7/10/14: The All-Star Game is next week and the Yankees could use a few days off to regroup. True, imported pitcher Masahiro Tanaka has been outstanding in his first MLB season and became the first pitcher in the Majors to reach 12 wins last week. But the Yankees' pitching as a whole has been subpar. The news got a bit worse last week when the team announced that staff ace CC Sabathia is likely finished for the season. He had a setback in his rehab and it looks like the team will shut him down for the year. It also means that the Yankees could get active in the trade market as they look to catch Baltimore and Toronto.
7/3/14: The St. Louis Cardinals found a gem in Carlos Beltran two and a half years ago as they were getting over losing Albert Pujols to free agency. Beltran gave the Cardinals two high quality seasons, but the Redbirds figured he would be too expensive (and old) to re-up for another two years. The Yankees signed him and the Cardinals may have been right. Beltran has been injured for much of the year and has only been used as a DH since returning from the DL. Reportedly, Beltran has a lingering elbow injury that limits his throwing. The Yankees can afford the financial hit, but need Beltran to be at his best if they are going to win the AL East.
6/26/14: Well, at least there is one less problem for the Yankees to worry about as Alex Rodriguez has dropped his lawsuit against the team doctor. A-Rod had sued for medical malpractice, claiming a mis-diagnosis on his left hip that made him ineffective in the 2012 playoffs and unable to play for half of 2013. A-Rod's lawyer claims that he does not want any legal distractions as he gets himself back into playing shape for next season. Or it could be (and this is pure speculation) that A-Rod did not have a case and was simply trying to put any accountability somewhere else. In any case, there is no case. Case closed.
6/19/14: The timetable for the return of Yankees pitcher Michael Pineda continues to get pushed back. The latest update from New York manager Joe Girardi is that the pitcher is unlikely to return before August. He has been on the disabled list since May 6 due to a teres major strain in his right (throwing) shoulder. Girardi also added that he will start throwing this week, but will need a full six weeks to get back into shape - that is like going through another spring training. Despite the pine tar incidents earlier in the season that led to a suspension, he had posted a 1.83 ERA and a strike out to walk ratio of 15/3.
6/12/14: There is no doubt that Derek Jeter is a legend with the Yankees, is a surefire first ballot hall of famer, and has had a great career. Just not this season. In his final season, he is not the same player he was for the first 18 years of his career. His OPS and slugging percentage are among the worst in the league and has not been able to hit extra base hits. If he was a young guy, he would be on the bench or in the minors. But Jeter's presence goes beyond the batter's box, and he is a big reason that the Yankees have won a lot of World Series titles over the past two decades.
6/6/14: The Yankees took two of three from the St. Louis Cardinals last week, and that was the good news for the Yankees. The bad news is that the team has shut down starting pitcher Michael Pineda and may be lucky to get him back by the All-Star break. Pineda was scheduled to throw in a live spring training game (in June?), but an MRI showed inflammation in his upper back. Pineda, of course, was caught twice this season with pine tar and was suspended for the second violation. He actually had pitched well in his four starts, posting a 1.83 ERA with a 15 to 3 strikeout to walk ratio.
5/29/14: The Yankees are looking pretty smart and probably making the late George Steinbrenner proud. Not in their overall record, they are playing like an average team so far this season. But in their signing of Japanese league superstar pitcher Masahiro Tanaka. Tanaka fell to 5-1 on the season last week against the Cubs. Until then, he had not lost a game in nearly two full years - running his consecutive wins streak to a whopping 30 games. If he can continue to get five wins for every loss, then the Yankees will be thrilled with their $150 million investment.
5/22/14: There is plenty of time throughout the season to discuss how the Yankees are faring in the AL East and the pennant chase. For now, let's take a look at the swan song for shortstop Derek Jeter. He is one of the few players in any sport to get retirement gifts from his opponents. The Houston Astros gave him cowboy boots. The L.A. Angels gave him a pinstriped surfboard, but the Mets beat them both. They gave him a framed #2 made up of New York City subway tiles (with blue and orange trim. They also made a donation to his charity for $22,222.22. The Mets may not win on the field, but they know how to give a gift.
5/15/14: The 2014 season is long time Yankees' shortstop and future Hall of Famer Derek Jeter's final year, so there are going to be some interesting side stories along the way. In possibly his last visit to Anaheim, the Angels gave him a pinstriped surf board. In a game in Milwaukee last week, a fan rushed the field to ask Jeter for a hug. The fan got a more physical response from security. The Yankees wound up winning that game, 5-3. Masahiro Tanaka pitched into the seventh inning in the Yankees first visit to Milwaukee since 2005.
