautista joins the leaders

    Jun 18, 2012, 6:18 PM EDT

    Jose Bautista

    The latest American League ballot totals are in and the red-hot Jose Bautista has moved into third place in the outfielder voting, with Nelson Cruz dropping out of the lineup to fifth place. Bautista had the AL’s highest vote total last year, but his slow start guarantees he won’t duplicate that feat this year. Instead, it looks…

  7. Bryce Harper does something Derek Jeter never did

    Jun 16, 2012, 6:06 PM EDT

    Bryce Harper

    But only after Derek Jeter almost did it himself. Bryce Harper went 0-for-7 with five strikeouts Saturday as the Nationals lost to the Yankees 5-3 in 14 innings. With two outs and the tying run on base in the 14th, Harper grounded out to end the game, his worst to date as a major leaguer.…

  8. Oh, is it time for Bryce Harper-to-the-Yankees speculation already?

    Jun 15, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    Nationals Harper looks at his home run against the Blue Jays during the third inning of their MLB Interleague baseball game in Toronto

    You knew this was coming eventually. And really, I ain’t even mad. Because this is so obviously calculated to troll people as opposed to being that classic “the Yankees must obtain every good player ever” kind of chatter that annoys us so that this works better as parody than it does as any sort of…

  9. AL All-Star voting updates

    Jun 11, 2012, 4:00 PM EDT

    All Star Game Logo

    The league just announced the latest in the All-Star Game voting for the American League. Here’s where it stands. The only particularly close race right now is for the third outfield slot, which is a three-way deal between Nelson Cruz, Jose Bautista and Adam Jones. Catcher Mike Napoli: 1,640,160 Joe Mauer: 912,997 First Base Prince…

  10. The Texas Rangers are dominating early All-Star balloting

    All Star Game Logo

    The first vote-tallies have been released from the All-Star Game. Gentlemen, start your outrage! Texas Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton and Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp are Major League Baseball’s top overall vote-getters in the first balloting figures for the 83rd All-Star Game … Hamilton, a four-time A.L. All-Star, has received 2,587,991 votes as he attempts to make his fifth consecutive…

  11. First-round winners and losers from the MLB draft

    Jun 4, 2012, 11:33 PM EDT

    Marcus Stroman

    Sure, one generally has to wait four or five years to really sit back and analyze how a draft turned out. But why let that stop us from picking some winners and losers from Monday evening’s first round. Winners Dodgers – Corey Seager will likely prove to be a tough sign, but the high school…

  12. Derek Jeter passes George Brett on hits list

    May 27, 2012, 4:23 PM EDT

    Derek Jeter

    Derek Jeter is now in sole possession of 14th place on the all-time hits list after singling off Tom Milone to open Sunday’s game against the A’s. It was Jeter’s 3,155th career hit. He’s passed Dave Winfield, Tony Gwynn, Robin Yount, Paul Waner and now Brett since the season began. Next up on the list…

  13. Derek Jeter is now 17th on all-time hit list, could be as high as 11th by end of season

    May 14, 2012, 12:48 PM EDT

    New York Yankees Derek Jeter hits single against the Oakland Athletics in New York

    Derek Jeter went 1-for-4 with a single yesterday and in doing so surpassed Tony Gwynn on the all-time hit list, moving into a tie with Robin Yount for 17th place with 3,142 hits. Next up is Paul Waner with 3,152, followed by George Brett with 3,154 and Cal Ripken Jr. with 3,184. If healthy Jeter…

  14. Yankees activate Eric Chavez from DL, send Eduardo Nunez to minors

    May 11, 2012, 4:46 PM EDT

    eduardo-nunez-yankees

    Eduardo Nunez has struggled defensively at every position he’s tried for the Yankees, which recently includes starts in left field for the first time in his professional career. That has limited his playing time despite a decent .728 OPS and today the Yankees decided he’d be better off starting regularly at Triple-A, demoting him to…

  15. Yankees, Cardinals getting most production from top of the order

    Apr 24, 2012, 6:52 PM EDT

    Derek Jeter

    Here’s a look at the production all 30 teams are getting from their top two hitters to date, ranked by OPS. Yankees – 1.074 Cardinals – .931 Rangers – .851 Mets – .835 Rays – .823 Red Sox – .823 Astros – .789 Braves – .768 Nationals – .751 Giants – .745 Cubs – .738…

