  5. Is the Yankees third base job Kelly Johnson’s to lose?

    Jan 13, 2014, 10:30 AM EDT

    Miami Marlins  v Tampa Bay Rays

    Could be. He’s certainly a strong candidate, as Bryan Hoch of MLB.com explains in his latest. Hoch notes that Johnson didn’t play third base in the bigs until last year, but he did play a little in the minors — and a lot of shortstop in the minors — so it’s not totally foreign ground. And,…

    Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com reports that the Yankees are contemplating Mark Reynolds, Michael Young and Brian Roberts as they seek to add to their infield.  Reynolds would be a re-signing after finishing last season with the Bombers. He hit .236/.300/.455 with six homers in 36 games with the Yankees and .220/.306/.393 with 21 homers in…

    Yankees starter Andy Pettitte shut down the Astros tonight in his final start of his career.

    Bothered by a sore left hamstring, Alex Rodriguez will make his fourth straight start out of the DH spot this afternoon against the Red Sox. He’s nowhere close to 100 percent at the moment, as he had the chance to score the go-ahead run last night on a double by Robinson Cano, but had to…

    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…

  10. 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…

  11. 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…

    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…

    New York Yankees first baseman Mark Reynolds makes a sliding catch for the out against the Tampa Bay Rays during the first inning of their American League MLB baseball game in St. Petersburg, Florida

    With Robinson Cano day-to-day after being hit by a pitch, Eduardo Nunez was supposed to play second base. Except, Eduardo Nunez was scratched just a minute ago so … Nunez can’t go. Mark Reynolds will play second. Let’s get weird. — Andy McCullough (@McCulloughSL) August 28, 2013   Dear Lord, this is going to be…

  14. Yankees win, A-Rod disappoints in home debut

    Aug 10, 2013, 12:05 AM EDT

    Detroit Tigers v New York Yankees

    Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez went 0-for-4 in his season debut at Yankee Stadium and closer Mariano Rivera blew his second save in a row, but the Yankees won anyway thanks to a Brett Gardner walk-off single with the bases loaded in the bottom of the 11th. In the bottom of the first, Rodriguez strode…

    Yankee's Rodriguez hits a single while playing the White Sox in the second inning of their MLB American League baseball game in Chicago

    Let the spectacle begin. Despite being handed a 211-game suspension from MLB for his alleged connections to Biogenesis, Alex Rodriguez is making his season debut tonight against the White Sox. In his first game in the majors since January hip surgery, he’s batting cleanup and playing third base. And you can count on HBT to…

  16. 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…

  17. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    Jul 24, 2013, 7:07 AM EDT

    Cleveland Indians v Seattle Mariners

    Mariners 4, Indians 3: The M’s just keep on winning. That’s eight in a row, with this one ending interestingly. The Indians had runners on the corners with no one out in the ninth. Then Drew Stubbs got caught in a rundown he probably shouldn’t have gotten caught in between third and home, ending the…

    After missing the first 90 games of the season Derek Jeter returned from a broken ankle last Thursday, only to injure his quadriceps midway through his first game back.

    Houston Astros v New York Yankees

    Derek Jeter has yet to play this season, his shortstop fill-in Eduardo Nunez is on the disabled list with an oblique injury, and now the fill-in’s fill-in, Jayson Nix, is on the DL with a hamstring strain. Nix has been the Yankees’ primary shortstop since mid-May, but has hit just .236 with two homers and…

    Screen Shot 2013-06-26 at 9.41.35 AM

    Sure, the big news about Alex Rodriguez joining Twitter this week is that he almost immediately managed to piss off Yankees general manager Brian Cashman, but as a Twitter addict I’m more interested in who A-Rod has chosen to follow. So far he’s followed 41 accounts, including lots of Yankees-related stuff like the Yankees’ official…

    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…

    Yankees third baseman Kevin Youkilis played in all 18 innings of yesterday’s affair with the Oakland Athletics, then woke up this morning with numbness in his foot.
