Game 100: Rangers (40-60) @ Yanks (51-48)

NEW YORK -- We have reached the century mark of this 2014 season, and in spite of all the injuries, the offensive underproduction, and all-around inconsistency, the Yankees remain in the thick of the AL East race, sitting four games behind the Baltimore Orioles, even with yet another player headed to the DL (Kelly Johnson, groin strain). Joe Girardi burned through his bullpen in Tuesday night's 14-inning, 2-1 win, so the Yankees recalled RHP Chris Leroux from Triple-A Scranton in case David Phelps needs help tonight.

Rookie righthander Greene dazzles as Yankees shut out Orioles

It was a crushing blow for the Yankees this past week when ace Masahiro Tanaka was lost for a minimum of six weeks to an elbow injury. Manager Joe Girardi suggested that perhaps this dark cloud could come with a silver lining in the form of someone stepping up to prove he belongs in the Bombers’ starting rotation. That someone could be Shane Greene.
