This morning I wrote that the Yankees needed to do something with infielder Eduardo Nunez, who has been experiencing big problems defensively, but I didn't think it would happen this quickly. The Yankees have demoted Nunez to Triple-A Friday afternoon and activated Eric Chavez, who was on the 7-day DL with a concussion, in his place, ...
Eric Chavez has resumed baseball activities and is waiting for concussion test results before being cleared to return to the team. He initially took a test on Wednesday before taking another one on Thursday and they are waiting for results on the second test. "We're just waiting for him to be cleared by Major League Baseball," ...
Yankees left fielder Brett Gardner played in his second rehab game on Wednesday and Eric Chavez is awaiting test results as both players could be back on the field by this weekend. Gardner, who hurt his elbow making a diving catch on April 17, went 1-for-2 with a pair of walks and played left field again. ...
Via Sweeney Murti of WFAN, Jayson Nix has been called up by the Yankees to replace Eric Chavez. The corresponding move will likely be to place Chavez on the DL for his whiplash/concussion injury. Nix has played every position except first and catcher. He only has one option, and he's no whiz with the bat, but ...
There’s one glaring omission in the Yankees bench this year: we are missing having that one, big bat looming in the late innings capable of changing a game with one mighty swing. In years past, hitters such as Daryl Strawberry, Jesse Barfield, Chili Davis and Jorge Posada have lay in wait; chomping at the bit ...
I wanted to focus on our Designated Hitter situation, both currently and what it might be after Brett Gardner comes back, and figure out if it is really best to trot out Andruw Jones on a regular basis against lefties. I also wanted to focus on how our current DH production matches Jesus Montero’s production ...
It took the Yankees bats a little while to wake up, but yesterday's five home run performance during the celebration of Fenway Park leaves them with 24 homers, the most in the major leagues. The homers tend to pile up quickly though when Curtis Granderson smacks three on Thursday night followed by a five homer outbreak ...
I strongly disliked the Jesus Montero-Michael Pineda for many reasons. Pineda’s weak second half in 2011 scared me. Shipping away a 22-year-old hitter who was tailor made for Yankee Stadium angered me. Trading a near sure-thing for a question mark with potential made me feel that Brian Cashman’s legacy now depends on the success or ...
We've been discussing it for years but it is finally happening. Derek Jeter is slowly beeing weened out of his shortstop position and Alex Rodriguez isn't far behind him. Last night, Yankees manager Joe Girardi started Jeter at DH while allowing Eduardo Nunez to start at short against the lefty and expect that to just keep ...
At around 3:00 pm today, James Shields of the pesky Tampa Bay Rays will deliver the first pitch of the season to New York Yankees captain Derek Jeter, and let me tell you, I couldn’t be more excited to face a guy who threw eleven complete games last year. But before I get into the nitty ...
