Heading into 2013, the Yankees most glaring weakness figured to be their offense. They led the major leagues in home runs in 2012 with 245, and coming into this season 200 of them were gone from the lineup. The major names missing? Curtis Granderson, Mark Teixeira, Alex Rodriguez, Derek Jeter, Nick Swisher, Russell Martin, Raul Ibanez, ...
Before the season started the two things that we expected to be good from the Yankees were Robinson Cano and the pitching staff. Unfortunately, that wasn't the case the first week of the season and they have gotten off to a slow 2-4 start. That doesn't mean that it's time to panic or give up on ...
Today is one of the best days of the year: Opening Day! The Yankees, of course, will be in the Bronx taking on Jon Lester and the Red Sox at 1:00 p.m. today with CC Sabathia on the mound. Clay Rapada will not be joining them as he was designated for assignment over the weekend to ...
The Yankees lost to Robinson Cano, Vidal Nuno and Team Dominican Republic 8-2 yesterday. That, of course, was secondary news to Mark Teixeira's injury. • The Yankees will look for first AND third basemen to try to replace Teixeira. • Travis Hafner is not an option. • Jon Heyman suggested Michael Cuddyer, Justin Morneau, Carlos Pena, Casey Kotchman, Greg Dobbs, Carlos Lee, ...

Most of the pitching staff had the day off. • Derek Jeter went through infield drills and batting practice, but did not run the bases. • Chien-Ming Wang's agent said he's off the market until he pitches for Taiwan in the WBC. • ...
The Yankees released their new numbers. With 84 players in camp, retired numbers, soon to be retired numbers, and coaches there was a chance they would go to triple digits. Unfortunately they just doubled up on a few players. Here are the notable new numbers: • No. 22 - Matt Diaz, No. 27 - Dan Johnson, No. 33 - Travis ...
The Yankees have announced that they've reached an agreement on a one-year, major league deal with DH Travis Hafner and have designated Russ Canzler for assignment to make room on the 40-man roster for him. The deal with worth $2 million, according to Ken Davidoff of the NY Post, with another potential $4 million in reachable incentives, per an AP ...
There is no deal imminent, but the Yankees are currently considering going after Travis Hafner as a potential left-handed DH, according to David Waldstein of the NY Times. Hafner made $13 million last season, but the Indians paid him $2.75 million as a buyout rather than pick up his option for this season. The reason is simple, ...
In their search to find a team willing to trade a DH-type for A.J. Burnett, the Yankees briefly considered a deal that would have netted them Indians' DH Travis Hafner, but according to Nick Camino of WTAM 1100 in Cleveland, those talks are over. The 34-year-old Hafner has averaged just 91 games per year over the ...