5/8/14: After two decades, it is tough to find new 'firsts' for legendary shortstop Derek Jeter. He found a dubious one last Friday in a 14 inning loss to the Tampa Bay Rays. Jeter went 0-7 at the plate, which included five ground outs and two fly outs. He has gone hitless in nearly 600 games in his career, which is equal to not getting a hit in four season's worth of regular season games. On the other hand, it would also be equivalent to getting a hit in every game for about 14 years - which is much nicer way to look at his career.
5/1/14: The Yankee's have a bit of a problem on their hands with starting pitcher Michael Pineda. Pineda was caught twice in the past few weeks with pine tar, both against the Red Sox. Nothing happened after the first incident, but the second one was far more egregious when he pasted it on his neck. Many pitchers, under the cloak of anonymity claim they use pine tar to help grip the ball. It actually seems like an accepted part of the game. However, with the obvious violations of Pineda, it is becoming a story. He was suspended for 10 games, which means he will likely miss two starts. Not really a tough punishment, but the Yankees will have to monitor him.
4/24/14: It looks like the Yankees may be back. While many people hate to see that, in all fairness, it is good for Major League Baseball when the Yankees are a competitive team. Through three weeks of the season, they held a two game lead on the AL East. They may just now be getting better, too. First baseman Mark Teixeira is back. If he can get anywhere near his all-star from from a few years ago, then this is a pretty formidable lineup. That is even more telling considering the Yankee's pitching has been pretty solid this season. It looks like the team is recommitted to winning after kind of taking the last couple of seasons off.
4/17/14: The Yankees are back with something to prove this season. They were shut out of the playoffs in 2013, so they have made some major upgrades for the final season of shortstop Derek Jeter's marvelous career. Through a couple weeks of the season, the Yankees have already found some controversy with a substance (believed to be pine tar) on the hand of starting pitcher Michael Pineda. Nothing came of it, but if it happens again...New York is a half game behind the Blue Jays, who have sprinted off to a strong start, winning five games on the road already.

2/28/13: The Yankees got some good news and bad news this week. First, ace close Mauriano Soriano is making his first throws since tearing his ACL last year. He is getting old, but can still pitch. Hopefully for the Yankees, he can return to his previous dominant form. Next, team leader Derek Jeter is starting to practice again. He broke his ankle last year and does not believe that he will have any problem playing again. But the bad news is that Curtis Granderson broke his forearm after getting hit by a pitch. Granderson is out 10 weeks or two and a half months. Johnny Damon believes that he can fill in for the meantime, but it is a tough blow to start the season.
10/4/12 ? It took 162 games but the Yankees finally got the Baltimore Orioles off their backs to win the American League East. The New York Yankees manhandled the Boston Red Sox 14-2 to win their 13th AL East title in 17 years. Robinson Cano hit two home runs and drove in six runs. Curtis Granderson also hit two home runs and Hiroki Kuroda (16-11) pitched seven strong innings allowing only two runs to show the Yankees that he is ready for the postseason. With the Orioles loss to Tampa Bay earlier in the day, all the Yankees needed to do was win against Baltimore to wrap up the AL East. The Baltimore Orioles will still advance to the postseason, but have to play in the Wild Card game against the Texas Rangers. The Yankees will face the winner of their matchup.
The New York Yankees. Love them or hate then, it remains undisputed that the New York Yankees are the most illustrious franchise in the history of Major League Baseball. Or maybe even sports in general. While the name of the stadium shares the same name as the Yankee Stadium that opened in 1923, this definitely isn't your grandfather's Yankee Stadium. This newer version opened in 2009 and is a mixture of the illustrious history of the franchise and all the modern amenities expected in this day and age. Paying tribute to the history of the franchise, there are a number features for visitors to bask in the glow of Yankee past, such as an official museum. From champion rings, a ?Ball Wall', to countless other pieces of memorabilia, a step through the museum is a trip down baseball history. The gameday experience is as good as any you will find in the country. Clear viewing angles accommodate any seat in the house, in addition to 1,100 HD video monitors and a total space that is over 60 percent larger than the old Yankee stadium. In the stadium's short history, it has already seen plenty of noteworthy events. With the Yankees being the powerhouse franchise, they are involved in important games seemingly every year. In fact, in the very first year of the stadium, the Yankees won the World Series. The excellent facilities have also played host to several other types of events in the past. These events include college football games, boxing matches, and concerts. For a blend of old and new and a display of true sporting greatness, try Yankee Stadium (even if you plan to boo them the entire time).
