Gardner and Ellsbury sit vs. Sale…with injuries

Brett+Gardner+Texas+Rangers+v+New+York+Yankees+Qn5LZICHg0pl (1)

The Yankees are facing the White Sox ace Chris Sale today in the final game of this three game set and if there's one thing the Yankees lineup is lacking, it's their main lefty hitters. Brian McCann, Brett Gardner and Jacoby Ellsbury all weren't in the lineup, but in the case of Gardner and Ellsbury, ...

Yankees Notes: Beltran, Jeter, Phelps, Torre

What would ‘The Boss’ think of the 2014 Yankees?

george steinbrenner

George Steinbrenner passed away on July 13, 2010, and it was a devastating loss for the Yankees organization.

David Phelps 4

David Phelps hasn't felt pain in his triceps for a week and he anticipates to be back by the beginning of September, but with Michael Pineda back in the Yankees rotation and Shane Greene pitching so well, you'd have to wonder if Phelps role could be in the bullpen as the Yankees go down the ...

Derek+Jeter+New+York+Yankees+v+Tampa+Bay+Rays+9494Z9oh-Oil

Derek Jeter has made it perfectly clear that he's not a fan of being the designated hitter. In fact, he said this last night: “I don’t DH much. You go in the cage between at-bats. That’s about it. It’s not something that I do a lot of. To be honest with you, I’m not sure how ...
