Ellsbury to be activated Wednesday; Miller’s return depends on tonight

Confirming a report from George King, the Yankees expect to activate Jacoby Ellsbury from the disabled list on Wednesday. “That is (the) plan,” general manager Brian Cashman wrote in a text message. When the Yankees activate closer Andrew Miller will depend on how things go in tonight’s rehab outing...

Yankees to activate Jacoby Ellsbury off DL on Wednesday

The Yankees will activate Jacoby Ellsbury off the 15-day DL on Wednesday, Brian Cashman confirmed to George King. Ellsbury has been out since May 19th due to a right knee injury. I’m guessing Gregorio Petit will be sent to Triple-A to clear a roster spot. Ellsbury was scheduled to play in a minor league...

Game Notes: Colome vs Volquez

Yesterday the Rays took a much needed 8-1 victory over the Yankees, thanks in part to some sloppy New York defense, timely hitting, and a great performance on the mound from Erasmo Ramirez who was touching the mid 90's. Tonight, the Rays will (weather permitting) take on the reigning AL Champions, the Kansas City Royals at Kauffman Stadium. Going to the mound for the Rays will be the highly inconsistent Alex Colome who soldiered on in his last start as he gave up five runs on eight hits, but was able to last seven innings. He also struck out three and walked one during the outing. So far...

Orioles lineup vs. Twins - School of Roch

The Orioles still haven't announced their roster move for tonight's series opener in Minnesota. Outfielder Nolan Reimold is on paternity leave until Thursday and infielder Ryan Flaherty is expected to be recalled from Triple-A Norfolk. Assuming that's the move, Flaherty is expected to remain with the Orioles after Reimold returns...

Are the Yankees already dodging a bullet with Cano’s contract?

Obviously a lot of talk today and tonight about deserving all-stars, and borderline all-stars; about all-star mistakes and all-star snubs. Through all of this, the name Robinson Cano hasn’t been mentioned, and really hasn’t deserved to be mentioned. More than a year ago, when the Yankees refused to match the Mariners’ offer and let Cano […] The post Are the Yankees already dodging a bullet with Cano’s contract? appeared first on The LoHud Yankees Blog.

Can Brett Gardner go from college walk-on to American League all-star?

According to the FanGraphs version of WAR, Brett Gardner has been the eighth-most-valuable outfielder in the American League. That’s perhaps not surprising. What might be surprising is that all of Gardner’s value — according to that stat, anyway — has come from his bat. He’s actually lost points because of his defense. Maybe Gardner’s not […] The post Can Brett Gardner go from college walk-on to American League all-star? appeared first on The LoHud Yankees Blog.

Teixeira leads the league in RBI, but is there room for him on the All-Star roster?

With Miguel Cabrera on the disabled list, have Mark Teixeira’s chances of making the All-Star team significantly improved? The American League’s first base replacement in the starting lineup will be whoever wins the players’ vote. I’m not sure which direction the players will go, but Albert Pujols wouldn’t surprise me. Here are a few to […] The post Teixeira leads the league in RBI, but is there room for him on the All-Star roster? appeared first on The LoHud Yankees Blog.

Is Dellin Betances still a lock for the All-Star team?

For good reason, there seems to be an assumption Dellin Betances is a lock for the American League all-star team, and I tend to think that will ultimately prove true when the team is announced tonight. The players’ ballot includes spots for three relief pitchers, and based on both numbers and talent, Betances has a […] The post Is Dellin Betances still a lock for the All-Star team? appeared first on The LoHud Yankees Blog.
