Carlos Beltran has swelling in his knee

Carlos Beltran 9

If you saw the lineup this evening and saw Brian McCann as the designated hitter, there's a reason for that: Carlos Beltran has a knee injury. Beltran sent Joe Girardi a text message prior to batting practice to further explain his knee injury. Girardi then explained to reporters what was the issue. “He had a little swelling ...

Girardi reflects on Soriano being DFA’d

Alfonso Soriano

If you've been following along with the blog this morning, the Yankees had made two separate transactions; one that doesn't really affect the roster until Wednesday and one that affects the roster effective immediately. Vidal Nuno was sent to the Diamondbacks for Brandon McCarthy and Alfonso Soriano was designated for assignment to put Bruce Billings ...

Joe Girardi discouraged about lineup woes

Joe Girardi 7

The Yankees are going to be without the bat of Jacoby Ellsbury and the power of Mark Teixeira, meaning they are going to have to find a way to manufacture runs without those two in the lineup.

Brian+McCann+Toronto+Blue+Jays+v+New+York+zQUFptLM39el

After last night's extra inning loss, the media asked Brian McCann to assess himself for the first 81 games of the season. His answer? "Horrible." McCann wasn't in the lineup today and the media spend most of the pregame press conference asking Joe Girardi about why he thinks McCann believes he's performing terribly and Girardi just figured ...

Soriano gets a chance to hit against Lester

Alfonso+Soriano

Ichiro Suzuki has been the Yankees most consistent hitter against lefties; in fact, he has an .841 OPS. So it was quite puzzling to see Ichiro out of the lineup this evening against Jon Lester, the left handed ace for the Boston Red Sox. Some of the notable left handed hitters were in the lineup facing Lester ...