In the most unexpected trade of the season, The New York Yankees have acquired Japanese outfielder Ichiro Suzuki from the Seattle Mariners. The Yankees sent minor league pitchers D.J. Mitchell and Danny Farquhar to Seattle in exchange for baseball's single-season hit king. Ichiro will become the Yankees regular left fielder, replacing the speedy injured Brett Gardner. The trade occurred with the Yankees in Seattle for a three-game series with the Mariners. Ichiro took a bow during his first at-bat as a Yankee and went straight to work grabbing his first hit and stealing his first base. The 38-year-old is hitting .261 with four homers and 16 stolen bases on the year.
The New York Yankees acquired Seattle Mariners' right fielder Ichiro Suzuki on Monday afternoon, dealing two minor league pitchers D.J. Mitchell and Danny Fahrquar. Ichiro, who the Yankees mainly acquired to fill a spot in the outfield while Brett Gardner is on the DL, made his debut for the Yankees on Monday night at Safeco Field against his former team only hours after he was traded. On Wednesday night, the Yankees lost Alex Rodriguez for 6-8 weeks when he was hit by a pitch in his wrist suffering a fracture that left him writhing in pain in the batter's box. The Yankees will open a three-game series with the Red Sox beginning on Friday night at Yankee Stadium.
The New York Yankees, who once upon a time were floundering in third place in the AL East, now have a commanding 5-game lead in first place ahead of the Baltimore Orioles. The 46-29 Yankees suffered a loss on Thursday night however, as the Chicago White Sox rallied for three runs in the top of the 9th inning in the first game of their four-game set with the Yankees. David Robertson was handed the loss in the 4-3 final. On Friday night, Adam Warren will make his first start for the Yankees in place of the injured CC Sabathia who is on the DL with a groin injury. Andy Pettitte also went down earlier this week, suffering a fractured ankle in his last start, which will likely keep him out for up to 2 months.
After winning 10 straight, the New York Yankees dropped the last two games of their three-game set with the Atlanta Braves this week, bringing them back down to earth just in time for a Subway Series rematch this weekend. The Yankees swept the Braves in Atlanta a few weeks ago, the Braves got their revenge back at Yankee Stadium this week. The loss went to Phil Hughes, who dropped to 7-6 on the season. The Yankees will send Andy Pettitte to the mound on Friday against the Mets' Jon Niese, followed by Ivan Nova on Saturday and CC Sabathia on Sunday, facing the 11-1 R.A. Dickey in what is sure to be a good-old-fashioned pitcher's duel.
The New York Yankees are red-hot right now and their bats are beginning to come alive, which usually means trouble for the rest of the league. Despite their bullpen problems and their shaky starting pitching, the Yankees have managed to roll off six straight wins, including back-to-back sweeps of the New York Mets and the Atlanta Braves. Winners of 9 of their last 10, the Yankees are now 37-25 and 0.5 games ahead of the Baltimore Orioles in first place in the AL East. A huge weekend series against the Washington Nationals looms ahead for the Yankees as they look to keep their hot-streak alive.
The New York Yankees are beginning to heat up at just the right time, as they open the first of two series against the New York Mets on Friday night at Yankee Stadium with Hiroki Kuroda on the mound going up against Mets' ace Johan Santana, fresh off of last Friday's no-hitter. The Yankees dropped the third game of their series with the Tampa Bay Rays on Thursday night 7-3, but still came away with a series win and will head into their interleague matchup with their bats beginning to heat up. Increased production from the likes of Mark Teixeira and Alex Rodriguez have led to the Yankees' recent success and they are 31-25, 0.5 games out of the division lead.
Andy Pettitte has been everything the New York Yankees could have asked for after the left hander came out of retirement. Pettitte has one 3-2 in five starts since rejoining the Yankees with a 2.78 ERA. Pettitte has gone at least six innings in all of his starts so far and at least seven in his last four. Pettitte was dominant in his last start striking out ten and giving up only two with no runs allowed in 7.1 innings against the Tampa Bay Rays. The Yankees hope Pettitte can spark the rest of the Yankees rotation, like the next night when Ivan Nova followed up Pettitte's performance allowing only one run in eight innings.
Stuck right in the middle of one of the most competitive divisions in baseball as we head into June, the 27-23 New York Yankees are 1.5 games behind the Orioles and Rays for the division lead and are beginning a weekend series against the Detroit Tigers on Friday night, the team that eliminated them from the postseason in 2011. CC Sabathia will be on the mound in the first game of the series, and at 6-2 with a 3.66 ERA so far this season, he's been the only stable, reliable arm in the Yankees' shaky starting rotation. The rest of the rotation has been inconsistent and Yankees lineup has not been able to rely on the long-ball as of late, which has been a factor in their recent struggles.

Andy Pettitte also went down earlier this week, suffering a fractured ankle in his last start, which will likely keep him out for up to 2 months.
