    From Erik Boland of Newsday comes word that Yankees infielder Eduardo Nunez has suffered a setback with his rib cage injury and will be on the disabled list for much longer than initially expected. Yankees manager Joe Girardi told Boland that Nunez tried to “amp it up” during a round of batting practice on Saturday…

    Reid Brignac

    CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman reports that the Yankees have acquired infielder Reid Brignac from the Rockies. Colorado will receive cash considerations in return. Brignac was designated for assignment by the Rockies on Thursday after he batted .250/.294/.375 with one home run, six RBI and a .669 OPS in 53 plate appearances this season. Originally drafted…

    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,…

    As first reported by Andy McCullough of the Newark Star-Ledger, the Yankees have placed utilityman Eduardo Nunez on the 15-day disabled list with a rib cage injury. Alberto Gonzalez has been called up from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to fill the vacant roster spot and Mark Teixeira was shifted to the 60-day disabled list as a procedural…

  5. R.A. Dickey says the Yankees were stalling yesterday

    Apr 29, 2013, 9:34 AM EST

    Toronto Blue Jays starting pitcher R.A. Dickey looks towards the New York Yankees dugout after Yankees Lyle Overbay hit a go ahead two-run home run during the seventh inning of their MLB American League baseball game at Yankee Stadium in New York

    Yesterday R.A. Dickey gave up a homer to Lyle Overbay in the seventh inning. The next batter, Eduardo Nunez, came up to bat, but before he did he called time, had the trainer come out and help him get something out of his eye.  At least that’s what appeared to happen. Dickey says it was…

    UPDATE: General manager Brian Cashman announced that a CT scan revealed a “small crack” near Jeter’s previous injury and the Yankees expect him to miss the entire first half. As of now he won’t need an additional surgery, but according to Cashman there is no timetable for Jeter’s return. Unless they start shopping for a…

    New York Yankees' Nunez drops his bat after being hit by a pitch against the Baltimore Orioles during their MLB American League game in New York

    Yankees shortstop Eduardo Nunez, filling in for the injured Derek Jeter, was hit on the right wrist by Orioles starter Miguel Gonzalez. Nunez stayed in the game initially to run the bases, but was eventually lifted to have his wrist examined. MLB.com’s Britt Ghiroli reports that x-rays on the wrist were negative, which is certainly…

  8. Prince Fielder powers Tigers past Yankees

    Apr 5, 2013, 4:57 PM EST

    Prince Fielder, Miguel Cabrera

    Prince Fielder saw to it that the Tigers didn’t need a closer today. Fielder hit a three-run homer off Boone Logan in the fifth to give the Tigers the lead and added a two-run blast for insurance in the seventh Friday as the Tigers beat the Yankees 8-3. Fielder’s first homer came immediately after Yankees…

    Eduardo Nunez, who’s filling in for the injured Derek Jeter as the Yankees’ shortstop, just left today’s game after being hit on the right shoulder/chest by a Doug Fister pitch. Nunez was on the ground in what appeared to be tremendous pain for several minutes before being helped off the field. Jayson Nix replaced him,…

  10. Andy Pettitte and Mariano Rivera help lead Yankees to first win of season

    Apr 4, 2013, 10:01 PM EST

    Andy Pettitte

    It felt like old times tonight in the Bronx, as Andy Pettitte tossed eight innings of one-ball and Mariano Rivera notched the save as the Yankees topped the Red Sox 4-2 for the team’s first victory of the 2013 season. Pettitte was in control for most of the night, scattering eight hits while striking out…

  11. Brian Cashman on Derek Jeter: “We’re just trying to back off and eliminate the pain”

    Derel Jeter

    By backdating his season-opening stint on the disabled list Derek Jeter is eligible to play for the Yankees on April 6, but it sounds like that has little chance of happening. Jeter last played in a minor-league game Saturday, serving as a designated hitter, and general manager Brian Cashman told Bryan Hoch of MLB.com that…

  12. Derek Jeter is expected to be sidelined until April 6

    Derek Jeter can be ruled out for Opening Day. Yankees general manager Brian Cashman told MLB.com’s Bryan Hoch on Sunday that the veteran shortstop woke up with soreness in his surgically-repaired ankle after DHing in a minor league game Saturday. Jeter has been shut down for the next two days and is all but certain…

  13. Derek Jeter could DH on Opening Day

    New York Yankees shortstop Jeter sets up for a pitch during a MLB spring training baseball game against the Philadelphia Phillies in Tampa, Florida

    Mark Feinsand says: Joe Girardi said Derek Jeter could be the Opening Day DH, but he’s not ruling out the idea of Jeter playing shortstop that day, either. — Mark Feinsand (@FeinsandNYDN) March 19, 2013   Worth watching, as it may suggest that Jeter’s ankle is going to need a lot of rest this year.…

  14. Derrek Lee turns down Yankees, will stay retired

    Mar 14, 2013, 8:35 PM EST

    Derrek Lee

    In the wake of Mark Teixeira‘s right wrist injury, the Yankees contacted Derrek Lee to see if he would be interested in coming out of retirement to fill in at first base. However, they are going to have to go back to the drawing board. Derrek Lee has decided to stay retired, according to source.…

  15. Yankees don’t view Eduardo Nunez as option to replace Curtis Granderson

    Feb 27, 2013, 8:53 AM EST

    eduardo-nunez-yankees

    Brian Cashman shot down any chance of the Yankees signing Johnny Damon to replace the injured Curtis Granderson and the general manager also ruled out Eduardo Nunez as an option to play left field, saying: “I don’t think he profiles as an outfielder with the bat.” That may surprise some Yankee fans because the knock…

  16. Alfonso Soriano as a Granderson replacement seems far-fetched

    Feb 24, 2013, 6:30 PM EST

    Curtis Granderson

    The silver lining about a 10-week injury to Curtis Granderson: Opening Day is still more than a month away. Losing Granderson’s power is far from an ideal way for the Yankees to start the spring, but it’s hardly a season-wrecker either. And while there might be some concern over whether Granderson will regain his power…

  17. Yankees interested in free agent infielder Jeff Keppinger

    Jeff Keppinger AP

    According to Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com, the Yankees have renewed their “longstanding interest” in free agent infielder Jeff Keppinger. The Yankees have Eduardo Nunez and Jayson Nix on their roster, but they are currently seeking a veteran infielder who can play third base and fill in at shortstop with Derek Jeter coming off ankle surgery.…

    Max Scherzer was pulled for left-hander Drew Smyly with two on and two outs in the top of the sixth inning, so Joe Girardi called on Alex Rodriguez to pinch-hit for Raul Ibanez. However, there was no redemption to be found. Rodriguez hit a routine fly ball to center field to strand two runners and…

  20. UPDATE: Tigers up 6-0 in the bottom of the fourth — Sabathia knocked out of the game

    CC Sabathia

    UPDATE: Make it 6-0. Delmon Young singled and Johnny Peralta homered. Then Andy Dirks doubled and Joe Girardi came and got Sabathia.  There are still many innings to play here, but, it looks the Tigers are World Series bound. 5:41 PM: Make it 4-0: Miguel Cabrera just hit a two-run shot in the bottom of…

  23. Decision to pull Verlander pays off for Jim Leyland

    Jim Leyland, Justin Verlander

    Sending Justin Verlander back out to pitch the ninth against the Yankees with a 2-0 lead in Tuesday’s Game 3 was pretty much a no-brainer. It’s not like manager Jim Leyland was going to turn to Jose Valverde. 115 pitches is a pretty high total to be starting an inning with, but Verlander has been…
