Eduardo Nunez

  1. Jayson Nix will take over as the Yankees’ shortstop

    There was some thought after Derek Jeter was diagnosed with a fractured left ankle late Saturday night that the Yankees might try Alex Rodriguez at shortstop at some point during the remainder of this 2012 postseason. But that will not be happening. Yankees manager Joe Girardi made it clear to reporters in his postgame press…

  2. It’s just not the postseason without Derek Jeter

    Oct 14, 2012, 1:49 AM EDT

    Derek Jeter

    The Yankees were already going it without Mariano Rivera this month, a strange sight to everyone who has followed baseball since the mid-1990s. But then Rivera was only out there for one or two innings per night. Derek Jeter was the immovable object. The Yankees have played in 158 postseason games since 1996, and Jeter…

  3. Derek Jeter fractures ankle, out for postseason

    Oct 14, 2012, 12:53 AM EDT

    New York Yankees shortstop Jeter screams as he injures himself fielding a ball hit by  Detroit Tigers' Peralta during the 12th inning of Game 1 of their MLB ALCS playoff baseball series in New York

    Derek Jeter suffered a fractured left ankle diving for a Jhonny Peralta grounder in the 12th inning of Saturday’s loss to the Tigers and will miss the rest of the postseason. The Yankees were down 5-4 when Jeter ranged to his left in order to make a play. He grabbed the ball but tumbled down…

    The Yankees just announced their roster for the ALCS against the Tigers. And yes, Alex Rodriguez is on it. According to Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News, infielder Eduardo Nunez has been left off the roster while right-hander Cody Eppley has been added. The Yankees had 11 pitchers and 14 position players for…

  6. Joe Girardi moves Alex Rodriguez to DH, but leaves him as No. 3 hitter

    Oct 10, 2012, 3:35 PM EDT

    Alex Rodriguez

    Joe Girardi made a change with Alex Rodriguez, but it isn’t the one many Yankees fans (and at least one HardballTalk writer) have been clamoring for. The manager has Rodriguez starting at designated hitter tonight rather than his usual third base, but Rodriguez remains the No. 3 hitter. Eric Chavez is starting at third base…

  7. Derek Jeter drives in run to cut into Orioles lead

    UPDATE: The Orioles got out of it. Darren O’Day struck out Alex Rodriguez swinging for the second out before Buck Showalter made another change, this time bringing in Brian Matusz. The southpaw issued an intentional walk to Robinson Cano before getting Nick Swisher to fly out to left field to end the inning. The Orioles…

    Another day, another rain delay. The start of Game 2 of the ALDS between the Yankees and Orioles is being delayed due to rain in the Baltimore area. It shouldn’t be as long as what we had to sit through last night, though. According to Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com, first pitch is expected to be…

    Raul Ibanez, Derek Norris

    With the Orioles already having dispatched the Red Sox in 12, the AL East appeared on the verge of being knotted at the top again. However, the Yankees overcame a 9-5 deficit in the 13th and beat the A’s 10-9 in 14 innings Saturday. Baltimore improved to 4-0 in extra-inning games at Fenway Park this…

  11. 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…

  12. Brett Gardner’s rehab assignment pushed back due to rainout

    May 7, 2012, 7:11 PM EDT

    gardner-110621

    UPDATE: Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News reports that Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre was rained out tonight, so Gardner won’t begin his rehab assignment until tomorrow. Gardner is expected to play two rehab games, so he won’t rejoin the Yankees until Thursday at the earliest. 12:48 PM: Brett Gardner wasn’t ready to come off the…

  13. Yankees place Eric Chavez on seven-day disabled list for concussion, call up Jayson Nix

    May 3, 2012, 5:10 PM EDT

    Eric Chavez, Joe Girardi

    Eric Chavez suffered whiplash diving for a ball defensively last night, leaving the game with a possible concussion, and the Yankees have now placed him on the seven-day disabled list designed specifically for concussions. Chavez initially remained in the game and came to the plate in the next half-inning, but had to leave in the…

  14. Brett Gardner “doubtful” to return from disabled list when eligible Thursday

    May 2, 2012, 10:47 AM EDT

    Brett Gardner is eligible to come off the disabled list Thursday after missing two weeks with a strained elbow, but manager Joe Girardi said yesterday that the left fielder is “doubtful” to be ready by then. Marc Carig of the Newark Star Ledger reports that the Yankees will likely ask Gardner to make at least…

  15. Nick Swisher out of Yankees lineup with hamstring injury

    Apr 30, 2012, 4:16 PM EDT

    swisher-101021

    Nick Swisher, who left yesterday’s game with a hamstring injury, is out of the Yankees’ lineup for tonight’s matchup with the Orioles. In his place the Yankees are starting utility infielder Eduardo Nunez in left field, with Raul Ibanez shifting from left field to right field. Nunez has been playing professional baseball since 2006 and…

  16. 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…

  17. 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…

  18. Report: Yankees adding Raul Ibanez, Eric Chavez to mix

    Feb 17, 2012, 6:08 PM EDT

    Raul Ibanez, Yadier Molina

    CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman indicates that the Yankees have agreements with left-handed hitters Raul Ibanez and Eric Chavez that will be finalized after the A.J. Burnett deal is approved by the league. The Yankees looked at picking up a left-handed option at DH in a Burnett trade and reportedly had a deal done for Bobby…

  19. Report: Yankees and Hiroyuki Nakajima “far apart” in negotiations

    According to Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com, the Yankees and Japanese infielder Hiroyuki Nakajima are said to be “far apart” in negotiations. The Yankees bid $2 million to secure an exclusive 30-day negotiating window with the 29-year-old earlier this month. Nakajima doesn’t figure to be more than a second utility infielder behind Eduardo Nunez even if he does sign,…

  20. Don’t count on Eduardo Nunez as Derek Jeter’s successor

    Nov 1, 2010, 3:18 PM EDT

    eduardo-nunez-yankees

    Bill Madden of the New York Daily News wrote a column over the weekend hyping 23-year-old prospect Eduardo Nunez as the Yankees’ eventual successor to Derek Jeter at shortstop. Madden frames it as if the Mariners asking for Nunez held up the Cliff Lee trade. That could be technically true in that at some point…
