Headley delivers in wild Yankees debut

Injuries suggest the Yankees need pitching, but on Tuesday they traded for a hitter and immediately showed why. Against the worst pitching staff in the American League, the Yankees were held scoreless through 12 innings and very nearly lost 13th, but after all that futility, new third baseman Chase Headley delivered a walk-off single in […] The post Headley delivers in wild Yankees debut appeared first on The LoHud Yankees Blog.

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.

Darvish in favor of six-man rotation

NEW YORK -- At the All-Star Game last week, Texas Rangers ace Yu Darvish talked about having six-man pitching rotations as a means to stem the wave of recent arm injuries in baseball. Discussions about six-man rotations have occurred more frequently this season in the wake of a multitude of players getting hurt and needing reconstructive elbow surgery. Yankees ace Masahiro Tanaka, like Darvish a superstar in Japan before coming to Major League Baseball, was put on the disabled list July 9 with a partially torn ligament in his right elbow.

Cashman: 'I have more work to do'

NEW YORK -- Yankees GM Brian Cashman admitted today that the acquisition of Chase Headley was the culmination of a two-year pursuit that began when Alex Rodriguez had his second hip surgery before the start of the 2012 season. But by no means does he consider the 2014 Yankees a finished product. "I have more work to do," he said. "I’m going to still continue to try to improve on what we have." In the past couple of weeks, Cashman has added a starting pitcher, Brandon McCarthy, and Headley without giving up very much.

Peavy out to show he's not a one-win pony

TORONTO—Score 14 runs, win valuable prizes? Well, maybe not. But by scoring 14 runs against the Blue Jays here Monday night, the most runs they’ve scored in a game all season, the Red Sox have shed the label of the league’s weakest offense. The Sox, in fact, leapfrogged five other teams to rank 10th in runs scored, ahead of the Mariners, Rays, Yankees, Royals and Astros. Since the Sox began their current hot streak on July 9, after losing seven of the first eight games of a 10-game homestand, here is how they rank among the American League’s five hottest teams: SOX 8-1 .