  16. And That Happened: Monday’s scores and highlights

    Apr 24, 2012, 6:00 AM EDT

    New York Yankees v Texas Rangers

    Yankees 7, Rangers 4: The platonic ideal of a late-dynasty Yankees game: Four hits for Jeter, homer for A-Rod, a CC Sabathia win and a Mariano Rivera save.  In other news, I sorta feel like I wanna be the guy who starts writing the breathless “can Derek Jeter hit .400?” articles. Maybe I’ll do one…

  17. You won’t believe who are DHing for baseball’s two best offenses

    Apr 23, 2012, 6:22 PM EDT

    Eduardo Nunez

    The Yankees and Rangers, No. 1 and No. 2 respectively in runs per game so far this season, will meet for the first time this season tonight. So, of course, they’ve both brought out the big guns, right? Well, certainly, the top six for each lineup is incredibly strong. The designated hitters won’t be found…

  18. Maybe the Red Sox really should fire Bobby Valentine

    Apr 21, 2012, 7:43 PM EDT

    Bobby Valentine, Jarrod Saltalamacchia

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but wasn’t the whole point to hiring Bobby Valentine is that he’s a cut above most as a tactical manager? He’s not in the Boston dugout because he’s a great manager of people. Nor does he have a rep as some sort of master disciplinarian who manages to get the…

  19. Clay Buchholz gives up five homers in loss to Yankees

    Apr 20, 2012, 6:35 PM EDT

    Clay Buchholz, Eric Chavez

    Two pitchers have given up five homers in a game this season. Both have been Red Sox. Clay Buchholz joined Josh Beckett in the exclusive club Friday, surrendering five solo homers in a 6-2 loss to the Yankees on the 100th anniversary of Fenway Park’s opening. On the plus side, Buchholz’s start was pretty good for…

  21. Mark Teixeira scratched with flu-like symptoms

    Apr 17, 2012, 6:19 PM EDT

    Mark Teixeira

    Mark Teixeira probably didn’t want to face Francisco Liriano tonight anyway. The Yankees scratched their first baseman about two hours before Tuesday’s game against the Twins was due to start. The reason was the old standby: flu-like symptoms. Teixeira is 3-for-20 with one homer and 10 strikeouts lifetime against Liriano, and he’s not off to…

  22. Derek Jeter to get an honorary doctorate from Siena

    Apr 16, 2012, 5:44 PM EDT

    Derek Jeter

    Oh the benches were stained with tears and perspiration, the birdies were flying from tree to tree. There was little to say, there was no conversation, as I stepped to the stage to pick up my degree: New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter will receive an honorary doctorate from Siena during its May 13 commencement. Siena…

  23. And now, the top 20 jerseys sold

    Apr 5, 2012, 2:00 PM EDT

    St. Louis Cardinals' Freese watches his game winning home run with Texas Rangers relief pitcher Lowe during the 11th inning in Game 6 of MLB's World Series baseball championship in St. Louis

    MLB and the MLBPA just released the list of the top 20 jerseys sold in the past year. The list contains the usual gang you’d expect. Except I was somewhat surprised at David Freese at number 20, but I guess that World Series homer was quite the moment for Cards fans. Anyway: 1.    Derek Jeter, New…

  24. The Marlins’ new ballpark is a hitter’s haven

    Apr 1, 2012, 6:10 PM EDT

    Marlins Ballpark from the fishies' perspective

    OK, so maybe it’s a small sample size, but the Yankees topped the Marlins 10-8 in the first major league game played at Marlins Ballpark on Sunday. With the roof closed on an 85-degree day, Derek Jeter lined the very first pitch of the game from Ricky Nolasco into right field for a double, setting…

  25. Derek Jeter scratched with a tender calf

    Mar 16, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    New York Yankees shortstop Jeter stretches during workouts before a spring training baseball game against the Toronto Blue Jays in Dunedin

    There are so many guys who cover the Yankees that when some bit of Yankees news is released, my Twitter feed fills up with multiple identical tweets. This morning’s version: “Derek Jeter has a tender calf.” That’s what she said. Anyway, Cap’n Jetes is out of the game today and likely will sit through the…
