Hot and cold Yankees: Jeter and Ibanez

HOT: Derek Jeter - Jeter went 0-for-3 last night to snap a nine game hitting streak, but he still got on base twice last night and I wanted to give him props for the streak. He started off red hot before a rough May. Now he's hitting .311/.354/.356/.710 over his last 10 games. Not a lot ...

The most significant injury was to Nova, who left the game after he injured his ankle fielding a ground ball in the 6th. They are ...

Yankees DH’s have big night as Montero returns

The Yankees former top prospect, Jesus Montero, had a good night in his return to Yankee Stadium, hitting a solo shot in the 6th inning, but the pair who replaced him, Raul Ibanez and Andruw Jones, had a pretty good night themselves.

Yankees expect to be without Gardner another 15-25 days

It's been almost a month since Brett Gardner hurt his elbow, but it's going to be at least another 15-25 more days without him after his latest setback while rehabbing in a minor league game. “He will not pick up a bat for 10 days, then we’ll go from there," Girardi told Mark Feinsand of the ...