5/31/12 - New York Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira is starting to heat up. Teixeira hit .458 with three doubles, four home runs and nine RBIs during the Yankees six game West Coast road trip. The Yankees hope Teixeira's success against the Oakland A's and Los Angeles Angels can reverse what has been a slow start to the season. The Yankees need their first baseman to start hitting in order to erase their current deficit in the AL East. A Teixeria take off could spark a middle of the lineup, including Robinson Cano and Alex Rodriguez, that has recently struggled hitting with runners in scoring position.
5/25/12 After a rough stretch in which they lost 6 out of 7 games to the Baltimore Orioles, Toronto Blue Jays, Cincinnati Reds, and Kansas City Royals, the New York Yankees managed to win the final two games of their series with Kansas City and get back on track once again. They were helped out by a 2 HR effort from Alex Rodriguez on Wednesday in an 8-3 win over the Royals. Now, the 23-21 Yankees, in 4th place in the AL East, will start a three-game set with the Oakland Athletics on Friday night with Ivan Nova on the mound. On Saturday, Yankees ace CC Sabathia will go up against former Yankee Bartolo Colon.
5/18/12 With injuries to Mariano Rivera and David Robertson all but decimating their bullpen, the New York Yankees were swept by the Toronto Blue Jays in a short 2-game series this week. Beginning on Friday night, they will open their first interleague series of the year as the Cincinnati Reds visit the Bronx. The Yankees' pitching, which many thought would be vastly improved heading into this season, as now proved to be their biggest issue, with injuries to their key bullpen staples and starter Michael Pineda putting gaping holes in their staff. Poor starts by Freddy Garcia and Phil Hughes have only made matters worse. Andy Pettitte will make his second start of the season against Cincinnati on Friday night.
5/11/12 The devastating loss of legendary closer Mariano Rivera to an ACL tear has taken its toll already, as the Yankees saw new closer David Robertson blow a late lead to the Tampa Bay Rays in the second game of their three-game set. The Yankees were able to take the rubber-match from the Rays however, and with a 17-14 record are 2.5 games out of first place in the AL East, behind the division-leading Baltimore Orioles and Tampa Bay Rays, who are both 20-12. The Yanks are certainly not struggling to produce offensively, as they are third in the league in slugging percentage, on-base percentage and batting average.
5/3/12 - New York Yankees closer Mariano Rivera was taken off the field of Kauffman Stadium during batting practice after he twisted his knee trying to catch a fly ball before Thursday's game between the Yankees and Kansas City Royals. Rivera is a regular fixture catching balls during batting practice as a way to stay in shape. The durable closer was running toward the center-field wall when his knee buckled and he crashed into the wall. He was taken off the field in a cart and evaluated by both Royals' and Yankees' physicians. The Yankees announced a diagnosis of a twisted right knee. Rivera was taken to Kansas University MedWest hospital for an MRI. This season, Rivera is 1-1 with five saves and a 2.16 ERA.
5/4/12 With Mariano Rivera falling victim to an ACL injury during batting practice before the New York Yankees' series-opening game against the Kansas City Royals, the Yankees have lost their future Hall of Fame closer for what is likely to be the rest of the season. With David Robertson likely to take his place, the Yankees will have a gaping hole in their bullpen, the likes of which they haven't seen in years. At 13-12, the Yankees are currently in 4th place in the AL East, 4.5 games behind the division-leading Tampa Bay Rays. They have lost three in a row and six of their last nine games.
4/24/12 - Michael Pineda the prized offseason acquisition of the New York Yankees will undergo surgery to repair a tear in his labrum and will miss the rest of the 2012 season. The 23-year-old Pineda was traded to the Yankees for Jesus Montero, the top catching prospect in the Yankees organization, from the Seattle Mariners in January. After an impressive rookie year with the Mariners, Pineda was traded to the Yankees for Montero because of the strong pitching depth in the Mariners organization. Pineda was supposed to slot into the number 2 spot in the rotation behind CC Sabathia. However, during an extended spring training game Saturday, Pineda felt weakness in his shoulder. The tear was discovered in a medical exam soon after. It will take Pineda at least 12 months to recover, as it stands he will miss all of 2012 and a month of the 2013 season.
It's not often the New York Yankees feel relieved to be a .500 ball club, but that's exactly where they are now. After being on the wrong end of a sweep in Tampa Bay, the Yankees bounced back for three straight wins against the Orioles in Baltimore. The starting roation could become a concern throughout the season as Ivan Nova seemed to be the only pitcher to start the season on the right foot. The Yankees hope their first series at home against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim can help them build on their current early season win streak.
