New York Yankees InjuriesUp to the minute news on New York Yankees Injuries
First, Robinson Cano, and now David Price? Credit the Mariners with this much: They sure know how to stir up the Hot Stove rumor mill. One day after emerging as the top alternative if Cano, the winter’s top free agent, chooses not to return to the New York Yankees, the Mariners are now linked in a trade rumor to Price, the 2012 Cy Young Award winner from the Tampa Bay Rays. In fact, according to Yahoo.com’s Jeff Passan, the Mariners are well positioned to land Price, whom the money-crunched Rays are shopping, because they have the sort of young talent … Read more »
The new deal with the Yankees wasn’t official yet and on Wednesday an over/under number had been posted in Las Vegas regarding the number of games Jacoby Ellsbury will play next season. Such is his reputation for being injury-prone, which in Boston led to a perception that Ellsbury was soft as well, at times reluctant to play if he wasn’t completely healthy.
By Jim Donaldson Scott Boras is better at his job than Brian Cashman is at his. Boras showed why he has a well-deserved reputation as a super agent, negotiating a super deal for Jacoby Ellsbury with New York Yankees -- a reported 7-year contract worth a $153 million, with an option for an eighth year.. Given that Ellsbury's 30 years old and has had some bad luck with injuries, that's more money, and more years, than anybody without an unlimited budget would give him. Cashman, the Yankees' GM, doesn't have to think -- he only has to spend. The Ellsbury deal...
Jacoby Ellsbury to New York Yankees: Injury-prone label unfair, but Boston Red Sox were right to move on

He is eight weeks into an offseason that began way too early, eight weeks removed from his lowest victory total in seven years, and the highest ERA of his career.

Just a few late-afternoon notes as I try to get back in the swing of things. • First, a heads up that Mark Teixeira is going to be on the YES Network’s Hot Stove show tonight at 6:30 p.m. ET.

So the Yankees are all in now, right? Signing Brian McCann, a perfect fit for them in so many ways, sure seems to be a way of telling the baseball world that for all the talk of age, injuries and the luxury-tax threshold, they have every intention of reclaiming a spot in October next season.

There was never any doubt that Derek Jeter would return to the Yankees in 2014, but coming off a season in which he made $17 million but managed to play just 17 games due to injury, it looked as though he was going to be forced to pick up the $9.5 million player option on his […]
Despite coming off an injury-plagued season, the New York Yankees chose to reward captain Derek Jeter for all his years of good service by re-signing the shortstop to a $12 million contract for 2014. In the process, the Yankees will also save money on their goal of falling beneath the $189 million threshold for 2014. The new contract is $2.5 million more than the player option Jeter could have picked up. A source with knowledge of the negotiations told ESPN New York that the talks were largely held between Jeter and team owner Hal Steinbrenner, who both live in Tampa.

Finalists for the Gold Glove Award were announced Friday, and the Red Sox have three players in contention: Dustin Pedroia at second base, Jacoby Ellsbury in center field and Shane Victorino in right field. Pedroia, who won the award in 2008 and again in 2011, is vying for his third career Gold Glove at second base, as is Yankees star Robinson Cano, who took home the honors in 2010 and again last year. They'll face competition from the Rays' Ben Zobrist, the third and final American League nominee at second base.
NEW YORK -- Whenever the Yankees don't play fall baseball, someone has to take the fall and in this case, they have isolated the cause of their problems in 2013 and determined it it was two-fold: strength and conditioning coach Dana Cavalea and advance scout Charlie Wonsowicz, both of whom had been with the club for more than a decade. I don't know why Wonz got the axe, but according to a mole in the Yankees' clubhouse, the team somehow decided to blame Cavalea for the unprecedented rash of injuries that hit the aging Yankees roster last season.
The Yankees are worth $3.3 billion, making them the most valuable franchise in baseball according to Bloomberg. Second on the list are the Dodgers, valued at $2.1 billion. Bloomberg has a pretty cool graphic explaining where the value of each team comes from. It’s worth noting that Bloomberg’s rankings have the Indians, Royals and Rays
According to Joel Sherman, the Yankees have fired strength and conditioning coach Dana Cavalea. Assumption would be that this is a reaction to the team’s injury problems this season. Cavalea had been in that role since 2007, and had previously served as a strength and conditioning coach in spring training since 2003. He’s previously worked

I posted this yesterday, and literally within seconds, the Yankees sent the email announcing Joe Girardi had re-signed. So, naturally, it was pretty easy to miss.

Remember a little more than a year ago, when Alex Rodriguez found out he needed hip surgery?

TAMPA – Hal Steinbrenner loved the job Joe Girardi did through so many injuries this season and extended a contract offer he feels represents just how badly the Yankees want to retain the manager, but the managing general partner accentuated a decision is needed relatively quickly because of all the work the team has in front of it this offseason. “I told Joe that my family thinks he did a great job this year considering the adversity, which was considerable, and that we want him back,” Steinbrenner said during an hour-long interview with The Post on Tuesday. “We understand there are...

By Brian MacPhersonST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Though nothing ever figures to approach the rivalry between the Red Sox and the New York Yankees, no other team has competed head-to-head with the Red Sox in recent years like Joe Maddon's Tampa Bay Rays. "In the recent past, regular season and playoffs, we've done pretty well against them," Maddon said before Game Three at Tropicana Field. "Their team this year is different. There's a lot of new faces there. ... They had their way with us this year. We've got to figure this out fast, man." Though Boston has an immensely more talented team than it...
