    From Andy McCullough of the Newark Star-Ledger: The holding pattern with Derek Jeter, as Yankees manager Joe Girardi phrased it, entered its third day on Tuesday, without a resolution in sight. Once again, Jeter did not engage in pre-game drills due to his cranky left ankle. Once again, team officials dismissed the suggestion he could…

  2. Thoughts on Willie Mays stumbling around the outfield

    Sep 10, 2013, 4:32 PM EDT

    Willie Mays

    Mike Vaccaro has a column up today talking about Derek Jeter in twilight and he notes that the touchstone reference for an aging athlete is “Willie Mays falling down in the outfield” or “Willie Mays stumbling in the outfield” (as I’ve often heard it) during his final season with the New York Mets. If you…

    Derek Jeter was removed from Saturday’s loss to the Red Sox with soreness in his surgically-repaired left ankle. A CT scan came back negative, but the veteran shortstop is going to be out for a little while. According to Joel Sherman of the New York Post, Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Sunday morning that Jeter’s…

    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…

  5. Derek Jeter exits with soreness near ankle

    Sep 7, 2013, 4:36 PM EDT

    Derek Jeter

    When Derek Jeter was pulled for a pinch-runner in the sixth inning Saturday, the hope was the Yankees were just preserving him in a 12-6 game. However, FOXSports.com’s Ken Rosenthal reported three innings later that Jeter was taken out due to soreness around the ankle he broke in the postseason last year. Jeter singled in…

  6. What are the Yankees going to do about Derek Jeter?

    Sep 6, 2013, 2:25 PM EDT

    Derek Jeter, Mike Napoli

    It was easy to watch Thursday night’s Red Sox-Yankees tilt and come to the conclusion that Derek Jeter is done. Hobbling around on one leg at shortstop, he nearly got himself seriously injured again, courtesy of a cheap takeout slide from Mike Napoli. Any other major league shortstop would have been there and gone already…

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

    Sep 3, 2013, 6:25 AM EDT

    Minnesota Twins v Houston Astros

    Twins 10, Astros 6: Rookie and independent league veteran Chris Colabello homered twice including a grand slam to break a 6-6 tie in the ninth. Entering Sunday he was on an 0 for 23 skid and now here he is having the best day of his life. Probably the best day he’ll ever have at a ballpark.…

    Eduardo Nunez left Tuesday’s game after injuring his right knee and had to be scratched from the lineup Wednesday, but fortunately for the Yankees, he won’t have to miss significant time. According to Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News, an MRI on Nunez’s knee came back negative earlier today. He’s considered day-to-day. Nunez…

  9. An illustrated analysis of Derek Jeter’s defense

    Jeter error

    I link this Ben Lindbergh piece at Grantland not to mock Derek Jeter‘s defense, but because the approach here — with heavy use of Gifs and infographics — is a really cool way to look at defense in general. As Lindbergh puts it, it meshes the old fashioned eye-test — which usually helps Jeter’s case…

  10. Derek Jeter goes 0-for-3 with a walk in return from disabled list

    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…

Today’s Yankees lineup, featuring the return of No. 2: pic.twitter.com/GWmnfuTR04 — Mark Feinsand (@FeinsandNYDN) August 26, 2013   It’ll be interesting to see if he runs hard or if he takes a page from Robinson Cano‘s book and doesn’t. And if he doesn’t, I wonder if he gets any…

    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…

    The Yankees could activate shortstop Derek Jeter from the 15-day disabled list on Monday, reports MLB.com’s Bryan Hoch. The 39-year-old has been on the disabled list since August 3 with a strained right groin, his third stint on the DL this year already.

  14. Ichiro Suzuki, Warren Moon and amazing stories

    Aug 22, 2013, 1:16 PM EDT

    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…

  17. Former major leaguer Chad Curtis’ criminal sexual conduct trial is underway

    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. The charges came to light…

    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…

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

    Aug 5, 2013, 5:58 PM EDT

    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…

  21. 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…
